Nero was very helpful with recommendations on where to eat. Hotel was clean. Our stay at the Port Aransas Inn was very enjoyable.

I wanted to try and give a somewhat objective view of our experience and let you make up your own mind whether this is the right place for you or not. There were no rats or roaches or vermin of any type during our stay, or any other “weird” stuff. But here is what we found: Window unit A/C not...

It has been a long time since I have stayed at a hotel that actually had a strong pulse and lots of life flowing through it. The atmosphere is fun and easy going, and the rooms were clean, super comfy and had everything we needed. The staff and the owner are really great, the whole place feels like a big...

Well, I sent my husband, father and children here and they all loved it. No complaints. And I have to say we don't go on vacation too often because if the room doesn't cost $200.00 or more, my husband isn't interested. He's kinda a snob that way. He enjoyed his visit here and will be back. One of the many...

Thank you Nero for our wonderful time at your establishment! You and your staff were most gracious. My nephew and I truly enjoyed our stay...and so did the ankle biters! See you next time! Shelley and Hayden S.

Spent 5 days in Port A at PAI & cannot say enough good things about Nero, his staff & the property. Okay, to be honest I was a little nervous when we drove up and saw the "Pepto-Bismol" pink exterior, (they don't call it the "Pink Palace on the beach" for nothing) then walked into the office and saw the...

This is the second time that I travel to Port Aransas for our yearly family gathering there on July 4th. This year had a special meaning as one of our loved ones is no longer with us. Nero, the owner and manager of the hotel, is extremely personable, fun, friendly and accomodating. The hotel was reasonably priced for a last...

This probably isn't the time or place, but I want to pass on my heartfelt sympathies to the Balderama Family. Allow me to briefly share the story of their fallen brother, uncle, and cousin Benny Balderama. Benny was taken before his time from his family by a drunk driver. Benny was a firefighter, so I would like to also send...

OK - if you can get past the exterior (Nero my friend - you gotta slap a coat of paint on the outside!) - you will NOT regret staying here. We took a chance and stayed here based on all the positive reviews. When we drove up - I'll admit - we almost drove away. The exterior is a bit...

If not unwarranted, your kind words about me are definitely unnecessary. But they did bring a smile to my face, so I thank you. As for Satchel, she is a beach bum dog that loves everybody. I read her your comments and showed her the picture. Although it may have been the fact I put her tennis ball near the...

I reserved a triple room for my daughter and 2 of her friends. I was unable to find any pictures of the room on their website. That would have been nice. When I clicked on pictures, none would show. Anyways, I can't comment on the room itself. My daughter said it was fine. It would have to be a dump...

I have to be doubly vigilant when I've got young people without parental control staying at the property. So I remember your daughter and her friends quite clearly. Your daughter is charming and well-spoken, and moreover she and her friends were very well-behaved during their time here. You should be proud. She was also rather complimentary regarding the property and...

“Parking is tight. Motel has 3-floors but No elevators. Floors are thin so you do hear a lot of people/children stomping around.”
