We have stayed at the Seaside Motel every single year for the past 15 years. We've seen management change over time, but we've always stayed on the back side in a king room and have built traditions there with ourselves and the two different dogs we've had in the course of those years. Our best friends and their little dog have gone with us now for the past four years as well. While it's what we like to call "just a cheap motel," it's so much more than that. The little fridge and microwave make creating a "kitchenette" possible and saves some money on eating out. There's also a vibe amongst the folks who stay there that is really welcoming and laid back.
I've been coming to Port A since I was a child and I'm now 53 years old. My mom always had us stay at one of the little free-standing cottages on "G" street, but we had to drive down to the beach every day... The Seaside allows us to walk down, return to the room by foot when we need something we forgot or to use our own restroom, etc. It's super convenient. They also keep bags of ice for sale in the lobby, which is really convenient.
We don't really like to tell many people about the Seaside because we want to keep it affordable and funky and available to us when we want to go there! But, today, Hurricane Harvey is bearing down and I wanted to write this as my heartfelt missive that it survives this storm so we can continue to go there for the next 15 years and beyond!!!
