Traveled from San Antone to attend an 80th bday party in Victoria and decided to stay on the water in PL. we both have never been here before and we were pleasantly surprised by the service, friendliness and nice accommodations of this hotel. Our room overlooked PL Bay and we were right across the highway from Lighthouse Beach. It's a... More

We have stayed at many HI Express previously and been satisfied. This one is by far the best. Everything was excellent from the front desk assistance to the decor and cleanliness of the hotel. The breakfast room was bright and cheery and the food provided was ample with lots of choices. The young lady working there was delightful and aimed... More

Wow, by far one of the best reviews we have gotten. Of course, all reviews matter and we value each and every one, but to hear you feel we are "the best" really excites us. The location and decor is definitely different, but we want our service to exceed what is expected. The staff will be so happy to hear... More

Our room smelled wet and musty. Even with the air conditioning on it felt wet in the room. In the bottom floor elevator foyer it smelled strongly of mold. Breakfast biscuits were undercooked and still dough-like in the center, scrambled eggs were cold.

This hotel is really well located, the view was great, the rooms spotless and the decoration really cute. There is a beach on the other side of the highway but didn't go there. we enjoyed the pool at night. We would definitely stay there again.

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.

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

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
