The walls are paper thin, and some of the guest stayed up all night partying, yelling and screaming. Did not sleep at all. Desk did not seem at all concerned. Do not stay there. Beds are hard. Go anywhere else.

We loved how clean and updated the rooms were. Right in the heart of town and walking distance to everything, the staff was great and very helpful with suggestions and things to do. We will always stay there when we visit

My family and I first started coming to Port A about 2010. We mainly rent homes through the short term pool of homes. Three or four times a year my wife and I will come spend an extended weekend by ourselves. It is during those weekends that we have stayed at a few hotels in the area. I investigated most...

I was there for a wedding of a friend. They had blocked some rooms right across the street from the church. The price was outrageous to say the least so we were lucky enough we had a friend with an RV set up in Rockport. Granted the drive was a little inconvenient BUT, I can buy A LOT OF GAS...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You stated that you were not the rental guest of the hotel and just a visitor. The rental guests were fully aware of the rental rate, which was a special discounted rate, when they rented the rooms. The adjoining room set up included two queens and two full size beds....

Stayed here on a Friday Saturday night. Was not impressed at all. The shower head was terrible and the room kind of smelled like a nursing home. I could've lived with all that but the first night it sounded like there were a heard of elephants up stairs learning to tap dance. I have NEVER been in such a loud...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. The showerheads have been checked and any needing replacement have been replaced. We did not show any reports of rooms with bad odors during this time frame, but we certainly would have checked and treated the room upon notification. We apologize for this inconvenience. The "Herd of Elephants" you encountered...

The hotel is a nice hotel, my only complaint was that the walls are thin. We could hear the TV on in the next room very clear and then you can hear people running or walking in the rooms above. Other then that this is a nice hotel for the price

We always stay at Alister Square Inn when we stay overnight in Port Aransas. We have yet to have had an unpleasant experience - and this time was no different. It's a good, clean, inexpensive (especially in the off season!) place to stay that's close to good restaurants and pubs/bars. Perfect for a night of pub-crawling! We had a room...

this hotel should not be worth no more then 40 dollars due to the fact of the noise. the noise in this hotel is really loud even after 1 am or even 2 am. if your lucky enough to get some sleep you will save your self from seeing lights of police outside the windows flashing blue and red. usually...

We've been coming to Port A since our honeymoon in 1997. We've stayed here two of the last 3 times we've come. If people want to see a "bad " place to stay I could recommend one and this would "NOT" be it. Our room both times (on opposite sides of the motel) have been clean and pristine just like...
