We stayed over night and woke up with blood stains all over the bed. We looked closer to see bed bugs on both beds. Now we are worried about taking bed begs home. We will never stay their again. When we checked out we told the front desk about this problem and she didn't seem surprised she just said we...

I stayed here on the recommendation from a friend who said that it is walking distance from the mile marker 5 on the beach, which it was! I shared a double /double room with a friend which included 2 twin sized beds with pillow top, a mini fridge/freezer, microwave and flatscreen tv. Room was very clean, free wi-fi which gets...

we just stayed from June 30 to July 3rd, 2016, and it was really run down, sad conditions. Nice to be so close to the beach, when we decided on this hotel, that was the main factor, but the accommodations were pretty grim. First of all, we never had hot water. I did complain, but the property manager said the...

Family and pet friendly. Walking on and off the beach. Rinse off stations. No frills, no worries, no hassles. Staff is hometown friendly. Never had a complaint. It is clean and efficient. Not a luxury place, but if you are in Port Aransas for the beach there is no better place on the island.

We had about 15 people total including kids. So It was big enough to sleep all of us! Plus they had remodeled the rooms ! So close to the beach! Excellent for the price! The kitchen was huge and it had a stove and frig! Enjoyed the balcony overlooking the ocean!

This motel is truly no frills. The bed was clean (as far as we could tell), and the bathroom was clean. There was plenty of hot water, and the room was spacious enough. It is ridiculously close to the beach--we put our beach stuff in a wagon and walked to the beach. It's literally about half a block. I believe...

Summer break was upon us and we wanted to make a quick trip to the beach to kick things off. We wanted something inexpensive , fast, super easy and quick access to the beach. We knew going into it that this wasn't going to be a luxury hotel. It is what it is. Nice clean beds , clean room, clean...

My wife and I were looking (last minute) for a place in Port A right on the beach. Condos are all either booked or outrageously priced, so we went the motel / hotel route for our 3 night stay. A friend and his wife have been coming to this location for years and recommended it with the understanding that it...

“I am hooked on the Seaside. Single, double, triple or condo - all are like home to me. Just walk out the door of your room and there's the beach. The Seaside is my only choice for Port Aransas”
