“Great birthday weekend getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

My wife said she wanted to go to the coast for her birthday, so I got online and did my research. Between TripAdvisor and Yelp, one name kept appearing: 3rd Coast Inn. So I booked it. And I'm really glad I did. What a charming little place in a perfect location. There is literally nothing bad I can say about this experience. The room was cute, quirky and clean. The pool and hot tub area was immaculate. They even helped me surprise my wife with flowers in the room on our arrival.

This is a great example of a small family-owned business that is running laps around the big guys. Thanks for a wonderful time. This was the first of what I know will be many visits to the 3rd Coast Inn.

Wow...spent 4 winter months of heaven . From day 1 we felt welcomed. We hated to leave. Darcy
and Deanne took care of us like family. The rooms were cute and cozy and done in an island theme. Soft music playing by the pool and hot tub ,what else does anyone need . Do not miss this one. We are going back next year . So should you .

My husband and I have stayed here since it was the Blue Crab Inn. I have to say that we were just there last week, and our stay was very enjoyable and comfortable. It is much nicer now!! We stayed in #7 (for the 1st time) which is just a queen bed with bathroom, small fridge, microwave and coffee pot. I am very picky about my bed, and this bed was very comfortable. The units are older centerblock buildings. They have been renovated. We also traveled with a pet. Darcy is great and is more than accommodating for whatever you need. We will stay again and hopefully soon!!

We choose this place following reviews in Trip Advisor.
We don't regret it !
Staff was really friendly, room was nice and clean.
But the most interesting thing is that 3rd Coast Inn is really different !
Finding such a nice place just accross the street from a Best Western is just incredible.

Hands down, the best kept secret in Port A! I told Darcy when I left that I didn't want to tell anyone how amazing his place is (because I'm selfish and wanted to keep it all to myself), but I have to give credit where credit is due. He runs an amazing inn It's super small, only 7 units, but that's what makes it so special and unique. As soon as we pulled in, I knew that we were in for a treat. It's quirky, quaint, and perfect! From the start of our stay, to the end, Darcy and his mom were beyond friendly. They made us feel as if we were at a home away from home. There really is no better way to describe it. There's just a sense of ease when you stay here, and the calm energy that they give off is contaigous. I'll never stay anywhere else when I visit Port A. This is my new spot! Can't wait to go back next month, and the month after, and the month after that.....you get the picture!

Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and the pool nice and clean. This is a great place to stay for weekend or extended trips. We were down here on a fishing trip and the two room suites made it easier for us.

I first want to say thank you for the most amazing experience I have had in port aransas in 15 years. My most favorite thing were the bicycles. Me and my 5 year old son rode bikes all day for two days. They had bikes for all ages and we tried every single one to find our perfect one. The rooms were more than adequate, it was like having all the amenities of home. We cooked a wonderful breakfast and went out to the pool. We then cooked a wonderful burger and hot dog lunch for the kids on their BBQ pit by the pool. The kids swam all day day and the adults hung in the hot tub. The staff was amazing, so sweet and helpful. They had movies in the office for the kids and games for the adults. Just he most amazing trip ever. I would recommend it to anyone anytime We also met some dear friends that were our neighbors and I believe we will be friends for life ! Thanks again for our wonderful time I can't wait to come back!
