2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I planned this getaway with short time to make reservations. We were lucky to find this hotel. Great staff service and good location. There are many eating establishments nearby, a movie theater, and even a mall. The beach is only minutes away. We asked about a nearby catholic church for Sunday service and the front desk attendant looked one up for us. Great service, comfortable rooms, good value for your money, and great location.

Over all experience was good, I have only two complains. Stuff forgot to insert a sheet under comforter for one of two beds. Also, breakfast area is too small, so, many of guests need to take back the foods to own rooms.

This was a great location The staff where so helpful and polite. The Rooms where very clean and the beds where so comfortable. It came with a indoor pool which was great for kids just a little heavy on chlorine and the parking situation was a bit full though they worked with u on the that. Great stay

Everything was great. Except Parking. We had to park in the street.

This hotel was very clean and still smelt brand new! The beds were very comfortable and clean, the sheets were white and stain free! The continental breakfast was nice and hot and there was a healthy selection of food. Very nice staff and great location to the beach 5 min away or the city 5 min away. Will stay here again!

The hotel was nice and new. The location was great - very close to everything. They offered free continental breakfast which was nice, but they didn't offer a great variety. I would have liked an offering of waffles or pancakes. We booked this hotel in particular because of the newness, decor and the indoor pool. The indoor pool was lovely but it wasn't heated. There was also a hot tub. In the room, the a/c was very loud but after a while it worked out for our baby who was lulled to sleep by it. We thought this hotel included a dvd player, as most in the area do, but it didn't. They do offer free high speed wireless internet which was great. The speed was perfect, and not slow. If you are traveling on business, this place is perfect. If you are a family on vacation and don't plan on eating in the room, then the lack of table won't be a problem. The room also includes a fridge and microwave. We stayed in a double queen non-smoking. A suite probably would have been better for us. Overall, this room was great besides the dislikes mentioned.

My family was in Corpus Christi for a funeral/memorial service. We arrived early on the day of check-in, and Shelly was most gracious and compassionate and helped us get settled immediately. Every person who was on duty for the 4 days we were there made sure that we had everything we needed and constantly checked on us making us feel as though we wouldn't lack for anything. The only thing that wasn't mentioned until I arrived back home in Virginia yesterday was that we may have been entitled to a "bereavement rate" on the hotel rooms - we had five rooms with a total of about 20 people and all of us were from out of town or the country. It would have been nice to get some kind of break from the expense of the trip. Anyway, we all want to thank everyone for our stay.

Nice place to stay for any reason. Clean, comfortable beds, nice flat screen, w/d on every floor. Staff was helpful and polite. Eating places and shopping within blocks and an easy drive to Padre Island.

fun

The Hotel had all the info we needed for the attractions we wanted to see. Also the staff was friendly and helpful.

We attended a swimming competition. The location is great and close to the pool. The staff is very helpful, they know what they are doing and they did it efficiently and with the sincerity to help. The place is new, clean and spotless.

Family outing for the weekend. Visted attractions. Enjoyed the pool, food. Location was convenient. Service was excellent.

Excellent stay and staff was great. Breakfast was a wonderful surprise. Plenty to choose from and food was not 'rationed', even at the end of service. Hospitality food server was excellent and quick to replenish.

Clean room but noisy hallways as people walk by. The staff was great in responded to the room tv stop working. They gave us the room next door after they were not able to fix it. Great save! Staff is great! Keep the breakfast too though. It weak!

the beds were very big and comfortable; liked that the rooms had a fridge microwave. breakfast was great with good hours. Location was great less than 15 minutes or so from mustang island state park. The pool was a bit small, water was way too cold for children, and too much chlorine had to leave after about 20 minutes.

The Holiday Inn Express was a very nice place to stay and I would definately stay there again. Staff and facilities were great! Nice newer modern decor that was well maintained.
