The location of the hotel is great. The pool is also really nice.
It was always VERY humid inside the hotel, even on the upper floors (we stayed on 10th). We cranked our A/C down to 60 and it never really got cool in the room. It was up near 100' outside though. The cleaning crew took our dirty towels one day and did not replace them. They also left us with no toilet paper. We had to call down to the front desk and wait for them to bring us some before we could shower or use the restroom.
On a good note, everyone was very friendly. Pretty much everyone we encountered inside and out of the hotel were friendly.
Don't expect too much in the quality of food on South Padre Island. However, I would recommend CapNRoys (doesn't look like much from the outside, but VERY good) and even better than that was Gabrielle's Italian. You MUST try the homemade macaroni and cheese. Delicious! We went back two nights in a row for that. Other than those two restaurants, everything was just okay and very pricey.More
