We stayed 3 nights. The entire visit was great. Evette, Louisa, Valerie & Liz at the front desk, Ms. May and Ms. Mel for managers are all wonderful personable people. They greeted us each time we came or left to do things around Port A. Bethany in the breakfast area was a hoot. The housekeepers were polite and helpful whenever we needed an extra towel or another pillow. We had a Suite. It was perfect for the price. Several recommendations for places to eat lunch & dinner were a big hit. Would certainly advise anyone staying for overnight or several nights to use the Holiday Inn Express - Port Aransas. Don't let the website fool you, the beach is just three block walk, you don't see the water, but you are very close.
