Corpus Christi Motels - The Best Corpus Christi Motels

beach inn texas gulf

Corpus Christi is one of the most popular coastal cities on the Gulf shore of Texas. It is the seat of Nueces County and has an estimated population of 416,376, which makes it number eight by population in the state. The city’s nickname is “The Sparkling City by the Sea,” reinforcing the importance that tourism plays on the economy. While most visitors are there for the beaches and vacation, Corpus Christi attracts visitors also because of the Naval Air Station.

While many visitors like to stay in full-service hotels, many prefer the simplicity and low-cost of the roadside Corpus Christi motels. Many beachfront motels in Corpus Christi cater to beach-goers, fisherman, and business travelers alike. These motels can be found on the beach, along I-37, and near the airport, as well.
