"Elevators need to be replaced"

1
markstack, Denton, Texas 02/05/2022

One of the 2 guest elevators was completely out of service the entire stay. We were allowed to use the freight elevator which was out of service 75% of the stay. Our room was on the 9th floor. It was quicker to take the stairs up to the room rather than wait for the one working elevator that was crowded with guests and luggage. We also had 3 occasions where our room key failed to function. On one occasion it was after I hiked up the stairs, and then had to come back down to get a new key and then had to hike back up while my wife sat in the lobby waiting for me. I am 64 years old. I was wondering how long it would take the paramedics to find me in the stair well if I collapsed. This hotel should be shut down for unsafe conditions until the elevators are replaced.

"Great Place to Stay"

TripReviewsElizabeth, Littleton, Colorado 24/04/2022

The room was nice, a little newer and with a normal Best Western setup except there was a shower and no tub, which I liked. Very clean and very comfortable bed. Good swimming pool area with shade and a breeze on upper deck. Appreciated the nice laundry facilities, sundry shop, and business center. Sub sandwich shop was okay in a pinch but a noodle bowl or rice bowl or modern pizza might do better here. Loved the free covered parking. Lounge on 11th floor is a gem. Low-key loungy cocktail vibe and incredible view! Friendly staff across property are genuinely interested in assisting guests. Pleasantly responded to all requests, including two stay extensions. So nice not to hear a single complaint by any of the staff anywhere on the property during my entire 2-week stay. Across street from piers and shoreline promenade. Walked to office, restaurants and museums. The area was busy over Easter weekend but otherwise pretty uncrowded for a downtown location on Corpus Christi Bay. Is along a quieter part of bay but there is one motorcycle deadbeat without a muffler who races along Shoreline late each night. Can't be helped by the Best Western but thought I better mention it because anyone staying here will definitely hear it. The full breakfast served by the amazing team on the 11th floor each morning tops this great place to stay off. Immaculate, delicious, wide choice of selections, and again, that view! 5 stars.

Gabe Pena, General Manager at Best Western Corpus Christi, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your five-star experience. I am thrilled that you had such an exceptional stay and found the views to be amazing.

The hotel is always very clean. The staff is very nice. Ali in the 11th floor bar is the best bartender anywhere!!!! The free breakfast Buffett is better than any hotel I have ever stayed at and the staff that cooks breakfast takes pride in their jobs!!!

"Best Breakfast in Town"

Bayou-Babies, Rockport, Texas 19/04/2022

We had a nice stay once we we moved to a room that had hot water. Staff was helpful, room was comfortable and the bathroom nice but could us a coat of paint. The views were wonderful and the full breakfast buffet was outstanding. Anything and everything you could want...made fresh. The ladies serving breakfast was so nice. Easy free parking. Close to several nice restaurants.

"Room door didn't lock, pool closed"

1
Cheri O, Rochester, Minnesota 12/04/2022

Upon arrival at the hotel we were informed the pool was closed, which is one of the reasons we booked here. N0 warning on website of pool unavailable. We decided to stay anyway and make the best of it. Luckily we were on a lower floor because of the issues with the elevators. We then figured out that our room does not lock, no key needed just walk right in. When informing the front desk the personal were not friendly and rude, I actually told her it seemed like she had an attitude and would never normally do that. Juan the maintenance man was very pleasant to work with and I give him credit. Now it is 82 and sunny and we sit in our room awaiting the door repairs. Not once was it offered to move us while this was done. At the end of the day I would not stay here again, Having front desk staff that are nice and helpful goes a long way.

"Always a GREAT experience & service"

BHugs92, Schertz, Texas 12/04/2022

The location is so convenient for my work & it's close to local experiences too (Selena statue is one)! As a gal traveling alone I really like the top floor bar as to not have to depart the premises to enjoy a late night cocktail or glass of wine. Plus Melissa provides outstanding service at the roof top bar.

"Needs updating"

3
User 10/04/2022

Points given for friendly staff, nice location and good breakfast. The room left a lot to be desired. The website boasts the rooms have balconies. Although technically this is true, the doors are sealed so you can't be out on the balcony. Everything was worn and in need of an update. Stains on walls, grout falling apart, carpet was worn and grungy. Bathroom had a shower and toilet - no sink. The sink was in the the room so if you used the bathroom during the night, you had to turn on a light in the room to wash your hands, etc. Will spend my money elsewhere when returning to the area.

"Horrible gross dump, green mold on glued shut sliding glass doors"

1
User 08/04/2022

THE POSITIVE REVIEWS HERE ARE FAKE!!! This place is absolutely horrible, and horribly overpriced, We checked in on points, the room was $200 so I thought it must be good, after all the OMNI is a block away for $239. This place was so bad that we left a little after we got there. We complained to Best Western and the front desk and they refused to give us our money back. I used a bunch of points to stay at this dump and they wouldnt give them back. The sliders were literally glued shut, there was green mold literally four feet high on the sliders. the view was great, if we could ignore looking through green mold. The management said "Well the mold is on the outside, not the inside, so the room is clean!" If that seems logical to you, then you probably deserve to stay in this hole. Spend the extra $40 and go to the Omni or Spend $130 and stay at a Fairfield by Marriot like I had to do, it felt like a clean mansion compared to this gross old dump. The place literally needs to be leveled. The manager Bridget Moeller needs to be fired, she literally laughed at us yelling through the phone at Summer saying there was no way they were going to refund the room because we had "put our bags in the room already" (know your worth Summer work someplace that treats you right). Only one elevator works of course. GOODBYE BEST WESTERN!! Last time I ever book a BW property. They are allowing too many gross dumps. This property needs to be leveled and replaced with a nice hotel.

Room was clean and orderly and staff was helpful and friendly. AC could've blown colder but it was alright. Wifi was good for my fire stick. Breakfast was great with plenty of whatever you could want.

"Great Customer Service!"

cnberain, San Antonio, Texas 21/03/2022

Customer service was great!!! Breakfast view was great because it was in the 11th floor. The hotel was a bit dirty but other than that everything was great! Great hot breakfast! We loved that it was so close to the bay and Selena Memorial and Whataburger!

"A reasonable gem!"

5
rsmiththezen, Austin, Texas 17/03/2022

Great property in prime location. All the staff were cheerful and helpful. The included breakfast was a bonus and the food service staff attending couldn't have been more helpful! Everybody from the front desk staff to chatting with the maintenance man was a positive experience!

"Don't judge a book by its cover!"

User 06/03/2022

Don't judge a book by its cover. I travel a lot and I must say, when we pulled up to the hotel we were a little skeptical - dead palm trees, a dated blue color, and lobby with outdated furniture. But after that, it was all wonderful!! The staff was friendly, room was clean and well maintained, the free breakfast was wonderful, and the location couldn't be beat. Plus, the 11th floor Grandview Lounge was awesome - a great place to start each evening with drinks that were reasonably priced. We traveled with our two dogs and loved that the property is so pet friendly. We'd come back in a heartbeat - don't be put off by the dated exterior & lobby.

Addirk, Houston, Texas 11/02/2022

We had previously stayed at a nearby “nicer” hotel, but we were not impressed. They charge extra for everything. We decided to try this hotel, and we were VERY pleasantly surprised. Free (very good) breakfast, free wifi, and the room was very clean and comfy. We didn't drink at the 11th floor bar, but it seemed like a cool spot (with a view).

"Disaster. Crappy Stay. Literally!"

cormacc213, Houston, Texas 18/01/2022

I stayed at this hotel from October 17th, 2021 thru October 20th, 2021. On the first morning I noticed a dark stain on the inside wall of my shower. That night I went to the bar located on the floor directly above my room. I noticed a pool of water in the restroom area. I realized the stain on my shower wall was emanating from a leaking toilet. I called maintenance who informed me they would take care of the problem immediately. The stains reappeared the following morning. It was disgusting. I asked for a refund or credit for my stay. The manager explained she could only offer a credit for ONE NIGHT. I NEVER RECEIVED THE CREDIT! IT WAS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE THAT MY STAY WAS NOT FULLY COMPED! STILL WAITING TO HEAR BACK. I have tied several times to upload pictures with no success.

Gabe Pena, General Manager at Best Western Corpus Christi, responded to this review
I would like to sincerely apologize for the issues you encountered during this stay, particularly the toilet issue. I was needless to say, very concerned to read your review. Allow me to assure you that the level of service you described is neither indicative, nor acceptable for our hotel.

"Not memorable"

3
pocahauntis, Pueblo, Colorado 29/12/2021

When someone makes a point of telling you how overly great something is, it usually isn't. This held true when this hotel mentioned that it was well-maintained. I'm not sure what standard they use but the hotel could use some maintenance. A guy called the desk while we were standing there because the air conditioner was not working. The hot water in the shower is lukewarm at best and the cold water is also lukewarm at best. Dirt in crevices and erosion many places. The staff tries hard but it's evident they haven't sunk much money into details. However, the breakfast was REALLY good.

"Attended a wedding"

User 21/12/2021

We arrived early after a long road trip and inquired about checking in early with the front clerk. They were able to accommodate our request. The clerk was very friendly and helpful.. The hotel is centrally located by the water front. Upon entering the room we found it to very clean and updated. The sliding door to the balcony was secure and unable to open but the view was great.

User 06/12/2021

All the staff was really helpful and friendly. Aesthetics were good enough for the price. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Nice amenities especially if there for an extended stay. Only real complaint was only one elevator was working my entire weekend, the others were under repair

"Great Stay"

User 01/12/2021

This hotel is well maintained and the staff was super helpful and prompt. The location was ideal and it was easy to get around town. While there are bigger hotels in Corpus, their size made it seem more inviting. Definitely would stay again.

Troy K, Texarkana, Texas 21/11/2021

Only 1 elevator in a Very Big hotel, I was there a year ago and I think only 1 elevator was available then too, the toilets are very loud when flushing, as noisy as the toilet in high school. I was woken up by the sound 2 night out of 3. The wait time to get in the tiny elevator is extremely long

"It is ok for the price"

GabyLatina, Seattle, Washington 18/11/2021

We enjoyed this place, the location, value for the money and service. Check in and out is super fast, we always found parking, the pet area has poop bags, staff is friendly, rooms are comfortable, they have coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge, tv, a desk to,workmcomfortable and r charge electronics, there is also a safe in the room, along with an iron, ironing board, hair dryer and basic toiletries. One elevator was out of service and the other one way too slow. The first time we stayed, both elevators worked, we got a better room at a higher floor. Second time we stayed, we were told that guests with pets are limited to stay on 3rd floor. Not a deal breaker, we would recommend as the location is very good, you find restaurants right behind the hotel at walking distance. In a nutshell, I recommend it, you will be comfortable and have all you need to enjoy your stay, for business or leisure.

"No Working Elevators!!!"

marrnd6, Houston, Texas 16/11/2021

This property was our "go to" hotel in Corpus Christi until our last visit. When we arrived, all but one elevator was working. There was a constant wait as so many guests were trying to share one elevator. The last day, the last working elevator went out, forcing many guest to walk up many flights of stairs. Some were as high as 11 floors. Some guests were elderly and some with medical conditions. In addition, I was told by the manager that there would be no compensation. Shame On You!!! Not going back!

We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case, we fell short. At the time you were staying with us, we were working on improving our elevators and guest room showers. We unfortunately are also feeling the effects of supply issues and a labor shortage.

"Best location on the water"

Needed a hotel close to the Art Center. This is it. Only one block away. Very clean. Yummy breakfast. Great employees. Close to restaurants. View of the marina from the 8th floor was awesome. Would definitely come back and highly recommended for others.

WickedCakes, Columbus, Ohio 11/11/2021

Very nice location. I really liked the bed, very firm & not too soft. The view from room was great. Shower was also nice. The bad thing was only one of two elevator was working. There was construction going on in the 5th floor, so sometimes waiting for the one elevator took awhile due to workers. Also there are 3 spaces available for unloading & loading but the workers took those spaces, which was a bit inconsiderate to visitors. But the location is the nicest part as well as the location for bar & breakfast (the 11th floor).

"Great location with great views of the marina but..."

User 08/11/2021

We have been staying there several times with no problems but this time (the weekend of Nov. 6th and 7th, 2021) there were some serious issues. One was (and has been) the traffic noise going on late at night it being right on a busy avenue. The noise was so loud it triggered car alarms several times. It sound like drag racing every few minutes late into the night. So don't count on sleeping until very late at night. Second, there is no maid service you request it at the front desk, their failure to let us know. Third, 1/2 of the elevaters was out so everyone including the staff had to use one elevator. Otherwise it was Ok.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that we did not meet your expectations. Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality and service has always been our mission. I apologize that we did not make you aware upon arrival that our maid service request have changed since COVID. Unfortunately we are still dealing with labor shortages and it has become true challenge. The good news and bad news while you were staying with us is that our elevators are completely being updated. This project should be complete at years end and will really help with moving guest through the building much smoother. We sincerely hope you will consider another visit with us in the near future.

We spent a night here to celebrate our anniversary and enjoyed it tremendously. Our room was clean and the hotel was quiet. Beds were comfy and breakfast was good, with more selections of hot food than most places. Checking in and out was easy and the staff were friendly and helpful. The lounge on the 11th floor was a treat after a day on the beach. The location is pretty with so much within walking distance. We plan to go back!

The two front desk ladies were incredible! So friendly and personable. Summer was helpful, courteous and really cares about her job. Delma was also super friendly and helpful!

The location is perfect for walking around the t-heads , having some great seafood and scootering along the sea wall . From the moment we checked in all of the staff was welcoming . The room was clean and the ac was chilly ( which is tough to accomplish in such a humid and warm area ) . Was pleasantly surprised how new and clean the rooms were because this hotel has been there a while . The breakfast is top notch . Everything you would want and more . Josie was keeping the trays full and greeted everyone with a sweet smile . Ceased Herrera was pleasant to everyone and visited table to table with great suggestions about the island . Our son in in school At TAMUCC and this just became our go-to place to stay ! Great job!!

"Terrible Experience, Stains on the Sheets"

1
User 08/10/2021

I rarely have the need to write very negative reviews - mostly because I use the opinions of everyone here to select where I stay. This hotel has pretty good ratings and I felt the need to let others know of my experience so that they can make a better choice when checking these same reviews. After a long day of travel, we were ready for a quick dinner and rest. Arrived around 10:30pm. The person at the desk was very friendly, helpful, and courteous. She told me two of the three elevators were out of service and that there was construction in the building. Got to my room on an upper floor, three of the five lights in the room were inoperable. Not a big deal…however, as we started to get settled in, I pulled down the sheets. Disgusting find: Very obvious BROWN STAINS ON THE SHEETS. Beyond the brown/blood stains, the sheets looked unchanged from the previous occupant. There's no doubt housekeeping would have seen the stains when making up the bed. I took pictures to show the clerk. It certainly didn't give me any confidence in the cleanliness overall. Loaded our stuff up, went back down to the lobby and informed a very apologetic and embarrassed desk clerk. She was, again, very kind and assigned us a different room. Arrived at the other room and the keys didn't work. Again, minor issue and it happens from time to time but now we're in a bad trend here. Okay….lug all of our stuff back to the one operating elevator…and head back down to the lobby. Now the clerk is clearly uncomfortable, apologizes again and rescans key cards. She asked on-call maintenance to come up to make sure we got in the room. When we arrived back at the second room, all our stuff in tow, the keys worked! Entered the room and all of the lights worked! Room feels a little warm so go to set thermostat lower to get the room cooling and…..it's already set at lowest setting. Blowing warm air. At the same time there's a knock at the door and it's maintenance making sure we got in the room. I asked him to come into the room where he confirmed the AC wasn't working. We were then back off to the one operating elevator and the lobby with all our stuff (maintenance came along for the ride) to talk to the desk. Clerk was again apologetic but at this point, how far does that really go? She now tried a third room. Back on the one elevator (which even this late at night was busy enough that it added more time to this entire fiasco) dragging all of our stuff and to the final room where lights worked, ac worked and the sheets seemed clean enough. I stay in all levels and brands of hotels and motels and understand what to expect from a particular level. First and foremost, I ALWAYS expect the hotel and rooms to be clean. Old happens, minimal amenities happen, construction happens, and mistakes happen. But DIRTY/STAINED SHEETS, INOPERABLE AC, AND NUMEROUS BROKEN IN-ROOM ITEMS over three different rooms is unacceptable no matter which property you choose. I would recommend you stay away from this property until there are additional consistently good reviews that it earns the rating it had when I booked. At checkout, I notified the hotel manager (Bridget) what happened the night before. While I was impressed with the night clerk's response to the very bad situation, I was a little disappointed that she had not notified the manager of the mess that happened on her shift. After completing the automated Best Western survey I received a mostly form letter response asking to stay again to see if they can meet my expectations – much like you see on TA in response to negative reviews. I wouldn't roll the dice.

"Good Stay - some hiccups"

yogeshbendre, Bloomington, Illinois 01/10/2021

Stayed on Sep 25 night - location of hotel is very nice and hotel rooms open perpendicular to the shore so you will not get a direct view but you do get a view Our stay was good except they unfortunately had a boiler pipe burst that night with water flowing down from top floor. So after paying 200+ for a night could not access their lounge bar on top floor so missed that experience. Elevators were small and only 1 was working so guests had to use stairs next day. The hot water was out on Sunday so no showers. Breakfast was good variety cakes, bread, waffles and served on top floor with beautiful shoreline view - they could add Yogurt . Overall the location is very nice right across the marina. Will stay again hoping the problems wont recur and I get a better price.

"Breakfast is pretty grand"

785valeries, San Antonio, Texas 29/09/2021

The front desk ladies were super nice and fast for our check in. The 2 of the 3 elevators were out of order. So employees and guests ALL had to share on elevator all weekend. So we had to wait for e elevator for a bit. When we got into our room, it was SUPER cold. Felt like a freezer. Just turned off the AC and that was cold enough. We were next to the elevator so we can hear the beeping of people coming in and out of the elevators but a pro was we could have easy access to the elevator. We were on the 4th floor where we had easy access to the ice machine. The sliding doors are nailed and sealed shut with calking so you can't go out on the patio. Also since it's hot outside and cold inside it creates condensation so the sliding doors had mold and algae and hard water residue stuck on the outside there fore you don't get a clear view to the outside. Kind gross when you try to enjoy the view but you see that :( I liked how they had food and coffee shop onsite. Parking and breakfast is free so you can't beat that. The breakfast is AWESOME. So much variety and the 11th floor is dedicated to just that including the bar lounge which gives you a view of the ocean and beach. I watched the sunrise from the 11th floor before I got a bite to eat. I recommend that. All the rooms face east and west so you don't actually have a full view of the beach. You gave the buildings and get a half view of the beach and boats. Overall we might stay there again. The decor is bland and not inviting but would stay there because of the breakfast.

You cannot beat the view from the breakfast (free) area. !!!Having happy hour on the 11th floor was fun too. The beds were comfortable and didn't seem to be queen sized as advertised….

I had a few issues this stay but overall this is a good hotel. Great view of the bay and boats. Lot of convenient food places. Overall I would stay here again.

This hotel is across the street from the Bay & 4 mins from the beach. My favorite was my morning walks at sunrise to the sound of birds feeding, fishes jumping off the water & anchored boats swaying right to left. Fishing boats passing in the horizon & the big orange sun emerging lazily from the thick gray cloud. It was so beautiful and peaceful.

"Do Not Stay"

robertms295, Houston, Texas 20/08/2021

I called the local number on 07/25/21 to make a reservation. I mentioned that my wife is handicapped and needs a walk in shower. I was asked to call the 800 number, make a reservation, and call back. The reservation was made. I called back to the hotel. I was told that it was for a 2nd floor handicap room but that all rooms on the 7th floor or higher have walk in showers and that we would not need the 2nd floor option because those showers were designed for rolling in wheel chairs. Also we would see more from higher floors and little street noise. I mentioned that their lanais had no furniture but that was OK because my wife uses a chair walker and I have a chair cane so we could still sit on the lanai. The reservationist said nothing. We arrived on 08/16 to our 9th floor room. The phone was dead. My wife could not get off the toilet because it was low, child sized, and there was no support bar. My wife was unable to take a shower due to the lack of a support bar. I went down stairs to advise about the phone and toilet. Maintenance tried to fix the phone but could not do so. He requested a follow up first thing in the morning. He also put a shower bench with handle next to the toilet. We were also shocked to find that all glass doors leading to lanais are sealed closed and no access to lanais. Had I been told about this, we would not have come. The next morning I complained about the toilet, shower, and mentioned the phone (it was mid-morning). The manager re-requested repair service for the phone. She suggested moving to the 2nd floor which we did not want to do. (We had brought body wipes just in case.) I asked for an allowance in the rate due to the poor way I was handled in the reservation process and the other issues. She refused and stated that we could check out. This was like a slap in the face. Also, the phone was not fixed until after 5 PM! I will never stay there again.

Hotel was great! Reasonably priced especially for the area. Font desk was friendly and helpful. Specifically Mandi. The fact that they are pet friendly (for small extra fee) and have specific floors for pet guests made it great. The room was comfy. The bed and pillows were very nice. A/C works like a champ! The breakfast is good. The lounge bar up on the 11th is fantastic. Great place to set and relax in the evenings with an awesome view. Within walking distance of good food and bars. Had a great time here.

Great hotel . It far exceeded my expectations. Rooms were very clean and offered a view of the beach. Breakfast also exceeded my expectations with egg, bacon, sausage, biscuits being offered. The breakfast area was on the top floor which provided a 360 view of the beach. The check in and express check out was the best I've experienced. No waiting on long lines or waiting on paperwork. Staff communicated with me through text daily to ensure that we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

kazz3, MN 25/06/2021

Great location (across the street from the water, walking distance to many restaurants). Great views. Rooms were very nice... clean & comfortable beds! I appreciated the generous free breakfast (eggs, bacon, biscuits, individually wrapped bakery items, fruit and make your own waffles). And especially that it's offered until 10 AM so we could sleep in! Although I didn't use the pool, there is an outside shaded sitting area right above it overlooking the boats in the harbor that I very much enjoyed hanging out at. The staff was SUPER friendly. I loved the option to just text them if I needed anything or had a question. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Best Western Corpus Christi. Location, location, location its just right across the bay. just cross the road and we went for long walks enjoying the fresh breeze blowing across the bay. The one thing that stands out is the staff who go out of the way to make your stay comfortable. The breakfast is something my wife and kids were eagerly waiting every day. The spread is excellent and it is open for almost 4 hours makes it very convenient. The staff manning the breakfast counter should be commended for keeping the food filled even when we had a full hotel.

"No hot water or AC… but at least the view is nice"

talkorpi, New Braunfels, Texas 19/06/2021

We have been staying at this hotel every time we come to Corpus Christi for years now. We haven't been in a while and this was our first time back in a couple years. Unfortunately, this might have been our last stay. To start, it seems that everything in the area was unreasonably expensive. We only stayed for only one night on a Friday in the beginning of June, and it was still nearly $275 including taxes and fees - and this was the cheapest option. I'm not sure if this was just some sort of post-pandemic surge pricing, but this seems extremely overpriced for what you get. The hotel was problematic, as well. Check in was late - the staff was very polite, but we got a text saying our rooms were ready at 2:00 PM only to show up and be told we would have to wait until 5:00. When we did arrive, the entire floor that our room was on smelled like marijuana the whole time… not a pleasant smell. After getting back from a long and hot day around town, we found out that there was NO HOT WATER in the bathroom once we all tried to take showers and clean up. I understand that we take a lot of things for granted in our society, but I don't think it's reasonable to expect hot water in a shower when you're paying close to $300 a night. Additionally, the free internet did not work, out air conditioner was stuck on a very hot temperature, the mattress was hard as a rock, and there are only two tiny elevators for a fully booked, eleven story hotel which made going up and down problematic. Finally, for some reason, the balcony doors are sealed shut and so you can't even go outside to enjoy the beautiful views of the bay and marina. On a positive note, the hotel is in a great location, the staff is friendly, and, while still dated, the rooms were clean. Unfortunately, there were just too many problems to recommend staying here. We likely won't be back. At these prices, you're better off just spending a couple extra bucks for the Omni, or staying at one of the newer chain hotels away from the waterfront.

We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case, we fell short. At the time, you were staying with us, we experienced a boiler tank failure causing the water temperatures not to exceed 110 degrees. Due to shortages in contractors and parts the repairs took a little longer than expected. We will do all we can to ensure this does not happen in the future and hope you will give us another opportunity on your next visit to Corpus Christi. General Manager Gabe Pena

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the best Western for our beach vacation! From the very first day I received text messages from the hotel staff to make sure that everything was to my liking and receive text messages throughout my trip making sure that we were satisfied with everything! I have never had another Hotel do that before so that was incredibly awesome! Everyone was incredibly friendly from the guest services to the food services! When I needed towels they were there immediately! I felt the hotel was clean and well taken care of and everything was easily accessible from the pool to the cafeteria and even the laundry room! I absolutely loved that the breakfast area was on the very top floor so that we could enjoy the incredible view with our breakfast! I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be staying here again when we return for another beach trip!

Was very upset when we arrived and found the balcony door sealed up so we could not go out on the balcony. The entire hotel is this way. I would not have booked this hotel...had I known this Plus the windows were very dirty so you could not even see the great view. . Did not like the pool either...the bottom is very slippery and the old time pool ladders are hard to get out of the pool...there are no steps.

This hotel was perfect, we had no complaints at all. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of hot food for everyone. The beach is just down the street and there is a great oyster bar restaurant within walking distance. Rooms were clean and spacious with a great view. Customer service was great, all employees greeted you with a smile. It was great I could send my husband up to grab some drinks from the lounge while I stayed in the room with the kiddos. The kiddos enjoyed the pool. Highly recommend.

The 2 ladies in the front counter were very professional and outgoing . It makes a big difference to me when i have a good person in the front counter with a smile. Now a days we dont get that much as customers. Makes it more welcoming. The lady's made our stay even better for us. We enjoyed our stay and will be back for another visit soon hopefully. Hotel pool area has great views to enjoy.

The trip started with a text message welcoming us to the hotel. The message let us know our room was ready and we could check in. The first room we were given did not meet our expectation, the front desk staff immediately changed our room. The room was comfortable and quiet with great views of the bay. The hotel has a wonderful breakfast in a large, easy to social distance room on an upper floor. Great views! We will definately be back.

Hotel staff very friendly. Room was clean and in working order. I looked at a lot of different hotel reviews, trying to find a good one for my family as we stayed in the area. This hotel lived-up to the reviews. Sure, I would have liked the sliding balcony doors on our room to not be sealed shut, but other than that, things were pretty good at the hotel. I read some reviews from others who complained about the smallest things. They act like they're paying a $1,000 a night. They're not. They're paying a fair price and receive a good quality (not luxurious), product in return.

After researching and reading reviews of soo many properties especially Beach front front properties which had really bad reviews for the price. I went with a slightly higher price not so beach front but Marina view at Best Western. I booked at 8am Sunday morning. I called and asked if any rooms would be available. Front Desk said unfortunately not they were booked, but I could call back at 12 and see that's usually when everyone checks out. I went by at 12pm instead of calling. I met the very friendly Desk rep I spoke to on the phone. Mandy, remembered me and said " I told you I'd have your room ready" she was so sweet and friendly. Room was king bed on 8th floor very clean and very comfortable bed. I greatly enjoyed my stay

amyntexas, Texas 28/04/2021

We needed one night in Corpus Christie and decided that the downtown Bay Area would be the perfect location. After reading less than positive reviews for other nearby hotels, we decided to give this Best Western with it's string of positive Trip Advisor reviews a try. We were glad we did. We found that this hotel had an exceptionally nice staff. Front desk and breakfast attendants were especially helpful. The location is great with several restaurant options within walking distance and just a short drive from the aquarium and the USS Lexington. There is a bar on the top 11th floor as well as the dining area for the complimentary breakfast buffet. Both offered great views of the bay. The hotel building itself is obviously older but it seemed to be well maintained. Our room was on the 8th floor and we could see the bay from our window. It was clean and had a few updates including a walk in shower. This hotel was nice enough and comfortable for one night and with breakfast and complimentary parking it was a good value too.

We spent one night here and were very pleased. The location is right down town on the bay and is easy to get to. Plenty of parking and the employees were very efficient and professional. Our room was very good and everything was clean and operating properly. We had no problems. The views from all the rooms are fantastic and the complimentary breakfast was very good and the views from the 11th floor location were superb! Could see the whole city. The rates are great and the service is better. Highly recommend this BW. We will be staying here again in the future.

Our family stayed at Best Western for 3nights. Best western exceeded our expectations. The hotel was very clean! The hotel front desk was very knowledgeable about surrounding areas and provided great restaurant recommendations. Our room were very clean and surprisingly had enough towels and pillows for a family of four. We really enjoyed the breakfast because it had a large range of delicious hot foods and quick grab n go options for our light eaters. Throughout our stay the entire hotel staff was pleasant and always offered there support with a smile. I will definitely stay here again.

I was traveling with 2 small dogs for a medical trip. I'm so glad this hotel actually allows pets. It was nice to be able to travel with them for a change. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room itself was clean. I always check to make sure bedding is actually changed, no bugs, etc. Shower was a little dated but beyond that everything was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good too! Thanks again. We'll be back!

All I can say is thank you. Finally a place that hasn't taken the easy way out. We could still use the pool, fitness area and bar/lounge. Breakfast was a full buffet, not a bag breakfast. Covid was still being taken seriously but the property still offered the amenities that most families are looking for. Best Western you are doing it right. Rooms well maintained and cleaned. Service was excellent. A/C worked well.

We stayed at the hotel for 11 days while visiting our son who is serving nearby at the Naval Air Station. Our room was clean and very comfortable with a great ocean view. Due to COVID, we did not have daily housekeeping unless we requested it. However, the housekeeping staff was available to provide what we needed like towels, etc. The staff was outstanding. Always received a friendly hello when entering or departing the hotel. They were very friendly and always attentive to our needs. Cesar, Shelly and the servers did a fantastic job at breakfast too. I have nothing negative to write about this hotel. We enjoyed our stay very much and we will be back! It exceeded our expectations!

Great proximity to everything. We usually stay at best westerns when out of town. This was the first time at this location. The staff was Very friendly. Breakfast was the best we've had at a BW. But get there early as they did run out of a few items. But had plenty to eat. We got there at 9:30. Lu, Rosa and Debby are a true assets to the breakfast staff. They made us feel like family. The bar upstairs was a plus. Ally was a great bartender. Great to have a drink and unwind at the end of the day. Recommend for families. Pool looked clean and as tempting as it looked, it was just too cold for us to try. Will be back!

This is a nice hotel and all the rooms have really great views. It's even dog friendly. Lots of free parking. It's right across the street from a beautiful waterfront park and a quick walk to a dog park. Their staff - every one of them - provides amazing customer service. They serve the best breakfast I've ever had in a hotel, and the breakfast space (and their bar) have huge panoramic views of the bay. We will always stay here now when visiting Corpus Christi.

b0diel, Austin, Texas 08/10/2020

After searching for hotels that would allow larder dogs, I chose this BW. The front desk was spectacular and everything was sparkling clean which made for a very relaxing stay. Great location for leaving the car parked(covered parking)-nice deep pool-a-bit chilly as it is shaded starting early afternoon- had a very comfortable King size bed-my dog didn't want to leave it! Many great restaurants within 2 blocks -do not miss U&I-a-tradition since 1971-had the best ribeye steak that I can remember ! The hotel offers a nice hot breakfast on the 11th floor 6-9am with a great view of the Bay! You are right across the street from many parks and you can walk and sightsee as long as you like! I highly recommend this hotel!

"exceeded expectations"

User 02/10/2020

I dont typically leave reviews, but I try to give credit where credit is due. I had a great stay at this hotel. This was the best best western I have ever stayed in. Everything was clean, everyone was very friendly and professional. Typcally most BWs I stay at give only one coffee bag. My room had 5 or 6. Typically I have to wipe everything down because there is sometimes a greasy film on surfaces like on the remote control. I didn't feel like I had to do that in my room this time. Also the shower head had real flow. Not weak low flow like most. And things actually worked and weren't broken, cracked or neglected. I got the impression that maintenance is actually kept up. I travel regularly for my job and have just gotten used to having low expectations when it comes to the room and dont spend much time in the room. I actually enjoyed being in the room this time, especially with the view. Up until now I have only continued staying at best western because I typically get a room with a good view. This experience actually made me prefer best western. Please let management at this hotel know that I appreciate their efforts and they were not overlooked. I will be back in a couple weeks for work again and look forward to staying in the same hotel (hopefully the same floor with the same view)

srtraveler_11, New Braunfels, Texas 22/09/2020

This is a great hotel with a nice side view of the ocean, and is right on Shoreline Blvd. Pluses are nice floor to ceiling windows. Very comfortable beds & pillows. Nice dresser, desk, and comfortable living room chair. Carpeted floors. Awesome rotating showerhead. Halls pretty quite. Front desk friendly & efficient. Walking distance to The Oyster Bar which has great food and both indoor & outdoor dining. Also for a very nearby awesome restaraunt check out U & I for great food of all types and a extensive menu. In normal pre covid times this hotel offers a very nice buffet breakfast. For our September stay desk staff were wearing mask , but unfortunately it was not enforced for guest in hotel or elavators. This was concerning for us at high risk. The only other negative for us was that on Friday & Saturdays there was constant loud & continuous hot rodding and drag racing from afternoon till wee hours of morning; on Shoreline Blvd which is very annoying if you have good hearing. Could probably be cured with a few installed speed bumps. If you travel with your fur baby you can only stay on 2nd or 3rd floor. We still had a good view from third floor.

This is a very nice and clean facility. 1/2 mile walk to beach and walking distance to several nice restaurants. We had our dog which was nice to have a nice place accommodate our fur baby at only $30 per day. Loved how they communicated with me by text too! We arrived an hour earlier than check in time and I texted to see if we could get in early and the immediately replied rooms were ready! Will go back!

Felt like I was being interrogated by the male receptionist when he was having trouble finding our booking reservations. Nice two females kept jumping in to help him with our reservation but he kept accusing of us booking just before getting there when we had booked it over a month ago. The balcony doors were drilled shut, wish we would of known ahead of time.

"Birthday ruined"

User 01/08/2020

So I booked a room a week in advance for my wife and myself and my daughter with her best friend. This was my wife's birthday get away bc we are both essential workers and have been derailed by this pandemic. We just wanted to get out of the house for one night and enjoy her birthday in a room by the bay and possibly some nice pool time. My daughter and her friend have been looking forward to this bc they too have been cooped up for months. We are both in the medical field so we know all about the precautions needed to protect ourselves and others......so here's where things got very upsetting. I had been calling all day on the day of the check in so I could go a little early and decorate before we all got there.....and too my surprise on my 4th call i was told that they DONT RENT TO LOCALS.... She then asked why I was needing a room if my address was located in corpus. I said it was my wifes birthday and then she said I would have to put a 300 dollar deposit down if I really wanted the room...at first I agreed but my wife was upset about it and we just canceled it all together. This was a horrible experience and I hope this review finds it's way up the chain. I dont find this to be very fair being we just wanted to get out of the house for one night. I can't even be a tourist in my own City. Thanks best western for that stellar service and for ruining my wifes birthday. Sincerely Chris

"Charged extra night / woke up our infant and we checked out"

1
User 06/06/2020

We don't normally leave bad reviews but this unfortunately was calling for one. I reserved a free night + 1 extra night with my wife and 21 month old infant, proceeded to check in and asked for them to cancel the 2nd night reservation at the desk (they said no problem but I did not get a cancellation number). The next morning I called the front desk a couple times to ask for a later check out as baby was sleeping and they said the best they could offer me was 1 (which was fine) we even got a knock on the door from cleaning ladies asking if we were staying with them, I said no. Spoke to front desk several times to confirm 1. The next day (after we drove home in pouring rain) I get billed for the extra night. Confused I called the hotel to reverse the charge (I was happy to prove receipts such as gas on the way home from Austin) but no, without a cancellation number they weren't offering me anything except a future free night on this property. Not even a best western property in general, this specific property. I have never experienced having to dispute a charge at a hotel when I clearly checked out with the front desk when calling in and even had cleaning ladies show up telling me there was another reservation. Almost feels like someone stayed in our room and I got charged for it! This was absurd and I do not know if a COVID policy or if the hotel is hurting financially, but we felt like they just stole our money - not to mention charged $186 which is more than the standard rate for this room when they reopened. Be very careful and cautious with this hotel on discounted stays, as a platinum or diamond member or when you're staying on free nights. The staff is not willing to listen, stubborn and out to rip you off.

mlotto7, Surprise, Arizona 06/06/2020

Rented two rooms for three nights to end our family vacation in Southern Texas. Really glad we picked Best Western. Service was excellent. The breakfast was free and plentiful. Rooms were clean, bedding was very nice, sleep quality was good. Really, no big complaints other than the noise from the street. WIFI was strong. Lots of movie channels. Comfortable rooms that included FRIDGE and MICROWAVE. Easy walk to the marina and short drive to several attractions including Lexington. There is a sandwich and coffee shop in the facility. They also have covered parking. Would return.

The property is located across the street from the marina. We were able to walk to the jet ski rental and the boat tour from the property. We also walked to the nearby beach. It has a good size parking lot and the property is clean. We took advantage of breakfast buffet and workout facility. There were several restaurants within walking distance. We observed the electric scooter rental and bike rentals near the property. There is a pool but we did not use it. The area is good for going for walks, jogging, or walking your dog. When we did drive it did not seem like we had to drive very far to get to other attractions.

We stayed at the BW for three nights during Spring Break. The hotel may look a little dated outside- but the rooms are great. Our room was clean- and had plenty of space. Every member of the staff that we had an encounter with was friendly. The breakfast each morning was enjoyable, with a great view. The food was hot, fresh and tasted great. The dining facility was clean and maintained very well. The hotel is perfectly located for things to do in Corpus.

"Something Smells Weird"

User 12/03/2020

When I stepped off the elevator at the 10th floor, I smelled marijuana. I didn't think too much of it, being as it was Spring Break. However later that night, the smell returned, stronger this time. I notified the front desk and she said the only room they could move me to was on the 5th floor but the maintenance man said he smelled it on that floor also so I had nowhere else to go. Waking up the next morning to the pungent smell was not how I wanted to start my day. After asking the manager for a refund or a free night stay the next morning, she said that wasn't possible and that I could check out if I wanted to. I received no compensation for the night I spent in Jamaica aka Corpus Christi that night.

Best Western on Shoreline Blvd is located in the downtown area and is very close to the bay. I had a room that overlooks the bay. It was clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Best Western has no control over this, but, other than the stock car races, I have never heard so many loud muffler vehicles in one location 24 hours a day.

User 25/02/2020

I am not sure how many reviews I have written about the Best Western Marina Hotel, but in each one I have given the hotel a five-star rating & this won't be different. When my husband & I come down here, we are coming down to unwind &relax. The 1st place we stop is here & we are always greeted by the front desk staff with smiles. Our encounters as we come & go during our stay are friendly & helpful. Our room is always ready for us & we always have a lovely view of the marina & downtown Corpus. This last trip (2 weeks ago), we discovered that the remodeling project was finished. The rooms are very nice. The bathrooms have walk-in showers & the rooms have been redecorated with a more modern, sleeker look. The house staff was, as always, thorough & very nice (a special thanks to Miss Clementina!!!). I do have one concern: for a hotel with more than 150 rooms, there are only 3 disabled parking places. Unless we never leave the room, the chance of parking in 1 is slim to none. I suggest that you take an additional 4 spaces right by the exit ramp & turn them into disabled parking. There would be no stairs to climb & w/ the installation of some handrails, access could be made easier. Just a suggestion. Again thank you for a lovely stay & all thumbs up to remodeling updates. As always your staff is first rate. We'll see you in April! Jan A.

The Hotel was conveniently located to some of the most fun places along Corpus. Walking distance from attractions. The overall hotel experience was great and the staff super friendly. Will definitely come back next chance i get. Beds were soooo comfortable.

"Amazing Views"

HenFamilyFun, Houston, Texas 06/01/2020

During our short stay, we enjoyed an AWESOME sunset and sunrise over the bayfront from our room. This hotel has been around for a long time, and we can remember different chefs at the restaurant on the top floor. We were not able to eat there, but enjoyed our room, and the staff's friendliness. Although a bit dated in places, our room lacked for nothing!!!! The bathroom was wonderfully updated with an awesome showerhead, lighting, and plenty of space. Our bed was very comfortable, but what we loved the most was the pillows. They were the pillows you would have at home, not the cheap ones usually provided at hotels, and there were so many. I take my own pillow with me due to the poor pillows, but this time I could hardly tell the difference between their pillows and my own. Our room was spacious with a refrigerator, and microwave. We would definitely recommend staying here, esp. for the reasonable price too!

Generous hot breakfast. Ample fitness room. Comfortable and clean guest rooms. Friendly hotel staff. Would stay again. We stayed for 2 nights and loved it.

Stayed one night in order to visit the USS Lexington which was close by. Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. In fact the bathroom shower stall looked brand new and was the cleanest hotel shower stall I have ever used. All staff was welcoming and polite especially the awesome breakfast team. Merry Christmas and thanks to everyone at BW who played a part in our very satisfying experience at Best Western Corpus Christi.

sabravesfan, San Antonio, Texas 10/12/2019

Our stay at the Best Western was very relaxing, from check in to check out. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. We happened to go to a concert at the Bank of America Center and it was close enough to walk to the venue. Staying at the shoreline, we love the atmosphere. The Christmas parade was during our stay and also the illuminated boat Christmas parade, all within walking distance. Loved it.

Beautiful City. Loved staying at this B W overlooking the Marina. Excellent Hotel. Very comfortable & clean rooms, bed was perfect for our " old bones." Staff is very friendly and helpful.

catrionag123, Beaumont, Texas 08/12/2019

You can't fault this place for its marina view and it's easy to walk along the sea wall . The lounge on the 11 th floor has amazing views and nice white leather seating . As with all hotels it's residents provide noise as they stomp about and talk loudly also road noise but the AC cancelled most of it out

scottpuma2019, Saint Louis, Missouri 25/11/2019

This place was amazing from the start. It's very clean and nice throughout. It's right by the water and every room in some form can see the Gulf. The breakfast had a good selection and tasted pretty good as well. You can pretty much walk to almost all the things that Corpus Christi has to offer. The great beaches are only a short drive away but you still have access to a beach about a 10 min walk. Don't forget to check out the bar lounge on the 11th floor. Views are amazing! The bartenders are the best and will make your night. If you make it up there please tell Emily that Puma said hello.

Beverly M, San Antonio, Texas 20/11/2019

This is a very well kept hotel.The location is great. You can enjoy beautiful scenery which includes a mariner and bay. The breakfast is the best everything you can imagine is on the menu from sausage, eggs, tacos, waffles with all the fixings, plenty fruit, pastries, different juices and gourmet coffee. Breakfast room has a gourous view. My only complaint is the balcony doors are sealed and I love going out on the balcony so I missed that.

User 05/11/2019

I don't know when this hotel was built but it has to have been a long time ago. They have put some money into it but the layout is very odd. The entry hall into the room has a place to hang clothes, but no door. Then there is the vanity/sink area. Then you arrive at the bathroom with no sink. The bathroom has been remodeled with the barn shower doors with plastic walls. The toilet is from the 70's with the big handle with the big flush. The room itself was also odd with carpet that is also very old. The matress is so old it is broken down. I don't know if all the rooms have the same issue but don't take room 1011. On the positive side the location is great and the breakfast was very good. They are trying hard but still have some capital to invest.

Hotel was right across the street from the marina. Close to lots of restaurants- within walking distance. Lounge was cute and great aesthetic. Breakfast was great -lots of options and the view was fantastic. There's also a restaurant on the ground floor which was very convenient. Room was great and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Recommended places to see as we weren't from the area. Will definitely stay again!

This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. There are 10 floors plus breakfast on the 11th floor. There are many things to do and places to eat nearby, and there are even 3 restaurants in the hotel, a sandwich shop, a smoothie shop and a coffee shop. There is not a private beach but there is one within walking distance. The hotel is also near the original Whataburger. All rooms have a view of the ocean, but the top floors have a better view. Staff were super nice and the rooms were very clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Corpus Christi.

What an amazing hotel. They helped us out with a room issue (our fault, not theirs), room is very comfortable, spacious with a large bathroom. Comes with a refrigerator and microwave as well.

This is a very nice place for business or vacation. It's got a pool, clean room, coffee shop and sandwich (Blimpee) shop. Just needs a place to charge your EV. It's right across from the water so you can't belief the view from 11th floor lounge. I really could relax.

dadisnest, Aberdeen, United Kingdom 02/10/2019

The room had very thin walls so we could hear our neighbours coming and going. There was also a large gap below the door so every noise could be heard in the corridor. This also combined with the fact that the balcony door and windows were sealed shut made us worry about fire risks. Our room was directly below the gym so we were disturbed every morning and night with the dropping of weights and other bangs on the hard floor above. The breakfast food selection was very good, however, the use of single use plastic was dreadful. We ate at nearby Thai Spice because reception told us that if we showed our room key we would get a discount!! This did not happen - we recd no discount for a very expensive meal.

"Heroin Use"

1
User 24/09/2019

In the hotel room that my high school team was staying in, a student found, set on the microwave, a bent and burned spoon and two opened, apparently used hypodermic needles. It looked like someone had been using heroin in the room. I was disgusted that my students were exposed to this. I am upset that the front desk did not apologize, or do anything to attempt to rectify the situation. They told me that perhaps someone had diabetes. 1) That still doesn't excuse needles being left in the room. 2) Nobody cooks insulin in a spoon and injects it. They dismissed me and my complaint. Again, not even an apology. This is the worst Best Western I have ever been to. It changed my view of the brand. I cancelled out future reservations and don't plan on visiting again. I have also informed our school district so that no schools and students will have to go through this nightmare scenario again.

Gabe P, General Manager at Best Western Corpus Christi, responded to this review
We're astonished to read your review about what was found in your room. I will definitely be looking into this situation and will get it rectified immediately.

TexasSAgirl2013, San Antonio, Texas 22/09/2019

I used two free nights from my Best Western Rewards for this stay and within the first five minutes of stepping into the lobby, I knew I chose wisely. The hotel is a little retro on the outside but the area is in the Art Deco District, downtown Corpus Christi, so they kept the ranch style look on the outside. Heaven, the front desk attendant was so helpful with everything and gave my dog a doggie treat with snacks. The staff was so helpful, that's why I extended my stay from one night to two. The breakfast area was awesome! Hands down best view and the food was delicious. The area was kept very clean. The bar opens at 5pm and this was a real treat. I had such a great time, I'm coming back again for a girls weekend. The pool was great. The hotel is so convenient to the bars, the dog park, the seawall and Emerald Beach. Thank you Best Western!

LELockwood, Austin, Texas 03/09/2019

Save your money, book anywhere else. Upon arrival, dirty sheets, dirty bathroom (pubic hairs on floor, mirror smudges), broken fridge, broken shower door (while my sister was inside of it, trapped, maintenance saved her. Reserved upgraded room was not granted, offered to move us, then told us to stay in the gross room, did not have it cleaned either. Terrible customer service from check in to phone wait time, to any questions we asked, management is invisible. Hotel was 'completely booked' only 3 luggage dollies available for entire hotel use. Key cards didn't work every single time we left the room. You're better off camping on the beach. We felt as if we were an inconvenience to the staff. Only saving grace was Ricardo & Jerry, the maintenance repair team who went above and beyond. They should be concierge and teach the rest of the staff what operating in hospitality is about.

This hotel isn't the best curb appeal, but they make up for it inside. The interior has been updated. The views are wonderful (all rooms have view of Gulf). The staff is friendly and very helpful. The free breakfast has real eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes and much more -- you eat on the 11th floor with views of the boat docks. We were able to have our Aussie dog stay with us at this hotel (they even had treats for my dog). The place was very clean. Free internet and a covered, free parking garage. Great location with on the dock eating places within walking distance. A clean wide sand beach is just a few blocks away. We will be staying there again!

After spending all day moving my daughter into her college residence, I return to BW dead tired. I walked in to find an unmade bed at 11:30pm. They left a note stating that they were unable to make my bed as I left personal item on the bed. I left a ZIPPED BACKPACK on the bed, mainly because I was not comfortable leaving it on the floor..

This appears to be an older hotel from the looks of the outside of the hotel, but you wouldn't know it walking in the hotel. Very clean, updated furnishings. Seems all the rooms have views. Front desk staff was amazingly nice, competent and speedy. Rooms were clean. AC worked well. Bathrooms worked well. Pool was great. Best complimentary breakfast we've had at any hotel. The views of the bay from the tables in the breakfast area were amazing. Hotel is so close to the bay - right across the street. Every encounter we had with any member of the staff was so pleasurable. We had such a nice stay!

For my birthday weekend we decided to go out of town and we ended up in Corpus Christi. We had no reservations and knew we enjoyed our last stay at this Best Western. We had 7 people and needed 2 rooms and 1 that was accessible for a wheelchair. They were able to get us rooms right next to each other, they gave us 2 coupons each for the coffee shop and the Blimpies, they gave us suggestions on where to go eat, and the service was great. We went to our rooms, they were clean, cool, and comfortable. I would definitely be going back there soon. Thanks for the service and the great nights sleep!!!

In fact all of the staff made sure we enjoyed our stay, from the people on reception to the bar staff, and a great big thank you to the ladies who take care of the breakfast on the top floor. The range of choice and quality of breakfasts goes well beyond the expected norm, and it was so lovely to engage in conversation with the very happy staff who prepare and take care of the servery. This Best Western has really raised the bar for customer satisfaction, and we leave with happy memories of our stay in Corpus Christi.

"Smashed 8-yr old's hand!"

User 16/08/2019

Room smelled bad, but that's not the worst. The shower door stop was broken, and my son smashed his hand in between the handle and the glass edge (see video and pics). Hotel response was atrocious. They offered to call an ambulance, but I felt like that was overkill, and I told them so. Once I denied the ambulance offer, they were done. Didn't offer to move us, no discount, no apology. I wrote corporate, they were just as bad. I posted their response in the pics. Will never stay at Best Western again.

The hotel is really nice and the staff was great. I've never had a better breakfast selection in all my stays at other hotels. Lots of nearby restaurants and bars within walking distance, and the beach just a few feet away. Going to make it a point of staying here when I'm visiting CC

Link D, Austin, United States 09/08/2019

The front-desk, team leader told me that when I realized that the room wasn't cooling (around 2 am), I should have called the front desk. At 2 am? Really?! She said, too, that they could have changed rooms for me. At 2 am? I've been staying at this location for at least 30 years. No compensation was offered except for extra rewards points. I don't recommend this hotel anymore, Largely because of the front desk, team-leader's attitude.

rscoleman79, Texas Gulf Coast, Texas 30/07/2019

New to south Texas and though older am in a new job, very stressful with little vacation time. We sorely needed a break nearby. We thought of Corpus, drove down before hand, saw the BW, began to compare prices and which were goood hotels. Thank goodness we saw an awesome discount offer on BW and took it. Wow!!! So comfortable in every way. Beautiful lobby, awesome mattress, beautiful views of the bay, super sub and smoothie shop, a breakfast that was over the top, relaxing small pool, nice little gym. Step out the lobby door, cross the street and viola!!! Three piers to walk out on, see the boats, shop, eat seafood, even see the replica of Columbus' ship La Nina. Fantastic and so relaxing. Can't wait to return!

My family stayed here for 4 nights for a softball tournament. The staff was very nice and friendly, loved having the smoothie shop on the 1st floor and the lounge in the top floor. The lounge was nice for us to get away from a long day and just enjoy the view of the harbor. Would definitely stay here again.

User 23/07/2019

I have used this hotel for approximately the past 15 years and have always enjoyed it. NOT, this time. I am disappointed! The patio glass doors are sealed shut. The phone was not connected therefore it did not work. The fitness equipment, treadmill, other electronic items not working. When I reported the problem I was told it would be repaired after I check out. Breakfast was excellent..

Gabe P, General Manager at Best Western Corpus Christi, responded to this review
We apologize that our service did not satisfy your expectations. We set a high standard for ourselves and are truly sorry to hear that you were not happy with your stay.

We have stayed at this hotel many times. It is reasonably priced in comparison to other nicer hotels in this same area of Corpus. Rooms are clean. Having a fridge and microwave in the room is also a plus.No fee for parking is another plus. Continental breakfast consists of a wide variety of foods and fruits, with a good view of the marina and bay. Very minor issues would be slow internet and also the ac was cold, but room felt humid, damp, possibly due to our room being close to an outside door.

Odyssey43932631690, Bessie, Oklahoma 07/07/2019

The hotel was overall pretty good. The breakfast was awesome! The pool was nice. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The room was comfortable. The only downfall was the elevators. They are tiny. They say capacity is 12, but there is no way. It was extremely tight with 6 in it. Bc they are so small, there is a pretty long wait for breakfast or to go anywhere. Breakfast is on the 11th floor so you can take the stairs, but that is pretty far if you are on a lower floor.

The good-Beautiful view from the room! Very nice hot breakfast- eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, yogurt with fruit, and all the extras. Nice location across from the marina. Nice looking bar on the top floor- good place for couples to go. The bad- our room smelled terrible like mold, the carpets were old/dingy, the room felt dirty, the pool was green. I understand that pool filters break, but the staff should be aware that its broke. I wouldn't go back to this hotel, because Most important to me is a clean room.

"Good hotel but disappointing service "

User 25/06/2019

The hotel overlooks the marina good views from the rooms which are a good size the usual chain hotel "complimentary breakfast ". My reason for saying disappointing service is we were there for 3 nights and each night we had an issue: 1st night -The sink leaked all over the floor 2nd night - The toilet blocked 3rd night - One of the sockets sparked and the power went out in half of the room. They said we could change room but this was after 10 at night and we were checking out the next morning so decided it wasn't worth the trouble When I checked out and mentioned that we were on 1st name terms with the maintenance men and asked for some compensation for the amount of problems we had had the receptionist just said I cant do that I'll mention it in my report !! 1 problem ok these things happen but 3 with no recompense is unacceptable. I would like to think that of she had put it in a report then a manager would have contacted me but no such contact has been made so I assume it was just a throw away comment

bryancrawford54, Crewe, United Kingdom 25/06/2019

Check in was easy and the staff very helpful, our room was clean with a view of the seafront. My had gone down to the lobby and on her return said what have you done. Me nothing, the bathroom floor is wet, maintenance arrived and fixed the sink a few hours later while we were out for dinner and on our return the toilet was blocked. Once again maintenance arrived very quickly and unblocked the toilet. The next night the exterior wall had a major electrical short which took out our side of the hotel. They offered us a room change but at 10.30pm we decided to stay in the room, needless to say we were glad to leave and were led to believe we were going to get some sort of recompense but that didn't happen. We cannot recommend this hotel.

"Outstanding views of the bay"

CoastWhisperer, Austin, Texas 14/06/2019

This is a better than average hotel, with beautiful views of the bay which is just across the street, outlined by endless sidewalks, pretty gazebos, and picturesque boats - you can't beat it. We've stayed here a couple of times and each stay has been very satisfying. There are a few things that set this hotel apart from the few other nice hotels downtown: it isn't noisy, the parking is free, the room rates are usually better, and the breakfast buffet is free and surprisingly tasty with a bevy of choices. The eggs are freshly scrambled (not the insta-eggs served at many chains) and truly delicious - I'm not typically impressed with eggs. The bacon is good, the warm cinnamon rolls are savory, and other fresh pastry options are offered. There are multiple fresh fruit choices, a yogurt machine with a variety of add-ons available, waffles, salsa for the eggs, little sausage pastries, gravy, decent hot coffee, juice choices, and all of the standard cereal varieties. Everything is well prepared and presented. The 11th floor breakfast area is more than sufficient in size, with floor to ceiling windows and enormous views of the bay with a peek of the downtown area. Across the hall from the breakfast room is a quaint scenic bar serving drinks in the evening. On the first floor, there is a cafe area with a Blimpie sandwich counter, a coffee shop counter (amazing lattees), and a smoothie counter. There's also a little food pantry near the check-in counter. No room service, but it's not needed since Grub Hub is available for restaurant deliveries. You won't go hungry. The hotel is within walking distance of things to do, like the art museum, several parks, and ez access to several restaurants nearby. Water Street Oyster bar is literally behind the hotel across the street - a must visit eating spot with delicious seafood, a fun decor, and TVs with access to the Houston Astros. The staff at this Best Western is friendly, and the cleaning team is especially nice and helpful. The rooms are comfy and clean, with a pleasant decor that has been updated since some of the Trip Advisor photos were taken. The WiFi works great. The lobby area is spacious with cushy seating, and has an outdoor area with chairs. I've never seen any bugs here, which in South Texas is quite the accomplishment since insects are prevalent in the coastal bend, no matter where you go. The 2nd floor outdoor pool area is split level with a covered table area with bay views. The hotel welcomes dogs, families, and business travelers alike. When they run specials, this hotel is a very good deal and we would definitely stay here again. While it may not be an overtly ritzy place, its no slouch - the accommodations here are nicer than the average clone chain, with plenty of activities available nearby. I highly recommend it.

User 04/06/2019

The staff is great and the rooms are clean. While we were there it seemed the pool was struggling to keep up with the human load but to us it was acceptably clean. And then there was the "all inclusive breakfast"... There is food available from 6am to 10am on the 11th floor. The view of the marina and bay are great. The coffee is hot and there is orange juice. Beyond that I suggest the following: "Buyer be ware". During our 3 mornings it was a mix of traditional American and Mexican morning fare. All were done with complete mediocrity. Location to local eating and fun is super and overall not a bad hotel. Not our favorite Best Western by far, but it was certainly acceptable. The desk staff was very knowledgeable and helpful about local dining and activities.

Breakfast was excellent, full breakfast, lots of choices. Help in the dining area, a person to great us and were there when we needed something. The ladies putting food in place were very kind and helpful too. Very Very enjoyable stay with our 9 year old grandson. Pool was nice, clean, chairs and many towels available with a location for extra towels and soiled towels. We've stayed at other hotels in the area and were very happy to stay here, it was almost $100 less than our first choice but so glad we came here. Great place to be, right across from the water. Nice area to walk and our hotel was right there. Walked down to the boats and restaurants. .

My family an myself were going to visit the Island for some beach time but weren't sure where to stay, our first night, we stayed at the Holiday Inn and it wasn't great. We asked for towels an they were completely out an my mother killed a roach, after the beach the day after, we decided to stay again. This time we checked into Best Western an from the moment we got checked in we realized we should have stayed our whole weekend here! It's awesome, check out time is at 12 instead of 11! Members get an option for points or free gift basket. We also were entered for a 20$ gift card that we will receive at home. My kids loved the view from the room an the room itself was very clean an comfortable. The pool is nice an clean, we washed our clothes! And there are plenty of towels lol. An since checkout is at 12 we were able to make the FREE BREAKFAST in the morning an still have time to hang out like I am doing now! I couldn't have asked for a better stay an this will be the only place I stay from now on, anywhere I go! Delma at the front desk is the sweetest!

Great view of the bay. Hotel was family oriented, good breakfast! Area has some restaurants and a fun bar with a live band. Visited the beach, walking distance to segways tour, you can rent ride on scooters. Everything is pretty close

Awesome stay. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of options. Everything was clean and tidy. Couldn't have been more happier bed was perfect and the room was very cold which I love. Very different actually having a thermostat as opposed to having an ac but since there is a balcony there isn't an AC unit lol. Had no issues with anything the staff were excellent would definitely love to return there again.

This is not a "fancy" hotel. However, it is very clean, in a great location, has everything you need, and the staff goes above and beyond. I stayed there this past week, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The beds were very comfortable, a convenient coffee, sandwich shop on the ground floor, a good breakfast, and a great view of the marina and bay. All of the staff were outstanding, but Mandy especially took good care of us. They really are pet friendly also!

roamer61, New York 04/05/2019

Stayed here for 5 nights as part of a short getaway trip. Hotel is located a short walk of the water and the fishing piers where one finds a number of restaurants. The 11 floor hotel had basic rooms that are average sized and very comfortable. Complimentary breakfast comes included. This includes a whole assortment of choices. Also on the 11th floor is a club overlooking the gulf where one can enjoy drinks. The staff are friendly and courteous and quite helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

"Ugliest incident ever.."

User 28/04/2019

I was ordering food at cafe restaurants from hotel. My 11 yr old son came to help me with food.. shortly later my wife calls me to tell me my son was trap on elevator 2. I was advised not to call 911 that maintenance guys will fixed with in 5mins.. it was so desperate to hear my son cry inside the elevator on a panic attack saying he was loosing air...asking for help.. 22 mins past and elevator took my son to floor 6 n he got out scared and crying and confused.. mins later he was taken to us on floor 3 where my 9 yr old son was crying for his brother.. it was the ugliest moments of my life.. the restaurant guy told me not to worry about paying for the food.. even do we were on shock not thinking about eating anymore... i was told that there was no manager on duty. An incident report was created no one on lobby offer a Discount or anything.. but everything gets better with your kid.. so disappointed.. sad to see many people for higher floors using the stairs to go up and down.

My family and I stayed at the Best Western because we were celebrating our son's birthday who was turning 3. They had fun but the pool however, was cold since it was outside and their was no other pool that they had. But overall we enjoyed the stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Best Western Corpus Christi. Unfortunately we have had a string of cold fronts late in the season that are not helping with the pool water temperatures.

User 13/04/2019

I am a frequent traveler and tend to stay at Hilton and Marriott properties. However, on a recent business trip to CC I stayed at this Best Western location. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious with good views. The rooftop bar was nice with a good selection of drinks and great views, though it was a bit cold in there. The access to the boardwalk/bayfront area was easy and was overall a great place to stay. Not a 5 star hotel, but really great value for the cost.

Edward E, Ramsey, MN 12/04/2019

I stayed at this Best Western on March 30, 2019, specifically Room 309-A. I was traveling with a small dog that was also welcomed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This motel has a great "pet area" that was very clean. The room was very quiet, and clean. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the water pressure in the shower was very poor. I'm not sure if there was a water saver valve or not, but it took me quite a bit longer to get the shower process done because of low water pressure. I will stay at this motel again, given the opportunity.

John A, Marion, Iowa 09/04/2019

My wife & I stayed here 4 nights while vacationing in Corpus Christi. Overall a decent hotel. Desk staff were friendly & helpful. The room seem clean when we checked in. The hotel was full, mostly high school students there for Team USA competition that was in town that weekend, in fact all the hotel were full that weekend because of that. Room was nice, had wanted a lower floor room but didn't get it. My wife liked the bed I thought it was way too firm/hard. Pillows were so so. The shower had one of the rain nozzles heads. Would of been better if there was more water flow/pressure. Being on the 7th floor may be partly the reason.The room had just a shower no tub. The breakfasts were very good! Better than most hotel free breakfasts. Fresh fruit, different pasties, the usual eggs & sausage but also something different each morning hot food wise. Large breakfast area also. It's on the 11th floor and has a nice view of the water & city. There is also a bar on the 11th floor open in the evenings except on Sunday. Same great view. Roof top pool & deck on the second floor. Our only issue was with housekeeping. We left one morning at 9:30 and came back from being on thr water all day at 4 PM and our room hadn't been cleaned yet. We were very unhappy to say the least.I found a maid on our floor cleaning another room and asked her to clean our room right away. I went down to the front desk and informed them how unhappy we were that our room hadn't been cleaned yet. She got on the phone to the housekeeping mgr. and told her the situation. We hang out by the pool in the meantime. They did apologize but that was it. We chose this hotel based on it's location to the water front, very convenient and easy to get to.

I loved being able to watch the sunset and then the sunrise in the morning over the ocean. I really enjoyed my breakfast too. The food was very yummy, and the breakfast room has windows all around! I was able to take in the view of the sunrise, the bay, and the city as I ate.

"Sliding Glass Doors in the rooms no longer open onto the balcony. :("

Jennifer V, San Antonio, Texas 31/03/2019

I am pleased with the remodeling and improvements to upkeep the property as a whole. I was disappointed to learn that I was no longer able to open the sliding glass door in my room to allow the salt air in. The company has sealed the doors permanently shut. The customer service is still good. The breakfast is not what it used to be. I have noticed the room rates were more expensive than usual for this time of year. The improvements while needed do not warrant the excessive cost. The Omni was cheaper on priceline (even after parking fee) The Omni still allows for balcony access. Next time I will check the rates at the Omni as it might be a better value.

This was our first stay at the BW Corpus Christi, located on Shoreline Drive! And this property simply knocked it out of the ball park! Great first impression from Elizabeth who welcomed us and checked us in. Elizabeth was polite, outgoing and went out of her way to take care of us with explaining the benefits of the hotel to what restaurants were nearby. Elizabeth is very genuine and went above and beyond during our check in! Our room! Clean, clean, clean and comfortable. We had an excellent view of the Marina as well! Our room was bright, and inviting!! Kudos and praise the the Housekeeping team!!! Breakfast buffet!! Wooooooowzah!! The best buffet by far at any hotel we have stayed at. This team is welcoming, friendly, and extremely proud of the fresh and home-cooked foods they offer!! We really appreciated the interaction of the Manager that was on duty as well!

The stay started out fine. But the way a couple of situations were handled not so great! The AC unit did not work in first room we were switched and then had some phone issues with it going off and not working and not being able to stop it. The Sales Manager was very kind and apologetic. Some of the sales people at the front were not so friendly and this situation happened after 12am.

Best location overlooking the bay at a more reasonable price than other hotels comparably located. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. The free breakfasts were delicious and the breakfast staff are all South Texas friendly. The upstairs full-service lounge has spectacular views of the bay and sailboats, In fact, all the rooms also have spectacular views. We have stayed at other hotels overlooking the bay in Corpus Christi and this was our first time at the Best Western.

"Bay view stay"

Melissa E, Indianapolis, Indiana 23/01/2019

This hotel in downtown Corpus Christi has an amazing view of the bay. It is directly across the street from the sea walk, which is a lovely expanse to walk, run, or ride a Lime scooter on. There is an art museum a short walk away along with many restaurant choices. Though a bit of an older hotel, the staff has worked hard to keep this a nice place to stay. The top floor which houses the breakfast area and lounge has beautiful views of the bay and downtown area. On the first level there is a coffee shop and Blimpie Sub shop. The guest parking is right next door and free of charge.

This hotel (if they would update it) could be great. The view of the ocean and the breakfast were really the only good parts for us. There was one lady at the front desk that was very friendly. We arrived early AM (about 1:30 am) and checked out the next day (a day early) and got our money back. I hope they remodel and bring this bldg up to par for a beach front property.

Very nice hotel! the room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small but clean and had a separate vanity area. Wonderful TV channel selection. WiFi worked most of the time. Mini fridge,microwave, and single cup coffee maker. Comfortable easy chair. Nice view of the Marina (room 520) but cannot access the balcony due to storm damage. WONDERFUL full breakfast !!

Recently stayed here on business and was surprised! Looks like there has recently been a lot of renovations going on here. The beds were very comfy and the entire facility was clean and bright. Still a bit “rough” on the outside but sparkling inside. I had a pleasant but very limited interaction with the staff.

This hotel was in the perfect location for dining, shopping, and getting to and from all the places we wanted to visit. Directly across from Waterstreet Market where lots of things are happening, and also the marina, so wonderful views. The room was very comfortable, spacious, updated, and clean. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. One comment if you like to open your room up to the ocean smell and sounds - this hotel has not yet completed their external repairs from hurricane Harvey in 2017, so the sliding doors are sealed shut - the only disappointment.

Check-in: Quick and easy with polite and helpful staff. Room: The bed was one of the most comfortable I'd slept one in a hotel. Wish the pillows were larger and not the little square sized pillows like one would see on a sofa. Main issue with room was the balcony sliding door was not locked! Water pressure could be better in the shower as well. Breakfast: A nice variety of hot and cold foods were offered for breakfast (only bacon and hot chocolate would have made it better) with helpful staff. The view from the dining area was lovely while enjoying my meal.

Overall we were pleased with our stay. Right on the water - great views from the room of the bay. 11th floor bar and breakfast area offer drinks and nice views. Walk to a number of restaurants. Friendly staff, free parking, nice rooms. Odd A/C controls - finally found out that one removes the face plate to move the gauge to the desired temp Other than that no complaints. Some noise from the road at night but the hotel was quiet. recommend!

efrain_alcala, San Antonio, Texas 10/09/2018

I just want to start out by saying I was blown away with my experience at Best Western. When I first arrived the front desk was so helpful and informative. They understood my budget and accommodated in every way they possible. I also got a chance to meet one of the GM's Nicolas, who was very professional and well informed of the area and my stay. The rooms were a great size and the beds were dreamy. The pool was a crystal blue located on the second floor. I brought my 6 year old on my business trip and his favorite part was the breakfast in the clouds. The Breakfast buffet was located on the 11th floor with a spectacular view. What i loved was the time and love that was put into the food, it was made with Grandmothers Love, from what I was told. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone who wants a 5 star experience with a 3 star budget. you again best Western you have earned my business for life.

"In need of updates"

DeebieB07, Dallas, Texas 06/09/2018

We got room in the ninth floor towards the front of the building during the Labor Day Weekend. Pros: The room was nice with a good view. The breakfast and lounge areas also had great views of the marina. The breakfast had a lot of options. Cons: The bathroom and area in front with the vanity needs serious update. Moreover our bathroom toilet had a stain that even the housekeeping staff was unable to remove after much trial. I felt very queasy every time I had to use the toilet after that. The bathroom floor also felt sticky. The elevators and hallways also looked very tired. The hotel is need of good renovations.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your experience. We regret that you had issues with the bathroom cleanliness. I will have my staff look into that problem immediately.

"In need of updates"

3
Lauren A, Austin, Texas 04/09/2018

This hotel was nice enough for our short weekend stay, and considering I booked it last minute for a holiday weekend, the price was fine. However, it seems the only thing updated is the bedroom portion of the room. The bathroom just seem dirty and old. And the hallways, elevators, and lobby didn't have an updated feel to them. For 11 floors there are only two elevators. So there was always a line to wait for the elevator. The breakfast area was also overly crowded. For that large of a hotel, I feel the dining space should be double. We stood with our food in our hands waiting for a seat for several moments. Just not a well thought out breakfast space for the amount of foot traffic. It was nice to have breakfast on the 11th floor overlooking the marina though. Did not use the pool or restaurant on site. The location is nice, but unfortunately people like to drive very fast on Shoreline Boulevard at night and you can hear their loud cars even from the sixth floor. In addition, the toilets were extremely loud, so you really couldn't use the restroom in the middle of the night without waking people up. Our neighbors toilets could also be heard through our room. Also the toilet had a weird flush handle like you would find in a public restroom. I was unsure whether to use my foot to flush or my hand, it just felt strange and dirty. The beds were fine. Overall, just needing more updating to compete with all the new hotels out there. If I come to this area again, I definitely would find a newer hotel.

"Not what I expected"

Travelingadventures2, San Antonio, Texas 03/09/2018

I guess I was surprised that the hotel was very old and plain and in need of updating. The elevator is very small which requires more waiting time especially when folks are waiting to go up to the 11th floor for breakfast. The hallways are musty smelling, the door card locks are old and should be replaced. The Lobby is very plain and simple. I expected more for paying $200 plus a night. The hotel was clean, but certainly not what I was expecting. The customer service at the front desk was good. We actually decided to cut our stay short and headed back home early which was a great disappointment.

Stayed for three days. Great location. Staff was super friendly and helpful. A special shout out to Miss Anita for keeping our room spic and span. Loved the complimentary breakfast. Miss Rachel and the breakfast crew always greeted us with a smile. The ladies did a great job of replenishing the breakfast items quickly. The highlight for us was ending the day in the lounge on the 11 floor which has wonderful views of the bay. The hotel is dog friendly as which is an added plus for us.

User 28/07/2018

Our family stayed here for 2 nights during the week. This hotel is directly across the street from the bay, which is why I chose it. Check in was easy and the employees were friendly. We were able to check in a few hours early, which was great for us. They let us know there is construction ongoing including not being able to open the door to the balcony. Beds were comfortable and room was clean. Refrigerator and microwave are included. The bathroom has a strange configuration but was a good size. Water pressure was on the low side but not terrible. Shampoo and conditioner were in dispensers on the wall in the shower. The view from our room on 8th floor was awesome! Breakfast is included and served on the 11th floor which also has a great view of the bay. The eggs weren't my favorite, but there were many other options to choose from. They have cold cereal, pastries, oatmeal, yogurt, eggs, sausage, biscuits and a waffle maker. It does get a little crowded the later you wait but one of the employees made extra waffles in the back to help out with the line. There was a wait for the elevator at times, mostly at breakfast time, but nothing more than a couple of minutes. There are many restaurants within walking distance including the 2 story Whataburger across the street. This hotel is about 2 blocks from the Selena memorial. I read comments that some people had issues with the homeless here. We were only approached once by a man asking to play us music and that was closer to the memorial site. We walked across the street and along the bay at different times of day, even at 11pm. We never felt unsafe. We had no issues at this hotel and I would definitely recommend staying here.

I have alway thought Best Western meant low end hotel. I am glad I took a risk and booked this hotel. The staff is friendly, helpful, and attentive. The rooms are decent, clean, comfortable. For the price this is definitely worth it. Roof top Pool is great, close to the water, if you feel the beach/ gulf here is pretty then the view is wonderful!

Outstanding Free Breakfast with terrific views of downtown Corpus Christi. Need to install towel racks in bathroom area. Commode seat and flushing were downers. Great helpful staff quickly solved problems of room keys not working and lack of printer for computer in business area. Would be more convenient to have ice machines on every floor and we missed the convenience of cold drink vending machines. Again....without a doubt best breakfast we have ever experienced in a hotel. Worth recommending to others and will encourage us to return to this hotel.

"Nice hotel near the marina "

Samanthajones_83, United Kingdom 21/07/2018

I arrived at the hotel at 12.30, I knew check in wasn't til 4pm but I had been on the road for a few hours so thought I'd go straight to the hotel. The lady advised there was no rooms ready yet but she would have one ready for me at 2pm. When I came back at 2pm there was a different lady at the desk who abruptly told me there's no rooms, advised I was told to come back at 2pm and there would be a room ready and she rudely told me check in is at 4pm so they have until then to get a room ready. This left me annoyed, as she had just checked a couple in who were in front of me??. When I finally checked in at 4pm, it was by a lovely lady named Delma. She was so pleasant and friendly. She gave me information about the hotel amenities & discounts at local restaurants. She also checked me out 4 days later and I was presented with the same friendliness as when I checked in!. I was on the the 10th floor which is the top floor for the rooms, as there's the breakfast room & bar on the 11th. The room quite spacious and offered a lovely view of the marina. Sadly due to maintenance repairs on the outside of the building, we where unable to access the balcony which was a shame but as it was so humid out it was probably best to keep it shut anyway. The room had tea/coffee facilities, fridge and a microwave. The bathroom/vanity area was spacious. The breakfast area was on the top floor which gave a view of the city. There was a choice of cold and hot options and even Texas shaped waffles! The hotel has a bar, gym and swimming pool but I can't common these as I didn't visit/use these facilities. The hotel has ample free parking, most is open but there is limited undercover parking. Overall I would stay here again.

"Disappointing"

1
Balaji S, Allen, United States 08/07/2018

Based on 4.2/5 on reviews we booked this hotel for 3 nights and checked out after staying 1 night. The staff are exceptional and very pleasant. Everything else does not measure up to the 4.2 stars or the price we paid. Rooms and hotel is old and it shows. Carpet in the room was bad. Bed was clean but just ok (it did sink in the middle at least the one we stayed so was not very comfortable). Vanity is very small and a tight space. Bathroom seems a odd arrangement. The view is ok however the balcony is closed due to harvey damage and reconstruction. Elevator was a major turnoff because its very small for even a standard hotel so you had to wait quite a bit to get on it. Though they had a wide variety for breakfast, our experience was not so great. We asked if the hash browns creole had any meat and the lady said none and we found it had sausage (chorizo at the bottom), that was really bad. The orange juice was very watery and when I inquired the lady said it was a cocktail and thats expected however later we found out they were simply running out and had to fill it up. Muffins were sub-par and never seen such small bagels. It took some shaking of that container to get cereals out. And when we first came, police had blocked off the entire area and would not let us into Best Western parking even though we told them we were staying there and the staff had no clue about this going on and we had to park somewhere else and walk with our luggage to check in. Overall it was a disappointing experience for us.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel. We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that we did not meet your expectations. Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality and service has always been our mission. The elevators are a challenge for us due to the size. The elevators were built back in 1967 and unfortunately we cannot enlarge them due to the physical structure of the building, but they can get quite busy in the morning. I am sorry you experienced a problem with our breakfast casserole that had meat in it. Due to the Fourth of July parade and Fireworks, the Police closed off several entrances to the hotel but we did get them opened once we were made aware. We hope that you will try us again, and we can assure that our staff will do their best to accommodate you. Warmest regards, The Best Western Corpus Christi. General Manager Gabe Pena

We came into Corpus on Sunday for the holiday. Sat out on our balcony and enjoyed the view over the bay. On Monday went to the Aquarium which was wonderful then returned to our hotel. I tried to go out on the balcony but the door wouldn't open. I called the desk about getting it opened and was told that it had beeb sealed shut. No watching fireworks from our balcony. It spoiled the trip.

Enjoyed a family weekend trip to Corpus Christi Best Western on Shoreline Blvd. for my nephew's birthday celebration. We stayed at Best Western due to close proximity to shore and best of all because it was pet friendly. My beautiful baby boy was given a doggie treat when we arrived and was made to feel welcome. We enjoyed the extremely friendly staff, view, and cleanliness of the room. Best of all we had a view of the ocean and Whataburger. The breakfast is on the very top floor for stunning views and a good selection of food. We also went up to bar at night for a nice, relaxing view.A fun time was had by all.

NannieB2013, Dallas, Texas 18/06/2018

We stayed three nights in June with our grandchildren, ages 8 and 11. I chose this facility because of the location and it didn't fail us; it is across the street from our favorite restaurant in Corpus Christi. It is within walking distance from the marinas and the Salena Gomez memorial. The breakfast was awesome and the staff very helpful. The problem was the pool; It was small, offered no shade whatsoever, and, most importantly, it had a dirty "bathtub" ring every day we were there.

Perfect location to walk the shoreline and to downtown restaurants and art centers. Very friendly and helpful staff. Their happiness seemed to rub off on all of us. The breakfast is included and excellent. Again, staff tried to be helpful when I looked a bit lost. I wasn't lost - just amazed. The view of the bay was incredible. Food was so well presented and tasted good. Hotel and room were clean. You can actually sit on balcony of your room. Price for small dog seemed pricey to me. Also, no one seemed to know if we could bring dog in an enclosed stroller to breakfast area so my husband and I had to take turns eating breakfast alone because we never leave our dog alone in a hotel room. A designated area would be nice.

Hotel was great stayed there with the family for a few days, hotel was clean and staff was great.

Don't have any complaints, but if I had to have one it would be that the elevators are on the slow side.

I travel as part of my job but go to Corpus Christi a few times every year to enjoy some time off. Over the last 6 years since my girlfriend and I have discovered this hotel we have been very pleased with it as well as the entire staff who works hard to make our stay very enjoyable! The only problem with staying here is NOT the fault of the hotel at all- but with people thinking Shoreline Drive is a drag strip late at night. I really wish the CCPD would patrol that area more frequently to help bring that to am end.

Crawford S, Houston 15/05/2018

This hotel is located right where you need to be in Corpus Christi - directly across from the Gulf, the sea wall, beaches, and the marinas. Everything is just a comfortable walk away. Plenty of good, walkable places to eat, too. We had a 2 queen bed standard room. Our room clearly had been recently renovated. Everything was new - furniture, carpets (no odors!), countertops & sink/tub, and mattresses & bedding. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the rooms are quiet. Plenty of new towels, too. They have the liquid dispensers in the shower - body wash, shampoo, & conditioner. And they were full. Ice machines are on the even numbered floors, and they work. There's plenty of free parking, with a lot of it being covered. The full, hot breakfast buffet is included, and it is excellent. No matter your tastes, you will find many, many pleasing options to start your day. It is available from 6:30am to 10:00am. The ladies that operate the buffet are most pleasant, and they truly CARE that your breakfast experience is perfect. We witnessed the hotel manager approaching multiple people, on multiple occasions, including us, to ask if our stay was satisfactory, and offered her services if we needed anything at all. This property is well run, and it shows in every aspect.

Wish I had reserved this lovely hotel the first night I spent in Corpus. After a horrible night at the Holiday Inn Downtown, I moved to this Best Western, and could not have been more pleased. The staff is incredible. The rooms are very clean, very comfortable, and the bar on the 11th floor is not to be missed. The nightly rate is reasonable, there is no charge for parking, and there is even a coffee shop downstairs if you need more than what is provided in your room. Morning breakfast is much nicer than most hotels. A micro and fridge are included in the room, and frankly it was PERFECT. Great job Best Western!! Staying here made my trip the best it could be.

My son goes to Texas A & M Corpus Christi so we visit a lot. Our first stay here was after hurricane Harvey and while we have tried to stay at other hotels including the Omni we have found this to be the gem of them all. Front desk staff is always friendly and very helpful. Room always clean, ac on when we arrive, mistress and pillows very comfortable. I've had two knee surgeries and spinal fusion so this is very important to me. All rooms have balcony's with views of the bay. Easy walk to restaurants like Harrison's Landing and Joe's crab shack. And as far as “free” breakfasts go, one of the. eat i've had with plenty of hot food items. They also have one of the nicest top floor bars in town. beautiful views from very looking out over the ocean. I have stayed here (i think) 4 times now and the times i tried something different i regretted it and always return to the little gem of a hotel.

DixieSixx, Boerne, Texas 30/04/2018

I called ahead to make sure I got a 9th floor room, close to the water (rm 900 or 901), but when I arrived they tried to put me on the 7th floor. After some searching, I was finally placed on the 8th floor, right by the elevators. Not cool, but what could I do? Only 2 elevators were working, one of them being the service elevator. I only stayed on night, so it wasn't too bad. The room was very clean. The location of this hotel is great until the evening hours, when the locals decide to 'cruise' around Shoreline Blvd and one of the other streets behind the hotel; driving their loud vehicles and annoying 'crotch rocket' bikes. The sound reverberated off the buildings all night long. Smh. Overall I had a wonderful visit and the free breakfast was excellent. I'd definitely visit again.

The hotel is undergoing some renovations but it didn't disturb our stay at all. Our room with the partial ocean view was amazing! There was lots of room, fridge, balcony with a view of the colour changing bridge and the ocean. The breakfast was wonderful with a huge shout out to the cook who made hard boiled Easter eggs for the kids on Easter Sunday! Plenty of breakfast selections and pretty tasty too. Views were great from the breakfast room and lounge on the top floor. Pool was basic but it was nice to see them cleaning it with the vacuum one morning. Front desk ladies were very friendly. There is a Sub shop and coffee place on the main level if you need. Great location close to the beach, good restaurants and tourist spots.

We have stayed here a few times. We love the location and they have the best breakfast for any hotel. The beds are a little high to get into but the rooms are fairly nice and clean. We needed help with the TV and air conditioning and got it right away. It is great to walk across the street to the T-heads. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because it could stand an update. I think they are working on that.

katrinaroux, Washington DC, District of Columbia 14/04/2018

I loved the staff, they were amazing! And the breakfast and lounge were great BUT the facility was terrible! There was no hot water, no heat, no elevator, and loud. I was unable to enjoy my family trip to the area. The location is great if your downtown!

Wonderful stay from start to finish. Mandy checked us in with a friendly funny welcoming demeanor. (Give her a raise!) Parking easy and convenient. Lovely amenities...coffee/sandwich/smoothie shop on first floor, Grandview lounge and breakfast buffet on top floor with gorgeous views. Room was clean and comfortable. Pool was open but not yet heated for the season. Brrrr! Super convenient location with fabulous walks all around. We stayed in king room on 9th floor with awesome views. Everyone working in hotel was friendly, seem to enjoy working here. Will definitely stay here again. Love Corpus Christi!

On our first trip to corpus Christi to visit our daughter we stayed in one of the hotels along the highway not knowing any better. This time we wanted a place closer to the bay. This is a great location. Right across the street from the marina. We asked for an upper floor room so that we could enjoy the view and we weren't disappointed. from our balcony we could see across the bay all the way to the aquarium and the aircraft carrier. It was pretty neat watching the ocean going vessels coming into port. The room itself was quite comfortable and spacious enough for the two of us. A complimentary breakfast with numerous food choices was on the top floor which also gave you a great view of the harbor. They do have a small lounge on the top floor which also gave you great views from three directions. Sadly though they did not have any food service there, only drinks. I'd gladly stay here again. It is pretty centrally located with easy access to the highway and the sites in corpus Christi.

The staff is great and the beds and pillows are the most comfortable ever! I wish they sold those pillows to take home! Breakfast is always good and the lounge on the 11th floor has a floor to ceiling view of the sailboat races in the bay on Wednesday nights. They accept the Corporate Lodging Card as well.

"Great for location, nothing else"

JHDACD, Houston, Texas 17/03/2018

The location is perfect if you're visiting Corpus Christi. Right across from the bay, it's in the middle of downtown and has easy access to freeways and major streets. I didn't see much public transit, but I wasn't looking specifically since we had a car. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Free covered parking. And across a parking lot from Whataburger by the Bay, a two-story glory with seating on the balcony. That's the good. The not good: the building is old and it shows. I think it was an office building that was converted to a hotel. The air conditioning units are LOUD. The key-card lock on our door crapped out almost instantly. The maintenance guys couldn't have been nicer and they did the best they could with the resources they had, but it took a couple of hours to get fixed. Breakfast was really disappointing. I'm not a foodie by any stretch and normally chain hotel buffet breakfasts are just fine for me, but this one left a lot to be desired. I think they're not set up to do any cooking. The scrambled eggs were powdered (not a problem for me) and that was it in turns of hot protein. I think one pan of eggs had sausage or bacon mixed in, but no meat was available separately. You could make waffles or pancakes, but they had only one machine for each and the line was 10 deep all the time. The pastries were pretty puny looking. The biscuits were in the same case as the sliced bread. They weren't heated or kept fresh. You had to put them through the toaster to make them edible. Part of the reason I booked this hotel was for the included breakfast, and I don't think I've ever paid for a restaurant rather than eating the hotel breakfast — why pay twice? But this just wasn't worth it. Easier to go to Whataburger next door. I would suggest more steam pans with already made pancakes and waffles, biscuits, bacon/sausage, and potatoes. The hotel has a lot of potential to be a great option for families looking for a value hotel. At this point, though, it's just an okay option. Its only selling point is the location. Hopefully it will improve.

smitch8021, Dallas, Texas 14/03/2018

Second stay here and we really like it. Rooms are clean and spacious enough, breakfast buffet is a little limited but what they have is really good (pastry, selection of eggs, yogurt, fruit, waffle bar.) Where it really stands out is in the views from the room's balcony, breakfast buffet, and evening bar. We also love being within walking distance to the beach and so many restaurants. Early evening traffic was a little noisy at night due to being so close to the street, but the air conditioner masked the later evening traffic. We were able to sleep well. Also, if you check with the front desk, they have free appetizer coupons for several local restaurants. In hotel Blimpie's/smoothie place is an inexpensive and convenient option.

"Awesome “Family with Young Kids” Stay!"

tpham1114, Houston, Texas 13/03/2018

I am very germaphobic and I felt this hotel was very clean! I have two young kids and I dread hotels because they're usually dusty, carpet-stained, nasty bathrooms etc., but when we opened the door to our room I felt at ease which usually never happens. Everything was updated, very clean, the bathroom tile grout was clean and shower was mold-free. Minimalist bedding so no nasty comforter grossness there and carpet was new and not stained! This might be the first hotel room I've ever stayed in where nothing triggered my germaphobe anxiety! ?????? Also good to mention it's within walking distance to Landry's and Joe's Crab Shack and 5 mins from the USS Lexington and Texas State Aquarium and the awesome McGee Beach! (sp?) Anyway, if you are looking for a great place that is budget-friendly (free parking, WiFi AND breakfast!), and very clean, stay here!

Weston N, uvalde, United States 11/03/2018

Excellent location across the street from the docksand bay. The breakfast area is on the top floor giving a great view of the bay. The breakfast was much better than typical hotel fare. I did not realize spring break started that day. I learned that while driving to Corpus. I was concerned about crowds of loud people, but they were all at Padre Island and it was nice and calm here. It was a very good stay.

Rooms were clean and liked the set-up with sink outside of the bathroom area. Love the mini-balcony to sit and enjoy the view. Also nice to be able to get fresh air into the room. Was not impressed that the onsite Blimpies is advertised to be open daily until 8 but was closed on the Sunday when we got back from touring. Wide variety of food choices for the breakfast in a large, well lit room.

WiAng, WI 13/01/2018

At check-in I asked if we could have a room with a view and the girl said she would be able to give me one, was disappointed to arrive at our room in the rear of the hotel overlooking the parking lot. The girl was also sick and should not have been at work that day. Room was blowing super hot air so we turned off the heat and went up to the bar on the 11th floor, the view was amazing and the female bartender was very kind and informative this being our visit to the area, when we got back to the room we tried to start up the heat again as it was chilly during our stay, now all we got was cold air blowing. Maintenance guy came quickly and worked on it, he also turned out to be a super friendly and informative of our first visit to the area, he got the temp fixed to where we wanted but after that we were afraid to make any adjustments to the system as there was not thermostat. Breakfast in the morning was fabulous. We walked to a few restaurants in the area. The bed was comfortable, other than being disappointed in our room location and the inability to adjust the temperature, everything else was great, we enjoyed visiting with the bartender and the maintenance man very much, they should be commended.

Came here with my husband and our 2 dogs for NYE. Staff was very friendly and even gave us doggie goodie bags when we checked in!! Room was clean and cozy with views of the marina and our own private balcony. Walking distance to several great restaurants. Woke up in the morning and walked right outside for a beautiful stroll with the dogs along the waterfront. The lounge on the top floor also had amazing views of downtown and the water! Great deal for a hotel on the water and only $20 pet fee for up to 2 dogs. Very happy with our stay!!

One of the most accommodating hotels. Can say enough about the staff and the maintenance workers. Friendly and respectful, ready to assist you at any moment and attention to your personal vehicle. My car lights were left on and desk called my room to let me know and when I did not answer the room phone they called me on my cell phone. They took the time to locate me. A small thing like that goes a long way it shows attention to their guests.

This is a golf coast hotell provably has great views, but it was foggy when I stayed. The exterior of the building looked a bit weathered this beeing the off season and the week before christmas they might have been understaffed but there were some prblems first the Door handle wss broken. The Room smelled a little smoky but I'm not sure if that wasn't just coming from another room, but worst of all shower curtain was filthy had dried phlegm and Boogers on it. If they didnt wash that, what else did they not wash. And I didn't take a shower until the morning.

"Nice staff, creepy room"

jenniferkP5922AO, Cleveland, United States 07/12/2017

I debated about staying at this hotel, but saw good reviews overall. The staff was all very friendly and got me checked in/out quickly. The lobby area was shabby looking. Not the first impression I was hoping for. The room looked ok at initial inspection, but once I went to get into bed I got creeped out. It felt like there were some crumbs or something on the bedsheet. The bed was obviously older and not in great condition. It also had an old blanket on it. I also felt like I couldn't put my bare feet on the floor. I wore my socks the entire time and didn't put my bags on the floor. Best Western also needs to send the extra few cents/dollars and put individual shampoo bottles and conditioner in the rooms. Instead they have dispensers in the shower - once again not the impression I was looking for. They did have a microwave and fridge in the room which was a nice addition. The view was also nice. But the door to the balcony was quite drafty with the 20 mile per hour winds. I don't think this hotel was worth the price. If it was $60 per night it would be acceptable condition, but when you are paying > $100 it should be a good experience. I would suggest looking at other hotels instead of this one.

User 04/12/2017

the room we were in was very noisy, pipes, cars and hallway and oh yea a motor cycle group gets together at the Whataburger across the parking lot starting at 7 am on Sunday. hot water was warm in the evening, not hot... it did get almost hot in the morning. Great location near the marina but I asked for a bay side room online but found out they don't have any rooms that face the bay directly only from sideways I would have chose another hotel.

Gabe P, General Manager at Best Western Corpus Christi, responded to this review
Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your experience. We regret that you did not enjoy your stay due to the noise outside. There was a Toys for Tots rally on Sunday morning that had over 500 motorcyclist donating Toys for the needy kids in the area. That is not a typical Sunday morning for the hotel and it was very loud, I do apologize. The Hotel has beautiful views of the Bay from both the North and South sides of the building, but you are correct it does not have a direct perpendicular view of the Marina. Our lounge on the 11th floor does however have that view and it is beautiful. I hope you give us another chance when your visiting Corpus Christi. General Manager Gabe Pena

ubu760, Fargo, North Dakota 04/11/2017

When I got to my room it was 11:30pm. I needed a shower. I took a shower in medium cold water just to get cleaned off. I had to get up early to catch a plane. I wanted to take a warm shower so I got up at 4:30am let the water run for 20min. Water never got hot enough to take a good shower. I had to get going. So I checked out told the ladies at the front and all they could say was I will let maintenance know. For a 5 hour miserable stay I should be credited at a minimum 50% of the bill because I did have a comfortable 4hr sleep. The bed was comfortable!

Stayed one night on business. Right on the water, nice view from room. Some beautiful photographic prints on the wall. Rooms are a bit dated and not fancy, but were clean. A bit noisy. Limited parking as they were working on the parking lot. Free breakfast was just OK - eggs were overcooked (brown) and dry, but refried beans were the real south Texas deal could taste the manteca. Not an unpleasant stay but there are many nicer options available.

Hotel is dated and could used a renovation. Covered parking is poorly laid out. Room was clean but the bed wasn't the best. Rate was unreasonable given the class of service presented. The town in general is pretty run down. Thank goodness my business meeting finished early. Good to put BW behind me.

This was our first stay at this Best Western. The staff was very accomidating and cordial. Never been to a BW that offered an adult lounge before but it nice to go to to relax and have a beverage and watch the ball games. Plenty of room for a lot of people and the Nicholas (bartender) was very friendly and assisting. The views of the hotel show the marina & downtown skyline. We loved it and will be back.

User 16/10/2017

Great location, very convenient. They have free parking and the bar and breakfast rooms are up at the top on the 11th floor, where the best views are. The bar was lively and very nice. Breakfast was just average. Could improve with quality and assortment. Our a/c wasn't cooling properly. Maintenance came to check it out, and said they fixed the problem, but it never cooled well. Felt very humid in the room the whole night. Only stayed for 1 night, or we would have asked to change rooms. The staff was all very nice.

Whenever I travel to the Gulf Coast I always stay at the Best Western on Shoreline Drive. From here I can visit all the locations that I need to see. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the breakfast always starts my day. Now that they have added the restaurants in the lobby area, that makes it even more convenient. Great location Downtown and close to everything.

Only one person working the desk during check-in so had to wait in line 15 minutes. Room was clean but very worn-out looking: chipped paint, old stains on rugs, worn furniture. Toilet was partially clogged. The plumbing noises from the next room sounded like a howling dog.

Pro's Great Location - right across from The Marina and Water Street Restaurant Area Beds - The Beds are very comfortable. Free Parking Free Breakfast - was typically the same each day scrambled eggs, toast, bagels, cereal, waffles, pancakes. Con's Rooms are in need of some serious updating. Stains on the lampshades, showers that you had to let run for at least 5 minutes before you had hot water. Doors stuck, elevators were sporadically out of service. There are just much nicer hotels in the area for the same price point.

Laura H, Bridgewater, United States 30/08/2017

We were there the night before hurricane Harvey hit, the hotel was evacuated via 2 notes under the hotel room door the following morning. We were not rushed out of the door, the evac was done early and was uneventful, everyone got their breakfast, no drama. The staff was helpful and cheerful and not a complaint or show of worry about their own homes that must have been in danger. They just wanted to help the guests-amazing.

891dianemm, Milwaukee, United States 26/08/2017

I have rarely had a hotel stay where I loved everything but this was it. The front desk staff went above and beyond to smile, say hello, and meet my needs and do so efficiently. I was extremely happy with my room, the view was spectacular, looking out over the water, with a balcony I could actually stand on, and a very comfortable bed, and layout to the room. Had everything I needed, good internet connection, nice large desk to work on, clean bathroom, and closet to hang my clothes. Refrigerator in room for drinks. I was able to use the business center to print quite a lot of paperwork and they had no problem letting me do so for no extra charge. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Located right on the water, where I walked and watched the pelicans and the eclipse.

"Amazing breakfast with a view... elevators need some TLC"

Ginger O, Saint Martinville 21/08/2017

Let me start with the BEST part! Breakfast was great as well as the view that came along with it! Best Western has really exceeded expectations of breakfast at a hotel! I had read other reviews, that went back a number of months, and was disappointed to see there was still only 1 running elevator that only held maybe 6 people at a time, which made leaving hard when we had to each wait for elevators with minimal people which were also trying to check out, and not all the buttons in the one running elevator lit up. The lobby was NICE! The pool area was nice. The employees were extremely kind and helpful at all levels. We were in a handicap room on the 2nd floor which could definitely use some updating. There was a sink in the bathroom but no counter. there were 2 small shelves on the opposite wall which made it difficult to have things near the sink. The beds were comfortable but definitely worn. Room temperature was great! It was a comfortable stay, and may stay again. Just really need to fix the elevators.

Keaton F, Norman, Oklahoma 20/08/2017

Pros: great location, stayed in renovated room that had nice amenities (new TV, mini-fridge, microwave), got a good deal on a third-party site, fantastic free breakfast, staff was amazing in every respect (from specific room requests to my complaints), large balconies that face the water (no matter what side you're on), free covered parking Cons: a few pests in the room (tho management offered solutions and offered to move me rooms), one out of the two elevators were down causing long wait times (and reading old reviews, seems like it's been down for some time), hotel could be noisy at times with other guests (but the hotel was full and there were pets/children). Overall, the stay wasn't bad at all. It is not a perfect hotel, but there are plenty of perks that make up for the imperfections. If you book this hotel expecting a luxurious, knock-you-off-your-feet property, move along. But for a mid-priced stay with a few issues that aren't the end of the world, you'll do fine here. I can't emphasize how terrific the staff was at every turn. They always had a smile on their face, they went out of their way to say hello and check in and gave my pooch treats often to make sure he was satisfied too. At breakfast each morning, staff members were perky and used the opportunity to check in on how my stay was (and it wasn't a passive conversation -- one specific issue was addressed from that conversation within the hour).

thomh235, Sulphur, United States 17/08/2017

If smiles make a difference at check-in, you're gonna love the Best Western on N. Shoreline in Corpus Christi. Their breakfast is a notch above most other chains who offer a free breakfast. The view from their lounge is positively beautiful as it overlooks the Bay and the Marina. Why stay center city when you can stay on the water without getting squeezed by a room rate?

There was ketchup (I hope that's what it was) splattered on one wall & the bathroom sink did not drain well. Water was left standing in the sink waiting for the next person...YUCK!! I did tell the front desk when we were checking out. Since we were just there one night & not in the room very much, I didn't report the problem while there. I do hope it is taken care of for the next visitor. The location & value of the hotel made it worth while for us.

Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay. Our room had a great view and the breakfast in the mornings were very good. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We reported a problem with the balcony sliding glass door and mntc. was up there right away. Also, we thought the refrigerator did not work. We discovered by accident later that the power was on a light switch that apparently controlled wall outlets. While I realize this is not unusual for lights and other power, I have never seen a refrigerator controlled that way in a hotel.

"Decent rooms but old, smells mildewy, terrible breakfast"

KandyKane056, Houston, TX 23/07/2017

We visited Corpus Christi and Port Aransas for the 4th of July weekend. As expected, most of the hotels were full. We decided to stay in this one since is waterfront and you can walk to the marina and there are a few restaurants around walking distance as well. The lobby of the hotel looks remodel and there is a long table to connect your laptops and wait. Also, there is free Wi-Fi in the hotel. The hotel has inside of it a small sundry shop and a Blimpie's sandwiches with some coffee and drinks. The room was spacious and clean. It had a king size bed with a flat screen TV, a microwave and a mini bar. Next a desk with a chair and a bigger chair to sit. We had a balcony and a view at the pool below us. The bathroom looked old and needed to be upgraded. The tub had nicks and rust stains, the ceiling had wet stains, the door has a lot of paint nicks and overall the room smelled musty and mildewy. Other than that, the room was clean. The pool is on the second floor and is a little small, since it gets sun all day the water was hot and they had a few people swimming and lounging on the chairs. The pool and the area around it was clean and you could get dry towels and drop off the wet ones. The breakfast was held on the 11 floor with a nice view to the bay. The food overall was terrible (except for the waffles), the juice and drinks came all watered down with a small color of the juice. The fruit and bread tasted stale. The people taking care of the buffet were refilling quickly though. The waffles since they were made there were the best ones. Due to the weekend, the lines to get food were really long a well. As other people said, the elevator was a really slow and sometimes it was faster to go up and down the stairs than wait for it.

This was a great hotel to stay at for our vacation. Awesome views and a great buffet. Employees at the front desk were very nice and helpful. The reason for the 4 stars is that we stayed here 2 nights and our room wasn't cleaned. I had to ask for fresh towels at the front desk. For the high cost of our room I felt like it should've been cleaned.

"Great deal for the price-minor issues"

theresaf638, san antonio, United States 11/07/2017

location, price, pool and breakfast were excellent- room location not so much, was in front of the pool which incidentally meant dealing with loud people all day and after pool closing hours, lots of little people looking in our room and ice machine on the other side of the bed...

Great place for the kids to go and relax. They love the Breakfast in the Mornings before we go play the rest of the Day. The hotel is very convenient to all locations and its right on the ocean. This was our 3rd year in a row to stay here.

the place was over all a good experience for the price we paid with the group that traveled with us. The a/c wasnt working in the room we stayed in but over all we made the best of it and had a blast.

"Very disappointed and disgusted!"

User 10/07/2017

Went to Corpus for a getaway after a rough couple of months and was very disappointed in this hotel. I was a little scared after several recent reviews of the hotel, but when we got to our room the view was gorgeous and the room was great the FIRST night besides doors slamming and dogs barking all night. After coming back to our room the second night from dinner and the beach, we came back to roaches crawling on the night stand and in the tub so after a long day at the beach we had to change rooms at 11pm. My children were disgusted as we have never experienced roaches in a hotel room ever before. Elevators were very slow, small and got stuck for a hotel this size. This hotel allows any size dogs that bark all hours of the night and it smells like pet urine when walking out the main entrance of the hotel. The hotel also charged me double for our stay and say they can't do anything about it for three days. I would recommend staying at another hotel that doesn't have crawly critters and a staff that doesn't charge you twice for your stay and says there is nothing they can do about it for three days past your stay plus the manager doesn't return calls, you have to call them. My child has health issues so having roaches in the room and our bathroom not being cleaned is unacceptable. If your room is cleaned daily and there are no renovations going on in the hotel it isn't acceptable to have multiple roaches in your room. If you don't want extra guests in your room, dogs barking all hours of the night and doors slamming all night, then stay at another hotel. We will never stay at the Best Western Corpus Christi again and strongly recommend staying at one of the nicer hotels over looking the bay!

Jorge A C, Laredo, Texas 08/07/2017

Very good hotel for the price, can beat the fact that is in front of the beach! Breakfast was great a lot of selection, even you can make your own pancake. Very friendly people at the front desk. I like the concept of having the relax room with happy hour on the eleven floor, the view of the bay is spectacular.

Great location and amazing views. We watched the fireworks out our room window, which overlooks the marina. The breakfast was nice and included a variety of items to choose from. The rooms felt pretty spacious compared to other hotels I have stayed in.

"Good Hotel"

raoufan, Houston, United States 06/07/2017

The hotel is clean, elegant, located in a great part of town, very close to the beach and several restaurants and fast food joints within a walking distance. room was clean, beds were good, room had a microwave and mini-fridge. Amble free parking, some are even covered. Breakfast was very good with A LOT of variety. Only two elevator for 11 floors, so it took several minutes every time we went for one. Used the stairs several times instead. The Odd number rooms didn't have a view but even number rooms had a good sea / marina view. Staff was helpful. One made a mistake with my room, and I had to go to the reception to reactivate my keys every day. the bill had an issue at the end of the stay but they corrected it and gave me extra credit.

All rooms have a balcony with a view. This was great for Fourth of July Excellent and complete complimentary breakfast including waffles, pancakes, biscuits, gravy, eggs, meat, cereal, breads, coffee, flavored waters, all condiments, and much more. Check in was efficient and courteous. There is an excellent view lounge on the top floor (although this was closed during my stay for a private event). I am familiar with downtown Corpus Christi hotels and few aren't going to disappoint guests these days. Best Western on Shoreline is a very good selection.

The hotel has limited space for disabled parking. No Wheelchair ramp or elevator from the parking to Lobby. The sign for "Do Not Enter" have poor visibility. Overall the location of the hotel is great. Service is good. Very helpful staff. No first aid kit available in the hotel. Internet was excellent.

X3may, Texas 04/07/2017

Perfect little weekend getaway during July fourth weekend. It was busy but staff was always courteous and accommodating. There is a rooftop breakfast area with a beautiful view of the marina. Rooms have beautiful views from the balcony. Original whataburger next door. Had a small issue with the room, but Holly and gabby were quick to accommodate and handle the situation promptly, especially with the long lines during check in process, with a full house. A bit more pricey during this holiday weekend. They also have cool spinny shower heads. Would definitely come back again.

arto253, houston, United States 28/06/2017

The room was acceptable and the staff were very nice and helpful. But, one evening when we returned one of the rolled up towels was damp. And not all the coffee trash was picked up. Also, the A/C was either on or off completely. At least it got cold, but really cold at night when it could not be moderated.

Debra M, Lake Wales, Florida 27/06/2017

I'm always impressed with the friendly atmosphere, professional yet helpful staff and the overall good vibe from this property. We have made this our getaway spot in south Texas. They have expanded both the breakfast buffet to include a yogurt granola bar and also have a Blimpies, Kona Coffee and Smoothie restaurant on the premises. Quite a varied menu as well.

"Roach! Stay Away!"

Rebecca L, Independence, Missouri, United States 27/06/2017

My wife and I stayed for one night while we explored the southern Texas coast. As we were getting settled in for the night my wife looked up and there was a giant roach climbing across the wall. I dispatched it and took it to the front desk looking for some reassurance this wasn't normal. The front desk clerk claimed this happened because of the time of year. Maybe roaches like AC too? I asked for some type of compensation and I was told since I booked through a 3rd party they couldn't do anything. I have also emailed BW directly stating my situation and still have not heard anything. My suggestion would be to stay away from this place. They don't seem to be to concerned with customer care.

"Convenient and clean location"

LAH28, San Antonio, Texas 20/06/2017

We had no problem at all finding this hotel and checking in. The covered parking is located to the side of the building with a short walk. This hotel is located across the boulevard from the marina and bay. It has a Blimpie's Sandwich Shop but if that isn't your liking then there is a Whataburger in walking distance and behind the hotel is Water Street Seafood, Water Street Oyster Bar, Executive Surf Club and across the boulevard is Joe's Crab Shack and also Landry's. The elevator is very small but sufficed as it was not busy. Our room was on the side that the pool and parking lot were located. The room also had a small refrigerator as well as a small microwave and a cup coffeemaker. The pool was average size but we did not visit it, just viewed it from our window. We could see some of the marina but it was not a direct view. The room was a comfy temperature when we arrived around 3:30 and were able to check in a little early. This is not a luxury hotel but all was clean and neat but did notice some wear and repair in the bathroom. The bed was comfy but the pillows were lumpy. The TV worked fine and they do have a small-keyed safe in the vanity area. The sink is separate from the tub area but there is a large wall mirror with shelf in the shower area. The towels were adequate but need to grab one before showering as they are located where the sink is. This has a tub/shower combo and I have never seen a rotating shower head, which this has. I didn't particularly care for it as I prefer a strong, steady water flow rather than the rotating effect. They have wall mounted dispensers for soap, shampoo and conditioner. There are no other toiletries (ie. mouthwash, face wipes, shower cap etc.) You may be able to purchase these at the front desk area. The toilet tissue roll is difficult to reach when you need it as it is positioned behind the toilet. Since this is located on a boulevard we could hear the traffic when loud vehicles zoomed by at 11 pm back and forth even though we were on the 7th floor. But there was no hall noise at all. The roomy lounge is on the 11th floor and open Mon.-Sat. but closed on Sun. It is a very modern, clean design with a great bay view. The complimentary breakfast was in a very large eating area also on the 11th floor with side views of the bay and downtown Corpus. They had plenty of room to move around and a standard selection of items (ie. scrambled eggs, potatoes, refried beans, pastries, fruit etc). The potatoes were large cubes but mushy rather than crisp and the fruit was small selection of watermelon or cantaloupe. They had flour tortillas to make a taco. There was also a waffle maker and you could go simpler with cereal and some pastries. They had a drink dispenser with juices and flavored water. The area was very clean and they had one TV. Staff was visible the entire time to assist if needed. Our check out was no issue and the desk clerk, Mandy, was very friendly and enjoyed chatting with her. We would definitely stay here again as it is conveniently located, clean, comfy and appreciated the covered parking. On a side note, one evening around 9:30 after returning and exiting our vehicle in the lot, we were approaching by a polite panhandler. Luckily the parking lot is well lit since we were parked in the back of it so it wasn't too disconcerting. The next day in town we noticed a sign for not giving change to panhandlers. So there must be an issue with them in the area. We did see a few on the Shoreline walkway too but they were not annoying or bothersome.

"WARNING!!!"

dianacZ1527IL, San Antonio, United States 19/06/2017

We had a very unsatisfactory experience. The room had an AC vent that was leaking water. Getting out of bed and on the way to the bathroom the carpet was wet. Condensation was leaking down the wall continuously. The room was rented to us and is probably used regularly, which means mold and mildew could already be accumulated in the vents. The issue was reported and we were told it was our fault for turning the AC down to low. Really? Didn't get checked in until after check-in time. Kind of place you would expect in a very poor third world country.

The hotel room was very nice, the staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the room had no sound proofing and you could hear the very loud traffic outside. Our neighbors were loud on all sides and people would stand in the hallway at 2 am talking and would wake us up.

Clean clean hotel! Housekeeping was excellent. Enjoyed the pool. Comfortable beds. Grand views! Good breakfast. Loved the balcony to watch the sun rise each morning. Friendly staff. Great location to the restaurants we like! Good wi-fi. Cons: The elevators are small in size and it is slower than most places to move around and get where you need to go. Prepare accordingly. Mid week was better than weekends of course.

User 09/06/2017

Hotel was in a good location right across from the t heads on shoreline. We were pleased with the place until we woke up Memorial Day to attend a memorial at a cemetery in the area. We went to shower and get ready, and the shower handle was stripped out. The limited staff could not fix the problem. They cleaned up a room next to us and we had to shower there. We decided to stay at another location the following night.

Best western has continued to accommodate us and it is always an enjoyable stay! We take 2 corpus trips during the summer and always stay here for at least 4 nights. The rates, location, views, pool, customer service and let's not forget the breakfast (huge money saver) are all wonderful. The only itty-bitty complaint that I had was that we were not informed upon check in about no hot water, however when I called front desk they showed concern and gave me as much information as they could on when the issue would be fixed. We got back from our day out and we had hot water so it was fixed on our first day which was great! Room was always freezing which is good for my daughter and fiancé as they throughly enjoy the room super cold. Overall always a wonderful experience and an added bonus is that we are rewards members so I'm looking forward to the perks being that we stay yearly!

Wanda G, Fort Lauderdale 30/05/2017

But for the necessity of being in that area of Corpus for meetings, it's not a good value for your money. The breakfast room was overrun with so many people touching everything that I drove to breakfast at a cafe a few miles away. The renovated rooms look good at first glance, but the quality of workmanship is subpar. I'm usually not so critical but if I'm paying $200 nightly for such an undesirable area (area is rundown and many buildings in shambles or abandoned) I expect more from the accommodations. This is nothing like the better quality that BW chain offers in Europe. This hotel would greatly benefit from a Starbucks or other chain in the lobby.

S6873QWdonaldg, houston, United States 30/05/2017

Staff was very nice and helpful. Hotel was nice and in a good location for what we were doing. The Air conditioner in the room didn't work well at all. Even when we turned it down, it never really cooled the room off. Staff was helpful in trying to tell us how to get the thermostat down, but that didn't help. Hot water didn't make it to the shower. Showers were lukewarm.

"No Management to be found- No Ac and couldn't sleep here"

User 29/05/2017

We paid $270 for a one night stay, to get some rest before our 8 hour drive back home. Upon our arrival there were numerous dogs barking loudly on our floor. The hairdryer didn't want to work, some of the plugs were out and the ac wouldn't cool!! My husband had to go sleep in his truck with the AC on- which defeated the purpose of paying $270 for a room to sleep in. When contacting the front desk at the very first notice of the ac issue, we were told maintenance was heading home in a minute and thus couldn't look into fixing the issue now!!? We spoke to the front desk numerous times and were told no management with capabilities to make this right was around to help with our problem. Finally, the following day the maintenance mgr told us there was in fact a known issue with ac not cooling and he would track down a mgr to see what they could do for us, but again nobody was here to make decisions to help. Basically, we kept hearing you will have to try again later since no mgr is here to help. Again the following day, after being told a mgr would be in at 9am we contacted them and were told no mgr is here AGAIN! Supposedly, the front desk called a mgr on the phone who said they knew nothing of our issues! Which is odd because the maintenance mgr was calling and doing everything he could to get ahold of someone the day before.... I just can't imagine why a hotel wouldn't want to have some type of person with authority to keep customers happy within arms reach. I'm very disappointed that we payed this much for a place to sleep and couldn't do so. I hope the response to my review is more along the lines of solution driven versus excuse filled. I hope this was a random occurrence and not the norm for this place. The hotel is located in a cool area, imo but for these prices or ANY price people need better!

"Newly renovated hotel across the bay"

_graciela081, Victoria, Texas 23/05/2017

Pros: Covered free parking. Beautiful views from room balcony. Excellent free hot breakfast, breakfast area offers breathtaking views of the bay and downtown. Newly renovated, and rooms are nicely decorated. Sandwich shop/smoothies at lower level. Overall, hotel is in a great location, next to the waterfront with restaurants close by. Cons: A lot of homeless people outside hotel and in parking area. Very busy hotel, can get noisy at times. Elevator very small for about 3 people. Rooms very cold even without the A/C on. Bathroom area with a very small toilet and very low seat, toilet paper holder very far away, no place to rest towels because sink is outside the bathroom. No security bars in shower area. No fan in toilet area, gets muggy . No night light in bathroom. Bed pillows are square sofa size and smaller. No extra blankets. We had a mishap where maintenance tried to enter our room using his key without calling beforehand, but he was quite apologetic after the fact. Behind the hotel are some bars. Cars racing at night behind the hotel. Advice: Bring your own pillows. Bring winter pajamas and a sweater. As long as you are aware of the cons and prepare accordingly, this is a nice hotel. My family and I look forward to staying here again.

We stayed at this property while in town for a college graduation ceremony. The location is good with restaurants and the waterfront nearby. Our room had a king bed and was clean. Breakfast was standard hotel buffet fare, but as a bonus is served on the 11th floor overlooking the water. There is also an adults only lounge on the 11th floor and a sandwich/coffee shop adjacent to the lobby. I had a few minor issues. The hallway noise was loud. The elevators are very small. There was no sink in the bathroom. The hot water never really got hit enough for me. The toilet paper holder was positioned as such that you had to be a contortionist to reach it. All in all though I'd chalk these things up as minor. The staff was professional and courteous. I would stay here again.

Pabrown210432, San Antonio, Texas 15/05/2017

Stayed at this location which is just off Shoreline Drive. No beach access but a nice view none the less. I have eyed this property for a long time and it was either fully booked or over budget. The staff are friendly. From housekeeping, front desk, and the security that watches the parking lot all night. The breakfast staff are friendly and courteous. No complaints there. The beds are soft and easy to fall asleep. The air conditioning unit kept our room ice cold. There was a room on our floor that was smoking marijuana that seeped down the hall and into the rooms. The shower has its own soap dispensers (body wash, shampoo, and conditioner). The shower did not have hot water at about 2AM but did later at 10AM. Maybe high demand. Not much to complain about. Things were clean. Worth over $100 per night - not in my eyes. They are remodeling and maybe in the future the hotel will be worth that amount. There are other hotels that are better priced. Are we there as far as a 5 star stay? No. If you are getting the room at a discount rate then yes. Travel safe and have fun!

Top rate staff, decent hotel, clean, well kept. Location is choice, right across rom Marina. Only mistake I made was reserving through Reservations.com, which hotel did not have control over. They fixed issues created by them. Turned out to be a great stay, we will be back. And super pet friendly property, Milk Bones handed out at front desk. Reasonable fee, not like other chains, which didn't and won't get my business.

Discovered at 10 pm that our shower/tub wasn't operational. My husband was scheduled for a surgical procedure early the next morning so there wasn't anything to be done. Very disappointed & feel as though we should have received a refund.

The location was great and that's why we chose this hotel. However, the building seemed in disrepair as we had plumbing and A/C problems in our room as did our traveling companions in theirs. We would probably stay elsewhere next visit to the area.

We stayed three nights at the Best Western Corpus Christi. Our room had a great view of the harbour. It was clean but perhaps a little on the older side. That being said I think they are renovating. Could have provided more than one bar of soap though (lotion too please). Staff at front desk and throughout the hotel could not have been friendlier or nicer. I would certainly recommend staying here.

katherinebG4956VZ, Corpus Christi, Texas 04/05/2017

Almost everything about this hotel was great. The only two complaints I have is that the air conditioner in the room never really cooled the room 100%. It was just cool enough for us to be comfortable enough to not say any more than we already did. The other issue we ran into was the balcony door wouldn't close 100% all the way which caused the warm sea air to come into the room. Which could be why the room never got really cool!

Gabe P, General Manager at Best Western Corpus Christi, responded to this review

It was our first time to visit Corpus Christi and I was extremely pleased with the quality and the price of the best Western and how close it was to all the activities. We especially like the sitting deck on the second floor that we could enjoy the view of the marina. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful to answer your questions and they did an awesome job. We were traveling with our small dog and it was a very dog friendly place.

On the marina,your paying for that,not the quality of room.Felt as if the pictures of the rooms did not truly show what you really get.Was in the process of being renovated so hopefully it is better when completed summer of 2017.AC couldn't cool room very humid when we stayed and shower didn't have enough water pressure.Felt like I should have did more checking of reviews before booking.

Stay was good. We weren't able to sleep very well as we kept hearing either the flush being used like 30 times. Not sure if it was that or some issue with plumbing. No body lotions were provided. Nice view. We stayed on 9th floor. Good breakfast, although it would be good if they added more fruits/healthy options.

Stagalv_10, Galveston, Texas 13/04/2017

My son and I stayed at the Best Western Marina Grand Hotel in February of 2017. I have stayed here in years past so was familiar with it. I was pleased as it has been updated nicely and felt comfortable and clean. It's definitely an older property but don't let that bother you. Really the only thing to complain about is that the old sliding door to the balcony was hard to open and close. The breakfast was quite good and gets you set for the day. I believe the number one thing about this hotel is its location. Once you exit the door you can literally walk to 4 or 5 decent restaurants / bars in a matter of like 4 minutes. Plus you get a great view over the marina.

This hotel is dated, but its location, views, and breakfast area are outstanding. The hotel staff are truly a professional lot. During my stay I observed a lot of construction. Possibly renovations. My room was well stocked, and most comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and well prepared. I usually stay at the Omni, but they were booked, as it turned out, I saved a bunch of money, and found a new favorite hotel. Well done B.W. See you soon!

The hotel was newly renovated and looked aesthetically pleasing. The hotel staff were extremely cordial and helpful, we were traveling with 16 teenagers and our check in was smooth.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay at our hotel. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay.

I will address the problems with the breakfast staff to ensure that the complimentary deluxe breakfast is fully stocked until closing. Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Corpus Christi. General Manager Gabe Pena

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.

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.

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!!

CMBtx, Texas 23/08/2016

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.

Tracy D, Houston, Texas 19/08/2016

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.

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!

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.

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!
