“Clean & Comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

We stayed at the hotel during the 4th of July weekend only staying one night in that location but the hotel was very clean and comfortable. Can not comment on the breakfast because we did not make it down in time for it.

We took a family vacation to Corpus during the week of the 4th of July and decided to stay at this Holiday Inn Express. It was a great choice !!! We arrived in Corpus a few hours before check-in time and decided to visit the Texas State Aquarium, which was a lot of fun, before going to the hotel. Arriving at the hotel almost two hours before check-in we were worried that we would not be able to check in, I went to the front desk to check in and the front desk clerk advised me that check-in wasn't for another two hours. After explaining to her that we had just driven 5 hours with a 5 & 6 year old and had already taken in some sightseeing she immediately got us a room.

The hotel is very clean and the staff is very, very friendly. Our room was on the 4th floor where there was a coin opperated washer & dryer, which came in handy, and an ice machine. Our room was clean and spacious. This was our first time staying at a Holiday Inn Express and based on our stay at this one we will consider HI Express in the future.

The only con that we found at this hotel was that they only had one elevator which depending on the time of day could take a while to come, outside of that this is a great hotel.

We stayed in a suite which was well worth the extra price for a family with small children. The kids used the extra space as a play area. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. There is a little kitchenette in the room which was another perk for a family traveling with small children. The most important amenity for us was that it had a full bath( we stayed at the Staybridge last year and loved it all except it didn't have a tub). The only unpleasant part of the stay, was the mob scene that ensues at the free breakfast buffet, but I suspect this is true of all free breakfast buffets. This will probably be the place we stay when we're in Corpus.

First, the pluses: spotlessly clean & great, comfortable bed. Staff was very friendly. Express breakfast was adequate & breakfast room staff was attentive to customers' needs, restocking items & keeping tables clear. Free WiFi worked fine after a few hiccups getting it set up. Very close to several restaurants such as Outback Steakhouse.

The minuses caused me to downgrade my rating. The deadbolt on the door was impossible to lock. The water valve for tub / shower "free spun" at the wall causing extreme difficulty getting the water turned on (or off!) and regulating temperature. The "adjustable" desk chair refused to be budged, and broadband Internet connection did not work at all.

My advice: check basic operation of all your room's needed features before you settle in; request another room if needed. Traveling companions in the room next door had none of these problems.

Good hotel, as most HI Express are, but this one needs some cleaning and more responsive service. While the breakfast was good, most of the chair seats were badly stained and in need of cleaning. Our desk lamp light did not work and was not fixed while we were there, even though we reported it to the front desk. We had rented three rooms and are Priority Club members, I expected a little better service.

I recently emailed the CC HIE regarding some reservation conflicts (conflicts that were no fault of the HIE CC) for an upcoming stay and I was super delighted with the rapid and pleasant response that I received from Julie. She easily resolved my issues and answered my follow-up question before I even asked them as if she was a mind reader. I stayed at this hotel previously and everything about the hotel was top-notch. No need to look any further that the HIE CC. The Staybridge across the street also looks like a nice hotel but don't forget that you only get 5 points for every $ spent at the Staybridge opposed to the 10 points for every $ spend at the HIE!

This is a fairly new property and is worth staying at while in Corpus Christi. Like most hotels in this city, it is overpriced. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good and staff is courteous. Only one flaw: fabric seats in the dining area are gross. Every chair has stains, making them look like they belong in a cheap restaurant. Clerk said they were due to be cleaned, but that should have happened long ago.
