The room was very clean. Breakfast was the choice of two cereals or toast but was ok for food in the am. The internet was weak and worked off and on. Over all for the price and location a good deal. dog friendly which was a plus.

The room was so clean, and the employees were so helpful. I heard there was new management, well good for them because the manager turned that place around. They offer continental breakfast and the rooms have their own fridge and microwave. It is located in the area of south padre island which is near everything.

First I'd like to say the manager is really trying with this newly aquired property. However, no amount of apologies will make this stay acceptable. The room was overall clean, and when requested maid service was good. But I feel we shold not need to leave our room four times in one day and wait for it to be serviced!!... More

Staff was very nice and helpful. Rooms are clean and hotel not too far from beach access. I was told there is new management and employees and they are making great improvements. We will be coming back!!!!!

Got there in the evening was going to get a 2nd floor room asked for a 1st floor and they were very accommodating and gave me one. The girl at the front desk was pleasant and made sure myself and my wife were taken care of. The room needed some remodeling as it looked and smelled old, they definitely need... More

just as you are reading, there was no general lights at the room, only 2 lamps... the blonde girl at the lobby had an attitude, as soon as i got there she made that moment awkward, very very bad service... the indina guy was very courteous

When we arrived I told the counter clerk that I would pay cash at checkout time and not to charge my credit card. She said that was no problem. Our room was fair but the shower had a very slow drain so water would accumulate at your feet as you showered. After the first night, housekeeping only left two towels... More

Dozens of roaches when entered room. Room was filthy. Clerk rude when told. Height of summer season, room was $289 per night. Asked for refund. NON REFUNDABLE, even though I had paid less than 10 minutes earlier (will dispute with charge card). "Breakfast" is in lobby, only six chairs. Parking lot small and crowded. Pool is minuscule. People partying in... More

If you book here, don't be surprised if it is overcrowded and the small pool is filled with kids. The "breakfast" is obviously an add-on with three tables and six chairs in the hotel office. Parking was tight and we chose the best option which included the street one night. WIFI, forget it if you are past the first 10... More
