Emerald beach hotel is at a great location, awesome for someone who wants to view sunrise and sunset and have an easy access to the beach. It's quite an older building, but still maintained. Good and close by restaurants.Nevertheless it was a fine stay. We stayed just for one night.

This is what we were looking for when we booked our Corpus trip. I don't care about new/old and this hotel is older, but it is clean and our experience was great. Everything worked perfectly and best of all is that it's right on the water! We asked for a balcony room overlooking the water and I was so happy...

Hotel location is right by the beach. Not many restaurants next to it, but several are within 20-30min walking distance. There is a bar on site and usually crowded with fun and laid back people in the evening. The indoor pool is surrounded by a dozen rooms, so the parents can keep an eye on the little ones, but it...

Decent hotel with access to beach which not many have on bay. Beach bar but hours are hit miss when we went. Nice staff and good bar inside. Dinner place there also with decent food. Papa johns delivers if you get a night you're too tired to leave like after a long flight. Shuttle to airport also available. Clean rooms...

I love this place. The rooms are clean, staff is friendly. The last 3 times we have stayed here people just walk into our room. I don't know if it is a glitch in the system that says out room is not booked. I first time it was in the middle of the night and a family walked into our...

We pulled it..the hotel was very old and out dated..we still checked in...and checked right back out..I refuse to pay 130.00 a night for a very old hotel, with dirty carpet, rusty elevators, and it smelled like roach spray with water leak stains on the ceiling. I'm not for sure how it received 4 starts.

We had room 412. It was updated , nice, clean and great view of the water and shoreline. We stayed here for an Elton John concert. Glad we picked this place. Has a decent restaurant down stairs, and we ordered room service and they brought it up. I would recommend asking for a room with a "view". It's definitely an...

The rooms are very clean and beds are super comfortable. The location is amazing with a access to a private beach. The staff is not very friendly, but you don't need to have much contact with them- the only minus is the parking- you have to drive around for a while, waiting for someone to leave before you can find...
