A decent hotel right on the beach and close to downtown Corpus Christi
The Radisson Hotel Corpus Christi Beach may not be a luxurious property, but it’s about the nicest you’ll find right on the beach in close proximity to downtown Corpus Christi. The lobby and public areas are nice enough and were renovated in 2013. Some complain it's a bit warm when you walk around the lobby, as it seems to lack air-conditioning -- probably due to the fact that doors at the back end open right onto the outlying beach. It’s a nice surprise, though, to walk in this direction and find yourself so close to the water.
The pretty white sands lead up to aquamarine waters that are surprisingly tranquil. A number of thatch-roof shelters line the beach on hotel property and provide a respite from the Texas sun. The hotel’s small pool, overlooking the beach, also provides a refreshing break from the heat. A cabana serving drinks is open seasonally. Be warned, though, that during peak times the pool can get quite crowded.
Just north of Corpus Christi on a clean stretch of beach
The Texas State Aquarium and USS Lexington Museum are a quick walk away, as are small shops and restaurants. Other than that, you won’t find too much going on in this neck of the woods, as much of the area borders State Park beach lands. The Harbor Bridge separates this stretch of coast from downtown Corpus Christi.
Somewhat tired rooms with outdated decor, but comfortable beds and decent amenities
The rooms are about what you’d expect from a mid-range beach hotel, with somewhat generic-looking decor that's outdated (including oddly patterned drapes and upholstery), though there are some modern touches such as large flat-screen TVs. Further throwing off the decor are paintings of European seaside villages (in some rooms) that feel out of place in coastal Texas.
