It's been about 5 years since we've had a family vacation and I thought it would be great to visit Port Aransas for Spring Break 2013. We planned on getting some sun, shopping, and having fun. Of all my experiences in hotels, none have ever been worthy of a review, but this time around, I can honestly say that it was worth it and our stay was amazely AWESOME!! Our room had a microwave, mini-fridge, flat screen TV, table with two chairs, and the two queen size beds were very comfortable. The restroom was very nice, almost elegant if you ask me; just the setup itself was nicer from other hotels I've stayed at over the years. The A/C never gave us a problem and housekeeping was available when needed. Even when the dryer didn't dry our clothes after running it through two dryer cycles, the front desk offered to dry our clothes for us at no charge. There were no crying babies next door, no slamming doors at 2am, no kids running up and down the hallway, the hotel had building security that would escort non-guests off the premises (bracelets were given at check-in to identify guests, due to it being Spring Break), hotel had a great selection on their complimentary breakfast, and for the first time in years we were all able to have an enjoyable vacation. The hotel was about two and a half blocks from the beach (just a hop, skip, and jump if you ask me), there were shops/restaurants within walking distanace too, and we were still close enough to drive to Padre Island if we wanted. Port Aransas has changed so much and all for the better, we plan on doing this again!!
