"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

Great place, want to return soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island I am so sorry that our beds were not comfortable for you. We do our best to make sure every guest is relaxed and enjoying themselves. Unfortunately we fell short this time. We appreciate your feedback so that we can improve our services. We hope to see you here again at the Holiday Inn!
"Only hotel on n. padre"
Staff was Great! Convenient location right on beach. Hotel is aging, but wouldn't be bad if they did more appropriate maintenance. Rooms couldn't cool down properly because of the drafts coming through the doors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island I am so happy that you noticed the hard work our staff puts in. We always love to here guests compliments. We hope to see you again at the Holiday Inn!
"Good for location! But pricey for interior quality"
Great location! But restaurant food was not good. Look for meals elsewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"hotel on the beach"
tub wouldn't drain, water in bath and sink was hot or hotter, no cold water. booking on expedia seemed to irritate the staff.Genuine Expedia guest review

"nice hotel close to the beach"
get a room with a balcony and eat at snoop's under the causewayGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Our balconies do have awesome views! We are so happy that you enjoyed your room. Snoopys is a great place to dine. Next time you are here, try our restaurant located in the hotel!
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.
"Close to water is as good as it gets"
Drain in bathtub was stopped up. Air conditioner unit would not work correctly. The bed was extremely uncomfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
Response by Holiday Inn Corpus Christi - North Padre Island Jane, I am so sorry for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay here. We always appreciate feedback so that we can improve our services. We do have new management in our restaurant so I hope we see you here again so you can try the restaurant once more.
"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.

Very nice hotel nice staff. ac went out one night very hot but was fixed promptly . Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner but was nice Over all enjoyed my stay thank youGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what we thought"
The only good thing about this hotel was that it was located directly on the beach. The hotel and decorations are very outdated. Our room had a giant leak on the ceiling that kept getting bigger throughout our two day stay. On the last morning the water in our room was only coming out very hot or scalding burn your face off hot. Even the water in the […] toilet was steaming! Also, we were given a room with two adjoining rooms attached and we were never told this. We really aren't complainers but we had been staying at the Omni in Corpus Christi for the same price and it was 100 times better! Definitely a let down. If you're thinking about staying here don't do it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location nice pool & close to beach"
Just stayed 1 night but room was nice and good AC Did not get the room that was described when I booked onlineGenuine Expedia guest review
The Place was okay, but not worth the amount they charge, WAY OVER PRICED. The service in the restaurant was not great, they brought us salads that were made from old veggies, they had to remake the salads twice. Would not recommend this restaurant. The breakfast said it was free, that was misleading they did not give a free breakfast they give you […] a voucher for a discount for the breakfast, which would have been okay had we not been mislead when booking it to believe that it was a free breakfast. This is an two star hotel with a four star price. DISAPPOINTING!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pretty much all went well,hotel and area were good .. If any negative elevators are too small, very cramped but thats for hotel being old. But all in all good . Will recommend to stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Total over priced visit"
This hotel is in the price class from a 5 star but has the class of a two star. Two times the breakfast was not good at all, even we got one for free. The room was not super clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very friendly staff"
Our stay was great! We had a great time. All had a great time the pillows were so soft. towels were at the ready. the pool was nice. the hot tube was small. i would return in a second.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expecting a bit more - but "ok""
Pictures made it look newer than it really was. No place to hang out other than outside pool or in room. Room however was fine and beds/pillows/temperature super comfortable. I think it's simply hard to keep a place that close to the beach from being worn down by the sea-air. Overall a nice place but will probably stay somewhere else next time because […] the price you pay for being beach-side isn't really worth it, especially with no complimentary breakfast.

"Great Family Hotel by the Beach!"
We stayed for two nights this summer and had a great time! We had one of the rooms with a balcony and the room was very large! Plenty of room for the kids to spread out. The beach is nice and the easy access is great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel location a "5"; the beach a "0"..."
Hotel was old but located on the beach. If you're from the east coast, you won't be impressed with Texas beaches (unless you go all the way to South Padre). Cars and dogs everywhere...about as serene and sanitary as midtown Manhattan. Go to South Padre, Florida or anywhere else...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
