Decided to take a last minute trip to the beach, needed a 1-night room. It was the only hotel that had a room that wasn't upwards of $150+. The neighborhood is kind of sketchy. Was a little worried when we were put in a room where we couldn't see the car but everything ended up being fine. The lobby is...

I chose this horrible place due to mostly positive reviews, price, and closeness to airport. What a mistake! I arrived by taxi and 11:30PM after flying all day from CA. You "enter" into a tiny area where the extremely unpleasant attendant slides a registration paper under a closed window with a 1/2 inch slit. Then she could not get the...

I apologize that you seem to have had such a horrible stay. We do have a night area for reception, that's not an uncommon practice after 11 pm. Most guests love our breakfast, should try the Texas shaped waffle station! The note from the local police is a courtesy to remind people not to leave valuables in their cars. Parking...

This sometimes happens when they spray and we are very sorry! I am so glad you enjoyed the facility and our...

Just needed a place to stay over night due to a very early morning flight. Everything was great! Bed was very comfortable and that was basically all we needed. Left to early for breakfast, but it looked really nice.

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...

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...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review. I respectfully disagree with your assessments. We just replaced carpet, we offer a full breakfast, our rooms have fridges and microwaves. Any hotel guest is welcome to use the pool, regardless of their occupation. We utilize a pest control company on a regular basis. Our housekeeping staff is...

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...

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...

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.
