I was a single woman travelling with 2 teenage girls.
Plus - they honored my request & made sure we were in a room close to the office. room # 102 to be exact
Plus - hard to beat the prepay rate of 75 dollars a night for 2 double bed suite
Plus - Check in smooth, complimentary cookies
Plus - updated exterior of hotel
Minus - blower going on the hallway carpet for the first 24 hours, strange smell, possibly
cleaner? not really unpleasant, but certainly smelly. the room itself smelled fine ...but if
it had smelled like the entire hallway we would not have stayed...
Minus - room was large enough for 2 double beds, but suite was somewhat of a stretch, small
couch was not even as large as a normal loveseat....
Plus - computer desk was nice, tv & stand, microwave & small refrigerator all good
Plus/Minus - The room was freezing cold ..we actually raised the temperature on the unit as far
as 84...but it NEVER stopped running. My hubby would have loved it but the girls &
Plus - Location is very nice. next to a lubys, in front of a Sam's ...Walmart conveniently located
across the highway. Easy to jump on SPID to head down to the beach or the crosstown
expressway to head downtown, plenty of nearby fastfood & sitdown restaurants...
Plus - pool was nice - see picture
Minus - we had checked in & immediately headed out for our tennis tournament. coming back
later that night & securing the room, i was somewhat distressed to notice 2 things 1) the
door lock thing was broken off & 2) it appeared that someone had pried the screen
above the ac unit in an attempt to get in the room (see pictures)
Plus - nice office area available with 2 desktop computers & a printer. I was able to actually
use one of the computers quickly & easily to confirm an email that needed to be taken
care of asap. (sorry did not connect to the hotels wifi with any of my own devices)
Plus - HOT breakfast was good & changed from day 1 to day 2....one day egg omelet, bacon,
with usual choices of cereal, bagels, hot waffle etc....next day sausage, egg, biscuits &
gravy with usual choices of cereal etc..
Minus - was a small roach in the bathroom area the first morning..didn't mention it to the girls but
was surprized to see it none the less.
Minus - Bed & pillows were very hard to me. I know the usual complaint is that matresses are
saggy, but truly these beds are like new or something...as they have very little give in
them. I can handle that, I just wish the pillows would not have been quite so firm.
The front driveway of the hotel was being worked on both days...it looks like someone was putting some serious money into making a very intricate driveway brick pattern. Obviously this hotel is still a slight diamond in the rough but it is easily the best deal I found in Corpus. Aside the weird lock break/window screen I felt completely safe in the parking lot & hotel itself.
