“Very Good Hotel - Excellent Staff”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This is a great hotel for visiting the downtown area of Corpus Christi,,, Good views and convenient to all the attractions,, the price is good for that market. I used to stay at the Omni a block down from this hotel, however I found that the rooms at the Best Western are as good and the service was much better. The advantage was the free breakfast at the Best Western and the price was a little better.

Had a wonderful time at your hotel. Very pleased with the room in whole. Location of hotel was fantastic. The breakfast was delicious. Everything was great, except.... the sliding glass door rattled loudly all night long. Waking us up periodically all night long.

Pros: The view, comfy beds, clean room, free breakfast, free parking, friendly hotel staff, and walking distance to several restaurants. Cons: Entire hotel (lobby, rooms, elevator) is old and ugly with a musty odor. You pay 4-star hotel price for 2-star hotel feel. The hotel staff had scheduled construction work on my floor and still filled these rooms with hotel guests. My family and I woke up to the sound of hammering, and there were boxes with construction materials right in front of our door along with tools and other construction materials strewn all over the hallway creating a hazardous environment for the guests. I complained to one of the staff and asked to speak with a hotel manager to complain. The hotel manager never made an appearance to personally apologize. Instead, we were given a couple of snack bags and a gas card to try to compensate us for their error. Even after I complained, the boxes were still left in front of our door. I’d like to repeat to the hotel staff and manager that putting guests on a floor where construction was being done is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE, and the manager should have made an appearance and should have apologized in person. Advice to anyone booking a room at this hotel – ask if there will be construction done on your floor.

Room Tip: Long wait for elevators -- Free breakfast on 11th floor so try to get a room at a high floor and you...

I gave this hotel a 3 because there are some great hits, but there are also many misses. For starters the location is ideal. Walking distance to restaurants and nightlife. They have bay front views for an affordable price. Another great hit for this place is the lounge. You would not expect this lounge to be inside this hotel by looking at it from the outside. For someone who travels here on business this is a great place to pass the night. One of the misses is the overall dated feel of the hotel. The hotel has been updated for the most part, but the bathrooms mainly the toilets are still very outdated. The hallways are dingy and the outside could use a touch up. The AC system and WiFi are very poor also. I would not recommend this hotel for a long stay, but it's definitely a great value for a short stay.

The hotel staff from the front desk to the maintenance people in the hall were very friendly. The breakfast staff treated us like at a nice restaurant. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance. The view from our room was great.

I want to tell everyone to never stay here!! We checked in and we noticed our room had a terrible smell. We tried to go to sleep but while the air was running it only got worse, like a swamp and mold mixed together. They changed our room when I called to tell the front desk about it.

We then went to a different room and went to sleep. Around midnight people were turning our doorknob and trying to get in. We were terrified!! We ran to the door and then the people actually opened the door.

The front desk sold our room while we were sleeping in it. This is unacceptable. To know that while you are sleeping people can come in!! After talking to the company nothing is being done and they actually said it happens a lot. Please do not stay here!! You never know what might happen.
