“Industrial Truck Stop Motel”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

We chose this location in beautiful Corpus Christi because of a great deal on Booking.com. What the pictures didn't show was the surrounding area - an ugly stretch of empty highway, trucking company, and industrial complex. There is one restaurant nearby and it is in a word - bad.

The bed I'm currently laying in is more like an uncomfortable hammock than mattress.

On the bright side, the rooms are clean and well kept inside.

Bottom line, it's a good choice for a working man on a tight budget. Family vacationers with visions of beauty and relaxation should keep looking.

I stayed for a little over two months at HOJO in Corpus Christi, Tx. I am pleased to say that the stay was enjoyable and the service I received was exceptional. Staff was friendly and personable. My room was very comfortable. And I felt very safe the whole stay. Thank you to everyone at the Howard Johnson, Corpus Christi. I will stay again!

Room was OK all as expected, Friendly helpful staff. Location is kind of far out unless your working in the area. Highway exit entrance pretty limiting as far as in and out.

First off, we found no wash cloths, and when we asked the maid for one. We were told that they didn't have any. But the next morning, we went to front desk, they immediately had the maid bring some to us. The 1st. night the tv worked well. The next morning it wouldn't give us nothing but snow, the remote quit working all together. The computer has been slow since the beginning. The stove, shoved in a closet wouldn't boil water to boil an egg. The refridgeator Would not keep food cold.The toilet ran continuously after flushing. No hot water from sink or shower. Beds are comfortable. Found no bugs in room, yet. Carpet spotted either with bleach or mud from workers boots. To all our church friends and camping club friends, stay somewhere else. Motel management and corporate offices don't car, so don't bother with them. We made a costly mistake. This Howard Johnson not like the ones we grew up with, back in the days when these people were decent and cared about service and their image.
