This hotel is a great family place to stay in North Padre Island, as most of the hotels are on the mainland side and there are jellyfish over there. Thats why we love this spot, good waves, ocean access and close to the ocean, nice pool and hot tub. Family friendly environment but no free breakfast. Rooms are unusually small but adequate. You are definitely paying for ocean access, pool, restaurant and ambiance as the price has risen significantly since we started going here.
There is a gift shop with some pool toys and sundries and they have daily activities for kiddo's as well. The items are priced reasonable.
The nice thing about this hotel is the outside bar and snack shop, and live music on the weekends. Its really nice to be out there with the light breeze, a cool drink, a live band and people dancing and having a great time by the pool.
They also rent beach toys and surfboards and cabana's and lounge chairs. (Nothing is free) The beaches are pretty clean and it's a nice stay plus you can go from the beach to the outside shower and to the pool.
The drawback is that there is nothing special about the rooms. No big beds because the rooms are small and simple but you spend most of your time outdoors anyway.
Its a short drive to the mainland for restaurants and activities and everything is right off of the freeway and its easy to find your way back.
No one welcomes pets on the Island but they do have a kennel you can board your pet. Its too hot to leave any animal in a car at all.
Ocean side views are offerred but front ocean rooms are more costly and the windows are often salty and foggy. I think they only offerred two full size beds.
