“Great location on the beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

The main reason I chose this hotel was for the location and secondly for the price. We got a second floor beach view with jacuzzi. The room view was amazing. The balcony is small but usable for standing. The beds were above average for comfort. Having two tvs was a nice surprise but the main tv didn't get all the channels and they were staticy even after maintenance looked at it. Having a couch, chairs and a desk was convienent. Overall the hotel was nice. The carpets need to be either deep cleaned or replace. The bathroom was clean but there were stains. The bed sheets felt ok but did not stay on yhe mattress. The free wifi did not always work and would not allow you to stream any content. The free breakfast is about what you would expect for free - good but not great. The outside pool and jacuzzi was always clean but needs to be better maintained. The were pieces broken off of the pool and the jacuzzi made a horribly loud sucking noise. The outdoor showers were 75% broken. The chairs around the pool were very cheaply made out of pvc and the cloth was moldy. You have to make sure to bring your towels down from your room because there are none available poolside.The first floor lobby area was being renovated so it was a mess to get around but it was cleaned up by the weekend. The room service wasnt very good, and didnt give us all the food we ordered. I didnt go back because the language barrier was to much to deal with. By far the best thing was being a short walk to the beach. The hotel staff was always friendly and accomodating. We really did enjoy our time here and would pssibly consider coming back but will check others that are close to the beach first.

Valued guest,

We’re glad you chose to stay at La Copa Inn during your visit to South Padre Island. We always try to have low, affordable rates for our guests to enjoy. It is of great delight you were able to enjoy the beautiful gulf view from your personal balcony. We are glad to let you know we have fixed the WI-FI issues and have taken action on our carpets. Please reconsider staying with us again for an improved experience.

Best regards,
Aaron R

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed here in order to attend the wedding of a friend, who was married at a nearby hotel.

There are pros and cons to the hotel. Overall, we had a good stay, and I'd be happy to stay there again, but it didn't blow me away.

Pros:
* Close to the beach
* Very clean rooms and common areas
* Our room had a (tiny) balcony, even though we didn't upgrade to a room with a view. We could see ocean, but only barely.
* The free breakfast is plentiful and delicious. We missed out on the omelette station, since it's not visible from the buffet area.
* The bed was comfortable but not amazing.
* There was a small sitting area (small couch and two chairs), which was nice.

Cons:
* As others have pointed out, this is an older hotel and could use some updating.
* The whole place is tiled -- which I understand, given the proximity to the beach -- but it makes for a really loud stay. Slamming doors and loud voices echo here, rather than being damped by the carpet. There apparently was at least one large family reunion there when we were, and they were a loud family -- lots of yelling, lots of kids.

We didn't have much interaction with the staff, but they were courteous and helpful when we did encounter them.

We got into the hotel late at night, so we didn't get the room we asked for the first night. The manager was wonderful when she changed our room and moved us to the second floor and we had a wonderful time in a fantastic room. If you want peace and quite, please don't choose the first floor. Access to the beach was great, we really had an amazing time. Breakfast was delicious, quite busy so it's best to show up very early in the morning or towards closing time. I remember this place a lot...such wonderful memories.

Room Tip: The second floor was the best around the elevator area.

A group of us, about 40 people stayed at this hotel and all of us had a wonderful experience. I held my wedding in their reception hall and arrived days before w/family. The rooms were spacious and clean and each one of my family members had something good to say. The manager Eduardo accommodated all of us to the best he could and so did All of the staff. Everyone and everything was just wonderful. Breakfast area was clean and delicious. Our wedding turned out beautiful that we had to have in their reception area at the last second. Never was i told anything was impossible...very pleased and happy i chose this hotel to have my wedding at. My family and i will definitely be returning.

This is my 2nd year in a row coming to this hotel. They redecorated the lobby area so it looks much more trendy. Free breakfast was great and on our floor, the 4th floor, so that was nice. Nice staff and very clean hotels. Tons of other families with children too so that is comforting. Access to the beach is still awesome and the location is outstanding. Had fun here with the kids and recommend it to anyone looking for a family oriented place at a great price.

I was skeptical about staying at La Copa due to some mixed reviews I had read, but my personal experience was very positive. The staff was courteous, and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable despite some ongoing renovations (which really didn't bother me). We had originally booked a regular room with a jacuzzi, but due to the renovations it was unavailable. We wound up getting upgraded to a room with a beach view and big balcony, which we absolutely loved. Any other little hiccups (hot tub not working properly, vending machines acting funky) were quickly addressed and fixed when reported. We stayed for three nights which got us a 30% discount online, so the nightly rate was excellent for a beachfront hotel. Its not huge or fancy, which is what I like about it, but the rooms are still nice and clean with comfy beds. I stayed there during off-season so it was nice and quiet. My only suggestion would be to have your own water and sodas since the drinks in the vending machines and in the dining area are $2. Overall a great place to stay!

I actually work for Hotels.com and i went to take my family on vacation and the first time to visit this hotel i didnt tell them who i was but i have tosay i will definitieley go abck, the room was fantastic, the staff and the everyone was very helpful. the breakfast was unbeliveable , i ate til i was stuffed, i have to tell you the omelette station was so great, i ate one every morning and so did my family, The beach access is great , a wooding boardwalk all the way to the beach , the other hotels around you ahd to walk on the sand all the way but its not that far, the walkway i loved, the pool was clean we enjoyed happy hour, I have to say that there isnt enough room for me to write what i loved about this hotel. yes it could use a little updating, but the staff and the respect that we all received from everyone is far more important then the updating, go stay at this hotel and enjoy the great hospitality and this was for the whole island,, Love Love Love

Room Tip: pick a ocean view,, the best way to get up in the morning and ist on the balcony and enjoy the waves...
