... drive since I hadn't done that for awhile. Driving through the Port of Brownsille, you can see the tops of many ships that come up the 17 mile channel. This area is great for ships as the are protected from bad weather, such as hurricanes, etc. It has also become the center for the scaping of US navy ships. Doing three ships now with 60,000 tons of scrape steel. We ate out again, which was ...

Another semi-lazy day. Up at 7:30 and made a few phone calls. We had lunch scheduled today with Joan and her water aerobics group that have lunch together once a month. For sure, Bev was the youngest and I was the next youngest. Guessing their were over 40 seniors in the group. I have to admit that they had a great time celebrating an early St. Pat's Day. No green beer, but lots of Irist stuff. Great location and great food. We ...
It was a pretty lazy day. Started with a great Mexian breakfast at Manuel's, a small family run resturant. Then we climbed the steps of the light house in Port Isabel. It was an interesting and challenging climb. The last set of steps were actually two ladders that were straight up. It was a beautiful view but it was overcast so pictures were not the greatest. Then we drove to the Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge. This area is know for the only remaining ocelots. ...
... that commute. As you travel out of town the sand from the beaches beome more evident. Pictures will help tell the story.
After a little walk around the complex where Joan lives, and along the wharf for those that have boats, we went to have dinner at Pier 19. Food was great and the sunset beautiful. A nice relaxing day that ended with a conversation with a old friend from Thermop that I hadn't visited with for over 20 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Suites South Padre Island
My Family and I arrived in South Padre 6/5/04 And we did arrive Early they had no where to store luggage for early arrivals, They Have 4 Floors And 4 Maids which is not enough Maids When You Have About 20 rooms on a Floor, so Therefore The Next Day Our room Didn't Get Cleaned Until 5PM! The Followning Day The Maid Didn't Clean The Room Until almost 3 I Went to the Front desk And Told The Manager and He Had To Call The maid and Have Her Clean Our room. We went Into The Laundry Room And It Was Dirty And Get This We Went Back to The Laundry Room The 2nd Day and it was Still dirty, People Threw Away Their Food in The Laundry Rooms And it had a Bad Smell, in the Rooms The Carpet had stains and the Rooms Kinda Smelled Musty. It Was awful and i did Complain and was Refunded for 1 night this hotel was not worth 130.00 A Night! I Will Never Stay There ever again!
Nice place for families
We stayed here after Memorial Day for 3 nights.
The hotel was clean, the staff was nice. We checked in at 4:30, but the room wasn't ready (the front desk guy apologized and lowered our rate a bit). A nice, hot breakfast makes a quick start to the day - just get downstairs early enough to make a waffle on the iron - yum. The breakfast area gets crowded later in the morning after 9 or so. The pool was nice, but who cares, since the beautiful gulf's green waters are only 100 yards away through their private walkway to the beach. I'd stay here again. We got the king 1-bedroom suite with the foldout couch for the kids. There aren't a lot of those, so reserve early.
Great place to stay and golf
Great location, helpful staff and very clean rooms. For the price, its a bargain.
Comfort Suites on Padre Island, Texas
My sister and I were in South Padre the week of Feb. 15th for 4 days of sun and Mexico. we always go in Feb. and stay in a condo, couldn't get what and where we wanted, so we chose to stay at Comfort Suites... every one was nice and courteous And VERY HELPFUL, the suite was clean and was ready when we got there. The breakfast was very good and a free newspaper. In fact it was so good we decided to stay over another day. Not what WE want in the summer, we couldn't see the water, but for what we went for this time, I have to say we got our money's worth. and we will probably do it again...
Loved the Island and Comfort Suites
We had a great time. Weather was perfect. Staff at hotel were helpful. A great deal for the money. Hotel was clean. Breakfast was awesome. Bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits, toast, cereal, waffles, juice every day. Pool area was nice and clean. Only drawback was not being able to see the beach. But the walkway to the beach wasn't really that far. We would defintely stay here again.
Good for the money, but not amazed.
The Comfort Suites are affordable and contain all the amenities...a very convenient private entrance to the beach was enjoyed..how ever-the front desk staff was unprofessional and at times un cordial to my group, I assumed because we were only 18 years old. When we asked foe extra pillows because the ones we had were paper thin we were told that we could not have any more, and after persistance we finally told that we would have to go get them ourtselves and that they could not be brought to our room. We were new to traveling to Padre and arrived a little early, but we were promptly informed that our room would not be cleaned any earlier to accomodate us. We had to wait in the lobby for 2 hours. If it was all I could afford I would stay again...but only on those conditions!
Enjoyed Our Stay
The Comfort Suites provide very relaxing and quiet lodging. The room was clean and large with a comfortable bed. The staff members of this motel are friendly and helpful. The private walkway offers access to a nice beach area. We enjoyed our stay!
Loved the Comfort Suites
I booked with very little notice for a weekend stay. The property was clean and the staff was most helpful. There was a walkway for the guests to use to get to the beach. The pool area was small, but kept clean. Breakfast, which was included in the price, consisted of bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits, gravy, pancakes or french toast, and cereal.
If you are considering a pricey condo, you may want to choose this property. The rooms are huge! The only thing that would make this property better would be if it had an ocean view!
What a fantastic stay!!
We had a really wonderful stay in this relatively new property! The room was extremely clean and well-kept. The staff was super friendly and helpful! We appreciated the ever-ready hot-breakfast! The pool exceeded our expectations!! This beats a condo because somebody else makes your bed and empties the trash for a change!! Try it! You will be equally pleased for the money!!
Nice place to stay. Quiet.
Very clean. Friendly staff. Great free hot breakfast.
