"Almost nothing to complain about great breakfast!"
Overall our stay was great. I would definitely suggest it to anyone else. The price is more than reasonable for the location. The room was a little stuffy for me and a little warm, but it is right next to the ocean which makes everything humid and my family was comfortable with the temperature. I like to be cold. The wireless signal wasn't very good […] at all, but the whole point was to get away and unplug so it didnt bother me in the least. The view from the room was amazing and the service was great. The hotel is undergoing some improvements so I look forward to staying there next time. The continental breakfast was exceptional! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"TWO NIGHTS IN OCTOBER"
The new owners have done a great job of renovating this old property . . . but it is still an old property. For the price, though, this place can't be beat. The view of the marina and the downtown area is sublime. Putting the breakfast area on the top floor was a very nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Older hotel but well maintained. Don't miss the 11th floor lounge each night. Awesome view of the bay and drinksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a fan"
If you want to be right on the water, this is the place for you. Good views, i ran on the trail along the water and had a great dinner across the street at the seafood place. My room would not stay at an appropriate temp, was way to hot or way to cold. the entire floor smelled like sewage the entire day i was there. It is an hold hotel that needs updated […] asap. if you are not spending much time in your room, i suppose this would be an ok place. The only nice thing of the hotel was the lounge on the top floor. It's swanky decor did not match the hotel at all but was nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Avoid this hotel"
This hotel was dreadful. They advertise water views but that’s only if you go out on your balcony, stand in the corner and look at an angle. The room was dirty, two of the four lamps didn’t work and the door to the bathroom didn’t close. The ac is outdated so the room was either freezing cold or hot and humid. They don’t have cribs at all. I asked for […] several blankets and pillows so I could make a bed on the floor and they would not give them to me. Food from the bar and it was served undercooked. I tried to order a drink but couldn’t because they were out of several ingredients. The bartender told me the manager had been out of town for a month and she wasn’t allowed to order without his approval. The breakfast was DISGUSTING! We left the hotel and paid for breakfast rather than eating the free food just one floor up. Their idea of fresh fruit was fruit cocktail from a can. We lost the key to our safe and were told only the manager could open it and he wouldn’t be in until 8am the next day. We explained we had to leave by 9am and they promised he would call us as soon as he got in. We called at 8:15 the next day and were then told the manager would not be in until around 10am. I had to call the front desk several more times until they finally sent the maintenance guy up to unlock it. Clearly it was a lie that only the manager had the key. The wifi did not work an entire day. Several floors of the hotel are also under construction which begins early each morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was a little disappointed because the room smelled "fishy" when we arrived. Upon turning the thermostat down and when the room cooled off it was better. The beds were great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not on the beach as they would let you believe."
The room was not as expected and was definitely not on the beach. The hotel smelled bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed here the night before Conquer the Coast, a 65mile bike ride. The location is excellent - situated walking distance between the bay and the revitalized area of downtown. The bed was extremely comfortable and AC worked great. Covered parking fills up quick in the evening but there is plenty of additional parking. The breakfast buffet opened promptly […] at 6:30 and had a decent selection. The 11th floor has been turned into a lounge with drinks and no food and an excellent view of the water. They had about 5 beers on tap and decent liquor selection although my whiskey & water cost $13.50 which is way too much. I would definitely stay here again but do any drinking across the street at Executive Surf Club. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, but dated"
The hotel was adequate. It is old, though not in disrepair. The furniture is new, but the room smelled musty and like distant cigarettes. The humidity was very high, and there seemed to be a layer of dew on the carpeting. The hotel likely can do nothing about this problem, however, as Corpus sits on the Gulf Coast. The free breakfast is the same you […] see at any motel, powdered eggs, biscuits and gravy and sausage patties, Texas-shaped waffles and weak coffee. I wish someone would improve the minimum standard of free breakfast. Staff involvement was minimal but friendly. On one morning, the housekeeper opened my door while I was present. An honest mistake and no harm, no foul, but it speaks to the attention to detail level of the management. Bottom line: the best part of this hotel is the location. Otherwise, it is the same as any other motel along a highway or by an airport. Merely adequate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Favorite hotel in Corpus Christi tx"
Check in was a breeze, the room was very clean large, the TV had a plethora of channels to choose from and the open beach was 10 walking distance or 3 min driving. They have a buffet style breakfast with is good, the sausage not so much but everything else was awesome. I have no major complaints. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"overpriced water view downtown"
This looks better online than in life, but no serious complaints with what turned out to be a kind of tired property. Clean enough, friendly front desk staff, suitable beds and convenient to downtown business district. Nothing special, and somewhat overpriced. Breakfast was unexceptional. Parking was tight and not fenced. Balconies so small you can't […] sit out on them easily. Good restaurant across the street - Water St. Oyster Bar/Seafood Co. Good A/C - important in this town. Overall just meh at a should've-been-better price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not worth the money"
It was or first trip to Corpus and I'd say expectations were set realistically. The reality was much worse than expected. There was a ton of road work going on down town, the beaches were nasty, the surrounding area was run down and way over priced. Then there was the hotel. While the staff was courteous and helpful, the hotel was not what we had […] hoped for. At close to $200/night, I expected bigger, more comfortable rooms, at least a bay view, WiFi service that actually reached our room, a working thermostat, and a bathroom that wasn't leaking water everywhere. Total disaster in a town that's way over valued. Save some more money and go to Pensacola or at least pick a better hotel. Every $100/night La Quinta I've stayed at was far and away better than this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Treated with outright rudeness"
The room was clean, the breakfast very good. When I left a pair of shorts in my room I was told there would be a $10 Best Western fee to return them. I agreed and had them sent to my home in San Antonio. When I received the charge on my card it was for $28.15 so I called and asked a manager about the overcharge and was told the extra $18 was for postage […] and the box. I told her I was not informed of extra fees, only the $10 fee, which is all I agreed to. I stated I would not spend $28 on a $30 pair of shorts but would elect to wait 2 to 3 weeks when I would be back in Corpus Christi and hope they had not gotten lost. She said her employee had informed me of the extra charges and her employee was not a liar. I said I wasn’t calling her a liar, nor did I think she was a liar, but she could be mistaken. At this point I was cut off with the manager stating “It’s the same thing. This conversation is over” and hung the phone up on me. When I received the package it was one of those USPS boxes that are free and the postage was for $12.35. Adding the Best Western fee of $10 that adds up to $22.35 leaving almost a $6 difference in what I ended up being charged and what the charges should of been. I’d call to ask about that, but sure I would just get treated with the same contempt I already received from the hotel staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

enjoyed the great breakfast. good place to park. has friendly office staff. good experience have been here before and sent our grandchildren on their honeymoon to the hotel. have a blessed day.Genuine Expedia guest review
I booked the hotel largely because of the rave reviews of this site. I have to say that I was disappointed. The internet is slow and breakfast mediocre not to mention that the room is freezing. The surrounding downtown neighborhood is downright depressing. The waterfront is nice, but if you are looking for a good beach, you need to go to the Padre Island. […] I wish I knew that when I planned my trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sturdy, no-frills hotel"
Staff is friendly and helpful. The room was very serviceable and clean. This is not a 5-star hotel, but that's ok: I did not pay 5-star prices to stay here with my family. We wanted to see the Lexington and the Aquarium. This hotel is very convenient for these attractions (8 minute drive). However, if you want beaches in walking distance, no nice beaches […] are in the immediate vicinity of this hotel. The Padre Island National Seashore is only a 30 minute drive, though. The breakfast buffet is unremarkable but filling. I would definitely consider staying here again, if my family wants to re-visit the Lexington and the State Aquarium.

"Convenient, but needs work"
The staff was incredible and quite responsive. Friendly, too. I think they're in the process of remodeling this hotel. The carpet in my room on the 8th floor was dirty and has seen better days, as has the bathroom sink. I had to laugh a little. The tv remote control was sitting in the cardboard holder touting its special cover designed to make the device […] easy to clean and sanitize. When I picked it up I noticed a smear of something across it that was consistent with tomato sauce. Things happen. Anyway, the wonderful breakfast bar served on the 11th floor was tasty and had a killer view of the ocean. Yep, I'd stay again, but I think I'll wait until the renovations are completed.

great with the exception of the hammering from the construction going on, but was not in my room much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Generally were pleased with our stay. Feel we received value for the price. Breakfast and staff were great. Only complaint was the distinct odor, like a baby's wet diaper, in our room. This was not so much in the bathroom but in the room itself. Opening the balcony door helped but noticed the smell each time we returned to the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to marina"
I booked this hotel cause of the ratings. The only good part was, the hotel overlooked the marina. The hotel is old and needs repairs, there were repairs done on the room walls that looked as if holes were in the walls. The balcony doors were hard to open not to mention there was rust all over the tracks. The balcony is so small, one can't even place […] a chair out there to sit. In the downtown area construction was going on. Breakfast was not that good, all the baked goods tasted like they were from being frozen, coffe was watered down, eggs tasted like they were powered. The only good things I can say, bed was comfy, the room was clean, and the overlook of the marina. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view - good hotel"

"The Highs and the Low - lifes"
Upon our arrival to the Best Western Marina Grand Hotel, the front desk clerk acted annoyed and aggravated at our presence. She was not friendly, did not greet us nor welcome us and didn't even smile the entire time we spoke with her. Throughout our stay, whenever we did interact with or speak with other members of the staff, they acted as if they paid […] us to stay there instead of treating us as consumers who make their employment necessary. Also, we noticed that the staff went into our room everytime we would leave... and not to provide services of clean towels, linens, etc, but only to violate our privacy. The condition of the appliances, lighting, and decorative tastes of the room are excellent, and the view of the ocean from the balcony is amazing! Toss out the high - minded, violating, unprofessional, prying and disrespectful employees, and you've got nothing but good times and pretty views. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel for the rate"
The hotel met my expectations. Our room had a nice view of the harbor in Corpus Christi Bay. Also we had a great view of the bridge to Portland which provides a light show every evening. Quite amazing actually. You could tell the hotel is somewhat aged by the looks of the trim etc. in the bathrooms, but overall my party was happy which made it well […] worth it. I'd probably book this again the next time I'm in Corpus Christi. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"read before booking!"
Lots of little things bothered us about or visit here. For one, the air conditioning was just... Different it didn't hold a temperature. It either made the room too child or too hot. Another is that we weren't warned about the construction going on. They said it would be on the floors below us, but it was only two rooms down. If you're planning on staying […] here soon, do yourself a favor when booking and call to make sure the constructions finished. Also, midday the internet and TV went out. The wifi was a bit odd as well, out wouldn't allow me to connect, creating a major inconvenience. The breakfast and staff for the breakfast was amazing though.

"for the money, the staff could have been better"
We got into town 11am. we called and they said the room would be ready between 1pm to 2pm. We called 3 times and it wasn't till 4pm. I saw how the staff works in cleaning the rooms and I believe we were made to wait because I kept calling to see if the room was ready. When my husband went to check in, they were quite rude to him, because the reservation […] was in my name. (we were told it was in his name when we called). We were traveling with our son and grandson. They were tired of being in the car, if we could have gotten in the room sooner, we could have rested before going sight seeing. We will not stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
