I found this motel 4 years ago while looking for lodging that accepts pets. I was skeptical because of the low price but convinced after reading other reviews. Though this is not your Marriot, it is clean, comfortable, and less sterile than your typical hotel chains. We like that the parking is directly outside the back door and the pool... More

While not being the Marriott, we found the South Beach Inn to be a very enjoyable and accommodating (small) hotel. We booked two rooms for our family and really enjoyed the adjoining rooms. Front Desk was friendly and check in was a breeze. The pool, kids play area, and BBQ grills are easily accessible as they are right outside your... More

After getting assigned room number nine we drove completely around the building before finding our room door. It was on the side of the building. It was apparently part of the old manager apartment in back of the lobby that they decided to convert to a room. WEIRD. It look like they just opened an outdoor wall and added a... More

Thank you for your candid review. Unfortunately, room 9 is our least favorite room. We generally save it for someone who is just passing through for 1 or 2 nights. We apologize for your less than comfortable stay. I recommend calling the hotel directly to book, and requesting a standard double, rooms 11 - 20. You may also want to... More

My bf and I stayed here the week before Memorial Day and it was a great deal. We love that parking is right outside your door, the pool was clean, we used to bbq grills every night. The kitchenette is something I look for in a motel stay since we like to shop at the grocery and eat dinner and... More

I booked this hotel online, but luckily called to re-confirm, since my room had not been booked after all. The manager (owner?) offered me a large bottle of wine for the inconvenience and assured me he could get me a quiet king room, which was not very quiet, since it was below his family's living quarters and I could hear...

We spent three months there this past winter. Started our days in the kitchen in our bright little unit and took our coffee directly outside in front of our unit in full sunshine in very comfortable wicker chairs! How wonderful. When they advertise a half block to the beach, that is exactly correct, and a very short one at that!... More

Thank you for choosing South Beach Inn. And thank you for your sweet review. We are a favorite among Winter Texans with our kitchens and our South - facing patio that stays warm even when it's a little chilly in the winter. We definitely offer an economical winter home away from home for our retirees. Thanks again. More

Great little place near the beach - we enjoyed our girls trip staying there. We liked having the kitchen area, saved money not having to eat out for every meal! Friendly service and easy walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants.

Thank you for your kind review, and thanks for choosing South Beach Inn. We do offer an economical getaway, since our rooms have full kitchens, and it does allow you to eat in. It's also great for Vegans and those with special diets. South Padre Island is a wonderful vacation spot, but it can be difficult for those with special... More

We would stay again. Kitchenette, king sized bed, large shower. Close to beach & activities. Although they didn't clean room everyday, they changed towels & took out trash daily. We stayed 4 nights. They don't allow parties, so it was quiet.

Thank you for your wonderful review. The shoulder season (April - May, Sept - Nov) is a fabulous time to be here! It is quiet. The beach is wide open. And sometimes, when there are very few people here, we only offer service every other day. Most of our guests during this time are laid back couples, either windsurfing or... More

Thank you for the great review, especially for our new managers - John and Teresa. They took over in September and are doing a wonderful job.
