Been out at the beach for the day, salty and sandy ready for a nice hot shower. Check into the Hilton at Galveston pay for the room. Front desk seemed nice enough. Head up to the room no towels not even one. Call down to get some towels. Yeah we'll get some up there. Family starts their shower. One finished... More

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The pictures and amenities we saw online before booking were great... But sometimes you never know what exactly you will get. BUT we were pleasantly surprised. The pool was amazing, the staff was very courteous, and it was quite kid-friendly. Great location also!! My husband and I definitely agreed this is where we will stay... More

Could be a great hotel. Rooms are small, need updating. Gets a large crowd during peak times which overwhelms the staff and property. The pool and bar are good. It really needs ocean front balcony views and a lot of work to make this a great vacation destination

The only thing we thought was decent about this property was the pool and staff at the pool. The hotel itself is very out dated, dirty and the staff was not friendly. Our room didn't have working lights or no mini fridge. This is a must for a family! Our room was hardly cleaned, trash left in cans, no towels... More

I stayed here for 5 days on a business trip in a seafront room. It is primarily a resort hotel with a lot of families on vacation. There is a good size pool with a sunken bar in it along with a sauna and jacuzzi. The pool fronts onto the parking lot and it is a shame that it is... More

$500.00 hotel room, and the smallest room I've ever stayed in. The bathroom is tiny as well. The guest lounge is cool but way overpriced as well. Even the TVs are tiny. I paid for a view of the ocean and though I can walk out of my balcony, lean over and see a small part of the ocean I... More

This is a hotel that I can wholeheartedly recommend. We decided to spend a night before our cruise to Caribbean in this hotel. What a nice start for our vacation. The experience was amazing from the point when we registered to the hotel, everybody working for the hotel was very pleasant, wanted to make sure we had everything we needed.... More

Staff was very welcoming but did not think that the room as nice as Hampton Inns we have stayed in. Bathroom and entry area floors looked like they needed to be stripped and new was applied. Entire staff was very helpful though. Was disappointed that this was suppose to be a resort. The air conditioning unit was extremely noisy.

The customer service and professionalism of the staff at this hotel WAY exceeds higher priced hotels on the island. The pool is kind of small and is in the parking lot but the customer service and the rooms more than make up for the pool experience. The location; next door to Landry,s Rainforest Cafe, and IHOP made it easy to... More

We are Hilton honors and we are usually happy with the Hilton resorts. We have not been pleased with our most recent stays with Hilton, first the Clearwater resort and now the Galveston resort.
