The room was very comfortable and so spacious. It was great that it had a separate area for the sink than for the tub so someone could be getting ready while the other was in the shower. It has a small pool area but its on the ISLAND so we went to the beach anyway. We got to park right... More

Everything was average for the price needs a little up keep. Maybe a outside paint job, larger pool area if possible. Service was ok more motivation. I expected more shopping places nearby. Closed at night a tad inconvenient. But overall it was ok overall.

The very first day we stayed the room looked clean and a value for the price. Upon returning to the room, my daughter got in bed and realized the mattress and all the layers but the top were soaked in urine. After taking care of the issue at 11pm at night I asked the head mgr. to make sure all... More

I won't lie driving up being as critical as I am I had second thoughts---but when we went to check to see their rates and availability the lady behind the counter was very plesant... More

Hotel manager and clerks are extremely rude. Extremely noisy and smokey. Not worth the hassel to save a few bucks. Not that great of a hotel and certainly not worth confrontations with very poor, apparently unskilled and uneducated management. So many better, pleasant places to stay on a beautiful island. I Love S.P.I., not so much the Budget Horror!

I showed them my confirmation number and the rude receptionist gave me a card and told me to call the manager. I told her you call her. you work here. basically... More

Our son had his wedding planned for August 4, 2007. We all went to South Padre Island in person in January of 2007 to look at hotels and book several rooms for family and friends who were coming to the wedding. Everything was set.
