Stayed in Corpus Christie for one night and just wanted somewhere relaxing with easy access to the beach and this place was perfect!

Stayed one night at this hotel with my husband and dog. It is a perfectly fine, clean, decent beach hotel. Any reviews complaining clearly had too high expectations and are too high maintenance - they should have booked into a different hotel to begin with if they are so picky - or not gone to plain ole Corpus and expected...

Yes, the rooms are old; but our room was clean and we had a great view overlooking the beach. I expected it to be loud at night because this is a pet friendly and family friendly hotel; but the only thing that woke us was our own pets. We slept like babies! Thank you for a fun 4th!!

We stayed for a soccer tournament on the beach next to the hotel so the location was great. The price at 200 per night was outrageous. I have stayed at 5 star hotels in NYC and LA for the same $. The bathroom was moldy, the air conditioning system was ancient and always damp in the room. The carpet stained... More
