South Padre Island very disappointing
Posted Mar 14, 2017
I do not like giving bad reviews, but this was just too disappointing. The staff was very nice, there was always someone cleaning in the halls and outside. However the hotel like all of South Padre island is not the tropical paradise I had hoped for. The hotel is in desperate need of updating, the bedding is old ( burn hole in covers), poor internet, the main elevator was broken, the breakfast was terrible, the hotel restaurant/bar closed at 7pm and the food was blah, drinks where served in plastic cups ( even in the "martini bar"). But this is how the whole island is....kind of dirty, kind of run down, abandoned businesses, terrible sidewalks, beach is crammed with hotels ( none of which looked any better than the one we stayed at). In town restaurants we went to kind of dirty, kind of run down. If you want a great gulf coast experience go to Gulfport MS, much much better.
