“NEVER AGAIN. WANT RATS WITH YOUR SNACKS? YOU WILL NOT SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!”
Reviewed 20 April 2009

After driving 10 hours from Dallas to Corpus (very bad rain storm) we got to the hotel about 10.30pm. Fell asleep about 11.30pm. Was woken up at 1am by loud laughter and talking. The noise was coming from right outside the lobby front doors. My room was right above the lobby, room 208. Called down stairs and asked to ask the people out front to lower their voices. Front desk told me they have a right to smoke outside and that they are not being loud at all and suggest I close my window, which was not open. I told him that I have not problem with people smoking , that my window was not open and that they are loud and woke me up. Waited 10 minutes, called again to front desk and let the guy know exactly what their conversation was about. He said, "Oh", and it was quite after that. Second night I thought I was being smart and bought some wax ear plugs. At 4am I was woken up by a big thud from the room upstairs. Took my ear plugs out and they were having a party. Loud laughing, stomping on the floor and very loud talking. Called again down stairs and same guy on duty said he would take care of it. The noise finally stopped at 6am. As I was leaving the hotel, what I thought was a mouse ran across the hall into the work out room with 3 guys chasing it. I asked if it was a mouse and they said no, a rat. I come to Corpus at least three times a year and always stay in Holiday Inn hotels. Well this weekend there was an air show so there were slim picks for hotels, but thought we would give this one a try since they are owned by Holiday Inn. WRONG. DON'T EVER STAY HERE, UNLESS YOU LIKE GETTING NO SLEEP AND RATS!

We stayed there for 2 nights while on vacation. It's a very nice relatively new hotel with comfortable beds and full kitchens. The swimming pool is not huge but is deeper than most hotel pools that we've swum in. But it is right on the corner of 2 highways and overlooks a motor bank and highway overpasses. The only do housekeeping once a week but you can take sheets or towels to the desk and exchange them for fresh ones. It does have a nice laudromat that's free, but if you want to do clothes do them in the morning or afternoon because at night it gets very full and you'll have to wait. This was one of the all around nicer hotels we've stayed at in Corpus and I would recommend it, but it does seem more tailored to business travelers than vacationers.

  • Liked — Full kitchen with full size refrigerator-freezer.
  • Disliked — No daily housekeeping.

WOW! What a great hotel and for a great price! We only needed one night but I would love to stay here again. So many great things to mention....very clean room, great ammenities include full sized fridge, microwave, sink, nice bathroom, super comfy beds. I also used the laundry facilites which were great....and FREE!! I just had to buy some laundry soap and could use the washers and dryers for free...what a great thing! They also have a little "shop" where you can buy soda, water, snacks, laundry stuff, toothpaste, etc and other things like that. And it is on the honor system!! Where do you find that in this day? The prices were pretty reasonable there too. I was very impressed with this hotel!
