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.

Pool was opened to a bus full high school students who were out of control consuming things they should not have been in the pool area. Finally there were so many complaints they were forced to leave. Later, security closed the pool area and in doing so got verbally abusive with my children. I politely suggested they should be more... More

We enjoyed our stay here over spring break. The room was pricey, but clean and spacious. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful and well-staffed. It is close to the beach and restaurants.

This inn is very new and it's just one of two branded inn's on the island. The only reason I was there was I needed a place to spend the night because the nearby major city was sold out. They provided exactly what I needed but the price was disproportionately too much for what I got (the spring break effect).... More

My sister and I were going to the Whooping Crane Festival and booked this hotel, as I feel like they are usually the nicer hotels when you are staying in a smaller town and Holiday Inn Express seems to be pretty consistent.
