As two graduate students my husband and I were looking for an inexpensive, but comfortable stay and this place definitely fit the bill. We walked to the beach everyday and walked to a few great restaurants close by. The owners were super friendly and recommended great places to eat and things to do. You can tell they are making improvements...

It was what I expected based on the few pictures I could find. We stayed in the "deluxe" trailer. It slept 6, 2 queen beds, 1 futon. All the beds were okay, not spectacular comfortable, not uncomfortable. Location is great. Although I believe they advertise 2 blocks from the beach, its more like 4-5 "city" sized blocks. Everything was clean,...

Thank you for staying at Double Barr Cottages. We are setting up more natural gas barbeque grills this year. Come see us next year and see what else we have done.

Not what was advertised on hotels,com. Couch looked like a 40's model, broken, and had holes on it. TV 50's model, refrig rusted. Looked worse than some fishing camps we had been in. I don't know how anyone could honestly post this to be rented!

We stayed in one of the beach side cottages in January with our three teenage kids. We were about 200 yds from the water Not luxurious by any means but we had plenty of space for all of us. Nice to have the kitchen area for cooking and snacking. If you plan on staying for a couple of days and...

Cant express how gross it was-Blood on shower curtain, stains all over the beds, windows-ref-floors-filthy. Had to wear flip flops in shower /and on floors! Decorative hand towel after unfolding was filled with dirt and hair. Used cup filled with black stuff under bed. Rooms never cooled. Doesn't look anything like pics.

We traveled to port Aransas on a very busy/booked weekend. Luckily we found the Double Barr Cottages had an availability. I thought the only cottages they had were in their main lot but we were surprised to find that our cottage was on another property. It was awesome --- quaint and quite. We had the place all to ourselves. Full...

Very helpful front office person named Suzy, who was fantastic. Places are cute and add charm from normal sterile hotel rooms. Our unit was clean and Suzy had turned the AC on to cool and accommodated our late arrival. Having a kitchen for making meals was a plus, but the unit could use some better pots, pans, and some kitchen...

Words cannot express how awful this place is. The "cottages" are really just little shacks that are very dirty, and very old. They smell of cockroaches, and roach activity is evident. The bathroom fixtures are rusted and dirty, there were no towels. The bunk bed was broken, and the bedspread had unidentified stains on it. I plugged in my phone...

We have stayed at the Double Barr a few years ago, but this was our first time with new management. The staff was nice and helpful and even put in an extra A/C unit to help cool the room with the 100 heat index. The room was clean and spacious with room for a pack n play and x-large kennel,...

My friends and I wanted a bit more space than a hotel room for our quick trip to the beach. This place was perfect. Quiet, close to beach & town and all that was described-not luxury, but it is Port Aransas after all. Had none of the problems some have mentioned and front desk staff is really helpful on fun...
