I did not appreciate having to wear a band 24 hrs a day to prove I was staying in the hotel. The constant harassment from security. I had plans for an elegant evening and the band was not appropriate. They should find another way to keep out un wanted guess. I did not book a vacation in the county jail....

Waterfront hotel with plenty of amenities. The rooms are clean and the staff is accommodating. Just be conscientious of Spring break when booking. We stayed during the prime of spring break and this hotel appeared to be the hub of every drunk college kid on the island. In saying that, the hotel had excellent security and managed any rowdy guests....

This was our first visit to S.Padre Island and enjoyed our stay. Seemed to be one of the best values for lodging on this island. Rooms were well equipped and attractive.

This is a great place to come and enjoy the island. Rooms are very spacious and nice. Loved our balcony view of the Gulf. Staff at the desk were most helpful and the food is great. Place is so well kept. Love the big deck out by the beach and the pool area is fantastic.
