We woke up in the morning to find my counterpart bitten all over by bugs. They told us it was just sprayed and a guy showed up when it was time to leave to spray again. They showed little concern, not too friendly, not really clean. There was some remodeling effort, but they have a ways to go. Some intense training of staff is in order.

They should have offered to refund our money.

I don't know where average price of$92 comes from. We had a regular room w/ two full beds and it was $109 per night during the week. Very run down and not very clean. First day the cleaning people didn't even clean our room. They came around 9:00am and asked if we needed fresh towels but did not clean. They did clean on day two but did not leave enough towels. There was no Internet access. I asked about it and the receptionist told me that they would reboot the network and that I should have access. I never did. When I was checking out there was another woman complaining and they were giving her the same song and dance about rebooting. I told them that I was never able to connect and they just got me checked out as soon as possible. So I would say if you really need Internet access don't stay here. The breakfast was good, the pool is beautiful and the location can't be beat but the quality of the rooms, linens, towels, and service are poor.

The exterior and the room looked to be recently renovated, but the paint job was poorly done. People were coming from the beach to use the pool. At one time, we saw about 13 young adults come in all at once from the beach. While we were waiting to sit at a table, a family were changing their clothes under their towels in front of us. Needless to say, they didn't have a room at the hotel. One of the residence complained to the receptionist , but nothing was done. To top it off, they didn't have enough parking spots.

The receptionist wasn't friendly over the phone or when we checked in.

Apparently a former La Quinta with the next stop being an econolodge or similar and that not far in future by the looks of things. Quality should not retain this as part of their brand without significant renovation. It is convenient to airport and industries out in that part of town but not convenient to much else. It was clean and quiet but otherwise somewhat shabby, thin towels, the previously mentioned missing smoke detector, no clock radio. Breakfast adequate. Somewhat unusual for a Quality there is a managers reception some evenings.

After reading some of the reviews on here, we were very nervous about seeing bugs. We didn't see any.
The room itself was okay -- the wireless internet worked well.
The smoke detector was missing (there was a hole in the ceiling). The clock radio didn't work.
It was very noisy in the morning, since lots of kids were playing in the parking lot (the second day they had left, so it was quieter).
The hotel is easy to access, and right near the highway and the airport.
The breakfast was okay, no waffles.

I visted Corpus for a convention, my first impression of the hotel was that it is old and need a serious renovation, but I did give it a chance. The next morning when I got out of bed a saw a huge roach on my bed. Then when I arrived at the convention I overheard a lady talking about a roach being in her room so I asked what was her hotel, and she said Quality Inn and Suites. I don't recommend this place at all, I walked around with shoes on the whole time.
