We have always stayed here when going to Corpus. It is right on the beach, which we like. Some rooms open right to the beach which is great, but sand gets in the carpet making it feel gross. The rooms overlooking the pool were ok. No fridge, micro, and only a one cup coffee maker. The corporate rooms have them,... More

We stayed at this hotel because of the proximity to the downtown area, we appreciate the fact that they do allow pets, and convenience to the beach area. It is not the cleanest hotel in the world, but considering that it is high traffic for families with children and pets, it is completely understandable. For the most part, hotel rooms... More

After spending 3 days here, I think people have been too harsh on this hotel. Yes, it is old and needs updating. But it is clean, the staff is very friendly, and you can walk out of your room directly onto the beach. Front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant staff (especially Margie) were all exceptionally friendly and helpful. Loved sitting out... More

I usually stay at the holiday inn north padre island. Right on the beach but it was sold out so i decided to give this hotel a chance since it was beach front. We had an okay stay. I got the family package with breakfast included and beach toys for the kids. That was over 30 dollars worth and i... More

Pros 1) Right on the beach. 2) Clean 3) Housekeeping walked the extra mile to provide service. I had gotten to know the staff.

This hotel is so conveniently located on the water in downtown Corpus that I ignored the other reviews and went for it. Bad decision. Our room had not been vacuumed. There were things all over the carpet: little rubber bands from girls' hair, Nerf darts, etc. It looks like they just replaced the toiletries. The maid came by one time... More

The service is bad. The maid service was terrible! The pool was dirty. Our room had fleas so we asked to be moved. This place isnt what it used to be. All this place is good for is the location. The tub drain was cloged the rooms where no smoking smelled like smoke.

This hotel was not good! Our room was small and not very clean. We washed down the walls ourselves and found the maids dirty rag one day left in our room. Lobby is uninviting with stray dogs running in and out. Cleaning crew hangs out around front desk with annoying music playing. Did not dare eat the food here. Location... More

Business center could be a little better. Wish the pool was outdoors. Great beach access. Rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. Breakfast buffet was good for price. Close to area attractions. On site workout area.
