Nice rooms. Nice beds and good selection of TV channels. Large free breakfast in the morning. I believe it's the Best place to stay in Port Lavaca. The staff was accommodating and polite. The GM is very committed to hospitality. Laundry room is helpful. The view of the bay was beautiful at sunset.

The rooms were exceptionally clean and well decorated. The bed and pillows were so comfortable, I didn't want to get up in the morning. Housekeeping did a great job cleaning and freshening up the room. The breakfast set up was great - multiple selections from hearty to healthy. The pool and hot tub were clean and well kept.

Dear Peggy, Groovy!!!! We love hearing such wonderful praise and compliments. We are glad you were pleased with the value. All hotels offer a bed (although I believe ours are more comfy) and breakfast (although ours is top!), but not all hotels offer a genuine customer experience. We love being nice! You are welcome to stay with us whenever. Happy... More

Our room smelled wet and musty. Even with the air conditioning on it felt wet in the room. In the bottom floor elevator foyer it smelled strongly of mold. Breakfast biscuits were undercooked and still dough-like in the center, scrambled eggs were cold.

My daughter and I stayed here during an airport visit. It's a new facility, so everything is very clean. Our room on the 3rd floor did not face the bay, unfortunately, but that's not a huge loss as the bay isn't much to look at. The bed was comfortable and there was good water pressure in the shower.
