Our room was clean and tidy ,staff was smiling and helpful. Parking lot is small but still good. Quite literally a great time .For the price you pay your money is well spent. Continental breakfast is small , but the normal.

Wanted an economical place to hang out for a few days. Found Windwater at a decent price. Definitely a B rated place, but friendly staff. Rooms were fairly clean, but need work. Very nice view from the back patio of the suite I rented a Bay Side water inlet. There are outdoor grills to use which I saw several guests...

I stayed at the WindWater during April 2014 for about a week. The place was fine overall. As a solo traveller I wasn't looking for any frills...Everything was fairly clean and the wifi worked well.

I chose this hotel even after reading bad reviews, since I was hoping the view from the balcony would make up for anything....

The pics on the website are a gross misrepresentation of this property. The entire property looks run down, not well maintained like the pics, pool & hot tub were dirty. The double room we were in smelled musty & reeked of old cigarette smoke, bathroom fixtures were stained & hardware in both sink & tub were loose & almost falling...

Me and my friends came to padre for spring break. Being a couple of spring break kids our expectations for a hotel weren't very high. But I have stayed in a lot of hotels and this is by far the worst. Worst accommodations I've Ever experienced, worst costomers service, the maids don't clean the rooms, when we checked in they...
