Jeremy Buller, the so-called front desk manager, gave away the rooms we reserved for my wife and kids after I reconfirmed the reservation and requested a late check in that same day. When they showed up at the hotel after driving four hours, he said he tried to call and warn us our rooms would be given away; only problem... More

We only live 30 min away from this hotel but like to stay overnight for the shopping opportunities and this is our favorite location. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are newly decorated and very clean. Will stay here again in the future.

For value it is hard to beat this hotel. The location is so conveniently near to every kind of shopping you might need. You can spend more money by staying on the beach or you can stay here and drive to the beach and save your money. I don't understand people complaining about the rates because we have traveled to...

My family and I wanted to visit the Texas State Aquarium so we stayed the night in Corpus. We read good reviews about this former Hampton Inn and we figured it was a decent place to stay. Great location because it is next to the Palmera Mall and all the nice restaurants like PF Changs, but overall a horrible place... More

We tayed for 3 nights and it cost us an amount close to the highest hotel rates around. We picked it given the customer reviewes... Looks like they have someone writing reviews on their behalf. The cleaning staff was so arrogant... My room was not cleaned until 4 PM. When I moved out of the room the next day at... More

The staff and management at the Country Inn could not have been nicer. Several of us native Corpus Christians were visiting from out of town for a family funeral and they were most accommodating about helping us find our way around and even letting us use their breakfast area for a reception, as Bcpianoman said.

It's rare today to find a hotel so caring about their guests. We were in town for a funeral, and had no place for a small reception afterwards. The staff and hotel manager Betty Knight-Tapia offered to help. They graciously allowed our family to use the breakfast area afterwards to mingle and greet out of town friends. Not only were...
