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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tammie Abel helped me out and fixed any problems that came up , people always have problems when traveling but it's nice to have someone like Tammie who will work with you and listen to you Our room was hot and she fixed it Tammie earned my future stats and earned my future business at the Port Aransas facility Pool is warm and rooms were clean We had a noise issue and it was fixed too Can't ssy enough on how impressed I was with Tammie
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.
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?
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
Very nice property in excellent location. Super clean, modern rooms with comfortable beds. No bugs!! Nice hot breakfast with many options including fresh fruit salad. Heated pool. Great off season rates.
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 lady...my.lazy 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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
outstanding ...we needed quiet and rest and beach and got it all with Best western classthis hotel is modermn and you would never know there had been a hurricane. easy in and out ,secure parking ,friendly staff ,and the whiteist bath I have seen in a while.
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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 ??
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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
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.
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.
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.
check in was very fast and easy. room was clean and very comfortable. the parking lot was clean, a good indicator. swimming pool was perfect. water was clear and cool. breakfast was very good. all things considered it was an awesome stay.
All the staff are friendly and go above and beyond to be sure you have a great stay, you are treated like part of a family. The Breakfast is excellent and the rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. This is the place to stay in Port Aransas
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...
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.
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!!
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
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.
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!
The Port Aransas Best Western is pleasant and within walking distance to the beach. Good daily breakfast and pleasant employees. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again. It was great to see that Port Aransas has recovered so well from last year's storm!
Best Western in Port Aransas has a great location, easy to get in and out of. Short quick access to the beach from the hotel. Great places to eat nearby. Plenty of gift shops to go to. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Greta experience all around,
One of the best hotels I have stayed at, all staff members were extremely helpful and service could not have been better. Always willing to help with directions and provided local knowledge of places to see or visit.
Smaller motel with exterior corridors. Newly remodeled and clean. Safe neighborhood. Several blocks to the beach; we ended up just driving. Very nice breakfast, and breakfast room attendant, Cynthia, was wonderful. Would stay again.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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. 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.
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.
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.
this place was very nice and clean the beach is so close you can hear the ocean the staff so amazing and friendly the breakfast was so good, this is just a wonderful place to stay,i would recommend it to any one for a trip
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Excellent Place, SSuper GGreatP People!!! Go to B/W to see the complete review! Everyone went Beyond Our expectations.!! Would recommend this best western to Everyone! Everyone Should Enjoy this Best Western, and Join in for B/W rewards . We have been loyal Members since 1997.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Clean room, friendly service, good food at breakfast, clean pool and relax and location too, stuff and Specially Tammy is awesome ! We were very happy with this hotel and recommend this hotel to every one .
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.
Super friendly staff (front desk, breakfast, housekeeping, and maintenance staff) and great location (right down the road from the beach, near shops, and restaurants). Enjoyed hot breakfast, pool, and outdoor showers.
Very nice hotel. Very clean, recently remodeled. Loved having the breakfast tacos...nice treat that I have never seen available at a hotel. Good location to beach access. Highly recommend this hotel!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Super hotel close to the beach and Old Town Port Aransas. Walking distance to shopping, grocery, restaurants and beach!!!! Wonderful beds with fluffy pillows and great shower!!!! Have fun in Port Aransas!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!
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.
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!
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
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
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.
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!!!!
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!
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.
go there don't waist another min got the time get in the car and go great pool quiet put yiur car in nteral and roll down to the beach gotta buy a pass $12.00 that's ok park anyware on the beach...great pier right there
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.
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.
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.
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).!
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.
always get 5 star service. The location is perfect. great value for such a very nice hotel. beautiful rooms, feature local artist paintings, expansive breakfast, extremely clean property, always looking for ways to ensure the experience is the best for guests.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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?
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.
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..
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.
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.
This place works, very good breakfast. The staff is out to help you enjoy your stay. Will stay here anytime in the area. It is convenient to everything that I wanted to see in the area. Easy walk to several nearby restaurants.
Clean and reasonably priced! We loved this place, exactly what it said on the tin! The pool was lovely and warm and it was a great position in town and the staff, especially the manageress, were very friendly and helpful.
We were well taken cared of. Got good information about beaches, food and other experiences. Very welcoming personal whom wanted to make the best stay for us as possible we enjoyed the stay an will stay longer next time
One of the Best Western Hotels we have stayed in with our 4 grandkids. Service is great, very clean and modern. Pool very clean and warm. Breakfast excellent and very well presented. Would stay there again for sure,
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We stayed here last year,so we knew what to expect. We got in around 4:30. So we sat by the pool in the sun. Felt good. The room was nice and we had a king size bed. Very nice. Nice shower. That is about all I need to be happy. We had a great breakfast that comes with the room. We will stay here again next year.
This 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.
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.
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.
The Best Western was in a great location just minutes from the beach. Everyone was friendly. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Pool was nice and clean. We were extremely happy with our stay!
Hotel was near my fishing charter boat, only stayed the night, was there for A very short time, so, didn't have A much of vacation there, but the room was clean, hotel staff was great, breakfast was good, little older hotel then some on the island, but was great for our need's, price was good, will stay again
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!!!!!!
I recently stayed here with my family while in town for a friend's wedding. The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was clean but the floor had that grimy feel that you often run into near the beach. We booked an oversized suite, which was nice since we were travelling with two small children. The hotel is a few blocks from the beach. The walk is close enough that my 3 year old was able to make it down there, but if you are carrying a lot of beach gear you might want to drive.
I have been staying at the Best Western Port Aransas once weekend each year for several years now and I have always had a pleasant experience. The management is continually making improvements and I love the new decor in the rooms. I am always impressed with the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff. I highly recommend this property as a great place to stay!
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.
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
Nice rooms nice staff breakfast is the usual coffee all day goid Internet close yo a lot of things will come back 200 characters us too long for a review but it says I need yo do this only 17 more whew
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
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.
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.
We drove down to Port A from Ft Worth for a fishing trip and mini vacation late Monday night 9/19 and arrived shortly after daybreak Tuesday morning. We were allowed to check in early at no extra charge and it was much appreciated as we were looking to get settled in and relax after the long nights drive.The room rate was very reasonable and we found the hotel grounds to be picture perfect. Our room was very neat and clean and well maintained and the cleaning staff came by sometime later, while we were out running some errands and even replaced 2 wash cloths and a face towel that we just used to freshen up. The Hotel was easily accessible to shops and restaurants, quiet at night and the continental breakfast was well stocked and quite good compared to most. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff again was top notch. Glad we booked this hotel and will definitely stay here again.
This is the best hotel and we will definitely be back. The staff is amazing and their manager Tammie is so professional. The breakfast is full of variety and their hostess Lupita keeps it stocked and delicious. She greeted us with a smile and fresh over easy eggs each morning. The beds were cozy and rooms were pretty. Very close to beach and everything else.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 !
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.
When we come to Port A we stay here. The location is great, the employees at the hotel are super nice and always very accommodating. The free breakfast is good, just what is needed before heading to the beach. The maids keep the rooms really clean, and we always see the caretakers around the property picking up and cleaning the pool. Much better than renting a condo/house that I have to clean while on vacation!!
Hotel recently had a face lift. Rooms have wood floors and a comfy bed. Rooms also were very quiet. Could not hear the baby crying next door til you stepped outside the door. Only reason did not give 5 stars the bathtub/toilet area needs upgrade. Water pressure was good tub finishing around fixtures seems Wornin down. Breakfast was really good. Texas size waffles, (toppings, whip cream, cinnamon, strawberry, chocolate chips) stuff to make breakfast tacos, eggs, hash browns sausage oatmeal fruit cottage cheese toast, cereal Folgers coffee, juices, milk, teas! Staff was very helpful and friendly and pool was nice and clean. Would definetly recommend to stay!!! Price was just right.
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!!
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
If you are looking for a place to hang your hat while in Port Aransas, feel comfortable, safe, and trust advice from the staff this is it. It is not a luxury hotel, but it a comfortable stay. It was close enough to the beach and downtown shops. Beds are comfortable. Good pillows, decent breakfast. Interior is well kept. It would be a typical Best Western but the staff makes it. From the staff that checked us in..Chad..he called to make sure we were still coming in while on our way..to the girls that did the breakfast...always kept the area clean and well stocked..to the housekeeper Josie, who made sure our end room was perfect..all were an asset to this hotel and reflects hospitality with a capital H. We left a grey sweatshirt and we were called and asked if we wanted to have it returned. How many places do that? We will be back.
Nothing like walking into a cold room during the summer on a hot Texas day. Jumping into a cold clean swimming pool can't be beat after spending the day on a hot Texas beach. If you forget anything for your trip[, all you have to do is walk across the street. A great shopping experience is just five minutes from the hotel, great deals and unique finds. When it's time to eat, whether it's a quick meal or a dine in, everything is within driving distance.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Overall great time in Port A, definitely stay at BW again. BW is a couple of blocks from the beach(no beach view). The beds were comfortable, the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had something for everyone. Other suggestions if you go, rent a cart for the beach (well worth the money), Pizza buffet across from BW is good for the money, Virginia's Seafood also really good! Plenty of beach you do not feel crowded. The beach is clean.
A 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?
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.
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.
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!
This was just a three day get away for me and my first stay at this Best Western. The room was immaculate, the grounds very well kept, the pool sparkled and the breakfast was very good. It is well located near the beach and restaurants. The manager, Tammy Abel is an energetic, courteous and very helpful individual. I lost a screw from my eyeglasses and the lens came out. I went to the front desk to find a shop that could fix it for me. Tammy took charge and, in no time, she had it fixed. The crew she has reflects her positive, upbeat demeanor and there are genuine smiling faces everywhere and help available anytime. The owners of this Best Western are very fortunate to have Tammy and her staff representing them and I will certainly return on my next trip to Port Aransas.
Nice Best Western. Tammy at the front desk was friendly and helpful with information since this was our first time in Port Aransas. We stayed two nights. As we went to our room they were mopping the porches... the porches!! The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. This is not a fancy hotel. But it is clean and comfortable and no icky sticky musty carpet that is often found in rooms at the beach. My only suggestion to this BW would be to provide softer bath towels. The breakfast actually served real eggs with a few eggs cooked over easy! Kudos to the lady in the kitchen for those! They also had two waffle irons which helped speed things along. You can drive and park right at the beach which is easier than walking and carrying all your stuff. $12 parking pass is required though for beach parking. It is good all year. We would stay here again.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Staff was excellent. Breakfast staff was outstanding. Lobby was extremely clean with no odor. Lobby restrooms were extremely clean. Pool and pool area was was well maintained with ample towels available. All staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast area was extremely clean, and the food was was excellent. Rooms were clean, no odor, and quiet. Beds were comfortable. Rooms had plenty of towels.
We had a mid-week stay last week. One of the best things about recent retirement is midweek prices and the lack of crowds. Shorter ferry line for Port A, too. This hotel has been spruced up recently. Fridge, microwave and coffee in the room with real breakfast in the lobby. Eggs and sausage and breakfast tacos you make yourself plus the usual waffles, etc. After beach shower available to rinse off the sand. Picnic tables and a heated pool. Everyone working there seemed to like it. Smiles and pleasant greetings. We got an extra hour before checkout which was nice. To be on the busy street Ave G, it was quiet at night. But then it was midweek.
This place was as advertised. Reviews are accurate as we had amazing service from everybody front the desk people to housekeeping to the lady keeping up with the breakfast in the morning. The walk to the beach is literally 2 blocks and completely painless but if you decide to drive you can park right on the beach. Hotel was clean, beds comfortable, and a/c works great. Pool area very nice and parking was plentiful and the spaces were larger than normal which was a perk for me always worrying about people dinging my car. Overall, excellent location, great stay, great staff!
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!!!
Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We had just booked on hotels.com 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We thought this location was on the Gulf beach, but it is not. Finding a hotel/motel on the beach in Port Aransas is tricky so you have to really hunt carefully. This Best Western is very nice, clean, friendly staff and is only a short 3-4 block walk to the beach, but we had requested a "water view" of the Gulf, and they said they would give us that if available at check-in. Well, it isn't available ANYTIME--but this was a mistake from the BW central reservations number, not the motel itself. I would recommend this motel, no problem, if being close to the beach with no view of the beach or water is important to you.
The property is very nice with a convenient location to the beach and restaurants. But the customer service is exemplary. My wife and I traveled here for our anniversary, I mentioned to the.front desk that it was our anniversary, when we arrived later that week upon entering our room there was a very sweet note and a bottle of wine for our anniversary! 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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
We love to run away from home and fish at Port Aransas every so often. When we discovered the Best Western Ocean Villa, we fell in love with the accommodations, people and convenience. The manager and staff go out of their way to provide a pleasant stay and they succeed. We stay two to four nights and always leave with another restful and joyful experience. Folks who complain about no carpet in the rooms need to remember they are at the beach where carpet would collect sand and tar then be so unattractive. I say good job with the flooring.
Clean room, comfortable beds. Close to the beach and restaurants so no need to drive around much after you get here. The heated pool looked great but we didn't get in. Best choice for us (3 adults in a 2-queen suite).
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.
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!
We stayed that this hotel 2 1/2 weeks, and WOW we were amazed of how well we were treated by all the staff. Our room was cleaned to perfection everyday without complaints all of our needs were meet. Lupita in the kitchen made sure breakfast was always on time and items were refilled until everyone ate, no one left there hungry. The pool was at 90 degrees which made it a perfect night every night even if the weather was a little chilly, it was perfect to be in it. The best of it all was the location close to everything especially the BEACH. :)
The Port Aransas Best Western has provided us with an excellent place to stay while we visit friends on the way south for the winter. The first time we stayed there we were a bit concerned about being on the first floor in the back. We awoke refreshed, feeling safe, and went and had an EXCELLENT breakfast. We were able to continue on the long journey from Minnesota to South Texas where one of us gets to stay for the winter. Thank you staff of Best Western Port Aransas Texas.
Awesome place with first class service from the friendly staff who would go out of their way to help me and the family. Their pool is heated even in December! Breakfast was good. Can beat two block drive to get to the beach that has unlimited parking spaces
This is an older motel that has been kept up in good shape. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds comfortable. What makes this an excellent hotel is the staff. This is the friendliest, most helpful group that we've met. Kudos to the manager for assembling such a helpful, friendly group.
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.
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.
Loved this hotel. The staff, Jeri, Cindi, and Jacob made us feel welcome and answered all our questions. They were fantastic. Location was great for us. The weather was great for November. The hotel has a heated pool.
Went there for a weekend getaway for our son's birthday. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Room was clean, comfortable and accommodating for our needs. The free breakfast food was wonderful! I recommend this hotel for anyone and we will defiantly stay here again!!!
Best Hotel on the Island. You will love the Ocean Villa and the staff. The pool is heated. The rooms are really nice. the beds are the best I have ever slept in. I like having the internet when I stay.
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!
Had a great 4 night stay at Best Western in Port A. Only 2 blocks from beach. Clean and comfy rooms. Great customer service from all employees. Delicious Breakfast, great way to start the day. We've been here 4 years in a row and will return again, soon!
Wonderful Stay! Great staff! Clean room.. Staff made us feel so welcome and gave us all the info we needed for the area...Had a wonderful stay! Walked all over the island. Just enjoyed all the hotel and island had to offer...
Clean hotel rooms, friendly check in staff who recommended restaurants for us to visit. Located convenient to Port Aransas beach, pier and restaurants. Good breakfast, free WiFi and heated outdoor pool.
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. Grounds and bldg are very well maintained. Lobby and adjoining areas are very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Delicious breakfast with variety of food items. Look forward to our stay every year.
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!
These employees are just amazing! So incredibly helpful and make you feel like your home and have a team of wonderful friends! Words and good reviews just don't do this team justice. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! for everything! I will be back! You all are the dream team of hotels!
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.
Very best service, front desk, breakfast area and housekeeping. always smiling faces and never a problem. close to the beach, quiet at night, heated pool, always instant hot water in the room. GREAT!!!
We always stay here when in Port A and have done so for years. Pool is now heated. Hotel is very accommodating to special requests (we need ground floor due to arthritis). Easy walk to beach and several restaurants.
I had a double-queen bed room, very roomy, clean, comfortable beds, flat screen tv with HBO. Motel had friendly staff, a decent free breakfast, with convenient and close parking. It is located within walking distance (a few blocks) from the beach. Golf carts are the norm in Port Aransas with plenty of places nearby to rent them. There are plenty of good, local restaurants in the area. There is a nice sized, clean outdoor pool.
For the price this is a great beach hotel. They have a nice breakfast every morning. Very nice pool. The room is a good size with a comfortable bed. Had a slight problem one day but told the general manger and it was fixed immediately. Only three blocks from the beach and walking distance to many good places to eat.
Very clean hotel; breakfast was delicious. Had delicious waffles and great coffee (24 hours a day); breakfast staff were very helpful and hospitable as were the front desk staff. Hotel rooms were new, no carpet on floor...very clean...they do not allow pets, which is a plus! One of the main reasons that I chose this hotel. Would definitely come back to this hotel!
The service, cleanliness and breakfast were exceptional. Room was comfortable but not luxurious. Pool area was very attractive, although we did not swim. Compared to what else was available in the area, this hotel was a great decision.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
My wife and I always stay here when we vist Port Aransas,Texas. We always know that it will be clean and comfortable.The staff is very friendly and helpful and they have a great breakfast.The motel is close to the beach and area food places.
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
