If you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere. This is a clean mom and pop motel with the friendliest, most helpful housekeeping staff I've ever encountered. The rooms are spacious but dated, and the free continental breakfast is on the small side but sufficient. But let's face it, you don't stay here for amenities - it's all about location. The... More

Great pricing and right in front of the beach. Clerk at front desk was very helpful and friendly. The house keeping was very attentive. Room was clean and spacious with microwave, mini fridge and stove. A/C worked great, a little too good if you ask me. I was freezing! My husband enjoyed it. No breakfast though :(

Stayed in room 110 and my son and daughter woke with bedbug bites and I woke up with one live one on my chest ! Told management and they didn't look surprised, and was told they'd "investigate" despite bringing the live bug and my son with the bites. Never again will I ever stay there the first time in 10...

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.

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.
