“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

I stayed here for a week while I was a conference. I didn't spend much time at the hotel, so I can't comment in depth, but it was clean, quiet, well run, and just what I needed for a home base for a week. The complimentary breakfast included eggs and biscuits in addition to cereal and pastries, they even moved the start time for breakfast up an hour to accommodate those attending my conference, which was nice. My impression is that you pay a little more, and get a little more, at the Holiday Inn than at the other standard hotels in Harlingen.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 103, right next to the workout room, and I was worried about noise. It turned out t...

Stayed 2 nights while attending a conference in the area. Found the front desk staff to be top notch, answering all of my questions with a smile. Breakfast was typical Holiday Inn Express with the usual hot and cold items. Room was well appointed and housekeeping did a good job during my stay. Did not use the pool. Only complaint was TV was nice flat screen but only standard definition channels. Hotel is near plenty of places to eat or get a beverage in the evening. Walgreens just around the corner for most of your needs. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.

Considering i was watching the news and only an hour drive away the drug cartel had a shoot out in reynosa and a 3 year old was kidnapped and luckily released in harlingen but other then that i found the hotel was nice and safe.

alot of bussiness people some families but no 10,000 kids running around. The pool was warm. It sits in the 104 degree weather all day. The jacuzzi is wayyyy to hot to enjoy during the day becuase it sits in 104 degree weather. Wait till night time to enjoy the jacuzzi.

The rooms were nice except the ac. You need to turn it down to 65 to get cold in the room. Althought its not to cold it gets more like a muggy humid cold. You wake up with sweat on your neck then the ac compressor kicks in at 3 when the weather has cooled down and then it get gets cold and the blankets you have are not enough. You can turn the temp to 70 degrees but then you will wake up sweating again.

There is no water in the coke machines but the front desk gives them to you for free! The breakfest is ok not the best. Just drive down the road and find a taco place and get some delicious breakfest tacos. Very big hint: if there are alot of cars at the taco house then its a good restuarant.......

Beds are very uncomfortable. When you sleep you are supposed to sleep flat with an arch in your lower back. When you sleep in these beds you sleep with a bowed curve in your lower back. It does not support you lower arch in your back and then the uncomfortableness of waking up 5 or 6 times a night happens. Not good at all.

The staff was friendly...there are restaurants walking distance...chilis and others and a movie theatres in front of the hotel....

I travel weekly on business, typically staying in a Marriott-brand, but this time thought I would give HIE a shot.
They say first impressions are everything...receptionist didn't make eye contact and was less than happy to be there (jt seemed).
Room was old, fixtures had begun to show signs of rust. Worst of all was an extremely strong moldy smell! I'm an allergy-prone type, but thought I could get through this by spraying some body spray,etc. I should have asked for a different room our just went around the corner to the Courtyard, but nooooo.
So I paid the price with an upper respiratory infection for the next 3-4 days.
I'm headed there again today on business and you can bet I'll stay at the Courtyard instead.

We stay here once a year because of its location being close to the people we visit. They are improving the rooms and the public areas. The breakfast was quite good for this type of place. The staff is not that knowledgeable but are very friendly. If you like HIEs, you will like this one.

I stayed one night here and found it to be a good place to stay. It's near the airport and there are several restaurants within walking distance. The staff are competent and I had no problems.

Everything about this place was terrible. The breakfast counters were much to high for my kids. The staff was very rude. I tried to complain to the general manager, and he was nowhere to be found. I tried for two days, then finaly gave up and checked out. Each time I asked, "He's in a meeting." The staff seemed to be uncaring about my complaints. No offer for a discount, or anything. If you have a family, don't stay here. Also, there were cobwebs everywhere. I have made a formal complaint to 1-800-HOLIDAY.
