We were looking for a quick 2 day trip to corpus. Were college students so we needed somewhere cheap but I really wanted a balcony with a view of the water. The Grand Marina provided both. Its not super luxurious but its far from terrible and we weren't planning on spending too much time in the hotel anyway. The front desk attendant was very helpful and listed all the rooms they had available, we chose one on the north side (better view) on the 9th floor and it was perfect. Breakfast is on the 11th floor and it was standard but the view was wonderful up there. Tips: Dont swim in the bay, make the drive to Mustang or Padre island to avoid jelly fish. Dont pay for Padre Island National Seashore unless you are planning on camping. There is access to the beach right before the entrance that is free as long as you have a parking permit. Booking online is 5% cheaper than their normal rate however we found a coupon in a hotel coupon book on the way there that was even cheaper, so its up to you. Also check the brochure box at the hotel for attractions, great for finding things to do, really great for coupons. We got a free game of mini golf and a coupon for the Lexington which I highly suggest.
