... br> Today we had lunch at a small family resturant where they had all you can eat fish and shrimp. We all had plenty. We then went to beach and walked among the spring breakers. The crowds are not huge, but its building. Bev was observing a jellyfish that was washed up by the tides, and one of the long fine tentacle wrapped around her ankle. Needless to say, she soon had a burning sensation where ...
... Should I keep going on, should I publish as I go,
should I just drop the whole thing, or just let it happen as it is now? **** if
you are not confused I know I am.
I carried on with a number of topics to talk/write about, if
I continue to carry on with this line of thinking or if I even remember that I
was considering carrying on with this line of thinking. Anyways I am posting
this about 2 weeks after I wrote it, as, and I thank you, some people ...
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. ...
Joan and Bev went to water aerobic about 8:30. I went for a drive. Joan now lives in Laguna VIsta which is about 5 miles north of where she use to live, but still only about 7 mies from the causeway bridge to S. Padre. Temp was a comfortable 75 with breeze of 20-30 mph. Island hightway 100 goes north and south on the island, so I drove through to the north and beyoud the city. SPI only has 1700 residents, but 1000's work ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge South Padre Island
Great Time, Very spacious accomadations and great locale
We have stayed here twice. The first time was when the bridge was hit. These people did everything they possible could to make us comfortable until we determined that we had to leave. The second time was this past week end June 18, 19, 2004. The place has easy access to the beach. Our inn keepers were very friendly and again did everything possible to make us comfortable. The breakfast was crowded but moved quickly. If I had to pick it would be the watered down decaf coffe. The orange juice and waffles were ok. Would like to see the same type of cinnamon roll they serve at the Austin area La Quinta's. This should be a standard for the industry. Would rate this facility........5 Jalapenos. Others must go there.
Worth every bit of effort
We spent a nice three day weekend back on June 26,2003. I enjoyed the view, and location of this great Travelodge. We are returning with friends again this summer to spent time time close to the beach with out all the sandy film on your items.
Travelodge, Clean, Excellant Value
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Travelodge on South Padre Island. It is not a regular Travelodge. It is much nicer. It is new and the rooms and pool are clean. Hot breakfast at the property or you can walk to Ted's for the best breakfast on the Island. Located across from the convention center on the northern end of the island. Other great restaurants, Marcellos and Manuels in Port Isabel.
Highly recommend this property. Rooms are clean and large. Great location on the island. Short walk to beach with private access. Hot waffles for breakfast or kids eat free at Denny's. Will be back.
Stayed 04/04 great for money if you don't want to be on beach
For the money this is a great deal stayed at end of April for $62 in room with fridge, microwave, and entrance area with table and chairs. Nice touch of ceiling fans. Had two Queen beds. Pool is kinda small - The wirlpool is a large 12 person - not very hot. Need some guidance for parents with kids who thing spa is swimming pool. Room was cleaned dailey and towels not a problem - you do have to ask for extras for swimming. Did smell musty but take your Frebreeze and some dry carpet cleaner and that will take care of that. Bath was clean with no mold. Great deal for the money. Would stay here again. The walk to the beach is not too long and along a private path for hotel guest. Lobby has free internet access to check you e-mail.
Very nice hotel on SPI area.
The hotel is very well mantained and affordable in the price for US $79 per night you can get one suite with jacuzzi, the service is good, and the clean of the room all the days in the noon. This little hotel has a nice pool with jacuzzi with hot water. Is in the Padre Boulevard in the side of the beach, but not directly on the beach, you have to walk like a half mile to get to the beach by one exclusive walk of the hotel, anyway we have fun, the beach is very nice, better what we expected, the sand and the water very nice. I recommend this place and the South Padre Island Area for one very good and economic vacation.
Not the average Travelodge
Recently stayed at the Travelodge and was impressed by how nice the room was. Everything was clean and the rate was much lower than I would expect to pay - less expensive than a non resort property. Hot waffles for breakfast and internet access.
Stayed here for a week (Sept. 28 - Oct. 3) for a price of $32.00/night, well worth it (back of hotel door said room was $300.00/night). Room had refrigerator and microwave which came in handy. The hotel has a private walkway to the beach which is very, very nice and also has an outdoor shower. Only received maid service 2 out of 5 days, extra towels can be gotten at the front desk. The free breakfast consisted of juice, coffee, waffles, toast and a box of doughnuts that was put out every morning the week I was there (guess not too many guests to eat all the doughnuts so they kept putting out the same box). Very off season, hotel was sort of deserted, no one in the back of the hotel, all were given rooms at the front (which I didn't understand). Pool and hot tub area very nice. Also has a washer/dryer that came in handy.
South Padre Travelodge
My wife and I stayed here for a week in August. The room was comfortable, and included a small refrigerator, microwave, full-sized coffee maker, table and chairs. The hotel is located approximately one block from the beach, but it is easily accessible using the hotels private beach access walkway. Since the property is located on the northern end of South Padre, the beach was a little less crowded. The accomodations were good for the price, and we would stay here again.
A Comfortable Base for Exploring
We stayed for a week during February, found the room quiet and comfortable, located at the northern end of island development. It was a block from the sand beach, easily accessible using the motel's private beach access. The location was excellent for walking up and down the beach and is a couple of blocks from a very nice wildlife refuge. Breakfast consisting of cereals, sweet rolls, waffles with beverages was included in the cost of the room. The room was furnished nicely, included a small refrigerator, microwave, full-sized coffee maker, table and chairs. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We would recommend this motel to friends and family and would stay here again.
