On beach = excellent location. Staff = very nice.

Posted Nov 1, 2016
Pros: Location was best. 1 Bedroom Apt was very large, no need to pack kitchen, everything needed was there! Mom/Pop feel, not a chain operation. Well managed - entire team was very nice. Bedding was great compared to what I expected.
Cons: I thought a bit pricey. Not sure how they rank in pricing to other locations, but I guess price was in line for Port Aransas. A tiny bit dated, but overall well maintained. Regardless, exceeded my expectations - I'll go back.
Location: Beach, fishing and lots of choices to eat and drink including live bands. All very relaxing. I'm sure there is more for adventurous type.

Relaxing hotel on the beach.

Posted Oct 25, 2015
Easy path to beach. Nice views from 3rd floor. Hotel is older but maintained adequately. They exchange towels daily or as you need them. Staff friendly and helpful. Elevator is quick and plenty room.

Thank you for choosing Beachgate as your ON the Beach destination here in Port A. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. Next time we'll earn that last star. We're very blessed to be about the only Condo complex to also offer hotel-style unit that is right on the beach. Look forward to having you back real soon.

Great location

Posted Sep 28, 2015
Room was clean, plenty of towels in the room. Wish there would have been coffee cups and silverware available. There were paper coffee cups but not very big. The vending machines were empty virh days. Quiet and peaceful.

Thank you for choosing Beachgate as your ON the Beach destination here in Port A. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. Next time we'll earn that last star. I'm sorry about the vending machines. Our previous vending company sadly went out of business and we're looking for another to replace them. Rats. Though we have coffee mugs and silverware in the Condos, we keep it pretty light in the hotel style rooms...but next time, just call and ask and we'll be happy to run up those type of items to you to use while you're here. See you again soon.

weekend with friends and family

Posted Sep 28, 2015
Pros: Everything!
Location: We strolled down the beach, and even got to witness a beautiful beach wedding! A taxi was very convenient and even took us to Bernie's. GREAT!
The lady at front desk was AMAZING and very helpful as to tell us what would be going on at the beach and in Port A. Condo was very nice, and close to beach activities. Will definitely be going back soon!!!!!!

Updated, nice hotel, w/granite, tile floors

Posted Sep 14, 2015
Cons: Beds in living room for guests
Location: Very close to the ocean and close to downtown where there are many restaurants and shops
Office staff excellent - very friendly - very knowledgeable about local events, restaurants, etc.. Room was updated w/ granite in kitchen and bath, tile floors, nice bedroom, living room is where guests stay (we had 6 in our party) and the beds were not comfortable, need updating. Big room w/ balcony - seems all balconies have an ocean view. 2 pools - both very clean and nice.

Thank you for choosing Beachgate as your ON the Beach destination here in Port A. I'm very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I'm sorry about those Futons in the living area. Though they create a great opportunity to save money for our guests....versus upgrades to a 2BR or 3BR Condo, they aren't as roomy or comfortable as the beds. We are working to phase these out in favor of sleeper sofas over the coming year. Thanks for the feedback. We look forward to having you back again.

Hotel within walking distance to beach

Posted Sep 14, 2015
Pros: The location was great. An easy walk to the beach took maybe 3 minutes. The bed was comfortable.
Cons: The room we stayed in has a bug problem. Cleaning and bug proofing would help.
There are several buildings for this business. We stayed in building #2. Upon opening the door to the unit, we were greeted with a roach (they call them water bugs - still disgusting) on the table. Saw one scurry under the refrigerator, there was one on the toilet paper in the bathroom and I killed a smaller roach in a bed side table stand. We decided to bring our own coffee pot. The counter top was filthy under the coffee pot which was provided by the motel. The air conditioning unit is old and does not put out fresh air. We just opened the windows to have clean air to breath.

i love that it is close to the beach

Posted Sep 9, 2015
Pros: That it has everything you need.
Cons: I would like for them to put new pots and pans they were old and the coating on them were scratched off the refrigerator should be wiped on each side.
Location: We did go fishing the pier was about a mile we rented a golf cart that was fun there is a restraunt next door which was good and we went shopping!
It's dog friendly the area was always clean so we all had a great time and the beach is walking distance I would come back again because of this and the staff was great and very patient with their guests meaning they took time to tell us we're exactly to go for restrauants and groceries .

Good location but very dated and a bit run down.

Posted Aug 31, 2015
Pros: Staff was friendly. Close to the beach.
Cons: Scrape and paint. New AC unit. Better TV
Location: Close to the beach
Nice/helpful staff. Building is showing its age. Needs a makeover. Security light was a bother at night. Sink drain was very slow.

Moldy Rusty

Posted Aug 29, 2015
There was a large patch in the ceiling of the shower that was covered in mold. The unit smelled like mold also. The appliances were rusty. They looked like someone had thrown orange paint in them they were so rusty. The a/c units worked well but they dropped the excess condensation all over the patio/balconies. The ceilings of the patio/balconies were sagging due to the condensation not being directed properly.
