South Padre Island hotels are plentiful… Some are more expensive, some are cheaper, some are on the beach, and some are not.
And then there are condos too!
The point is, there are many options to choose from. Not all of them are equally good though.
To help you find a hotel in South Padre Island that you will like, I have put together this list of our favorite South Padre Island hotels and condos.
South Padre Island Hotels
A great hotel in South Padre Island is the Holiday Inn Express. It isn’t on the beachfront, but you only have to walk a block or two to get to the beach.
As is usually the case with Holiday Inns, this hotel is clean, rooms are comfortable, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a great hot complimentary breakfast!
The hotel has a very nice pool, with a hot tub, and a barbecue grill available outdoors. Inside they have a fitness center and a business center (computers, fax) available for guests.
The Holiday Inn Express is slightly more expensive. Expect to pay around $150 per night during the summer months. Other than that, this is a great hotel!
If price was an issue for you with the Holiday Inn Express, it won’t be an issue with the Super 8 Motel. Here you can expect to pay around $100 per night during the summer. The lower price doesn’t say “bad hotel” though… it is still a great motel.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and some even have kitchenettes, which makes it very nice for families. They allow pets, but be aware that there is a fee for pets.
The Super 8 has a nice pool to help keep everyone cool. They also offer a free continental breakfast.
The Comfort Suites is another great South Padre Island hotel that is only a short walk from the beach.
Their rooms are comfortable and clean. The hotel has a very nice pool and hot tub if you want to swim, but don’t feel like going to the beach. Like many hotels these days, they provide free internet access.
It is located behind the McDonald’s on Padre Blvd. If you have kids, that’s good news! The Comfort Suites offers a free hot breakfast though.
South Padre Island Condos
If you’re looking for South Padre Island condos, check out Sea Vista Condos. This would be great for a larger family because the condos sleep around 6 people, something you don’t easily do in a hotel without booking two rooms.
Sea Vista’s condos have full kitchens, which makes it easier to keep hungry tummies full. The facility also has 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, and a tennis court.
Sea Vista is located right next to the beach and is also next to Schlitterbahn waterpark. That I like a lot!
The Suntide III Condominiums is another great choice in condos.
The Suntide has an indoor pool and hot tub, as well as an outdoor pool and hot tub. There is a barbecue picnic area and also a tennis and basketball court.
The condos all have full kitchens and they have 2-bedroom/2-bathroom and 3-bedroom/3-bathroom units available.
There is also a wooden walkway that leads directly onto the beach.
