There used to be a time when the word Inn was a euphemism for dump. But the Plaza Inn in Corpus Christi is certainly no dump. It is a bright and modern 4 story hotel. It appears to be near new with an attractive lobby and other sitting/waiting areas. The hotel is a non-smoking property and our room was a... More

When we arrived we were greeted with a long list of rules (pics posted here) I immediately knew this was no place for me. I started fishing for ratings and noticed people complaining about roaches which I did see during my stay (pics posted here) Everything about this MOTEL is cheap. The beds, pillows, towels and even the WiFi was... More

Monitoring of swimming area needs attention. We were waiting to go into the pool after a relaxing time when all of a sudden about 3 car loads of kids came in through the back gate and entered the pool area. I don't think all were guests at the hotel. I believe they were friends or relatives of some of your... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you also, for letting us know about the pool. We, like any other hotel with a pool, have to be on guard for kids just showing up to swim. Please call the front desk should that ever happen again. We look... More

It was a nice stay. The rooms clean and complete with all the necessities. The hot breakfast was above average. It looks a little dark but the security was good and there was a convenience store and Subway next door for eats! Much more affordable and just as nice as the Holiday Inn across the freeway.

Good hotel, the over 100.00 per night, well should come down do maybe 89.00. Pleasant staff, clean room, good A/C Morning breakfast is always nice. Scrambled eggs, waffles, coffee, juices. Biscuts and gravy ect. Easy access to I-37. This Plaza Inn is a Former Drury Inn. They were in the process of starting to recarpet when we left.

My wife and I stayed for a long weekend in one of their renovated rooms. We found a bug crawling around in the room every evening. They are storing some of their combustible materials in the stairwell, not something that I want in the case of a fire. The side gate to the parking lot doesn't work so you have... More

Taking a chance here vs. 5-10$ more at places just a min. walk away. The check in and privacy are nice. However, dirty pillows, mold, and possible bugs are what lead us to check out earlier than planned. No trash can, tissues, working remote, or readily available staff. Small bathrooms but spacious rooms, though furniture you may not be keen... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are currently undergoing a major renovation which does make things feel a bit cluttered. Our staff is working very hard to maintain our standard of cleanliness and the desk is manned 24/7. There is never a time you can't find a staff member. I'm sorry we didn't seem to... More
