What a great staff to serve your every need. Seafood was absolutely fresh off the boat the view is great, clean rooms. You couldn't ask for better place to decompress after a stressful week. It's not the Hyatt its not the Marriott, Hilton it is the perfect hotel without all the corporate stuff and that makes it special it's just...

no frills inn but very clean and great people to work with. Alexa and Hanna were exceptional to our needs and info requests. The Inn is right on the beach and has a lot of day trippers but is quiet at night at least during off season!!

I had 2 rooms 106 and 107 on the ground floor. They were clean and had a coffe maker, frig and micro wave. They provide coffee and filters. I think the maid service needs to be improved but it was just OK. Bed and linens comfortable. TV. Each room has and ac but they are kinda of noisy...but do cool.

Good deal for price. Basic but clean. Right on beach with good beach bar. Free city bus goes by door. Everything is close together on the island but this place less congested. Restaurant at bar and other good places within walking distance.

We were on the lower level and it was perfect. We really enjoyed being able to walk out of our room and eat or head right to the beach. Rooms don't have balconys and parking can be hard to find in middle of the day. Only complaint we had was they have bands on Saturday and we were tired wanting...

Rooms are just what you would expect. Very basic but clean, comfortable and came with a microwave and small fridge and sink. If you plan on going on vacation and staying in your hotel room this isn't the place for you but if you want great beach access stay, no stress then this is for you. The one complaint is...

We just returned from a 5-day stay at Wanna Wanna Inn, and I must say this is the closest thing to a Jimmy Buffet tropical resort on South Padre. You have the Inn, Grill, Bar and Beach right there, and literally do not have to travel anywhere else. We flew into Brownsville Airport, small airport with just two gates (you...
