Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tlb77962 Nice beds, but noisy outside
I booked this hotel for a mini vacation for my family. While the beds and pillows were very comfortable, the rooms had very poor lighting. No overhead lights whatsoever, only the lamps on the wall. We stayed in the 2 king suite, which was nice since we were traveling with our kids. We had a bedroom and our kids had a bedroom and didn't have to sleep on the pull-out sofa. The sitting area is notably warmer than the rest of the room, which makes sense I guess since the a/c units are in the bedrooms. There was a tv in the sitting area and one bedroom. The bathroom is small, but adequate. The elevator is hot, moves very slow, and sometimes gets stuck on the first floor (we got stuck twice during our stay, and overheard other guests saying they did as well). I believe there is a biker bar behind the hotel, as one night we heard a lot of noise, music, and numerous motorcycles. Also, we heard ambulances many times throughout the night (I think it's near a hospital). Overall, this hotel served its purpose for our visit, but I probably wouldn't stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aimeedev Sound in the rooms
The walls are extremely thin. I could hear the ice maker from 5 rooms away. The air conditioning was in the bedroom portion of the suite the problem with that was if the door was closed the outer sitting room became warm. I was pleasantly surprised that the pull out was comfortable. I was disappointed as to how far from the city market and river walk this hotel was located. I am not familiar with the area and thought it was much closer to the riverwalk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eagle7264 Had a good stay
We liked the price we paid and got a good night sleep for each days activity. Few problems, but I know you can not always please everyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Djsonn Good value. Great Location
For the price, this Holiday Express is a bargain.. close to the main downtown attractions.. parking is limited to one car per room.. so remember that. :)
The only problem was the AC .. seemed to have a problem keeping the room cold enough for my wife and daughter. But we had a suite, and maybe a second unit would be better for the larger rooms.
Hotel staff was friendly enough. Room service was good as well.
Breakfast area was clean, but a little stuffy and humid. I think there were AC repairs going on in the main entry by the looks of extra fans placed in the area
Very nice HDTV channel lineup as well.
Wifi worked well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HEB Vendor Constant Fan!
The constant fan option allowed me to sleep uninterrupted night 1. Night 2 was the horrible thunder storm and nothing would keep that noise out!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GLS68 Disappointed in Holiday Inn
I can't believe they took all the sleeper sofas out of a hotel that offers that 5th bed and did not tell their guests! or offer to put you at another hotel!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CodeTB18 Good room, poor service
If I were reviewing this hotel just on the room, it would look a lot better. The room was clean when we arrived, the space was large, beds were comfortable. If all you want is a room to sleep in, this is a good place to stay comfort wise. However; beware there is live music across the street on the weekends that is very loud. Hotel staff told us "they would be done around 11:30pm".
The breakfast area is very small and can only fit roughly 15- 20 people at a time, the food quality if very poor as well and we avoided eating most of it and stuck with the fruit and bread. The staff was poorly prepared and couldn't keep up with demand. At one point, there were roughly 30 people standing in line, waiting on eggs and pancake batter to be refilled.
Our experience with housekeeping was very poor. On Sunday, our room wasn't cleaned until 5:30pm. They also didn't provide full sheet sets for the couch pull out and instead offered two fitted sheets and said "these should work".
This hotel is probably worth $60 - $70 a night and patrons ok with low expectations, otherwise, stay clear of this location.
