We haven't been to South Padre in years so we booked this hotel based on the good reviews and reasonable price. Beach front, close to restaurants, bars, stores. Clean throughout with modern decor in lobby area. Staff attentive and pleasant despite a busy holiday weekend. Nice clean pool and hottub with poolside bar. Towels available at the pool area. STARBUCKS in the lobby which didn't open till 7AM, but can't really complain about that at a beach hotel. Small store in the lobby sold beach stuff, snacks, wine. Wireless was free and worked well for our needs. Room was clean, minifridge and microwave, hairdryer, small coffeemaker, large flatscreen TV. Bed was comfortable.
Continental breakfast on the 4th floor in a conference room each morning. Waffles, bagels, eggs, cereal, fresh fruit and pretty good coffee.
Family hotel with lots of kids present.
Long wooden walkway to the beach leading off from the pool area. Wheelchair access from the pool, but only steps leading down to the beach. (probably isn't the responsibility of the hotel)
2 elevator banks were rather slow, but stairs were available to navigate the 4 floors if you didn't feel like waiting. Plenty of parking out front.
Beach store and Subway shop located at the end of the driveway/parking lot in a little shopping center. Stripes gas station less than a block away.
Small gym on the first floor with treadmill and eliptical. Dumbells up to 50lbs and universal machine with pulldown, leg press etc. Nice to be able to get some resistance training in while I was there.
