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

We made a reservation for a room with 2 double beds a month prior to our visit. Upon check-in, we were given a room with 1 bed and a futon couch. When I asked the clerk about the mix-up, she replied "Most people don't b**ch about an upgrade. (What upgrade??) They called this unit a condo, but if was missing... More

This hotel is not a 5 star hotel in the way that you'd expect. It is however, a 5 star hotel because of its proximity to the beach, within walking distance, and because of the service you'll receive. The staff is friendly and it has everything you expect from a hotel that you're only staying in to have a good... More

Love this hotel and port Aransas. This is a no frills place so if you want fancy this isn't it. If you want a friendly reasonably priced clean room that couldn't be any closer to the beach this is it. This is the third summer that weve stayed here. I've already got a room reserved for next summer. I recommend... More
