“Clean and Right on the Beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

This hotel is right on the beach next to Clayton's Bar and Grill (which always has live music). We loved lounging on the chairs provided on the deck that overlooks the ocean. The room was spacious and clean. We had a patio with chairs that overlooked the hotel next to us. We got a Jacuzzi suite and it came in handy to warm us up as the night was rather cool. The swimming pool was under construction, which was fine because the weather did not lend itself for swimming. I would stay here again. The only bad thing was the parking.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room on the first floor, it can be a bit loud.

The proper name should be " doggy hotel". Because there is no fee for pets there are 2-3 pets in a small room at times which leads to excess barking when left in rooms w/o owners. There is no available exercise area so many are allowed to eliminate in front of hotel or where you park your cars which does lead to tracking residue on to ones car floor matts. There are many responsible pet owners who stay there but with that many pets (75 or more during year end holidays) it does create a problem for many hotel residents. LaQuinta needs to change their policy and charge a fee to have multiple pets at the hotels. The furniture in the rooms are badly outdated especialy the soafa beds that sink to the floor when you sit on it. Hot tub and pool na due to contruction.
The staff was all ways very helpfull and friendly.

Room Tip: South side has no view but has sunshine,north side has view but no sunshine.More pets on first floor...

I just wanted to say that I'm really happy with the customer service at La Quinta Inn in South Padre Island because they were all very friendly and helpful. Especially an employee named Vanessa. She went the extra mile to give me the best rates. She was very helpful and friendly as well. I was a happy camper!! Definitely, thinking about having my second vacation in their hotel. Totally recommend it!!

Awesome place for beach location - closest with great access.
Pool and hot tub was being renovated while there - was not notified that this was happening at the time our reservations were being made. Was able to use the Hilton Garden Inn next door - neither was heated.
Great breakfast available - could have had a few more choices for cereal.
Overall a great stay.

Very satisfied with everything. Super clean facility. Friendly staff. Cheaper weekly rate was offered at checkin saving us hundreds. Great free breakfast. Hotel is right on the beach. Pool under construction so we had total access to Hilton's pool and hot tub right outside our balcony. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a great deal and well above average accommodations.

Hotel was at full capacity--Snow Bird Season is on, although we were not part of the pack. Front desk check -in was slow, but everything in the room was in order. Nice little mini-fridge and microwave, coffee maker in room. Rooms and bathroom clean, daily housekeeping service very good. Our "view" was the roof of Clayton's Beach Bar next door, but we didn't pay for an ocean view. ( Clayton's, by the way, rocks late afternoon - early evening with superb entertainment and is a great time if you are so inclined)

Deck, pool and terrace very nice, also a nice touch is the happy-hour free drink daily each guest receives. Good beach access at end of terrace - stairs only - no handicap ramp. Noted here because I was in (temporary) need on travel dates.

Breakfast items very good, large section and availability, friendly staff, but get there early-- seats are limited. ( They did open extra room on request for overflow) Temperature in breakfast seemed warm every day, but maybe because so many people at one time.

My only complaint is that the internet service/connection is unreliable at best, but on a beach get-away who is working?? A bit annoying when trying to keep in touch or look things up online.

Room Tip: All I can say is Room 238 has zero view, BUT it is very close to the pool/beach entrance. ( via elev...

Excellent place to stay at a very reasonable rate. We really liked the staff!!! The rooms were always very clean and the front desk staff always took the time to tell us where the great local restaurants were, where to going shopping and also recommend activities that our kids would enjoy. We could really tell that they were all dedicated to making sure we had a great time!!!
