Great stay. Just stayed one night enroute to South Padre Island. I had traveled all day and was looking for a nice place to just rest and unwind. When checking in, the staff was very friendly and even laughed at my jokes. The room was clean and welcoming, and the bed was so comfortable I almost didn't want to get up once I laid down. Also love the fact that they have, and label, more than one type pillow, hard/soft. The location is close to many restaurants and fast food places, as well as fdrug and grocery stores. Have stayed here many times in the past and would recommend it highly.

We came to the Valley to visit our family over Thanksgiving. We previously had stayed at Hampton Inn, but thought we'd try a brand we had come to know and trust. Boy, were WE in for a big SURPRISE! There were rust stains in the sink and bathtub. The beds were NOT comfortable. The room smelled musty. The maids woke us each morning before 9 a.m. on a Holiday weekend. They ran out of some breakfast items before the end of breakfast. One of the nights we came back somewhat late, and there was a loud, barking dog in the room 2 doors down. After about an hour, and several complaints, the matter was taken care of. We would NEVER stay there again.

Everything was as expected from Holiday Inn, things were clean and staff was polite

Nice .. Close to south padre Island.. Comfortable beds .. Nice staff .. Clean rooms

Needed a place to stay for the night since we could not check in our resort in south padre island . Great price and located within minutes of the mall and right across the street from the movies that my kids enjoyed :-) + close to many restaurants

We had a wonderful stay here. Clean and comfy room, courteous and helpful staff. Good continental breakfast daily. Free USA Today daily during the week. Doesn't get any better!!!

was normal for a Holiday Inn Express Lovely staff helpers

I thought this hotel was very good. My only complaint is that the coffee at breakfast was just horrible. I drank it twice when I went down for the complimentary breakfast. Every cup tasted like 1/2 ounce of industrial cleaning fluid had been accidentally spilled into the cup. Why did I keep drinking it? Well, I gotta get that caffein.

good experience

The check-in process was bad. Our reservation was already pre-paid and the clerk had us waiting for about 15 minutes. We were the only ones checking in! Maybe it was the fact she was too busy on her personal cell phone and trying to check us in AT THE SAME TIME! Bathroom seem to be the only thing that had been updated. The bed sank right in the middle. Wounldn't stay there again unless everyone else was sold out.

Very good breakfast, friendly staff, and a computer available in lobby for free internet access to check e-mail etc. Room very clean and up to date. Nice, big flat-screen TV in room. Good security on grounds and in building. No pool, but all in all I'd recommend it

Good location,within walking distance of movie theatre and restaurants; airport shuttle was an added convenience; quiet and peaceful stay

It was very confortable, but in our last night a neighbor couple was so noisy they were shouting each other improperius words at 4:00 a.m.

Room had no ventilation which made it humid inside all night and day. Couldn't stand it.

We have previously stayed at this hotel on two prior occasions. The location is close to shopping center, staff are friendly and service is good all around.

We really enjoyed this hotel while visiting family. The pool was heated which was surprising in Harlingen, but then so was the cold weather. I was able to work out in the fitness room, go out in the 40-50 degree weather, take a dip in the pool, soak in the hot tub. Quite a December treat. The breakfast was very good, fresh, with a variety of options including fruit, yogurt, eggs, etc. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, and plan to stay there every time we visit Harlingen.

Hotel staff was great. Customer service was excellent. Room was very comforting.
