“Great choice in South Padre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This hotel was very nice with clean and spacious rooms. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had! Great location right at the beach! The pool is nice also. This would be a great choice of hotel, no problems for us!

The place was clean, the staff were friendly but it is much more for families than for a couple's weekend away. Overall good experience. Nice bar & coffee stand. So many loud guests. So many dogs! The hotel can't control that, so I won't punish them for it.

Room Tip: Sometimes gulf view is not great...you will be directly above the pool which stays noisy for more th...

This was our first trip to this area. It's very lovely here. I compared it to Daytona Beach, Mobile, Pismo Beach and Galveston and this is by far the best! It was our 48th anniversary and we wanted a couple of relaxing days.
Check in was very efficient and quick. Not real friendly but very professional. No complaints.
We had a king room with no view but was actually able to see the ocean! I loved the feature wallpaper of the ocean! Set the vacation mood when we first walked in.
The room is nice and large with a sitting area that has a simple sleeper couch and a couple of chairs. There is a cabinet that holds the microwave and fridge. The balcony is very small, even smaller than a cruise ship! But I liked being able to get a feel for the weather. The floors are tiled throughout which I prefer over dirty carpets! It was freshly painted in gray/blues. Nice. I felt it was nice and clean.
The bathroom is nice sized. The vanity is in the bathroom. It has an older molded bathtub/shower and vanity. Simple amenities are offered Towels weren't too fluffy but decent quality.
The complementary breakfast is served on the fourth floor. Very nice and large area. There is an omelet bar made to order which is a nice touch. The waffles are already made and really tasty. I heated mine for 15 seconds in the microwave. The retried beans were also very good.
The weather didn't cooperate but the beach access and pool area is nice.
The only negative was the maid cleaned our room but forgot to replenish the towels and coffee. We informed the front desk when we went out to dinner and it was taken care of when we returned.
I would stay here again.

This place has so much potential. I have a window that opens, but no screen..? Lots of bugs coming in so I had to close the window. I have a ceiling fan but the chain is broken, so I can't change the setting. Nice little patio with a door that opened to it - but my patio chairs are covered in bird poop. And when I try to connect to the internet, my iPhone and computer both say the the connection is compromised. Lame. I realize that people traveling with dogs have to be flexible - but don't put me in a room that already smells like pee and charge me a $25 pet fee.

We enjoyed our stay here. The pool and beach were great. My daughter loved it and didn't want to leave the beach. Neither did we. The breakfast was great and you save a lot of money with the breakfast they provide. The only thing was I had to call about washclothes and toilet paper because they weren't replaced and we ran out. The toilet paper was a no brainer to me. Everything else was wonderful. We would stay there again. Very affordable and nice.

Booked two rooms we asked for side by side rooms beachfront. The person on the phone said no problem. My husband and I got a very uncomfortable dirty room down the hallway while my guest got a beachfront dirty room. It was a horrible visit and a horrible 21st anniversary. The staffs family were threatening people that actually paid to stay there. The Jacuzzi had floating nastiness no one would clean it guests that didn't stay took over the pool. They only had a good breakfast one day. Egg shells in the eggs. Room no water pressure in the shower. Sinks were stopped up. Lobby is all they spend money on. But also some of the guest and not guest very destructive. Towels dinghy. Sheets don't cover the bed. My second visit don't know what happened to this hotel. I was promised a discount and a beach front in a email still waiting on the email. What happened to the staff.

Breakfast is included and is totally worth it -- make your own omelettes, refried beans, toasts, juices, fresh fruit, cereal. All quite generous considering it's included.

The pool is nice. Hot tub had a lot of temperature issues, but was good. The pool bartender was great! We were pleasantly surprised how good the food is at the little bar restaurant in the hotel. There's a great deck that's about 100 yards off the pool area that brings you to the beach. You can rent chairs and umbrellas there.

Overall, the rooms were clean and remarkably spacious. Plus, the convenience shop and Starbucks on-site were helpful. Mere steps from Subway and Gabriella's, among a few other things, like Schlitterbahn. And the stop for The Wave is right out front.

Room Tip: First floor -- don't have to deal with the one elevator for four floors.
