3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We spent two weeks here in February. The staff was courteous and helpful. There were
many Winter Texans here and we experienced only one noisey night. The breakfast area is much too small.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This was our 5th stay on the Island. The room was big, clean & quiet & included two queen beds, table & chair, refrig., microwave, coffee pot & coffee. I must say that we especially appreciated staff member "Ian" because we couldn't get the internet to work so he spent some time helping there. We couldn't get the remote to work so he came right to the room to bring us another one. He was most helpful, concerned about our comfort & needs as guests. There are repairs needed in the bathroom area due to water damage but overall our stay was great. We got the winter bargain rate. We enjoyed the breakfast bar - very well done. We will be back next winter (Winter Texans) & will stay longer.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I only paid 33.00 plus tax for my room so it was a bargain. This is a slightly older property but the room itself was very clean. I was in the office the evening of my stay and they were quoting 99.00. I would have felt ripped off if I had paid that much. The exterior, the common areas, sidewalks etc could use a good scrubbing and overall exterior cleanup. Lots of trash everywhere, broken lawn furniture and broken ice machines. If the exterior was cleaned up I would have given this 4 stars because of the price I paid.

Room Tip: I didnt stay there but I would avoid rooms near the one working ice machine. Seemed very loud to me...

This is my 5th stay here and although the furniture is outdated the rooms are vrey adequate. The beds are comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. The tv remote didn't work and was taken care of quickly by Ian. The price is more than reasonable for off season.

stayed for the month of january and had a nice, large room with couch, micro, fridge, wifi, breakfast, paper, pool and hottub just a block from the beach. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are light and airy and also include coffee maker with coffee/tea. The staff was very helpful in taking care of my business requests which included sending and receiving faxes. There are numerous restaurants and pubs within walking distance including the Padre Rita which is next door.

Room Tip: If there are only one or two the rooms with couch instead of second bed are very roomy and comfortab...
