Spent the weekend in Port Aransas for Mothers day. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was spacious enough for 3 adults and 3 children. We spent most of our time in the hot tub since the weather was cloudy and windy. We still had a great time and will definitely stay there again.

We had a pleasant stay even though they are remodeling. Our newly remodeled room was very nice with the exception of the vinyl upholstered small sofa and the lack of a hook on the bathroom door. I much prefer the chair and ottoman they had before and would have used a door hook, but the rest of the new furnishings...

Even though there was plenty of renovation going on that did not disrupt our stay. Very clean rooms, with lots of space. We had a the room with two queens a third queen could have easily fit in the room. Pull out couch, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Breakfast in the morning.

Where do I start? I pulled up seemed like no cars, a few small signs said lobby closed go to back of building. I went to the back, a sign on fire door said enter here. The next sign said guest check in is in room 111. They were under construction to say the least! The lobby was torn apart,...

The Holiday Inn Express is very nice. Complimentary newspapers (always a welcome touch) along with a good breakfast bar make for an enjoyable morning. The staff is great. However, I would avoid it until March 2016. They are undergoing a lot of renovation at present. The work starts early in the morning and can be disruptive to late sleepers.

We have stayed at this hotel several times in the past. It does not have views of the beach, but it is close to town. Typically we have enjoyed our stays, but this one fell flat.

My friends and I stayed here at the end of summer. It's walking distance from the beach, as well as to the main stretch of town where one can buy swim/fishing gear, as well as good seafood restaurants. Our room was clean, tidy, and was the right price. Some hotels have trim damage, or peeing wallpaper that often gets ignored,...
