“No frills - you pay for location”
Reviewed 16 May 2011

At the Wanna Wanna, your door is literally 50 feet from the beach. The rooms are typical motel style with a kitchenette and the bar attached can either be a great thing or a poor choice depending on the type of vacation you are looking for.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room to keep noise down

over priced!
the showers didn't work properly not enough water came out of the shower head!
the water was soooo cold!
we got charged an extra $50 cause our WHITE towels had "black and red stuff" that wasnt going to come off when they washed it!
$9 for the big towels and $5 for the smaller ones!
the hotel is on the beach how were we not suppose to get sand on them???
the bar and grill closed at 10pm on saturday!
the rooms are like a cheap motel!
i wouldnt not recommend this place to anyone!

We stayed for two nights off season recently. The best thing about the place is the location, right on the beach. We ended up with a downstairs room in the back right by the office. There was not a view but I think some of the upstairs rooms near the front may have a view of the water. The room needs some updating and a more comfortable bed but the rate was pretty cheap so its hard to complain. The room came with a refrigerator which did not work. We reported it to the office and they said that maintenance would be by. They never did stop by but on the morning that we were checking out there was a refrigerator outside of our door. This really didn't help us much. We complained to the front office and they reduced the room rate by $20 a night which I thought was a reasonable. So, for the price and location it was a decent place to stay.

My boyfriend and I had been to Padre in 2009, we stayed at another hotel, but spent all out time at Wanna Wanna, great food, and right on the beach, so when we returned in 2010, we stayed there, the rooms need to be updated, the bathroom has no room to put your toiletries, coffee maker was broken, we would have to go to the bar for ice, and got scolded that we wanted too much, but the patio, and bar are great for entertainment. We will be back in 2011, but won't get a room there unless they have updated, but will spend much time at the neatest restaurant and bar on the island which is Wanna Wanna...

Disgusting!!! We're from San Antonio, so we have seen our share of roaches...the big nasty ones, sometimes referred to as water roaches. These were everywhere in the room. They were coming out of the cupboards, where the dishes were, out of the bathroom, in the closet, from under the front door, which had a 1/2 inch gap.
We checked out after the second day. The only good thing was, we paid for a week, but they refunded the other three days.
