One of a Kind historical location! Nothing can compare to the Queen Isabel Inn. This unique property offers features that no other hotel can. Private launch and docks, scenic views and pool amenities are the BEST! Close to the island and great location for the local restaurants and shops.

Although I did not stay there, I visited the pool, cabanas and bar area. Impeccable is the best word. Incredibly well maintained, staff was extremely friendly and the view is the best EVER! I would definitely recommend the Queen to anyone wanting the finest the area has to offer!!

My wife and I spent a week at the historic Queen and give it the highest grades all around. A bonus is the easy onsite launch and slips if have your own boat.

After reading reviews for other hotels in Port Isabel and those of the Queen Isabel, we decided not to take a chance on a bad stay for our first trip to the Rio Grande Valley. John Hammond was very cordial and accommodating from the first contact. The Queen Isabel is an old but very well maintained Inn right on the...

I stayed at the Queen on my last visit. It was wonderful! The management/owner was so accommodating and helpful for restaurants, activities, and local advice, that it felt like home. Quiet. Room was clean, amenities were like a 5 star place, and we will be going back soon. Fishing at the queen docks was very good. Speckled Trout, red fish,...

Every year we go on a trip during our Wedding Anniversary week. We had never seen the Gulf of Mexico on the Texas side, so off we went. Our destination was South Padre Island during Memorial Weekend. We arrived at Port Isabel and crossed the bridge to South Padre Island which we found to be very busy and expensive. We...

Recently I had the privilege of staying at the “Queen”. The “Queen” is full of history from days gone by. You can see that when you walk up and read the Texas historical plaque on the front of the building. The cottage I stayed in had every amenity one could ask for, from a wonderful kitchen area to cable tv...
