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 Very small, cramped and outdated.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

My husband and I were in Las Vegas in November of 2013. While there like so many others we decided to do one of those TimeShare things to get tickets to shows and "Spending money for gambling". We own a timeshare at the Polo Club, and Geo is currently doing this in their building. We purchased the $199.00 one told... 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
