"Great location but unsatisfactory stay"
Our reservation was made about a month ahead and assured a good view of the bay and once we checked in Room 720, the dressing area going to the bathroom was wet and maintenance folks layed towels on floor and musky smell; tv stations not high definition; unable to connect to internet via my IPad; and any movement on the bed caused a rubbing sound between […] the mattress and the box spring (even sitting on the bed made this sound). Was offered another room and I checked it out and it was in the same condition and decided to stay in Rm 720 due to having a better view then the room offered. Upon checking out, this was conveyed to the staff and they would talk to management to see that we would get credit or a "free" stay in the future. As of today, we have not heard back from Best Western Marina Grand or anyone from Best Western. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everyone was very friendly, especially Sandra in house keeping. One thing that has nothing to do with hotel is Shoreline being under construction., it was a pain. Hotel was a little old but very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only think that had any type of issue with was the construction going on in front of the building and the detour that had to be taken but once i figured it out it was easy to get back to. the staff was friendly and rooms were clean it was easy to get around nothing was really more than 10 minutes away and a lot was within walking distance also they […] offer free parking which most places on shoreline do not I would defiantly stay again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the room, loved the proximity to great Corpus happenings. The staff always smiles, always asks how you are doing, always ready to jump to your needs. We come back year after year because this hotel has always made us feel welcome and a part of something special.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was okay...."
Came in expecting a lot from the pictures but came to realize that those pictures were just of the nice stuff and it really didn't show it all. While the service was nice our room was on a floor where they're was remodeling going on so lucky for us we woke up at 6 to eat breakfast when it was time for us to leave to go to the beach at 9 they're were […] all these workers up and down the hall hammering and making other loud noises. So had we slept in that would have been annoying, our sheets were dirty as well my biggest pet peeve even though linens maybe washed if they have any type of stain they should never touch a guest bed again, and the pool was not very clean you couldn't see to the bottom of it which being a life guard when I was in high school taught me that that defiantly is a safety concern. Breakfast was great, our room was roomy and again service was great check in time is 4 which was annoying because other places I've stayed the latest is 1 for check in so we got there at 1 and were greeted with being told it was at 4 but they would try to get a room ready earlier which they did around 3. Overall it was alright would I stay they're again maybe for a night if the price was below 100 if anything I'd spend a little extra next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would have loved to give this hotel a higher score because of the great rate we got for the room, the free hot breakfast, free parking, access to the beach and other attractions, and of course the great view of the bay. it's more than I've gotten when staying at 4-star hotel. but unfortunately, there were some negatives. The room smelled like a damp […] basement, the a/c did not work very well to keep the room cool or the humidity down. In fact, condensation was dripping down the wall. Also our room (909) was located directly under the exercise room which opened at 6:30 am and closed at 9 or 10. But other than that I would definitely stay there again. It's too bad that the downtown area wasn't that great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great stay, close to all downtown attractions. Too bad the Hooks lost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely view, clean rooms, very nice accomindations, gracious staff! Loved it and will recommend it to everyone! We Definitely will return to enjoy!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loud all the time, thin walls, breakfast terrible, carpet, chairs, pretty much all furniture felt old, dirty, and gross to sit on. 8th floor smelled of vomit. AMAZING view out the balcony but will never return unless it's completely redone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth a little extra to stay somewhere else"
Room smelled like detergent and mildew. Walls are paper thin. Dance club is very loud until late and any cars with loud exhaust sound like drag races taking off from stoplights below. Found SHORT hairs in coffee maker. Hammering on floor above me started at 8 am. Parking lot in back is not monitored. Back of my passenger mirror was torn off and thrown […] across parking lot (I was able to find it). In retrospect, I would have spent $15-20/ night more to stay somewhere else. If you just need a room to stay the night, bring earplugs and park in the "garage". Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have no complaints. Would stay here again at a good price of course.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The pictures of the hotel are some what deceiving, they make the hotel look a lot nicer then what it really is. You can hear each time the next room flushes the toilet/ takes a shower as the drainage is very loud. The tub needed detailed cleaning. Would definitely pay extra to stay at a better hotel next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Paid entirely too much"
The surrounding streets were undergoing construction so it was difficult to find the entrance. The room decor was very dated. The bathroom was tiny and not worth the price. The plumbing couldn't have been louder. We could hear every single toilet flush in the building and there always seemed to be water running (not in our room). The air condition controls […] were old and made strange noises when we adjusted the temperature. However, the bed was comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great! clean, comfortable room. Great breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
we tried to get a way on the weekend for a fishing trip with family but I made a mistake and booked a wrong date, when I called to change the date they told us there is nothing they can do and we gonna lose the $186.29, one room for just one night and nothing special about the room.not much frindly front desk (i guess they had a bad day), they told […] us breakfast gonna be serve until 11a.m and when we went there at 10:20 everything was gone because they serve till 10 not 11 and front desk just said it was a mistake and we end up eating elsewhere. inside of the hotel was kinda old but clean, not exactly like the pictures you see online and roads to the hotel were closed, due to the construction and we end up parking our car at the whataburger right across the street. basically they charged us almost $200 for one room from 4pm to12pm next day..next time we just gonna drive and get a room there so we can see the place before paying for it.overall very bad experience.

The hotel has been recently remodeled, so it looks great. The hot breakfast was very good and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Liked it. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Breakfast buffet was good. View of marina was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really Loud Hotel"
Nothing really good about being across the street from a group of bars that play live music until 2am... Except they help drown out the folks playing guitar at 1:30am in the room next door who sing "really" bad... Much nicer places to stay nearby that only cost a few $$ more... I will spend the money in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"older hotel but nice overall"
There was construction being done to hotel...but other than that, it was a great location n a great experience overallGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will not stay here again"
This hotel was overpriced and we had an extremely difficult time using hotels.com with the staff during check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overal my stay was good. Good staff, there are plenty of places to eat around the hotel. My only gripe about the hotel was that the wi fi did not work. I stayed on the 7th floor and called repeatly about the wifi but they could not fix it but other than that it is a good hotel for a getaway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel when we went to see the deftones in concert recently. The experience was awesome. Friendly service. Everyone seemed to know what was going on. I would definitely stay here again when I go back to Corpus ChristiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in a number of hotels while in Texas. Yours was the bestGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family hotel"
The service was excellent and rooms were very clean. Our only complaint was it got a little noisy at night since it was close to some bars that had live bands. But we enjoyed standing out on the balcony and listening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Week Long Stay"
Me and my boyfriend just got back from our stay at this Best Western, and it really was a great hotel! Especially for the price. Located just behind the marina, at edge of downtown Corpus Christi, there's lots to do all around you. Tons of bars and restaurants, and you can walk to McGee beach ( although, as beaches go, you might want to take a drive […] to another one, because I would definitely count this one as dirty.) But it is nice to drive/ walk past on the sidewalk. As for the actual hotel, I believe we had a great room with a great view. It was on the 8th floor on the East side of the building, with a great view of the marina and the water beyond it. The pool was nice, good place to tan, but I wish it was a little bigger. Staff was very helpful and friendly, especially in the breakfast room. Which was awesome, by the way! Top floor so the best view, and great food. I do have a few complaints though. First and foremost, is the Wi-Fi. It's awful, and hardly ever connected and when it did, you just had one bar, so the chances of anything actually loading were slim to none. And most times the Wi-Fi network would disappear all together! So we spent most if the week using our own data, so be prepared to do that. Next would be a noise complaint. On our third day there, we were very rudely awakened by ridiculously loud pounding sounds at about 830am. I called the front desk and they said, "Sorry, but there's construction workers remodeling the 10th floor." I asked for how long, and she replied she had no idea. It went on for two more hours that day. 1. Why didn't they let the guests know beforehand? 2. Why couldn't this have been done in the afternoon when everyone is already awake or out of the hotel?! This happened every morning for the rest of our stay, so no sleeping in on our vacation for us! Also, housekeeping came too early every day to clean the room (before the contruction would start so about 8) and we would always still be trying to sleep. So we found out earl Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff not friendly. Road Construction around the Imotel Missed breakfast first day because staff upon arrival didn't inform is that it will be located in 11 th floor instead of lobby like most motels For three mornings we were woke up by hammer sounds in the room above us The desk wasn't aware that they were working on rooms which started early each […] morning 7:30 am Now this was to be a relaxing get away for us but !!!

"Not bad at all..."
A little noisy...street traffic noise and pool noise but nothing we couldn't bear with for two nights. Great location, friendly staff, good breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two blocks from my business meeting, a beautiful v"
I'll stay there again, when I go back to Corpus next month.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Choose something else"
Ocean drive is a strip to race apparently. Pool has no wind barrier and isn't heated. Rooms do not have good sound barrier, especially with doors in between rooms. Why they would put family with two children under 3 next to young group of kids probably under aged drinking is beyond me. Breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staff is very accomodating."
Very accessible to the bay. Close to shopping areas, and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to marina"
Only problem due to road construction was difficult to get into hotel. I asked for wake up call at 5:30, we never did receive that call. You may advise employes that it is important to guests to get there wake up calls. I'm glad we didn't have an appointment.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was nice, and the staff was friendly. Arrive early to breakfast, if not there are not many choices. Kids and family enjoyed the trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The bathrooms were filthy!"
Bathrooms were gross. Hair and dirt and other strange things in the grout and corners in the bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent accommodation + staff = great stay"
Well kept hotel. Really nicely made rooms, clean surroundings, ample parking and very closely located to Marina. The beach too is walkable distance though tad longer walk. They serve excellent hot breakfast on top floor with great views. Staff are very friendly and very helpful. Good family place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel was clean but clearly dated. Staff was friendly and helpful and. Breakfast a plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location, excellent staff."
Hotel staff was top notch. We got in very late the first night. The staff had the keys all laid out and ready for us. Rooms were clean. Did not get a chance to try the breakfast due to our work schedule but heard other people talking positive about it.Genuine Expedia guest review
The view from our room was amazing. The employees were nice and professional. If we ever go to Corpus Christi again we would stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, older hotel"
Great little location, beautiful views, and this is what I was after when I booked this location. It was pretty much exactly what I was expecting: nothing more, nothing less. One bad thing was the construction going on around the hotel. Not the hotel's fault, just made it a bit difficult to get to the parking, due to detours. This is an older hotel, […] and it shows, however it was very clean. It did have an "older" smell to it, though. Rooms are pretty small. "Balconies" are very small, no furniture or anything. Staff was polite, but not overly helpful. One thing is that they have the BEST coffee in town down in the lobby! Good stay, great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will not be returning"
This was one of the worst experiences we have ever had. My husband and I were in town for the beach to bay marathon. We read the reviews and decided since we were only sleeping there for a night, it would be fine despite the not so great reviews. We were wrong. At around 1 am, our AC started making a high pitched squealing sound. People in our hall […] started coming out of their rooms to figure what was going on because it was so loud. We then had to shut it off for the rest of the night to get a few hours of sleep. It was miserable! We also had an incident during the day where we had to call maintenance. The guy arrived quickly and said that he needed to run and get a couple of things and he would be right back. We waited over an hour and a half and finally decided to leave and let front desk know we were tired of waiting. We returned a few hours later and the problem was fixed, however, he left his tools in the room. I would rather pay an extra $100 to stay in a nicer hotel and actually get some sleep. We spent $185 to not sleep and be miserable. What a waste of money! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were honestly shocked at how many homeless people hang around the area, they are strung out and talking to the wind nuts! A short walk across to some really nice restaurants. The oyster bar across the street was nice. Whataburger is across the parking lot on one side. The view on the north side of the hotel sucks because the tall bank buildings block […] any nice view, the other side is much nicer. We were on the 10th floor for the view, but realized that was a mistake when we figured out we were directly under the KITCHEN that starts cooking at 5am! Rolling big carts on tile floor right above our heads! Room 1011 has the elevators on one side, the gym on the other and the kitchen directly above! Ugh. The room was MUCH smaller than I was expecting. It barely fits the king bed with a foot on either side. Small dorm frig on the floor in the corner, microwave sitting on top of that, decent tv and a small desk. Nothing fancy at all about the room and/or especially the bathroom, but it was clean. Check in was at 4pm which was most inconvenient for us and the room wasn't ready by then anyway. After a long drive and getting there at 2pm, we wanted to freshen up before dinner time. Breakfast was good, hot and fresh. Pool was clean, but it was way too cold to do anything but dip our feet in. Since there's no wind block from the bay, it was too windy to be warm enough. Overall a nice clean hotel, but way over priced for what you are getting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

nice and clean, nice view of the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean comfortable great price"
We had room 208 which opens up to the pool. Great for kids. Really clean room. Friendly staff. Breakfast was great. Easy check in an out. Across street from restaurant /bars and coffee/gelato shop so no need to drive after a glass of wine.Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and comfortable stay"
A little overpriced - but the room was nice, the view was nice, location was great.... very clean and comfortable - and a good breakfast included. Staff was friendly and helpful enough - just a little slow at times. For the money charged - I would have expected something a little more upscale..... but all in all, a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Loves the location of the hotel! The continental free breakfast was the best we've ever had. Amazing selection!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nicely located, but avoid the construction"
The room was nice with great views. There was the issue of no hot water, only mildly warm to cold. The Breakfast area was a nice thing. Located near some of the restaurants in the area. Directly across was the water!! The construction was a minor issue.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
