The Holiday Inn Express is very nice. Complimentary newspapers (always a welcome touch) along with a good breakfast bar make for an enjoyable morning. The staff is great. However, I would avoid it until March 2016. They are undergoing a lot of renovation at present. The work starts early in the morning and can be disruptive to late sleepers.

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past. It does not have views of the beach, but it is close to town. Typically we have enjoyed our stays, but this one fell flat. We arrived late afternoon on Dec 26th with plans to stay 2 nights. Large rolls of carpet in the area outside the front door... More

Hi Txgirl55! I am so sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations this time around on your visit. We did have an issue with our Direct TV having some parts go out right before Christmas and were unable to get the parts in to get it up and running fully due to the holidays. I sincerely apologize... More

My friends and I stayed here at the end of summer. It's walking distance from the beach, as well as to the main stretch of town where one can buy swim/fishing gear, as well as good seafood restaurants. Our room was clean, tidy, and was the right price. Some hotels have trim damage, or peeing wallpaper that often gets ignored,... More

The hotel was comfortable but the rooms were noisy. I could hear the people upstairs walking in their room, the room was not properly cleaned upon check in and was not cleaned the next day. The breakfast was good, free Wi-Fi, and walking distance to beach. If they can improve the quality of the noise level, overall I'd consider staying... More

Almost all lodging options my husband and have encountered in Port A have been condos. All seeming to have the usual worn tropical decor and wall-to-wall sand friendly tile flooring. This is not a bad thing if you love cooking for yourself on a holiday, are comfortable with certain indoor humidity, and like being reminded in every corner that you're... More

This hotel is in a very good shape and the suite we had was excellent. Super friendly staff. Breakfast was as usual for this hotel chain but the breakfast room was far too cold.

We came to the Holiday Inn Express after the Sand Castle condominiums (dark and dingy) attempted a bait and switch rate on us to the tune of $ 25 more a night. We are so glad about that. We then stumbled upon this hidden gem! Our 3 day stay was great! The hotel is central to everything including the beach... More
