First I had another room reserved at another place but that got all screwed up by their staff somehow. So I could only find an opening at the Holiday Inn Express on Port Aransas Island. They charged me $279 per night for a "suite" which was really no bigger than a regular room at another hotel (that was cheaper by...

Mr. Nations, We understand you already were frustrated before arriving to our hotel as you mentioned you had issues with your previous hotel provider. Availability is limited in Port Aransas as this is peak season in a destination area. The high demand accounts for the city-wide room rates. Actually, our hotel is priced more economically than many lodging providers in...

We stayed at this hotel June 30-July 2nd, 2012 and were very pleased with our stay. The room was very large, quite spacious, as well as very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was also very large, and I liked how it was spacious enough where the door did not bump into the toilet. I also liked how the hotel was...

My parents lived on the island for many years, this being my first trip back since they moved. I like the sand and humidity when I am on the beach, but not in my room when I am going to sleep. That is why I was very pleased with Holiday Inn, the bedrooms were clean and extremely comfortable!!!

We planned a last minute family beach weekend getaway down to Port A on a friday night. We booked the last one bedroom suite with a pull out sofa for our kids..7 and 5. This was really a great experience for us..the room was clean and the staff was great. Clearly this was a low budget, no frills planned weekend...

No, its not an Indigo or W, but its not that kinda town. For a laid back beach town, this is as good as it gets. Here's why: - Short walk to the beach. 5 minutes tops. - Pool for when you don't want to got to the beach. - HUGE, clean, rooms. I had a suite, so it was...

Too windy to camp, so we walked in at the Holiday Inn. The lady at the desk was extremely courteous and helpful, and I think we ended up staying there mainly because of her. The hotel is relatively clean (bathtub grout has some pink issues) but not inexpensive (location drives up price). If you like prefab food, there's a free...

The pool was nice although not all that big but still very nice. The room had a microwave and a fridge. The beach was very close also a nice plus. We just didn't feel the stay was worth the price. And the overall attitude of the hotel left a little to be desired. They sort of made you feel like...

Great breakfast that gets you going in the morning. Saves on a meal expense. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Bathroom shower head could be better, and part of the wall needed to be touched up from some damage.
