“Awesome Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The hotel was an excellent place to spend a week for our vacation. Holiday Inn Downtown Marina was located right on the Gulf and had a beautiful view. We spent a week there and loved every minute of it from the room we stayed in to the wonderful and friendly staff. If we needed information, food, attractions or extra towels the service there was great and the staff was more than willing to help us with anything we needed. The rooms were large and clean. We had all the amenities of home. We were just a short drive to the beach, The USS Lexington, The Aquarium and so much more. I would recommend staying here for your next visit to Corpus Christi.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor and the view was beautiful. It was very quiet and the sunshine was bea...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

My wife and I stayed three nights in this Hotel. It has a great location and view. Our room was fairly small with a really small rest room. The workmanship in the room leaves a lot to be desired… crooked light fixture over the mirror, crooked outlets, towel rack coming loose from the wall, bathtub faucet turning when you try to switch to shower. The walls are thin or we had the bad luck to have some loud obnoxious people in the connecting room. We put towels in the bottom of the door and it helped a bit but were woken up two nights around midnight! Check-in was fast, efficient and very friendly. The restaurant is small and so maybe that is why the buffet is also pretty small but it’s still a good value. We had the buffet one morning and a-la carte the next. The huevos rancheros were delicious. The service was very good and again very friendly, personable waitresses. My main complaint is with house-keeping… they did not restock the soap and the last day they simply stretched the covers on the bed… we ended having to make it ourselves before going to sleep. The air conditioner kept the room nice and cool but it seems to be missing dehumidifying capacity. On the whole, I would return.

Room Tip: upper floor for better views

Dear Ricky Barr: Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences and your continued loyalty to our hotel. While the name on the outside of the building may have changed the great customer service has not. With the renovation that is occurring our hotel will match the great customer service making us the “go to” hotel in Corpus. Thank you for recognizing Amanda R at the front desk, she is one of many customer service champions we have on staff. We look forward to seeing you again when you return to Corpus.

Stayed here with friends just after spring break. The hotel was tired, we used room service twice and twice we were ignored.
The staff were very apologetic and I got the impression there may have been a problem with a member of staff so we left it at that.
We were collecting loyalty points and I promised myself I and my wife would not go back, but I see it is being remodelled, so despite the dingy stained room that put me off I may well give the hotel another go!

Dear Callum W: Thank you for letting us know about your stay earlier in the year. I apologize that your experience was not up to our usual high standards. You were staying at the hotel right after the conversion from an Omni to the Holiday Inn and were still working out the kinks. I do not feel your stay was a true representation of our service. As you point out we are currently undergoing a renovation that will make us one the best hotels in Corpus and I extend to you a personal invitation to return and see the improvements that are taking place and experience our quality service. As mentioned in previous reviews (after your stay over spring break) service is our number one priority. Thanks again and I look forward to personally welcoming you back to the Holiday Inn Downtown Marina.

I was concerned about some of the reviews but this is a top notch hotel! I loved the view from my room. The bed and linens were great. I loved the in room coffee and the breakfast buffet. We walked to restaurants! It is a great location! I hope to go back someday!

The hotel is in the process of being remodeled.
Pool with Pool Bar, great location and views.
I did not eat there because there were plenty of restaraunts within a close walk.
I would consider it somewhere between 3 &4 stars until the remodel is complete.

Also you have to pay $10/day to park, I hate paying to park at the hotel I am staying at!!
The fitness room has machines and free weights, above average.

The location was great , the view was beautiful. The breakfast was to expensive for what you got for the money , but luckly Dennys is not to far off of hwy 37. room was nice, pool was great. only wish spa was working, under repairs. very friendly staff. easy walk to the bayfront. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: The breakfast was not free and expensive. For 9.99 you got a juice, choice of meat, 2 eggs your way...

Dear califfroggy: Thank you for taking the time to review the Holiday Inn Downtown Marina, we appreciate your feedback. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the fantastic views across the bay and marina and that you got the opportunity to enjoy our wonderful indoor/outdoor pool area. The spa is currently down and will be removed to be replaced with a great deck area with table games and deck chairs. Due to our location a lot of our guests take advantage of the easy stroll along the bay front. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back in the very near future.
