    We choose this hotel because had a good price and good score at Booked.net. A So we were surprise when we end up having lots of problems with The Inn. We got there and was asked to pay a extra 40 dollars for security guards because of Spring Break, they said that every hotel does that but the Travelodge we stayed our last night in South Padre didn't charge us for "security" and they had lots of guards. They charged our card for 200 dollars security deposit they requested. The remote control didn't work even after asking assistence twice.

    Rooms were dirty, bath tube greasy, water in the ice bucket, dust in the tv stand. Something under the sink was open, like someone was fixing something and forgot to close up.

    Room was extremely dirty , pizza crust behind night stand. The shower is awful along with the water pressure and heat of the water. The tv was blurry and the sheets and towels had stains on them. Pillows seemed like they have been used for multiple years . The only good thing was the location. Other than that awful.

    The free breakfast @ the jacuzzi made my weekend.

    The only drawback I had was that the television set needs to be upgraded & they need a premium channel like Hbo or Showtime.

    Everything was fairly clean but it was like walking into a 1980's motel not what I expected for the price I payed if I would have wanted a 30.00 a night quality room I wish thats what I payed instead I paid almost 200 a night my daughters roon stunk if mine would have smelled like that I would have went home. Very dissatisfied. The only good thing was breakfast it was good.

    Everything except breakfas needs to be brought into this century

    Everything. It was dirty, old, extremely smelly, loud, poorly equipped. Sheets and towels were worn and permanently stained. Mattresses and pillows need replacing. Carpet, sofas and floors were filthy. Shower curtain would not close on either end, was torn. Laundry facilities have seen better days. Pool water resembled bath water. Needs major updating. Floors, carpet and walls were damp entire trip all day and all night. Couldn't walk barefoot. Disgusting. Trip would have been great if it hadn't been for The Inn at South Padre. We only booked here because this website made it sound decent for the price and because any other hotels within our price range didn't have availability for that weekend. But, we will never stay here again nor recommend it.

    The employees there were extremely nice and helpful They made a tremendous effort to see that breakfast was served to those who wanted to eat and the breakfast was really an expense in itself because they went all out with the breakfast. I really did enjoy my stay at The inn.

    For the money that I paid, I can't say that there was anything that I really disliked. It was a good place to stay and I would stay there again if I ever came back.

    I did not like the pillows they were a little uncomfertable to sleep with. And they should have more waffle makers so the wait wont be that long when getting breakfast in the morning.
