TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Ocean Villa Port Aransas
Very nice hotel. The lady at reception was very helpful (my wife likes to check things out), showed us a room, checked us in, no problem. Convenient, they told us good place for lunch and dinner, all good. Obviously an older property, but very well done. Would definitely return.
