“pleasant and relaxing”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

Although some reviews have complained about noise and break-ins, etc, our stay was very nice. Good location for walking to either restaurants or the marina and friendly staff. No noise but it was early in the week. Free breakfast on the 11th floor was a nice touch. If the elevators are slow, then take the stairs and get some exercise.

Room Tip: company website had better internet rates at the time of our booking

First room we got had a/c problem. Second room we got had pair of dirty socks and toe nail clipping from previous guest. Manager was hard to get in touch with but gave us offers and points. Would rather have had the first night comped for all the trouble or next night so we stayed somewhere else second night. Good view and breakfast though.

I stayed at this hotel while on a business trip to Corpus Christi. My accomodations were booked by someone else so I knew very little about the hotel prior to arrival. I was greeted by a very courteous and accomodating staff and that level of interaction continued througout my stay. The hotel is older with many of the trademaks of an older hotel , structurally. ( ie..soundproofing-specially in bathrooms, a/c and ease of internet connectivity) However, I will say for as structurally dated as this building is, they have done a good job at remodelling, upkeep and cleaanliness. The views and access to
the water from my room were great! This is a Best Western ...not a Westin or Noble House.
The fitness center was adequately equipped, however as a woman I would suggest maybe glass doors to the hallway...it felt a bit isolated and risky, although a keycard is needed for entrance.
My experience was tainted as I left and discovered that my car had been broken into and burgalarized while parked on site. The staff was very polite and tried to be accomodating, yet I felt a bit embarassed for them as it was obviously not the first time that they have had this issue and were not sure he apologetic for something that was obviously not an anomily and clearly posted as a risk.

My family and I stayed in Corpus for 3 nights on one of our trips this summer. We stayed here 2 of those nights and loved it. The beds were so comfortable. The free breakfast was more than your usual cereal and coffee. They had tortillas, eggs, beans, waffle makers, bagels and a few other yummy items (saved us about $30 every morning). The staff was very nice. Oh yeah, Texas State employees, don't forget to ask for your discount; that saved us about $90 per night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the top floors, the view of the beach is very nice.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Very nice and helpful staff and the bed was so comfortable. We could see the T-heads from our room. All rooms have a balcony. It was priced right for the location. Clubs close by too. We plan on going back to Corpus and I will stay at this hotel.

While I have no complaints about location of hotel, rooms, beds, breakfast, etc., I do have two MAJOR complaints. Firstly, they are understaffed, have a crummy computer setup, and it takes forever to check in or to check out. The real beef, however, is that they screwed up the date of our reservation, then billed us for an extra night for "no show" for a date we weren't even in town. Since then, we have called four times to try to resolve this. No one is ever available who can resolve the issue, and no one calls back despite repeated messages both voicemail and left with a live person. Be sure to make reservation by email (keep a printed copy) and not by phone.

Yes, you did have a billing issue as a no show. However you were refunded the full amount of $196.00.
