This hotel was conveniently located on the bay and a block from the beach. My church group went and for the amenities offered, this hotel was the best decision for our group. The rooms were spacious and allowed many of those participating in our trip to cook inside the room equipped with a full kitchen. There were minor problems with the phone lines in two of the rooms, but the staff at HJ were polite and took care of the problems without complaint. I'd recommend it to anyone traveling on a budget with children. Pam, the GM was very kind, making the stay more pleasent.
The hotel is a older hotel with new paint. It was clean and very spacious. We had the standard 2 queen beds with a refrigerator and microwave. The first night we stayed they only had a handicap room. The next morning I requested a regular room. They were able to comply with my request with no trouble.
The room was very clean. The cleaning crew was polite. Great location.
There was a mishap with our room when we first checked in, but it was quickly resolved. We had wanted a room with a jacuzzi and somehow had two queen beds instead, but they switched rooms for us and we didn't have to pay the difference. Received a smoking room, we are non-smokers and could not smell the residue. Overall good stay.
The rooms are very spacious and clean. There is a balcony for every room over looking the bay. Breakfast is served every morning of donuts, toast, bagels, cereal, fruit, juice & coffee. The pool area is very scenic and relaxing. The island during the week is very laid back and not crowded. Pirates Landing & Schlitterbahn is a MUST GO!!! Definately everyone who goes to S.Padre should visit Sea Turtle Inc.
The hotel was great overall. We were there over Christmas vacation. They had a wet paint sign on the door to go to the pool area and the whirlpool for over a week, while we were there, they should of just said whirlpool not working. Two light bulbs burnt out during our stay and they would not replaced because of no maintenance during the holiday. So we changed them with other bulbs in the room because we needed them. No parking at hotel lot because of road destruction. But other then this we enjoyed our stay.
We tried Howard Johnson for the first time and it will be the last visit. Once we opened our door to the hotel room, there was an instant smell lingering. We drove to Port Isabel and bought a few candles at the local grocery store. I figured that the humidity may have had something to do with the condition of the room. The following morning, my daughter was feeling sick and dizzy. We left the room for a few hours. After we returned, we instantly smelt the nasty odor again. I looked at the air unit and there was mold everywhere! The vent under the bathroom sink did not have a cover, only exposing more mold. Our bathroom vent and vanity light did not work, and the microwave was heavily stained. We were not allowed to have a refund after we checked out early due to prepayment.
The only complaint I had was that I was under the impression that I would be ON the beach!!! The people were curtious and I didn't have any problems with noise. My boys and I enjoyed the stay, the garden tube we had in our room was great. We were on the first floor, RIGHT in front of the pirate's den and I don't remember noise as a matter of fact I almost walked over for a few drinks. Over all we had a very satisfying stay.
This hotel is in the center of the island. It is close to everything. It was clean and the staff was helpful. We even stayed an extra day with no hassles. My girls enjoyed the pool. It is nicely landscaped and quiet. Our room was very large. 1 king and 2 queen beds with a jetted tub and a kitchen. The breakfast is stocked with a variety of cereals, fruit (apples and bananas), bread for toast, and bagels. We plan to stay there again next summer. Very good value!
I liked the place a lot cause it was just like it was a big party, everybody went in each others rooms and nobody cared the people that worked there was awesome about everything and it is right by tww big clubs.
