    « Best Western Stay »

    Again as always I enjoyed my stay at this location. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean, and everything was in working order. The bed was comfortable, and the air conditioning unit worked great. The cable channels were everything I expected, and enjoyed the channels that were available. The breakfast was good, and there were plenty of options to choose from. The checkout went smooth and I truly enjoyed my stay.

    « Substandard for "Plus" hotel »

    The air conditioning was not running in the lobby area which made it very uncomfortable on a South Texas summer day. We had a group with us and wanted to visit, but it was if they discouraging us by keeping the area miserably hot. We were also shocked to find that breakfast closed at 9 am on Sunday. Most hotels have extended breakfast hours on weekends. When I asked, I was told very bluntly that it was 6-9 daily. We were there only one night, but weren't made to feel welcome so it's probably our last night. The rock waterfall shown in their advertising doesn't work either. Everything about this hotel felt as if they were cutting corners at the expense of their customers ? cheap soap/shampoo dispensers, small uncomfortable pillows, hot lobby, poor breakfast.

    « Would be a nice place to open a motel. »

    Great location along Hwy. 77, however almost thirty minutes to check-in with no one else in-line. Desk attendant was totally lost, and was wearing no shoes, just socks. Nice lobby, nice pool area though no recliners at the pool, and pictured fountain was inoperable. In our five-room block the A/C was not functioning properly in four of the rooms, mildew on the bathroom ceilings of three of the rooms, roaches in the bathroom of another, and another clueless individual that was supposedly the maintenance man, but had no solutions to any of the issues. Generic bedding with generic pillows. Until owner/operator or corporate correct the problems I would suggest avoiding this property.

    « Nice Place, great breakfast »

    I use this property when in the area, its clean and quiet. on this occasion I arrived late ,checked in and found that my room di not get the towels changed out. and the hide away bed was rolled out. the front desk staff fixed this for me and I was able 3 to get a great nights rest .

    « Clean, but could use a couple upgrades »

    I liked this hotel just fine. It was clean and comfortable. The AC was great, bed was nice and clean... My problem was that the egg during breakfast gave me a stomach ache. It tasted a big sour! :( Ew. The internet was also VERY SLOW and at times my iPad couldn't even connect. I like to watch movies, which was not going to happen as I could barely even surf Facebook. That's how slow it was!

    « Best Western Review »

    Checked in after 3pm, and room given was not ready. My husband stood in hall with our luggage (on hotel carrier) while I went downstairs to see desk clerk. The man ran back up to 2nd floor with another key to verify if room was ready. Room was clean and looked nice, but the TV remote did not work. Same man went back downstairs for another remote. The room and lobby had a sweet, musty smell too it. I feel the staff should've already checked room out before giving the customer the key. We have stayed in another Best Western "Plus" hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. For what we paid for 1 night here, definitely did not meet our expectations.

    Very Good Hotel. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable room. I enjoyed the amenities that came with the room. The open area had a nice comfortable chair with foot stool that was relaxing after a hard days work. The desk was very nice to work off of sending emails, and finishing up work items.

    « Remove the Plus »

    Disappointed I went out of my way to find a best western Plus and ended up here the Plus should be removed and it should be called a best western so when loyal best western customers are looking for plus hotels they can find one that is a true plus.

    « Wi-fi Never worked on 2nd floor »

    The staff keep telling me they would call and get it fixed, was told that several time everyday. Staff did not seem to care about it. Could not get any of my Business work done. Breakfast was pre-made taco with eggs and undercooked brown stuff I guess was sausage.

    « Decent hotel but bring your own soap and shampoo »

    This is a pretty small hotel(only 2 floors)but was neatly maintained, so it didn't feel cramped. The pool is small, has no spa/jacuzzi but was still nice. The customer service was superb! I had made an error when booking online and they were happy to accommodate us. I was happy to see a washer and dryer easily available on our floor. The things that I wasn't fond of were: 1)breakfast was mainly pastry based. As a diabetic, having more protein options would have been helpful. 2)our matress felt good to sit on but I couldn't get comfortable sleeping on it. Perhaps it just needs to be flipped. And finally, the thing that drove me ABSOLUTELY NUTS was, no barred soap or shampoos!! While I can appreciate being eco-friendly(or perhaps more cost efficient), it was a PAIN IN THE BUTT. My soap dispenser by the sink was not working well despite being fully stocked and it took me 45 minutes to shower and shave with body wash from a dispenser. We ran to the store to buy a bar of soap and the following day, I showered and shaved in 15 minutes. What was provided in the dispensers seemed ok but I wish I would have known prior to booking. May seem like a small issue to some but it was extremely frustrating by the end of our 2 day visit. Sometimes guests travel great distances with limited space. They shouldn't have to worry about finding room to pack shampoo, conditioner, and especially soap.

    « Surprising Nice »

    We stayed in a Suite and it was very nice. The beds were comfortable. We had to switch rooms due to the AC in the first, but the front desk was very nice about it! It was in between the two area we needed to be. It is about 20 mins away from downtown Corpus and 20 mins from Alice, Tx. The suite had a refrigerator, microwave and a 2 burner stove. It was nice. Was very surprised!

    « Avoid the Tropical Best Western »

    Poor service, uncomfortable beds,dirty room, dirty pool, poor breakfast. We will not patronize this establishment again and recommend our friends and business associates avoid this hotel..The staff was moderately cordial, not friendly.The dollar value was far short.

    « Watch out for bed bugs!! »

    So many bad things to say about this place. They don't sanitize the pool. My children complain it smell liked pee. It was very disgusting. There was a miscommunication with room service and I had to complain to the receptionist but she took care of it herself. On my last day I saw a bug on my mattress. I didn't think anything of it but I did kill it. When we return to our house my son complain of his back being itchy. I looked at it and sure enough after doing some reasearch it was a bed bug bite!! The bug I saw on my mattress match the images of how they look! I will never go back again. I did write a review on my bad experience on there website.

    « Poor Service---not a 3 star »

    The bathroom tub liner was so covered in mold it could not be used. Toilet was similar. The actually asked at check in how many adults and kids so they could have the right amount of breakfast. Breakfast was until 9, when I arrived about 8:15 they were out. They made no more. I asked for a glass of water and they told me there was a water fountain by the rest room. It is advertised as a 3.5 star. Soap dispensers in shower... Very Low budget, nowhere near 3.5 stars advertised. I feel I deserve compensation for the poor accommodations.

    The room had live and dead cockroaches. Also, an employee named Jogi was using the disabled parking and she was not disabled. The overall service and the hotel was fine.The location is good even though no restaurants, shopping mall nearby.

    « DO NOT EVER STAY AT THIS PROPERTY »

    I used Diamond Plus member points for one night's stay at this property. (My Alzheimer's mother and myself) Checked in very late and got room near front desk. Commode was filthy. Noticed there was no hair dryer so went to front desk and had to wait a very long time for someone to return. My mother complained all night long that the bed was not clean. The room was very dark and it appeared OK. The next morning I opened up the blinds and found black makeup under the pillows; a very gritty film over the top sheet; hair and obvious stains on the top sheet (this room had been used for sex). I was beyond furious and disgusted. The front desk advised they would talk to the Manager and he very graciously decided our inconvenience was worth 1000 pts. back to the account. His attitude speaks volumes!!!

    « Good, Not Great »

    The overall stay was Ok. Not Great. The staff was friendly and helpful. They made a mistake and overcharged me, but quickly saw this mistake and worked to fix the problem. The room was descent, It looked as if it had been cleaned but only superficially. They made the bed and placed new towels. That's about it. The toilet paper roll was nearly out and the toilet itself was VERY DIRTY. It looked as if someone had just finished using it. That is not what you want to see as soon as you check in. Other than that it is a decent hotel.

    « Just for overnight »

    The lobby is very nice and impressive. The room we were in could use some updating. But the bed was good and the rest was good. Breakfast was a little weak. The hot food was not. Waffle machine worked though. OK for just an overnight. Be aware this area does not have much to offer for dining. We ate at Subway at the gas station.

    « Great Room and Good Service »

    Booked the King Suite for the night. Excellent layout, furnishings, and terrific bed! Kitchenette was well laid out. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Pool was very inviting, but we visited in January! Decor was upscale throughout. Did not use the fitness room this time, but it is very nice. Will definitely return again.

    « great value/great stay »

    this motel was very clean and priced reasonably, especially since the oil boom has slowed down, the desk clerks both at check in and check out were clean, attractive and well dressed, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, I make every effort to get "out the door" for under $100, with this motel I had $10 to spare

    « Good Rates »

    Overall, the rooms were excellent. The mix up was in the types of rooms. The breakfast tacos were below standard; tortilla was raw. Have stayed in the Eagle Pass Best Western that excellent tacos. Hotel is a bit close to expressway traffic and noise. It is well lighted and enough parking.

    « Robstown TX »

    The smoke detector started beeping in the first night of my stay. I reported it to the front desk staff when I left for the day, and when I came back, the battery had been replaced and no more beeping.I was disappointed with the 'hot' breakfast, which consisted of breakfast burritos and belgian waffles. The breakfast burritos were good, but on two mornings there were none in the warming container.

    « Rate Bate & Switch Crooks/Theives »

    Watch for the rate bate & switch, these crooks broke my budget and cost me my job when I lodged several construction crews for several weeks. They offered a weekly rate that was a good deal and when they billed me it was double the negotiated rate. Crooks And theives who cost me a job.

    « Fabulous upscale in a small town »

    We loved everything about this hotel, we got a suite which came with extra sleeper sofa and 2 rooms, we will be back! The breakfast was surprisingly good, and we didn't realize we would enjoy, but it adds value to the stay for sure!

    « Nice oasis »

    Hotel was clean and modern. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The pool area was very nice with the "waterfall" Hotel was quiet, allowing for a great nights rest. There isn't much around the hotel itself, so beware if needing to eat. You may want to do so prior to arriving .

    « Beware Bait & Switch Rates »

    We came into to town to build cell towers. Hotel seemed great, as they offered us a really good deal on a weekly rate, we ended up extending our stay beyond the week and the rate more than doubled. I've been trying to contact the management to discuss and thus far they've ducked my calls. I had to take it up with the credit card company and dispute the charge.

    « Very welcomed! »

    The staff at this hotel made our group feel very welcomed. We are with a traveling baseball team, so it's not a very quiet group, but the staff here made us feel at home! We will definitely stay here again.

    « Lovely »

    It was a great hotel. Nice comfortable beds. The only downside (which was no fault of their own) was that the outdoor pool (which incidentally is quite nice) didn't have any lights on because of an earlier power outage. It would have been nice for our children to swim but didn't have the opportunity to do so. All in all if you're in the Corpus Christie area this served its purpose well. We used this as a check stop on our way down to South Padre Island. Would definitely stay again and hopefully get a chance to use the pool :)

    « Very disappointing »

    Bathroom had dead bugs in it. Had these pump dispensers for shampoo, etc. and they didn't work. Tried to get some shampoo bottles from front desk and rude clerk grudgingly handed one over repeatedly telling me to just push the button on the dispenser. DUH. Free wifi didn't work. Free breakfast had very low selection and when I asked the clerk about restocking the coffee, etc. she seemed frustrated that I was interrupting her from her cellphone. Fish tank was very nice but not a reason to come back. Days Inn was nicer across the hwy.

    « Excellent standard of BW hotel »

    We have travelled down from Memphis and stayed here on our way to South Padre Island. Lovely hotel, great pool and nice room. Breakfast was ok, staff helpful and friendly so on the whole a comfortable stay.

    « Best in Robstown »

    Nice updated hotel in Robstown. Very near the fairgrounds and events. Pleasant staff, nice rooms. Some highway noise. Not near any shopping or restaurants, so bring your own. Very nice lobby and pool. The breakfast needs a better hot item than taquitos, like some scrambled eggs or bacon.
