Good price and near to where I needed. You get what you pay for, seems like just a crowded room. Took me several attempts to figure out how to open the door. You apparently do the up down movement quite a bit. Took a shower and afterwards it would randomly leak. Got up at least 3 times to make sure... More

I was very disappointed with hotel! The price I paid was $121 for the room we got. We were traveling with another couple, anxious for our cruise the next morning. After a long journey we were ready just rest. It was far from it! We accepted the last rooms which were handicap, no problem I thought. The bed was like... More

My wife and my son stayed here for three days and enjoyed it very much. I see some reviews on here about this place and those people that give it one star should be ashamed of themselves. The room was clean, and the staff was very kind. I especially like the professionalism of Dana, Victoria and Regina. They made me... More

This is a great place to stay if you have a cruise going from Galveston. It was about a 5-10min taxi. The hotel had parking and the room was prefect for a nights sleep before or even after the cruise. It is simple but exactly what you need. Clean bed, good shower and comfortable. The staff were also really nice... More

Many of the rooms are being renovated at this time. Laminate floors so they do not get mopped. Maids spray deodorizer in the rooms so there is a build up of that on the floor making them feel greasy. Bring your slippers to walk around in after you get out of the shower. Hot water was warm not hot. No... More

He looked like he was fresh off the street corner. The room was not cleaned well. Floor dirty etc...And if you want a bed that feels like cement this is... More

My husband I decided at the last minute to visit Galveston for his birthday. Unfortunately it was spring break and we could not find an open room. But then, we found Motel 6. What's the saying? It is what it is. Be prepared, this room offered only a bed, a shower (no water pressure) a table and tv. Most hotels... More

With all the rooms booked and last minute trip we booked one night here . Where to begin ? The bathroom water pressure is horrible and not worth attempting to shower. The beds are cardboard and hard as a rock and you could tell it was as cheap as possible little complementary things like blowdryers they don't have and no... More

The only good thing was the nice lady at the front desk. Otherwise everything else was bad. The room was not clean. The sheets were washed though. The water pressure was BAD, and the water in a clear glass was cloudy (don't drink the tap water ha) WiFi costs $2.99 a day?! Ive stayed at $30 hotels with free WiFi.... More
