“Large Room, but not that great.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Stayed 2 nights at a great rate, but the room was just okay.
++Positives: Very large room with 2 beds, had a very nice refrigerator, smallish flat screen TV with HBO and a microwave. The lobby was clean and nice, and they had a nice area for borrowing books and games. It was chilly, so I didn't check out the pool.
--Negatives: Found a huge cockroach in the bathtub and the faucet where one turns on the shower was coming out of the wall and it was treacherous to turn it on without breaking it! The housekeeping staff never replaced bags for the ice container, nor gave up anymore shampoos or soaps when cleaning the room.
The breakfast was terrible. 2 cinnamon rolls for about a dozen people, absolutely no yogurt in the display; watered down juices and terrible coffee. The hotel staff in the morning was less than helpful at the breakfast area. I asked if they could put some yogurt in the yogurt display area for choice and they said they get around to it, when another staff member showed up! Rude and I never did get yogurt and of course, by this time the cinnamon rolls were gone and not replaced.

Room Tip: Some rooms are remodeled with cute bars in the room...ours didn't have this...ask to see the roo...

Sorry that you did not have a great stay. If you look at our competitors in our price range we have a better breakfast than they do. Guessing most people that want a restuarant style breakfast would take the money they save by staying with us and use that money at a restuarant of thier choice. Please check out our competition many of whom do not have a breakfast room if they do it is much smaller than ours and they offer less than we do. Please contact the front desk as soon as you notice anything wrong with your room.

My experience at this hotel was great. The receptionist was very helpful. Don't remember the young gentleman's name. I believe it was Eric but anyways. The options for breakfast were better than other hotels that serve continental breakfast.

Our room was very clean and ac worked great. This is the 3 rd time I have stayed at Super 8 at South Padre island, Texas. Our front desk clerk Eric was great, very friendly and he sure has awesome customer service skills. He made sure out stay was comfortable. He did not hesitate like at other hotels to give us extra towels. I sure will continue to stay at Super 8 hotel. Even the owner is always at the front desk to make sure guests have a great stay. Once again my regards and continue the great service to front desk Eric!!!
