We loved this place! Highly recommend for families. The staff was terrific. Did run into one unfriendly housekeeping guy, but everyone else was very helpful and friendly. Great location - only a short, easy walk to the beach. Clean, spacious rooms. Comfy beds. The rooms were fairly quiet. I didn't hear people in the hallway. Since the rooms are suites,...

I'll start with the best part of the hotel...the location. It's a short walk from the beach, restaurants, and shops. It was really hot so we drove to anywhere farther than a few blocks away. If you were there during spring or fall you could probably walk to anywhere you wanted to go. The lobby and breakfast area of the...

My wife and I stayed there over the 4th of July weekend. The hotel was close to the beach and short bike ride to the local dining and shopping. Our rooms were very large where we were able to store our bikes in the room with no problem. We asked for a late checkout which was 2:00 p.m. and they...

I am very displeased with my hotel stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Port Aransas. I was impressed after reading all the reviews, but ended up being disappointed after our stay. In general the staff was friendly (especially the breakfast staff - they did a wonderful job) and they did have a nice pool area (especially for our small...

Because of allergies in the Texas Hill Country, a friend and I decided to go to Port A and breath that nice fresh salt air. This was my 2nd visit to this hotel, and, again the staff was outstanding. May Sanders, the Mgr., introduced herself and could not have been nicer or more helpful. I regret losing the note with...

We stayed here for a family trip. Me and my bf got our own room so I will start there. The bed and the pillows were so soft and comfortable. The shower was a good size and the it was verrrrry clean. The 3 woman that I saw working at the front desk were very nice and always helped us...

This place was great! I actually picked it because of other Travel Advisor Reviews. It's only a block and a half away from the beach (which WASN'T bad as per another review). Parking pass is $12 at the STRIPES convenient store a block in the other direction which is a 24 hour convenient store. The hotel is at the edge...

My husband and I checked into this hotel in April. When we went to our room the air conditioner was on full blast, 59 degrees. We could not get the heater to come on. After a call to the front desk and a runaround, the maintenance man arrived and could not get the heat on. We were moved to another...

I was unable to get 3 days at Port Royal during Spring Break on short notice, so we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the first night. It is your typical Holiday Inn, clean with friendly staff, but not worth $215 per night (yes, I know it was spring break and I got it at the last minute). They...

If you've stayed in one Holiday Inn Express, you've stayed in them all. That said a couple of notes specifically about this property: 1. The breakfast room TVs play Republican propaganda (i.e. Fox News) constantly and cannot be turned off. 2. The first floor rooms have curtains that don't fully close, limiting privacy. 3. Staff is more friendly than average.
