“Overall happy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We are younger couple with a young child and we were a bit surprised at how many older people were here. That's not the Hilton's fault though. I bet everything switches at Spring Break!

The location on South Padre was perfect. Right next to a big beach bar. The pool complex was above average! The staff were VERY friendly and accommodating!

Dear guest,

We appreciate you taking time out of your day to leave an excellent review of the Hilton Garden Inn. It’s great to know you love our location being on the beach and right next to Clayton’s beach bar and our superb staff. Overall, we’re glad you had a great time as a couple with your child. Please come visit us again, we would feel honored if you did!

Best regards,

We have only been here a day but we can see this is a very nice location. It backs up to the beach with a very large pool in between. Friendly staff and a clean room does it for us. We haven't eaten at the restaurant yet but the food smells delicious. The bar is small but well equipped with a friendly bartender giving great advice on restaurants. This is a great buy.

Nice hotel. There are several "must visit" restaurants on the island so the only meal we ate at the hotel was breakfast and it's great. Make sure you try the omelette with extra jalapenos!

The rooms are spacious and clean. The ocean view rooms are worth the extra if you can get one. Sunrises can be spectacular.

It's located on the far north end of domesticated portion of the island so it's a little more quiet. It's within walking distance of the Sea Turtle rescue facilty. Beach walks are wonderful.

The only issue we had was with the room door lock. We had to have maintenance re-scan the lock each night. Watch out for room #406.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean view. Reservations recommended.

Great service, great breakfast, nice pool area (although not heated so we were unable to use as it was not warm enough, not a heated pool). Staff very receptive and music entertainment each nice. Overall, very satisfied.

Right on the water with miles to walk each direction. Great bar and restaurant too with room service. Very large pool with 2 hot tubs. Very much a resort fill without the resort price. Top notch place to stay! If we were to stay on South Padre again this is the place!

Would like to commend the Hilton Garden Inn and the friendly staff they have at the front desk. In particular Alberto Alvarez who seem to go above and beyond in helping find me a reservation. I am planning to bring some people from out of town(older ones) and Mr.Alavrez not only took time to find me an appropriate room but also showed my wife and the room!
He was very mannerly and helped us look for the best deal. Hats off to Alberto Alvarez who represents the Hilton Company very well. He's a keeper.

Room Tip: Ask for help from front staff as to your needs.Particularly helpful is Alberto Alvarez
