Only good thing I can say about this place is the front desk help was friendly & the location was close to SPI....Suppose to be a 4 day stay but was only 1 & a half, the floors are NASTY dirty, remains of a dirt dober over shower, unstable stove, puts off a horrid stench when trying to cook, no dresser or cabinets to put your clothes, the bed caves towards the middle, the light didnt work in the living area & the final draw, my 5 yr old finding an unused, unopened condom in the tv stand! NASTY, NASTY, NASTY!

Room Tip: I have no suggestions or advice

Great stay. The staff is great, friendly and responds quickly to meet your needs. Anna the manager is terrific. She is on site all the time, and is very professional, and very experienced. I enjoy having separate bedroom, kitchen with full size frig and stove. Nice living area with sofa(bed) for extra room and and table w/chairs. Also has a great size outdoor swimming pool, with lounge chairs to soak up the sun and have a good read. The area is quiet with local security making the rounds. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, walmart, and Heb. Lots of room for the price. Don't pass this place up, you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: Also close to walking trail for a healthy stay. Great helpful staff.

Stayed for 2 days and loved it. The service is outstanding, the rooms smell nice and clean. The housekeeper always courteous,honest and hard worker. She did our service daily, checked on us to see if we needed any extra towels or other toiletries. The manager makes you feel at home from the time you check in and makes sure that if we need anything that she is available 24/7. This is our third time staying at this hotel since they opened. It is not a fancy hotel, but the sheets and the towels smell very clean we only need it to sleep and bathe plus the full kitchenette is a big plus. The only thing missing are the pots and pans, but this time we came prepared and brought ours which was not a big deal. Keep up the good work and we will certainly pass the word around.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good rooms, but our preference is a corner room close to the pool.

What a great place to stay. Staff is great, honest, friendly. Best price any where in the
area. Next year want additional family to come and stay here, since we have time share on the island but space is limited. This is the place to have them stay so we can do
family reunion. Don't pass this place by, stayed here when it was Delmar but new owners have made it much better. Enjoyed our 2 weeks here looking forward to next year.

stayed fairly recently at the port isla inn in port isabel, tx and loved it!
it was quiet and my room was very spacious and clean.

can't say enough about the owner/manager Anna who was so hospitable, caring, and helpful and made me feel at home from the word go!

Will certainly be returning!

The manager is awesome-she so sweet and available 24/7.The location is great and is walking distance to anything you need in Port Isabel . The rooms are very neat and the full kitchen is great to cook real food instead of making everything in a microwave!. :) . We've stayed for over a month and the great service is continuous. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit our part of the world.
