We read several of the reviews before staying here and were surprised at how accurate they were. When I checked in, the guy at the front desk was snobby as if he thought I didn't belong there (he was right);When we needed dry towels we had to exchange them at the front desk - we dropped them at the desk...

This place is just nasty. We stayed in a 2 bedroom "suite" (ehem) that was increadibly crowded. It claims that it's accomidations for 6 people. Maybe if you are only planning to sleep, but hope you don't all plan on sitting down to watch tv or eat while your there. We are a family of 6. Group included myself, husband,... More

There is a pile of junk in the lobby area. The front elevator is blocked with pressed wood, and the back elevator is scary to ride on. The halls STINK the rooms stink. There was a used bar of soap, dirty footprint and hair in the shower. Hair in the sink, nasty stuff on everything. They charge for everything including... More

From the moment we checked in the front desk was rude. Charged the wrong credit card for the room after I specifically asked for it to be changed. No hotel security, as she blurted out our room number in front of the entire lobby. You can't move in the elevators as they will lock up and bells will go off.... More

The hotel is an older hotel but is very clean and I am picky about the hotels I stay in. The service was good, the staff were nice and the price was excellent. We had a single room with 2 queen beds and our friends had a 2 bedroom suite. That's the only thing I will change next time is... More

Overall my stay went well. Pros: The location was nice (close to shopping, louie's backyard, and right no the beach). The room was clean and kitchen was old but had everything we needed to prepare our own food(minus a microwave). We asked for a top floor and got to stay on the highest which was nice. The front desk was... More

This hotel is a little old and run down, but all the basics are there. We had all of the kitchen facilities we needed and everything was clean. The rooms were large and the views from the balcony were great! The pool was nice but a little crowded. There is a short sandy path leading to the beach from the... More

The Padre South hotel is an older place and unfortunately it is showing it's age. It's a fine place for a room for the night but it really needs a serious facelift. Not to mention someone to just pick up the litter once in awhile. Every time my wife & I got in the elevator, there was garbage on the... More
