For years, we attempted to plan a "No Boys Allowed" trip to Port A. 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...

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.

We had the 2-room queen suites which are just perfect for our group of ladies who have been friends over 50 years dating back to elementary school. The complimentary breakfast is one of the best but what really makes it such fun is the happy, smiling face of the lady who keeps all of the food and drink items well...

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at the Holiday Inn in Port A. As always, our room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet before heading out to our Dolphin Encounter tour.

We stayed here as we had never stayed at a Holiday Inn or Express. Well it certainly was not worth the difference we paid versus another national chain hotel.
