Wow, more improvements. Jennifer and the staff are always making improvements. This year we are getting a new pool and hot tub. Also the Lanai has been remodeled. Great place to spend the winter!! On the main thorough fair. Laundry, restaurants and ferry close by.

My wife and I arrived in Port Aransas in late November 2015 for a gathering of friends and family. We were fortunate to get a nice clean, comfortable room at the Sharkreef Resort. The facility is large with a nice outdoor area including a pool and BBQ pits. The staff and services were excellent and there were several friendly fisherman... More

We've stayed at the Shark Reef twice now and enjoyed both times immensely. Rates are reasonable for Port Aransas and the rooms are comfortable and nicely equipped. We are both diabetics and need fridges in our rooms. Shark Reef had them. The beds were comfortable, warm, and cozy. The pool was warm and not crowded with small fry, splashing and... More

Nicely restored older motel, solid. Bright charming rooms. Very comfortable bed. Very modern flat screen TV. We stayed in a King suite (with mini kitchen). Staff very friendly and accommodating. They have a decent free continental breakfast. There is parking for boat trailers. (This is a fishing community.) The subcontracted WiFi worked well for me. We talked with the manager,... More

The amount I booked for on booking.com was not the amount they tried to charge me. I pointed that out and got a $20.00 refund. We were there in December last year, and when we walked in we found a space heater in the middle of the floor as our only way of heating the room. The bathroom was in... More

This was the worst hotel ever. The tables were a sticky mess. It wouldn't wash off. The electricity in the living room didn't work. The hideaway bed was so bad the kids cried when they tried to lay on it. The fans didn't work. People were walking around our cars in the parking lot. I had to leave that night.... More

I wanted to start off by saying that I don't know where exactly you stayed, but I can't find any of these issues in any of our past maintenance or housekeeping records. I am sorry that you had such a terrible experience; our parking lot is set up where you park right in front of your room, or if you... More

This is a nice family oriented motel. While the building is old, the rooms have been cleaned and updated. The service is excellent, they helped us with a sticky key and non-working fridge quickly and efficiently. Great place for the price.

Went on a quick weekend get away... Given the time of year most all other hotels were much more expensive - this place was not only reasonable on the price, but VERY clean and VERY nice!! VERY impressed by Jennifer (owner) and her staff - everyone was very friendly - We checked in very late on Friday night and even... More

We stayed 2 nights here. We stayed in a cute room with a small kitchen and a king sized bed. Everything was clean with cold a/c and a good sized refrigerator/freezer. There was a heated pool and free breakfast in the mornings. I only wish they would have had more breakfast choices like eggs or sausage. They did have a... More

If you are looking for place that is clean and has all the basics at a reasonable price this is it. The breakfast was better than most and the kids had a good time. The air conditioner was really loud but kept the place cool. In the bathroom the toilet paper roller and trash can were missing. The closet was... More
