Room had terrible smell along with dust and fuzz on furniture. Had air cleaner running in room. Asked for better room. It was little better but still smelled and was not clean. Stay at Holiday Inn Express often. Checked out to find different hotel.

After complaining many times over three days wifi never worked in flow. Water bottles (just two) are also not kept in the room. You have to... More

We stayed at this hotel with last minute reservations and were very impressed. We were not sure what to expect because when we were driving around town looking for the hotel, the other hotels in Harlingen looked a little on the shady side. The Holiday In Express looked great from the outside and inside, everything was very clean and welcoming.... More

I stayed at this hotel for four nights. I wasn't blown away by it and I wasn't upset until checkout. When I woke up on the morning of my check out, I itched all over. I examined my legs, arms, hands, and feet to discover red bumps everywhere. We're talking trails of red bumps everywhere. During my time in Harlingen,... More

They recently remodeled this hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious. The evening desk clerk has been here 12 years! Great person and great service. He also doubles as the bartender for happy hour. Two free drinks per evening in the breakfast area and they added a bar area. He will mix you up a perfect margarita after a hard... More

The staff here have always been great and the breakfast is very good, oh, and did I mention all the bacon I can eat. They are in the process of remodeling right now but it didn't cause any problems. The rooms have always been clean when I have stayed there.

The hotel has the same decor of any courtyard so it is reliable. Nearby there is a movie theater, wallgreens and some chain fast food restaurants. But the hotel offers a bistro which is very convenient. The pool is very small. There is no much shade so tons of sunblock is needed. There were doing some renovation but I didn't... More

This being my first business trip to the Rio Grande Valley, I needed a modern hotel at a decent price point in a safe location near the airport. The Holiday Inn Express exceeded my expectations. Not that it's an unusual property (after all, it's just a Holiday Inn Express), but the hotel did exceed my expectations. I came away impressed... More
