I almost cancelled due to terrible reviews, but I was unabled to because it was a nonrefundable booking. From the outside it looks dilapidated, but to my surprise the inside was vintagely beautiful. My kids loved it, the room was spacious , comfortable beds and very clean. They charge $10 for parking, but I didn't mind it. Great experience.

Close to the beach

The hotel staff was rude (including the front desk manager) they checked us in an hour late. We reserved 2 rooms, and they gave us our room numbers, when we went to check out they said that we were in different room as if it was our fault they made a mistake. They don't have enough staff for summertime never going back to that hotel!!!!

Fourth of July Visit

The place was okay for the price. We had to pay extra for parking and for extra towels. Our room's window faced the parking lot. I did like being able to keep an eye on my vehicle. I had trouble using their wifi and gave up. The place was simple and comfortable. It gave me a feeling of going back in time because of the way it looked. It almost seemed as if we were experiencing a piece of the past.

What a shame

This was once a very nice hotel. Years and lack of maintenance and cleaning are taking a toll. The bathroom was dirty, roaches crawling around, beds were hard and the window unit AC was insufficient to cool the room.

Bayfront critters by the beach

When we arrived the staff was very welcoming and informed us of the various tourist attractions. The exterior and interior of the hotel you can see was very old and needed renovations. Once we were checked in we headed straight to our room. There we were greeted by a family of roaches that were already dead, but it appears as though the housekeeping staff forget to pick them up on the way out. I immediately went back downstairs and informed the staff about the problem. Housekeeping quickly took care of the situation, but no guest wants to see this entering their room especially for the amount of money that was spent on an outdated, roach infested hotel. Even the public restroom on the first floor had roaches. I will never stay at the Hotel Corpus Christi Bayfront hotel again. The staff was plesant and attentive but I'm not paying for extra roommate critters. In addition, I was unable to receive a refund on the extra guest fee since my friend was sick and unable to make it. Considering what I had to encounter in my room I should have been at least compensated for this fee. My trip to Corpus Christi was awesome but my accommodations were horrible I was not a happy camper at this hotel.

Not the corpus memory you want

This is a very run down hotel. Rough crowd hanging around outside. Bright spot was the lady at the desk. She tried to make me feel welcome.
