We stayed three nights here. Paid more than I wanted to. The staff was nice and answered all our questions. Easy check-in. The beds were comfortable or I was very tired after the trip. I wouldn't advertise having a breakfast. Especially when served store bought little donuts. But otherwise, my sisters and I had a nice stay.

I arrived to a great front desk staff only to be disappointed by the old scratchy linens and uncomfortable beds. The breakfast is false advertising with gas station donuts and sunny d. The room was quiet, but the beds were old and I didn't sleep at all.

I didn't expect a 5 star stay, but I had to ask for a different room because our original room smelled as if it wasn't clean. Also, there was a hole in a towel we received as well as someone's hair on it, comforters are old and bed squeaked tremendously. We only remained there to shower and sleep. Also, the...

For a cheap hotel on the island, it wasn't bad at all. Room was clean, nice pressure on the showers, bedding was changed daily. The sandpaper towels were understandable, who'd want to steal something that takes the first two layers of skin off? We made our own breakfast and coffee in the room, didn't check out the free donuts and...

I will admit, after reading reviews on this site and another review site, I was terrified to stay ANYWHERE on the island! After much back and forth, we decided on this one and it wasn't that bad at all. We had a clean room with clean sheets, a clean bathroom, and, what looked like, a blood stain towards the top...

This hotel served its purpose. It is not luxurious, it is dated, but it was definitely worth what we paid which was extremely reasonable. We had a first floor room so we had easy access (inside doors for security). Tiled floors were great since we were scuba diving and returned with wet gear. The rooms have refrigerators with a small...

Budget hotel although prices jacked up for Labor Day weekend. We paid ~$147/night. Rooms were clean but basic and worn. I didn't appreciate the advertised 'Continental Breakfast' on the site to find mini donuts from a bag, no milk/cream for the coffee just powdered creamer and orange drink instead of juice. I mentioned it to the manager and he said...

2 blocks from beach, kinda away from city center but good beach close by. Didn't want to pay for all the extras of luxury hotel, being that we were all sandy from the beach. So pillows thin, towels thin, soap didn't even lather. But it worked. Would stay again next time.

Please read through the following. It was very disappointing to choose this Hotel when you really go to South Padre for relaxing. Rooms were very dirty, linen were very very dirty. We found roches and other bugs in the rooms. Location was ok ok. Staff was very very very very nasty. Hotel (Motel) front desk staff is very very egoistic...
