Today was a really lovely day and a much needed lovely day.

We woke up early enough to have some coffee before heading to the laundromat. Emilie came over early to warm up; her heater kept blowing the fuse in her room so she didn't have heat all night. As the three of us were getting ready to take off to do laundry, Fridman knocked on the window to see if he could bring his laundry along. The man rarely has a free moment on the lot (he's a performer ...

... issues in the bathroom. We had to tear up the carpet (thankfully there’s linoleum underneath so that’s a lot better anyway) and for the time being our toilet is out of commission. Enough said. Fridman said we’re going to need to buy a new toilet, so we’ll be checking into that after the jump tomorrow morning.

I feel as though this is probably the most boring of my blog posts so far. I’m sorry about that…it’ll be better ...

Welcome to the coast

... there’s no real reason for that feeling. The mud was somehow even worse on the lot than it was before we left and we’re wishing very much that we had been able to invest in some mud boots before today.

The weather definitely affected the day…folks were trying to stay in good moods but the temperature just kept dropping. At the ticket gate, it felt like a massive wind tunnel…both Elisa and I ...

... to our show religiously every year and how happy they are that we start our season here. After the first show, Elisa, John Moss, and I were standing at the gates thanking everyone for coming and a teenager came out of the tent just beaming. She locked eyes with John M. and gushed, “That show was AMAZING! I had so much fun! That was so. much. fun!”. He thanked her and asked if she had seen us before and I didn’t hear her response, but it ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews South Padre Beach Resort South Padre Island

    Holiday Inn Sunspree Was Excellent


    Stayed the week of July 18 at Holiday Inn Sunspree. Service and housekeeping was great Reserved an ocean front view room with incredible view, two nice clean pools, beach clean and wonderful! First trip to South Padre and everything went great. People were nice, lots of families, kids, young couples.

    Good Hotel for the Price, Excellent Location


    We just returned from a 4 day stay at the Holiday Inn on South Padre Island. I had read the reviews for many of the hotels on SPI and decided for the price to try the Holiday Inn. The service was good, the location was excellent (beach front), and the pools were good for a hotel of its size. There were actually two pools and they were both more than 4 feet deep! The bathroom could have been a little bigger with newer fixtures (the shower head sprayed everywhere) but the room was very clean. We would stay there again.

    Clean, friendly and accomodating


    We stayed here for a week during out school district spring break.

    Great location, below average everthing else.


    We picked this hotel because of the location. Check in took almost 30minutes. There was only one man ahead of us. Room wasn't ready so we were asked to return an hour later, only to wait another half hour. The room had an oicean view if you leaned over the balcony. The room was musty smelling, and appeared clean, but had old fixtures and furniture that obviously hadn't been updated since the 60's. Restaurant was closed for service. Hotel staff cordial but not very friendly. Too expensive, I made my reservations through Holiday inn only to find out thhat the man that walked in right ahead of me was offered a walk in rate, for the same room at $30.00 less.

    Wonderful Place


    I reserved an oceanside room online before coming to Padre Island. When we arrived our room wasn't available so they put us in a beautiful suite for the same price. All oceanside views at the Holiday Inn are incredible. You really are looking right at the beach and surf and nothing else. Their rates for these rooms are the same if not cheaper than other hotels. The best part of our stay was the wonderful service we recieved. We unfortunantly booked a room at a very filty roach infested motel down the road the following night (Island Inn) and ended up packing our bags and heading back to Holiday Inn. It was Friday evening so the chances of getting an oceanside room was almost impossible. The man at the front desk must have felt bad for us and gave us the suite we had the night before for the same price! What a God send. The Holiday Inn saved our vacation!! I recommend everyone to stay at a 3 star hotel, otherwise you might have to deal with roaches somewhere else.

    Great Value


    The SunSpree is a great "bang for the buck." I and my wife and daughter stayed there for 3 nights at the end of December. The room,a king suite, was clean,spacious and on the beach.(Rm 125) The pools and surrounding grounds were in excellent shape and very inviting.I booked well in advance and paid $64.00 per night. It was well worth it. The bath tub was a little shoddy. A few spots outside needed a little paint and the restaurant should have been avoided, but all in all it was great. I'll stay there again.



    The island is so beautiful-lots to do but lots of quiet, peaceful, 'restoring your inner being' places-lots of good restaurants-wonderful hospitable people work there and live there-we go back every year just to get centered again-Alan Jackson's "its five o'clock somewhere" makes us believe that somewhere has to be South Padre

    Nice hotel for the price.


    Nice hotel. The staff had all of my answers and even supplied spoons for the ice cream we bought at a local store. The rooms were nice - not above average, but the beds were comfy. Liked the two pool setup which helped keep little ones in one area and the other for adults. Access to the beach was also quite nice. All in all a good time. Oh yes, the buffet breakfast was nice.

    Ucchh - hated it


    First - I just found this hotel horrible - room is awful - dirty and bathroom is so small. Our bathroom door did not close - room close to pool - so swimming at night kept us awake. Food was horrible. Service was awful - getting towels was terrible - never knew where they kept them during the day! Place filthy - and beach is awful - you pay for everything - and the beach was filled with litter - nothing is picked up. keys never worked - had to go back to front desk 5 times a day to get key activated. Worst - our room was not cleaned until 6 every day - awful!!! and a few times they did not remove the food from night before. I would never ever ever go back to this place. and they charge a fortune -

    Don't Go the Week Before Easter


    We stayed here during the week before Easter 2003. Hotel was nice, but crowded. We didn't realize that this week is called Semana Sante and BIG families from Mexico flock in like seagulls. RUDE is the key word there. NO MANNERS whatsoever, and they never tell their screaming children to be quiet. Breakfast buffet was cold (they forgot to light the sterno). Hotel was nice. Maid service was POOR. Room still hadn't been cleaned at 4:00 in the afternoon on the first day. I would definitely go back but not during that week.
