"Nice hotel on the beach"
The good reviews for this hotel were very good, but the bad ones were really bad. I decided to book the hotel here because of it being right on the beach and the management always responded when there was a bad review which showed me that they were trying to make improvements, however I was very nervous about the stay. The lobby is pleasing and the […] staff was very nice. The hotel right on the beach was a plus! The only down side was that the hotel room windows do not open (maybe book a balcony next time?) and the room smelled musty. I had to spray perfume around and my daughter's allergy started to act up. The bathrooms seemed to be updated with new tile and the sheets were white and clean. (I brought extra sheets just in case) I did not see any bugs as mentioned in previous reviews and we did not eat at the restaurant so I can't comment on that either. The pool bar was open on a week day which is a plus!! The other hotels we stayed at didn't have the pool bar open during the week. The view of the gulf was awesome, unfortunately the few days we were in Texas the weather was cold! (always our luck) We stayed the week before Easter and there were no activities on the beach. I would have liked to have done para sailing. We usually book vacation packages where the activities are planned so I guess I'm not used to staying on a beach and there is nothing going on. If I were to come back to the Padres for relaxation, I would stay here again. The price and location was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good place for weekend ... but not for sleep!"
We stayed over a busy weekend when the hotel was booked. So with a big family of kids in the next door room, and paper thin walls ... it was pretty noisy. Though there is a nice pool and sauna, you could only get in the pool because the sauna was always full of kids. If you have anything more than an overnight bag you have to use the service elevator […] because the elevator cabs can only hold 2 or 3 with a couple of light bags ... maybe. Not good if you are looking for a quiet place on the weekend. Otherwise our room was very clean, and the beds comfortable .... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My only complain was during the breakfast ... they run off bread I ask for some but they didn't give it to me , and the menu was really poor , and the windows in the restaurant were dirty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel room was older but CLEAN!! I saw no bugs at all not even an ant..I would definitely stay there again..EAT […] at DOCS near the bridge..the food and atmosphere was amazing!!!

"excellent hotel with beach front access"
hotel has every thing to offer and is always available; for suggestions and assistance . great experience. thskGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We will definitely be returning on our next trip down there.Genuine Expedia guest review
I felt that the rate was to high for the room we got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Dining room was suppose to be open at 0700 on Monday, had to get front desk to get someone's attention from the kitchen, and then that person was surprised when we showed up at 0730. She made a statement that nobody ever showed up on a Monday morning before. Makes you wonder why--food was good but way overpriced. Also, had a loud band playing until […] 7PM.

Amazing location right on the beach! Very friendly and helpful staff (especially Abby) dedicated to helping you enjoy your stay. Tons of neat shops and restaurants near by and easy access to the main parts of Corpus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel on the beach"
Great hotel but the only issue I had was that the facet knobs on the sink and bathtub/shower knobs kept coming off. Other that everything was great, especially being right next to the beach. Didn't eat at the restaurant downstairs so I can't speak on that. Rented a golf cart for 3 hours from the gift shop downstairs...little under powered but was fine […] if you stay in the surf and stay out of the dry loose sand. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay on the beach"
The view was wonderful, too bad it rained while we were there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spring Break 2014"
The hotel and hotel staff were very nice. Restaurant was a bit slow, I recommend buffet style in the future. The walls were thin and I was disturbed while sleeping by some rowdy neighbors. Overall good experience... Thanks!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"really nice place"
wish we could have stayed longer. nice tiki bar outside by the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Young crew no people skills just a number,maybe it's not the age is just a hotel not very congenial. The hotel I was at the day before was very friendly warm caring treated you like a person made you feel at home what a difference from one day to the next, but I didn't know whether I wanted to stay at the beach for the bay so I rented a room at each […] now I now and boy there's a difference.

The hotel was OK, although the bar was closed at 9pm. Guests were noisy throughout and the walls were very thin making sleep difficult.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not What I Expected"
This property is badly in need of renovation! My room was quiet but not up to par with other Holiday Inn properties. Bed was okay but firm. Woke up to make coffee and found a roach that could have carried my bags out to my car in the bathroom. The front lobby was in need a cleaning, and looked bad! Did not attempt to eat in the restaurant as I felt […] like I had gone back in time 15 years. I would not recommend this hotel and the overall experience was not great!

"Nice people but...."
Staff was friendly, however "housekeeping" was knocking on doors at 8:40pm (too late and as unexpected, somewhat suspicious). Also cockroach in room. Dinner--fish was excellent but hush puppies seemed cooked from frozen and beans seemed from a can. Additionally paid a bit extra for beach view.... Directly out window was roof top. You could see beach […] but it wasn't direct. Should be "partial" beach view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel w/beach view"
I was expecting a beach frontal view for the price that we paid not a beach view along the side of the building.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had never stayed on that portion of the shore south of the Packery channel. The sand was nicer and we saw shells we hadn't seen farther north. The long concrete 'boardwalk' in front of the hotel was nice for walks when you didn't want to get your shoes dirty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Typical beach property."
The hotel is old and in desperate need of remodeling. The gift shop and coffee bar are closed. The restaurant recently failed their health inspection. There was a terrible cover band playing outside in the tiki bar preventing us from sleeping or watching tv. The hotel staff were very friendly and it is unfortunate that Holiday Inn cannot update the […] property as the location was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I loved the location!!!! Rooms are a little dirty (Roaches). The restaurant was not that goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach, birds, fish, turtles, sand, surf, dolphins."
4 stays in recent years--midwinter to late spring. Great environment and beach access. Steady improvement in room furnishing and staff. We fish and bird and turtle watch in winter or spring--favorite sites on the beachfront at the hotel, in Port Aransas at the jetty, or in the excellent birding sites, or at the UT institute of marine science. Corpus […] Chrisiti is close, convenient and has excellent restaurants both chain and local. Good museum, aquarium, party boats, botanical garden, the Lexington air craft carrier museum for WWII and flying buffs. National seashore has great facilities for all things beach related. Easy access to whooping crane tours from either Port Aransas or Rockport another 20 miles or so to the north. We prefer the tours from Rockport for convenience and shorter boat rides. Sea turtles are seen regularly, swimming near the jetties just North of the hotel in the Packery channel. Mostly green sea turtle juveniles--we haven't seen Kemp Ridleys here, but they are raised and released down the beach at the National Sea Shore. Get information from the national sea shore or at the Marine Science Institute in Port A. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We were not expecting a 5star hotel so we were happy with this hotel. Yes, the hotel is a little worn...BUT IT HAS A GREAT VIEW! We could even look out the window and see the ocean from our bed (we were on the 6th floor, side view). And you are directly on the beach so that is an added bonus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for one night"
Booked an Ocean view through hotels.com but got a Beach view/Partial sea view room when I reached there. They asked me $40 for upgrade to ocean view OR told to call Hotels.com and deal with them since their system doesn't show that and it was a mistake of hotels.com. I had to settle in after a long travel with small kids so agreed to take what they […] offered and the lady at reception offered a free breakfast. Was sort of disappointed by this change. Room was not comfortable for sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right Next to Beach"
Our stay was for only one day. We checked-in to a Junior Suite. The room was spacious and clean. Room didn't have any odd smell. We didn't find any roaches or Bed Bugs. Ocean view from Balcony was beautiful. Hotel is right next to Beach so you can enjoy your morning and evening there. The oven was very small. It would have been nice if they have given […] a vessel/plate which fits this size. The one which we bought along with us didn't fit and we couldn't use Oven for heating food. The only problem which we noticed - Loud music orchestra. This ran till mid night and I could hear the loud noise on 6th Floor !! Since the hotel is next to beach you can hear people shouting and screaming even from top most floor. We could hear noises almost throughout the night. Check-in and Check-out were smooth and the welcome desk people are courteous enough. Finally the Wifi speed at this hotel is 7MBPS download and 1 MBPS upload. In case you are planning to watch something online during your stay, forget about it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice and right on the beach"
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. View of ocean and beach from room . Restaurant was closed two days and coffee shop closed during month of December but there are a lot of restaurants nearby. Very, very clean and room. Nice amenities including a microwave, frig and a real coffee pot with great coffee.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Thanksgiving on the beach"
Nice, older hotel right on the beach. Room had new carpet and very comfortable beds. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Enjoyed our stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best staff ever!"
From the front desk to the dining room to the maid service the staff bent over backwards to make our stay fun. We ate wonderful breakfasts (under $10) in the dining room which has windows on all sides with a view of the beach. The wait staff made sure our coffee and tea were topped up and even presented a "to go" cup of tea for me each day. The day […] and evening front desk staff helped us with directions and gave us discount coupons for the Aquarium. We had a great stay! We will be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is in a good location, but the hotel needs to be remodel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never going again"
Well lets see the description was not to date they posted they had a sauna and there was none they even listed one on their map in the room. There fixtures in rooms where not put up properly. They had a cafe in there lobby the 2 workers did not know how to make drinks and my drink had some white rubbery string thing in it they said it was whip cream […] but I did not get whip cream in my drink. For all those problems they gave us a better room and 3 hrs free in a golf cart and our golf cart was broke as well. my huband had to fix it temporally so we could drive back to our hotel. And this was our honey moon....... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Staff was awesome!"
From the time we arrived to the time we left, every staff member we encountered was very friendly and helpful! We arrived in the middle of the night and the person at the front desk was happy to see us. The beds were super comfy and the fact that the hotel is on the beach cannot be beat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel did not notify me when room was ready so I did not check in until after dark - after paying an upgrade for a gulf view which I did not get to see. Also restaurant was closed so had to go back into town for food. I stayed in Corpus Christi for a week but left this hotel after one night. Much better deals in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We always go to this hotel because is amazing specially during fall not hot not call and not to many people,we love everything about the hotel. Thank youGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It's on the beach!"
There aren't many beachfront hotels with these ameneties at this price anywhere nearby. This place really made our weekend beach getaway super easy and relaxing. The hotel isn't perfect, but the location is great, rooms are great, and beds are wonderful. I would definitely stay here again over other places I've tried in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view from the window..."
The hotel is nice, practically "on" the beach, with opportunity to walk along the beach but not on the sand, very useful if you don't want to get sand on your feet or if you are pushing a baby-cart and so on. Quiet and relaxing, with a great view: when we entered in our room the window gave us an immediate good feeling!Genuine Expedia guest review
"I won't let my dog stay DIRTY,DIRTY,DIRTY!"
This Hotel was so dirty it made me sick. I can't beleave Holiday Inn would put this in there name. or Expedia would put this on there site. Makes me feel I won't go through expedia again. $110.00 of dirty stay. I think I should be refunded. I don't think Hoilday Inn or Expedia user would Stay...NO THANKSGenuine Expedia guest review
Most of staff were very well trained and motivated- One evening desk lady when asked for change- ( did not even say hello, or thank you or anything I felt like I wa disturbing her) - other than the one person the restaurant and hotel staff were superb. Off seaon so there minor problems- vending machines needed restocking- but still a good stay and […] location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"NICE RELAXING STAY"
We had a blast, this hotel is not that close to main attractions but enjoyed that due to being quieter. This hotel is literally right on the beach and extremely nice. I would recommend this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice visit. It was horrible we had to walk our kids through the outdoor bar area trough drunks and smokers to get to the pool area. Many young couples drunk in hotel in evening. Beautiful view and very coutious staff. Restaurant was great.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great place for a FUN get-a-way"
Honeymoon get-a-way. Too many kids, which is great for families but a little noisy for romance.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Congratulations on your honey moon! We are so happy that you chose to stay with us for your special day. I hope you were able to relax and enjoy yourself.
"Beach adjacent is the best feature"
Older but refurbished hotel right on the beach. I would have like that they told me that the only restaurant on the property was booked for a private party so no dinner and room service didn't answer their phone the entire weekend. I drove down to a local bar and grill and had a steak there. The beds are so high you need a ladder to get on it. They […] said beach front view more like side view over a terrace with dirty sneakers someone threw up there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is on the beach which is convenient."
Did not like the fact that the beach is open to the public so cars are allowed on the beach. During the week days it is not as busy with cars. Make sure and ask for a room away from the elevators that is unless you like hearing everyone going to and from the elevator. Overall would go againGenuine Expedia guest review
Great in every way. Will stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wife and I did a quick getaway to the beach and traveled on the Harley for a one night stay over. The following day the weather was turned bad (raining) I asked the staff if we could stay a little longer so the weather could better. They allowed us to stay as long as we could. Thanks, we really did appreciate that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very relaxing and right on the beach. The restaurant was very good and staff was very on top of things. Hotel was clean as well as the rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was fine. Great view. Band plays till 11PM which is good or bad depending on your point of view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the Beach"
Hotel restaurant was convenient. Elevators are SMALL. The Tiki Bar was good, especially the music. The pool was not too crowded. They kept the outside area very clean. If only it was not 30-40 mph winds! They did a great job of making you feel at home. They were always curtious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Thank you for your feedback and compliments. We are so happy that you enjoyed the Sand Bar. It is one of our main attractions! I will share this positive feedback with the staff. We hope to see you here again at the Holiday Inn!
"Nice hotel with bar by the pool"
Hotel was nice (it wasnt over the top good but it wasnt a crappy one either). It was nice having the bar by the pool, I was able to have a few drinks by the pool while looking down to the beach. The only thing we had a problem with was that the balcony door didnt shut good so we had the annoying whistling of the wind going all night long!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island I am so sorry that you your balcony door did not function properly. I will have our balcony doors checked so that the next guest will not experience the same issues. We are sure glad that you enjoyed the Sand Bar and the amazing views!
"Location, nice...room, not so much"
Location was great!!!! Room was just a little old and outdated. Other than that not too bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Cliff, Thank you for your feedback. We are happy you enjoyed the location and we hope to see you again soon.
