I booked this about a month before coming down to Galveston. They had our reservation ready and gave us a pull through as requested. When we got here it's kind of confusing where to come into the office. If you take the side street and come through the gate you can get to the office and sites. I had our... More

We enjoyed staying a week in our motorcoach . The kids stayed in the rooms. Pool is elevated and clean. Grounds are kept up and clean bathrooms. Anne is a delightful manager. She has written the book on customer services. My husband is a grumpy sort who rarely gets along with anyone. She handled him like a pro.

Hurricane Ike must have a done a service to the Island by wiping out the old motel at this location. The newly constructed RV Resort is very nice. Clean facilities and right next to the beach. Bring mosquito repellent however (duh). The manager "Dallas" is a little quirky but eventually gets your reservation right. We visited every RV camp on... More

We stayed here with our 40' RV. Beautiful setup for RV sites. Most have the gulf views. Plenty of room. Upon check in we were invited to go to a bar b que and kathy (is great!) asked if we would like to bring something for the pot luck. Very community oriented already. Did go, they had a wonderful bar... More

Ok, all the reviews are old. This is no longer a motel. I did stay here many many times when it was a motel as it was cheap and on the beach. Hurricane Gustov wiped the motel out as it did to all of Boliva and most of the island. Now for the changes, it is now a new RV... More

I enjoyed our stay here. My kids did too. Yes it's old but it's very quaint. The room was clean and so were the beds. We had a great view of the ocean and it was so close to the beach! I will stay here every trip. The people were friendly and very nice. Unless you have been staying at... More

I have been staying at the Sandpiper year after year with NO complaints. I am saddened to see so many negative reviews. If you come here expecting a 3 or 4 star hotel you WILL be disappointed. If you come expecting a great bargain, I honestly believe you will come away satisfied. It is not a fancy place, it's old... More
