We wanted to stay for three days at the Port Aransas Holiday Inn Express, but the price for Saturday night was outrageous for a Holiday Inn Express. So Saturday night we stayed in Corpus for a more reasonable price. Then on Sunday night and Monday night, we had rooms for $98 and $97 which is more in line with what... More

Our room was clean and nice, as usual. The breakfast was the same things we have had there before, biscuits and gravy, either scrambled eggs or small omlets, bacon, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc, and very good coffee and juices, plus the really good muffins and cinnamon rolls. Everything is very fresh and the servers were very nice. The location is... More

This hotel is situated close to but not on the beach. You'd probably want to still drive the short distance there, where you can park. The hotel's pool is nice, and I'm sure my kids would have enjoyed it had they been with me. Breakfast was OK - all the usual fare for an economy chain and free of course.... More

We stay here for the SandFest almost every year. Usually there are at least a few things, especially concerning check-in and check-out that make me wish there was another good hotel in the area.

Stayed only 1 night but made friends with a couple of big cockroaches. Plenty of heat... The thermostat wouldn't shut off had to have them shut it off at the breaker panel at midnight so we didn't bake. No insulation between floors meant we got plenty close to the people up stairs. No hot water at the bathroom sink was... More
