Quality Inn & Suites on the Beach
Ranked #51 of 80 Hotels in Corpus Christi
Reviewed 9 June 2010

Our stay was terrible. Rooms are tiny; not worth the extra $ for beachfront. Bathrooms are very dingy with mold and roaches. Rooms smell very bad and the corridors have no A/C. There are no elevators in the hotel. Pictures on the website are very not accurate. Cars in parking lot were very loud and alarms kept going off all night. Hotel needs major renovations and upkeep.
Would never ever stay again.

After reading the negative reviews, I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. I wanted to stay on the beach and the only other good one was the Radisson, but their price was exorbitant. With a senior discount, we paid $72 + tax. The only bad thing was that we were on the first floor with a parking lot view and when we looked out the window, people were walking by and they could see us. We were only there for 1 night, but it had a frig and microwave, which would be good for people staying longer. There was a free full breakfast, a huge pool and hot tub and a meeting room and I got to walk in the sand without paying the $12 beach parking permit and the hotel had free parking. It also had a laundry room. I would stay there again.

I had called before we booked the room to make sure that the portable crib we had would fit, was told it would so we didn't book a suite. There's a reason why they don't show the rooms on their website: they suck! We got to the room and it was TINY. After trying to rearrange some of the crappy furniture so our daughter wasn't up against the TV or the insanely loud A/C unit, we wedged her crib between the bed and the wall so I had to crawl around her to get to sleep. Challenging, considering the bed was so old you could feel--and hear--every spring in it. The bathroom was so small that it didn't even have room for a toilet paper dispenser; they just left us some sitting on top of the tank. The first night we complained and the woman at the desk basically told me I was out of luck but said she'd talk to the manager. If she did, I never heard about it because I never got to talk to anybody. We would have left and stayed somewhere else but there was a high school convention or something going on and everything nearby was sold out. We had a courtyard/pool view, which was nice except for the screaming kids out there at all hours of the night and the seagulls waking us up at dawn. The thin walls of the hotel and the shoddy construction of the balcony and its door (ours had no frame and sunlight came in through the whole door handle). The regular pool is nice, the kiddie pool was always filthy. The beach is the bay, not the Gulf, so it is a lot calmer but the sand has lots of rocks and shells.

The breakfast was OK but if you stay more than a day or two it gets old because they don't change out any of the food; also there's always a looooong line to make yourself a waffle, and that line blocks pretty much the rest of the food and the plates. Sometimes they don't even bother restocking items even when they're supposed to be serving breakfast for several more hours.

We stayed four nights and got housekeeping once. Some days they came crazy early and other days they weren't even near our room by 2 pm. We had to complain several times about the teenagers in the room next door and the hotel always responded promptly. To be fair, though, the kids may not have been all that loud--the guy in the next room clearing his throat , because of the super thin walls, was loud enough to wake us up. When we were checking out I found out that we were charged for using the in-room safe but when I mentioned it, the desk clerk took it off our bill.

I truly feel like because this hotel is so near great Corpus Christi attractions, they feel like people are going to stay here regardless of the condition of the rooms and service. Prove them wrong! Stay somewhere else!

Great location...close to everything. Hotel Staff was very helpful, even upgraded our room to overlook the beach/gulf. Room was very comfortable & clean and appeared to be newly remodeled. Provided I would say an expanded continental breakfast! Will absolutely stay here again!

This was our 3rd year staying here and I can say the "Quality" decreases by the year! We had to be moved to 3 rooms before finding an acceptable one..and that one was awful...bad smelling carpet, filthy bathroom floors, cobwebs, dust everywhere..it is too bad. The staff is friendly enough, the location great..why these owners want/allow this condition is comletely confusing..try looking elsewhere before booking here!
We will NOT by staying again!!!

Would not recommend this hotel. The 1st room we were in had dead ants in the bathtub and on the windowsill. The 2nd room had cobwebs with tiny spiders in the corner behind the table. There was also a (dead?) roach there.
Our tv remote didn't work. Our key didn't work, but maintenance
repaired it promptly. There are better places to stay in Corpus!

The Quality Inn & Suites on the Beach in Corpus Christi provided a wonderful atmosphere for our much needed vacation. Although the room we were in was an older part of the facility, we had a bayview room with a balcony provides a close and clear view of the Gulf. The price was great, also, and with Quality Inn's affiliation with Choice Privileges, provides quality at great value. The room was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. The door to the balcony was a bit swollen from the sea moisture, but closed well and gave us a feeling of protection. Good breakfast provided, very clean swimming pool, and supurb access within walking distance to the Lexington, Texas Aquarium, Texas Art Museum and the Texas Museum of Science and History. A great "Go To" place.
