I love the location of the hotel but was unpleasantly surprised when I learned that the thermostats in the rooms are pre-programmed to temps between 72 and 78 and cannot be adjusted for temps outside that range. I also discovered that the thermostats are on motion senors so when there is inactivity in the room the temp automatically jumps to... More

Hotel is beautiful. Loved the room, view and pool. Got to look out directly to the ocean. The pool area is awesome!! Bar is right outside, fire pit and cabanas! Food was ok. Been benefit them to have wait staff for the pool on busy days. On the flip side.... The room and hotel were hot! We turned the air... More

We recently stayed at thus hotel for the second time this weekend (August 23,24) and were not disappointed in the least. The hotel has all the amenities you could want and is very new construction. It boasts an excellent fitness center complete with a flat screen TV and television monitors on the cardio equipment. The pool includes. A gradual walkin... More

My husband and I decided to sneak down to Galveston while our daughter was at Fish Camp at Texas A & M College Station. I had requested an ocean view with a balcony, and it was room 410, on the fourth floor and was just perfect. We spent many hours on that balcony enjoying the ocean and the breeze and... More

Don’t usually respond to or comment on my stays at any hotel. My stay the courtyard in Galveston, TX. however demands that I bring attention to the conditions that my family and I were exposed to. We made reservations for and received a 4th floor ocean view room with a balcony. The sliding door to that balcony however was broken... More

I love Mariott and this hotel was no exception. The decor was great. The room was great. The pool was fabulous. Now on the downside, there is no beach to speak of in front of the hotel. It is further down the island away from the main attractions but hey it's not like 5 miles is a long way to... More

This hotel was perfect for our last minute family vacation. Price was great and hotel is located right across the street from the beach. It is about a mile and a half down seawall Blvd from the restaurants, but that didn't bother us...The hotel is in a nice quiet area. I loved that they served Starbucks and other goodies in... More

We visited the Courtyard Galveston recently and we were so pleased with the rooms, the Bistro meals, snacks, and drinks, the room and lobby amenities and the service. The pool was beautiful and the view from our room was incredible. The staff was friendly and responsive. We enjoyed sitting out on the front benches that face the Gulf and watching... More

We were visiting Austin and San Antonio and got a last minute notion to go to Galveston. We checked TripAdvisor and found that Courtyard had the best review. We called and were able to get a room for the next night. We arrived at the hotel during a break in a very big storm. The storm had washed a ton... More

I traveled to Texas to do business and needed to stay in Galveston for one night. We had a late arrival and left early the next day, but were very pleased by our accommodations and the overall amenities available in this new-style Courtyard. Rooms have a new look with curved counters, soffits, that echo the design of the hotel. The... More
