“Simple and efficient.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Yes it is plain, but I paid only $40.02 including tax for my stay. Also they now have shampoo and lotion on request; a previous reviewer stated that it was not available. The ac/heat is digital, which is nice; some older hotels are still using the dial-type which i can never get to the right temp. Overall as good as it gets for South Padre under $50 per night.

My husband, son and I stayed here for New Year's Eve. Yes it is plain jane but when on a budget it did just fine. It has a mini fridge and mini microwave about 700 watts. The bed was decent but the pillows were not quite pillows anymore. Be sure to bring your own shampoo/conditioner and lotion, since it is not provided. I did not notice much noise considering I am a light sleeper. Breakfast was disappointing. There was only cheerios and raisin bran, bread to toast, oj, apple juice, and coffee.

We didn't want to spend a lot but we wanted a nice, clean place to sleep. This is a nice hotel. It was clean & accommodating. The personnel were kind and helpful. I like that they had a refrigerator and microwave in the room. We will stay here again when we return on a warmer day.

Customer service wasn't great, did not present himself,not professional, too much clutter on front desk, hallways felt muggy, bath towels had other persons hair and also floors,that was gross, We had to buy our own towels at a beach store. Some lights in the room did not work. The bed was old, dented, broken, was not comfortable with 2 pillows only which we're also dirty! Never going back. Don't spend your money here not worth it.

Room Tip: Don't come to beachside, it's crap

If you are looking for a nice hotel to lounge in, this is not it. It serves it's purpose as a place to lay your head and that's about it. Close enough to the beach to walk but not on the beach like the photo shows. Complimentary breakfast was cereal and bread. Only bar soap provided in the bathroom. They do have a fridge and a microwave which came in handy. Not bad for the price but no luxury, no extras.

One word will describe this hotel - disgusting. Definitely not worth the price. Would rather camp out on the beach instead. The floor was damp all the time and the bed linens did not appear clean. When paying over $300 for a room you expect to get a good quality clean room.

Room Tip: Clean rooms and update with new bed linens. floor was damp all the time
