I travel to Mc Allen / Brownsville one to two times per month. I hav been staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, but due to the promotions for points at the Priority Club brands, I have moved my business. I like this location enough that I will continue to stay here. I was here for three nights on business.
Overall this Holiday Inn Express is at the top of its game. Breakfast and lobby area are nicer than most, staff is always attentive, breakfast is typical Holiday Inn Express (eggs, biscuts, bacon, omlettes, hard boiled eggs, yougard, breads, pasteries, juice, coffee.) The rooms are always nice, crisp, and clean. The workout room is acceptable, though nothing special.
They have a small evening reception week days, with popcorn, pretzles, wine, beer, and lemonade / tea.
The location is a centeral easy drive to most business activities in Mc Allenand is located in a small trucking / retail area. If you have a car, there is dining nearby, though without a car there is not much in walking distance other than the a BBQ joint and fast food. Lots of dining choices 2 miles west on 83.
The outdoor pool is average, (but looks out on a truck yard) and they do have a real business center, though they ran out of toner on the two printers while I was there.
The rooms are quiet, dark, and well appointed.
For its location in Pharr, I will stay here again.
