Overall a nice place, great location on Gulf of Mexico. Hotel is clean, rooms above average size with refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. Decor is a little dated, restaurant is reasonably priced.

....but old and kind of run down. Right on the beach which is a BIG bonus in Corpus, but hotel could really use a renovation. Lobby, bar, restaurant, and rooms are dated. Good place for large school groups, but for a romantic get away...not so much. Good play area and pool for kids.

The Hotel was right off the Beach and was happening @ night....great music from the bar....clean room....couldn't drink the water or order anything with ice in... More

We came to town to see the performance of DWTS @ American Bank Center. The hotel is in a great location, close to a lot of sightseeing. Our patio door opened into the beach. It was a beautiful view. We had a great time. You can also rent Sea Doo, floats, chairs, & umbrellas right on the beach.

The staff was friendly but the hotel was not very clean. We had stains on the curtains of our room that looked like poop. The hotel bar was small and just looked like a counter with bar stools. The outside bar smelled so bad of old trash that we just could not sit there. Not to mention the bar was... More

We booked this hotel after a family members recommendation. First the good: the beds were comfortable and bed bug free. The young man from Trinity that worked the pool area was very friendly. I'm afraid that is it. We waiting 30 minutes after checking which is late at 4:00 anyway. Upon arriving to the room the beds had been changed,... More

We chose this hotel because of its location on the beach. I read some reviews on here that didn't sound very good, but overall we had a great experience. We had a bay view room on the 2nd floor and enjoyed watching the sunrise from our balcony. The room we stayed in had an extra small room attached that had... More

This the only hotel in Corpus Christie that is directly on the beach, so it's a great location. It was built in the 1960's but the elevators have not been upgraded so they are very, very small. During peak hours, be prepared to wait and wait and wait! When the elevator finally comes, only a few guests at a time... More

We have been staying at this hotel for many years and have never had a bad experience. Rooms have always been quiet and clean and we love than we can see the beach from our room. The staff is friendly and the food in the restaurant is reasonably good for the prices. Though the drinks are not the greatest at... More

Our room did not have a good view and you can tell that it is an older hotel. The bed was very comfortable. Front desk could have been a little friendlier. I was totally impressed with the beach access. If I was traveling with children it would have been the perfect spot!
