The Inn at South Padre
Ranked #15 of 32 Hotels in South Padre Island
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Myself and the wife came to the island for a weekend stay . Not having reservations we pulled into the hotel and the price was just right for the wife and myself . The front desk staff was supper friendly we got a king size jac. suite the room was really big . Being friday night we were right in the action of the night the fireworks were 3 blocks away but you could see them from the pool . Which was awsome cause we did not have to go very far to see them . Then there was a movie on the wall above the pool for the kids it was great to see that . In the morning there was a breakfast that was eggs and sausage and waffles and coffee, juice , bagels and other things . The morning of our check out the front desk staff was as friendly as the affternoon staff . All together this was a great spur of the moment trip we well be back to this hotel soon . Thanks for a great Stay !!!!!!!

Worst hotel I have ever been at never ever come to it. This hotel needs that show hotel:impossible like forreal everything is falling apart there are big nasty roaches. The tv isnt the greatest at all the vending machines are all out of order our room had like bacteria looking stuff growing on the ceiling ill health hazard!!!!!! The towels are nasty it looks like they don't even wash them. This hotel needs remodeling or don't even come to this hotel at all. For breakfast there was lady that checked our tickets to eat breakfast(ridiculous) she was so rude. The doors are messed up , I have been to older hotels than this one and I have never had any problems like the ones I experience at the inn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We checked in late after driving 6 hours to attend Anime Convention, Banzaikon. We are not too happy with its cleanliness, and the smell of the rooms was horrible. We notified front desk who moved us to another room without anything difference from first. We're very disappointed with the beds as well as beddings and towels.Tables are even dusty.

Hallways are noisy and you can hear your next door guest talking. A/C is unbelievably loud. Service is not too great, they let you wait and ignore you. Very worned out decorations. Will never recommend to family members and friends. Not a very great place for FAMILY.

Room Tip: We don't think there's a GOOD room in this hotel. Try to scout for other hotels in the area...

Staff was so rude from the minute we walked in. They had sent me an e-mail a week before out reservation saying we didn't need to call everything was going to be fine. I get there and the manager drops a $50 deposit fee on me for each of us that were staying. He told me I should have called and I would have found out about it (we weren't financially prepared for losing $150) and it was no where on the booking info or website. Me and two other friends counted a total of 23 bodily fluid stains on the chairs, floor, and bedding. The sheets had not been changed from the last visit (there was trash still under the covers from who ever stayed there last.) Every morning I would find cockroaches in the bathroom....as if any of the above isn't gross enough....I will NEVER recommend or return to this forsaken hotel. Absolutely a let down and COMPLETE waste of money. I should have paid $30 a night instead of $120 for this terrible, horrible place.

Room Tip: Go anywhere else.
