So- other reviews on the hotels own website, demonstrates they lose electricity often. That's not a cool event, especially when you're dealing with a hotel that has no backup generator, and their phones no longer work. Poor communications for out of town guests (who are unfamiliar with power company) as to when the ETA for electricity is. Thank goodness for... More

We traveled as a family with 4rooms and spent Christmas day and night. They were able to give us late checkout the next day so we could get ready to adventure out onto the island. Will at the front desk was great and took care of our every need. The property is absolutely beautiful!!!!! Everything looks brand new. it is... More

I stayed at the Courtyard Galveston for 5 days for a conference I was attending. My room was very spacious and my view of the Gulf was absolutely wonderful. I stayed right above the main entrance to my surprise I wasn't bothered by any loud noise. Overall the staff were friendly, my room was clean. The only down side that... More

I loved this hotel. However, I have to say that my booking experience was to good prior to getting to this hotel. Here is the problem, in looking online, this place rates very highly. If you try to book online you will find that you are not actually getting what the hotel calls it "cruise port package". Although, you think... More

Hotel was very nice and clean; however, it is a little far away from the downtown area (such as the Pleasure Pier and most restaurants). Hotel is right across the street from the beach but dont expect to swim in the ocean (mostly large rocks instead of sand). You are right near a go-kart track, batting cages and amazing mini... More

The hotel is located on the west end of the island, right on the seawall and is within walking distance of restaurants and the ocean front. Our room was well appointed. We noted a few housekeeping misses like dust and smudges in the bathroom, which were not too disturbing. However, late in the evening, as we retired for the night,... More

This is a classic Marriott Courtyard. Nice comfortable room, friendly staff, good restaurant, WiFi and nice gulf view. Conveniently located and free shuttle. We booked the cruise package which allows for free parking while we cruised. Plus the shuttle took us to the port and picked us up after the cruise and brought us back to the hotel so we... More

Booked for night before cruising from Galveston, 9:30 pm arrival on a Friday night. Friendly staff, quick check in. Bar closes at 10:00(kinda early) so BYOB or go with Ben & Jerry's in the well stocked grab&go store. Room and bathroom were nice. Location was great for a morning run along the sea wall. Desk attendant recommendations for breakfast was... More

Came here for a business meeting. The hotel is nice and located just across from the beach. It is far from other attractions but has good service and attentive staff. Conference room is nice and the food was quite decent.

PLEASE GIVE THIS REVIEW A HELPFUL VOTE I stayed at this Courtyard Hotel for three days after Thanksgiving 2015. It appears to be a fairly new hotel and it's on the small side. Just 4 floors. The pros are that it's a clean hotel with friendly staff located a couple of miles southwest of the most heavily populated areas of... More
