“Week in South Padre”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

The hotel is clean and the staff is very attentive to the needs of the guests. The hotel is in the midst of updating that is needed. The price was higher than what I would have expected for a hotel in this condition. They are painting and updating the rooms with new furnishings. Workers were doing the exterior surfaces and internal plumbing. Would stay here again after modernization was done on this property. Pool areas were nice and the location on the beach was nice as well.

The hotel was nice and the room was nice, but I felt the value was lacking. I think a hotel like this should have had a lower room rate than what it was. I went in Mid April, so it was not the peak season. I felt that the rates should have been better in this time frame.

The pool was nice, but the hot tub could use some re-vamping.

I checked into the resort and the front desk staff was very welcoming. When I got to my room , everything was in working order. The view I had was great over looking the pool and the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and welcoming.

The staff is friendly and welcoming, but the rooms and hotel are tired and the grounds need updating. The service at the outside bar was slow with bar staff with their heads down. No table service at poolside.

The quality of the rooms were not up to par given the nightly room rate I paid. The front desk staff were nice, but they could've provided better customer service. They seemed "used" to the guests complaints about the hotel. The valet staff was friendly and courteous.

We had reservations at the Pearl for four nights and switched to the Hilton Garden Inn after the first night. Room at Pearl was small and dreary and looked like it hadn't really been cleaned up after spring break. Tile floors were very damp. Good staff but they can't rebuild the hotel from scratch. Hilton was also significantly less expensive but much nicer.

Not as bad as people say. I enjoyed my stay very much, enough to go back. My room had a great pool and beach view for the price I paid. The pool was great, the bartenders were awesome and this grill had decent food. The hotel has corrosion like any other hotel on the beach and it's probably a little older. Its NOT A Big deal. STaff was great. Parking was always available. Pool was very clean. Bed was comfortable. And to s it up I would stay there again.
