“Nice hotel & Pet friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in a King Jacuzzi suite Dec.22nd - 24th. Booked on Hotel.com for $60 a night. Great price for the room. It was very large and had a nice sitting area. The room was clean and bed was comfy. Not much of a view because we we're on the first floor. We chose this hotel because we we're traveling with our dogs. There were a lot of dogs at the hotel so if your not a dog lover it's probably not the place to stay. Beach area was nice. Pool was like bath water which was great in December.

Room Tip: We would probably get a room on a higher floor with a view next time

We use LaQuinta almost exclusively, because of the pet friendly policies. This hotel is very nice! We stayed on the third floor overlooking the beach to the north (odd numbered rooms). An added bonus for us was the natural setting and plenty of wildlife to see right out the door to the balcony at the state park, next door. Very quiet setting, and one of the better LaQuintas we have stayed in. Staff is very courteous and knowledgeable about the area. Beach and pool are easy to reach and very inviting.

Room Tip: North Side (Odd numbers) on the 3rd or 4th floor are great if you like serenity!!

Stayed one night on December 13th, a very good time to avoid crowds and get low rates. We were on the third floor, beachfront, for less than $100 including tax. The pool and beach were only a few steps away, The breakfast was very good with bacon and three choices of eggs as well as other standard La Quinta fare. The TV reception was below average, but the wifi was very good. Across the street is great bird watching at the Birding Center and around the Convention Center. Also saw alligator and turtles there.

Room Tip: Go third or fourth floor toward ocean. Beachfront good, but not a must.

Some people will love this hotel. We might be a bit too hotel "snobby" for it. We do typically like Starwoods (Sheratons, Westin, etc) and this place isn't remotely close to one of those. I found the breakfast inedible (no fresh fruit, or fresh baked items... just hot waffles and some scrambled eggs with "stuff" in it). I also found the hotel to be less than clean.

However, is there a good value to be found here? Sure. The pool area is pretty nice and warm (although broken - the hot tub is crumbling). The views from the north facing rooms are very nice (avoid south facing rooms if you can). The beach area (minus the giant sewer pipe) is decent but not as nice as the southern South Padre beaches in my opinion. The "free" drinks include beer and wine from a box. For a modest upcharge you can get better stuff.

Again - cleanliness is in the eye of the beholder, but the hallways and rooms felt like they could use a bit more TLC. The first floor area is newly tiled and looked nice. The stairways were especially dirty.

Staff is nice and accommodating. The next door Hilton Garden Inn (owned by same people) is much nicer (and much more expensive).

The hotel allows dogs, and you will see them everywhere. Our favorite hotel (by far) at South Padre is The Pearl.

Room Tip: Avoid South Side rooms.

Great location, friendly staff, extra clean rooms, big free breakfast, and the best mattress my back has ever felt. I have stayed at more expensive hotels in my travel assignments, but this was a last minute thing. I don't regret it, and recommend it to all my fellow nurses and doctors that I work with. You can choose the ocean water or swimming pool. You can sit in the sand with a beach umbrella or by the pool , either way you can't beat the view. What a hidden treasure your hotel is. Check them out. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: Pay extra to see and hear the ocean at night, it's worth your attention to recognize some of GOD...

pleasantly surprised!!! we arrived early and to our surprise the front desk was happy to let us check in at noon!! (might not always work as they were pretty slow for december), but we were very grateful for it. Rooms were clean, maintenance was painting walls and performing upkeep. Breakfast was great. We'll definitely be back!!
