"Disappointing"

1
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.

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

Unfortunately due to the damage from Hurricane Harvey we have not been able to control the heat and humidity in our guest rooms. The seals on the doors were completely ripped off the frames. The high humidity with the rain the last few weeks have made it a real challenge to control the guest room temperatures. I apologize for the experience and hope you will give us another chance.

"Nephew's birthday"

24/06/2018

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.

"Great location and breakfast but don't bother with the pool"

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.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your experience. We regret that you experienced problems with the pool during your stay. I assure you that the tile edge will be taken care of.

08/06/2018

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. Breakfast and parking were free and you really can't have a bad brow of the bay especially at night when everything is lit up. Don't have any complaints, but if I had to have one it would be that the elevators are on the slow side.

The BW Corpus Christi is located in a great location: bars, restaurants and across the street from the Bay Front Boardwalk. After dinner our family walked on the Boardwalk (great for walking in morning, day or evenings plus it is very safe). The entire staff at the BW are very friendly and make you feel right at home! The lounge area has a beautiful view of the bay.

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.

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.

This hotel was a good economical choice. It was clean but not spotless. The staff was friendly, parking easy, and access to the beach was a short walk (across a busy road).

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.

Well maintained traditional city hotel right at the Corpus Christi marina. The rooms facing north open a beautiful view towards the marina and the bay, plus each room has a balcony to enjoy e.g. sunrise and set.

I was moved into three different rooms becausr two of them had non-functioning toilets. The move kept me up until midnight when I was in town for business. I was denied a late checkout (1 hr) even though the hotel wasn't even completely booked. I turned in my room keys and checked out in person after one night. I was charged for two nights.

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.

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.

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"

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.

"Walking distance to the beach and the best Whataburger"

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!"

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!

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.

"Great view and breakfast!"

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"

2
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.

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

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.

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.

"Great location & views"

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.

Holly, who works the front desk, does a fabulous job of multi-tasking while smiling and taking care of the customers in front of her.

"5 star service during hurricane evacuation"

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.

"Truly exceptional business stay"

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"

3
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.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your experience. I am pleased you enjoyed the deluxe hot breakfast we have on the 11th floor.

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).

"Fun staff, Good Value"

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"

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.

"Very disappointed and disgusted!"

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!

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.

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.

"Disappointed with hotel"

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.

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!"

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"

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!!!"

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.

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!

"Ok if you absolutely need to be in the area"

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.

"It was hot and not"

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"

2
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"

4
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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Way overpriced for what it offers. Never before had a room with no towel bars on which to hang washcloth and towels. Very noisy air conditioning system. Staff was average. Breakfast offered many choices, but long lines for waffles.

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

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

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.

"Good location, but so-so value"

08/09/2016

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.

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!

Overall nice hotel and good customer service. Decent breakfast buffet. The bill was not correct. Mistakes happen...but it's all about how fixing the issue is handled to make a customer happy and keep them as a customer..

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.)

What can I say, our experience at Best Western this past weekend was perfect. The receptionist help us with everything and all our questions were answered.

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.

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!

26/07/2016

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

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

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

"Comfort and convenience"

22/07/2016

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

Can view the Lexington and the boats coming in, with a lot of activities to participant in if you like or just sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. Several places to eat but are a little pricey.

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

"Average Hotel in Corpus"

03/07/2016

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

28/06/2016

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

28/06/2016

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

Great breakfast, great view, decent rooms. Horrible internet connection and loud streets at night. Stayed in room 509, low water pressure in shower and several of the outlets did not work. Covered parking fills up fast after 4.

Well maintained hotel across the street from Corpus Christi marina. Rooms recently remodeled,everything nice and clean. Large room, AC worked great. Nice pool but the tile could use a good scrubbing. Separate covered area for those who don't want to be in the sun. Several nice restaurants within easy walking distance, and for fast food, there is a 2 story Whataburger 1 block away. Short drive to freeway. Fantastic views from 11th floor lounge and breakfast area

Very clean, friendly staff and super convenient location! My son loved the pool and the fresh waffles for breakfast :) The only thing I didn't like was the shower head and water, it got cold right in the middle of showering and the stream was very weak. Other than that, this place was great for a quick family get away.

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

"Panic! At This Hotel "

11/06/2016

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

Gabe P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Corpus Christi, responded to this review
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 sincerely apologize that the plumbing issue after being repaired when you departed for the concert reared its ugly head. Not to make excuses but the neighboring room was the cause of the problem. I hope you give us another chance when choosing to stay in Corpus Christi. General Manager Gabe Pena

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

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

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

06/06/2016

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

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 had issues getting into the pool.

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

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

11/05/2016

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

There's some motor noise running all night. I can't sleep at all. I call around 11:45pm to request to move. But I guess due to the event in town, they sold out. I go down the next morning around 11:00am, they switch me to new room on the 7th floor. The 1st room I am in, HK is doing a better job clean the room than the 2nd one I stay in.

This place blew my away. I have stayed there twice. Each time I was lucky enough to have a room with a balcony overlooking the harbor. The breakfast on the 11th floor is included and the other side is a bar with the view of the harbor. I'm usually all about price, but I. This case value far outweighed price. A must for visiting Corpus..

My husband and I stay here on a recent trip to visit his son. Everyone here was extremely nice and helpful. I can't say enough about the friendliness of everyone we encountered. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have ever seen with very good food. We each received a complimentary drink from the bar. The view from the room of the bay was great. Yes, I would definitely recommend staying here! The area is gorgeous!

Excellent stay, Enjoyed the breakfast, did not get to enjoy the pool because of the weather, but pool area looks like lots of fun. The view of the marina is amazing. Beautiful sunrise while having breakfast. The only little thing I can think of that they could change is having pillow options, but that's just me being picky.

Great location. Comfortable rooms, outstanding service desk, and a super breakfast buffet are a welcomed, and refreshing change from most B.W. hotels. Its the little amenities, like plenty of coffee, a nice supply of creme, and sugar, soap and shampoo dispensers, in the shower stall, and a revolving, massaging shower head, which earned this hotel, my 5 star rating. I was honestly surprised, by the caring attitude, exhibited by all employees. This hotel, in my opinion, is my idea of a home, away from home! Well done Best Western.

We have stayed here several times, but the most recent was Thanksgiving weekend of 2015. This is a comfortable hotel. The rooms are large enough and the beds are comfy. They serve a good breakfast every morning in a large room at the top of the hotel overlooking the bay. There are lots of selections for breakfast including make your own waffles. The staff is very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We found this hotel online and was happy with the reviews but once we got there it was beyond our best expectations. The staff was very friendly, location was amazing and the little perks such as the hospitality suite and the cards for discounts at local eateries was icing on the cake. Will def come back again. Only down side was elevators are extremely slow but when we could we just got our exercise and used the stairs!!

Spent one night here on our way to Port A, Texas. Nice stop in downtown Corpus Christi. Had a nice balcony room that was very pleasant. Staff was top notch and helpful. We had checked out and forgot some items in our room they let us back in right away had bagged the items for us and even let us put on our swim suits as we had unexpected beach plans. It was spring break so very busy and the line for breakfast was crazy long so we didn't eat at the hotel. A really good choice if you want to see the sites in Corpus Christi.

Decent hotel for the price. I stay at this hotel at least 10 nights per year. Clean and very nice Staff. The thermostat for controlling room temp does not work well though on any of the rooms. (It's either too hot or too cold, hard to set for a temperature in the middle) I wished they had a bit softer beds but I have medical issues so I am more accustomed to sleeping on a softer mattress.

"Great location - nice breakfast - good views"

08/03/2016

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

We liked the location, the room was comfortable, clean and met our needs with the usual, microwave, refrigerator, desk. Reviewers often slam the free breakfast. I don't know what they are looking for. This one had fruit, hot and cold cereal, either bacon or sausage, sausage and gravy, scrambled eggs, yogurt, good coffee, whole wheat/white bread, english muffins, assorted pastry, and a new pancake maker (a bit fickle at times, giving staff a challenge but interesting). What made our stay here was truly the staff from the font desk but especially the two women in the breakfast room, Alisha and Michelle. The free wine or beer in the rooftop bar was an added plus. Nice view from here. We stayed three nights and had no complaints.

"Not a good choice for a stay on Shoreline Blvd."

10/02/2016

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

The $20 dollar pet fee is utilized to cover the charges uncured by the pest control company after all pets depart from our hotel rooms.

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

Gabe P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Corpus Christi, responded to this review

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

Gabe P, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Corpus Christi, responded to this review

Miranda, Alisha (trainee), Melanie were some of the best receptionist we have had in corpus! They greeted us every morning and evening! They always had smile on their faces as well! The hotel looks creepy from outside, but it's decent from inside! I would recommend it and will bring my family to stay here next time :)

This hotel has an amazing location and the views from the rooms are great. Each room even has a balcony! The Front desk staff Chelsea and Melanie were very helpful when we needed directions, and they provided excellent recommendations for dinner at Waterstreet Oyster bar and they gave us a coupon for a free appetizer. The house keeping staff was very friendly and helpful. The lounge on the top level has the mos wonderful view. I can't wait to come back and visit in the summer time, I'm going to recommend to all my friends.

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

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

Raul H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Corpus Christi, responded to this review
Thank you for your review of our property on your last stay with us, I am always glad to hear that some of your expectations were met at our property as for our city, I feel it has grown since your last visit with more attractions and our downtown area with more businesses opening up.

"In the heart of downtown Corpus, a chic Best Western"

28/10/2015

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

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

Raul H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Corpus Christi, responded to this review
Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property on tripadvisor. We value your feedback. By you telling us what you liked about your stay and how we can improve, even when the drag racing at night is going on you are helping us implementing ideas for us to deliver a superior experience for you and other guests in the future.

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

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

"Worst experience with Heating/Cooling system"

19/10/2015

When we checked in at the hotel it was kind of freezing at the reception. But it was worse in the room. It was 55 degree F when we entered. We tried to adjust the thermostat which worked on water pressure and it made a pressure releasing sound which was annoying. We called maintenance and they said it is blown up internally and they have fixed it and it will take 20 min to recycle and adjust temperature. It did not work with the temperature but somehow got rid of the pressure sound. We opened the side doors and it was really pleasant weather outside. We spend time in the balcony and kept the door open whole night which increased the temp to 65 F. We had a one year old who was not at all comfortable whole night. Advice to people who take priceline Name Your Own Price deal. You might get 40-60% deals but try to understand that what you are getting is in fact what these hotels are not able to sell in general market

Good sized rooms showing a fair amount of wear and tear but otherwise functional. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bar on the top floor has a nice view.

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

02/10/2015

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

Raul H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Marina Grand Hotel, responded to this review
My sincere apologies for not getting a goodnight's sleep during your stay at our property, it's unfortunate that our hotel is right in the middle of our city's downtown district and it's night life is very active with the restaurants and nightclubs that surround our hotel but every time we do get a noise complaint we call our ccpd and they always return with an answer that no one wants to here and that is as long as the night club's adheres to the city's ordinance of the noise decibels there's not much they can do about it. Again my sincere apology.
