I am a construction worker working in the Corpus Christi area and needed a place to stay. From the photos on corpuschristi-hotel.com web site,(JoAnn), condo 1337 looked like a nice place and I agreed to the price for two months. The condo was NOTHING like the photos or the claims made on the "express check in page". The door opened directly onto the "master bedroom". There can be no privacy in this condo. There were no end tables by the bed, no dresser, the dishes were stacked in the open collecting dust as there were no enclosed cabinets for them. On the internet, photos showed easy chairs and a coffee table, NOT! I used my water coolers as a table for a month. There was one table in the main room and four high,(four foot) hard backed chairs. A bed, a couch, the table and chairs was the sum total of the furnishings in the condo. For a month, I basically lived out of a suitcase with no place to put my clothes. Because my credit card had already been charged, I bit the bullit and stayed the month. When I informed the owner i would not be staying longer, she told me I had to give her a 30 day cancellation notice or could be charged another month. I told her to go to H---. She had promised to deliver internet service, which did not happen so I ran my own expenses up using a wireless card. AND the kicker at the end was when the person staying in the next condo, (also owned by JoAnn), and I discovered our keys opened each other's door. I know my neighbor told me once before I moved in that someone had opened her door with a key, (condo 1339), and she was afraid for her safety. How many keys are out there? To top it off, I am a smoker. I realize that many places have regulations. The condo was a no smoking condo. I accept that. I have stayed in many places where you must smoke outside. In 1337, I smoked on the balcony, yet when I moved out, I am being hit with a cleaning charge for dumping my ashtray into the garbage inside the condo. I realize there may be some very nice condos in this facility, and, the location is very nice: close to the beach, the Lexington, the aquarium, etc. However, I would not recommend this place for any type of vacation or like in my case a long term stay.
