My wife, 85-year-old mother and I will be traveling to South Padre Island for our first time the end of November. As you are locals are there any restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day and how busy is the island over that holiday weekend? Also we are looking for a place to stay that has either 2 bedrooms or a separate bedroom and fold out sofa bed with an ocean view. (Ma doesn’t get around like she use to and can’t really walk the beach anymore but wants to see and hear the surf) The Pearl, formerly the Sheraton and the Padre South Hotel look like they meet our budget and criteria but have really mixed reviews on Tripadvisor. We would greatly appreciate any input you could give us on these properties or any suggestions you may have on where to stay or places to eat.
