"A Reunion Saved"
I have a group of girls whom I was their small group leader at my church through their school years. Last year, for graduation, we celebrated with a trip to Port A. They all headed off to different cities and states to pursue their college degrees. So, I planned a trip back to Port A for all of us to reconnect before school started again and hopefully […] start an annual tradition. I booked 2 nights, a Thursday/Friday in a condo on the beach. Two days before we were to leave, I realized I had booked a Wednesday/Thurh sday instead. I literally spent hours on my computer and phone trying to find us 2 nights at any condo. Nothing. I desperately did not want to disappoint the girls. So, last ditch effort was more hours trying to find anything for just Fri night. This motel actually worked with me and found me a room for just one Fri night. They were an answer to prayer and did so with a great personality. The room was for 4 and I called back to say I had 6. Again, with a great personality, I was told not to worry as the fire code allowed up to 6 in the room. Saved again. On Fri morning I drove by just to check the location and confirm a late check in (as we had all our luggage in the car and had planned a full day at the beach). The third great personality, offered me an early check in. Totally saved our reunion. We can't thank them enough and will definitely share our story to anyone asking for a place to stay!

"Nice clean beach hotel"
Nice clean beach hotel. I like that they had laminate and tile floor, it made it feel cleaner with all if the sand we brought in. I suggest bringing a little broom to sweep up sand between cleanings. Staff is very nice and helpful. They Let us get breakfast stuff early so we could watch the sunrise on the beach. They gave us laundry soap so we could […] do a load of laundry. It's very soundproof. Pet friendly, and never heard any or people whole in the room. We Would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"1 mile from the beach"
Nice hotel. Pretty close to the beach. My only complaint is I found dog hair on the towel once which is unavoidable in a pet friendly plaveGenuine Expedia guest review

It always seem to be less stressful if our pet is taken care of without having to board her. Our entire stay was very pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Place Ever!"
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the room is clean and comforting, close to the beach with a heated pool. I've stayed here with my family going on 3 times now and have not regretted it once.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel but a bit noisy at night!!"
Hotel stay was pleasant! Room was very clean though floors get very messy due to laminate flooring! Pool area needs updating and more pool towels!! Breakfast was very good and staff kept it very clean!! Room was noisy at night!! Overall was a good stay!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely little hotel, perhaps a bit pricey for you get. It is not within walking distance of the beach, and is a bit further down the highway from most restaurants and shops. The hardwood floors were not very clean. Other than that, the stay was very nice. The staff was very friendly. Not much to the hotel room, but it was bright and welcoming, and the […] beds were super comfy. We had noisy neighbors our last night there, and the staff was helpful in getting them to keep it down. I would probably look for something closer to the beach next time, but otherwise, would not mind staying here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
No problems noted. Check-in was quick and problem-free. Room and bathroom were clean, and air conditioning was OK. Pool water was clear. Overall a good, affordable vacation spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super affordable basic accomodations."
The hotel is a bit old and the bathrooms could use some TLC, but this is more than made up for by the super friendly staff, personal attention and it was so affordable! It is pet friendly as well. Pool is nothing to write home about, but we spent all the time at the beach so it did not matter. Rooms are a mid 60's with renovations, except the bathrooms […] which they really should work on. Our toilet sang all night and the bathtub drain simply could not handle a shower from a sand filled tourist. That being said, the staff was simply superb! Heather, the owner's daughter was on hand and was extremely helpful in orienting us around the local sights and restaurants. Lindsay, the morning front office person, simply cannot do enough to make sure you are happy. Her smile alone is worth the price of the visit. The breakfast room girls were extremely nice and helpful making sure everyone knew how to make waffles.0 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Island Hotel Port Aransas"
The facility was very clean and the staff really helpful. The only issue we had was that the beds were very hard and we did not get a very good nights rest. The hotel is convenient to everything in Port A.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for a pet-friendly weekend at the beach!"
The Island Hotel Port Aransas is the perfect pet-friendly hotel for a weekend at the beach! Island decor, tile floors and great breakfast. The beach is not far and your 4-legged family member is treated well! We definitely will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Island Hotel Review"
The hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. Our room was neat and clean. They had a good variety of items in their free continental breakfast. Although there is a coffee maker in the rooms, there is coffee available 24 hours in the day in the hotel lobby. The hotel is well kept and the maintenance is up to date. The hotel is getting a complete fresh […] coat of paint on the exterior. My children enjoyed the pool. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right around the corner of the beach"
I stayed 5/22/14 for one night with a few friends. It was really nice and cute. Everything was clean. The staff was very sweet. I wish that the breakfast was open a little later though. But strawberry Texas shaped waffles were perfect!Genuine Expedia guest review
"The staff is always pleasant and accomadating"
We always enjoy our stay here. It's very clean and quiet. I was pleased to see the we're putting in a new coat of paint for the summer!! My only wish is that they would include hard boiled eggs or yogurt with breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my favorite hotel ever. I felt like I was at home. The staff was excellent,the room was light, airy, beachy, understated, clean and had everything we needed. I hate hotels with cheap, tacky art and furniture, but this place had none of that. The pool was perfect and the heat came on automatically when the evening got cool. The complimentary […] breakfast was really good, too! This is my new favorite destination. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"GREAT PLACE TO STAY"
Very friendly staff and comfortable room. We would stay there again in the future. Very close to the beach, not walking distance but very close drive. If you get there early, they try to get you in your room if available at that time.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Port A Vacation"
Staff was very friendly and cooperative! Room was clean except that it felt like there was a fine layer of sand on the tile floor both nights we stayed there. Air conditioning worked well. Breakfast was okay. We enjoyed the heated pool. Hotel is located on outskirts of Port A but was still close enough to beaches, the jetty, birding centers and restaurants […] to not be a problem.

"Good for Families or Those on the Go"
We were hoping to get back to the Tarpon Inn, but were too late. Thus, unfamiliar c other accommodations in Port Aransas, we went by Expedia ratings. The overall 4.1 seems to fit the bill and was accurate: Not a luxury hotel and not a Motel 6 by any stretch, it seemed to beat the average between the two. Worked for us, as we didn't plan on really being […] in the room much except to sleep or rest. It was clean, well kept, more or less plain but OK+. We noticed several families there and several guests c dogs......that was nice and everyone seemed to be having a great time at the nicely maintained pool area. Convenient to the beach and downtown area, on the main road in but away from the hustle and bustle too. Bottom line: Price is right, rooms are clean, staff is superb.

"Pleasant stay in Port A"
We enjoyed our stay at the Island Hotel. Our room was quite large. Staff were pleasant and friendly. Having the heated pool was a real plus. We found the hotel a bit out of town and by a busy highway. However, we did manage to find restaurants close by and were also able to find a close access to the beach through the back streets. This close access […] to the beach was a real bonus. We went to the beach every day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room smelt of dogs and was dirty. We asked for the room to be cleaned, which it was. However the settee was still covered in dog hair and sand and we had moved it to view the TV more easily, only to find the floor was dirty underneath. We checked out straight away and got a full refund. The receptionist / manageress was helpful. The room looked […] nice but was dirty. It was a shame because on the web site it looked nice.

"A nice place that's bright and clean"
The Island Hotel is actually a conventional two-story motel, but the whole place shows a level of care higher than most Port Aransas accommodations. The rooms are big and bright and very clean with nice beddings and mattresses. There were plenty of towels in the room and at the pool. The pool is very pleasant, clean and warm, a nice feature, with its […] own restrooms and fresh towels. Though the parking lot takes up much of the exterior space, the plants and landscaping are much better than at, say, the Travelodge or America's Best Value. And the Island Hotel staff (manager, desk staff and room attendants) was very attentive, very friendly, and genuinely took an interest in our stay. The location is about a mile and a half from the old, ramshackle "center" of Port A, but very close to the beach, just a couple of minutes away by car, ten minutes if walking.

"Pet Friendly and Clean!"
I reserved a standard no smoking room with two queen-sized beds, which was really clean and smelled fresh considering the fact it is pet friendly. The furniture is dated and should be replaced. The exterior also could use a fresh coat of paint. The walk to the beach is a bit farther than I expected but a rented golf cart was a blessing. The continental […] breakfast has much room for improvement. The standard room includes a 3-foot refrigeration and a microwave oven and that took care of our breakfast meals. On the side of the highway is rural and I liked it. On the opposite side on the 11th avenue is rental beach houses. We enjoyed our vacation. All in all was good!

Staff was very accommodating and helpful. The continental breakfast was great and there was always plenty of food. The pool was very nice. We enjoyed having access to a guest computer. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a moderate and affordable hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great mid-week rates"
This was a very pleasant stay. The room was very clean and all utilities were in great working order. It is located close to the Port Aransas commerce centers. No frills here as the place is one of the older establishments still in operation. But it seems well maintained and there seems to be great concern with cleanliness within the room. And the mid-week […] rates were great. We would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Employees of the hotel were friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone going to Port Aransas as a great place to stay. The hotel was quiet. Only problem we had, the people upstairs had a heavy foot when they walked on the hardwood floors, but it was not too bad we still got some sleep. […] Also could have had a more healthy breakfast like yogurt. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I really wanted to love this place but.."
When we arrived to check-in, the lady behind the counter was very nice and welcoming. Our room was clean and cute. We were in the room for about 30 minutes before we decided to hit the beach. That evening (our first night at the hotel) we were attending a wedding in town. As we started to get ready, I noticed the room had no iron, which I can deal with […] since they had a laundry room. I started the shower and my husband took the clothes down to the laundry room tumble out the wrinkles. Well....the power was out in the laundry room (we had to track down a maintenance worker to find this out), which meant that the hot water was out, which I didn't realize until I climbed in the shower (we were not notified that the hot water would be out until the following morning at check-in or any point that day). By the time we got home from the wedding, I was too tired to care. The following morning, the hot water was working, but I kept hearing this scratching in the walls. The people in the room (with a connecting door to our room) had 2 little dogs that spent the next two days barking and scratching holes in the walls and connecting door. Then to top everything off, our last night at the hotel, the T.V. went out, which I was using to drown out the screaming match that was happening at 11:45pm by those lovely neighbors of ours. When I called down to the front desk, no one answered. Nothing hot for breakfast unless you want to make your own waffles. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good Location, Great Room"
Everything about the stay was very comfortable. It is right across from Sharkys, which was a great place to party it up. The pool was broken when we arrived, but after we notified the hotel staff it was up and running immediately, and the 90 degree water was really nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
