Overall it was a good value. Rooms were nice and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. They need to work on their breakfast though. Eggs were horrible. Free parking and free paper every morning though.

For our first experience with the fabled South Padre Island culture we decided to splurge a bit on a Holiday Inn. Turns out they were very reasonable, especially for a resort destination! On January 20 and 21, 2014 we were charged less than $90/night for two queen beds, (pretty good beds!) with outdoor hot tub, heated outdoor pool, flat screen... More

I read many hotel reviews for the area and chose Holiday Inn Express largely based on the great reviews I read. After my trip I feel this was an extremely sound decision! My vacation to South Padre island held many challenges. Primarily extremely cold fronts and storms in the area. The morning after my arrival, the power on this portion... More

My wife and I had reservations for a week at an older resort at South Padre Island. To our dismay it was old, run down and not clean. Consequently, we checked out and searched for another place to stay on the island. Based on positive feedback, we contacted the Holiday Inn at South Padre island. We were met at the... More

The rooms are large and very comfortable. The bedding is all super nice, soft and comfortable. Our rate in November also made this an exceptional value. Breakfast,nice pool, hot tub. The Wave shuttle (free shuttle running along the island and airport) stops right in from every 20 or so minutes, making it much more enjoyable.

The staff is very friendly. Alma runs a tight ship of cleanliness and very friendly staff. This was the second time we have held a meeting there with a reserved block of rooms. Both meetings were about 3 days long for 15-20 participants. Other than having to shut one of the doors to the meeting room because of the noise... More

The hotel was clean. I was disappointed by not having a view of the Gulf. We came down there for my sister to see the ocean for the first time in her life before she passes away. There is condos in the back of the property restricting the view of the Gulf.

To be this close to the beach (a quick half block walk) and this clean is nothing short of incredible. We arrived on a very busy weekend (Sand Castle Days) and stayed after the crowd went home. Fantastically clean. Large rooms. An enormous pool. Close to Clayton's, so it's easy to walk over via the beach and enjoy a cool... More

This hotel is located on the NE end of the island, which is fine because the free island transportation is so accommodating. No more than 5 mins walk to the beach. Hôtel is very clean and staff very helpful and polite. Would stay again.
