A swing and a miss
We stayed at la quinta because our previous plans fell through and we needed a quick place to stay that allowed pets. I didn't have high expectations but this place failed to meet the bare minimum. While this hotel does allow pets it only has a very small area for them to do their business. The first few days we were there that spot was overflowing with pet feces to the point that our dogs wouldn't go there. We had to haul our dogs down to the beach every time they needed to #2. There were no rugs or mats in the hotel entry way from the beach so we had trouble keeping sand out of our hotel room. Also, the pool area is covered by webcams so if you're uncomfortable with strange people on the internet seeing you in a swimsuit, avoid this hotel. There was a group of kids staying in the room above us and it seemed like they were using the room as a bouncy house. The hotel staff didn't seem to be able to do anything to make them stop until we told a manger that we would be checking out.
Rooms are out dated. The towels are disgusting. Great location. Honestly go to the Hilton, it’s the same cost. Staff was super nice. Parking was easy. Pool area over crowded. Don’t stay in one of the rooms facing the pool unless you like noise.
SPI La Quinta
Excellent place to stay on South Padre Island. Great beach access. Very good breakfast for what hotels offer. Rooms are spacious and clean and have a small patio area so wet swimming clothes can be set out to dry.
Front Desk Staff
Jennifer & Keyla were very polite, helpful and accommodating to a requested needs. They were good about addressing us by our last name whenever they saw us throughout our (4) day stay. I highly recommend this resort for its quality and value.
The hotel is infested with roaches, after showering I grab a towel and out pops a roach. I almost slipped and fell. I called the main desk when they finally answered, I was able to move rooms but that was not any better because up pops more roaches. It disgusting, I was supposed to receive a call from management and never got that call. Highly disappointed, unsanitary, unclean and just plain disgusting.
