Best Western Paradise Inn
Ranked #27 of 79 Hotels in Corpus Christi
Reviewed March 17, 2012

When I first booked this room, I was a little dissapointed that it was $160 for a night. However, in my experience with Best Westerns, they are nice and include breakfast so I was not to swayed by the price. When we first arrived, the staff was courteous, but when we walked in the room it smelled terrible. There was only one towel in the room and we booked a three person room. We showered and the bath was clogged and tub filled quickly. Granted this was after we went to the beach, so the water was full of sand and dirt and the next person needed to shower in that. Then breakfast the next day....a joke. BY FAR THE WORST BEST WESTERN I HAVE STAYED AT! I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN. BEWARE!

Granted, the hotel was just great, everything was in perfect working order, as usual with a Best Western, but the bill was almost $160, including tax, and that is just overpriced!

If you don't like mold smell, avoid this motel. The very instant you open the room door, the unmistakable odor of mold dominates the room. The motel is old and in desperate need of new carpeting. The continental breakfast is a waste of time; only four tables in a tiny room crowded with people. Swimming pool was small and my daughter said the water was green; she wouldn't go in. I will not stay at this dump again... I have been vacationing in Corpus Christi for years and this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in

Great price w/ corp disc. great location. Room very clean. A/C did not work that good. Just would not cool room very good. Room is so big, the a/c would kick off alot not cooling room off. May have been a bad unit. Had to say on just one night stay.

The location is great; even though it's on the main hwy leading to the oceanfront some people might think it would be noisy but it's not. The most stunning feature of the hotel is its rooms. Our room was very clean and neat with a beautiful and romantic decor; when you see the hotel from the exterior you will never guess that the room are amazing. Bathroom was quite small but very clean also. The hotel offers free internet and free breakfast which was good but the bkf area was too small and gets crowded. There is also a small pool.
Overall it was an excellent stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone vising CC.

Second stay at this hotel, last stay was 2 years ago. Hotel was in same condition, only complaint was the bed was a little soft for my taste. Impressed that the owner lives onsite.

Noticed that the owner had several cans of touch up paint on site (across from ice maker) and that the second exit has a gate that is closed and locked at night. The staff is friendly. The grounds are very well kept, noticed the staff cleaning the parking lot every day.

If your worried about upstairs walking noise, get a second floor room, as you can hear people walking.

The room has a single cup coffee maker, microwave and fridge (more like a freezer).

I will stay there again.

The desk clerk had trouble checking us in. Traffic noise was bad. Carpeting in the room looked very dirty and was sticky. No soundproofing; someone in an adjacent room turned on the TV at 4:00 a.m. and the sound level was disturbing. Would not recommend to anyone.
