couple quick get away

the hotel was 3-4min walking distance from beach breakfast was satisfying but if you want to get good dibs you have to wake up early! the rooms were clean and AC worked perfectly. Ive stayed at a Condo before in south padre and I'm actually glad we went with the hotel is was just about the same price.

Wedding in SPI

Very convenient to family and wedding. Our first trip to South Padre Island, we enjoyed the sights and found some great restaurants. Some places were shut down because it was not a busy time of the year. The weather was horrible except for the wedding day which was perfect, warm and sunny!

It was a long walk to most restaurants and shopping but we had a rental car. There is a free bus service on the Island and over to Port Isabella.

Nice hotel

The hotel appears new or recently updated. Our suite was spacious. The room was fairly "noise" free. Housekeeping was thorough. Staff were accommodating: especially those who worked in the breakfast area. The weather was rather cool when we visited so we did not use the pool or hot tub. We would stay again!

Best vacation in a long time!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn! We usually always stay at Holiday Inn's but this location is now our favorite! Hotel and rooms very clean and comfortable. Staff definitely pays attention to detail. Staff was always smiling, friendly and helpful. We spent a week here and didn't want to leave! Hotel within walking distance to beach. We ate the generous and tasty complimentary breakfast every morning which saved us alot of money. Definitely worth the money!!

Use the concierge to get good deals on horseback riding, fishing trips, snorkeling trips and eco tours with fireworks! I also recommend you have a massage at the Massage & Healing Arts Center.

Family weekend

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was always nice and willing to help. The only thing I didn't like was that couldn't extend my check out time.
