Not sure what is going on, why people gave this hotel decent reviewss. Going by previous reviews I felt this was a pretty nice hotel. I have never stayed in such a hotel in dire need of cleaning. The room we stayed in was aweful, the carpet had stains, my foot (wore flip flops, wouldn't dare go barefoot) would get... More

I would highly reccommend Plaza Inn for several reasons to anyone visiting Corpus Christi. When we arrived I found that we were placed on the 4th floor(smoking)and I had inadvertantly neglected to specify non smoking when I placed the reservation. They readily offered to change our room location to another floor. Then, after saying she would place us on the... More

My wife and I had a pleasant stay here at the Plaza Inn. Breakfast was great, rooms where nice and of course the staff polite and friendly, one individual was superb, very friendly , husky gentlemen w/ glasses didn't catch his name but good job. Great work Plaza Inn will be returning in the near future.

The wifi only worked 10% of the time, and when we called to ask about when it would be fixed they never gave a straight answer. The rooms were never clean to begin with. The carpet made our feet dirty. They didn't clean our rooms. Out of date technology. The staff was unhelpful. Breakfast buffet wasn't even breakfast worthy. Unsafe... More

Plaza Inn was an adequate hotel to stay in. The room was clean and functioning, except that the shower didn't work. The lobby was nice, though it is clearly not a smoke-free environment. The breakfast was sufficient, though for some odd reason there were no packets of jelly for the toast. Otherwise, there was a good variety of food. The... More

We were taking a mini vacation before the start of school with other family and when making the reservation asked that the 3 rooms be together. We were all seperated by at least 3-4 rooms in between. The 2nd floor hall smelled of pet urine and was filthy. The room we had had mold on the wall next the AC,... More

I was surprised to see how small the room and the restroom were. However it was very clean. The tolite is small and old, ran all night. The bath room has no suction vent but AC vent yes. The good thing is it is a separate room from the sink. The tv was modern, but no phone charge plugs or... More
