Our recent stay at the Hilton Galveston resort was a bit of a disappointment. While the location was great (right across the street from the water), the cleanliness of the hotel was not up to Hilton standards. The bedroom was clean enough, but the bathroom had hairs on the floor and fixtures not cleaned/dusted. Hotel corridors had stained, unvacuumed rugs... More

We stayed for a long weekend in April 2014. We were surprised upon arriving that this hotel was called a 'resort'. It's a hotel...with a pool. Not a resort. We've been to many Hilton and Marriot Resorts all over the world, and this property does not quality. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful - no problems... More

We didn't want to leave ! Decided on a short stay for our honeymoon & after a crazy busy wedding weekend - couldn't have picked a better place. Front Desk Cari & Bellman Chris were amazing - under promised & over delivered ! Great location with a Kroger, CVS, restaurants, Ben&Jerry's, etc all within walking distance. Gulf front view was...

My wife, kids, and I have been coming to this hotel/resort 4 or 5 times a year for 6 years. We love it, however about 2 years ago the staff became so unwelcoming and rude that we began to slow down our visits and planned to stop coming. We gave it another try this year and it is much improved.... More

This is the worst Hilton we have ever visited. We booked two nights and left after the first night. The hotel is worn down, not clean and the personnel does not give you the idea you're very welcome. The paint in our bath tub was peeling off and there were all kinds of hairs in our bathroom (not ours). Cleaning... More

What a wonderful experience our family and friends had this weekend staying in multiple rooms for a wedding celebration. The hospitality of the staff was excellent, and we enjoyed every moment of our time there. Location on the beach was super. There is a huge pool with hot tub and swim-up bar, and even had live music. Food was presented... More

We stayed gee for one night before a cruise and were happy with the accommodations. Check in was easy and the staff was very happy and helpful. The room itself was nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. Noise was never an issue. The pool area is also very nice but stayed crowded. The valet service is a nice convenience and... More

We stayed here before a cruise. The hotel is decent and we had a wonderful time. The staff was outstanding and their location is second to none on Galveston Island. We used their parking for our cruise. It is located offsite a couple of miles away. Overall a great stay and an awesome staff.

My daughter, son in-law and I had a wonderful time staying at this Hilton. It was a very enjoyable relaxing stay. We were made so welcome and taken care of even for a 1 night stay. Thank you for taking care of us.
