Best Western Plus
The hotel is as fine as most I stay in. The water pressure is a little low. Air conditioner could work better. Close to where I needed to be for work. Gas station across the street. Easily accessible to the highway. Everyone working there was very nice. I checked in and out very effeciently.
Jessica at the front desk was very helpful and nice checking us in and telling us about the hotel. the hotel was clean and well taken care of. It was very quit and we will definitely be staying again.
I had to book my hotel last minute because of a death on the family. The staff was great and the hotel was nice and smelled great. It made my staff comfortable. We were able to focus on family instead of an uncomfortable stay. Thank you Best Western!
Room a.c was not working. Promptly was moved to another room. BIG PLUS. however there was a "party" going on at the rear gazebo that lasted til 3am! My room was right above that area. Attempts to contact desk were unsuccessful. At least 10 to 15 people were out there drinking and bbq in. On a Monday night. Was hard to get any sleep.
My children and I stayed here to attend a family wedding. We weren't expecting too much since it is located right off the highway. Which was true as there was nothing to really do in the area. Check in was quick and out room was ready (we arrived before the actual check in time). Our room was on the 2nd floor and. when we got off the elevator the tile in that area looked as though someone hat spilled something. Room was ok. Tile at entry could of been mopped better. Bathroom was strange as the toilet was situated in the middle of the bathroom. So it was hard to be at the sink without bumping into the toilet-just a weird configuration. Friday night was not too great as my son and I heard people running up and down the hall and making lots of noise. This was at 2:00 AM! Breakfast Saturday morning was not too great. Coffee could of been better. It actually tasted like brown water. Kids nibbled on toast and the juice coming out of the juice machine was water. Only stay here if you have to.
An adequate place to stay. Had a rushed arrival, pre-registered and still was delayed significantly at check-in. Informed staff member of necessity of speedy check-in to no avail....Would not want to use this feature (pre-check-in) if the speedy service is represented falsely.
does Best Western is beautiful of doubt everything was immaculate had fire pits outside had a really pretty swimming pool can't stand up a level pack Christmas tree inside of the huge lobby I had stationed in every level setting mute the phone out of the room I had one of the best breakfasts I've had just 10 * presidential Hotel because this is suck it up
No linens for sofa bed where kids needed to sleep. Front desk phone not answered at 9pm, and "24 hour staff" could not be found anywhere. Luckily linen storage area was unlocked so I just went in and got the needed linens so kids could go to bed.
Room smelled of mildew, floor tiles greasy and slippery. Worst breakfast ever; no meat or scrambled eggs, dried-out bagels smeared with overcooked eggs, French toast that looked like it was used to clean bugs off windshields. Far below Best Western's usual high quality. AVOID! At least until they hire a real cook, shampoo their carpets, clean their AC coils and clean the grease off their floor tiles.
Great place to stay and very comfy! Hotel is very clean and staff are accomadating! Beds are nice and comfy and the amenities are priceless. THis is my place to stay when I come to Corpus Christi. Staff are very nice and always remember me.
Booked a more expensive room with a balcony. The gave us a room on the 1st floor with a view of the parking lot. Did not matter because the wall, of the balcony, was very tall and if you sat down - you saw a brick wall. So - 15 minutes after being there a group of circus performers got the room above us. We heard it all. I asked the front desk to have them hold it down. It got worse. I asked to be moved. They did and it was much better. The door to the bathroom was on a rail and it was heavy. Every time I went to the bathroom, in the middle of the night, I woke up my wife with the scraping and groaning of this door. The breakfast was good, but a large group of kids came down and cleaned it out. We had to go ask to restock the breakfast. Once we asked - they jumped and refilled it nicely. Not really worth the price we paid. Would only stay again if the price was much cheaper.
The free bar after work happy hour between 5:30 and 7:30 was the best. That is why many (all) keep returning. Very good drinks and beer selection. The bar is set up as a sports bar. The bartender was very good and professional. I will stay there again on my next Business trip.
The entire staff was great! We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel and the grounds. Only think we thought was odd that the hotel bar is only open Monday thru Thursday. We would stay here again for sure.
This hotel is great. It is lower in price than those closer to the gulf, but is a very nice hotel. The staff is friendly, the breakfast is hot and good, and the rooms are clean and accommodating. There are no amenities that a more expensive hotel have that this one does not include. The only issue I had was the bed was very high off the floor. I basically had to climb onto it and the pillows were more like throw pillows size wise.
We paid $150 per night during the summer season (Late July) so that we could vacation in Corpus for a long weekend as a couple. It turned out to be a disappointing experience overall. Apart from the moderately attractive appearance of the hotel, there were several design flaws in the room that caused functional problems for us during our stay. Our bathroom door was very heavy and it would slam into the glass shower sliding-door every time we opened it passed a certain point. The bathroom was so small that the builders hadn't hinged the door in the right direction so that it would open outwards instead. Ridiculous. If an accident happened and the shower shattered we are well aware that we would be the ones charged despite the functional flaw. The toilet seat was too small for the actual toilet and my husband would slide on it and almost fall off while on it. Let's face it, no one wants to fall off the toilet when they're dropping logs. The electrical wiring in the room posed not only functional problems, but violated safety standards as well. An entire wall of outlets were controlled by a switch (which is normal so you can easily turn everything off), but the problem was that we couldn't turn off the lights separately if we still wanted to use the outlets but keeps the lights off. We ended up having to use a different wall to charge our phones and plug in our devices. Breakfast was mediocre, there was hardly enough waffle batter and toppings supplied relative to their popularity. On the second morning, I noticed the hotel reused the old batter from the prior morning because we went to breakfast earlier but the waffle batter was out, previously there was about a quart left, and I could tell by the copious amount of toppings left that they never replaced the batter that ran out. The hotel charges you for breakfast within the cost of your room- nothing is ever "free". The front-desk attendant only handed us one pillow and one roll of toilet paper when we asked for extra for the king-suite we stayed in. There was two of us, and yet it felt rather stingy that we only received 1 extra pillow. The rooms, pool, and lobby are all made to look bigger than they are in the pictures, and unless you reserve an "executive" king suite for more than $150 a night on the outskirts of Corpus Christi, you are not getting more than a microwave, a mini-fridge, and bathroom sink for food preparation. This hotel seemed to be most popular with families who had kids; which wasn't an issue, but if you're planning a get-away be prepared to be underwhelmed and to stand in an elevator that smells like feet and pool water from the tiny pool they have. Overall, I feel like the reviews are very inflated for the cost and feel of our stay. I've stayed in nicer, cheaper hotels, with full kitchens large indoor pools and separate rooms in Houston. Which is ironic considering the price point differences of the two cities. Literally the only two "executive" features of the hotel was the Qi charger on the night-stand, and the fact that the hotel offered decent security for their Wi-Fi.

Although this hotel is about 10-15 minutes away from downtown, it was a really welcoming hotel. Upon arrival, I was notified of breakfast times in the morning, fitness room times, pool times, and free happy hour going on. I usually have issues with my key card for the doors, no problem. I settled fairly quickly in, went down stairs for a glass of wine, and was able to take it back to my room to get some work done. The rooms are very clean, had a fridge, and microwave, spacious bathroom. Even the decor looked like they put more thought into it than some other hotels. They were accommodating with my work expenses and the breakfast was great. They even had almond milk (the kind I drink) as a choice! Overall very nice and would definitely come back.
We had a wonderful stay. Breakfast was great. We enjoyed the pool. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The lounge area is very large and there was an array of many different breakfast options.
The check in was fast, the rooms were GREAT! Very Spacious clean and we did not need anything and the breakfast was Awesome so much to choose from and I believe they have complimentary drinks M-T after 5 at the bar
Rooms are amazing here and the staff is very accomodating. Open bar has alot of selections. Noise is not an issue here. Beds are so comfy and rooms are very comfortable. I highly suggest staying here. It is still close to many things
I loved the environment. Very calm. The staff was friendly. Room were clean and the restroom was clean that's a plus. Beds were comfy the pillows were fluffy. My room had 2 TVs one in living room the other in bedroom that was awesome.
Very Clean and modern. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. All the pillow were very hard and hurt my neck. Breakfast did not have variety. The internet was very slow during the evening and night but improved in the morning.
Great place to book for your next vacation. Location is just about right, staff were friendly and informative, rooms were spacious and clean, they have a good variety of continental breakfast every morning. The hotel overall was great, clean and best getaway vacation stay.
Best hotel i stayed at so far ! Very muchh recommend! A lil far from the beach bt wld stay there again love that they had a bbq pit for outdoor cooking connected to hotel vas line which made it very more easier to cook !
People in front are very friendly and informative, the room was very spacious and clean, so was the bathroom. The morning breakfast was super good and with enough variety to please all tastes. There is enough parking with elevator to all floors.
This hotel is a nice, clean hotel. It has a friendly staff (not only the 2 check in/out people we encountered but the housekeeping staff we encountered throughout our 2 day stay. Every one was friendly and had smiling faces. Even the night watch person was friendly when we arrived at midnight) The hotel in itself is clean. The bedding was clean, our room was clean, front area was clean, and you could tell housekeeping was trying to keep up with Memorial Day weekend traffic in the elevator and walk way areas. I will say, it was noisy with the people upstairs, like they didnt know how to walk light footed, but we didnt complain to the hotel and its not really their fault as a hotel so Im not taking points off for that, and after all it was Memorial Day weekend, what can you expect. Another draw back, that you cant tell on a map is its location to everything. Its about a 10 minute drive to anywhere to get to a main highway to get to the main attractions in Corpus, like a beach or the aquarium and so on. Again, not necessarily the hotels fault so I wont take off either. Overall, this is a good place to stay, its friendly and clean.
When I arrived to check in I had time wait a little bit, but a man who seemed to be management walked by and assured me someone would be right with me. He went in the back and a representative assisted! It was refreshing to see Customer Service still exist! I really appreciated the acknowledgement and follow through!
The hotel is fairly new but very modern and clean. I stayed in an King non smoking and it was beautiful. I loved the design of the room and the bed was VERY comfy. I liked that the alarm clock doubled as a phone charger with USB and outlet connectors. Also it has a wireless charging pad. Shower was BEAUTIFUL as well. Great place with an amazing price too.
Failed to service our room with new sheets and towels while we were out for the day and they didn't really do anything to rectify the issue when we reported it. Pool was also ice cold. I give them 2 stars instead of 1 because breakfast was good and check in lady was friendly.

Great breakfast , slept good in the comfy bed only thing we wish was better weather. We left home for warmer weather but had 1 good day then it was warmer at home than Corpus Christi. Hotel was close to everything. Had to get use to the frontage roads which we don't have at home. Drivers were pretty crazy. NO ONE did the speed limit, if it was 70 they go 85.
The executive residency puts a neat spin on the best western brand. The ER rooms are quite large with a beautiful bathroom and overall quaint feeling. There is free breakfast that is a step above your normal continental style. M-Th 530-730p there is a happy hour with complimentary drinks, there isn't a limit unless the bar keep determined you need one. Every single staff member here is extremely kind and hardworking. Parking is plenty, the place is very quiet and in a somewhat remote area but within a mile or two of serious commercialism such as shopping and food and what not. Jack in the box and a convenient store/gas station is within walking distance. There is an outdoor pool as well.
As you are entering Corpus on IH 37 there is a fresh new hotel under the BW banner that is an attractive location with very nice amenities and high standards in furnishings but also basic to the needs of travelers without a huge room rate Stop in for a bit of a different experience, check in at the bar on ground level for a drink if you are so inclined. A happy hour is in place daily. Bath linens are nice, bed is comfortable, TV is up to date micro, fridge (no freezer) is roomy. Location is close to highway for a quick jump east, west, north, or south moves.
This hotel is new with friendly staff and well appointed rooms. Great value and location for a leisure stay. Hotel also allows pet guests which my two fur girls totally enjoyed. The breakfast buffet was enjoyable as well.
Will be back, Loved the staff and always smells amazingRamona is awesome always has a smile noo matter how busy or how big the school is that she just checked in. We will be back next year with the Saxet Gun Show.
Guys, last time we stayed in this Best Western Plus during our previous business trip and we were impressed very much. So this time we came back. It looks like a return to home! The management knows the right understanding of hospitality and comfort. Everything is done to make the traveler feel as he/she is at home. Starting with the interior of the hotel and the rooms particularly, various meals, wonderful swimming pool, and finishing with complimentary laundry. Besides, you may buy a detergent at the reception. My personal opinion that the Best Western is the Best Hotel for me throughout the world whenever I stay (in Germany, Spain, Turkey) I always compare their hotel with the Best Western, the american Best Western is simply the best.
Very clean hotel and comfortable beds. We had a suite because it was 5 of us. It came with a fully equipped kitchen including dishes. Everyone had their own bed. Staff was great. We had an issue was the mosquitoes and our toilet kept backing up. We could not enjoy the barbeque grill and patio area for the mosquitoes. We did not get to have the free breakfast because it was very crowded. But we will definitely stay again.
We stayed on the 4th floor. Room was bigger than expected. Staff was friendly in general. Hard to tell which door was the front door. The bathroom was clean. We had two queen beds that were comfortable, though the mattress was a little firm for my taste. We had to ask for additional shampoo as the bottles we had were so small. We found one roach dead on the floor. The cleaning staff apologized for it and handled it quickly. The outdoor pool seemed smaller than expected but we didn't swim there as we spent the time at the beach. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and would go back.
Very clean and neat. Very nice staff. No congestion during breakfast. Parking was good too.. They say Kitchenette but it's a full kitchen- great value for your money- For $124 a night..I will book Best Western Executive suite everytime I travel.
BW Plus is a good place to stay if working trip takes you to Corpus Christi. Only open since April it is convenient to the industrial north side of the city and only a ten minute drive from the beach front.
I booked the queen suite for my family, was best money spent. Plenty of room had small kitchen with microwave dishwasher sink stove top and dishes and silverware to use as well as paper towels. Room was very clean. Love the bathroom mirrors light up like the ones at safora. Would definitly stay at the Best Western suites again.
I Enjoyed my stay here very much. Especially how clean and very stylish the rooms are. I also enjoyed the complimentary happy hour that had free drinks from 5:30 - 7:30. The free breakfast was a plus too!
the hotel was great. brand new. staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. family friendly. would definitely recommend and stay again. close to downtown,beach,and attractions. easy to get to anything you want to do.
I was very fortunate to stay at this hotel when I did. The weather was nice, and I enjoyed a nice view of the port from the 4th floor room. The room was well set up, and very comfortable. The gym was well stocked with free weights, a weight machine and treadmills. The staff was extremely helpful, and very friendly. I had a cell phone problem, and sales manager Bailey Chambliss helped out with her charger. The manager, Rob Bhakti, was great. Sarah Guerrero provided friendly check in service and had tips on restaurants. Donell (did not get her last name) was very good in the breakfast area. A great stay all around.
Reserved room using TripAdvisor partner Booking.com and paid them $300. received confirmation email. Showed up to hotel (800 miles from home) and no reservation in their system. Called booking.com who apologized for their "computer outage" after 30 minutes on hold. They contacted hotel who had rooms available but Booking.com refused to pay what the hotel was asking and wanted me to pay the difference! Warning: NEVER, EVER BOOK THRU TRIPADVISER OR BOOKING.COM!
Brand new place had all the amenities well maintained.Small Kitchen was a surprise. Staffs here are so courteous.Gym was very well equipped. Kids love this place.It's a great value for money.Kudos to all the service staff to making it a memorable trip.
So glad I took a chance and picked this hotel!! The rooms were spacious, bathroom was amazing, the bed was comfortable, the hotel itself was modern, new and clean. The staff were very friendly. Everyone greeted you when they walked by and were cheerful. It is on the outskirts of town, but considering the amounts that everyone charges to be close to the beach, this hotel was worth it. If you're headed to beach, you have to drive through town to get there, so take the opportunity to stop and grab whatever you need on the way back in (their is a Walmart on the way to Mustang Island off 358 at Flour Bluff Dr that's open 24 hours)
This is an excellent property! Brand new and staff goes out of their way to take care of you! We will definitely visit this location again. We were on our way to South Padre and decided to break the trip up. So glad we did or we would have never discovered this Best Western.
Stayed for 2 nights for a family graduation. The bed were so comfortable!! A++. Will definitely stay when I'm in town again. Great access to highway and no more that 10 minute drive to beach. Loved the breakfast!
This was my first time in Corpus Christi and this hotel was stellar. It's brand new and it's run as smooth as silk. All of the staff members treated me with respect and they were always polite. The rate I paid was reasonable. My room was big and spacious and clean. The bed was super comfortable. And the hotel is easily accessible I-37 at Exit 10 if you're going north, via the frontage road, and Exit 11A if you're going south. It was worth every penny. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in town
We Had a 2 day USTA tourney so we booked 2 nights. We will stay here again and again! The building is a clean line design from the outside & plenty of parking. The coastal decor meets you in the lobby, where the seating area & breakfast accommodations are joined together in a massive area surrounded by two story windows. We got a Third floor room, 2 adults 1 teen, 2 queen beds. Our nephew thought we were at the Hamptons! The room is spacious, with a steel fridge & microwave, big Samsung Flat screen in the middle, 3 long drawers for clothes and a nice seating area at the end of the room. The desk is bigger than most with a comfortable chair, desk lamps, and numerous wall plugs everywhere. He used as gaming area, with his PC. The alarm clock has a Qi pad for wireless charging for Apple or Samsung phone. Next to the beds are lights and 2 reading lights. The mattresses were soo comfortable, higher end, not a basic model. The wall to wall lighting in the bathroom is amazing! I want it for my house. You can control your AC temperature as well. Shower is high, pressure was great, 2 speed shower head and sliding glass doors. Breakfast had eggs, bacon, waffles, cereal, yogurts, breads, oatmeal for sure! The workout area is spacious with one of everything. We booked through Orbitz and got $15 dollar credit for next time!
OMG! If you are traveling to Corpus Christi, you must stay at this new hotel! It's beyond beautiful! It's modern, clean and they have large TV's in the rooms! They didn't cut corners when building this hotel! I will continue to stay at this property when I travel to Corpus! Rob the GM and the staff are wonderful! Keep up the great work!
We found a room here the day after the hotel opened. It is located close to the beginning of Corpus by the plants. It is beautiful and super modern. Smelled so good being brand new. The room was awesome. King bed very comfortable. Bathroom has walk in shower - no tub. Bath towels were super soft. There was also a mini kitchen in the room. Super large Samsung TV made viewing easy from the bed. Great outside sitting area. We loved our stay there. Breakfast was the normal fare. The only thing that I would say negative was the bedspread was a bit scratchy for me. But overall, I loved this hotel and would definitely stay again.
