I stayed here with my family on a recent weekend get-away. Was really disappointed in terms of value - an extremely expensive basically a 1.5 star hotel (that's very much what you get). I found the reviews on this hotel to be biased (highly rated for no reason whatsoever). Also make no mistake this is not a beach hotel -... More

We stay here twice every year, and find the rooms, clean, well kept, well furnished and with plenty of room. The AC is excellent, which is needed with all the humidity. The front desk is responsive and friendly, and the beach is only 3 blocks away, easy walking distance. Our room has a small frig, and a microwave, the wireless... More

This hotel is nicely situated blocks from the beach, and is right across the street from a strip of restaurants as well. The hotel was pricier than most Holiday Inn Express locations, but you're paying for location. Our room was clean, check-in was easy, and we didn't have any problems with noise. The only complaint I have is that there... More

My family of four stayed at the Holiday Inn in mid July for 3 days in a double queen suite with a sleeper sofa. The room was large and spacious. My son slept comfortably on the sleeper sofa. The beds were very soft and comfortable. The room was very clean. Housekeeping cleaned our room daily which was nice. The swimming... More

My family and I had to give away our room reservations to a friend after my father had quadruple bypass, I called to see if the manager would honor the original room rate at a different date. She refused to do so. It was very dissapointing. Money over compassion.

We had a great experience. Breakfast was great had several breakfast items to choose from. The only thing is the pool area was always full. Parking was never full. The front desk was always helpful. We will be staying here again.

Nice inside and out. Pool/hot tub area really nice. The mattress were almost equal to sleeping on the floor. I'm not old nor pregnant and I had to drive 30 minutes to Walmart in Corpus to purchase mattress toppers. Beds did not come with comforters, just thin blankets. Pillows were good.

This is a very clean, well managed hotel close to the beach in Port Aransas. From reservations to check out everything went smoothly. The rooms are very comfortable (especially the bed) and equipped with a mini fridge and a microwave. The complementary breakfast was pretty good and included bacon or sausage (I'm a meat lover). The pool was very nice... More
