We decided on Monday to leave on Friday to go to padre. This hotel was the cheapest available. For the price it is a good hotel. the customer service is good and the pool and beach were an easy walk. The room is really outdated and the furniture is probably about 30 years old. But it is clean and affordable.... More

Rooms have small kitchens stocked with basic equipment, rooms overlook the Gulf. Ask for a room on the north side of the building you will be able to see fireworks from Louie's on Thursday and Friday nights. Needed a little TLC on maintenance but nothing that distracted from our enjoyment.

These rooms were dated & worn, but clean. The bathroom sink & counter seemed like they were part of the kitchenette. The inside of the small dishwasher was very rusty. Only 1 shampoo packet for 2 people. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. It might have been better for an extended stay, at least you would know to bring your... More

Let me start by telling you of the excellent service that was afforded at this hotel. It has a great restaurant and Sports Bar, as as a great swimming pool and hot tub. Also, a unique set of rooms come with two complete bedrooms and their bathrooms, with a kitchenette and lovely den/living room, all as one hotel room. Great!!!!!... More

for a bit over $50 a night (off season rates), we got a room on the 7th floor, with a wonderful view of the beach from the balcony or from inside through the wall of windows facing the north. Refrigerator, stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffeepot all provided, as well as dishes and utensils! queen size bed plus a small table... More

The worst I can say is the wifi was spotty, an annoying blot on an otherwise fine experience for a guy who has to work while on holiday. The staff was nice, the rates were good and the room was clean. I'd do it again. Two side notes: if you're thinking about visiting Mexico via Matamoros, don't. Or at least... More

I was very happy with my room. I was on the 7th floor and could see the beach and lights of the city at night. It's not real fancy but what do you expect for the price. It's the best price of any rooms on the island. I've read older review and didn't find it smelling of mold or mildew.... More

Reserved two nights through the hotel for the beach bum special. Great rate might I add. Arrived early to check in and we were allowed 2 hours earlier! Hotel inside is dated, but clean. Staff was superb that we dealt with. Lobby is huge with large screen TV and pool table with a great view of the ocean. Elevators worked... More

This hotel is one of the best values on the island. The rates are tied to the season and off season rates can not be beat. It is very clean, comfortable, well set up with full kitchens in many of the rooms. Yes, it is an older hotel but has been updated and well taken care of. The staff was... More
