“AWFUL PLACE TO STAY!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

My family and I recently booked a room here over the 4th of July weekend without doing our research. Lesson learned. This place was horrible. Think of a cheap looking motel and place the name “Ramada Inn” on it because that is what they did. Upon driving up, the outside appearance was awful. If other hotels were available we would have eat the cost for one day and stayed elsewhere. But since the Island was packed, we checked in and were more disappointed once we stepped into our room which they referred to as “The Apartment”. It was truly a dump. Lights not working in the kitchen area, bathroom light broken, Sofa smelled, carpet dirty, cracks along the ceiling in every room, bedding dirty, and holes in the walls with paper stuck in them to keep who knows what out. Our reservations were for 3 days but after physically seeing the room I walked back down stairs and told the receptionist that we would be cutting our trip short and leaving in the morning. The receptionist got very upset and threatened to charge us for 2 days because she said we had to provide 24 hours’ notice. Long story short, after whooping and hollering we were only charge for the one night stay.

Room Tip: No room here is worth your stay.

Saturday night was a nightmare!!! We were LIVID! The people next door decided to invite other rooms (at least 20 adults) to have a drunken party on the sidewalk in front of their door all the way down past our door. While the adults were partying on the downstairs sidewalk... their children were running upstairs on the balcony sidewalks screaming & playing. They bought hotel furniture outside, lined their bottles of liquor & beer on a hood of their car, they were screaming, laughing, cussing right in front of OUR DOOR. They were members of a cheerleading gym called "Cheer Town" staying at the hotel. The next day we had to travel 12 hours to get home, so we went to bed early at 11:00pm. I called the front desk THREE times about the party outside our door. The front desk response was that they would come and make them stop. After *3* calls to office & STILL NO HELP... at 2:30AM, I called 911. The police came and the party ceased. The front office told me on my 3rd call to them that they were going to call the police. The police told me that the hotel did not call them. The police told me I was the first call to report this disturbance at the RAMADA LIMITED. The party went on for over 2 1/2 hours ! RAMADA LIMITED DID NOTHING TO STOP THIS DISTRUBANCE!!! We are also a cheerleading gym that had recommended RAMADA LIMITED to our members, paying for many rooms. Our members were not outside partying and disturbing the peace. SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, TEXAS RAMADA LIMITED HAS POOR MANGEMENT. Do not stay here!!!

DO NOT STAY HERE!! Okay location but poor service. The cleaning lady was rude and we were locked out our hotel room for 2 hours. The management and owner took over two hours too try to figure out how to get us back in. They cut out a piece of the hotel in the bathroom and crawled, not safe. We stood outside with bugs and roaches, gross. This was family vacation and I will never come back to this hotel or any other that Ramada owns.

My husband and I got a free trip to south padre after going to one of those time share things. This was the hotel given to us. It was not the best but it was for free. The place was run down, the rooms seemed very cheep, and the toilet didn't work to well. Overall the fun stuff to do in south padre kept us out of the room so it was not to bad. But next time we go we are staying somewhere else for sure!
