This hotel is in dire need of a full renovation... This is an older property that needs some major overhaul, and up-keep. The hotel is situated right on the beach, which is a redeeming quality. Beautiful views and weather. When I first arrived at the property the first thing I noticed is the difficult if not confusing traffic pattern in teh valet/registration area. There were a bunch of golf carts blocking the way, and arrows the contradicted the traffic pattern all through the parking lot. When i checked in the front desk was very pleasant and accomodating. I had key in hand within 3 - 5 minutes and un-packing my vehicle. The elevators were extremely small and almost unusuable by the valet carts(barely fit). The room was old and dated with mid to late 90's decor. I guess much as can be expected from a beach hotel. the room was comfortable and the matresses were satisfactory. My nose started burning the instant i arrived in the room. I believe it to be mold. Now I know mold is prevelant everywhere..just seemed to be an inordinate amount at this property. I checked out after two days due to the issue. I was directed by the front desk to a Staybridge in Corpus Christi...more on that next. One other thing...I know this was a holiday Inn and there is not free breakfast...but would it break you to have a coffee area in the lobby in the morning?
