"A wonderful first time visit!"
We were totally surprised by the number of retirees who make So. Padre a winter retreat! The Holiday Inn Express seems to have an activity director who keeps activities available, and, has a bulletin board with other activities in the community. Absolutely everyone makes you feel welcome. Our room was well maintained for the weekend we were there, 1 […] block to the beach, front desk very attentive to any questions or problems. (refund on the spot for pop machine problem and immediate call to a repairman!) We can't wait to go back next year! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was so easy to check in. Staff was very courteous. Loved the room with the exception that the walls were a bit thin. TV in next room could be heard, but muffledGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great place to stay. Very clean, nice rooms, comfy beds, very nice sercice and they were not calling first thing next day to kick us out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is great and would stay here again. The only thing is the coffee selection need to have more variety or need to be update along with different teas. Overall a wonderful hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what hotel.com says it is"
Nice, clean hotel close to the beach (short block). Only problem was we read your description and thought the hotel was on the beach. I looked up their website and they were quite clear that the hotel is not on the beach. Another minor complaint was that they called their breakfast a "buffet". It was just a little better than what most hotels provide […] now. I would still recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wall are paper thin"
Too much doors slamming at all hours of nightGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This Hotel was comfortable. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The pool was nice, we spent most of our afternoons here. The Beach is 3 minutes away from the hotel by foot, however, there is no place to lay out on the beach very select spots. The beach water was warm but if you stay in too long it feels like bath water and seaweed is everywhere. […] Okay...back to the hotel, the breakfast was pleasing to say the least, they offered a variety which was excellent for a continental breakfast. Our room was always clean and the bed was comfy and we had no issues at all with this family friendly hotel. I would go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel at a great price."
Excellent stay at a great price. Only thing I'd change is adding the ability to turn my fan down (it was super fast/cool or off). How's that for a good sign? Nothing else needs adjusting. My bed was comfortable, room very clean, staff helpful, and location strong. I'll be back for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second visit to this hotel. As always, they did not let us down. The staff is very courteous; the hot breakfast is very tasty; and the hotel is very clean! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to South Padre Island. Keep up the Excellent Work, Staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dining area is always clean especially the carpet."
Great experience always. Staff always courteous and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The room smells bad."
Don't like the room at all. Breakfast is ok, just for full. The smell of the room is terrible. Hotel is closed to the beach. Labor Day price was so expensive for what I got. All members of the trip said won't have this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Expectation v/s Reality"
After reading about the hotel, calling & speaking with a representative & passing up cheaper hotels in the area expecting better because of the price & reputation of Holiday Inn my family & I were disappointed in what we found at this location. We arrive late about 8pm or so. We were looking for a hotel that was just off of the beach with easy access. […] We found our hotel was not easily accessing the beach & was directly across from a sandy plot or mud pitt or something. We walked into our hotel & first noticed chairs upside down on tables across from the entry as though they were closed or closing. We only noticed one person on duty behind the counter & several people seated in the closed dining area. After checking in, the transit ways & elevator we not clean or in good repair. The rugs/mats near & in the elevator were torn & very dirty. The elevator made loud noises as though it strained to do it's job. Our room was okay, it was clean enough but not high quality & not worth the money. We had just left a Biloxi MS 5 star hotel for nearly half the cost & 10 times the quality. The beds were not comfortable to sleep & our view was horrible. I will not stay here again. Other hotels near by were 20% the cost & looked better to us after we arrived. I was disappointed, & my wife was not impressed with my choosing this hotel. We traveled from Biloxi MS, to New Orleans to Galveston to S. Padre to San Antonio & back home to Houston this week. This one by far was the worse of all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel is in a convenient location"
The hotel was in a great location close to a beach access so you could park and walk to the beach. The staff was very friendly & courteous. Alma and Edith who was walking the halls were very helpful. The breakfast was good too. We would book again through Expedia since that seems to be the best prices. They would not honor the same price had we extended […] our stay so we moved to a different hotel after our first night. That was the only negative. Don't count on them extending your reservation like most places would honoring your original price. There is also no late check outs though front desk staff contradicted themselves on that. Trip was great minus getting stung by a stingray. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will go back next time we are in south padre"

Good hotel for the price, walking distance to the beach, breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable stay with fairly quick access to beach"
We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express based on the comfort of our room, complimentary continental breakfast, and short walk to the beach. Beach access with "no vehicles permitted" was a plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to the beach"
Hotel price was too high for an average night. The overall appearance of hotel was average. It would benefit from better cleanliness and renovations. Staff was not as warm and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, friendly hotel"
Stayed here last week and it was a great hotel. It's not on the beach but its close. Everything about it was great. I had already stayed here last year and liked then then also.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, quiet location, good access to beach"
Nice place to stay in a quiet location, clean, like-new rooms, and convenient access to the beach. Hotel amenities are fine and in good condition, breakfast is good quality, dining area is a bit crowded at mid morning. No issues with towels or unwelcoming staff. Will definitely come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beds were so wonderfully comfortable!"
We loved our stay. The room was spacious and clean, the beds were awesome, and the staff was very courteous, helpful, and friendly. We also enjoyed the free continental breakfast. I was very happy about the fact that when we went down for breakfast a few times, many other families were there as well which made it hard to find an empty table. The staff […] was quick to set up extra tables for us to sit and enjoy our breakfast. It felt good that it mattered to them that we were comfortable. Our stay was a great experience. No complaints here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"My Vacation Getaway"
I highly recommend this hotel. The staff is veery friendly, I feel safe and secure during my stays. There is adequate beach access and a good pool area...:)Genuine Expedia guest review
The front desk personnel were wonderful. They were anxious to help with any questions. People in my group were from Mexico and spoke only Spanish. Every employee of the hotel that we met spoke Spanish and English. This was a great relief because assistance from the hotel staff was very rapid no matter which language was spoken. Across the street from […] the hotel is the turtle rescue organization with many handicapped turtles which is a wonderful attraction for the kids. Because South Padre Island has free shuttle buses that stop at the hotel to go to any part of the island, after arrival at the hotel the hotel guests can relax and let some one else get them where they want to go. I want to stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel and close to the beach"
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, pancakes were really good. It was clean, comfortable and somewhat quiet. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. It is a ways down the beach from some of the activities but we liked the location. My grandson enjoyed the pool too. Would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, clean hotel, not far from beach, Clayton's"
We travel to South Padre two or three times a year and this is one of the hotels we regularly stay at. It's a new and clean place with pleasant, friendly staff. It's a 2.5/3.0 star hotel, above average, but not a luxury hotel. The beds are hard, like the ones at too many other hotels. The free breakfast is pretty decent. It's about a block and a half […] to the beach, an easy walk. The best thing, though, is that it is fairly close to Clayton's, so you can have a few drinks on the beach and not have to drive afterwards. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I amso glad we chose this hotel. It was perfect for the 3 of us. The first night it seemed as thouh the people abov us must have weighed a ton & enjoyed walking all night. In the morning I asked the front desk staff if they had anything on the 4th floor. The staff was very accomidating even allowing us to store our luggage in their office until our […] new room was ready. The beach was a 5 minute walk and we loved it. Although the pool was a little small, it was refreshing and fun. We used the BBQ grill for our lunch 2 days and enjoyed eating by the pool. The morning breakfast buffet was good, sometimes a little challenging because of the limited space, but we enjoyed it. You can't miss with this reasonable hotel. The bed pillows are to die for, we loved them. Thank you staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is not in walking distance to the beach especially if you have a family with kids going and you have to lug everything there like a shade canopy. Way too heavy to carry it there from this hotel. The breakfast is decent. Staff was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value; free breakfast; nice pool"
It was a short walk to the beach and a pleasant stay. Free breakfast was very crowded and busy which made breakfast after 830a quite unpleasant due. However, the staff was excellent at keeping all the food stocked.Genuine Expedia guest review
"summer vacation, great time with family - no Wi-fi"
we stayed at this hotel and everything was great, staff really nice, breakfast ok and not too crowded (during the week), short walk to the beach. The only thing that didn't work well was the wireless internet that wasn't working properly and on and off all the time. The guest service guy told me that it's because there are too many people using it so […] it gets slow but to me sometimes it just didn't work at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Decent price, ok facility"
A good place to sleep. Not much in the room as far as furniture, but you don't go to Padre to hang out in the room. Decent breakfast buffet, ok pool (4.5 feet deep). Beds comfortable, TV good, pretty central location.Genuine Expedia guest review

Everything was great! Good location to the Beach and good pool and hot tub.Staff was great! 5*****Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely pool area. Super clean facilities. Very responsive staff. I had no complaints during our stay at all, everything was there when we needed it. Just a little bit further from the beach than I would have liked, maybe a block or so, but it seems so far when you're wet, full of sand, and carrying all that beach gear.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine for location"
Good for families - wish there was a suite because the breakfast, pool and closeness to the beach was great for family.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location to walk to the beach."
Great place to stay. The rooms are large. Hotel staff was very accomodating. Hotel within walking distance to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach!"
Staying at the Holiday in Express Hotel and Suites South Padre Island was a nice experience. We stayed in a king Jacuzzi suite. Having the Jacuzzi to relax in at the end of our first day on the island and after a 9 hour drive was very enjoyable and relaxing. The rooms were very clean. Even though I opted out of the cleaning service one morning they […] had brought us fresh towels later in the day which was nice. I noticed quite a few families staying there and it is only a 2 block walk to the beach. Perfect location! So close to the beach and plenty of places in walking distance for us 20 something's looking for a place to party or have a good time. You can walk up the beach to Clayton's which has live bands on the weekends, food, signature drinks and beach volleyball. I didn't eat there so I can't really attest to the food quality. Lots of other places to have fun within 2-3 miles of the hotel. I really enjoyed my stay but will most likely get a condo for a few days next time, one with a pool. There was just lots of kids so I didn't really bother using the pool at the hotel. Don't bother going to Parrot Eye across the street. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"skip the sleeper sofa"
and get a rollaway. Sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable.Also - why do hotels install those rain shower heads instead of a real shower head. It's not refreshing and hard to rinse the soap fromhair. Otherwise, the hotel was fine and service was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I was expecting more...."
Breakfast was poor.... The hotel facilities were less nice than I was thinking.... the price was higger for the facilities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Adequate Hotel, Not on Beach, No Balcony"
The hotel was ok, not anything special, though. The hallway on the non-smoking floor smelled musty and the elevators were bad--hot and seemed to struggle. The room was clean and comfortable, but had no balcony. We had a problem with the toilet which kept running, and the staff repaired it in a timely manner. The breakfast was good, but not anything […] special. The pool was enjoyable and clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
