"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

"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!

Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you here again at the Holiday Inn on North Padre Island.
The hotel was at a nice location but you can tell its an old hotel. The toilet is old fashion with the old lever handle on the side and the commode itself very low. The mattress hurt my back so it was not a new pillow top or gel mattresses like other hotels. The result is I left the hotel with a back ache.Genuine Expedia guest review

Our room was always damp, but other than that, the stay was great. The open bar by the pool/beach was very nice. The restaurant has new management (May '13) and has helped the qualilty of the menu.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island We appreciate the positive feedback, we are happy you enjoyed the new and improved restaurant. The Sand Bar is one of our biggest attractions and it is the best place on the island to get a drink.
"Over rated hotel"
We booked this hotel a week before Labor Day weekend for 2 nights,was prepaid to Expedia .The location ,in proximity to the beach was not bad, the crowd is loud,since trucks and cars are allowed to park on the beach ,it is not a pleasing view.we decided to cancel the second night, and we lost the second night stay price which was pricey for a holiday […] inn.I would not visit this place again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Patty, Labor day is a busy time here on the island. You may enjoy staying here during the months of October or November. The weather is still nice and warm but the crowds are a lot smaller.
"Good location, price and bar"
The hotel was in a perfect spot, walking distance to the beach. If you want convience to the beach this is the Hotel for you. It's an older Hotel but has been renovated. Like any hotel directly on the beach you're gonna have corrosion but it's expected. The Pool and bar outside by the beach is a plus, perfect for the kids and Adults to enjoy them selfs […] at night. I would stay at this hotel again especially for its location on the beach. This is the spot if your on a budget, and want to walk to the beach. Can't say anything about the hotel restaurant we did not eat there. The wife and kids enjoyed it and I was able to fish everyday so this Hotel is a winner in our book.

"can't believe this holiday inn charges so much..."
This is the only hotel on north padre island so I guess that's why a holiday inn in such poor condition think thats its alright to charge 400$+ a night for such a ran down hotel. Usually hotels that charge that much are at least 4 stars. This is barely a 2 star hotel. They have jacked up their prices over the last few years yet have done no renovation […] to make it a nicer cleaner hotel. The pool is tiny, the restaraunt is horrible, the decor is cheesy. I can't believe we paid this much for this hotel. Not worth it, will never stay there again. There are new hotels right across the street. That's where we will stay if we ever go there again. The beach wasn't even that nice. Ewwwww :/ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We weren't told the room with the balcony would cost extra; the bar was closed; we couldn't connect to the internet to plan the rest of our trip; and our phone did not work! We wish we had stayed at the hotel across the street & plan to next time we visit. This hotel could really be nice if it were updated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Karen, Thank you for your comments and concerns. Our balcony ocean front rooms do cost more because of the view, I apologize if that was not correctly communicated to you. We hope to see you here again at the Holiday Inn so we can make it right with you.

"Run down hotel close to the beach"
The last time we were there (14 years ago) it was a nice hotel now it's showing its age. Service at restaurant in hotel was terrible. Only 3 sets of towels for 4 people. When we asked for more they had none. Telephone in room didn't work. Hair didn't work.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good for the money"
It was out first time in Corpus and someone recommended this hotel. Location is awesome! They also have two nice pools. Hotel seems a little outdated and the in-room AC unit didn't pull any moisture from the air. Room was clean. Service was great and staff was friendly and respectful. Overall, we had a good experience. Not sure if we would try a different […] hotel next time. But for the money, this Holiday Inn was a good deal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Padre Island Stay"
The front desk had two clerks. One was very quick and finished up with three customers while the other managed with one while she tried to multitask. She should only be answering phones and let the faster lady attend to the customers in the lobby. Our room's bathroom had stains on the wall and I saw a roach roaming around in the sink area. At the end […] of the hall were leftovers from the room service that were not picked up in the two days we were there. I guess this is why they have roaches. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent customer service - on the beach a plus!"
Overall the experience as good. The staff was extremely nice and responsive. The room we had was more attractive than the picture, The location on the beach made it very convienent to go to and from the hotel/beach. The overall facilities are OK, but are dated and food/bar services are limited, but it was fine for us. The beach was surprisingly nice. […] Being able to drive on the beach certainly is a plus -- no parking issues and no need to luge all of the equipment / cooler. I will go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was okay. >> I asked for "beach view" and was instead given "partial beach view." There was a massive palm tree covering our view from the window so no beach view whatsoever. >>Elevator is extremely small. Only 3 people fit comfortably, but you can squeeze a fourth in there. That didn't matter because by night time, both elevators were out of […] order for the rest of the night. >>Room was very clean and comfortable. I must say that night I slept as if I was at home. Bathroom was decent size. >>Parking is a bit archaic since you must find your own spot and have to drive around the small parking lot. >> Maintenance staff was friendly but very loud. We could hear them making noise all night! At first we thought it was our neighbors but when I looked outside I saw 2 ladies picking up trash bags and dragging them through the hall way. >>The proximity to the beach is amazing. We woke up in time to watch the sunrise on the beach. ***I probably won't be staying in this hotel again. Unless you are new to the area or don't want to drive around the city, I wouldn't recommend it. You could find much more suitable hotels that provide the same luxuries for about 2/3 of the price.

"Location, location, location"
The reason for staying at this hotel is all about the location. A few steps away, and you are on the beach. The hotel itself is older and in need of updating. The elevators are VERY small and one was out of order during our stay. Our first room had not been thoroughly cleaned, but when brought up to management we were upgraded to an ocean-view room. […] Cars are now permitted to drive on the beach below this hotel, which is a HUGE disappointment. The prices for this hotel are ridiculous, but keep in mind you are paying for the great location.
