    « Nice location »

    Good location about .30 miles from a beach. The area was quite. Breakfast was good and had a good assortment of food. The bed and room were comfortable and clean. The pool was nice just missed a hot tub. Nice modern decor and staff was very friendly and helpful. Light placement was rather odd but great outlets for phones and other electronics.

    « Would love to come back when the sun is shining! »

    Celebrated my Mom's 85th Birthday with a Texas Road Trip and Port Aransas was our first stop after landing in San Antonio. We walked to the beach from the hotel in the evening and hoped to return the next day, but rain dampened our plans. This was the best hotel for the price, that I have been to. Our 2 Queen bed suite was spacious enough for the 4 of us and beds were comfortable. Great shower, super helpful staff, good breakfast and a very well kept property.

    « Under Renovations »

    Stayed a couple of nights in early November. Place was nearly full. We had a room geared for disabled, so tons of room. Bed was good & comfortable. Room was clean & quiet. A bit dated as it was one not yet renovated. Clearly the lobby & breakfast area were done and a number of rooms were in progress. Will be a great place once all done ( ask if your room is one that is renovated. Breakfast was good, but not out of the park as some indicate. With breakfast in, this hotel is very good value. Staff was great. Property is central to everything. Recommend.

    « Another great weekend »

    This hotel is fantastic! My husband and I stayed at this hotel several years ago for our anniversary and we wanted to come back this year to the Port Aransas area. I was hoping that the quality would be just as good and we were definitely NOT disappointed. The location to the beach (about a 3 minute drive) is perfect, the cleanliness of the room, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff very good. The staff puts out the feeling they love working there. The lady working the breakfast area always had a smile on her face. After we returned to San Antonio I called the hotel asking for information about one of the souvenier shops in that location and the front desk person went out of her way to get the number and call me back. I have no hesitations recommending this hotel.

    « Good Night Sleep »

    We stayed here last year,so we knew what to expect. We got in around 4:30. So we sat by the pool in the sun. Felt good. The room was nice and we had a king size bed. Very nice. Nice shower. That is about all I need to be happy. We had a great breakfast that comes with the room. We will stay here again next year.

    This was our second stay at the Best Western in Port A and loved it. The rooms are clean,modern,and quiet. The breakfast is always first rate. Lupita is very warm,friendly,and will cook your eggs to order..what else can you ask for in a free breakfast? The Koniakowsky prints in the rooms are amazing making the decor in the rooms modern and updated. The beach is gorgeous in October,virtually deserted and cool.ENJOY!!!!!!

    « Pleasant stay, but nothing too special. »

    I recently stayed here with my family while in town for a friend's wedding. The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was clean but the floor had that grimy feel that you often run into near the beach. We booked an oversized suite, which was nice since we were travelling with two small children. The hotel is a few blocks from the beach. The walk is close enough that my 3 year old was able to make it down there, but if you are carrying a lot of beach gear you might want to drive.

    I have been staying at the Best Western Port Aransas once weekend each year for several years now and I have always had a pleasant experience. The management is continually making improvements and I love the new decor in the rooms. I am always impressed with the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff.

    Great location: just a nice stroll from the beach or a short hop in the car and it's close to a good selection of restaurants (including Shells, which is very good). The staff are all helpful and friendly and there's a good breakfast. The hotel is clean and tidy and it has a nice pool area. Overall, a great base for Port A and excellent value for money. Would recommend this with no hesitation

    « A great place to relax »

    I had a very nice time staying at BW. We used the room to rest relax in. The pool was excellent to use after a day at the beach. Best Western is close to the beach so you can walk to the beach and not worry about parking. Everyone associated with BW was extremely nice. We definetily will be back

    « Great place to stay »

    The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful!! And the access to the beach was awesome! Three blocks and you are right on the beach. The breakfast available was also a great way to start the day. My only concern was the need for updating. The stairs had cracked concrete and the bathroom looked a little grungy. Apart from that, it was worth staying and I would stay again. Especially if the weather was as lovely as it was when we went.

    « Best Breakfast Ever! »

    This was a great stay. The people who greeted us were friendly and helpful. The rooms were recently remodeled, and more than adequately filled our needs. But the Breakfast! We travel a lot, and usually always stay at a Best Western. Their breakfasts are good, but always vary from one to another. This Best Western had the best breakfast we have ever had! The food was hot, lots of fresh fruit. Plenty of extras, like strawberries and whip cream, or chocolate chips for the waffles. Besides the usual bananas, apples, etc., there was fresh cut melons, pineapple, etc. Will definitely make return visits to this place.

    « Very nice property....great stay »

    We drove down to Port A from Ft Worth for a fishing trip and mini vacation late Monday night 9/19 and arrived shortly after daybreak Tuesday morning. We were allowed to check in early at no extra charge and it was much appreciated as we were looking to get settled in and relax after the long nights drive.The room rate was very reasonable and we found the hotel grounds to be picture perfect. Our room was very neat and clean and well maintained and the cleaning staff came by sometime later, while we were out running some errands and even replaced 2 wash cloths and a face towel that we just used to freshen up. The Hotel was easily accessible to shops and restaurants, quiet at night and the continental breakfast was well stocked and quite good compared to most. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff again was top notch. Glad we booked this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

    This is the best hotel and we will definitely be back. The staff is amazing and their manager Tammie is so professional. The breakfast is full of variety and their hostess Lupita keeps it stocked and delicious. She greeted us with a smile and fresh over easy eggs each morning. The beds were cozy and rooms were pretty. Very close to beach and everything else.

    « Never lets us down! »

    This is our go to spot in Port Aransas for a good great and a nice facility that is just a short walk to the beach along with shopping and dining, but the main reason we return is the friendliness and competence of the staff. They are unfailingly friendly and helpful. The hotel has a nice pool, a free breakfast and a computer center, along with free wifi in the rooms. Just about everything you could want for a nice stay at the beach.

    « Best Western Port A is my Home away from Home »

    The Staff are so welcoming warm and friendly and every one of them go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The property is clean and inviting, the rooms are comfy and quiet, I prefer a room on the East side of the property. The Hotel is located just a few blocks from the Beach and is easily walkable if you like to walk but we opted to rent a Golf Cart from across the street from the Hotel since the Hotel is located so close to shopping and restaurants and the Beach we did all our excursions on the golf cart. The Free Breakfast that the Hotel offers is one of the Best I have ever had at a Hotel and Lupita the Hostess is Da Bomb, she greets every one and tends to breakfast constantly so it's always fresh and stocked, they offer fried eggs along with scrambled, warm tortillas and salsa/cheese to make a breakfast taco, a fresh cut up fruit bar with cottage cheese and toppings for the waffles, also has two waffle makers so the wait is never long, plenty of seating room. Outside there are showers to rinse off before you head to the room after a day at the Beach and the wood floors are so nice instead of carpet. The room is spacious with a chair and ottoman in the double Queen room.with a nice desk work area and the three of us could spread out in the evenings with our laptops and relax. I just can't say enough nice things about this Hotel to express the wonderful cozy fun relaxing time we had during our stay the entire staff actually cares if you have everything you need and will make sure you do have a nice stay...The Staff really makes you feel like your are HOME...this is a 5 Star establishment in my book.

    « Awesome place to stay! »

    Everything about this hotel was amazing. The room was very clean & roomy. The staff were wonderful, helpful & so friendly. Anything we ask for they definitely took care of it for us. I called them before we got there & they were even so nice on the phone with me even though they were very busy. Housekeeping did a tremendous job of keeping our room clean & in order & were so nice with smiles on their faces. George the breakfast guy was another friendly one.....he always kept an eye out for the people in there having breakfast making sure they had everything they needed & he was always cleaning something....he never just stood around, he always stayed busy. Great hotel I would recommend this one to everyone. I give it 5 stars & more. We plan on staying here again next year. Thank you Jerri, Cathy, Tammy, George & our housekeeping lady (but I don't remember her name) for making our 4 day/3 night stay at your hotel so very much enjoyable. See ya next year!

    « " Can't say enough about the staff " »

    Every employee was extremely kind from the front desk personnel to the cleaning ladies, including the pool man. Excellent job in the breakfast room as well. Courteous, positive attitudes, informative and thorough are just a few of many attributes for this staff. Rooms were very clean and pillow top beds were very comfortable. Refrigerator / microwave was great for small meals or snacks. Location is in the middle of everything we wanted to do and easy access to the beach. Hotel is large in accommodations, but small enough not to feel overwhelmed by crowds like many multi floored condo's. I thought it was a little pricey, but stayed at larger more expensive hotels and got a lot less enjoyment for my stay. With the same staff and relocated right on the beach, it could have been a 10 star experience. But good luck getting a reservation. Thanks to all !

    « Modern and Updated Lobby »

    When pulling up to The Best Western, we were pleasantly surprised by how modern and updated the front and lobby looked. This decor was maintained through most of the hotel room. The bathroom was very typical of a Best Western and looked extremely out of place in comparison to everything else. The breakfast was included and provided guests with a lots of options. The lady was very helpful and constantly replenishing the food. We went to the beach in the morning one day, since the beach was approximately three blocks away, and finished our day off by the pool. The pool was clean and well-maintained. It was not too crowded, so you did not feel that you did not have enough space to hang out.

    « Wonderful Service-Very Clean »

    When we come to Port A we stay here. The location is great, the employees at the hotel are super nice and always very accommodating. The free breakfast is good, just what is needed before heading to the beach. The maids keep the rooms really clean, and we always see the caretakers around the property picking up and cleaning the pool. Much better than renting a condo/house that I have to clean while on vacation!!

    Hotel recently had a face lift. Rooms have wood floors and a comfy bed. Rooms also were very quiet. Could not hear the baby crying next door til you stepped outside the door. Only reason did not give 5 stars the bathtub/toilet area needs upgrade. Water pressure was good tub finishing around fixtures seems Wornin down. Breakfast was really good. Texas size waffles, (toppings, whip cream, cinnamon, strawberry, chocolate chips) stuff to make breakfast tacos, eggs, hash browns sausage oatmeal fruit cottage cheese toast, cereal Folgers coffee, juices, milk, teas! Staff was very helpful and friendly and pool was nice and clean. Would definetly recommend to stay!!! Price was just right.

    « Best hotel on the island, hands down!! »

    We love love love this hotel and will never stay anywhere else in Port A. The staff is second to none. Literally everyone we spoke to was above and beyond helpful and kind. The ladies at the front desk were a joy to talk to and quick to offer assistance. We have toddlers who nap in the afternoon, so upon request they had our room cleaned by 12:30 every day. And it was spotless!! The breakfast was delicious and the kitchen staff was amazing -so eager and passionate about their jobs. The Lego room was a nice touch :) We stayed in the one kitchen suite and it was fantastic. Perfectly stocked with anything you could need to cook meals on the island :) The beds were super comfortable, the shower was hot and with great water pressure. I love that it had hard wood floors because we were super sandy! Clean and nice pool too. We can't wait to come back!!

    « Don't Judge a Book by its cover »

    This Best Western looked really nice on the website due to the remodel of the outside and lobby area but the room we were in was old and in need of an update. We were quite disappointed in our stay. The outside made it look like a really updated modern hotel but the rooms were not. The staff was very friendly though. The walk to the beach is not that close , especially on a hot sunny day.

    « The best place to stay for a beach trip »

    This Best Western has always been nice, but it has been remodeled and is really great now. The staff is unfailingly friendly and efficient, breakfast is great, and the rooms are clean and airy and don't have any of that "beach motel" feel that can happen so easily in such a humid and hot place. We stay here every year for an annual beach trip, and some of the staff even recognize us from year to year. This is a great hotel and I am not likely to stay anywhere else in Port Aransas!

    We travel solo or with family and friends a have been to Port A many times for many years. The staff and service are excretions and the rooms are clean. I like the rooms on face the outside because you do not have to wait on a slow elevator. Close to the beach within walking distance The breakfast buffet is super. The food is really good compared to the holiday inn just down the street They have a swimming pool, of course and picnic tables and outside grills. I will most definitely check for room availability here first before any others. Plus it's less expensive than the holiday inn The staff really hustles to keep the guest happy and the breakfast the best on the beach. Way to go Lavita.

    « Nice Hotel-Minimal Selection »

    NO comment, we stayed here for a family trip and my sister complained about her room and they ended up giving her a suite with a kitchen etc. the average rooms are pretty basic. You can tell they got new furniture and painted. decent for the beach, slim pickens where we were at and the weekend was busy.

    « Location Location Location & Cheerful Staff »

    The always cheerful staff made our stay five star. We parked our car upon arrival and never needed it until departure. A short stroll to the beach meant no sandy car. We had many choices of nice seafood places within walking distance, so we could enjoy wines with our dinner without risk of driving under the influence. The small fridge and microwave allowed us to enjoy our yummy leftovers the next day and save some money to boot. I have stayed at much more expensive condos in Port A but they could not compare because we needed an expensive golf cart to get anywhere. I already plan to return soon!

    If you are looking for a place to hang your hat while in Port Aransas, feel comfortable, safe, and trust advice from the staff this is it. It is not a luxury hotel, but it a comfortable stay. It was close enough to the beach and downtown shops. Beds are comfortable. Good pillows, decent breakfast. Interior is well kept. It would be a typical Best Western but the staff makes it. From the staff that checked us in..Chad..he called to make sure we were still coming in while on our way..to the girls that did the breakfast...always kept the area clean and well stocked..to the housekeeper Josie, who made sure our end room was perfect..all were an asset to this hotel and reflects hospitality with a capital H. We left a grey sweatshirt and we were called and asked if we wanted to have it returned. How many places do that? We will be back.

    Nothing like walking into a cold room during the summer on a hot Texas day. Jumping into a cold clean swimming pool can't be beat after spending the day on a hot Texas beach. If you forget anything for your trip[, all you have to do is walk across the street. A great shopping experience is just five minutes from the hotel, great deals and unique finds. When it's time to eat, whether it's a quick meal or a dine in, everything is within driving distance.

    « Nice Stay in Port Aransas »

    Stayed here 3 nights end of July. Great location, super friendly staff, comfortable room, nice pool, very nice morning breakfast. Staff on top of making sure food is replenished as needed. About 3 blocks from the beach, you can walk it but we drove to a different beach area nearby and parked pretty much right on the sand area. The beach here is not like the Caribbean or even the Florida coast areas of Destin, Pensacola, etc. but if you want to stay in Texas this is a nice place to visit. Loved the flavor of the town - casual, relaxed, lots of miscellaneous shopping, several great restaurants for seafood. And the BW hotel is very centrally located. Can rent golf-type carts to get around (we did not) or go anywhere by car in minutes. Nice marina area with several good restaurants. We enjoyed eating at Castaways, McDaddy's, Trout Street Grill. Across from hotel you can walk to a Pizzeria, nice pizza buffet, salad. We drove to see Rockport/Fulton area via the car Ferry, again minutes way from hotel. On 35-Business going to Rockport ate at recommended Paradise Key restaurant - very good food and nice water views.

    « Walking Distance to Beach Questionable. »

    My wife and I stayed at Port "A" BW for a one night beach get away. The appearance was very good and motel very clean. All staff encountered was extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast was well stocked and good. Upon arrival and check in we opened the door to a walk into a refrigerator. The room was clean, very well made, but the ac, when turned up kicked off at 64. A lot of people may be ok with this, but 70 or so is fine with me. Setting up the temp caused everything in the room to start sweating and water accumulated on the vinyl floor. Everything in the room felt sticky, which it took overnight for things to dry out. As for walking distance to the beach, yes it is, but it is more like 8-10 blocks, not a block or two. If you plan to go to the beach, do not plan on waking in the heat of summer. Just keeping it real here. Over all, this is a very nice motel for comfortable nights sleep, but the truth told you will probably need a ride to the beach.

    Staff was very helpful and polite. The free breakfast was nice. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. Bathroom needs to be remodeled and the tub was not clean. We were there in high season but our room was over $300 a night. Best Western did not have a minimum night stay which some of the other motels/hotels required.

    « Nice motel, walking distance to beach not really a hotel. »

    I think you are paying for the proximity of the beach which is a block or two away so you can walk there. I would rather stay somewhere a little more upscale and drive five minutes and have all the beach gear in the car. So basically you can stay at a building made this decade for 10 or 15 dollars more. Rooms are on the Spartan side. Vinyl floors so you have sand everywhere. Bed was firm but I liked that.

    « Great customer service; great breakfast buffet; great location »

    This is a wonderful place to stay while in Port Aransas. It is clean. The staff were polite and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the A/C worked. The location is awesome - close to the beach, close to food, close to a convenience store, close to a Walgreens (or was it a CVS?), and close to two cart rental businesses. If we didn't want to drive the car around, we had access to EVERYTHING we wanted from this Best Western. That's nice! So why only four stars? Two reasons: 1) the pool was pretty dang small and 2) the rooms could use an update/facelift. Not that they weren't CLEAN and KEPT UP! No complaints there. But the age is showing a bit. I would stay here again and can recommend it to others. And to the staff - thanks for a great vacation. We appreciated your work and hospitality!

    Overall great time in Port A, definitely stay at BW again. BW is a couple of blocks from the beach(no beach view). The beds were comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had something for everyone. Other suggestions if you go, rent a cart for the beach (well worth the money), Pizza buffet across from BW is good for the money, Virginia's Seafood also really good! Plenty of beach you do not feel crowded. The beach is clean.

    « A great choice! »

    We chose the BW after reading many reviews. It was a good decision! We were centrally located and not too far from the beach. As others have said, it is walkable to the ocean but probably too far in the summer heat. 10/10 would stay again.

    « June, 2016 »

    I gave these people a call as we arrived in Port A. Not only did they have a King room available but it was ready way before normal check-in time! When I walked (limping) into the lobby she immediately offered to change my room to a downstairs room. Wish I had caught her name but she was very friendly and accomodating. The room itself was very clean. The only real slight negative was the bathroom is very much in need of a redo. It was clean but paint was pealing off the wall in the shower. The hostess at breakfast was very diligent. She was constantly making the rounds and refilling the trays BEFORE they got emptied. All in all this was a good stay and I will stay there again. BTW, just a short jaunt to the beach!

    « Exceptional place and people »

    This was just a three day get away for me and my first stay at this Best Western. The room was immaculate, the grounds very well kept, the pool sparkled and the breakfast was very good. It is well located near the beach and restaurants. The manager, Tammy Abel is an energetic, courteous and very helpful individual. I lost a screw from my eyeglasses and the lens came out. I went to the front desk to find a shop that could fix it for me. Tammy took charge and, in no time, she had it fixed. The crew she has reflects her positive, upbeat demeanor and there are genuine smiling faces everywhere and help available anytime. The owners of this Best Western are very fortunate to have Tammy and her staff representing them and I will certainly return on my next trip to Port Aransas.

    Nice Best Western. Tammy at the front desk was friendly and helpful with information since this was our first time in Port Aransas. We stayed two nights. As we went to our room they were mopping the porches... the porches!! The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. This is not a fancy hotel. But it is clean and comfortable and no icky sticky musty carpet that is often found in rooms at the beach. My only suggestion to this BW would be to provide softer bath towels. The breakfast actually served real eggs with a few eggs cooked over easy! Kudos to the lady in the kitchen for those! They also had two waffle irons which helped speed things along. You can drive and park right at the beach which is easier than walking and carrying all your stuff. $12 parking pass is required though for beach parking. It is good all year. We would stay here again.

    « Great Choice »

    This was my first time to Port Aransas. I chose Best Western because it was rated number one on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. Here are the things I liked about the hotel. First and for most is location. It's close to the beach, we didn't walk, but we could have if we didn't have so much stuff to carry. It's also within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We went mid week so Port A was not crowded. Yes, the staff is very friendly, but not in your business all the time either. When asked if it was my first time to Port A they gave me a map of the area. Very helpful. We had a ground floor room and parked the car directly in front of our door. This was great because we didn't have to haul our sandy selves and beach garb through a lobby to our room. Also, there was no carpet in the room to get all sandy, but a hardwood floor instead. So smart on their part. The beds were comfortable, the shower was strong and the Texas shaped waffles were awesome! The pool is kind of small but clean and well kept, and the chairs are comfortable. With only three of us it was a much cheaper option than any of the condos I looked into. We will definitely be back.

    Very friendly staff! We were going for the day, but the weather was really bad, so we decided to stay in Port A. We all got on our phones to google hotels in the area. We were parked in their parking lot and we decided to go ask the front desk what their rates were for the night. We were 4 adults with 3 children and all fit very nicely in one of their suites. The rates were comparable to the area, service was superb! The hotel pool was nice, pool towels readily available. Walking distance to beach, very clean rooms and bathrooms. Comfortable beds and a pullout couch for the kids, flat screen TV's and a very scrumptious breakfast. Overall friendly and clean! Would stay again!! They have a bbq area, walking distance to restaurants and convenience store and if you like to rent a golf cart to get around the island its just next door! Great place!

    « Best Hotel in the Area! »

    I've been visiting the Texas Gulf Coast every year for the past 24 years so I've seen my fair share of hotels, condos, cottages, motels, etc. This has been BY FAR the best bang for my buck! The price is definitely worth it! The outside looks like your normal small outdoor hotel but has a beautiful fountain in front. The lobby and breakfast area are awesome! It is very clean and nicely decorated and looks much more updated inside. There's a few computers, a TV, a couple toys for children and a wonderful dining area. There are complimentary beverages such as coffee and ice water around the clock. All staff I've come in contact with have been very nice and pleasant in a genuine way. The complimentary breakfast was the best I've ever had around this area. They had such a wide variety of food from eggs, hashbrowns, sausage links, cereal, yogurt, breads and tortillas and pastries, waffles, etc. The list goes on! I was thoroughly impressed with their assortment and everything tasted delicious as well. I had the king room and it was very nice. There was a little seating area, a nice flat screen tv, desk, dresser, night stands, closet, mini fridge with freezer, microwave, coffee maker, bench, and lamps all over for adequate lighting. I was impressed with the overall look and cleanliness of the room. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel! It is a great quality for a great price! And it's walking distance from the beach and shops. There's also a delicious pizza place right across the street that has a cheap and VERY clean buffet.

    My wife and I planned a last-minute trip to Port Aransas to help her recover from back surgery since she could finally sit in a car for the trip. We were able to get a room on the first floor so she wouldn't have to climb the stairs. The staff was cheerful at all times and even accommodated a slightly late checkout so my wife could soak her back before the long car ride home. We were surprised by the rates, very pleased with the service and loved the breakfast as well as the location compared to the beach. We will be staying again in this little oasis in Port Aransas! Thank you for the much needed down-time BW!

    We had a mid-week stay last week. One of the best things about recent retirement is midweek prices and the lack of crowds. Shorter ferry line for Port A, too. This hotel has been spruced up recently. Fridge, microwave and coffee in the room with real breakfast in the lobby. Eggs and sausage and breakfast tacos you make yourself plus the usual waffles, etc. After beach shower available to rinse off the sand. Picnic tables and a heated pool. Everyone working there seemed to like it. Smiles and pleasant greetings. We got an extra hour before checkout which was nice. To be on the busy street Ave G, it was quiet at night. But then it was midweek.

    This place was as advertised. Reviews are accurate as we had amazing service from everybody front the desk people to housekeeping to the lady keeping up with the breakfast in the morning. The walk to the beach is literally 2 blocks and completely painless but if you decide to drive you can park right on the beach. Hotel was clean, beds comfortable, and a/c works great. Pool area very nice and parking was plentiful and the spaces were larger than normal which was a perk for me always worrying about people dinging my car. Overall, excellent location, great stay, great staff!

    « A Mistake »

    We mini-vacay twice a year to Port Aransas, TX. Each time we try to stay at a different place. This time it was the Best Western. It didn't meet our expectations because it wasn't on the beach; we missed hearing, seeing, and smelling the ocean. The breakfast was great. It was well-prepared, hot, tasty, and easy to get to. The beds weren't as comfortable as we expected. The shower was above our expectations, pretty decent water pressure. The room lacked seating. There was a rollaround desk chair, a couch bed, and a bench. Only the desk chair was suitable for watching the TV. Service was excellent, but the facility did not provide what we wanted for a mini-vacay. We've had good experiences at other Best Western hotels, and this one was on a par with those. It would be very good for one-night stay.

    « A clean and quiet stay »

    This Best Western (BW) is one of my favorite places to stay. The staff is always friendly and personable - real people! This motel is not on the beach, it is a few blocks away; however, the road the motel is located leads you straight to the beach, nice. The breakfast is tasty. We had eggs, sausage, waffles, cottage cheese and bite sized fruit. Rebecca kept our rooms tidy with clean linens every day. The rooms had been remodeled since our last stay in 2013. The floors are no longer carpeted. I had to use a towel to wipe the tracked-in sand from my feet before getting into bed. We expected to hear my neighbors without a carpeted floor to muffle the noise, but we did not. It was rather quiet. The TV did echo a bit, but we did not watch TV frequently. We did use the in-room coffee, wi-fi and refrigerator. We did not use the in-room microwave or hair dryer. Overall, the stay was enjoyable. We will stay here again.

No carpet in the room, expected to hear all the neighbors, but the room was rather quiet. The TV did echo, but a very nice stay. Breakfast was great. Loved watching all the children help themselves to breakfast and feel all grown up. Parents made sure they were not messy. Loved the Texas shaped waffles as well as the variety of foods offered. My favorite was the cottage cheese and bite size fruit. We did not swim in the pool this visit, but it looked very clean. We did not use the in-room hair dryer but it had a handy night light on it. In room coffee was nice to have. We kept our ice in the refrigerator and it kept very well. We did not use the in-room microwave. The in-room wi-fi was fast. I was able to do some research and write a paper for class, thank you for the fast wi-fi.. I loved my stay and will gladly return.

    « Clean and Friendly but NOT on the beach »

    We thought this location was on the Gulf beach, but it is not. Finding a hotel/motel on the beach in Port Aransas is tricky so you have to really hunt carefully. This Best Western is very nice, clean, friendly staff and is only a short 3-4 block walk to the beach, but we had requested a "water view" of the Gulf, and they said they would give us that if available at check-in. Well, it isn't available ANYTIME--but this was a mistake from the BW central reservations number, not the motel itself. I would recommend this motel, no problem, if being close to the beach with no view of the beach or water is important to you.

    The property is very nice with a convenient location to the beach and restaurants. But the customer service is exemplary. My wife and I traveled here for our anniversary, I mentioned to the.front desk that it was our anniversary, when we arrived later that week upon entering our room there was a very sweet note and a bottle of wine for our anniversary!

    This is basic hotel but very clean and with very friendly staff; the breakfast lady deserves an extra special call out. The pool area was clean. The room had a hairdryer and because I was cold at night I was able to easily get an additional blanket. The breakfast was adequate, don't expect big choice here. The bathroom was basic, nothing fancy. Strange for a double room with king bed there was only one armchair. If you want something with more style or more character, there are plenty of other places to choose from but they are probably more expensive. For a long weekend this place is perfectly accrptable.

    « Great Value and Location »

    Short walking distance to beach and excellent service makes this a perfect location for anyone looking for a quaint beach town with plenty of things to do without the crowds especially in the off season. The breakfast was delicious and kept well stocked. They even called to make sure my elderly mother could make the stairs and offered to help us make a switch if it was neccesary.

    « Another pleasant getaway »

    We love to run away from home and fish at Port Aransas every so often. When we discovered the Best Western Ocean Villa, we fell in love with the accommodations, people and convenience. The manager and staff go out of their way to provide a pleasant stay and they succeed. We stay two to four nights and always leave with another restful and joyful experience. Folks who complain about no carpet in the rooms need to remember they are at the beach where carpet would collect sand and tar then be so unattractive. I say good job with the flooring.

    Clean room, comfortable beds. Close to the beach and restaurants so no need to drive around much after you get here. The heated pool looked great but we didn't get in. Best choice for us (3 adults in a 2-queen suite).

    « Best motel on the Island »

    As always the stay was enjoyable from booking the room through check out. Well kept property, top notch staff, and the breakfast was delicious. Definitely the place to stay on Mustang Island. Close to the beach, shopping, dining, and night life.

    « "The best place to stay" »

    We stayed that this hotel 2 1/2 weeks, and WOW we were amazed of how well we were treated by all the staff. Our room was cleaned to perfection everyday without complaints all of our needs were meet. Lupita in the kitchen made sure breakfast was always on time and items were refilled until everyone ate, no one left there hungry. The pool was at 90 degrees which made it a perfect night every night even if the weather was a little chilly, it was perfect to be in it. The best of it all was the location close to everything especially the BEACH. :)

    The Port Aransas Best Western has provided us with an excellent place to stay while we visit friends on the way south for the winter. The first time we stayed there we were a bit concerned about being on the first floor in the back. We awoke refreshed, feeling safe, and went and had an EXCELLENT breakfast. We were able to continue on the long journey from Minnesota to South Texas where one of us gets to stay for the winter. Thank you staff of Best Western Port Aransas Texas.

    Awesome place with first class service from the friendly staff who would go out of their way to help me and the family. Their pool is heated even in December! Breakfast was good. Can beat two block drive to get to the beach that has unlimited parking spaces

    This is an older motel that has been kept up in good shape. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds comfortable. What makes this an excellent hotel is the staff. This is the friendliest, most helpful group that we've met. Kudos to the manager for assembling such a helpful, friendly group.

    « Dependable and helpful »

    We had an accident with our car which required finding a shop on a Friday evening about closing time. The staff was so helpful even accommodating a late departure the next day or extending our stay if repair wasn,t finished. Staff even offered to drive us to CVS or restaurants to get what we needed. Couldn,t ask for more.

    Staff was incredible! We needed two rooms but had booked online, so we had to call the hotel to see if we could get two beds? They were more than accommodating and honored our request immediately. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, front desk staff went out of their was to provide excellent service and great information. Breakfast was good and the attendant was there to ensure food was hot and fresh. Would highly recommend this hotel!

    We have been choosing this Best Western for years, and it keeps getting better. Nice rooms, quiet atmosphere,friendly staff,free breakfast, free wifi, computers for your use as well, and walking distance to the beach. We were impressed with the helpfulness of Cindy at the breakfast buffet. We were fortunate to stay in one of the model rooms, as all rooms are being remodeled. Nicely appointed, lots of outlets for your gadgets and local artwork. We really like to stay here. There is a very nice outdoor heated pool as well.

    I had a double-queen bed room, very roomy, clean, comfortable beds, flat screen tv with HBO. Motel had friendly staff, a decent free breakfast, with convenient and close parking. It is located within walking distance (a few blocks) from the beach. Golf carts are the norm in Port Aransas with plenty of places nearby to rent them. There are plenty of good, local restaurants in the area. There is a nice sized, clean outdoor pool.

    For the price this is a great beach hotel. They have a nice breakfast every morning. Very nice pool. The room is a good size with a comfortable bed. Had a slight problem one day but told the general manger and it was fixed immediately. Only three blocks from the beach and walking distance to many good places to eat.

    Very clean hotel; breakfast was delicious. Had delicious waffles and great coffee (24 hours a day); breakfast staff were very helpful and hospitable as were the front desk staff. Hotel rooms were new, no carpet on floor...very clean...they do not allow pets, which is a plus! One of the main reasons that I chose this hotel. Would definitely come back to this hotel!

    The service, cleanliness and breakfast were exceptional. Room was comfortable but not luxurious. Pool area was very attractive, although we did not swim. Compared to what else was available in the area, this hotel was a great decision.

    « booking thru a 3rd party »

    We booked a reservation thru a third party and when we arrived found we had NO reservation. The Manager was one of the nicest persons I have encountered in a situation like this. She bent over backwards to see that we had a room on a very busy week and was so pleasant. I highly recommend this hotel when visiting Port Aransas,Texas. The room we received had all the amenities we wanted and the location was perfect. We will definitely stay there again. Making reservations directly with the hotel.

    « Good value, good accomodations, good breakfast »

    Good value for the location, maybe due to it being mid-week and in the off-season. The breakfast was very good and morning staff were very helpful. I did not like the vinyl floor in the room, would rather have carpet. Also, the bed was squeaky.
