Poor Service


October 14, 2014


Although this is a new property it is not very well organized and the staff is not trained well. The first room had a live cockoach in it and the second room the glass in the bathroom was dirty but had a lid on it. I extended my stay and stopped at the desk to update my room key staff was not able to do that correctly and I had to go back down to desk again to get that corrected. Not a good overall experience

great location and amenities beyond expectations


October 14, 2014

I did not expect such a restful visit but this suite was beyond what i thought i would get.
The beach is a 10 minute drive and the city is at the most 20 minutes downtown.
The mall is only 5 and great eateries along the way.
comfortable bed with a nice little recliner to stash away and read a book or watch TV.
the staff was friendly and helpful plus knowledgeable with the area.

From great view to hate view


October 08, 2014

When I checked in on 09/23/2014 the 1st person I saw was Mr. T (too-shay) standing behind the front desk. He had a warm, inviting smile and was very courteous and professional. I was only in town for one night and was checking out the next day. I arrived around 1600 and there was a small snafu with checking in. Mr. T had a problem with charging me. He didn't quite know how to do it because I reserved the room with a c.c. but was actually paying in cash.

It took about 5 mins to make a phone call and get everything straightened out and I was given my room key. I was assigned room 305 and it was beautiful! It has a view of the bay and you will get a nice sunset in the evenings. The Queen size bed is very comfortable and the kitchen is a very nice touch. I'm about 5'10" and the shower ceiling seemed to be 20 ft. high!

After freshening up I went to the lobby and there is a small but useful blu-Ray library. The movies are not the newest but they are FREE! I returned to my room and this is when I had a downfall in service. I put the disc into the in-room player and low and behold there was no signal from the player to the T.V.! After some investigating I noticed the HDMI cable was broken where it plugs into the T.V.

The T.V. is mounted on the wall and swings out and around for optimal viewing but somehow the cable bends when the T.V. is flat against the wall. After letting Mr. Touchet know about this, he immediately reassigned me to a room after checking with me to make sure I didn't mind. He told me to bring all my property down to the lobby so I could do the exchange.

I was only staying one night at the hotel but have been traveling for more than a month so I brought a lot of clothing with me. When Mr. T turned around and saw me standing there with a massive amount of property he was very, very apologetic because he had assigned me to room 306 which is right across the hall.

Needless to say I had to lug a complete wardrobe back to the elevator and down the hall but I did use a luggage cart on my return trip. Once inside the room I was actually a little disappointed. Room 306 seemed a little more crowded or slightly smaller than room 305 although they are directly across the hall from each other and share the same layout and furnishings and everything!

The biggest disappointment came once I looked out the window...the view is of a rundown repo business and the freeway leading towards N. Padre Island. I also noticed the door to Room 305 did not fully latch and required an additional tug to make sure it locked properly. This didn't bother me because I always pull doors fully closed but could be a safety issue to those who don't.

I checked out around 11:30 the next morning and was pleased to meet Pris at the front desk. She was a very kind spirited young woman and knew the area very well. She told me a few places close by that I could go to get my oil changed before making the trip back to San Antonio. I was also pleased to know that Mr. T had made a work order for the HDMI cable for room 305 and Pris made one that morning for the door of 305 once I made her aware it wouldn't latch properly.

The gym was very nice, the pool and veranda are amazing and I even had another guest tell me to try out the Barbecue pits there. He said they even clean them after you use them. When I went down to look at them, they looked brand new and barely used. They are under a veranda so your not baking while your cooking lol.

Lastly I would recommend getting a room on the odd number side. They have views of Oso Bay. Very beautiful setting.

We were greeted by a very friendly staff member. We were made to feel welcome from the very beginning. Everything was excellent. Clean room, nice TV, great bed, large desk area. Loved the kitchenette. Wish we could have stayed longer.
