    « Our Honeymoon trip »

    We took a belated honeymoon and the BW Beachside worked quite well for us. When we told them we were on our honeymoon, they upgraded our room free of charge. It was clean and quiet and the staff accommodated us with extra towels and housekeeping always respected the do not disturb sign if we slept in. Pool and hot tub were quiet as the whole property in general. Not right on the beach but it was only a block away. Breakfast was pretty boring after the first day. We preferred to eat fresh fruit and granola bars purchased from the grocery store. It was a great bargain for the week, so no complaints. Blackbeard's restaurant is a 2 minute walk away and was fantastic. We ate and drank there 3 times!

    « Beachside! I don't think so! »

    At the very least I expect toiletries to be provided without asking and I assume that if the bath tub is being cleaned regularly, maids would report to maintenence that they don't drain properly. Disappointed!!

    « Our 15th Anniversary »

    Great room, great staff, great hot breakfast! One concern, on Saturday 5/5/18 a family staying at the hotel had friends and family over to have a pool party and grill out in the parking lot. There was no room for any other guests to use pool or hot tub.

    « The rooms were good but there was a smell »

    The room were looked cleaned and the bed were great , breakfast was good..the only thing was a smell in the halls and rooms to like wet towel .. I don't know we're it came from . Everything was ok except for that

    We were impressed from the minute we checked in. The staff was very helpful getting su a room that was convenient. The room was very nicely arranged and enjoyable. It was very clean and well stocked. The breakfast was very good and had eggs, link sausage, fresh pancakes as well as the normal continental breakfast offerings. We really liked this hotel and its convenience to the beach. It has become our go to hotel on the Island.

    « A nice stay »

    Short review, but extremely clean hotel, 3 minute walk from the beach, Karina is an incredible employee and so accommodating. The night auditor on Saturday I'm pretty certain was watching something... inappropriate in the office, and was so rude when asked for a simple amenity, after a thank you. Other than that one blemish, this stay was wonderful, and I'll be coming back!

    « Stay at Bets Western on South Padre »

    Hotel is in good condition and rooms are well appointed. Only stayed one night and did not use pool/fitness, etc. I have stayed here before and I would stay again. The hotel has reasonable rates during off-season.

    « Great, except... »

    My husband and I were staying at the hotel on SPI to attend a wedding. The room was very nice, the staff was helpful and courteous. However, the breakfast could have been better. The eggs were spongy and tasted like cardboard. The oatmeal station consisted of small containers with Sugar, raisins, and packets of instant oatmeal but no microwave. I took milk from the carafe for cereal and took the elevator up to my room to make the oatmeal. The pancake machine was deceiving. You press a button to deliver pancakes and the picture shows two full size pancakes covering the entirety of the plate. But what resulted was 2 quarter sized pancakes that could have fit in the palm of my hand. They were cute and tasted fine but not what I was expecting.

    « Great place to stay with cooler ice bucket! »

    We stay a week and had no issues at all. It was with in walking distance of a lot of things but there is free transportation on the island so you don't really have to drive anywhere. The walk to the beach was very short. The room was very clean. The breakfast was good. My favorite part of this hotel is that they have an old ice bucket attached to the ice machine so that you can fill up your cooler with ease. I have never seen that before and it is the Best!! The pool was clean and had about 6 lounge chairs which all week was plenty. The staff was great as well. If we ever go back to SPI, we will definitely be staying here! The price was amazing too!!

    « So so »

    The carpet smells like old shoes so they try to cover that smell with some pine product. Room was very clean. In the shower I had the conditioner and the body wash both empty so I let the lady from the front desk know about this. Next day I headed for the beach and when I came back my room has not been cleaned up and of course they didn't refill the bottles. I let her know about this at check out but she only said Oh! I'm sorry ?bout that. Breakfast is included so it's a food deal. I hope they change carpets soon.

    « Clean and Very Friendly Front Desk »

    Clean hotel. Beds good. Shower had decent pressure. Karina must be the best front desk employee we have ever met! So friendly, fun and helpful. Weather was crap so we cancelled our 3rd night. General manager was helpful with our cancellation as well. Breakfast was so so but probably what the BW chain offers. BW could upgrade breakfast to compete with Hilton and others

    « Spring »

    Price was right for week day. Did not bring makeup wipes because I assumed there would be some available as most BW provided them. Told by front desk persons I could go to dollar store near by. Did find a small roach that was in shower.

    « Refreshing Stay »

    Room was clean, staff was friendly, experience was pleasurable. This location is close to the beach so access was very quick. We could literally walk to the beach in a few minutes. Close to plenty of places to eat and engage in other activities.

    Everything was perfect! Very accommodating! Arrived spring break @ 2 am with a mix up on VRBO condo rental and just needed sleep!! They were extremely helpful and Breakfast was a great bonus!! They actually voluntarily gave us a better rate because we wanted 2 rooms because we had 2 teenage boys that prefered to have separate rooms!! Place was clean...happy we ended up there!!

    « Definitely Recommend! »

    This hotel was a great place to stay, especially for the low price! The staff was always helpful and genuinely seemed to love helping us with whatever we needed. The rooms were very clean. The beds were comfortable. The only negative thing about the room was that there was very little countertop space in the bathroom. The hotel was a very short walk to the beach. I actually kind of enjoyed how this hotel was further away from some of the busier parts of the island because it seemed to be quiet and more peaceful. The outdoor pool and hot tub were clean and enjoyable. Breakfast was decent and included a couple types of cereal, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, packaged oatmeal, rotated hot stuff depending on the day (eggs, omelets, bacon, and sausage), pastries, yogurt, toast, and fruit. Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay on South Padre. Even though it is not directly on the beach, it is only a short walk away. And it is definitely worth the little extra walk for the service and quality you receive.

    « Nice place to stay »

    Couldn't have been better. Everyone was available to answer questions and help if needed. Close to most attractions and day trips are doable. Walking distance from a lot of things if you are mobile. I was an enjoyable time. Maybe again in the future.

    Our room was clean and spacious, bed was super comfy, and loved the big walk-in shower. Hot breakfast was exceptionally good. Pancakes are great! Desk attendants were friendly and so helpful. Overall great place to stay. Liked the central location on the island. Hope to be back again.

    « Best Western Beachside »

    While the hotel was beautiful and the staff was great (Loved Karina!!!) the room had humidity issues big time and breakfast was strange. The girl who was to fill up the food seemed to wait until nothing was left even though there was hours yet for the breakfast time. Several times I needed to ask her to fill things.

    « Fresh and updated »

    Very comfortable room. We stayed in a King room which had plenty of space to spread out in. Included a small refrigerator, sofa and cafe table. The room was recently updated and was extremely clean. Location is within easy walking distance to beach access. My only criticisms are... they could provide better towels as they were very small and almost thread bare, and... they use a mattress protector on the bed that has a topping of plastic which you hear evertime you role over plus it doesn't circulate well. The mattress was comfortable however.

    « Nice »

    This is a nice place. My husband was pleasantly surprised. Newly renovated, clean, comfy beds. Breakfast is good for a free breakfast. Good coffee, juice, clean. There is a lot of seating, but some people do tend to linger and chat with their friends. I never had trouble finding a place to sit down. My only complaint is the bathroom. It is very small, no vanity for any toiletries of curling irons, etc. I get it that they did the best they could with the space. It all looks good. I would recommend taking down the art work over the desk, and placing a mirror. This would have solved my problem. We stayed there four nights, and were pleased with the value of this hotel.

    This hotel, renovated 4 years ago is in very good shape. We were treated very well at the front desk by very friendly, helpful people. There were no glitches and the third floor was recommended as quiet and it was as promised. The breakfast area and staff was excellent as were the cleaning staff.. a well run hotel with comfortable rooms, close to resteraunts and shopping.

    « Week stay »

    Not a lot to do if weather is cold and wet. Not hotels fault. Bathroom shower was wonderful. Although fan and light should be on separate switches. Didn't find staff friendly although they answered our questions. We were there for a week and maids kept forgetting to restock important things like coffee and cups. Always running to front desk. Beds weren't always remade very well either. Breakfast did get boring after a week. Lots of seniors around area. Good location with many restaurants around.

    « Excellent Hotel in SPI »

    We stayed in this very nice hotel for 6 nights when visiting South Padre Island for Christmas. We originally booked for 4 nights but stayed for 6 at the end. The hotel was excellent located, close to the beach and had all we needed for our stay. The room was very accommodating and was comfortable for our stay. Sitting place by window was very good. Breakfast had tasty variety. All in all we had very nice stay.

    « Clean and Reasonable »

    We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and overall found it very satisfactory. The front desk staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Room cleaning was a little spotty on mirrors and chrome and used paper cups were not disposed of. Walls were thin. Heat and A/C were very good. Bathroom fan noise was annoying. Continental breakfast was average, but the coffee was excellent!

    « Nice and clean!! »

    I stayed here for one night to attend a nearby function. This hotel was pretty great! The staff were very friendly at check in. My room was nicely decorated, smelled good, and appeared very clean. The bathroom was clean as well. My only complaint with the room is the very small counter space in the restroom....there was really no room to spread out and place toiletries. The breakfast was adequate; they had hot items available. Every item of food, from the gravy to the biscuits, to the sausage, and even to the orange juice...was very tasty (and I don't say that a lot about hotel breakfast food!) The beach is a little bit of a walk from the hotel, but it's definitely not far. Just walk away from the hotel and you will find a public access nearby. I have seen some reviews comment on the doors, and how tough they are sometimes to open....I believe the tension on these doors keeps the noise down when they shut. I didn't hear any slamming doors during my stay like I usually do! I'll be back to stay again!

    « Fabulous! »

    We stayed at the Best Western for 3 nights in early February 2018, and enjoyed the hotel greatly! Plan to return next year. Great location (can walk lots of places from the hotel) clean rooms as it was remodeled & is very modern. We didn't get enjoy the pool as the weather was cooler but it appeared to be very nice. One extra that I wasn't expecting is there is washers & dryers on the 2nd floor if you need to use them. Breakfast was average... nothing special. Beds are comfortable & shower is very spacious. Can't go wrong staying here!

    « Wonderful place - comfy beds »

    So you are wondering if the wonderful reviews match the affordable prices in the winter and the high prices during Spring Break and yes they do. Notice the high ratings even when their is something negative written? Why? Because the place is what it is: tastefully remodeled, hot breakfast included with the rate, exceedingly clean rooms, friendly long term senior citizen residents and temporary guests, a hot tub that's hot, an up to date gym, a clean guest laundry, and easy free parking. The hotel parking area is small - but first come first serve so the family can park together. I am unsure how that works during Spring Break and summer. The free island shuttle stops on either side of the Main Street next to the hotel. If it's hot - bring a hat, umbrella for extra shade and sunscreen. The hotel has no medicines for headaches so go across the street to the store for most things you may need. The WiFi works. Sometimes only one computer works so bring your own. The lobby is small and crowded when the hotel is full so don't plan to get business accomplished in the lobby while the family sleeps. Staff - The staff try to please. The owners are usually on-site and address issues right away. The walk to the beach is 2 long city blocks so plan to bring a wagon if you have kids. Look at the weather forecast and plan your activities accordingly. Also check the island website for links to the beach flag warning system. I prefer the privacy of a condo but this hotel was considerably cleaner and more comfortable than the condo with a horrible bed that I had rented through Airbnb. The rooms looked just like the photos - small but neat. I liked the meticulously clean room and bed with pillows that allowed great back support. The reviews helped me chose this lovely hotel. The negative comments are true and prepared me for my stay. Be sure to read them. I would stay there again and highly recommend it to others. I wish all remodels were this well done. I have stayed in height star hotels and received far less and found dirtier rooms. This hotel is a great value. The photos are exactly how the room looked when I arrived. I hope you found this review helpful. It's hard to know what people want to know but I try to put myself in the reader's shoes. Pictures can be deceiving but it really was that nice and if you go during the ?off? season the rates are amazing.

    « Reasonable Rates »

    Our room was large with sink, microwave, mini-fridge, and small table. We stayed four days quite comfortably. Staff is outstanding. Major weakness is the rather basic breakfast. A little extra variety would be quite nice for those on extended stay. Talked with several residents who were staying two weeks to one month.

    We spent 3 nights at the Best Western Beachside Inn. This recently renovated hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms are spacious and well appointed.

    « Cold January stay »

    Stayed 2 nights at the start of January. The rooms were very nice and clean. Beds were comfortable and the morning breakfast hit the spot. The people that worked there were friendly and accommodating. The only thing I could suggest is changing the room decor. I personally didn't care for it but I suppose it's appropriate for a beachside inn. I would recommend staying here again, I've stayed in several properties on SPI and this is the best. Note it's a very short walk to the beach - it is NOT directly connected to the beach as the name may suggest.

    « Clean but tough to get into »

    The rooms are clean and service at this hotel are good. Friendly front desk. The spring loads on the front room door is so hard it makes it tough to get into it without a body slam. Anyone with a slight or better handicap will probably have a problem getting into the room. The bathroom doors are also spring loaded and you can't keep them open if you so desire. At night it is pitch black in there. Breakfast is so-so. Frozen Eggo's with a toaster that doesn't work very well and cold eggs is not my idea of a good breakfast. To bad, minor fixes could make this place lots better.

    « Wherever you Travel Best Weatern offers Value - give them a try. »

    Traveling is expensive so whenever I can find a room for under a $100 a night including breakfast it's a deal. I've stayed in Best Westerns across America and the Beachside Inn is equally fantastic. Great beds, hot water, great breakfast, safe location, clean and I think reasonably new.

    « Finally, a clean hotel in South Padre Island! »

    This was the third place we moved to on a family trip to South Padre Island. The Air B&B and the previous hotel both were pest infested. Not here. Cleanliness comes at the price of the hotel and rooms being almost sterile, which is fine with us.

    Great Hotel with super friendly staff. We were there 2 nights/ 3 days and loved it! Everything was exactly as the hotel pictures looked. It is half a block away from the beach, well within walking distance. They have a continental breakfast w/ egg and sausage and have pancakes instead of the normal waffles. Will definitely be coming back !!

    Not happy about hearing every little thing in the hallways and outside. Nice location and very nice hotel to bad the wall are paper thin. Also the rooms only have a thin shad in the windows and not a drape to block out the sun in the morning.

    « Excellent place to stay »

    This was a good place to stay. It was quiet, and close to the beaches, stores, and post office. The staff at breakfast was excellent about making sure everything was stocked. Because I'm on an extended trip, the guest laundry was handy. The fitness room was bigger than most of the other motels I've been staying at. It was a little harder to spot than some because the sign by the road is fairly small and you need to go on one of the side streets.

    We usually stay at a Best Western if we go somewhere for a few days. This one is more modern than others we have been too. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathroom seemed a bit more spacious, although I would like some more space to put our stuff down instead of the limited space around the sink. We stayed in a double queen room with two adults and two small children and that was comfortable. Breakfast is standard to Best Western, but it's all you need. If you prefer something fancier, then you can always go out. Staff was friendly and responsive! We would go back here.

    « Great for the price but the breakfast was horrid! »

Pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit juice, fruit, a few pastries, yogurt. Location: within walking distance to the beach. You can see the water from the hotel but the beach is a block away. Neighborhood seemed pretty quiet. There are a lot of eateries nearby.

    « Very nice hotel »

    I was surprised that the hotel wasn't a Best Western Plus. Maybe the room numbers differentiate the BW naming levels. The property seemed New, however I believe it had gone through extensive renovations. Our room was tastefully appointed. The furniture and furnishings were well done. Several areas to plug in phones, iPads etc... Breakfast good and as expected for a BW property. The Hotel is roughly a block away from the beach. There are several restaurants in the area as well across the bridge to Port Isabella. Certainly met our expectations. Would recommend to anyone going to South Padre.

    « Cleanest Best Western. »

    We were concerned because this hotel was not on the beach! When we arrived we took a walk and found the beach a very short walk. This hotel is one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed in. The ladies cleaning our room were so hard working and did an amazing job. The hotel was very quiet and the breakfast was good and nice to not have to leave the hotel to eat in the morning. We will be back and highly recommend the Best Western Beachside Inn.

    I stayed here because of the rate and my experience with Best Western in the past. I crossed my fingers and I was so happy. The hotel looks recently updated. Everything was clean and everyone was nice. The beach was a block away. Plenty of food and souvenir stores near by. The internet connection was good and I was able to watch Netflix with no interruptions. Breakfast was ok, but great for free.

    « Good Value & Decent Hot Breakfast except the Eggs »

    The room was nice. We really like a super cold night sleeping temperature and the AC didn't quite get there for us, but it was ok. The breakfast was good. It does have hot food choices such as bacon or sausage, pancakes, biscuits and gravy in addition to the normal cold options. I really love some good eggs, but these were out of a box I think, so the eggs were a big no go for me. We were also on the 3rd floor and I wish there was an ice machine on our level, instead we had to go to the 2nd floor for ice. Mark at the front desk was our go to guide for local flavor and activities which was great since we had never been to SPI. Overall, we would stay here again, but I would definitely ask for a 1st or 2nd floor room to be closer to the ice machine.

    The hotel itself is very small but nicely decorated. The breakfast was good and it's within close proximity to the beach. The staff are very courteous. I had two issues though. First, I had to ask for a change of bedsheets because one set of bedsheets in our double room had visible stains on them. Second, we saw several roaches in the room, which was disgusting and a real disappointment.

    « Avoid room 210 »

    If you like the view of the roof and only the roof this is the room for you, positive side is the roof shades the room from the sunlight. The breakfast area is only large enough to accommodate a fraction of the guests, so eat early or eat in your room.

    Our stay was fine. The hotel was clean, the staff helpful, the communal areas and bedrooms were well kept. But it seemed expensive. While near to the beach, this is not 'beachside'. Maybe this is typical of hotels in this area, we haven't been before.

    « Good on the outside, bad inside! »

    This hotel has the best review in trip advisor, but I don't know why. Yes, it seems like a new girl, so it seemed nice. However, the room was small, swimming pool was very small, and the room service let a lot to be desired. The breakfast area only had a few tables and you have to wait for people to leave. The breakfast choices were poor, with only a couple of got items, and they were the same every day. The only good thing was that the hotel is close to the beach, but many others are also close, so this was not a differentiated factor. I know understand why it was the only hotel with rooms available.

    Me and my daughter stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The island was busy but the hotel. Good breakfast, nice friendly staff. Good location, it's like 2 blocks from the beach. It's the nicest dollar general I've ever seen right next to it. It's in a location that's not as busy (noisy and traffic) as the spots towards the bridge. The bed was comfortable, the room was nice. Very clean, looks like they recently remodeled with new furniture and the decor, very new looking. I was on the first floor. It was quiet inside the hotel despite all of the partying going on the island. The pool is small but I guess we just caught it at good times when everyone is at the beach. The parking is good also. Would definitely go back.

    « Could be better »

    During our stay at the property we were somewhat disappointed in the service delivery. 1. Upon arrival the elevator was not working, which required us to haul our luggage up three flights of stairs after a 5 hour drive to the area. 2. During our stay there were several power outages in the building which caused total loss of power which results into a major security issue. 3. We had minors in our group so we reserved two rooms with a request to at least be on the same floor, which they were not able to accomplish. Based off the first two items, being separated from our children was quite a challenge due to the power issues.

    It started with a phone call before we arrived. The question was, "When will you be here?" We were on our way from the airport in Brownsville to the BW Beachside Inn. Karina was on top of everything and I mean everything. She knew we would be early and gave us a heads up. We stopped and had lunch; still arrived early for a 3PM check in but Karina took care of that, too. Got us in early. The rooms looked brand new. Exceptionally clean. The breakfast is a full breakfast; not a continental. Make your own pancakes, different styles of eggs. Different meats, cereals, fruits, yogurt, and on and on. From 7AM-11AM! Seriously, what other chain does that? Exactly, none that I know of. The customer service is beyond friendly. Everyone works hard at keeping the place neat, clean, and super friendly. They bought our grandson, toys to play with at the beach! Seriously. We went to Dollar General, directly across the street and purchased toys and beach items which we donated to the staff. We certainly didn't expect treatment like that. Decided we would pay it forward for the next folks. I can't say enough about the personal service and kindness extended to my family for four days. When we go back, there's no doubt where we will stay. Great location, great staff= great times. Period. The BW Beachside Inn is independently owned and operated and it shows. Three people=six thumbs up!!

    « Not a "Beachside" hotel!! »

    There is no direct access to the beach as they claim. The picture of the beach access is actually 3 blocks away. You have to walk about two blocks on the street (there is no side walk). This is hard if you have lit ones, rolling a cooler, and carrying stuff for the beach. Even the front desk girl said "yes, I now those pictures are deceiving, we have been trying to take them down". The picture I posted shows the hotel on the far right and how far you have to walk, once you get to the end of the street, you turn right, then the public access to the beach can be seen.

    I stayed 5 days at Best Western Beachside Inn with my family. Very well located, closed to the beach and very good restaurants on a walking distance. My two 4-6 years old girls enjoyed the pool, SPA and free breakfast every morning. The hotel simply feels like new. During weekends the hotel seems to be a little full due to residents from Brownsville and Reynosa-Matamoros but after these days the hotel was very relaxing. The room is modern, clean and offers a microwave and a little refrigerator. The clean service room was very good and I could see how they clean even the smallest details. PROs Breakfast was very good but area is limited. If you go to breakfast at busy hour will be a little crowded. Room space is good; beds are really comfortable No tiny bottles with shampoo! Very good gym. Well-equipped, all machines working good and always clean Coffee and tea available all day Beach at 5 mins walk. A lot of good restaurants at walking distance CONs Pool is accessible from parking lot without security card, and I did feel during Sunday that people not hosted in hotel were using the pool. Even with a dog! Pool rules must include dress code and music from guest. The staff did everything for my family to have a wonderful vacations and the made it! I'm pretty sure I will be there next year, and who knows? Maybe this year too.

    « Decent hotel »

    Clean and friendly, but no action was taken over the three hours children in the room above us were jumping from the bed onto the floor while we were trying to relax and go to sleep. Also, though the bathrooms had been updated, the counter space was practicallly nonexistent.

    The hotel was great. Breakfast was really good and walking distance to the beach. Centrally located in South Padre Island so it is close to any activities but away from all of the hustle and bustle on the weekends. No complaints whatsoever.

    « PERFECT HOTEL »

    Me and my husband had an anniversary. Management was the best I have ever met. If you need everything to be clean and to be clean go to this hotel. It will go above and beyond your expectations. ANYTIME I find myself at South Padre Island I will stay at best western. It is walking distance to the beach. The pool is relaxing and breakfast was a great bonus!

    « Very Nice!!! »

    Everything was very nice, rooms were clean, Everything we needed was available.Very helpful, courteous staff. Wonderful continental breakfast, very clean area to dine. Everything was close by, the beach, eating places, little shops, just overall a wonderful stay. Only one problem the rooms we were staying would lock, and unlock, with the card key, only problem is that if you would push the door in force the room doors would open fully, very unsafe, and no privacy, didn't fill safe leaving any personal items in the room.

    « Horrible Management »

    I had the worst experience securing a hotel block rate at this property. I was quoted at $79.99 for a group of 20 rooms. Months later when our guests try to book, management goes back on the original rate, inflates it to $199.99 and blames the miscommunication on a past, former employee who is no longer with them. I was left scrambling to find other housing options for our 10 year reunion. I specifically want to call out the poor customer service skills of the manager, who seems to have wanted to lose the business of 20 patrons.

    « Clean but noisy hotel »

    The hotel is super clean and the staff is very friendly. However, there were noisy kids, yelling, screaming and banging on doors all night long. This is where I wished the staff would have been firm and would have done something. In the morning, I spoke with someone at the front desk and was told they did address it. But the racket continue throughout the entire night. Unfortunately I will never go back and stay there again. Greatly disappointed.

    « Not Beachside »

    Very well remodeled property with good access to main street, but is not on the beach. It is next to great dining and a short walk to the beach. Breakfast was minimal and lost its appeal when presented on cheap paper plates and very poor plastic cutlery. We went out after first day. Pool is not a benefit to the property as it is very small and almost on the street. Housekeeping for stay over guests is left until last, so request early service if you wish room done early.

    Best Western Beachside Inn is not ON the beach but it is a great, updated hotel right in the middle of things on south Padre at a very reasonable price. Good breakfast, really nice room. pool is nice. real close to the Turtle Rescue and the Birding center as well as plenty of eating places and the theater.

    Room was nice. Bathroom was large. Pool and hot tub were small, but the ocean is a block away with easy access. Check in was fast and easy. Plenty of parking. Close to restaurants and shopping, within walking distance.

    The beds were so comfortable and the room was always clean. The location and the beach access were awesome. By far this hotel exceeded my expectations. I will defiantly choose this hotel again on my next stay.

    « Best lodging choice of the trip. »

    Out of 6 nights spent in a motel during this trip, this was the best value by far. The whole place looked terrific. Friendly staff, wonderful breakfast, the rooms were fantastic. Although it didn't have direct beach access it was within walking distance. Close to shopping and dining options.

    « Clean & Fast »

    Fast service, clean/newly renovated room, exceptional house-keeping, cool/accommodating staff, fair price, quiet room, clean and updated bathroom, Easy access to the beach (walking distance of a few minutes,) excellent continental breakfast with sausages/bacon, fruits, and even yogurt. Can't beat them at their prices. Wish there was a balcony, but that's not significant enough to not give this place 5 stars. Wondeful! Will definitely visit again the next time I'm in SPI.

    The BW Beach side Inn is a very clean , recently renovated property. Location is excellent and it is very reasonably priced, especially with breakfast included. All the help is friendly and it is made for a wonderful time. We also made a couple new friends with other guests staying there.

    « Great hotel Beautiful price!! »

    Beautiful hotel! Newly Renovated! One thing to note is tho the rooms are nice and updated there on the small side. Its not a huge issue but be aware if you plan on having more than 2ppl in the room. John (at the front desk at night)... Super friendly and helpful! The rooms have no patios....Just a window. The beds are super comfy! The pool area isnt big but its still nice. They also have a hot tub in the pool area as well. You dont pay for pool towels. The beach is a block a way. Ull have to cross a street but its just a quiet neighborhood street. Once you cross the street there will be a open parking lot to your right with a crosswalk leading to the beach. Easy-peezy! Theres a seafood restaurant, italian restaurant and Mexican restaurant right in the area. Definitely walkable if your into that. The hotel is located off a main street so theres always a restaurant, gas station, souvenirs shop located nearby. Free breakfast was nice ESP when you have kiddos. Itll be great if they made it last till 12pm and not 10am?? It consists of oatmeal, yogurts, fruits, a pancake maker, omelets that are made & ready and a daily "pick of the day" of either bacon, sausage patties or sausage links. Amongst juices & water. Just a side note... If youve never been to South padre... Once leaving the hotel & heading toward the main street.... Make a right! Keep alllllllll the way down to the end of the island (where u literally can go no further) ..... Big Sand Dunes!!! Park your car and walk up em.... Beautiful sight! You're Welcome ??

    I spent a very relaxing night at this beautiful sparkling clean bright hotel 3 blocks from the beach. Quiet, great window seat for reading, sparkling glass shower, large TV, standard breakfast included.

    « Great place ! »

    A totally renovated, squeaky clean hotel. Has enough lighting to read comfortably, enough seating so that you do not have to park yourself on the bed. Good bed AND pillows. Nice pool area and an easy 5 minute walk to the beach. First time we have seen bacon as a hotel breakfast choice. We were really happy with our choice.

    « Clean, nice breakfast. »

    It is not located on the beach, but has a small pool and hot tub. Nice hot breakfast with lots of options, very clean rooms and helpful staff. We asked for a quiet room and they gave us a very nice quiet one. Clean small fitness center with new equipment. We would recommend this to anyone.

    « Really nice »

    The hotel was really nice, and so close to the beach, (less than 5 min walking) the only upside down, it is in between the island which means no ocean view. Looks like it has been remodeled, as matter of fact when we check in we were informed that the pool was closed for remodeling but it will be open soon, my husband and I didn't mind since we were looking forward to spend time on the beach. Our room was really nice and clean, it definitely meet our expectations Breakfast in the morning was delicious, my husband was impressed of the different options. Really nice place will definitely book again for our next trip to the island.

    « "Disappointing" »

    First off the hotel doesn't have safes in the room. Therefore, I had to take my purse every time we left the room. I'm glad I did because I was able to minimize my loss. We checked in last Wednesday and out yesterday. While I was packing I noticed that my diamond hoop earrings were missing. I specifically remember putting them in my toiletry bag on Thursday night. The cleaning crew came in each day and cleaned the room, we also had maintenance come in to service the toilet. Once we packed up to leave, I stopped by the front desk to talk to the manager about my missing jewelry, he checked the log of who accessed the room and then told me that they really can't do anything other than file a complaint. He went on the say that they're cleaners have been with them for a number of years....as if this made it ok! We will not be staying at this hotel ever again and I urge all the are interested to be very careful. I loved those earrings and they weren't cheap but overall I feel violated due to the loss. This incident just about ruined my vacation and knowing that the hotel is doing NOTHING to fix this makes it even worse. Again, be careful and if you choose to stay here, utilize the safe deposit boxes that they keep in the lobby that they didn't tell us about until the day before we checked out.

    Hotel appears to be new, so clean and in shape. Construction still going on, but they were polite and worked around us. Front Office very attentive. Price good for being near the beach. Would stay again.

    « Padre Weekend Getaway »

    This hotel was really great for the price. It is being renovated, we had the King Suite which was nice and very clean. The staff was very courteous and attentive, they even let us check in 6 hours early for 20.00 extra which was a win after an 8 house drive. It is in the perfect location to everything and walking distance from the beach. The bed was a tiny but hard for me but my wife loved it. The only thing I will say is when we booked it they showed a picture that shows as if the hotel is literally on the beach and you can walk out the door and hit the sand. Even though it's not it was very close. I can say we would definitely stay there again.
