I am a "road warrior" and this is my very favorite spot of all the places in Texas that I go. I stay here whenever I am on business in Corpus - which is several times a month. The staff is amazing - from the housekeepers to the front desk folks to the managers. Richard Perez and David Moreno are...

I was a bit apprehensive at first because of reviews saying that it a bit outdated. We were set on a beachfront hotel that accepted our two dogs. That is exactly what we got. The stafff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect with many attractions nearby and the beach was clean. The hotel's decor was a bit...

Emerald beach hotel is at a great location, awesome for someone who wants to view sunrise and sunset and have an easy access to the beach. It's quite an older building, but still maintained. Good and close by restaurants.Nevertheless it was a fine stay. We stayed just for one night.

This is what we were looking for when we booked our Corpus trip. I don't care about new/old and this hotel is older, but it is clean and our experience was great. Everything worked perfectly and best of all is that it's right on the water! We asked for a balcony room overlooking the water and I was so happy...

Hotel location is right by the beach. Not many restaurants next to it, but several are within 20-30min walking distance. There is a bar on site and usually crowded with fun and laid back people in the evening. The indoor pool is surrounded by a dozen rooms, so the parents can keep an eye on the little ones, but it...

Decent hotel with access to beach which not many have on bay. Beach bar but hours are hit miss when we went. Nice staff and good bar inside. Dinner place there also with decent food. Papa johns delivers if you get a night you're too tired to leave like after a long flight. Shuttle to airport also available. Clean rooms...

I love this place. The rooms are clean, staff is friendly. The last 3 times we have stayed here people just walk into our room. I don't know if it is a glitch in the system that says out room is not booked. I first time it was in the middle of the night and a family walked into our...

We pulled it..the hotel was very old and out dated..we still checked in...and checked right back out..I refuse to pay 130.00 a night for a very old hotel, with dirty carpet, rusty elevators, and it smelled like roach spray with water leak stains on the ceiling. I'm not for sure how it received 4 starts.
