“"Cannot be beat for the price (off-season) and Excellent Family Vacation Value!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We had an Ocean view suite for seven nights and it was great! The hotel is older and in desperate need of updating, but it was extremely clean.

The public areas were in great repair, but the bathroom fixtures, bathrooms themselves, and the pool could all use to be refurbished.

The staff was very friendly, and there were people cleaning various areas of the hotel 24/7. They had a nice section of beach just beyond the pool and a snack bar on the patio by the pool (limited hours).

The Hilton Garden next door has a full service restaurant and Claytons Beach Bar is also right next door. They had fireworks over the beach on Friday and Saturday nights right up until the end of October.

When you consider seven nights in a two queen bed (and sleep sofa) suite with a full Ocean view, and a full hot breakfast included every morning for $500 total, I think this was a very good value (especially for a family).

The included breakfast had scrambled eggs alone or with various meats (sausage, ham, and chorizo), potatoes, waffles, fresh fruit, cereals, bagels, muffins, etc… The meal alone can save a family quite a bit over the course of a week. The food was always fresh and the serving/dining areas very clean.

I would recommend this hotel and will probably stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep, ask to be on the side opposite of Claytons Beach Bar - very loud until the mid...

Great location on the beach! Rooms were clean and Service was good. I would recommed this hotel for a families or couples. The pool area is a bit small but the property is located on the beach so we didn't spen much time at the pool anyway. I would defiantly book this hotel again if visiting Padre.

We had to move over here from the Hilton because they were sold out for an additional night. We stayed in room 343.Our full view of the Gulf was wonderful and it made our day! The front desk let us check in a hour early. Unlike the Hilton, there was a free full breakfast buffet; the waffles and strawberries, sausage, eggs, fruit and even chorizo and eggs was great!We will definitely stay here again.or people on a budget,this was like getting a resort -type experience without the extra $$$.

After reading some of these reviews, I was pleasantly surprised. I also do not have caviar taste on a tuna fish budget either. The price was awesome for our ocean view room, they gave me a military discount as well. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I was really impressed with the overall quality of this La Quinta, based on some that I have seen. (I used to work in the Hospitality industry). Our room was clean and met standards. Breakfast had a great selection. The bar next door did not bother us at all and we had one of the closest rooms to the bar. Honestly, the bar provides a free fireworks show on Fri and Sat that the guests can enjoy. I think people should be thankful. Beds were comfy and pillows were nice. Loved our balcony. The dogs staying at the hotel did not bother us at all, however we are dog lovers. (Even the yappy little guy down the hall. could hear him in the hall, but not in the rooms.) Quite bluntly, if you don't like animals, ask if hotels are pet friendly or not. It can hinder the whole experience if you are not a
fan of animals. Best vacation in a long while, will be coming back here!

We got here on Tuesday evening and the desk clerk asked what room we would like. With a partial view or ground. We got to our room,3rd floor. Just like the picture online. View was wonderful.! The hallway did smell musty and looked worn. Maid forgot got our washcloths but overall very pleased. Breakfast was great. We got up to a hot free breakfast everyday. We stayed 3 nights. Very short walk to the beach. Great sitting area outside. Pool was small for the size of hotel but we had a whole ocean to swim in. I would stay here again.
