“Great Hotel for cost”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We arrived 2 hours early to 3pm check in but no rooms were available per the gentlemen in the front. So we sit in the lobby within view of the front desk and wait having a drink. An hour goes by and he didn't let us know it was ready but I went up and asked another young lady who said we have rooms ready now. We have to wear red arm bands as if we did when we went to Jamaica but it gets annoying when you have it around your arm all day but I understand it is for our safety. We only stayed for 2 nights and the first night the room was 83 degrees even though it was set on 60.. We called the front desk and maintenance was able to switch out the AC unit for a new one fortunately. Which made a world of difference. I am thankful that was accomplished. The food in the restaurant area was great and glad they were open till 11pm.

Room Tip: We got the room with a balcony which to me was worth it to just stand outside without leaving the ho...

We stay in a condo here but we have stayed here several times. They have an inexpensive restaurant with an all you can eat breakfast. The pool is huge and right off the beach. The rooms are large have a great view. Very expensive during the season but very cheap during the off season.

Room Tip: Check their website for weekend specials.

If you are staying here, pay a little more and get an ocean view room. The view is fantastic overlooking the pool and the Gulf of Mexico. The rooms are very nice, clean, and they have adjustable firmness on the beds.

Room Tip: The upper floors are better for the view.

This is a really great hotel. I was there for three nights and had an awesome time. The lobby was nice and the hotel staff at check-in and restaurant staff was really nice. My overall experience was amazing. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants an amazing place to stay when traveling to South Padre Island, TX.

Nice lobby, room was nice,price was a little higher than what i usually spend on a hotel, but wife's bday weekend, so was going to splurge a little. So here it is....Tv lost signal first night on all the channels, guest service book had pages torn in half and pages falling out of book(mentioned to front desk and he said sorry and nothing else), went to the bar and pool waitress was eating oranges out of the bars stash like there was no tomorrow, without washing her hands and after dealing with money, no towels poolside, have to go to front desk to get a towel and they want them returned at front desk also, for 2 days we walked by a vacuum in the hall to our room---2nd day we started moving it to just see if they might get the picture, instead they moved it down the hall to the next column, chipped paint on the patio furniture,broken elevator all weekend. All in all, nice hotel, but not for the 200+ a night and not what you would exoect from a Hilton. Wife is a Hyatt girl, and she was not impressed in the least. Would i go back, yes, would i pay 200 plus for a room here again, No

Room Tip: Hilton also owns The Copa, little less in price and i can imagine the same service

Dear guest,

We are most pleased that you enjoyed staying with us, and thank you for doing so. It is most rewarding to hear how much you and your spouse loved your room. However, we sincerely apologize for our staff, pool towels, patio furniture, and broken elevator. We strive to exceed every guest’s expectations and disappointed to have failed in providing an absolutely perfect experience.
Thank you for choosing the Hilton Garden Inn and we hope you will give us another shot the next time you are in South Padre Island.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on April 11 & 12 to attend a wedding. I would have given the hotel 5 stars if it weren't for the dreadfully uncomfortable bed, the mattress was hard and dipped a bit towards the middle. Our room was nice, ocean view balcony, very clean and well maintained. We ate breakfast and lunch at the Garden Grille & Bar - food was wonderful - great selection for breakfast including an omelet station; our server during lunch was Brenda, we wanted fish tacos and she recommended ordering the taquitos and said they could make 3 slightly larger tacos instead of the 5 mini tacos. They were delicious as well as the beans and rice. We enjoyed a nice walk on the beach and since the hotel is on the north end of the island it's far enough from crowds that the walk was nice and peaceful. A little pricier than other hotels but - overall great experience.

Room Tip: Our room was on the fourth floor, on the north side of the hotel overlooking an empty field with an...

Hi there, Stephanie!

It pains us deeply that it was the bed that cost us the 5-star rating! We actually have firmness adjustable beds in every room, and if we had effectively communicated that, we would have had one more excellent review to add to our collection!

We're glad you enjoyed The Garden Grille & Bar (also on TripAdvisor), and we commend Brenda and our kitchen staff on a job well done!

Please come and see us again soon, and when you book, email our general manager Duvin Maldonado at BROSP_GM@hilton.com, and we will make your stay extra special!

Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback with us!

Rooms are just a little dated but were clean. Beds were hard as rock but we slept well. The ocean view was fantastic, the staff were great as well. Only a few off season maintenance problems while we were there but that's to be expected during the off season. It was a little pricey for this time of year but I would recommend it. I would for sure consider it if I were to go back but it would be based on the price.
