    « Rooms smell »

    Our room smelled like wet carpet. Strong mold smell! horrible!!! Pretty sure it was coming from the AC unit in the room. Beds weren't the best. Breakfast was great! Pool was great for the kids. Lobby smelled like an ashtray, probably because people are allowed to smoke at the main entrance. Pets are allowed, but the leash rule should be enforced. If you have breathing problems I would not recommend staying here.

    « Great stay! »

    This is one of my favorite places to stay. I love the aquarium in the clean and inviting lobby! The staff is wonderful, Everyone is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is outstanding, and the rooms are very clean and well maintained. I stay there every time I go to the Corpus Christi area.

    « Another Great Stay! »

    I travel a lot with my business and when I find a great hotel - I stay with it. This is my 5th time staying at the Best Western Plus in Portland. And I have to say, nothing has changed. Same friendly staff - great service - clean room - and wonderful breakfast. The Owner Ed lives on the property and oversees things very well. It is nice to see things done right!

    « Very Nice!! »

    After staying at a horrible hotel in Refugio this was a great welcome surprise. The staff was very friendly. The beds were comfortable. They even helped me get a couple loads of free laundry done. Breakfast was amazing. If I ever come back I will be staying here.

    « Disappointing »

    Pro: On the positive side, the staff was, on the whole, friendly; my room was clean and had a refrigerator, coffeemaker, microwave oven, and a TV with a decent selection of cable channels; and the parking was free, in the hotel's parking lot. Cons: Upon arrival, the hotel smelled heavily of disinfectant/bleach, and my room, although clean, had a musty smell. One of the hotel attendants said the odor was, perhaps, attributable to the hotel being located near the ocean, a statement I question because other establishments in the area did not smell musty like the Northshore Inn. Also, although breakfast was included with the room price, on both occasions that I had the breakfast it was extremely disappointing. The scrambled eggs were dried out and, on each occasion. there was hardly any meat (bacon/sausage) or potatoes left. Perhaps the staff would have provided more upon request, but because I experienced this shortage two days in a row I can only attribute it to a lack of caring on the part of the staff. The walls of the rooms were thin, and you could hear noise from other rooms and the outside traffic from inside your room. Also, the hotel is located on an access road to Rte. 35, but it is not convenient to get to (you have to backtrack from Rte. 35 to the service road to reach the hotel). If I were to revisit the area, I would not stay here again.

    « Very pleasant stay »

    Nice hotel. Helpful staff. Clean facilities, rooms, and amenities. Comfortable beds. Decent breakfast (but they needed picante salsa ;-) ). All in all I will definitely stay at this hotel next time in town!

    « Rockport Film Festival »

    One of the few places that had rooms open for the Rockport Film Festival, post Harvey. All and all it worked out, and was only 30mins away from Rockport. Hoping to make it back to the area before long.

    « Great value and location »

    I loved my stay. Great breakfast! They actually use real eggs! Was shocked and pleasantly surprised. Friendly staff. Overnight staff was great also. Asked for late night snack: cereal. She didn't hesitate to get us what we needed.

    « Nice room »

    It was a nice room with several restaurants close by. Staff was friendly. Bed was not very comfortable so we didn't sleep well. Breakfast was ok, good variety. Eggs seemed bland & bacon thin but there were other options there.

    « Road Trip »

    Hotel was in a good location, rooms comfortable and management and staff were amazing..we felt like family. pool was nice, breakfast good. close to shopping, resturants and beach. would stay there again. I want to say thanks again to Maria and Diana for making our stay enjoyable.

    « Trip to Texas »

    The hotel was clean but it definitely needs some updating. The staff were very nice and the food at breakfast was good. Although it appeared that the amount of food prepared could have been more. Overall stay was good.

    « Great comfortable hotel »

    If you want a comfortable hotel room with good options this Best Western Plus is the place to be. Its location is not far from the beach and the hotel staff is nice. The walls are thick so you won't have to worry about noise.

    « Great quality »

    This place was better-than-expected all the reviews were right the pool was amazing the breakfast was right on and the sleep was so great we didn't even want to wake up in the morning it's conveniently located next to a Walmart not that far away from an HEB and it's easy to get to Port A or Corpus

    « Decent place to stay »

    Not quite of the the same standards as most Best Western hotels. Considering the location and price, it is a decent place to stay. Smaller hotel, the room I stayed in is about ready for an update, at least new carpet. Plenty of parking, 15 minutes from downtown Corpus.

    « great place to stop over »

    walls were a little thin- could hear people talking in other rooms, but the hotel was clean, roomy guest room with sofa. and desk/work area. free guest laundry! staff was very friendly. gave us some great info on local beach access,etc. breakfast was fresh and ready each morning.

    « Clean »

    Very clean and relaxing. The pool was clean and there is free laundry. It is pet friendly as well. Staff are very friendly. Close to Port Aransas and Corpus Christi metro. I will be staying here again.

    « good stay »

    clean place with a great pool. great location compared to Corpus. breakfast is over very promptly at 10am and there is a shortage of parking around 9:00pm. Booked early as possible and i am sure the rates would be way better. wait until the last minute and they are average at best. overall it was a nice stay.

    « Quick Stay »

    We went in for the night, requested an early check in and as soon as I got there, my room was ready. The staff was very nice and attentive. Parking lot seemed a bit small. Luckily we came home late enough and found a parking spot. We set the air to 68 but it never got that cool. The room was a comfortable size.

    « The little fridgerator could of been more colder. »

    Clean ,friendly ,peaceful place nice pool good breakfast the ac was perfect location access serval store and restrants parking was kind of tight from what I can tell you this is one of the Best Western I stayed at.

    « Good Hotel »

    Staff are always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is consistently good and has real food not heat up everything. Pool and grounds are kept up and is a good location as far as distance from things to do without being in an extremely busy area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Not an overly "showy" hotel but priced well and very nice for the price.

    « Caring Attitude Of Staff »

    This Best Western deserves 5 star rating. I have stayed all around the world but this hotel was the best hotel ever. All the employees from the front desk to housekeeping department deserves a pat on the back. Managment of the hotel was very careful as well. I will definitely stay here again and will recommend to everyone.

    « Want stay here ever again!!!! »

    Checked in with wet sheets and blanket on both of our room beds. Booked 2 queen bed rooms Ask to be changed as we where leaving came back still wet and roaches everywhere and in the bed grossed us out

    « Close but not to close »

    This BW has a very caring staff, even the housecleaning staff are nice. But what makes this BW Plus really nice is that it's close to Corpus but not having to pay the price to be in Corpus and close enough where you can spend the day at the beach in Port Aransas or a fishing trip to Rockport/Fulton. All the rooms are nice but try and get a suite. Breakfast is ok, could have a few more selections considering this is a BW Plus but the staff are great and very helpful.

    « Best services »

    The staff went out of their way to get us a room and to make our stay enjoyable, even when our reservations fell to reach the hotel. They were helpful, cheerful and everyone I met was always smiling . The breakfast that I had,was not your ordinary continental breakfast but the usual breakfast items were available. I had a Mexican casserole that was made from scratch and it sure was good. When I went to check out my reservation that I had made from the company web site had not been received and the hotel manager was on the phone with the corporate office for eternity, resolving the issue. The rooms were quite. even with the hi-way very close by, you heard very little traffic noise. Maybe I was extremely tired but I think I woke up in the same position that I was in when I went to sleep. This hotel and staff turned a possible bad stay into a good stay. For this they deserve a pat on the back. If you're traveling through the area and need a reasonable place to stay just drop in and you want be disappointed.

    « AWESOME »

    Rooms very clean. Beds were awesome firm and comfortable. The lady (forgot her name, sorry) that prepares the breakfast and oversees the area was fantastic. The breakfast eggs, biscuits and gravy were prepared with love. We had no complaints. Very good experience considering it was not a high end hotel. If we visit the area again, will stay there again. Thank you.

    « Not what it used to be »

    this is our second stay here , the first time was an extended stay while we were between homes . They allow dogs , and it is very convenient and extremely clean and the faces are all familiar and friendly , but the food is not up to par. It seems that the long time staff has become complacent and just cant be bothered with the breakfast area...there is no bread or jelly , no yoghurt..the potatoes were mushy and oily , the eggs were sloppy and the bacon out of the microwave....very dissapointing compared to our first stay here....not even chips and dip for happy hour anymore.

    « Great room »

    Lovely room, comfortable and clean. Quick service in the lobby. Didn't try the breakfast but dining area looked well stocked, clean and organized. Would definitely consider staying at this location again in the future.

    « Was amazing »

    Best rooms in town had everything very clean the bathrooms and tubs were amazing a large room and big mirror is a must and good lighting that what my husband like big bed with a lots of pillow..........

    « Review of hotel »

    great Hotel, a bit pricy, but I also know its spring break and the prices always go up during the holiday. But I take my kids there each year and its nice to just get away. the staff are always friendly and very helpful

    Nice hotel and extremely helpful staff. All staff members will go out of their way to assist in anything needed. Hotel was very clean. Rooms were nice and cleaning crew was very punctual making sure rooms needs were taken care of right away.

    « Excellent Place/With Great Food and Customer Service »

    My room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The Happy Hour has a nice variety of beer and excellent food. The food at breakfast is fresh and delicious . This is a GREAT place to stay.... I highly recommend!

    « Amazing Property/AND STAFF »

    I HIGHLY Recommend this property! I have referred people to stay there also and everyone has given a 5 star and if more they would! Great Staff and very modern property! Ed and Kaitlyn go above and beyond for every person that steps foot on this property!

    « Bad check in »

    Upon arrival, the girl did not acknowledge my diamond level. When we got to our assigned room, it was not an ADA room as requested. So back down to the lobby where a young man took over, an re-assigned an ADA room. We then had to move to another room with no offer to assist us. The girl was playing with a nasty dog behind the front desk, not to welcomeing at checkin, rather distasteful.

    « Great Place to Stay »

    I have stayed at the Portland location many times and it is always great. I have brought grandchildren and family. It is close to shopping and great for fishing trips. This location is always very clean and everyone is very helpful.

    « BW »

    This is the best Best Western I have stayed in all the other ones were dumps.Nasty smell lots of domestic violence and loud noise in parking lot. This one is very clean and organized. The staff is very nice and always asking good morning evening,

    « get away overnite »

    excellent location close to beach and bayfront; quite and great pool; not far from local shopping malls and problem finding it, right over the beautiful harbor bridge and near lexington

    « Friendly Staff, Great Atmosphere »

    The hotel staff made us feel right at home with their great attitudes and friendliness. The breakfast was delicous, and the lady working the breakfast bar was beyond nice. She gave us excellent service.

    « Stay with Fido »

    Made a trip to visit the fam in Ingleside/Fulton and this is by far the best option if you are bringing your pet. Since our family was in Fulton/Rockport area and we knew we were going to be in CC proper for dinner at least one night this location worked out extremely well. Even met the owner Ed while walking my yorkie and found out he decided to allow pets b/c he has dogs himself and knows it is hard to find places to take them. Front desk staff were very helpful with recommendations and allowing us to check in early. Breakfast was decent but realize you get what you pay for. If you want fancy go stay at the omni, if you want functional this is the place for you

    « Nice »

    We stayed her the last night of our trip. This was the nicest room of our whole trip. Cookies at check in desk. Room was very nice upscale. Little extras that are not in many hotels. Free laundry room, clean comfort. Full breakfast. Pool, hot tub. It's right off hwy but we didn't hear a thing. Decor is very nice. Even the elevator was golden. Front desk lady was very nice and very willing to help you with anything you might need. Just a great stay. If we are ever in the area I would go there in a heart beat.

    « Excellent place to stay »

    My wife, daughter, and I stayed for a couple of days. We had no expectations but were blown away. The hotel is just a few miles from the Corpus Christi Aquarium but it is an easy few miles and there are plenty of shopping and dining places nearby. The front dest staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The breakfast was standard hotel breakfast, but was plentiful and very good. We have stayed at the Marriott, the Hilton, and the W, and this hotel is every bit as good as any of them. We will definitely be returning as our "go to" hotel when we visit Corpus Christi.

    « Great deal for a Holiday Weekend »

    The staff was nice but no one stood out. The Pool was clean and everyone was enjoying it with out any problems. ROOM - There was an an alcoholic beverage left in the refrigerator, from the guest before us. I would have thought that the cleaning staff would have cleaned that out by the next guest. That was surprising. But other than that the room was clean. I totally forgot to report this. The blow dryer in the bathroom did not work, once you picked it up something inside it made a funny noise. I did report that to the front desk, as we checked out. BREAKFAST -During breakfast they had hot chocolate. Yum, so I pumped some hot water from the carafe, where the sign stated "Hot Water". Mixed my chocolate mix into the cup took a drink only to discover it was regular temperature water. It was disappointing but not that big of a deal.

    « Best of the Best »

    If you are needing a hotel in the Corpus Christi area, the Best Western Plus Northshore Inn is by far superior to all others. The location is close to restaurants and the beach and the staff and facilities are top notch.

    « service »

    great customer service, pleasant stay, decent breakfast, only bad thing was the internet connection, maybe just a bad service day. Place was very clean but had an old smell to the place although my wife said it smelled new so that could just be a matte of opinion to others.

    « Great Extended Stay »

    Excellent service, friendly and helpful. Entire staff was always attentive and made my stay extremely comfortable. Made me feel at home and welcomed. This was my first time to travel for business and thanks to the staff that made me at ease and safe.

    « Family trip to the coast. »

    The breakfast there was A+, and so was the staff. Our room was quiet and clean. It was a nice trip,a the room was great. I would recommend this Best Western Motel to anyone. It was very nice. Great location too.

    « Went way over the call of duty »

    The woman at the counter went way over and above the call of duty to correct MY mistake. I wanted to check out a day early and gave them last minute notice. She talked with her manager and told me that if they could sell the room I wouldn't be charged the extra night. She called me a couple of hours later and said that they sold the room and I wouldn't be charged. Honest and Conscientious staff. I have NEVER had a bad experience with Best Western.

    « Its not as good as a plus should be »

    Working at a Best Western I know all the qualifications to be a plus. If this is suppose to be a plus then the standard BW that I work at should be a Premium.. Was told I couldn't use my points for a free nights stay unless I book saying I want to. We got put into a Handicap room. Which made showering a task because there was no drain outside the shower but that's where the water went.

    « business meeting »

    great place to stay, convenient, clean, and staff very nice ! easy access on and off highway. I would highly recommend to anyone travel in this area, close to Port Aransas, Mustang Island is not far and Rockport has several nice places to eat.

    « Easy access, clean and quiet?.. »

    This Best Western Plus had very easy access was super clean and was very quiet, which provided for a great nights rest. I usually do not provide reviews after surveys, but felt compelled to share this because if you are trying to decide where to stay in Portland Texas?you cannot lose with this hotel?

    « This is THE place to stay »

    From the outside, this hotel appears as any other does... accommodating for whatever your travel needs require. We were a traveling family of 4 with young children and the hotel was a great choice for the value and service we received. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and easy to work with. The hotel is clean and offers many things other hotels do not, including a fitness center, a business center and a hot breakfast served every morning for extremely convenient hours of 6am-10am. This hotel ALSO offers free washer and dryer for guests to use at their convenience. Overall for what we paid, the value was definitely there. I would definitely recommend.

    « Very Nice »

    Really Comfortable for any kind of stay.I was enjoyed every day of my stay.I am strongly prefer this hotel . because service and comfort will be same as the hotel name. No disappointments. Looking forward for my next stay.

    « Excellent »

    Saw the reviews on this hotel before booking and they weren't wrong! Great hotel, large clean rooms with a separate "living area", comfortable bed, great breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff! Also right in the middle of the shopping and restaurant area. Can't go wrong staying here!

    « Visiting Padre Island »

    Best Western Plus in Portland, TX was a nice place to stay. Corpus Christi and Padre Island are very busy places, so if you don't mind staying a little further away and driving you can avoid the crowds and relax. I would recommend this place to anyone, but try to stay on the top floor to avoid loud walkers above you.

    « nice tropical feel »

    This hotel is a great place to stay but lacking in restaurants within walkiing distance. The ones that are close are very good. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is better than average. Happy hour is a nice touch. Quiet for the most part.

    « Great Stop in Portland, Texas »

    The Best Western Plus Northshore Inn, Portland, Texas is a very good choice/option for an overnight stay. My most recent stay was up to their usual accommodating standards. I was greeted by a cheerful check-in clerk. She acknowledged my Best Western Rewards status and was very knowledgeable when it came to processing my rewards certificates. I had a very clean, comfortable room and made sure I attended the hotel happy hour which included snacks and beverages. The hotel is in close proximity to a movie theater so I took in a show. I will make a point to check-in to the Northshore Inn the next time business carries me there.

    « Great hotel near Country Club »

    Stayed here for one evening while attending a wedding. Staff was polite, room was clean and neatly presented, and generally a pleasant establishment. The only thing was the bed was a little too firm for my comfort and parking in the evening was a little packed. Other than that, a wonderful stay.

    « Newer Hotel in Portland »

    Great stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice and large. Nearby Restaurants and close to Corpus Christi. Great for extended stay with large fridge, cook top and free washer & dryer available

    « Nice Comfortable Room »

    Overall this was a nice place to stay and one of my first picks for availability. Unfortunately there is only a very limited number of rooms that you can smoke in and I don't spend my money where I can't enjoy my comfort. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and efficient, and the location is near where my frequent job sites are located.

    « Nice »

    Nice people great room, good coffee, hot shower, breakfast-good, great price, boss loved price. Truck parking, very, very important. Need more hotels with this important amenity. We as truck drivers, need a nice place to rest and get a good cup.

    « Superb Experience »

    Outstanding stay from the friendly staff to homemade breakfast that included fresh eggs versus other hotels that use powder or frozen eggs. The hotel throughout was very clean and the room was most comfortable. I will most definitely stay here again.

    « Dog friendly, welcoming staff »

    Dog friendly impacts our travel in our home state, Texas, as we like to bring our small dog with us. We have family nearby and have stayed here before. A full breakfast, including protein, is also important. Two staff, Maria, who helped with breakfast, and Rashni, who is still helping us get credit for the booking, went out of their way for us. All staff were pleasant and helpful. We will stay here again and will tell others. Thanks!

    « Visitation »

    We visit my grandson once a month and this is the best hotel I have found in the area. We had a minor issue with the sofa bed but the problem was addressed immediately and we could not have asked for anything more from the staff.

    « Great Value »

    I enjoyed staying at the Best Western Plus in Portland. It was very comfortable. The most noticeable difference about this hotel is the cleanliness. When you walk into your room, the room is extremely clean and smells fresh. (You would think this is a given, but I've stayed at many upper-tier hotels where this is not the case.) I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Portland. It's great value!


    All of the staff, from the front desk to the housekeeping, showed professionalism in a very positive and upbeat manner. Breakfast is phenomenal. Parking is adequate. Awesome pillows. Best Washer and Dryer use price. Happy Hour makes me happy. Less than a mile from Walmart, Academy, liquor store and movie theater and Starbucks. Walking distance to Restaurant and convenience store. Rajni is an awesome front desk clerk. Make sure you see her if you stay. Your dog can come too.

    « business trip »

    The staff and Management were all very pleasant and the place is very clean and comfortable Ask them and they will do everything in their power to help The housekeeping staff don't skimp on the clean and supplies for room are more than you would expect I was very comfortable staying with them This was my third trip there and was as nice as the first Will be booking there any time I'm in the area much nicer place than anywhere I stayed in Corpus Christi only 5 to 10 minutes from everything Not water front but I CAN BE AT THE WATER IN LESS THAN 5 MIN And comfortable when I get to the room

    Good experience. Comfortable king sized bed. Friendly staff and well furnished room. I would have expected a little bit better breakfast for a Best Western Plus, but overall good experience. Will come back

    « We were SO pleased! »

    The owners and staff were SO friendly, we felt as if we were friends instead of guests, the rate was very fair and the breakfast food was delicious. We were extremely satisfied in all aspects of our stay!

    « Vacation »

    I personally do not have much of anything bad to say about this hotel. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It was quiet. The bed was OK. Had a couple of crickets in the room, and I really hate them things! The continental breakfast was really nice. Wish there was a hot tub! All in all, a really nice place to stay. Easy to get to as well : )

    « Best Western Plus Rocks! »

    Yes! Yes! Highly recommend this Best Western Plus. Service was excellent. Our room was lovely and EVERYTHING WORKED! Either new or recently renovated, the decor was tasteful, restful and oh so comfy. The usual warm, chewy cookies were there right on time and then they surprised us with "happy hour" treats and beverages. To top it off...a new popcorn machine! This location is an easy in and out from HWY 181 and so close to the water. All in all, a great place to stay.

    « A BIG PLUS »

    The owner and staff always try to accommodate our needs. Breakfast is awesome! Each morning they serve a variety of foods that include homemade salsa to spice up your scrambled eggs and fried potatoes. We highly recommend the entire experience of our stay.

    « Travel »

    Excellent hospitality !! From the lady at the front desk everybody was very helpful to make our stay Enjoyable they were very accommodating. If I am ever in the area again I would certainly make a Nother reservation.

    « Class Reunion »

    Room was spacious with kitchenette and desk space. Very clean and friendly people. Easy to find with great eating places near. Traffic was very noisy on service road all night. IHOP is across the interstate.

    « Both business and vacation combined. »

    Excellent service by all the staff. I really like the morning breadfast service. The room was very clean and always made up each afternoon. I have stayed at this same motel on several visits to Corpus Christi and it has always been an enjoyable experience thanks to the staff and management.

    « Service »

    Staff was very friendly and helpful. I especially liked the breakfasts - fresh eggs, bacon, potatoes and biscuits - not the usual microwaved egg patties you get at other hotels. Evening happy hour that varies every day.

    I stayed over the weekend with my 2 daughters and the hotel was quiet and peaceful. The rooms were very clean and the beds super comfortable. Breakfast was great and the service on point. I will continue staying at this hotel on my trips to Corpus Christi.

    « Very helpful and friendly! »

    I was looking for a hotel in Portland, TX because I needed to do some work in Ingleside, the problem was that no hotel in Portland accepts the Corporate Lodging card, they went out of their way to help, they set up a Corporate Lodging account just for me! guys are awesome!

    « Nice room, breakfast just ok »

    The room overall was nice. The beds were very bouncy and I woke up with a backache each day. The shower is very slippery. There needs to be more regular tables available in the dining room. I have a 3 year old and both days we had to sit at the high table because that was all that was open. It was fine just very nerve wracking as a parent.

    « Awesome place to stay. »

    Very clean. Had daily breakfast. No complaints. The one thing is I could never find front desk staff at the front desk. I had to always look for them. The room was bigger than I expected. The swimming pool was great for the kiddos.

    « One of the best hotels we've ever stayed at »

    I think the title of the review says it all. Great people, wonderful staff. Everyone made us feel like we belonged there, and have on every stay. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for lodging in the Corpus Christi/North beach area. It beats the Radisson and Quality Inn across the bridge by a LONG shot, and is less expensive. I'm not the only one to discover this, so book your room early.
