Exceptional 10.0
We had a great time staff were so nice they helped a lot . I loved that breakfast was at 8 so didn't have to wake up so early .loved that the beach was just steps away

Great location, basic hotel
Great location. You are on the beach and in walking distance to restaurants and bars. There is a stove and full-size refrigerator in the room. The room is well-worn but clean. The daily maid service did a very good job. The free "breakfast" is terrible.

42 years ago, my wife and I spend our honeymoon at this hotel. We knew it was on older property; but we decided to come back and try and get our same room. It turns out our old room was booked. But we got a "like kind" room. It had a double balcony.....which we were willing to pay extra for. We were directly on the ocean. It was SO WORTH IT to pay extra for a room facing the ocean with a double balcony. This hotel is older. It will never be confused with a Sheraton or a Hilton. But for the money and the view, I would call it one of the "BEST VALUES for the MONEY" on South Padre Island.

It’s all about expectations
Having stayed here several times in the past, I know what to expect. It isn’t terribly fancy, but it’s utilitarian and provides what I need, overall. Could the 32-inch TV be larger? Or the bed a bit nicer. Sure. But for the price and location, I’m ok with that.
