“Great Location, everything else- not so great.”
Reviewed 11 June 2008

We stayed for 6 days. The room was not in the best of condition. The front door was damaged, it was really hard to close. The balcony door would not close, the doorknob was broken. The closet did not have a door. The beds and sofa were not very comfortable at all. The internet NEVER worked. A maintenance person was sent twice and made attempts to repair it to no avail. So then he just gave up and never came back. The room was not in the best of shape or the most comfortable, but the location and views were absolutely wonderful. The location was very nice because we could just take the elevator down and walk right onto the beach. They also have little showers right past the pool by the beach for your feet or your body. Nice! Plus in the front of the hotel, you can get discounted tickets to just about anything on the island. The hotel is on the far end of the island and you have to drive a bit into town where everything is. Overall we didn't get a comfortable room, but we got a great location.

Well here we go...... First the issues you won't like. We stayed on the first floor in a jacuzzi room that was gross to say the least. The carpet was so dirty/stained you wore shoes to keep your bare feet off the floor. The bed had a mattress from circa 1978 on it that bowed in the middle so you woke up with a sore back every am. The bathtub had rust stains here and there.

There was a big roach running around the room and a small dead one inside the clock, yes inside the clock on the face of it. The hotel is pet friendly if you enjoy hearing barking dogs wake you up at all hours of the night not to mention stains here and there on the OLD carpeting from dog "accidents". Oh did I mention the pet odors if you know what I mean? The room would not stay cool to our liking either. At night you could see mice running around outside the hotel that terrified the ladies. The beach was dirty and not cleaned or raked as well. The pool is tiny and gets overcrowded easily.

The good...... The staff seemed friendly.

Summing it up find another place even if it cost more, you will be doing yourself a favor. The hotel needs to spend some money refurbishing the place starting with the gross carpeting.

We got to the hotel and had to wait in line for an hour only for them to tell us our room wasn't ready because high school kids had terrorized it the night before. We showed up right at arrival time and didn't get a room until 6 hours later when we had payed to check in at 3pm. Other things that bothered me, we were put in a handicapped room and their was feces splattered in the toilet. I saw a huge garbage bag dripping with nasty water they had just thrown into one of the hotel cribs..BABIES SLEEP IN! That's just gross.

Week after spring break -A very nice hotel for the price ($59 a night mid-week). While the rooms did show some wear and tear, overall they were clean and very comfortable. Nice balcony you can see the ocean from or pay more and get a room that overlooks beach and pool area. Hotel personnel very efficient. Had minor problems that were all addressed immediately. Pool was nice. Hot tub was nice the first night but wasn't maintained. Water was very dirty by the weekend. Wireless internet connection was decent. Breakfast area good. BEST thing for us is that they allow dogs and we weren't charged extra for them - only a damage deposit. For dog lovers, this is the place to be. Environmental work on the beach not a problem.

We went to golf school for 3 days so it was nice to come to a hotel with a jacuzzi tub in it--- and the bed was comfortable & soft. My only complaint is that the sheets had started to "pill" and so were a bit scratchy. Otherwise- , hey, James Kelley --- you did a wonderful rennovation on this hotel!!! Good breakfast --- good beach access and for watching the sun come up-- you can't BUY a better location!!

Week After Spring Break
Clean room and bedding comfortable. Nice size room with mini fridge and microwave. Easy friendly front desk. Wireless Internet was low connection. Sofa bed was uncomfortable to sit on. Housekeeping was unpredictable all week.
Other thoughts, lots of undisciplined small children due to Mexico spring break. Not enough chairs for pool area. Heavy equipment reclaiming beach was noisy. Dog friendly is a consideration due to allergy to fleabites. Never tried the continental breakfast or pool/hot tub due to the number of undisciplined small children. I would stay again just not month of March.

Just came back from our trip to South Padre. Stayed at La Quinta
for one night on Sun. March 9th. We knew it was the start of spring break and there would be lots of vacationing young people so we had a bit of a concern of noisy , partying kids.
The weather was quite cool so I think it put a bit of a damper on the partying. We were awaken to noisy people only a couple of times. We reserved a king jacuzzi suite and were a bit disappointed when there wasn't enough hot water to fill the tub. My husband called maintenance and the guy was there in no time but he didn't really speak much english. He tried to adjust something in the plumbing ( not sure if he did anything) so we just waited for the water to heat up. As I walked into the room something didn't feel right or look right to me about the bed. Before I was to jump in about 10 p.m. I turned over the pillows to find a hair between them. I pulled back the top sheet and down at the bottom between the sheets was all kinds of hair. There was no way I was sleeping in that bed. So off my hubby goes down to the desk, no manager in, no housekkeeping at that time of night so back he comes with clean sheets in hand. So yup we changed the bedding. He talked with the manager in a.m. and she took 25% off our bill and said she would review with maid.

  • Liked — closeness to beach, breakfast, staff were accomodating
  • Disliked — beach construction, dirty bed, you don't know what rooms the animals have been in
