My wife and I stayed here for Valentine's Day. We paid a little extra for the bay view room with a deck, and it was well worth it. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Service at the restaurant was great! Only complaint was the internet was a little unreliable during peak usage hours. Overall, we had a great time,... More

What a lovely location and nice hotel. This used to be a Holiday Inn but is now private. Very friendly staff who let us and our dogs check in at 1:30pm. Beautiful room witha nice view of the beach and sea wall. Lots of green area for the dogs. Ate supper at the bar area so that we could watch... More

We stayed here because we were travelling with a pet. Hotel is not well maintained. Rooms are very small and have a strange oder. Bathroom is also very small, shower isn't clean and the water from the shower drips constantly and we can't get it to stop. Only 1 easily accessible plug at the desk, the rest require moving furniture... More

The rating placement for this hotel is about right. Middle of the road. Walls are paper-thin. Be prepared for noisy neighbors in the middle of the night. HVAC system was loud and unreliable. Bar was convenient and breakfast was good.

Stayed here for three nights for my anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better location. My wife and I enjoyed sitting on the balconey looking out over the beach. Had a nice walk down the sea wall, enjoyed the fact you can rent jet ski's down on the beach and had dome nice relaxing time down at the tiki... More

This was my fourth time staying at this hotel. I usually prefer their suites facing the beach, but decided to try something new. I ended up on the 6th floor (634/5?) in a corner suite over the main entrance. View was just as beautiful and patio was just as comfortable as the others (especially with patio sized chairs instead of... More

Last time I stayed at this hotel, it was owned by holiday inn and was not at all impressed by the cleanliness of the room, the service or the maintenance of the pool. So, when I was searching for a place to stay in November and found that this was one of the only hotels with a vacancy in this... More

A hotel right on the beach, how novel. The swimming pool is huge but the spa should be hotter. I'm used to 111 degrees. The room is spacious with a king bed and a double pullout. With wall to wall windows, the room is bright all day long. The bathroom is small and the mirror is hung too low for... More

My son had a baseball tournament Dec 5-7th and our accommodations were at this hotel. The hotel sits on the beach, which is nice. They have an inside pool and play area for smaller kids. The staff was very nice and accomodating. The driver will take you to places in the area. They do not have a laundry room which... More

I have stayed at the Emerald Beach Hotel many times in the past 4 years. The hotel is in a great location on the beach- the only hotel in Corpus that is directly on the water. Yes, it is an older hotel and is not a "luxury" property. That being said, the hotel is great for what it is and... More
