I booked a one night stay at this hotel for business. The morning before I was to leave town for the trip my business cancelled. I called the hotel and asked to cancel but they demanded full payment for the room. When I asked to speak with the manager, I was told the manager would call back. The manager never... More

Good hotel, the over 100.00 per night, well should come down do maybe 89.00. Pleasant staff, clean room, good A/C Morning breakfast is always nice. Scrambled eggs, waffles, coffee, juices. Biscuts and gravy ect. Easy access to I-37. This Plaza Inn is a Former Drury Inn. They were in the process of starting to recarpet when we left.

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend in one of their renovated rooms. We found a bug crawling around in the room every evening. They are storing some of their combustible materials in the stairwell, not something that I want in the case of a fire. The side gate to the parking lot doesn't work so you have... More

Taking a chance here vs. 5-10$ more at places just a min. walk away. The check in and privacy are nice. However, dirty pillows, mold, and possible bugs are what lead us to check out earlier than planned. No trash can, tissues, working remote, or readily available staff. Small bathrooms but spacious rooms, though furniture you may not be keen... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are currently undergoing a major renovation which does make things feel a bit cluttered. Our staff is working very hard to maintain our standard of cleanliness and the desk is manned 24/7. There is never a time you can't find a staff member. I'm sorry we didn't seem to... More

Lots of renovation going on here. We stayed one night on the 3rd floor. The room was pretty nice, and it was clean. We had a problem opening the closet door... seems that it was not the right size door for the opening. The breakfast was what you would expect... nothing to write home about, the coffee was fair. We... More

I had a reservation at the motel 6. I was a vendor at the local gun show, where I was advised by a fellow vendor to cancel my reservation of 1 room for $49.99+tax, and spend a little more money to try the Plaza Inn, where the gun show vendors get a special rate. "It's totally worth it!" He said.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the property. I'm very sorry that you had a less than stellar experience with us. We are currently under renovation and you were clearly in a room that has yet to be updated. It is a process. While we always try to accommodate all requests, during the gun show we generally are...

We booked this hotel off the internet, based on the reservation page. That said - the hotel looks NOTHING like that page. There are no sailboats, no harbor, no ocean view - a complete let down. The staff was nice, the area seems industrial, just off the interstate and the hotel was busy. Would I stay there again - nope.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our hotel. I have reviewed our web site and it does clearly say in the opening paragraph that we are located in "central" Corpus. We do not claim to be on the waterfront and would not mislead our guests intentionally. We are only a short drive from the waterfront... More

Hotel is getting a renovation. New carpets, furniture flooring. Hotel has policy that rooms must be cancelled 24 hours before reservation or full night charge. The Plaza is one of my go to hotels in Corpus. Very very easy check in.
