I stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to south padre. The staff was friendly and we got a nice room 327. Super cold air conditioning, coffee pot, safe deposit box, microwave, etc. Everything worked. The rooms are old and dated, but everything worked fine. There are couple of things management should tend to. First, the complementary breakfast is... More

I was very pleased with the staff and the deal we got with the Jacuzzi room. The room had everything we needed to make our stay memorable. The street next door had all the restraunts and outdoor bars we needed. Enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We stayed here for only one night. Just to get the little ones out to the island for a day. Pros: The price for this place was EXCELLENT! $69 for the middle of summer is great! Our room was HUGE! Great if you've got kids with you. Gives them room to spread out and run around. Our room had 2... More

We stayed over the weekend and I was really worried to bring my dog because she's never traveled that far before (it's an 8+ hour trip for us). I've also had trouble finding a hotel that is willing to take a "large" dog. However, we took her anyway and I was thrilled. At checkin, they gave us treats for her,... More

I was charged for an extra night. I canceled a night stay in a timely manner and I was told that i will not be charged. At the check out I noticed the extra charge and i waited for a while for them to fix the problem after they apologized for the mistake. No big deal, right? Well, actually I... More

This hotel has a great staff who greets you and make you feel nice. You can tell they are hard workers! The breakfast is awesome, much better than we expected. They have scrambled eggs, all types of bread and hot breakfast. Now the room is another story, it stinks, the carpets are super nasty and the lamps seems that they... More

We stayed here during Memorial day weekend. It just so happened to be bike week also!!! And to top it off a motorcycle group was staying at our hotel. Despite all of this the staff was EXCELLENT. Our room wasn't what we had reserved so they upgraded our room to a jacuzzi suite. The rooms were dated but the great... More

The rooms are great, they are large and roomy with kitchenette and a kitchen table in their own kitchen area. We love staying at this hotel. Regrets? Just that I don't get... More

It had been 3 years since I last did a review for this hotel. They have been very busy updating the rooms, bathrooms, facilities, etc-even adding a gift shop with foods, etc right next to the pools! The number of guests that come down to spend winter months there (Winter Texans) at THIS hotel is amazing. They are treated like... More
