“Kids had a great time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2011

The hotel was new and the painting and decor were very nice and in line with the beach area we were in. We had a queen suite and liked the spacious set up of the room. We had requested a bay view but it seems to be first come first served and we were not first. The breakfast area was small, but well kept, and I can't say enough about the lady who ran the breakfast buffet. It was crowded and she kept the food coming and a smile on her face each morning. The floors needed vacuuming when we arrived in our room, but they did a better job of cleaning it the next day. The location is very close to Rockport beach, but you do have to drive there, it is not walkable. Overall, we were happy with our stay and our children had a great time.

Our family of five were at Rockport during the Fourth of July celebration.We stayed from 7/4-7/6/11.The hotel was very near to Rckport Beack Park which we enjoyed tremendously.It was also near to where fireworks were displayed.
Cons of the hotel:
The water pressure on the foruth floor where our room located, is extremely low.We could hardly get a good decent bath.The water literally trickles!!!!!
The suite room was located just outside the elevator and the ice machine,which means noise instead of quietness.Suite rooms in most other hotels were usually in the corner of the floor but not this one.
The elevator is extremely slow and noisy when the door is kept open for a longer time.This happens in the morning when eveyone tries to get to the breakfst room which is also very small for crowds.
The curtains do not close properly which allow light from the lampost directly outside the window on the fourth floor to penetrate to the room which means no sleep.

Newly opened so there are no negatives. New Holiday Inn Express properties are a cut above their competitors, & this hotel is no exception. Ask for an odd-numbered room on the 3rd floor & you will get a direct water view.

We really enjoyed our first trip to Rockport. The hotel was great, beach was clean and family friendly. Hotel was a short 5 minute drive to Rockport beach park. No true rooms with beach views but the price was right and the hospitality was appreciated. We plan to stay here next time we visit Rockport.

This is a fairly new hotel that is close to the Rockport Beach.

There was a very good, hot complimentary breakfast and I found the staff friendly and professional (a rarity in most south Texas hotels under four stars). The hotel was clean and well maintained to include the outdoor pool and fitness room.

Parking is a problem and the beds were too hard for my liking. I also felt that the price tag was too high for a pre-Memorial Day weekend. However, it was a nice stay at a nice hotel. No wreaths or wrecks – just average.

Room Tip: The top floor has a good view of the bay.

Impeccably clean. The staff were as helpful and friendly as could be. Brand new (or so it seemed) fresh decor, nice lobby and public areas. Small area to purchase snacks and food items. The beds were perfect, the room was spacious, well appointed and everything worked. I appreciate the wireless code working on the first attempt and staying on. It was quiet and restful at night. The pool is not prominent in the description or pictures because it's small and out back with the parking. But it was refreshing and clean! There were some local college age kids in the pool area that directed us to some good places to eat, and they were right! I was really pleased with the breakfast in the morning. Some of the best sausage gravy and biscuits I've had. Nice cheese omelets, sausage links and patties were very tasty. The lady running that part of the operation certainly knew her way around making you feel welcome and waited on. I would definitely stay here again and heartily recommend it. While checking in I told Div, the manager that based on two excellent reviews on Tripadvisor I had decided to try it. He said he hoped I could make it three excellent reviews . No problem Div, you've got a great place there!
I would offer that it can be pretty hard to spot from the main road, you need to be looking about a half block in from the street, but a call got us through to Sally and right back!

Room Tip: Ask!, they sure aim to please.

This past weekend I took a quick get-away to Rockport to photograph the wintering whooping cranes. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express which is across the street from the bay. The hotel seems very new. The accomodations were perfect...nice rooms, comfortable bed, good breakfast. I strongly recommend this hotel is you visiting the area. The rate was good as well.
