“Family/Pet Friendly Vacation Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Great place to stay if you are looking for a family friendly environment. Staff was very pleasant, accomodations were clean and pleasing, and easy access to the beach. Love that we could bring our fur babies with us at no additional charge and our human babies loved it too. Breakfast was so nice because unlike other hotels we had been to there was a person making the Texas shaped waffles for the guests. That was so appreciated with having young kids because we could just get our waffle and eat...no waiting in line working with a hot griddle trying to feed a family of 5. It was also very close to a lot of the attractions (sea turtles, horse back riding, bird center, whale wall) . Loved it.

We stayed at the La Quinta in the first week of June this year for 4 days. Monday thru Friday. Our room was a Ocean front Queen executive suite, located on the fourth floor. It had balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean. Our room also had a bar and a separate sitting area and desk and also a Jacuzzi . It was a very nice room and up to date. I was very happy with the room. My only complaint was the air conditioning was pretty loud. The maid service did a great job every day. They changed out the towels daily. The front desk staff were very friendly and welcoming.
The breakfast is located on the 3rd floor. They have a good selection of food. The omelet station is a nice extra!

The pool is kept clean . I don't like how they don't let you bring your own drinks to the pool, but it isn't the end of the world. The ocean is just steps away which was very nice.

At the beach there are no chairs supplied or umbrellas. You will have to rent them daily for $20.00 for the umbrella and $7.00 per chair. We thought that was way too much, so thank goodness I had read some other reviews before going and someone had suggested going to walmart and buying them there. That was what we did and saved.
This is our second stay at this property and we enjoyed ourselves both times. If we return to south padre we will stay at the La Quinta again.

Hotel is a little out dated and need lots of improvement... Particularly the bathroom. Is not at all worth the price. They need to invest in UPGRADING! Was not at all pleased with hotel. Thank goodness we were there for only 1 day!

We’re sorry our hotel was anything less than you expected. Our goal is to aim for the highest customer satisfaction. We’re truly sorry we failed to deliver a great La Quinta experience. We are constantly adding improvements and would love if you gave us another shot the next time you’re in town.

Great location and very friendly front desk staff, however there are few things that could be better. After driving 12 hours to get to SPI the first night the power went out at 2am and the overnight front desk staff-employee and maintenance (kid that did not speak English) did not know what to do in this situation,,,not good. Also, in our room, the bathroom door was falling off the hinges and the Maint crew never responded to my request to them to fix the broken door. The first floor ice machine/laundry room smelled like sewage. FYI: my room definitely did not look like the the pics of the rooms that are advertised for this property.

Room Tip: Check it out first....

Wife was having a meeting in town. . We only live a few miles from Island so what the heck. . Make a weekend out of it.
Spend a few more hundreds. .. we usually won't but what the heck.
Went for the best. .. MISTAKE#1

1-You have to hike to lobby
2-Lobby was warm
(Mgmt says it's just been remodeled)
3- 3rd floor balcony doorknob
frozen (it's normal rust and understood) we couldn't get to outdoors. Some guy came by and plays with knob for 15 minutes. Wife tells him out needs wd40. Never acknowledged. . Leaves... never comes back. EACH TIME kids go outdoors u have to go to door to fight with it.

4- elevator stops mid floors. .. finally opens after a few minutes. Used stairs to go back down stairs. Some older woman gets caught between floors. Mgmt claims only about eight minutes. 8 minutes to get her out. . Her was longer in there up to the point they were notified. When she was out she was distraught. ..I was by back door. .I saw her!

5- NEVER BOOK ON WEEKEND
Claytons... a nice bar next door is LOUD ... later that night it died down which was nice.

6- THE PROJECT POOL
After the bar shut down the pool went on till about after 2 with no supervision. . No security to shut it down at a proper hour.
Kids yelling. . Screaming. .ughhhhh
NO SLEEP!

M GMNT DROPPED my bill by 30%. I still pay about $225 for a night of. ...well. .. I'll be nice.
I know mgmt is going to rebuttal my comments and I hope they do. I stand by what I stated. This isn't our 1st stay at a fancy place. SPI LA QUINTA.. contact La Galleria La Quinta- Houston and follow their lead and learn. A beautiful suite for $120 or so.. I know location. . location. . location
Your room is not worth no $320.

We didn't even pay $330 + tax in Hawaii in February... why was price up from 220 from this Friday compared to last Friday? 6/13 vs 6/20.

RATE THIS AT 2☆☆

We arrived on 6/14/14 we were given a parking slip, but later found out their employees were not required to in their allotted area but could use HC spaces w/o proper tags. The front 40 spaces are not for their customers but you can find the cleaning crew, maintenance people, front desk and managers. Asked them about this and nothing was changed. I know this may sound trivial, but when you come in after 10:00pm, expect to park way out in their lot.

Room Tip: You may need to remind them each time they clean your room, if you have move than 2 people they need...

Hotel was just off the beach and everything was great. Great breakfast buffet and everyone was so helpful. Unfortunately had to leave early because my asthma took over. We were given a $25 credit toward our bill because we left at 6 pm instead of spending the night there. I was a little disappointed with the credit but understood.
