We (myself, wife, mother, twin 2 year old sons) stayed at Padre South over a long weekend in May. It was my second trip to the hotel. It is not at all fancy, but for the price, it is worthwhile. The rooms are OK--I've stayed in both the 1 and 2 bedroom places. They have a hot tub and pool on a deck by the beach. The top selling feature of this hotel is its beachfront location, the cheap price, and its central location on the island--everything is within 2 miles. The only complaint I had this trip was some late night (3-5am) partying out at the pool keeping me and my kids awake all night. But it is clean and comfortable, which is all I expect when I only pay $120/night for a 2 bedroom condo on the beach.
