2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for Thanksgiving Holiday and our room was on the first floor. Well the first and second night were ok, until we started seeing the cockroaches on the third night.I didnt sleep well after that and my daughter got bit by one! I told the front desk and it sounded like they had a bug problem before.They only refunded me 50.00 dollars for my stay.I felt they should have done better then that for our lack of sleep.All I have to say is that i wouldn't recommend this place and we will not be going back there.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize that your stay was not satisfactory. We take great pride in delivering excellent service and accommodations to our guest and it seems we did not live up to that during your stay. I have contacted our pest control company and they will be doing a thorough inspection of the first floor to ensure these issues do not occur again. Please feel free to contact me via email at julie@zjzhospitality.com to further discuss your stay.

My sister and I enjoyed our stay while we were in the Port Aransas area for our other sister's 50th wedding anniversary. We appreciated the clean room and the friendly service. I appreciated the technical assistance in using the business office. Although we enjoyed the breakfast it was repeated every other morning.

Spent Friday & Saturday nights. Comfy, clean, quiet & friendly -- absolutely no complaints. Nice outdoor pool area. Saw people in fitness center. Close to the beach. Good breakfast with wide assortment. Will definitely stay there when visiting Port A.

Room Tip: Convenient handicap access on 1st floor. Good parking. Helpful staff.

Really enjoyed great friendly happy staff, clean room, good pool and spa. I thought the place
was a year old at most. Turned out it was seven years old. Breakfast was good. Beach was
a little walk, but you could drive and park at the beach. Off season so hardly anyone around.

Room Tip: Construction on East side, didn't affect our room

The staff was very helpful with any question we had. The breakfast was very good and the lady working there was so nice. The room was clean and in good condition. No real complaints, but the walk to the beach was more like three blocks than the block and a half advertised. However, the walk was easy and you can drive right up to the beach in a few minutes if you are taking lots of stuff. Do be prepared to pay $12 for a parking permit for beach parking. The permit is good for the rest of the year, so if you go several times, as we did, it was well worth the money. If there isn't anyone selling them at the beach entrance area, the permits are available at any convenience store and one is located a few blocks from the hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for our family vacation and found the rooms to be very clean and kept up very nicely. The staff was one of the nicest and attentive groups that we have met! The hotel is 1 block from the beach which is AWESOME and they have a great pool and hottub area. The morning breakfest was one of the better ones that we have found and the food was hot and fresh. Overall it was a fantastic stay and we look forward to going back to Port A

Thank you for everything to the staff at Holiday Inn Port A

Great place to stay in Port A. The location is close to the beach,not too far from the charter fishing areas and it has a really pretty swimming pool area. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and it has a great breakfast!
