Comfortable bed, clean room, big pool, indoor playground, and convenient beach access-all great perks to staying here. It was great having the microwave, mini fridge, and the sofa in the room. I appreciate that I requested a view of the water when I made the reservation and was granted a nice view of the water, beach, and the city. It... More

Do not stay here. There is a reason there are no pictures of the interior of the hotel. The rooms are very outdated and dirty. No one should pay $209.00 for a room here. Run as far as possible. The air condition did not work and the hotel staff offered no alternatives nor comps.

Floors were nasty, after getting out if the shower the bottom of our feet were brown. Bathtub nobs had holes between them and tiles, tiles and grout were just nasty. Ceiling above door was practically black from yuck. Worst/nastiest place I've ever stayed at and couldn't get out fast enough.

We spent 4 nights at the Emerald Beach Hotel. It was our first trip to Corpus. I was impressed with the courtesy of the staff (we had flight problems that made us really late getting in). I was a bit unhappy that with 5 of us (my adult son and 3 young daughters) there were only 2 queen size beds... More

Decided to get away for a weekend and we wanted to be on a beach. This hotel delivered. The bay view room was older and small but was first floor and we could literally walk out onto the beach. The sand blowing all over was not the coolest but what do you expect. They were not the best at cleaning... More

We stayed at the Emerald Beach hotel for four nights, at a cost of about $800 total...not too bad a price since we could walk out to the sand and be right on the ocean. However, when we got to our room, the door had to be slammed in order to close all the way, we were told over the... More

Stayed in Corpus Christie for one night and just wanted somewhere relaxing with easy access to the beach and this place was perfect! I was a little skeptical because of some of the bad reviews but decided to just go there and check it out in person, and was very pleasantly surprised! We booked the room online and got a... More

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!!
