Had a weekend to spend in South Padre Island so found this on the internet and photos looked good so booked 2 nights. Arrived late and always concerned when you need to prepay the rooms! First impressions seems OK - But not amazing like the website makes out.... Oh and then advised there is only internet in the lobby! WTF?...

I was passing through SPI and needed a budget room for the night. The staff is very helpful and works hard to please customers. An interesting feature about this facility, there are lots of snowbirds from Canada and northern parts of U.S. in winter residence. If that's of interest to you, check this place out. The winter residents seem to...

You won't find a Hotel with a friendlier, competent staff than this one. Reasonably priced, clean, good location etc. We have been a guest many times here and will continue to do so. Five stars to the manager, Pam Romer, and her well trained professional employees.

This hotel is an older resort but very well taken care of. The staff were all super friendly and extremely helpful. The pool is not heated but clean. The hot tub stopped heating but the management jumped right on getting it fixed. The breakfast is very good with big waffles in the shape of Texas. A few negatives but I...

The hotel is older and could use some updating but the staff is super friendly and keeps the place clean. We went in February and they have a wonderful community of "winter Texans" living there and the hotel had many activities planned for them.

WiFi access could of been better if it reached all over the hotel, the hot tub was nice but for some reason not as hot as a hot tub usually is. Also the staff was overall nice but some still had some unnecessary remarks. I understand if they want to talk smack, but they should have the courtesy to say...

The hotel is a little dated. Furniture in rough shape and king size bed was very uncomfortable. Pool was not heated. Hot tub was nice. Staff were extremely friendly. Great location. Breakfast was good, however no fruit. Quiet. Lots of dogs staYing for the winter season. Rooms were spacious and clean.

It was great experience for the price alot more than we expected. The staff was great interacted with them for towels for the hot tub in the common area. The only thing I would say was that it was not hot enough and not all the jets were working properly. The room was clean and jacuzzi in the room was...

We spent a week at this hotel and really there wasn't much more that we could have asked for from them. Warmer temps in the hot tub, better wifi in the rooms. A couple of chairs for our patio, too. Our room was spacious, large restroom, kitchen area with a table and chairs. Overall nicely appointed. The staff was supportive...
