“Great value and service”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Found this place during Spring Break. Very convenient, incredibly good service. Rooms are basic and clean. They are comfortable. I have never experienced this level of service in such a value priced property. Highly recommend.

Very nice, helpful office staff. They called to make sure we were keeping our reservation over spring break and then kept it late since we were driving in. They gave us great restaurants to try out and kept the place clean and not too loud! The breakfast is what you expect for free. Waffles in 3 flavors made fresh in a Texas shaped iron, a couple of cereals, pastries and breads. No protein options...but, that is what I expected. The room had 2 comfortable double beds and a mini fridge and microwave. There is no carpeting on the floors which likely keeps it from getting too stinky from everyones sandy wet selves! The rates are very competitive and the place is good to go. There is a small, heated pool on property and you have to walk about 1/2 mile to have beach access.

Wonderful staff. Patsy is wonderful to talk with and a great help. The continental breakfast is great. They made cool Texas shaped waffles and everything was clean and organized. They have ping pong, pool, and a classic pinball machine available. We had a blast. They had a competitive room rate and I even got to use my Triple A discount. Location is great! In middle of beach access, and Mustang Park. Close by shopping, restaurants, and family fun. This is one of the best places I've stayed. Must come again!

Very nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms...Wish the breakfast would have included more sugar free options, but it was a great value! Comfortable beds, large bathroom, microwave and small refrigerator, fabulous....

Newly remodeled, clean, pet friendly. Spent this past weekend. Had reserved a room but upgraded to a suite for just a little more money. Gave us a lot of room, big bathroom with double sinks, kitchen with full fridge. Great value! Super clean!
Had a nice area for taking your pet with bags provided. My dog kept getting sand spurs in the grass. Don't know if others had that problem. Other than that, plan to return.
Pool was cute but too cold for me. Ice and vending was convenient. Complimentary breakfast with bagels, danishes, fruit, waffles. Cute place. Nothing fancy but a great value for the money. Emily at the front desk was very helpful when booking and when checking in.
Beds were comfortable. Firm but fine. Had a little trouble sleeping one night due to noise from neighbors coming in and honking horns (hoping it was to lock cars) but not sure. Then standing outside talking loudly. But know that can happen most anywhere. One day I'll remember to take ear plugs.
