We were able to bring our crated dog to stay with us in a room on the 2nd floor. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean and the mattress was thick and plush. Rooms had balconies, some with an ocean view.More

Recently stayed over Christmas visiting son stationed at the Coast Guard station. King room had a fridge, microwave, and nice big flat screen. Nice view of the marina and bay. Bed was firm and comfortable. Breakfast was pretty typical. Awesome location and accommodations for the price. No problems!
For starters, this hotel seems very clean, has nice amenities, and the staff are very friendly. The WiFi speed is decent, and the breakfast buffet is plentiful. The view from the 10th floor is very lovely and pretty with the Christmas decorations. However, I would never recommend this hotel to anyone, due to the excessive noise from the bars next door.
Tonight (my last night here), I have heard numerous car alarms, police sirens, motorcycles, the beat of the base and cheering of the crowds from the bar next door. Right now Usher's "Yeah" is playing-- if I didn't need to sleep perhaps it would be a lot of fun. It is not just the beat to the music you can hear, it is actually loud enough to sing along. I suppose on the bright side I have had the chance to reconnect with old favorite tunes, but 2am is not the time I want to be doing that.
This hotel has a blessing and a curse, its location. My stay has been on a Friday and Saturday night which is a problem in itself with the bars not closing until 2am. Things are very walkable, but I think I would have much preferred a slight drive and had a good night's sleep.
UPDATE: Remember the song "ghetto superstar?" Amazing remix... playing next door as I finish up this review. Ugh. I need some sleep!!
Thank you for your feedback. We do have a great location but like you mentioned we are close to the night life in Corpus Christi especially during a busy weekend. We do try our best to place our guest further away from the louder end of the hotel, But a when we are sold out that is not possible for every guest. I do apologize for you negative experience and if you have any more concerns or questions please feel free to contact me directly at the hotel. 361-883-5111
My father and I recently stayed two different times in four days at the Best Western Marina Grand Hotel. The first night was very nice. It was a bit of a trek from the parking garage to the hotel, but the rooms were fine and the breakfast was very nice. The second time was not as good. I was placed in room 500...don't get booked there! It was hard to control the temperature, and some noise (I think it was a generator outside the window) made a noise that sounded like someone was vacuuming the rug outside my door - all night long. I'd already gone downstairs to try and find out why my computer wouldn't connect to the internet (the first night it was spotty, the second time non-existent. When I went to the front desk they told me to call the helpline. The helpline said the equipment was old.)
As frequent travelers, my wife and I agree that this Best Western hotel is our favorite! Not only do the remodeling changes add beauty to the already beautiful hotel, but the location, cleanliness AND cheerful and helpful staff just make this hotel a 10!!! The full breakfast provided with your stay is one of the best! It's not all carbs BUT provides protein as well! Which makes for a very well balanced breakfast! And the staff who oversees the breakfast area and food are so helpful and everyone's always seen with a smile; from the time you walk into the main lobby, to the dining area and right down to the cleaning staff! We recommend this hotel with 10's across the rating scales!
