We spent three nights here while visiting Port A recently. This is an awesome Hotel! clean, friendly, and a great bargain! They went above and beyond to be friendly and helpful while we were there. The breakfast was always good, and had a very friendly attendant there each morning. The rooms and facility are immaculate! We will definitely stay again...

The Holiday Inn Express is located not too far from the beach and not too far from town. Port Aransas has some neat condo resorts right on the beach meant for families. The Holiday Inn is right in town, but not a beach hotel. It has all the amenities of a national chain. Very comfortable beds, good service and onsite...

Cassie, Theron, Rick, and the rest of the staff went well beyond the call of duty to make sure my stay was memorable. I liked it so much, I kept extending my stay. I saw this professional crew handle many touchy situations, (including some crazy lady complaining about noise that was just in her head) with great care. I will...

Went in late on a Saturday afternoon. The staff was very helpful in cleaning a room for us to use. The bathrooms near the pool were dirty. The room was very clean...great pillows. The room we were in had a cute alcove with bunkbeds and a separate t.v. There was a tub, so the room would be good for kids.

Stay during the off season and the staff was great and nice. Even met some foreigners in the lobby, made the initial check in fun. Room was very clean and quiet. TIP, sign up for IHG rewards and earn points cause I'd go back, why not. Pool outside, free breakfast and walking distance to the beach. Scratch the resort scene!

From the time I stepped into the building, the young lady in the front was very friendly and welcoming! Hotel is very clean and comfortable as well as close to the beach!

We had a perfect stay in nice peaceful place with beach city environment. The hotel is located nicely towards north of Padre away from hustle bustle of city making it ideal for peaceful vacation. We had a three night stay. Everything went well. I would like to give 5 star. But the jacuzzi was not working, it was under maintenance....

This was the first time we stayed on the island in 20 years. We are glad we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. It was a great stay! Just 5 blocks from the beach. Very nice room and awesome pool & hot tub! Excellent breakfast!
