“Clean and basic room”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

A clean and basic hotel...not a chain. Tile floors in the rooms...I guess best for sandy guests in from the beach (< a mile walk) and their welcomed pets. Clientele drives chiefly pick-ups for fishing and stuff...makes the place a bit noisy. Individual AC units in the rooms - adds to the noise level. One very nice lady at front desk and another one that cannot smile/is a bit scary.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We appreciate your business and are glad you decided to stay with us. The tile floors make much more sense down here on the gulf coast due to the sand and beach debris that easily makes it way into the rooms. We know our Housekeepers appreciate it too! You may have caught one of our front desk representatives on a bad moment, and we do apologize for that. A cheery attitude is the only thing acceptable at the front desk, and hope when you come back again to stay with us..this is exactly what you will see.

I was so excited about the jacuzzi tub in the Palm Suite, but after seeing how nasty it was, we chose to use the shower only. There was fungus and mold growing around the inside of the jets on the tub. There were several horizontal surfaces in the room that had not been dusted in quite some time. There was an area outside with BBQ grills and picnic tables, but during our stay this was the area that everyone with pets took their dogs to do their business...gross!

Thank you for writing your review. We take all comments and guest complaints very seriously. We have had to do some re-training of our Housekeeping staff and believe this issue is now resolved. We encourage our guests who bring their Pets to clean up after they have done their business, unfortunately, not all do. Our groundskeeping staff does its best to clean up these areas, and we do apologize for missing some spots. We hope you will come back and stay with us again and see the many upgrades and improvements we have done this summer.

I stayed with a friend for a quick one-night beach "vacation" and found the Plantation to be a pretty good option. I'm not sure what the "suites" and "conference center" refer to ... our room was nice enough but certainly not a suite (not that we cared) and the "conference center" consisted of one room, from what I could tell.

Still, for our purposes the Plantation fit the bill. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. The noise level was a bit high -- I actually could hear someone snoring in the next room as well as somebody's nearby party. The staff was friendly. (Upon arrival, we were told to choose a beverage of our choice, from water to soda to an energy drink to beer. Okay!)

The pool and hot tub area was clean and well-maintained, especially impressive considering the crowd that was enjoying it.

Breakfast was a carb-lovers delight: biscuits, sausage gravy, donuts, cereal, waffles ... but to be fair, they also had a tub of yogurt and hard boiled eggs for those who eschew carby-fatty foods. There also were apples and oranges, so all in all, quite satisfactory.

Because we were at the beach and it was a holiday, I was not surprised at the price we paid for the room. From what I could see, people packed the rooms with family, friends, etc. to help defer the rather high cost.

If you are a patron of the chains, you might not appreciate the Plantation but I, for one, enjoyed it, a throwback to my memories of motels encountered on the road trips of my childhood.

The Plantation is a good choice for a beach vacation: sit outside your room on the comfortable chairs and sip a cool beverage, grill some dinner if you choose, as there are grills provided for patrons, drive 5 minutes to the beach ... On my next trip to Port Aransas, I very likely will stay at the Plantation again.

We are so glad that your Forth of July experience was a great one! We take pride in our "family friendly" atmosphere and strive to make our property as personable as possible. We do offer a great breakfast which we "change up" each day and it does seem to be a hit with our guests. We look forward to seeing you next year for July 4th weekend!

I hardly ever sleep in hotel beds... This place was chosen out of necessity. They were the only place to have an available room on Father's day weekend. I was pleasantly surprised! The room was clean, the bathroom was clean AND, best of all: THE BED WAS SO CLEAN! Actually smelled good too! The bed was comfortable and new and clean. What a relief! The only bad thing is that the walls are very thin. I heard my neighbors all night. The staff was beyond friendly. I will go back to this place.

HI

My family took a trip to Port Aransas. We need a pet friendly hotel and tried Plantation Suites.
We have vacationed in Port Aransas for nearly 30 years. This was by far the friendliest and most professional staff we have ever seen in Port Aransas. We had the condo for 4 nights service was excellent. Tracy Gutierrez and Shaun Sanchez did a outstanding job.

Room Tip: Condos are very large. Plenty of room for a family of 4.
