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

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 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

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.
