I was there for a wedding of a friend. They had blocked some rooms right across the street from the church. The price was outrageous to say the least so we were lucky enough we had a friend with an RV set up in Rockport. Granted the drive was a little inconvenient BUT, I can buy A LOT OF GAS... More

Stayed here on a Friday Saturday night. Was not impressed at all. The shower head was terrible and the room kind of smelled like a nursing home. I could've lived with all that but the first night it sounded like there were a heard of elephants up stairs learning to tap dance. I have NEVER been in such a loud... More

The hotel is a nice hotel, my only complaint was that the walls are thin. We could hear the TV on in the next room very clear and then you can hear people running or walking in the rooms above. Other then that this is a nice hotel for the price

We always stay at Alister Square Inn when we stay overnight in Port Aransas. We have yet to have had an unpleasant experience - and this time was no different. It's a good, clean, inexpensive (especially in the off season!) place to stay that's close to good restaurants and pubs/bars. Perfect for a night of pub-crawling! We had a room... More

this hotel should not be worth no more then 40 dollars due to the fact of the noise. the noise in this hotel is really loud even after 1 am or even 2 am. if your lucky enough to get some sleep you will save your self from seeing lights of police outside the windows flashing blue and red. usually...

We've been coming to Port A since our honeymoon in 1997. We've stayed here two of the last 3 times we've come. If people want to see a "bad " place to stay I could recommend one and this would "NOT" be it. Our room both times (on opposite sides of the motel) have been clean and pristine just like... More

This place is nice. It would've been nice if housekeeping changed the sheets every other day instead of every four. This IS a beach town. Considering we spent little time inside, it was perfect for us. They were TRULY accommodating. Pet friendly.

We stayed here with our dogs on an spur of the moment mini-vacation. The room was clean and since there was no carpet it was great in case the dogs had an accident. We stayed 4 nights and never had any problems.

Once, I had a manager at a restaurant where I worked, who rigged the air conditioning to only work in his office. Now, it appears that I've found a motel that rigs the Wifi to only work well in THEIR office. Since their rates were more reasonable on the island during a summer week than many other places, we went... More
