“Good value for the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Kudo's to Luis, the breakfast coordinator, made sure those people who don't like to follow the rules had to stand in line for a waffle just like everyone else. How some people feel like rules don't apply to them, they make me sick. Had to wait an hour and a half at check-in as each room they assigned, smelled like feet or menudo. Finally got an acceptable room. Next time, am taking my own sheets, felt like I was sleeping in a sandbox. Beach access is great and with the free breakfast, is really a good value. Headed back there in 3 weeks. Yippee. Love S Padre.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Hotel advertises WiFi on its sign out front. Guess what - it's just slightly worse than passenger pigeon. At least you can use a passenger pigeon. I had to do a business deal at the last minute - relying on the hotel's wifi was impossible. I ended up typing a contract on my cell phone. Un-believable.

We asked the clerk to stay 3 more nights so we wouldnt have to move. They gave us a 50% surcharge for the weekend. We said no. And no WIFI. So we moved off the Island, where we got a room for 30% of what they were asking.

Staff is friendly - that could have been a win - but a nonfunctional room is a nonfunctional room. Minor quibble - but in case the management reads this review (unlikely due to their nonfunctioning WiFi) a third of the light bulbs were burnt out in my room.

How does this hotel stay in business? Stay away.

Room Tip: Stay in Haarlingen or one of the other off-island places.

Sharyland, Owner at Ramada Hotel & Suites South Padre Island, responded to this review, April 21, 2013
I must say this is one of the most bizzare reviews I have responded to. Time Warner is the only internet provider on the island. Sometimes wifi is slow because of Time Warner. The fact that you advise people to stay in Harlingen, thirty to forty five minutes away, leads me to believe the whole island was having an issue. Our routers are commercial grade and we have 14 of them. Last week I checked various locations on the property and got excellant signals everywhere. Advising people to avoid our property and stay in Harlingen proves there is one in every crowd.
