Pass this one by. A review of Emerald Beach Hotel
Our family stayed at this Holiday Inn in Corpus Christi for two days in March. This hotel is very run down. When we first got to our room we noticed a broken/burned lamp shade and the entire side of the box spring mattress exposed with the siding coming off. There wasn't an iron or a tub mat. When we called to have an iron brought to our room, it took three phone calls and 45 minutes for them to deliver one. At that time I had asked for more towels and the missing tub mat; they never brought this to our room. When we discovered this at 10:00 PM, I called the front desk, and the manager said I'd have to come down to the desk to get these items. Be prepared to bring toiletries, as they give you one small bottle of shampoo, no conditioner, q-tips, etc., that other hotels supply.
The beach is dirty and we didn't dare dine in their restaurant, so I can't give a review of that.
