Also so customer service training for staff as a self employed business owner i only want people to work... More

We got there and then I was quoted a highter rate for additional day. We ended up leaving! Horrible experience ever. There were bugs in the rooms and even crawling in... More

Three days and no working TV. There was no evidence of a manager the whole time I was there, I asked each day. I don't know... More

Breakfast area is small, being that it was Labor Day weekend and lots of guests came downstairs... More

We went to South Padres in July of 2011 (sorry for the delayed review) and we stayed at the Blue Bay Inn. The hotel seemed pretty clean even though it looked old on the outside.
