"Down at heel area"
A dismal welcome with a surcharge to have a sea view room. What other purpose would you go to this place for? Presented my Radisson card for points ot be added but this was dismissed because I had bought the room through a "third party"! Apart from the initial reception the remainder of the hotel staff encountered were pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for the comments. Since there are a limited number of Ocean view rooms we do have a slight upcharge for them. I am sorry you could not get points for your stay, but that is a restriction set by Carlson. We hope you will come again and thanki you for being our guest. Dave R. GM
Right on the beach, next to the USS Lexington and the aquarium. Helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view of the USS Lexington, water and beach."
The deck was about 2feet wide and the air conditioner unit blew out hot air on to one end of it so it was essentially unusable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest. When you say "deck" I can only assume you are referring to the balcony? We do have a private balcony for all rooms that have two chairs, and, unlike other Corpus Christi hotels, all open from the gust room, and not an additional cost. the AC unit does vent to the Balcony but will cycle in and out and is not on at all times. We hope you will come visit again, we appreciate your business. Dave R. GM
staff was great, beds were just right, view from balcony priceless.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice staff, good location with beach, aquarium, battleship, and restaurant (Blackbeards). Looked like a couple things were being updated, like the empty hole in ceiling of lobby? Seemed like an older hotel with somewhat recent renovations. We would stay here again, no doubt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach The empty hole you referred o has indeed been filled. We were awaiting a hand sculptured light fixture that has been received and installed and we are very excited to add this wonderful piece of Art to enhance the beauty of the new look of the lobby. We hope you will come back soon to see this and the additional art work that has been added. Dave R. GM
Service was good, however all complaints I saw on the rating of this hotel are true. Rooms smell, air conditioner sounded like a Mack Truck, general vicinity of hotel is dirty, horrible parking. I will never go again......truly I only selected this hotel since it was pretty much the only one available since it was a last minute family weekend escap […] e.

Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest and for telling us about your stay. The AC units may seem loud because they are individual units versus central AC, and we check them on a regular basis to see they are working correctly. North Beach is a very safe and family orientated area perfect for strolling the beach, sights and restaurants, and for shopping; and we have not had any issues and welcome many, many families every year. We hope you will reconsider and visit us again. Dave R. GM
All was good. Location is awesome! Loved the view. The cleaness of rooms was good, great good too. Only bad thing i could say that was bad, but not a big deal, was the smell of room. It was a little like wet carpet n felt damp near a.c. Everthing else was good! Yes would stay again, at a lower rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful. Definitely would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything within walking distance!"
Really happy about this choice in hotel. Loved the overlook of the ocean outside the balcony. Two things that could have been better: 1. they need new shower heads the water comes out poorly and its hard to get the sand off your bottom half. 2. An air vent in Bathroom would help withdraw out the steam :) The staff was terrific, the Eating lounge was […] Great! Maid Service wonderful. Pool Great!!!! Loved our stay. We were able to walk to all attractions and for a special treat go eat at HESTERS inside the Art Museum next to the Science & Asian Museums which are all cheap. The French toast plate is HUMONGOUS and the overlook of the ocean is spectacular I got to watch the dolphins swim around the shrimp boat and that was by far Aw some!

Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest and for the compliments on the hotel and staff. We are actually working on new shower heads now and will be ordering these in the next weeks. Your comment is not only appreciated, but timely. We appreciate your business and look forward to your return. Dave R. General Manager
"Perfect location on the beach"

Nice location on beach next to Lexington and aquarium. Hotel was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"3 day 2 night trip with family"
Before I booked the hotel, I called to see if all the renovations were complete. I was told yes. When I arrived, the first thing I noticed was the outdoor umbrellas were missing the thatch (as if a storm had been through). Not very tropical, but not that big of a deal. The umbrellas on the beach were the same way but worse. However, I don't think the […] hotel owned the ones on the beach. Check-in was not a problem. When I arrived at my room, the first thing I noticed was the hole in the wall that someone had tried to repair (where the door knob hits the wall). Then there was this water stain that ran down the wall. A garden could have been planted on the smoke alarm. The air conditioner only semi-cooled when the window drapes were drawn and lights were out. The bathroom sink had an under mount sink that had mold around it. There was no ventilation at all in the bathroom. I was told all the beds had been changed to a pillow top. Mine was hard, no pillow top there! The pool bar was not open during the week. However, the view from the balcony was great (minus the moldy, plastic chairs with no table for drinks) and the location was ideal for the attractions my family and I were going to see. For the price, I expected more. I will not be returning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest and allow me to apologize for the problems you encountered. Due to the constant wind it is hard to keep the palm fronds in place on the pergolas, and we have plans to make changes in the entry area as well. The beds are Simmons Ultra Plush sets that were new this spring when we renovated and we have had many good comments, but we know beds are an individual preference. The pool bar is open daily from 1:00PM to 8:00PM and am not sure why it was not available to you but I will look into it. I know we can do better and would hope you will give us another opportunity to do so. Dave R. General Manager
"Convenient to all the sights of Corpus Christi"
The Radisson was clean and staff were courteous. The location was great right on the beach and close to the attractions such as the State Aquarium and the LexingtonGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok hotel, poor location"
The hotel is located within walking distance to the Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium. Which was nice. But there is NOTHING else around the hotel besides a few over priced souv shops. You have to drive at least 15 min to get to where "town" is so you can eat. The little place to eat in the hotel is the worst. Parking is terrible. Although I did […] enjoy the fact the hotel was older and renovated somewhat bc you can't hear everything in the halls and in other rooms like with new hotels. The front desk people also told my husband to go to North Padre island bc their beaches are better.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest. I was surprised at the comment there is nothing nearby: there are at least 4 restaurants within a half a block of the hotel and a number of other attractions as well. The drive to other restaurants or shops is anywhere from 5 minutes up but we feel the places around us will satisfy most needs. Dave R. General Manager
"Near the Bach and aquarium"
Had a pleasant stay at the hotel but it was many jellofish at the beach. It was good they had a pool at the hotel so the kids could take a swim there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach We appreciate you staying with us and thank you for the compliment on your stay. We agree that the Jellyfish seem to be on vacation the same time some of our guests are. We can't stop them but do provide medication to stop the sting if it happens. Thank you for being our guest and hurry back. Dave R. General Manager
Overall a pretty nice stay. Everything with the room was great except for a rust stained bathtub. The hotel was in walking distance of many good shops, restaraunts, the USS Lexington, and Texas Aquarium. Would definetly stay there again if I was to ever go back to CC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what was promised..."
The family room supposed to have refrigerator and it didn't, it was supposed to be ocean view, yes you could see it thru the side. Didn't like it, very pricy...I was expecting better....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest and allow me apologize if your room did not have a refrigerator. When we replaced the furniture we put the refrigerator in the cabinet at the end of the desk unit and you may not have seen it. If at anytime you were to experience an amenity missing please call guest service and we will provide that item or anything else you may need or have forgotten. We have a full supply of guest items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors and other items that we are happy to make available at not charge in order to insure your stay is comfortable. Dave R. General Manager
Loved the hotel but the beach sucked! Hotel was clean and very nice. Bar and restaraunt was nice to have obaite. Close tot blackbeards and Battleship Lexington!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room, Great price"
My stay was good, I was a bit disappointed with all the kids in the hot-tub at the pool area, wish there was an enforced age limit. Room was great, even with no view of ocean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to water"
The hotel had bad smell. The hotel restaurant food was terrible. Didn't think a chef could mess up breakfast but they did. Food was undercook and bad taste. Buffet food was even worse. We got better and cheaper food at Whatburger down the street. The pool was too small for the amount of guest and the people they had taking care of the bar area was even […] worse that the restaurant people. The couldn't mix a drink to save their lives. One bar guys sat their playing games on his phone while people were asking for service. I was one of the people asking for service as well. Never did get that drink. The pool towels was so small and thin it was of no use at all. There was not enough parking for all their guest. I was so disappointed in the Radisson which is a well know hotel. If you stay there be prepared its like a cheap hotel quality that is over priced. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach I am sorry you did not enjoy your time at the hotel. We have very good cleanliness scores so I am not sure why there would be a smell, we have not had that comment before but I am sorry that this was what you observed. The pool is heavily used and therefore a high number of children due to families on vacation. I will forward your comments about the food to the operator for her action. Thank you for telling us. Dave R. General Manager
It would have been the ideal beach location if not for all the jellyfish. The beach was nice but not many people were in the water because of all the jellyfish. Overall, it's a good spot and very close to attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean with a decent view of the ocean. Hotel description stated a sofa bed was included-it was a chair w/foot ottoman. Hotel restaurant food was decent but not worth the price of meals. Overall was pleased w/the location and being within walking distance of many attractions. I feel I was overcharged for my room though due to description of […] room was not accurate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach During our recent renovation we changed out the Sofa Sleepers to a single bed Chaise Lounge. The sofa sleepers are traditionally uncomfortable and we wanted to make this improvement. The room descriptions are a bit slow catching up to the internet sites, please accept my apology. Dave R General Manager
"Right on the beach"
The location of this hotel is hard to beat. It's right on the beach, which was even more important after my daughter was stung by a jellyfish. They were quick to provide an ointment for the sting at no charge. The breakfast buffet was pretty nondescript, and the wait staff was pretty slow in bringing meals. The hotel lobby and exterior are very nice, […] but the room itself was average. It was clean and comfortable, but could use an update. We were able to get this hotel midweek in June for about $130.

"Excellent Beach Acess"
Great hotel, right on the beach!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great place to stay very friendly staff ... this was our second stay in amonth we got 3 rooms and everything was perfect .. will stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel was great, injoy the ocean view. the water was warm so around 2 or 3 o'clock the jelly fish would come to shore so you needed to swim before that time. there were lots of shops within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Although we cannot control the jelly fish, we do try to let our guests know when they are present and give warning. The problem is they may be in the Bay one day and not show again for several days or weeks. We also recommend an easy way to get to Mustang Island where the jelly fish may not be present. Either way we appreciate you telling us and we will continue to make our guests aware. Dave R. General Manager
Overall we were quite happy with the hotel. It was very clean..nice room. Love that is was right on the each and walking distance to most of the things we wanted to see. Our last night, my grandson got sick in one of the beds. We called housekeeping and they were there within 7 minutes. They cleaned the bed, gave me extra plastic beds for his night […] clothes and were very sympathetic with him. They won major points in my book. The only down side for us was the cost of the breakfast buffet. $10 for adults and $8 for kids is a little steep for the basic breakfast foods. Parking can be a challenge. Very small lot for all those people. Our overall experience was a good one. I would recommend this hotel. Nice pool, right on the beach and close enough to all the good landmarks. You can leave your car and take the ferry boat over to the sea wall to play. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for being our guest and for the kind words about the staff. We agree that our staff is outstanding and your comments reinforce our beliefs. I hope your grandson is doing better. We did have a number of cargo containers in the parking lot to store the items for the renovation, most of which are now gone, opening more parking spaces; please accept my apology for the inconvenience. We look forward to your return. Dave R. General Manager
"close to everything"
it was close to everything we wanted to do!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely view, great staff, but don't eat breakfast"
We got two rooms for the five of us. The one on the corner is a family room which is very roomy, so we could have possibly all fit in just one room. Both rooms have balconies with fantastic views, well worth the top dollar you pay. And it's so convenient to dip in the water and then walk right back to your room to have a nice shower. The beds are very […] comfortable and the front desk people are really great. The reason I gave only a four star is because the breakfast buffet was quite a ripoff. We paid about $10 a person for some very limited selection, and a glass of juice is extra $3. Yes, it has lovely settings, but I would rather save the $70 we spent on a very mediocre breakfast for something else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice but under renovations"
Parts of the hotel was under renovation so there was painting going on in the hallways, etc. which we did not know about in advance. Also, the hotel's main restaurant was closed for renovation, again not mentioned on hotels.com listing. There was a bar/grill on the 3rd floor that had good food but was a bit pricey. Room was nice. Location very convenient. […] Good Mexican restaurant within walking distance just across the street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach We are excited to report that all guest halls are complete with new carpet, paint and lighting. All guest rooms are complete with new carpet, furniture, drapes, BEDDING, lighting and paint. We have a few details to complete on the main level, but have painted all public space, added new seating areas with new carpet and furniture (that includes plugs for laptops and phones), new lighting and additional art work on order. We have relocated the Bar to the main level and the restaurant is operating in its new location as well. We look forward to your return to see our great new look. North Beach never looked better!

"Looking FWD to our next stay!"
Eventhough the lobby was under renovation, the hotel was wonderful. The staff was so cheerful and friendly, from the front desk to the maids. To me, that is an indicator that they take care of their employees. The location CANNOT be beat! We parked our car and walked everywhere for 4 days. A restaraunt employee even gave my little boy quarters to play […] a Fooseball game. We had a great time, and will not waste our time staying anywhere but the Radisson on our next Corpus Christi vacation! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Corpus Christi Beach Thank you for staying with us and for the compliments. We work hard to see we hire the right people and then treat them well, your comments seem to prove that out and we appreciate you telling us. We anticipate the remodel to be completed in May and will be anxious for you to see to see our great new look.
"Walking Distance to area attractions. Convenient"
Hotel was being renovated so this was somewhat of an inconvenience. However, once the renovations are complete it should be fine. Our room was very clean. Our main complaint is with the Hotel Restaurant. We weren't greeted when we walked in. And barely greeted when we had to wave someone down to bring us a menu. The service was barely mediocre and the […] food was even less so. I get better service at fast food joints for 1/5th the price. My advice? Stay at the hotel. Eat somewhere else.

"Best Hotel In Corpus Christi"
I have stayed in numerous hotels at corpus christi ( I live in san antonio). All I can say about the Radisson is WHY DID I NOT KNOW YOU EXISTED BEFORE? It could have saved me a lot of headaches with the other hotels. I have stayed at the "Omni" "Bayfront Inn" "Quality Inn" "Holiday Inn" and "Embassy Suites" and none come close to the Radssion on the […] Beach. It is a great location the lexington is in your backyard literally. You can walk to the Texas State Aquarium and arrive there in 5 minutes. They have a private beach that well maintained I did not see any trash what so ever. Management goes out of their way to keep this place clean trust me I saw it first hand. A spring breaker threw a coke bottle at the trashcan but missed, knowing that she missed she stil didn't pick it up. I saw a manager look at us and then shook his head and picked it up himself. It was a great stay. I only have TWO complains. First do not get a room that has twin beds there is not enough room to do anything but sleep and maybe sit at a corner. I'm sure the King size rooms don't have this problem. My second complaint is that they are working on renovations they have a sign that says "sorry for the inconvinence but are are working on rennovations for your future stay". If there were the case you should have also dropped down the price. Everything else was flawless. Rita whom was our cleaning lady did an EXCEPTIONAL job at our room.

"Pros and Cons"
Pros: on the beach friendly staff hot tub shower spray outside to rinse the sand off clean room not far from grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Cons: No bathroom fan Must keep air on at ALL times (moisture in the air) Paid $20/night to upgrade to ocean view, the sea gulls had squawking sessions every morning at our window Restaurant prices too high It […] does seem to be a tad old (carpet, no fans)overall, this hotel met my expectations.Im easy t please, I mainly want a clean bathroom and the bathroom was great. Any staff that I spoke with was friendly and accommodating, especially the guy fromthe restaurant that brought our beers to the hot tub. he was great...can't remember his name (Robert?...) It was a sufficient enough place for us and we would stay here again if we ever go back to Corpus. it was our kids first time see the beach and we all had a great time! there were 11 of us that drove 9 hours and it was worth it!

The location was great. USS Lexington Museum, Texas State Aquarium and of course, the beach were all at the walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and clean hotel."
Was very impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel. Loved the beds and pillows. Such a comfortable place to stay. Thanks to all the staff who bent over backwards to ensure me and the kids were happy and content with our stay. Going back very soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed overnight for a family vacation. The hotel was as clean as it could be for a hotel directly on the beach. The pool was very nice and welcomed after being on the beach and seeing someone get stung by a jellyfish! It included a pool side bar and a hot tub. The room was clean but in need of some minor repair. An electrical plug by the sink needed […] to be changed out...the plug would barely stay in the socket. The bath faucet had a plastic piece that kept falling off. The front desk was very helpful. We arrived earlier than the check in. They were kind enough to take down my cell number and call me when the room was ready, which was about 2 hours before our scheduled check in. One problem I did have is that a hotels.com rep called the hotel for me and requested a second floor room, which she said was taken care of. When I arrived, the front desk clerk told me that 2nd floor was not available. We ended up having to stay on the fourth floor instead. Overall, a nice hotel for the price.

"Acceptable and On the Water"
The hotel and rooms are older. There's wear and tear due to the salty air, but the hotel is located on the water, which is convenient. This beach has coarse sand made up of crushed sea shells. It is not the sandy beaches of Mustang Island or Port Aransas, so be aware.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location, walking distance to sights."
Familty enjoyed stay, couldn't ask for better. Price was right, location was right on the money. Would go again, highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great view, easy access to the beach, just open the door and you get your feet in the sand. Balcony is excellent, perfect view to the ocean. Bar is good to , and nice to have it in the third floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what you think"
Most of the pictures of this hotel are outdated and do not represent the hotel now. If you are picking this hotel because it is a Radisson and has a full-service restaurant-both the service and food were mediocre. There was a major power outage (once during a storm and the second when it was sunshine and 90s outside) while we were there which meant […] we had no AC, lights, TV, restaurant, etc. That power outage resulted in us being asked to leave the hotel with no offer to help us find another hotel. There are very limited eating choices in this area. Stay on SPI Drive and come over to this area for a day trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
