Decent enough hotel for the price and within walking distance to the beach. I had a room which faced the pool and that got a little loud at night, but okay overall. Nice buffet breakfast in morning - make your own waffles, cereal, fruits, bagels and muffins, juices and coffee.

The rooms are nice. The elevator is slow. The breakfast buffet is barely edible. That's why I stayed the best western. Plus it's less expensive. I really don't have much more to say other than cleanly rooms. Stay at the best western. I would definitely look in tot I best western first.

Very clean hotel. Great service . The hot breakfast was good. Had the eggs and sausage . Kids loved the pancake maker and cereal bar. Coffee as usual was awesome. The room was relaxing and clean. Beds were very comfortable!

A shame a property this close to the water, in a resort community, was not built with balconies. Owners took the cheap route. Rooms are still in good condition, & the staff provides very good service overall. Happy to return. One complaint: this is a "resort" community, so breakfast should be served until 1030A & not 930A.

For a casual beach stay, this will certainly do. It's clean, and close to the beach. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. It's hard to find anything reasonably priced on the beach in Port A. Even the condos/hotels have long boardwalks. So, I recommend staying here and driving to the beach, don't walk. We paid $12 for beach parking pass...

This feels like a new hotel with the updating. Our room was excellent, bed very comfortable, and spacious. The breakfast had a lot of variety, was fresh, and kept very clean and tidy. It was one of the best breakfasts for this level of hotel. You could walk to the beach.

Breakfast was great, beds were comfortable, wifi was strong, staff was nice and helpful. Only downside was how hard it was at times to close the bathroom doors. But otherwise , the stay was great and I definitely see us coming to this hotel again next time we visit Port Aransas!

The nightly rate here is very inflated. As is are all hotels here. I have stayed at Destin Florida for less with better amenities. The room we are in is very small.
