This is not a bad place to stay, especially if you want to be near the beach. The problem I have is that it is very loud at night with kids always running around everywhere. The rooms are always clean and the staff is great.

Was going by reviews on their site and it wasn't a good experience for us. I got into the room had no end tables by bed thus no lights by bed. I had a coffee pot in room and no coffee. I went to office asked for the coffee was told it was at Exxon Gas station down the road.... More

The Title pretty much says it all, in my experiences. Been there several times over the years and the Gulf is the same, but while service has never been great, it had gotten consistantly worse. Middle-Eastern staff behaved like they were running a slum dump, and the clientele were def mostly minority ghetto types. Loud nasty music too late into... More

Stayed for two nights, very nice room with refrigerator and microwave, very nice staff. Close to the beach and a few restaurants. Excellent value. I would definitely stay there again. Some of the restaurants in the area were not open but it could have been due to seasonal reasons or being Sunday but otherwise location was nice.

Sorry this is late. We stayed at the hotel the staff is friendly and it was close to the water. It was clean and served it's purpose. If needed I would stay again. The price is good and they made updates to the area in the last year or so. There are a lot of things within walking distance.

I'm late in submitting this, but I promised the staff I would let everyone know what a great experience we had during our week's stay. Some of you may recall the days when a family could load up in a station wagon and hit the road without ever having to make a reservation anywhere. In those days, destination communities were...

When you pull up, you might get nervous and decide to leave. We almost did. But, we took and chance and asked to see the room before checking in. Rooms have just been completely remodeled. Very nice and worth more than the price. Glad we stayed here and avoided paying the out of control prices at some of the other... More

Went to Corpus Christi with my sister, her two grandsons. I found this little hotel. I wasn't sure about it with the different reviews I had read, but was really glad I took the chance. Room was nice and clean. It was also newly remodeled. We had a beach front view. The location alone was perfect. We had a great... More

I've been to Corpus many times but this was the first and last time I will ever stay at this place. I reserved the room back in April/May for $200.00 per night as a surprise birthday weekend for my husband. The room had NO AC, when we ask them to please fix it, they came in the room to see...

Before I booked this motel, I read all the reviews first and took our chances. Glad we did. Keep in mind...if you are looking for a five star hotel, this isn't the place for you; however, if you are looking for something that is functional, clean, very affordable right on the beach...this is the right place. My family and I... More
