Two queen beds and a huge breakfast! Walking distance to the beach. Clean and well appointed with friendly staff. The beach was clean and not over crowded. We decided to stay an extra day! Sea turtle inc. is right across the street.

Holiday Inn Express is a budget friendly, yet clean and comfortable hotel. Upon arrival we were promptly greeted, our room was ready and it was handled professionally. Our room, a Jr.King Suite was clean and comfortable with a nice sitting area, table and chairs. The bathroom was large and clean.

We made the horrible mistake of booking a room here for our family over Spring Break - big mistake! This is definitely a crazy, college destination and the place was wild.

I love this hotel, and the view from the balcony was just awesome. We sat for hours watching the sunrise, and listening to the band downstairs on the patio. The weather was perfect for our trip. Will return next year for sure.

The location is perfect for us. It is a short walk to the beach. The Birding Center, Sea Turtle Inc , Laguna Madre Nature Trail are across the street. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast is served until noon on weekends so we're able to sleep in.

We stayed one night here visiting the beach. As soon as I walked in the terrible smell off mildew smacked me in the face! The lobby is beautiful, but the smell takes so much away from it.

When I first walked into the property, I was taken aback at the smell of mold/mildew. It's a bit overpowering, but being a beach property I wasn't too bothered about it. Check in was without issue.
