This place gets lots of great reviews, but we didn't see the appeal of it. For two possible reasons, the camaraderie remarked upon among guests just didn't exist - 1)red tide kept people inside & 2)construction going on at the motel was troublesome. Kitchen kit ($10 extra) looked like stuff from Goodwill, and included no glasses. There was a coffeepot... More

southbeachtexas, Owner at South Beach Inn, responded to this review

We did have a miserable red tide during the time of this guest's stay. We had also just begun our off-season construction. The two upstairs suites were completely removed, and manager's quarters replaced them. Fortunately, as promised, the construction was finished before Spring Break in March. Unfortunately we have no control over the red tide. We understand that it is... More

I really liked this place. It's a shorter walk to the beach than most of the others in it's price range ( I have stayed at quite a few hotels on SPI ). Most of the other hotels in this price range are on the Bay side. The hotel is small with something like 12 rooms, It is one of... More

this past May was our 12th visit to the island. Stayed at the same place every year. Bill and Stacie have been the owners since '04. They are great hosts. The place is clean, quiet (this is not a party hotel) and the price is right. Two minute walk to the beach (if you walk slowly). Best value for our... More

We appreciated this small inn and the work done by the husband and wife team that owns the establishment and worked to ensure our visit was perfect. We look forward to visiting again soon!

We have been staying at Southbeach for years and consider this our home away from home. The rooms are clean and it's less than a block from the beach. Bill & Stacie are like family to us and we wouldn't stay anywhere else on the Island.

My husband and I (we're in our 50's and 60's) try to go to South Beach Inn every April, since discovering it 5 years ago. South Padre is the place to be in April for kite boarders and wind surfers, because of the coastal breezes during that time of the year. People come from around the nation and the world... More

What a deal! We live in Crested Butte CO and were recomended this place by a fellow windsurfer in my home town. Two Queen beds, a full kitchen, internet, cute pool, less than a block from the beach, all for a great price. There is only a few rooms so this place was never noise and it was off the... More

Our stay here in March 2011 was our third . The location is great, the rooms are modest , but clean & neat. Bill & Stacey are great hosts. We scheduled our stays just after the winter Texans leave, and just before the Spring Breakers arrive, so it is normally a very quiet time. We definitely plan to go again... More

A great place to stay, very clean, nice pool walk to the beach (1 block) . They do allow pets which is great. The young people that own and operate the motel are not like some of the other people that operate the motels, this is thier place of business and the upkeep and grounds show it. Just waiting my...

we've been going to the south beach inn for over 12 years years now. It is not for people who want or need luxury, its for people who are casual, who prefer home cooking to eating out, people who are friendly, easy going, like pets, charcoaling, short walks to the beach, and very nice owners. It's a great place to... More
