I booked a room with two queen beds, was surprised it had two rooms, one bathroom and a small kitchenette. Is an older motel, very clean it has a small swimming pool. Good for a short stay. The motel is close to restaurants, gas station, shopping and if you need to buy groceries there's an HEB and Wal-Mart walking distance.

Stayed over for 2 weeks with my girlfriend. I arrived at Brownsville very late and also had to check out again very early, neither one of those situations were a problem for the hotel staff. The rooms were nice and clean.One little downside was the fact that we had no shower curtain on arrival and we didn't know that there...

This is an average hotel. I booked a kitchenette, and was surprised to find NO pots, pans, dishes, etc... that would have been nice to know. There was a stove, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Our room was clean, but older. The TV didn't work, but we were there to get some family and beach time, so that didn't matter....

A great accomodation for staying in the warm south during the cold northern winters. The owners/managers are terrific. You can't find full kitchen/ bedroom/ living room & bath with maid service any better. LOVE it!!

We stayed here 8 nights. Older hotel was clean with ceramic tile throughout. In reality the rooms are apartments, full size kitchens, dining-living room and separate bedroom. You will need to bring or buy kitchen utensils. Good for long stays! We would stay again.

I chose to get the king bed room and It is of course a small cheap inn to begin with but even for that it is an awe to see. I love how the bedroom is separate from the living room and kitchen which made it feel like youre more at home. The kitchen and living room are a single...

Booked this room last minute for a really good price. Every hotel on the island had outrageous prices per night, so finding this place was awesome. The hotel staff was very friendly upon check in. I was surprised at how big the room was. It had a living room with a bed in it, kitchen and a dining room area....
