  : The motel manager - Julie or Julia was fantastic. She was always available, my microwave went out at 8:30pm and she brought over another one for me to use. The pool was awesome! Plenty of room for me and my two grandsons. This was their favorite hotel.
  : Saw a few cockroaches but was moved to another building, did not see any in the new room.

  : A last minute stay, best value in Port Isabel. So simple, small, quaint and clean. Perfect for what we needed. Which was a place to shower, change and sleep after a long day on the Island. Would definitely stay here again because it was peaceful, economical and cosy enough for 2 people. Bare essentials and nothing more needed or necessary. Definitely a "fisherman's cove".
  : The air conditioner was very loud but also cold. It took a while to get used to the noise but not a deal breaker. Also noticed a few small roaches in the kitchen which is right next to the bed. It's more like a loft set up so don't leave anything out in the open and keep everything clean if you cook or prep meals to go. Take disinfectant and air fresheners and maybe some bug spray just in case.

  : It has been a few years since we last traveled and some things have changed/been updated. Room was clean and everything was nice. It would have been nice to have been told that the restaurant was shut down but we really don't have any complaints. We enjoyed our visit. Peaceful and relaxing trip.

  : First impressions always set the precedent. From the moment I checked in, receptionist Julie, as always, makes you feel welcome and puts you at ease with her great customer service.
  : Only 1 negative...I understand that the motel is also a marina, but the little refrigerator in the room smelled like a fish market. A good airing-out would’ve taken care of this.

  : Everything was fine for the price. I didn't have high expectations, but it all turned out, really, better than I expected. I would recommend a stay for the price I paid. Very reasonably priced.
  : The inside was a little rough around the edges, but again, for the price, it was expected not to be perfect. The pillows! The worst ever! But, Julia was kind enough to find alternatives for me.

  : The only positive was parking was directly outside of the room.
  : 1. The beds were Extremely dirty, and had stains everywhere, also had hair from other people within the blankets. Very stiff and uncomfortable. 2. the microwave and coffee pot were very old and dirty 3. the AC was hot for almost the entire time and they told us if we put it too cold it will freeze so we must leave it around 70-75 degrees. 4. We had to contact the cops on our last day of stay. There was a older lady who was knocking on all of the doors, I got scared and creeped the door open a bit at 2AM, she was asking for a ride and or for me to call a taxi, all while having a cell phone in her hands, however, i have a baby and was in no way in hell going to do that. I had to contact the PD because she was trying to open my car door, they got there quickly and took her. The next morning during CHECKOUT Cassandra, the receptionist stated they had a restraining order against her and she wasnt allowed on the premises so they would follow up with PD on that.
