Location is awesome, walking to and from the beach.. Price is great. Friendly staff. Clean room. Awesome decks to hang out on. Relaxing. Not so great: towels and driveway need major help. Bring your own towels, unless you are okay drying off with thin, small rag like towels. Be cool with smoking because the bar/restaurant and staff smoke. Drive slowly... More

Not like, a block away, or convenient stroll around the corner, you step out of your room, go down the steps, and your in the sand. Found this place by mistake on previous trip, so we took notes on name and number for planning, and we've stayed here every time since. Now... if your used to Ritz Carlton treatment and... More

Being right on the beach was important to us, so we chose The Beach Lodge. We were there in the off season, so we stayed in a double room upstairs. We were next to a fantastic balcony which afforded a spectacular view of the beach. There was a microwave and refrigerator(but no sink) in one of the rooms. The floors... More

We selected this lodge after reading TripAdvisor reviews that the Beach Lodge was small and minimal, but a good price for being clean and on the beach. After staying there, and I can confirm that our Beach Lodge room was uncomfortably tiny for 4 people; wonderfully clean (almost sterile feeling - the shower curtain seemed brand new and the floors...

If your looking for the Ritz, then move on, but if your looking for a reasonable weekend getaway that is clean, has comfortable beds and just steps to the beach, then this is the place. Perfect for our family, because we spend the majority of our time on the sand, not in the room. We have stayed here multiple times,... More

First time to stay at the Beach Lodge in Port A. Everything about the place is perfect. The rooms are very clean and the beds are so comfortable. I stayed there for 3 days and ate at the restaurant all the time. You have to get the shrimp cocktail. Best I have ever had. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner... More

I had a hard time deciding where to stay in the Port Aransas area. I knew I did not want a chain hotel, our 2 night stay was not going to work for most condo rentals and I wanted to be on the beach; after all that is why we were there. I saw the reviews for The Beach Lodge... More

We had an extremely small room and tiny bathroom, and it was ok for a one night stay. There are no furnitures, no nightstands or dresser. Just a mattress on a tiled platform. But it was clean. This is a place where you can just sleep and then be out all day to the beach or fishing. The beach is... More

This was our 3rd time to stay here and we will stay again. As others have stated, its definitely not fancy, but clean, reasonable and right on the beach. The restaurant is one of the best values in Port A. Food is good and prices are a little cheaper than in town.
