In late June, I visited Corpus Christie and stayed at the Best Western Marina hotel for 7 days. It’s a privately owned hotel.
Large rooms with microwave and mini fridge
Large King size bed
Front entry way is open and looks newer that rest of hotel
Free breakfast on top floor (11th) with great view of bay
Free breakfast included eggs, waffles, sausage, biscuits, gravy, fruit, cereal, etc.
Free Wi-Fi though not very strong or reliable
Walking distance to marina and beach.
Pool, but very small.
Walking distance to large Whataburger and other restaurants.
Beaches in the area are nice and they have lots of parking.
Carpets on the floors were old with large stains (7th floor especially)
Paint in bathroom were chipping.
Bathroom shower head had weak water pressure
Elevators were slow and unreliable. Used stairs most of the time
Never had enough USA Today newspapers. Of my 7 day stay, I was able to get 2 newspapers.
Lots of construction going on outside the hotel so it’s very noisy
Repair work was being done right next to my room during the day with lots of banging.
Washer and dryers on site but cost $3.00 for each use
• During week paid $142/night plus $8.55 state tax/night, and $12.82 city tax/night.
• During weekend paid $170.99, plus $10.26 state tax/night and $10.36 city tax/night.
Overall the hotel is decent but not worth the price I paid. There are better alternatives that are close to beaches. I had family join me in Corpus and they paid much less at Holiday Inn Express, Econo Lodge Inn, Residence Inn, and Hilton Garden Inn. I would try one of these hotels before I stayed at this Best Western again.
