    Perhaps I am a grumpy old man. I made this booking as our plans changed at the last minute. Walking into the hotel we said to each other that we had made a mistake..... The hotel looked as if it had not been looked after for a long time. We asked for quiet room. Even after turning off the air conditioning there was a constant humming sound. The decor was a unpleasant mustard shade. The room was extremely basic and the bathroom seem as small step up from a public toilet. It was clean. The wash basin was in the corridor outside the bathroom. Most strange. Compared to the room we had at Best Western in Houston they were worlds apart.

    « Clean but outdated »

    Arrived and the A/C was blasting. The bed was comfortable and view was great. Seen the pier and beautiful boats outside my balcony. Pool was ok and breakfast had a great selection. Only upset was the A/C unit was very noisy, lack of hot water and shower was not working.

    The hotel was clean and comfotable. They were courteous enough to give our visitors a pass so they can park there on the hotel lot. The view was nice beause we faced the water. Always satisfied when I have stayed there.

    « A Corpus Christi Grand View »

    I have visited Corpus Christi many times and this Best Western is my favorite because of it's location, view, proximity to recreation and places to eat, and having the most gracious staff. Facility is clean, has secure parking, decor is beautiful, internet, breakfast and staff all are great.

    « Best Western in Corpus Christi »

    High rise hotel, with stunning views of Corpus Christi's small boat harbor, the bay and the bridge! If you've never seen the brige, it is a stunning steel structure with really great light effects at night. It rises over the ship channel and is high over the Texas State Aquarium and USS Lexington. If your room is on the bridge side you can watch the changing colors from your room. The room was really nice and quiet, with a small balcony accessed by the floor to ceiling sliding glass door. The entire exterior "wall" was floor to ceiling windows....Amazing

    Everything was great, just wish I would have had more time to lay down and relax on their comfortable beds....only problem I experienced was didn't know how to work fitness room machines but I didn't ask for help...shower has soap dispensers that were awesome!!!!

    Love this place. The staff was wonderful. All of them. From front desk night and day clerks to housekeeping. All spoke with a smile over the phone. And in person, they surely did have big smiles on their faces. This is my 2nd year staying here for our annual conference. I plan on staying here next year as well. Wish they'd sell/serve lunch though, or probably dinner would be the most beneficial for the company and guests. Their breakfast was very good, and the breakfast staff were wonderful as usual.

    « Overnight to Corpus Christi »

    We were there for an Elton John concert right down the street from this Best Western. The hotel is in an excellent location for the view and convenience to night life and bay front walks. There are restaurants in walking distance. The staff is great and the hotel is always very clean. There is a wonderful bar on top floor with great views. We definitely will return.

    « Not a bad price for what you get »

    I was here for a conference and stayed the week. Although my room was right by the elevator, while sleeping I was not disturbed by any noise. The breakfast was good and had a lot of choices to include male your own waffles and pancakes. My room had a fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. The property offers free parking. This may not be as fancy as the Omni but the parking and breakfast more than make up for it. Only thing that sticks out in my mind was the shower being a bit quirky to get hot water and the pressure, otherwise everything was fine.

    « Great get away for the price! »

    You could easily spend more for less. After getting settled in we went to the lounge area on the 11th floor where we discovered an amazing view of the water. Drinks were made very well. After enjoying a great meal at Harrison's, we easily fell asleep in our king size bed. The next morning we were going to try a local restaurant for breakfast but decided to give the hotel complimentary breakfast a try. We were very surprised to find a fill breakfast available. They had eggs, beans, and potatoes for breakfast tacos and you could make your own waffles. Of course the usual cereal and coffee. We could not have been happier with our stay.

    « Will be back if I travel here again »

    I was in town because my brother was in the hospital. When I needed to extend my stay by a day, but wanted a 1 bed room instead of a 2 bed room, they held my luggage at the front desk in a locked closet so I wouldn't have to lug it to the hospital while my new room was prepared. The breakfast was very nice every morning.

    « Favorite place to hang out for a weekend »

    I have stayed at this hotel many times. Once again, it was a great experience. The raised pool, and rooftop bar are my favorite places to hang out in Corpus and the views are spectacular. Hotel is walking distance to Water street and all the great restaurants and bars.

    Laid back hotel with great friendly staff. The hotel is downtown next to the oceanfront with a great view and great breakfast. Only negative is the small elevators. To me it is well worth the money and my family loves the hotel.

    « Good location, but so-so value »

    My wife and I spent the weekend in Corpus Christi as a "fun getaway" and selected this location to stay. The stay was OK, but given the prices charged per night, the overall value was diminished. The rooms are advertised to be available by 4 pm. It was close to 6 pm, however, before our room was ready. From direct observation of several other guests, their rooms weren't ready by 4 pm, either. The complimentary breakfast buffet was adequate, but the staff seemed unable to keep it stocked due to demand. The second morning we were there, most of the breakfast items were completely gone half an hour before the buffet closed. We had a balcony room, and would've enjoyed having chairs available to sit outside and actually enjoy using it. Both the delayed room readiness and lack of buffet items detracted from the value of the stay, especially given the rates being charged. There were, though, a few positives about our stay. The view from our room (608) was quite scenic. There are dispensers in the shower for shampoo, conditioner and soap, which was a nice touch. The air conditioning worked perfectly, and kept our room cool. Our bed was comfortable. Overall, we would probably stay here again, if the issues above are properly addressed, or the room rates are lower to make the stay a better value.

    « Marina View »

    Staff was superb, courteous, helpful and gave us recommendations on great places to eat nearby. The pool is nicely situated, you can keep an eye on the kids and yet get to enjoy the view as well. Room was spacious and clean. Close to marina where you can walk and enjoy the sights. Also close to attractions Aquarium, USS Lexington and the beaches.

    There were pros and cons. The FREE breakfast was very good and most of the staff was personable. Internet only worked in my room, not on the outside patio near the pool. Internet was very slow. Rooms were clean but very small.

    « Great stay! »

    This was a last minute booking (I booked as we were on the road) and the website must have changed the dates automatically to show me a cheaper rate but I did not realize it and booked it. I got to the hotel, exhausted and ready to settle in. I was greeted by Kassandra who was very welcoming. She realized that I booked for the wrong day but she took care of us. She was patient, kind, and understanding. We also went to the bar upstairs and it was gorgeous! Again, we were greeted by a welcoming staff. The new bar manager and the employee working that night were so friendly. Great customer service by the entire staff! If I ever go to Corpus again, I will be staying there again because of Kassandra and the bar employees.

    « Spur of the moment getaway »

    Stayed 3 nights, bed was comfy and the room was pretty clean. I am picky and noticed the carpet needed a little vacuuming, but nothing real serious. We stayed on the 9th floor and had a good view of the ocean. Complimentary breakfast was great! The employees were very friendly. The location is very convenient, close to all the places we wanted to see. We found a great restaurant across the street in the marina. The Wifi was a little difficult when I tried to purchase advance tickets online for the TX State Aquarium just down the road and a few other times when looking to see what we wanted to venture out to see the next day. Maybe they could get together with the Chamber of Commerce and offer a little package of things that Corpus Christi has to offer? None the less, we enjoyed our visit and hope to go back soon!

    I had to stay in Corpus one night close to the hospital and got a great price. Loved everything about this hotel. Check in was easy and room very clean, nice and cool. Bed was super comfortable. The breakfast on the 11th floor was the topper!!! What a beautiful view to have with my coffee. And breakfast was great. They have people there making sure everything is replenished and anything you may need. Definitely would stay here again!!

    « Good location! »

    The hotel is easy to locate. They do have a large parking area (there is covered and un-covered parking.) A marina is located across the street; just a few steps from the hotel, you can enjoy a leisurely walk along the marina. I had a room on the 5th floor and it was comfortable and clean. I was a bit disappointed in the view I had. I had a great view of the 2 story Whataburger next door, but not so much of the water and boats. If the view is important to you, make sure you request the best view (which is most likely on the highest floor on the opposite side (from Whataburger!) The breakfast served each morning on the top floor was yummy! My main goal was to visit the Texas State Aquarium while in town. It was in very close proximity to this hotel. Be mindful that the hotel is located in the down town area. It can be busy and noisy on the weekends, and sometimes you will spot questionable people hanging around the marina. I must say that I made this trip alone, and never felt unsafe outside of the hotel. The police department is just behind the hotel also! My biggest complaint was the wifi (it was spotty at best and a little frustrating.)

    Check in was great. View was pretty good. Bar on 11th floor was wonderful. Room, although is was nice, had a small fridge and microwave. Everything was clean except the wall under the ac vent. When we first came in, it was warm. We turned the AC down. Unpacked and left. Didn't return until after 11pm. It was very humid inside the room... not comfortable all night. Very possible it would have been resolved had I called someone but didn't want to bother anyone late at night and knowing I was only there for a night. Offered breakfast, which was ok in the whole grand scheme of things.

    « Great location »

    We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Corpus Christi. The location was great. We were close to the harbor and within walking distance to a number of restaurants. It was a very short drive to the Lexington and aquarium. The beds were comfortable and clean. The breakfast was really good. I would recommend not waiting until close to the end of breakfast service as the tables can really fill up ( we were there on a weekend so it could be different during the week). The staff was friendly. The only oddity for me was that there is only one staircase which is located in the center of the building near the elevators. In an emergency it could be an issue. I would stay again though. The pool looked nice but we were busy doing other things and didn't use it.

    The desk clerk, Mandy, made our check in easy and was very friendly and efficient. The room was large with a balcony and a water view! The room was very clean, and I'm particular!! Couldn't find anything to complain about. The breakfast buffet was very good each morning something different. Scrambled eggs, sausage patties, pancakes and waffles, etc Not the usual menu at such buffets. All tasty and well seasoned. Frank did a good job with the buffet meal and kept everything refilled. I would recommend this hotel to all those picky vacationers who want a clean place with friendly people to help them.

    « Great experience, great value! »

    We booked August 2nd thru August 5th and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We arrived around 1:30 PM and check in was a breeze, Bridgette (unsure if spelled correctly) checked us in. When we got to our room (309) we went to our balcony and noticed we didn't have a view due to a large palm tree blocking the view, I went down to the front desk and spoke with Delma and she immediately accommodated us and put us in room 304, huge difference the view was beautiful! The room was spacious, comfy, cold, and very clean! The entire staff from front of the house to back of the house was very helpful, courteous and friendly. The breakfast was great with plenty of options and a great view! The lounge at night was a beautiful sight! On our 3rd day we left our Yeti Hopper, yes our Yeti, in the front of the hotel entrance, we forgot it while packing up to go to the beach for the day. When we realized and called about an hour and half later the front desk had it. Hotel maintenance had picked it up and turned it in! What great class and character we were so thankful and relieved! We were frequent patrons to the bayfront hotel on water st. and after a last horrible experience 2 months ago we decided to take our money elsewhere. The hotel staff was rude and had no concern for their so few guests, especially because we always stayed at least 3 nights. I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and can't wait to visit again next summer! We will definitely make this our annual hotel destination!

    « Nice Hotel, great location »

    Stayed one night only on July 29, wished we had booked for longer stayed. Really liked the hotel, wonderful location by the Marina area, across the ocean, on Shoreline Drive, the main avenue by the water. Had great marina view from our room balcony. Very nice breakfast included, located on 11th floor, large space, good food variety, another nice ocean view. Very centrally located, couple of blocks to either Joe's Crab Shack or Landry's seafood place. Minutes from the Aquarium (worth a visit) and the USS Lexington. Did not go to the public beach, but drove by it, not far away. Had nice seafood gumbo soup at Oyster Bar place on the street behind the hotel.

    « Great for the family »

    Me and my wife our son and my younger sister stayed here and I have to say what a cool pool! The lights at night made us want to jump right in. It's very clean for the size of the hotel. Breakfast was a cool idea but the food needs a little work, but the fact that it's free helped us save some money which is great. The beds are so comfortable we got a great nights sleep. Only con we encountered was one specific employee who had a huge staring problem, yes we are an alternative family but he really creeped us out. Otherwise the room the extra towels! The soft linens and perfect location nearest our favorite part of the beach was awesome we will definitely be back.

    Located within walking distance of some really good restaurants. We enjoyed the Executive Surf Club and the Texas Surf Museum across the street. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. FREE covered parking! We talked to a very friendly housekeeper on the 6th floor but I didn't get her name. Nice, large breakfast area on the top floor with pretty bay views while you eat. The hotel is a little dated but fine for the price we paid. Our kids enjoyed the pool. There are towels you can use in the pool area so you don't have to use your own. Very comfortable beds and pillows!

    « Excellent location, great room »

    We had asked for a quiet room and we hit the jackpot with the top floor in the corner so perfect for us. Great to have a balcony with (side) views of the marina and bay. This is an older hotel but is quiet and comfortable. It was very busy on the holiday weekend of course and breakfast was a bit of a scrum with items running out quickly but helpful staff. Bar on the top floor has been refurbished and is excellent also as is their staff. Perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Easy walking distance from restaurants and activities.

    « Great location, convenient and pretty views. »

    If you are looking for a mid-priced hotel that is a great location, I recommend this one. The hotel faces the marina and every room has a view. The Texas Aquarium and the USS Lexington are a quick ride over the bridge. The hotel lobby is spacious and the staff is friendly. I will say the hotel looks a bit weathered. We were on the 6th floor and the hallway carpet was stained. Carpets should be replaced. The room, however, was spotless with a new vanity and toilet with plenty of counter space. Comfortable bed, pillows and lots of towels! Breakfast on the 11th floor with all around-views was very generous - no complaints.

    « Pleasantly surprised and I would stay again! »

    I have stayed in Best Western at different locations before but nowhere was like this. For the location, price, & quality, I chose this Best Western Marina Corpus Christi. The hotel was right near the ocean, and the outside building looked very nice & clean. When I checked in, the staff was very courteous and friendly. They honored my request for "ocean view" which was worth priceless. Parking was free, so I didn't have to worry about additional cost. The free continental breakfast with ocean view on the 11th floor was wonderful, much more pleasant experience than what I expected. The kitchen staff, "Sandra", showed pride and ownership inher work. I travel quite often and without hesitation, would recommend to my family and friends to stay here.

    « Comfort and convenience »

    We stayed here for the convenience of being close to the American Bank Center for the A&M graduation. The hotel was clean, parking was sufficient, and service at check-in was on-par. The hotel isn't on the "beach", so there isn't really anywhere to lay out and relax, except for the pool onsite. Although not the fault of the hotel, the city was experiencing a water boil during the weekend we stayed at the hotel. It was not overly inconvenient, as the hotel provided bottled water for drinking. Thankful for the comedic relief of others staying in the hotel not understanding they could not drink the coffee from the machine that was hooked up to a water line. The hotel is located across the street from a restaurant called Dos Comales -- worth the visit! Would stay here again if ever need to attend another graduation, otherwise will stay somewhere else if vacationing due to the price and lack of beach area.

    Can view the Lexington and the boats coming in, with a lot of activities to participant in if you like or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. Several places to eat but are a little pricey. Within minutes of the Lexington and the Aquarium which are great way to spend your time. Minutes from Podre Island which is well worth the visit there.

    Great experience directly on the Harbor. We were there during an extremely busy time (4th of July) and still got into a room ahead of check-in time.

    Pros: The view from the 11th floor is nice. They also offer free breakfast. Cons: The elevators are slow and smelled of urine. The rooms seemed a bit dated and we saw a hole in the roof of the hotel from our window. Despite being a smoke free location, our room smelled of smoke. The balcony attached to our room needed to be cleaned.

    « Average Hotel in Corpus »

    We stayed at this hotel because it was a pet friendly hotel: Upon arrival, there was a line of about 7 guests checking in/out, with only one front desk clerk. After several minutes of waiting, I asked the clerk if she was the only person at the front desk. She responded by saying that the "other clerk had quit and management did not want them to put overtime." A sign that finances are more important than customer service! When checking in to our room (with half of our luggage's on hand), we noticed that the room was still dirty. We got another room with average amenities. The coffee maker did not work, a few hairs in the bathroom, and the loud cars from the traffic at night were just the few negatives about this hotel. As well, when checking out, the sales person was handling the check outs as the FD Mgr had gone to the bank. She asked me, "how was your stay?" After explaining to her about being given a dirty room and having to cart half of our luggage to another room, there was NO apology from her, she simply continued with the checkout process. I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 10 years and look for small little details such as these, so it is apparent that the hotel in general could use a bit more training (customer service & housekeeping related).

    We stayed for just one night but wish we'd planned a longer visit. This hotel is in an excellent location, is clean, has caring, efficient employees and great views! Checking in was easy. Parking was easy. The room was nice, clean and big and had a GREAT view! The needed information for both the hotel and the general area was easily attainable. The full breakfast was very good and again, a GREAT view! We wished we'd spent more time right there at the Best Western and had enjoyed the inviting pool and the top floor lounge. We hope to stay here again.

    Stayed here from the 6/19-6/24 for business. Location was very convenient with terrific views of the marina and bay. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations about the area. Morning breakfast was more than I've ever had at a hotel. So many choices even healthy choices. Rooms were clean and large. Elevators worked well. However the hotel is a very old hotel. Expect heavy metal doors and trim with layers of paint. Some fixtures in the bathroom have been updated but expect a very industrial toilet. There is noise from other toilets and showers but only heard neighbors if they were just outside the door. Also there is a lot of street noise from the large glass windows. However once you close the heavy duty curtains the noise is gone. Be prepared for very weak water pressure from the crazy shower head. There's plenty of pressure from the spout but once you pull the diverter it goes to a trickle. Very difficult to get conditioner out of your hair much less beach sand. I reported it to the front desk and they sent up a maintenance man but it didn't make any difference in the water pressure. Room was always clean but housekeeping was obviously overwhelmed. Hotel was very busy this week. One day room didn't get cleaned until after 3pm after I called and asked twice to have it cleaned. Same thing happened to my friend's room on the 10th floor. Another day the room was cleaned but no fresh towels were left. When I stopped housekeeping in the hallway they gave me fresh towels and a box of kleenex to replace the empty box. They were very friendly. Overall based on price, location, breakfast, friendliness of the staff and cleanliness, I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

    « Ok Hotel, Great Location »

    Staff was friendly, hotel was clean, beds comfortable, but hotel is dated. The location is ideal to the marina and bay. Street traffic is loud at night when trying to sleep. Sounds like cars are street racing. We stayed on the 9th floor and water flowing thru the pipes was very loud in the room. Typical amenities in the room, fridge and microwave included. Had to request wash cloths every night of our stay but these were promptly brought up to us. Breakfast was ok: eggs, sausage, waffles, juice, pastries, etc. Would have liked more fresh fruit as opposed to canned fruit cocktail and sliced watermelon.

    I love the location of this hotel. I walk the beach across the street, then use their very good fitness room. A light breakfast for me in the beautiful setting at the top of the hotel (included in the price of the room) and then a little poolside for some leisurely book reading and swimming in the crystal clear pool. Just some relaxation for me while my husband is in meetings. And the bed at the end of the day? Awesome! Just wish people in their rooms would remember that silence is golden after 11:00. But the staff were quick to respond to subdue the noise.

    « Panic! At This Hotel »

    My husband and I booked this hotel through Priceline for a local concert we were attending. At check in there is clearly a delay, with a line of guests out the door. I realize it's a busy season so I didn't fault them for this. Once we're checked in, at first glance our room is lovely with a gorgeous view of the marina. Towards the later part of the day we noticed a quirk in the plumbing. When the toilet was flushed, water and bits of paper floated up from the bathtub drain. This was pretty gross so we called the front desk and they said they would send someone. After our concert we came to find the tub had collected more than water. Calling the front desk again we were told no one could come until the next morning at 7am. We could not shower nor use the toilet since that was not flushing either. We were denied a different room due to being fully booked and denied a refund. Thanks to the amazing customer service at Priceline we were given our refund. Not looking to book at this hotel again.

    Pros: Great view, good breakfast, comfortable bed, nice staff, covered free parking, great location, lovely top floor view and bar Cons: rooms are tired looking, awkward bathroom setup, noisy street, small elevators, cold rooms where temp cannot be adjusted - only fan speed Try to avoid a room near the elevator because it dings every time it stops on your floor

    « People Extremely Nice, A/C very good, Breakfast has no meat »

    Stayed 3 nights. The people on staff were very nice. The A/C cooled well. Could not tell and difference in the fan speeds. Low, Med, and High all felt and sounded the same. Some criticisms: Two pictures in the room are identical, No towel bar in the bathroom, The toilet makes a loud squealing noise when flushed. The shower head is a low volume, low pressure, rotating type. Always had to put the card in the lock twice to get it to work. There was a spot where the concrete and rebar was visible on the ceiling, about 3" across. The wall under the A/C register was streaked and showed some damage from condensation. We left the card on the pillow requesting new sheets on the bed, but did not get them. Went to the breakfast buffet one morning. No meat. There were eggs, potatoes, tortillas, waffles, and pancakes, but no bacon, no sausage, no ham, not even spam. Food tasted OK except the pancakes. Likely would stay some other place next time.

    « If I were not temporarily Handicapped with a broken foot this would have been a great vacation. »

    The best breakfast I think I have ever had at a Best Western. Having a rooftop floor bar was a pleasant surprise, music was nice, I wished they served snacks. The hotel is directly across from the Marina which allowed for me to scooter around and get out of the hotel. Plenty of things to do with in "rolling distance" The Water Street Restaurants, the Whataburger by the Bay, and Bistro around the corner are all excellent. Free covered parking is provided. The service was excellent. The facilities are nice and clean. My problem was the pool. The hotel teased me with a very nice outdoor pool on the second floor. Problem was it was not accessible by a person with a foot disability. The only way to get to the pool is to go down at least 2 flights of stairs. Extremely dangerous. I was disappointed. I am used to not having a handicapped chair to get into the pool and have built upper body strength to get in and out of the pool. But taking the elevator to the floor the pool is on only to discover i had to crawl up and down stairs on my hands and knees to get to the pool was unacceptable. I will add that the elevators are a tight squeeze with the wheeled equipment that i required for mobility. Also, it rained over my stay and the handicap ramp was slick and tiled near one of the entrances to the lobby. This was problematic for my crutches. If I were a person with normal mobility my review of this hotel would have been far better. Unfortunately, this hotel requires planning ahead for a person with mobility issues. The price value compared to the location and other hotels in the I'm mediate area is excellent.

    We stayed here while in town for baseball and graduation. Booked online and the rates were comparable to all the other area hotels. However, this hotel was not like the others. It is located directly across from the bay and marina. The views are spectacular! Check in was fast and simple. The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable, and everything spotless. The rest of the hotel (lobby, breakfast area, pool area) were all well maintained and clean as well. We were greeted EVERY TIME we entered or exited the lobby (which was often as we were busy) no matter the hour or how busy they were. The breakfast was wonderful with plenty of space and no crowding. Many choices including hot items such as different types of scrambled eggs and biscuits and gravy. Everything was kept spotless and Sandra was smiling and friendly every morning! We could not have had a better hotel in Corpus Christi and will definitely return on our next visit. Highly recommended!!

    While the hotel it's self was wonderful, our over all stay was less than that. We had not a single issue with the hotel or staff. The breakfast was wonderful, the rooms were also, and the bar on the top floor had spectacular views. Our room was on the side where you can see the parking garage we stayed on the tenth floor again great view. But that Friday night we had gone to bed around 11pm we had planned to awaken early and visit the aquarium and the U.S.S. Lexington. But there is an out door club just behind the hotel that was playing music so loud you could understand every word and this continued until 2 am. Our room looked right down onto this club. It disturbed our sleep Friday and Saturday nights of our stay. We will be staying here at least one more time but requesting a room on the opposite side of the building. If we don't hear the music this stay then this will be our go to hotel in Corpus. It's within walking distance of almost everything and the staff and hotel itself were absolutely wonderful.

    When I arrived, I thought that the lobby looked fine and the staff was very friendly. Then I headed to the elevators and there are only two and they move at snail speed. Luckily I was on the second floor and even though I had a broken toe, I took the stairs because by the time it got to the second floor (going down), it was packed. Then I enter the saddest room ever. It was hot and the a.c. didn't operate properly and there was a loud whining noise (I assume machinery) that never stopped the whole time I was there. The bathroom was abysmal. there was NO counterspace. Just a pedestal sink with a little mirror so you had to put all of your cosmetics etc., in the closet behind the door of the bathroom. There was no other mirror in the room so you had to try and do your hair in the bathroom while putting your dryer in the sink. The only positive that I have is that they served a decent breakfast. There was a buffet with eggs, meat, biscuits and one of those make it yourself waffles. Also there was juice and coffee. You have to eat on paper plates, but at least it was hearty. It was clean but just not comfortable.

    We tried to check in early and that was out of the question. Their 4 pm check in seems a bit late to me, but we made use of their bathrooms to change clothes so we could go to the beach while we were waiting. Our room was nice and spacious on the 10th floor with a great view. They have plenty of covered free parking but there's not a great place to walk from the car to the hotel if you are pushing a stroller. They have coffee all day downstairs and we were given coupons for free beers during their top floor bar happy hour which we used for free sodas instead. The breakfast area is also on the top floor and has plenty of space and tables. It was well maintained and had more choices than I normally see. Their Texas shaped waffles were fun and they had a neat automatic pancake machine that unfortunately was having a problem (which was worked out later I noticed) so I didn't get to try them. Plenty of fresh fruit (melons), yogurt, several juices, cereals, breads, and small sized pastry/muffins. The hot items included scrambled eggs, sausage, beans, tortillas, etc... I would have appreciated some apples, oranges, bananas, and hot chocolate, too. We called ahead and were told they don't have baby cribs so we brought our own pack-n-play, but I was happy to see they have highchairs in the breakfast area. They provide shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in dispensers in the shower. I could never get the bathtub drain to close so that I could give the children a bath so I tried to close it with a towel. They need to add some Kleenex to the bathroom area. We had a fridge and microwave which we hardly used, but could be nice if we had stayed longer. The Whataburger right across the parking lot is fun for food since it's 2 story with outdoor seating.

This one had fruit, hot and cold cereal, either bacon or sausage, sausage and gravy, scrambled eggs, yogurt, good coffee, whole wheat/white bread, english muffins, assorted pastry, and a new pancake maker (a bit fickle at times, giving staff a challenge but interesting). What made our stay here was truly the staff from the font desk but especially the two women in the breakfast room, Alisha and Michelle. The free wine or beer in the rooftop bar was an added plus. Nice view from here. We stayed three nights and had no complaints.

    « Not a good choice for a stay on Shoreline Blvd. »

    We were in CC for a conference at the American Bank Convention Center. The official hotels for the conference were the Omni and Holiday Inn, but neither allow pets. Our choice then was the BW, which is listed online as pet friendly -- actually not so much. The BW is 1 mile from the Convention Center, a very nice walk if the weather is likewise. The Omni and HI are a bit closer. We were surcharged $20 per night, which is the most for a pet we've ever paid. We also paid $10 per night more for our room (senior rate) than the conference hotels, both of which are a star or two above the BW. We paid $80 for the pet for our stay, but got nothing for our money. There were no outdoor provisions for pets, e.g., designated pet area, plastic bag dispenser, etc. Furthermore because we had a pet, I was told at check in, we were required to be on 2nd floor,which is just above or adjacent to the mechanical equipment rooms. Also our room was close to an ice machine in the hallway. All that equipment made for a very noisy stay. Otherwise the room was average, neither great nor horrible. The staff at the front desk were cordial. The breakfast room on the 11th floor has a great view, but the food was mediocre. The hotel manager sent me a form letter in response to my satisfaction survey responses.

    Nice place. The staff were very courteous and helpful in everything we asked them about or any request we had. The young lady checking us in was very helpful with us as to how to get to any area we asked and told us not to worry about where our vehicle was parked and that we could move it to the covered area.

    Our time at the Best Western Corpus Christi was enjoyable. We love the beautiful views. We especially liked the view from the lounge. The sun was setting as we watched some sailboats with a cocktail in one hand. It was so relaxing. . We love the real breakfast and once again the view. The only thing missing hashbrowns would be nice. Yes we will be back.

    My wife and I have been to Corpus Christi numerous times in the past and have stayed with friends. We always commented on the Best Western, right on Shoreline Drive and across the street from our favorite restaurant. This trip we decided to stay there and were very pleased. This BW is a very nice hotel under any name and in the top 5 of any BW that we have ever visited. Breakfast was on the top floor with a great view of the bay and above average food. Nothing negative to say.

    The hotel's location is good with amazing ocean views, we loved our balcony room but the hotel is old and needs to be renovated. One side of our bed was completely worn out and lumpy. The top floor breakfast area has great views but don't look closely at the deteriorated paint, carpet, window seals, etc etc And why wasn't there any Orange Juice or Bacon for breakfast?

    Great promo for free drinks up in the lounge on top floor. Wonderful view from balcony. Unfortunately, it was windy and the balcony window rattled and created a draft.

    I stayed at this hotel with my family for vacation around the new year. The location is excellent with views of Corpus Christi Bay, downtown, and the T-Heads nearby. Dining is a short walk or drive away. The hotel is pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and clean. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. We were always greeted when we entered the lobby, and when we called the front desk because of a noise that was disturbing our sleep, we were offered a room on another floor. Overall, our stay was fun and relaxing. I can't say enough about the warm staff.

    I came here after coming off of a bad experience at another hotel in Town. What a relief it was to be here. I called first to see if we could check in early and Bridgette at the front desk was super friendly and said sure, come on over. The rooms were nice and clean and we were given a corner room with a nice view. The bed was comfortable too! breakfast is complimentary and on the top level of the hotel giving you a great view of the marina and the ocean. At night there is also a lounge on the same level. Great location, walking distance to restaurants and bars. The next time I am in town, this will be my first choice of lodging.

    This was our second visit to this hotel, but our first in off-season. We had a free night so since we had a bad experience at another chain, (LaQuinta) we thought we might not get a nice room...wrong! Front room on sixth floor! Check in was quick and easy and the room was perfect. We stayed three days and had no problems. Good breakfast and plenty of free parking. Can't wait for spring so we can return.

    « Great Hotel, location is not bad »

    We stayed here for our summer vacation last summer and although we had a view of Whataburger and there isn't much to do directly in downtown Corpus this was a great spot. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast was good and filling, it was quite close to the baseball stadium, the water park near it, the aquarium, and of course, the Lexington! There is a great little city beach just a couple of blocks down and the price was right because you weren't out on Mustang or Padre Island. Would definitely stay here again!!

    « In the heart of downtown Corpus, a chic Best Western »

    I adored my time this hotel and I can't wait to go back. Last September we stayed at an Inn right on the beach of South Padre Island and this was WAY better, more chic and cleaner! This is an 11 story Best Western, obviously an old property that is very well maintained. The front desk girl even got us rooms on the ninth floor per request and found two required rooms near eachother (right across eachother). The breakfast is clean, very well-presented and I would not recommend going to dine in your sleepwear in this lovely dining room on the eleventh floor overlooking the bay - AWESOME breakfast! My picky eight year old son really got into building his own plate and well because it was so inviting. The view in my opinion is better than the ocean view because you see the bay, the boats, the urban city vibe AND you can walk and explore downtown and the bayfront parks right across the street. I also enjoyed no sand in my room! We really enjoyed that view and wind coming in our balcony. We slept great on what seemed to be a brand new bed and I appriciated the central air rather than the ususal wierd fan unit thing. I was disappointed at one point because at check in, we were given two vouchers for a mixed beverage (at the very mod and cool looking lounge on the 11th floor across from the breakfast area) and a SPEECH about how they expire so we better use them tonight, eeek! So, just as we are exploring that area, a maintinence man appears and posts a note that says lounge closed due to rain. What the #$% does that mean? I don't know about you, but a club soda or caramel vodka sounds great from that gorgeous bay view during the rain...c'mon BW!!So I asked the front desk girls about this and they said "well, that means the employees cant get here in the rain to serve drinks"...she is telling this to me after a three hour drive in the rain from houston. NOT how a traveler wants to be treated....to top in off, the very unexperienced front desk girl does not realize she is also a hostess and did not offer to get us a soda or treat (that are right behind them) in regards to the voucher THEY SCOLDED US TO USE. Really cool Best Western and I will go back, but needs some training in customer service

    « As Always, Great!!! »

    We go to Corpus Christi for vacation usually once a year and really love this hotel! The entire staff is very friendly and on top of their game! Also loved the view from the balcony in our room! The ONLY issue I have is not the fault of the hotel itself. There's often street racing going on at night on Shoreline Drive and that tends to startle us out of a dead sleep. One thing that may help until the CCPD steps up their enforcement effort in that area is for the hotel to offer ear plugs or we could just bring our own.

    « Great Choice for the Money »

    Before booking we read reviews on Trip Advisor. Noticed some complaints about noise but decided to give it a try anyway. We stayed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. There was some noise coming from the street and a late night club but we closed the drapes and slept soundly. The view from the balcony in our room was great, the bed comfortable and the room clean. There is a cocktail lounge upstairs on the top floor that is nicely furnished and has wonderful views. Good place to start the evening. The breakfast was typical but sufficient. This is south-south Texas so some mornings its refried beans and flour tortillas instead of biscuits and gravy. Location close to sights, good restaurants and bars. Miranda at the front desk was absolutely great. Very polite, helpful and friendly. A real pro, I wish I could encounter more folks with her skills. She should train other employees in the Best Western chain in how its done.

    « Once again, great hotel »

    We asked for a room on the east (?) side (even room numbers) & not only did we get the requested side but we were in an end room. Had a great view of the marina(s) & got to watch the Breast Cancer Walk Saturday morning. We were waving at the walkers! The room was great & Laura (room care staff) presented us with a wonderful room each day. Front desk staff was cordial & helpful (as always) & the breakfast was wonderful. The breakfast Room & hotel lounge/bar are located on the 11th floor. During the day, the view is great, but at night, it is breath-taking with the marina lights twinkling-very romantic! I can't tell you how many times we have stayed here but it is the only place we really want to come back to. Don't know the managers name or I would specifically tell him/her by name what a nice place he/she is managing! Thanks again, GW Marina!!

    « Worst experience with Heating/Cooling system »

    When we checked in at the hotel it was kind of freezing at the reception. But it was worse in the room. It was 55 degree F when we entered. We tried to adjust the thermostat which worked on water pressure and it made a pressure releasing sound which was annoying. We called maintenance and they said it is blown up internally and they have fixed it and it will take 20 min to recycle and adjust temperature. It did not work with the temperature but somehow got rid of the pressure sound. We opened the side doors and it was really pleasant weather outside. We spend time in the balcony and kept the door open whole night which increased the temp to 65 F. We had a one year old who was not at all comfortable whole night.

You might get 40-60% deals but try to understand that what you are getting is in fact what these hotels are not able to sell in general market

    The cleanliness was average. The breakfast is below average. The staff is... a little below average. The view and accommodations are good. The location is good.

    « noise level at night intolerable! stay somewhere else »

    I have been staying at this hotel for six years every time I come to Corpus Christi for business and sometimes for pleasure. It was always such a great place. However, I am just finishing my three night stay for business and have been unable to sleep at night due to the very loud music from a nightclub that now operates directly behind the hotel. There was such a loud music all night last night I couldn't sleep at all. I had a very important business meeting today and it was affected by a horrible hotel stay. Tonight the music has already started and the windows are rattling and it is only 7:30 pm. Last night the music lasted till after 2 am. This is the last time I will stay here. I will find another hotel to use when I travel and for business. What a sad thing to ruin a great place but a person cannot travel for business and have screaming music all night. The long relationship is over. I am a diamond elite member with Best Western so this is very difficult. The people at the desk stated there is nothing they can do.
