Room was clean and very basic. Had to go to the office to get some ice, which came from their refrigerator. Location is excellent, nice area, just a basic motel. Great restaurant across the street and conveniently located near an HEB and other food options.

Extremely disappointed!!! This place is a dump and not worth a penny spent. Unfortunately we could not know what to expect since we were just passing by and it was really late. The rooms are dirty, the furniture is falling apart (literally), the AC unit is to small and it took at least 3 hours before the room was at a decent temperature to be able to sleep. There are light fixtures... yet they had no light bulbs, and to top it off like if it was not enough.... THERE IS NO HOT WATER!!!! It’s a shame that establishments like this are permitted to operate in this beautiful city of Corpus Christi.

The location is good, the owner is friendly, the room is big enough, the atmosphere was quiet, wifi was good, all interior in the room was oke, the bathroom was clean but the floor was very dirty, you wouldn't walk on it without your sandal or shoes and we found cockroachs, one dead and one on the wall.
