4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Six of us just returned home from a stay at the Beach Lodge with grins on our faces and stories to share. Awesome fun, fun, fun ! It had everything available just steps away...really a cool setting right on the beach with a bar/restaurant that looks through the dunes to the water. A super cool, open rooftop patio which was breathtaking for "Super Moon" experience. For me, the absolute friendly, accomodating, laid back staff was the best. Every single person was interactive, fun, and full of life. Maybe Hemmingway & Buffet had checked out before we arrived, but trust me, there were enough characters staying there to write a book about. One suggestion..the lodge should have a sign that says "Leave your worries behind. Only fun loving people wanted here!" Would I go back?...as soon as I can!!! Thanks everyone for a wonderful time.

Room Tip: with 6 people, we had an upstairs suite which was super fine and included a full size frig and a bal...

After moving to San Antonio from San Diego, missing the coastal living and trying out just about every other beach hotel in Port A we stumbled upon the Beach Lodge and WOW! This is definently a place that is perfect for couples and families alike. Location is unbelievable, rates are spot on and the staff is AMAZING! It's a little coastal all inclusive waiting for Kenny Chesney to walk in the door type of place. And the oysters... best I've ever had! The rooms are clean, food is delicious and beer is cold. Oh yeah and don't forget you can rent the whole place out for weddings, reunions, celebrations, whatever it may be, they will take great care of you at Beach Lodge. My daughters wear their tshirts proudly here in SA and its always neat to have someone come up and say, "Hey I love that place! We stay there too!" Thanks to all at the Beach Lodge and we will see you soon!

I gave all 5's not because this place is like the Hilton or anything like that but because it's exactly what I was looking for and expected, based off of their website and what I read about the place. I came and stayed here with a friend for the Texas Challenge for geocaching and we even had another friend come meet us out there at the bar one night too. If you want fancy go somewhere else and if you want super cheap then go somewhere else too because you are paying for the perfect beach location! Considering the location and the attached restaurant and bar, the price is good too. If you are there to have a fun time in Port A you don't need some grand room with all the amenities. You get what you need and then you spend your time hanging out with the guests and out enjoying the area. The vibe was very laid back and fun and we were treated well too. Everyone was down to earth and beach-bum like which is exactly what you go there for. We hung out in the bar at night and had a delicious breakfast out on the deck the next morning with the perfect view and breeze. I'll definitely come back.

Thanks,
-Catherine

I stayed at this hotel in the off season. It was clean & quiet, staff was friendly, & the food was fresh & excellent. I felt safe there. The hotel is right on the beach. It's very laid back. I will definitely be going back!

Our favorite place in all of Port A! Convenient, clean, near the beach, good food, friendly staff. The restaurant on premises serves an incredible pot boil and the beer is always ice cold. So nice to just walk directly onto the beach.

Room Tip: 2 people can fit comfortably in the "economy" room however, it's nice to upgrade 1 ste...

Chuck and his staff are friendly enough. The location is terrific. If you want to hang out in your room and watch the tube all day this place aint for you but if its a cold room next to a bar with food and a pool and the gulf of mexico The Beach Lodge ROCKS!

Room Tip: Pool on one side.

The Port A Beach Lodge is all about location. It's right on the beach. No more marching over the hot, sandy, bridges crossing the dunes. Just walk out the door and head to the beach. You can just carry your cooler, canopy, chairs and start enjoying your beach vacation.

Wonderful, friendly, knowledgable staff. If you want to know what to do and where to go just ask. They are local and know local.

Try the restaurant you won't be disappointed.

Share with your friends and send others elsewhere.
