Positive Reviews

Upbeat about customer service

Guests were largely upbeat about the customer service, often describing personnel as friendly, accommodating and helpful.

Fair value for money motel with modern rooms

Reviewers frequently said they felt they got fair value for money at this low-cost motel. Not only were there inexpensive room rates, but the motel also offered an inviting pool plus modern rooms with contemporary touches like vinyl flooring and flat-screen televisions. Many visitors commented that the rooms were more than adequately clean, spacious and comfortable for a short stay and that the property provided the essentials well.

Convenient location

Set roughly halfway between beaches and downtown, this motel won praise for its location. Reviewers liked being just ten minutes' drive from beaches on Padre Island. Another bonus was the roadside amenities like gas stations, eateries and convenience stores that were nearby.

Negative Reviews

Unpopular Wi-Fi charges

Charges for access to the Wi-Fi network were a bind for reviewers who often said it suffered from slow speeds too.

Some criticism of maintenance and cleanliness

Despite many reviewers saying the motel was perfectly clean and comfortable for a shorter stay, others weren't so keen. Critics said that in some rooms they encountered issues like stained sheets or accumulations of hair and dust plus occasionally ineffective pest control measures. It was claimed that maintenance work was required in some rooms to tackle dodgy plumbing that caused water to drain slowly or pressure to be weak in the showers.

Nuisance noises and smells

Light sleepers were sometimes bothered by occasional traffic noise from the nearby highway or noise from adjacent rooms. There were also claims of unpleasant odors like dog smells or cleaning products in some of the rooms.
