Until Aug. 15 the Holiday Inn Beach Resort, South Padre Island, Tex., is selling a $99 value package (three nights, four days, up to four persons in a room--with coupons for 50% off for lunch or dinner). The vacation special, however, must be used from Sept. 6, 1988, through Feb. 28, 1989. The hotel is right on the beach. Its toll-free number is (800) 531-7405.
We have a bulging file of Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips columns and have had many an enjoyable trip thanks to its recommendations.
