Business trip. Hotel was a nice break from other noisy hotels I stayed at off 83 in McAllen/Harlingen. Had room towards back of hotel & it was very quiet. Typical HIG breakfast but its nice that they list what is on the b'fast menu in the elevator instead of having you try to guess what's inside the folded over omelets.... More

I stayed here for the week on business. The staff is rude. I had to beg for an ashtray and coffee creamer, only to be handed one package of powdered creamer. The key card had to be remade several times. The pool is nasty. The topper to all this was having to take a cold shower. When I called down... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Rio Grande City looked nice enough from the outside, and the front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The room was simply furnished, and it looked as if the property had not been updated in a while since the television was a tube-style. That didn't bother me much. Flat screens are nice, but what I...

Would not have stayed anywhere else in Rio Grande City or surrounding areas. Staff was great, rooms were clean, breakfast was very good. We got 4 rooms and all the rooms were great. When we had a noise issue with one of the neighbors, the manager and his staff didn't even hesitate to upgrade us to a different part of... More

We were just passing through and stayed at the holiday inn express. It was not the best one that I have stayed at but was decent. You probably should not stay at a lesser hotel in this area. I do not know if I would have felt safe in cheaper hotel due to all the problems that exist on the... More

An incredibly hospitable staff who were willing to help in any way! Each time I had any questions about the local area--they were there to assist. They allowed my husband to have late, late check-out when needed, and we were appreciative of that. When the TV was not functioning properly, the young lady allowed me to change rooms immediately.

We stayed here for an administrative seminar pertaining to the decline of the current economy in the Rio Grande Valley. I have to say, the hotel was magnificent. with the exception of dry tortillas and beans on our hotel room floor when we checked in. The front staff, although not educationally inclined, were friendly to a certain degree. It wasn't... More

A pleasant suprise. I stay in hotels quite often for work, and so I am accustom to problems here and there. This was not the case with this hotel. I stayed for almost a month here, and can't recall any problems. Check in was easy each week and check out a breeze as well. My room was extremely large and... More
