Dear confirmedrealist: Thank for your taking the time to review the Holiday Inn Downtown Marina. I am sorry that your stay was not up to our normal high standards. As a full service Holiday Inn with a restaurant, Coastline Bistro we do not currently offer fridges in all our rooms however we have plenty for those who request it and our staff will happily deliver it to your room. Due to the humidity some of the air conditioners have condensation and we monitor them so that guests are not put into those rooms. Again please accept my deepest apologizes and your comments will be shared with the staff to help us improve our service and maintenance schedule. You will be happy to know that the hotel is undergoing a total renovation and will be the best product downtown Corpus Has to offer once complete.

Our stay was fantastic! The room was immaculate and spacious with great toiletries and coffee.
The location is great for seafood on the bay and the USS Lexington. The restaurant servers and front desk staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. This is a GREAT place to stay in Corpus Christi.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor bay-view

Dear Familyfromdallas: Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are delighted to hear that your stay was so enjoyable and that you got to enjoy our fantastic views of the Bay and Marina. As you are aware being a downtown hotel we are within walking distance of the USS Lexington, Texas State Aquarium, American Bank Center, What-a-burger field, Hurricane Alley and many other local attractions. I will pass along your comments to our staff and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time you are in Corpus Christi.

This is no longer an Omni. I got there just as it was changing to a Holiday Inn, and the whole place was a mess. Our reservations were mixed up and I got put into a room by the elevator after requesting a quiet room. It was so bad that had to go back downstairs with all my stuff and request a new room, something I never do. The staff was confused and overwhelmed to the point of being immobilized. This was not good, since a lot of people were staying there. The whole place seemed a little grungy and run down. The views were great, though, and this was a very convenient location. Still, if I had a choice I would not be coming back to this hotel.

Dear JWeb1865: Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience here at the Holiday Inn Downtown Marina. Please accept my deepest apologizes for the experience you had while staying at our hotel. As noted in your review we were converting over from an Omni to the Holiday Inn during your stay. We had several issues because of the transition and in hindsight should have handled things much differently. The transition was hard on the staff and guests alike. I am happy to report that the transition has been completed and everything is running smoothly (see recent reviews). We are now embarking on a complete renovation of the hotel which will make us Downtowns premier hotel. Please give us another chance when you return to Corpus Christi, you will not be disappointed.

They were very helpful and accomadating at checkin. Their prices were comparable. The rooms were clean and smelled good. The view of the bay was beautiful. The staff that we talked to were pleasant and friendly. Vallet parking is avail if you want it. Close to several good restaurants. Will definately stay there again!

We arrived here on Tuesday 16th April from San Antonio. We decided to stay here for 5 days to chill out and got a very good rate with William the front of house manager. As it states this hotel was an Omni Hotel until it changed to Holiday Inn in February. All the facilities are there to make this a great hotel, which include an indoor pool leading to outdoor on the 3rd floor, a good fitness room, sauna and a good restaurant not to mention some very good front desk staff including Henry, Victoria and William the front of desk manager. What lets this hotel down at the moment is the grubiness of the decor including the elevators, the rooms one of which we had on the 17th Floor with no access to the balcony outside, but the room was okay but the carpets were very stained and the window looking out onto the bay had condensation every day running down onto the floor. I would recommend the restaurant for breakfast as there is a fantastic choice, also the hotel is well placed for the sea front, restaurants as well as the attractions which include USS Lexington and the Aquarium. The Trolley bus from outside the hotel does a circuit of the Corpus Christi bay up to the Lexington and the Aquarium and for 75c it is a bargain. The security officer in the car park was a young lady who was delightful and was always cheerful and assured us our Harleys would be safe in the car park. All in all I would recommend the hotel because of the very good staff there but do not expect the Ritz at this time. I also believe prices for staying there reflect the fact that it is not yet up to ICH standard. Given time it will be great.

Room Tip: We were on the 17th Floor overlooking the bay and the higher you are the more you are able to see.

We typically select Marriott hotels- but this experience surpassed all others! Check in was flawless and Amanda was extremely professional, welcoming and informative! The room was clean, beds comfortable and the view was amazing! Surprised to see a General Manager welcoming guests in the lobby on a weekend and making sure everyone's stay was enjoyable. The bar service was pleasant and the breakfast was prepared to perfection with consistent excellent customer service each day. We were told it would soon be remodeled- cannot wait to visit again! The torches outside also added an element of distinction from all other Marina hotels. The indoor / outdoor pool is so trendy; the sauna is a nice feature also!

Room Tip: Splurge on a suite! It is worth the view, the space and the convenience of all of the added ameniti...

We just had our 55th High School Reunion at this hotel (it was recently purchased from Omni). We were concerned that the accomodations and service would not be the same but were so very impressed by all. Every person we worked with went the 'extra mile' for each of us. Our event was so much more than we expected. The food was the best any of us have ever experienced with such a large quanty being served. The chef was the best as was the chocolate cake for desert. All this for over 150 people...seated. It is my understanding the rooms are to be renovated in the near future beginning from the top, down. They were not in the best state but the staff can not be beat at any hotel in the world! Thanks Holiday Inn.

Room Tip: We were on the pool level and had a door opening to the pool area. Part of the pool is indoors and...
