This is an inexpensive two-story hotel ($40+) situated on beautiful South Padre Island which abounds with an equally moderately priced array of restaurants in close proximity that will appease most palates. The Super 8 is about midway down Padre Boulevard (there are only 3 major streets with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Laguna on the other). This is not a high-end hotel; its main appeal is its friendly management and staff and long term regular guests (mostly seniors) that are almost like family. The rooms are clean and equipped with small fridge, microwave, table & chairs, kitchen sink, safe and other common amenities (some rooms have hot plates & couch). There is a washing machine, dryer, ice and vending machines found on each floor. A continental breakfast awaits you with plenty of good coffee and of course, the ever present waffle maker. A treat at the end of the day (between 5:00 and 6:00PM) are snacks and free wine! If you are lucky enough during your stay, a complementary hot meal is served to all guests prepared and served by one of the co-owners, Usha and her reliable staff. Every week or two, guests may participate in games or go on excursions arranged by a few guests who make this their permanent getaway. The other jovial co-owner, Josh participates in the game events and even provides a free keg of beer to quench the thirst of "athletes" in the not so rigorous activities. There is an outdoor (currently unheated) pool in a small walled-in area equipped with a chairlift.

The hotel (like most others on the island) is only a short 5 minute walk to the Gulf where you can easily and safely walk for miles in either directions. There are beach side bars along the way as well as public access paths some equipped with washrooms. My only general complaint about life on the island is that there not a lot of sports related activities available for the younger or young-at-heart crowd (such as public tennis, shuffle or pickle-ball courts, ball diamonds, etc...).

Room Tip: Rooms facing Gulf Blvd have the morning sun while the rooms facing the Laguna get the afternoon sun...

Thanks for your review. Yes Super 8 is a budget brand and we compete with the other budget brands on the island. There are more expensive hotel options on the island but we feel that we offer the best value amongst the budget brands. I agree that the city should have a rec center and it has been talked about for years but so far nothing. There is always kite boarding, biking, or a long walk or jog on the beach. Thanks, MK

We spent Friday night, March 7 at the Super 8 on South Padre Island, and couldn't have been more pleased. For $40.50, we had a lovely double queen room with refrigerator and microwave. The room was spotless, very quiet, and everything in it looked new. The beds were extremely comfortable, and even better, there was a safe and an adequate continental breakfast in the morning. I peeked in the windows of rooms with kitchens and sitting areas, and they looked perfect for a long stay! It is a great, reasonably priced motel just a couple of blocks from both beach and bay.

Room Tip: Back rooms get less road noise.

Thanks for your review. I noticed that you gave us 5 stars for everything except location which you gave 3 stars. We are not beach front but none of our competition is either. We are located in the center part of the island and are walking distance to many amenities. The Big Donkey and Blackbeard's restaurants are located next to us. We hope to have you back soon to serve you.
