“Great getaway, great value.”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Booked online and got a great price. Hotel is showing a little wear but all and all a pleasant stay. Excellent breakfast, full selection, plenty of seating. Hallways were musty, and somewhat stale smelling. Rooms were clean, bathroom showing a little wear but nothing major. Slow sink drain biggest issue. Had a great view of the ocean on the north side. All the staff and breakfast waitress extremely helpful. Had my dog along and she did very well.

We chose to stay in an ocean view room. We loved the balcony and used it frequently. We could see the fireworks from our room as well as the wind surfers, pelicans, etc. We enjoyed the relaxful, friendly atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly, elevator was small and slow, breakfast was very good and a nice variety, construction of the lobby was noisy when you were down there.
In your room you couldn't hear anything from outside (Clayton's, swimmers, or the many people walking and talking). However, you could hear the people above you with the kids running and jumping on the floors, furniture, yelling, etc. That we didn't appreciate. We love this hotel and would stay there again when we go to the island.

Room Tip: third or fourth floor, middle room...has a wonderful balcony and you can see everything

Dear guest,

We truly appreciate you taking the time to write a thorough review about our La Quinta Inn & Suites South Padre location. Our staff is happy to hear your stay here with us was enjoyable. We’re glad you were able to enjoy your balcony view. We are really sorry about the commotion going on in the room above, but since we try our hardest to accommodate all of our guests, including families, the noise is out of our control. We hope you consider staying with us again for another adventure.

Thank you,
Aaron R.

very reasonable price for location. rooms were clean. the hotel is renovating the lobby so some construction noise and traffic is expected. On the downside, the elevators are small and very slow, I recommend you take the stairs. The pool is small but if the beach water is welcoming then it doesn't matter. breakfast was free and actually way better than what i remember from my previous stay. i would recommend for the price.

Reservations made online--very easy--check. Able to find the hotel without difficulty--check. Staff incredibly friendly/helpful--check. Beachfront--check. Allowed pets--check. Did not charge an additional pet fee??? They did not (impressive). Incredibly cheap rates for beachfront and the rooms were very clean. Perhaps not the most current, up-to-date furnishings, but everything functioned as needed, the rooms were large, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Fast Wi-Fi, nice sized TV in the room (if that's your thing). The even provided a complimentary little breakfast, tasty but simple. If you're looking for luxury, this might not be the place for you, but if you just need a little getaway, it is perfect. There is a large deck in the back of the hotel, right on the beach, with lawn chairs. There's even a small (again, very clean) pool out back as well. There was quite a bit of construction going on during this stay, but nothing that disrupted sleep. We did see several jellyfish on shore, just keep an eye out while you're walking.

I'm not much on reviews so bear w/me. We honeymooned on SPI 10/20/13-10/27//13 to enjoy a true kiteboarding experience. We arrived @ the hotel around noon and were not able to check-in until 3:30, understandable. We were told we'd have a balcony on an upper floor by the "call center." When we arrived the lobby was under construction and they had us blocked for a 1st floor room. We were quite disappointed and spent our waiting time checking out the competition. We agreed on the Holiday Inn and went back to La Quinta to appeal to management to excuse us from any obligation on our secured reservation, being that we weren't very happy with the accommodations and disarray of the main lobby. Assistant manager, Arturo Kalifa, showed us several rooms and was very motivated to keep us on the property, but also was willing to comply with our final decision. We agreed to stay in the room originally intended for us. It was perfect! The room was spacious, clean & quiet. Which was a concern since it was on the 1st flr. The 1st floor was tiled and I believe it was mopped at least 10 times a day! The staff were all cordial & friendly and the hotels proximity to the areas of the island that interested us was ideal. The free breakfasts were very good, but we did try other venues (pumpkin pancakes:-))
They seem to be spending money to make this hotel a first class destination. Half-way into our stay we noticed new commercial washers & dryers be delivered, along w/ an almost completed lobby!
Thank you to Arturo & the entire staff of La Quinta for making our honeymoon so very memorable. We enjoyed our stay so much we are planning our return trip for next Oct. , not to mention the beauty of the Island and the consistent winds at the "outlaw flats!"
sincerely, Carl & Maryanne
