I am not sure what is up with some of the negative reviews. I enjoyed my stay at the Scottish Inn, I would not hesitate to stay here again. Sam the owner and his wife was very nice and helpful. The hotel looks like it has been renovated recently. The rooms are decorated very bright and cheerful, nice comfortable beds.... More

Owner takes great pride in this hotel. Independently owned, not part of big chain. Room simple but bright & cheerful with comfortable bed, small table and chairs. Refrigerator, microwave, big flat screen TV. Very close to ferry. We felt very cozy and comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Short drive to most attractions but very reasonable price! We would stay here... More

I was hesitant when I read some of the reviews on here. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by the front desk and they were nothing but courteous and helpful. We received a map and tips for taking the ferry over to Port Bolivar. The room was nice. You can tell they have been doing renovations on the... More

Recently stayed at the Scottish Inn before leaving on a cruise. The room was clean and very large, the service from the manager (apparently former owner) was great. He offered to take us to the cruise port at no cost and was always at the desk willing to help out. The only downside to the stay was no restaurants, bars... More

The manager was a previous owner. He was very chatty and we felt we had a rapport with him. Our first morning we were surprised to find a limited selection of breakfast items which we felt would only appeal to small children. We asked if they could get some unsugared cereal and some whole wheat bread for toast. It never... More

I was shocked to hear my mother-in-law had to exit the room with my 2 kids at 11:15. There was not a line of people waiting on the room. It was Mother's Day morning and no reason to have someone yelling get out and banging on the door. Big $ for terrible treatment

I did not realize when I booked this room that it was so far off the main road going thru Galveston. The room was clean, we called ahead and let them know we were coming in late and that we would be hauling a race car. Owner let us park in the back and helped us get turned around. He... More

Had to give this star based on poor service. We drove from oklahoma w our kids and took longer than expected due to numerous wrecks and delayed traffic. We periodically called to advise our situation and man said no problem he understood. Once we arrived 11:30pm there was no one there we stayed and called 3x with no answer we... More

We stayed here for a night prior to departing on our cruise. Sam and the staff are super friendly and helpful and even took us to the cruise departure point!! The great thing about the Inn is that it is clean. This is a big thing for me when staying in hotels and motels. On top of this, the staff... More
