Padre Island National Seashore, Texas, USA

After 3 very fun days in San Antonio, we made the 2-hour drive down to Corpus Christi Texas so we could visit Padre Island National Seashore. The traffic leaving San Antonio was pretty heavy, but before we knew it we were out on the open road of Texas, actually it was Highway 37. The drive was pleasant and there were not a lot of cars on the road. One thing I really enjoy doing when traveling is driving on an open freeway in a place I have never visited before.

After driving about two hours, we arrived to our Hotel and stayed for the night. We were so stuffed from the late lunch we had a Lulu’s earlier with the 3 pound cinnamon roll that we weren’t hungry at all for dinner, so we watched TV and went to sleep.

Hotel Feature: Drury Plaza Hotel San Antonio Riverwalk

When traveling, your choice of hotel accommodations can potentially make or break your vacation, so our motto is to always choose wisely. This entails reading reviews on Expedia and Tripadvisor prior to booking. If the hotel does not have at least a 4 star or higher, we pass on it and move on to the next hotel. Although good reviews do not always guarantee that you will have a great visit too, it does radically increase the chances of having a good experience.

The Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk in San Antonio had several very good reviews, but did our hotel experience at Drury match up to the reviews and more importantly, did it match up to our expectations?
