My daughter and I stayed here during an airport visit. It's a new facility, so everything is very clean. Our room on the 3rd floor did not face the bay, unfortunately, but that's not a huge loss as the bay isn't much to look at. The bed was comfortable and there was good water pressure in the shower. A good... More

Dear Agchris96, We are so happy to hear that you and your daughter enjoyed your stay. You may be surprised to know that our property just turned four years old last month, but we often hear that it looks so new. That's because not only does our staff pride themselves on making guests' stays memorable, we also pride ourselves on... More

This place is new, convenient and has the nicest staff there is from the front desk manager to the breakfast manager. It is a clean and welcoming place. I guess due to being on the bay it is built on a big man made hill and the first floor and lobby are like the 3rd floor. That is great for... More

Friendly staff, especially Terri at front desk. Patient with questions concerning road routes to take. Restaurant nearby is closed on Sunday, FYI. Enjoyed the hot tub and pool. You can bird from your room with the bay view! I'd stay again

It's a Holiday Inn Express, so it has the standard room layout, buffet breakfast, etc. It's also apparently brand new, so everything is in great order. (The rooms really are decorated in that striking shade of blue in the photo.) We found the air con intrusively loud and large - it's one of the units that is bolted under the... More

We will definitely take a look at the unit to make sure it is working properly. Ordinarily all one should hear is a low hum. We like our colors and actually, our property is not so new. We... More

A very nice bed, very reasonable , a lot of choices for breakfast , very good hot tub and pool area. If it had a window to open it would be 5 stars in my book. Good cable, fridge and microwave in room. Wifi spotty. Very nice night! Accommodating staff.

The hotel is the first thing you'll notice coming across the causeay on Hwy 35 into Port Lavaca. Pull up the ramp upon arrival for check-in and unloading as you need a hotel key to access the lower entry level doors. The hotel itself is extremely clean and all staff I came into contact with were very friendly. The room... More

Nicely decorated sea inspired color palate. Very clean. Breakfast typical and clean and hot. Staff very nice. A few things were in disrepair: Like roofing they will eventually have problems with and loose tiles on the bathroom floor. They were having issues with doors not reading keys so we changed rooms. No biggie. I paid for my stay in points... More

Lovely new well decorated hotel in a great location. Staff was very helpful. We enjoyed the chips and veggies and dip in the evening, and the breakfast was great (1st ever pancake machine for me!). It's right across the street from Lighthouse Beach, and close to several restaurants.
