The Staff was friendly, check - in and check - out were quick and easy, parking was available, free wifi, location was great, not bad for the price, family friendly, will stay here again in the future.

Very outdated hotel, and super noisy. The carpet and furniture in the rooms is so outdated and gross that it makes the whole room atmosphere gross. Kids running up-and-down the hallway. Dogs barking at all hours of the day and night (they allow pets, and people obviously leave their poor dogs kenneled in their hotel rooms while they enjoy the beach or other outings during the daytime). Exterior grounds were super dirty. No trash cans outside near the rear hotel exit so I guess people clean their cars out and throw their garbage on the ground of the parking lot. Security was okay. The hotel makes you wear stupid wrist bands to ensure you're a hotel guest.

A very pleasant surprise especially for the price. Booked 2 rooms..both clean and comfortable, seemed a bit small at first but really all you need. FRIG, and tv work..have to remove a lampshade for signal to reach tv but no worries. Beds comfortable with lots of pilows. Very nice and clean pool. Overall Nice for an older hotel. Day manager very nice. Told our teens if they wanted to use pool after closing @10pm. Just talk to night manager and he would leave it open til 11pm. That did Not work..with night mgr saying "each mgr is different and it's closing @10!" The wifi is very slow and charger plugs fall out of outlets. No biggie..we came for the gulf..which is gorgeous! But definately well over a 5 minute walk like is stated in hotel ad...which is important with the high heat. We love it and would book again! Bring lots of $$..eating is expensive as all activities are also. Love it!!

I booked a reservation to stay Thursday and Friday night-- when I checked in-- paid all the bill-- on Thursday morning at 4 am I am awakened by tragic news-- my brother in law has suffered a massive heart attack and is in his death bed-- i immediately gather all things and go to front desk and tell them what has happened. They say no refund. I leave and tell them I will deal with this later. No refund is possible with them---- in reality i never used Friday-- this is utterly unacceptable and disgusting they would benefit from this situation

The beds in our room were very comfy. We had a great experience staying here. A little outdated but not bad at all for the price. The pool was clean. The front desk was great when we needed a cab. I will definitely stay here again if I come back. Only downside is that our shower curtain wasn't long enough to stay in the shower resulting in water all over the floor.

TERRIBLE SERVICE. TERRIBLE PEOPLE. TERRIBLE HOTEL. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY NOR TIME. We had a room booked and the hour before check in, we get an email saying our booking was cancelled. We tried calling the hotel three times.. no answer. Called one last time and we talked to this rude man. Asking him why our booking was cancelled. Couldn't even me an answer. So we asked if we can book the room again. And he said it was already booked. Mind you, the email was sent not even 5 minutes. Don't give your money to these rude people.

First off, they charged over $900 in extra charges that weren't on the original price and attempted to charge us for an extra night (keep in mind the hotel is fully booked for Spring Break so we would not have been allowed to stay the extra night). Today, over a week after leaving, they charged an extra $580 to card unexplained (room was pristine upon leaving so damage charges are out of he picture). Secondly, upon entering the room there was a spider the size of a healthy Fuji apple just dangling and got very close to biting my ear off. I found what seemed to be a civilization of overly sized, athletically built fire ants having a get together in the bath tub, and the door didn't close fully, allowing various small insects to share the room with us. Of course the entering insects weren't willing to split the cost of the room so we were forced to get to know these lil fellas on an angry basis (didn't help the overall vibe of the trip). Long story short, don't book here, very rude staff that comes off as very scammy and unhelpful and a terrible quality motel to add to the aroma. I'd rather sleep on a bed of newspapers behind the hotel rather than stay another night here. Also the pool is the size of the spider I mentioned earlier.

This motel is a combination extended stay/motel room accommodations. Extended stay rooms are on the ground floor and motel rooms on the 2nd floor. All rooms have a refrigerator and microwave and the extended stay rooms have a bar sink and 2 burner electric stove top. There is a good breakfast every morning well supplied. There is a nice pool/hot tub well maintained. The help for the most part is very knowledgeable and friendly and prompt for any needs customers have. The maintenance man has been there for years and is prompt on any needs that arise. An overall good experience staying there.

I found this hotel on line. When we arrived we were not disappointed. We had a king suite. The room was large,clean and ready for us to stay in. It has breakfast in the morning and it got enough choice that you will not go hungry. Staff was very frendly ,we did arrive a day early but that was not a problem. Would return again.0

We have stayed here three times out of the last four years we visited the island. The motel is a little dated, but makes up for that by being clean, wonderful staff and centrally located on padre blvd. It is one block from the bay and two blocks from the gulf side. Restaurants are within walking distance, and of course, the bus will take you anywhere. The complimentary breakfast isn't much, but is enough for the lighter side. All in all, we really like it at this motel and will return.
