Last year, we stayed at the La Quinta and apart from the amazing breakfast, it was a disaster so we vowed we'd try somewhere else. We were very comfortable here and while the property is not on the beach, it is a reasonably short walk to get there. This is a no pets property so there is carpeting, not tile...

The staff at this hotel bends over backwards to make the guest feel welcome. Pleasant and professional. We stayed 5 nights in total. The front desk staff was always willing to answer any question. Though this facility is not on the beach, the big Holiday Inn is right across the street and very accommodating. Highly recommended.

Our trip to South Padre Island was for business. The weather was so beautiful the two days there this week, I wish we were there to enjoy the sunshine and the beach. The hotel was close to the office location and it made it suitable for our purposes. The lobby was clean and appeared to be newly renovated. The rooms...

I went to this hotel last year in March, I understand it gets rowdy with it being spring break and the hotel cracking down on "rules" BUT they were so rude to me and everyone I was with that I will never stay here again.

Girl at the reception was new. Took around half an hour to check in. She was polite and professional but definately not ready for the job. She was the only one working at peak check in time. We did not get the suite we had reserved, had to settle for one without a jaccuzi. Hotel is nice. Breakfast was great....

We were very pleased with the cleanliness of this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included each day which made the value of this hotel even better. The location was conveniently located near the Birding Centre and Sea Turtle Rescue. There was a pool and hot tub and it was a short walk to the beach.

The location is just a one block walk to the beach and Claytons beachside bar. The staff are always courteous and helpful. The Jacuzzi rooms have a great few of the bay. Rooms are large and kept very clean. Only downside is a bit outdated and have a small shower. Otherwise the place to stay on the island.
