“Awesome find for weekend”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

On a July last minute get away I found the Island Hotel after everywhere else was full with Fishing Tournaments etc...... We were very pleased to find a very clean room with Great and Friendly service that included Breakfast.The room was updated and clean. I later learned the Owners also have the Highly rated Best Western Ocean Villa in Port A. So thats where the learned the Great Service. The rate was reasonable also , a little sand in Pool but other than that it was a Great experiance, with Fresh towels poolside.we usually get a Condo but for a Quick Get A way i recomend it Highly.

Great hotel for the price. It is nice for families. Their game room is a great get away. They have late hours at the pool, which was nice. The rooms are tile floor. I was unsure about it at first, but it is easy to clean. We thought we might bring a broom next time. Oh, & they also have a grill out by the pool. We would definitely stay again. The kids really enjoyed it. With a few upgrades, it really could be one of the best on the island.

Everything was great. The rooms were a little small but then again we had a ton of stuff.
The staff was great too.
Loved the game room for the kids.
Loved the fact that we could bring our dog and there were a lot of dogs.

On a whim my boyfriend and I took off to Port A., not knowing if we'd find a room, but hey that's all the fun. So glad we drove by Island Hotel. We got the last room there. (Only because someone canceled). And we loved it. Loved the floor. No carpet was a plus. Nice clean, cool floor, not to mention it had a foamy feel to it. I thought that was neat. Beds looked great, and a clean smell all around. Up dated decor. Didn't have time to try out the pool or even the breakfast. We will be booking a room here for the weekend in the fall sometime. Fall rates 1/2 off, yeah, and Sharkys being right across the road from the hotel was Kool! Met up with some friends of ours from San Marcos there.

Room Tip: Rooms down stairs you can hear kids running around above. But didn't bother us. We prefer downst...

This was our 2nd trip to port a this summer and our hotel experience was much better. The room was clean beds were comfortable and the kids liked it. Short drive to the beach the only issue was slight shortage of parking but that was quickly addressed and easily resolved. Hotel was much cheaper and smelled better than the days inn we will definitely stay here again.
