5200 miles so far.

Down from San Antonio. So glad the traffic wasn't bad going south. Not much between SA and Corpus, just HUGE fields along both sides of I-37, plus a few oil wells, and more windmills (not like west Texas, but quite a few. Drove through Corpus Christi. Very impressed how large and prosperous looking it is. Course, I haven't been here in 25 years, ...

... that prepares the mouth-watering smoked meat.

When we arrived that Thursday for home smoked beef brisket, it was 11 year old Ellie who greeted us with her great big, friendly smile, took our order, our money and gave us our change and said “yes, ma’am” and “no, ma’am” to my many questions.

And then it is 15 year old Makenna and 14 year old Kacey who keep folks returning for ...

... in a lot of winter business. Many even shun the Snowbird title in preference to Winter Texans.


Aransas, Port Aransas, Padre Island and Corpus Christi are all within 35 miles of Rockport where we did laundry, shopping, eating out, library work and just plain meeting folks. We love the area. It has that small town feel with all the amenities of a real ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Port Aransas Inn

    Needs Updating


    My first impression of this motel was that it needed to be bulldozed down......the pictures on the internet are deceiving....the rooms have window air conditioners and they rattle like crazy....hard to sleep with so much racket going on....the first room we stayed in had a good bed but we moved because of the air conditioner and the second room had a terrible mattress (oh, my aching back)...Also, your should be able to block out the morning sun, if you want to sleep in, but this is virtually impossible...I agree with a previous reviewer that they should skip the theme rooms & invest some money in updates...would be willing to pay more for more comfort...reading the review from the college student, I've decided that this would be a fairly decent place for them to stay during Spring break,etc.

    Phones and Cable TV in the Room


    I read on this website that the Port Aransas Inn did not have tv's and phones. This is totally untrue. Just wanted to correct the record from one comment made in 2003. I think that lady was remembering the Tarpon Inn. I was recenty in Port Aransas and noticed that the Port Aransas Inn's rates are some of the best in town.

    Great place to stay!


    Clean and comfortable, nice pool area. Very reasonable prices. Best of all, the staff is very friendly and makes you feel welcome! You can't beat the location, which is close to the beach, all shopping and restaraunts.

    They were there when we needed them...


    My friends and I were up there two spring breaks ago. All the other hotels were rude and expensive. We made reservations at another hotel and when we arrived they pushed us aside because we were college students. We had no reservations and no were to stay!! On the way out of town we saw a bright pink hotel and thought we would give it another shot. The wonderful people at Port Aransas Inn helped us find a room and made sure our stay was ok. I want to say a Big Thank You for taking a chance with the college students, were not all bad!!

    Excellent value and, more importantly, truly S. Texas friendly


    My wife, Mo and I ( both from San Antonio) are becoming quite the regulars at this wonderful property in Port A. Believe me we are very particular about our activities and lodging in the little city we've both cherished since our childhoods. In a way we feel we are practically locals and this locale retains the charm that is truly Port Aransas. I'd advise anyone to call this place a home away from home- time and time again. With all the growth Port A is undergoing it is getting tougher to find lodging where you are appreciated and eagerly welcomed back as if you were family. Randy and Patty, the owners, and their staff maintain that fun, friendly laid- back atmosphere where you feel like one of Port A's own.

    OK for a couple of days...


    We just returned from a 2 nt. stay in the Safari Room...well, they should skip the theme stuff and provide maid service! The Inn was clean and had a typical beachy appearance but could use some up-dating...Mgmt. was helpful in recommending where the locals eat and let us have a late check out but we would only stay here again for a short visit...the room was very small and the pool is in need of repairs.

    It felt like a home away from home


    It felt like a home away from home at the Port Aransas Inn. The rooms are clean, comfortable, amd cozy. The hotel also has great beach access and is nearby all the gift shops in town. It was also very nice to sit on the balcony and smell the ocean air and just relax. I have stayed there twice before and am going to go back this year for spring break.

    I would defintely recommend this hotel if your looking for something comfortable and affordable.

    Very Pleasant Stay


    After touring several cottages near the beach, we settled on the Port Aransas Inn, which was tucked away down 11th St. but still near the beach. We got a "theme room" for the same price as an average room ($39) and it was clean, larger than the cottage rooms, and nicely appointed. It's also quieter, since it's not on the "main drag" of Ave. G. One note: the "Victorian Bordello" room smelled thickly of carpet deoderizer, so if you're sensitive to smells, avoid it. The "Magnolia" room was superb, however. Visit the web site.

    Cozy and comfortable, will stay there again


    My husband, two teens and I went to stay at the Port Aransas Inn, Port Aransas, Tx for Christmas. We had a wonderful time and will go again. There were 2 rooms, one with 2 queen-sized beds and a living area with kitchen that included a sofa bed. There were also 2 full baths. We had plenty of room and found it very comfortable and quiet. Our only caveat is that the mattress on the sofa bed was thin, so we would suggest taking an inflatable mattress to make it more comfortable. The owners were wonderful and quite helpful. This may become our holiday tradition. We found Port Aransas to be a great place to visit over Christmas.

    Old-fashioned and Delightful


    This inn has real old-fashioned charm - beware if you need telephones or TVs cos the rooms in this hotel have neither! It was peaceful and the rooms are delightfully decorated. The best part of the day was sitting on the balcony sipping a beer watching the sun go down...

    really recommended.
