Seaside Motel and Condominiums

Reviewed May 28, 2008

I saw the motel advertised on the Port Aransas Tourist and Visitors Bureau website. I saw the pictures but wasn't sure if this would be a nice place to stay. I took a chance and booked a room for our family getaway during the Memorial holiday. The staff was friendly, and the room was very clean and the air conditioning was great!! I was very happy I took a chance. We like it so much that we are already planning another getaway for the month of June, August and September. We will be coming back!!!

Our family has been staying at the Seaside for the last 5 years and we have always had a great stay !! It's right on the beach, economically priced, swimming pool, bbq area and great sun deck over looking the ocean. It's certainly not The Hilton, but we have no complaints and the price is right for us. The condos on the 2nd/3rd floor have kitchens and that makes it great too because you can cook family meals. Alot of the units have been remodeled and updated. We would recommend the Seaside for the budget oriented family who wants to stay RIGHT ON THE BEACH. We'll certainly be back !!!!!!!!

I wish somebody had told me: Run, run, run from the Seaside Motel! Seedy, filthy, depressing, and disgusting! My husband and I and our two small children stayed at the Seaside Motel for a week in June 2007. We found a privately owned unit listed under "condos" on the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce website. The property manager said the unit was very nice and clean- the nicest at the Seaside Motel. And it may have been, 15 years ago! Photos of the condo were very outdated, and misleading. The first thing we noticed was how filthy the unit was. The floors had obviously not been cleaned between stays (there were crayons, coins, sand, pet hair, etc...), there was peeling wallpaper and mildew, the AC units leaked, it had not been restocked with cleaning or paper supplies, and the dishwasher was full of dirty dishes, to name just a few of the shocking disappointments... The motel pool was cloudy and green, the furnishings were all broken, and the staff was always hanging out and cooking in the tiny barbecue area. The laundry facilities were old and rusty. We had a group of 20 or so teenagers sharing the unit above us, who partied all day and night. I cannot tell you how horrible this place is! It is as if the owners of the property are just sitting on it until they sell. And it will clearly be torn down! (I should mention that a staff member told me they are under new management, which may explain past positive reviews.) This is a great beachfront location, but you'd do much better if you stayed next door at the Sandcastle (with small children) or at the Port A Beach Lodge, if you have teens, are traveling solo or as a couple. We will stay at Port A Beach Lodge next summer, which is where we ended up hanging out most of the week, and loved it!
