"Not worth your money."
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 2, 2014
A La Quinta traveler | 
The staff was very helpful and courteous., but the room is not worth your money. They have very good service but bad maintenance. The room we stayed in had fungus on the ceiling especially the bathroom. Bathroom floor was slippery slimy. Beds are small, old and not very comfortable. Good location, but they really need to upgrade their facilities.

"Dirty, Old, Nasty and Too Expensive for what you get...Don't get"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Jun 30, 2014
Derrick P | San Antonio, Texas
Spend the extra money! My wife, our three grands and I went for a weekend to the beach. the beach was great the hotel was awful. Breakfast area too small, rooms dirty... oh did I say dirty, try filthy. Beds were old and sunken, pool was nasty and the night staff could not give me any information of local restaurants. That's why on some sites, they don't offer free cancellations. Don't book this hotel....spend the extra money. If you doubt me, go ahead.

"Friendly staff"

The Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful when needed. The room was clean but had an slight issue with gnats, probably a result of the humid climate. The beds were surprisingly comfortable given the price of the room.

"Not particularly nice or central to the attractions"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jun 18, 2014

This is not one of La Quinta?s nicer properties. It is an older motel-style hotel with three floors situated on a frontage road along a highway. The place is definitely past its prime. Our biggest complaint was that our first floor room?s ceiling was streaked with what looked like mold (and bad paint jobs to try to cover the apparent past plumbing leaks from the room above). Of our eight-night Texas vacation, the two nights here were the only ones where I woke up in the middle of the night congested and feeling like I couldn?t breathe very well. When getting here, It was easy to miss the hotel entry off the one-way frontage road because it actually shares an entry with the restraurant next door and it?s not very well labeled. There is another car entrance further south, but you?ll have to drive the full length of the property back north to get to the office. The hotel?s laundry ?room? was upstairs on the third floor and had no door, but was basically a tiny alcove in a very windy place with just one washer and one dryer. One thing we did like was that the table in the room was outfitted with multiple power outlets, which made it easier to charge the many devices we feel obligated to bring with us. A mistake we made is that Corpus Christi is a lot larger than we anticipated. If we had studied the map better beforehand, we would have determined this was not a very central location and is at least 12 miles from the downtown attractions like the Texas State Aquarium and the art museum. It is closer to the South Texas Botanical Garden and Nature Center and is pointed in the direction of Padre Island National Seashore, although that?s not very close. As for me, I?d make every effort to find an alternative before staying here again and I wouldn?t want Room 140!

"LQ CC South"

Candi B | Kerrville, United States
This hotel is nicely located, easily accessible. Was here due to the distance to TAMUCC. Room was not quite what we had expected. Ease of check in was great, only was disturbed to find Police in the lobby upon check in, and they were there a few days later as well. Not sure of the clientele the hotel hosts, but might consider passing on individuals that are not in a family atmosphere.
