This multistoried hotel is right on the beach and the residents can walk straight to the ocean from the back gate. There is a nice shower at the back entrance to help the beach goers get a shower before they come into the deck/pool area. Even though it was built in the 70s/80s, the hotel has been well maintained.

Room Tip: there are separate rooms that have an ocean view.

We have picked this hotel due to its location. It on the beach. nice view from balcony. we are very happy with our stay. Old building but nice and friendly staff with comfortable bed. well maintained shower area. I will definitely stay at this hotel whenever I'll come back to South Padre Island.

Room Tip: Beach view from Balcony at the end.

Pros - easy access to the beach and restaurants are in walking distance. Bed was very comfortable; staff is friendly and helpful and really keeps the place clean despite the "cons" noted below. No problems with parking - Parked and left car and used free shuttle bus on island or walked. There is public access to beach to immediate right of hotel which was convenient which made it easier to walk out to beach vs. hot sandy windy path to hotel which you must take when come back as showers to rinse off are there. Umbrella & chair rental right there also. All rooms appear to have beach and bay view.

Cons - older place. We had the "2 room/2 bath" type which really just had a "screen" to pull across to separate the second bedroom area (full bed+twin). Our refrigerator didn't work - they replaced with a "new" 'fridge which worked fine. AC is mediocre - Staff sent up fans to use - The place is constantly damp....so nothing dries out inside and your clothes are damp even if you haven't gotten them wet. Wi-fi is free, but weak in rooms probably due to concrete walls. Pool area was very crowded on holiday weekend. Patios off rooms do not have seating. Hotel really needs a good update - owner should consider reinvesting and start remodeling from the top down. Probably could get a higher room rate if they did.

Room Tip: Rooms with even numbers face the pool area and south side of beach/can see causeway. Higher floors will be quieter.

This hotel, in its photos looked like a classic "Hawaii 5-0 esqe" place. It was severely run down and old. Needs major updating. The positives were that the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was terrible. Rust on the outside of the refrigerator, broken chair, ceiling tiles sucked in and made a moving sound every time the air-conditioning came on or a door opened. There is no food available in the hotel and the parking is very tight. One night we had to park across the street because there was nothing available.

It was a short walk to the beach which was nice with our kiddos.

Wouldn't recommend or stay here again
