Padre South Hotel On The Beach, South Padre Island
The view is priceless. The rooms are dated but it's clean and comfortable. I used the public beach access a few feet away from the hotel's sand path, very convenient and delightful. Due to a drain issue, they had me move to another room for the 2nd night. The appliances were more current, and the bed was even more comfortable. The only ding for me... Nothing for breakfast except coffee. I got the 20% off next door coupon, but that restaurant wasn't open. Denny's is within walking distance, or, plan ahead and bring groceries.

We mainly stay there because it's on the surf side. They no longer have complementary breakfast, bummer. There is now a restaurant/ bar on the same property. Instead of the complementary breakfast the hotel gives out a 20% for the restuarant. Overall the hotel served its purpose. Also, be sure to take your own ice.
