“Homely feeling”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

For a Holiday Inn Express this place was better than normal
The staff was very friendly and I was greeted in a pleasant manner by them all.
I was there for a week and a half and every thing went smoothly.
The breakfast is the standard fare and the beigles could be cut better.
The room had plenty of sockets and also a LAN line which helped improve the internet when the signal fades as it always does.
The room had a reasonable fridge and a microwave with a separate sink which was reasonably usable.
There were plenty of drawers but the cupboard was open, I do prefer a door!

I spent 5 wonderful nights here. The staff is friendly and professional. The rooms are laid out well. Spacious, with a separate dining nook that has a fridge, microwave, sink, and cupboard with some basic utensils. The bathroom was clean and modern, for that matter the whole room was clean clean clean! The Wifi was solid and all the TV channels were HD. It was a fabulous stay. I love the location. My room had a lovely view of the waterway. The hotel is set back from the Expressway so that noise is not an issue. Granted, there is a TINY bit of wear to the hotel, but compared to the regular Holiday Inn where I also stayed on this trip (which is supposedly a 3 star hotel) this will be my first and only choice from now on.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the waterway- it's charming!

This was the best Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed at! The hotel was beautifully decorated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My Mom had a handicap sticker, the manager on duty let us park under the covered pavillion outside the front door. The pool was beautiful, but kind of a bit crowded. There was also an outside hot tub. In back of the hotel was a resacca,(a little lake area). Landcsaping was beautiful. They have a workout room, a computer room. Wifi is available. Mine worked great! They are in walking distance to the best Denny's I have ever eaten at. We had a special room with a hot tub in the room. There was a big screen tv. The beds and pull out couch were comfortable. The best part of my stay was the hot breakfast! I expected milk and cereal, or maybe donuts. This is a hot breakfast, including eggs, bacon, biscuits, and toast, etc. The lady managing the breakfast was very efficient, and provided great service. I will definantly come back to this hotel, the next time I stay in Brownsville.

Room Tip: Room 215 has a big jacuzzi hot tub in it! You can watch tv while your in the hot tub!

We stayed here for a few days. We arrived earlier than the check in time and the room was ready. The room was clean and nice for the price. Everything was close by as far as entertainment and eating pleasures go. The only down side was the complimentary breakfast. It was not what we expected. No wonder everyone passed on it. Over all we would stay here again in the future. If the complimentary breakfast was to change this would be an awesome stay for the price. The staff was friendly too.

ALma and Her Staff were very friendly and cooperative. They assisted with the rearrangement of the conference room with more tables and chairs without any hesitation.

The Kitchen Staff were friendly and the food was constantly refreshed with hot foods and coffee.

On Friday morning, there was an additional group at the hotel. Staff added tables and chairs to ensure that everyone had enough room and food for breakfast. There was no delay.

GREAT JOB!!!

This Inn was very clean and relaxing. The room was comfortable and quiet. Everyone was very cheerful, friendly and kind. The view from the room and breakfast area was great! We drank coffee and ate with a view of the water and of course ducks and birds! The breakfast had a lot to chose from and the attendant was very helpful. We would stay here again.

Nice clean place and a really nice relaxing pool area. Breakfast was a nice selection, good coffee. Beds were comfortable .it was close to the airport so that was a big help.
The view out front of the river was great, and so was watching the ducks. Bar next door set us up a place for all eight of us to watch a basketball game. Very friendly
