Where to stay in Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi offers an array of lodging throughout the city. Seaside condos, hotels, and motels clustered around the northern point of North Padre Island and spread along Mustang Island offer views over the Gulf of Mexico, and you can also set up a tent or park an RV at one of the campgrounds on the latter. An additional cluster of hotels, motels, and cottages sits along the west side of Corpus Christi Bay, providing convenient access to both the water and many of the city's prime attractions. The numerous national-chain hotels and motels lining South Padre Island Drive serve as viable options if you plan to divide your time between the barrier islands and downtown.

  • This is one of the nices beaches in North Padre. We visited a year ago and decided to come back to the exact same spot this year with our entire family. The only issue is that folks did not obey the p...  more »
  • Nice facility and educational program for the entire family; however, a better job should be made to clean all the trash that drifts on the beach. Seaweed is natural; a nursery and habitat for many se...  more »
  • This was our second time to Malaquite beach. The beach had quite a bit of seaweed this time, but was clear in the areas where you camp or swim. We enjoyed our experience. Only 15-20 people ever swimmi...  more »

  • Our first visit here, but it was a great experience. You can walk or drive to beach areas. They have bathrooms nearby, convenient. Overall, it was very nice.
  • So much fun here. Me and my family go boogie boarding all the time!
  • “Beauty beyond Corpus” The beaches here are very clean. Beautiful to watch sunrises or sunsets. Great to just spend the day loafing around a very clean beach. There is a Visitor's Station there with some hands-on stuff for the kids, showers, and a quickie mart to replenish food and drink before the short trip back to Corpus. So worth the short drive.
  • The Malaquite Beach tryPadre Island National Seashore is just amazing in the night especially with tiny crabs and turtles.... Wow. Lifetime experience. It was scary in the beginning after the darkness, but later we had a wonderful stay almost alone, only 3 of us. Need to be careful because there is no internet connection possible at all, not even a cell phone signal.
  • last natural barrier left in the 🌎 so please take more out than what you bring in! Meaning pick up any trash you see! Home to the kemp Ridley turtles which are going extinct please report any turtles or 🐢 eggs! Enjoy and take care of our 🌎.
