“Port A Girls Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

We took a girls trip for Mother's Day. We enjoy this hotel and I have been here several times. It has friendly staff and a very pleasant atmosphere. The other guest always seem friendly and happy. Nice chairs outside the rooms to sit outside and chat. Thankfully, no mosquitos out on this trip. The rooms were clean and AC worked great! Love that the floors in the room are tiled. They have outdoor showers to clean up after beach trip and hoses by the fish shack so I could clean sand off our beach chairs, coolers, etc. We'll be back.

We recently stayed here for a weekend & it was very pleasant. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location is great, close to restaurants & quick drive to the beach. All in all a nice experience.

This hotel is very clean and comfy! The heated pool and hot tub are very clean and the picnic table area is a very nice area for the kids to play and for adults to BBQ. The location is just perfect for beach access and driving to shops and restaurants. Perfect place for me and my family! Well defiantly be back next year!

Have been there the last 2 years for a Mothers Day getaway. Loved it - the pool/hot tub is very nice and relaxing, wonderful friendly staff, nice area to eat outdoors, play horseshoes or fly a kite, great free breakfast. Location has easy access to restaurants, shopping and beach. Will definitely go back.

Hi my name is Coco Treviño and i live in San Antonio Tx. We went to Port A without a reservation this past April for the annual Sand Fest and we took our 4 doggies! Ofcourse once there ,we were tired and attempted to find a place to stay. Every where i called people would charge me $350 a night , plus $50 fee per pet , AND I HAD A LIMIT OF 2Pets per room. One Lady even suggested renting 2 rooms to accommodate 2 pets for room. So tired and feeling bummed out went to the last rental place which happened to be right across PLANTATIONS SUITES! They were booked but suggested we go ask PLANTATION SUITES since they are pet friendly! AND SO WE DID! David my fiancé went in and said...first thing..i need a room . The friendly staff said We got it! Then David said ..but I have to tell you.. We have " four doggies" ... He said : Sir we have a limit of three..and David said he made a sad face...so the desk clerk said...but will make an exception this time and winked ;D ...WELCOME TO PLANTATION SUITES AND WELCOME TO PORT A!!!!! And this story does not end there , we paid half of what everyone was charging FOR 2 nights and included a one time fee of $35 for All Pets...yes I said it right ...$35 dollar PET FEE. THAT'S IT!! And they gave us a Super clean room with kitchenette, cofee machine , flat screen Tv, ohh and yes... A short walk to d beach!! Wait...the story does not end there!! On Sunday night we decide to return to S.A. Late in pm to be ready for work on Monday so.... David turns in his keys very gratefully and this time a lady clerk says... You guys are leaving? But you are booked till tomorrow morning..David says...yeah but we rather go back now ..sleep good and go to work...And guess what she said??..in that case sir ..we will refund one night back to you...just come again!!!!!! SO YES..PLANTATION SUITES YOU ARE OUR BEST FRIEND!! GOOD PEOPLE STILL EXIST IN THIS WORLD!! PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THIS THINGS...IT'S CALLED GOING THAT EXTRA MILE FOR YOUR COSTUMERS!!! So yes See ya very soon!!! You guys just won a costumer for life!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!!Thanks Again!! Coco Treviño!!!

Hello Ms Trevino, we most definitely appreciate you taking the time to write such a stellar review about our property. Yes, we are pet friendly, and Yes, we love pets here! So we understand how important it is to be able to travel with our "furry friends". We are so glad we could accommodate you and your "family" on such a busy, yet wonderful "Sand Fest" weekend.
We hope next year you will book again with us for the truly awesome event down here in Port Aransas.

Been staying there for over 10 years now and if you're a fisherman, you'll love their screened in fish cleaning station out back. We do!

So if you need to get away for some R&R "therapy", you'd better check out Plantation Suites for their:
Sleep "therapy" (saw them putting in new mattresses in all the rooms last month);
Breakfast "therapy" (a good, full hot breakfast with extra options); and,
my favorite, Hot tub "therapy" (and I mean HOT! My compliments to the pool maintenance guy)

Thanks guys for all you do keeping such high standards.

I recently stayed at the Plantation Suites for corporate meetings. The hotel was great. The meeting space was a good size for our group, and had everything we needed. The staff was always warm and cheerful, and had a smile and a kind attitude toward everyone. In the evenings, the beach was a short and pleasant 3 block walk or so. The breakfast in the morning was good, with a hot item rotated daily so there was some variety. I found the rooms to be comfortable, and slept really well in their beds. I would absolutely return, and recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: The Palm Suite is great for couples. Huge king size bed and lots of room!
