We have been to South Padre Island (SPI) several times and previously stayed 'at the beach' but not during their 'high' summer season. This time, we decided to stay in Harlingen, near the highway, since we'd have to rent a car anyway to get to SPI from the airport. We traveled with a 2, 4 and 8 year old. The hotel was very clean, had a nice heated pool and was close to restaurants we enjoyed. There were NO pool towels by the pool and one had to ask the front desk for these.
The breakfast was nice and the kids enjoyed sitting in the breakfast room sometimes watching TV for a few minutes. We would stay here again but I'd be careful to review my bill before checkout and make sure I signed the charges-- they put a 'hold' on the nearly 300 dollar hotel bill 2x on my card -- and then when I called the hotel, they told me that I'd have to 'dispute' the charge with my bank -- instead of their just simply 'taking care of it' by rescinding one of the charges or holds. I was very disappointed to have such an incompetent response from their billing staff. It eventually turned out it did not actually 'bill' 2x , but that may have been just blind luck for me instead of competence on the hotel's part.
