South Padre Island's newest and finest hotel, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, invites you to travel Mexico & Texas in ONE VACATION to South Padre. You'll experience the white sand beaches and crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As you enter our lobby, you will be immersed in tropical elegance. Check in will be a breeze as you and your family escape into our sea life - a 500 gallon aquarium. All our oversized rooms come with spectacular views of Laguna Madre Bay, Gulf of Mexico or our tropical poolside. If you're here for business, relax - we offer free wireless Internet in all public areas and high speed Internet access in every room as well as a complimentary full service business center. For the ultimate in convenience, all rooms have micro-fridges, coffee makers, dataport speaker phones and state-of-the art on demand movies/music and video games. Thanks to the latest technology, on demand movies can be paused/rewound so you'll never miss an important phone call. We are across the street from the Convention Center and close to championship golf, nightclubs, shopping centers and a variety of eateries. Visit Sea Turtle, Inc. or spend the day at Schlitterbahn Beach Water Park. The beach is just a short walk from your room where you can participate in deep sea fishing, horseback riding, parasailing, jet skiing or a local favorite - barbecuing on the beach. We are the perfect tropical getaway whether you're here for business or pleasure.

While the hotel is under construction, it’s open and worth a visit. It’s a 400 yard walk to the beach but based on the price it’s a great value. Quite rooms and a good breakfast is included. In room refrigerator.

This hotel is on the north end of the strip and, while not immediately on the beach, has easy access. It's about a 5 minute walk. At this time (December '18), the hotel is undergoing extensive renovation-- including demolition of the hot tub. The outdoor pool was very cold,

jetsly, I'm sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy your stay because of the ongoing renovations and the issues you had with our pool. What you described certainly isn't what we want for you. I've noted your feedback and shared this with the hotel. They will make sure that actions will be taken so this does not happen again. We would like to make it up to you, so when you visit the area again, I hope you give us another try. Thanks for choosing to stay with us! Regards, Joel A Case Manager IHGService

Hello shyhaila, My name is Anthony and I thank you for your recent stay with us and reviewing our property. I'm pleased to know you liked the breakfast selections we offer. On the other hand, I'm so sorry for the inconvenience you had due to the on-going construction in our lobby. I'm also sorry for the unexpected experience you had with the cleanliness of our elevator and the room you received. We work very hard to ensure our facilities and guest services are superior and strive to be the best hotel around. For this reason, we find your comments troubling. Nevertheless, I've noted down your comments and passed them over to our internal teams so they can check the areas that may need further/more attention. I have sent you a private message to obtain some additional details. Thank you for staying and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Anthony M Case Manager IHGService

So we arrived on a Friday night to stay for two nights while working the weekend at South Padre Island. Walking in the first thing we see is the foyer is under construction. Ok but they should have made that known when I booked a week ago. Anyway, we check in but there was no
