“Business trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Excellent check in process. Clerk gave us $24.00 in coupons to Joe's Crab Shack since I had three rooms. Everyone was friendly, smiling, and helpful. Only problem towels were in short supply and had to call twice for them. They were always warm so I guess they were having a run on towels this weekend. Also could not get a cart myself to bring all my stuff down in one trip with out having to have a bell hop and didn't have time to wait. Would stay again. Desk staff was always great and knew their jobs well. Saltwater pool was nice. Dry sauna worked well. Very service driven. Yes stay here, you won't be disappointed.

I'm glad you enjoyed your recent stay with us. We should have our towel issue resolved and just received a large shipment over the weekend. We are also in the process of purchasing smaller carts for guest so that we always have something available to them.

Stayed here two nights in June while attending a conference a couple of blocks away. I stayed here due to my IHG loyalty program. If I was by myself and needed to be downtown, I would possibly go ahead and stay here again. But, I would not bring my family here.

Customer service at the front desk was excellent! Friendly staff at check-in.

The doors to the balconies are locked - what's up with this? If they are afraid of jumpers or A/C being wasted, why isn't the Omni that is two blocks away. Some hotels like this have a system that cuts off the A/C if the balcony door stays open longer than a certain period of time. I could only imagine the disappointment that would have been on my kids' faces if they had been with me, but not able to go out onto the balcony to look at Corpus Christi Bay, watch sunrise, or see the ships and barges going in and out of the ship channel.

The rooms are average sized for a hotel of this age - dating back 30 years or more. I have stayed here a few times over the past 20 years or so, as it has changed names (Sheraton, Omni, now Holiday Inn). It is not improving as time goes on.

Internet in rooms was spotty, especially at the end of the corridor where my room was.

The room was somewhat dark, with limited lighting. But, everything worked well.

The location is very good - walking distance to several restaurants, special events center, and the seawall.

Just a heads-up - parking is $10 per day in an adjacent garage.

If you are looking for a fun, hotel overlooking the bay, look elsewhere, at least until they unlock the balcony doors.

The front desk staff was rude. I put stuff in the room and went for more. I was only gone long enough to ride the elevator 4 floors grab stuff from my premium in front of the door parking space. A maintenance man was in the room claiming to change a light bulb, but I clearly interrupted him going through my bag. The second day something was stolen from my room while I was in a conference.

When I pulled up to the hotel, I was positive that this would be a good place to stay considering the outside and lobby area were nice. However, I was wrong. After the first night, I cancelled the reservation for the remainder of the week and went to another hotel. Paying $10-$15 for parking after paying $250 for a room is ridiculous. Actually paying $250 for a room at this establishment is appalling. The air conditioner leaks onto the carpet which I'm assuming means there is a nice mold infestation. There is not a refrigerator or microwave which is extremely inconvenient considering I always have leftovers. To make up for it, the hotel does provide an extremely overpriced menu and room service the requires a $2 delivery charge and 18% gratuity in addition to tax. The rooms are tiny which has me perplexed as to why it was so dirty. The staff is rude and extremely unfriendly. An employee almost trampled my toddler because she was too busy gossiping to her coworker. Never got an apology, in fact, they started laughing and kept walking.This is by far the worst hotel I've had to stay in and you couldn't pay me to go back to this dump. The look of the outside was, most definitely, deceiving.

This hotel is dirty. Do not fall for the "we are under construction"excuse. I mean their rooms are dirty. Mine was gross. I stayed on the 20th floor, which the front desk bragged was "remodeled." The bathroom was dirty, with water on the counter, mildew all over the tb surround, and hair in the drain. I misplaced my phone at one point and had to search the room. I found many gross objects under bed edges and under desk. The staff is rude and the hotel allows some very foul-mouthed locals to hang out in the bar. I was harassed rtrying to watch a spurs game in the bar because our rooms did not carry that channel. The bartender did nothing to help me. Do not stay here. I did not see the pool or restaurant, but I was with a large group that had bad experiences in those areas as well.

This is the worse hotel, I ever stayed. Came to have fun on a extended family trip. Rooms weren't assigned correctly. The rooms are dirty. There are stains on the carpet and sheets. The bathrooms are dirty and not cleaned of serviced. Tile has mole. AC units drip. Lamp shade had mole as well.

I moved to another hotel and to top it off they charged my hotel, I will be contacting corporate on this. Runaway from this place as fast as you can.

I've stayed at several Holiday Inns Express´s before but this is the first time in a long time I've stayed at a plain ol' Holiday Inn and I must say I was disappointed. It was clean and the staff was friendly but it lacks anything to set it apart. One of the first things you notice in your room is that your balcony door doesn't open anymore. This was done for your safety and comfort at least according to the sticker on the door. There was no continental breakfast but there was a breakfast buffet for $15 dollars, which I rid not avail myself of. The AC vent in my room started to have condensation form on and drip onto the carpet.
To enter the parking garage yout have to pass through the front entrance where everyone is dropping their cars off for valet parking. It wouldn't be that bad if they also didn't park their van there. Which ends up blocking the outside lane. So you ensure up waiting 5-10min just to park your own car.
All and all if you're looking for a place that's clean and you're staying for a single night, this place will work. But if you're looking for a place that has a few more ammenities, keep looking.
