Very displeased with my stay. My family came down and we reserved this place. The rooms were in poor condition, not a place I want to relax. Felt icky and dirty as if roaches hid in corners. Only good thing, was the beach was close by and the bar was close by. And although you could bbq outside on the... More

Dirty sweaty sheets. We had to go buy sheets at the local store because the bed sheets reeked of sweat!!! The room was dirty, bed super unconfortable. It was a last min booking for the 4th of July 2014. Never again!!! If we can't get a decent room we just won't go.

First of all we were not planning on staying overnight at South Padre Island but as it turned out we decided too and it was kind of late in the evening. After searching for a Motel/Hotel for an hour we came upon The South Padre Motel. The room was small and the tv was old and a 12in. There was... More

We just returned from a 4 night stay over the 4th weekend and could not have been more upset over this hotel. Our original hotel accidentally overbooked and we were forced to stay here for 2 nights. Cons: Fridge is moldy (they unplug it when previous guests leave) Kitchen is unusable (rusty and cabinets don't close) AC cools 1/2 the... More

This unique motel is a paradise in itself. The atmosphere is true Tex-Mex. Southern Texas hospitality at it's best. The staff was wonderful and made us feel comfortable and welcomed. The other guests were from a range of cultures and also seemed to be relaxed and enjoying themselves. It was contageous. Our room had a microwave and more important, a... More
