My family and I were in Galveston for the 4th of July and were lucky to get rooms at this nice facility. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Because of the kitchen, we were able to cook breakfast each day and keep our drinks and food cold. The pool was clean and well maintained. The owner was very nice... More

We had a large group going on a cruise (including some elderly relatives) so we needed a reasonably priced hotel to stay at before our cruise. We didn't need a place close to the beach nor did we want to pay the higher prices. This was a good choice. This hotel was right off the highway as we drove in... More

Decided to stay here for a couple of nights whilst in Galveston, but unfortunately due to the Oil Spill in the Bay the previous week the hotel was busy and was unable as a Platinum member to get an upgrade, the young lady informed me that the Big Corporations had rented all the rooms.

We were in Galveston to attend a Christmas concert and to visit with some old friends. The hotel was very nice. The room was a one bedroom with plenty of space. We enjoy Candlewood Suites because they have a full kitchen. Service was excellent. They welcomed our dogs as well. We had a great time.

There were very few guests in the hotel. Asked for two extra pillows the next morning as the bed had three small, square, lumpy pillows and was... More
