South Texas' two premier attractions, the USS Lexington Aircraft Carrier Museum and the Texas State Aquarium are five minutes from the hotel and La Palmera Mall is less than 2 miles away.

Not the best

This hotel was not worth $90. The pool was out, the floor was wet when we arrived, the bathroom had a foul smell. I wasn't expecting much based off the reviews I had read and pictures I had looked at but this was just awful. Luckily we just needed a room for one night so it was a quick trip but we will not be back

Horrible experience

room was filthy, full of bed bugs all over mattress. Carpet dirty, not vacuumed,no paper cups , no coffee maker, no Kleenex. Curtains torn with big holes as well as lamp shades. two lamps not working. Before seeing room I had reserved for an additional night and when I went to cancel in morning, they told me no refunds. Supposed to have coffee and continental breakfast in lobby. Not open at 7 am. Housekeeping cart stored in kitchenette area. Please take this hotel off your referral list. I will not use this agency in the future when making reservations.

Good value

This is obviously an older property, however the management is doing a good job at maintaining the rooms, keeping all the essentials up and preserving the feeling of a great ROI for guests. Not much going on near the property, but a good "launching point" for touring Corpus Christi and enjoying the great city for much less than properties closer to downtown. Again, a good value for cost conscious travelers.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Short to medium distance drive to the downtown dining district and Corpus Christi's fantastic oyster bars. So many to select from and you won't go wrong with any; so make your choice on what you want to spend.

Rude & Never Again

The desk clerk was all smiles & friendly when you check in but once they have your money they don't seem to give a darn! They were rude unfriendly unwilling to comply with simple requests. I asked for clean towels for the a.m., clerks rude response was "they have already cleaned your room!" I said I understand that but we need cleans towels for the morning, I was then told to bring my dirty towels to him & he would give me clean ones, that was their policy. So much trouble for the whole .05 cents per towel they probably pay. Never again will I stay there or EVER recommend to anyone to stay there!!!

Bad hotel experience

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!! This is one of the worst maintained and managed hotels that I have experienced in my travels. This hotel is not clean. The staff do not care if you aren't comfortable. There are NO ammenities AT ALL. The soft drink machine was empty of all brands and one staffer said that it was hardly ever refilled, we might as well unplug it. Our room was never serviced on one day and when I complained at the desk, they gave me a bag of towels, soaps and cups to help me put thing in order myself. On returning one evening, I was met by a group of drunks drinking and blocking the back door. One afternoon several people were spralled asleep in the fron lobby by the desk. I felt extremely cheated. Shame on the Knights Inn chain for endorsing this dump.

Great place to stay and great location

We stayed three days and two nights. It is right on ocean drive which is right by the beach. There's an HEB near by for anything from groceries to aspirin. It's also about 5 mins away from the mall and various restaurants to eat. Best of all, we went to a world market which carries a little bit of everything from around the world. Over all our stay was comfy. No one bothered us, every afternoon when we would return, the room had fresh towels and was clean. The AC was crisp and clean, not like some hotels which are damp. The hotel ended up with no vacancy and even then, we weren't bothered by noise. Overall it was a great stay, and we had ZERO problems.

Great location

The hotel is right on ocean drive which is close to everything including the beach, a skate park, and an HEB. The rooms were clean, felt very crisp and even though it was booked, we could hear no noise emitting from the other people. The breakfast isn't too fancy, we got some beagles, there was three brands of cereal, and some sweet bread, milk, orange juice, and coffee.
