Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 109 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Super Location for a Familiy Beach Weekend Quite New Hotel in walking distance to beach For a HI Express in a very good Location. Very helpfull staff (Mr. Nixon) One of the best HI Express we stayed in Texas April 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bed and Staff I found the bed to be too soft for my taste. Most other hotels I stay in, including Holiday Inn Express's, have firmer beds. One hotel chain has adjustable mattress firmness. However, the staff was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful. April 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful comfortable hotel in the heart of everything We loved this hotel, when we first made reservation we only booked one night because hotel had no restaurant or bar, but because of the excellent location it does not need either. The hotel is a short walk from a big variety of great restaurants, live music, great fishing spots as well as the beach. The staff was great and Ryan at check in made excellent suggestions of places to eat and see live music! Very comfortable clean hotel with a great breakfast buffet. This location will be top if our list for future coast visits! April 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 My trip Had a great stay.the staff was great,I love the pool,I had some problem last weekend but staff went out of there way to make it up,our stay was very nice thanks mrs.nixon see ya soon. April 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Location good, front desk so -so We stayed at this location for the second time and this time the front desk service was not as nice, they didn't mention that we are IHG members, which I think they are supposed to? We did show up just to see if we could check in early, with no expectations, but the response was very rude. Female on duty, didn't get name. Later when we dealt with a male at the front desk, he was very nice and helpful. Location is great, pool/hottub are nice - it was raining so we couldn't use them, but we will likely stay here again when in Port A - if we can get a good rate. April 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing! This site was chosen on a whim. Using the IHG finder, 6-8 Holiday Inns were located in the Corpus Christi area. We decided to check this one out since we had never stayed in Port "A". THis turned out to be a fine choice. The staff were excellent. If anything, the internet was a little slow. But who needs internet when there is a great beach and so much fresh air to enjoy! April 8, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dirty rooms, rude staff Check in staff was rude and one of the two rooms was filthy . The rooms were not worth the priority points I used. I booked the rooms for my wife and daughter to have a short get away. I will never stay or book this motel again. One room was a handicap room which was not required or wanted! Dirty towels and a filthy shower curtain in one room. Being a Platinum member I never experienced this before. April 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Failed to meet my expectation! I have been visiting the Port Aransas area for the last 3 to 4 years on a annual basis, this hotel was recommended to me by friend who I hold in high regard. When we first visited your establishment several years ago, we could not say enough great things about your hotel concerning the facilities, amenities, location, and the friendliness of the staff. However every time that we have been there has been an issue with Wi-Fi connectivity in our room. In today's day and age most all hotels and the majority of motels utilize Wi-Fi connection for their guests free of charge, on our last visit this past weekend again! We had trouble ever getting connected to the Wi-Fi connection, it seems that you have a problem, and that you are aware of it, however you choose to ignore it and do nothing about it, the reason I make the statement is because the front desk clerk hands you a piece of paper with a code on it, and a 1-800 number to call if you have any problems, seems like they are already anticipating that you are going to have a problem, and so that they do not have to deal with it they have given your number to call, and the person that you call response but never does anything about it. I know that I am getting long-winded concerning this Wi-Fi connectivity, however when we as consumers and customers make decisions and selections to patronize your hotel because of advertised amenities, we expect to get what we pay for, this hotel is not the cheapest hotel in the area, I am sure that most of your business is derived because of location. Chances are that me and my family will not be back to visit this hotel, mainly because of price vs. value, and the customer service that surrounds the amenities and the advertised amenities. You can check your records and find out that we only stayed one night in your hotel, however, me and my family were there for three days this past weekend, we chose to stay someplace else for the remainder of the time, even though we spent less money at the other hotel that we patronized, we did have a better experience for less money, that is what I call Value! By the way, at the other locations that we stayed at their in Port Aransas, the Wi-Fi connectivity required no codes, nor any 1- 800 numbers to call, and the hotel was very clean and had great customer service.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed We stayed before and the staff was amazing with our son. They let him feed the fish in the lobby but this time when exiting the hotel after checkout there need no for acknowledgement. Two female employees stood at the desk when we were leaving and didn't even smile or say two words to us as we exited the hotel! Not "I hope you had a great stay" or a "goodbye!". As for the night staff, he was great! Our tv didn't work and we called the front desk and someone came right up and fixed it! As for the shower, the shower head was so clogged up with lime that the shower was pointless to use. The room was a little small and right next to the ice machine which was surprisingly quiet. Breakfast was typical powdered eggs. Overall it was ok. March 9, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Two strikes 1. The road in front of the hotel was being re-surfaced (read, hot tar and no other access). It would have reduced the surprise if we had received an advance notice phone call. Even better would be some compensation for the cost of removing tar from the lower panels of our car. 2. One morning the maid visited much earlier than noon, and we had not yet left our room. She left fresh towels and departed - no emptying trash or other service. The next day we were away from about 10:30 am until 7:30 pm. We arrived to find that the room had not been cleaned in any fashion (no one had been there). The desk clerk kindly brought new bath towels. We complained about the latter incident and were given a credit for a partial night's cost. Frankly we would rather have the sort of good service we have enjoyed at this hotel during previous visits. March 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just nice and quite. went down to chill and catch fish. the holiday inn helped me do just that. clean and nice people too. helped me find the good food in town too. I will stay here again. February 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very near the beach The staff was very nice and friendly. The room was great. I just wish the water pressure in the shower was better. Perhaps it was just an issue with the shower head. The hotel was a very nice 5 minute walk to the beach. Overall this is a great hotel. We will be back with the kids and grandchild! February 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I would come back! Good value, great staff front desk( Brian) very helpful and fun. Good suggestions as to where eat and how to get there. The hot tub and pool looked good but too cold to go outside. February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great rooms, spacious and comfortable Had a great time near the beach. Very convenient and can walk or drive to the beach in less than 5 minutes. Extremely clean hotel and updated. Great pool area and jacuzzi. January 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not a good start but a great ending We had been traveling all day and arrived at night with our two children at night, so we were all exhausted. It was a disappointment that we had to change rooms because the blackout curtains were missing and then the second room was missing the window sheer and the sheets and pillow for the trundle. My husband ended up changing curtains and brings the sheets from the other room which was not something one expects to be dealing with but once that was over all was well. It was a bump in the road but when I informed the front staff the next morning they apologized and were even kind enough to call me that I had left my pillow! January 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extended our Stay by a further 2 days What a wonderful property. The staff were pleasant and knowledgeable about Local attractions and activities. The price was perfect. The Hot Breakfast was an added bonus. The hot tum and pool were spotless and oh so comfortable. A great stay which we extended by a further 2 days we were so impressed. The closeness to both the Beach and the town was handy.for all wandering about. Definetely a five star property well run and managed. December 10, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and facility. This is my second stay at this location, We were impressed the first time for the friendly and helpful staff. It is comfortable and clean and the breakfast is more than adequate. We are certain to stay again. November 13, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable and Clean We visited in the off peak period. The staff was helpful and we will stay there again when we visit the area. October 26, 2013

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Port Aransas room clean ,fair price for location. beach two blocks away October 18, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, but... Although we loved the proximity to the beach (easy walk or ride in one of the rental carts), the beds were very uncomfortable and left us feeling stiff and sore the next morning. The breakfast was good, and the staff very helpful and friendly. Elevator was SLOW, easier to take the stairs. Curtains would not close in the room, and lighting seemed bright as day. October 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable stay My husband and I were celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary and picked Holiday Inn Express as our weekend getaway. Nice clean room close to the beach, dining and shopping. Even though there was a motorcycle convention in the area, it wasn't too crowded. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Breakfast was nice, eggs, bacon, fruit, cereal, even a machine that made pancakes for you. Push a button and in a few minutes you had a hot pancake slide out the side. A very enjoyable stay overall. October 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super friendly staff and great accommodations The staff was so friendly and helpful, especially the breakfast staff. They were cheerful and accommodating. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Only issue we had was that we had asked for connecting rooms which we didn't get but other than that, a great stay. Hope to be back soon! October 8, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel but no extras I usually don't do reviews although I have been a Platinum member for many years. I have stayed at this location before and have always been given an upgraded room without asking, usually overlooking the pool. The location and facility are fine, nothing egregious there...my review is along the lines of value received as a loyal Platinum Priority Club member. I stayed this for a night this past week and although I am a platinum member and have been a Priority Club Member since 1983 this location showed no recognition of that whatsoever...I wasn't even offered a bottle of water. In addition, I had to be given one of the smallest rooms in the hotel, looking over the front parking lot...so I obviously wasn't given an upgraded room...even though I thought that was automatic as a Platinum member. We are now in the off season for this beach area location and they had plenty of rooms so availability shouldn't have been an issue. To me as both a business traveler as well as staying at Holidays Inns for pleasure as well, it's the little "extras" that keep you loyal. It's "ok but not great" stays like this one that make me wonder if I should re-think my steadfast loyalty to Holiday Inn throughout the years. September 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent! We called ahead to let them know we would be arriving late, our room was saved for us. We received a gift bag for being rewards members, along with free late check out. Staff was excellent, room was clean! The complementary bath products were bath and body works, which was a huge plus. (normally really cheap products at most hotels). I needed to go to my car late at night, the night manager offered to walk me out. Hotel was extremely clean. We didn't go down to breakfast until late, so maybe that is why the choices were slim. I recommend to anyone! Also only a short walk from the beach! September 18, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful Staff Property very close to beach, walking distance! Elevator not working so had to switch room to 1st floor for an available double bed instead of reservation for king size. Overall nice, clean property. August 30, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing stay Hotel was pretty and staff were helpful and always smiling. The elevator was broken when I arrived and when I left the next day. They fixed the elevator then, it broke again and I had to carry my luggage(two trips) down three flights of stairs. I requested a wake up call so i could board a day fishing trip and I did not receive that. Pool and hot tub were really nice. The elevator experience was dreadful. I missed the fishing trip. Room and staff were excellent. August 28, 2013
