I travel a lot for work, and stay at quite a few "cheap" hotels. This had to be the dirtiest that I've ever stayed at. Everything was covered in grime. I was exhausted by the time I made it to the room, and the sheets appeared to be clean, so I didn't leave, otherwise I would've tried to get a...

After staying a few ABVI before that were good I thought this place would be great for a lil mini vacation with my girlfriend. Now the place does look a lil shady I remember seeing needles the parking lot but I felt no danger being there. The hallways were very dark and smelled....kinda fishy as in it literally smelled like...

My husband and I needed a relaxing break and this was a great spot - close to the beaches and downtown but away from too many tourists. It's right on the water and sunsets are beautiful. The property's old but the rooms are clean and comfortable and have been recently renovated. It's a valuable bargain.

My wife and I visit the TX coast often and stayed here because of the location right on the water away from the touristy areas. While the location is good, the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. When we arrived. we were greeted by a man with no shoes looking disheveled. After we checked in and got to the...

We were at a Cook-off in Taft so we needed something close by. Outside looked very nice. The hallway to the room was dirty, the paint on the walls were peeling just very unkept. Inside was even worst. The door needed to be lifted up to be able to lock. It was musky smelling. The walls needed painting actually looked...

Room was clean. Could have been vaccumed better. Everything old, some rust in places and all in need of updates and repair. Wifi was fine in our room. Bed advertised as a queen..it seemed smaller. And the bed was hard and uncomfortable w/lumpy pillows. No coffee in the rooms. Nice views of bay! Would not recommend to women traveling alone....

My room was below average. Bathtub needed refinishing. There was no internet, WiFi or otherwise in my room. I was told that if I come to the lobby I can get online there, but I prefer to be in my room. The lobby was dark in the daytime because they were too cheap to turn on the lights until dark....

According to your directory the location we stayed at on 6/12 in Portland , TX has your best rating - 4 stars. If this is your idea of outstanding, we wouldn't want to stay at anything else you have to offer. Had we not been here for a family reunion, we would have left and found something worth the price...
