HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 March 2017

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...

I took a group of professionals to South Padre Island for a tour of our Island facilities. I made the mistake of thinking that this was the property I stayed at before. It was NOT! This hotel was a disaster. The elevator was not working most of the time and when it was, it felt as if it were about...

I stayed here for 2 nights during a business trip and I was pretty disappointed in the quality of the facilities. The elevator (out of 2) that worked shook compulsively. Get it replaced please! The entire hotel needs to be completely rehabbed.

Absolutely the worst stay at a name brand hotel ever! It started with a rude desk person when we checked in and got worse from there. Only one elevator was working (I see from reading other post that this is something that never seems to get fixed) and it sounded like it was ready to fail at any minute. Needless...

The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. The pool was average, but we came for the beach. The hotel was packed and a little noisy at night, but not too bad. There is a short walk to the beach, less than 5 minutes down an access road. Beware the hotel is not on the beach, but the walk...

The time was not the best to take a 2 year old They were absolutely overbooked... with only one elevator working. Waiting time was like 20 min to use an elevator at any time, day or night...so we went for the stairs. Pool was murky looking so we went to the beach instead... they do not have a beach access...

Dear Sylvia G, Thanks for bringing your concern to my attention and choosing to stay at our hotel. It is disconcerting to learn about the issue with your son's misplaced medication bag.

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.
