Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites- South Padre Island
Ranked #11 of 32 Hotels in South Padre Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is a very clean comfortable hotel. Staff was awesome, we had a problem with an airline and had to fly into a different airport and our rental car company was not going to be open that late. Calling them at midnite, they said they would be there in 20 minutes. Then for some reason the rental car employee was there. So it was not an issue. Upon arriving the clerk recognized me and wished me better luck in the future. Room was very quiet and cozy, so the little rest we did get was good rest as we had to drive to the other airport to greet our bag.

We stayed at the Holiday Express for 3 nights over the New Year holiday. We found the hotel to be clean, with friendly staff - a special mention should go to the ever helpful maintenance staff who answered any problem we reported with facilities in our room within 10 minutes and to our embarrassment, even though the issues were down to user-operational-error (our incompetance) the staff were polite enough not to mock us...the free hot breakfast was a bonus and the selection was adequate. The swimming pool was clean and looked inviting, even though we did not venture in due to the weather. Parking was easily available, and we were easily able to park in an area where we could observe our vehicle from our room. Whilst the Internet was available free - it did seem a bit temperamental. We did have an issue with room security, where on our final day we realised the lock on the room door had malfunctioned and after cleaning the room had been left unlocked. One other ovsight, on our part, was booking a hotel without a bar over New Years Eve...we had to get supplies in from the nearby Ben's Liquor Store...
We had previously read reviews stating that this hotel was not on the beach - and thought that a 5 minute walk would be ok as we're British...turns out that walking though an area of Condo's isn't actually brilliant and we would also register this as a negative towards this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in early December. We traveled to SPI for a family get-together and stayed at this hotel because we had previously stayed here and found it to be a great value and very clean.
During all the family activities, the staff was very friendly and helpful in finding activities for everyone to enjoy. Among the 30 family members that stayed here, everyone would comment about how excellent the accommodations were.
Keep up the good work, we will be back. Excellent service, very clean, great decor and great breakfast!

My husband and I stayed here August 8 and 9, 2012. After running into all the other three hotel messes there in South Padre we were very glad to find a hotle that was Clean, had Honest managers.Even though the head manager was sick at home with the flu, when we had a question that couldn't be answered she talked with me on the phone, now that's pleasing your customers.This hotel saved South Padre reputation hotel wise for us and we had a lovely stay there and really enjoyed the beach. When we return this will be our choice of hotel to stay in! Thanks Hoilday inn for the save!

We stayed here only because of my husbands corporate discount thru his work and I can tell you we'll never stay here again, we had a HUGE roach in our bathroom, ppl stomping on the floor upstairs constantly, we were even told we couldn't have breakfast one morning because their pancake machine broke down and went over their 9:30 cutoff time... ridiculous.... the price was ONLY comparable with his discount, we won't be staying here again

I got a great deal on a suite (I use this word loosely and will explain later) for four nights over Thanksgiving--only about $100 a night--for my family of five. As reviews indicated, the location was a short walk from the beach, so no problem there. And I can't complain about the price. I can complain, however, about the fact that one of only two elevators was broken during our entire stay, so it took us a very long time to check out on Sunday. In addition, what HIE calls a suite is really just one large room. We had to turn the air all the way down to 65 to get the other end of the room cool enough, and the only tv was on the bedroom end of the room, which meant that when you were sitting on the couch you were a long way from the tv. I'm not a big fan of the HIE breakfast, but it was fine. Coffee is always too weak. Whoever slept on the pull-out couch had a rough night's sleep, as there was very little padding covering the springs.

The explain the title, my wife just returned from a 9 day 4000 mile driving trip from home to SPI and back. We decided to stay exclusively at Holiday Inn properties to accumulate club points.
Needles to say, we did not enjoy this property at all. First, I booked 3 rooms for us and family, called specifically to the hotel prior to arrival to make sure my brother inlaw could check in under his own name when he arrived first. Well the staff on duty completely botched this up, and would not let them check until we arrived. Secondly, There was some sort of church youth conference group staying at the hotel, thousands of pre pubescent, hormone enraged running the hotel day and night, impossible to relax. The breakfast, besides being overran with the above every morning was not even close to the standards of the other 7 HI properties we stayed at. The orange juice was sour one morning.
Finally. the water in the pool was terribly cold, it was 88 while we were there, but the pool was awful.
We chose this hotel because of reviews as well as our rewards account, but quite frankly if this is the best SPI has to offer, it is an island sorely lacking of any decent accomodations.
