“Great fun time”
Reviewed September 27, 2010

I was greated by the front desk clerk properly, Chris. He suggested restaurants and night life as well as gave me a important contact phone numbers that i would need while we stayed in Super 8. The pool hours are ok, but i wished that they were a little longer though. The breakfast hours are convinent and filling. The beach is less than a block away and very nice access from where the hotel is at. We plan to go back this weekend for the music festival since the prices are just right for our budget. Thank you very much Josh for the special attention you gave us.

Thank you very much for your nice review. I will speak to Josh about the pool hours he runs a pretty tight ship. Hope you had fun at the music festival this weekend. Be sure to come back for the Sandcastle Days October 15-18. It is amazing what these artists do with sand. Tell your friends about us. Thanks, MK

After reading some of the reviews for this hotel, I was extremely apprehensive about staying here. However, I was pleased when I saw the room. It was clean and open, There was a nice, flat-screen TV. The AC stayed super cold, despite the oppressive heat outside. The room never felt humid or uncomfortable. The decor was a little cheezy, but that is to be expected. I mean, come on...it IS still a Super 8. The only complaint I had concerned the WI-Fi. It worked just fine right after we checked in, but later that night and all day the next day, it simply would not connect. It wasn't really a big deal, since we spent most of the days outside, enjoying the island. I'm sure if we had contacted the office, we could have found a solution. I would definitely go back, especially considering the price! Under $90 a night allowed us to spend out hard earned cash on the fun stuff!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Yes the art work in some of the rooms is very outdated and the pattern on the bedspread is not real beachy but it is new. Thanks for your kind words and we hope to have you back soon. Our rates are much lower now we are in the off season.

I was very surprised when we arrived. The hotel exterior was very breath taking! We stayed in a room with a King Size Comfortable Bed and Kitchenette. The room was very clean and we decided to stay 3 nights instead of 1. I owe it to my husband for making a decision to book the hotel here. I was the skeptical one and very pleasantly surprised.

Thank you very much for your description of our property. Yes the exterior and the lobby especially the staircase is beautiful and rare for this price range. We are upgrading our art in the rooms and recently installed new furniture and like to keep the place looking nice. There are six owners mostly from the Dallas area and we appreciate your business. Hope to meet you sometime.

Staff was great. Room was dingy but what do you expect for a motel on the island. The place was packed but what do you expect in summer in Padre. Thought it was pricey for what you got.

Thanks for taking time to write a review. We replaced our light bulbs with the energy efficient "green" one that do not put out as much light I am guessing that could be why you describe the room as dingy. Yes in the summer it is busy and our prices are higher than in the off season but we are extremely competitive with our rates. Please consider giving us another opportunity to earn your business.

First of all let me say this is a motel not a hotel - the doors open up to the parking lot, not inside the buliding, so you here all sorts of noise and it makes me feel very unsecure. Not to mention even the hotel has their benches chained down to prevent theft. The sheets had stains on them, the comfortor looked kind of old. The paint job on the rooms was not so good. About cleanliness - except for the linens, I thought it was okay - bathroom was clean, I am sure it is hard to keep clean with all of the sand. I was expecting more from the "super" breakfast. It consists of many different forms of bread-waffles, cereal, powdered donuts, bagels, and bread. Some people brought there own blueberries to throw into the waffle batter while it was cooking, which I thought was creative. Also the room to fix your food and eat is really overcrowded, no room to fix anything or room to pull your chair out to sit. Check in and out was fast. I was trying to save a little money staying here, but on our next visit I will spend the extra to stay at a different hotel - it is not bad, it is just you get what you pay for. Almost forgot, a group of people came into the swimming pool with beers and started making out in the hot tub. We also could not connect to the free internet.

Sorry that our property was not a good match for you. It sounds like you would prefer a much more expensive "full service" hotel with a restaurant and full breakfast menu that you could pay for. Yes we are a Motel hence the name Super 8 Motel. It is an exterior corridor property where you can park your car right outside your room. We replace comforters and sheets on a regular basis. The interior of all rooms were repainted the fall of 2008 and are concrete walls and ceilings. We do have hot waffles as well as many other free breakfast items which most of our competitors do not have. Most of our competitors have much smaller breakfast rooms if they have one at all. I own the Super 8 and Travelodge and their price points both properties offer much more amenities than our competition. I hope you come back to the island and stay at one of the two full service hotels on the island.
