I had a business trip for a couple of days in Brownsville but wanted to stay on the island if I could. My customer recommended this place. I travel a lot and usually stay at a Hilton or Marriot for the points. The place seemed newly renovated. It was very clean. The bed was comfortable. I would stay here again!... More

A bit more expensive than La Quinta and it doesn't have a view or a nice pool. You have to walk through a neighborhood to get to the beach. Staff is great, breakfast is delicious and the rims are clean and very comfortable.

Upon staying at this location I must say I have left with mix feelings. Most definitely, I can say I did not leave with a "wow" factor. The rooms are average if not a bit outdated, the pool is small, and the breakfast was just as much awful as dirty. However, the employees that work there are wonderful people with... More

We use Holiday Inn Express because of their attitude of going the extra mile to make you happy. I always get my quiet room, great breakfast, and fast service. I plan to continue staying at their facilities.

I changed to the holiday Express 20 miles the next timebi went. I called after I took a shower and asked to have someone check because I had no water pressure she was nice and said...no one else had complained...really?? No offer to check. The pillows and hot tea was the best thing.

We came to celebrate our honeymoon on the island. We arrived a little early and our room was not quite ready, but Lucky for us the MOD Alma was there. When I signed the paperwork, (I made the common mistake of a newlywed) I singed my maiden name. My husband of course make comment about it. That's when we met... More

All of the places on the beach were either too pricey or booked solid, so we decided to give Holiday Inn a chance once again and we weren't disappointed! We were greeted by a very courteous, professional staff. We immediately asked for a discount off the SALE PRICE and we GOT IT! We were happy to find the rooms were... More

This is a very nice/well maintained property that is in a great location (on the Island) and is very close to the beach (2-3 blocks walking). However, the key factor for me when rating this property excellent is their customer service. Alma, the general manager, is superb. When a mixup in our room expectations occurred, Alma immediately addressed the issue... More

My reservation was mixed up, but I did use Booking.com. Room was decently clean, but a bit under par from the ususual Holiday Inn Expresses I've experiened. I suppose that is due to the high traffic through this hotel. Breakfast was blah & under par comparitively speaking. The General Manager on site at the moment was pleasant & very accomodating...
