Holiday Inn Express - N. Padre Island
Pros: Freshly updated and refurbished hotel - the new furniture was very nice and comfortable. Mattress was very comfortable and with the ocean breeze I had one of the best nights sleep that I can
remember (truly felt like vacation). The room was spacious and perfect for three people. Complimentary breakfast was good - if you've stayed at HI Express before then you know exactly what you will receive. Staff was excellent, very friendly and attentive.
Cons: This hotel is located slightly off the beach, across the street. The Holiday Inn hotel is across the street and adjacent to this hotel. Thankfully no construction as of yet in front of the hotel thus there are still unobstructed views of the beach, however you will need to walk across the street or drive to the beach. The hotels allow HI Express guests to use the amenities of the Holiday Inn. The price of this hotel is nearly prohibitive, especially compared to the cost of the Holiday Inn (which truly is beachfront) across the street. [Less]
