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 knew that this was not going to be a stellar place to stay, but I was so uncomfortable for the 2 nights we stayed. I really could not wait to get out of there. To start off, the outer door did not shut all the way. The room smelled like mold and dog pee, to the point that we...

this motel is right on the beach----it is just a basic room, but it was very clean. Looked like fresh paint, and new bedding. Bathroom is small, but met our needs. It is pet friendly, which is a big plus!!! The only negative is there is no coffee in the room, and the lobby doesn't open until 8:00. There is...

Seaside Motel is not fancy, but the price is reasonable and very clean. Also, they have free internet. They are pet-friendly and only steps from the beach. This place is worth the money and their staff is wonderful! Very friendly and accommodating, making our stay so worth it.

We return year after year because we bring our dogs to the beach, Dogs, not dog. Three dogs and they are all welcome every time. This is not an upscale hotel, it's a beachside inn and it is always clean and serves our needs well. We bring two large and one small dog and have never had a problem. Short...

the seaside is quiet adequate for my vacation needs. very tidy, friendly helpful staff, cold a/c, nice outdoor pool, laundry room. while not "beachside", it's only one dune away. yes, this is an older facility, the furnishings have some dents and dings. but I felt safe and it met my cleanliness requirements. best value on the island.

This a cheap roadside motel that happens to be near the beach. That's not necessarily a bad thing. The basics are solid: cold AC, hot shower, comfy bed, reasonable price (for off-season), and beach-front access. However, there are no amenities beyond wifi, a mini-fridge, and a microwave. It's an old property and very bare-bones. You'll have to bring any creature...

“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”
