I visit Port Aransas often, and have stayed at the Captain's Quarters a few times because its pretty convenient if you want to go fishing at the docks across the street. Also heard about it from a colleague who seems to stay here. The hotel must be under new management, because I didn't recognize the GM from my last visit (and because he told me so). I noticed they've been slowly upgrading the hotel, and some of the new rooms are now quite nice - I got upgraded to a Captains Preferred room, which I liked.
The hotel had complimentary water bottles in the rooms - haven't seen that before? I hate how you usually have to pay five bucks for those.
They also had a pretty neat movie night at the pool, with a projector - they played Hunger Games the day the DVD came out, that was really fun. Andy, the GM, even let us borrow a hookah? which I have never used before, but it was an awesome experience.
The room I stayed in was comfortable, clean and updated, but the phone didn't work, which was annoying. I liked that they had fresh coffee served in the breakfast room before 6 am, when we set out on the boat.
They have some ways to go in updating the hotel, but I like where its headed, and will visit again in early October, hopefully the improvements continue.
