Quick Getaway

Stayed a couple of nights just to see the Island and Corpus Christi. We chose this hotel because we travel with our dogs. The staff were very pleasant. The room was ok and could probably stand a little renovation in the near future. I didn't sleep well the first night because of other patrons (no fault of hotel) and an uncomfortable mattress. It probably should be replaced. I wish they would consider landscaping a dog area because ours wouldn't walk on the available grass due to abundant burrs and stickers. All in all, we still had a great time.

Enjoyable stay

We only stayed for one night, but the staff was extremely friendly and the location was great. The beds were comfy. Shower head was kind of broken - but I didn't mind. I'm easy to please.

BEWARE of what may hit your credit card after you leave

The stay was fine, but beware of what may hit your credit card after you leave. I recently stayed at this hotel after making a 14 hour drive pulling a boat. I was extremely tired, as you might imagine, and was only interested in a comfortable quiet place to sleep. The first thing I did after checking in was to go to a local sea food restaurant named “Doc's” and had a good meal. I returned to the hotel with going to bed as my highest priority ( I was making the return 14 hour drive the next day#. Before I went to bed I turned on the TV to check the Masters Golf Tournament scores and noticed that the TV screen was broken #I did not break it#. I thought it was pretty shoddy to have a broken TV in the room, but it came on and I saw the scores and then I turned it off and went to bed. I got up the next morning and drove home. Nothing ever crossed my mind about telling anyone about the TV because I assumed they were already aware. Bad assumption on my part! One week later we saw a charge for $500 on our credit card #in additional to the room charge#. The Best Western hotel never called to ask about the TV. They just charged my card #which is scary in itself)! After calling and talking with someone at the hotel, I called Best Western Customer Care and related the story to a very nice representative. She said she would check into it and we would hear something in about 7 days. We received a call from the hotel manager with an explanation of how their “procedures” work for inspecting the room and implied that it was fine when I checked in, but that they were going to refund the $500 and that it would take about three weeks. Well three weeks passed with no refund. I called Best Western Customer Care again and talked to a different representative who was less nice, but still business like. I was told that I signed a statement saying I was responsible for damages. Does anyone read the fine print on a check in card? I was informed that the manger had denied our refund, and that was the end of the story. The story is not over because I have gotten our credit card company involved, so we will see. I am a 63 year old retired businessman and belong to several hotel, airline and rental car frequent traveler programs. I have traveled extensively over the last 40 years and this is the first time something like this has happened. If you stay here DON'T use a credit card because if the toilet quits working you might get a charge for a plumber!

Suprised

I was very disappointed with our stay at this Best Western. The furniture was cheap and in poor condition. The couch was so bad you could not sit on it. The air conditioning was very loud. The pool was not heated. The breakfast was substandard. Two stars would be a better rating.

Weekend at Beach

The Best Western On The Island is decent hotel. Rooms are clean but a little on the tired side. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Perfect location for beach going and bay fishing.
