Pretty nice hotel, only complaints is that the TVs are tricky to use, and the breakfast wasn't that easy to get too, since too few tables. Not bad!

good location right on the beach
The only thing I didn't like about my stay was that people had their dogs with them.. I didn't know this was a dog hotel. I would've stayed somewhere different. I have allergic allergies. The only thing good about this hotel was that it was right on the beach. So you could walk from the pool down the walkway to get there. The room smelled like smoke so the maid gave me a bottle of air freshner to use for the one night that we were there. The Free breakfast was a plus with made to order omelet station and breakfast taco's ... if your only staying for a day or two this hotel is fine but for a week I would stay elsewhere.

Great value!
We have stayed at La Copa several times. It always seemed a great value. This time we stayed for a week. The minor things that annoyed me this time: the room didn't have enough lamps in it. One lamp on one side of a kind sized bed. No lamp on the other side or on the desk. You had to turn overhead lights on to see after dark. And they seemed chintzy with their soap. There was one bar in the bathroom which we had to share between sink and shower. The next day after the maid refilled the missing one, we had enough soap for both places. This probably could have easily been resolved by going to the desk and asking for another bar, but once you're all burrowed in for the night, it's annoying that you would have to do that. The pillows weren't great. We brought our own since we drove this time, but when we fly, it's a problem. The room appeared to be very clean but had a faint, lingering smell of cigarette smoke each time we first came into the room after being gone (it was a non-smoking room). I received friendly service at the desk. The breakfast was delicious and really makes the stay a value. Made to order omelet, waffles with strawberries, breakfast taco makings, cereal, etc. Lots of choices and delicious! The temperature controlled pool is wonderful! Warm for swimming in cool weather and cool for swimming in hot weather. It's a short walk across the sand dunes from the pool to the beach. Great for viewing sunrises.

Low quality hotel
We were VERY disappointed in La Copa Inn. The pictures online show a large, beautiful pool (it was small and dirty), a beautiful breakfast area (it was round tables with chairs), and immaculate rooms. The pool was small and dirty, even at 9am and the hotel blared loud music the entire time. The breakfast area was not as depicted online; it looked like a church fellowship hall with plastic tables and chairs. The breakfast was not good either—stale cereal, hot strawberry topping for waffles (should have been cold) and the “hot syrup” was lukewarm. Our room wasn’t horrible. It was mostly clean, the bed was comfortable, and the jacuzzi was awesome. When we pulled back the sheets, there was, what looked like, several drops of blood on the mattress protector. The air conditioner was LOUD and didn’t cool off well. We told the front desk and asked for them to fix it. As far as we know, they did nothing. It was still loud the entire day/night. The towels were dingy and hard-the picture I attached doesn’t show just how dingy/hard they were. The safety latch was busted off the door. We were on the first floor and had people yelling/running up and down the hall until about 1am. Everything had an extra fee—we wanted to shoot pool-$5 fee; rent chairs-$15; rent lounge chairs-$30. Staff was rude to us every time we talked to them.

Lovely vacation
We had a great time at SPI. Our stay at La Copa Hotel was excellent. Would definitely stay again! Breakfast was beyond what we expected. It made our stay at South Padre Island an memorable vacation.
