This was our 1st stay at this hotel. Very conveniently located, easy access to the beach. Very friendly staff. The room was clean. The price was very reasonable compared to the other hotels. The parking was a little tight but considering, it was fine. I have no complaints and will definitely stay here again and recommend it.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. I think the rooms were kept well. The only problem was the small breakfast room. Breakfast should be listed as mini-continental, I was disappointed in the selection. Also book in advance because the price of the room was not worth the money we paid.

We booked this hotel online for a function we had at South Padre Island. It looks fine online, but when we arrived at 11 pm on a Thursday night it was a different story. We couldn't even get into rhe parking lot. Finally someone came out and told us to park in the handicap spot. It was very dark. We... More

This place is advertised as a hotel and Resort. The only thing resort about it is the hot tub. The parking spaces were for compact cars and were so tight we had to pull out in order for everyone to get in. Breakfast is a joke, the only thing hot was the fresh waffles. Toast was pretoasted. The lone was... More

We stayed in the villa but the room was not clean enough, the phone didnt work, the bathroom door didnt work. The service was not good enough also when we needed something, we have to ask for it twice or more. It has a good location eventhough we have to walk to go to the beach but it's near. It... More

We paid extra for the balcony which I highly recommend. The view was great! But the rooms were dirty. Sheets didn't look fresh and there was I saw a couple bugs. If this place was cleaner it would be great!

Definitely coming back here. It was very private. The lake view was beautiful. & the room was much better than expected. We weren't bothered whatsoever, our stay was great. Would've wanted the ac to be on before our arrival and for it to be a bit more potent. But all in all, great place.
