“A nice, clean place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2005

I am very particular about the hotels that I stay in and have no complaints about Beachgate. It isn't anything fancy and there are few ammenities other then the pool/hot tub area (which is small, can't swim laps but it's fine for kids, getting cooled off, laying out). We stayed in the motel unit and it was large enough for 2 adults and a child, it even had a kitchenette which was great and proved very handy, and the bed was reasonably comfortable. Even though we didn't have a view of the ocean, we were on the backside of the building, we could walk to either end of the deck/porch in front of our room, sit in the chairs provided and enjoy the view. The very short walk to the beach was the best part, especially for our early morning and late evening strolls along the shoreline. The staff was very friendly too. I do wonder if anyone knows when is the best time to go the coast, when the seaweed isn't so bad, it was awful when we were there. I've heard it clears up by June but we were there the 6th - 9th and it was worse each day. We didn't let it put a damper on our trip though, Port Aransas is a great getaway destination, and the Beachgate is a nice, stress free place to stay.

Not so fancy, but not so stingy square footage-wise. Near the beach and has more amenities than most pricey hotels. Well worth it! Keep up the good job!

This was a wonderful place to stay at! It is literally within seconds of the beach! The view is exquisite and the room has everything you could possibly need. It is VERY clean and well kept and includes lots of basics, such as cups, bowls, utensils, towels, etc. It is comfortable and roomy and the staff is incredibly friendly. The location is unbeatable. I really enjoyed my weekend in Port A, thanks to Beachgate!

We travel to Port Aransas every November and for the past 2 years we have stayed at Beachgate Condos. It is a terrifice place to stay. The owners and workers are such wonderful people and are so accommadating. The condo is right on the beach and such a peaceful place to be. We are looking forward for our visit in November 2005.

If you really love the Texas coast, Beachgate is a perfect place to stay. It's not fancy but it is clean, close to restaurants and shops, and very close to the water. Try the open air restaurant next door for the best full breakfast on the island. My family has been staying at Beachgate for years and we look forward to returning each time. It should simply and adequately meet your needs.

I went to the Beachgate for a week to bring in the New Year.
My sister came with me and we had the best time.
I have stayed in Port Aransas several times in other places and these rooms at the Beachgate are clean, clean, clean .
We also did visit several other motels, condos, and suites for the next time we come and although some of them offered a HEATED pool they were stone cold and you had to walk down long beach trails to get to the beach.
The Beachgate is RIGHT ON THE BEACH.
The pool IS heated to a beautiful temperature.
And the staff was super friendly.
You need not look further and we sure won't when we come back in the fall.
