Better than expected

A friend and I went to South Padre Island to go surfing and fishing. We didn't need anything super nice or fancy, just a place to sleep and shower. The Travelodge ended up being one of the cheaper options, so we chose it. It ended up being perfect for us. Tile floors, and a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot were included (we didn't know that beforehand). The hotel is at the north end of the South Padre strip, which is nice because there isn't much traffic passing by. The hotel is not on the beach, but there is a private walkway to the beach which is great. Since the hotel is near the far end of the strip it isn't crowded on the beach up there. The staff was friendly enough. The breakfast could have been a little better, it isn't very much. Also, the air conditioners at the hotel make a lot of noise, to the point I wore ear plugs.

Good Location, good price, clean room

Hotel was at a good location, not right on beach, but just a short walk to the beach. The staff was friendly, and the waffles were great for breakfast. The room was spacious, and clean. The A/C worked very well, the nights were almost too cold. Free WIFI worked great, enabled me to keep in touch with people back home as well as share vacation pictures. Would def. visit again!

Was located within walking distance of the Seaturtle rescue center, which was one of our favorite places to visit. We went at least three times in a week.

No complaints, but nothing special.

Friendly staff at check-in, but facility needs more parking spaces. It looked liked many rooms were housing more guests than they should have been, two cars full of people jammed into one room to save money on room charges, apparently. This could be alleviated if the hotel gave out parking permits, one per room.

Don't let the name scare you; "Dirty Al's" restaurant, next to the entrance of Isla Blanca Park, has HUGE shrimp and friendly, FAST service.

Very Family Friendly

South Padre Island Tarvelodge Hotel is very conviniente for my Faily Island trips. Location is very close to Beach and Hotel have a private access, Pool is also very closed and secure for family activities. This part of Island is very quiete, more over, Fishing Trips Companies are very close to Hotel. My Family feel very confortable due to relax environment of Hotel and other guest. My Family enjoys Continental Breakfast as first activity making us to be a great Family all together.

They should have stayed closed!

Our room was on the lower floor. It had received damage from the heavy rains and Dolly-Ike. It smelt nasty and mold was on the baseboards and and climbing up the walls. Our guest stayed on the 2ed floor their room was fine. They should have keeped the room closed.
