There are many new hotels in the area nicer then Emerald beach but if you want a hotel that's literally on the beach then the emerald is it. It's been a hotel since about 1965 so the building is old but up to date. It's clean has good restaurant. Great indoor pool and rec area with small arcade. Ping pong...

I've actually never been to Corpus Christi before, but came down to meet my fiancé's family. It's a pretty laid back place, and this hotel is no different. I'm used to a fast paced life, so this was actually a very relaxing experience. We chose this hotel, because my fiancé said that it was famous locally. Her grandparents even stayed...

Went fishing with the family, and relaxed at the outside bar. I don't personally drink, but I had a burger and coke and watched the...

The hotel was decent and it was nice that it was right on the water. However our first room when we arrived was warm, I turned down the air and we got ready and headed down to the beach, when i came back up to grab something it was still warm, actually warmer than when we has left. I called...

I never believed in writing negative reviews, because what some may see as poor, another may see as rich. But for the reasons below, I just simply can't stay silent. My wife and I arrived last night (4/13) to stay until Sunday. We checked into a very musty room. And while we decided to overlook that part, 20 minutes after...
