“South Padre weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

definitely recommend this hotel. The service is excellent the price is right and the food is good and the beach is nice and clean. My family and i enjoyed. My wife and i enjoyed the pina colada and the jacuzzi and the kids had fun on the beach and the pool. The service was good and we had luck with the weather which was excellent. We can't wait to go back on other weekend

My awesome stay on South Padre Island was tghe best Iv e had in a long time and staying at the LaQuinta on the beach was the best experience and made it better. The people were so friendly, the room was clean and really enjoyed the jetted tub in my room. I have always stayed at Laquinta since Ive worked for Trinity Mother Frances and have always been satisfied. Thank you for being the best for me!

My husband and I stayed July 4 to 7, knowing there would be families. We had an excellent room on the first floor with door leading to a small patio. Room with a suite and jacuzzi tub. Room was clean and A/C was cold. We had excellent service from the front desk, maids and the Bar/Grill Patio. Kids and dogs were not a big problem for us. It almost had the feel of Cancun! We both left very relaxed and will be returning.

Room Tip: Select a room on the north side 1st floor for quiet and view. South side faces Clayton Bar/Grill wal...

We decided on a last minute impromptu trip to SPI this hotel honestly was the only one left. We went for it and were well pleased! Location is excellent it's connected to a bar called Clayton's they had a free concert that night we were able to attend. The drinks at Clayton's were also good! The breakfast at the hotel was awesome! Large selection of items. No meat tho (if you're a meat person)... All rooms have balcony we had an ocean view and a pool view! Security is great also at the hotel you have to wear a resort bracelet to enter the hotel from the beach. The hotel is a very short walk or drive from restaurants and shops. They have onsite food places there and the Hilton which is on the property as well. If you're on a budget like we were this is an awesome place!

hotel was great!! on the beachfront and had access to a restaurant right next to it.
staff was friendly. i think though there should have been a curfew on small kids running in the halls after 11 pm but overall was good!!

We chose the La Quinta Inn on South Padre Island for it's location set away from the main tourist district on the island, and the reviews on this site. When we arrived at the hotel, we were told it would be 30 min more before our room was ready and that they weren't able to check us in at that time. 30 min later, we were told again it would be another 30 min. After 35 min waiting in line, we finally were able to check in. With four kids in tow, this is not how I wanted to start our vacation. Other hotels (Hilton and Marriott chains) have mastered the check-in process and it's a surprise LQI hasn't learned in this area. We booked a family room, and when we got to our room, we found it to be dark, damp, with dated decor. The room was designed with poor access if you require it - a couch was sitting right inside the door so that the door couldn't be opened fully! After pushing the couch back we noticed the family room across the hallway was being cleaned and we called the front desk asking to be transferred to that one. It looked much cleaner/nicer. However, the front desk told us that the people already checked-in for that room...despite the front desk previously telling us we couldn't check in early! ha!

To make the review go a bit faster, the manager (who we have talked to a couple times) is awesome! His team is pretty good (a girl who always seems to be on the front desk phone and two other helpful guys). The hotel has an always present feeling that it's prepped for Spring Break, and not for family vacations. For the price, spend the extra couple bucks and stay at the Hilton Garden Inn if you're a family, if you're single, go for it.
