TX vacation

Stopped at this hotel as part of our TX vacation, had a room on the 8th floor with a gorgeous view of the bay and sunset. The breakfast was good, the pool was nice, average, though I did like that it went to 8 ft deep. There was nearby construction that made it difficult to find and get to the hotel though. Room was nice and clean. And I liked the idea of the in room safe for guests to use.

Disappointed

I don't like to give poor reviews but I was disappointed with my experience. I chose this hotel thinking I was paying a little more to get a better experience. Rooms and halls need to be updated, especially the bathroom. I think part of the hotel is being renovated hopefully they get that done quickly cuz if definitely needs it. The one good thing I should point out though was the 11th floor where the breakfast room and lounge is. The staff at breakfast and the panoramic view was pretty nice.

Many attractions

One night stay (Saturday), in downtown Corpus Christi. Pro's: Nice continental breakfast included in room rate on 11th floor with great view. The room coffee maker performed well. Bikes, paddle boats and jet skis available within walking distance on seawall. Cons: small elevators

You can take a short ferry across the bay or drive over bridge to USS Lexington and Texas State Marina. Both are fun and family friendly attractions.

Just ok

Nice facility, great location and great Harbor views from any room. However, thermostat in my room was broken - fortunately this was for the AC so AC basically had only on and off selections. Additionally, housekeeping was incomplete - left part of the room uncleaned and did not rplace coffee in the room coffee service. Late one afternoon, 5-7 pm, maintainance work in adjacent room was very loud - they were sawing metal. Overall nice hotel, but noticeable issues keep it it from being great.

Business trip, no internet

I stayed for 2 days on a business trip and had no internet access. The complimentary breakfast was average at best, greasy sausage, no bacon limited fruit selection. I was moved to a new room after the first night, but still had no internet access. It was only in the lobby after I check out that I was able to access my email. This was not the cheapest hotel and I expect a minimum of service when I am on a business trip. I would probably recommend this place if they had offered me some compensation for my troubles, but they did not.
