Plantation Suites
Ranked #5 of 20 Hotels in Port Aransas
Reviewed August 24, 2012

I have stayed here every summer for the past four years for a simple reason: this place can't be beat. Each trip there are 8-12 of us and for the price this place is amazing. Not only are the rooms large, but they can sleep 6 (2 queens + pull out sofa) easily. Along with that the staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is someone at the front desk 24 hours a day. The location is minutes away from the beach and the many great restaurants in Port Aransas. Overall, Plantation Suites provides the best value we could find anywhere in Port Aransas.

Our stay was excellent, the accommodations were spacious, clean and very welcoming. The hotel staff were extremely friendly, and the location was less than a mile from the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Two thumbs up.

My family and I stay here everytime we go to Port Aransas. Rooms are always clean. From the lady taking reservations or checking you in, to the manager they are all so friendly. My kids love the pool and making waffles on the waffle machine at the free breakfast. Worry free vacation!

Thank you for being a "returning guest" with us at Plantation Suites & Conference Center. We continue to look for new and interesting ammenities to keep our guest coming back year to year. The Waffle Maker has definitely been a nice addition and big success in our Breakfast room. Our staff does a terrific job maintaining our pool so it is enjoyable year round. Hope to see you again soon.

First time at writing a review, but I felt it was important. Their website shows spacious beautiful clean rooms with large front porches adorned with rocking chairs. Our room was not ready by check in(which is 4pm), dirt in all the corners, food particles in the microwave. Stains on our sheets(gross), when I went to grab a towel after showering it had gum stuck to it, not to mention dark stains all over it( yuk). The A/C unit was extremely noisy and worked so so. On top of that the front desk clerks had major attitudes, as if we were putting them out. I try not to set my expectations to high, but this was pretty bad, especially for the price.

What did I love about this room? bare floors, which are always cleaner than carpets which don't get shampooed often enough. ac worked great. close to everything. nice decorations. very nice office staff, and 2 free drinks from cooler upon checkin. Easy access to lawn for doggy. The bed was definitely comfy and clean, and I slept well - perhaps it was so quiet because it was a Monday night, but it was quiet which I really appreciate.
What didn't I love? For the price, I hoped for a bit more lux. Everything is fairly standard, though I will say that the pool and hot tub are beautiful. The breakfast is standard, which these days usually includes waffles, eggs, and they have standard tv channels, wifi etc. There was also a strong smell that never dissipated, like a combination of lysol and mold, which sorta reminded me of the smell of desert sage but not quite. I would possibly stay here again, but I think I'd prefer finding someplace that is as hi priced but makes you feel wealthy with more lux amenities.

We are glad you choose Plantation Suites & Conference Center for your stay in Port Aransas. We recently have updated the property so all rooms have tile, which is much easier to maintain in coastal conditions, and are glad you appreciated the convenience of this. Our "complimentary drink" offer is our way of saying "thank you" and keeping your cool and refreshed during our summer months. We pride ourselves, and strive to make your stay the best it can be, and do hope you will come see us again.
