... tornado touch down near Alice, Texas. It was amazing how fast we found the little tiny town of Alice, Texas on the map, started to track the path as the news gave us updates, prepared ourselves for a fast “escape”, and watched as the rogue threat found its way skyward. Afterwards, we thought to ourselves, if a tornado comes close to us down here, where in the hell are we going? Trying to get off an island with 10,000 other cars trying to do the very same ...

After a brief time, we continued on our way to the main area. This is where the professionals were working. I was kind of disappointed since they all were still sculpting. Guess tomorrow is when they will be finished. I think they are working throughout the night to finish them, but I think I got some good pictures anyway.

We walked around for a little bit then Robin took Julian to the part of ...

... little town, "The Island" and visited a frozen yogurt shoppe. It was really good. I had Key Lime Pie and Salty Caramel Pretzel with a bunch of toppings.

By the time we came back to "G/G", it was almost 3pm. I sat outside and read for a while and Bob did some computer work. Pretty soon it was time to go to Attitude Adjustment time, but first I had to ice my cake (I should win the prize ...

... watch SAVING MR. BANKS. Since we have already seen it, we decided not to stay, besides, I had a cake to make for the contest tomorrow evening.

Tomorrow the rally continues with lunch and dinner. Afraid that these next few blogs will not be very informative with few or no pictures (like today). It's kind of hard to embellish eating, which is mostly what we do at this gatherings. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel Corpus Christi Beach

    Nice view, bad maid service

    from

    Spent four nights here 5/19 - 5/23.

    Not your usual Radisson

    from

    I have stayed at many Radisson hotels around the country and in fact have many points on my rewards card. But this Radisson was not up to their standards. The hotel was run down and not the cleanest. Most of the Radissons have excellant resturants - we ate lunch the 1st day there and never ate there again. The hostess was busy reading her book and told us to seat ourselves. After standing over us to get our order out of the way while commenting about her bad legs she couldn't find the cook and complained she might have to make it herself so we were going to have to settle for that ( We were the only ones in the resturant besides 5 members of the hotel staff who played cards for at least 2 hours. They were there when we first went to the pool, during our lunch and after we finished we left to the pool and they remained).

    Wonderful

    from

    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Radisson last summer and we will be returning this year with our 1 year old son.

    Extremely disappointed

    from

    We were extremely disappointed with the hotel. The phone didnt work, there was dirt on the floor of all areas, a stale odor was present in all areas, the faucet couldnt be turned in the bath as it was disconnected from the turn valve, there was a very foul odor in the hallway which smelled of sewage and in addition our friends rooms toilet didnt flush well and they were afraid to use it. We moved to another hotel the next day after our room had been changed once the first day because the phone was out of order.

    ABSOLUTLEY LOVED OUR STAY!!!

    from

    I just wanted to say whoever wrote the review about thier stay and they were on the 3rd floor couldnt have been more wrong...about thier tv going out, it looking rundown, with bird "DUNG" everywhere. Me and my fiancee went for our two year anniversary and had a WONDERFUL time!!

    The only thing that I would say is wrong with this hotel is the staff.... the room service was ok but the lady who brought the food was very un-appreciative of me giving her what i would say is a pretty good tip for just having to come upstairs and me being a delivery pizza driver. (???) and of course the young girl up front who was just rude.

    but thats all I have to say! thanks radisson!

    A Pleasureable Stay

    from

    The in-room jacuzzi, evening romantic views of the USS Lexington on the ocean, and hotel-to-beach access made our visit very memorable! The walking-distance seafood was great! We're going back with more family!

    Somewhat disappointed

    from

    1. When we initially checked in, we were assigned a third floor room which was bayside, BUT it overlooked a projecting roof area of the hotel which very much marred the view of the room. Since our reservation had been in place for several months and we had specifically requested a good view overlooking the bay, we requested re-assignment and were relocated to the seventh floor which made for a much nicer view. HOWEVER, the third floor bayside room views are NOT good!2. Although we fully completed all requested information upon check-in, including our vehicle description for the parking lot, we were initially not given any parking ID tag nor were we even informed that this was necessary. Our only clue to this was when we noticed many OTHER cars in the parking lot showing pink tags on their dashboards and we later questioned the situation, at which time we were then given a tag. We were informed that our car could have been towed without the tag.3. The hotel in general, is more run down than was anticipated (it was advertised to have been renovated a few years ago). The entire hotel, including lobby and hallways, has a somewhat unpleasant and stale odor. The large bay windows around the hotel building are dirty. The third floor lounge area would have a beautiful view of the ocean were it not for the bird dung everywhere. Our room was not particularly clean. Upon first entering the room, a dead roach was found lying on the floor. The bathroom floor had embedded dirt which appeared as dark streaks and spots in the tile. The bedspreads are very dingy making them appear unclean. There is no soap dish or caddy in the bath. The water pressure in the shower was too low (although temperature was fine).4. During the entire duration of our three-night stay, reception on television was poor on at least half the channels including HBO. We notified hotel staff of the problem on the morning of our first full day of stay. A maintenance man was sent up within several minutes of reporting the problem who was quite amiable but unsuccessful in fixing it. He mentioned that poor weather could be the cause; however, the weather changed several times during our stay and the situation remained the same whether sunny or raining. The maintenance man said that the problem would be reported to the cable company, but despite subsequently questioning this matter TWICE with hotel staff, we never did receive an answer as to whether this was done. We left word with the hotel operator regarding this matter, AND on the evening of the second day, we left a voice message on the designated Executive Office phone for a manager (or someone in that capacity) to call us back. As of our departure two days later, we had not heard back from anyone and the TV problem had still not been fixed.5. During this entire holiday weekend, we could never see that the swim-up cabana bar (advertised for this hotel) was ever open or manned by anyone at any time of the day or night.6. Lounge on third floor had an excellent and personable attendant. The atmosphere would have been excellent had it not been for the dirty windows AND exceptionally loud music during the prime of the evening. Music is fine but this volume was not conducive to a relaxing game of pool.7. On one of the days of our stay, our child sustained a minor jellyfish sting on the beach and I checked with the hotel gift shop to see if they might have some vinegar or meat tenderizer substance that they could SELL us. We were advised by the gift shop clerk that we could obtain this from the front desk (as we understand is very routine for many Corpus Christi hotels to offer as a courtesy to their guests). Upon checking with the front desk, however, we were declined this request and advised that hotel management was no longer allowing the dispensing of these products. Although we can understand any concerns (liability or otherwise) the hotel might have regarding this practice, we felt it was somewhat of a discourtesy to customers to not even have this available for purchase in the gift shop (especially in light of this common problem on the beach). Instead, we were turned away and told to go to the nearest 'convenience store.' Thanks a lot, Radisson.We feel that there was a problem at the management level of this hotel, and have to question whether one was ever even around during the entire time of this holiday stay. We will probably stay at another hotel next time.

    Is there a manager?

    The hotel and the amenities were ok. Everything was a little rundown but you get what you pay for. My big problem with this establishment was the customer service. First of all I have to say that I don't think that anyone was running the hotel and that it was only the teenagers behind the counter. Anytime anyone would come to the front desk for a question, the counterpeople were either on personal phone calls or talking with each other and seemed bother whenever you had a question.

    Fantastic! Beautiful Hotel, Great Service.

    from

    Fantastic experience. We really enjoyed the location, condition of hotel, service. All was wonderful. My family and I will return.

    Beautiful

    from

    This was my favorite vacation spot as a child and still today. We always stayed in the beachfront hotel section. These rooms are the ones closest to the beach. They have a roomy balcony where you can rest and feed the seagulls. The beach isn't the cleanest water in the world but is still very soothing. The hotel has excellent room service and restaurants. It also has a large swimming pool and kiddy pool plus a wonderful gift shop and kite museum. Corpus Christi has many tourist attractions itself so you don't have to stay in the hotel all day, including the U.S.S. Lexington that is walking distance from the hotel. I think this is the best and only hotel that is located on a nice beach in Corpus Christi.
