Great location. Everything is close. Great friendly staff. Rooms were very clean . Breakfast was good. There are places to eat close by and the gifts shops close by. The beach is very close. We also visited Padre Island national seashore.

We booked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. Overall, our stay was a good one. The rooms were furnished with all the amenities you'd expect and more. The property is clean and generally well taken care of. The beds offer an excellent rest. The location is excellent. The staff is responsive, even going out of their way when they can.... More

We had a very good stay at this newly remodeled Best Western. My wife and I travel with our 2 grandchildren and I appreciated the fact that our rooms were connected. We were paid a visit by the manager of the property Ketan Bhakta. Over all it was a very good experience and the breakfast was great.

A large, clean room on the island for $85 a night. Pet fee of $20 a night. Great location (across from a neat gift shop with castle). Large outdoor pool and grilling area. Breakfast was included and there were hot and cold items however, no variety in the three days we stayed. A little bit hard keeping the room temperature... More

I am currently in this hotel as I type. The power has been out a couple hours and its unbearably hot. No sleep, no breakfast, and the staff has no empathy. I asked if any type of prorated refund would be issued and all I got was "it's not our fault."

Stayed for 3 days. Not bad at all. 2nd floor rooms have a high ceiling which make rooms seem more spacious. The room was clean, beds comfortable. AC worked great. Breakfast in Morning was good and had lots of choices. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice location right as you come onto the Island. Couple of drawbacks. Outside entries. This... More

The tile floors make sand stuck to your feet or sandals a non-issue (other than vacuuming it up). The room was clean; everything worked (we didn't use the wifi). We stayed on the first floor, which made vehicle access a snap. I discovered many working people stay here by the slamming of car and truck doors and engines starting up... More

I come down once a year to go to Big Shell and I always stay here with my husband and I have never had any problems. The room is always clean and staff is very nice. Wish I could bring my dogs but they do not let pets stay. That's the only down fall.

This is a lovely motel with very accommodating staff. We were well cared for and enjoyed our stay very much. It was perfectly situated for us (2 senior women and 2 children) to attend multiple destinations: Port Aransas, Padre Island, Mustang Island, St. Joseph Island, Horseback Riding on the Beach, and the Texas State Aquarium. Unfortunately, we disturbed our neighbors... More
