My family and I went for the weekend for my moms birthday. We cannot say enough about the service we received from Ms. William's and her staff. Kimberley, Rob, Sean, and Rhonda were just a few of the employees who went above and beyond to make us feel 100% welcome and comfortable the whole time we were there. Breakfast was well prepared and attended all three days we stayed and the rooms were spacious and clean. If we are in the area again this will definitely be our hotel of choice!! 5 STARS!
I use to live in Corpus back in 1988, i figures that things might change after Hurricane Harvey & I was slightly caught off guard by what I see now to what I remember from 1988.
Anyways: Apparently I did not read the all the information on the website, I arrived slight early about 3:30-pm, being a former hotel front office manger myself rule of thumb check-in starts at 3-pm, the lady at the front desk I believe her name was Sandra welcomes me and advised that check-in doesn’t start till 4-pm but she would look and see if the room I booked was ready, she asked for my last name & locates my reservation, and once again welcomes me & thanks me for being a loyal Hilton Honors Member, she states the room is indeed ready & starts the check-in process, then the stinger, are you aware of of parking policy, I reply I’m sorry what ? She advise they have a parking fee of $10 per night, I was dumb struck & just agreed to it, once in the room I quickly looked it up, the parking fee is only listed on there website, all other website show free parking.
Nonetheless I paid it, my 1-bedroom suite with full size kitchen was indeed very nice, unfortunately the view out the window was a large pasture, the king size bed was somewhat uncomfortable but I finally managed to go to sleep after taking a warm shower.
They offered a full hot breakfast buffet in the morning but I declined to eat there and went to a near by Taqueria for steak & eggs.
All together my stay was good & if back in the area again I would stay again.
Best part there is a Walmart almost adjacent & I bought a few things to cook in the room since the hotels grocery room is over priced.
