Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ValleyTravel Comfortable but under construction
The hotel was undergoing some major renovations and that should have been noted as I was making my reservations. The room was ready but there was a chemical smell that must have been from the new carpet in the room and the new installations that were going on down the hall.
I believe that if a hotel is going through renovations then this should be noted and that the rate should be lower during this stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingSeniors Under construction, but improving quickly
Lots of new renovations taking place, some noise and odors, but it will soon be in great shape. We have stayed here several times, and the update was needed. Located close to dining, shopping, expressway, easy to locate, good price, close to international bridge.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tiny_true1 Average stay could use better cleanliness.
I would of given this hotel 4-5 stars if it wasn't for the bathroom. I'm usually not picky about rooms as long as the bathrooms are clean. This room an ADA room had a dirty bathtub. It looked like someone had vomited or taken a dump inside of it. I couldn't take a shower at all. I had to use my flip flops inside the bathtub to wash myself quickly. Overall the room was ok for a night kinda humid but overall good.

The property was under renovation during our stay but it didn't affect us at all. The staff was excellent. They were friendly and helpful and easily accommodated my request for an additional room for my father. Highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Villalongin staff very friendly.
In the past, we have stayed at this hotel. We always find the staff and 'breakfast employees' very helpful. The lady that is the 'weekend helper' in the breakfast area was especially nice and quick to anticipate our needs. Very nice. The only small problem we had while staying at the Holiday Inn Express was we had to ask for a new room key twice. Not sure why our key wouldn't work but the person at the desk gave us a new one without any problem. We asked for a ground room floor room as my elderly Mother came to visit and has a bit of trouble with stairs and the elevator. We were given the ground room floor with no questions asked. Really did appreciate that. "Thanks"

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Reasonable One One Night Stand
My overall experience has been poor at the best, I have been staying at this location off and on for 18 years, it has progressively gotten worse.
(1) Reservations : Very difficult-(I get charged "List Rate -5 Star accommodations" for a two star hotel.
(2) Maids are eating breakfast , no food for the guest , does not run smoothly,good selection hard to get to , too many people at once. (Had to spend $23.76 extra because there was no food !
(3) No Coffee, when you arrive ,once again cutting cost that you pay for !
(4) Air quality bad , musty smelling rooms ,(Currently Remolding , but poor filtration , and poor maintenance).
Now because of location I continue to stay here, the phone number is in my phone, I am a "Priority" member with history of staying here,the local staff is either not trained properly on reservations or they should have better supervision. I honestly think they are cutting expenses and charging full price, I worked in this industry while going to college , and I expect a level of competency and courtesy that this company provides , not a motel 6.
I have stayed on business trips with Holiday Inn across the US, this is not the worst , but for the size of property it lacks a lot.
I like this property and continue to stay regardless,of these problems , maybe management needs to be changed ?
I do hope that they resolve these issues.
Thank you for your concerns

Joe was very friendly and helpful and he remembers everybody. Holiday Express makes me feel at home when I am away from home.This is one awesome place and I will be back again. John helped me with my bags too. Food was good and I liked the scrambled eggs ,light and fluffy. Biscuits everyday wow and good coffee too always available.
Very clean room and the bed was very comfortable since I sleep on water mattress at home it did not take me long to adjust.
My boss got me this room and he knows the best quality for the best price.
I absolutely love the air freshener in the restroom on the main floor. i have allergic sinus and it does not irritate them, smells heavenly.
I would like to know what it is that smells so good, maybe you could put some in the smoking rooms.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CLT512 Excellent Employee - Joe
I first want to acknowledge the gentleman that checked me in upon my arrival; Joe was his name I believe. He was superb - very personable and very friendly, one of the best I have come across in my travels. You can tell he really likes what he is doing and his guests. I observed that he was the same with all the guests he checked in. He also made it a point to acknowledge me when I reentered the hotel after I had gone back out for dinner. He is truly a winner that should be recognized.
This was my first stay at this hotel and I thought it was rather pleasant. I didn't hear noise coming from the hallways like what is typical in many hotels. The view of the small lake was nice and the room was comfortable.
My only complaint would have to be the same one that I have for all of the Holiday Inn Expresses and that would be the breakfast. I travel a lot and stay mostly at Holiday Inn Express and the breakfast is the same at all of them. After eating the same thing for several consecutive days it gets a bit tiring. I would like to see Holiday Inn Express get a better variety of hot breakfast items and fresh fruit with cottage cheese would be a welcomed healthy addition to the normal high calorie offerings.

I am in the business of service and I canot believe that this Hotel has the level of professional and friendly staff that they do. I have stayed three seperate weeks for training and I expected to see at least one incident of unprofessionalism but they ended being the one thing I looked forward to at the end of my day. A smiling face and warm smile. One morning I had shared to a co-worker that I hadn't taken a piece of fruit because it didn't look as fresh as the day before, when I started my car, I heard a knock on my window and a staff worker had overheard me ran from the front desk and found me a fresh piece of fruit and chased me down in the parking lot to give it to me. Later, when I came in to find out who it was to thank her, I found out it was the General Manager Juani. Really? Who does that? I will be returning next week and look forward to my Holiday Inn family! Thank you for all that you have done. You have showed this Banker some things about service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drillman1 Clean, comfortable with great staff
Always stay here while in Brownsville and believe it's the best value in town. I've stayed at many more expensive hotels that didn't have comfort level and attentive staff this hotel has. Nice breakfast selection with a great view of a lake with loads of friendly ducks.
If visiting Brownsville, do yourself a favor and stay at a place where the staff actually cares if your comfortable and happy.
Rarely do I brag so much about a hotel but this is an exception.
