Over all the hotel is a good hotel with beach access. Installations and rooms need to be improved as well as the lobby. I got a fair price because I was able to apply a discount in the room. The room carpet and balcony access need to be replaced. Felt the price was high for some kinda old hotel

The hotel is really old. Literally the only thing that has been updated is the t.v and even that was a little aged.This hotel is good enough if you're just sleeping here. There can be some problems there as well. It seems the hotel doesn't really enforce anything. Pool closes at midnight but we could still here people partying at... More

Thank you for staying at the Padre South Hotel. We work hard to make our guest's stay enjoyable. We appreciate your positive comments. We are sorry to hear you experienced some pest control issues that does not happen too often. Many guests tend to leave their balcony doors open to enjoy the sea air and that leaves the room open...

Excellent place, older hotel but still we highly recommend it. No breakfast is offered but many places to chose from or you can use the kitchenette in the room. We will definitely return. And it's close to the beach.

This multistoried hotel is right on the beach and the residents can walk straight to the ocean from the back gate. There is a nice shower at the back entrance to help the beach goers get a shower before they come into the deck/pool area. Even though it was built in the 70s/80s, the hotel has been well maintained.
