The employees are friendly and hotel is clean. We stayed for six days and enjoyed every minute of it. The beach is about a three minute walk from the hotel. They have a pool opened until 11:00 PM. They have an outdoor shower so you can remove the sand.

These guys saved our family after booking.com lost our reservation at another location. The front desk agent kept calm and confident while my husband and I were at each others throats from this stressful situation. He was so helpful, honest and professional. He was a fairly young guy but I can't remember his name, I know it was 3 letters....

We ended up here after leaving the roach motel down the road about a mile(Windwater). This holiday in was a little pricey but was well worth the stay. Rooms are extremely clean, staff was very helpful and did everything possible to keep it safe. They even give bands for pool use so they know if you belong there or are...

This hotel was perfect for our weekend getaway! The front desk was courteous amd understanding when we checked in and realized we accidentally booked a smoking room. The beach was conveniently a short walk so my husband took our daughter boogie boarding while I rested at the hotel after a long day at work. Enjoyed hanging out at the pool...

This is a very nice place to stay in South Padre Island. It isn't right on the beach, but the beach is only a short walk away - less than 5 minutes. We chose the hotel because the price was lower than those directly on the beach. The staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful. The room was neat, clean,...

We stayed two nights here last week and found it a nice, decent place to stay. Rooms were clean, pool area was nice. Employees were friendly and otherwise no problems. The hotel isn't right on the beach but it's just a short walk away. We chose this hotel because of the lower price and because it was a trusted chain...

Holiday Inn Express is a perfect place to stay in South Padre. It is comfortable, clean, economical and very well-situated. While it is not right on the beach, it is a quick 5 minute walk away. Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful (thank you, Alma Elroy for your info on the Schlitterbahn!). All you have to do is ask. We...
