Even though there was plenty of renovation going on that did not disrupt our stay. Very clean rooms, with lots of space. We had a the room with two queens a third queen could have easily fit in the room. Pull out couch, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Breakfast in the morning. The bathroom was large with marble counter top.... More

Hello TexasZs! Thank you for the lovely review. We are excited that you enjoyed your stay in one of our newly renovated rooms! One of our best features is our location as well since we are within walking distance of many of the shops and restaurants. I do hope you tried the one across the street. It is amazing! More

Where do I start? I pulled up seemed like no cars, a few small signs said lobby closed go to back of building. I went to the back, a sign on fire door said enter here. The next sign said guest check in is in room 111. They were under construction to say the least! The lobby was torn apart,... More

The Holiday Inn Express is very nice. Complimentary newspapers (always a welcome touch) along with a good breakfast bar make for an enjoyable morning. The staff is great. However, I would avoid it until March 2016. They are undergoing a lot of renovation at present. The work starts early in the morning and can be disruptive to late sleepers.

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past. It does not have views of the beach, but it is close to town. Typically we have enjoyed our stays, but this one fell flat. We arrived late afternoon on Dec 26th with plans to stay 2 nights. Large rolls of carpet in the area outside the front door... More

My friends and I stayed here at the end of summer. It's walking distance from the beach, as well as to the main stretch of town where one can buy swim/fishing gear, as well as good seafood restaurants. Our room was clean, tidy, and was the right price. Some hotels have trim damage, or peeing wallpaper that often gets ignored,... More

The hotel was comfortable but the rooms were noisy. I could hear the people upstairs walking in their room, the room was not properly cleaned upon check in and was not cleaned the next day. The breakfast was good, free Wi-Fi, and walking distance to beach. If they can improve the quality of the noise level, overall I'd consider staying... More

Almost all lodging options my husband and have encountered in Port A have been condos. All seeming to have the usual worn tropical decor and wall-to-wall sand friendly tile flooring.
