“Will not be back”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed there this past weekend for two nights and let me start by saying that the room was a nice size room with a average bed. I did appreciate that they offered firm and soft pillows. What I didn't like was the fact that we didn't have our room cleaned even though we asked them to do it 3 times the last time I asked I physically had to go downstairs to ask them to do it and all they said was oh yeah I forgot to tell you housekeeping is gone for the day. WOW really! I was like ok could you at least take up some towels for the room. (Oh no... But you can pick them up on your way back in.) Another thing that we really didn't like was the fact that the rooms thermostat was way on the other side of the room so it was either freezing or hot. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel because it was over at 9:30 no good to us way too early. Lastly we were really annoyed by the fact that house keeping knocked at our door at 9am on the day of our check out. In her words "to make sure we had not left". Keep in mind that we had the privacy door hang on the door and check out wasn't till 12pm. All I have to say is never again! Spend $200 a night elsewhere.

I stay at this hotel every week and LOVE it! The staff is great and the rooms are perfect. I travel every week for business and it is always a good feeling to come to a hotel where everyone knows me by name. The staff working front desk always greet me with a smile and actually make me feel like they are happy to see me. The rooms are always clean, the bed is extremely comfortable, and the variety in their breakfast is AWESOME! I highly recommend anyone traveling to Corpus Christi for business to select the Holiday Inn Express on Oakhurst.

We stayed here this past weekend. The outside was well kept. Front desk & staff was professional, great service. Staff member E.D. at front desk greeted us with a warm welcome. The room was excellent. I was looking for cleanliness and it was extra clean! Room also very updated and modern & the ac worked great. Has indoor pool and fitness center, both were well kept and very clean. Breakfast is good, had great options too. Maintenance fixed a minor issue very quickly for us. Surrounded by awesome restaurants. Also an Grocery store nearby with a pharmacy, very convienant. A night spot is nearby and we could hear the music on Saturday. The ac drowned out the sound for us. But if you are a light sleeper try requesting a room on opposite side of the night spot. It did not bother us one bit though. But overall if you are looking for a really nice, clean, comfortable hotel with a professional friendly staff, this s the place! We will definitely book here again!

This was our second visit. We enjoyed the first time, but this was even better. Breakfast area was clean and the food was good. Friendly reception people and the room was all that we needed it to be. This property is very close to some good restaurants and Padre Island Staples Mall. It is a good choice for Corpus Christi.

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. Excellent customer service. They promptly brought me the items I requested. The front desk was very informative regarding the surrounding area, even had maps printed out to hand out. The room had a microwave and a refridgerator. The complimentary breakfast had a variety of food for everyone to choose from. I left an expensive item behind, they found it and mailed it to me the next business day. I would recommend this establishment.
