I attended a master naturalist seminar in Rockport over the past weekend, and most of the participants stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. So, I did too. I wasn't expecting much but found the best Holiday Inn Express I have experienced anywhere. Sparkling clean with a sense of newness everywhere. The breakfast buffet was far better than average; the rooms clean and comfortable, with excellent bedding and good lighting for reading. And, it was right across a small bay from one of the best family beaches in Texas - literally within a long walk of a good marine museum and the local aquarium as well. I doubt few persons actually go to Rockport for business (birding yes but business no) but this is a budget hotel worth emulating elsewhere.
