Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Corpus Christi
Ranked #9 of 80 Hotels in Corpus Christi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2012

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 &
I froze!
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.

Room Tip: lower floor rooms have best access to ice machines, exercise room , pool & business center.

Me and my family(2 children) just stayed here 6 nights. It was great from the check-in to the last day. Very close to chain resturaunts,luby's (right next door),Sam's Club(directly behind). Breakfast was great something different every morning, as well as bagels,waffles,fresh fruit and yogurt.The pool was very clean. Room did smell a little like mildew but not too bad.Housekeeping was great about cleaning when WE wanted it done. I would definitely recommend this Hotel,and will stay again!

This was the best bed I have ever slept in in a Hotel. The breakfast was hot and fresh every day and was a little different everyday! I would love to have the reciepe of the cream cheese mixture in the eggs one of the mornings we stayed. It was a little ways away from the tourist stuff but not so far you could not get there in 15 mins or less. There was a Lubys next door which came in handy for desserts as we would eat the large and wonderful breakfast, Lunch between 3-4 pm and then around 8 have a snack of pie! There was a movie theater across the highway and a walmart if you forgot anything. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The price was right for a short stay and the room was large!!!!! When we arrived there were 2 school buses parked outside so we were not happy about that but the kids were not heard at all once we were inside our suite! A big plus...no noise. There was a very inviting hot tub and swimming pool but we were there in the winter so did not get to enjoy this. There was an exercise room but we also did not use this. We were able to print out our boarding pass for the airport in the business room. We were very pleased with this stay and will be checking in again in the future.

Room Tip: We were in room 325 and could not have asked for better.

Note: There are more than one Hawthorne Suites in the area. We stayed the one on Soute Padre Island Drive.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back. It is a very clean, comfortable facility with a friendly staff. Breakfast was good and they have a well stocked evening happy hour during the week. Location is excellent, easy access to the freeway to South Padre Island or the Cross Town Expressway to downtown.
One thing I will mention is that their fitness room is very small. More than one or two people at one time and you will be stepping on each other. However the front desk lady gave me a heads up on a Golds Gym nearby. Its about 15 minutes from the hotel, but it is a very nice facility, and as most Gold Gyms they take walk-ins ($10 per day, $15 for two days). Its a much better option for a good workout.
All in all though the Hawthorne Suites is a nice hotel and I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: The suites have plenty of room. The suite layout was identical to Country Inns and Suites but I don...
