I love this hotel. The rooms are nice and clean. All rooms are no smoking..but if you do smoke, you can smoke outside where they have chairs and proper disposal of the butts. Lol Nice tv's and free WiFi. Nice swimming pool also. The manager is very nice and polite. Nero or Neto, not sure of his name. He might... More

This little hotel (approximately 50 rooms) is affectionately known by the locals as "The Pink Hotel". The outside is explanation enough as to why. It's no 5 star resort or even a Holiday Inn. It is so much more. A bit run down on the outside, fairly nice on the inside. It really feels like home. Friendly staff and a... More

Stayed at the Port Aransas Inn for the first time. It does not seem like the idea place to stay, but it quickly grows on you. Everything was so clean, our room was fully stocked (bed linens, pillows, towels, toiletries.) We stayed in the Magnolia room, it was nice and quite cozy. The owner/manager, Nero was just awesome. He was... More

This is a no frills hotel but comfortable and clean. We got an upgrade to a king suite with a full kitchen, which was nice. Had to ask twice for linens for the futon and did not get maid service the next day (only stayed two nights) but I'm not sure we were supposed to. The kitchen was stocked, water... More

Every year our family stays here. We love the owner and the entire staff, each of them always a smiling face. The rooms are very clean and homey. Outdoors pool, hot tub and entertainment are fun day and night! Continuously a great experience!

We stay here every time we go. Nero (owner) is the best! We always feel welcome. It's close to the beach and very reasonably priced! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a laid back atmosphere.

Staying at the Port A Inn is always a great time! Nero, the owner/manager is great and always available to help with any needs or recommendations for your stay. We always travel with our golden retriever and The Inn has by far the best pet policy on the island and the pup always has a great time too! We typically... More

We had what we termed the Magnolia Suite. It was like spending the night in granny's room! It was beyond tacky and absolutely fun! The bed was comfy. The room was nice and cool and clean. We would come again. Had a great stay. Bring your own toiletries.

We had to cut our trip short due to an emergency but this bright pink motel deserves kudos for one main reason - it's manager Nero. He has his hands full running the Inn yet he treats each guest as if we were the most important people he has ever met. That is quite an accomplishment for sure. It's not... More

“Parking is tight. Motel has 3-floors but No elevators. Floors are thin so you do hear a lot of people/children stomping around.”
