I was very pleased with the room. Room was newly renovated. Room was very clean. The front desk very courteous and professional. Highly recommend. Inn was within walking distance to the beach. Property was well kept and clean. Convenient parking.

Didn't honor quoted price; two days in a row not enough towels for four people despite request; already used soap left at sink; room stank and black mold in bathroom ceiling; dirty coffee pot first morning; same litter all over parking lot during our three day stay. Tried to get a cup of coffee at 7 a.m. not open. Beds... More

1st time to Corpus Christi. I just needed a place to lay my head - wasn't expecting much. I really hand it to this un-assuming place. Clean, and everything you could want. I think I paid $69 (off season). Oh .. the Ocean is across the street! Nice people.

Beautiful rooms just $80 a night right across from beach. Clean and well decorated with fridge microwave and ocean view. Pool looked clean. Patio on 2nd floor. We stayed with our 22 month old and loved it. Moved to 2nd floor ocean view room for quiet. Same price as downstairs and right across from beach. Not sure what's wrong with... More

If you just need a place to shower n sleep it's ok for being so close to the bay.. the owners are rude the parking lot is cramped and it's full of out of town const workers. We paid a $100 for a downstairs single king but I seriously doubt we'll stay here again.

My wife just recently as of last week went to Corpus Christi to complete her clinical. She is a medical students. Because we live on another side of town my wife decided to get a hotel for her stay in order for her to complete her clinical objectives. She planned on staying there for a week but initially changed her... More

Came to this hotel because it was the cheapest with okay ratings for spring break 2014. When we arrived we had to come from the back because in the front the roads were under construction and closed off. But as soon as we went into the property our first reactions was "Oh my gosh! its ghetto". Small parking lot/very tight... More

The rooms are old, Beds are not clean, we asked for a non smoking room and it smelled like smoke all over, there was a cigarette butt on the floor in back of the door. The parking area is small. The pool Is small and looked dirty. Never again. Like I said you get what you pay for.

We booked for July 5 -7 on July 3, last minute. Room was dated but clean. Had a dorm fridge, and a microwave. Location was great, could walk across ocean drive, and shoreline blvd to beach, from motel to water was about 150 yards. One day we parked at a parking lot near the beach, ( the spaces on the...

Pros... A/c worked very well. Spacious room with microwave and mini fridge. Looks clean. Staff friendly. Cons... We called the night before we would be arriving and made the reservation. We got the confirmation number once our credit card was charged, and told the girl we would be in after 10.00pm the next night. We were assured everything was fine.... More
