“I'll Be Back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

I've been to Corpus Christi several times on business and it's slim pickins' when it comes to a good place to stay. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for the first time and I was impressed! The hotel is about 3 years old - they have the Heavenly Beds, which are very comfortable, TV, microwave, and refrigerator. The room, specifically the bathroom, appeared very clean. The only thing I don't like (and always take note) is the coffee maker in the bathroom. Yuk! Yes, they have the cups wrapped in plastic, yet, it's still not sanitary to put a coffee maker in the bathroom. That being said, I would definitely stay here again as the staff was very nice, a breakfast was offered, and the place was clean!

Stayed here over labor day weekend with wife and two kids. Rooms are nice and clean. It's a little on the small side for a family of 4, but the location is excellent. Close to a lot of restaurants, and about a 30-40 minute drive to the Padre Island National Seashore.

The room has a microwave and small refrigerator. Breakfast is free, albeit a bit crowded in the morning. Wifi is free. We had a problem with the wired internet connection, which maintenance fixed immediately. The room even comes with 2 beds and pillows. What more can you ask for?

Just a couple of complaints. The airconditioning unit can be really loud when it turns on. And our room was facing the bar/grill (I forgot the name) next to the hotel, and the music (or whatever you call the muted sound coming from it) can be heard late at night.

Other than that, we had a great stay!

Pros: Newer hotel - room was clean - furnishings current - shower head very good. The hotel was filled with families but on the 4th floor, it was very quiet during the night - no parties, just sleeping children, I suppose! Staff was friendly, check-in relatively quick at 3 p.m. The internet connection was problem-free. You need an access code which expires every day.

Cons: Air conditioning unit in room was EXTREMELY NOISY and could not be adjusted in any way. The hallway temperature was 68 F but our room was more like 75 F. The refrigerator compressor was also noisy, and when both the AC and the fridge were synced-up on their cycles, the noise was disruptive to our sleep. The bed was elevated to the point where I had to hoist myself up onto it, and I am 5'8" tall. A shorter person might need a step-stool. The mattress was a pillow top but was too squishy for my liking. They give you a "soft" pillow and a "firm" pillow (labeled on the pillowcases) but neither is large enough to be comfortable. The soft pillow was too soft; the hard one was foam and much too hard.

The pool is large but the spa is very small. Would fit no more than 3 people and they'd better be good friends or family.

Neutral: The breakfast was adequate, but crowded because the hotel was full. The dining room is large but not large enough when there are so many families. The "omelets" (pre-made egg patties) had American cheese in the middle which was disgusting, and they were not hot. But there were other choices, including cereal (hot and cold), muffins and cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, etc. So I am not rating the hotel based on this. I think they were doing the best they could when so many were staying.

There is no bath tub in these rooms, just a large shower, so if you have kids that need a bath tub, you'll need another hotel.

There is one elevator and it is slow. It has loud chimes when you get in and out, so don't get a room near the elevator if you can help it.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor unless you want overhead noise. Neither side has a good view.

My wife and I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express for a weekend trip to the beach and were not disappointed. This hotel is not very old and is very nice. The rooms are clean and nicely trimmed out. They were equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, and a small sofa. The room also has a large shower which was nice as well. The breakfast area is a good size and includes hot breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful giving us a map of the town and information on things to do.

The only thing negative I can say about this hotel is that the street it is on is easy to miss. Oakhurst is a small street off the service road, and the easiest way to find it would be to look for Outback Steakhouse and Cracker Barrel restaurant, Oakhurst is between these two restaurants.

All and all I enjoyed this hotel and I will not hesitate to stay here again next time I'm in Corpus.

The front desk people are very nice. This is one of the newest remodeled ones, nice interior, nice room, nice lobby and breakfast area.
As mentioned in other reviews this hotel is not for those looking for a "view". It is simply to sleep, hang out and done. Their gym was small but perfect equipment. Pool area was small yet kept clean too. I'm picky, and it was good. The cost was a bit high, yet I booked last minute.
The address is hard to GPS... best to GPS the Hampton Inn address which is adjacent and shares a parking lot with them.

We stayed for 3 nights on our family vacation. We used trip advisor and stopped across the parking lot at the staybridge. The staff there was rude, so we tried this hotel. It was rated number two by trip advisor, but should be moved to the top! The staff was friendly and helpful. They gave us great suggestions for the best beaches and things to see in the area. Our room was clean with a tub, microwave and refrigerator. We had a double queen suite. This was our favorite hotel on the trip.

These three words and more sum up my recent stay at the HI express. This is my second stay at this location, and I don't have any bad things to say. Check in is easy, and fast. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The fitness center and business center are convenient. And the pool is great! It's quite large for an indoor pool and although it's hot outside, I bet the pool gets great usage year round. This hotel is conveniently located right off SPID - expressway and just minutes to abundant restaurants, the mall, the beach, downtown, or bayfront.
