This place exceeded our expectations. We got a last minute deal for a quick weekend getaway on a hotel website. Pet friendly, which is essential for us, we have a lap dog. Not on the beach, but a quick drive. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and welcoming. Breakfast was great, usual waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy,...

If you're a smoker or a pet owner, you'll be happy to find this nice motel. The island doesn't have many options for you. Our second-floor room was very recently remodeled, and thus attractive. It had vaulted ceilings, small table and chairs for snacking, a ceiling fan, and a fridge/microwave. The sink is outside of the bathroom, so that can...

This motel is not on the beach, but less than 5 miles from a beach access, which is excellent. The price was reasonable and they even accept pets for about $20, I'm not sure if it is per night. Room was very nice, and clean.

Only issue that was experienced was bed comfort: hard mattress made for an achy body the next day. Need more comfortable mattresses, pads. Service was terrific, and morning breakfast good. Please add bacon to breakfast bar.

Really nice Staff and really nice rooms, very clean. The most comfortable bed in a hotel chain that I have slept on. Great pillows too. Plenty of towels that were super soft as well.

Very nice property/stay. Very clean bathroom area. We were on first floor and it was completely tiled. Looks nice but could have used a couple of area rugs maybe. Only negative was poor weatherstripping around room door which let directly to outside (no interior corridors).

I am picky about clean and comfortable. Visiting PINS so this is close and convenient to Corpus, Port A and Mustang Island. Room was clean and smelled very faintly of bleach. No carpet!!! Loved that.

The biggest issue we had with the room was the air conditioner didn't work all that well. It got pretty muggy in the room. There aren't a lot of places where dogs are welcome, which is why we chose this one. The staff was friendly, and the breakfast layout was OK. Making your own waffles is something I enjoy, so......
