If you are just looking for a place to spend the night without any luxury then this is your place,rooms are pretty small and just have the bare basics,if you are looking for luxury then keep looking. The place overall could be really nice if they put some money into it,tried to eat at the cafe but never could get waited on due to having only one waitress on duty so I went to Fins instead, For now with a shortage of places to stay since Harvey hit it was ok for me but watch out when the other places get going again! wifi was hit and miss and the parking lot is rather small and rough.

What great local place, laid back, friendly, beach vibe, food and fun. We miss the old juke box but the replacement still has all the great songs!, this is island old school, the basics is all you need no frufru here. We love the friendly staff, no shoes required and right on the beach access. Rooms are simple but adequate, they have gone to great lengths to fix the place up with fresh paint and some landscaping, the fresh water pool is a great way to rinse before going in for some oyster baskets, crab legs and cold beers! We are already planning our next escape back to the lodge!

I had a day to enjoy Port A and decided to try this little beachside lodge. I could only get one night for the cheap price so I took that one night and then came home. The single room was spotless and had the essentials. Bed, bath, and tv. We all lived outside by the pool with our coolers and hot plates, and the place is the most relaxed and friendly in Port A. I will be back. And the waiter, David, is a master!

To be fair and equitable I will start with the good points. The location of the hotel is excellent and right on the beach. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant combined with a bar had a wonderful view of the beach. The floor and bathroom of our room appeared to be very clean. They were polite and refunded our money when I pointed out our mattress condition.
Due to the bedbug outbreak in the United States I am very diligent about inspecting our mattresses. I was horrified to discover that the mattresses had black stains that were very similar to pictures of bedbug infestation. The room has a very small window air conditioner that does not seem to be very efficient and perhaps the stains on the mattress were mildew stains.
Regardless, I will never sleep on a mattress that looks like the mattresses in this hotel. I have attached pictures.

I have been here several times with family, my wife and by myself. Go for the view and the fact you are literally on the beach watching the Gulf. Service is slow, you have to be ok with seeing a cat occasionally and your bartender or waitress may be smoking - it's that kind of place - but there are not many places you get this view (I have been up and down other sides of the coast in Texas and Florida and there are just not that many right on the beach.) I have seen preppy looking folks walk out due to the service while others waited patiently for their relatively cheap beers. Off season rates are good if you like cheaper beers like PBR or Miller High life Light ($2.50 tallboys). Food is typical bar food but breakfast is pretty good.
