“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed March 12, 2006

My wife and two kids recently stayed in La Quinta, South Padre Island and we enjoyed it so much. We got a standard room and the beach could be seen from our room. I'm not sure but I believe all rooms have a view. They have some rooms with a front view to the beach but those were booked.

They have a reception at 5:00p.m everyday which is a nice touch. (Nachos, Popcorn, Soda, Wine and Beer)

We stayed in late February, therefore, the hotel was not crowded and the pool was of good size based on the amount of people there. They have a gazeebo if you want to see the beach and not get a sun tan or a very nice area if you prefer to get that tan.

They offer high speed internet at no charge if you take your laptop and they have an area with 3 or 4 computers if you want to use the internet at no additional charge. The continental breakfast is also good.

This hotel is situated right on the beach front. The area assigned to the hotel is not very large but this does not limit you to go in either direction if you want more room. Walking distance 1 minute.

If you enjoy fishing on the surf just wake up early get your fishing gear and you are right there. The island offers deep sea and bay fishing at various rates. I fish there frequently and have had very good results.

We are from the area and have stayed at other hotels in SPI. I would stay at this hotel at anytime.

Read reviews on this website prior to booking. Checked in on Tuesday, Feb. 28th for a 3 night stay. Got the exact room that we booked on-line and was pleasantly surprised that we had a view of the beach off a small balcony (not a "beach view" room). Room was large with 12 ft. ceilings, microwave, fridge and a small sitting area. Pool was clean as was entire hotel. 3 Computers downstairs for use. Great location (at end of island) if you like a little peace & quiet. Over all - great hotel, great stay. Would definately stay again and intend to. On-line booking at $49 per night for 2 queen room.

Brand new and attractively decorated, sparkling clean, comfy beds, nice pool and hot tub. It is right on the beach, but the surf was too wild for swimming the days we were there. You can go shell-hunting though. The continental breakfast was good, but the dining room was very crowded, and the staff started putting everything away 15 minutes before the breakfast hours were over.

After spending three nights at the La Quinta, Feb 22 - Feb 25, I would certainly do it again. The tile floors shined even in the high traffic areas. Parking was free and easy and three computers were available free of charge. As mentioned in other posts, the breakfasts and social hours were overtaken by the snowbirds. We learned to play their game and get to the events early....worked every time. We ate at Sea Ranch, Louie's and The Shrimp Haus, all very good. The weather did not cooperate but we had a good time and will return.

We just got back from staying here for three nights and thought this was a very nice clean hotel. The pool is rather small as is the jacuzzi but both will do. The hotel seemed to be full of seniors who really enjoyed the free breakfast and the two free beers/wine at happy hour. Next to impossible to get to sit and eat a continental breakfast if you come down around 8 A.M. I guess the early risers just liked to sit around and talk after breakfast so we carried ours back to our room every day. Same thing at happy hour. We didn't even bother going back to the happy hour party after the first day, just found it more enjoyable going out to see the sunset and relax with a drink elsewhere.Easy access to beach and quiet areas as this hotel is the last place on the island and a few miles down from most of the lively places.

Stayed during December, considered off season and it was somewhat cool for the first few days. I have to say what a nice place. Very clean from the moment you drive in the parking lot. The entry and check in was also very neat and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were very nice, more than I expected. Wireless internet in the room free. Computers downstairs if you didnt bring a laptop, very nice. Cool veiw of the ocean, I doubt there is a bad room in the place. Nice pool area on the ocean side. This hotel is right on the beach. We stayed 4 days and were given a rate of $48.00/day, what a deal. First Class place!
