Not at all as described!

The first thing you notice upon opening the door at arrival is the overwhelming smell of mold and mildew. It was so bad that it made my son and I sick. We never took our clothes out of the suitcases but they absorbed the smell. The condo itself was very dirty. The floors were dirty and the chair even had sunflower seeds in it from previous guests. The walls were dirty as well. The balcony was covered in bird feces on both sides. We called the manager the day after arrival because we had arrived so late the night before. She was in a rush to get my husband off the phone and didn't hear all of his concerns. She contacted housekeeping who came and cleaned one spot of the wall. She said the smell was because the air had not been on in quite some time. That's it. No, I'm sorry you're unhappy or anything. The furniture is outdated and falling apart. The pillows are flat and useless. I feel bad for the owners of this unit and wonder if they know what disrepair it is in. As for the Inverness building the parking garage is dirty and poorly lite. Only one elevator works so it takes a long time to get an elevaotr when you need it. This was the absolute worst place we have ever stayed. If we had not pre-paid for the condo we would have not spent one night there. I do not recommend this unit at all!

Absolutely Amazing...

What an amazing stay. I can't imagine a more economical and convenient place to stay. If you are expecting 5 star accommodations you'll be disappointed but if you are looking for a clean, comfortable and cozy place to stay for your vacation to South Padre this unit is for you. Our family of four had enough room where we weren't feeling in each other's way. The pull out couches were okay for younger kids but I wouldn't want to be an older teenager or adult and have to sleep on them. The views from the super large patio (probably the best feature of the unit) were spectacular. It would have been nice to have a little better patio furniture (one lounge chair was cracking and would pinch every now and then) to lounge on since it was such an inviting place to sit, read, nap and take in the gorgeous views and feel the ocean breeze (I think the owners should just charge $50 more a week for the next year or two and invest that into some nice, comfortable patio furniture--would be well worth it). The keyless entry system worked perfectly and made coming and going so convenient not having to worry about a room key. Don't worry about being on the 9th floor, the elevators work great. Overall, if we ever go back to South Padre we know where we'll be staying.

What an awesome condo!

We just left this condo today after being there a week and we couldn't have ask for more. The condo location was PERFECT! The condo itself was very nice and had everything you needed to enjoy your time there. The furniture was very comfy and we slept like babies. The balcony was awesome! We would find ourselves waking up each morning in time to catch the amazing sunrises over the ocean. We could walk out the front door and watch the sunsets every evening over the bay. With just a quick ride down the elevator and a few steps, you were on the beach. Patricia, the manager, was a pleasure to work with. Thank you for an amazing vacation! We will be back!

Great Balcony

I want to review the condo, the island and the whole Inverness building but I will just review the condo because it was the best part of the 3. The condo is a nice 1 bedroom, the furniture was comfortable, the bed was VERY comfortable, I slept the best I have in awhile. The kitchen is fully stocked so you don't need to bring anything extra, they even provided the coffee filters for the coffee maker. The balcony is where you will find yourself most of the time though. You can relax on the balcony, take a nap (there are 2 lounge chairs there that aren't in the pictures) read a book, eat your lunch or dinner the whole time staring at, and listening to the waves. If you like S. Padre Island, then you will love this condo. It is a great price and your proximity to the beach is excellent.

Disappointed in condo

  • Submitted: Jun 20, 2012

I'm not sure about the accuracy of the other reviews but this unit is on the 9th floor, not 8th. This unit has a great location, right on the beach, great view, and a parking garage which was very nice.
The unit itself was not as expected. It was dirty, had an overpowering mildew smell (which caused us some health concerns), and was not well maintained. Ex. The blinds and refrigerator door were broken. The seal of the fridge was covered in mildew, the dishes were dirty and rusty, and everything was really dusty. The unit was covered with air fresheners to cover the bad smells. You can imagine what my allergies were like....
Due to the condition of the unit, the owner did move us to another unit in the complex on the 8th floor which was nice and allowed us to enjoy the remainder of our trip.
South Padre was great, but I wouldn't recommend this unit to anyone.
