We have an efficiency Time Share at Padre South. When the kids were little it was fine, last couple of trips we've upgraded to a larger room. The hotel is older and there are places where it shows it's wear. On this particular visit there was an AC line that "rattled" every time the AC turned on. (fairly annoying, I... More

I was a bit skeptical upon booking our room, due to the previous reviews that my fiancé and I had read. That being said, we were very pleasantly surprised!! Property was very well maintained, clean, and the staff was very friendly, as well as accommodating. Absolutely could not beat the location, as we were right on the beach. (It was... More

I loved how simple it was to get to beach. The hotel needs updates though. The hotel was packed so we didn't get to enjoy pools, but overall it was a great stay. I will probably try out another hotel next time though.

We came as a family, 2 adults, 3 kids and a baby. We reserved the double queen bed suite with NORTH ocean view. They had us on the top floor (it goes to 8) and we had an incredible view of both the ocean AND bay! We could see the fireworks from each on the different nights they did them.... More

I purchased a timeshare here in 1978, and have returned most years to use it. While this is an older property, it is clean and well-managed. I have seen many of their staff members for many years, which speaks volumes about how their employees are treated. Conveniently located on the island. I would recommend Padre South to anyone.

Overall we were very pleased with the size of our room. The hotel was located directly on the beach and was only blocks to all restaurants, stores and boat tours. The room and hotel were a bit dated but for the price, location and views it was worth it.

In general, a good hotel for families. Needs updating and more shelf/counter space. Nowhere to store our stuff and we were there for five days. Inconvenient. Also lighten up on the towel policy! One towel per person per day? Other than that was good experience. Friendly staff and access to beach. Even partial view was great from north side. Excellent... More

This is an older hotel, but the staff is very friendly and accommodating, the hotel is clean (which is super difficult at the beach), the facilities are nice and the location can't be beat!

The locación is OK, BUT THE ROOM is not very Clean, we found two cucarachas, one on the stove and one in the curtain, by the way, the curtains are very old, they need to be Changed. The way from the hotel to the Beach is not in very good condition, the public entrance is much Better and convinient.
