Got to the hotel late because of a play in Houston, the owner was waiting for me with a smile and an upgrade to the room. Very friendly people, great price, and it was located right next to the ferry where you can take a free ride across and see the dolphins and ocean birds. The room was nice, clean,... More

We go every year, stay at the Scottish Inn, rooms are very clean, neat, pool is excellent, surroundings are neat and tidy, and you cannot beat Sam and his wife and staff for their hospitality. We always feel safe, the only place we will stay in the Galveston area. Looking forward to our next trip.

First of all, the staff, who I assume to be the owners, are extremely friendly, helpful, and professional. We were quite surprised by their hospitality and appreciated it. The outside of the hotel looked nicer than we expected, and the room we stayed in was recently renovated. Everything was clean, the room was quite large for one king bed, and... More

We stayed here for one night and it was not worth the money we paid for the room. It was fairly clean - not exceptional though. The grout in the tub was not clean and the ceiling in the bathroom had a hole in it as a result of water damage. The beds were very uncomfortable, as were the pillows.... More

Our search for an inexpensive Galveston hotel for a quick getaway led to a wonderful stay in this quiet spot run by superbly consciencious, courteous owners. Our choice was based on price combined with a high number of positive customer reviews. We found Scottish Inn to be clean, comfortable, well-furnished, and having the best-maintained swimming pool of any hotel I... More
