Yes, it's an older hotel. That being said, it's filthy. Whatever you do don't look under the beds. Gross! If you have allergies this place is not for you. If you do decide to stay, wear shoes in the shower. Don't walk around barefoot. I'd compare the bathroom and floors to a

Pros: 1. Cheap before paying $20 a night for two small dogs. 2. Pool and hot tub were clean. 3. Beds were comfortable. 4. Fairly clean except for a few small roaches. 5. A/C worked good. 6. Nice people. Cons: 1. $20.00 a night for two dogs and there were grass burrs EVERYWHERE.

I wish that we would have realized how bad this place was before we got to the motel. Needless to say, we didn’t use the bathtub. It was a very uncomfortable night & we canceled our reservation for the next night.

Actually a little less than a mile to the beach. Follow Cutoff Road on past Shark Reef. Go through the traffic light on Alister and continue straight ahead to the beach. There is a very large pier at the north end, perhaps 3/4 of a mile from where you first drive up to the beach. Continue past the pier to the jetty area for good fishing.

Good morning! Our long term rentals are available starting at $900.00 a month for a 1 bed Kitchenette, however we do not accept pets on any long term rentals at this time. My cottages are $1250.00 per month. All monthly rentals have a refundable deposit on them. Our pool is being renovated starting at the end of this month, and will reopen in March of 2016; then we will have a hot tub, swimming pool, waterfall, and margarita tables for all of our guests to enjoy. As of this moment, the only room with a hot tub is our Honeymoon Suite, which is a daily rate. I recommend Sea Breeze Suites, located in Port Aransas, or the Chamber of Commerce may have more information than what I know of. Thank you for considering the Shark Reef Resort! If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at (361) 749 - 6993. You can speak to myself or the Owner Jennifer. Thank you!
