Decided to go down to Corpus Christi since I've never been before. Stayed here because it was close to the beach.
Now the beach isn't a Miami Beach, Florida with turquoise waters but it was pretty nice for what it was. Had a long pier that was cool to walk to the end of and get splashed by water...oh, word of advice, if you plan to do that, hold the rail because that concrete is very slippery.
Had to go to this gas station Stripes in order to get a parking pass for the beach that is good for a year.
But back to the hotel. Check in was pretty smooth. I'm a talker, so I like to ask a bunch of random questions like how is the weather here, do you get hurricanes, stuff like that. And the clerk answered / entertained me. She gave us maps to the city and which route to take in order to see the expensive beach front houses.
Room was very clean. I took picks and posted it for my Facebook and Instagram friends / followers.
They had a pool but it was kinda small but we spent our time at the beach. Oh, and when we got out the water, we were dirtier than we were before we got in it. Just a bunch of sea stuff. Oh, and fish were jumping out the water all around us.
The breakfast in the morning was pretty good and enough for everyone.
As far as restaurants, we went to some chicken place across the street and they were closing, I ordered like a 7pc chicken tender meal and they just went ahead and gave me all of them that they had, so I spent like $6 and came back to the room with about 30 pieces and 10 biscuits. Hahahaha. They also had a Sonic. But it wasn't much food right there in the area. It wasn't until we were leaving and passed the mall that I started seeing all the major restaurants.
I'd come back and stay there again!
