“Yes, It's older, but**”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

Yes, this is an older property, but it is very clean and the rooms are modern, bright, and the staff is very friendly and wants your stay to be a good experience. Property is on Blanche Moore Drive off the east bound feeder road of state highway 358 or SPID. You are going east bound even thought the feeder is alongside South Padre Island Drive. Pool and hot tub looked to be clean thought we did not use them. Only one elevator and it is on the small side so be advised. Hallways and rooms are clean and have been updated. Breakfast is from 0600 to 1000 and the selection is very good with hot and cold foods. Free local paper if your quick enough in the AM. Overall a good value and we would stay here again while visiting relatives.

Room Tip: rooms face east and west. east side you have a view of SPID and the shopping area and neighborhood...

I stayed at this hotel for a week and found the staff to be friendly. The hot breakfast was a big plus and it always met expectations. It also was nice to have hot coffee in the morning and at night. In the evening, they also set out cookies and lemonade. There was an indoor pool. It was not huge, but there was enough space for families with children to enjoy themselves. Also, there was a hot tub by the pool. Though not my thing, it was certainly unique and may appeal to someone.

As concerns the hotel, I found it to be clean for the most part. However, my bed sheets and pillowcases simply smelled of sweat. It wasn't terribly strong but present enough to be mildly disgusting. But in truth, I really can't complain here because I gave the hotel management no opportunity to amend the situation. The same goes for the children (I assume) who were running up and down the halls at night and knocking on doors.

I also did not like the location of the hotel. It is sandwiched in a highly commercial area and a somewhat sketchy looking neighborhood. You can also read the last sentence as a general synopsis of Corpus Christi itself. I assume that the Hampton cannot help that it is located here. Nevertheless, if I had to make the decision again, I would not pick this hotel.

Stayed here for one night. We had a "studio suite" that was the smallest we have ever stayed in at a Hampton Inn. It was even smaller than some regular hotel rooms... I almost felt claustrophobic. We thought the price for the room was way too much for the small room that we got. The hotel is clean - it is convenient to shopping and restaurants. It is an old hotel that has been somewhat refurbished. Breakfast was ok with the pre-made cheese omelets. Front desk staff were friendly. Probably would not stay at this hotel again unless there were no other Hilton properties available.

This was one of the cleanest hotels I've stayed in. We chose it instead of the hotels at the bay front and beach because they all had negative ratings on cleanliness. Our kids have asthma and we couldn't take any risks with that. I'm glad we chose this Hampton. The beds were very comfortable. There were several breakfast choices, fruit, omlettes, and very roomy eating area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Only 7 minutes to downtown Bayfront. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the small pool and hot tub. I was very impressed with the cheap price I got through bookings.com. Via price line. I will stay at this one again.

Staying at this Hampton Inn, was like staying in my own home without having to do any of the work.
My room was very,very clean. Plenty of linens in the bathroom. Any and all requirements were taken care of by a person with a smile on their face and many freindly words.
The best part of the stay was the morning breakfast. The food was good, something for everyone. But it wasnt the food, it was the breakfast room attendant, Dianne. She had a smile on her face that made you happy to go in and partake of the meal. She gives 100% to her guests, making you feel as though you are her only guest. Every word she spoke was a kind word. I was there over the Memorial Day weekend with the hotel completely full, which in turn caused the breakfast room to be full to its capacity and with that many people making demands, Dianne with her smiling face meet the demands of every person who was asking for something . Kudos to this Hampton for going above and beyond their duties.
Also, the manager was also outstanding. Loved the fact that she allowed a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society to be held in her parking lot to be held. So stay at this Inn in you want more than just a room to sleep in. This is a place to go if you want to feel like you are staying at a very dear freinds home.

Room Tip: Ensure you have a fridge or micro in room.
