“STILL A GREAT PLACE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

This Best Western still is a great place. It is being run very well, so the rooms are clean, check-in is fast, reasonable price, breakfast is one of the best with great selection and plenty of space for there guests to sit. The pool area also looks great but is not heated so hard to use in winter. Would also be nice to have a hot tub.

From the minute I checked in with the very nice lobby person, until I left a week later, I enjoyed my stay here. Everything was first class and I would not hesitate to stay here again. My conference was on the mainland and I was concerned about making meetings while relying on the ferry, but there were no problems at all. Except for one time, I was able to drive right on and off with no delays. In 14 trips that was great.
Some things I liked best were the great breakfast room that included a good variety of food including superior coffee, yogurt, and fresh fruit and hard boiled eggs. There were also ample supplies of biscuits and gravy, pancakes, and waffles. They didn't miss a trick.
There were public computers as well as great internet access in the rooms. There was even a book exchange area with some great books in it.
I walked to the beach in just a few minutes. What could be better than that.
The only negative was that the TV was old and didn't get some channels very well. Time to upgrade to flat-screens.

Room Tip: If you are not going to use the pool then it would be quieter away from it.

We really enjoyed our stay at BW Ocean Villa, the room looked new and was very clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, we slept better here than we usually do on the road. We never tried the free breakfast, there were just too many options in Port A. The rates were half what is posted on tripadvisor. Definitely recommend this one.

Room Tip: Apparently king beds are all upstairs, pack lighter than we did to avoid carrying so much stuff up.

We stayed two night at this hotel while on a short vacation. The room was pleasant
and nicely furnished. Everything was very clean. The breakfast room was bright and
there was a nice choice of food items. The people at the front desk were helpful and
friendly. When we had a small problem with the wi-fi, they fixed it right away. This
appears to be one of the nicest places to stay in Port Aransas.

I took the opportunity to stay here one night during a business trip to Corpus Christi. The hotel was offering a great off-season rate, couldn't beat it. The hotel is a few blocks from the beach - easy enough to walk there. Not the typical Port Aransas condo or beach house experience, but nice for someone staying for one night or wanting a more hotel-type lodging. The room was basic and clean. The bathtub finish was cracked and the furniture had some definite wear and tear, but I'd expect that anywhere at a Spring Break location. Good breakfast selection and quality. Staff was friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again, especially for a short trip.

When my husband & I travel we look for the "AARP" hotels/motels to save a few penneys. Most of the time the hotels/motels are so-so. This Best Western was great. Only complaint was that they did not have a grab bar around the tub area in our room. I'm a bath person so I had to be very carefull about getting in & out. I would stay again.
