We were looking for an affordable location to spend the night before boarding a ship. Galveston hotels tend to cost well over $150/night. This Motel 6 was a pleasant surprise. We paid $82/night (including tax) for 2 double beds. Nice room - poolside. Front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating. Sure you have to go to the front desk... More

My husband has to travel frequently for his job.....decided to stay in Galveston and at the Motel 6. The rooms are not clean, floors are dirty, housekeeping has checked on us ONCE, you have to go to the front desk for towels, which is like rubbing burlap sack on your body. The water pressure is bad, whatever setting you use... More

We stayed the night prior to boarding a cruise. So it served its purpose as a place to lay one's head. Other than that, I have no neutral or positive comments. The bed is beyond uncomfortable. The shower may as well be a faucet. It reeks of smoke. They demand payment upfront, which would not be bad except that the... More

I've stayed in this motel many times before, way back before they renovated it. My friends and I use to stay here when we went to Mardi Gras in Galveston so I knew what to expect. This time we just needed a place to stay for the night after spending the day at Schlitterbahn for my nieces birthday. She was... More

I was expecting no frills. I feel traumatized by the 1 hour I spent here. I am pretty hardy so I looked past the condom wrapper on the welcome mat and the fact that this motel is isolated and surrounded by empty lots and construction sites. I plucked up some courage bought some light cleaning supplies and tried to make... More

I have to admit that the price is quite cheap but not as much as I prepared to discover ... The room smells of mold, so much so that I had to put the car perfume hanging on the air conditioning vents. The shower tray is dirty, covered by a halo of gray as dirty not cleaned for months. One... More

Stayed here because it was half the price of all the other hotels on the island that weekend and now I know why it was so much cheaper. Horrible. Our AC did not cool the room during the day and I could only put it on 66 which sounds cold, but it hardly blew at all when it was on... More

This isn't your usual Motel 6. Granted, it's not a Hilton, but it was a good, clean, modern room. The price was very affordable! Appreciated the great service at check in. One drawback, the ice machine is not in the most ideal settings, but, again, the price was so reasonable , I couldn't complain. We will be back to stay!!!

Worst Hotel I have ever been in. The word trashy comes to mind. First room was not cleaned so we got another. Second room appeared to be clean but hairs in the bed. If you walked barefoot your feet picked up all kinds of dirt, hair, etc. Terrible smell from the drain of the shower. Guests have to pay for... More

They don't have a restaurant so this is the reason for the low mark. Your not on the beach its only 5 minutes away. Paid 50-75% less than what the big hotels on Seawall charges. Rooms are clean and the staff is very polite and will bend over backwards to make it right. The pool are as well as the... More
