Have been coming to Anglers on Wheels for 4 years and this is the best place we have stayed. Thanks for being a sponsor. Glad to hear you will have new beds next month, it was the only near negative thing. Shower was great...actually had a stream rather than the usual drip found most places. Look forward to staying there again next year if not sooner. Thank you for the courteous staff also.

Room Tip: Have disabled grandaughter in wheelchair and room was on opposite side of building from handicap ram...

I have been staying at this hotel for many many years. This is the only place I will stay in Port Aransas. It is my home away from home. The staff is very friendly and very professional. They try and meet all your needs. The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. And when they say deluxe breakfast that is what you are getting. You have a wonderful choice of food for breakfast, Not just a thing of cereal and doughnuts. But warm foods, cold foods, and my favorite of all is the waffle maker. A beautiful sunroom to enjoy your breakfast in. The pool area is clean and the grounds well kept. They also have a picnic area with tables to enjoy a bbq while at the hotel. Most of all the hotel is very pet friendly. I do not mind paying a 50.00 non refundable deposit for my pets to stay. If I could give this hotel more than a 5 star I would just for the friendly staff and a comfortable place to stay.

We stayed here for our 25th anniversary. When the manager found out it was a celebration, he upgraded our room for a very good deal. It the cutest place, great location, awesome pool area, and so much prettier and cozier than other places we considered. We would definitely go there again! Service was excellent! We were welcomed with a free drink and breakfast was very nice. Its not a fancy place, but very beachy and comfortable.

My wife and I stayed one night at this hotel to survey the RV sites available on Mustang Island in anticipation of staying there for a month or two this winter. For a couple with a dog ($50 extra fee) the $200+ cost was more than the value received; however, as other reviewers have noted if you have a group of 4-6, the hotel fits well with budget and space required. Many rooms have 2 queen beds and a pullout couch. The refrigerator, microwave and extra sink allows some light food preparation although the complimentary breakfast serves the purpose for that meal. Rooms and grounds were clean with plenty of free parking. Staff were all business but served us well. I was impressed with the rocking chairs on the porch outside the rooms, but then realized that these are mainly "smoking chairs" which made sitting outside a little less desirable depending on how many people were lighting up and the wind direction.

Room Tip: This is generally a quiet hotel but rooms on back half are away from the pool and quieter

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review for our property. Each guest is very important to us and your reviews allow us to monitor how we are doing and where improvements to the property may be needed. The rates for the weekend you were here were higher due to it being a "peak time" here on the Island ...Labor Day. Our rates do drop quite a bit after this last big Holiday for the Off Season. Our chairs are a nice ammenity for our guests, however, because all of our rooms are NON SMOKING they are used for this purpose by our guests, we do apologize if this was a bother to you. We hope you will come back and see us again soon;.

I have stayed here every summer for the past four years for a simple reason: this place can't be beat. Each trip there are 8-12 of us and for the price this place is amazing. Not only are the rooms large, but they can sleep 6 (2 queens + pull out sofa) easily. Along with that the staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is someone at the front desk 24 hours a day. The location is minutes away from the beach and the many great restaurants in Port Aransas. Overall, Plantation Suites provides the best value we could find anywhere in Port Aransas.

Our stay was excellent, the accommodations were spacious, clean and very welcoming. The hotel staff were extremely friendly, and the location was less than a mile from the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Two thumbs up.
