We stayed in Florence #604. It was very clean and had most of what we needed. The furnishings left a lot to be desired. The sofa bed was not usable as a couch. The cushions didn't fit right. The bed was so so. The balcony view was wonderful as was the beach access, and there was on site parking, albeit a bit crowded. The worst part was the elevator. Thank gosh it worked when we moved in. It did not work much after that. It was hard to walk up 84 steps, and we would have done more had we not had to walk back up after coming down. With a little updating on the furnishings and an elevator that worked,, this place would have been 4 star.

We stayed in unit 606, which is a one bedroom oceanfront unit.

We paid $80 a night. The normal rate was quoted as $150, but we were a last minute catch and the pool was under construction.

The location is fine, you are right on the beach. There is a small lap pool and jacuzzi for the building.

The building is old (1960's) and dated.

Our condo smelled badly of mildew, and the furniture and acoutrements were cheap (expected in a beach rental).

Our friends stayed in #503, which was much nicer (no smell, nice furnishings).

Good hangout to take the kids, perhaps not the perfect place for that romantic weekend.

We stayed in #302 and this is one of the best finds on South Padre Island! Nicely furnished, great view, fantastic price! They even had the opportunity to rent us the attached efficiency, which would have made it a 2 bedroom, 2 bath that would sleep 8!
Highly recommend!

We stayed in unit 508 for five nights. It was perfect for us since we have a 9 month old baby. Her pack & play fit perfectly into the room. I would not recommend this unit if you have more than 2 adults since it is an efficiency and close quarters! We did not cook in the room although it has everything you would need to do so. The fridge is a small one but has plenty of room to hold the basics. We did keep a cooler in the room for our beverages. It has a nice view of the beach and we enjoyed being able to go back and forth from the room to the beach during the day. The parking is convenient too. The pool is small but was nice to dip into after being in the salt water. I would stay here again due to the reasonable price and location.

We recently rented unit 508 of the Florence I in South Padre Island. This unit is an effenciency and was pretty small. The pictures we were sent by the management company showed a full size refrigerator; however, we only had a mini refrigerator. This presented a problem since we had purchased a lot of cold food before checking in.

The room was very clean upon checking. There is no maid service & there is a $5 charge to get clean towels - which you have to go the management office several blocks away to get. However there are laundry facilities on the 2nd floor, so we just washed our own towels.

The property was very affordable, and I would stay there again. However, next time I will rent a 1 bedroom, since the effenciency was a tight fit for 2 adults & 2 children. The property is right on the beach & has a nice lap pool & hot tub.
