There's a sparkling swimming pool in the courtyard and a fitness room with cardio equipment so that you can stick to your workout regimen. A complimentary hot breakfast, a step above the usual pastries and coffee, is served by the hotel. The covered parking is free. Walking distance to shops and restaurants, the Best Western Marina Grand Hotel is across the street from the waterfront promenade. Not far from I-37, it's convenient to downtown and the beaches. Corpus Christi Beach is between one and two miles away, as are Texas State Aquarium and U.S.S. Lexington Museum. Golfing is a favorite local pastime, and two highly rated public courses, Lozano Golf Center and Oso Beach Golf Course, are a few miles away. Corpus Christi International Airport is 10 miles west. The waterfront location gets all the attention, but our guests say the Best Western Marina Grand Hotel offers a lot more, such as a "great" breakfast, "comfortable beds," a pool and Wi-Fi.
