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.

Everything was great, from the parking, to the greetings, to the rooms, to the breakfast, to the greetings at checkin/out. The staff was very friendly and made me feel welcome. Very enjoyable 4 nite stay.

Stay here for 3 nights for business. The check in was appropriate, the room was clean and nice, the bed was comfortable. Breakfast is OK like most of hotel breakfast, nothing special. The property is close to restaurant, movie theater, and grocery store. Also there is a mall nearby. The down side is when using the internet connection, you only... More
