We couldn't find affordable accommodations with 6 separate beds in private homes/condos/etc. The Holiday Inn Express solved that problem with the queen 2-bedroom suites at very competitive prices in the off season ... plus a free delicious breakfast buffet. Several years ago we decided to make... More

Our third stay at this hotel. Consistantly great service and clean rooms. The free breakfast buffet is very good with something for the whole group to enjoy. Close to the beach and main street. Would recommend it to anyone going to Port Aransas.
