Comfortable beds, quiet A/C kept us cool, spacious shower with high waterspout. Friendly staff. 3 floors - our room was on floor 3 and very quiet. You can walk 1.5 blocks to the beach, but I recommend renting a golf cart to make your life easier. Even on July 4th weekend, it was easy to get around. CVS and many... More

Me and my Best friend did a little Beach get away and we did enjoy our stay here but we felt it was very over priced for the stay. But all was well and the staff was nice and the pool was very refreshing and we slept very well and the rooms were very clean.

We visited Port A for a week and stayed in the one bedroom suite here. The hotel was very nice - we were allowed to check in early and when we discovered a small issue with our room they did not hesitate to get us quickly moved to a new room. The management and staff was very friendly. The free... More

It started from the moment we got to the hotel. The front desk manager joked with us about things which is fine, until he made racial jokes. That's fine with me but not very professional. Elevator did not work, and there are next to no electric outlets. While that isn't a super bad thing, when you get rained into the... More

We had a business meeting here and I required some assistance with set up. The management was very accommodating and helpful. But what blew my socks off was when one of the hotel staff (I've sadly forgotten her name) went WAY beyond the call of duty. She went home to loan us her OWN LCD projector when our colleague didn't... More

I have just checked in and want to let every one know that is looking at this hotel that the weekend rate I was charged was $345/night, and the hot tub is not working. They did give a $20/night credit for the hot tub inconvenience. The pool area was the main reason why I booked this hotel, and I must... More

Hello ciera1love, We recently had our hot tub refinished and due to delays with the contractor, it was out of service longer than expected. I am sorry to hear that this impacted your stay. We do hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you on your next trip to Port Aransas. More

I do not know why when a holiday rolls around these hotels charge the crap out of you? This hotel is nothing fancy, certainly not 300.00 a nite worth!! Oh well it is what it is I guess! It's a great location and the staff is very friendly! I might stay here again

Stayed here for three nights while on a work trip. The room was modern, clean, and quite a bit larger than I expected. The bedding was extremely soft and comfortable. Even though I had a room next to the elevator with a view of the main road, I was never awoken by outside noise. Front desk staff and breakfast staff... More

Staff extremely helpful and courteous, and very friendly. Parking was secure, I felt. Very accommodating with answering questions and enjoyed my room upgrade so much I stayed another night. Centrally located, better breakfast than usual for HOliday Inn Express. Quiet rooms, no problems.

Great place to stay close to the beach. Walking distance from many food and entertainment hot spots. Have never been disappointed. Free breakfast,workout and media area. Enjoy a day at the beach and then come back and relax in the colorfully lit pool and hot tub.
