My friend and I stayed here over the weekend and for the price I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The hotel is literally steps from the water and a 15 min bike ride from everything else. The staff was really nice (excluding the person who answered the phone and took our reservation, she was a bit short with... More

We went here for our honeymoon 10/12/12 and stayed till 10/16/12. We got the one bedroom condo and still paid half of what everyone else was charging for a regular room. There was a flat screen Tv, the kitchen was stocked with what we needed, everything was clean, we only had one issue. There was a lot of construction going... More

We can see why people rate this motel as terrible. They are the same people who think the Sandcastle is the greatest place on the beach. There are Sandcastle people and there are Seaside people. Just like some wouldn't live on the south side of San Antonio and some wouldn't live on the north side. We love Seaside for what... More

My friend and I were looking for a place on the beach that allowed us to bring our dogs. This place was it! We got a 1 bedroom condo which had a king bed in the room and a futon in the living room. Fully stocked kitchen and was clean. We had a great time walking to dogs on the... More

This was my first time going to the ocean for an extended period of time. The Seaside Motel is AWESOME for the price and the location. It takes all of 2 minutes to walk from your room to the beach! We stayed in the 1 bedroom condo, it had everything we needed. Full size fridge, oven/stove, coffee pot, sink... everything... More

I will not be returning to Seaside next year. I have been going to Port A every summer with my family and friends for 35 years now and I have stayed in a lot of different places, this was the worst ever. The rooms were dirty, floors were not vaccumed very well and we even had sunflower seeds in the... More

Even gave my young children a beach ball. Not glamorous, but had comfortable beds and reasonable compared to other places. My friends has been here with her family several times. Pleasant salt of the earth place and staff. Had a problem with toilet, but they sent someone over right away. Looking forward to returning in the future.

I just spent 5 days at Seaside motel/condos in Port Aransas. I looked online for places to stay for a week before I left, still couldn't decide where to stay, some just looked scary (none really were once I got there). Got to port aransas Sunday and looked around at the motels, decided on Seaside, so close to the ocean,... More

Though we do not usually go in summer or holidays, we did go on June 12,2012 and stayed overnight, we got a non smoking room for our kids, and a smoking room for our dogs, our stay here has always been just that, a stay, a place to rest up a little after a day of beaching and shopping, the...
