We arrived without reservations on a beautiful spring weekend (and biker fest) and asked if there were any beach front rooms for 2 nights. The desk manager offered us a great deal (about 40% off the on-line rack rate) and we were happy to take it. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. We especially enjoyed the balcony facing the beach. The hotel was busy, but handled the crowds very well. The $9.95 buffet breakfast offered great variety, good food and good service. A big bonus for us is that the hotel is directly across the road from the South Padre Island Birding Center and the Convention Center. On this particular weekend, the trees behind the Convention Center were filled with migrating warblers, orioles, buntings and more. The Birding Center boardwalks offered great close-up views of many other migrants and resident shore birds.
We'll be back.
