Couples - Most of our rooms are one-bedroom suites, perfect for couples. The Inn is a quaint hideaway and has a very private pool-barbeque-cabana area. Vacationing couples really enjoy swimming and relaxing by the pool, barbequing in the late afternoon and admiring the bay without the noise and crowds found at hotel pools on South Padre Island.

History - As the Valley's oldest seaside resort and hotel, persons interested in area history appreciate the large, captioned historic photgraphs in our lobby areas and rooms. The oldest lighthouse in Texas and the Post Isabel Historical Museums are just two blocks away. Hundreds of other historic sites in Brownsville and other Valley areas are minutes away.

Fishing - The Queen was built for fishing. Located on the Laguna Madre Bay, our guests can go bay fishing right in our backyard or launch their boat from our private boat ramp. Our guests also enjoy complimentary admission to the Port Isabel Fishing Pier just two blocks away. Our guests also appreciate discounts on deep-sea red snapper trips, bay fishing trips, dolphin watch and sunset cruises. And for the very serious fisherman, there are over 100 local private fishing charter guides providing bay fishing, fly fishing, and off-shore fishing.

Bird Watchers - The Rio Grande Valley has become a premiere desitnation for bird watchers and the Lower Laguna Madre area has become a mandatory stop for all serious bird watchers. Green Jay, Chachalaca, Altamiera Oriole, and Great Kiskadee are among the hundreds of species to be found here. Dozens of species of shoreline birds can be viewed right from our backyard! The Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge, Sabal Palm Grove Sanctuary, Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, and Bentson State Park are all located near by.

Golfers - When President Harding stayed here in 1920 he had to ride the Rio Grande Railway for the hour trip into Brownsville to play golf. He wouldn't have to any more. There are over a dozen courses within 30 miles and two of them are within minutes of the Queen. Our guests enjoy complimentary green fees at the Jim Paul Course, a challenging par three course located just down the street. The South Padre island Golf Club is also located just ten minutes away.

Executive Lodging - Our large suites with fully furnished kitchens and housekeeping services have made the Queen popular for business professionals from around the world. NAFTA, our proximity to Mexico, and Port Browsville bring hundreds of business executives and professionals to our area for extended stays. Naval architects from China, petroleum engineers from Scotland, importers from Germany, France and Asia, and countless other business visitors have found the Queen their home away from home.
