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

My title sounds harsh, but it reflects the utlility of this property. The location of this Holiday Inn Express is ideal for folks from Houston or Corpus Christi traveling to the Valley the night before some event or other destination. I cannot imagine staying there for several days or for that location. What's to like? - location near US77 and... More

Decent room furnishings and size and better toiletry amenities than most HIE's, plus manager's reception Mon - Thursday. Room had a very moldy smell, although I admit I did not ask for a change since I guessed this being a high floor, the problem was throughout. Otherwise, would have rated higher.
