Great access to beach

Pros: Conveniently located to all
Cons: Hot tub out of order & draft selections at bar
Location: Beach and restaurant pier, golf cart rentals,local restaurants as well
We once again enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this to all our friends and families. The Breakfast morning needs more prompt staffing, others before us had been waiting to take they're order, much less get they're drinks.

North Padre Island

Pros: Location to the Gulf and the beach.
Cons: More on site eating options.
Location: Padte Island National Sea Shore. 68 miles of beach you can drive on.
Great location right on the Gulf (think waves) and right on the beach. Reasonable priced food on site and lots of options near.

On the beach and friendly staff, but drawbacks

Pros: The location and staff.
Cons: Deeper cleaning and repair (room 603).
Location: Beach walking, J.B.'s German Bakery, bird watching (visit Malaquite Beach for a list of birding areas), Live music in Port Aransas.
We stayed a week over Thanksgiving. I think on-the-beach hotels don't have to try as hard. The staff was lovely but the room was a little run down. The shower handle fell off every time we turned it on. It took a surprisingly long time to get cool water in the sink. And the arms of the wooden chairs in the room were sticky and stained. All tolerable because I wanted to be on the beach, but cleanliness details can make a big difference. It is also a little isolated, we had to drive everywhere we wanted to go.

A good location for beach lovers

Cons: Our hotel room window needed cleaning, but it's understandable considering the hotel is right on the beach.
Hotel location is right on the beach, which is perfect for beach lovers. We really liked that we could walk out of the hotel's front door and walk onto the Padre Island beach in a few steps. The hotel pools were nice, too, being located where you could look out onto the beach and the Gulf waters. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

it was ok

Cons: Noisy
The location is good, next to the beach so you dont have to walk far. The bar is close to the hotel and beach, reasonalby priced drinks and beer. The food at the lower lobby is ok, but not the best service, they seem to be understaffed, food takes forever to come out even thought there were only three tables taken. The beds need to be replaced, they were hard as a rock and I still have a back ache from the stay. the pillows are hard as a rock too. I stayed during sprink break so the price of the room was too high for the value.

Hotel Staff did a great job along with the hotel's ammentities.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Nothing close
Everyone did a good job to please. Staff was excellent. Price could have been a lower charge because the rooms were not fully booked. Probably should have been $20-30 dollars less expensive that the cost of the rooms that I paid for (3) nights stay. Overall, I would rate this very positive in my opinion.

Staff is extremely friendly.

Kids eat free in restaurant. Pizza was delicious. It is a fun atmosphere, right on the beach plus 2 pools and a hot tub. Tiles in pool could use a good cleaning though, and baby pool was very dark at night. Needs lighting. Overall, we love it there and go at least once during the summer for several nights. Live music on Sat and Sun, but should include Fri night as well.

O.K. but some things to think about.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: no shade around pools., no beach chairs.
My family and I stayed at this hotel in April 2012. We wanted to be on the beach and have a hotel that had a swimming pool. This hotel has two pools but only has around twenty chairs around it. There is no shade in the pool area or on the hotel grounds. The hotel sits beachfront with a boardwalk in front of it then the beach. The hotel has no chairs or umbrellas for hotel guests to use on the beach. The beach in front of the hotel is public and does get busy with people parking their cars on the beach. We reserved a ocean view suite. The hotel considers a suite to be a normal hotel room with a small refrigerator and microwave. It was not a suite! The only positive about the room was the balcony and new mattresses. If we go to North Padre again we will not be staying in this hotel.

This hotel did not make us feel welcome.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, very comfy beds
Cons: staff
We arrived at the hotel and after checking into our room (which was adequate) went to check out the beach. This was our first experience with this part of the gulf. We usually go to Florida. I was disappointed with all the seaweed on the shore. It was gross! I realize that Holiday Inn does not control the seaweed, but it does seem like they would clear it off. I also noticed that there was no where to sit and saw that all their lounge chairs were stacked up, chained and locked. I asked at the front desk if they were going to be unlocked and she said not for a few more weeks! WHAT?! We went back up to our room and found that our room keys did not work so we went back down and had them replaced. We went back up and one worked but the other did not. We made quite a few trips up and down before getting 2 out of 3 that worked,...SOMETIMES! We arrived on a Wednesday night and on Saturday we went site seeing and when we returned we notice the place is packed and now we need to have a parking permit, but we can only have one per room so our other car has to moved to the street! Plus now I guess because the important guests have arrived, they decide to unlock the beach chairs. So much for customer service. We will not return to this hotel.
