The perks: Great location across from the water, still need to take your vehicle to get to beach area. We grilled outside (bought a grill). Small, but ok pool for family fun. Spacious efficiency type unit. The downside: Nothing fancy or modern about it; the tiled floor felt dirty to step on barefooted; Bathroom needed a better coverup on the...

Price inexpensive. You get what you pay for. Most of lights on pier were burned out for fishing. When I complained. Was told they are renovating and haven't gotten that far. Must be hard to change a light bulb. Big bulbs maybe but light on the pier area was a normal bulb. Internet access is a joke; slow and dropped...

Nice older motel, nothing fancy,our room was clean and on upper level with view overlooking the bay. Staff was very helpful. Pool is small and unheated, take your own chairs, looks out over the bay. On occasion you will see dolphins swimming by the motels fishing docks. Close to the Rockport beach, restaurants and shopping of all kinds. Will stay...

Discovered my on-line reservation never made it through the internet when I tried to check-in. Some kind of computer glitch between Travelocity, Experian and the motel. The management was very helpful and found another motel near by that was willing to give me a room at the same reservation price! I really appreciated their assistance and friendliness and I'm sure...

Stayed here for 2 nights in late summer 2014, last minute reservation and the only availability I could find. Room was spacious (an efficiency), clean except for the door of the fridge - was covered in grease from the stove directly in front of it. Disappointing to say the least. Couldn't connect to the wireless; went to the office and...

We booked a room here for our second and final night after the bad experience at the Bayfront Cottages and the folks that own and operate this property were very nice and found us a room. The room was pretty tired and needed some serious updating and maintenance but was generally clean and had a great A/C and strong water...

Best affordable place on the bay. Recently booked 8 rooms for my wedding, and everyone had amazing stay with discounted rate. The rooms and bathroom were clean and spacious than I thought, though the property is old. The staff is very friendly and location is nice. Truly enjoyed the view of the bay. Despite being pet friendly you could smell...

This was our first time staying at Magic Sun Tan Motel. The staff was very friendly and were willing to assist anytime. The water front view from our view was awesome. The view of bay is awesome along with plenty of space for my kids to spread out in the room. The management and employees were so nice, and treated...
