Stayed here for a long weekend for spring break with my husband and 3 step kids. Dan was very helpful getting the room for us and helping us with payment. The room was a little smaller than expected but it was nice. Clean, nice pool area. It's a little far away from the beach, you have to walk across a parking lot and pass Schlitterbahn. We supposedly had free wifi but we could never get it to connect.

Stayed at Gulf View 2 for spring break and was disappointed. Had a group of friends and got two rooms for the few days we were in South Padre Island. Was thankful that our friends room was so much cleaner then ours. I was in room 204 and it was so dirty! The room had not been used in months so when we entered they had a huge fan and humidifier on trying to make it less mugy and smelly. It did not work. The only way it was bearable was with the humidifier running 24/7. The cups were moldy and nasty. The furniture was outdated. The sheets on the bed were uncomfortable and I constantly felt as if they were dirty and the towels in the bathroom as well. I refused to use anything in my room and went across the hall to our friends to cook and use the kitchen. They definitely need to clean this room and make it nicer. Room 203 where our friends stayed was very nice and up to date. They had clean towels and sheets and clean kitchenware.

We are currently staying in unit 306. The review from the January occupant is spot on. This place needs a major renovation. In addition to the loose tiles in the kitchen and the badly stained sofa the musty smell in the unit is intense. We thought no one had been in the unit for months so we tried airing it out to no avail. I am now trying Febreeze and burning scented candles. The white metal shelving in the pantry and closets is disgusting( old and rusty) .For the reasonable price we did not expect luxury but we were really disappointed with the condition of the unit. This could be a nice place to stay if they did some needed work on the unit. Hopefully the owner will read this and ditch whatever is making that horrible musty smell in the unit.

We rented unit 306 in the Gulfview II condominium development on South Padre Island for the month of January, 2015. Given the rental fee, we did not expect luxury, but we did expect comfort.

Both the pictures and the related description used to present the unit were essentially accurate. However, the photos and related description proved very selective and did not paint a full picture.

Quite simply, this unit was tired and very much in need of a face lift. As examples, careless or irresponsible occupants had allowed food smears to go unattended on the refrigerator and even on the ceiling. These had not been properly cleaned. The ceramic tile floor looked great in the advertisement's picture. However, tiles in the entrance and kitchen area were lifting either because of poor installation or water damage. The chesterfield looked fine in the picture, but on closer examination its cover was filthy. The television was dated and clearly on its "last legs". The second televison in the bedroom was tiny and lacked a remote. The refrigerator ran constantly and was unbelievably noisy. All of this contributed to a level of discomfort that was not anticipated.

The advertisement indicated that WiFi was available. When we arrived and registered at Island Property Service, the staff did not believe WiFi access was available in the building. However, the building did offer an open wireless network that could only be described as limited. With patience, surfing and e-mail functions were possible. The transfer of large files or any form of video streaming were impossible.

The building itself was quite well maintained. It offered a pay for use laundry service and an elevator. There was even facility to wash your vehicle.

We rented this unit through Island Services. Their staff were extremely helpful and accessible even after hours. These folks maintain a free towel exchange offered as part of the rental.

Though not 306, this condominium undoubtedly offers units that would provide a very comfortable home away from home. In the months of January and February, an odd numbered unit (facing south) offers much more sun and the related comforts.

Room Tip: Choose a unit with odd numbers if you want sun.
