“Family Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

My daughters and I stayed here for a weekend. The staff was friendly and our room was great. We got a corner room with a King bed and a balcony. We sat on the balcony and watched beach volleyball in the late afternoon. And listened to the live music after dark. We also watched the sunrise the next morning. The breakfast buffet was good and our waitress was wonderful. We like this hotel because it is right on the beach. We were on the beach early and went in for a break around lunch. Then we went back out later in the afternoon till almost dark. They have outdoor showers to rinse off the sand. Then we went swimming until we got hungry. It wasn't crowded at the hotel or on the beach. We had a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Live Band plays on weekends, quieter rooms toward the street and North side.

This hotel is now dirty and the room was terrible. You could not see out of the windows of room 307. The door had a gap from the lock down to the bottom and you could see down the hall from inside the room. They charged us the summer rate and it was winter. Sadly this hotel is in a beautiful location but the owners simply do not care about the place.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay here.

The wife and I came here for a little weekend getaway. The hotel located very conveniently by the causeway and close to many restaraunts on the island. The hotel itself is nothing special, the staff was friendly and the room was clean. I was not wowed, but I definitely was not disappointed; especially for the price we got it for. I would come back.

We are so happy that you enjoyed yourself here on North Padre Island! Our pools are open year round and one is heated. We also love the local restaurants here on the island. Next time you are here, try our very own restaurant located right inside the hotel.

Thank you,

Christina

Stayed here many times and it does not disappoint. Property has two pools and great beach access. Has an outdoor bar with live music on the weekends. Convenient to both Corpus Christi and Port Aransas. If you are visiting North Padre be sure and eat at Scuttlebutts. It is a local favorite.

In August, I brought my son & grandkids here for 3 days and summer fun! We have stayed here in a standard room before. The location was perfect for attending the Padre Island Surf Camp next door @ the park. The camp was a GREAT experience for my kids. We stayed in a room with the two bunk beds and a queen bed.This was a nice set up for a family. They also had a mini fridge where we could keep our drinks cold. The hotel is dated and a bit worn but not too bad. I did not eat a meal at the hotel, however, the staff and muffins in coffee shop in the lobby were excellent. The pool is also dated but it is on the beach and has a great little bar and there is nice seating all around the pool and bar area with beautiful gulf views. Use the service elevator for luggage as there were no bellmen when I was there and the elevator is always packed. Its overpriced but is the best choice for on the beach that we have found in Corpus/ North padre.

Room Tip: if you have children, pay the extra and get the bunkbeds!

I'll admit I was a little worried about staying here after reading some of the recent reviews. But we (myself, my wife and 2 kids) had a great time here. It is a beach hotel... that sits right on the beach. Because of that... it is weathered and sandy. So just come prepared. Elevators were working. We paid for an Ocean View and got an Ocean View. Note: there are only 20 or so direct ocean facing rooms. We had one of these rooms. The other rooms appear to have a view... but from a side facing view. The breakfast buffet was decent. Fully stocked. Service was decent but a little slow. I think that was likely due to staffing. We did not eat at the hotel other than breakfast - which I would always suggest - go get some local food from a restaurant. The maid service was good. We received towels and the room was clean and made up upon our returns. Maybe HI had been listening to this board and got things straightened out by the time we made our visit - but we had a good experience.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean view... ask for the rooms facing the ocean. There are only 20 or so of these ro...

First remember its on the beach so you may see some sand! The location is good, root felt a bit humid but that's corpus in general just crank up the a/c it'll get better. Place is older but clean. Staff is nice enough but don't go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
