Shark Reef Resort Motel & Cottages
Sharkreef not worth the price.
We felt it wasn't in the best of shape for the price. I realize they are still recovering from Harvey, but doesn't excuse everything. An example would be the inside of the bathroom door. It was clear the maids never go in and close the door to check behind it. The door was not only nasty from greasy hand prints but it was clear that a previous guest had left a small dog in there as the bottom and lower edge was scratched to shreds. And their cable was out and they said it wouldn't be restored until mid June.

Visit to Port Aransas
Room was clean, and clost to local stores and beaches. But the room need maintenance, the pipe in the face basin is shaking and is dismounted from the wall. The water in the shower run hot/cold when the neighboring room guests are using they shower. I think the value could have been more for the cost.

Nice recovery from the hurricane
Considering the recovery from the recent hurricane they’ve done a good job getting back open. Modest room but good for a couple guys going fishing!
