Bottom Line

Comfort Suites is in a convenient, central location for exploring South Padre Island attractions. The 74 rooms are spacious, and feature microwaves and mini-fridges, although some rooms (depending on the category) show wear and tear. This hotel does offer free breakfast and free Wi-Fi -- along with a big outdoor pool surrounded by tall palm trees -- but it isn't located on the beach and there is no fitness center. With tube TVs and tired decor in some rooms, this hotel is a bit dated, but varied room layouts can accommodate groups of different sizes.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Clean and modern rooms in a city setting

The Lobby at the Comfort Suites South Padre

The Comfort Suites South Padre Island lacks a beachside location, but it is convenient for reaching many local attractions. The hotel can be found tucked behind a McDonald's with a tricky access way many guests miss the first time around. The exterior is painted in orange tones, and this color scheme carries over into the interior. The scene here is a relaxed one, especially at the outdoor pool during the day. This budget hotel option is a five-minute walk away from the beach.

 Location

In the middle of South Padre Island’s hotel sprawl, though not directly on the beach

The Comfort Suites is located in the middle of South Padre Island's hotel sprawl, a few blocks from the beach in a residential area. It is close to local restaurants although a car is needed to get around. A McDonald's sits right out front of the hotel.

 Rooms

Spacious rooms at the Comfort Suites have a uniform color scheme of warm colors juxtaposed against dark wood furniture. There are no views to get excited about, although some rooms do offer small balconies. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are big, but the high humidity in this region can make rooms feel damp. The best rooms are the spacious Business King rooms, featuring new flat-screen TVs and a separate living room. None of the rooms have a full kitchen, but they do offer microwaves and mini-fridges. Some rooms still have old tube TVs and carpets are starting to show wear and tear.

 Features

Big swimming pool with Jacuzzi

The Comfort Suites isn't located directly on the beach, but it does offer a big swimming pool and Jacuzzi. There are plenty of lounge chairs surrounding the pool for guests that would rather sunbathe here than walk five minutes to the beach.

 Food

Free breakfast and McDonald’s on the doorstep

  • McDonald’s in front of hotel
