I like Holiday Inns it, is one of my first choices in hotels. The hotel was clean and the room was clean. Our room had a musty smell, but it had been raining for about a month there so maybe that was the reason. The lighting in the room was terrible hard to put on makeup. Very noisy toilet. Our... More

I'm here all week and didn't realize no refrigerator. I travel a lot and it's been probably at least 100 visits at various hotels since one without a refrig or microwave. I guess I will have to go back to more closely reading the fine print

The staff is GREAT. They go up & beyond to make your stay great! The restaurant has an awesome breakfast!! We ate dinner there several times & it was delicious. The rooms are nice & comfy. But the bathrooms are small. We have stayed here MANY times because it's so close to the Medical Center of Southeast Texas where our... More

This is by far the best Holiday Inn Express that I have ever stayed in. This hotel definitely has its act together. We were greeted warmly by all staff. The place was spotless and spacious. Felt very comfortable in every way. Just a little bonus is that a large general store is conveniently located just around the corner.

We have stayed in a few places in Port Arthur, this hotel in my opinion is far better than the others. It is new and in a perfect location with friendly staff. You can walk to the mall of take a one minute ride to many restaurants and stores.

Located strategically near several restaurants and major road. Staff is friendly but I killed 2 roaches in my room. Unacceptable to a Holiday Inn and knowing that next to their location are several other hotel options. I saw some other guests comments at trip advisor and they had the same problem I had.

After reading the reviews here I expected a nice stay. The hotel is convenient to restaurants, major highways and shopping venues. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. Issue #1 were the front desk clerk was not very friendly at all. I got the impression she doesn't like her job very much. I wanted to inquire about restaurants in... More

This hotel is conveniently located to the restaurants and shopping. Easy access to the highway. The staff was friendly and helpful. If I am ever through this area again I would probably choose this location again.
