A couple blocks off the bay. Beach access directly across the main road. Very quiet, yet just a couple blocks stroll to wonderful bars and restaurants with dining on the water! Very conviently located. We stayed 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Comfortable bed and a whirlpool tub next to the bed. Romantic 😘 Be sure to stop for breakfast...

This hotel was one of the nicest I've stayed in. Even though there is a small view of the bay, it's not on the beach. After a little walk and heading to the other side of the island, we found the beach. Got some awesome pictures of kite surfers, waves, the jetty and more waves. Our stay was very short,...

Had a weekend to spend in South Padre Island so found this on the internet and photos looked good so booked 2 nights. Arrived late and always concerned when you need to prepay the rooms!

I was passing through SPI and needed a budget room for the night. The staff is very helpful and works hard to please customers. An interesting feature about this facility, there are lots of snowbirds from Canada and northern parts of U.S. in winter residence. If that's of interest to you, check this place out. The winter residents seem to...

You won't find a Hotel with a friendlier, competent staff than this one. Reasonably priced, clean, good location etc. We have been a guest many times here and will continue to do so. Five stars to the manager, Pam Romer, and her well trained professional employees.

This hotel is an older resort but very well taken care of. The staff were all super friendly and extremely helpful. The pool is not heated but clean. The hot tub stopped heating but the management jumped right on getting it fixed. The breakfast is very good with big waffles in the shape of Texas. A few negatives but I...

The hotel is older and could use some updating but the staff is super friendly and keeps the place clean. We went in February and they have a wonderful community of "winter Texans" living there and the hotel had many activities planned for them.
