Located directly across the street from the ocean waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the Knights Inn Ocean Drive/Corpus Christi is a quaint hotel offering the best location in the town - just minutes from downtown Corpus Christi, Texas A & M University, Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, the Army Depot, and three miles from McGee Beach, five miles from Corpus Christi Beach and ten miles from Padre Island. 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. Just step outside to view the natural beauty of the ocean, get some sun at the hotel pool, and then eat your lunch at our shaded picnic tables. Every single guestroom at the Knights Inn Ocean Drive/Corpus Christi has a microwave and mini-fridge, free local calls, free color cable television and free wireless high speed internet access. This interior corridor hotel also offers a free continental breakfast plus free and plentiful parking. Train memorabilia and model trains are located in the main lobby and the breakfast room for our guests to enjoy. American Bank Convention Center is only 4 miles away and within ten to fifteen minutes you can visit Padre Island National Seashore, Mustang Island State Park, Bob Hall Pier, Bird Island Basin, Packery Channel, and J.P. Luby Park. You can surf, boat, fish, kayak, walk the trails, stroll the beach, view nesting turtles, bicycle, bird watch, or lay out on the sand and catch some rays. Ocean Drive turns into Shoreline Drive and within minutes you can take a trip on a sightseeing boat, a fishing boat, enjoy the skate park or rent a bicycle cart for four. Close by, our guests can participate in a full game of golf and restaurant venues surround the area. The Knights Inn Ocean Drive/Corpus Christi can provide you, your family and your group with some of the best rates in town, and by the way, the memories are free. Don't just stay at another

Never Again Staying Here!

I'm not a hard pleaser, I have stayed in other economical motels and hotels other times but, none like this one. When we first got there I saw nothing wrong but when bedtime came that's when it all changed. There were BED BUGS all over the cover. The next morning when I got up I had little bites all over and they itched like crazy. Since it was spring break, we had no other choice than to stay there another night. That night, my husband noticed them in the restroom and on the wall near a sofa, just to make matters worse. We had to sleep with no covers. I did report it to the manager on duty and although he was super sweet and nice and even offered to give us a discount on our next stay, I'm afraid there won't be another stay.

Very disappointed

The ad picture looks better than the actual motel does. The parking lot was terrible and not well lit. The pool was dirty and had not been clean in some time. The room was not very clean. The bathroom did not have any bath towels, we had to go get them from the front desk. The bathroom light looked as if it had been replaced improperly. I was scared to think there was a hidden camera up there..very CREEPY. Will not stay at ANY Knights Inn again nor would I recommend it to anyone! Not a pleasant night at all!!!

DISAPPOINTED

The hotel was in a great location, easy drive to TAMUCC and area beaches. Specifically searched for hotel with a pool, but when we arrived, a sign was posted apologizing for the pool being closed. We asked the manager about the pool and he said that renovations were under way and a new pool would be in by next week(does not help me this week.) Looked at the empty pool, no work going on, does not look like it will ever be open. The room was nice and large with two queen beds, so comfortably slept four. My daughter complained about the smell-it did smell musty. The bathroom had black streaks running down the wall like in the ceiling was some mold. The staff was really nice, kind of made up for the other disappointing aspects.

Not so nice hotel!

Was looking for a beachside hotel; this one advertised as 'on the ocean'. The ocean was across the street but the beach was 3 miles away and low and behold there was another Knights Inn and it WAS on the beach and much cleaner. Ours was old and dirty, there also was so much moisture the carpet was wet and I mean wet the whole time and our sheets and bedding were constantly damp. The pool was green and disgusting and there were tall weeds around it, we obviously didn't use it. We had to ask for towels and toilet paper. They did not make the bed or even empty our trash at all during our stay. [...]
