“Great Beach Hotel and Very Pet Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

My friend and I stayed here while on vacation and had a very pleasant stay. I had brought my dog and she was able to stay for no extra cost. I would not book this hotel for a romantic get away, but it would make for a fantastic family vacation spot at a reasonable price. We went at the beginning of May and were able to get a room for $63 a night with a AAA discount. I would not recommend getting a gulf front room as it would most likely be quite noisy from the pool below and the bar next door. We stayed on the side facing the HIlton and heard very little outside noise. The hotel staff were friendly and there was great beach access. There is also a snack bar by the pool which serves regular and adult beverages.

Room Tip: The rooms on the north side facing the Hilton are very quiet. There is a noisy bar on the south sid...

Lq SPI was a great value. It's a full service hotel right on the beach with poolside grill and bar. Perfect for weekend get away. Spouse and I never left hotel. Right next door stumbling distance you have one of most popular island bar with live entertainment. The hotel next door offers similar service as lq and charges twice as much for their rooms. Spouse already booked next visit, and we're taking the kids.

I stayed here for business and pleasure On the 2nd of May this year. The best value is stay during the week from Sunday night through Thursday Using the Southwest green value coupon book. This is available for many Texas Welcome Center. Stay on the top floor It is the most noise free do too thin ceilings. There elevators at each end of the hall. Parking is very good. But they should at ballet because it's a long walk to the end of the driveway. Excellent breakfast. Both American and Southwest Mexican style. Great pillowtop beds And every room has a setting balcony ihat viewa the Gulgroad of Mecico.Also a great beach For swimming and surfboarding and sailboarding. Don't forget to stop at Joe's restaurant behind the post office in Port Isabel across the bridge, Fantastic seafood and cheap prices. Adios amigos.

I was at this hotel between the 25th and the 29th of April 2013. On the 28th morning, after breakfast I left my purse on the chair in the breakfast area at closing time. We were almost the last to leave. When we did there was only one person still having breakfast and it was past 10:00 am so noone else could have come in. my purse was hanging from a chair that was right in front of the kitchen door in a corner to the side of the room. As soon as I discovered my purse was missing, I ran back to the breakfast area and I was informed by the staff that they had brought my purse to the concierge. There i found my purse. My ID and credit cards were thankfully there but my cash was all gone, save for one dollar. It was about $80.00. I complained to the front desk, but they did not even make the slightest attempt to write down a report, or promised to ask the staff about my purse and its contents, they pretty much just stared back. Unsatisfied by their reaction, I went back minutes later and asked them whther they could look at their cameras, but they said apparently they had none in the breakfast area. I strongly suspect the staff. I will not be back.
Also, there was construction during the weekdays right next door so we were awoken every day to incessant hammering. On the weekend, loud music from a business next door went on until midnight. The pros are that it is on the beach, with a very nice access, it is sufficiently clean, it is close to a bird nature preserve.

The hotel was very clean, there was an abundence of staff about, especially mopping the tile on the first floor that lead to the pool. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The pool was usually too crowded to enjoy, but thinned out to tolerable levels on weeknights after 9 pm. The front desk desk was very helpful, even gave my daughter some burn cream to help with pain after she encountered a man o' war on the beach. The beach front location was nice.
