Seaside is great if you want a motel on the beach that has a 2 room condo with full kitchen for the price of 1 single room at a chain hotel You can walk bare foot from your room to the water Not a fancy place but the people are great . The floors where just re-tiled

This is where we stay when we come down here from now on. It's close to the beach it's affordable. I love the fact that I can walk down to the beach with my family or by myself. It's also pet friendly. Has a pool bbq pits. If you stay at the condo up stairs you do get a view... More

I have stayed at this motel/condo several times. All rooms are now non-smoking as of September 1, 2014. They are pet friendly. The motel rooms are a good size. They have a microwave and a mini frig in the room and the beds are comfortable. I wish they would add a coffee pot. You can get coffee in the office,... More

We stayed here just after Labor day. Rooms were very clean for a beach side motel and beds were comfortable. Staff was super friendly and very nice. Coffee provided in lobby. Loved the closeness to beach area. we were able to walk there as we wanted.

We've been staying at the seaside motel for years now. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Location and price typically have a direct influence on each other but this is opposite and ideal. Right on the beach without the pesky boardwalk. We had problems with the condo we stayed in. Smelly and downright dirty. The downstairs rooms in the... More

Good things about the Seaside Motel and condominiums. They allowed pets, and was located just yards away from beach, and water. I must note the employees were exceptionally friendly. The bad things were too numerous to note. The overall price was exceptionally high for a bed, and not much else to offer other than a toilet, close beach access, allowing... More

As I said in the title, your stay here depends on what your priorities are when looking for lodging. The pros: LOCATION! This place is less than a minute walk from the beach. This was really convenient for those with small children and/or pets. PRICE! Considering the beach proximity, the price is fair. The room also featured a mini fridge... More

I have been visiting Port Aransas since 1987. About 15 years ago I discovered Seaside Motel and Condominiums. I fell in love with this little place immediately and this is the only place I ever stay in Port Aransas now. Was just there again the 2nd week in June 2014 - last month. They have all new pillow top mattresses... More

This is not a fancy condominium and it really only has the basic accommodations. Our room had a little microwave, small fridge and a TV. No Iron or hair dryer (which was not a problem just asked our neighbor for theirs to use). The towels had a funny odor to them, so I think I will just take mine on... More
