My wife and I stayed there over the 4th of July weekend. The hotel was close to the beach and short bike ride to the local dining and shopping. Our rooms were very large where we were able to store our bikes in the room with no problem. We asked for a late checkout which was 2:00 p.m. and they... More

I am very displeased with my hotel stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Port Aransas. I was impressed after reading all the reviews, but ended up being disappointed after our stay. In general the staff was friendly (especially the breakfast staff - they did a wonderful job) and they did have a nice pool area (especially for our small... More

Because of allergies in the Texas Hill Country, a friend and I decided to go to Port A and breath that nice fresh salt air. This was my 2nd visit to this hotel, and, again the staff was outstanding. May Sanders, the Mgr., introduced herself and could not have been nicer or more helpful. I regret losing the note with... More

We stayed here for a family trip. Me and my bf got our own room so I will start there. The bed and the pillows were so soft and comfortable. The shower was a good size and the it was verrrrry clean. The 3 woman that I saw working at the front desk were very nice and always helped us... More

This place was great! I actually picked it because of other Travel Advisor Reviews. It's only a block and a half away from the beach (which WASN'T bad as per another review). Parking pass is $12 at the STRIPES convenient store a block in the other direction which is a 24 hour convenient store. The hotel is at the edge... More

My husband and I checked into this hotel in April. When we went to our room the air conditioner was on full blast, 59 degrees. We could not get the heater to come on. After a call to the front desk and a runaround, the maintenance man arrived and could not get the heat on. We were moved to another... More

I was unable to get 3 days at Port Royal during Spring Break on short notice, so we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the first night. It is your typical Holiday Inn, clean with friendly staff, but not worth $215 per night (yes, I know it was spring break and I got it at the last minute). They... More

If you've stayed in one Holiday Inn Express, you've stayed in them all. That said a couple of notes specifically about this property: 1. The breakfast room TVs play Republican propaganda (i.e. Fox News) constantly and cannot be turned off. 2. The first floor rooms have curtains that don't fully close, limiting privacy. 3. Staff is more friendly than average.

Kudos to Ruchel Rodriguez, Guest Service Manager, and her staff! My traveling companion became ill during our stay. The housekeeping staff and Ms. Rodriguez went out of their way to help us to deal with this misfortune. The HEI is the closest chain hotel to the beach and one of the newer hotels in town. Breakfast was great, as always... More

Good stay. Liked the location close to the beach. Beds and pillows were good. Not much going on in the area while I was there. But good for relaxing which was the purpose of my stay. Would stay again if in this particular area.
