Upon arriving at the front desk the staff were extremely friendly. Able to offer advice on restaurants in the area. Perfectly located between Corpus Christi and Port Aransas. Local tourist activities all within 5 miles. Like the Texas Aquarium, Lexington and gulf beaches

We took a long weekend and part of it, we headed down to Corpus Christi. We used our Reward Nights to stay, and for the number of points, it was an absolute steal. We had a spacious king suite and it was perfect. The breakfast selection is wonderful (love those 1 minute pancakes) and you can even bag food up... More

Stayed Nov 7 and 8. Check in was smooth. Hotel appears to be fairly new and everything is clean and fresh. Our two queen suite was quite large and comfy. All expected amenities are present including a large flat screen TV. We noted the crown molding throughout the hotel adds a touch of class. Beds were comfortable with fresh sheets... More

After attending the hummingbird festival in Rockport, we decided to extend our mini weekend getaway. We had to go all the way to Portland before we found a hotel with available rooms, but we were highly rewarded for our tenacity when we found availability at this hotel. The front desk attendants were extremely helpful. Not only was the evening attendant... More

Front desk staff very nice and helpful. The room was clean and fresh, nicely furnished. Conveniently located near restaurants, stores and the beach. Breakfast was typical for chain motels but good selection.

We booked our annual Memorial Day trip here knowing we'd have to drive to the beaches. It was a very short trip to Port Aransas (10-15 minutes we were on the beach.) I was surprised to see how close we were to the Corpus downtown area 10 minutes the other direction. Great choice for us!

The hotel is located near Hwy 181 and very close to a number of restaurants. They have decent breakfast (standard for this type hotel). Housekeeping is very good. The place had a good fitness room and pool.

The rooms are way overpriced. Charged me 200 a night when Internet say 126. Breakfast thrown together and not nearly as good as other Holiday Inn's. Bed is hard and water pressure is low. The front staff need to all be fired. Smart mouths and not customer focused. Comfort Inn right down the road 100 times better.
