“Nice hotel, friendly staff”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

We spent 3 nights of our family vacation here. Property is a little older but very well maintained. Staff was especially friendly. The only negative was that on a windy day our sliding door whistled a little bit. Based on other reviews I was concerned about the neighborhood being unsafe but I didn't find that to be the case at all.

Room Tip: Choose a room on an upper floor for a great view.

This was by far the best expirence I've had staying in a hotel!!! I travel to corpus quite often for work and I have stayed everywhere from the holiday inn to the omni. I am still thinking about the awesome breakfast with almost everything you could imagine to eat! The bedspreads kind of reminded me of my grandma's taste... But overall i give this hotel a 5!!!! And the staff was impressive! I dont know if they will get accnoledged for there excellent work but i want to thank Frank, and Bridget for them going above and beyond customer service!!!! I will most definitly be back! And i recommened everyone to enjoy a night here!!!!!!!!!

We decided to stay here because most of the poor reviews were older. We read about the renovations and thought the hotel might have improved. We were surprised to show up and see that the hotel was still under renovation. We were unable to check in early even though there was a terrible storm going on. When we were finally able to check in, the woman checking us in left to go answer questions and help another customer at another counter several times. When given the slip to sign, we realized that it did not have our correct address. The woman rudely stated that it was already paid for and didn't seem to care. When we saw the credit card was not even the same kind we had used to pay, we inquired further. Magazine, she continued to basically yell that the room was paid for online. Upon asking someone else, we were told that Priceline codes the credit cards and addresses for security. We had never had this happen before. Regardless, the woman was very rude about it and could have just said that in the first place. The room itself appeared nice and the wifi was free. But the hairdresser are way too old to dry anyone's hair and the shower temperature doesn't go beyond lukewarm. The heat would not go above seventy in our room. After freezing the first night, we inquired about blankets, since there are basically only sheets on the bed. We were told they ran out of blankets and that maintenance would come. They couldn't fix the heat and offered to move us, to which we declined. At breakfast, the woman barely acknowledged customers and would not take a key left behind by another customer on the counter, instead implying that we should find out who it belongs to. The area just behind the hotel does not have much to offer and is pretty sketchy to walk through. I would pay more to stay at the Omni next time.

Jessica, our Guest Services Manager has tried to reach out to you and the person sharing the room with you to discuss the problems you had at check-in, but have not heard back. We apologize as the clerk checking you into the room was new at the front desk and was not able to answer your questions appropriately. We do hope you consider the Best Western in the future and would welcome the opportunity to talk to you personally.

We were visiting a relative at Spohn Hospital.
All the rooms have a lovely view of the waterfront. The rooms was comfortably outfitted, including an easy chair that was the perfect spot to read while looking out at the boats moored at he Marina. Convenient, ample self parking. Within easy walking distance of a variety of restaurants...from the original Whataburger, to great Mexican food at Los Comales and fresh seafood at Harrison's Landing. Our room was quiet and comfortable, and I enjoyed the convenience of keeping my drinks cool in the mini-fridge.

Room Tip: We have stayed there several times, and all of the rooms have been consistently good.

We found this hotel very uncomfortable. Noisy construction, but the worst was when we called down for more pillows and blankets (there were just sheets on the bed). I have a breathing problem and the 2 little cushions (not pillows) on our bed were not enough. We were told that guests were only allowed 2 pillows-- you believe that?? Even one star hotels will provide extra bedding. We moved to the Omni for the next 3 days and were much more comfortable. On the plus side, the front staff were friendly and the view was gorgeous.

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows.

A Gem of a place for its views of the Bay and wonderful staff! The complimentary breakfast was excellent & served on the top floor while they renovate the 1st floor breakfast area...what a treat! Everything in our room was 1st class and exceedingly comfortable. Parking is ample with choices of both covered and open parking. A security guard was posted in the lot.

I just got back from staying at the Best Western Marina and the location and patio view is really the only thing going for this place. The walls are so thin, I could hear the man in the room next to me coughing. Doors slam constantly, and people's conversations can be heard clearly in the hall as you are trying to sleep. You can even hear when your neighbor flushes the toliet.
The view is just amazing and the staff is generally good. The room was very clean and the beds were nice, but you just wont get any sleep.
