We stayed here as we had never stayed at a Holiday Inn or Express. Well it certainly was not worth the difference we paid versus another national chain hotel. Included breakfast which was on par with other chains offering a breakfast. Had four issues, three of which the hotel could have attempted to address, but chose not to. 1. Water...

My wife and I stayed there a couple of weeks ago and realized I left a brand new shirt behind that was still in the bag from the cleaners. I called the hotel 2-3 hours after we left and talked with the front desk who informed me she was busy and would have to call back with the news I...

For 3 years straight we stayed at this hotel during spring break. Each year it was the same routine, so this year I called in January to book our reservation. Nothing was different, I told the girl taking the reservation we would be there for spring break again, we are military, and she gave me a military discount on the...

Pros: .3 miles to beach (I tracked it.) Clean rooms, comfortable beds, really nice saline pool. Friendly, helpful staff, very adequate breakfast with 2 attendants keeping int stocked and...

We decided to take a vacation from our vacation and visit the beach during our stay in Hill Country Texas. It was a last minute decision but we were able to secure 2 rooms for 1 night at the Holiday Inn Express in Port Aransas. Our rooms did not have towels in them upon check in and this was at...

We've stayed here several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it. It's relatively close to the beach (still have to drive), has a nice pool, and nice breakfast room.

I want to warn against this hotel! Our a/c went out the first night and they told us they couldn't do anything until morning. We wanted to switch rooms because we have 2 small children and it was miserable. The manager was late, and gave us an attitude when we told her that we wanted to switch rooms. She said...

We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced with the A/C unit in your hotel room. While our team was more than willing to move you to another room after the first night, I understand how this would inconvenience your family during your vacation.

We had other local choices but went with Holiday Inn Express because we knew what to expect. The hotel was clean and well decorated. Adequate breakfast. Just a 5 minute walk to the beach which was awesome because otherwise you have to pay for parking on the beach. The kids loved the pool.
