“Not what we expected for an ocean view!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Don't let the statement "ocean view" throw you. This hotel is across the street from the ocean. Not only is the view from a window, not a balcony but you look over the parking lot of the hotel on Oceanside and the dune. The staff was very friendly but we upgraded to a room with a balcony and were sent to a 4th floor room that was under maintenance then had to move to the 3rd floor. We were there to take the youngest to school so we didn't spend a lot of time at the beach otherwise we would have been very disappointed. We will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn Express Oceanfront on our next visit.

3rd time I've stayed here and maybe the last.

The staff was professional, nice, & welcoming. Beach is in close proximity.

The room was somewhat clean and somewhat dirty. Had to immediately call for housekeeping to come clean microwave oven. Previous guest left it dirty and with food. The room has a very dated decor and the furniture seemed pretty banged up. Stains on couch, and a thick layer of dust on ceiling fan above. A/C tool a long time to cool off room. Never used the pool as the water looked cloudy each day we went outside.

Room Tip: Spend as little time in room as possible

We spent a great deal of time at our hotel, coming and going, meeting up with family, etc. Very comfortable room and bed. somewhat clean upon arrival. after staying a few days you notice it's not that clean but due to the extreme humidity, you can understand that could be a challenge. complimentary breakfast was good, different items each day so there was variety. eggs, waffles, pastries, cereal, bagels, muffins, etc. pool was nice. only real complaint was our key cards quit working several times during our stay. had to get new ones or get housekeeping to let us in. overall, it was a pleasant stay. good family hotel, not crowded at all. access to the beach was walking across the street and through the holiday inn parking lot. not a problem.

Room Tip: pick the 4th floor for a view.

Where do I begin...first of all, on a positive note, the staff was very nice. Beds were comfortable and a/c worked well. However, the suite that we got upon arrival, oh my!!!! The first thing we saw as we opened the door was the stained sofa sleeper. Spots on the cushions. The ceiling fan had a layer of dust on it. Looked down and noticed the carpet had stains. The carpet needed vacuuming, there was dust on corners and noticed a piece of candy on the floor corner. A sweet n low wrapper next to sofa sleeper. The windows were filthy. I asked for another suite and they were very nice about it, the manager switched us to another room. That room was slightly better, BUT still dirty. We didn't want to make a big deal so we just took that room. The bathroom tub tiles had scum as though the shower is not being cleaned or scrubbed. The curtain shower had yellow on the bottom where it gets wet, yuk!!! Bathroom also smelled like urine. The toilet base was dirty. The carpet throughout the suite needed cleaning. Kitchen counter had particles, dust and a candy wrapper on the corner as of they didn't wipe from previous guests. Our experience was just awful. We had never stayed in a hotel that was as dirty as this one. Everything about this hotel was just dirty. Even though we were across the street from the beach, I'd never stay here again. I should have read the reviews before booking there. Words of advice, if you are particular about where you stay, this is not the place for you. You will not be happy......

It is just OK. But so are most of the other hotels on Padre. I think the cleaning / maid service is suspect, as I noticed the room's carpet had not been vacuumed. This was evident by the previous guest's clothing tags still present on the carpet, and by moving the bed skirts and observing the crud around the bed. To me, that sort of sloppy cleaning always makes me wonder what else is not clean. But the rooms are decently appointed, and the beds comfortable enough. The hot breakfast fare is aweful. So many of the Choice properties are starting to serve what looks like some industrialized animal food. They had some sort of egg white patty, cold biscuits, and the usual nasty turkey sausage patties. I have noticed they have also eliminated the English Muffins at many of the properties, - my favorites. Must be some sort of corporate cost saving effort. And they are all using the flimsiest plastic ware I have even tried to use. It's ridiculously cheap and flimsy to be even called forks, knives, or spoons.
But other than that - the hotel is decent enough for a night or two.

This was an average hotel. We were on the bottom floor and it was a little noisy at night but our room was big with a king size bed. It was a very short walk to a very nice clean beach. You could not see the beach from the lower stories of the hotel. The hotel across the street that is right on the beach has a great walk through with showers that anyone can use.

Hotel was clean, linens clean, and AC was cold. We were there 3 nights. Breakfast was good each morning: bacon, eggs, waffles, etc. Very close to the beach. Just walk across the street and down a path. However, I will say for $12 you can get a year around beach parking permit and park right on the beach. Great if you have kids toys, towels, umbrella, cooler. You can drive on the beach free but need a permit to park. Why walk and carry when you can drive and park. Location was great for area attractions. The only negative: we were promised and charged for an ocean view room; however, when we got there we did not get an ocean view and no reduction in room rate. Very disappointed, but we didn't stay in room much. Elevator broke one day but obtained a part and had it back working the next day. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better view of ocean but need to guarantee ocean view if you pay for it.
