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.

My husband, son, and I decided to stay here due to the prices ( I now know not to do this...). After viewing the pictures online, I was hooked. I had driven by this place while in Port A because we travel here at least twice a year. Pictures were great! I had to call to book beca

Rooms where very small and had roaches, smoke alarm battery was dying told front office nothing was done about it. Rooms where hot and beds where hard. Probably good for a one night stay but for the prices you pay, you would think it would be nicer!

Never been to the area and hope this question doesn't sound stupid.....is there a beach close? If so, how far? Thanks!
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.

We are planning a trip to Port A in January for 8 weeks. We have 2 small dogs 11# and 23#. Are looking for an efficiency type accommodation with cooking capabilities(kitchenette). Have a friend who lives at Island Resort just up the road from you who says you have cabins available and she recommends your establishment. Was wondering what your long term rates would be. Do you have a hot tub?
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!

How old do you have to be to check in? I've hear 18 and I've heard 21.
Minimum Check In Age is 18 with a matching ID and Credit Card. For Spring Break, if you are under the age of 25, there will be a deposit that is refundable when you check out.
