The upkeep of the rooms do not match the lobby and common areas. The rooms need to be updated to keep up with the rest of the hotel.
But, the view to the marina was nice. And the clerk was very nice in accommodating our request.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wow What a Stay Dripping water from Air Condition vent & MORE
This management team needs to get their act together! Following are my complaints...hope it helps others!
1. The leak dripped all night long and not only kept all four of us awake, but from the old water stains on the carpet...well lets just say I sneezed the entire stay and suffered from sinus issues. The next morning I contacted management and was thinking about leaving until they told me I was hooked to pay the entire weekend, regardless of whether I stayed or left. Kudos to the manager who offered me a $50 lunch, a discount on the room, and the option to move to a new room for the second night. This made me feel better and after talking to the others in my party, we all decided to take the lunch offer and discount, however we thought we'd pay if forward and give back to the hotel by staying in the same room and leaving the offer of the other room for someone else. We placed towels underneath the leak to stop hearing the dripping noise and walked around the soaked carpet. However, we only ended up utilizing the lunch, since they stated at check out that the offer was only for either or (lunch or discount). In retrospect we should have made them give us the 2d room!
Take care of what the manager states...better yet get it in writing!!
2. We had a view (no access to the balcony) of the Marina, but only half a view of the Marina...you see the very tall bank building took the other half. We paid extra to have this view, and boy were we disappointed. Take care of what they market...do your due diligence, I should have done a better job of doing mine.
3. FOOD & BEVERAGE: The main menu items start in the low twenties. Which ate up our fifty dollar lunch quickly. HOWEVER, IF THERE WAS ANYTHING PLEASANT ABOUT OUR STAY, IT WAS WITH THE LADY THAT RUNS THE FOOD & BEVERAGE DEPARTMENT. If it wasn't for her courtesy, patience, professionalism, attitude to go out of her way to provide us with some good old fashion service...the entire weekend would have been ruined. She made the entire trip worthwhile! Don't stay here but do visit the FOOD & BEVERAGE and tip her well, she is worth it!
3. There were four in our party but they only gave us enough towels for two. We had to call and request extra towels...on both nights! The towels were delivered, eventually. Be patient!
4. Parking lot fee is ridiculous, especially for the price of the lodging that you are already paying. The parking is tight too with a small one way entrance/exit! Drive carefully.
Look this place would work if the price was lowered and the management (not the staff because the front desk staff did a great job) took some advance classes in how to take care of hotel guests. This hotel has seen better days, hope it comes back becasue it does have a great location in relation to the Marina.

Room was clean, comfortable.
VERY disappointed in no internet service. I was unable to work due to the lack of service, and the desk clerk seemed to be oblivious other than "I rebooted the system twice" with no effect.
Not sure I will stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garmet Comfortable bed, food was good, and staff was very helpful.
One major problem was the iron & ironing board that was in our room, twice we had to call for each. While I was ironing my clothes the board fell down while I was holding the hot iron. Guest services brought us another iron and board; but, they were not much better. We were in Corpus Christi for a conference and pressed clothes are a must.

the shower had hair coming from the shower drain on two occasions. Staff came once and fixed it temporally. the AC would not get cool and was dripping water on the floor. The room bill was supposed to be for the conference rate when i booked it but during checkout the front desk staff said that's to bad. Not once did the cleaning staff bring us clean towels. We had to ask each day for clean ones and by the end of the week there was a pile under the bathroom sink

I was at this hotel for a conference. Event rooms were not set up on time, food was late. My room had an awful mildew smell. Hotel's response was to send a guy up with a can of Lysol. Not ready for prime time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nlgonza Rooms with a view not worth it
The balcony door did not open we paid for a room with a view but we were not able to enjoy it. The bathroom was not really clean. There was no refrigerator. No convenient vending machines on our floor. The elevators had puddles of water in them from all of the kids at the pool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by juan27 overpriced. grouchy front desk
My boyfriend got the room with "a view" we had room 1801.
To see the view we had to be standing at the extremely dirty window.
He paid extra money to have this "view" our view was mainly a building next to us. I do not think we should have been charged extra for a view.
Secondly, the night staff worker has a horrible attitude.
When I go to a hotel I expect friendly workers. I hate feeling like a burden on someone, and she was so unhelpful.
We will definitely not be returning due to over priced and grouchy staff.

Staff and exterior of hotel were great. I heard some rooms were remodeled, but not ours. I travel a lot and I normally stay in better rooms for less money. Falls well below what my company paid for and we had several rooms. No one ask for my rewards number. Not enough help at check in desk. Rooms were not ready till after 5.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mshane Nice Hotel
The hotel was beautiful, the lobby,the location, the rooms, and the view. The staff was also very nice & helpful, they really went the extra mile for service both the lobby staff & the custodial. The only thing I did not like was the parking, 1. I don't think guest of the hotel should be charged for parking & 2. the garage was very cramped with small stalls that were extremely hard to park in. Also, the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 for sleep quality was the fact that sportbike style motorcycles kept ripping up the street and could hear them quite well even on the 10th floor. (not the hotels fault)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not HomeSweetHome Small and Overpriced
Considering what we were charged for this hotel room, you would think we would be given the presidential suite! Room was extremely small, bland, outdated, and came with NO amenities. They wanted to charge us extra to put in a mini fridge!! The room was not very clean when we got there. Guess they don't check behind things when they sweep or vacuum. The carpet is very old and has a bad odor of mold. Construction going on around pool area, which made it hard to relax.
Charged extra with room to have the buffet breakfast. Got down there around 7 am, and food was COLD!
Not located in the best area of town.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CC39 Filthy Room
The room was filthy and as soon as I walked in found a red pill lying on the floor and with a 2 yr. old that could have been horrible! It needed a good vacuuming and so did the hallway. For the three days we stayed there the same filth was on the floor in the hall. We arrived at 6 pm and had to wait 1 hour to get into our room. The tub did not drain, so you were standing in backed up water. One of the worst hotel rooms I have ever stayed at.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Priority Club member 1001 My nasty room
Staff was generally friendly and seemed to be trying their best. The problems with my room and the meeting situations lie directly at management's feet. My room's problem were long-term and not due to housekeeping not doing it's job but the company's refusing to check rooms for problems that require fixing and then making those repairs/upgrades. I'll let meeting organizers write about poor execution of the written meeting plan and schedule.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not taken Good place to stay but must dine out
My stay at this hotel was for a conference, so the discounted price was very good. I found the room (a king) comfortable but the furniture only allowed the TV to be viewed comfortably from the bed. The restaurant was only open for lunch for breakfast and lunch and the bar food service was very limited and expensive.

I've stayed at the Marina in years past when it was under other ownership and I was disappointed. Last year, when Holiday Inn had just taken over the hotel, I didn't stay there but friends told me they were still disappointed. This year I stayed at the Holiday Inn Marina because the other hotels were booked but I was really surprised and totally impressed with what Holiday Inn has done after a complete makeover from years past. The hotel was attractively appointed, the service staff was professional and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the restaurant was terrific. I'll stay at Holiday Inn Marina again on my next trip to Corpus Christi. Thank you Holiday Inn for making this a very enjoyable experience.

I requested help due to a leaking air conditioner vent and was promised maintenance to my room which never appeared. I was charged for parking after being told it was complimentary. My room service order was for a pizza and it arrived completely undercooked and the kids would not eat it. The free wifi was not working for more that 5 minutes at a time. The hotel and grounds were clean and well kept

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Maillady783 Personnel great, but remodeling detracts
The service staff from front desk to sales to maid & bell service are all eager to please.
The remodeling is being done in a hurry and leaves some areas incomplete such as loose plugs and plaster coming away from the wall.
The in house restaurant is more overpriced than usual for a hotel restaurant (unless you have children & can take advantage of the kids eat free policy) however they are many restaurants within walking distance so this is not that big a disadvantage.
All in all, the location & the outstanding service you receive outweigh the other minor defects.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jlaylwa Outdated and understaffed
Had to wait 20min just to check in. When I got to my room, I was disappointed with how outdated it was. Seemed rather dirty/dingy too. The desk didn't even have an office chair. The view was nice, but you couldn't step out onto the balcony so I was watching the gulf through dirty, stained windows. Very disappointed for as much as they charge.
