“Texas hospitality”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

The staff and management at the Country Inn could not have been nicer. Several of us native Corpus Christians were visiting from out of town for a family funeral and they were most accommodating about helping us find our way around and even letting us use their breakfast area for a reception, as Bcpianoman said. From the manager, to the receptionist and the breakfast staff, their kindest went above and beyond, and makes me wonder why I ever left Texas! They even provide cookies and iced tea in the lobby. Ask them for their lemonade-flavored ice tea recipe! I definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

It's rare today to find a hotel so caring about their guests. We were in town for a funeral, and had no place for a small reception afterwards. The staff and hotel manager Betty Knight-Tapia offered to help. They graciously allowed our family to use the breakfast area afterwards to mingle and greet out of town friends. Not only were our rooms nice and clean, the service of the staff and compassion was beyond belief. Country Inn & Suites will be my first choice when traveling and looking for rooms. Thanks again for your kindness and generosity.

We stayed at the Country Inn and suites from the middle of December to January 2013 - 2014 so our stay was over Christmas. Our flight came in very early in the morning so we were there 6 hours before check in with nowhere else to go. Rather than make us wait till then they had our room ready they gave us an upgrade to a bigger room with more facilities as it was ready to go. The hotel public areas were spotless and the room was spotless. Breakfast every morning served by the same friendly lady, always with a smile on her face and nothing is too much trouble. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any of the staff, even when it came to us needing to phone our credit card company back in England. If its a warm, friendly, relaxed kind of place your looking for in Corpus Christi, we personally recommend the Country Inn and suites. 10 out of 10 from Mr & Mrs Naranjo in England, thank you

I stayed at this hotel for seven days while vacationing in Corpus Christi. My first three nights were great, but on the fourth night all hell broke loose. After enjoying their jacuzzi I wanted to take a shower. I get in the tub turn on the water and ice cold water is the only water that comes out even on its hottest setting. After three hours of waiting on hot water, I called the front desk and was told that the only thing they could do was switch rooms. I was also told that the cold water issue happens from time to time. My husband and I had many items in the room. We did not want to switch to another room with cold water only, so I took a cold shower. After putting on some clothes I came out of the restroom to find my husband struggling to kill a huge (and very fast) cockroach. After our battle with the bug he called and asked to switch rooms. While leaving we opened the small fridge to grab our food and sodas and a roach crawled from out of the fridge as well!!!!! We trashed what we had in the fridge and went to the front desk to get the new room key. Upon entering our new room we noticed it was FREEZING in the room. Someone accidentally left the ac unit on. I quickly turned it off and turned on the heat settings so we wouldn't be cold all night, but the heat was not working. We were cold all night. After complaining to an assistant manager, we were told we would be refunded for our night from hell. I was never contacted back by the assistant manager about our refund, so I had to go through Cheapoair (who we love) about our refund. Cheapoair contacted the hotel got the refund processed and prevented us from being blown off. Moral of my story Cheapoair goes above and beyond for its customers but STAY AWAY FROM THE COUNTRY INN & SUITES IN CORPUS CHRISTI. It's a little piece of hell on earth.

The staff is very friendly and does their best to make you feel at home. We usually stay at La Quinta but decided to stay at Country Inn because of the location (shopping etc). The rooms are and the dresser drawers are smaller than La Quinta's. The breakfast buffet has a large variety and the "living room" area is very "comfy".
