“Average at best”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

First impression:
Typical hotel chain with independent owner/operators. Unusual front entryway. At first glance I thought it was the side entrance. Nothing grand about it.

Self parking. Good luck.. Take that for what it's worth. You'll see..

Check in:
Easy enough. Staff seemed nice. Kind that you interact with and forget them as soon as you walk away.

Small and very humid. But it's Corpus, what's new about that?

Spacious. Bed was comfortable. Not enough pillows. Room was warm despite the AC. Even on "high" fan speed, it was mediocre at best. Fortunately we had a ceiling fan over the bed.
Comes with a fridge, electric stove and microwave. Never used either.
Bathroom was ok. You could tell it was recently painted. Painters didn't even finish. The edges showed the contrast in the different colors, especially in the shower area. Plenty of hot water though. Shower head needed some good CLR or something. Weak streams at best. Not enough towels.

WiFi.. Depends what part of the bldg your at. I gave up and used the hotspot from my personal phone. Worked way better.

Pool is community with neighboring hotel. Medium size pool with small hot tub.. Mostly kids running around.
Short walk to the beach.(via the Holiday Inn grounds) Highly recommend..

Continental. Nuff said..

In Summary:
It's ok if your not expecting to be "Wowed". Perfect if you just need a place to crash and get up and go in the morning.

Note: I asked for a fan. They told me where to go buy one nearby.. Nice..

Room Tip: Corner rooms. You will hear your neighbors for sure.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the staff was wonderful!!! Views from our room of the beach were great! It is across the street from the beach. Safe area to be in. Lots of restaurants to choose from. We didn't mind but if you have kids and want to use the pool they share with the hotel next door. It is right out the front door to the outside pool. I have read that this hotel is outdated, however our room was really nice. The room does have a kitchen and a full sized refrigerator and if you stay a few days or more it would be a nice plus.

Room Tip: I would suggest an upper level room for the view!

The cleaning staff does an excellent job. The breakfast is better in institutions such as hospitals the good part is they don't charge for it. The staff working the desk does not care if you double park and has no solutions to not having any parking. We stayed 4 nights and every evening there were at least 2-3 cars double parked and no parking available. The staff at the desk reported there was nothing they could do about it "just try to find a place" after questioning the parking things went south from there. We would get to our room and our keys had been changed and we asked maid service to let us in and we would have to go back downstairs to have our keys recoded. Never an apology from staff for the inconvenience that happened 3-4 times. This property is managed by middle easterners

I first booked this hotel because I wanted a kitchen to save time and money on dining out. I read some reviews after booking the room and got nervous. I honestly don't know what hotel the people with bad reviews stayed at. We enjoyed our stay in a 2 queen suite. We were right across the street from the beach and could walk back and forth with ease. The kitchen was clean but could use a kitchen size trashcan instead of the small wastebasket. The kitchen could use more utensils and pots and pans. We kept the beds made and room straightened up on our own. We only had the housekeeper take away the trash and swap out the towels. The staff was friendly and polite. My daughters only ate the waffles at breakfast so I can't comment on the rest of it. We stocked up on groceries at HEB and ate breakfast and lunch in our room to keep from having to cleanup and go to town. I would stay in this hotel again and I would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor by the side door so were able to get in and out with no problems.
