“Great Hotel! Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

This hotel is by far, the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in!! Very comfortable beds and the tile floors were great! No dirty carpet like most other hotels! Free breakfast, very friendly staff, and excellent prices. I have nothing to say but good things about Best Western on the Island! We will definitely be back!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

the hotel was clean and the beds comfortable. They have a easy-to-clean remote control to prevent the spread of germs (much better than putting the remote in the ice bag!). They have an ice machine and vending machine, but the vending machine was not very well stocked and was very expensive.

The best part of our stay was the free breakfast. They had lost of healthy food to choose from. They had oatmeal, donuts, cereal, milk, natural yogurt, raisin bran, hard boiled eggs, waffles, fruit, and more. Very yummy!

there is no restaurant at the hotel, but it is very close to Snoopy's where we went for dinner.

This place has a great location--quick to get to restaurants, beaches, and other attractions. However, it is not in a crowded, high-traffic area, which makes it peaceful and it feels safe.

For the price, you get a great room. Ours was impeccably clean and comfortable. Great plumbing, great A/C and good sized refrigerator. We slept better in the bed than we do in ours at home.

The staff is also incredibly friendly. My husband went down to see what time the complimentary breakfast ended (9am) and it was already after 9, but the employee at the front desk assured him that if we hurried back, they wouldn't take it away until we ate.

We chose this place because of the price and the reviews. If you are on a budget and/or plan to spend most of your time out and about, I sincerely doubt you would be disappointed in choosing Best Western on the Island. Literally the only thing I would change is the size of the pillows, which are square rather than round, but this is negligible and hardly impacted our stay.

It says everything that the staff at this location hand you a printout asking you to review them on this site. They take pride in their facility and the high level of customer service they offer and they welcome your business. In a time when service seems to decline with every passing day, that means everything. I would highly recommend this hotel, and in fact, I already have.

Excellant service and the beds were heaven! Sarah was a real sweetheart when we checked in and Risi was as well on our way out. Breakfast was great! So much to choose from and the pool was awesome! This was a great trip and a reasonable price for the service provided. :)

This hotel is about 15 min outside of downtown corpus christi. It is very close to mustang island national park and the national seashore. The room was VERY nice i thought for a very good price. the night i went it was $120.00 and like i said the room was very nice. i would stay here over and over if i was in the neighborhood.

My husband and I stayed here about 3 years ago and were very happy with the Manager Ketan Bhakta and his staff! We came back this year and have to say that this stay was even better! The rooms have all been remodeled, no more icky carpets! Tile is so much nicer, cooler and any spills can be wiped up completely, not like carpeting. We dealt with Rice, Sarah and Joe, the Front Desk persons, all very polite and professional. The housekeeping staff were all eager to help make our stay comfortable and clean. They are doing some major remodeling in the lobby area now and we can't wait to see how that will come out. Breakfasts were great, hard boiled eggs, toast, biscuits and gravy, hot cereal, cold cereal, even waffles!
The hotel is located 12 miles from the National Sea Shore, which we enjoyed walking everyday! There are plenty of places to eat along the Island and the hotel is close to a lot of other attractions, like Mustang Island and the USS Lexington.
Thank you very much for a perfect stay!
