Great hotel had a great time coming back in may.. Close to the beach pool was great also great location ..friendly staff

What a wonderful setting--literally steps away from the beach. The breakfast was wonderful and the made to order omelette were out of this world. All staff were friendly & very helpful. The house keeping staff do an excellent job. Nothing but good to say about this place.

Very friendly helpful staff, great breakfast, clean rooms, great location. Bathroom could use some freshening up, nothing major.

We loved our stay at La Quinta in South Padre! Right on the beach, and Clayton's Bar is steps away!

First time in fall didn't like my room in the first floor to much noise with the staff and busy with traffic of the place other than that good

Everything was awesome & front desk was very helpful!!!

Took my family for a short getaway, have stayed here in the past. Always know you will have a clean room, super helpful staff and the short trek to the beach makes this my place. Love it.

Never enough towels dingy old towels the balcony is dangerous the food court people are snotty the girls especially no customer service no towels didn't offer to call or replace them told me I had to go to the front desk no can handle the problem pass the buck

The morning breakfast was excellent and plentiful. The kids really enjoyed the access to the beach. The kids also liked the pool at night due to all the different colors flashing.

Lovely Hotel our room was what we expect clean and perfect.

Enjoyed our stay, staff very friendly and helpfull, great breakfast and easy access to the beach

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.

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

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!!!

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.

Good hotel on the beach, across from bird sanctuary.

I found the hole hotel great, good price, but the best thing is the breakfast!! beach is OK, but nothing great.

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!

The staff were very friendly, hotel very clean. Beach access great. Breakfast was fantastic

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.
