After our stay in this hotel I have some mixed feelings.
Rooms are spacious and clean , free breakfast was also OK.
Nicely decorated lobby and helpful staff at the reception.
Swimming pool and hot tub were also good. It did not bother us to walk to the beach several minutes.
My major complain is that the ceiling isolation system of the hotel building is bad.
You can perfectly well hear the footsteps of the guests who stays at the upper floor.
Since our upper neighbors did not went to bed late , we could hear them
till 2 am. The room was cleaned well, however, several times they forgot to provide
bath towels , so I had to request them.

Very clean hotel and pool area - coridal, helpful, professional staff - the suites are very spacious, clean and comfortable! We will definitely stay there again! However, there is no direct access to the beach but there is a quick walk to the beach close by. Only downfall...no pets allowed.

My husband and I recently went on vacation to South Padre Island, and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites. We got excellent service while we stayed there. The hotel staff were very helpful. Our room was very clean. The hotel is conveniently located on the island off the main road.

Our only complaint, and it was not with the hotel itself, merely the location, was that the beach was about a minute walk or two from the hotel. This is not bad at all. But my husband and I had brought our own beach chairs and umbrellas, so the walk was far to lug all of our stuff there. However, if you don't mind driving like five minutes, there is an access to the beach (I think it is Beach Access 6) where you can drive onto the beach with your car. That is what we did and it was less crowded!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors on the south side have a pretty view of the bay!

Loved the staff and hotel room. Breakfast was pretty good, except for the powered eggs. Recommend the pancakes. The only minor issue I had was that I also had to conduct some business and the wireless access is terrible. It will connect and disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Finally I got a ethernet cable from the front desk and was able to finish my work. So bring your ethernet cable and enjoy your stay.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights. The hotel is very clean and modern. All of the rooms have a mini fridge which was great for storing cool drinks to take to the beach.

This Holiday Inn Express was a great home base for our summer vacation. It's located on the northern side of the island which means the beaches are less crowded.

Other unexpected perks:
1. delicious breakfast: cinnamon rolls, biscuits, eggs, yogurt, pancakes, cereal, and more
2. There's a concierge service (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) at the entrance of the hotel that will book activities for you (and they have huge discounts =)). Use them!
3. large pool with outdoor bathrooms

We will be back!

Thank you Holiday Inn Express!!!!!

Room Tip: The elevators tend to be pretty slow so I recommend a room on the first floor.

We stayed two nights. The hotel was clean, and modern. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. We had booked a room with a kitchenette, but found ours only had a mini fridge and microwave... Ok, not a deal breaker; We weren't going to cook. The front lobby and breakfast area was very nice and clean, but get there early! It gets crowded. The breakfast was good (especially the Cinnamon Rolls!). The pool is nice after a day on the beach to wash the grime off. The only thing I found disappointing was the proximity to the beach... It's not a private access. It's about two city blocks away down a street... But you can load your car and park nearby...OR, we went to Atwood Park where we could drive on the beach and sit near our car... So much easier than dragging stuff to and fro. We will stay here again.
