I stayed one night for an event. The hotel is on the beach road and you can walk along the seawall or go for a nice run if you like. There is a modest fitness room as well for your exercise if the outside heat and humidity are too much. Appearance wise everything was fine, reasonably new, pretty generic interior... More

Built after Hurricane Ike. Very clean and nice. Very good breakfast buffet. Extra large pool and 2 hots. Right across from beach and fishing pier. Book early and cheaper than other hotels on island. Nice Walmart done street.

This hotel was wonderful. We usually stay at the Hilton or San Luis but this hotel is located a few miles west and is away from the hustle and bustle. Very quiet and nice decor. We were able to get a Gulf view room (305) and it was perfect. The traffic is lighter in this area. There is no beach,... More

This is a great location! Jimmys on the pier is a great restaurant close by on an actual pier and down below you can explore the beach and granite rocks. Our check in was wonderful, we were moved to a room with a view so my husband could enjoy a smoke on the patio. The different temperature hot tubs were... More

When I shop for hotels I always search for the ones with the best location and a decent breakfast. Well, the Holiday Inn Express breakfast is a winner. They served eggs, breakfast meat, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, cereal, you name it. This hotel is located on the quiet end of the island. The beach in this section is almost nonexistent, with... More

Oh and the fire alarm at 3am without any hotel employee...disturbing. Called fire dept after 15 mins outside without seeing a fire truck and the truck was still in route. The person standing next...

We had a great stay at the Holiday Inn in Galveston on the seawall. The night auditor Cherrie was more than helpful and even pulled some brochures for us to look at to find stuff to do around the area with the kids while we were in town. She definitely went the extra mile for us. Thanks to Cherrie we... More
