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.

After all the excellent reviews I saw on this site, I thought “this place MUST be great.” Now I wonder how many of their “reviews” were bought and paid for. It may just be we had a very rare bad experience, but from the attitude of the management, it seems like this might be the norm. Below, I’ve got our... 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.

I come to South Padre every year to get my windsurfing fix in. I stay for at least two weeks and get a good deal in a quaint, quiet, perfect little family run hotel SOUTH BEACH INN!

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. South Beach Inn is a great deal in the off season and very very close to the beach - it's just a half-block away! And we love our return guests! Thanks to all of... More

Everything was as we expected. There is a little motel tucked into a side street. Nothing special about it except that it is quaint, clean, and close to the beach. We really enjoyed a very quiet and relaxing stay. I would stay here again for sure! Not a complaint but a note: the beds were full size, kinda small. And... More

Thank you for your great review. We appreciate your feedback. We generally buy new pillows every spring when we replace our linens, but nothing luxurious. We are well hidden, and very quiet in the off season. Early April and September, October, are wonderful times to be on the island enjoying the beach and pool without a crowd. Thanks again. We...

So we stayed here for 4 days and it was totally better than I imagine would be, when we checked in the lady at the office gave us a magazine of the Island, that helped a lot to see what was around, she was nice and her cat was too :) The room was clean, and it was nice that... More

At first glance, walking into the beach house it does seem to be clean. The décor is very simple however dated. If you are looking for 5 stars, all inclusive luxury, look some other place. The Kitchen has lots of room, and is equipped with stove and microwave; fridge is full size. Dining room table is old as well as... More

We just got back to San Antonio on Saturday 6/22/13. We have been staying there for the past 5 years and make it an annual deal. We used to stay across the bridge in Port Isabel but when we found how affordable this place really was we switched over and have been going there since. For the money you cannot... More

Thanks so much for the great review! Thank you for being our regular guests! We love you! That's what Bill says too, "It's the best bang for the buck." Too funny. But true. We are so close to the beach, and offer kitchens and BBQs. We have a great pool, a great yard, Cable TV, and Free WIFI. Thanks so... More

I expected a low budget motel, and there were no surprises there. It was old and funky although pretty clean. BUT...I didn't expect to be in a room that didn't resemble the other units shown on the site. It was almost as if they'd stuck us in a big closet! It's called Unit 10. It's very small and there were... More

Thank you for your candid response. And we apologize again that we were unable to move you, as we had no other available room. We save Unit #10 for whomever reserves last. When we speak to the guest directly during the reservation process, we explain the room, and ask if they'd like to proceed or not. We have 2 rooms... More

I have stayed at this motor inn, I call it, for four years counting now. My stays average three nights but this year I am staying 7. This is a cost consious place to stay, it is not luxury. What you get is a large clean room, kitchenette (bring your own dishes, pans, utensils), a private stay with no hassles,... More

Thank you for the great review! We love our return guests! We have installed blackout curtains and pillow-top mattress pads to make you more comfortable this year. Our upstairs suites are gone, but we have our four-plex on Oleander for larger family groups. We hope you will visit us again soon! More
