Very close to Padre...

After a hot day, the partying in the parking lot till after midnight, a lady yelling at her kids in a foreign language, the pipes in the wall rattling all night and a defective air conditioning system, was not pleasant. Then take a shower and have dirt from the floor washing down the drain. We were scheduled for three days/nights...

Extra-large room on second floor with ceiling fans. Took a room far away from main office. Breakfast good. Friendly and helpful staff. Handouts in lobby, dining area helped in deciding what to do each day.
