My husband and I enjoyed our quiet stay at South Beach Inn almost 2 yrs. ago, and can't wait to return there in a couple of weeks with our grandchildren! South Padre is so beautiful, and we love a historic feel (so reminds us of the old 1960's beach party movies!). The management is great, the pool is lovely and... More

Very nice quiet hotel close to the beach. We had the upstairs room with a veranda that was great to just relax and leave all our beach stuff. My husband and son enjoyed the pool and the beach access was a short walk. Would highly reccommend unless you really want an ocean view.

First off, as some of the previous reviews state - this is not a 4 or 5 star Hotel, so you need to know this going in. It's an older hotel and was quickly reminded of that when I booked my reservation with Stacie Sutter. The rooms are very clean and offer all the accomodations you would need. I likened... More

After searching on the internet for accommodations, I came across South Beach Inn. I personally like the vintage and character feeling of a place. This is why we selected to stay at South Beach Inn. My boyfriend and I arrived on Friday, June 20th and were greeted by the owner, Stacie. She was VERY friendly and made us feel welcome.... More

We stayed here for one week over the summer. It was me, my wife, my son, and our dog. We stayed in the efficiency room with the kitchenette. Our plan was to eat out once a day and then utlize the kitchenette features. This is not a 5 star hotel but it is a great way to stay a half... More

The South Beach Inn on South Padre Island is a dump. The furnishings are ancient (not antiques mind you, ancient), the appliances heavily rusted and filthy, and the smell of our room was awful. This was supposedly a non-smoking room. The bathrooms are disgusting, with urine, mold and ancient fixtures here as well. I phoned directly when reserving a room... More

Wow! What do we say about that?! There was only one guest who was unsatisfied & left shortly after arrival in July. We could tell at check in that this family was probably not going to be happy with our quaint little 2-star hotel. Two of the family members were busy selecting all of the spa & massage flyers on...

We enjoyed our stay at the South Beach Inn. We arrived late on Friday night due to a change in flights, but the owners happily met us to check us in. We stayed in a suite and the rooms were clean and well-kept. The property is in great condition and is walking distance to the beach, as well as places... More

Clean,affordable,close to the beach,and perfect for our family. Loved the full size fridge and stove and saved money not eating out. A/C was cold, shower was hot, and we walked to the beach in a couple of minutes. Pool and property always clean and the only traffic that went by were bicycles. We would ,without a doubt, stay here again.

As always I make lodging choices based upon Trip Advisor reviews and other factors. When I saw this property was ranked the highest and glanced at their website photos I felt I was getting one of the best places to stay in the area. Although my stay was pleasant I do not agree with most of the reviews posted. This... More

It is necessary to correct & clarify a few items stated here. First, we are a half block to the beach. Literally. Not 2 - 3 blocks. There is a photo on our website showing the beach access at the end of our street & our location in proximity to the beach. Next, it is true we have a park-like... More

If you are looking for a relaxing get away, this is the place for you. This was one of the best vacations we have been on. This inn takes you back in time to when things went a little slower.(Do not fear they do have WIFI) It was great to be able to fix your own dinner or snack after... More
