5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I have stayed here a number of times the past year and I have always been pleased. Clean, bright and I kind of dig the lake behind it. I sit on the benches and look at the weird ducks that live there lol.
Anyway, good rooms and all amenities are are right on the ball. I enjoy talking with the staff, always friendly and they steer me right when I want to go see something.
Breakfast is exactly the same as all the other HIEX- good..
There is a restaurant across the lake is pretty good too. You can walk over there..just kind of follow the lake around.

You will like this place just fine!

Well, this was not great. Rooms good, great for sleeping, bathrooms, a little bit of care needs to be taken in them. Remodel the showers and make sure the maids do clean the floors and corners. The hot tub, is not hot...warm. The HIE breakfast did not have all that it was to have and not happy. Next time, I'll try a different HIE.

Room Tip: I would see if you could get one on the Resasca side.

Went to a wedding and stayed here for a long weekend. Staff was helpful in giving us ideas of what to do and the hotel isn't far from the beach. Overall good experience, the rooms were nice...definitely look forward to coming back.

My week long stay at this hotel was every bit the experience I could ask for. The staff was quick, nice, and effective... My room was always clean and my belongings were neatly placed when I would return. There was always ample parking, and was in a nice area, so there was never any reason to feel uncomfortable. One thing that i really liked was the lake front view... as well as the varied dinner options conveniently near the hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2009

This hotel is remarkable because it's got nothing to stand out with.
Room was fine - old tube TV that cut off parts of the picture.
The kitchenette would be convenient if we needed it.
The shower was nice and big.
Easy drive to South Padre for the day.
The front desk staff can be described as indifferent.

The morning breakfast is pretty decent - but check the date on the milk container - mine was spoiled and I didn't realize it until I had a spoonful of cereal.

Overall, I don't see myself going back to Brownsville anytime soon, but this is going to be just like all the rest in that town.
