This feels like a new hotel with the updating. Our room was excellent, bed very comfortable, and spacious. The breakfast had a lot of variety, was fresh, and kept very clean and tidy. It was one of the best breakfasts for this level of hotel. You could walk to the beach.

Breakfast was great, beds were comfortable, wifi was strong, staff was nice and helpful. Only downside was how hard it was at times to close the bathroom doors. But otherwise , the stay was great and I definitely see us coming to this hotel again next time we visit Port Aransas!

The nightly rate here is very inflated. As is are all hotels here. I have stayed at Destin Florida for less with better amenities. The room we are in is very small. The walk to the beach, assuming you're carrying an umbrella, beach chairs, a cooler....is way too long. What I read said that the walk was short and very...

The Hotel was undergoing renovation and so was a little rough around the edges. They have a nice pool and spa and well equipped with fitness room. The room was comfortable and the breakfast one of the best for a hotel of this type. In addition to the typical hotel breakfast fare, they offered eggs, bacon, cinnamon rolls freshly baked...

Spent the weekend in Port Aransas for Mothers day. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was spacious enough for 3 adults and 3 children. We spent most of our time in the hot tub since the weather was cloudy and windy. We still had a great time and will definitely stay there again.

We had a pleasant stay even though they are remodeling. Our newly remodeled room was very nice with the exception of the vinyl upholstered small sofa and the lack of a hook on the bathroom door.
