"family fishing trip"

janmhbrewer, New Braunfels, Texas 31/01/2023

Rates are reasonable. Breakfast is very good - not fancy, but made the family happy. Beds were comfortable. Towels were resupplied daily without having to request. Bathrooms were very clean. TV remote listings a bit of a challenge to discern in the beginning.

"Long weekend"

User 30/01/2023

We had a great stay at the Best Western. Room was clean. Comfortable beds and pillows. Pool heated to 90! Breakfast was great. Awesome little library nook. Bottled water available in the lobby. Weather didn't cooperate, but still a pleasant stay.

"Corpus Christi Trip"

Jim C, Collinsville, Oklahoma 25/01/2023

Great place to stay!! Front desk was extremely helpful and accommodating. They asked our preference of room location and met it. They gave us much information about the island and committed to meet any need we may have. Breakfast was outstanding!!

"Clean and comfy!"

KerryTira, Killeen, Texas 23/01/2023

I've lost track on how many times my husband and I have stayed here but the service still remains the same: clean rooms, comfortable beds, clean enjoyable pool, and friendly customer service remains top notch at all levels! My stay was so peaceful and quiet. Now for the customer that complained about a big roach, I have never encountered ANY bugs during any of my stays so it must have been a one-off. For the patron that complained about the same eggs, potatoes, sausage everyday, REALLY! She failed to mention the other breakfast food available-the fruit, pastries, yummy homemade waffles with toppings, yogurt and a variety of drinks, at no additional cost! If you are one that wants a gourmet breakfast, then, yes, this is not the place for you. Pull out your wallet and pay a higher price somewhere else. And let me add one more thing: the pizzeria across the street has delicious pizza, just walk to it. Enjoy your vacay! My husband and I did.

"Best Breakfast Ever!!!"

User 17/01/2023

The location is beautiful & breakfast will exceed your expectations trust me. Like my kids said Ms Kathy is the best! Everything is in walking distance. The staff are very professional, friendly and happy!

"Awesome hotel!"

User 08/01/2023

Front desk clerk was extremely friendly and helpful, answered all our questions cheerfully! ( Dee) Will definitely stay there again! The room was really clean, beds were very comfortable. Hotel upkeep was excellent and I must add, being winter and the pool water temp was 90 degrees, that was a plus!

"A great place to stay"

ronaldandring, San Antonio, Texas 07/01/2023

The hotel is located just a few blocks from the beach. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The staff are great. Our group was a mixed of children, parents, and grandparents so the variety of food in the breakfast bar fulfilled all of our wishes. The heated pool is a wonderful retreat after a day of seashore activities.

"Best way to end 2022 and begin 2023"

User 02/01/2023

It was such a great stay! This is my second time staying at BW Port Aransas and I love it. It's family friendly, all of the employees are extremely welcoming. Breakfast was delicious! I loved that there was a surprise breakfast dish along with the regular menu. They made it even better with the pot of black eyed peas on new years morning ❤️ Our room was perfect, I'll definitely continue to reserve the king suite with Kitchenette. It made it so nice to be able to cook for my little ones!

"Excellent stay"

kathys250, Cibolo, Texas 19/12/2022

Hotel is pretty newly remodeled due to hurricane Harvey. Rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. Breakfast very good. Small bookshop on premises. Great pizza resteraunt across street. Short walk to beach.

"Superior; The Best"

nevergiveitout, Kerrville 12/12/2022

Everything was just a notch higher. The breakfast was superior with the homemade quiche being amazing. We stayed in four hotels this week. This one embarrassed all of the others. Their "heated pool" was actually really heated and super comfortable. The staff were all super friendly and obviously well trained. Be sure that you sekect this ine.


jld12345, La Vernia 30/11/2022

The whole trip was amazing from the guy at check in to the cleaning people they made you feel so welcome and after going to the beach and come back our room was cleaned and new sheets on the bed it was so nice. We love coming after thanksgiving for our anniversary every year we stay at best western and we always have a great time. The only thing is breakfast was okay but it has been better. But we will be back

"The place to stay!"

labeth2022, Houston, Texas 18/11/2022

We were looking for a place to getaway and relax. This place exceeded our expectations! From the minute you walk in the door to the time we left, it was PERFECT! The breakfast had a wonderful selection of hot foods, pastries and more. I will definitely be back!

"Best Hotel on the Island"

User 16/11/2022

The staff is awesome!!! The accommodations are nice and clean, and the amenities are great. Since discovering this hotel several years ago, I always stay there! The breakfast is tops, they have snacks, water, and great coffee, and a quiet library for checking out books or taking a break from the beach.

"Great stay, great location"

jarnold24, Minneapolis, Minnesota 13/11/2022

You really couldn't of asked for a better location than this. A simple couple blocks walk to the beach, or short on your cart, or a small minor detour if you're driving your car for the free beach parking. All the shops or restaurants are also in walking distance which is perfect. The pool was nice, since it was November apparently it's cold for locals so it was heated which, actually was! The breakfast choices changed throughout our three day stay and did differ from what we've experienced in other BW stays.


KerryTira, Killeen, Texas 22/10/2022

The room was 100% immaculate; the pool was 100% immaculate; the breakfast was yummy; bed was comfy, and customer service was 10 star - my husband and I have never seen customer service reps that show care and concern, go over and beyond to assist as these at Best Western. Every employee that we had interaction with was top rated! My husband and I are repeat customers.

"Mo' tell for less money"

User 17/10/2022

This was a great budget hotel. Great value, close to the beach, near the town center and filling breakfast. Rooms were well appointed. Internet access was easy and consistent. Clean rooms and convenient parking.

"Great place"

User 10/10/2022

Motel is close to beach and restaurants. I was very impressed how clean the rooms were. We had a great breakfast in the lobby every morning. All the staff were very friendly. I will definitely be back.

"Cant wait to go back"

User 07/10/2022

The staff is outstanding, the room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was terrific. Jerri at the front desk made us feel like family. We will definitely be back for our next "getaway" location was central to all the great restaurants and the beach.

"Close to everything!"

LynnK1197, Albuquerque, New Mexico 03/10/2022

This hotel was close to everything available in Port Aransas. Walking distance to beach and pier and a ton of good restaurants! We only stayed 2 nights but we were very comfortable at this motel. Staff was very good at answering our questions and making excellent referrals for dining, shopping, etc.

"Birthday weekend"

suttertina, San Antonio, Texas 21/09/2022

Staff was very accommodating and friendly Always love staying here!! They have a really good continental breakfast, the pool is always an added bonus and of course they are located close to the beach!

"The best of the Best Western!"

Alma B, Austin, Texas 18/09/2022

Our stay was so wonderful from the friendly staff and maids, to the room accommodations, and to the GREAT breakfast! They recovered so well from the devasting hurricane a few years ago. We will continue going there to enjoy the beach, the dolphins, the friendly people, and the best of Best Western.

"Wonderful Stay!!"

754jimmyr, Gonzales, United States 09/09/2022

We hadnt been to Port A for years, the place we used to stay was very damaged by Harvey. But we found the Best Western on and the stay could not have been more perfect! Our room was really comfortable, the pool was beautiful and SO clean! Breakfast was delicious and had lots of choices, the price was very reasonable and staff was super friendly. Andrew was especially helpful the evening we checked in! We will definitely come back!!!

"Visiting with family and friends"

M8812GMlindaw, Dale, Texas 29/08/2022

Customer service and care was outstanding! Room was very nice and clean. Beds very comfortable. Breakfast was very good! Pool was very nice and clean surroundings. Felt safe and noise level was very low. Will be back!!

"Our Stay here was perfect"

cmorlace, Cashion, Oklahoma 27/08/2022

This hotel was kept very clean, our room was really comfortable. The pool area is kept up so nice and the pool is a great size. I love the fact that they kept the pool open till 11:00pm, so I could go down for a nice night swim after the little kiddos go to bed. Breakfast was great with a lot of choices offered and it was offered a lot later so there was no rush, and we could just enjoy a nice slow start to our day. This hotel is in the perfect spot, gift shops right out the door so you can walk, beach just a couple blocks away. The staff was really friendly and helpful. This is a great place to stay. We will be back

"Clean sparkling room near the beach"

Carol Ann S, Cypress, Texas 26/08/2022

This hotel was very clean which is my number one priority in selecting a place to stay. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. We were a few blocks from the beach which made it easy access and easy to get back to the room for bathroom breaks.

"Family vacation"

User 11/08/2022

Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. The size of the room was great! We did not feel cramped and the sofa bed was a plus. Great location! Close to everything, walking distance to the beach, Pizza restaurant across the street and golf cart rentals all around. We very much enjoyed the pool and the library was a plus! The ac will definitely cool you off after a day at the beach!

"Family Vaycay"

User 04/08/2022

The room was very clean and the beds comfortable. I thought breakfast was first rate for Best Western. Loved having washer and dryer so I could keep up with towels and clothes of two fishermen who took three showers a day! Easy access to grocery store, souvenir shops, gas station. Love the pizzeria across the street. So close to the beach. The AC in the room worked so well! Your cleaning staff and front desk personnel were very accommodating and kind.

"Great Service"

User 24/07/2022

Staff was super helpful and welcoming, the room was nice as well as the pool and workout room. Also, the hotel is a pretty reasonable walk away from the beach. Overall, made it a very comfortable stay.

"Wonderful experience"

User 24/07/2022

This hotel was very clean and the staff was kind and very helpful. We have a family member with special needs and they were very accomodating. Short walk to the beach. Breakfast was a good variety and good hours. Rooms were cleaned daily and we had fresh towels daily.

"Enjoyed our stay here!"

User 19/07/2022

Staff was professional, polite and accomodating. The location was perfect, we could walk to many places. Enjoyed the pool and the breakfast buffet. The facility was clean, updated and well maintained. We will definitly return upon our next trip to Port Aransas.

"Exceptional Hotel!"

karepass7, Aubrey, Texas 08/07/2022

Do not stay anywhere else in Port A. Walking distance to the beach, clean rooms and facilities, incredible breakfast, 24 hour delicious coffee, phenomenal staff and the comfiest beds! We will never stay anywhere else while in Port Aransas!

"Family stay"

JoeM246, Maryneal 05/07/2022

I stayed here over the 4th this year. I arrived a little early on Sunday and asked if we could get into a room. General manager made it happen. Very impressed with the staff. Made our stay easy and seamless. Highly recommended. 5 stars.

"Stay Here!"

User 04/07/2022

Fantastic hotel and staff! Andrew is so kind and the entire staff is pleasant and welcoming. Room was clean and the beds were so comfortable I had to ask what mattress they used. Breakfast was hot and fresh with a variety of options. Best of all, the coffee! It was available 24 hours a day and delicious! Allowed us to keep up with our busy kiddos. We will be back to this hotel for sure!

"Excellent hotel"

TTrevino74, Dallas, Texas 01/07/2022

Great location with clean rooms, extremely friendly staff and pretty good breakfast. The pool is nice after a day in the gulf and the hotel staff keeps your rooms spotless while you are out. I would highly recommend staying here on your next trip

"Excellent Stay, Affordable Price"

tarapistorio76, San Antonio, Texas 22/06/2022

The breakfast provided was great, I loved the waffle maker. The pool stayed open later than most hotels, very friendly staff and clean room. Hotel was very close to the beach. We enjoyed our stay so much before leaving we booked another week in August.

"Wonderful stay"

Ann C, New Braunfels, Texas 11/06/2022

The staff alone is worth another visit. They were always smiling and pleasant. Clean room, comfortable inviting beds. Nice clean pool with lots of lounge chairs. Wonderful breakfast choices. I would never stay anywhere else when in port A


keksi2k, Ann Arbor, Michigan 26/05/2022

The cleanliness of this place is impressive. Super happy with the cleaning staff - the room sparkles every day. All staff are super friendly and attentive. The manager went out of her way to accommodate my husband's gluten free diet for breakfast. The location is great - walkable to the beach and to the stores of downtown Port A.

"The best Best Western"

DebS1250, Cedar Park, Texas 19/05/2022

One of the best places to stay in Port A. Front desk receptionist Jerri is incredibly welcoming. The breakfast is self serve and plentiful. Rooms are super comfy. Best Western is convenient to eateries and a short walk to the beach. You're missing out if you don't stay here.


LeeAnnPYEATT, Fort Worth, Texas 15/05/2022

This hotel has it all! Super reservation experience, thanks to Jerri. Megan was outstanding at check in. Room was ready and spotless. Rebecca, our housekeeper, was always smiling! Double queen room on lower level was quiet, spotless, and large. Pool was heated and also spotless. Relaxing walk to beach or shops. Staff was friendly and busy accommodating guests. Nice selections and breakfast until 10 was a treat. Outdoor dining was very pleasant. Lobby also offers a library. We considered this one of our best vacation hotels. 5 nights was not long enough. Rates do go up on weekend. Weekly rate was outstanding! Highly recommend and we will return!

"Clean, quiet"

cherylr18811, San Antonio, Texas 05/05/2022

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Port Aransas. The room was newer modeled, clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was nice with lots of hot and cold selections to satisfy. Heated pool is pleasant and clean. All staff interactions were very frie dly a d helpful. I would choose to come stay again here.

"Enjoyed our stay. Nice clean room."

DragonflyNana, Cisco, Texas 01/05/2022

Came in on a Saturday and found an available room here. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was super clean and well priced for season. We didn't take advantage of The pool, but there were several enjoying it. Got quiet about 10 pm which was nice for a Saturday evening. We did enjoy a hot breakfast before checking out. Nice place

"Birthday Weekend"

CRBentley49, New Braunfels, Texas 01/05/2022

Excellent hotel with amenities for the family. Close to the beach and activities, close the the ferry for easy transport to Aransas Pass. Desk and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the room. We will stay there again on our next visit.

"Great place to stay"

Bridgett H, Colorado City, Texas 27/04/2022

Capable, kind and thoughtful assistance from staff. Clean and tidy facility. Neat breakfast with in- and outside seating. Adequate parking space. Comfortable location. Pleasant interior with books to borrow.

"Amazing service!"

paularawlings1969, Cassville, Missouri 19/04/2022

This was our third visit to Port Aransas Best Western. Each visit is better than the last! Wonderfully helpful people at the front desk, and the cleaning staff keep the facilities looking immaculate. We love the heated pool! Also, the breakfast bar has an amazing variety!

"Home away from home"

H3663QQjessican, San Antonio, Texas 17/04/2022

Best Western sure does know how to make you feel like family when you visit and stay here with them ... From the moment you call to make your reservation till check out time... I also requested a room downstairs due to my mother-in-law being an elder and they made her room priority made sure she got a room downstairs with a handicap shower... As an added bonus... Very clean rooms Very well maintained property (clean) Complimentary coffee tea and hot cocoa 24/7 The BEST complimentary breakfast in town Now we know WHY they call themselves Best Western

"One of The Best Hotel I Have Ever Been"

oscarvS7688LT, St. Lucia 16/04/2022

Texas is my favorite place and now I can say that I have a new go to place to stay whenever I am here. Will for sure, tell my friends to visit you guys your agents are very nice to everyone, I am satisfied with my stay.

"Best hotel and amenities!"

Alma B, Austin, Texas 14/04/2022

This hotel is our favorite to return to as often as we can. The rates are affordable, the hot breakfast is great, the pizza place across the street has great food, the beach is about 2 blocks right down the road, the hosts and staff are friendly, and the hotel and grounds are very clean. We love it!

"2022 Sandfest"

473elenaw, Rush City, Minnesota 11/04/2022

Love staying at the Best Western Port Aransas, clean, safe and very close to the beach and many resteraunts, will be back next year! Very affordable stay even during Sandfest. Rooms were quiet despite the extra activity. Staff was very friendly and helpful with questions, our honest housekeeper even found a 100.00 bill under a nightstand and placed it on top of the table for us and told us about it the next time we saw her.

"Excellent hotel"

Polaris1977, Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania 03/04/2022

This is probably the best Best Western I have stayed at and I have stayed at many. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and well maintained, the price was very good, and the internet was the best I have experienced at any hotel ever.

"Pleasant short stay."

tworxers, Pierre, South Dakota 29/03/2022

The hotel was very well maintained with all the amenities as advertised. Very good free breakfast. The location was good with short drive to beach and short distance to dining and shopping opportunities.


KerryTira, Killeen, Texas 25/03/2022

Great customer service! Comfortable, clean room! Awesome heated pool! Cute book nook! Easy walk to beach! Breakfast good. Smiling employees! My only complaint is that all this time I've been going to the Hampton when I should've been going to Best Western!!! Goodbye Hampton…Hello Best Western!

"Great time with great staff"

tiffanykrosecky, San Antonio, Texas 20/03/2022

The hotel is located in a great location and to make it better the staff was amazing. Checking and checkout was very easy and the staff was helpful. The breakfast was great pool is heated and the rooms are very clean! Will be booking again.

"Great Value and Clean"

AnnieDodgeCity_KS, Dodge City, KS 10/03/2022

We stayed right before the Spring Break crowd arrive (Feb.28-March4). The price was excellent for the amenities that were there. There was an excellent "hot" breakfast included(real eggs, not watery, along with breakfast meat, cottage potatoes, waffles with toppings, and fresh & canned fruits). There is also a large outdoor pool that was always heated(nice & warm) and a fitness center that my husband used. There is no elevator, but the hotel is only 2 levels high. The room was nice & clean and the staff members where very friendly. Cindy went out of her way to bring me bottled water! The bed was a little firm for me, but my husband liked it. The only reason that I gave it a "4" rating was because I think the young man that "checked us in" should have warned us that the city was going to turn the water off at 8 am the next morning, until late that afternoon. I would have rearranged my swimming and shower times if I had known ahead of time. There is a book corner in the lobby that sells books or you can just donate some money if the books are used (used books have a blue dot on the back). This was very nice for me since I was able to purchase some books for my preschool program. The location is very good! It is only a mile to the Port A. Beach and there are restaurants and golf cart rental near by. We ate once at Port A. Pizza across the street. It was an excellent price...all you can eat for $9 or $10 (we ate there at lunch and I think they gave us a senior discount because it was cheaper than we thought it would be). There is a good salad bar, along with pasta, pizza, and calzone. Fountain drinks and ice tea are included in the price. We also enjoyed eating at "Venetian Hot Plate", "Virginia's By the Bay", and appetizers at Irie's Tropical Food, as well as gelato at "Coffee Waves". Don't miss-out on visiting the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center! We saw tons of white pelicans and a rare bird, the Roseate Spoonbill, plus many other kinds of birds. Back to the Best Western Hotel: Over-all it is a very nice place and I would recommend staying there!

"Lovely property and great rate."

Tom H, Cranbrook, Canada 09/03/2022

We overnighted here and were very impressed. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The entire property was spotless. The pool is enclosed by the courtyard. There is also an outside sitting area just off the breakfast area. We had a NS, King suite with kitchenette. Full kitchen with 2 burner stove top. Large room with all wood vinyl flooring. Nice living area, the bedroom is not separate from the rest of the room. Nice large bathroom. Everything was clean and well laid out. Two things kept me from a 5 rating. No elevator and we were on the second floor (of 2). This wasn't a show stopper for us but if its important to you ask for a ground floor room. The other was thin walls. We could here the folks and their TV in the adjacent room so I assume they could hear us. We had no issues during the quiet hours so it wasn't a problem. We got a fantastic rate and its only a few blocks to the beach. Pizza place right across the street. Many restaurants you can drive to. We'd definitely stay here again.


Pat M, Boulder, Colorado 07/02/2022

We were upgraded to a huge suite room which had a full kitchen, a comfortable sofa, and a bathroom we could have danced in. Parking near our room door which I love. Pool is heated to 90 degrees although we didn't partake. Wifi was excellent, TV was good. Breakfast offerings were good too. Good location and highly recommended.

"Bird watching in the Corpus Christi area"

Bill B, Crestwood, Kentucky 30/01/2022

Good stay at the Port Aransas Best Western. Wife is a "Birder" and wanted to go to the Corpus Christi area. We ended up staying in Port Aransas which has several bird watching locations in and around town. The Best Western hotel itself was clean and comfortable. The staff all seemed dedicated to doing a good job. Room, lobby and breakfast area were clean and comfortable. Pool area was also nice but the late January weather was cool so we didn't use it. It was the slow season and most guests were older. The hotel was quiet in the evening though at times you could hear some noise from adjoining rooms. Ate at Gumbles on the marina in town. Tues/Thurs Happy Hour had draft beer for $2.50. We would definitely stay again.


MickeyDeefromSA, San Antonio, Texas 10/01/2022

Folks, I have been"trying to stay at the Port A BW" for years. Bad planning, life and a full docket with regard to reservations kept me from doing that. BUT, I finally got to stay there back on November 13-14 for a night and what a blessing. The hotel, has entry from the outside room doors, and no elevators to get you to the 2nd floor, but let me tell you. This property is all that I knew that it would be. From check-in to check-out it was a great stay. Comfy rooms, well-appointed, heated pool and hot tub outside, a BBQ Pavilion with tables, etc just off the parking lot, and the staff was amazing - friendly and attentive. The hotel is quiet, and the location can't be beat - ALL THAT I HOPED IT WOULD BE ! I will be back. Worth a do-over again and again and again !! Thanks, Best Western, Port Aransas for being such a great place to stay.

"Perfect Home Away from Home"

StellaH218, New Braunfels, Texas 28/12/2021

Tammie, Andrew and Dee were great & very friendly. Tammie the manager made sure I got my double points for the campaign going on with rewards. Gave me an extra 500 at check in. Had an issue wth the cooktop in our room. Couldnr figure out how to turn it on. LOL Andrew got on it right away but by the time (about 3 minutes) he got to our room we had it figured out. everything was great. comfortable bed. Had an awesome time. We always stay here though so we were familiar with everything.

"Wonderful Staff"

User 26/12/2021

A wonderful place to stay when visiting Port Aransas. My wife and I have stayed here many times and the staff and service always exceed our expectations. The staff is friendly, the rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. The best of all is that this location has ceramic tile in the rooms. No beach sand in the carpet here! The breakfast is better than IHOP! You will not regret a stat at Best Western in Port Aransas, TX.

Everything was great. Kids loved the pool and breakfast. We had 2 rooms and all was perfect except the weather on Friday and Saturday which was not in your control. Front desk was super helpful with recommendations. Cleaning

"Clean and Friendly"

Boonstra, Leesburg, Virginia 24/11/2021

For the price, this was a great hotel. We stayed off season, which helped. The TV is nice and large and the bathroom is newly remodeled and clean. It is also a quick walk to the beach and lots of restaurants and shops. The breakfast is pretty good, but I wish they had granola like some breakfast bars. I would stay here again.

"Great swim, hot coffee, ultra-comfortable bed"

User 20/11/2021

It was too chilly to swim in the ocean, so we really enjoyed that the pool was heated to 90 degrees. We had a king suite, and used the kitchen to make dinner. Nice finishes in the room and lobby--felt classy. Ultra-comfortable bed! Nice variety at breakfast, and superhot coffee 24/7. Great proximity to the beach and restaurants.

"Best Western - Best place to Stay in Port A"

User 15/11/2021

I have always had a nice experience while staying at the Best Western in Port Aransas. The bed is super comfortable and the pillows are like laying on a comfy cloud. You get a hot breakfast that is great! The location is close to the beach. You can rent golf carts right across the street. It's in a convenience location and a great pizza place across the street too.


bill51kathy59, Surprise, Arizona 09/11/2021

Upon arrival at the hotel, we were greeted warmly and with a smile.......breakfast was outstanding and hot :):) - rooms were cleaned each day much to our surprise, which really made the stay feel more like home

"Wonderful stay"

FellowTraveler201836, Dallas, Texas 06/11/2021

Management and staff are wonderful. They truly care about the customer and the customer experience. Thank you Tammie for making this such a wonderful stay! She went above and beyond to fix a cancellation and rate change error and followed up to make sure everything was perfect. The hotel is close to restaurants, bars and the beach. We had a great time!

"Port Aransas is a hidden gem!"

Pam S, Shelby, United States 06/11/2021

The room was very nice, clean and updated. The outdoor areas consisted of a pool, outdoor sitting area, picnic area with grill, and a sand shower. Wifi worked well. Staff was friendly. We went to the pizza place across the street. They have a buffet which looked good, but we ordered a pizza. My husband especially liked the pizza. The beach was about a five minute walk from the hotel. It is a beautiful, wide beach. It cost $12 to park in that area. You can buy a pass to park while you are there. If you want to park free, drive 3 minutes down the street from the hotel; turn left. Go past the fishing pier. We felt that the area was safe and did a lot of walking. There are many stores and restaurants closeby. I recommend this hotel! Port Aranasas is a hidden gem!

"Awesome Hotel"

User 22/10/2021

Clean, friendly staff, room very nice, close to beach and restaurant's. Not much noise within room. The suite had everything we needed from dishwasher to refrigerator and big screen tv! All in very excellent repair!!!

"Clean and friendly"

User 14/10/2021

The staff is very friendly and are good at what they do. The beds are comfortable. I always sleep well when I stay here. The place is clean. The breakfast has a good variety. For the price it is an exceptional value, hence, the five star rating.

"A great place to stay in Port A"

Road20865889659, Victoria, Texas 13/10/2021

There is not enough space to post all the good things about this hotel. The employees are the greatest, going above and beyond for the guests. Rebecca in housekeeping stood out in September. This time it was Josie(housekeeping) Donna( breakfast) and Amber(front desk)

"Mini vacation"

User 11/10/2021

First time for my family to be at the beach. We had a great room close to stairs with adjoining room for family. AC went out in one room and it was replaced and cooling in less than 30 minutes. Wow!! All staff professional and friendly.

"Best hotel ever"

simpldimple, Kyle, Texas 11/10/2021

Cutest hotel! Cleanest rooms I've ever been in! Pool was clean and not overly chlorinated . BreAkfadt excellent . Megan was wonderful every time I called … and it was a lot. Ha! Sooo close to beach and so much more! Will definitely stay again. Wish I could rate it higher!!

"Solo beach trip"

283michelles283, Bristol, Rhode Island 11/10/2021

Great stay and super friendly staff. Wonderful location, close to beach. Great shower, comfortable bed and hot breakfast with different choices available. Nothing but great things to say about the staff, from check in to any questions I had they were all friendly and helpful. Will happily go back

"Great stay!"

Laffindog, Somewhere south of the middle 08/10/2021

Our first time staying here but won't be the last. Very clean, wonderful friendly staff, hot breakfast, free coffee in the lobby at all times. The only downside was the humidity in the room, but hey, you're at the coast so that can't be helped.

"Port Aransas visit"

User 01/10/2021

On a short notice trip were able to stay at the BW-Port A. Tammie made the check-in process a ease and no hassle. All dealings with the staff were pleasant. The breakfast was fine, everyone liked the Texas shaped waffles.

"Great Stay!"

User 15/09/2021

Took some much need family time and hot the beach. Our stay here at Best Western was great and made our overall trip that much better. The staff was friendly and helpful and our room was neat and clean

"Port Aransas Best Western"

ericcortez, Austin, Texas 13/09/2021

Great location. Been here twice. Room was clean. Pool was great. Breakfast a nice plus. Fast internet for kiddos with tablets. Check in and check out were seamless. Having a convenience store across the street is a plus.

"My place in Port Aransas"

User 10/09/2021

First stayed at this BW 11 months ago… been back 4 times with girlfriends ( I'm 55 +years) and last visit solo. Well maintained, good AC, close to beach, great beds and clean rooms, polite happy staff, well lit parking lot. I will continue to go there -with the girls or solo. For me it's perfect

"End of Summer Vacation"

brewergina53, Abilene, Texas 05/09/2021

Staff are very pleasant & informative. Easy check in & check out. Studio room has everything you will need. It was clean & smelled good. Parking is good, there is area for parking golf carts. Hotel location is excellent. It is in walking distance of beach.

"Great stay!"

lorainepk, Dallas, Texas 28/08/2021

Location is great, just blocks from beach and near restaurants, shops, CVS, Whataburger, golf cart rental, etc. Breakfast buffet with eggs, potatoes and meat plus more was terrific. Nice pool. Friendly staff. Comfy beds and great coffee make this place our #1 pick while in Port Arkansas.


2010Texasgirl, Lufkin, Texas 27/08/2021

Every staff member we met was so kind and professional! The room was clean, we loved the large variety of food for breakfast, and the close proximity to the beach, shopping, and restaurants made our vacation so enjoyable. We also were able to rent a golf cart right across the street for a good price. Loved staying at this Best Western!!!

"The only place you need to stay in Port Aransas."

Patrick C, COLEMAN 25/08/2021

This Best Western is a great place to stay in Port Aransas. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is as good as going to a IHOP restaurant! You will not be sorry you stayed here!


User 15/08/2021

We stayed at this hotel in April and again this weekend and both times they exceeded our expectations. ALL the staff are so friendly, helpful, professional and just pleasant in general. The hotel both times was very well maintained, clean and just awesome. Breakfast is fabulous, tons of choices, kitchen staff were wonderful and very attentative to everyone and the food being served and keeping it stocked as there was a lot of people this trip. Great location and close to the beach. In a nutshell.... we love staying at this Best Western!!!

"Clean, great location, wonderful staff"

891kristis, Austin, Texas 12/08/2021

First if all, let's get this out in the open. This is a beach hotel. This isn't a 5 star resort, luxury condo, etc. The doors face the outside, there is sand everywhere no matter how often you sweep (trust me, I had a broom and swept 6 or 7 times a day), and it is hot & humid. That said, this is one of the best, cleanest places to stay in Port A and their rates are less than other hotels. The staff here was amazingly nice and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful (hot breakfast, fruit, and pastry options that align with a hotel in this price range). There's also a reading nook/area for kids that's stocked with books and kids seating. I would have died for something like this when I traveled with my kids when they were younger. Genius! They also have a little business center with three computers to use, which came in handy when I needed to locate my phone through an app. If you're like us and spend most of your time on the beach or at a restaurant when you're in Port A, don't waste your money on a fancy condo. This place is all that you need and near most of the restaurants. Want to call out some of the staff because they were worth it. Meagan and Reid at the front desk. So nice and helpful. Always asking what can we do for you. Sharla in housekeeping (and another lady with dark hair that was so nice) were both kind and helpful. I saw both of them in the mornings and at the end of day and they were dripping with sweat by the end, really worked hard to get their rooms turned around. Kathy and Cynthia in the kitchen were so busy but always polite. Their cooking was great and they kept everything stocked which wasn't easy as the hotel was fully booked and you felt it in the morning at breakfast. Please keep doing what you're doing. It sets you apart from the rest. And please reward these employees, they are the reason we'll come back! Thanks!

"Great place to stay!"

chandrella, Waco, Texas 24/07/2021

I can honestly say, I was expecting an “ok”place to stay, but it was better than that. The hot breakfast was really good, the service was wonderful and the location was perfect. Most places are within walking distance including the beach. It's very easy to get around on a golf kart from this location as well. I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel, especially for a room with a kitchenette at this price point. They even had a box fan available for use.

"Great stay!"

User 23/07/2021

This facility was amazing! Great staff and clean rooms and common areas. Lots of options for breakfast and great accommodations for your stay such as pool, golf cart parking, sand showers. Great location too!

"Best hotel in port Aransas and best pool and best free breakfast and best staff"

georgeortiz2005, San Antonio, Texas 22/07/2021

Summer trip , Best place in port Aransas best pool, best free breakfast, best staff best in cleaness and smell fresh all the time , I love this hotel stayed here like over 20 times I'm a platinum member always giving away perks and points and sometimes 20$ gift cards

"Nice beach o place but ..."

585jimr, San Antonio, Texas 17/07/2021

All was good except this particular location did not have an elevator available. Not a big problem in my younger years, but not good now. Oh well. we lived through it! Wish we had noted this on the hotel info - learned a lesson!

"Pt A Beach trip"

W3642RAsandys, Schertz, Texas 16/07/2021

Enjoyed our stay at Pt A Best western! Staff was so courteous and helpful. Breakfast each day, nice pool and mins to beach! Comfortable beds, parking right at room! Smiling staff greetings were the norm at this TX place!

"Family beach trip"

joettapayne65, Morgan, Texas 16/07/2021

Our original plans was to stay from sun-thurs but we decided to go a day early. Called and talked with Tammy, she was great. We ended up having to change rooms after the first night, but she took care of it all, even moved our stuff while we enjoyed the beach. Even moved us downstairs like we asked. Trip was wonderful and we really enjoyed the best western. Breakfast was great! Nice variety! Pool was clean and refreshing!

"Cleanest Hotel on the Island"

mb00ras, Georgetown, Texas 08/07/2021

This Best Western location lives up to the recommendations I received about the great staff, and how clean they keep the hotel. Very experienced helpful staff-- we go back to this location on all our family trips to PortA

"Courteous staff and great breakfast!"

User 06/07/2021

Everyone was great, from the check in and throughout the stay. My dad got locked out of the room and they called me to get permission to give him a key to get back in since the room was in my name. The front desk clerk called several times trying to reach me and apologized for calling so many times. The breakfast was really good. There were waffles that you make, in the shape of Texas and bacon, eggs, sausage, potatoes, toast, cereal, bagels, muffins, danish, fruit. Juice, milk, and coffee. I'm sure I missed something but they had something for everyone to eat. The person taking care of filling the foods did a great job keeping up with refilling when items became low. The pillows were amazing and the beds were clean and comfortable. Definitely will be staying again!

"Great customer service"

User 02/07/2021

The customer service is great at this motel. Tammie went above and beyond to accommodate our room request. The rooms are clean and bed was very comfortable. Location is nice because you are just a few blocks from the entry to the beach. The motel also has a warm complimentary breakfast.

"Best Continental Breakfast/Clean Rooms!"

User 30/06/2021

We've been staying at the Best Western in Port Aransas for the last 5 years and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly, GREAT LOCATION(couple blocks from the beach, across the street from the Port A Pizzeria, next door to a Stripes, and a quick walk to Bron's for golf carts, drinks and entertainment.), DELICIOUS continental breakfast, clean rooms, and comfy beds!

"Great experience. Hotel & room was clean, employees were friendly, and the breakfast was great!"

552darh, Burleson, Texas 29/06/2021

Nice large clean room. Breakfast with both hot and cold food items. Clean, clean, clean. Employees were attentive and friendly. A wonderful visit. We were traveling with family and the location was convenient to restaurants and beach.

"Excellent location"

E4206EJkarenk, Houston, Texas 25/06/2021

We had a well appointed studio room. The staff are tremendously helpful and knowledgeable. The breakfast was a great spread: eggs, bacon, sausage, has browns, waffles, fruit, cereal yoghurt, juice.. The hotel is in an outstanding, convenient location.

"Great stay at last minute!"

bc7747, Texas Gulf Coast, Texas 14/06/2021

Great service with a smile, accommodations, amenities, and breakfast at a great price! Walking distance from Bron's Backyard with entertainment for whole family and the beach! Loved our stay at Best Western in Port A...

"Everything you need for a beach vacation!"

User 08/06/2021

Great location in town, close to beach, good food for breakfast, friendly staff, nice pool, easy check in, ice machine works great, daily texts to assure needs were being met, mini suite was great room option for friend's getaway. Everything you need for beach vacation!

"Surprisingly clean"

valveman52, Glen Rose, Texas 07/06/2021

We were quite surprised at the cleanliness of the hotel. The full breakfast bar every morning was a definite plus , it's nice to be able to start your day off with your free breakfast prepared when you're ready to eat. This was a great location as you can access everything from Avenue G. Will probably come back again.

"Overall Experience"

User 25/05/2021

Great Experience, Friendly hotel staff. Clean restrooms in the waiting area, clean breakfast area also. Clean bathrooms and kitchen area in the room, no musty coastal hotel smell. The hotel was close to all venues and the beach.

"Great hotel, caring staff, and fantastic location!"

GypsyRover, God Bless the U.S.A 20/05/2021

Wow! Our stay at this hotel was simply great. The staff was genuinely welcoming and helpful. The location is really fantastic with the beach an easy walk away and it is just as close to Old Town. The hotel has been updated and it shows. Breakfast options were plentiful. There is a large pool area that was clean and inviting. Lots of parking. Great stay. Highly recommend.

"Central to sights"

User 14/05/2021

Large room with kitchen and couch. Short distance to beach, ferry, birding and nature sites, top restaurants and beach cart rentals (a couple cross the street). Second floor room in main building must have been next to building air conditioner that was heard through bathroom wall. Could hear next door conversations through the walls. Eggs, potatoes and sausage were standard for breakfast. And hot waffles. I liked it!

"relaxing few days"

StellaH218, New Braunfels, Texas 07/05/2021

this is a friendly, clean place to stay. Centrally located in Port A. Walk to most things. Accomodating to golf carts. Good variety of breakfast. Friendly staff. Great cleaning crew. Easy check in and out. Had a nice relaxing 4 days here. Perfect getaway

"Great Family Getaway"

User 02/05/2021

Very pleased with Best Western Port Aransas! The location was great and within walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops. The hotel has lots of outdoors seating options which made social distancing easy. The room and pool were clean and the staff very friendly and accommodating.

"2 days in Port A"

roseraeann, Wichita, Kansas 27/04/2021

This was our first time to Port Aransas. We stayed for two nights and loved the location of this hotel. Port A is very much a golf cart town, they are everywhere! But we did all our travel on foot or in our truck. It was very easy to walk from the hotel to the beach or to Alister St which is the main road that has lot of shops and restaurants. (I will note that my husband and I had 20,000+ steps each day). Our room was spacious and had a nice kitchenette. I liked that we could open our door and get directly to our vehicle in the parking lot. I took advantage of breakfast each morning and was happy they were offering hot items (previous hotel was only going grab & go due to COVID). Staff was very friendly and allowed us to check in early/made suggestions on places to try. We did not try the pool, but I hear it's a fabulous 90 degrees! The hotel is also a block from Bron's which does golf cart and beach rentals, but for us it was about their outdoor yard games, live music, and drinks.


User 25/04/2021

It was that Texas shaped waffle and that 90 degree pool that did it for me LOL. I had a great stay with my Girlfriend. The location was the best too because everything from the beach, to the bars, to the souvenir shops was all walking distance from the hotel.

"Bed was very uncomfortable."

User 24/04/2021

Great room and service was exceptional. We just had a mattress that was a to worn we woke every morning very sore .It was very uncomfortable . But our room was excellent. We did not need any pans or utensils from home.


User 23/04/2021

Can not thing of a better a better place to stay. Everything was wonderful. Great room, clean and neat. Plenty of pillows. Shower was hot and had lots of water pressure. Everyone kept their distance, felt very safe

"Heated pool!"

ginahS2268HQ, Houston, Texas 19/04/2021

The hotel staff was super nice and friendly. The hotel is minutes from the beach on a fun part of town. There are buggys to rent and cruise on the beach and neighborhood. The best part was that the pool was heated to 90 degrees! The hotel room itself was clean and spacious. There was even a library for the kids to read and buy books. The breakfast was decent, they had texas shaped waffles so that was cute and a hot tea/coffee/hot cocoa bar. Not the fanciest place ever, but perfect for our stay. We had a great time with family and friends.

"BW in Port Aransas"

AustinMeg2021, Round Rock, Texas 16/04/2021

Very clean room, got the King Suite, full kitchen, plenty of room, breakfast better than average, great location... what else do you need? Usually stay at BW in North Padre, but decided to stay at this one - closer in to Port A. Will stay again - no doubt...

"BW in Port A"

AustinMeg2021, Round Rock, Texas 14/04/2021

Great location, clean hotel, better than average breakfast. Got the King Suite, very well stocked with utensils and such. Hotel is situated right down from the beach, easy access to local restaurants, staff was very pleasant and professional. Wished we could have stayed another couple of nights.


User 12/04/2021

Clean rooms, clean grounds, quick check in and check out, pool heated and very well kept, friendly and helpful staff, close to the beach and downtown activities, felt safe with night security patrolling the parking lot and grounds. We would definitely stay here again.

"Great place to stay"

ljsansom65, Horseshoe Bay, Texas 11/04/2021

Enjoyed our stay at Best Western in Port Aransas. Rooms were spotless. The full breakfast offered was delicious. Good price for the amenities offered. We will definitely keep Port A Best Western on our list.

"Great Experience! Will come back."

User 08/04/2021

Kathy the breakfast lady. Is so wonderful. We love coming and seeing her friendly face and great breakfast. She made bacon for our 9 year old son for him. He asked the first day because they did not have it and she made it for him the next day. Made him and our family feel valued and special.

"Best Western Port A"

shainabransom, Temple, Texas 04/04/2021

We've stayed here many times, and it's our hotel of choice in Port A for many reasons- it's kid friendly, the pool is heated, the breakfast is free and has a lot of variety, staff is welcoming, and it's clean. It's your basic no-frills hotel but our 7 year old loves it and it's a part of our Port A tradition at this point. It's a few blocks from the beach, easily walkable, or you can go right next door and rent a golf cart.

"Customer Service"

tomminnick43, Hutto, Texas 23/03/2021

Poor Customer Service. Was not given consideration when I requested to extend my stay. Would not hardly speak to me when I politely asked a question. Never had a problem with Best Western ever. I will not be returning.

"Very clean"

ashleeu2129, San Antonio, Texas 18/03/2021

Very clean hotel, we stayed in the king suite. Nice room with lots of space for my family. I always wish beds were more comfortable but that's to be expected. Didn't have issues getting extra towels as needed. Would recommend and would stay here again

"Spring Break"

User 16/03/2021

The rooms are cozy and very clean! We enjoyed our stay. It was close to the beach so we could walk and the pizza place across the street is really good! We can't wait to go back again soon and stay even longer!

"Great location and Service"

oracle3281, Lakeway, Texas 13/03/2021

I stay here every time I'm in Port Aransas to fish. Excellent service, property is well maintained, and front desk is customer focused! They have done a nice managing the COVID situation. I always feel safe staying here.

"One of the best places we've stayed"

User 13/03/2021

Great place to stay. We were able to upgrade our room to a kitchenette because we wanted to cook fresh fish and shrimp. In a matter of minutes we were upgraded. The employees worked very hard to keep the place clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was good and filling. I already miss the Texas waffles. My wife lost her earring and didn't know where. We received a call from the hotel saying the found it. Thanks Ms. Charlotte and ms. Jennifer. You will not be disappointed!!


brisacj, San Antonio, Texas 10/03/2021

Loved it, literally so pretty so beautiful great room, me and my boyfriend loved it we had the studio room and it was amazing very comfortable and very pretty workers there were excellent so welcoming and so amazing

"Great stay near the beach!"

TXSheri, Dallas, TX 05/03/2021

Safe, clean and comfortable. Friendly manager and staff make sure your stay is great. Rooms are very clean and beds are comfy. King suite offers more space, sink, cooktop and full size fridge! Everything you need. Breakfast items included, coffee 24/7, heated pool. Walk to restaurants and the beach is 2 blocks.


User 08/02/2021

Very nice, very clean. Everything was newly furnished with new appliances, we can't wait to plan another weekend. The beach was an easy walk also plenty of restaurants within walking distance, the pool looked amazing also.

"Great experience and staff and within walking distance from the beach"

richardrarco, Joplin, Missouri 05/02/2021

No part of our stay there was bad the rooms were freshly remodeled and clean with tile floors, the pool was a great 90 degrees. The breakfast was good. And the staff was very friendly. The beach was only a 5 minute walk away.

"Outstanding location!"

SeguinShepards, Seguin, Texas 05/02/2021

The facilities are great, location a walk to the beach and the staff is fantastic. The rooms are up to date and, if you have the opportunity, take the rooms upstairs with the kitchenette, comes in handy for multiple nights and worth the money. When we come to Port A, this hotel is our first choice when it's just the two of us.

"Roaches and hair bad manners"

User 03/02/2021

There roaches in bathroom and vanity, When stripping the beds there hairs embedded into the beds and blankets, front hotel staff was told and was I guess you should of said something sooner about it. Guest above us were so loud thought the cirus was in town. Hiusekeepers were very friendly with each encounter. Breakfast was old and stale and very nasty.

"Perfect stay"

User 30/01/2021

This BW is the best I've ever stayed in, and that's saying a lot. The tools are large and everything is clean and functioning properly. The staff is a dream team of happy, helpful people who never fail to meet your needs.

"Awesome Place!"

Steve P, Marble Falls, Texas 30/01/2021

The staff, hotel, amenities, and breakfast were just perfect! I certainly will recommend to my friends and associates staying here. Breakfast is great, I would suggest Picante sauce available for the scrambled eggs, like Pace Picante sauce.

"Fantastic stay!"

Storm T, Minnesota 09/01/2021

What a nice hotel and super friendly staff. Great heated pool, a couple blocks from the ocean as well. Breakfast was super good and there was a nice pizza place across the street. Truly was paradise! Will definitely be back.

"Fantastic service, location, and heated pool!"

Melissa V, Texas Gulf Coast, Texas 02/01/2021

The location of this hotel is about 2 blocks from the beach. Located in close proximity to stores, shops, and restaurants. The staff is fabulous! We enjoyed the on-site breakfast each morning. We also used the heated pool that was heated to 90 degrees and comfortable to swim in! The check-in was quick and easy. The housekeeping staff were excellent and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We actually left a clothing item in the room when we checked out and they actually called us to come pick it up. I appreciate the honesty and hospitality and will be returning as often as possible! We've made 2 trips in the past week! Would highly recommend this hotel!

"Home away from home"

stbc63, San Antonio, Texas 18/12/2020

We have made this inn our home away from home since August of 2020. We spend a couple of nights a nights a month here. The property is clean and inviting. We feel safe here. The team members are exceptionally friendly. The breakfast is AOK, as good as we have seen at competing hotels and motels. Kathy sets a good spread. We will be back next year..

"Fantastic home Away from Home"

User 06/12/2020

We loved our stay! The service was impeccable, the room was cozy, warm and inviting & we appreciated all the details the team put effort into. The towels were so soft, the toiletries were rich and the cleanliness of the whole Inn was pristine! The continental breakfast was Amazing! Best Ever! Well priced!! Next time we hope to have more time to enjoy the Pool. We'll see y'all again! Happy Holidays!

"If the floors were clean it could have been a 5 star rating."

FreeTxn, San Antonio, Texas 30/11/2020

First the good. Breakfast. Kathy the lady who did it was GREAT! Caring, kind, attentive. The bad, the floor in the room. Second floor so sand should have been a low concern. It was. I have very low standards for the floor at the coast yet the dirty floor couldn't even meet my low standard.

"Clean, convenient and great value."

bronsonk579, San Antonio, Texas 16/11/2020

The Port A Best Western is our go to when we want to get away. The heated pool is always a plus especially in winter. The breakfast is consistently good and the staff has always been kind and friendly. It is also great to know that the beach is only a minute drive from the hotel.

"Loved the 90 degree pool."

BillT494, Live Oak, Texas 02/11/2020

Saw their sign on an earlier trip. Weather turned cooler and heated pool was a draw. We could also walk to the beach every morning for exercise. Right next door was Third Coast Theater with live music.

"Great place."

User 23/10/2020

I always stay at this best western when I am at the beach. It is perfectly situated. It is very easy to walk to the beach or shopping. There are plenty of eating options within walking distance as well.

"Perfect for extended stay"

Tckruid2005, Madison, Nebraska 09/10/2020

We stayed here for a week in the King Suite which provided us a kitchen and big fridge and dishwasher along with a little stove top. Not far from the beach at all, quiet, saved us money by making our own meals. The room was so clean and smelled clean!! In the mornings while my husband deep sea dishes i spent a good portion swimming at their pool. Very relaxing! Yes We will definitely come back to this hotel again as we try to make it to Port A a few times a year!

"Nice Hotel! Clean Rooms, Clean Pool, Hot Breakfast Options, Friendly Staff!"

ImaRockin R, Midlothian, Texas 12/09/2020

Comfortable beds, pillows, shiny clean bathroom, microwave, fridge, cable, internet. No funky hotel room smell either. Pretty scenery. You can walk across the street for pizza and beer at Port A Pizza, rent golf carts and there is a convenience store to pick up a beach pass for your vehicle. Beach is a few blocks away. Really easy to get too from this hotel. My only advice, bring a floormat, house shoes, or some socks to walk around your room in. Otherwise you'll be wiping sand off the soles of your feet the whole time in your room. It's in the stair wells too so it's almost impossible not to track it in. They still have a limited breakfast selection that includes hot food. It will be served up for you by order. Not bad for $100 a night.

"Friendly team members made us feel very welcome. We're going back next month."

benjamincH4771YR, Seguin, Texas 27/08/2020

The team members at this property were 10 of 10, friendly and welcoming. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The room was clean and made us free quite safe during this C19 pandemic. At check in the young lady referred us to some local places (San Juan and Virginia's) to eat and her suggestions proved to be spot on. The pizza place right across the street serves good pies. The pool area was spotless as was the whole property. These folks all care about their Best Western. The beach is a short walk turning right out of the parking lot and a $12 season pass buys beach parking rights. Walking gets you there in ten or so minutes. The hotel has a handy sand shower right in front. Breakfast is included and is grab and go. For a grab and go meal it is AOK and ample with lots of choices and a friendly server. We are already booked for another visit next month and are looking forward to it.

"Kitchen Suite"

User 26/08/2020

We experienced loud and unruly guest above us during both stays. I suggest the hotel not put families with children above the kitchen suites. We paid the premium but we're very unhappy with the noise each night. Parking was a problem because of the golf carts. Guest with golf carts take 2 or more parking spaces which creates parking issues.

"Super clean room"

Denise S, Port Coquitlam, Canada 24/08/2020

The room was extremely clean. Smelled so good too. Shower had excellent pressure. Only thing was the bed was a little too soft for us. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lady on the front desk was very welcoming. Pool was clean, lots of towels great place to cool off after a day at the beach.

"Great place to stay"

espi, New York City, New York 18/08/2020

Great location, 3 blocks walk from the beach, and many nice restaurants. Very clean and hygienic. The staff was very friendly. Loved the little library located in the lobby. Small but clean and refreshing pool.

"Loved our overnight stay at Port Aransas Best Western!"

LindaTinTexas, Sherman, Texas 02/08/2020

My granddaughter and I spent one night in Port Aransas, and were so very happy with the hotel. It was beautiful and clean. The water in the shower was hot....that was a big deal for us, since we had been in another location with NO hot water for 4 nights! Everyone we met was really great, and we WILL be back!

"Friendly staff and comfy beds. Good location"

cheryl s, Dallas, Texas 25/07/2020

The check in process with Toni was easy and friendly. She was knowledgeable about the area and recommended some great places to eat. There was a free golf cart ride to the beach but it really wasn't very far to walk either. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a closet, a mini fridge and a coffee pot. The bed was comfortable too and so were the pillows. I will certainly be back.

"Weekend getaway"

amys682020, Bulverde, Texas 21/07/2020

Very nice staff and close to the beach. Clean rooms. The location was in walking distance to the beach and around a lot of shops and food. Will stay again in the future. Will refer others to stay and enjoy this Hotel.

"Great stay in a great location"

gkipp, Richmond, Texas 19/07/2020

The Best Western did not disappoint. Large comfy rooms with great AC. Two blocks from the beach. Great place to rent a golf cart and make the rounds. Strips across the street to refill beer and snacks. Would stay again.

"Another Great Stay in Port A"

User 18/07/2020

As always, we were both pleased with the BW Port Aransas. Jerri is always very friendly when we check in. Our room was very clean. Because of Covid, every employee had on a mask. The practices they had in place to insure the safety of guests and employees were evident. Breakfast options were very good. Again, the safety of guests was evident in the breakfast area. Cyndi provided guests with the breakfast items of choice. She was very helpful and attentive to those in the breakfast area. If you are coming to the island, we highly recommend BW Port Aransas

"Port A Vacay"

Great place to stay. Jerri at the front desk was absolutley amazing in helping us with our stay. The parking lot is well lit, the rooms are nice for this type of hotel, breakfast was good and hand many things to choose from, and the pool was clean.

"Great Hotel"

hazelr918, Corning, New York 24/03/2020

This hotel was great. The location I only a minute or 2 from the beach. The pool is heated. They have a washer and dryer for guests at a very reasonable price. Golf cart rentals are within a block, The breakfast was amazing. It changes daily and there is always fresh fruit. It is super clean. Housekeeping is always around to help you if you need anything. A wonderful hotel.

"Great experience"

crydb0m, Rosharon, Texas 17/03/2020

Hotel is a few blocks from the beach and there a lot of stores and restruants with in walking distance. Loved the modern feel of the room and the hotel in general. The big walk-in shower was a PLUS. The room has plenty of space and get around and to put all your things.

This was our first visit to Port Aransas. We nailed it with the hotel. Clean rooms, friendly staff, and great amenities. What a great location! Walking distance to the beach, dining, souviners. We'll be bak!

"Best breakfast in Port Aransas!"

Eugenia N, Pittsburg, Illinois 05/03/2020

Our stay at the Best Western in Port Aransas was beyond wonderful. The rooms clean and well stocked with items. The breakfast was perfect. We were there 2 weeks and the staff had varied options which covered all diet needs of the guests. The fruit was always fresh. Please note this place is perfect for a beach vacation. The place is only a few blocks from the beach. Pull out of the parking lot and it is a straight shot. Convince store, golf cart rentals and a pizza place across the street. Thanks to the staff at Best Western on Ave. G for a wonderful vacation!

"Great stay"

Hdawber1224, Dripping Springs, Texas 02/03/2020

"Best Western was best place to stay"

bhamor, Lufkin, Texas 27/02/2020

I am sure there were other nice places to stay but I wouldn't trade my time spent at Best Western in Port Aransas, The room we had met all our needs. I am handicapped and the staff went out of their way to meet my needs. For that I appreciate them greatly. It helped me to enjoy our trip. The room was spacious with a full kitchen with utensils supplied. Nice big TV. HBO. Walk In shower with a shower stool. The decor was pleasing to the eye. The room was clean . The breakfest provided was great, They had everything you could think of. Waffles and toppings, Hot sausage, scrambled eggs, potatoes, warm flour tortillas to make burittos. Wow what can I say. There was fresh cut up fruitalong with other fruits. Cereal and all kinds of bread products, Hot coffee. The motel foyer was beautifully decorated and nice places to sit and eat. They are also putting in a library for kids and adults which I think is a sweet deal for everyone. The front check in staff were always helpful and friendly. The outside was clean and tidy. There was golf cart rentals next door and in front of motel. Restraunts also. A Store next door. You can hear the ocean from the hotel. Kudo's to Best Western in Port Aransas and their staff

"Clean & Updated"

Dave N, MN 23/02/2020

In the area visiting friends and family; pictures of the property and pricing of the room help us decide to stay here. The pictures were accurate; pretty much everything had been redone and the housekeeping staff kept our room super clean and made sure all the expendables were replaced each day. Front desk personnel very friendly and helpful & lastly the free morning breakfast was a couple rungs above the normal - lots of selections and all was fresh & kept well stocked.

"Great value"

User 01/02/2020

Friendly staff, good breakfast, good location, 100 degree pool, good location. Three blocks from the beach, three doors down from UTV rental, fuel station, Short drive from many restaurants. Great birding destination!

"Exceeded expectation"

User 20/01/2020

We stayed here for an extended weekend. The building shows some wear & tare, probably from Harvey. The room was pretty standard, 2 queen beds, cable TV & wifi, small fridge, microwave and coffee bar. The lobby area was redone and we loved the reading for adults & children. The breakfast was probably the best we've ever seen at a hotel. Personalized waffle makers were a hit with my kids. About 2 or 3 blocks from ocean. Great, friendly staff.

"Definitely recommend "

User 01/01/2020

The Best Western Aransas was an excellent choice for our family. The staff at the front desk were wonderfully hospitable and accommodating. Kathy is the woman who runs the breakfast and it was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had!! She made a special dish for New Year's Day and it was so wonderful and special. And the outdoor pool is heated which makes it a perfect place for a winter getaway. I would definitely recommend this place.

"Excellent stay"

User 01/01/2020

My wife and I stayed for three days, a short winter break. The motel is very well maintained. Good breakfast, friendly staff, even books one can borrow in the lobby. a neat little outside area with tables that'd be great in 70+ weather. The suite was spacious. we will come back.

"Port Aransas Birthday stay"

RGrumpy, San Antonio, Texas 31/12/2019

The wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Best Western in Port A. We arrived on the 26th and left on 29th. The 27th was my birthday and we went to Moby Dicks to celebrate. The hotel is very clean with a wonderful staff. Nice heated pool at 90 degrees. Good breakfast buffet came with the room. Bed was a little too hard for our liking but bare able.

"Winter vacation"

Kendall S, Farmington, Missouri 30/12/2019

Great hotel, good location, facility in good shape. The heated pool was wonderful, breakfast was better than most free hotel breakfasts, staff was very accommodating to our needs. We did not have reservations stayed 1st night in a room with a full kitchen dinning area very reasonable rate decided to stay another night this room was a regular room still very spacious and clean

"Great experience"

Companion25329988120, Taylor, Texas 22/12/2019

We needed handicap accessible and they got us in a room immediately. Spotless and perfect. Will stay here whenever we come back. Breakfast was fresh and tasty, lots of options. Could not have asked for more!

"Very Good"

User 17/12/2019

Staff was very attentive, professional and friendly. Paul who took the time to find the child that lost their stickers. Kathy who kept the breakfast bar clean and well stocked. Toni who made sure we had every thing we needed. The hotel was clean and the beds comfortable. There was even more towels in the room than we needed.

"Wonderful Surprise"

AdventurousJanis, Hot Springs Village, Arkansas 09/12/2019

The place looked brand new. We had a studio. The small kitchen area was ample for our needs with a full size refrigerator. The room was nice and bright. The shower was very nice. The breakfast was better than most for that type. The staff were quite helpful. The pool area was nice. We only had to walk a few blocks to the beach or you could, as we did another day, drive to the beach and on the beach. Different! Restaurants and shopping were exceptionally convenient and good. We would return to this location.

"Easy stay"

User 08/12/2019

Tammie was welcoming and helpful. The pool was, as advertised, a warm 90 degrees. Breakfast was great. Books were available to check out to read on the beach. Room was immaculate and the bed was so comfortable.

"Thanksgiving at the coast."

User 01/12/2019

We had an awesome time at the coast and the Best Western in Port Aransas is one of the reasons why. They have very ample rooms for the handicap. The shower in the bathroom is very easy to handle for a handicap person. The bed are so comfortable we had no problems falling asleep.


arimtz95, South Padre Island, Texas 24/11/2019

Car broke down so I wanted to stay somewhere comfortable. Check in was very fast and the lady was helpful. Bedding was wonderful, it made my stressful night better. Their coffee isn't the greatest, which was a problem, but the rest of the breakfast was okay.

"Great choice!"

shaunad2014, Kamloops, Canada 19/11/2019

Stayed here for 4 nights mid-November. Comfy beds, nice and dark, quiet, great breakfast and heated pool. Close walk to the beach, restaurants and coffee. Lots of parking and clean and fresh. Hot tub would have been the icing on the cake and perhaps a door mat to help with sand accumulation. Great value!

"Best Place to Stay in Port Aransas!"

Michele M, Artesia, New Mexico 11/11/2019

Great staff and I do mean ALL staff, clean rooms, breakfast area, and lobby, wonderful and varied breakfast choices, excellent location, and the room amenities (including the kitchen) were terrific! Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

"Pool was great!"

"Like family"

dieselshakira1, Killeen, Texas 28/10/2019

I would not stay at any other place in port Aransas. Everytime I have asked for something here, it has been done with a smile and a friendly response. Rooms are always clean spotless and the staff is always working to make our stay enjoyable. They are very professional, polite and will go the extra mile. Management must be please to have such a great team of nice people.

"Very nice visit"

jampact, Helotes, Texas 26/10/2019

We stayed here for two nights recently. It is a very nice and clean hotel with friendly and knowledgeable employees. Check in/out was easy and fast. Good breakfast, too. Easy parking was right outside our door. There are 3 floors and there is no elevator, so be aware of that. We chose a bottom floor room and only a couple of times we were aware of outside noise in the parking lot, but never late at night.

"Awesome value for the money"

User 22/10/2019

WOW. from check in to check out our stay was great. The pool being 90 degrees was a bonus. The breakfast was the best part of our stay. It is the perfect way to start your day, and leave a lasting impression on a Hotel.

"Great Hotel"

User 21/10/2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days at this Best Western. The Staff is so friendly, the breakfast was delicious, very clean Hotel. The pool is heated! I look forward to staying here again in the near future.

"Comfortable and Clean and 90 Degree Pool"

D4067HHscotts, Rosharon, Texas 20/10/2019

Port Aransas is one of the most beautiful and well kept beaches in Texas. Looking for a great off-season bargain, we hit upon the Best Western hotel. We've stayed there before but since they have re-modeled since Hurricane Harvey, it is clean, updated and well managed. The pool is beautiful and warm (90 degrees) for these fall mornings and days. And the breakfasts are really excellent. When in Port Aransas, give it a try.

"Good hotel in Port A"

MartinK93rd, Manchester, United Kingdom 12/10/2019

Good location in Port A, which is close to beach and local restaurants. Rooms are comfortable with plenty of space. Some elements of rooms looking a bit tired but this did not detract from overall stay. Good choice at breakfast and coffee available during the day. Great swimming pool with plenty of seating. Overall a great base for a stay in Port A.

"fun in the sun"

User 05/10/2019

"Always feel at Home"

ChicoTraveler81, San Antonio, Texas 04/10/2019

"Great location and friendly staff"

Allyonthebeach, Brantford, Canada 03/10/2019

From the moment we walked in the door at this hotel we felt very welcomed. The room was a good size and clean. Tammie the manager and Karen at the front desk were so friendly - we felt they were very committed to us having a few great days in Port Aransas. Tammie gave us some great recommendations for places to eat - The Beach Lodge was the perfect introduction to the beach with cold beer and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks again for helping us have a wonderful stay in Port Aransas - we will be back!

"Great property. Great location! Great staff!"

kcwcc, Southern Ontario 03/10/2019

We had a great stay. Tammie and Karen were fantastic at helping us plan our little beach visit, pointing out some out of the way places to drink and ocean watch. Room was large and well appointed, AC not too loud. Great water pressure and only 1 mile from the fantastic beach! Hint: to park on the beach, you need to buy an annual pass for $ it at the Stripes next door. Quiet and comfortable with full sized frig etc that we didn't need. It was a really nice place to stay. There is a pool but...there's a beach...a mile amazing beach. We went off season so the place was was great.

"Port A BW"

User 30/09/2019

We have stayed at the BW several times. It is close to the beach, convenient restaurants and stores. The price is good. They accommodated us on the last trip {9-27/29-19} excellently. We had 3 rooms, I booked about a month out. I called about 2 weeks prior and asked that the rooms be close together if at all possible. We had 2 connecting rooms and the 3rd was a few doors down. I had also requested that we be on the 1st floor due to my husband having had both knees replaced recently. They were also able to accommodate us with our rooms being on the 1st floor.

"Awesome stay"

User 29/09/2019

My husband and I needed a relaxing trip to just get away for a few days. The Best Western in Port Aransas was perfect. The staff could not have been better. We even decided to stay an extra night. We will be back.

"Best Western Port Aransas"

Alway enjoy staying at the Port Aransas Best Western. Convenience to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The hotel provides a great breakfast to start day at the unbeatable price of free! Everything is clean and neat including lobby, pool and rooms.

"Great Room, Poor Value"

User 07/09/2019

The room was nice, service was great, but it just wasn't worth $600 for two nights. It's like if you bought a really good grilled cheese sandwich for $100, sure it was amazing, but was it really with $100? I suppose that's my fault for accepting to pay that amount, but I just wouldn't go again or recommend it anymore.

"Lovely clean rooms"

Marji H, Dallas, Texas 03/09/2019

Helpful friendly staff and very comfortable rooms. Clean refreshing pool. Free breakfast buffet is pretty good. Coin operated washer and dryer came in handy so I didn't have to bring home sandy beach towels and clothes.

"Excellent hotel"

Before my trip I read the reviews for this hotel and I can tell you that they are all true this hotel is very nice and clean and the people working there are very nice and helpful is also within walking distance to the beach

"Surpassed My Expectations in every aspect"

joannademopoulos, Austin, Texas 15/08/2019

Where do I begin? As a former hotel supervisor in one of the largest chains in the world, I am very discerning and I know what to look for. First of all, the level of professional by every employee, from the front desk, breakfast attendants and housekeeping, they are truly at the level of a 5 star hotel easy! They are working at the top level in the industry. Outstanding! I was amazed. Then, the value for the room was beyond my expectation. The breakfast was superb in every way! The location is excellent! Walk to almost everything, including the beach! I am truly amazed. I was not expecting any of that! Thank you! Ya'll rock!

"Best Hotel Staff on the Island"

mb00ras, Georgetown, Texas 12/08/2019

I was told by a co-worker to stay at this Hotel when visiting Port A. I took his advice and have returned every year since, as my family does Port A trip every summer. I noticed the cleaning team works as a group, they take great pride to make the rooms extra nice. The breakfast maker shows the same passion. It's amazing what pride and passion in your job can do for a business! I noticed it's the same staff again this year. if you believe cleanliness is close to Godliness--- you'll love this hote!

"Best Continental Breakfast"

User 10/08/2019

Our leisurely stay at the Best Western is always top notch! The breakfast is the best we've ever had, with a large variety that differs daily.. It has us coming back every year. The rooms are clean, and staff is friendly.

"One of the better motels"

2manyboats, Dallas, Texas 06/08/2019

For a motel, this one is not bad. Comfortable beds and very friendly service. The acoustics aren't very good, as one can hear everything going on outside the door. Proximity to the beach is good and the staff have a lot of local knowledge. Very clean, with decent breakfast.

"It was the perfect place to stay"

User 30/07/2019

The room was clean, the breakfast was good & the pool was well maintained. I would definitely come back to the Best Western Port Aransas. Even though the breakfast area was very busy they were able to maintain all of the breakfast items so that everyone was able to get whatever they wanted.

"Awesome stay"

Great experience from start to finish. Newly remodeled downstairs unit was very close to beach. Service was excellent. The breakfast was outstanding, well presented, and attended well. I stayed at a five star resort in Florida the previous week, and this property was equal in service and cleanliness for sure!

"Great stay"

User 21/07/2019

We have stayed here several times. The rooms have been totally updated and are clean. The staff and manager take care of things and are very knowledgeable about what's open and whats not- what to do and where to go.

"Free breakfast and a clean room"

"First Time Family Stay"

"Nice vacation stay"

The entire staff at this hotel went above and beyond to see that each day we had everything we needed to have a great time. The breakfast is a wonderful complete meal. The staff made sure we had the food we wanted each morning. The front desk staff was helpful with suggestions for eating out and for activities to do. Overall the entire staff is great and very friendly and each of them go out of their way to make sure our stay was a wonderful experience. I had an 18 month old and a 9 yr old and they treated them well!!! Will stay here again!!


User 04/07/2019

Friendly staff , good breakfast with good selection very clean through out . Good lighting for security. Was fairly quite for the area. Resolved any problems very quickly. Plenty of parking, close to restaurants and convenience stores.

"Good Location"

jafenn, Austin, Texas 24/06/2019

We took our five year old grandson to see the beach for the first time. With only a couple weeks planning, we were lucky to snare a mini-suite with 2 queens and pull out sofa for 3 adults and 1 kid. Note that this hotel is sort of a motor lodge style with two floors and rooms are accessed from the parking lot and stairs/balcony. No elevator. We requested and were given a first floor room, #148, on the far end from the office. It was very quiet. The room was clean and comfortable when we arrived but we had a slight problem with the shower not turning on. Maintenance quickly fixed the valve problem. Location is near golf cart rentals (reserve in advance!), restaurants, and just a few blocks from the beach. Parking permits are required for beach parking. Rooms have tile flooring instead of carpet. Yes, the floors get sandy quickly but you are in a beach town. Sand is everywhere. You cannot escape it! But there is an outdoor shower rinse station in the front area of the hotel where you can rinse the beach off before going to your room. And a clean, small swimming pool directly behind the office. Good, fresh breakfast buffet in the mornings with lots of options.

"A great place to stay in Port Aransas."

Frank N, Pleasanton, United States 18/06/2019

This place is clean, the staff is more than helpful and the price is right. Every time we visit, we bring our own champagne and have mimosas with breakfast, the staff is more than okay with this. We like our coffee in the afternoon and the coffee is always hot and fresh. Highly recommended.

"Great beds, clean, remodeled, nice & safe hotel!"

erobertson2009, Lawton, Oklahoma 14/06/2019

This is our second time staying here. We love the location. It is a few blocks from the beach. You can walk, rent a golf cart, or take your car. It is also right across the street from The awesome pizza place we love. Bron's is right down the street for renting carts, karaoke, ice cream, snow cones, etc. The beds are WONDERFUL. The parking lot is lit up and secure. I never felt unsafe at night. My main concern was that servicing of the rooms wasn't until 4-5p some days. Sometimes someone would even walk by and randomly ask us, if they saw us, if our room had been cleaned. It never was. Maybe they are short staffed. When they did clean it was wonderful but like I said it wasn't until very late in the afternoon. They also would only make the bed and not change the sheets which I thought was odd.

"Close to Beach"

We made a last minute decision to travel to Port Aransas. Since only staying for one night, we were unable to rent a condo, so found the Best Western which was close to the beach. We were so pleased with our stay, we will return to this Best Western on our future trips. I don't know if we have ever stayed at a Best Western, but we will certainly consider one in the future. This hotel had one of the better selections of breakfast items of any hotels we have stayed at. Mainly the warm tortillas for breakfast tacos - who doesn't love a breakfast taco. They also had fresh fruit and cottage cheese to help me not feel so guilty about the egg and potato taco.

"Reliable hotel in Port A"

lindawY7030HQ, Cedar Park, Texas 05/06/2019

We always stay at this hotel for the following reasons: free breakfast, clean rooms, friendly staff, close to the beach, close to Bron's Beach Carts, close to Stripes to pick up beverages and ice. You can't go wrong by staying at the Best Western in Port A!

First time I stayed at the Best Western in Port A, the staff was very welcoming and provided a map of restaurants in the area. The breakfast area was clean an food was yummy. The hotel entrance was decorated really beautiful.

Very Reasonable and will be staying again here at this hotel. Every staff member we encountered were so polite and AWSOME. I know for sure I will be recommending this hotel to friends and family. Thanks again Best Western

"Great trip!"

Wander25174721767, San Marcos, Texas 14/05/2019

Excellent staff, walking distance to the beach (anything within a half mile is walking distance for me), close by great shops and restaurants. Perfect for our 4th anniversary! We would definitely stay here again.

"Best motel in Port A."

User 13/05/2019

Following their recent renovation after Hurricane Harvey, the rooms were like new, fixtures spotless, had microwaves and small refrigerators. The handicapped bathroom was great and the two queen size beds allowed for a spacious lounging environment. The complimentary breakfast was"the BEST", almost anything you wouldeat, even offer to prepare eggs specially for you. Very clean. Front deak personnel outstanding. Had snacks and drink machines inside lobby. Heated swimming pool. THE BEST at reasonable rates.

"Great hotel in a few steps from beach line"

Svitlana88, Chicago, Illinois 07/05/2019

Just 5 - 10 min unhurried walking to beach, comfort and convenient exterior with a rest spaces, Parking. Quiet. A lot of air in a room, updated restrooms, fridge, microwave, comfortable bed, no smell of any chemicals or chlorine. Great full breakfast. Coffee and boiled water for tea or hot chocolate 24 hrs at a lobby.

"Welcoming Motel"

lmathieuwilliams, San Antonio, Texas 07/05/2019

The total experience was pleasant. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was super, heated pool, not one thing to complain about. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Walking distance from restaurants and bars.

"Great stay close to beach"

User 14/04/2019

Had a wonderful stay. Caring staff. Great breakfast. Stayed a week. If we needed anything they were quick to get it to us such as extra toilet paper or towels since we had a large family staying. Kathy the breakfast lady was always on her toes with cleanliness and restock of food.

"Port A Getaway"

User 13/04/2019

As expected, our stay at Best Western Ocean Villa was great. We were able to get checked in early so we could maximize our time on the beach. The front desk clerk was very friendly. When we got to our room, we found it to be very clean. Every employee we passed interacted with us. Ocean Villa is our go to place when we are in Port Aransas.

"Great place to stay!"

User 10/04/2019

Our stay here was great! The room was clean and comfortable. Cleaned daily with fresh towels. Good small breakfast to start the day.We loved the outdoor heated pool. Very good location close to restaurants and beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. We will stay here on our next visit for sure.


Linda F, Corpus Christi, Texas 03/04/2019

I use this hotel for birding programs that are offered through Road Scholar and the Univerdity of Texas. We stay for 5 nights each program and run approximately 6-8 programs per year. The facilities and staff are excellent. Could not ask for more. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. In fact, it's a must!!

"Hot in paradise"

MrsJamieD, Boerne, Texas 31/03/2019

The hotel itself was in a great location! I've always wanted to stay here because of the location. We arrived late on a Friday night. The room seemed pretty warm, but I thought that was because we didn't get in till late. The next day we got up early and had the free breakfast. They had a lot of items on the buffet. It was one of the better free breakfasts that I have had. We got ready and spent all day at the beach and the heated pool. I was a little sad because there was no hot tub. That is always my favorite part. But the pool area was nice. They do offer towels as well! Went back to the room and it still felt warm in there. I am always cold so we knew something was wrong. We turned it down as low as it would go. When we returned from dinner it was still fairly warm in there. I told my hubby to let them know. We were offered a fan. That would be my biggest complaint is that the air didn't work properly in our room. They couldn't move us because they were full that weekend. When they came to our room and offered the fan it was more so the way they offered it. Just kind of rude about it. It was cooler outside than it was in our room.

"BW Aransas"

John P, McAllen TX 31/03/2019

Great location for birding by being proximal to a number of diverse habitats. The BW was among the better places that I have stayed while birding. This was a repeat stay and I was not disappointed, the service and accommodations were their usual top quality.

"Great home-base for birding Texas coast"

4wildness, Boston, Massachusetts 24/03/2019

We came to Port Aransas for the bird-watching, and we found this Best Western to be an excellent home-base from which to explore the many wildlife refuges along the birding corridor of southeast Texas. Things we especially appreciated were the always-welcoming folks at the front desk; the excellent maps we were given when we first checked in; an immaculate room with well-equipped kitchenette; the above-average complimentary breakfast with healthy options like fresh fruit and whole-grain breads; the easy walk to the beach; and the Port A Pizzeria right across the street (with salads and other offerings besides pizza). A highlight for families was the 90-degree-heated pool (although we never got around to trying it because it seemed to be always occupied). Port Aransas still shows the effects of Hurricane Harvey in the many damaged buildings that have not yet been repaired or torn down, but the town was bustling otherwise. Restaurants we particularly appreciated were the San Juan Mexican restaurant in front of Paradise Pond and MacDaddy's BBQ on Beach Street. There is an IGA grocery store a few blocks away from the hotel, as well as a Stripe Convenience Store practically next door. All the main roads have a sidewalk on one side, so one can walk safely from the hotel to anywhere in town. This town is blessed with wonderful birding spots: the Wetlands Park across the street from the Post Office on Route 361; the Leonabelle Turnbull Birding Center on Ross Avenue (the boardwalk re-opened while we were there); the Charley's-Pasture section of the Port Aransas Nature Preserve (with a path now open between The Community Park and Port Street); Joan and Scott Holt Paradise Pond on the road to the ferry; and the Port Aransas Jetty at the end of Cotter Avenue. A 30-minute drive to the south brings you to Padre Island National Wildlife Refuge, and an hour's drive to the north to Aransas National Wildlife Refuge with its wintering flock of endangered whooping cranes. Highlights of our bird list for this trip in mid-March included two whooping cranes, many roseate spoonbills, a gorgeous Prothonotary warbler, yellow-throated warblers, many sightings of scissor-tailed fly-catchers, a northern waterthrush, and a loggerhead shrike, as well as elegant regulars like avocets and stilts, and herons and egrets of all kinds. Here on the coast of Texas with its shorter trees, it is easier to see warblers than in places where you have to crane your neck up towards the canopy, and we were treated to close-up views of parula warblers in full breeding color, black-and-white warblers within arm's reach, and countless yellow-rumps. For anyone who loves wild places, this town will feel alien, with commercial and industrial development crowding in on every little pocket of nature. But the thing to keep in mind is the devotion that has gone into preserving and restoring the remaining pieces of undeveloped land. Kudos to the people of Port Aransas who have worked so hard to keep their town open to wildlife. One suggestion — if you are not a college student, you might want to avoid Spring Break week in mid-March when the town is over-run with party-ers and beach carts blaring music. Finally, thanks to all the staff at the Port Aransas Best Western for their contributions to a relaxing and comfortable vacation for two escapees from winter in New England.

"Cool day Warm pool"

swainer1959, Aberdeen, South Dakota 17/03/2019

After a nice drive from Austin the cold front caught up to me and was very happy to see our pool is 90 degrees on the sign in front. Great check in with a friendly upbeat desk clerk,she was helpful with a place to eat and warned if you don't like smoke stay away from these bars. Great stay with clean room and great bed.

"Very clean hotel and short driving distance to the beach"

User 15/03/2019

Stayed at Best Western Port Aransas on 3/8 - 3/10. I'm a germophobe so I was very happy to see that the room was clean and looked like it was renovated recently. It also has wooden floor instead of carpet. Bathroom was clean, including the shower curtain. Towels were fluffy so you could tell they were not several years' old. We had a late check-in at 2:00 am and hotel staff was very accommodating. By 7:00 am, we were awakened by heavy footsteps and whatever stuff being dropped on the floor from the room above ours. When I reported this to the front desk, they immediately gave us a different room on the second level. This hotel has 2 storeys so my recommendation is to get a room on the second level. Only drawback is there is no elevator. The hotel has a pool that is heated to 90 degrees so guests can swim even if it's cold outside. Breakfast was served 6:30 am - 9:30 am. It's typical continental breakfast you will find in a Best Western, Residence Inn, Holiday Inn Express, etc. except the breakfast area was kept meticulously clean by hotel staff and the food has better quality, e.g. scrambled eggs and sausages cooked perfectly, not a lot of mess in the waffle maker nor toaster oven. Hotel is conveniently located near restaurants, grocery store, and 5 minute drive to the beach. Overall I liked the cleanliness of the hotel room and breakfast area, central location of the hotel, and very friendly and helpful hotel staff. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Port Aransas.

"Always stay here, very nice place and if any problems ask for Tammie , she is a fixer"

"Get Away"

David S, Pflugerville, United States 22/02/2019

The trip was just a chance to have some true relaxation. We took our time doing whatever was available. Sightseeing was our main objective. We spent some time at the ship channel, watching the ships come in and out. Watching the dolphins was highest on our list.

"Quiet comfortable stay"

tripsters4, illinois 15/02/2019

Friendly staff, comfortable bed, clean room and good breakfast with the usual eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, fruit, yogurt, cereal, etc. The location was good, walkable to the beach and some restaurants. What more could you ask for?

"Big kitchen"

lala405, Nanaimo, Canada 09/02/2019

Amazing kitchen for a suite. Huge room big fridge, new and clean. Huge bathroom too. In a quiet neighborhood. The only downside is the room was very dark with no good window other than onto the parking lot

"Comfortable Stay in Port A"

cynthiarogelioc, San Antonio, Texas 05/02/2019

Thick dense fog outside but our BW was all blue skies and clearly spectacular....thank you to the awesome staff! especially Jerri the front desk husband wanted to move downstairs and I wanted near the pool...she fulfilled both needs...oh and of course the cook...I didn't get her name but wow..full breakfast! Breakfast was great!

"Port A Strong!"

User 22/01/2019

We had not been back to Port Aransas since Hurricane Harvey. Before Harvey, we always stayed at the Best Western and it was good. It seems that they have totally "retooled" now and it is excellent! Wonderful shower, clean room, and a complimentary breakfast with more variety than we have ever seen! Fruit salad, breakfast tacos, do-it-yourself "McMuffins", and, oh, those Texas-shaped waffles (with a heart in the middle for butter and syrup!) Though we didn't use the pool, it was heated to 90 degrees for the January weather. Highly recommended!

"Best western Port Aransas"

User 15/01/2019

One of the higher priced rooms in the area. The hotel was clean the staff was helpful. We got a good nights sleep and took advantage of the Breakfast in the morning. I would recommend BWPA and will probably stay again the next time I am in town.

"Great place to stay even in winter."

Camper40904311207, Austin, Texas 14/01/2019

Out door pool was perfectly warm enough to swim under stars. Breakfast was always delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I like the new tile floors instead of carpet floors. I loved the decor. Parking was spacious. Right across street of best Pizza place on island.

"Reasonable priced and has everything"

ChicoTraveler81, San Antonio, Texas 02/01/2019

I have stayed at Port Aransas Best Western several times in 2018. I love the staff, the rooms, and the awesome Vibe that surrounds this place.I am always treated very well and I know I can count on a decent room and a good night's sleep.

"Quick trip to Port Aransas"

68Stang, Monument, Colorado 24/12/2018

We recently made a quick trip to Port Aransas this weekend to look at the various beach RV Parks for a spring break getaway. We stayed at the Best Western Port Aransas on recommendation of my wife's co-worker. It was a nice clean budget friendly hotel. It is next to one of the beach access roads, however is a couple of blocks from the beach. Check in was a breeze, and the evening staff gave us several suggestions for dinner that night. The room was nice and clean and on the first floor. Breakfast was your standard provided fare, and was fine. It was funny that they have a texas state shaped waffle maker. The second evening the on duty manager suggested a wonderful place for dinner which we enjoyed greatly. Overall this is a great value for the money, the room was clean and comfortable. We would stay here again.

Our stay was so pleasant. Having not been to the area since the hurricane, we were pleased to find the BW to be in excellent condition. The staff friendly & welcoming. Would recommend to all. Will be returning.

"My yearly get away to Port Aransas and Mustang Island. Large beaches , well maintained you can walk for miles."

User 06/11/2018

Nice hotel large rooms with microwave and refrigerator. Hotel right on the hwy quite with pool and hot tub. Free continental breakfast. Just a short drive to the beach. About 30 minutes from Corpus Christy.

"There's a reason BW is rated No. 1 on the island!"

Teresa R, San Antonio, United States 05/11/2018

My husband and I stayed one night for a weekend getaway. Check-in was fast, friendly, and best of all early! Our room was clean and the bed was comfy. Breakfast was really good too. We'll definitely be back!

"Night Stay"

hassler6666, Walker, Minnesota 04/11/2018

We have been coming to Port A for a few years now and always stay here the first night. They have remodeled nicely after the storm. The desk people were the best. Very friendly and went out of their way to make sure everything was right. Had one of the suite and it was more than we could have asked for. We will be back and this is our place to stay. Very nice

"Very Nice Property"

bureaucrat377, Coldspring, Texas 03/11/2018

We really liked this property, starting with the excellent desk staff, right down to the spacious room, with all the comforts of home and even an awesome Pizza Place right across the street! It was quiet and comfortable. The room was spotless. The breakfast was sumptuous and well prepared. The hotel has apparently been “redone” since Hurricane Harvey, since everything looks new.

"Very good option for PA"

Dmitri K, San Antonio, Texas 29/10/2018

A nice and clean hotel, no surprises - good or bad. I would not call this a romantic place to stay but the price to what you get for it ratio yields optimal results for the area. Located walking distance to the beach. Breakfast is included and there are many options to choose from. Our room was average size, the amenities were new-ish. You can actually operate your A/C unit and not freeze to death. Noise level was minimal.

"Really nice stay in Port A"

longhorndoc, Texas 29/10/2018

Quick fishing trip to Port Aransas, the Best Western is obviously completely redone since the hurricane. Looks great inside and out, great pool, staff uniformly pleasant and helpful-even for a midnight arrival! Well located, close to a variety of restaurants, etc

"Great Hotel, Great Service"

shock43, Tucson, Arizona 16/10/2018

The service we received from this Best Western is going to be hard to beat. Check in was very pleasant and helpful. We took a king size room on the second floor and it worked out perfect for us. We got help from maintenance with our bags. The fridge and the microwave came in handy. The bed was very comfortable but a little high for me and they found a small stepping stool which worked out great. We liked the large TV and channel selections. The pool was heated and we enjoyed our evening swim. The breakfast selection was the best we have had in a long time. Considering that this area took such a serious hit last fall from Hurricane Harvey the hotel was well restored and in really great shape. We really liked the beach here and stayed two days and would have stayed longer if the weather had not gotten so bad. Would definitely stay here again.

"Excellent Service"

User 08/10/2018

Always accommodating to myself and any of my co-works when we are in Port Aransas. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful no matter the time of day or night. The convenient breakfast room is always delicious. Very good value. Very nicely rebuilt after Hurricane Harvey decimated the area in 2017.

"Wonderful staff"

Tammy687, Texas 04/10/2018

Had a wonderful relaxing few days in Port A this week. The beach was uncrowded and the water perfect! Staying at Best Western was great! It's close to the beach, as well as restaurants and shopping. Staff was welcoming and gave us some great suggestions on places to eat. During our stay, my husband was wearing a shirt from Knoebels Amusement park located in our former home state. The lady at the front desk saw it and told she also used to live in PA and has been to that park. Small world! The hotel room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast was very good with lots of selections! We also enjoyed a nighttime swim in the heated pool which was open from 6am-11pm! This may be a small thing, but I really appreciated having two decent size trash cans in the room. Most hotels only have tiny trash cans, which get filled to quickly. Consider staying here on your next trip to the beach!

"Mary's Review"

mlbellew59, Golden Valley, Arizona 04/10/2018

A very warm and welcoming hotel. This hotel has a great breakfast, and a very friendly staff. It is just blocks from a very nice beach. I never had a chance to visit the pool, but it looked very refreshing. I would stay here again ??


billyp725, Scurry, Texas 02/10/2018

My wife and I spent a week in Port Aransas, and after spending our days on the beach, it was nice to have a cool, clean room to relax in. The breakfast was very good. Staff was great. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Our stay was great. Check in was a breeze. All the staff we met were very friendly. The room was extremely clean. Breakfast was good. When we stay on the island, this is our place. We have never been disappointed.

"Outstanding stay"

Aloha247, Denton, Texas 24/09/2018

We had an awesome stay at the Port Aransas Best Western. Every employee was friendly and the manager asked how everything was going whenever we encountered her. The room was clean, beds comfortable, in-room amenities all in good working order, nice pool area and the best breakfast I have had at ANY hotel. I will definitely stay here the next time I come to Port Aransas.

This Best Western is fabulous. Checkin- check. Room- check. Amenities- - wonderful- check. Breakfast beyond unbelievable!! - check!! Pool was clean and clear inspite of the tropical storm that has just left.

"Great hotel, great staff, grrat breakfast!"

Phil R, San Antonio, Texas 20/09/2018

This our favorite place to stay on Port A. It's close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The staff is always helpful and they have one of the best breakfast we have found. The pool is large and very clean.

"Great room and free breakfast"

melissahI6241GS, Bellville, United States 17/09/2018

We stayed 3 nights here on our vacation and we were pleased. It rained the whole time we were there so we did not get to swim in the pool or do too much, but our room was very nice. We had a king size room that had a kitchenette in it - full size fridge, small cook top and a microwave, sink and dishwasher too. The bed was very comfy and the room was very large. We could hear our neighbors and their tv, we could really here them if they were in the bathroom and talking. The staff there was great - when we checked in they even provided a map and marked which restaurants were open and which ones they recommended. Check in was quick and so was check out. Breakfast was good but was the same each day. The waffles are amazing - I miss them. hahaha We will stay here again if we go back to the coast for vacation.

"I'm picky but can't think of a single negative about this hotel"

texasdonna77, Allen, Texas 13/09/2018

This is a really great place to stay. Because of Hurricane Harvey, many hotels and condos are still being restored in this area, but this one has already been fully renovated. It's like brand new! There was originally some confusion with our reservation but Tiffanie at the front desk made it right. She was delightful ... so friendly. She helped direct us to good restaurants and answered our many questions about the area. The front desk was staffed 24/7. The free breakfast was a plus because the restaurants in Port A are expensive. Kathy, the breakfast room attendant, always made sure everything was clean and well stocked and even made waffles for us. Food selection was amazing. Coffee and juices were available free around the clock.The location is great, being only a couple blocks from the beach. Wi-fi worked great. And the TV got a large range of channels. We were there for a week and stayed in a King Suite, very clean with a really comfy mattress. Suites have no tub but large shower that we loved. Suites also have full-size refrigerator, dish washer, range, dishes, and cookware, which is helpful because restaurants there are expensive. Hint: Buy groceries from Dollar General as IGA is very expensive. Thank you, Best Western Port A for providing such comfortable accommodations. We will be returning!!

"Tami is making changes"

User 12/09/2018

I recently wrote a negative review about our stay at the Best Western the way housekeeping was cleaning of the floors, Tami reached out to me and we discussed the issue and what she could do , she has met with her housekeeping staff twice so far and Tami is making the changes that have changed my views on the hotel. We have stayed the 5 years and will be back because of the leadership and commitment Tami has shown in the past and going forward. Tami I will be back every year and will bring my family and tell my employees and my friends to stay with you and Best Western in Port Aransas, Texas . I hope everyone will stay at this hotel as you will not be disappointed, and I hope Ownership is so proud of Tami and her staff. David A. Fralic

"Very clean and orderly"

havislaw, Lansing, Michigan 07/09/2018

We were drawn to this rental due to its closeness to the beach as well as the high reviews; no one was wrong. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. They suffered from the hurricane as well but you could not tell. The hot breakfast was very satisfying and offered a wide variety of foods. I would definitely consider another visit.

"Worst Beach Property: Avoid"

krugarcia, Austin, Texas 04/09/2018

When we arrived, we were told there were no rooms despite our reservation. It took the apathetic desk clerk over forty minutes to "find" a room for my family. And, she knew I had to young children in the car, late at night, waiting. She also discussed with me how much she did not like children while waiting to figure out how to "unlock" the available rooms. When we finally got into the room, about 40 minutes later, there was urine on the toilet. This place is just gross and the staff is completely apathetic. On top of that, the rooms are so overpriced and underrenovated. There are so many better options at Port A. Find a better venue for your family.

"Better every time!"

User 02/09/2018

Once again we were not disappointed in our stay in Port Aransas Best Western. The facilities are so nice and clean and the staff is wonderful. It's an easy walk to the beach and convenient to other locations. It was wonderful! Somehow you feel at home.

"Great Stay"

TxMerc69, Gonzales, Texas 26/08/2018

We decided to make a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, and were gladly recieved at the Best Western on Port Aransas. The young woman at check-in was extremely helpful and excited to have us stay with them on the island and provided us with maps and descriptions of many of the local businesses that have resumed operations. Though there were a few minor personal issues, we were extremely satisfied with our stay, and are looking forward to being able to make another trip and stay with this wonderful hotels family...


daniandgary, Hewitt, Texas 26/08/2018

Great hotel and great staff! We had a great time. Best Western is in a great location to everything and you can walk to the beach. You can also walk to the gift shops. Restaurants are close by with a great pizza restaurant right across the street. There is a nice outside pool as well.

"Great hotel and location!!!"

kspicewood, Spicewood, Texas 23/08/2018

Could not have been more pleased. The hotel room was very clean and equipped with everything you would need. Location was excellent, walking distance to beach and shops. Highly recommend the hotel. Have stayed at more expensive hotels and this was just as nice. Staff was super friendly, pool was great, and again could not beat the location. Five stars!!

"Great stay"

User 22/08/2018

The staff were all friendly and helpful. They person at the front desk who was alone late on a Saturday afternoon took the time to set up the lift so I could get my quadriplegic daughter in the pool even calling the maintenance man to make sure all was done correctly and doing it all with a smile Breakfast was awesome Located in a good location close to the beach and near places to shop and eat

"Clean room and great breakfast "

User 12/08/2018

Stayed here several years ago and was worried rooms would show wear. Rooms are still clean and updated. Staff was helpful and breakfast room and area all clean. Will stay again. Easy access to the beach maybe half mile down the street.

"Back in Port A"

162sybilh, Austin 07/08/2018

I just visited Port Aransas and stayed for the second time at the Best Western. It is good to see the island back and hopping almost a year after the devastating Hurricane Harvey. The manager is very hands on and is very personable. The breakfast buffet was plentiful. The pool was clean and enjoyable. Our room was clean and well appointed. We loved the artwork on the walls. Great place to stay ! Keep it up!

My wife and I just spent two nights at this very well maintained Best Western in Port Aransas, Texas. This is a well-established property, and we've stayed here several times in past years. Well maintained with attractive, comfortable, and clean rooms. All the usual Best Western amenities. Very nice complimentary breakfast 7 days a week. Lovely pool area for relaxation. Convenient complimentary off-street parking right in front of your room. Reserve early, as this hotel is heavily booked, especially during the busy tourist season. Recommended!

peachintx, Flower Mound, Texas 21/06/2018

They have done a wonderful job updating the hotel after Hurricane Harvey. The rooms were nicely decorated, clean and the beds were so comfortable The staff was so friendly and always checking to see if we needed anything. The breakfast was great and plenty of options for my family. It is located within walking distance to the beach, a gas station with drinks, restaurants and anything you could need. This will be our go to hotel in Port Aransas and highly recommend it to anyone vacationing there.

They have done a great job restoring their hotel after Hurricane Harvey. Everything has been updated and was a great place to stay- slept well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the best I have ever had outside of an all inclusive resort- fresh fruit, eggs, sausage, assorted breads, waffles, etc. They gave us a map showing where the places were that were open- a nice touch.

V L, Norman, Oklahoma 12/06/2018

Staff, rooms, and amenities are first-rate, and make for a comfortable stay. Ten minute walk door-to-waves. The copious breakfast buffet has variety to please everybody and is replenished constantly. Efficiency and the well-being of guests are top priorities. The nearby beach has lifeguards. A pizza restaurant (with its own buffet) and a convenience store are across the street.

"Amazingly nice staff"

reviewer613, Usa, Japan 17/05/2018

I don't typically stay at BW hotels (except in Europe). I am normally at Marriotts, Hiltons, etc. But I may try out another BW based on my experience here. Some of the nicest staff members I have ever encountered in years of travelling. The front desk people were just great. The property is nice, the rooms clean, and the hotel is just a few blocks from the beach.

"Quick trip to the beach"

User 14/05/2018

We stay at this location often when visiting Port A. It's always clean and neat in appearance. The hotel staff and management were helpful and accommodating. The location is near the beach and cart rentals which is very convenient!


User 14/05/2018

Great property, great location, nice and clean, good breakfast, showers, grill, pool, super friendly staff. Will definitely go back again. Cant be beat. Great value, lots of shopping nearby. Super good.

"Family getaway "

C4418YUjenniferc, Saint Cloud, Minnesota 04/05/2018

We spent 2 nights here as part of our Texas family road trip. I didn't think the mattresses were very comfortable but most places I stay I could say the same thing. This is motel style, not having an elevator gave us a little extra workout carrying luggage but nothing that we couldn't handle. Our room was very clean and big enough to fit all of our luggage, including a jogging stroller and huge cooler; plus 2 adults and 2 children. The pool was heated to 90° and it was perfect! It's a great walking distance from the beach! About a 10 minute walk is all! The breakfast, in my opinion, is the best part!! Best breakfast at a hotel I've ever had! I'd definitely bring my family back to this hotel!!


Frank N, Pleasanton, United States 02/05/2018

Went to Port Aransas to celebrate our 52nd wedding anniversary, we go every year. A nice place, comfortable and very relaxing. Was surprised to have the 2018 SandFest in progress and looked at all the sand carvings on the beach, what an experience.

"Best Western in Port Aransas"

chardalyn2018, Cedar Park, Texas 23/04/2018

Excellent choice for value and service. The staff was the most professional I have experienced in all of my travels. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in Port A. Rooms had microwave and a small refrigerator which was perfect.

"business trip"

User 20/04/2018

Hotel was perfect for my needs. Good location, lovely staff and clean. Breakfast was good and a nice selection. Appreciated the help the front desk was able to provide and they were friendly. Would stay here again.


User 11/04/2018

This hotel tries its best and manages mediocrity with flair. Paid $150 a night and was met with my neighbors smoking cigarettes on the veranda and a somewhat shady clientele at the breakfast table. Head ed up to the beach for a view of the oil rigs and came back with a film of industrial oil on our feet. The beach was covered in trash and my son had his jacket stolen on a dolphin trip. To be fair, the hotel does its best but I can't say we had fun here. Grim.

"Great hotel!"

gobucky2016, Madison, Wisconsin 05/04/2018

The rooms were large, and the kitchenettes were fantastic. The staff were incredibly friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was great! The pool is heated, which made it a great way to relax after a day on the beach. The hotel is in a great location - a few blocks from the beach, a block or two from cart rentals and shopping, and there is a pizzeria across the street with a nice, affordable buffet for dinner. The views from the balconies are nice, overlooking beach houses but also able to see the sun rise in the morning. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable stay near the beach.

"fun at the beach"

User 04/04/2018

The staff at the front desk were very friendly we were greeted each time we walked in. The location of this hotel was excellent for the beach. We also did some fishing and this is an easy place to come and go. I will definitely stay here next trip to Port Aransas.

"Great experience!"

Kai I, Boise, Idaho 04/04/2018

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. The entire staff was friendly, professional and responsive. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was perfect. We would definitely stay here again!

"Great hotel!"

Alan W, Bristol, United Kingdom 03/04/2018

Clean, modern and staff very helpful! I am so glad I chose this hotel. Great location, room size is great and bed is huge (as I type this my partner is miles away). We are on our 11th night of our US trip and this is in our top 3 hotels so far. Coffee machine was a great welcome, the pool was 90 degrees, we parked right outside our room, neighbours couldn't be heard...all good! Well worth a few extra dollars to stay here!!

"Great Stay"

User 02/04/2018

Great stay. Close to everything and the staff is on point. The entire place was very clean and well maintained. Our only complaint was a lack of parking when everyone has a golf cart rented for the weekend. Will stay again.

"Great Place to Stat"

Mary S, Bellevue 28/03/2018

The hotel rooms, staff and location were all excellent. Port Aransas was a lovely vacation/beach town and the people were all very friendly. This hotel has made a great come back after the hurricane and was a wonderful place to stay.

"90 degree pool!!"

tupperconnie, White Bear Lake, Minnesota 28/03/2018

We loved this hotel! Just a short walk to the beach or rent a golf cart to get around. Easy walking distance to great restaurants and shopping, too. There is a nice grilling area, out of the wind, complete with picnic tables. The pool was spotless, nice size and heated to 90 degrees!! The rooms are very clean and spacious. The breakfast was good, I loved the Texas shaped waffles! The staff were all friendly and very accommodating.

"really nice"

Great job all around. Great location. Clean rooms and friendly staff. We have stayed here several years in a row. Fast internet. Pool is heated to 90 degrees (so warm)!!! Loved our stay here. Go to Port A Pizzeria across the street if you stay here!

Clean place to stay. Good breakfast. Close to the beach. Pizza restaurant right across and gas station close. Great location.. Friendly staff.I would definitely stay here again on my next trip. Everyone was nice.

"Clean place to stay"

McGehee1, Bruceville, Texas 13/03/2018

Enjoyed the professional service and promptness from the employees. Rooms are very clean and plenty of towels for everyone. The pool is very clean and a pleasant place to enjoy on a late evening. I will stay here again for another girls weekend trip!

"Not totally dissappointed"

janellesummers, Springtown, Texas 09/03/2018

Chose this hotel due to hurricane taking out our favorite condo, they rented a room that was not completely finished out, room never cooled off even turning down to 60. Walls too thin, heard neighbors TV and snoring all three nights we were there.

"Recovering well from Hurricane Harvey"

Lambo48, Warwick, England 03/03/2018

When you consider the damage to the town from Harvey, it is impressive that this hotel is up and running and able to provide refurbished rooms and breakfast in a temporary area. Overall was as expected. We would prefer real plates and cutlery for our breakfast but realise that is increasingly the norm in the USA.

"Still recovering from Hurricane Harvey"

User 03/03/2018

Open for business when many places are still not after Hurricane Harvey. Bottom floor rooms still being worked on. Upstairs room was good. Saw a big pallet of mini-refrigerators being delivered so they are getting there. Heated pool was open. Breakfast still good.

"Recovery continuing"

jp3469, Bullhead City, Arizona 25/02/2018

My trip to Texas included two days in Port Aransas, looking for whooping cranes. I chose to stay at the Best Western based on prior good experiences with the brand. I was pleased to find this property was open and continuing to recover while providing a comfortable and clean place for guests to stay. The lobby is currently undergoing renovations but check in was handled easily in a temporary office that was easy to find. My room looked new, was clean and comfortable, with TV, refrigerator, small freezer, coffee maker, microwave and free wifi. Breakfast was available, the usual morning fare. I would stay here again if in the area. Good restaurants nearby.

"Almost finished renovation 2018-2"

Okhobieman, Onalaska, Texas 21/02/2018

One of the few hotels open on the island. Clean, new rooms. Still loud unit air conditioners. Sheets new. Hot water did not stop! All furniture new. Pool clean and cool temperature. One room is used for breakfast . Coffee maker new... icebox too. Breakfast very good. Clean, with attendant present. Newspaper on tables. Fresh fruit, eggs, tacos, waffles, bagels. Etc. the attendant was very attentive and the place was clean. Coffee good.

"Great Accommodations for a trip to Port Aransas and the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico"

Daytexas, Georgetown, Texas 17/02/2018

Best Western Port Aransas is recovering from hurricane Harvey and is open for business. The hotel has completed major repairs. A few cosmetic details are being addressed; the lobby is still under renovation, watch for signs pointing the way to the temporary front desk. Our room was in tip top shape; comfortable and fresh. The heated 90 degree outdoor pool is a nice benefit on still slightly chilly February days. The complimentary breakfast is outstanding, Cathy does a great job keeping the buffet fresh. The staff is very pleasant and efficient, making a stay in this hotel a top notch experience. As for Port A, as of mid February, there is still lots of repair work going on. Most of the major storm damage has been cleared. Many restaurants and gas stations, important for travelers, are open. Shells, a nice restaurant we enjoy that is down the street from the Best Western, is open. And of course, the primary reason for travelers to head for Port Aransas in the first place, the Gulf of Mexico and its beaches, is definitely open.

"Good for the price"

User 04/02/2018

Cant complain. Everything was in good shape. Bed was clean. Bathroom was clean. Very nice. modern. Will definitely start using them more often. Close to the beach as well !! Good places to eat and drink are also nearby.

"GREAT Customer Service!"

Dt J, Austin 02/02/2018

We had booked a single night as we were on the island for business. We finished early in the day and called to ask about possibility of cancelling the reservation, when by all rights they could have held us to the full reservation charge. The manger not only let us cancel but also waived the cancellation fee! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. Will get all my business and referrals!

"Great hotel - within walking distance to beach"

Audrey B, Dallas, Texas, United States 22/01/2018

This was a great hotel. We walked to the beach (it's a little bit of a walk) but we made it. It was very quiet and friendly. The pool is average size for a hotel but could have been a little bigger for the size of hotel it is. But, we enjoyed it.

"Support Port A"

laker46, Pepin, Wisconsin 30/12/2017

Best Western provides all the comforts and up to date style in lodging. They are working hard to recover from the hurricane. Delicious breakfast .. friendly, helpful staff. Walk to the beach. Highly recommend.

"Port A Strong"

MLK-NT, Austin, Texas 26/12/2017

Port A. is slowly returning to normal and this was a comfortable place to stay over Christmas. Our room was freshly remodeled since the hurricane. It looked and smelled clean. The buffet breakfast was the best I've seen in a hotel in this price range.

"Great Stay"

Pam J, Anderson, Tx 17/12/2017

Friends/birthday/girl's weekend outting...was nervous about staying in the area due to the devastating Hurricane Harvey, but was pleasantly surprised. Very clean & comfortable. Would consider staying here again.

"Amazing Recovery"

D1557BWdavidf, Waco, Texas 26/11/2017

We had a great experience here. Considering the hurricane came through here 3 months ago, they have almost completely recovered. The breakfast was an exceptional treat: eggs, sausage, waffles, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, etc. Staff were super friendly and helpful. We will return here in the future!

"A great place to stay in Port A"

N4940BXjenniferm, Frisco, United States 25/11/2017

Friendly, accommodating staff. Walking distance from the beach. Easy to get to other parts of the city. The city is still recovering from Hurricane Harvey, but the hotel is being redone and the rooms are great.

"Wonderful stay!"

User 17/11/2017

We just had a wonderful stay at the Best Western in Port Aransas. The hotel was in great shape after the hurricane and all of the staff was so friendly! The breakfast was really nice and well stocked with many choices. We look forward to another stay here in the future.

"Nice visit"

nannyg264, San Antonio, Texas 17/11/2017

The hotel is one of three that is open after the hurricane. They have done an amazing job of getting the hotel in shape for guests. Is it back to normal? No, the office is in a little side room, the breakfast room is accessed through another side door, the pool is still be repaired. But none of this interfered with our visit. The rooms are all newly repaired and lacking for nothing. The breakfast is great, with all of the usual choices. The wifi worked well at all times. Best of all, every employee is friendly, helpful, and so upbeat in spite of all they are dealing with.

"Relaxing Visit"

Rosemarie R, Austin, United States 16/11/2017

Even tho it's only been 6 weeks since Hurricane Harvey hit Port Aransas & Texas Coast. The GM, Tammie and all her employees are doing the best to fix the damage and are open for business for all the customers to come visit and stay at Best Western. It is sad to see the damage to the town and the BW, but everyone is positive and looking ahead to Port A. getting back on it's feet.

"A restful weekend"

monnabeth, Temple, Texas 15/11/2017

I stayed at the Port Aransas Best Western this past weekend and was throughly satisifed. Yes it's being renovated after 2-3 feet of water came into the first floor rooms, but they are working hard to get everything fixed. Everything worked, and the employees were all super nice. The bed was very comfortable, and I was more than happy with the entire experience.

"Under construction due to hurricane damage"

johntf782, San Antonio, United States 14/11/2017

Due to hurricane damage this hotel is under construction. I thought that when they rented me a room it would be one that was completely repaired. However, the first floor room that I was sent to had no baseboards, was not completely painted and had three large holes in the bathroom wall. The manager did offer to give me my money back or move me to the second floor. It was after dark and not a good time for two women to be looking around for another hotel. I didn't trust that the second floor room would be any better that the first floor room. If you want a nice room for a special vacation, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

BW_Port_Aransas, Owner at BEST WESTERN Port Aransas, responded to this review
Our Best Western fared well from the 130+ MPH winds of Hurricane Harvey on August 25th, but took 6 inches of water from the storm surge in our downstairs rooms and lobby. It has been a very busy and productive two and a half months for our community. Our amazing staff has kept the hotel going, prepared the facilities for our regular guests, and volunteered within the community to clean schools and churches, all while dealing with their own damaged homes and challenges. Seven days after the storm, AEP restored electricity to the hotel and moved their contractors into our 22 undamaged upstairs rooms while they worked on the rest of the island. Since then, we have hosted Spectrum, Centurylink, and other contractors, as well as locals who are trying to get back into their homes. Before the storm, we had contractors on site finishing up our 10 new King Studio Kitchen Suites, so they stayed on and began cleaning up downed trees and washed up debris even before we had power. We have made tremendous progress, and on November 1st, we began renting our restored downstairs rooms. While we have already started renting the downstairs rooms, we are still working to complete baseboards and touch-ups after stripping the rooms to the studs and rebuilding, and we are waiting for replacement dressers. We are working out of a small office in front of the hotel, and 49 guest rooms and our breakfast room are now open. The pool is being re-plastered, and our 90-degree heated pool will be open by Thanksgiving. By the end of the year, we expect to have all 59 rooms and our lobby back, and by Spring, I expect all construction activity at the hotel to be complete. I encourage anyone planning to visit to give us a call at 361-749-3010 to get an up-to-date status and to visit the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce website to see which businesses have re-opened. While construction is going on in nearly every building and home on the island, there are already nearly a dozen restaurants open, fishing charters are going out, and the beach is always beautiful in the fall and winter. I apologize to anyone who has booked without receiving clear expectations of conditions before arriving. Sincerely, Vince Vanorman, Owner

"The up stairs rooms are open. I had a fantastic stay even under current conditions."

WBWII, San Antonio, Texas 09/11/2017

This was my first but not last stay with BW in PA. I will remain a loyal client. The place even after Harvey has cleaned up well. The rooms are very nice and the entire downstairs rooms will be brand new once finished. The staff is great and most accommodating. If you have been down here since Harvey you will understand it is not easy but getting better every day.

"They are open for business"

Cindy B, Jefferson, Texas 09/11/2017

We just stayed in Port Aransas. It was awesome to see that the Best Western was open. They were very very nice. We stayed in room 258 and it was one of the nicest rooms we have ever been in. The staff was amazing. We've never stayed at this best Western but we will go back. Thank y'all for a wonderful stay. The place looks great.

"hope everyone is o k"

otcatshop, Albuquerque, New Mexico 31/08/2017

We stay here for the crane festival and every time we come down to bird. We hope all the people are ok and we will be back when things are up and going. We have not seen any photos of the area but we are heart sick and are praying for you all.

"Great place"

User 26/08/2017

This was the second year in a row we stayed here and just like last year our stay couldn't have been nicer. The hotel was very nice and in a good location close to the beach. The employees were friendly and helpful. My wife and I will definitely come back here again and would recommend this hotel to everyone.

"Perfect friendly...great folk..."

jiggerb, Las Vegas, Nevada 25/08/2017

What a delightful two-night stay we had. I write this as Hurricane Harvey is about to descend upon Port Aransas…extremely hard for us to imagine what this sweet community is facing. We waited until after 4pm to check into our rooms. We kept busy having a late lunch at the pizza place across the street (will pass on that next time) and visiting some of the souvenir shops. The rooms are largely comfortable with the king and a little cramped with the two queens…still quite doable. We liked that the floors are tile and even though we left our sandy shoes outside the door, sand still tracks in. We appreciated having a second clean pair to wear once in the room such as slippers or extra flip-flops. The staff was superb – could not ask for more attentive or nicer folk. The breakfast was well presented, plentiful, and good. Loved the Texas waffles! I think they are the best I've had. When possible, we would return. This was our first visit to Port A and we'd enjoy returning.

"excelent hotel for money"

"Fun Days"

Lynda T, Amarillo, Texas 21/08/2017

We met our kids here they have a 5th wheel they stayed at a beautiful Resort. We had a great breakfast to start our day at Best Western Port Arkansas then we went to the beach to play. We came to BW to rest and went back out for food and fun for 2 days. It was all great hope to do it again and again.

"Excellent Service and Location"

MGreenwalt, Elgin, Texas, United States 21/08/2017

"Nice place"

Margie R, San Marcos 15/08/2017

Great location. It was a very nice place to stay but a little overpriced for a hotel. Hotel staff were great and did a great job keeping the place clean. Breakfast was good but the same thing everyday gets a little boring.

"Pleasantly surprised!"

270baileyf, Austin, Texas 14/08/2017

I loved everything about this hotel. From the amazing guest service, to the cleanliness, to the modern apperance and comfort of the room. Best western port A made my trip 100% better! This hotel is better than anything you can rent on mustang island (munis the beach view). And Its about an 8 min walk (1-2 min drive) to the beach.

"The BEST Hotel"

Tammy H, Austin, Texas 09/08/2017

We went for a friends trip and had the best time. This is simple the most friendly people who work there. They are will to help in anyway they can. Giving great insight into the island and the best places to see, eat and drink. The staff was so friendly they let us have the conference room to watch the Dallas cowboys pre-season game. We were able to bring in snaks and Adult beverages. It was simply Awesome. They gave us info on sone great places to eat. I will stay there from now on. The rooms were amazing. They were newly remodeled and very clean, tge A/C was COLD on the Hot summer days. It is located right in the thick of everything abd very close to the beach. Breakfast was spot on and very tasty. If you are looking for a place that in the midfle of everything and a full breakfast please come. Tammie and the staff are ready to please.

"Friendly staff, clean"

frederickc805, SAN ANTONIO, United States 07/08/2017

Staff friendly and helpful--they make you feel like family. They keep everything clean which is a challenge at a beach. Breakfast is good and plentiful. Whenever we asked for extras like towels or a crib, we received it right away.

"Will be coming back."

User 06/08/2017

This was our first time staying here and my family and I were very pleased. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, just overall nice. The breakfast was really good, a variety of selections for every taste. I will DEFINITELY be staying here from now on on family trips.

"Quick trip to Port Aransas"

Ann H, Lexington, Texas 05/08/2017

This is a great place to stay for a relaxing trip to Port Aransas. From the the moment you check in til the time you check out you are on vacation! The room was clean and nicely decorated. The beds were extra comfy. The free breakfast was excellent with your choice from waffles to toast and all the trimmings. And the scrambled eggs there were the best we've had at any hotel!! The staff were all courteous and friendly too! That's a big plus these days!!

"Nice Property"

christinacU232WI, Waco, Texas 04/08/2017

Rooms were nice. Housekeeping, breakfast and check in staff were great. Close to restaurants and stores and just a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed our stay and all slept comfortably in the oversized room.

"Best Western Port A - Great Place to Stay"

701charlesas, Schertz, United States 03/08/2017

Close to good restaurants, the beach, the bird sanctuary, and the Port-A Park with miles of trails and the 9-hole disc golf course. Helpful staff, good internet access, and lots of TV channels. I recommend this hotel (but will not go back to Mac Daddy's; worst burger I've ever had).

"Surprised "

Jeremy C, Midlothian, Texas 03/08/2017

I haven't stayed at a Best Western in several years..... I know the brand has been undergoing some renovations. I was very surprised at this location and it's accommodations. All for the rooms in my reservation or clean freshly remodeled and the air conditioner was very cold beds were great and the staff was awesome. We are in town traveling for business and typically stay at a different Hotel here in town but will certainly be back to the Best Western.

"Great Family Vacation Hotel."

daisy7878, hillsboro 02/08/2017

Newly renovated, great selection of breakfast and great location to everything you need in Port Aransas!! We loved it! 5 walking blocks from the beach, across the street is Pizza Buffet, and 4 walking blocks from the main strip of shopping and restaurants.

"Great Breakfast Easy Beach Access"

User 30/07/2017

We spent one night here but wish we had time to spend another night. The breakfast was one of the better BW offerings. We thought the price per night was a bit high but it seemed to be the norm for this time of year in Port Aransas. The room was clean and appointed well....lots of outlets for your electronics. :-) Another good point was that it was easy walking distance to the beach...maybe 3.5 blocks. We would stay here again.

"Very clean. Josie our house keeper was thoughtful & kind. We spoke every day on our plans. "

Meeting2010, Columbus, Ohio 30/07/2017

I recommend this hotel to everyone because it looks new, staff helpful, maid service is outstanding, breakfast was good & fresh every morning. The hotel is 3 blocks to the beach& across the street from pizza parlor. We rented a golf cart which was across the street also. This hotel was exactly what we were looking for.

"Great Hotel!"

Have been staying at this hotel at least once a year and have always had a great experience with the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is very well maintained with the property and services upgraded seems each time we go. Definitely recommend staying here.


Viola T, Annandale, United States 25/07/2017

I was in the Port A area celebrating my 60th Birthday! When I was young I hung out at the beach almost every weekend it was great going back. The rooms are nice they were recently renovated. All the staff were extremely friendly. And the pool was AWESOME! The hotel is in a prime location took us 5 minutes to walk to the beach. Plus, there several restaurants within walking distance. We will definitely stay there again!

"Excellent experience!"

Tammy the office manager was fantastic! She went out of her way! My family and I had a wonderful time. Close to the beach and great shops as well as great places to eat. I would definitely return. Thanks Tammy for doing such a great job!

"Great Location for a very Basic Hotel Room"

pascal82, texas 24/07/2017

We choose BW because it was located near the center of town. We were pleased with the BW location and the exterior of the hotel. We were not as pleased about the quality of the room. It was very small quarters and the beds were not as comfortable as we had hoped. When we arrived, our floors were sandy. The staff was very helpful.

Love the place. Very friendly and helpful staff all of them. Comfortable bed, soft towels, updated and newly remodeled rooms, breakfast with lots of options, clean nice pool. Décor was nice and great location to the beach all shopping.


39marielag, Fort Worth, Texas 17/07/2017

The booking accuracy was terrible we got there Friday morning from a long drive all the way from Fort Worth and when we got to the hotel they didn't let us stay and their excuses was the room wasn't ready and that it would be ready till 4pm

"Modern and clean room with friendly personnel"

ljiljanac2017, Kempner, Texas 17/07/2017

The hotel location was very convenient and it was not far from beach, shopping, and dining. The room was decorated very tasteful and it was clean. The check-in and breakfast personnel were very friendly. The price was reasonable and I would definitely consider staying there again!


genphia, New Braunfels, Texas 16/07/2017

I was totally and utterly impressed with the room I stayed in. Was not expecting BW to be this nice. We came in a day early before a group of friends and needed a place to stay for one night before checking into our house...BW was far nicer then the house we stayed in; at least, for us. Don't get me wrong the house that we stayed at was nice and big. Beautiful home but for the amount of money we paid to stay in our own private bedroom. We would have been better off staying at BW. Our room was a lot bigger and comfortable at BW. You have inherited a new customer in Port A.

davidlN2182IQ, San Antonio, TX, United States 05/07/2017

Superb service and cleanliness with a great staff. We've stayed here once before about two years ago. A good hotel then, improvements were significant. The GM, Tammy, was very helpful and here staff is top-notch.

"Perfect getaway"

Brian G, Calgary, Canada 02/07/2017

We stayed at this property for the first time just for a 3 day break and it exceeded our expectations. In particular, the mattresses were so comfortable that I asked for the manufacturer's name. And the service from the manager to the room cleaner was very welcoming and attentive. The layout is modern and very clean and the pool is well maintained. Breakfast included great quality hot and cold items which were served until 10:00 am for late comers like ourselves.

"Great Stay"

David K, austin, United States 25/06/2017

Friendliest staff on the Island. By far the cleanest budget hotel in Port A. Breakfast is tops as well. We have stayed here at least 12 times over the years and never have had even an average experience. Staff has been there for years and they keep the place ultra clean

"Home away from home :)"

User 22/06/2017

The staff were amazing and very helpful. Even with the construction going on they made sure we had a good experience from the Moment we got there until we departed. Especially loved how everything was clean and tidy during breakfast.

"Always a great place"

User 19/06/2017

This is the only place my wife & I stay when we go to Port Aransas. We have never encountered a problem with our stay. The room is always clean, well stocked, and in working condition. The pool & pool area is always well kept. The staff is exceptional. Great Place!

"Four blocks from the beach, clean rooms, good breakfast and a Swimming pool."

Gary1836, Austin, Texas 16/06/2017

Stayed for two nights with our granddaughter who enjoyed being near the beach. We walked there and back each morning and evening to enjoy the beach when the sun wasn't so hot. Hot day times are when we go to museums or shopping or take naps. We don't like to get sun burned and don't enjoy the hot humidity that soaks your clothes in the middle of the day. It's not that far to the wonderful Corpus Christi Museum of History and Science near the big bridge. And there's also the Lady Lexington Aircraft carrier, but that hot steel deck is really hot during the day. The staff at the hotel did a great job at the front desk, cleaning the room, and at breakfast. There were two women at breakfast each morning that kept the room well-stocked with food and supplies. The scrambled eggs were fresh, well-prepared, and there were other options with potatoes, sausages, and fresh fruit. They have two waffle machines with the batter to make your own waffles and they were excellent. They have fresh strawberry sauce to put on your waffles, along with maple syrup, and a can of good whipped cream. Or they have chocolate chips if you want those on your waffles. There is actually some shade on the pool part of the afternoon so that helped keep from getting sunburned. Just a note that there is construction going on up front. I was concerned when I saw that, but although our room was on the first floor near the front, they only work on the job during the day and we never heard any noise from the construction, so I don't think that's a problem. It appears they are trying to add more rooms as this appears to be a very popular place to stay. The rates were higher than we usually pay for a Best Western or Holiday Inn Express, but this hotel had cheaper rates than the Holiday Inn Express (which is only one block closer to the beach). And saving money makes me wake up feeling smarter in the morning! There's nothing fancy about this place, but the higher than usual costs are due to the fact that it is not far from the beach and it is on an Island. So rates are going to be higher. You can stay cheaper farther away, but you'll either need a dune buggy or you'll need to get a beach permit to park on the beach. But if you park your own car on the beach, remember that you are running the risk of getting salt water and salt air inside the metal parts of your car and that is guaranteed to cause rust. One of the rules of used car buying is to never buy a used car that comes from the coast. Don't ruin your car with salt water.

"Nice stay"

Winejunkie_10, Houston, Texas 16/06/2017

We needed a room for just one night during the week. I also did not want to pay a ton of money for it so this fit the bill. Nice lobby with good breakfast. Room was clean and we were able to check in early. It is about a 3 block walk to the beach which was convenient. Right across the street is a gas station for drinks and snacks and also a pizza restaurant. You can't beat the location! The pool was nice and clean. I would stay here again for a short tip!

"good location"

A7783PEbriank, Frisco, Texas, United States 15/06/2017

we love the location the beach is a few blocks away and a short walk to shopping and 24 hr Whataburger and Stripes are great for the night fisherman or wake up early ventures. My wife likes to walk more than I and I like to fish more than than she. So it works out well for both of us. My son likes the Skatepark Port Aransas built near the Public Pool

"Budget best"

User 15/06/2017

Clean and comfy Got there early and got an early check in. Nice updated room Only complaint is the noisy A/C unit. When it cycled off a loud clunk that rattled the drain pipes and woke me up a couple of times. But for the price, you really should complain. Nice full breakfast included

"Best Best Western"

LindaAustin_TX, Austin, TX 14/06/2017

I've stayed at this location many times and have never had a bad experience. The hotel is great and the staff is amazing. Very convenient to so many things in town....restaurants, shopping, bars and walking distance to the beach.

"Great place"

Theresa S, Katy 13/06/2017

Easy check in and out! Nice room and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was GREAT! My grandson left his little wallet in room and we were 50 miles down the road and were not coming back that way but the front desk lady (wish I remembered her name) was soooo kind; she mailed me the wallet to my home! Awesome! Would stay here again!!!! Great little hotel!!!!

"Great Stay"

Michael L, Kerrville, Texas 11/06/2017

Always treated politely by the staff. They are very attentive. You will not want to stay any where else in Port Aransas. Everything is immaculate. Breakfast is great. Pool is great. Very convenient to all the shops and dining. It is all just Awesome!

"Great location and room"

96lucretiag, Amarillo, United States 05/06/2017

The hotel was in a great location close to the beach. The room was very clean and very spacious. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was satisfactory. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

"Perfect location!"

Johnny L, texas gulf coast 28/05/2017

We just stayed the week before Memorial Day holiday and it was a perfect location for hopping around this little part of the island. The room was nice, with a big comfy king mattress. Had a great showerhead (one if my personal grades) in the tub/shower. Nice view and a convenience store right across the street. The breakfast was very nice with waffles, yogurts, eggs and sausage, but no bacon offered. :/ There was some hotel construction going on when we arrived, but was soon over the same day. There was a nice pool on site with toeels poolside fir cooling down after a day at the beach. All in all... it's a great location wth ez access to the beach, golf carts, and short drive to restaraunts.

"Great place"

Brett J, Rockwall, Texas, United States 27/05/2017

This hotel was very good. There was some construction going on that didn't really make too much noise. We initially had a room on the first floor, but the door was not working so they moved us to an upstairs room. The breakfast was good, the people were very nice, the room was clean and did not smell bad. The bathroom door was oddly wide and made it difficult to get into the bathroom and close the door.

"Good stay"

LoneStarTrvlr, Hudson Oaks, TX 23/05/2017

The room we had looked as if it had been painted and redone recently. During our last stay here a couple of years ago they were working on the rooms. My observation is that they are working to keep the rooms looking nice. They are also adding on 5 king kitchenette suites. The construction was causing some minor restrictions and the staff were really going out of their way to be friendly and make everything good for their customers. They have a nice pool area. The location on the island is excellent. Their breakfast exceeds most Best Western sites. They had a burrito bar with eggs, potatoes, sausage and cheese available. Two waffle irons and cereal. The coffee is "machine" coffee -- better than offered at many places but not as good as fresh. We will definitely stay here again.

"Very Good Experience - Nice, Clean, Helpful Personnel"

bnashville, San Antonio, Texas 22/05/2017

Stayed here 1 night on May 8. Room was not luxurious, but well maintained and clean. Needed help getting refrigerator running and setting captions on TV. The General Manager, I believe Tammie was her name came immediately and fixed the refrigerator. The front desk clerk told me how to run captions without having to think about it. They both were very, very knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. Not your normal motel personnel. Being a fishing guy, I had an ice chest and some gear that I did not want to leave in the car. This place is the old motel style with room doors opening onto the parking lot, but recently renovated and modern. I could move my gear right out of the car and into the room. Solid construction, no noise from above and neighboring rooms. THE BREAKFAST WAS FANTASTIC...freshly cooked sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits, hash brown potatoes, along with salsa, tortillas, pastries, juices, cereals, GREAT WAFFLES - crisp on the outside and moist on the inside with great tasting syrup, milk, yogurt and much more. No frozen stuff heated in a microwave. Did a lot of research...rates were best for comparable places. No...I do not work for this motel! I will be back, definitely (mainly for the breakfast).!

"Very Happy Guest"

655marilynnd, BURLESON, United States 22/05/2017

We wanted a quick getaway and this place was excellent. One of the cleanest hotels we have stayed at. Front desk clerk recommended Stingrays for seafood and it was a 10 also. We just drove straight down the street and onto the beach. Loved it.

TexasOceanmama, texas 21/05/2017

R2382GXrobertc, Austin, United States 18/05/2017

Only, two blocks from the beach and a great room amenities. Microwave, Fridge, internet, and on site washing machines if you need it. Breakfast served every morning out does all the others in the area.

"comfortable and well done"

kgkraemer, Austin, Texas 17/05/2017

Stayed at another hotel for one night and had to leave because it was so inferior. Best Western was clean, comfortable and quiet. Very hospitable front desk. Nice swimming pool. Good breakfast. Good price. Would not hesitate to return. Felt we got good value. Several restaurants in town were closed on Sunday or Monday or Tues. Staff were not aware. Most likely, these places will be open more days when school lets out and tourism soars.


User 17/05/2017

Excellent hotel and service. Very clean. Staff is caring and kind. I recommend this hotel as it is difficult to find one in the area that is so clean and newer. Excelente servicio y limpieza excelente. Los empleos cuida total y amable.

Excellent motel and value. Very enjoyable stay. Would highly recommend. Have stayed before, and the rooms are great; very quiet; very comfortable beds; and, the service is excellent. The breakfast is outstanding.

"Highly recommend this hotel! Enjoyable stay & convenient location."

Linda B, Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina 16/05/2017

Very clean room & bath..seemed recently remodeled. Comfortable beds, quiet and just 2 1/2 blocks to Gulf! Walking distance to restaurants, drug store, and golf cart rentals...very popular way to get around. Walking distance to town's great birding locations! Very nice heated outdoor pool, indoor computer room, and very helpful & friendly staff! Full breakfast buffet. Would stay here again.

"Very nice hotel"

travellinman55, Lockhart, TX 03/05/2017

Stayed at this Best Western Hotel in Port Aransas and had a wonderful experiece. Friendly staff, refurbised room, heated pool, better-than-average breakfast, and convenient to beach and restaurants. We have stayed at this hotel several times and have never been disappointed. Our favorite on the island!

"Nice and relaxing stay"

NMgypsy, Columbus. Ohio 02/05/2017

We went for our anniversary and stayed 3 nights and we both hated to leave! The hotel was clean, great housekeeping, never had to ask for a single thing. It is an older hotel but very nicely updated. Tammie at the front desk gave us a map of the area and several tips of things to do and see, also nearby restaurants to enjoy. It is only about 3 blocks to the beach. Nice pool area. Breakfast had many options; eggs, sausage, yogurt, waffles, fruit, cereal, and more. We look forward to staying here again in the future. The only reason I didn't give it a best review is the rooms open to the outside and there is parking noise outside and we could hear people walking in the room above us. The bed was comfortable. Rooms had a microwave, fridge, and small coffee maker. Air conditioning worked great and nice shower pressure. WiFi was a little slow but was free and worked!

"What's not to like?"

CenTex08, Copperas Cove 02/05/2017

This BW was excellent as the staff was helpful and friendly, clean room. comfortable bed, good breakfast, heated pool, etc... The location was easy to find and in a quiet area. the beach is just a short drive down the street. Don't forget to purchase a parking sticker for the beach as no parking is permitted anywhere without it. Need I say more?

"Great Expectations in this Price Range"

Melissa U, Austin, Texas 01/05/2017

After several months of traveling for fun/business, I'd begun to think my hotel expectations were too high. Is it too much to ask for: friendly competent staff, clean rooms, clean beds and a decent breakfast? I don't think that's too much to ask for and, thankfully, this Best Western supports that belief. For an island ubiquitous with sand, this hotel was refreshingly clean. The rooms were either new or newly renovated and it really made a difference. It smelled great and I didn't feel like I'd been contaminated by touching things! We did eat breakfast and it was decent. We did not use the pool so I can't comment on the pool but it looked clean. For this price range, I was impressed and would stay here again.

"Awesome place to stay"

User 01/05/2017

Very clean rooms and very helpful staff. Took along a dvd player to watch movies. Could not get it to work and the front desk guy came to our room at 11pm to try to fix it. Two blocks off the Beach. You can walk or just walk next door or across the st. to rent a buggy..

"Great stay"

MarkRGonzalez, San Antonio, Texas 25/04/2017

My family and I had a terrific experience especially dealing with their courteous staff. Our room was in great shape and it was well maintained throughout our stay. We would definitely come back and stay.

"Just a great little motel"

User 24/04/2017

Good design and excellent location walking distance from the beach and from some local stores. Spotlessly clean and a good breakfast with - yes believe it or not - fresh eggs! Coffee free all day. Easy parking. Nice heated pool and sun area. I'll be back.

"Close to the beach "

moosiebadazz, Fort Worth, Texas 04/04/2017

This hotel was awesome for the price. It was accessible to the beach, restaurants, and bars. The breakfast could have been better. The rooms seemed newly updated, and there was some remodeling going on.

Very nice Hotel and very close to the Port Aransas Beach. Just a close walk away! Always stay at this Hotel and as always the staff is great! Will continue to stay here when traveling to Port Aransas and will definitely recommend to others who wish to travel to Port Aransas.

"Nice location"

Patsy L, Dumas, Texas 14/11/2016

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!"

TwoEquestrians, Central Illinois 09/11/2016

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"

chutski, Kelowna, Canada 05/11/2016

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"

Gail H, San Antonio, Texas 02/11/2016

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"

Jerome H, Walker, Minnesota 01/11/2016

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.


Foodie53_11, Blanco, Texas 21/10/2016

This is one of the best kept secrets in Port A. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable. The pool and the surrounding area are kept well maintained.

"Another pleasant getaway"

Lynn T, San Marcos 20/10/2016

This is the 4th or 5th time we have stayed in this particular Best Western. We have never had a single problem and the folks there are so friendly and treat us like family. Breakfast is always excellent and hot. Coffee is good and we will return again.

"Great Hotel with Awesome Breakfast and Close to the Beach"

Karen R, Fort Worth, Texas, United States 18/10/2016

I have stayed at a few Best Western hotel and I have to admit...this one is my favorite! the staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is awesome! Breakfast burritos, fried eggs and sausage, waffles, etc.The property is very clean and isn't far from the beach at all. I would definitely stay here again.

User 13/10/2016

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."

User 13/10/2016

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.

"Lovely Property"

StaceyPH, Austin, Texas 11/10/2016

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. I highly recommend this property as a great place to stay!

"Nice and Close"

Stanley A, San Antonio, United States 11/10/2016

Hotel is close to beach and town businesses while providing very fair accommodations. Driving from the location is easy to access beach areas and streets provide byway to restaurants and nature areas.


User 08/10/2016

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"

Vickey S, Austin, United States 03/10/2016

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 "

Maria M, Houston 02/10/2016

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!"

mcginthy, Kerrville, Texas 27/09/2016

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"

User 25/09/2016

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.

"Awesome place to stay "

User 22/09/2016

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.

"Brief getaway"

carmminepilot, carm ine 15/09/2016

Would definitely stay there again. For the money it is a great deal. The staff was super friendly with right on food recommendations. Port A is pretty small and easy to get around. The hotels location is pretty much in the middle of everything.

"Never lets us down!"

Steven S, San Antonio, Texas 10/09/2016

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"

Vickie Massey C, Kennedale, Texas 09/09/2016

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.

"Great midrange hotel"

Linda S, San Antonio, Texas, United States 05/09/2016

We stayed here 2 nights when we went fishing in Aransas Pass. Room was very clean and staff very nice. We did it take advantage of the continental breakfast as we left very early. We would stay here again.

"Awesome place to stay!"

Diana G, Waco, United States 02/09/2016

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 ""

User 01/09/2016

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"

Alex_suomi, Livingston, New Jersey 01/09/2016

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"

QuadJB, Dallas, Texas 30/08/2016

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!!

"Nice renovations "

Nikki H, Richmond, Texas 28/08/2016

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!!"

KE85M09, Austin 27/08/2016

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!!

"Relaxing and Enjoyable"

Rosemarie R, Austin, United States 22/08/2016

My Husband and I had a fun, relaxing and enjoyable weekend get away at our favorite hotel, Best Western in Port Aransas, Tx. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. Rooms clean. Pool was clean and refreshing. Breakfast was delicious and yummy. From check in, to check out. To housekeeping. Very friendly and nice people. We'll be back, for sure!

"Don't Judge a Book by its cover"

LKay113, Houston, Texas 22/08/2016

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"

AmyJosie, Bitburg, Germany 21/08/2016

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!

"Nice 'motel'"

Bryan G, Gloucester, United Kingdom 20/08/2016

Nice place but more of a motel than hotel. Room clean and well equipped. Good location with pool. Lots of families so a little noisy (had room next to pool) room on second floor with no lift or help with bags. Good price so perfect for our overnight stay.

"Nice stay on last minute trip"

mary s, Gatesville, Texas 18/08/2016

Rooms were very clean and roomy. Close to most anything you want to do and the pool was very nice. Had a little noise from the room above us but i think they had children running around the room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. would stay here again.


User 18/08/2016

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"

User 12/08/2016

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"

User 12/08/2016

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!

"Excellent hotel"

User 07/08/2016

Highly recommend. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large room. Great breakfast. Close to everything and very clean. Was very surprised as didn't expect it to be as nice as it was for lower star rating but was better then most higher star rated hotels I've stayed at. Will definitely be back.

"Staff is incredible"

User 05/08/2016

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 the girls that did the breakfast...always kept the area clean and well 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.

"Family Holiday"

Catherine Z, San Antonio, United States 05/08/2016

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"

David W, Dallas, Texas 03/08/2016

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.

"Motel stay review"

Teodoro O, san antonio, United States 31/07/2016

It was a good experience but the rate was a little pricey possibly due to the high demand for rooms in the last week of July. The rooms, lobby and restrooms were clean and well stocked with required accessories.

"Friendly Staff, Terrible Beds"

Stephanie W, San Antonio, United States 28/07/2016

The overall presentation of this hotel is very nice. The lobby is inviting and the staff is wonderful. However, we would never stay here again because the beds are horrible. I do not want to wake up sore every morning when I am supposed to be on vacation.

"Best port aransas experience "

User 27/07/2016

We've been to Port Aransas twice a year for 10 years. This is the first time I can say I'll book the same hotel for next time. After a horrible experience at Bay Tree, this totally made up for it. The staff here is so friendly and helpful. Breakfast bar is great! Our suite was clean and very comfortable

"Two blocks from beach"

shineTexas, Texas 19/07/2016

We stayed here 2 nights. Room was clean bed was comfortable, floors laminate, microwave, frig, coffee. Full breakfast, of eggs, sausage,tortillas, cheese, waffles, along with breads and juices. Dining area is small. They also have a pool. Best part is the location to the beach.

""I will return""

User 19/07/2016

We stayed this past weekend. We rented out the mini suite and it was very comfortable. Tammie is so sweet and made sure we had all that we needed. She even gave us a map on things to do and see. All staff highly kind, even the maid Josie. One of the things I like about it. It didn't have carpet. So when you came back from the beach. Wet and full of sand. The maid came back and sweep the floor for us. After we got cleaned up. This is the place I will be staying when I go to Port Aransas again and again. Thank you, Geneva

"birding outing"

Sharon H, gilbert, United States 18/07/2016

A great place to stay. very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. room was spacious and clean. Would stay again any time in the area. Good recommendations on where to eat and how to get to the birding locations we were looking for.

"Best Western Ocean Villa Port Aransas Texas"

David S, Pflugerville, United States 17/07/2016

Everything was smooth from check in to check out. The staff was excellent and always was inquiring if we needed anything. The breakfast was exceptional with a large selection of food. The bed was very comfortable.

"Really Good Stay!"

Joyce E, Seguin, United States 16/07/2016

Would recommend this Best Western Hotel for great, friendly, helpful service. Works with you in any changes to satisfaction. Staff is excellent, rooms nicely done and very clean and comfortable. Quite roomy. Also very quiet which sometime is a concern during peak beach season. Breakfast seems to be above average for hotel type breakfasts.

"Walking Distance to Beach Questionable."

Eccl5v18, Summit, Mississippi 12/07/2016

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.

"Love their King suite"

User 12/07/2016

We stayed for a weekend and it was so nice! The staff was friendly and the room was very clean; exactly what we wanted. The bed was pillow soft and the hardwood floors are perfect for the sand/beach environment.

"Port A"

User 10/07/2016

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."

deezil2015, Austin, Texas 09/07/2016

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 value and location"

Angela P, Michigan 08/07/2016

Great staff, property, pool, room and guests. A wonderful location that's walking distance to everything. Super value and clean! I highly recommend it for everyone. Nice beds and decor but the bathrooms though clean, could use some updating.

"Highly Recommend"

Katherine R, Austin, United States 07/07/2016

The Best Western in Port Aransas, Tx was excellent. The staff were exceptional and very polite. The room was spacious and clean. The pool area was nice. The hotel is in a great area and close to everything. I highly recommend this hotel and will definately return.

"Great customer service; great breakfast buffet; great location"

Frog4aday, Denver, Colorado 07/07/2016

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!

"Terrific Hotel"

ELopez2012, San Antonio, Texas 05/07/2016

Every time we go to Port A we stay at the Best Western Oceanvilla because we know we will not be disappointed. The hotel staff is always very friendly and go out of their way to make us feel at home. We will continue to stay at this hotel in our future visits to Port A.

"Super clean and very welcoming"

myrtlevalley, San Antonio, Texas 03/07/2016

The hotel is very clean and that staff was so welcoming. The continental breakfast was really good. Walking distance to the beach and lots of parking. I would definitely stay there again. It was a very nice experience.

"Great Short Beach Trip"

User 01/07/2016

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.

"Good Experience"

Bill S, Port Aransas, United States 30/06/2016

A value. Enjoyable. Great staff good breakfast clean good location adn an overall good experience. I really don;t know what else to say. to get to 200 characters om this review. Great wonderful fantastic incredible what else?

"Great property in a perfect location"

jtex4, Sugar Land, Texas 27/06/2016

This is a very nice, clean motel that is convenient to everything in Port A. The front desk and cleaning staff are always very nice and hospitable. They take great pride in maintaining this place very well.

"A great choice!"

jeskap, Kansas City, Missouri 23/06/2016

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"

Nan1951, The Woodlands, Texas 22/06/2016

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"

fredwhitten, Spring Branch, TX 22/06/2016

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 and clean"

suejoez, Midlothian,TX 21/06/2016

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 stay"

Terry T, Gonzales, United States 18/06/2016

Staff was great. The rooms were nice and clean.We slept great on the beds very comfortable. Will stay again. It was close to everything and a short walk to the beach. The pool was nice and clean pool area was nice and clean.

"Clean and comfortable"

lsneed62, Rowlett, Texas 15/06/2016

It wasn't as nice as some Best Westerns but it was super super clean and that makes up for a lot of other things. The rooms were quite dated but in good repair. The ladies at the front desk were awesome. Super friendly and helpful. I was impressed with the fact that they actually wash the sidewalks and walkways off every day. Nice and clean place to stay.

"Great Stay"

David K, San Antonio, United States 15/06/2016

Will stay again Had a wonderful experience Breakfast was fantastic Fresh fruit,juice Waffles Eggs Sausage etc. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good price and good value for the money paid Pool was clean and warm and wonderful to swim and relax

"Best stay in Port A"

David K, austin, United States 12/06/2016

WE go to Port A at least twice a year and for the last 4 years we have stayed at the BW. Its our favorite place on the island. great service, great staff and always nice cool super clean rooms. ALWAYS!! as long as they are there we have a place to stay.

"Loved it and would stay again!"

Susan A, Eagle Pass, United States 11/06/2016

This hotel was awesome! Staff went out of their way to make our stay very pleasurable. They made us feel like Royalty! They made sure we had everything we needed, extra blankets, internet, and extremely cold A/C. We will definitely stay here again.

"Great Choice"

CLC439, Austin, Texas 09/06/2016

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.

"Great hotel!"

User 07/06/2016

We had a very comfortable room and everything worked well, great shower and bed, wonderful housekeeping staff, extremely helpful front desk staff, delicious breakfast. Will definitely stay here again!

"Great Stay"

RESERVE2, TEXAS 07/06/2016

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!

"Great Value At The Beach"

bmsatter, Austin, Texas 06/06/2016

I love this hotel and have been staying here every year for the past seven years for my family's annual trip to the beach. It actually gets better every year. You can tell they listen to their customers and are constantly trying to improve. Breakfast was great, facilities were nice, very close to the beach, rooms comfortable. I won't look anywhere else next year. Expect us back.

"Perfect Stay"

143vickim, Nacogdoches, Texas 03/06/2016

Great stay at Best Western Port Aransas. Friendly and helpful staff, clean room, comfortable bed, great breakfast, and close to the beach. Restaurants within walking distance. Try the pizza place across the street.

"Recent renovation made for a comfortable stay"

User 01/06/2016

I'm not sure when they renovated, but for the price we paid and the quality of the room & amenities this was a good deal. Included breakfast was pretty good, location excellent, assistance from the front desk very good, and distance to beach hard to beat compared to many other non-beachfront hotels in Port Aransas.

"Great Stay and Great People"

Rosemarie R, Austin, United States 01/06/2016

Happy 1 year Anniversary to my husband and I, we spent 4 nights and 5 days relaxing and enjoying Port A. Comfy bed. The rooms have been remodeled. The outside painted beautiful calming colors. The people who work here are a real team. We will be back for sure. And Breakfast is delicious, so much to choose from.

"Best Hotel in the Area!"

User 26/05/2016

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.

"Perfect stay!"

dement143, Baird, Texas 22/05/2016

The room was immaculate , the beds and pillows were so comfortable, lovely staff!! Excellent breakfast as well.. We will be back for sure. My girls loved the pool and there is a great pizza place just across the street. Also, a convenient store next door . We could not have asked for better accomadations!!

"Spring Fishing"

Robert P, Houston, United States 09/05/2016

great hotel with very professional staff that goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. When we left early on Saturday for a fishing trip, they suggested a grab and go breakfast that they had at front desk which I was not aware of . There are not many places open very early for breakfast, so this was a nice touch.

"Port A"

rubyandsteve, New Braunfels 06/05/2016

Have been staying at the Best Western when visiting Port A for the past five years now. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly and very helpful. Best breakfast of any place we have stayed. Good value for the money.

"Very accommodating, cheerful staff!"

John K, San Antonio, United States 06/05/2016

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!

"Great hotel for a great price."

Carlos G, Austin, United States 03/05/2016

I had a great time in Port Aransas, the price for this hotel was really good and it included breakfast and free wifi. It's close to the beach so you don't have to worry about parking at the beach where you need a permit. It's also very close to lots of restaurants and stores.

"go somewhere else"

Juan C, San Antonio, United States 01/05/2016

Had a bad experience with hotel, will not bad mouth hotel, will never stay there again. Needs improvements that are capable of fixing, no need to further criticize. Enough to want a drink, oh wait the hotel does not have a bar that is in Port Aransas, go figure.

"Great alternative to a condo"

If you're like me when you are on vacation it's restaurants, sightseeing, fishing, the beach, and sun worshipping. I never have very much time to enjoy a expensive condo. At the Ocean Villa your room is cleaned, the bed is changed, and bath is cleaned daily. You don't wash a dish or make a bed your are on vacation! Pool is always clean and the staff are always helpful, and free breakfast. I enjoyed walking to the beach each evening for swim, great exercise and great swimming.

"Wonderful Place!"

Sherri W, tECUMSEH, United States 28/04/2016

Caring, friendly, professional staff, great breakfast, great room. The bed waThe breakfast staff made sure fresh, hot food was always available. 3 blocks from the beach, great dining very close by. We will definitely go back.


KJN734, Barron, Wisconsin 27/04/2016

We appreciated the clean, warm pool in an attractive setting; the exceptional variety and quality of the breakfast and the friendly, helpful attendant (and other staff); overall - an exceptional experience!

"Great staff!"

TxStar, Austin, TX 25/04/2016

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.

"Birthday Vacation"

Adam M, Clermont, Florida 23/04/2016

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!

"birding vacation yet again!"

Lorna M, Wells, Maine 23/04/2016

I am quite impressed with this little gem. The people who work there obviously love their work and are very intent on making your stay a memorable one. the rooms are very comfortable and clean. Great full breakfast choices, including breakfast tacos! Excellent birding in the immediate area. We were there for 3 days and didn't cover all the spots we wanted too! We'll be back for a longer stay next time!!!

"Very pleasant stay"

ontheroadtwo, Kamloops 22/04/2016

Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We had just booked on minutes before arriving and they were all set for us. Rooms are clean, and away from the road so quiet. The breakfast was very good. I loved the fresh fruit salad. The staff worker in the breakfast room wanted to make you had everything you needed. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it.

"Port A Best Western"

Rhonda P, College Station, United States 15/04/2016

I had a great visit to the Port Aransas,Texas Best Western. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They always greeted me with a smile and willingness to serve. The breakfast was awesome and the room was nice and comfortable.

"A Mistake"

UdornVet1970, Mountain Home, Texas 15/04/2016

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"

Angela J, Fort Worth, Texas, Usa 15/04/2016

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.

"A clean and quiet place to stay"

Angela J, Fort Worth, Texas, Usa 15/04/2016

Check in was a breeze with the aid of a reservation, Bed was made and clean towels provided each day. The rooms had been remodeled since my last stay in 2013. 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"

Texanbybirth, Dallas, Texas 13/04/2016

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.

"Sweet surprise"

Charlie R, Abilene, Texas 08/04/2016

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! So nice and unexpected. I cannot stress enough about how easy it is to get to the beach from this property. Amazing customer service. We will be back.

"My Favorite Place To Stay"

Duane K, Albuquerque 08/04/2016

Once again this Best Western Team goes above and beyond. If I could take this BW and its employees with me every time I traveled I would! Always soo wonderful, helpful, nice and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious as usual and fishing right down the street is awesome!

"Always Stay Here"

User 06/04/2016

Best place we have ever stayed. Excellent staff and owner. Very little staff turnover, which to me, is a sign of a well-run hotel. Hot, well-prepared breakfast. Excellent housekeeping. We have actually become friends with several staff members and look forward to our next trip.

"Pleasant surprise!"

jeffnang, San Antonio, Texas 05/04/2016

Our room was super nice and clean just as we had read in the other reviews. Us beach goers know how some motels/condos can get run down. And NO carpet in the room, yea! Everyone was so friendly. We'll definitely be back!

"Wonderful location!"

User 03/04/2016

The Best Western Port Aransas was in a great location close to restaurants, shopping, a coffee house (Coffee Waves), and the BEACH. You could easily park your car and not drive again or rent a golf/beach cart (for 2-6 persons) and drive all over the island!

"Clean and friendly hotel"

TheLight, Houston, Texas 30/03/2016

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.

"Another weekend in Port A"

Jeff G, Bryan, Texas 29/03/2016

Arrived at hotel to find the reservation id made was for sunday and not for saturday, which is when i got there. The hotel was booked, but the manger stepped in and saved the day by finding me a room. Over all very pleased with the hotel staff but not so much with the online application for making reservations.

"Very Good"

Ray I, Lathrop, United States 26/03/2016

Got at the Hotel Early - Clerk took our phone number - moved our rooms up on the list to clean and prepare. We went on to the beach and enjoyed ourselfs. Would stay again -- teenage sons ready to come again.

"Enjoyed our stay"

Avitraveller, Alamo, Texas 23/03/2016

Good, quiet location close to restaurants and close to the ocean. Good amenities with spacious entry lobby and business area, swimming pool, and plenty of parking. Good staff and clean up to date buildings.

"Amazing Spring Break Vacation!!"

Janice R, Osage City 20/03/2016

I simply can not say enough good things about our visit!! This is the nicest Best Western I have ever stayed! I took the trip with my teenage daughter and since it was spring break I didn't know what to expect. The spring breakers staying at the hotel were all super and really no problem what so ever! The hotel is beautiful and really really nice! The free breakfast and coffee is spectacular! Pool very nice and heated so one can lay out even if it is a bit cool. Located just three blocks from the beach and cart rentals right next door. The staff is super helpful and kind make you feel like family. They really go above and beyond! General Manager is a gem and makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable! It was an amazing time and I will definitely stay here again! Don't miss out on this perfect spot!!

"Affordable but near to beach"

lindabit64, Golden, Colorado 17/03/2016

Our stay at the Ocean Villa Best Western Hotel in Port Aransas was wonderful, yet affordable. Just remodeled and very clean, the employees were very friendly and efficient. Only 2 blocks from the beach, and a great pizza restaurant across the street.

"Excellent Hotel"

Billie H, Cypress, United States 12/03/2016

We have stayed at this hotel numerous times. It has been great each time; however, this time there was a surprise when we arrived. The hotel went through some renovations and it looks great! Of course, we will always stay at this hotel when we travel to Port Aransas!

"Nice Place"

Gregory B, Kingwood, United States 10/03/2016

We really enjoyed our stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Property well maintained. Rooms up to date and clean. Location of property very convenient to everything we wanted to see and do in the area.

"Best Western Port Aransas"

Sharron R, Colorado Springs 09/03/2016

Almost didn't stay here due to the previous reviews. However, other than the towels being a little thin we had a great experience. No smells, no noise, very helpful reception person. I was sick so didn't want to be near an elevator, noisy kids or adults, vending/ice machine and I received a room away from all of that and had a very peaceful night.

"Excellent Value, great location"

Tiffany S, Commerce Township, Michigan 08/03/2016

Stayed here with a friend for a girl's getaway weekend and was very pleased. Beds are very comfortable, rooms are relatively quiet, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They somehow missed cleaning our room one day (even after we called at 3:30 to check on it), but they brought us fresh towels when I called at 8pm when we returned to our room and it was still not cleaned. The breakfast each morning is Fantastic! Best hotel breakfast I've had and I travel a fair amount. Walking distance to the beach, nice clean heated outdoor pool. Would definitely stay here again.

"The Best at Best Western"

Donald W, Frankston, United States 08/03/2016

Its hard not to overstate the Hard working staff at the Port Aransas Best Western. From the maids to the check in folks it is incredible that they can maintain a professional cheerful attitude with the volume of business they do. I researched every place on the Island and the reviews on this place were spot on. THE BEST!

"3 day getaway"

Dave W, Schertz, Texas 03/03/2016

This was my wife and I 5th trip to port aransas, texas and we always stay at the Best Western. They are always working on updating the place and the rooms are very comfortable ,clean and quite.The staff are very helpful and friendly. We will always stay at the Best Western when we travel to Port Aransas.

"Perfect beach hotel"

katyroadpink, San Antonio 03/03/2016

Freshly and attractively refurbished; five minute walk ( and I did this barefoot) from the beach, but also close to other conveniences; very clean; and the staff could not possibly be more helpful. Also, a heated swimming pool - I didn't use it but the families with children were certainly enjoying it when the gulf was too cold for swimming. This is not a fancy hotel, but it's perfect for a beach getaway.

"gails opinion"

Steve S, Marathon 02/03/2016

the room was comfortable, the staff were beyound expectation. The hotel is centrally located, walk to yhe beach, walk to church, walk to supermarket, walk to many good eating places, walk to many stores for shopping. Swimming pool that is heated to 90 degrees.

"Great place to stay in Port Aransas"

culturevulture45, Chicago, Illinois 01/03/2016

The staff were all friendly and helpful. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was good. The hotel was very conveniently located for activities in town and out of town. Would stay here again.

"Another Amazing Stay"

Duane K, Albuquerque 26/02/2016

Once again this hotel is simply amazing. If I could rate it higher than a 10 I absolutely would. I wish every Best Western was like this one. The staff goes above and beyond. Also I love texas shaped waffles, coffee and oj every morning and hot tea at night! Exellent is and understatement!


Donald S, Carver, United States 25/02/2016

Over the past 5 years, we only once tried the Holiday Inn Express due to a registration conflict and appreciated their workout center so would like that amenity available sometime. All in all, we've been very pleased with the staff and the management's effort to continually update their facility. We will plan to continue to patronize their hotel and will utilize the weekly rates available.

"Wonderful stay"

User 19/02/2016

We loved this hotel and the employees. The manager checked to make sure we were having everything we needed. We loved our room, the breakfast, and it was a few blocks from the beach! We will come back and go straight to this hotel next time we are in Port Aransas! Thank you!


Lakin C, Port Aransas, United States 16/02/2016

The lobby and dining area was nice. Our room was simple and comfortable. The pool was heated so it was nice to go for a swim in the month of February. Also the biggest plus was that it was just down the street from the beach, great location!

"Nice quiet place"

DSMtravel, West Des Moines, Iowa 14/02/2016

We enjoyed our two nights at the BW. The breakfast was very good. Most of the facility has been upgraded. A few areas such as the stairwells need work. The bed linens were quite worn and need to be replaced. There is no elevator for the second floor rooms which is starting to be an issue for our family. The hotel is conveniently located near the beach and other attractions.

"Good night's stay"

Richard M, Pawleys Island, South Carolina 12/02/2016

A last minute change in plans left us needing a place to stay for one night in Port Aransas, Texas. The Best Western filled this need very well. The only negative is that it doesn't have an elevator, the online reservation system had assigned us a second floor room and we had a number of heavy bags we did not want to leave in our vehicle. Fortunately the receptionist was able to find a first story room that fit our needs.

"great place"

jsb698, Alma, Nebraska 12/02/2016

this was a very new, clean motel near all the shops and restaurants that are near the harbor part of town. The fairy is only a few blocks away which is free! to get onto mustang island. The help was especially helpful and friendly.

"Great experience"

Scott B, Austin, United States 10/02/2016

I was treated like a VIP from the minute I checked into this hotel. By the time I left, the staff new me by name and went out of their way to accomodate me. That's 5-star service! I will definitely look first at this hotel anytime I'm headed back to Port A.

"A welcome stay"

Lad S, Lexington, Virginia 09/02/2016

We stayed three nights and mostly explored the many bird sanctuaries nearby. The motel is clean and tidy, the breakfast was good, and the staff are nothing short of superb. It's not a luxurious place, but it's more than adequate. The town is a normal beach community with a few decent restaurants.


ECITYNC, North Carolina 09/02/2016

We spent a long weekend in Port A and stayed at the Best Western. What a nice place. Clean, people were friendly, breakfast was good and plentiful. It is a non smoking hotel which to us is a huge plus. Within walking distance of beach and restaurants. Pool was warm even when it wasn't so warm out. Rooms were very quiet and well kept. Nothing negative to say about the Port A Best Western. Thanks for the great stay!

"awesome place. worth the money"

Myra O, houston, United States 08/02/2016

The room were very clean and the breakfast was awesome. The staff was very friendly. we had no problem. close access to the beach. pool was heated. it was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. we will def stay here again.

"Great Value and Location"

Jeanette V, San Antonio, United States 06/02/2016

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"

Lynn T, San Marcos 05/02/2016

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.

"Great hotel."

Arthur H, Katy, United States 30/01/2016

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"

User 25/01/2016

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.


Martha K, Georgetown, United States 11/01/2016

They were concerned, awesome, perfect, and amazing! The staff was positive and happy. They helped us plan our restaurants and excursions. The free coffee and water were great. We will go back! Highly recommend!

""The best place to stay""

Diana G, Parker, Colorado 03/01/2016

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. :)

"Safety and a Good Nights rest"

User 01/01/2016

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 to stay"

User 30/12/2015

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

"Nice place."

User 25/12/2015

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"

zulusaa6, san antonio 08/12/2015

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.

"Another Amazing Stay"

Duane K, Albuquerque 04/12/2015

Not one complaint. I just love this hotel and the staff! Close to the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping. Wonderful breakfast (Texas shaped waffles and all the juice choices). The staff just goes above an beyond every time we have stayed here.

"Three blocks from the beach. Great place to stay"

Marlene B, Deweyville, UT 22/11/2015

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!

All the staff we had contact with were very friendly, helpful and sincere. Nice to see the same faces every year. That says a lot about the management of this facility. Outstanding customer service.

After living in Port Aransas for 28 years, we still come back 3 or 4 times a year to visit. This is our home away from home! Great location, the manager & staff are accommodating & friendly. The pool is now heated which is a wonderful touch. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean, the breakfast was good with a very nice attendant. We love it!

"Always A Good Experience-Walk To The Beach"

Steven S, San Antonio, Texas 02/11/2015

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.

"Another fine stay"

"wedding trip"

User 24/10/2015

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.

"Great beach hotel"

Jane C, Ft Lauderdale 21/10/2015

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.

"Long weekend get-a-away"

Thomas V, Columbus, United States 21/10/2015

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!

"Exceeded Expections!"

Mary W, Kerrville, United States 20/10/2015

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.

"Excellent Stay"

Donald G, Panama City, United States 19/10/2015

Great place to stay. The manager, Tammie, runs a great hotel and her hard work shows. The rooms are clean and comfortable along with the hotel staff that is very friendly and attentive to everyone's needs.

"Great Plave to Stay"

Best Western really goes out of their way to make vacation enjoyable. From hot breakfast, freshly cooked to movie sized snacks available in lobby for purchase, Rooms are clean and quiet. Whole property is very well designed.


Michelle B, SAN ANTONIO, United States 14/10/2015

We decided to take a last minute trip to the beach and have always loved the Best Western Ocean Villa! When we called, they were able to accommodate my family and relatives in a pinch! Great staff and hotel!

"Great value"

User 12/10/2015

Friendly staff, short walk to the beach and great breakfast. Stayed in October so I'm sure the rate was lower but I felt it was a great value for the quality of the hotel. The room was clean and freshly prepared each day.

"Nice place to stay in Port A"

GUMO1, Cedar Park TX 10/10/2015

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights during the first week of October. Clean and comfortable room. Staff was very nice. The breakfast was very good. 3 blocks from the beach. Would definitely stay again.

"Great Deal"

Three blocks from the beach, easy drive to all island amenities. The best time to go is sunday through wednesday you get the best rates here. Also the rooms are very comfortable, no carpet only laminated floors so build up of sand. Extremely helpful staff.

"booking thru a 3rd party"

Lynn T, San Marcos 29/09/2015

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"

User 26/09/2015

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.

"Clean and Quite"

We spent one night here and found everything very clean and quite. Everyone was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was ok for a free buffet, the lady in charge was very sweet and helpful. No problems with anything, we definitely would stay here again.

"Best Western Rocks!"

Arthur E, Marble Falls, TX, United States 16/09/2015

Have stayed in a few motels lately & we never go wrong with Best Western no matter what state. When visiting Port A we always stay here! We receive reasonable rates, CLEAN rooms, comfy big beds, lovely/decent decor (not any of this "old" junk here") and a great FREE breakfast. Best Western staff has been friendly & helpful & referred us to a wonderful restaurant. Thanks!
