Best Western Corpus Christi
Ranked #6 of 79 Hotels in Corpus Christi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 August 2017

Pros: great location, stayed in renovated room that had nice amenities (new TV, mini-fridge, microwave), got a good deal on a third-party site, fantastic free breakfast, staff was amazing in every respect (from specific room requests to my complaints), large balconies that face the water (no matter what side you're on), free covered parking

Cons: a few pests in the room (tho management offered solutions and offered to move me rooms), one out of the two elevators were down causing long wait times (and reading old reviews, seems like it's been down for some time), hotel could be noisy at times with other guests (but the hotel was full and there were pets/children).

Overall, the stay wasn't bad at all. It is not a perfect hotel, but there are plenty of perks that make up for the imperfections. If you book this hotel expecting a luxurious, knock-you-off-your-feet property, move along. But for a mid-priced stay with a few issues that aren't the end of the world, you'll do fine here.

I can't emphasize how terrific the staff was at every turn. They always had a smile on their face, they went out of their way to say hello and check in and gave my pooch treats often to make sure he was satisfied too. At breakfast each morning, staff members were perky and used the opportunity to check in on how my stay was (and it wasn't a passive conversation -- one specific issue was addressed from that conversation within the hour).

Room Tip: higher rooms are quieter (farther from the street) but elevator wait is long

If smiles make a difference at check-in, you're gonna love the Best Western on N. Shoreline in Corpus Christi. Their breakfast is a notch above most other chains who offer a free breakfast. The view from their lounge is positively beautiful as it overlooks the Bay and the Marina. Why stay center city when you can stay on the water without getting squeezed by a room rate?

There was ketchup (I hope that's what it was) splattered on one wall & the bathroom sink did not drain well. Water was left standing in the sink waiting for the next person...YUCK!! I did tell the front desk when we were checking out. Since we were just there one night & not in the room very much, I didn't report the problem while there. I do hope it is taken care of for the next visitor. The location & value of the hotel made it worth while for us.
