Booked this hotel at nearly the last minute, all other places sold out. Hotel looks better in photos than reality. This could return to being a much nicer place with some much needed renovation. Its not terrible it just need to be updated. The staff was friendly, the location is very good within a short easy walk to the beach....

I have stayed at the South Padre Hotel now three times, and have enjoyed each stay! Not only was the room actually two bedrooms and a sitting area (along with a fully equipped kitchenette), it has a great view of the water. All the hotel staff were very helpful, but I enjoyed the pool, the hot-tub, the Restaurant and the...

This is an older hotel and could use some updating, but it was clean and right on the beach. That's what we wanted, so we were happy. :) The bed wasn't the best, but we slept good, so I guess I can't complain about that. It had the 3 things we were looking for: cheap, clean and right on the...

We decided on Monday to leave on Friday to go to padre. This hotel was the cheapest available. For the price it is a good hotel. the customer service is good and the pool and beach were an easy walk. The room is really outdated and the furniture is probably about 30 years old. But it is clean and affordable....

Rooms have small kitchens stocked with basic equipment, rooms overlook the Gulf. Ask for a room on the north side of the building you will be able to see fireworks from Louie's on Thursday and Friday nights. Needed a little TLC on maintenance but nothing that distracted from our enjoyment.

These rooms were dated & worn, but clean. The bathroom sink & counter seemed like they were part of the kitchenette. The inside of the small dishwasher was very rusty. Only 1 shampoo packet for 2 people. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. It might have been better for an extended stay, at least you would know to bring your...

Also, a unique set of rooms come with two complete bedrooms and their bathrooms, with a kitchenette and lovely den/living room, all as one hotel room. Great!!!!!...

for a bit over $50 a night (off season rates), we got a room on the 7th floor, with a wonderful view of the beach from the balcony or from inside through the wall of windows facing the north.
