Reviewed October 13, 2013

Absolute the best stay we've ever had in all over the country. Super friendly and efficient from Bendi, the General Manager, down to all support staff. Very clean, good location and a great (free) continental breakfast. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will stay here again next year. Ken and Jeannette Wells

Stayed 5 nights and was treated very well. Staff is friendly and efficient. Some areas under furniture needed vacuumed a little better @ check in but was done during our stay. Different items for breakfast each day. Would definitely stay here again.

This is an OK hotel with a great position near the beach.
It's walking distance - but grab the car - public parking ( 5 USD per day ) is available.
The hotel is not above the average Holiday Inn Express, and the pricetag is a
bit high considered it's just like the rest of 'em, as we payed app. 200 USD per night - and for that price I expect a bit more, but the fact that it's that close to the beach makes it OK to pay that price.
Good rooms, great breakfast (the cinnamon bun - I just love it ).
Service great, always at hand if needed.
No problems with parking, security etc.
But: The pool was green - and it looked like someone had dropped gallons of mountain dew in the pool, and when I asked the reception why this colour, they informed us that they was cleaning the pool.. But it looked like this for three days ?
We didn't use it, but again why use a pool when you're close to the beach ?
Apart from the pool-issue, this is a hotel that we could/would stay in if we get to Rockport again.

This hotel seems quite new and is well maintained. adequate car parking, friendly staff, and not too far from the beach. I would recommend this place to anyone and would certainly stay again. it is centrally located and there are many places to eat nearby.

Nice location in Rockport, close to the beach, restaurants, etc. My son forgot his Ipad in the hotel and the staff shipped it to my home. It looked like new facility, breakfast and rooms up to the standard expected from Holiday Inn. I would stay there again and I recommend to friends willing to visit Rockport.

first of all no parking had to park at near by hotel parking lot, didn't like that much worried about my car, correct me if I'm wrong but, doesn't the swimming pool water supposed to be crystal clear, this was green, so I don't think it is maintained, also my husband and i had to hurry if we wanted breakfast, we saw a couple looking for eggs and, it was 30 min before the cut off time, the host told them, they were out of eggs, and was not going to make any more, for a room that cost $200 a night please, they should have hunted down a chicken an got a egg, hire someone to clean the pool, oh yea, my mattress in my room was hard and lumpy it sucked. NOT WORTH THE MONEY STAY SOME WHERE ELSE.

Second year in a row here and they haven't disappointed. We love this place. It's very close to surrounding hots pots and restaurants. Walking distance from Rockport Beach,and about 30 minutes from the Port Aransas ferry crossing. Our hotel room was very clean and was furnished with a microwave and fridge that helped a lot. Breakfast was great and a great highlight to the morning, and the staff are just as friendly as can be. My family and I were very pleased with our stay. Thank you very much!

Room Tip: Ask for adjoining room if your traveling with family.
