For those of you looking at Corpus Christi hotels, don't be afraid to look at staying in Portland, TX. Although you are not right on the beach this hotel is in a great spot. Driving distance to several beaches is fast and convenient. You are also extremely close to Corpus attractions like the Lexington and Aquarium. The hotel's location in... More

This hotel has one KEY flaw, and that is the beds. I am on one right now, and I can say it is as soft as a coffee table. I just got here and this hotel has given me a bad impression of the corpus christi area in general, which is not nice because I have nowhere else to go... More

We arrived to Portland at 2pm and the hotel was kind enough to let us check in early. The room was super clean and the staff was very friendly. They provided a mini fridge which was not clean when we got there. The previous guests had left over breakfast in the fridge, that was a bit gross cleaning out, and... More

We needed a place to stay near Corpus Christi for 1 night and this HIE was a great place. Their customer service was friendly and helpful. We were not greeted as Platinum members as we are at most HI's. I have always enjoyed that extra personal touch. The rooms are large and tastefully done. Most of all the whole place... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night and was impressed by the size of the room. I had a king bed with a separate sitting area. What did not impress me as much was the ancient and extremely noisy A/C unit. I set it to automatic so it wouldn't run all the time, but it would wake me up... More

Pool was nice, rooms were big, breakfast was decent, lobby was nice and big, and the beds were comfortable. Just another holiday inn, if you can get it at a decent price I say do it, but for $138 I wouldn't. Don't have any major complaints, but not overly impressed.

I will be quite honest and say if you want a good deal, a clean , room, and good location between Corpus and Port Aransas this is great. The breakfasts were hot and well supplied. But my issue was with the desk service. On two different instances I had to call to ask for extra towels and then another time... More

The Holoday Inn Express was much nicer than I could have hoped for. After making our reservation, they easily accomodated an updated to a suite at the lsat minute. In addition to that, additional family members joined us, and they managed to get us on the same floor, right next to each other. The rooms were easily double the size... More

The room was larger than expected and very clean. We sure enjoyed our free breakfast. The staff made sure all tables were clean and would never let anything run out. The hotel itself is pretty small, but easy to find and seems brand new. Great value, would recommend!

I had a room at the end of the hall that was very large and clean. Hotel seems very new (faint paint smell in the stairways). Staff was friendly and informative when asking about restaurants and directions in the area. Breakfast was OK...standard HIE (Bacon, eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, cinnamon rolls). Fills you up for free! Only issue was the... More
