The employees are friendly and hotel is clean. We stayed for six days and enjoyed every minute of it. The beach is about a three minute walk from the hotel. They have a pool opened until 11:00 PM. They have an outdoor shower so you can remove the sand.

These guys saved our family after booking.com lost our reservation at another location. The front desk agent kept calm and confident while my husband and I were at each others throats from this stressful situation. He was so helpful, honest and professional. He was a fairly young guy but I can't remember his name, I know it was 3 letters. I complained about the tenants above us on our second night a cheer competition was in town practicing on our ceiling. The GM came right away and to witness the issue and took care of it immediately. She was so sweet I felt bad for saying anything. The walk to the beach was a bit inconvient but overall Holiday inn was a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Stay away from the end rooms or by a door to the stairwell. The doors slam loudly and WiFi is terrib...

We ended up here after leaving the roach motel down the road about a mile(Windwater). This holiday in was a little pricey but was well worth the stay. Rooms are extremely clean, staff was very helpful and did everything possible to keep it safe. They even give bands for pool use so they know if you belong there or are a freeloader. Breakfast was VERY good and we highly recommend this stay that's only a block from the beach.

This hotel was perfect for our weekend getaway! The front desk was courteous amd understanding when we checked in and realized we accidentally booked a smoking room. The beach was conveniently a short walk so my husband took our daughter boogie boarding while I rested at the hotel after a long day at work. Enjoyed hanging out at the pool after a day at schlitterbahn. We were also able to visit Turtle Inc which was also across the street.

This is a very nice place to stay in South Padre Island. It isn't right on the beach, but the beach is only a short walk away - less than 5 minutes. We chose the hotel because the price was lower than those directly on the beach. The staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful. The room was neat, clean, and comfortable. The hotel also offers a free breakfast, which also helped save money. The pool area was also nice and clean. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed two nights here last week and found it a nice, decent place to stay. Rooms were clean, pool area was nice. Employees were friendly and otherwise no problems. The hotel isn't right on the beach but it's just a short walk away. We chose this hotel because of the lower price and because it was a trusted chain hotel. We are suspicious of hotels we've never heard of so we usually chose chains. It comes with a free breakfast, which is "okay". Breakfast items weren't great (quality) but it got the job done. Overall it's a decent place, clean and in a nice location. We didn't have any problems with anything and staff were friendly. The only very minor negative that I noticed was that as rewards members, we expected a better room (corner room or better location than non members who pay for same type rooms) and that didn't happen. As Marriott rewards members we always get better-located rooms without asking! Marriott has spoiled us.

Room Tip: If a hotel offers it, sign up for their free rewards membership. You'll get more perks like late...
