Life’s better on the beach -- especially when it’s spent at our boutique hotel on the marina of Port Aransas. We bring modern vibes and classic island flair together with spacious guest rooms, vibrant pops of color, and a laid-back atmosphere. Take relaxation to a new level at our getaway -- wake up to a complimentary breakfast before basking under the coastal sun and listening to the crashing waves of the gulf. And just steps away from exceptional dining and entertainment, we guarantee you’ll end vacation with a great story to tell.

The hotel was very nice and clean. No breakfast due to covid. And that means literally every restaurant on the island had a 2 hour wait for breakfast. Even whataburger was insane. Gas station breakfast it is (blah). The room was spacious and clean. Sheets were scratchy There is little to no insulation between up and downstairs so we heard stomping people all night long our last night and that was with a box fan. No sleep at all :(. Easy access right off the ferry. Very short Walking distance from pirate ship cruise, dolphin watch, deep sea fishing, and good restaurants. No pool but we didn’t care, that’s what the beach is for. Probably wouldn’t choose this place again unfortunately because of the lack of sleep. Everything else was fantastic about the hotel!

We stayed Memorial Day weekend and expected the crowds. But the walls of this hotel are incredibly thin. We had neighbors who were loud, drunk and screaming for hours on end. Called Michael at the front desk and while he called the room, nothing changed. Then in the middle of the night when the drunk yelling started management was again notified and never even received a response from them, despite the messages showing as read via fb messenger. Not even an acknowledgement of the issue. We could not enjoy our room due to the noise level. We also stepped out to our truck to find 4 trashy and disrespectful adult males draped over it like it was their own, just hanging out on top of it. Despite the rude neighbors, you will hear EVERY. SINGLE. DOOR. open and close all night long in loud bangs. The rooms are clean and very, very spacious. This hotel has potential, but when you don't care about guest satisfaction enough to even bother responding to an issue, I have an issue spending any more money at your establishment.

Stayed here for 2 nights was placed in a room in front of the laundry room and a door where people were constantly being load at 3:30 am. The room was a nice size, furniture okay, but the noise was not tolerable. I would pay more next time I paid 134.00 per night. I would not recommend staying here unless it’s your last option.

Not sure when this place open but it has a brand new feel. The location is right on the corner and easy to find. Parking is easy and free. Large spacious rooms. Nice breakfast area. Clean comfortable rooms. The best part is the price found this room under $50.00 Great bargain!!
