Wanna Wanna Inn
Penny Hutchins had a dream 30 years ago to someday own a small motel on an Island overlooking the water. Penny’s dream came true on February 15th of this year when she became the new owner of Island Inn (On the Beach) and Wanna Wanna Beach Bar & Grill located at 5100 Gulf Blvd. Penny looked at several properties in Mexico and the United States, but in the end decided to develop her dream on our beautiful Island. Lucky for South Padre Island!

Originally from Raymondville, Penny taught Math and Physics at UT Pan Am in Edinburg for 10 years. She spent the next 15 as a realtor in Hidalgo County before moving on to commercial development in Houston and Austin.

In a short 3 weeks, Penny, with the help and support of her partner, Bob Bell, made great strides at Island Inn to get ready for Spring Break. Beautiful new tile floors have been put in all rooms along with colorful touches to the bathrooms and major painting has also been done. Penny stated it has been a fast and furious 3 weeks, but well worth every minute to see her dream finally come true.

Island Inn (On the Beach) has 23 rooms in the main motel, each with either a kitchenette or full kitchen. There are also 10 condos across the street. Each room in the main motel has a beautiful mural painted on one wall, and Penny hopes to eventually name each room based on the mural.

Welcome to South Padre Penny and Bob! We are truly excited you decided to share your dream with us.

Friends and family coming in for the weekend, or even longer? Call Penny at 761-7677 or check out her website at http://www.islandinnpadre.com.
