“Price Is Right”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

I found the hotel to be good/average, but the price bumps it up to 4 stars.

We only stayed one night and did not take advantage of the breakfast or pool. Our room smelled a little musty, because the fridge did not close all the way. But, once we turned the AC on, the odor went away. Otherwise the room was clean and in good order. Yes, the area might not be the prettiest and we saw several low-income people down the street during the day, but I wasn't afraid of my car being broken into or anything (besised your car can be broken into anywhere). I might not stay there for a week, but for a weekend trip to the beach and a place to sleep, you can't beat the price.

The rooms are ok and clean. You got a microwave, refridgerator and a coffe maker. Breakfast is good. Waffles, toast, coffee, cereals. The service could be better. Location is near the highway and you can reach everything really quick. The price is fair.

Room was good size, smelled nice, and very very clean. All staff were pleasant. Not a lot of breakfast options, but hey, for the price can't complain. Parking was fine, wi-fi was decent, pool very small. The only downside to this clean, comfy place is the poor area it is in and some of the people that stayed were a little loud. It is also a bit of a drive down to the beaches. Overall I'd still recommend it just because it was so surprisingly clean, cheap, pet friendly, and the free breakfast snacks.

Stayed two nights beginning of August. Room was comfortable, Pool was very small. Standard continental breakfast, but breakfast room only had 3 tables, so we were left waiting for a table on a busy weekend. Limited parking, cars getting to the hotel later at night had to hope for a space. Staff was friendly and attentive to every need. If you are going to a Hooks game, this is a great location as it was just down Port Ave. Take this hotel and place it in a different location, and would stay there anytime. Where it sits, I probably won't be back.

I and my 2 kids stayed here for 2 nights the last week of July 2013 for a quick getaway to Corpus Christi, and Padre Island. The hotel though older is well maintained and clean. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was acceptable. The only downside to the stay was the neighborhood in which the property is located. It lies between I 37 and Leopard St., 2 miles from the Bay. While driving to the hotel via Leopard street after midnight, I witnessed 1 prostitute working a street corner 1 block south of the hotel. The next block next to a gas station/corner store next to the hotel, I witnessed a street level drug deal being made. I'm not someone with an overactive imagination. I've been a city police officer for over 30 years. Liked the hotel, hated the location. Will not be staying here in the future.

They cleaned my room well every day and said "no problem" when I asked for extra pillows or towels. I had easy access to both the 286 Crosstown and I-37 Bayfront, from this location. I like being able to park right in front of the room and look out at the car. They offered many choices for breakfast but I just grabbed a quick muffin and coffee. It was a comfortable four days.

During the summer months when I visit Corpus I usually stay here. All other clean hotels are over 100 bucks/night with less amenities.
I have stayed here at least 4 times and was pleased that the front desk welcomed me back for my yearly visit.

Room: Clean king bed room with fridge/microwave, lotion, shampoo, conditioner. Nice fluffy towels. Not those cheapy things that hurt your skin to use. I swear it was the same guys hanging out in the parking lot drinking beer out of the back of their pick up that were there last year lol. It doesn't bother me as the pool area closes at 10 and there's no patio type area for them to hang out outdoors.

Pool: Small pool but always kept clean. Most folks are here for the beach so it's never too crowded except afer 7pm or so. I usually head back from the beach around 5 and have a few hours with the pool pretty much to myself

Wi-fi: Not sure if I mentioned before but depending on the time of day, the wifi connection was spotty. Lots of can't display page, this page timed out due to.. etc. This has been the case every visit but every time I always forget to tell the desk as I use my computer for email checking primarily and that's it.
Breakfast: Not really worth getting up for. They don't want you to take anything to your room which is ok. Muffins, waffle maker, juice, coffee. Go check out breakfast downtown somewhere.
Check-out: quick and efficient as always. Got the requisite 'see ya next year' from the staff.
