Staff was very friendly! We enjoyed being close to the beach!!

The room look as if remodeling was not complete. The AC did not work very well, but a fan was in the room help circulate the air. When first entered the room it had a really bad musty smell. This was not worth the money spent. Sorry. This was a lower class property. I will not use orbitz again for not checking the property for the cost your charged.

Nice location ,, and clean rooms,, i use room 224,,,a couple items here to mention, water leak at restroom at shower, ice machine out of service ,, all rest average …

The hotel is by the beach our main reason to stay here, the room is super functional with the small kitchen (micro, mini stove and mini fridge) and easy acces to main highways

The room was not worth 130 a night. Location is great but the room was not very clean. There were dirty towels in the trash can that stunk. Towels were thin and old. There were people outside drinking and playing loud music till 3 am.

Ok for a one night stay but not in good condition no toilet paper and no sheets on the bed, close to the beach and nice view

This motel is very run down. Room infested with roaches. Sewage backed up into many of the rooms. Twenty years ago it was ok and no improvements have been done to this place. Bathroom was a sight for sore eyes. All in all, it's just over priced for a run down motel.

Hotel was alright. Check in experience was quick. Having access to a pool was nice since the beach itself was full of dead jellyfish though the pool was crowded most of the day. There are big signs claiming no pets allowed but the guests next door clearly had chihuahuas tied to the balcony railings. Parking was adequate. Room was dated and could use redone. One of the two beds had a layer of plywood under the first mattress in an attempt to make it not sag I guess. Very uncomfortable night's sleep because of the beds. Thermostat read 99F the entire time, so A/C needed to be manually controlled.

This is no high-end fancy hotel. This is exactly what you think of when you think of a classic beach motel. No frills, a little worn, but well kept and reasonably priced. It has a total Mom&Pop feel and the staff is super friendly. The pool is big and there's a nice grassy lawn to relax or play on and, most importantly, the hotel is right on the beach. Not across the street or on the other side of a parking lot but RIGHT ON THE BEACH! I assume that you're here to go to the beach, not hang out in some hotel room, so this is where you want to stay. The bathroom was clean (kind of rare these days), the beds were clean, bug-free and comfortable. The floor was sand-free, there was a working mini fridge and a microwave. There's exterior access to every room so everyone has a balcony. The view from every room is of the ocean and the USS Lexington, half of the rooms have a view of the lighted bridge also. We loved it and will certainly stay here again!

Nice hotel by beach. Very private Beach view was nice Corpus Christi bridge lights up at night and very beautiful

The motel was in a great location, but there was feces smeared on the wall above the toilet and the smoke detector was chirping loudly periodically though the night. I know that this motel is a little older, but a once over would have improved the room before renting it out. I wonder what else was in the room that we didn't find...

Check in was very easy. The rooms were clean. You walk down the stairs and bam you're on the beach. Couldn't ask for anything better for such a good deal.

The hotel was clean. We had no issues. Housekeeping staff were very friendly. Office people were friendly as well.
