Good Price...simple comfort

A great hotel for a comfortable and low-cost stay. Staff is attentive. Not a luxury hotel; hence, the 3 star rating but it's a good place to stay and get a comfortable nights rest.

Comfort Suites and Inns by Carson@harlingen tx

My main concern stems from the breakfast section. The same housekeeper that was wringing the mop to mop the hallway was the same person bringing out the food to the breakfast bar. This was disturbing. I arrived to a very well stocked breakfast bar. I enjoyed my meal with my wife. I noticed the cleaning lady coming out to deliver some eggs. a minute later, I observed her wringing out a mop and mopping - setting up the wet floor sign, and two minutes later carrying food out to the bar - with the same apron. Needless to say. I felt a little sick.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

My wife accidentally left lipstick on a towel - which I was told I would have to pay for because the towel was ruined. Did I complain about the hotel room? ItThe paint was or it needs to be refressed. To bathtub was somewhat stained - or had not been washed in a while. No. I will not be staying here in the future. thanks.

Average property needs updating

Friendly staff. The rooms are dated and needs updating really bad. The exterior grounds are ugly. The pictures on the website are very miss-leading. The pool looks nothing like the website nor do the rooms.

South Padre Island Weekend

Hotel was great! We stayed here over the Memorial day weekend while visiting South Padre Island. The drive to the island was about 35min but worth the drive for the price and overall hotel experience. It was great to have the suite which has a separate living room area. All amenities and breakfast included. Great deal!

Good stay

My experience was overall great with friendly staff, easy access to 77 and 83, and comfortable accommodations. My only complaint is that when I took a shower around 3:15pm the water completely stopped halfway through and didn't come back on for 30 minutes. I guess you should warn your guests when you turn off the water for maintenance work!

Beware

Beware this hotel's management is not customer friendly. If you have a dispute they will always decide against the customer, I believe. Even had my bank on the phone with me and the manager was not willing to consider any adjustment not even 20 to 40. The bank at first was not willing to fully dispute but after talking to the manager they put this into full dispute.
