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

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. Located at the head of Padre Island and just after the causeway/bridge, it was convenient to Corpus Christi, Mustang Island and the national seashore park. Our room (handicapped) was well appointed and well kept by a most helpful housekeeping staff. We would definitely stay at the Best Western on the Island when... More

This is a difficult review for me b/c this hotel is nothing to rave about, yet there are few things I can criticize. The rooms are large with high ceilings (2nd floor that is), but the AC is not adequate for the size. We had a ceiling fan, not typical of hotel rooms, but even that combined w/ the lowest... More

Had we been smarter we would have extended our stay when we booked. We were so sad that we had to check out but we will be back as we were treated as family members and we loved it. We had a great time on the island..

We left the hotel on Monday morning at 5:30 am and returned at 5:30 pm and our room as well as other rooms in our group had not been touched by the cleaning staff. We were told that they chose to clean the rooms of the folks who checked out (for more business) vs. those who were staying at the... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment about our hotel. I am genuinely sorry for the inconveniences you encountered during your stay with us. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the delay in room service, our hotel has been running at full capacity daily and the housekeeping staff are working very hard to ensure that all rooms...

The hotel is a great location for fisherman. Close by the boat ramps and restaurants. The hotel is kept up very well and is close to everything on the island. Because of the location, the prices are high especially on the weekends.

My daughter and I were moving her to a new job in Corpus Christi and had never been in the area. She needed to check out apartments, etc. We also required a pet friendly stay. The employees (especially Billy) were most helpful in suggesting apartments, retaurants, etc. The hotel is located close to a sealife rescue facility which was a... More

This Best Western is very nice, although a bit pricey for what you get. We had a second floor room that had vaulted ceilings and a ceiling fan. The rooms all face the pool and a nice sunset. It's not on the water, and there's really nothing near by, but it is centrally located if you plan on visiting Padre... More
