I made reservation at the Sheraton in South Padre Island in December for our trip in April, because it had the highest star rating and I had good experiences with Sheraton hotels in the past, not because of it's Tripadvisor rating. When the hotel changed its name to Pearl just before our trip, and after reading several really bad reviews, we were worried.
The hotel is not horrible. We stayed in a two bedroom condo. The rooms could be a little cleaner and more modern (the towel rack was rusty, deck furniture was moldy, and the rug on the tile floor was stained.) They ran out of beach towels, and one of the three elevator was not functioning on one day which resulted in a crowd at the lobby. However, the location was great, with access to a relatively uncrowded beach and a nice pool. The beds and linen were also comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly. There were three new flat screen TV's as well.More
