People really great We are treated like family Thanks

Awesome, clean, friendly, currently this review is making me mad because it is forcing me to write more!!

I liked my room, it was pretty clean and comfy. Cons, the hallways smell like cigarrette, I am pregnant so the smell was quite strong for me, the room did not smell at all though. The pest guy came opening the door in the morning being pretty disturptive, asking if we wanted pest control, I said no. I don't want poison while I am there with my three year old and me pregnant sniffing it all up.

The room was big, comfy and the continental breakfast was terrific.

Very Nice Hotel, but expensive, bad timing to travel to Corpus Christi. Breakfast was good. The beds were comfortable. But after our room was cleaned, housekeeping keep leaving the door opened with all of our belongings in the room. We notified front desk but it seemed no one cared. Normally we stay at Embassy Suites but that hotel was booked and being repaired. This hotel is a good place to stay, just make sure and notify the manager of any problems.

The Hotel was very nice and clean, but we encounterd a problem with the cleaning staff. They kept leaving the door open of our room. We had several valuable things in the room, that luckily no one took. We notified the front desk about the situation, but no one ever called us back to confirm that it would not happen again, or that they had spoke to the cleaning crew. It seemed like they didn't care. I like the hotel, but it angry's me that management doesn't assure there customers that their belongings will be safe in their room.

Had all the little things that makes a stay successful. Lots of electrical outlets to charge all my gadgets - good internet strength without the proprietary log in sites, clean room, nice pool, friendly/helpful staff. A REAL free breakfast (homemade waffles, juice, etc... not just toast) Will definitely stay here again

First time staying at a BW+.. very nice & friendly staff.

we stayed at the portland location cus it was close to a high school grad party that we were invited to, so it was close to the party but went to the texas aquariun the day after. the hotel provided everything we needed and them some. pool, hot tub, breakfast in the morning and a comfy bed, what else do you need... cable tv, it was there

Hotel was very comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Would recommend this location for all travelers.

The hotel was very nice and close to Corpus Christi and the beach

I've stayed at two other hotel/ motels in Portland and this is by far the best. Very clean and the staff was great.

Staff and Hotel were great.

The staff was great. (free) Breakfast was great, if eggs and hashbrowns were added, it would be perfect! Rooms were clean! And staff was very accomedating. Everything was location and all. The stores (Walmart & HEB) and fast food (if you want it)were right there. It would have been a perfect stay BUT..., the pool was dirty and the spa had algea, and was green. The pool had black algea and was dirty. I had asked fot it to be clean so we could swim.... the staff requested and the maint. guys showed up BOTH times and they just looked at it, smoked, and left. Very disappointing. Other than that It was great! Will do it again for sure.

Pleasant

This hotel is not located by the beach but still it's in a good location, very close to anywhere, to the Aquarium, Museums and not too far the beach, the only inconvenient is that the rooms had a very strong smell to either freshener or paint, that bother us for a little but since we used the room just to sleep it wasn?t a big deal. A big plus is the microwave and the fridge which makes very convenient to buy food for dinner or to keep left over food for a later snack.

i walk in it was about 1pm. check in was at 3pm, i ask if i was at the right hotel, he told me yes and i told him i'd be back cause check in was not till 3 he told me thats ok the room is ready and we have upgrade you to a suite i was like cool. this is one of the best best western i have stayed at.
