Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Irish Girl Holiday Inn Solid Stay
You can never go wrong in a Holiday Inn. We have stayed in a few other hotel chains and they just don't compare. I would rather spend a few dollars more to get the quality than stay in a cheaper hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adorabelle Staff is worth their weight in gold
The staff made this visit wonderful. They were friendly when we checked in, and just as friendly when my son threw up all over our bed at 4 am!
I could not have asked for better service!
Especially Lucy and Martin at the front desk, who were unbelievably understanding! Because of my son's illness (or in spite of it), our checkout time was flexible, and the entire staff was super nice! The guy from housekeeping brought us sheets and towels multiple times (at all hours of the night and early morning) and the cleaning crew was very kind to us, even though I'm pretty sure our room was a beast to clean.
The waitstaff was also great. In the days before the stomach flu got to my son they were great with him and his two cousins.
The pool is very family friendly, and if you sit on the back porch in the evening you can watch bunnies hop around on the back lawn.
FANTASTIC STAFF! They made what would have been a horrible trip more than bearable!
Would stay again.

Its the typical check in lady... can only handle one thing at a time and only things in her checklist. I found this to be the case with all three I dealt with, on two separate days. Seems this property lacks in customer service. No manager on duty at prime checkin times. Has trouble thinking outside the box. I watched two other guest experience the same issues I was having. All the while, the front desk clerk smiled and just kept telling us our request were not in her scope of responsibilities.

I have been staying here off and on for a couple months--I have a big work project going on up the road. I live in the Austin area, but have to be at work at 7am so I stay here on work nights. The front staff is excellent--they even call me by name now. I recommend this place over any other in the area. The restaurant is good, too.

Even though our stay was only one night it was a great experience. The staff was great and understanding. The food and pools were great as well. We really enjoyed our stay. We plan to stay here next time we visit Sea World again.

We were unhappy to find out that the coffee shop, that was apart of the amenities had been closed for 2 years? The stay was great and the transportation was excellent. We had to asked for recognition of IHG rewards. The front desk stated that it was on our reservation but was not place on our rooms?

Our stay provided much needed relaxation. All staff provided excellent customer service with a smile and made us feel welcomed providing a true Texas Hospitality experience. Our suite was very clean, spacious and comfy. (I slept like a baby!)Additionally, this hotel is close to a variety of restaurants, shopping centers and Sea World. The Breakfast Bufffet offered many options and it was plentiful. My favorite option was the Omlet Bar. :) The overall value of this Holiday Inn is exceptional!!!

We purchased the Sea World vacation package from their website. This hotel was a great pick! Wonderful hotel for kids and sooo close to Sea World! We were pleased with everything, from the pools, the restaurant, the staff, and the suite we were given was perfect. This hotel and its location truly helped make our vacation stress-free and enjoyable. Very kid-friendly. Will come again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FamilyTxMan No Room Cleaning
My family (my wife, 4 year old twins, and I) traveled to San Antonio, TX in order to go to Seaworld. We arrived on Saturday night and checked out on Monday morning. I had originally booked a room with two queen sized beds. On check-in, the Holiday Inn employee informed me that I had been upgraded to a suite. When we went up to the room to crash for the night, we realized that the upgrade had only one king sized bed and not the requested two queen sized beds. We prefer two queen size beds for comfortable sleeping with four people. When I called the front desk, I was informed that the hotel was totally booked and there were no rooms with two queen sized beds.
It is great that the hotel offers a shuttle service to Seaworld. This saved us from having to fight the traffic to the park and having to pay for parking. The shuttle driver was extremely friendly, cordial, and informative. If we were to stay at the Holiday Inn again, it would have to be because of the shuttle service and its driver. We originally had the 11 am shuttle reservation, but we were able to move up to 10 am when someone had cancelled their reservation.
We stayed at Seaworld and Aquatica until the park closing time on Sunday of 6 pm. We hopped back onto the shuttle with the same driver and safely arrived back at the Holiday Inn. Again, we had a great experience with the shuttle and shuttle driver. She should receive lots of kudos!
Unfortunately, when we opened the door to our hotel room, we were met with the reality that our room had not been cleaned while we were at Seaworld for the day. Yes, we had taken the "Do Not Disturb" sign off of the door before we had left for Seaworld. The dirty towels from showering were still on the floor and the bed had not been made. The trash can was still full of trash from that morning's breakfast. I called down to the front desk and they brought up fresh towels. Unfortunately, my wife had to empty the trash can personally into the bag that the hotel employee opened up for her. Because some of the trash was sticking to the trash can, she had to reach in to the can, pull it out, and put it into the trash bag. I would have thought that the hotel employee would have offered to do this service.
At check out on Monday morning, I informed the manager about the previous night's incident with the unclean room and having to empty our own trash. She was very apologetic.
All in the all, the Holiday Inn Seaworld is a very nice hotel but the hotel employees except for the shuttle driver need to learn about being more hospitable and the importance of good customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KingKongBundy Love the location
Second time at this location and have nothing but good reviews.
Staff is attentive and give god service(Linda in the front office deserves kudos for working under pressure)
The only reason i gave the 3 stars to comfort and sleep is we got a squeaky bed which is unusual but the other bed was ok and since it was a weekend stay did not want to make a fuss.
All in all good location and we will be coming back in 2 weeks......unless sea world falls of the face of the planet.
