What really makes this place stand out is what you experience while staying here. From outside appearances at the street, it's hard to tell that this place is a gem in disguise. Once you're on the grounds and can see the pool and the colorful flowers, you begin to realize that it's not another big-box hotel or a sleazy motel.... More

This place is great! It is so clean and comfortable, the beds feel like my own temperpedic pillowtop at home. Kitchen is roomy and stocked well with coffe and real cream, so many little extras. People leave behind things they don't want to lug home like floaties, bikes, sunscreen, etc. and its yours for happy borrowing! Super friendly owners! Darcy... More

Third Coast Inn is rated by Trip Advisor as the most outstanding place to stay in Port Aransas, TX. We reserved a room based on that rating. We just spent 3 nights at 3rd Coast Inn in room 7. The ceiling in our room was no more than 4 inches above my 6'1" husband's head. We felt like we needed... More

Well sadly I guess this has to happen at some point, after 71 happy reviewers we finally met that one unhappy guest. First I would like to address the remark that this guest had a prepaid reservation,there is no such thing here at 3rd Coast Inn, we do require a credit card to reserve a room as does every other...

My 20 y.o. son and I just stayed for 3 days at the 3rd Coast Inn. It was superb; and better yet, very much Port A. Not a fancy hotel. No name brand.

“All the rooms we have been in is good to me. The one the end near the street by the mural is better for larger trucks and SUVs parking wise. The two bed room rooms have more privacy for adults with children featuring a separate master bed room and window ac unit. Check the web site for good pictures of the insides of all their rooms.”
