Belinda and Shannon (the breakfast ladies) were a joy! So cheerful, happy, and nice!
Brian at the front desk was very helpful and patient with our check in and we appreciate him so very much.
Our room was spacious and the channel selection was very good.
Maintenance is not up to par with the majority of the Holiday Inn Expresses we have stayed at. We had a cabinet door with a broken hinge. The Bathroom door was odd. It wouldn’t stay open, so we had to use a garbage can to prop it open. Also, the bathroom door won’t open all the way because it hits the room’s entry door. Our room didn’t have enough electrical outlets for modern technology.
For the first time in over 30 years of traveling, we had to file a grievance against an HIE. Our issue was with the failure to clean our room and housekeepers inventing circumstances to cover their butts. In addition, the management failed to take care of the situation.
It was also very difficult to get towels; for 2 days in a row I had to call down to the front desk for towels.
When pulling into the parking lot we had to stop and back our 13’6” high truck out into traffic because the power lines are VERY LOW.
We shared our room with a variety of bugs. There was a dead bug in the lobby for 2 days before I picked it up – ick!
The first impression we had of the hotel is that as we walked up to the front entry, we noticed garbage blowing around the parking lot and the front ashtray was overflowing. (It was left overflowing for 3 days.)
This is one hotel that I WILL NEVER STAY AT AGAIN! If business brings us back to Alice, TX, we’ll either find another hotel to stay at, or we’ll stay in Corpus Christi and make the daily commute.
