This hotel was a pretty standard suite type hotel. We were surprised to find that it was tucked away at the end of 61st street without any view of the water. A drive is required to find any kind of restaurant or thing to do. I should have paid better attention because they did not have a breakfast either, just... More

Friendly welcome when we arrived. Beds are comfy. Good tv and internet. Easy to find from highway. Pool was too cool to swim in. Big bathroom and nice shower. There was a nice table and reclining chair as well. Nice cooktop and large fridge.

While not on the beach, this is an economical place to stay in Galveston, and the staff is great. Usual Candlewood amenities and experience. Definitely recommend as a place to stay in Galveston. This was a winter business trip so was not looking for the beach experience, just a comfortable spot for the night. Fit the bill perfectly!

We picked Candlewood for a 3-night pre-cruise stay in Galveston based on price & reviews and were quite satisfied with the facility. This is not a new hotel but is in good condition and well-maintained, and is conveniently located with shopping & dining options nearby. The rooms are well equipped as "housekeeping" units with full kitchenettes. They have a convenience... More

We were visiting relatives in Houston from the UK in late September and decided to pay Galveston a visit, probably influenced by Glen Campbell! Despite the 35c temperature apparently summer was over so the Island seemed quite quiet but a relaxing spell was what we needed after Houston. The Candlewood suites fitted the bill perfectly. From checkin to departure everything... More

Even though I am a former resident of the island, this was my first time staying at a hotel while there. This was the most peaceful stay i have ever had. The staff was super nice, and even though we were by the freeway, we heard nothing. The rooms were very clean and stocked with everything we needed. So it... More

Very nice room. Has a full kitchen, a large closet and the most friendly staff ever. We stayed before leaving on a cruise and the front desk girl on night shift was wonderful. Gave us easy directions and even explained how to get around Galveston. I will come back for sure!

Just one night but room was great. It is close enough to everything and very close to cruise pier. Room was very clean and was the rest of the hotel. Staff very friendly. Loved how our room was very cool because it was hot while we were there. The only draw back is the small bed. Doesn't offer king size... More
