We were looking for a base for a week to try out the Texas coastline. We knew the place was dated from the reviews. When we arrived we found an old dilapidated place and the pool was locked and the office was closed. It looked nothing like the photos. We then decided to head to town to book a hotel.... More

My husband and I were in Las Vegas in November of 2013. While there like so many others we decided to do one of those TimeShare things to get tickets to shows and "Spending money for gambling".

Fort Brown is secluded and is within walking distance to a Border crossing and is a 20-30 minute drive to the Island and area beaches. The kitchen was well-stocked; the furniture is... More

We decided we wanted to get near Padre Island for a week to relax and enjoy our anniversary. We arrived at Fort Brown and it was a little difficult to find because it is hidden off a back street of some sort. Once we found it we made our way to the manager's office. There were 2 people working and... More
