I had a wonderful stay at the Inn February 21-23, 2014 as part of a group of 45 attending a conference. First of all, the Inn had plenty of friendly, competent staff at the front desk at all times to make check-in a breeze and to answer any questions that came up. Next, I was pleasantly surprised at the size... More

This review will address my 2nd most recent stay.This used to be a Howard Johnson but is now owned by a local real estate company. This is a lower average hotel. It is run down, but clean. The staff is... More

My wife and I spent two nights at South Padre recently during the Sand Castle sculpture competition. We normally visit SP during the week to avoid the weekend crowds, However this competition was scheduled for a Friday and Saturday so we chose a hotel on the bay or lagoon side of the island. The Inn at South Padre turned out... More

I wish I could report that this was a fine, if older, hotel. Sadly, I cannot. Within minutes of checking in the pungent aroma of mold hit me. I would have stayed but for what happened next. A roach came out and looked at us as if to say "who invited you?" We checked out. My daughter and son were... More

1st there is a weird smell in hotel as soon as you walk in. Smell is coming from carpet in hotel. It definitely needs to be replace. Rooms are okay nice and big but outdated. It good use some new furniture. Overall it's average.

We stopped in for the night and found it a great place to relax. This is a small hotel but I was impressed with the pool and the breakfast. They had free breakfast with waffles, eggs, sausage and other regular items. Upon check-in I asked for the best internet rate and got $40 off for each night. The only downside... More

The hotel room was not as it was described on the website. It did not have a sleeper sofa, the jacuzzi tub knobs were broken off and the room was filthy. On the plus side, the pool area was nice and the staff was super friendly. Still, it wasn't worth the price and I won't ever stay here again.

I sincerely appreciate the staff at this hotel, they were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and spacious and afforded my boyfriend and I, a restful night. Thanks to the Inn staff for recommending an "unchain" breakfast joint.

Inexpensive hotel at SPI.Awesome Hotel.Great breakfast, enough for everyone, even though there was a lot of people.Just make sure you get there early or on time to enjoy your breakfast and the staff was really friendly and wanting to go the extra mile toward your experience.
