The only thing nice about this hotel is that it's right by the beach. The rooms are not at all sound proof and the air conditioning unit is almost as loud as a tank. The rooms are not very clean and it's most definitely not worth the rates they charge. I wouldn't recommend this lousy hotel to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
We booked ocean view and did not get on the side of the ocean. Drain in tub kept stopping up. Pictures on the computer were enlarged about 5 times than actual size of everything. The people in the dinning area were great and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location - walk out to the beach and they had live music at the outdoor bar area. Hotel is a bit dated but room was clean and staff was helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Thank you so much for your feedback, we are so happy that you enjoyed the music and the relaxing patio. We will be sure to let our staff know that their services were appreciated. We hope to see you here again at the Holiday Inn.
"Close to the beach but not the greatest hotel."
The worst part was the first night when we were getting into bed after a long day, there were stains on the sheets. I don't think they ever changed the sheets out. Really gross! I let them know and they sent someone to change them. They left us less towels than the number of people we had staying there. The electrical outlets did not work. I tried to […] plug in my ipad and most all but 1 plug worked. I've stayed at a lot better hotels. However, the best part was not having to walk far to the beach. Also, we ate at the hotel's restaurant and they took FOREVER to bring us our food and when they did, my kid's hamburger buns were burned. I couldn't believe they actually sent them out like that. My chicken in my salad was also dry and hard. I didn't dare send it back though. I just sucked it up. It was very unfortunate. I had to go back to my room and eat a sandwich.

We had a good time over the July 4th weekend. Pricey, but a good time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel location is why we always go back."
Hotel location is why we always go back. I take my own cleaning supplies because the rooms are not very cleaned. Careful with charging to room or card. We tipped room service cash, and they still added gratuity to the charge. Prices at hotel store are very reasonable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Thank you for your feedback, we truly do appreciate it. I am glad that you enjoyed the location. I appreciate your feedback about the cleanliness of your room. I will discuss this with our housekeeping staff so we can prevent these issues in the future.

This may have been an over sight with our restaurant staff but I do want to make sure it gets corrected.
"close to beach, great pool for small ones"
very convenient for beach play and fun if not interested in beach - great pool and playground for small children. Staff very friendly and always available. Unhappy with fact that when making reservation (I called Holiday Inn), it went to Expedia & was unable to get Priority Club points so, if member, be careful about who is taking reservation.Genuine Expedia guest review

"On the beach"
Front desk people and restaurant staff were great. very friendly and very helpful. Had trouble with lock on door on one of my 3 rooms. Over and over it could not seem to be fixed. also room cleaners were not very efficient nor timely. Had to call down to front desk 2x to get room cleaned in late afternoon. Overall was very good and would definitely […] go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 steps from the hotel pool deck to sandy beach"
Staff was very friendly. Good all you can eat breakfast bar with ocean view. Building is a couple of decades old but well decorated and kept up for an ocean front property. The beach, the pool and the cabana bar are this hotels best assets not to mention the courteous staff. I Would stay here again just for the facilities and beach access alone. This […] is the Flagship hotel along this stretch of beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive Nice Beachfront Hotel"
Title says it all -- only downside was no continental breakfast -- buffet was $9.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, close to the beach"
Good hotel but the room was dirty. Bed sheets and bed was clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff were friendly and efficient. Access to beach and pool was fantastic. Problem areas were that there were very few other eateries around and the hotel restaruant was limited and expensive, The beach bar attached to hotel was also very expensive and they didn't allow personal beverages in the pool areas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will come again!"
We had an overall great experience. We did not try the food, due to the bad reviews I read prior to booking. We did walk into the restaurant, and it smelled like a hospital cafeteria! There are plenty of places to eat nearby. It was great being so close to the beach! The staff were super nice and there is a gift shop in the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Grand kids vacation"
This was such a perfect kid friendly beach hotel. It is a very relaxed environment and allowed me to enjoy the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First time staying there"
Despite growing up in Corpus Christi for my entire childhood, I had never stayed at this hotel. It was nice to be able to bring my kids back with me and give them the experience I had. I must say, it was a bit chilly when we there. It made the beach a little difficult to enjoy. The outside bar would have been awesome, but it was closed. The staff was […] very nice. They took good care of us. When we checked in, I was worried about the spring break time. They said two weeks ago, it was pandimonium, but we were there in a good time. It was relatively quiet. I really enjoyed the balconey. It was nice to sit with coffee in the morning and enjoy the quiet. I was NOT impressed with the food at the restaurant. I bought the breakfast plan and shouldn't have. It wasn't worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Rooms are clean, but, the room balcony are realy dirty, they never clean it. Also the swimming pool is nasty, all around the swimming pool is fatty.Genuine Expedia guest review
I ordered a room with a balcony facing the beach. I spoke directly to a sales associate who told me the "beach view" room was with a balcony facing the beach. Upon arrival, the room I was given faced parallel with beach and toward another hotel. I spoke to the staff who told me my room was booked with a "partial" view of the beach. I guess "partial" […] was the tiny portion of the beach I could see of the beach. They refused to give me the room I was quoted and told me if I wanted to trade up it would be much more. I was unwilling to pay the extra so I kept the "partial view" room. The room was ok but smelled funny. The ac unit would cycle on and off frequently and would produce a loud thumping sound running.

Will not stay here again!!! It was nice that we where on the beach but this hotel is very outdated. The staff was very good. Just very disappointed in the Hotel itself.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stained Sheets, No Towels, Smelled"
Booked this Hotel for a little getaway. Thought it would be good because of the Holiday name plus close access to the beach. But when we checked in the room smelled like mildew and noticed there were no towels a huge hole in the wall and a huge stain on the white bed sheet. Notified mgmt left came back and everything the same! I went back downstairs […] again to speak with the shift mgr and he came up and changed them himself on his handheld radio other employees yelling at other employees. He had another worker is at his side helping him with the sheets but keeps glancing at my daughter. I was about ready to knock this guy out but kept my cool. I Just wanted clean sheets and to get out. Horrible experience and I will never stay at another Holiday in as long as I live Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
This hotel was way overpriced for the condition it was in. It was old a bit run-down. Nice beach access, but the food at the hotel was sub-par. Not much around else to eat nearby so it forces you to eat there. The only good thing is that they made a great burger. Our air conditioner wasn't blowing cold and they were able to fix it right away. They also […] brought more towels promptly when requested, but only gave us 3 to start with when there were 4 people on our room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a great stay"
Walls are paper thin and could here neighbors clearly talking past midnight. Toilet would continue flushing for more than 5 minutes. Asked to fix but it still kept doing it. A/C was not cold and room was muggy all night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bathroom sink drain was so clogged that it would not drain any water at all. Then, it took maintenance 90 minutes to unclog. Also, the A/C did not function properly, being hard to adjust the temperature.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the Beach but need ALOT of work."
The staff was nice, the location was great, but the hotel was dirty, the restaurant was mismanaged and slow, etc. With new management or just a bit a cleaning this place would be a gold mine. Hopefully the hotel will be reading this and make some much necessary adjustments.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More For Adults Than Kids"
IMO- Hotel is meant more for adults. Loud music until 10pm. You can hear it in your room, but the music is nice if you are at the pool or bar. The bar has overpriced drinks $7-$8 each and are very small & weak! The hotels.com is not accurate. It states that for $10 more you get breakfast. THIS IS NOT TRUE!!! You receive a $10 off $20 voucher..similar […] to a Groupon. I have & many of the residents of the hotel have notified this hotel, they don't seem to do anything about it. The rooms are small and very uncomfortable. The A/C is so LOUD and it continuously pops on and off. The walls and windows are thin. The restaurant is not good. Overpriced and the food is blah. On the flip side.. the staff is great! In addition, it is nice to be able to walk to the beach and go on a short drive to some nice seafood restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, as close to the beach as you can get!"
Hotel was nice but no free breakfast. Lobby was small but they were opening a new snack bar while we were there. The pool was smallish but the ocean was very close.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was ready before checking in, a/c temperature was always comfortable, good access to the beach. But swimming pool location between the bar was what I didnt want it since I had me kids but we like the stay, good experience with the family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Acess to beach from the hotel."
Staff was friendly although they did not bring fresh towels and make the beds the second day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is good - beach nor so much"
The room was a good size and comfortable. The elevators were small - which could be a problem when a rush of people check in/out. The beach had a strong odor due to the seaweed that had washed up on shore.Genuine Expedia guest review
I think the hotel is great, love the bar. The restaurant is not good at all. They'd really have a hot spot if the food was a good as the rest of the hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best staff ever"
From the moment we walked in until we left we will never forget our stay....the hotel staff was the most friendliest and accommodating personnel I have ever met. From the front desk to the cute/funny waitress for breakfast it was great. Hotel room and all else was wonderful. I just really have to mention all the staff at that hotel and how very proud […] Holiday Inn Corpus Christi should be to have such a great staff. 5* all the way Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"a couple of days at the beach"
I took my 12 year old granddaughter to the beach. We stayed a couple of nights at this hotel. We slept together in a king size bed. The bed and the room was very comfortable for our purposes. The hotel was clean considering that you are at the beach with people tracking in sand all the time. It is a kid friendly hotel. It has two reasonable pools and […] a hot tub. A great place for kids. It also had a safe, small refrigerator, and microwave in the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good for beach fun"
Expensive hotel, but on the gulf beach. Few amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great beach access"
Only bad comment was the smoking in the pool area. Seemed unnecessary with a bar just outside pool gate. And the people smoking and dropping ashes in the hot tub prevented us from using.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the Money"
You can stay at a nicer hotel across the street for less. Hotel staff was not very friendly and room was very small for the money you pay for this hotel. Room was clean but AC unit had a hard time keeping the room cool and never really got to the temp that I wanted it. The only nice thing about the hotel was that it was on the beach, but as it is a […] beach that you can drive onto with any car, staying at a hotel across the street would have been the same thing just a lot less money and a nicer room.(A friend stayed across the street and the rooms were a lot nicer). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price you would think they could make sure the housekeeping could keep it cleaner. The key card rarely worked, we had to go down and get them charged almost every time we used them, and it still took a lot of swipes to get in. The edges of the walls had dust and dirt around them as well as behind the beds. The balcony had trash on. Under the […] microwave and things had dust and food particles under them. The elevator sounded awful. The loby was mice and the people at the desk were nice, the just need to keep it up better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Prefer Other Options When Visiting N. Padre Island"
This was our second time at the HI on North Padre Island. I personally, would not have returned to the hotel a second time, but my wife was adamant about staying on the beach. This truly is the only perk of this hotel. There are not other hotels on the beach on North Padre Island (missed real estate development opportunity). Without competition, the […] Holiday Inn can continue to have overpriced rates for a poorly kept property. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Truly A Good Stay..Going Back.."
My wife and son and myself was looking for a place to relax and fish at the same time. We came across this website that had this hotel as a choice. We went and we were glad that we choose this hotel.

"one of the only hotels on the beach."
Best family vacation. ...must rent a golf cart....kids just love itGenuine Expedia guest review
The potential is there for this to be a fantastic hotel. Ahh, but human error or simply not caring prevents this. Go, have a great time~ but you will see what i mean. Do NOT pay extra for the restaurant. Regardless of convenience you will be full of regret, not breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"bad window view"
stayed on may 23-25 had a window view of a hotel next door which was being renovated, eye sore, couldnt even open up window because workers were in plain view at window level. had to stay with the window closed. big let down but made the best of it. aside from that the location was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"More of a party hotel than a family-friendly one."
The room looked like it had been the victim of a poorly done renovation. The sheets had stains and the floor was filthy. While the inside of the hotel was smoke-free, the pool area was not, and there were quite a number of drunk adults loitering around in the pool area and parking lot, who may not have even been hotel guests. The hotel has potential, […] but it seems like the staff aren't caring enough to bother and that the management doesn't care enough about the quality of the rooms. The hotels main boasting point is location; it's right on the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Air did not work in room 620. I was told at time of booking trip that breakfast would be included and it was not. Do not eat at hotel café. The food was not goog.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to the beach nice location"
The stay was nice ladies at the front desk were very nice and helpful. like the fact that the beach is about 30ft away from the entrance there's a bar at the pool and live music. The only thing that I would have a issue with is the Hotel Restaurant. We only had breakfast there wasn't the best could have been better. Other than that I would recommend […] the Hotel for the weekend great for families and or just a weekend getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok hotel next to beach"
We arrived at check in on Saturday. The room was ok but we had a wonderful view of the construction of the hotel next door. Our room was the closet to the elevator and was quite loud. The room was clean enough though. The hotel staff was great and the amenities were adequate. The pool bar and live band was excellent. Bar keeps were friendly and drinks […] were inexpensive. The beach access is excellent. Our teen aged boys loved the game room! We would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
