My husband and I stayed at this hotel last night and it other than the nice exterior of the hotel, it felt like I was staying at a value motel. We paid $139 total with taxes for a suite room which was roomy. However, the bed was not as comfortable as some of the other hotels I've stayed in (Hampton, Homewood, Embassy Suites). And the shower head did not spray water out, rather it just fell straight underneath the head I'm guessing due to lack of water pressure?? But the real bummer came when we realized getting ready for bed that we'd forgotten our tube of toothpaste. My husband walked down to the front desk since the sign in the bathroom says they have emergency toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, etc) for guests. Well they didn't have any toothpaste! So he had to drive to Walmart at 11:15 pm to buy some toothpaste. Then he woke up this morning with a sever migraine (which he gets about once a year) so after realizing I had taken my bottle out of purse at home, I called down to ask if their guest shop had an individual pkg of Advil, Tylenol or any pain reliever again the answer was no!! What hotel does not have this kind of stuff? Even motels that charge $50/night have stuff like this for purchase. So once again I drove to Walmart at 7:30 am to buy a bottle of Ibuprofen. It was very disappointing and frustrating to pay that much for a room at a brand of hotel that advertises how great their service is. One other thing that stands out is I walked down to get a cup of coffee from their breakfast room at 9:45 and it was already closed even though the sign said it was open until 10:00!! Again irritating! This is the first time I have ever been so disappointed enough to feel compelled to give a hotel a bad review. I could have stayed at the Omni Hotel or Embassy Suites in Corpus for less than what I paid here and gotten a full cooked to order breakfast and better service!! Spend your money elsewhere!
