Finding a decent place to stay in Port Aransas is a challenge and while this place is a bit better than most, it is still lacking. I didn't find any of the friendly staff noted in other reviews. While they were not rude (or friendly) to me they were pretty nasty with each other. I did not feel like respected guest. The place is right on the main street and the rooms so poorly insulated that you can hear traffic all night long or the noisy, yapping dogs down the hall. My room door did not open more than half the time due to lack of repair and you can see signs the place needs paint and minor upkeep all around. I get the challenges of COVID and constant sea air but I will be staying somewhere else on my next visit.

The parking lot was extremely small and the beds were very very uncomfortable and they could do a little better at cleaning the rooms, especially the kitchen part.

Thank you for your review

First let me say the staff was very cheerful & helpful, polite & eager to please. But we do have some suggestions: please supply kitchen with salt & pepper. I asked at front desk too & there was none). Also a dish drying rack. Dish towels just don't dry in the humidity there so they stink. Additional garbage bags (at least 2-3) in the bottom of the bin would help, as ours got full I took out the garbage but then had to hunt down housekeeping for another bag. The weather stripping needs to be installed at the door as rain (& flies too) came in under the large gap at the door when it stormed & made the carpet wet. Carpet was filthy-it smelled of pet urine & when my bed pillow fell down it got lots of pet hair all over it-YUK. Rip out that stinky, stained, dirty carpet & replace with flooring that can be mopped please.
