We stayed for three nights in a two-room suite. The hotel is a short walk (about a quarter of a mile) from the beach. Nice pool and hot tub. Service was good. Shower did not work very well. Breakfast was standard for Holiday Inn Express. Windows don't open. I didn't see anything better in Port A and would stay there... More

Stay here, not at the 1980's condo's with shag carpeting. You are next to the beach, it's clean, quiet, and has great breakfast and pool area.

Pool area was really nice, peacfull and pretty, well laid out. close to beach and easy to find, one of the better hotels in Port A. port A is lovely, less touristy than Courpus Christi which is horrendous. The Beach at Port A is fantastic, the sea was toasty warm, the beach is huge and spotless

We selected Holiday Inn Express even tho most of your advisors chose the Best Western based on previous stays. We were extremely disappointed that not only were we several blocks from the beach, we were unable to see it even from the 3rd floor. The first room we were shown had a view of the swimming pool fence at close... More

Dear Guest, Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay at our hotel. I am disappointed the location and views from the hotel were not presented to you correctly. While our hotel is only a couple of blocks from the beach, we do not have an ocean view. I am sorry that this adversely affected... More

This property is standard for a HIE. Very clean, large enough rooms, decent breakfast. There are a few surprises worth noting. First, if you go by the picture of the pool you will be disappointed. It is very small. I like an early morning swim. Unfortunatly, the pool does not open until 9. 00am. The breakfast is completely automated including... More

I write this from our room on our first night here. We got the kids suite (king bed plus bunk beds). I am wondering how they call this a suite. It's a regular room with a wall setup to split the bunk beds from the king bed. Oh, and the king Ed is definitely not a king bed, my feet... More

This hotel where we stayed four nights was perfect. Nice quiet rooms. Great pool....and hotel. Just a few minutes walking to the beach. Close to good restaurants. Did like Moby dick. And nice not to expensive shops. We really liked port Aransas to relax after driving three weeks in Texas.

Queen suite roomy, clean, yummy cinnamon rolls on continental breakfast. Great location walking distance to beach or rent a golf cart and cruise the beach and the town. First night we ate across the street at Shell's little pricey but great fresh sea food. Next night ate Pelican Landing... again great food surrounded by cute little shops. Our grandson LOVED...
