Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kmorgan Excellent access to beach
I have stayed here many times with my family and friends. We all love this hotel. You have great access to the beach and views from most of the rooms. The sand bar and swimming pool are very convenient the kids loves being able to swim while we grab a cold beverage from the bar. They have security all night that helps with peace of mind so you can sleep at night instead of wondering if someone is going to break into your car. The only thing that could be better is parking. There is just not enough spots. The rooms are clean and unlike other hotels that we had stayed at they don't feel damp on the inside.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frank53 Low Key Spot for Beach Weekend
We went on a summer weekend, and chose a balcony room w/ oceanview, so obviously it was a bit pricy, but for those looking for a nice, quiet spot on the beach compared to busier areas like South Padre, this does the trick. Staff was all friendly, good bar and live music (which ended at 10 PM, so no worries about losing sleep). Balcony was well worth it as we were able to enjoy the bands from there if we didn't want to go down to the bar and instead just enjoy the breeze. Beach access was very simple...seemed like much more of a "local" atmosphere than a tourist trap. Didn't have the food, so can't rate that, but if you want a great dinner, drive up to Port Aransas and have dinner at Shells Restaurant (go early, bc the restaurant only has about 10 table. If you go after 6, expect a half hour-45 minute wait). A/C, Fridge, Micro all worked well...very enjoyable weekend all around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TxSwimmer2014 Please clean the pool
I love this hotel...it is one of my favorite places to stay at the coast but the pool needs some serious attention. More than throwing in more chlorine and a simple vacuum that's just maintenence.
I'm talking about the ring of grime that has accumulated just above the waterline...it's really kinda gross.
PLEASE CLEAN ASAP!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Atl2014 Older Property but on the beach :)
This property is on the beach and it is a "public" beach in which you and everyone else can drive their cars on. The beach had seaweed everywhere which made it look and feel dirty.. So if you are going for beach front, this is your property. However, this property is older and our room needed new carpet, but overall the room was updated and clean. The lobby, restaurant and front door windows needed to be cleaned - very poor first impression it gives guests. You had someone mopping the floors all day in the lobby - Need the windows cleaned as well... The restaurant food was awful and the service was little to none. There is a coffee shop in lobby that was nice. The pool area was nice and has a kids pool and adult pool area. The bar area outside gave great service and very friendly. The band that played was great. I did like the security guy checking wrist bands because we had a few folks that were tossed out of pool area.
Overall, a OKAY place to stay. Could be better if cleaned up a bit. Kudos to the young kid that made the lemonade !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ramgrammy Excellent Hotel!
This is a great place to stay for convenience to Marker 37, shopping, ad FUN! The beach is right behind the hotel. The swimming pools are great - one for adults and two for kids. There is also a hot tub! I would have given this place an excellent all the way across, but neighbors interrupted our sleep, but management took care of the problem. We have stayed here several times in the past and NEVER had a problem at all! One time we tried another hotel in the area --- not gonna try that again! This is the place to stay if you are in North Padre!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by carlos777 Pricing
Unlike my previous stays at other hotels and a Holiday Inn in the Dallas area, I did not receive a corporate discount. I'm with Lennar Corporation based out of Miami, FL. If not for the convenience of the hotel's location, I am leaning to stay elsewhere...where they do offer me a corporate discount.
