Stayed only 1 night but made friends with a couple of big cockroaches. Plenty of heat... The thermostat wouldn't shut off had to have them shut it off at the breaker panel at midnight so we didn't bake. No insulation between floors meant we got plenty close to the people up stairs. No hot water at the bathroom sink was... More

We arrived at Port Aransas on New Years Eve and checked into another local hotel. We were not pleased at all. It was without a table, hangers, and only 1 chair. It was not at all as advertised and reviews. Plus it was very dirty and we saw lil buddys crawling around. So at dinner that night on my IPHONE... More

This hotel is just blocks from the beach and very convenient. The front desk clerk, Desda, was very helpful and even offered us a room upgrade! The hotel offers free breakfast every morning which saves $$$. The breakfast consists of breads, scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, bacon, fruit, yogurt, cereal and a pancake machine! The one-bedroom suite was very roomy for... More
