My boyfriend and I had planned to camp on the beach but it was uncomfortably hot, so in a rush we grabbed the first drive up we saw, thinking it would be cheap. Wrong. So wrong. The final bill was $206. For ONE NIGHT. I know I was lucky to get a room, but this isn't even a $50 room-... More

Our room smelt so badly of cat pee it made my eyes water. Trouble sleeping, ammonia taste in my mouth. Bathroom filthy, I could feel the slime on the bottom of the shower as I stepped in. Hotel of the dregs of society giving us dirty looks as we entered. Receptionist asked for $10 remote control deposit - I said... More

This is not a B&B but an old fashion pull up to the door motel. How it got listed as a B&B is a mystery. This is an older two story motor court type of place with great view of the water. The rooms are small but come with all you need and the staff is friendly and helpful. Beds... More

The hotel is in a prime location in Galveston. However, the rooms are quite run down and dingy. The absolute worst thing about our room was the bathroom - molds without end. Too bad, and never again...

We stay there every year Yes there could be some upgrades like pillows and bedding but it is a perfect location. The staff is very nice and helpful and we are looking forward to our trip this year. The only thing I don't like is they do not have a web sight that you can reserve your room and see... More

I travel for my job and basically live on the road so I've seen and stayed in everything imaginable. I'm a single male traveling alone so I'm not fussy and a lot of times price is more important than quality to me. I stopped here because the location was good and the sign said $35 for a single. I went... More

I didn't care about the noisy fridge--unplug it, no more problem. I didn't care about the old fixtures either, or the threadbare bedding. Everything was worn, faded, damaged, and the pillows were ridiculously flat. The absolute worst thing about our room was the carpeting. It was damp, but it was also so filthy we had to wash our feet and... More

I have been meaning to write this review for some time, but it kept bringing back foul images. The location and view of the gulf on Seawall Blvd. is great!...........That is the only pro. The room was it's self was ....ok. The bedspreads were thread bare and the sheets on one of the beds has blood stains on the side.... More

First room they gave us, we couldn't get the door open. After 30 minutes, we got into another room but by that time our 10 minutes was up. So we got charged for the night even though we didn't stay there! We fought it with our credit card and they came back stating we did stay there. Still fighting the... More

Dirty, gave me the creeps! It is a dump! Pillows are flat. The shower floor was like walking on nails. TV worked.wifi didn't. We were afraid parts of the ceiling would fall on us during the night. AC worked good. Must be new. Shady clientele! police had to come during the night for someone disturbing the guest. Crack in door,... More
