Some people will love this hotel. We might be a bit too hotel "snobby" for it. We do typically like Starwoods (Sheratons, Westin, etc) and this place isn't remotely close to one of those. I found the breakfast inedible (no fresh fruit, or fresh baked items... just hot waffles and some scrambled eggs with "stuff" in it). I also found the hotel to be less than clean.
However, is there a good value to be found here? Sure. The pool area is pretty nice and warm (although broken - the hot tub is crumbling). The views from the north facing rooms are very nice (avoid south facing rooms if you can). The beach area (minus the giant sewer pipe) is decent but not as nice as the southern South Padre beaches in my opinion. The "free" drinks include beer and wine from a box. For a modest upcharge you can get better stuff.
Again - cleanliness is in the eye of the beholder, but the hallways and rooms felt like they could use a bit more TLC. The first floor area is newly tiled and looked nice. The stairways were especially dirty.
Staff is nice and accommodating. The next door Hilton Garden Inn (owned by same people) is much nicer (and much more expensive).
The hotel allows dogs, and you will see them everywhere. Our favorite hotel (by far) at South Padre is The Pearl.
