Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by T & B Nice Pool & Clean
Overall I liked this property, clean, the pool is nice and the rooms are attractive; the beds are a bit too hard and the younger staff could use a bit more professionalism training. I would return.

Everything was wonderful except the water pressure in the shower and the cable channels weren't clear at all. I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by paperlady107 ALL the staff were FRIENDLY
From the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out the staff at the front desk, the cleaning staff, the great room/breakfast staff, everyone was super friendly and asked how my stay was going and it I needed anything. I felt like a guest and that made the stay all the more enjoyable.
The pool is a salt water pool and was really nice. I have never stayed in a traditional hotel while visiting the beach and the hotel was within walking distance, not too close but not too far where walking would seem like a chore. It might be with a bunch of chairs and carrying bags but overall 1 block from the beach access road isn't bad.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Could be cleaner and staff could be more helpful
Rooms were not as clean and not as roomy as other Holiday Inns I have stayed at before. Staff could also be more helpful, when asking the front desk for help they would send me to find another employee to ask instead of finding the other employee themselves. Breakfast buffet was also not refilled once out and items were taken away at closing time (9:30am) when people were still standing in line waiting. Not the worst hotel I have stayed at and for the most part was an okay hotel, but with a couple of improvements it could be up to the Holiday Inn standards that I'm accustomed to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sting1234 Great location and breakfast
This is a great location for fishing and going to the beach. It has places to wash off outside and a new BBQ and Picnic area where you can cook food. Excellent place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LESMLS Comfy Bed
We arrived very late and the staff was there to get us checked in quickly so we could get to bed. The only issue we had with the breakfast was that the breakfast room as so crowded, there was nowhere to sit and the breakfast bar was packed 3 deep waiting on food to heat/cook. If you just wanted a plate, you had to push your way through the crowd to get to the clean plates. Maybe a relocation of plates/plasticware would help this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DSCantu Take Advantage of the Outdoor Picnic Area
This hotel has a pergola-covered picnic area that was a highlight of our stay. There are 2 or 3 picnic tables and 2 or 3 sitting areas along with three bbq grills. It is located behind the hotel and offers you the chance to cook out or picnic to keep your travel costs down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RichC67 Great staff!
We had a wonderful time here. The whole staff was great! They had plenty of suggestions for dinner, avoiding crowds etc. We traveled with a large group with 3 rooms and were able to put us near each other. They were even nice enough to allow us to gather in the breakfast area one evening, turning on the lights and even offering access to the t.v., allowing us to spend some quality time together. The breakfast was amazing! The pool was enjoyed by the whole family...was nice to have some shade on part of the pool.We would easily consider staying here again in the future!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Freddy123 Friendly Staff, Clean, and Walking Distance from the Beach
The staff was the absolute friendliest, and made check in super easy. The hotel was clean,and had a good variety of breakfast options. I was actually excited that they served eggs not just cereal and bagels! My hotel room was very clean and well-kept, and was happy with how very comfortable I slept through the night. The hotel is just walking distance from the beach, so this makes it convenient. Overall very fun stay! Thanks Holiday Inn Express Port Aransas!

We stayed here for a week recently. Very pretty place and very clean. I had an issue w my room not being clean and the staff took care of it immediately. I would get a 3rd room floor bec I had Bigfoot in the room on top of ours. The pool is nice and the beds are comfy. Breakfast was acceptable but very busy. I would stay here again!

If you're looking for a nice hotel close to the beach, this is it. We had the a queen suite and it was so nice and clean, not to mention the pool and hot tub. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blondie1303 Birthday Celebration Weekend
Thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous weekend at the beach celebrating birthdays. The check-in staff were very friendly and accommodating. My room was clean, bed was comfortable and the pillows were great! My room was very quiet, despite being right next to the ice machine and elevator. The A/C was always cool and comfortable. My towels were updated and freshened. The breakfast room was always busy and seemed to have a great selection, even though I did not eat there. The hotel was within walking distance of the beach and many local restaurants and shops, very convenient.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by momily Not great
This hotel was ok. There were holes in our sheets, the people in the breakfast area would wipe the tables off with their hands, not a rag. It is a tourist town and you can tell they will be booked no matter what the accommodations. It is almost like they know they can do things half way and still be fully booked. The staff was very nice, the upkeep just wasn't what it usually is when we stay at this chain in other towns.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Unknowntraveler99 Poor night staffing
The reason for the poor ratings on the Staff, sleep quality & able to relax is due to the nights staffs inability and unwillingness to follow through with their job duties. After a third visit down stairs, I had to threaten to call the police if he did not. Only because raised my voice and would not leave until he called the police is the reason they were called. In 18 years of traveling, I have never had to go down to the front desk to get my point across.
Then the next morning I find out that there was nothing in the overnight ledger about unruly guest or that police had to be called.
I was told by the morning staff that the manager would be informed and I would be contacted. However, that didn't take place either. Late in the day I just happen to run into the manager, while talking to her I found out no one had relayed any info to her. Once I filled her in about the over night experience she was more then apologetic. Throughout the day I waited to be contacted but was not and b/c I wasn't I made the decision to pack up my family end our vacation early rather then experience another night like the one before. I believe if it hadn't been so late in the day and there were other rooms available the manager would have moved us, however, once she found out, she didn't have that option available.
