My wife and I had a good 2 night stay here. Third floor, kitchenette, queen bed, sofa sleeper. The hotel is old. Some would call it a classic. I do like the 1950 and 1960 styling of this place. Everything was functional. Everything was clean. Did not use the pool or hot tub. But they we in use frequently while... More

Awful, terrible and disgusting is all I have to say about this hotel. Do you really want to visit mexico without going to mexico. Do you like out of date rooms, overcharged, tacky, motel 6 type rooms! Well Padre South is your kind of hotel! This was the worst experience I have had staying at hotels in the last 6... More

Booked one queen bed, got two fulls instead due to their mistake...mgmt. offered no remedy or discount. The room and hotel for that matter smelled of mold. Pool was filthy and parking was a pain. The customer service personnel were inept and not helpful. Not worth the $$$- book elsewhere

I arrived with 3 bathing suits. On the first morning I couldn't decide whether to wear my red or blue one. I wore my red one and left my blue, and black one in the room. When we returned at night I was planning for the next day and thought I'd gone crazy because I couldn't find my blue swimsuit...I... More

Padre South Hotel had exactly what I needed for my trip. My mother likes to smoke and she wanted a hotel on the beach. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Despite the fact that they didn't offer a breakfast bar or room service, the kitchenette made up for it. All the appliances worked, and they... More

Let me just say, "you get what you pay for" at this hotel. I would rather pay a few extra bucks in the future. The lobby was utter disappointment. It looked as if they had hit up a few garage sales and just threw pieces of furniture together. Coffee (only) was offered in the mornings and there was one single... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel back in February 2013. Not the best place, but not the worst until we went out to the balcony one morning and looked down. The maintenance man was spray painting a refrigerator in a parking space right next to my new 2012 Camaro SS. It had overspray on it but thank goodness... More

This hotel is terrible, terrible service, small rooms, and over priced us. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. First thing that went wrong was 2 days before checking in i called and asked to check in early. The lady on the phone said yes, that is very possible. She said let me check, and put me on hold....

Was there this past weekend and really enjoyed myself. The room was stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, cutting board, dish towel and more. The only thing you had to have was food and utensils. It has full refrig and 4 burner stove. Room was nice. Had one bed and sofa bed. This was during Spring Break and this was... More
