“Great time to manage expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

so you want to stay on the island huh? Well get ready for hotels that cater to the party crowd as there were heards of 'elephants' up & down our hall way until 6am, even after a call down to the desk. The beds were decent, the pillows were terrible. The towels were dry some had holes in them. the water had a high concentration of chlorine that was unpleasent. Breakfast was good however and when we complained that our room a/c did not work properly we were ushered into another room with ease. Only problem is that the new room's a/c actually did work, but it sounded like a Harrier Jet ! can't win them all right....decent stay for the price but if you really want to get a good nights sleep I suggest somewhere else

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stayed 2 nights at this establishment, and found the staff to be very friendly and the king size bed was great! We were upgraded to a "room with a view" after finding out the room we had reserved had already been booked. The front desk staff were very accommodating and the room was a good size. The beach is across the street and easily accessable. The breakfast was very good. We enjoyed our first night so much, we decided to stay another day.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It is an older hotel, but well kept and very clean. The free hot breakfast was wonderful with a menu of scrambled eggs, biscuits, toast, rolls, a variety of meats, yogurt, make your own waffles, fruit, cereal, tea, juice and coffee every day! The pool and hot tub are nice. The hotel is in a good location. It is right behind MacDonalds so very handy for families.
The carpet in one of our adjoining rooms needed to be replaced, but other than that, we found it to be a good place to stay for a great price!!

For the most part this was a nice suite to stay in. It was clean, comfortable, and actually not too over the top in price. The staff was as helpful as they were able to be considering the timing of our visit. We were there over the 2012 Easter weekend & there was A LOT of partying going on all around town. The staff had quite a bit to attend to with all of the teenagers (with quite a bit of skin showing) that were all over the place. It was obviously our own fault for not being aware timing-wise with how that holiday is celebrated in the area. Wish we had chosen a different weekend, but it is what it is. The breakfast was good, just difficult to get to with all of the visitors. We would definitely return, just NOT on that weekend!

The staff was very nice and helpful. I am a diamond member and was given a free upgrade to a family suite which was greatly appreciated. The beach is not visable but is less than a 3 minute walk from the back of the hotel down a walkway without having to cross any streets so that was nice. The pool is heated and on the the sunny side and the side blocked by the wind. The hotel is a little dated but clean. Overall a great value and a very nice stay.

The location is great for a winter getaway. The people are friendly and helpful. The grounds are well-kept. The breakfast is fantastic! I especially enjoyed the Texas-shaped waffles. There are eggs and meat served each morning as well. Every morning we saw the sunrise on the beach. It is walking distance to many shops, restaurants and other local attractions. The pool is refreshing and a good size.

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth floor and loved it.

The friendly receptionist let us check in early.
The large room had 2 queen size beds plus a sofa so that 6 people could sleep in it. It also had a microwave and fridge with storage cabinets and a large table. The Wi-Fi worked well. As the hotel is located a little back from the main road we didn’t hear any traffic noise and enjoyed the view from the room on the 4th floor (#406), especially at sunset.
The room had an unpleasant smell though and we had a little problem with tiny ants. Because we spent only one night in the hotel we didn’t insist on changing rooms but they might have caused problems if we had had any food items with us.

We liked the location. The hotel is 2 minutes from the beach which can be reached through a small walkway. There are a McDonalds next to it and a Denny’s within walking distance.
The breakfast is good, many items to choose from and tasty juice and coffee.

We have stayed in the hotel before and we will stay there again. It is definitely good value for money.

It was a pleasure to pass along your comments to my staff regarding your most recent stay with us at Comfort Suites. We are so happy that your stay went very well. As for the problem regarding the little ants. Unfortunately, that has become a problem throughout the area, according to our pest management company? This is not the norm, at the hotel, or as I understand it South Padre Island. I only hope you continue to stay with us on future stays, so that we can still better serve you.

Thank You
