    « Won't stay again.. »

    The room was nice. Only thing is we took the blanket off we saw blood stains on the bed took the sheet off. And woke up more little blood stains. Was grossed out also told the lady when I checked out didn't seem to care much..

    « Overall Good - but no late check out »

    For the most part this was a good stay. The hotel itself is fine. The room was clean, and looked fairly new. The price is right and the location is excellent for getting to anywhere on the southside or the Island easily. My only issue was the lack of willingness to accommodate guests with late check out requests. Especially when the hotel isn't even close to being completely booked. We were in town for a 5K on the island. Check out was 11am. By the time our race ended and we got back to the hotel it was already 10:30 am. When we checked in the night before, we asked if we could get a late check out - at noon...only an hour late. We wanted to be able to come back, take a shower after the race, and then check out. The guy at the front desk was adamant that they never allow late check outs and would make no exceptions. I rarely need a late checkout, but the few times I have asked other hotels for one, they have always been more than willing to give me an extra hour. So that was frustrating and didn't really make us happy. We ended up not having time to take a shower post race, which was pretty annoying. Not the end of the world by any means, but it was enough to give me a slightly negative view of this hotel. So if you are not going to be running an early morning 5K and have no reason to ask for a late checkout, then this hotel is perfect. But plan accordingly. If you have any reason to believe that you might need a late checkout then another hotel that is a bit more accommodating is probably a better choice for you. The 5K that we ran is one that I have run for 3 straight years. The first two years I lived in Corpus, so I had no need for a hotel. When we come back to run it for a 4th year, we will choose another hotel to stay in this time.

    « STAY AWAY! »

    I wouldn't stay here again even if you paid me and here is why: ? The room reeked of mildew. ? The shower drain is clogged, I was standing in 4 inches of water in no time... ? The AC made an annoying loud inconsistent sound which kept me up. ? The towels in my room were dirty. ? The cleaning lady banged on my door uncontrollably before 10 on a Saturday and woke me up as if there was an emergency. I asked her to come back and she never did. ? Breakfast on the weekend had practically nothing left by 9am and it's supposed to be until only 9:30am. I feel cheated for staying here, I don't understand why this place has decent review.

    « Clean and simple »

    Less than $100 room, close to everything we want. Clean, simple, nothing more needed. They do offer simple breakfast from 6-930. But I'd recommend exploring the to local breakfast spots. La palmera mall is right across the freeway, and HEB is only 10 mins away.

    « Great hotel »

    « My Review »

    I like the hotel, it is in a good location the only think I would say is they need to work on the breakfast and get a better variety of food. The pool is nice and the front desk staff is very helpful. Oh yes the bed is very comfortable.

    « Receptionist AWESOME (night shift 23rd of July) »

    Lovely staff especially the receptionist we had at check in (greetings from Jamaica). Breakfast was good. No wait for table though the hotel was fully booked. The only con was the fact that there was an opened can of Dr. Pepper behind the sofa. Having worked in hospitality managing my department for 4 years (across various hotels in 3 popular chains) I'd defiantly recommend Best Western.

    « Great weekend trip »

    We visited the property 3 years ago and enjoyed our stay. My little one wanted to visit Corpus for her fourth birthday so we decided to use Paradise Inn. We had a great stay the room was clean and the beds were comfy. The hotel is near the beach and pier. The free breakfast was good. They have a machine where you can make your own waffles, cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, juice, sausage,eggs, toast and bagels. My kids loved swimming in the pool. The only down side is there is no elevator. So if you have a lot of things to carry it can get tough taking it all up the stairs. We had a second room floor, we loaded up our bags in the beach wagon thinking we would take it up the elevator and when we couldn't find it my husband asked and then found out they don't have one.

    The rooms were nice. The hotel was clean and the staff was great. The location was close to where my business was being conducted. Breakfast was a joke. The only hot items were eggs and gravy, no meat items. I was going to eat bisquets and gravy, but when I went to get the bisquet, it had mold on it. I ended up eating breakfast at Denny's.

    « weekend rate to high »

    week and weekend rates should be the same. This is a really nice place to stay its just to expensive on the weekends, Close to SPID and food places, I will stay here again but only on weekdays. I always thought Friday was a weekday but I guess I am wrong

    « One night stop »

    WE STAYED HERE ONE NIGHT while on our way to N. Padre Island. IT was clean &just an average place. Can't complain---breakfast was mediocre, nothing special.Think for the price it was OK.Being basic--Id say it was clean & a one night stop

    « Good Hotel »

    The hotel was good. It does a hot breakfast which was good. It also has a pool. The only problem I can see it that it is not close to the beaches, but it is not a bad drive to the beaches on Padre. Depending where you want to go on Padre we drove it in 20 minutes. There plenty of restaurants around. They also have a washer and dryer you can use for free.

    « Beautiful on the inside and outside »

    Hotel breakfast had hot free breakfast. Sausage, eggs, biscuits and waffles. The suite was roomy, updated and comfortable. The hotel is on a very busy and noisy road but we could not hear that on the inside of the room. Office staff were very kind, and accommodating.

    « Good value »

    This hotel was clean and close to shopping and water. My stay was very good. The beach was a 5 minute drive. There was shopping and many restaurants nearby. I was on 5 minutes from my conference and really didn't need to use my gps. Everything is located nearby and the pace was very laid back. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.

    « Rooms not maintained »

    Outside appearance of hotel looks good, but I rented two rooms full of problems. In one room the tub would not drain, lights were MUCH dimmer that neighboring room, A/C was struggling and phone was inoperable. The other room's door did not lock.

    « Awesome as always »

    Shelly was so cheerful when I checked in. She was always smiling, cheerful and was very helpful to me. The Paradise Inn has always been extremely clean and the staff very accommodating. It's been that way every time I've stayed there.

    « Power and A/C Failure »

    Booked a room at the hotel in preparation for attendance at a funeral the following day. At approximately 1030 PM, the power in the area went out. It was restored about an hour later. At approximately 1230 AM, the AC unit in the room failed. Due to the late hour; the fact that we had unloaded the car; and planned an early departure; we stayed in the room. During the funeral, got a call/voicemail from hotel staff. Returned the call later that afternoon and was told that someone would return my call. This did not happen. Was told by relatives who live in Corpus Christi that the area in which the hotel is located frequently experiences power outages. Will not stay at this hotel or in the general area again during our frequent trips to Corpus Christi.

    « Nice Clean Bright Room »

    Our room was clean. Loved the tile floor so much better than carpet, new flat screen TV. Breakfast too elementary for us, but the basics are there. Bad coffee, that instant kind but we bring our own pot. Stuff was very friendly. Parking lot very well lit.

    « Great Location but bad room smell and dirty shower. »

    Hotel is in a great location by the mall. Was late getting into the room and upon entering the room had an awful mildew/moldy smell. The smell was more than likely coming from the mold or mildew that was pouring out from behind the shower panel when I tried to take a shower. Bed was uncomfortable as well. Did not complain due to being exhausted and the hotel being sold out so no room swap would be possible. Thought about changing hotels but most other hotels were sold out as well.

    « Noisy, very noisy »

    The only thing nosier than the traffic on the highway was the fan in the bathroom. Thin walls allow you to hear everything going on in the adjacent rooms. Seems to be popular with traveling work contractors. Lots of trucks in the parking lot. At one point I believe I was approached by a prostitute, Wow!

    « Wonderful Staff »

    The Staff at this location was extremely helpful. I enjoy staying at Best Westerns the prices are always good and the staffing always goes above and beyond. This location is not far from the beach and Port Aransas is a short drive. This is an excellent hotel. We will definitely be coming back.

    « Noisy »

    Upstairs room had a loud party until 4am. Did not get sleep, phone did not work, so I could not call front desk in the middle of the night. Very noisy freeway because hotel is just off the main freeway.

    « Nice location, clean rooms »

    We stopped in because we liked the location. Fast Check in. AARP discount. Room was clean and bedding nice. Nice breakfast in the morning. It wasn't their fault we had noisy neighbors slamming doors. It was just a nice place to stay for a night.

    « Nice stay for a quick overnight trip »

    Attend a birthday party over the weekend. Hotel close to venue. Easy to get in and out of. Did notice some traffic during the night. Hotel lobby clean could use update. Rooms clean.....beds not so comfortable. Overall stay was good for the price.

    « The absolute worst customer service ever!!!! »

    We live in Mexico and, about once a year, we travel to the States to do some shopping and hang out. We called the hotel to see if it was ok to have a few items from Amazon shipped to the hotel. They assured me it was. Upon arrival, we were told there were no packages. A few minutes after we got to our room the phone rang and we were told there were 2 packages at the desk. The packages were open and we were told the other had ?? been shipped back. We left on Monday and contacted Amazon...they said the package was not recieved by them. Now we find out that the package was there and nobody bothered to look for it. Management never talked to us about the problem. I contacted their Corporate office in Phoenix and they don't seem to care either! I just bought another water conditioner and no move Best Western.

    « Must, Ants, Mildew »

    We had a total of 2 rooms for 4 people. Both smelled very musty. The chest of drawers in our room smelled sour. I wouldn't even put our clothes in it. We had ants in the bathroom and on the sink. They got into our toothbrushes and other items (they cleaned the sink and provided bug spray). The lamp shade between the beds had mildew (they did replace it upon request). We stayed in our room until 11 am and housekeeping was still cleaning rooms, but they never came back. We had to go to the front desk to get towels, and they said housekeeping was onsite until 2. No explanation as to why they didn't service our room. I chose this hotel because of the good reviews but now I have to wonder if they were actual customers or just employees who wrote false reviews. Don't stay here. It's awful.

    « decent »

    Decent stay. Rooms clean. Breakfast was decent. The rooms were noisy. You could hear every noise from outside and anyone staying above you. The AC unit did not have a " fan" option to leave on, so we could drown out the noise. The location was good. But I asked the woman at the front desk where a close beach was, and she said she just moved there, and didn't know. She didn't ask anyone or try to find the info for us.

    « Minor issues »

    Overall the bed was comfortable, room was clean, ac worked great. Didn't eat the breakfast because we meet up with family that lived there in town. But parking lot spaces were full due to trucks hauling boats and trailers and the staff didn't contact them to be moved like promised. Sugar ants were found near the shower at night but were gone by morning. Told the front desk clerk and she stated that is a minor problem and pest control has came out to spray but that since it's normal because of the hotel location. Never heard that before. But overall room was nice.

    « Decent Mid range Hotel »

    Spent 3 nights here starting 09/19/15. The first day, room service somehow missed our room. The night manager provided us with coffee, fresh towels soap and shampoo. The breakfast is decent and consists of hot scrambled eggs, sausage and biscuits. There is also a waffle maker and the usual cold cereal, muffins, juice etc. The bed was very comfortable (we always bring our own pillows). We saw a couple of small beetles in the room. The room was not carpeted. There is free wifi, microwave and refrigerator. The location is decent with a relatively short drive to area attractions and beaches. We would probably stay here again.

    « Great place »

    Great place to stay and clean large room. Friendly staff. I was here for the conquer the coast bike ride. The breakfast was good and it was great that it started at 6am. TV in the dining room was a little loud. I did not use the pool but it looked well maintained. Brightly lit parking lot and building. I would stay here again.

    « Very good stay »

    If you playing a short stay or even a long stay I highly recommend coming. Staff was very friendly and the room was a decent price of staying and had everything we need for our stay will come back again

    « Great Hotel! »

    I spent a couple nights in Corpus Christi and I picked this place based on past TripAdvisor reviews and photos. It turned out to be a great choice! The room was clean and maintained nicely, there were no stains or worn down furniture. The bed was comfortable, I brought my own pillow but I used 2 of theirs to prop up while watching TV and they were comfortable as well, and there was no issue with getting hot water for showers. The check in process was easy and fast, and it was the same at check out. My room key seemed to have deactivated at some point during day 2 as neither of the 2 keys they give you worked, but I just went to the front desk and they were happy to give me new room keys. Their lobby area is very clean and looks new, their breakfast offers normal breakfast foods, but it was really good. They were in the middle of repainting the building, but the workers weren't disruptive at all and I never smelled paint in my room. The place is also very well lit at night. I traveled solo for this trip and felt safe during my entire stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Corpus Christi or Port Aransas!

    I have enjoyed this Best Western, every time that we have stayed here. This is one of the few hotels that we will stay in, when coming to Corpus Christi! I highly recommend trying it out! The rooms are always clean, the staff has always been friendly and the prices aren't so bad!
