4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2010

This was our 6th visit to Plantation Suites. Tracey welcomed us and our room was ready. They are in the midst of updating/refurbing the rooms and, even though we had one of the older rooms, it was clean and tidy with all the amenities in place.

When booking at P.S., we know when we will be staying and always call ahead. We always get the best room rates this way. We have never experienced any service issues at Plantation Suites, found the folks there very pleaseand and we are repeat guests.
We will bring my wife's sister down to Port A and Plantation Suites again this year. She came down from Chicago a year ago, loved the place and wanted to return.
The pool and hot tub are always clean and the place always tidy. The breakfast is just fine...they have a daily hot item, make your own waffles, cereal, fruit, pastries, juices and coffee. What more could you want.......

We arrived at 6 PM to check in and were told our room wasn't ready, but that it would be ready in 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, we checked and it still wasn't ready. One of our friends arrived to check in when we had come back to see if our room was ready. Plantation Inn had screwed up their reservation and given them 2 rooms (don't let Rosie take your reservation over the phone, she doesn't have a clue what she is doing). They only needed one, and since both were ready, we ended up taking one of their rooms. The next day, we returned at 4:30 PM and our room had not been serviced. We called and requested service. Nobody came. We called at 5 PM, and again, nobody came. We called at 5:30 PM and simply asked for clean towels, forget cleaning the room. At 5:45 PM, FINALLY somebody came with clean towels. Their "hot breakfast" is a joke. We went into town and got our own breakfast after we almost barfed to see what they offered.

This is the 6 th year John & I have come to Port Aransas for 7 0r 8 nights in mid February. After the 3rd year we decided the motels situation was not workable and decided to go to Florida. So we started searching the web and could not find suitable reviews for Panama City Beach where we used to go. So we thought we'd search Port Aransas again. We found Plantation Inn & Suites on the web and it sounded too good to be trued, so we called the chamber (3 years ago) and they said it was rather new like under 10 years and that the operators continued to up grade the motel and they only knew good things. So we called and made reservations--that was 3 years ago. We love the motel. We have stayed in motels from North to South and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. We even were motel managers in Colorado. So we have a fair idea of what is good or not good in a motel. The rooms are huge compared to most. All about the room spells "CLEAn, COMFORTABLE WELCOMING. The cute breakfast room is so inviting and the breakfast way beyond the average continential breakfast. There is even a computer for guest use in the lobby. We already have our reseravations for next February and plan to take our feline friend. A good motel makes all the difference in the world for a vacation stay. J & J Missouri

We went there for our 6th anniversary and have absolutely No regrets about choosing this trip. We went for their Brass Pro Fishing Adventure and we felt like thieves because we got a lot of bang for our few bucks :) The room was surprisingly spacious and clean, their heated pool was great, the Breakfast in the morning was More than just a couple of pastries and coffee, I mean come on they had biscuits w/ gravy one morning Yum! the Staff is EVER so KIND. Especially Janey, Tracy, and Ben who by the way went with us on the boat out fishing and took pictures, which they put on cds for us and mailed them to our house Free of Charge. Our trip included a Shrimp Boil which was simple yet Delicious. It was Great! We will be looking forward to going back. Note: This is not a Hampton, But its NOT a mangy Days inn or Motel 6 either. This is a comfortable hotel without the "corporate" feel. You feel like a guest, not a customer. I think the people who low-rate this place have TOO high expectation for a hotel on the Island close to the water. Musty smell? Its on the ISLAND next to WATER..hmm put 2 & 2 together :) *Bottome Line, Loved it Would Highly recommend*

Online service to book room was slow. Call directly to hotel. Pool and cabana area are lush with plants and comfortable. Breakfast area and selection had plenty of variety and was actually pretty good. The room smelled like an old musty cave but was clean. The mattresses, pillows very comfortable. Room is deep and long with kitchenette at back. Appliances worked well. Tile floors were perfect for our dogs. Bring rugs or dog bed. It had recently rained a lot and we were attacked by billions of aggressive mosquitoes as soon as we got out of the car and had to make a quick trip to a convenience store to get bug spray. Everyone was lighthearted about it and offered to share their bug spray. We had a good time overall but transferred to a condo after two days because of noisy upper floor family and cheaper prices. Charges for pets were excesssive and not posted on the online information..

I have been coming to Port A for 30 years & this was one of the best stays I can remember! The staff was awesome & they went out of their way to accomodate me, my friend, & our three young children. Our queen kitchenette was clean & comfortable. The continental breakfast was a nice bonus. There are not many places on the island that provide towels for the pool! You just can't beat it for the price! I plan on staying here again & again & again!

The walls here are pretty thin... within minutes of our arrival, the manager notified us that the people downstairs were threatening to call the police on us b/c our child was making too much noise although he was not doing anything out of the ordinary. The next evening, the tables were turned on us when we were forced to listen to conversation, TV, and random knocking from the room next door.
also, we stayed three nights and room service did not clean the room even ONCE. They came by late in the afternoon on the second day, but we were unwilling to give up our siesta. They returned a little later to hand us new towels...
The decor in our room was quite spartan and depressing---stark white walls and uninspired prints haphazardly hung. It wouldn't take much time or $$ to warm this place up.
Or at the very least, management should invest in new, comfortable pillows. I feel that I need to rest up from my restless 'vacation.' For an average of $170/ night I expected much more.
On the plus side: the location was great. We enjoyed Port A in spite of the Plantation. And, although we didn't use it, the pool looked relaxing...
