Having Emerald Cove directly behind you is a great amenity as well as McGee Beach right next door as its within walking distance.. the bad is its closed the night we got here at 8pm and wont open for 4 days. More bad...: room wasn't cleaned, room wasn't vacuumed, tables weren't wipped down, and there is a huge gap on our room door, you can see daylight from the otherside. Overall rundown, poor condition and obviously not well taken care of.

No maid service....terrible service! Very little amenities, yet they price gouched me for the last day of $229.00. Lodgers were not wearing masks, and no one enforcing or attempting to social distance. No security in parking lot.

Hello. We apologize that you had a less than perfect stay. We are troubled by your review. According to our records, the reservation was extended 3 separate times throughout the week. Each time at check-in, we explain the limited amenities available. We have signage posted throughout the entire property. For the safety of our associates, we are currently not providing stay-over cleaning services. Also, due to COVID-19, we are only able to operate under restricted guidelines. However, it is up to the guests to follow the recommendation of social distancing and masks. The hotel enforces pool and bar restrictions, per Texas Governor's orders. If we knew you were unhappy with the property, one would have advise to not extend your stay with us. We hope you understand. Thank you.

This building is very old. I found 3 roaches crawling around near our bed and the bathroom. When I went to the hot tub it was very dirty and there was barley room to sit since it was filled with kids. Not to mention there was another parents arguing with a small child and mom had to intervene. Would not recommend this place again. Don’t let the hotel on the beach fool you. For the price it was not worth it. Go somewhere else.

Room was nice, very clean. Comfy bed. On the beach and near activities. Ordered food at the bar, it was fairly busy. Went to check on food 45 mins later and order was never put in. He felt bad and offered to reduce the bill. Told him we are good, no worries.
