"not that great"
Room: odors of mold, cigarette even that is not smoking facilities. Pool: small pool for the size of the hotel Parking: not big enough for tje size of the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the beach"
Easy access to the beach, close to Clayton's Bar and Grill, visible security and closely monitored. Loved that we could see the evening fireworks from the hotel pool, from Clayton's next door or the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dog friendly hotel"
The staff were all very friendly, the room we stayed in was comfortable. The only complaint if I had one was the size of the pool. It is pretty small, but hey the beach is within walking distance and that's was the purpose of our trip was to have fun at the beach and we did have FUN!Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay was great! Hotel was very clean at all times! In the hotel and on the grounds. The only complaint I had was we got a suite with a couch bed because there was 5 of us. The mattress on the couch bed was AWEFUL!!! It was like a box springs and no maytress! We had to take both big comforters off the regular beds just to give it enough padding so […] she could stand to sleep on it!! Again they were absolutely terrible!!!! I would have liked our beds to be a little softer but we just soft beds so that was just us. Other than the terrible couch bed, it was the most awesome vacation we have ever had!! All in all the hotel was fabulous! It was right on the beach which I loved! I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone! It has a beautiful view from both sides. A great place to spend a family vacation! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Should have stayed at the Hilton next door. Just a few dollars more and very nice pool. I know you have the beach but my kids want a pool also the La Quinta pool is very small. When I say small I mean small my pool at home is bigger. The hotel is right next to a public beach access and bar.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the beach"
Nice for the price and it's right on the beach. Will book with them again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and very near the beach"
All the staff were very friendly. Even on a busy afternoon, the staff are calm and reasonable to others. I have stayed at this hotel more than twice, and I plan on continuing doing business with this hotel. My family and I never regret our stay. Wonderful breakfast and comfortable price!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location, hotel was slightly dated, I was disappointed with size of balcony. Did have 2 elevators so that was greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mediocre hotel at premium summer prices..."
Location/beach access are good; staff was helpful and friendly. However, hotel is in need of an update. At check in, hotel room floor was still sandy from previous guest(s) and while beds were made/towels folded just didn't seem 'clean'. Upon arrival (3pm), there was a small line of people waiting for clean rooms- maybe housekeeping staff should be […] increased during weekends. Elevator smelled dirty, and elevator display was held in place with electrical tape. For what we paid, this is the level of quality? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again only if I had no choice"
The hotel needs some major cleaning. Our room was not cleaned well and the bathroom was dirty. The view was good from our balcony but the door was broken and would not lock. The access to the beach was great, which is the best thing about this hotel. The pool is little and was very crowded the whole week we were there. Half the people there did not […] wear their wrist bands, which give us access to the pool and breakfast, and management was never around to check persons at the pool or breakfast for wrist band, so it was a free for all.

"Great hotel and great location"
The hotel is clean and well kept. The location is perfect, right next door to Clayton's beach bar which features live music in the evenings. We could sit out at the pool or on the deck and enjoy it! The beach is right outside the door of the hotel. The breakfast features fresh eggs and breakfast tacos every morning along with fluffy waffles. My family […] of five all loved it. We will stay here again for sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clayton's bar next door was fun!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Front desk was extremely rudeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Absolutely wonderful hotel setting. I felt like I was on a resort in Mexico! Wonderful staff opened doors for you. Cabana bar live bands every day. Couldn't have asked for a better vacation experience!Genuine Expedia guest review
The only downside is they only have one highchair so at breakfast many families were having to eat with their babies on their laps which is difficult but other than that it was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Who needs sleep???"
First off the staff here is fantastic...except the maids. They are horribly rude. The front desk, the bar area and the groundskeepers were very nice and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean, but I expected more for what we paid. You can here everything on the floor above you. Both nights is sounded as if there was someone running a marathon up […] and down the hallway on the floor above us. Then it sounded like there were people jumping up and down...it was just loud and I didn't sleep well either night we were there and I should've been exhausted from being on the beach all day.

Nice beach location, but a bit crowed. It was the 4th of July weekend. Very nice property. Only complaint was the fan motor to a/c was on and off again and room next door was up real late. Just left bathroom fan on to drown out noise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice beach front hotel"
Free hot breakfast, spacious room w balcony n sofa bed, convenient beach front access, pretty good food w decent price at the bar n grill in the back of hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach. Small pool though."
Had a great time with my family. Beach is within walking distance. Beach bars and restaurants within walking distance. Pool just a little too small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location great but not worth the money"
They elevators didn't work right my husband got suck in them. The halls were very outdated but the rooms were nice and very big our view of the water was really good but their pool was very small the worst part was that the breakfast room was right above our room so we had a very loud 6 am wake up call every morning. There is not enough parking spaces […] so if they fill up you have to park a cross the street wich is really a pain . Our room was never cleaned the whole time just empty the trash and made the beds Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"So close to the beach!"
I really liked the hotel. It is clean and comfortable, for a short stay. Had a great pool and the beach was very close.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel with great beach access."
Our first room was a disaster with water coming through the ceiling in the bathroom. This happened while both children were already asleep. It wasn't fun moving rooms late at night. When I first noticed the leak, I tried cleaning the wet areas and the towel was black because the floor was that dirty. The pool was ok. It was hot like bath water even […] in the mornings so not too refreshing. There were also lots of guest swimming in their clothes and not suits. The access to the beach was awesome and the conscience of the bar & grill for a quick dinner was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location on the beach"
I think the price is too high for this hotel. The building is old and it needs maintainance. Breakfast is just Ok, waffles, eggs, fruit, etc. next door Hilton Garden Inn the breakfast is much better, of course you have to pay.We had a good time and enjoy our stay because of the location of the hotel and next to the hotel there is a restaurant-bar with […] music with a good atmosphere.The hotel had an agreement for lunch with the Hilton to provide special menu, this choice was good, $8.99 each plate. We liked to have this choice and don't have to go out looking for places to eat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The worst experience ever. The entire hotel needs renovation due to pet friendly hotel. There should not be any carpet with pets allowed to stay. The cleaning staff half cleaned rooms. The air condition only worked in the rooms so just imagine you could smell all dogs throughout. Not impressed at all. I would not recommend any one else there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The best deal on the Island"
This hotel really gave us a great value for our money. It's directly on the sand, provides a GREAT buffet breakfast, with several options for lunch and dinner. The rooms are big and clean, and the view is spectacular. Each room has a microwave and a mini fridge, which was very convenient. We traveled as a family with kids and a grandma, and we all had […] the best time. As you plan your budget, factor in money for renting umbrella and chairs as those are not free. Major chain restaurants as KFC, Pizza Hut and others are also within a short drive. Book online as it's much cheaper. We definitely plan on staying there again in the future.

"The best hotel on south padre island"
I am a returning customer to this hotel & it is by far the best. First thing, they have a wonderful breakfast free for guests on the fourth floor. If you have ever been to padre island then you know the sand is super hot to walk on to get to the beach. This hotel has the shortest 'hot walk'. If you have kids, toys, towels, food & drinks for the beach […] this is the best walk! The Hilton next door was a nightmare. Very long walkway of hot burning sand to get to the beach. The rooms are perfect, just what you need. Nothing more. The partial view was a beautiful view. No need to pay more! Fire alarms went off two nights in a row & kept my baby awake. I said something to them that I lost sleep. They comp't me a free nights stay. It worked out great for us as we wanted to stay longer. I will be a long term customer to this hotel.

Convenient for those with small pets. Pool was tiny. Nice beach access.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again."
Parking seemed a little limited since there were a lot of beach goers using the motel parking lot. Probably could limit them to the outer area and paying guests parking closer to the motel. Wasn't handy for loading, unloading.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"employees where helpful and friendly"
I READY LIKED STAYING THERE CLOSE TO THE BEACH CLAYTONS NEXT DOOR WAS PERFECT, YOUR BAR AND GRILL WAS AWESOME FOOD AND EMPLOYEES GREAT!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach!"
Overall the hotel was great except for the beds. It always felt like there was sand in the bed. Other than that. The hotel staff was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very very nice nice. We had a balcony, facing the beach; we saw a show from our balcony below, with hula dancers! And then, a fireworks display! And you can walk or stay on this side the gate and enjoy the music from Clayton's. PLENTY of patio seating facing the ocean. It was incredible. Hotel was clean and new; with a sitting couch. Not warn down at […] all, the furniture. On premises bar facing beach was nice, too! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Older hotel, way too small pool.."
Was an OK stay. The hotel is showing its age. Walls are thin, you here everything next door. The pool was way too small for the size of the hotel and was way too hot. Felt like a hot tub. Wish we would have stayed next door at the Hilton Garden inn. 3 times the size of pool. Much nicer rooms and newer. We had friends staying there. That's where we will […] go next time.

"Everyone are very nice"
Receptionist very friendly and our rooms are excellent and we appreciate they we were at the first floor coz we have dogs. Our dogs are well behaved and they are very familiar with La Quinta. The view is priceless and we will definitely be back soon!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff was super friendly and accommodating. Location was great and had great views of the beach. Room was clean and the free breakfast was sufficient. My family had a great experience with La Quinta. The only thing that would have made my stay better would have been if the swimming pool was bigger. Other than that over all stay was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great SPI beach hotel."
Family and I stayed the weekend of Father's Day. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Room was clean, comfortable bed, and beautiful view of the beach. The beach is right behind the hotel. Loved that the staff would come out to the beach to take drink and food orders. Staff was extremely nice and friendly. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"major renovation needed"
This was our first visit to South Padre Island and first stay at any La Quinta Hotel. I was very disappointed at the standard of upkeeping! The hallway carpeting was so worn and stained, and very musty smell. Although, they have renovated some of the things in the rooms, it definitely need major overhaul! From furniture to bedding, vanity to tubs! However, […] I have to give the staff credit, they were all very nice and tried to work w/us on getting accommodated when another customer took our room! I had 2 rooms side by side, but somehow it got taken! It is definitely not a hotel I would recommend to stay at unless the upkeep of rooms has improved! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay at La Quinta"
Check with your phone for deals on the Hotels.com App I saved alot of money booking through there and you can even call and mention the deals on the app. Loved the stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Padre LaQuinta"
Sheets on beds were old and fought pillows were not fluffy one elevator was out the whole stay and on one day both elevators were out door to balcony would not stay closed with out chain lock carpet in hallways needs to be updatedGenuine Expedia guest review
After reading other reviews prior to reserving a room, I had much higher expectations of La Quinta. I was under the expectations that this was a newer hotel but that was not the case. Customer service was great however the hotel was in pretty bad shape. The elevators were slow and/or not working. The carpeted hallways and stairwells were smelly. I couldn't […] believe the how small the pool was! This was really disappointing! I have no idea why they didn't design this hotel with a bigger pool...there was no room to swim. I have to admit, the free breakfast they advertise was great...they did a great job every morning. It would also be helpful if the staff spoke English...it's frustrating when asking a question about the hotel and not having someone being able to understand me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable rooms"
We enjoyed our vacation in South Padre island and La Quinta provided us with the comfort that we needed. The staff is incredibly friendly and the continental was beyond what we expected. They had waffles, chorizo and egg, ham and egg and bacon and egg along with refried beans. Who else offers that?Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall very satisfied , the only thing I didn't care to much for was the language barrier . The only ones who spoke english were the ones at the front desk , everybody else spoke spanish.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too Expensive, poor quality."
Some of the staff at the front desk was rude. Also, they did not honored my late check out request. Also, the parking is very narrow. I will never go back to this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great beach access"
Good basic place to stay. Nothing stood out besides it having access to the beach. No complaints though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"wonderful for dogs and kids!!!!!!"
I love dogs and kids but they were both in abundance when my friend and I stayed over the Mother's day wk/end. I guess I left my family spirit at home! The location couldn't have been better but the pool was tiny and filled with - yes - kids. No swim up bar or any bar outside that I could find. There was a grill room but I didn't see much activity and […] the night we'd planned to eat there it was empty and gave off '0' ambience - we went next door. There was no gift shop or mini market for our convenience. The only real + was the complimentary breakfast which was superb - 10 out of 10. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and view / elevators terrible"
Staff was very friendly. Location was amazing walking out right onto the beach. Although the breakfast could have had more variety, free breakfast is always a plus. The hotel in general was good, but you can just tell it's a bit old. The elevators were terrible throughout the duration of our stay (Thurs - Sun). There are only two elevators which you […] will wait literally 5 minutes for each time. You will learn quickly that the stairs are much faster, especially during check out (yes, even if you have to carry your bags down). Our room was fantastic and spacious as it extended to accommodate a couch, table microwave and fridge. Patio view looking out to the beach was refreshing. The room had a certain ocean odor to it though even after it was cleaned. I think it had more to do with our dirty laundry (I hope). All in all, good stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Experience was as expected, no hassles. If you want a resort this isn't for you. If you want beach access with a few amenities, it's perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Place has changed."
This is about the sixth time we stay there. Eating places are a distance from the hotel that you must drive. Also too many animals and much barking at night or early morning. Good for young couples that like music but not a quiet getaway anymore. Will not be going there anymore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the beach."
Could really hear the noise in hall and from rooms next door.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel!!! Best Beach in Texas.."
Really Nice...and good Hot Breakfast!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Once you are in your room, everything is okay. Beds where comfortable and location was great for us........ but from the parking lot to your room stinks. Hotel stinks of some kind of mix of dirty diapers and nastiness......BUT my room didn't smell at all.....it was just all the hallways, elevator, Lobby. They give you two green wrist bands so you have […] access to the pool and breakfast but nobody checks the bands so anyone could be swimming in the pool and eating the breakfast. (I think next time I'll stay at a cheaper hotel and come use La Quinta pool and eat breakfast for free) Breakfast was good, they had huge Texas waffles with strawberries!!! Very good! Coffee was good too. Access to the beach was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
