My biggest complaint was that the shower head was too low for a regular sized person (6 feet), but what do you expect from a... More

The pics on the website are a gross misrepresentation of this property. The entire property looks run down, not well maintained like the pics, pool & hot tub were dirty. The double room we were in smelled musty & reeked of old cigarette smoke, bathroom fixtures were stained & hardware in both sink & tub were loose & almost falling... More

Nice property. Great customer service, rooms are updated, plasma tv's and great parking. I highly recommend this place for anyone look for an inexpensive place to stay on the bay on South Padre. Easy access and close to all clubs and bars on the island.
