“Wonderful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

My husband and I stayed here about 3 years ago and were very happy with the Manager Ketan Bhakta and his staff! We came back this year and have to say that this stay was even better! The rooms have all been remodeled, no more icky carpets! Tile is so much nicer, cooler and any spills can be wiped up completely, not like carpeting. We dealt with Rice, Sarah and Joe, the Front Desk persons, all very polite and professional. The housekeeping staff were all eager to help make our stay comfortable and clean. They are doing some major remodeling in the lobby area now and we can't wait to see how that will come out. Breakfasts were great, hard boiled eggs, toast, biscuits and gravy, hot cereal, cold cereal, even waffles!
The hotel is located 12 miles from the National Sea Shore, which we enjoyed walking everyday! There are plenty of places to eat along the Island and the hotel is close to a lot of other attractions, like Mustang Island and the USS Lexington.
Thank you very much for a perfect stay!

It was our 2nd trip to Corpus Christi North Padre Island...We stayed at Holiday Inn the first time and was quite content with our stay. But with our 2nd time in Corpus Christi we decided that we just wanted a place to sleep before our fishing trip. Boy were we surprised!!! When we arrived 1/22/12 we were aware that they were doing some renovations. We got a room on the 1st floor and the moment we opened the door our first thought was...WOOW!!! Is this the room we paid for or did we get an upgraded suite?! It was the first time I saw such high quality ceramic tile used in an actual hotel room floor. Who does that? Smart hotel owners that's who! There was no awkward mystery stains in the carpet which most hotels suffer from...Kudos and great job on all of the renovations. The room we stayed at had a nice sized bathroom facility, clean towels, sofa, chair w/ tables, TV, and even a large vanity area. The single serve coffee machine was a nice touch. The king sized bed was clean and was very comfy. They had an older TV console but it wasn't such a bummer. It had a neat antimicrobial remote controller. Also the free internet was a nice touch. We were able to book online since we were sure of what date we will arrive...so I didn't think twice to book it for the discounted price online. If you are positive on the date you will travel I definitely recommend booking online for the no refund price. It's literally almost 2/3 less than the average room price! I will be staying at this Best Western each and every future trip we will be making at Corpus Christi. Our check in was as smooth as our check out. The staff was nice and friendly! Professional, professional, professional!!! :) Did I mention the beach was literally a 5 min walk away? There's also plenty parking spaces and a well maintained pool facility.

Room Tip: Book online at the main Best Western website for the best deals!

As our first visit to this hotel, we were very impressed for the price. The rooms are very spacious and also clean. They are doing some construction which is kind of loud and doesn't smell very well but we did not let this effect our visit. However, there was a downside... As we were getting ready to go out for the evening and showers were taken, the housekeeper proceeded to walk in without knocking and yes did get an unexpected scene. She took off running to the front desk. Well after we finished collecting ourselves from that event. We thought it should be mentioned to the front desk clerk so maybe a message would be passed along to knock before entering a room you know "just in case".. Well when we went up to mention it, to them it really didn't seem like a big deal..we were kind of disappointed with that, they did say they would mention it to the manager but I don't see that happening. So we went on about our evening and at check out we thought we might just see if it was noted and discussed and the other front desk clerk just wasn't very concerned either. Now with all of that being said.....the hotel is a great place to stay just stay in the bathroom to get dressed before walking out.

Room Tip: Always go with "name brand" hotels....and check ratings and photos online

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.
I would like to apologize for your unexpected incident.
The front desk informed me of the incident the next morning, and the issue was immediately addressed with the housekeeper. I do apologize for not relaying this information to you before you departed.
Once again, I sincerely apologize for that particular part of your stay.

I did notice that your overall experience at our hotel was pleasant and hope you choose to stay with us when you visit North Padre Island.

Thank you

I had to work on the Island for a week, and picked the right hotel. This property is clean, and comfortable. My room has a vaulted ceiling which makes it feel like home. Free internet, fridge, and comfortable bed. The staff was cordial and the breakfast was better than eating at the restaurant (eggs, kolachies, biscuits and gravy, waffles, and fruit. Of course, coffee, milk and juice.) Didn't get a chance to swim, but the pool is clean.

I will return soon. Keep up the good work.

Sincerely,

Cesar

Originally chose this hotel for proximity to the beach and to be honest to keep expenses down. I was pleasantly surprised to find the rooms spacious and clean with vaulted ceilings. Pool was great, well maintained. Breakfast included biscuits and gravy as well as a kolache along with usual fruits, waffles, etc. Management was very helpful pointing out local dining and helped us with every thing we needed. Parking available for trailer which is very useful when you have your boat along!
