My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights - a nice quiet hotel.
The breakfast is your typical hotel breakfast but it is complimentary & how can you complain with that. The rooms have a kitchenette & the maid runs the dishwasher for you daily & puts the dishes up. The fridge has an icemaker so ice is always at your fingertips. Nice comfortable bed & a tv in the front room & one in the bedroom. There is an area outside that you can grill out & then the pool area is seperate. Pool is heated & felt nice here in Feb. Hot Tub is available. Monday thru Thursday night they have a happy hour with real food such as spagetti & meat balls - pizza - club sandwiches - different one every night.
Staff is extremely pleasant. Would stay here again if in this area.

I stayed at the Residence Inn during my 1-month stay in Brownsville while I was in town for work. The hotel is very well kept, clean and staff members are very friendly. Right on Hwy 77, it’s in a row of several hotels and right across from Sunrise Mall. As you can see in the photos, the room is spacious and the kitchen came in very handy! Nicely stocked with pots/pans, etc. for a long stay! I definitely took advantage of the included breakfast and high-speed internet connection. Definitely recommend this hotel for your next stay by the border

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2005

This was my first stay at a Residence Inn. The rooms are very spacious, but seem cheaply furnished. Unremarkable beds. The breakfast was good, but they have a shortage of tables that left people waiting every morning. Next time I come to town I'll stay at the Hampton Inn across the highway (it appears to be near completion). Hamptons are better appointed and have far superior beds.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2005

My wife and I stayed here so we could pay half the price of the pricier hotels on South Padre Island. The hotel and rooms are very clean and has a friendly staff. The rooms were wonderful little apartments complete with kitchen, dishes, and cookware. The breakfast was included and had a good selection to choose from. The only one issue I had was the air conditioning units in the rooms. They use central AC that creates a very low bass frequency that sounds like a large truck is parked outside. This is due to the construction of the ducts and the entire room becomes a subwoofer. We turned our AC off but the neighbor's permeated through wall. After about 15 minutes of tossing and turning we were able to fall asleep and had a good nights rest. The hotel is across from a mall and is about 45 minutes from South Padre Island. Overall a great value.
