Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was affected by hurricane Harvey days prior to our stay and instead of refunding our money for our anniversary weekend they refused to Give any refund.

Our room was ok, however the overall hotel condition is a little worn out. There is a pool bar however it's really shabby.... and everyone at it smokes!!! The elevator broke at night and we were forced to walk up 5 stories to get to their room. We were supposed to stay For 2 nights, but left after just one and was not even providdd a refund.... The better hotel at the beach is the Holiday Inn express which is a new hotel, but unfortunately it was booked. We just ended up driving and staying in downtown Corpus 25min away... which was very nice

This is a side facing hotel so most rooms have "Ocean View". There are six floors and two elevators (for guests). So, during peak season, there are long lines by the elevators. The onsite restaurant was undergoing renovation so they converted a banquet hall into a makeshift restaurant. The service at the restaurant was super slow but food was ok (we had breakfast the first day and never after). If you book at this hotel using Orbitz or any site other than IHG, you will not earn any reward points. Sadly, this is IHGs policy. The only +ve is the beach. Very soft brown sand but water is not the aqua blue that you see at the Panama City Beach (FL). Kids will love the shallow water with tides good for boogie boarding. However, these activities can be done on any beach a few miles north/south.

I enjoyed my stay a lot. My room for as newly renovated and had a partial ocean view. The stay would be much more enjoyable if pool renovation would be completed. Overall it was good pick for the value.

I booked a king size bed, ocean view with swimming pool and good restaurant, nothing happend, I got a double bed instead, no ocean view and the the toilet it was terrible duty, the restaurant was bad and expensive, the swimming pool is too little, I think the price that I paid it was too much, not breakfast included, nothing, we are planning to never come back to this hotel too expensive! !

We liked the hotel because it was close to the beach, but service was not pleasing at all, room had only decaf coffee and we called the reception asking about coffee, well the answer in short was like "Too bad", they didn't even offer a coffee from the lobby.

This was our first time to this hotel in North Padre and we were pleasantly surprised. Front desk was very nice and gave us a room with an ocean view. Room was clean, A/C worked well, live music at outdoor bar & pool area. They had 2 pools & spa that were clean and looked well maintained. They were still in the final stages of renovations which were very pretty and had that beach feel to enhance your relaxation with beautiful ocean colors. We chose this hotel because it was right on the beach but still close enough to the TAMU-CC campus. We were there for Freshmen Orientation and a beach vacation for the whole family. Great place, we will be back!

The hotel staff went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. They made sure we had ajoining rooms and answered every question we had about the hotel and surrounding activities. We will definitely stay at Holuday Inn Corpus again. We had a blast!!!

The hotel was just as you would expect. It's clean with a constantly working staff. Proximity to the beach is a definite plus. Pools are nice after a day in the ocean. We'll be back for sure.

Rooms were ok, nothing fancy but clean. No free breakfast and the restaurant was pricy so we didn't eat there. The pools are great especially for younger kids because they are small. There is a 1ft deep pool too for the little kids. The bar and music at night was fun for kids and adults. Great location close to delicious restaurants and the hotel is right on the beach. I can't wait to go back!

We have been coming to this same hotel for 25 years. We love it! The renovations are excellent! The staff is friendly, even playful! It is always clean and well staffed. We just come here to relax, enjoy walking on the beach, swimming in the Gulf and the pools. We visit the Texas Stare Aquarium nearly every time we come her.

I am very disappointed with third party & this hotel. I reserved a room with partial ocean view & got a view of parking lot instead. Room wasn't ready when I tried to check in, had to wait then was told type of room I was getting & didn't have any rooms to upgrade either, they said not able to accommodate due to booking through a third party & hotel not responsible for type of room I get! Hotel is old & dirty, cockroaches in the room, restaurant not open for business other than breakfast buffet, $11.95 per person with very limited choices, flys everywhere & even on food. Bar outside by pool area was only thing I was happy with (even though I didn't drink). Stayed there 3 nights, room not cleaned once, had to request towels be replaced. Never making reservations through 3rd parties & definitely never staying at this hotel again!

Won't be able to see anything out the window, so don't worry about a beachview room. The window will be covered with salt. If you want to see the beach you have to get a balcony room. When you walk into the room, you will know its a beach hotel, due to smell. Great location and not much options in the area though. I'll stay in Corpus next time.

great location ON THE BEACH plus warm pools. Lobby and restaurant was being renovated bit inconvenient.

Our visit started with them letting us check in at 1200 instead of 400. Kept us from sitting around for 4 hours. Though really busy with guests leaving, they happily helped us get unloaded and into our room. Every time we passed through the door, we were cheerfuly greeted. The room was great, even though it was not an ocean facing room..we could see it around the corner. All in all a nice place.

This place is right on the beach and walking distance to great restaurants! Great staff and the pool bar is awesome!

It was a good visit, Great Location. The facilities are a little outdated and the whole Hotel seems damp and humid, but it is right on the beach, so I guess it happens. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The Pool and Bar were over crowded as the hotel has an agreement with nearby hotels to share resources. For the price, I expected more, but I enjoyed the stay.

Hotel staff were professional, friendly, and courteous. For the price of my stay, would have expected better accommodations. Although clean, every part of the hotel was old and weathered. It was almost an 80's flashback. Made up for price and being outdated by its great location on the beach. The live music, pool, and outdoor bar were also very nice. From the appearance of other hotels in the same area, probably the best choice.

Great location, right on the beach. We will be making this a yearly destination.

To start of let me say that my experience was just average,we called ahead to see if we could check in early and the staff said no we couldn't so when we got there at 4 there were no good rooms left,and my husband and I were like how can this be? The lady at the front desk said we couldn't check in early. So we just took our room key and when we got upstairs our "view" was not a view at all it had an old palm tree right in front of our window. I was very disappointed in that but when we told the manager Spencer,he was very accommodating and made our stay a little bit better. But as things happen,we actually had a little bit more bad luck my husbands phone was stolen in the sandbar lounge and no one turned it in. Which is very disappointing he lost everything and the ladies at the front desk didn't seem to care. All in all I enjoyed my experience and would like to go back again but next time check in earlier and not keep my phone on me since there are theives that stay in this hotel.

hotel close to the beach

Non-Decaf Coffee lovers

We liked the hotel because it was close to the beach, but service was not pleasing at all, room had only decaf coffee and we called the reception asking about coffee, well the answer in short was like "Too bad", they didn't even offer a coffee from the lobby.
