Had always considered this hotel to be a desireable location and from the outside it appears to be very nice- this description holds true in the lobby area as well, however the room was seriously in need of updating, especially the digustingly stained carpet. The balcony door was unaccessable and this was disappointing cause we were unable to open it to enjoy the seabreeze as opposed to the
Musty, humid driven scent of the tired old carpet. In additiin the parking area was consumed completely by people visiting the nearby bars and un-policed and In the am it was littered with beer bottles. As a final insult, we returned home on monday after two nights there to find our entire family had headlice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lou67 A great place to stay
My Mother, 2 Aunts, and cousin arrived in the area looking for a place to stay on the beach. While traveling down to the area, we reviewed several review about various hotels in the area. Most of which were not favorable to other hotels in that area.
My cousin and I walked into the Lobby after being kindly greeted by Valet personnel.
The place looked very clean and inviting. The hotel desk clerks answered our questions. Although the beach was just right across the street, the older women in our party wanted to stay right on the beach. We drove exactly 1 mile down the road to another Holiday Inn that was on the beach. However, the place wasn't very inviting, looked small, and the desk clerks were not very friendly. It was also much higher in price.
We got back in our car and drove back to this place. We highly recommend this. Again, the service was outstanding and I made sure to tell the managers that next morning. The food and the atmosphere were wonderful! The pool was great! I just wish it didn't close so early.
When you're in the area, stay here!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bferd1 Didn't care about customer service
Issue #1- When we arrived I left one of my bags in the lobby or the parking garage. Front desk and security made weak attempts to locate it and never once asked for my name in case they did find it. I called security twice and they said they would call me back but never did.
Issue #2- Pull out sofa had no sheets on it when we opened it to go to bed, it took them about 30 minutes to show up with sheets and no pillows we had to wait another 15 minutes for those.
I would probably try the other Holiday inn down the street or the Omni

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RodriguezFamily Very accommodating
I stayed in this hotel with my husband and 15 month old daughter for 3 nights last month. We live in AR but my husands family lives in Corpus and we were attending a wedding on site and decided to stay here. The staff was very friendly and more than accommodating to our needs from the begining. Originally we were in a King room which was fine however I usually was upgraded to a Jr Suite based on my rewards memebership. Upon contacting the front desk we were promptly moved into one. Once in the room we requested a fridge for my daughters milk. Within minutes it was delivered. Although the rooms could use updating they were clean and the lobby was very modernized. Lastly, we attended a wedding reception in one of the banquet rooms. It was a beautiful space and everyone was pleased with the service. I would hightly recommend this lodging and will be staying there on future trips to Corpus Christi.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BigIHGfan employees great but overworked
This is a great property but worn out and not maintained. The carpets are stained and not cleaned, the dust ruffle on the second unused bed in my room had vomit on it, and on the carpet beneath it. This had been there for a while. Sadly I did not notice this until the last day. I do not normally inspect these things and only discovered when looking for a shoe. The overall cleanliness of the room was not acceptable. I understand worn out carpet and but the room was not cleaned daily, especially the bathroom. I did mention all these things at check out and the two others guests checking out at the same time chimed in with their comments. One saying this was the nastiest Holiday Inn he had ever used. As I said this property has good bones and great employees. Everyone was friendly but there did not seem to be any follow through. My entrance light was burned out, the bellhop said he would notify maintenance but I never got a new light blub. There were issues with valet parking using employees from other areas to park vehicles.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aalvarez58 It was an awesome stay and staff was very helpful
After drving 6+ hours we came in on a friday and luckliy our room was ready and we were able to unpack. The guy outside with the cars was spectaular. He was able to let us park there while we unloaded and offered his assistance on mostly everything. The pook was nice but often too packed to enjoy. The bar was a huge hit for us as we would often go out there for a drink.The rooms were a good size and housekeeping was very attentive as to what was needed in the room. We had a wedding to attend the rooms was cleaned before we came back fro mthe aquarium so we could shower and get ready. Over all best exp we had but the only flaw to it was parking. As much as we paid for the hotel parking should be FREE!!!!!!!
Also also like my kids ate free :)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jeffheff77 Terrible Room / Poor staff
Arrived at the property in afternoon checked in and had dinner. Had recently checked with the hotel to get a additional room and none was available. Went back to the room and discovered it backed up to the elevators and heard them ALL night. Went to the desk the next morning and told front desk about my stay and they accommodated me with a new room. When I questioned them on why I got stuck with that room they said they were booked up but had some cancellations. I was blown away with that response as a platinum member I stay at your hotel a lot and why did I drop to the bottom of the list. NOT HAPPY. Note I have been staying at this particular facility for over 20 years ( under other names) first bad experience but it will be my last.

The carpet in the rooms are old with stains. I found two baby bugs on the floor the day I was checking out. I would not have stayed here another night. This hotel needs updating and better maintaining. The price that I paid was a discount rate due to a conference I was working and that price was crazy high for the type of hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Coyote40 Great location but poor service
While checking in I was not acknowledged as a platinum member and offer that I had purchased (deluxe stay with breakfast for 2) was not either. Had to go to front desk the next morning to get breakfast passes. No mention of where elevators were located or where restaurant was during check-in. I did not stay 2nd night and moved to a different hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick78 Good but not great
I'm just picky, but for a hotel in this price range, there should be a fridge and microwave in the room. Also for that amount, I should get some free breakfast! There is a paid restaurant on site but didn't seem like a lot of people were using it. Despite that, the room was clean, no problems with anything in the room! It was comfortable and very nice view. Just picky about the other items I mentioned. The WiFi was tricky to use but you just have to go to a website or two for the log in screen to pop up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MsDonna3 The front desk service was awesome
The moment we walked in we were greeted and welcomed. The friendly lady who checked us in was friendly and helpful. I THINK her name was Jenalle . She gave us a map and coupons that we could use on our visit in Corpus. The Hotel was very nice and clean with all friendly staff. The one thing was the door to our room was not working properly had to get another card. Got locked in once but was helped quickly. I will go again to this hotel everytime I visit Corpus. Loved it !!!!!!!!!!!!

Under the extreme curmistances of the very busy July 4th major wkend situation at this HI and in Corpus the staff did a great job trying to help everyone; however, even us PC mbrs (my self a Palt) didnot receive top priority that we should. Just to many guets trying to check out, rooms cleaned, and others (like me) checking in.
They need more help on these special weeks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jasftry Okay but not great.
There was debris on the floor out side our room when we checked in on Thursday afternoon and it was still there on Sunday morning when we checked out. There was also lots of small items of trash in the hallway leading me to believe that housekeeping did not vacuum the hallway for the four days we were there.
We left our room at 8:00AM on Friday and returned just after 5:00PM to find that Housekeeping had not serviced our room. We had to search out a housekeeper to get coffee and fresh towels.
On Thursday night two separate hotel employees knocked on our door to inform us that the rollaway bed we ordered was on its way though we had not requested a rollaway bed.
The service in the restaurant was extremely slow even though it was never more than 50% full.
All employees were friendly and pleasant but as a Priority Club member and frequent traveler it seems that management at this Holiday Inn is not up to par.

this hotel has a great view and location. easy to walk to downtown restaurants. the room was nice and not cheap since it had a view, but could hear the elevator shaft noises all day and night prevented a good night's sleep. mentioned the problem when checking out and the attendant only offered pity about the issue. the room was overpriced for this problem and the staff seemed unconcerned. also could never get the wifi to work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lighthouse56 Not What I Expected
I arrived at 2.00PM on Monday July 8th. When I went to check into the room, there were two glasses of wine or some sort of drink in front of my door. I went in for a few minutes and then went to the front desk ands spoke with Jessica. She said she would get that taken care of. I left for two hours and came back. The glasses were still there. I went into the room for a while and when I left for supper, I told a young man at the desk about the glasses. He said he would take care of it. An hour later when I cam back, they were still there. I waited till the next morning when I went to breakfast and Jessica was working again. I told here that the glasses still had not been picked up. She sighed and told another person that was there. "Go get the glasses". She acted like I was really bothering her. The breakfast was another bad experience. I waited at the door for almost 5 minutes before any one greeted me. The she walked me thru the dining room and said "You need to wait outside till we get a table. There were several tables for two available. I waited 10 minutes and she never came back. I left. People were swimming at midnight and it was hard to sleep. Overall bad experience. I think the room is way over priced. Other hotels have nicer rooms but for less. Won't stay here again.

The hotel staff was very accommodating. Our room smelled like smoke and they moved us to another room no problem. It was quite a bit more than I usually pay for the same service. But it was the 4th of July. The food was good at the breakfast buffet.

I enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. I was surprised by the cost of the vending. It was under the cost of any vending I have seen at hotels or just general vending.
The fitness room was great!

We were given by the front desk the option to stay until 2pm on 29th June which is nice. On this day, we returned to our room 12:30 pm only to find our stuff taken out of the room as it was already cleaned. Good thing the cleaner was in the same floor still cleaning, otherwise I could have not find my other stuff. I found my stuff inside the cleaner's cart (bundled in a plastic) and others in the trash.Hotel front desk and housekeeping should coordinate to avoid disappointment.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PlatinumPC Not my best experience for a get away to the beach
First issue was the $10 charge for parking ($15 for valet). When there is plenty of free parking outside the hotel. This is Corpus Christie not South Beach. I recommend that you adjust your prices for hotel guests to be a little more in line with the current market. Hotel was trying very hard to look upscale, the lobby and meeting rooms are beautiful, but the bath tub in the room was VERY dated (1970's or 1980's). The price for the room wasn't bad and the location was fantastic especially for boaters. One last thing and the thing that probably soured my attitude about my stay here. The valets were a little too familiar, really boarder line rude. On two separate occasions, once even noticed by my wife. It was nothing serious enough to complain about but enough to make us reflect negatively about our stay at this property. We are going to try the Express out in Port Aransas and will hopefully have better luck for a local get-away spot.
