For our first experience with the fabled South Padre Island culture we decided to splurge a bit on a Holiday Inn. Turns out they were very reasonable, especially for a resort destination! On January 20 and 21, 2014 we were charged less than $90/night for two queen beds, (pretty good beds!) with outdoor hot tub, heated outdoor pool, flat screen TV, wonderful hot breakfast, interior hallways, elevator, and free parking. There is a marked 1 ½ block walking path to the beach. The culture of this inn, and this community, reflects an appreciation of winter Texans which we hope to become eventually, and they provide an even more spectacular rate if you stay 30 days or more (Plus, in Texas, staying more than 30 days excuses you from the hefty Texas hospitality tax about 18 percent if memory serves.). We can not say enough about this lovely inn. The breakfast room already in January- was filled with winter Texans, all of whom wanted to include us in their activities. The hotel itself sponsors and/or organizes many activities including golf, cards, fishing and bird watching at the nearby (across the road) bird sanctuary. If you are looking for a place to spend the winter we can easily recommend this facility. One negative; the elevator gave the impression it might fail at any minute, but of course it didnt.
