Any suggestions on which of these two choices is best of a December stay in Padre? Holiday Inn looks nicer and newer (and a little more resonable on price) while La Quinta appears to be almost right on the beach, as opposed to the Holiday Inn.
Right now I'm leaning to the HI. Looks like it is walking distance to the beach. Not very many reviews on the Holiday Inn (currently 2) while the La Quinta reviews (about 48) range from very good to average.
Any feedback especially recent stays by anyone at these locations would greatly be appreciated! Thanks.
