Had a 2-room suite with bedroom door for privacy. Very nice place with excellent service and a delicious breakfast. Only about an easy 1-1/2 block walk to the beach.

We travelled for spring break to San Antonio and wanted to spend a few days at the beach. I chose Port Aransas from other reviews and the Holiday Inn Express from the many good reviews on Trip Advisor. The desk clerk Ruchel was very helpful in booking 2 adjoining rooms for our family. Beds were very comfortable. One of the rooms was a king/handicapped room. The bathroom was remodeled and nice-no tub, but had a lip for the large shower so I'm not sure how someone handicapped would get in it...couldn't roll in. I had looked into the many condos in the area but was apprehensive as it seemed to be a hit or miss in terms of cleanliness and facilities. We were not set up for cooking, so the Holiday Inn was our choice. It was a five minute walk to the beach. The facility seems quite new and clean. The hotel was very quiet during the week we were there. We did not hear any noise between rooms, but did hear smaller children running around upstairs in the morning. We ate at Shells across the street which was wonderful....huge portions. Breakfast at the hotel was typical Holiday Inn fare which was fine, and the woman working there was very friendly. We used the outdoor pool and hot tub several times....all nice and kid friendly. The hotel is very convenient to all the shopping and restaurants and sights to see. Overall, we felt good about our choice of Holiday Inn Express and would recommend it to others.

A must stay! Ultra clean rooms, pool, lobby. Rooms were cozy and just what we needed. Free breakfast was fresh, hot and on time. Staff goes beyond the normal to accommodate your needs. The suites, especially for kids are the best anywhere. We will stay here from now on!

I liked the cleanliness and new qualities of this hotel, but we booked a two day stay and found service to be terribly lacking. We spent half the time locked out of our room because they couldn't get our "keys" to work. We were late for a family wedding because of the inefficiency and rudeness of the front desk staff. They blamed us for the key problems and said they worked when they didn't. We're used to the New York metro area where the customer is always right and assistance is quickly available. Totally turned us off to Texas as a whole. Will never return.

We had about 4 nights to spend in PA. Visited a few condo's but all showed shortcomings mostly regarding poor maintenance or doubtful hygiene. Finally we checked the Holiday inn express, got a great rate and all the comfort we needed. The hotel is two blocks from the beach, has an excellent pool, exercise room, complimentary and good breakfast and the staff is very friendly.
This was all we needed and we had a wonderful stay.

Port Aransas is mostly known for local condominiums, but the relatively new Holiday Inn Express is a nice alternative. It was a pretty standard HIX: clean, reasonable amenities, and courteous staff. Didn't try the continental breakfast but it was available if you're into that. Location was good, about a 3 minute walk from the public beach and 5 minute walk from golf cart rentals, a few restaurants and bars, and a liquor store. However, the marina area with the best restaurants is not within walking distance. Hot tub is excellent. Someone lit up a bowl of Mary Jane on my floor Saturday night, but staff and local police dealt with the situation quickly. I felt it was probably the exception rather than the rule.

Subtracted one star overall because the toilet paper was placed in the incorrect underhand position. Otherwise a nice place to stay.
