The hotel is right across from the beach. However, I found two live roaches in the restroom!!! The room was decent size and had two queen size beds. The carpet was dirty and stained. My niece was walking barefoot and her feet were black after 30 minutes!!!!

Maybe the nastiest dirtiest room I've ever stayed at. And I wasn't alone, as several huge cockroaches were there. I got a little water from the shower on the floor. Attached pic was the towel floor mat I used to dry the 5x5 floor.

It is near the beach so that's a positive. Also, it had a decent, clean bathroom. We didn't have a choice but to take a smoking room & you could smell the smoke & the deodorizer they use to try to mask it; both of us got very congested and headaches. The carpet and chairs were stained and dirty. It... More

If you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere. This is a clean mom and pop motel with the friendliest, most helpful housekeeping staff I've ever encountered. The rooms are spacious but dated, and the free continental breakfast is on the small side but sufficient. But let's face it, you don't stay here for amenities - it's all about location. The... More

Great pricing and right in front of the beach. Clerk at front desk was very helpful and friendly. The house keeping was very attentive. Room was clean and spacious with microwave, mini fridge and stove. A/C worked great, a little too good if you ask me. I was freezing! My husband enjoyed it. No breakfast though :(

Stayed in room 110 and my son and daughter woke with bedbug bites and I woke up with one live one on my chest ! Told management and they didn't look surprised, and was told they'd "investigate" despite bringing the live bug and my son with the bites. Never again will I ever stay there the first time in 10...

1st time to Corpus Christi. I just needed a place to lay my head - wasn't expecting much. I really hand it to this un-assuming place. Clean, and everything you could want. I think I paid $69 (off season). Oh .. the Ocean is across the street! Nice people.

“Hotel faces sideways to beach. Only room 201 has a view of beach from inside the room. We payed a little more for this room, and we requested it while making reservation. Room 201 has a counter with 2 bar stools at it, just for looking out the window at the view. THERE ISN'T A FITNESS CENTER, OR RESTAURANT, SO THEY ARE NOT TERRIBLE- JUST MISSING.”
