We spent 7nights here. It was awesome. Staying on the beach is the way to go. That way you just have to step outside and your at the beach. If you don't want to rent a car the bus stop is located right at the end of their driveway. It takes you right to the transit station to catch all... More

Very good experience! We had a group of 80. Good service and a very friendly staff. The hotel has clean rooms with a comfortable new bed. The breakfast food and staff was excellent. All the elevators were working! Parking was ok.

This was my first time staying at Emerald Beach and what an amazing place. Everyone was very friendly and accomodating and love the inside pool area. Even though the weather was such that we could not enjoy the beach....the employees made the experience and memorable one!! Lovely place with lovely people!!

If you are looking for a family friendly hotel then Emerald Beach Hotel is the place to stay. You may swim inside or outside and never leave the hotel area. Mos food places are in walking distance of the hotel. You may not want a room near the pool area because the kids start out at the pool very early.

My husband and I travel all over the country for his job. The company pays for our accommodations, so we didn't have a choice in staying here. We've been here for a week and a half so far. There are 2 elevators on each floor across from each other. One of them seems to be out of service every few... More

From our balcony watched pelicans fishing the bay and later, the lights from Padre Island. The staff were really helpful and though the room was old, it was clean and very comfortable. We'd definitely stay again, but we'll give the mediocre, over priced restaurant a pass.
