“Very Nice Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

We have stayed here on two separate occasions, the first time prompting a return visit. The room we had was huge, and the kitchenette was a nice amenity. The complimentary breakfast was good as well. We were also impressed with the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is pet-friendly, which is a plus.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

Stayed here with the kids & doggy. The staff were friendly. We stayed in a room with two queen beds, and it was clean & adequate. Beds were a little firm. There seemed to be lots of guests at the hotel but it was not noisy. Kids enjoyed the pool. There's a big grassy area to walk your dog, and bags to clean up after them. If you want to bring your dog with you to Port Aransas, this hotel is one of your best options.

I stayed here with two teens and a big dog. The staff was very friendly over the phone and when checking in. This hotel accepts pets for a fee, that was the main draw for me. It is very pet friendly.

The room was nothing special, but it was average size and clean, a little musty smelling which is typical for coastal rooms. I appreciated that the floor was tiled so we had no worries with the dog.

There are a lot of amenities, volleyball, horseshoe pits, BBQ's and picnic areas, a gazebo. There is a nice pool along with a hot tub. They had a nice selection for breakfast.

The location to the beach could have been better. The beach isn't far, but the access to it is. We had to walk quite a ways to get to a beach access. It wasn't a bad walk, nor a very long one, but it wasn't just a short jaunt.

I base my ratings on the star level of the hotel. Of course a 5 star is going to be nicer than a 2 star and it's not fair to compare them in my overall rating.

We booked our room a week in advance and paid for it. Our room was not clean yet and then they gave it someone else and offered me another which was not ready and did not have the same accomodations we paid for. Their sofa beds have old thin mattress and stained. The pictures on their wedsite is not what you get. We skipped their free breakfast because it was a mess. No one there to clean. Staff was not very helpful and inconsiderate. I recommend staying at the Holiday Inn. Rooms are clean and friendly staff.

Another wonderful trip to Port A, and another WONDERFUL stay at Plantation Suites. We were greeted like family, and just had to wait just a few minutes for a room as they had a large group leaving. The staff could not of been nicer. Our room was nice, clean and spacious. A welcome, that's for sure. We have never had any noise problems here, and we have always felt secure and safe. A big bonus in my book. The breakfasts are always great, and LOVE the waffles....Beach access in either direction leaving the hotel is just a couple of minutes away. So easily located. We cannot wait to come back.....Thanks again you guys for yet another incredible memory!

Room Tip: Book in advance....

The room was clean and had plenty of space. The office staff was friendly. Their breakfast was good with waffles and all the other continental findings. There were a lot of kids enjoying the pool and a lot of people outside hanging out after dark. This place is not fancy and is a bit dated, but I have no complaints. It felt safe.

The rooms were not clean. The pool was dirty and the walls are paper thin! Don't be fooled by the 4-5 ratings. It's noisy at night and you can hear the guest all around you. Needless to say we'll never go back!

Room Tip: Ask to see your room before you check- in
