OMG!

While this hotel was in a great location, it left much to be desired. It smelled old and moldy, was in disrepair in many areas including the rooms, bathrooms and hallways. The tile and porcelain was chipped and there was no central air. The room was either too cold or too hot and damp. There were not enough staff to handle the cleaning, calls and emergencies and there was a shortage of pillows, towels and irons. The restaurant, gym and dining areas were under renovation and the entire building was dirty.

Needs work

This hotel was built in 1912, and didn't seem to have been maintained since. The room was musty. The bathroom ceiling and walls were collapsing into the room. The iron was missing, but was replaced with a call to the desk. The evening desk clerk was extremely polite and helpful, as were the ladies working the breakfast bar. The building needs significant renovation before it is suitable for use as a hotel. The pictures online are either extremely old or have been retouched. We checked out after one night and found another hotel.

Great location under renovations

Heavy renovations and name changes from building, front doors etc. We and other guests had to inquire if this was indeed 601 N. Waters and was the Bayfront Plaza Hotel. Door said Bayfront Corpus Christi Hotel. Many areas not finished - no appologies from the clerk and TV remote that had to be changed twice (which they did). Toilet was "seated" with knees angled toward the wall making it very difficult to sit. All else ok.

Could have been beter

The first room they gave me was hot, stinky and dirty. The bath tub was nasty. I requested another room and wound up paying another $46 to get an upgrade. The new room had a nice view but the air conditioner would not get cool. The hallways and elevator were dirty. I will never stay here again.

The worst stay ever

They Had to move my Daughter three times due to roaches in room.my room was right inside the pool area and above the bar that had a live band playing until 3:00am.I guess the parents were at the bar and a team of kids at the pool. my grandkids even complained about the smell of mildew ages three and five if I would have had the extra money I would have left and stayed some where else but I had already been charged.I will never use Orbits again.first and last time

My mystical journey

The parking garage was trashy. The glass door to the hotel from the parking garage was cracked. It looked like a good breeze would complete the job and broken glass would have been all over the floor. The interior hallways were trashy. The room was clean, and that is the best thing I can say about that. When we arrived to the room, it was very warm, not uncommon for south Texas. I immediately lowered the AC to it's coolest. After a while, (approximately 6 hrs) it had cooled off some, but not nearly enough. Let's just say we did not need any covers while we slept. The bed was comfortable, but with the heat, sleeping was not easy. The AC would have intermittent periods of shutting completely off. A period might last five seconds to five minutes. When we returned from eating supper, it sounded like the Irish Pub had moved into the center of the first floor. With the open atrium, and our room on the second floor, we had no problem hearing the music. We just couldn't hear each other talk, without raising our voices The toilet seemed like it had a mind of it's own. One time you flush and it worked, another time you flush and it would backup, almost to the rim, and then drain normal. I am six foot tall. The pipe for the showerhead came out of the wall at about the equal heighth of my shoulders. With the downward angle of pipe coming out of the wall, the highest I could get the water to spray me, without stooping over, was my abdomen. It was a perfect kid's shower, but I am no kid. When my wife showered, she said she had to stand next to the wall where the showerhead was to get wet due to lack of water pressure. Since she is only 5'2", she didn't have to stoop as low as I.

Great Location

This was an excellent hotel for the price. I was attending a hair style show at the convention center. This was within walking distance for me. I would highly recommend it. I also enjoyed the little shops that were located in the hotel.

Not the Best...but worth it

Ok...so the hotel is a little old, and it shows it's age. But this is where you go to escape. I went for Spring break with a friend and we had a great view of the bay. The staff was very polite and knowledgeable of everything in town. Nicely centralized to everything you could want to do in corpus and within in waling distance to just about everything. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

My review of Bayfront Plaza Hotel

My husband claimed that the water kept changing from hot to cold in the middle of his showers. I didn't experience that. The girl at the front desk was moody at times. Our stay wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst believe me I've had worse. We weny for my Cousin's wedding and the ballroom was beautiful. I believe that we would give it another try :-)
