This was your average by the side of the road hotel. The room smelled a little funky and the hotel was noisy. It did have wifi and a small pool... which was all we needed the first night after driving and going to the beach.

Pros: It was a sheltered place to sleep. It did have a microwave and mini-fridge. We actually never used them, but it was available. There is free Wi-Fi and parking.The location and staff were fine for us. Cons: I do not believe this hotel was newly renovated. If so, then all the bedrooms should be renovated instead of a few....

Room stinks, mildew on bed linen, cockroach in hallway, I would chose a motel 6 any day over this. The only positive was the strong wifi. I guess you get what you pay for but at the same time, a motel 6 is cheaper and a lot better.

Just got home from a week long stay in South Padre, it was our first trip to the island. When making reservations we were kinda unsure because almost all of the reasonably priced hotels had very unflattering reviews. We finally decided on Island Inn and we are so thankful we did. Our room was very clean and comfortable - just...

We stayed three nights here. Paid more than I wanted to. The staff was nice and answered all our questions. Easy check-in. The beds were comfortable or I was very tired after the trip. I wouldn't advertise having a breakfast. Especially when served store bought little donuts. But otherwise, my sisters and I had a nice stay.

I arrived to a great front desk staff only to be disappointed by the old scratchy linens and uncomfortable beds. The breakfast is false advertising with gas station donuts and sunny d. The room was quiet, but the beds were old and I didn't sleep at all.

I didn't expect a 5 star stay, but I had to ask for a different room because our original room smelled as if it wasn't clean. Also, there was a hole in a towel we received as well as someone's hair on it, comforters are old and bed squeaked tremendously. We only remained there to shower and sleep. Also, the...

For a cheap hotel on the island, it wasn't bad at all. Room was clean, nice pressure on the showers, bedding was changed daily. The sandpaper towels were understandable, who'd want to steal something that takes the first two layers of skin off? We made our own breakfast and coffee in the room, didn't check out the free donuts and...
