Great Hotel

We went to the Holiday Inn Express for Spring Break, they had the same rules the other hotels did, such as the wrist bands. It was a bit north of all the action though.

Far from beach and night life

This hotel had great service, was clean, comforable accomadations, quiet, and friendly staff. The down side of this hotel is it is a long ways from Coca-Cola beach and all the night life. You need to get a taxi in order to get to any of those places from the hotel. This hotel all together was not well suited for spring breakers.

Great location near the beach, like new!

This hotel was much better than other Holiday Inns we have stayed at. Good service, the staff even asked if the room was satisfactory after we had checked in. The pool is quite nice. The hotel is just a walk from the beach, though you're better off driving just a bit up the road to the less populated areas, and this hotel is definitely well situated for that. The free breakfast was surprisingly more than just the boring continental fare, they had cereal, yogurt, fruit, eggs etc., whatever you might want. Overall a great experience. We'd definitely stay there again when we go back!

Work stay

Did not receive the requested wake up call that I left with front desk. My room was located on the third floor, someone in the room above mine continously walked the length room at all hours of the night. The footsteps were loud enough to wake me repeatedly during the night. Very frustrating to hear all sounds from room above.

S Padre Trip

The pool was not open and when it was was dirty with roofing junk we did not use which was dissapointing. They were laying new carpeting and the smell from the carpet glue was bad. If we were allergic to that which a lot of people are we would of had to find another place to stay. The staff was friendly.

Very clean hotel

Our room was clean with very nice linens. We had to wait until afternoon to check in, but we just went to the beach. The lobby and continental breakfast were nice. The internet is free in the rooms. Staff was all friendly and helpful, all spoke good English.

There are many restaurants to choose from a short drive from the hotel. This hotel is one of the last ones on that end of the island.
