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.

For those of you looking at Corpus Christi hotels, don't be afraid to look at staying in Portland, TX. Although you are not right on the beach this hotel is in a great spot. Driving distance to several beaches is fast and convenient. You are also extremely close to Corpus attractions like the Lexington and Aquarium. The hotel's location in... More

This hotel has one KEY flaw, and that is the beds. I am on one right now, and I can say it is as soft as a coffee table. I just got here and this hotel has given me a bad impression of the corpus christi area in general, which is not nice because I have nowhere else to go... More

We arrived to Portland at 2pm and the hotel was kind enough to let us check in early. The room was super clean and the staff was very friendly. They provided a mini fridge which was not clean when we got there. The previous guests had left over breakfast in the fridge, that was a bit gross cleaning out, and... More

We needed a place to stay near Corpus Christi for 1 night and this HIE was a great place. Their customer service was friendly and helpful. We were not greeted as Platinum members as we are at most HI's. I have always enjoyed that extra personal touch. The rooms are large and tastefully done. Most of all the whole place... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night and was impressed by the size of the room. I had a king bed with a separate sitting area. What did not impress me as much was the ancient and extremely noisy A/C unit. I set it to automatic so it wouldn't run all the time, but it would wake me up... More

Pool was nice, rooms were big, breakfast was decent, lobby was nice and big, and the beds were comfortable. Just another holiday inn, if you can get it at a decent price I say do it, but for $138 I wouldn't. Don't have any major complaints, but not overly impressed.
