Another wonderful experience. The staff here are just great. Where else can you stay on the beach for eighty bucks a night with a full kitchen ocean front view clean room and great beaches where you can drive on the beach.

We stayed here 3 nights. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Two bedroom two bath kitchen. Ocean front, great view. We are going back for a five night stay in Feb. Hotel is right on the beach and just a few miles up the road is a public beach access where you can drive right on the beach.

Padre South is a great place to stay at during Spring Break. It has it's own private beach access too. The only issue is the extremely strict rules. They make you wear wrist bands during your entire stay to indicate that you're a guest at the hotel. Getting guests to come over is a ginormous hassle. But in all, it's... More

This hotel got a amazing view of the beach from any room in the hotel. I've love staying here and I enjoy the friendly staff and amazing sunrise from my room. It has a wonderful pool and private access to the beach.

My wife and I had a good 2 night stay here. Third floor, kitchenette, queen bed, sofa sleeper. The hotel is old. Some would call it a classic. I do like the 1950 and 1960 styling of this place. Everything was functional. Everything was clean. Did not use the pool or hot tub. But they we in use frequently while... More

Awful, terrible and disgusting is all I have to say about this hotel. Do you really want to visit mexico without going to mexico. Do you like out of date rooms, overcharged, tacky, motel 6 type rooms! Well Padre South is your kind of hotel! This was the worst experience I have had staying at hotels in the last 6... More

Booked one queen bed, got two fulls instead due to their mistake...mgmt. offered no remedy or discount. The room and hotel for that matter smelled of mold. Pool was filthy and parking was a pain. The customer service personnel were inept and not helpful. Not worth the $$$- book elsewhere

I arrived with 3 bathing suits. On the first morning I couldn't decide whether to wear my red or blue one. I wore my red one and left my blue, and black one in the room. When we returned at night I was planning for the next day and thought I'd gone crazy because I couldn't find my blue swimsuit...I... More

Padre South Hotel had exactly what I needed for my trip. My mother likes to smoke and she wanted a hotel on the beach. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Despite the fact that they didn't offer a breakfast bar or room service, the kitchenette made up for it. All the appliances worked, and they... More
