I already had a reservation with set prices as soon as i got there they charge double the price, since it was done by their online booking system. Juan, the manager at this location was extremely violent and kept change his mind in what to do,

I swung out to the island for one night while in the area working for the month. I had a room already in the town I was working in and didn't want to spend too much on a second room so the Island Inn was perfect on a budget. I only spent a short time in the pool area but... More

A normal hotel for the price. Clean average room, has a microwave, fridge, ect. Staff was very friendly & let us check in early. Pool was overcrowded with loud children. Would not recommend. Walking distance to the beach & most everywhere else.

This was your average by the side of the road hotel. The room smelled a little funky and the hotel was noisy. It did have wifi and a small pool... which was all we needed the first night after driving and going to the beach.

Pros: It was a sheltered place to sleep. It did have a microwave and mini-fridge. We actually never used them, but it was available. There is free Wi-Fi and parking.The location and staff were fine for us. Cons: I do not believe this hotel was newly renovated. If so, then all the bedrooms should be renovated instead of a few....

Room stinks, mildew on bed linen, cockroach in hallway, I would chose a motel 6 any day over this. The only positive was the strong wifi. I guess you get what you pay for but at the same time, a motel 6 is cheaper and a lot better.

Just got home from a week long stay in South Padre, it was our first trip to the island. When making reservations we were kinda unsure because almost all of the reasonably priced hotels had very unflattering reviews. We finally decided on Island Inn and we are so thankful we did. Our room was very clean and comfortable - just... More
