We stayed at the Blue Bay for three nights in a suite with a kitchenette. It was perfect for us. We had a balcony looking out on the back bay. The place was a little old but that's ok. Convenient location and very friendly staff. You are paying for location on South Padre. Would go back on our next visit.

For the price it was just alright (we didn't pay much). The view of the bay...well it wasn't what I expected from the previous reviews. Maybe we didn't have the right room, but I saw trash cans and dirt. There were a lot of cats around the pool area too, I guess that keeps the rats away. We stayed 1...

The hotel was clean but older in fashion. The hotel didn't match the reviews. The review said ocean view but there was a lot of brush behind the building and no poolside bar. Friendly staff. Elevator was very slow. The decor was out of style definitely not what we expected but ok for the price.

Across the street from McDonald. ..loved it. Next to a couple of sovenir stores. Would come back. Free wifi, free bk, ice, and Coke machines. Sony...

I would not recommend this property. It is an older building. There were roaches in my room. Staff was not very helpful. Our room was close to elevators. We could hear everyone come in and out. Conversations were very loud. Only one elevator was working. Pool was extremely small. One Mexican family took all of it. It was hard to...

This place was great for the price! We got a nice, clean room for around $44 from a Kayak deal. They have a clean pool and hot tub as well as grills to use outside. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. My only complaint would be that the juice is watery at breakfast. So bring your own...

The hotel is conveniently located towards the southern end of the island - close to the bridge and close walking distance to shops and a few restaurants. It's a little far out if you're planning on having a few drinks at Louie's or any of the bayside bars and planning to drive. The beds were clean and comfortable and the...

While it may not appear to be anything fancy, this inn has many perks. The pool area has a nice kid friendly pool with attached hot tub and 2 BBQ grills that can be used by guests. Fireworks are visible from the pool deck every Thursday Friday and Saturday from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The beds are extremely comfortable...
