Room was okay, included full, fully equipped kitchen and nice beach view and beach access but there were roaches in our bed when we came back at night to sleep after housekeeping had been in to clean and they would also be crawling out of the sinks. Very quiet and calm environment.

The room was comfortable, clean and spacious, great service, the pool area was clean and comfortable too. Just the road to the beach they need to improve because the sand was very loose and kinda dirty.

Location was great and the service as well. Rooms are perfect though the sofa beds are a bit hard, but love that it has a kitchen, coffee pot, microwave, etc. Just the right things to keep my little family happy

My partner and I used Expedia to purchase a bundle deal for round-trip airfare and 4 nights at the Padre South Beach. Our flight from DFW to Brownsville landed at 11:30pm, so we didn't even get to the hotel until around 12:15am. I had called ahead to let the staff know, and everything was in place immediately upon are arrival....

Hotel was great to stay in at a last minute planned vacation. Everything else was booked but this one certainly met my expectations. Every one is super friendly and helpful. The pool is open till midnight while at others is open till like 9-10PM.

Rooms with kitchens are good to have, when your not out eating and having a few drinks/shrimp at the local hang out spots. The Padre South Hotel is a excellent place, friendly and very close to the beach. The Island is only 4 blocks wide and very easy to get around. Do your home work on things to do before...

We have an efficiency Time Share at Padre South. When the kids were little it was fine, last couple of trips we've upgraded to a larger room. The hotel is older and there are places where it shows it's wear. On this particular visit there was an AC line that "rattled" every time the AC turned on. (fairly annoying, I...

I was a bit skeptical upon booking our room, due to the previous reviews that my fiancé and I had read. That being said, we were very pleasantly surprised!! Property was very well maintained, clean, and the staff was very friendly, as well as accommodating. Absolutely could not beat the location, as we were right on the beach. (It was...

I loved how simple it was to get to beach. The hotel needs updates though. The hotel was packed so we didn't get to enjoy pools, but overall it was a great stay. I will probably try out another hotel next time though.
