Our room was clean and tidy ,staff was smiling and helpful. Parking lot is small but still good. Quite literally a great time .For the price you pay your money is well spent. Continental breakfast is small , but the normal.

Wanted an economical place to hang out for a few days. Found Windwater at a decent price. Definitely a B rated place, but friendly staff. Rooms were fairly clean, but need work. Very nice view from the back patio of the suite I rented a Bay Side water inlet. There are outdoor grills to use which I saw several guests... More

this is an old motel and if u couldn't handle the feel of a 60's bungalow u prob wont like it. However once u get comfortable there u don't notice it so much. The view on the bay side is the inlet on the bay and your view is water and the backs of others beach homes. If u want... More

I stayed at the WindWater during April 2014 for about a week. The place was fine overall. As a solo traveller I wasn't looking for any frills...Everything was fairly clean and the wifi worked well. 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

Pros: Clean, spacious room, friendly staff Cons: Small parking lot, not much of a view, small pool           Room: king suite, sofa bed, balcony, & bay view   We were pleasantly surprised by our room. I chose this hotel even after reading bad reviews, since I was hoping the view from the balcony would make up for anything.... 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.

Me and my friends came to padre for spring break. Being a couple of spring break kids our expectations for a hotel weren't very high. But I have stayed in a lot of hotels and this is by far the worst. Worst accommodations I've Ever experienced, worst costomers service, the maids don't clean the rooms, when we checked in they...
