My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend at this hotel. Was it some fancy resort that I wanted to stay in the room all day? Of course not. However it was clean and comfortable and The staff was friendly. It is an older hotel so don't expect extravagance. If you need a clean place to sleep for...

I feel that people don't give this hotel the credit it deserves. The hotel is 50 years old, but so what? The front desk isn't the "sweetest" or most smiling of people, but ANYTHING that I asked of them was somehow fixed and or taken care of. I am there to have a vacation, not to make friends with the...

Booked the suite over looking the ocean 14 July 2014 for my family. Accepted the high price of $265\night so that my extended family that came from Japan could really enjoy the beautiful beaches and relaxing atmosphere. We got to the hotel and I started the check-in process. Got the keys and sent the family up to the room while...

Clean and tidy, if not a little dated. Air conditioner worked great. Dishwasher was out of order but it wasn't a big deal since we weren't going to be cooking/eating in the room. Bed and bedding were okay; not luxurious but clean. Staff was friendly. Great location; close to everything.

I've stayed at Padre South since 1984 and each year the hotel and their General Manger (GM) have sent it down the drain in both service and facility appearance. It seems the GM (L. Leal) who has been there for over 30 years has passed on her lack of pride in her work to other employees. Never have I experience...

For the money you pay here you can find a better place to rest your head. If your under the age of 31 they make you fill out a "damage report" of your room and they can charge you if there is something wrong. The pillows were lumpy, beds were hard. Smells old and like mold. They are very serious...

I will not spend a dime of my money on this hotel. Major security issues and they have a no concealed weapons sign on the door. This makes this a gun free zone that all the criminals target. Good luck with that.
