This Best Western location on the island in Corpus Christi is absolutely impeccable. The staff are super friendly and even fun to joke around with. The place is spotless inside the rooms as well as the lobby. The breakfast in the morning is so delicious and there is a good spread of items. The waffles are our favorites. We won't stay anywhere but here!

"Nice hotel with Great service!"

While still in Harvey recovery mode, the service was great, the room was clean, comfortable, and acceptable. Breakfast was offered and was the usual for a reasonable hotel. Price was acceptable as well.

My wife and I went down for two days to fish and relax. We did both. Its proximity to a prime fishing spot like the packery channel and bait shops is the best in the area. The view was great! The best part about this little hotel was the staff. May was the head housekeeper and she was super Nice. As i passed buy she told me good morning and good luck fishing. As I went to my truck i passed two more ladies and they said the same thing. The lady at the front desk was also just awesome. I will definitely put this hotel at the top of my list when I go back. Thanks yall!

"Worst stay on the island. Horrible staff and they will overcharge you once you leave. Thay say military friendly buy hav"

Worst experience I've ever had on the island. They say military friendly but will overcharge you for your service animal once you leave . I asked for proof of what they were charging and it could not provide. Do not leave your credit card information with these people.

"Close to beach!"

26/08/2018

This hotel is just a 5 minute drive to the beach, if that. The doors face the southwest so plan to have the air conditioner on starting around 3. It is right off the highway after coming over the bridge on to the island. Make sure and get an upstairs room! It has a ceiling fan, a great view and never hear anyone above you. Nice and cold air conditioners, head index was 110 outside but wind chill was 36 in our room. Haha. I know what you're gonna say, but the pizza joint across the road is super good. The hotel has a nice selection of a continental breakfast. There are eggs, Canadian bacon, biscuits and gravy, waffles and syrup, cereals, coffee, donuts, bagels, toast, cream cheese, peanut butter, yogurt and I believe some fruit. The owner of the hotel is very attentive to detail and is a family man, so he truly cares about your stay. Also Anette at the front desk is very nice, so please tell her thank you for her hard work! Stay here and you won't be sorry.

"Good Value Motel in a Beautiful Location"

Best Western Padre Island is only 5 minutes from the Beach. Several good local restaurants are nearby, as well as Schlitterbahn. Corpus Christi is just down the road on the other side of the Intracostal Bridge.Be sure to bring your chairs and your fishing poles.

"Better than I thought "

22/07/2018

State a couple nights at the Best Western to get away from the Heat. Surprisingly quiet despite it being completely sold out. As we checked in others were coming up thinking that the room was available but literally they were completely sold out. Adjustments have been made and they are still recovering from the hurricane two years ago. Pool is clean and the breakfast is decent with typical muffins breads Etc. If you get the second floor you can get a decent view of the Bay. Putt putt golf and HEB supermarket is about 2 miles away. There's a CVS Pharmacy down the street. Parking is adequate as a lot of Big Texas style trucks park here. The queen side bed was very comfortable but not enough soaps and toilet paper so you might have to call housekeeping. Overall better than I expected always trust my reviews.

"Good motel near the beach"

Our room was very clean, however had a bad night sleep because the mattress extremely firm. Nice little pool area with palapas. WiFi for our room was non existent- I think they could use a booster. Breakfast was decent. Staff was very friendly.

"A must for the Best Western lovers"

31/05/2018

Had a fantastic time here, the staff was awesome and the property was clean and neat. The downfall was the breakfast area when it is busy, very congested and poorly laid out. The upside is the staff, they were the nicest and most friendliest that we have seen on this trip, Thank you!!!

"Long weekend trip"

Best western was great. Rooms were clean. Shampoo/conditioner a little small for 2 people but not that big of a deal. Decent breakfast. Pool was clean and always empty. The room price was very affordable.

"Worst owner ever!! "

17/05/2018

Ok let's start from the beginning when I actually thought this hotel was going to be great...... started off with a couple calls to the hotel front desk where I spoke with a very nice young lady who lives on island. We talked about early check in and late check out times and I told her I would call back regarding booking..I couple hours later I called back to book and she asked me about being members or triple a members and she said she got us a great rate of $108 a night, I said wow that's good, what about taxes? She says that's included! She then said yes it's a good rate considering it's peak season and rates are normally 170 a night. I agreed what a great rate, she went over personal info and got my credit card info and confirmed the nights and we were done. I waited for a confirmation email but did not receive one, so I called back 2 more times to request one and never got one that night. I called the 800 number and they stated the reservation was there but couldn't send the email only the hotel could... but that my rate was different... I said must have been a mistake and I'd call the hotel in the morning since it was 10pm at this time. Next morning I call the hotel to get the email sent and to get the rate fixed, the girl who answers gets the email sent which I get and I ask her about the rate she sag no matter what was said the rate is the 170 rate..... I ask her to speak with a manager she states she is the front desk manager.... I ask her if the calls are recorded and she states yes, so o ask her to listen to the call and have herself or her boss contact me.... 1 hour later a man named KD or KB calls me saying he is the general manager and starts rambling off how the hotel never in its 20 yrs offered a rate of $108 a night and wouldn't be able to stay in business if it did..I allow him to continue his ramble and state that's not the point... and then I ask him if he listened to the call, he says their calls aren't recorded... I asked then why did your manager state that they were?!?! He then gets defensive (mind you I haven't even gotten upset or raised my voice once) and he says I'm not going to get into it with what was said... I'm trying to fix this... oh great, how can we fix this I say...... he says well at this point it doesn't sound like you'll be happy here and we should look at butting you at another hotel?!? Now I'm like wth?!?!? He says he doesn't think I'll enjoying staying there?!? How would he know... plus he never offered an apology or any way to “fix” the issue... he says maybe you should just call corporate .... at this point I'm at a lose of words and say yah I think that's best and Hang up... well turns out this is the OWNER of this best western and guess what else he CANCELED my reservation without my knowledge and didn't even send an email or anything telling me that when I arrive in a few hours I won't have a hotel to stay at!!!!!!!!! I contact best western who tell me this little bit of information which had they not this could have really been a big issues... Do not stay at this hotel! Stay in a condo or anywhere else... someone that owns a location like this and treats his customers the way he did should not be running a business! Never once did I expect the 108 rate once it was confirmed that it was incorrect... what I wanted was the rate that I got online that was cheaper than what I booked at.... but not once did he listen or even offer to help.... sooo $10 a night just cost you a customer, bad reviews, and referrals

BW_on_the_Island, General Manager at Best Western Padre Island, responded to this review
Dear Annie E, Thank you for taking time to share your thoughts of the service you felt you received. I first would like to apologize for all the issues encountered as I feel there were so many misunderstandings. We take fault for the $108 rate that was quoted, it was our teams responsibility during the phone call to state which days had that price as the daily rate, and confirm rates for each day. We apologize that the emails were not received promptly, as it's very possible it was our computer issue. The front desk manager is aware we do not record phone calls, if she stated we did I truly am sorry, that is not standard for us as it's against the law to record phone conversations without consent. I take full responsibility for the cancellation of your reservation. On our phone conversation it was stated you were no longer coming to Corpus Christi. I apologize for the misunderstand and making assumptions based on that statement that you would want me to cancel the reservation. We do not want our guest to feel as though they are unwelcome or receive horrible customer service, even potential guest who choose not to stay with us. I assure you re-training and reiterating policies to our staff are underway. We take this circumstance to really learn the things as a team and individually how we can make the customer service better for our guests; as in the future we will do mandatory re-caps of reservations with daily rates and totals. On behalf of the team and myself we sincerely apologize for all the misunderstandings that took place. We wish you safe travels in the future!

"Decent Stay"

01/05/2018

This hotel is on Padre Island. We love to stay here because it is so close to the National Seashore. The bottom rooms seem to be recently updated from when we stayed a few years before. The room we had was nice and clean. The only complaint would be there is missing light bulbs in the lamps. Only two had bulbs. I thought that they just kept them out to keep the electricity low, but when we checked out, the manager said that someone must have "stolen" the light bulbs. We did not eat the breakfast, but the coffee was good.

"Really bad customer service"

1
01/05/2018

During booking, the front desk of the hotel was uncapable of making a reservation. so I had to make my reservation through the call center. Upon arrival, I understood why I had so much trouble booking (very limited staff and no on-site management). On the second day, no one cleaned our room (while we were out all day). I got to take out my own trash and take my dirty towels to the laundry room. After that I had to find someone to let me in the the utility closet so I could get some clean towels, kleenex and toliet paper. I do these chores at home but now I got to pay someone so that I could do them while I was on vacation. I reported this to corporate and I got the standard CYA email back from the general manager of that hotel. Never apologized or stated any corrective measures will be taken, so that other people will not experience the same vacation. He only said we dropped the ball. I would not recommend staying at this Best Western location.

BW_on_the_Island, General Manager at Best Western Padre Island, responded to this review
Dear lehmancharlene We thoroughly checked our records of a recent visit and were unable to find a reservation for you at our hotel. I also personally never received an email from corporate of any specific encounter as this one. On behalf of a Best Western hotel I sincerely apologize this was your experience while staying at a Best Western. This is truly unacceptable and not a standard of any kind that I would accept or allow at my hotel. We have hardworking team members that are willing to help and assist any guests during their stay, and management is available 24/7 should we be needed. We hope in the future that you or anyone do not experience this regardless of where you stay. If you have any questions or that I can be of any assistance please do not hesitate to call Best Western Padre Island 361-949-2300. Thank you,              Ketan Bhakta General Manager Best Western Padre Island

26/04/2018

The staff was new and was not very knowledgeable about the rewards program. However they were training on the programs and trying to get better. They were also polite during the process. For me, politeness goes along way. The facility was clean. The breakfast was the same BW breakfast. No excitement there. Overall nice, clean hotel.

"Better than Expected"

05/04/2018

The hotel was cleaner than expected and the rooms were nice on the inside. Nice location, close to the beach and many good places to eat. The landscaping around the building and the pool area is a little bland and boring but overall was a nice place to stay for the rate and location.

"Great Stay"

This hotel was located shortly after reaching Padre Island. We enjoyed ocean views from our nicely decorated vaulted & spacious room. Nice hotel, great breakfast and good service. The pool was very well maintained with large towels available at the front desk. I would return.

I'm sure this would have been a better experience if construction wasn't underway.When we 1st arrived,the toilet seat wasn't attached to the bowl,did get moved to another room,but other people's hair ties were in the restroom,so not sure how if staff is cleaning the rooms properly.

BW_on_the_Island, General Manager at Best Western Padre Island, responded to this review
Thank you yellagyrl20 for taking time to review and share your recent stay with us. We do apologize for all issues encountered during your stay. We do awknowledge the construction put a damper on your stay, as we also hoped it would be finished. Unfortunately due to hurricane Harvey and all the people and business affected construction is taking longer. To all guests we assure you we are trying to push construction along without compromising the integrity of the repairs. We appreciate bringing attention to us the issues encountered in the restroom, we will definitely be following up with housekeeping on this matter. We value all of your feedback, and we hope if you're ever in the area again that we would have the opportunity to make a better impression. Thank you again and safe travels.

"Needs remodeling"

20/03/2018

Great place for the price, but needs work. First off they didn't have extra blankets and I had to go buy one. Second the bathroom showers and toilets whined when used. Kept us up on n off all night. Our shower barley worked and last the pool was dirty and cold. The website did not say seasonal pool.

06/03/2018

While the rooms are going through an update, there are still things they need to work on. The drier did not work but they were kind enough to let us use theirs. The chair in our room needs to be changed and there should be 2. The table had a bad leg. The front desk during the day was helpful but the night guy was not. Overall it was ok. Coffee was pretty bad. Ok breakfast

Best place in town! Highly recommended to everyone especially those who are travelling with pets! Room 101. Stayed Dec. 24- Dec.28!!! They have complimentary breakfast. The floor are tiles , good for pets! Lobby was welcoming, staffs are awesome especially that lady that worked on the 24rth.

"Nice Stay in December"

30/12/2017

Picked this hotel for a one night quick visit due to location being near the beaches and not far from town. The other hotels in this area still had a lot of renovations in process based on reviews. Stayed in one of the upper floors away from the main road as I had read could me lots of road noise. Room was very clean and comfortable. Service was good and Breakfast room very clean and a nice selection of food. We had right when the opened at 6 as we wanted to go down and see the sunrise on the beach.

"Not a Place to stay when you book a fishing trip that leaves in early AM"

3
17/12/2017

Generally good. Heater did not work for such a cold night. Did not get good sleep before getting on board with a fishing guide at 6:300 AM. It was tiring to fish all day and then take a long dive back home. It may have been better for me to drive there to arrive at 6:30 AM than to try to get a good night sleep in a cold room.

BW_on_the_Island, General Manager at Best Western Padre Island, responded to this review
jimfS2200CF on behalf of the entire team here at Best Western Padre Island we are sincerely sorry that your stay was not up to standards. We would like to apologize for this also interfering with your festivities while visiting North Padre Island. We appreciate all of your feedback, and take this as a learning lesson for how we can continue to improve. We are certainly looking into all the heaters to assure they work properly while this winter weather is upon us. We hope in the future you would give us another chance to make the impression of the high standards we want to uphold for our guests. Safe travels.

We had a wonderful 3 nights. It was a great location. Corpus was just across the causeway and Port Aransas could be reached without taking the ferry. Great restaurants close by. The staff was great professional and helpful, Very good breakfast.

09/10/2017

Staff is very friendly and rooms are clean and comfortable. Great location. Half way between Corpus Christi and Port Aransas so we didn't spend a lot of time driving. With Port A still in the process of clean up from Harvey it was nice to be able to go down and spend time on the beach and spend some tourist $'s to help them get back on their feet. I would stay here again.

"Broken and Expensive"

03/10/2017

1. Tv remote had no batteries. Was told by front desk employee at 10pm that I need to come to the front office to replace it. After I showered and got in bed. 2. Coffee pot filter holder was missing. 3. When I checked in, the new employee had me wait 10-15 minutes for the manager to respond to text to tell them if they take checks or not. They do not. There is no sign either. Just fyi

"Pleasant Stay"

26/08/2017

If and when I come to Corpus Christi I will for sure book a room at Best Western Padre Island Facility and staff were great , the breakfast was good as any restaurant in town Check in and out was very easy and quick thanks to the staff Thanks and regards and hope to see you soon

"Convenient location "

20/08/2017

We try to go to the North Padre Island or Port Aransas beach every summer. This was the first time we stayed at this hotel. Nice and clean, great location close to beaches, and good price compared to some other hotel options on North Padre Island. Thanks for a nice stay.

02/08/2017

This is a very nice hotel. Great staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Minutes from the beach. Great nearby cuisine. Great for families. We will definitely return! The staff gave excellent recommendations for good beaches, shops, and restaurants. They were extremely helpful and even gave our car a jump when the battery died! Nice outdoor pool under the palm trees.

"Great hotel!"

28/07/2017

Everything from the beginning to the end of our stay was great! The hotel staff was great & went above & beyond. I highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed! The hotel even looks just like the pictures on the website, which is not always the case.

"Good Choice"

4
28/07/2017

the staff was great and helpful. The breakfast was not bad. It had different options to choose from. I would rather have a room with carpet instead of tile, but I think hotels are starting to change to tile floors instead. It was a good location, not far from the beach.

"Close to beaches"

4
26/07/2017

This hotel was easy to get to, right next to a park, and close to several public beaches. Although the hotel was not on the beach, it was in a good, quiet location, and the price was similar to that of hotels on the mainland. In general, a good solid hotel with a nice hearty breakfast and decent wifi.

"Absolute gem on the island"

5
24/07/2017

This property is an astounding value for a stay on North Padre. Every employee we encountered during our 5 day stay was unfailingly polite and helpful. Room was clean and spacious - we had an upstairs double with vaulted ceiling which made the room seem even larger. Bedding was changed and beds made daily. Fresh towels and new shampoo/conditioner/soaps/lotions in place daily. Pool towels and any additional blankets or towels were immediately available from the front desk on request. This is a small property of about 40 rooms, all of which face the intercoastal waterway to the west, giving anyone interested in looking a fabulous sunset each evening. Immediately to the north sits Packery Channel, so the property is effectively bound by water on two sides, which gives a lovely breeze when sitting at the pool. The pool itself, while small, was cool, refreshing and sparklingly clean (water and adjacent area) every day. Multiple loungers, table, chairs and two palapas provide shade and seating. Immediately outside the fence 3 picnic tables and a BBQ pit allow for family grilling. Each room comes equipped with a slightly larger than dorm sized fridge and small microwave, as well as coffee maker with all the things necessary to make coffee. There is little need for room coffee, however, as a full breakfast is served from 6AM to 9AM daily. In addition to the rather typical continental fare of pastries, coffee, juice and cold cereal, breakfast includes two waffle makers, a variety of breads for toasting, scrambled eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy and a hot meat (while we were there this was either bacon, sausage links or sausage patties) each day. Our family of four vacations on N.P.I. every summer and this was the easiest, most laid-back and stress-free vacation in recent memory, and I can honestly say it was because of our stay at this Best Western rather that our typical condo. Kudos to the employees. There are TWO POINTS that need to be made, however. As neither of these are the fault of the hotel and cannot be changed by them, I am not lowering my rating. But if you are staying here they should be pointed out. Sadly, the property immediately adjacent to the north is under construction. While were there (7/16-7/21) the workers started up the heavy machinery (backhoe, tractor, etc) prior to 6AM. This didn't necessarily wake us up, as we are early risers and were on the 2nd floor, but may be a problem for those who are. The second issue is that there is no direct cutthrough in the median of the highway to enter the parking lot. This means that in order to get into the parking lot when coming onto the island you have the bypass and u-turn. Similarly, when leaving the parking lot to go down the island and to the beach you have to drive to the light and make a u-turn. This is at most an inconvenience, but worth noting. Finally, we were told that the construction was for a shopping mall, so hopefully this means a single story building. But in future the hotel's lovely view of the water may be blocked. We sincerely hope that this does not become the case.

It was good enjoyed the scenery the front desk person was super nice and extremely helpful. But room need a little more cleanest especially the rest room,but everything else was good. If I was to go back to Corpus I will stay there again.

Staff is courteous and excels in what they do. They go above and beyond to make sure you feel as close to home as possible. Every time I call to make a reservation, the staff is very helpful and polite.

"Billing problems and mosquitos"

2
15/07/2017

In our previous stay, we were mostly happy. Unfortunately, this time we had problems with our room rate when we checked in (higher than the BestWestern.com rate confirmed in email). Then they said they'd fix it "later." When we checked out the rate was not fixed. The front desk people couldn't do anything about it. So we had to wait 30 minutes for the manager to come to the hotel and fix the rate. We obviously didn't want to see if it would get fixed after we got home, since they had already not fixed it once. The room was full of mosquitos, so that the first night we had to kill at least 20. The room also smelled like smoke. On the upside, it wasn't very loud, just regular noises, such as hearing a baby cry on the other side of a connecting door.

eilers78751 thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate all of your feedback and honesty. First and foremost we would like to apologize for the issues of the room rate and checkout encounter. We take full responsibility for the miscommunication on our end that resulted in a delay in your departure. We highly appreciated your patience during this situation, as we have had some staff changes and staff training taking place. We are very sorry for the mosquitos; unfortunately this issue has been city wide due to the recent weather conditions, rain, heat, and humidity causing the increased mosquito presence. We are trying to contain that situation following the city recommendations and additional pest control. Thank you for the loyalty you have shown us, we wish you and your family safe travels in the future.

Clean, well maintained, complimentary breakfast is a plus. Great location to access all the activities on "The Island" and to get back to the mainland for supplies etc... very helpful and reasonable too. Parking lot specifically for boat trailers is a plus.

"Only one more room left...", then turns around and hands out more keys to following people. Room was FULL of mosquitoes. A/C hummed and buzzed ALL night. Rooms stink! Floors FILTHY! Room not clean. Noisy. Uncomfortable beds with tiny pillows. DO-NOT-STAY-HERE!!!

BW_on_the_Island, General Manager at Best Western Padre Island, responded to this review
Justin W thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience's you experienced during your stay. It is unacceptable for the rooms to be dirty and the floors filthy, we have high standards we set for ourselves and the experiences we want our guest to have. We highly encourage bringing these situations to our attention so that we can rectify the situations immediately, as we agree these issues should never be anything our guest have to encounter. The mosquitos have been an issue for us and all of Corpus Christi at this time, unfortunately with the recent weather conditions, rain, heat, and humidity; this has increased the mosquito presence. We do apologize but please rest assure we are doing as much as we can to decrease this issue by treating as the city recommends and having pest control treat the property. We are sorry that your stay was not a pleasant one and we take this experience as a learning opportunity for us to do better, educating our staff to ensure better experiences for our guest. We wish you and your family safe travels in the future.

Loud noises due to the hotel maintenance in the day time. Brocken arm chair was replaced immediately upon request. The room was changed upon request due to the noises from the maintenance crews, loud AC unit, and nonfunctional door lock. The staffs were helpful and listen to the guest complaint (important). Mosquitoes are very aggressive in the hotel premises.

Everything was excellent. Will be back soon. The beach is literally down the road and anything else you could possibly need. The turtle rescue is next door to the hotel and is is something you don't want to miss.

"Would stay here again"

28/06/2017

Traveled with small children. Pool and hotel clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great. I normally hate hotel breakfast. It was the best I have had. I would stay here again. Only downside was a lot of people standing outside smoking. It beats having a smoker in room next to you. Four guys checked in as we checked out. You could smell smoke through the wall as we were packing and getting ready to leave.

"Nice Place to Stay on the Island"

27/06/2017

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay here. This is an older Best Western, but it has been updated. The biggest positive for it being older is the thicker walls! We stayed for two nights, and we had zero noise from the rooms on either side. I can't say about noise above because we were on the second floor. We also didn't hear any noise from the highway even though we were very close. This hotel is on the edge of town as you're leaving the island, so it's quiet for that reason as well. The bed was okay; not the best but definitely not the worst I've ever slept on. I'm cold natured, so I wish there had been a comforter on the bed, or an extra blanket. There is a small refrigerator, a microwave, and a coffee maker. This is a motel style hotel with all the rooms opening to the outside. All of the rooms have a view of the bay and the JFK Causeway. We would definitely stay here again.

"Enjoyable and a nice view"

19/06/2017

We stayed here spur of the moment on a family trip. Very nice view from the second floor, new rooms are large and cleaned up a little old-fashioned. Breakfast buffet was very nice. Overall we would stay here again, a great value at $99 for a beach vacation. Very close to multiple beaches on Padre Island.

"Friendly, Clean, Really Great Location, Hidden Gem"

5
15/06/2017

We really loved staying here. The hotel was very clean and well kept. We really liked the location; it's just a few minutes drive to Whitecap Beach. We also liked that it's close to both Corpus attractions and Port Aransas. I felt like hotel was in a quieter part of the city, away from a lot the congestion and crowds. It's quiet and the beds were comfortable. From management to front desk and housekeeping, the staff was very accommodating. We also used the pool a few times; it's just the right size for the location and was very clean. The office provided fresh towels for the pool. We saw that many of the guests were there for fishing trips; the hotel had a special area for the boats that was convenient for the guests but not intrusive. The rooms on the top floor have vaulted ceilings which I thought made the room feel bigger. The TV was a good size for the space and modern. The breakfast was hot and fresh. The coffee was good. The fresh, hot coffee early in the morning is important to me. I appreciated that the hot breakfast provided plenty of protein. Our trip started off really well before we even got there thanks to the wonderful front desk. Our trip also ended well thanks to the housekeeping staff and awesome manager. It was just a really good stay. I feel like I found a hidden gem in both the hotel and this part of the city. Another thing worth mentioning is that although it's not beachfront, it does have a water view and is very close to the water.

Check in about 9:30pm the staff member was awesome right out gate for being kinda late she was still happy as can be.

It's the only place I stay when we come to corpus to fish. Thank you BW

close to the beach, clean rooms, clean pool, free breakfast, plenty of parking, laundry on site, parking area for boats, view of Laguna Madre from second floor. onsite staff 24 hrs. FYI watch your children in the parking lot as cars pull in off of the main road very fast sometimes.

We stayed 2 days to do some sightseeing around Corpus Christi and the islands and were not disappointed! We requested a ground room floor and got it, very nice and clean! The hotel staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed! I'd like to know what brand mattresses they have because we slept so good in that bed! Breakfast was good too. Will definitely come back! Sylvia and Dennis

Room was clean and the hotel was also clean. Good reception but no place to rest outside except a picknic table beside the pool. We could easily heard our neighbors. The hotel is near Padre Island park and it was a good location for our vacations.

"Clean with comfortable beds and accommodating service"

24/04/2017

Excellent staff, assisted with check in and saved a downstairs room for access to parking and bringing my fishing tackle and ice chest so I didn't have to leave the valuable rods and reels in my truck. The parking lot and hotel was quiet. The beds are very comfortable, which is very important, as both of my rotator cuffs were torn and required surgery and metal pins, and 4 cervical vertebrae are fused. There should be more staffs like the staff at the Best Western.

"Nice place"

29/03/2017

We stayed one night in a first floor room. We arrived on the island a day earlier than expected and this hotel had a room available when we needed it. The front desk staff was very helpful over the phone when booking last minute and pleasant at check-in. Our room was clean. Tile floors (which are to be expected in beach properties) made the room seem a little cold. The room was just average in size and accommodations. Hotel location was right on the main road on Padre and close to the bridge headed into Corpus. The pool looked nice with tiki hut type shelters, but we didn't get a chance to try it. We did notice that there were chargers in the parking lot for electric cars. Breakfast the next morning was good. Standard for Best Westerns including pancakes, eggs, sausage along with pastries and cereals. Overall, this hotel met our needs. It felt safe, clean, and had a really good location.

02/10/2016

We knew when we made reservations this was an older hotel. But it is quiet, clean, staff nice. Rooms have recently been remodeled, nice and clean, beds were comfortable. Staff goes above and beyond there duties. They were very pet friendly, just be sure you follow up with the hotel before arriving so they know you are in need of a pet friendly room. My one and only suggestion is that the hotel needs to have a rule about cleaning fish on hotel grounds. We came late to several men cleaning their fish and throwing it on the back of the property right outside our door, where we had walked our dogs earlier. When traveling with pets the last thing anyone needs to happen is for your animals to get sick from eating fish remains. That my only complaint. Would we stay again....oh yes! Jerry M

Our experience with this motel was terrific. All employees I interacted with were very friendly, helpful and professional. The room was very clean and beds quite comfortable. Maintenance has been good and everything in the room worked well. (Internet often slow but that's typical) this motel fit our needs perfectly well. It's not fancy but clean, comfortable and quiet. When we return to the area we would stay there again.

"Not Dog Friendly."

13/09/2016

I called and inquired about dog friendliness and was told it's just a $20 fee and booked my room online. Upon check in I was told they are out of dog friendly rooms and denied my check in. I had to find a new hotel last minute with a pregnant wife and my dog. It was very unpleasant and the staff was rude about it. Please avoid if you are traveling with a dog.

BW_on_the_Island, Manager at BEST WESTERN Padre Island, responded to this review
stangboris thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. First, we would like to apologize for the misunderstanding regarding the pet friendly rooms. Upon further investigation we were unaware that you did have a pet, as the online booking did not state a pet would also be arriving. Being conscious that some guests have pet allergies, we allow pets in certain rooms (first floor) because of certain accommodations we have made to the room, such as tile. We are delighted to be an animal friendly hotel and take great pride in being able to provide that service. We do acknowledge the flaws that can be created because of the online booking not being able to show if pet friendly rooms are available. It is never our intention to be rude to our guest or potential guests, and as a team we sincerely apologize, and appropriate coaching to staff has taken place. Our priority with every guest is to have incomparable customer service, making your stay away from home feel like home. As a team we strive to achieve a higher level of service, and we hope that in the future you may give us another chance to make a different impression. We wish you and your family well in your future travels.

Called the location and was told they are dog friendly for $20 fee. Booked online and arrived to be told that I was supposed to tell them in advance that I have a dog and denied my stay. I went down the street to La Quinta. No Dog fees, clean rooms and saved $80 for the same night in total cost. Avoid this place if you have a Dog.

14/08/2016

Me and the wife came down to enjoy the beach and we thought that this hotel would be a good stop. Online it said that the rooms where going for 113, but when we got there the women told us it was 250. I attempted to show here what the website said be she just said "250 a night no exceptions". Ok fine, more than what we wanted to pay but we where tired after 12 hours of driving and we wanted to rest. after resting and going down to the beach we came back to shower off only to find that the shower did not work. we called the front desk but they told us there was nothing they could do but call maintenance. after an hour or so we finally got water but it was barley warm and almost no pressure. If that was not bad enough we where awoken a 9am by the maid banging on the door even though we had the "do not disturb" sign up. She had the nerve to demand to clean our rooms, when we told her no and that we had 2 nights here, she continued to demand to clean the room. finally slammed the door in her face and call the desk who said that would handle it. Upon check out I demanded to speck with the manger, an older lady came out and said she was the manger and when I complained she said there was nothing that she would do. I didnt even get a "sorry for the inconvenience". When I threatened to contact there corp. she actually laughed at me. Well jokes on here because I am currently talking with BW about this issue and there looking into it. I highly recommend staying away form this place, I don't like posting reviews like this but this place was so bad that I felt I had to...

"Great hotel for the price"

07/08/2016

The price and close proximity to the beach were what led us to this hotel, and we had a very good experience. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the staff was friendly and very accommodating. This hotel is not fancy, but we weren't expecting it to be. The breakfast was good, the area felt safe, and there was lots of parking available. There were lots of dogs staying at this hotel, which only bothered me when one inconsiderate guest let her dog bark all morning. I can't blame the hotel for that though. Overall, we had a great stay.

Very close to Padre beaches. Pool is clean and a nice way to cool down after a long day at the beach. We'll be back!

After a hot day, the partying in the parking lot till after midnight, a lady yelling at her kids in a foreign language, the pipes in the wall rattling all night and a defective air conditioning system, was not pleasant.

What a wonderful surprise to see the room was remodeled and CLEAN! I really appreciated the CLEANILINESS of the room as well as the renovations in the room. It certainly appears to be easier to clean. The four pillows were a nice benefit too. Overall, it was refreshing as a customer to see the upgrades.

Extra-large room on second floor with ceiling fans. Took a room far away from main office. Breakfast good. Friendly and helpful staff. Handouts in lobby, dining area helped in deciding what to do each day. Because I read one of the newspapers, we attended a free program on growing tomato plants at the South Texas Botanical Gardens & Nature Center. Recommend: Catfish Charlie's for seafood, JB's German Bakery and Cafe, Padre Island National Seashore. Would stay here again if we were in the area.

06/07/2016

Unfamiliar with the area, we drove up to an unattractive exterior. I forgot to request a 1st floor room, and the cot I did request wasn't available at first. My first impression was, "This is going to be a disaster!" But the woman at check in rearranged things so we got on the first floor. She went hunting for a cot and brought it to my room. The room was spacious, with a nice little table and chairs, microwave and fridge. The room was clean and tiled not carpeted, which is a plus in my book. The beds, including the cot, were very comfortable. There's a nice laundry facility, and the pool area looked very inviting although we did not use it. The breakfast area, fare and presentation was the best continental breakfast I've ever seen. I thought the room was a little pricey, but what really sets this hotel apart is the staff! Every member that I came in contact with was friendly, helpful, caring and a very hard worker. The breakfast area was packed, but the food never ran out and the tables were promptly cleaned. I would stay there again.

This BW is located at the head of Padre Island, just over the causeway from Corpus, around the corner from Port Aransas and 10 Miles to the National Beach. The staff is helpful. The breakfast was good. The pool was great. This is our second stay here and hopefully we will be able to stay at this BW again. The handicapped facilities were quite good - especially the bathroom and the walk in shower - absolutely pristine everyday (thanks housekeeping) and easy to use.

This place exceeded our expectations. We got a last minute deal for a quick weekend getaway on a hotel website. Pet friendly, which is essential for us, we have a lap dog. Not on the beach, but a quick drive. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and welcoming. Breakfast was great, usual waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, muffins, toast, cereal, juice, choices of pastries/bagels, oatmeal. We would stay here again. Excellent value.

"Smokers and pet owners rejoice"

15/06/2016

If you're a smoker or a pet owner, you'll be happy to find this nice motel. The island doesn't have many options for you. Our second-floor room was very recently remodeled, and thus attractive. It had vaulted ceilings, small table and chairs for snacking, a ceiling fan, and a fridge/microwave. The sink is outside of the bathroom, so that can be pro or con depending on your preference. The shower had good water pressure. Just like another reviewer, we thought the mattress was too firm. The view off the motel landing was very nice: across the dunes and towards the intracoastal waterway. The pool also sits next to the dunes, so that's attractive too. The breakfast was your standard free hotel breakfast, like you'd get at comparative hotels. Dogs are not policed, so someone tied theirs off to the motel landing and it barked incessantly.

Most comfortable bed ever! Great AC! The pool while not huge was also really clean. No mildew, no unnatural debris and had excellent sturdy sun loungers. Our room had iron and board, coffee maker, micro wave and a clean fridge. Plenty of towels, a wet bag and nice soaps, lotion etc. The lobby and reception were orderly and well kept. On the front door is an award for hotel excellence. The staff were friendly and professional. Morning breakfast had scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, a waffle station, pastries, cold cereal, fruits and yogurts. The attendant to the dinning area was detail oriented and efficient! There was plenty of coffee and condiments even at 9am. My favorite souvenir shop is across the street. Doc's Seafood is just down about a quarter mile and can't be beat for flavor and atmosphere. We loved our stay and will definitely book here again.

"Friendly Staff, But The Rooms Need A Makeover"

The biggest issue we had with the room was the air conditioner didn't work all that well. It got pretty muggy in the room. There aren't a lot of places where dogs are welcome, which is why we chose this one. The staff was friendly, and the breakfast layout was OK. Making your own waffles is something I enjoy, so... The second biggest issue was the party that was going on right outside our room until about 1:00 a.m. If you are the party type, this probably won't affect you. I was trying to get some sleep, and that didn't happen. If you go to Corpus Christi, Whitecap Beach is clean, but crowded. Get there early! If you go to the National Park beaches, expect to set up on a beach with miles of litter, flotsam, and the occasional Man-O-War. The good news on the National Park beaches is that you will have plenty of room between you and the next group...

Dirty, old, very outdated. Nasty carpets. Wouldnt stay at this hotel again even for the cheaper price. The breakfast was ok. Normal cereal/fruit/coffee/muffins. It would look and feel much better with fresh paint, fixtures and updated carpeting and lamps!

"Not the best Best Western we've stayed at"

11/04/2016

We have been Best Western Rewards members for quite some time and always try to choose them whenever possible while traveling, which we do a lot of. This Best Western in particular had a great staff which we always seem to be satisfied with, however, the beds claimed to be queen yet were full size and the bedding was too small for the beds, so my husband and I were fighting for covers the whole night. The a/c / heater unit was inconsistent and had a hard time keeping the room at a constant temperature. The walls were very thin, and we could hear our 'neighbors' TV all night. The breakfast looked and smelled amazing, yet made both of us ill. The eggs and sausage both seemed to be low quality imitation (fake not real). This experience will not keep us from going to Best Westerns, as this is one of many times we have been to their hotels. And generally always have an amazing experience. But unfortunately, we will not choose this specific one again when traveling through the Corpus Christi area.

Roaches. Loud appliances. Grey bed sheets. Smelly towels. Friendly staff but.... roaches. Misleading advertising - what looks like a regular hotel (and I have been to some nice Best Western properties) is indeed an old motel.

"Fabulous Holiday!"

We haven't been on holiday in over 26 years (life got in the way)! We thoroughly enjoyed the property, service, and location at Best Western Padre Island! We selected BWPI for their "pet friendly" policy... $20.00 per day wasn't necessary for our girl, but we understand. This was the first "road trip" for our 7 year old Doberman! Needless to say, the experience of staying in a motel room was new to her. She did very well. She never heard anyone in adjoining or upper rooms to cause her to bark, calling our attention to others (or bothering anyone else)! Thank goodness their pet friendly policy is ground level rooms! The only thing that caused a bit of discomfort - mean stickers in the grassy areas that we had to walk through for our Dobie bathroom breaks! But, that's Texas! The breakfast was EXCELLENT! We were amazed with the choices and freshness! Oh, and I'm thankful they have coffee available 24/7 in the lobby area! The room's coffee pot (ONE CUP at a time) wasn't near enough for this avid coffee drinker! Hopefully, it will not be another 26 years before another holiday break away from real life. When we go back to the beach, we will again stay at BWPI!!!

Our go-to in Corpus. The staff are always so kind and the rooms spotless. It's a great location to move between Corpus, Port Aransas and Malaquite National Seashore. They have a pool, free breakfast (not just a roll and oj, real food) and pets are allowed. Very reasonable price.

This was our first time at the North Padre Island Best Western. The rooms are very clean, staff was very professional and nice.We can see why others come back over and over again. We will too! PS Some new pillows would be nice. Beds are very comfortable.

"Not a good experience"

30/03/2016

Called twice to ensure connecting rooms since we were traveling with kids; at noon we were guaranteed rooms 207/208 would be ready when we got there. We arrived at 430 and neither room was cleaned. My daughter went back to the office to tell Mary that 209/210 wouldn't work as they were separated by a staircase she was told that was what they had. I didn't settle for that answer and Mary all but told me to take it or leave. Understand, this was not peak season we purposely chose after spring break was over to go down on off-season. Thankfully one of the housekeepers said she would get the rooms made up. The hotel is ok, we got an $88 rate off Hotels.com and that is all this property is worth. I am not sure how they have a 5-diamond AAA rating or a 5-star Trip Advisor rating, the property does not warrant it. The room was nice enough, the beds are hard. It had a microwave and fridge. Had an issue with our sink, was fixed promptly. The connecting rooms were perfect with the kids and glad I pushed the issue. Housekeeping is non-existent so if you have that expectation this is not the place! They serve a hot breakfast and the waffles were great.

Family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights in March. The room was clean and comfortable, all rooms open up to outside with a nice view of the bay. The hotel is on a highway but not right next to anything so it is quiet. We did not use the pool instead choosing to go to the beach, they let you take hotel pool towels to use on the beach which is very nice. Breakfast was good with hot items, which is always pleasant surprise. I did do a load of clothes in the onsite laundry and the facility was adequate. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend to other families searching for comfortable accommodations.

"Missing the Basics"

24/03/2016

Our two rooms were not together as requested and one-half the family was on the top, second floor and the other half on the ground floor. The rooms were very basic and the staff was not able to clean the rooms and change bed linens and towels as scheduled. Our room went two days without any cleaning and we had to ask for clean towels. Overall, for a Best Western Rewards member and fan, not a good experience.

I will not stay anywhere else when on the coast. This team takes excellent care of us every-time we step through the door till we check out. I always feel like a valued guest and will always be thankful for the welcome feeling after the 2 hour drive there. This is the place to stay if you are going to visit the coast!!!!!

This was for a 7 night stay. This review done on second day of stay. Access to hotel was excellent. Easy to find via GPS. Lobby/atrium/breakfast area, (all in one), was quite striking. Eating breakfast the first morning was a good experience. The room make-up person arrived just after we returned from breakfast. She asked about room make-up and we responded that we needed a few minutes, but would then leave for her to do the room. As I complete this review we are waiting for her return three-and-a-half hours later. The room is very large, with sofa, chairs, king bed, table, desk, large bath area, and a very basic kitchen area. ( It is described as an all-suite venue.) Lobby staff were friendly and efficient. Laundry facilities were located on the top floor, (3rd). The location of the television was a puzzle to me as watching from the sofa/living area was not possible, and viewing from the bed was also at a rather extreme angle. The furniture, from my perspective could have been arranged more effectively.

On reading some of the reviews I wonder if we have stayed at the same place. From check in to checkout we have been very pleased. On check in when I told the desk clerk I had a small registered service dog and offered to show her his registration she very nicely Said it was not necessary. The room was clean the bed comfortable I could control the temperature. We had nice hot showers. The breakfast was tasty with choices as to what we had. The staff was all real friendly even the ones that couldn't understand me. Nice to see staff with smiles on their faces. If we ever come back we will be sure to stay here.

I just returned from Padre Island, TX. We stayed in this Hotel. We really enjoyed our visit,very good costumer service, the hotel is very well located, it is close to the main attractions. Friendly staff. We were leaving a little before 6:00 am and the front desk person was super nice to open the breakfast room for us to have breakfast before leaving.

"Very disappointing"

06/02/2016

First let me say I stopped here because they describe themselves as pet friendly. If you think being interrogated about your pet your behavior, your pets behavior. And then threatened eight $200 fine if you don't disclose that you have a pet. And charging you $20 for the night, just because you want to bring your pet in your room. As pet friendly. Then come on. Because that's how it's going to go down. We all know that our pets are members of our family and yes they leave behind the little dog hair. And that's probably all. If you have an extra child another person in your party and they take a shower, used towels, Make a cuppa coffee, sleep on the second bed we all know that an extra person in the room cost to hotel more than me bringing my pad in the room. So if you don't mind paying an extra $20 and this is your hotel. I think a five or $10 charge would be sufficient. $15 would be a lot but $20 is well too much. Besides that but he did not work in this room the fan worked on the heater but there was no heat so I slept in my clothes it got down to 34° that night and I was very cold. When I went to take a hot shower I found that the showerhead a governor on it which only allowed it to release warm water, so no hot showers. Those of us that are stated best Western before know that the breakfast is really not worth eating if you're a big breakfast eater you always go somewhere else and buy breakfast. My room was clean. The hotel appears to be new. But I did not enjoy my stay and I received a Robo response to my complaints. They left a phone number that I could call if I wanted to rant. They really didn't apologize for me being cold and having a Poor shower I'll stay at Hampton Inn next time

BW_on_the_Island, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Padre Island, responded to this review
Dear Kcpetcare Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment about our hotel. We are genuinely sorry for any inconveniences you encountered during your stay with us. Please accept our sincerest apologies for not meeting your expectations. The pet friendly rooms at our hotel are essentially dedicated for guests travelling with pets and therefore we charge a small fee per night to offset the additional cleaning costs. Please understand that our fine for undeclared pets is only applicable to guests who do NOT register their pets. Cleanliness is of utmost importance to our business and as such we want to ensure that we honor many of our guest requests to be placed in a room where “pets” have resided. We understand that your pet may have been well behaved and therefore a pet fee of $20 may seem high, however this is a nominal fixed fee that we have been charging for many years. Regarding the heater in your room, as you may recall, our Front Desk Agent communicated that she was more than happy to do what she could to relocate you to another room with two beds, which you declined. Our team always exerts all efforts to provide the best options for our guests. We do also apologize for the showerhead. Our bathrooms have all been recently renovated and we have been getting many compliments about the décor. Our maintenance staff will be looking into the issue that you encountered in your room. We are excited about the new breakfast program which is going to be introduced at all Best Westerns starting April 2016. We are working very hard to have the changes to our breakfast implemented by the end of March. We hope that you will consider giving us another chance in the future. Sincerely, General Manager

As soon as I pulled up to the hotel, I was asked if I was ready to check-in. The lady behind the desk was pleasant and extremely helpful. The rooms were clean and the heater worked very well. ( it was cold that day).There was a lot of variety of foods to have for breakfast. This was no fruit only breakfast. Overall I was pleased with my stay, and would do it again if I am in the area. Beach access is minutes away to include PINS.

We checked in on Christmas Eve & the person behind the front desk of the hotel provided a very friendly experience. Since we were on vacation, we requested that the free breakfast timings be extended by half an hour & the person seemed empowered & more than happy to oblige with the request. He provided valuable information for the dining places that would be open on this Christmas Eve.

The room was clean and spacious, well-equipped and everything worked well. We waited nearly an hour to check-in after our arrival at 3:45 p.m. The quality of the plates and dinner ware for breakfast was CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP. The plates had to be doubled or tripled to hold anything and the dinner-ware bent when I tried to cut something.

We (including my husband and 2 miniature schnauzers) received a warm and inviting welcome from the front desk clerk. The facility is well maintained, clean and quiet. It includes enough green space with picnic tables and a charcoal grill for us to enjoy as well as our 2 four-legged companions to stretch out in. The room is spacious including a sofa, moderately-sized flat screen TV, microwave, mini fridge and tiled flooring for easy clean up. The free breakfast included a variety of items (i.e. waffles, breads, eggs, bacon, yogurts, cereals, juices, coffee, etc.) that were more than filling. The young lady who "manned" the breakfast area was very sweet and welcoming.

This hotel and it's staff tried to accommodate all my needs and concerns. Security of my vehicle is one of the biggest concerns I have. Plenty of cameras, and staff patrols area, Very well lit (except for the fog) open areas to accommodate larger vehicles, boats, trailers etc. Easy access and traffic flow back to Corpus in the morning is pleasant.

The location of this motel is great. It is minutes away from multiple boat ramps and bait shops and easily accessible no matter where you are coming from on the island. The Packery channel runs directly behind the motel so you can quickly get to your favorite duck blind or fishing hole. There is also plenty of room for trailer parking with power outlets for charging batteries near by.

Nice motel for the price. Clean, large rooms, and very friendly staff. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was okay. The beach was nasty! The red tide was in and the smell was unbelievable. Many dead fish added to the smell. Never thought to ask about the beach! But the motel was nice!

for the price, the flooded fridge and wet floor, indicated the room floors may not have been mopped. That is not pleasant. It was off season, so the price should reflect that. It didn't. The breakfast yogurts should have been restocked. Again, not what I paid for.

Booked this hotel from Trip Advisor. Got a really reasonable rate for the Island, so my expectations weren't that high. I was very surprised when I saw the room. It was very spacious and comfortable. The bed is a little firm but comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I stayed here during the week so I'm sure that why the rate was less expensive. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean, super nice staff, free breakfast included and pets are allowed. We have two 60+ shepherd/lab mixes and they travel with us. This hotel allows pets and only charged a total of $20 extra for the dogs to stay the one night we were there. The beach is just a 5 minute drive (Mustang Island Beach- which also allows dogs). Perfect location and very nice hotel.

I spoke with three different people that work for the hotel (checkin, breakfast, and checkout) all were very happy to see me; informative, smiles and polite. At checkin all my questions were answered before I could ask. The rooms were clean and large. Medium fridge and small microwave. The rooms were cool and surprisingly not humid. No sand present as well! Breakfast had eggs, sausage, waffles, toasts, cereal, and fruit. Hot and plentiful. Every room looks over the lit parking lot. it was easy for me to park in front of the room so I could see my car from the window. I saw two small boats parked in a lot off the main parking. Fast food and restaurants close by. An extended walk to get to the closest, or walk over the highway to fast food. (The highway slows down at night - noise was never an issue) Grocery is back on the main land (HEB and Walmart) CVS close by on island next to Stripes gas station. I thought I had lost my keys in the room after check out ... They went out of their way to check the room and to call me back to let me know that they didn't find them. They even looked under the beds. At no time did I feel like I was putting them through a hassle. They were so polite and responsive.
