Let me start by saying the service was fantastic!! I didn't realize I would need a room so early in the day and ended up booking online at 9:00 am. I arrived at 9:30 am even though check-in was not until 3:00 pm to plead for a room. The clerk informed me that housekeeping had just started work and no... More

I will say right off the bat that the staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful, thus the rating. There were a few things that need some attention; the message light on the phones in the room blinked constantly even though there was no message. Fortunately, the light wasn't bright. We attempted to use the pool our first... More

We visited the Holiday Inn Express-Port Lavaca for an extended weekend in June. The hotel was very nice and had a perfect location right on the bay shore with a view of the causeway and the water.

Port Lavaca...who knew that this sweet oasis by the side of the bay could make a get away weekend so perfect. The spotless room on the third floor had a great view of the bay with pelicans, terns and gulls wheeling about for our entertainment.

The hotel and location are nice but the desk staff was exceptional. We could not have asked for better service. We had a room looking out on the water. The breakfast had lots of choices. The little gym was nice but the tv was located behind the exercise equipment.
