“4th of July in Corpus”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Phenomenal location and was a very clean hotel! We were quite surprised with our stay there. Staff was extremely gracious and professional. Very accommodating. The only surprise was that we were quoted one rate from corporate and the local hotel honored the rate for one night and upped the rate for the following two nights. So make sure and confirm your room rate at the local level. All in all, a great experience! Breakfast was superb! In fact it was so good, we ate there every morning. The breakfast area had a wraparound view of the Corpus. Every room faces the marina, as I said earlier, it was exquisite! Will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: If you have pets, there is a pet floor.

Priceline customers watch out for this place. The Hotel finds any technicality to fail to honor a Priceline booking. It is also next to a loud nightclub so don't bring the family your parents will not get any sleep. I worked closely with Denise to try to secure a second booking but unfortunately I couldn't find a reason to pay a 4 star price for a 2 star hotel.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

My husband and I were looking for a fairly nice hotel at a good price near the middle of Corpus Christi, and I think we found it with the Best Western Marina Grand Hotel. There was free parking, an inviting lobby, and nice size rooms with a view of the Marina area. Everything was clean, but could probably use a more modern update of paint and accessories. The breakfast and the "Lounge" were on the 11th floor, with fantastic views from that level of the area. We did receive a coupon for a free drink in the lounge when we checked in.

Pluses:
The beautiful view
The location
Free Parking
Nice Breakfast (eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, fruit, waffles, yogurt, breads, etc while we were there)
Friendly folks for check in and check out.

The cons:
AC and plumbing were loud but functional.
Elevators were very slow.
They could use an "auto opening" door for folks bringing in luggage.
My husband didn't like the beds - I found no problem with them.

Overall, a good value. Could use a little updating.

Room Tip: Better views the higher you go - we had great ones from the 5th floor on the north side.

This hotel pretends to be high class, but, if this is high class, I would rather stay on the beach.

The people were nice and the view was great, but that was about it.

Our first night there, a nearby bar began playing extremely loud music which continued until nearly 2 AM. We called the front desk at about midnight and were told the police had been called. We were given to understand that this was an unusual event.

I finally got to sleep around 3 AM (seething, of course), and had to get up three hours later.

I talked to hotel staff, and they said the police had come, but that their "noise meter" was broken, and they did nothing but hang around for about half-an-hour and then leave.

Yay, police. Good job.

My wife did some research and found that several other people had complained about the noise from bars in the area, with complaints going back almost a year.

Just to keep griping, one elevator door hit me on two separate occasions, bruising me slightly. My wife is disabled and unsteady on her feet, and I am glad the door hit me and not her. The plumbing noise is terrible (another common complaint), and, on more than on occasion, I seemed to hear someone using our bathroom.

My review of this hotel is a positive one. Reserved though Expedia and paid a discount over the website price. We went to receive our two free drinks and yes they were not the good stuff but heck they were free! I did like the breakfast, especially the waffles! The breakfast area was not even full, but consider we stayed during the week. Great location, very centralized around downtown and area attractions. The double room was spacious enough for my wife and me plus our children.

Stayed here for a family vacation. Location is great, but the condition of the Hotel is poor. Rooms are small as well as bathroom. The plumbing is outdated, pipes are loud when showering or flushing, especially nice boring rooms. My bed smelled strongly of urine and the bathroom mirror was dirty upon check in. Breakfast was OK if you like powdered eggs. They give. You 2 free drinks per night. Either cheap beer or wine, after that be careful, I paid $12 for a Margarita. A bit pricey for the room $152 plus ax, my sister aid $199 for the same type room. Visible and audible construction going on on the 2nd floor-location of pool. This was an eyesore to see. I think management should offer a discount for the on-going construction.

We enjoyed the breakfast and the room was very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. One staff member even went down to the lobby to get my mom change for the coke machine even though it looked like she was leaving for the day.
