inconvenience check in

The check in experience was such an inconvenience, check in time is at 4 and the room was not ready till about five...This is the 2nd time this summer I stay at this hotel and the same check in situation occurred you would think after paying 350 a night the rooms would be ready... I work hard to take a few leisure summer vacations and then having to wait even longer to began to relax.

Awesome family trip

We had a great time at Padre Island. Even though it was at the peak of summer travel time and the hotel was full , the staff was always friendly and helpful anytime we needed something. The kids loved being right on the beach and the pool was fun as well. The breakfast buffet was great even though it was a little crowded at times. Overall a great trip

Smelly room!!!

The room smelled like mildew and must. Hotel is too big and remodeling was done very poorly. Paint all over door knobs an peeling in areas. Dirty feel. Expensive for what it was. Location is ideal, but not worth the cheap feel of rooms. Painted terrible colors. Bed linens are the worst! Don't waste your money!!!

Beach Vacation

This hotel is at the end of the island next to a very popular bar. We visited during Spring Break but really had no issues with the crowds. The hotel was clean and all staff were nice, respectful, and accommodating. The deck outside was awesome. When you first walk outside, you see the pool (somewhat small--no hot tub) and then then is a huge deck with both lounge chairs and higher chairs. There is also another desk right beside it if you want a little more quiet. Then, about 100 more steps is the ocean. Can't beat that location. Noise...not really bad considering it is right next to a fairly large beach bar and we visited over Spring Break. Do your research and know ahead of time if you book this hotel, you will have a free concert when the bar books a band. :-) Breakfast...located on the 3rd floor. Turn left when you exit the elevator. If you leave hungry, you are too picky. Good food--go into the sitting area for the made to order omelets. Parking...if you go during a busy time, parking will be limited. This is where you will use the parallel parking skills you learned when you first started driving. Overall, this hotel is in a good location--right across the road from the birding place, the sea turtle rescue, and right on the ocean. Next door to music and right in front of the ocean. Staff is friendly place is kept clean.

Pleasant experience

We stayed for a week over the Christmas holiday. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Just steps to the beach. The breakfasts were amazing. The pool was a little small, but it was heated and the kids liked it. Though we didn't bring our dogs, the hotel is pet friendly which we didn't mind being greeted by a 4-legged visitor in the hall or elevator every now and again. Only complaint would be that their poolside bar/food area was only open for a couple hours in the late afternoon...we ended up walking to the next door Hilton hotel for drinks/apps a couple times. It's on the further tip of the island which we preferred not being in the heavier traffic areas of other hotels. For the price comparison of some of the other hotels, the LaQuinta is far worth it!

Not far down the main road is a little mexican restaurant called Senor Donkey's...doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food and drinks were by far the best we had for the week we stayed.

No complaints

This was probably one of the best hotel experiences I've had in a long time. The staff were helpful, cheerful and professional. The breakfast options were fresh, delicious and nutritious. It was clean and spacious. The location was superb. This hotel seems to have the best beach access on the whole island. They even had a library room.
