We decided to take a vacation from our vacation and visit the beach during our stay in Hill Country Texas. It was a last minute decision but we were able to secure 2 rooms for 1 night at the Holiday Inn Express in Port Aransas. Our rooms did not have towels in them upon check in and this was at...

We've stayed here several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it. It's relatively close to the beach (still have to drive), has a nice pool, and nice breakfast room. Unfortunately, this year when we got there only one of our rooms was clean even though it was past checkin time and for some reason, the cranky...

This hotel was the best. We stayed here our last night but believe me next year it will be the only place we will stay. The rooms were very roomy and exceptionally clean.

I want to warn against this hotel! Our a/c went out the first night and they told us they couldn't do anything until morning. We wanted to switch rooms because we have 2 small children and it was miserable. The manager was late, and gave us an attitude when we told her that we wanted to switch rooms. She said...

We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced with the A/C unit in your hotel room. While our team was more than willing to move you to another room after the first night, I understand how this would inconvenience your family during your vacation. Our team did replace the A/C unit with a brand-new unit along with a new thermostat...

We had other local choices but went with Holiday Inn Express because we knew what to expect. The hotel was clean and well decorated. Adequate breakfast. Just a 5 minute walk to the beach which was awesome because otherwise you have to pay for parking on the beach. The kids loved the pool.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The first night we had loud arguing neighbors but we didn't report it so I guess we can't complain! This hotel is 2 blocks from the beach which is convenient but we still drove because 2 blocks carrying chairs, umbrella, towels, etc...can get tiring! The breakfast is not great but it's free so what...

First I had another room reserved at another place but that got all screwed up by their staff somehow. So I could only find an opening at the Holiday Inn Express on Port Aransas Island. They charged me $279 per night for a "suite" which was really no bigger than a regular room at another hotel (that was cheaper by...

Mr. Nations, We understand you already were frustrated before arriving to our hotel as you mentioned you had issues with your previous hotel provider. Availability is limited in Port Aransas as this is peak season in a destination area. The high demand accounts for the city-wide room rates. Actually, our hotel is priced more economically than many lodging providers in...

My parents lived on the island for many years, this being my first trip back since they moved. I like the sand and humidity when I am on the beach, but not in my room when I am going to sleep. That is why I was very pleased with Holiday Inn, the bedrooms were clean and extremely comfortable!!!
