La Quinta Inn & Suites South Padre Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We specifically wanted a hotel with that was beachfront, and a room with an water front view. This hotel fits the bill. Beds are comfy and rooms are very spacious. I especially liked that there were chairs and a sofa. The breakfast was nice and well stocked. I really liked the waffles in the shape of texas...would prefer to be able to make my own, but they seem to prefer to have them pre-made for you. Great pool area and this hotel is on a great part of the beach, seems a little less crowded. We were on the 2nd floor and have no complaints about noise...1st floor might be a little noisy. The rooms do show some age and some of the furniture could probably be replaced due to stains, etc. Overall, i would stay here again and would recommend to others.

Rooms clean and spacious. Nice free breakfast. The girls played in jacuzzi when the weather was cold and windy. Would stay here again. It is away from city hustle and bustle but still walking distance from everything. Even though dogs there walss thick never heard any in room.

We reserved a Jacuzzi Tub room for New Year's. What a great location on the beach. Great hospitality. Good service (except don't put Do Not Disturb sign otherwise the cleaning staff will skip your room that day). Wonderful breakfast with waffles the shape of Texas.

Select a room on higher floors. The main floor is noisy with ceramic tiles and barking dogs.

Room Tip: Select a room on higher floors. The main floor is noisy with ceramic tiles and barking dogs.

We stayed at the La Q over new years- our first time to SPI, and we were very pleased with everything. The employees were friendly and moved us to a higher floor when asked, had a terrific balcony with chairs and table- (get a room on the 3rd or 4th floor overlooking Gulf if you can- PERFECT view!!). We were presented with drink coupons for HH every day we stayed, and the b'fast was actually very good-- REAL, fresh eggs, 3 kinds of scrambled, and fresh refried beans & tortillas to make b'fast tacos! The room decor was nice, very comfortable sofa and desk in room. You really can't beat the location- it's right ON the beach, with a great area with comfy chairs to look out over the beach. It's even closer to the water than the next door property, Hilton Garden Inn. Good value for the money, we would definitely stay here again. They have a small workout room too, which comes in handy after gorging on all that delish fresh local seafood! Beds were comfy, rooms were quiet. (this was not Spring break, so can't speak to that time of year).

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor, overlooking the Gulf. If the floor is lower, you're looking out over the pool...

Excellent hotel. I will stay again when I return to SPI. It had a great staff, a very clean and comfortable room. I had an exceptional view. The breakfast was very nice with many options to choose from. I will however bring my own coffee. It was my only complaint.

The exterior of this hotel and location are very nice, however, once inside the hotel feels very dank and old ... especially the hallways on floors 2-4. The hotel and room were clean and roomy, but the balcony left a lot to be desired. If your room faces north, you will overlook the Hilton's pool and patio area which does get very noisey ... If your room faces south, you will overlook a construction site. The overall size of the balcony was terrible, barely big enough for two people and awefully narrow. We booked this hotel at a very low rate and i have to say if i would've paid full price (over $100 a night) I would have been furious. It wasn't a horrible experience but we will not stay here again just due to being able to get better ammenities for the same price.

We were happy with it at first and the kids loved it from the look but then the little things started to add up. First we got cut up in the hot tub. The tiles are falling off and the cement around it is not gentle but rough. Then we found out that you can hear the shower from the next room in your room. We were ready for bed when this loud noise came pouring in. Lastly we found a dog treat under the bed this scared us as we wondered how the cleaning staff missed it...we did not have a dog. The good things: comfy beds and pillows, great access to beach, good breakfast, and friendly staff. Stay at a hotel on the beach in South Padre is all I can leave you with.

Hello Brydie, we'd like to thank you for choosing La Qunita South Padre island and for taking the time to share your experience. We are truly sorry about the hot tub being rough and the noisy showers you experienced. We have recently renovated the hot tubs and evaluated the showers in the rooms to solve these problems. We understand this situation intolerable and we will do our best to not let it happen again. We hope to see you again soon.
