Emerald Beach Hotel, Corpus Christi
Dissapointed very old and dirty
I am disabled had a room with no elevator access , in a different building , was told only room with balcony and double beds, there were very few visitors , was told by another guest it was pretty empty on there floor , parking lot was empty , but we got sent to the old dirty building , will not recommend or ever stay again big mistake , very old hotel with old bedding and mattress with stains was glad I brought my own pillow and sheets, bugs in room , the front desk people were nice but the facility was dirty the free coffee pot was dirty , had fruit flies every where around it at front lobby , Very limited buffet only for breakfast . I was disappointed , everything seemed so old and dirty, next time I will stay somewhere else and let my friends know of my experience . Not sure why we were sent to the other building , but I have my suspicions , if I could have gotten my money back I would have but didn’t want to cause a scene . Live and learn .

The hotel is older but well kept. Our room was very comfortable, the staff were great, and it was nice being able to walk out straight onto the beach.

Hotel was decent. The beach was dirty and so was the water. There was a lot of trash floating by the shore.
