The cleaning staff was excellent. If we had a problem it was immediately taken care of. However, there was times when we feel the room could have been cleaned better. We did get what we paid for in other words it wasn't a five star establishment. The location was adequate. It was close to a University not a crime ridden... More

This place is old and although some efforts have been made to renovate and replace some things, its age shows everywhere. But the bed was comfortable enough to get a good night's sleep and the staff is pretty friendly. Our unit did not have a working smoke detector (battery was very old) and when we notified the manager, nothing was... More

We spent a week in Feb 2016. The place is showing its age. We had first floor unit. Our unit did not have window locks on the street side which would allow one to slide open the window from the outside. It did have an iron grate on inside of window, but it is easily pushed open. There was a... More

My wife and I are experienced travelers and are well aware of booking condo's through RCI. The Fort Brown condo's in Brownsville should not even be an option. After checking in and carrying our suitcases upstairs, we stepped into a room that was last furnished sometime in the sixties. Very small, cramped and outdated. After much discussion we both decided... More

We didn't experience any problems with our stay. Everything worked ok and condo was pretty comfortable. Living room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom were spacious. 2nd bedroom had twin beds with no tv. Only one bathroom even though we had 2 bedrooms. Bathroom vanity was in the open in the hall way and not in a closed off space. Property... More

We were looking for a base for a week to try out the Texas coastline. We knew the place was dated from the reviews. When we arrived we found an old dilapidated place and the pool was locked and the office was closed. It looked nothing like the photos. We then decided to head to town to book a hotel.... More

An impromptu vacation decision brought us to Ft, Brown in Brownsville, TX. The extremely reasonable price (from our timeshare) was the deal breaker. The accommodations were better than expected. The location of Ft, Brown was excellent. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The Laundry room was a reminder of the good ol' days when we could do a couple... More

It met our needs for a trip to S. Padre area. It served as an adequate home base for our trips to the beach and other local places. Fort Brown is secluded and is within walking distance to a Border crossing and is a 20-30 minute drive to the Island and area beaches. The kitchen was well-stocked; the furniture is... More

We decided we wanted to get near Padre Island for a week to relax and enjoy our anniversary. We arrived at Fort Brown and it was a little difficult to find because it is hidden off a back street of some sort. Once we found it we made our way to the manager's office. There were 2 people working and... More
