Econo Lodge Inn & Suites
Ranked #45 of 79 Hotels in Corpus Christi
Reviewed July 3, 2012

Stayed here one night, total cost approx $100, however it was the start of the July 4th holiday week & the town was getting packed out & expensive, so price was comparable to other properties that were advertising & this place had better customer reviews.

Start with the cons:
- not on the water / beach, thus no "views" and no walking access to beach
- not super close to anything / immediate walking distance
- in a meh part of town (light industrial type area); if you want to stay in a ritzy neighborhood, this isn't it
- not near a Starbucks (for those travelers for whom that is very important)

However there are a lot of pros:
- property itself was nice & well kept & felt safe
- rooms large, clean & well maintained
- small pool & hot tub -- again clean & well maintained
- continental breakfast in am
- staff were pleasant
- very convenient to Whataburger Statium & the water park (~2 min drive away) and to downtown with its various restaurants (~3 min drive) and the museum zone & the ocean walk (~5 min drive), all on surface streets. Super convenient if you're going to a game or to the water park.
- super easy freeway access: right off a freeway exit that was well marked but not busy. Easy to find, hop off & on.

Bottom line: I'd stay there again, it's a good value. If the location works for you -- then you could pay a lot more for a place that's less nice.

This is a very reasonably priced hotel with the best management and service I have ever received, way better than expensive fancy places! If youre looking for fancy this isn't it, but if you're looking for good value, it's perfect. Comfortable bed, breakfast included - and a really great staff. :-)

My wife and I wanted to spend a few days (at least two) on the coast and chose this Hotel, as the writing advertised it is a new hotel and they are a part of the Choice Hotels chain, which we feel provide a good quality for the money. This turned out to be not such a good choice. Although the staff was real friendly and accommodating, they even let us check in prior to the 3:PM time, which was helpful, but the room smelled of moisture. Nothing I could put my finger on other than moisture turning to mould. Since the lady (at check in) had told us they were limited in the amount of room, we did not bother asking to check other rooms to see if they had similar problems. We also found that their prices were higher than the Comfort Suites at San Antonio and Waco, which were far superior hotels. In the end, we were so disappointed with this location that we only stayed one night in Corpus Christi

I am sorry to hear about your disappointment with our hotel. We strive to do all we can and love feedback. I would like to thank you for stating we are a new hotel (the hotel is actually from 2001) but upkeep is a priority for us. In regards to the smell during your stay, we do rent many rooms and the summer brings elevated humidity to our region. Thus we have a check in at 3:00pm which allows us to properly service the room and air them for our next guests. This is not a reflection of our property and I hope that you will give us a second chance to show you why we are 2012 Platinum Award Winner (Top 3%) of all Econo Lodges nationwide.

I live in Corpus Christi, on 5-10-12 a storm hit our neighborhood and we lost power till Monday the 14th. On the Sunday the 13th we booked a room at the Econo Lodge. I work for the Texas General Land Office and I travel all over the State working and have stayed in many hotels, I do have to say that this was a very pleasant stay, the room was very clean, it smelled fresh and the beds were great. I would also like to thank Sweta at the front Desk, She was Excellent, My Personnel overall rating is a 10, Thank you Econo Lodge, and the people that make it what it is. "Thank You"

Room Tip: Just do Non Smoking if you don't smoke.

I absolutely loved this hotel! The staff was friendly and the rooms where very comfortable. It's right down the street from the main street it's literally like a 5 min drive till you hit the beach, not a lot of restaurants around it though. I would stay here again when I go back to corpus (:
