Perhaps I am just spoiled. Unfortunately, I am travelling much these days. I spend of my nights in Marriott properties, not the high end stuff, but Fairfield Inns, Courtyards and Residence Inns. No matter, they are always clean with very good professional service. This hotel is an example of why I shy away from Holiday Inn properties; they are hit... More

This hotel smelled like mildew throughout the entire place. Seemed clean enough until you looked closely at the bathroom. Breakfast was horrible. There were very few items to choose from and the milk was sour.

Great nice location and clean. Friendly staff. Great good. Right off the beach front for quick access. Keeps guests up to date with local activities. We will defiantly come back and stay here again. My kids enjoyed the activities around this hotel.

We have stayed at many different hotels on South Padre Island over the past 30 years, but this one took the first prize! The staff was courteous, polite, and attentive. The included breakfast was not only accessible and not overcrowded (unlike a few if the other hotels we have tried), but they served guests that showed up a bit later... More

The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Great breakfast served every morning for free. The beach was gorgeous and clean.

The hotel is well located for the beach; you do need to drive for restaurants. The beach is located 5 min walking. The rooms were clean but the hotel accepts large groups of teenagers, in my case, there were slammed doors all night, the next day the group left and we requested a room change to the upper floor, because...

Took an impromptu family trip to Padre. I'd never been to the island before, so had no expectations. From what I was told, hotel was on more quiet-family part of island. It's summer, so no spring break debauchery either way, but we were a hike from the bar club scene. Positive in that it was quiet, negative in that we... More

Rooms were clean, staff friendly, breakfast is good as that can be. Elevators are not only slow but sound like they are broken. Air conditioning hard to control. Beds are too soft and gave us back aches. Pool was good but needed to be cleaned. Could be better, could be worse.
