“Decent hotel but not worth the price...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

In late June, I visited Corpus Christie and stayed at the Best Western Marina hotel for 7 days. It’s a privately owned hotel.

Pros:
Friendly staff
Large rooms with microwave and mini fridge
Large King size bed
Clean rooms
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
Free parking
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.

Cons:
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
Expensive hotel
• 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.

Room Tip: Stay away from elevators and ice makers.

Staff was great Adam was nice and helpful upon check in. He let us know how to get around all the cities construction going on around the establishment.. Our room was nice and clean, breakfast was great and the staff was helpful. Pool was small cute loved that we could view of The Marina and town while sitting pool side..

I liked the location of this hotel, but our room was always warm. We could not get it to cool down. I will say that when we asked for help, the courteous staff sent someone right away and everyone that worked at this location was friendly and caring. The hotel could use some updating. The pool is on an upper lever deck so my kids were cold trying to swim due to the undying wind blowing. Overall, I would say it was average. Not great, but certainly not awful either.

They erroneously charged me over $700.00 then had an attitude when I asked them about it. While I slept a man that didn't have my permission to enter my room and had absolutely no personal information associated with my reservation was given a key by hotel staff and permitted to enter my room.

Great View on the water at the marina. Great breakfast. Service was OK,Check-in was not a good experience but a supervisor made up for it. Rooms are adequate and clean but nothing special. All in all, I would stay there again due to location and price.

I slept very well! A solid 8 hours. And the breakfast was decent; several things to choose from. I just had terrible phone service with the Best Western Headquarters. The local employees were very helpful, though, in remedying the situation.
