“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

The management and staff were very friendly and efficient in solving problems. While we were visiting, there was a major problem with the hot water system and they kept us up to date on the issue as well as giving us a substantial credit. Everything was absolutely spotless and we found the location to be excellent - half way between downtown (lots of free parking) and the shopping area with easy access off the South Padre Island Freeway.
The only issue we had was with the breakfast service as each day they seemed to be short of either fresh fruit or yogurt and the coffee was very weak.

This is the best CI I have every visited. The room had the feel of a more expensive hotel with dark furniture, crown molding, granite, flat screen tv, big fluffy towels, and more! The bed was very comfortable!

The room had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. The bed was super comfortable, and the ac/heat was controlled with a thermastadt, so there was no constant blowing to keep the room comfortable. The bathroom had a large shower and no tub.

The breakfast had fresh fruit, pasteries, eggs, bacon or sausage, cereal,waffles, juices, coffee, tea, milk,etc. There were lots of choices so no one should be disappointed.

The pool and hot tub were outside and very nice!

This was a great value for us as we stayed two nights for free using our Choice Hotel points. I would definately stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Husband and I were in town for one night on business. We were looking for somewhere reasonably priced, clean with basic amenities. This hotel was a good pick. I found a good price online on one of the discount sites and called the hotel to see if they could match it, which they did. We ended up getting upgraded form a Queen to a King room, and for two people we felt it was quite spacious and adequate.

Pro's
- easy check in and efficient staff
- clean room
- comfy bed
- nice shower and new fixtures

Con's
- Breakfast was very limited (fresh fruit or yogurt would have been a plus)
- A bit outside of town (it isn't downtown and the view from our room was pretty dismal)

Clean, easily accessed and inexpensive, this hotel worked for us. I wouldn't pick this hotel for a vacation but for business, or a one night stop, it's a good choice. If we go to Corpus again, I would definitely consider staying here again.

Room was well appointed and the bed was heavenly. Staff were very helpful.
Only criticism was no tea bags on breakfast bar.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2011

Walked in the hotel lobby and immediately encountered other visitors using very foul language while loudly yelling to each other. Not the staff's fault, but not a good sign, and staff did not acknowlege it. Went up to the room and saw holes in the couch, a large hole in the desk chair, and many stains on the carpet and comforters. The hotel had very few cars in the lot this night. Was this one of the better rooms??

I went out to the car to get my things, and saw a group of older guys sitting right outside the back entrance with several six packs and also using really loud foul language. Maybe these are the oil workers another reviewer eluded to?

In general, the place is in pretty bad shape for a building that's just a few years old. Trim coming loose from walls, much needed paint touchups everywhere, filthy walls around the elevator buttons. They seem to be doing the bare minimum to maintain the place coupled with shoddy materials and workmanship.

I will give them credit for a really nice roomy, clean, and attractive bathroom, and the front desk was very helpful.

We chose this Hotel for it's location. When we got there it was late in the after noon , the front desk person (Kortnie)was very curteous, caring person.. We found our room to be very clean and well kept. We always had towels +. The FREE breakfast was delicious, we had eggs .bacon,waffels, biscuit & gravy,,and toast, What more could ask for ! When we needed any thing, Kortnie went beyond the call of duty to help us. Even came to our room to help me with my I-Pad to connect to internet, I might mention that I'm disabled and all personell treated me with respect. you don't always find that.. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!!
