I has to be in that hotel as a presenter for the TACVPO conference. The carpet was dirty, the room smelled like mold. The staff was less than friendly or helpful during the events and otherwise. I accidentally left my chiropractor pillow in the room and have called and left front desk Ashley a message and also housekeeping and finally...

We stayed at this downtown hotel for spring break. We wanted to avoid the crowds on the beaches of Padre. I hotel was going under renovations on the first and second floor. There is a nice deck with chairs to enjoy the bay. There is a small beach in front of hotel that is well protected by some jetties. Decent...

Our vacation was terrible from the start. Check in was at 4pm. Our rooms weren't cleaned and ready until 6pm. Within the first 20 mins in our old dingy room my 2 year old cut his foot open on a broken tile. I spent the next 5 hours in the urgent care getting stitches. The staff seemed unsure of procedures...

Stayed here the weekend before Spring Break. Booked online. Reserved double bed room with bayview. Not too much to say overall about the hotel. The best parts were the balcony, which gave us a nice view and allowed us to enjoy the cool temperature,and the beach,which was steps away. Nothing much else stood out. Check in was easy,but uneventful since...

The room I stayed in was a newer room however it did smell of smoke. Our family went to the pool and found cigarette butts next to one of the lawn chairs. I find the idea of an upgraded room where the floors were nice the furniture was just the old furniture painted white. At one point I called down...

The Emerald Beach hotel offered a great rate, great views and awesome customer service throughout my four day stay. The checkin was a breeze and the beach tiki bar was awesome! Indoor pool was very clean and well maintained. I hope to return to Emerald Beach Hotel on my next visit to Corpus Christi.

It took 50 minutes for our airport shuttle to pick us up. Upon arrival I checked into my room and there was urine still in the toilet and the floor was wet around it. I immediately called the front desk and was changed to another room that has stains on its sheets and a strong cigarette smoke smell in the...

RubbieSlippers, Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Emerald Beach Hotel. We are saddened with the amount of issues you have experienced at our property. I do feel some of the comments you mentioned are inaccurate. The "urine" found in the restroom is actually one our cleaning products that just so happens to reflect the same color....

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel! I didn't expect much since it is not new construction. It is older, but they have made nice improvements. The beds were clean, comfortable, with soft linens. The rooms were clean. Towels soft. Indoor pool and hot tub were excellent for the kids. It also has its own private beach. The baby crib...

My husband took my son and I to stay here for my birthday a couple weeks ago and we loved it. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was clean, and the bed was so comfortable.

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.
