We had a change of plans for our last night in southern Texas. We were supposed to stay at the Casa De Palmas in McAllen. I had the stay booked on a certificate so the night would be free. But it was hot, we missed the beach and Daughter really wanted to surf again. Back to South Padre for us!!!!
We found a reasonable last minute night at the AAA rate at the Travelodge South Padre of $89. The Travelodge is two stories and an easment property on the beach. They have beach access through a little (and by little I mean VERY narrow) walkway. IF you meet someone with a cooler you need to back up…
The hotel also has a decent sized pool and hot tub for families. The pool was very busy during our stay so daughter did not swim very long.
The rooms had been updated even though the hotel appeared to be older.
We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The dedicated beach walkway across the parking lot made it easy to pop out to the beach at dusk. In under 3 minutes you were on the sand.
We are making plans to return to this hotel next summer. The location is perfect for our family and the price is fantastic for a “beach” hotel. I can walk 3 minutes to save $100 a night!
