The service was horrible from the beginning. They lost my credit card information multiple times, tried to charge us extra for various things, and the manager had the worst attitude! The front desk was also horrible and incompetent. The complimentary "breakfast" is in their small front desk area that includes stale cereal and ice filled milk. If you don't get there exactly at 10am they just shut off the machines on you. I also had to request several new keys due to the fact that the 4 they provided me would just stop working. Overall the most disappointing would probably be the horrible service from the manager. If you want to have a good spring break stay anywhere but here. Even at their price they will try to overcharge you for so much you might as well go somewhere nicer.

We stayed here one night when we first got to Padre this place is a pit. I would not take off my shoes in the room it was so dirty. The pool is a joke. They should not be able to use the name Days Inn.Do not go here you will not like it.
