This is a very nice place to stay in South Padre Island. It isn't right on the beach, but the beach is only a short walk away - less than 5 minutes. We chose the hotel because the price was lower than those directly on the beach. The staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful. The room was neat, clean,...

We stayed two nights here last week and found it a nice, decent place to stay. Rooms were clean, pool area was nice. Employees were friendly and otherwise no problems. The hotel isn't right on the beach but it's just a short walk away. We chose this hotel because of the lower price and because it was a trusted chain...

Holiday Inn Express is a perfect place to stay in South Padre. It is comfortable, clean, economical and very well-situated. While it is not right on the beach, it is a quick 5 minute walk away. Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful (thank you, Alma Elroy for your info on the Schlitterbahn!). All you have to do is ask. We...

My family and I decided at the last minute to take a quick trip to South Padre Island. Holiday Inn Express had affordable prices for their rooms, so we booked one. When we arrived, the staff was friendly, and the rooms were clean. Vey comfortable stay, and the distance to the beach was short. Also, Holiday Inn Express in within...

I was automatically upgraded for free to a room with a Jacuzzi. I had a partial view of the ocean in between buildings. There is no unobstructed view of the gulf of Mexico as there are come buildings in the way. It is a short 5 minute walk to the beach. I enjoyed my room with its comfortable bed. The...

I cannot say enough about the outstanding service I received at the Holiday Inn Express on South Padre Island!! From the moment I arrived until the time I left (and beyond!!!)

Overall it was a good value. Rooms were nice and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. They need to work on their breakfast though. Eggs were horrible. Free parking and free paper every morning though.

For our first experience with the fabled South Padre Island culture we decided to splurge a bit on a Holiday Inn. Turns out they were very reasonable, especially for a resort destination! On January 20 and 21, 2014 we were charged less than $90/night for two queen beds, (pretty good beds!) with outdoor hot tub, heated outdoor pool, flat screen...

I read many hotel reviews for the area and chose Holiday Inn Express largely based on the great reviews I read. After my trip I feel this was an extremely sound decision! My vacation to South Padre island held many challenges. Primarily extremely cold fronts and storms in the area. The morning after my arrival, the power on this portion...

My wife and I had reservations for a week at an older resort at South Padre Island. To our dismay it was old, run down and not clean.
