“Stay here! Stay here!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

On our way home from leaving 3rd coast and still talking about what a great place. It was a cold springbreak weekend but the hot tub took the "chill" out. Darcy was the sweetest ever. Loved the complimentary bikes, which we rode to the beach and around town. We stayed in rm 4 and had plenty of room for our family of 4 adults 2 kids. So cozy and quiet...love it. We will be back this summer!

I came down to Port Aransas, Texas last week for Spring Break, and it was quite a drive from Michigan. I stayed in the double room (Room #5) with my friend, and we both had a great time.The room has a single queen bed and a bunk bed with a full on bottom and twin on top. There was plenty of room in the kitchenette to cook up meals, and there's a small kitchen table that seats about 3 at most. The beds/sheets were clean, and we had no problems with bed bugs (i.e. no bites, itching, etc). The floors are tiled, so no issues with nasty carpet. The TV is in an awkward spot (only the queen bed can watch it), but when you look at the layout of the room, there are no better options.

The outdoor hot tub and pool close at 11, but there were a few nights that we stayed out there way past that. It's very private out there, given that the Inn only has 6 room total. They kept the pool areas very clean.

One and only complaint is that the bathroom didn't have a fan, so if you take a dump, you better shut the door and vacate the room for a little fresh air. Also, because of no fans, stuff in the bathroom gets wet (deodorant, toothbrush, combs, etc). Easily avoidable, just annoying.

We both agreed that we'd come back. If you're a single guy, this is a great place to stay. There's bars close by (~10 min walk at most) where you can pick up chicks and bring them back for a swim without having to deal with a bunch of strangers ruining your privacy.

Beach is a 5 minute walk down the road.

Although I missed out on this trip due to work, my husband and daughter really enjoyed their stay here! I spoke with the owners a few times and they were always awesome and very helpful accommodating us and the changes we needed. My husband could not say enough about how friendly and helpful Darcy was and how he can't wait to go back! Hopefully I will be able to make the next trip. The room was very clean and comfortable, as well as safe! Kitchen had just about everything you would need, there were lots of towels and the property is located in a great location. We have no need to look further than the 3rd Coast Inn for our home base when traveling to Port A!

We booked this property for a two night stay without having ever seen it. Honestly we booked it mainly on price. The rooms were very well equipped and spotless. The kitchen has everything you would need for an indefinite stay. The host are very friendly and accommodating. You can bet that we will return. GREAT VALUE

Great place to stay in Port Aransas, if you like friendly, personal service and a homey atmosphere. My favorite plusses are the bikes to borrow and the hot tub to come home to after a long, chilly ride (I'm here during coldest week of the winter so far)! If you want privacy and a place to retreat, they will give you that; if you prefer more company they seem always willing to stop their many work tasks to chat and help you out with requests. Close to beach and town, which makes biking to both a good option. I am feeling so at home here that I decided to extend my stay an extra night.

Room Tip: Even though I didn't need a double room, I'm glad I booked a suite, cause the kitchen is gre...

For such a reasonable nightly rate you wouldn't expect very great facilities. 3rd Coast Inn somehow provides WONDERUL facilities at a very low nightly rate! It is a small operation with just a few rooms that allow for a very personable experience provided by the owner. The room I stayed in was well maintained and nicely decorated. It had a queen and a twin sized bed, flat screen TV, DVD player, free wi-fi, coffee maker and all the other amenities you expect from a hotel room. The location was a short drive from the jetties and Caldwell Pier. Overall, it is a great value for a nice room, two things that usually don't go hand-in-hand in the hotel industry! Oh, there is also a pool and bicycles on the property that you can borrow, a nice added touch! Will surely be staying here on my next trip to Port A!
