“We really enjoyed our stay at this very nice Holiday Inn Express.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The staff was very helpful with any question we had. The breakfast was very good and the lady working there was so nice. The room was clean and in good condition. No real complaints, but the walk to the beach was more like three blocks than the block and a half advertised. However, the walk was easy and you can drive right up to the beach in a few minutes if you are taking lots of stuff. Do be prepared to pay $12 for a parking permit for beach parking. The permit is good for the rest of the year, so if you go several times, as we did, it was well worth the money. If there isn't anyone selling them at the beach entrance area, the permits are available at any convenience store and one is located a few blocks from the hotel.

We stayed at the hotel for our family vacation and found the rooms to be very clean and kept up very nicely. The staff was one of the nicest and attentive groups that we have met! The hotel is 1 block from the beach which is AWESOME and they have a great pool and hottub area. The morning breakfest was one of the better ones that we have found and the food was hot and fresh. Overall it was a fantastic stay and we look forward to going back to Port A

Thank you for everything to the staff at Holiday Inn Port A

Great place to stay in Port A. The location is close to the beach,not too far from the charter fishing areas and it has a really pretty swimming pool area. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and it has a great breakfast!

We stayed 3 nights (Thur-Sat). Very clean and well maintained facilities. More than I would have expected from an HI Express. The bed was comfortable, no issues with any of the room amenities, everything was clean and in excellent condition. The wi-fi was a bit spotty at times and a bit slow but worked well most of the time. The pool was clean, did not swim but used the spa. There is an exercise room but it's small and sparsely furnished - no weight training machines only cardio. The beach is within walking distance but since you can drive on the beach it would be more convenient to drive the car in order to car your stuff if you plan to do anything other than just go for a walk. Ate the full breakfast (buffet) provided with the room only once, the other days we ate at restaurants in Port A. The HIEx breakfast was pretty decent for a buffet, nothing special. The staff was courteous, always with a greeting on arrival and well wishes on departure each time we entered or left the facility. Would not hesitate to recommend HI Express to others or to stay there again in the future.

I came down from CO for a relaxing beach vacation. All the excellent reviews held true. No need to reiterate. The pancake machine at the breakfast buffet was cool, like a machine from the Jetsons cartoon. The pool was great, and required strict keycard access. This was nice, because we have stayed at other hotels in South Padre where there were a lot of people and families "poaching" the facilities. Not here though. Port A is Nice quit town in September. The beach was well maintained by the city. Very comfortable room. Will definitely come back.

Room Tip: I requested a top floor room for what its worth.

For years, we attempted to plan a "No Boys Allowed" trip to Port A. We couldn't find affordable accommodations with 6 separate beds in private homes/condos/etc. The Holiday Inn Express solved that problem with the queen 2-bedroom suites at very competitive prices in the off season ... plus a free delicious breakfast buffet. Several years ago we decided to make this our annual retreat and our visit this past weekend did not disappoint. High 5's to May, Ashley, Amanda and those cheerful ladies staffing the buffet area who managed to smile, hum and chat while keeping the food and drinks well stocked during even the busiest times. Beds are super comfortable, bath is spotlessly clean, really attractive landscaping and flowers in the beds. Beach is just a short walk ... we had FUN!

Room Tip: We've stayed on all floors and find all to be quiet. This hotel is very well managed and nicely...
