My wife and I are currently staying here. At first I thought this was going to be great. The pool looked amazing, but they closed it 25 minutes early so that bummed us. The ladies at the front desk were friendly, so that was nice. Then we needed a staff member to come to the room to help with the... More

So we ended up getting a great last minute deal for a long weekend thanks to priceline. We got 2 rooms for 2 nights. Staff is very friendly. Room are decent but need some fixing. There was rust on the doors for balconies and paint peeling here and there. All rooms have ocean view and free parking. Convenient location. Pool... More

I came to Galveston in August 2014 and through a change of circumstances found myself needing to find a place to stay. I was not prepared for this unwanted expense. I had planned on staying with friends. I needed something nice, where I felt safe being alone. When I came in I was greeted by Britney at the front desk.... More

Great location and pretty nice place, pool equipped with a swim up bar that also serves food! The staff was very friendly and helpful, The rooms could use a little updating (carpet was a bit worn) but all and all its a very nice place.

My husband and I stayed here this past week. Cannot beat the view this hotel has to offer. It is however in great need of updating (which they are starting to undergo.) The carpet in our room was horribly stained/dirty/musty smelling. Little specs of mold growing on the ceiling, and on the artwork hanging in room. I understand this is... More

We stayed 8/8-8/11/14. Really enjoyed our Girls weekend out. Despite needing a little updating & only one elevator was working which made for a long wait each time we used it. The rooms were a little muggy till they cooled down but not enough to complain about. The waiter (young guy) that worked in the dining room both mornings was... More

Hmmm, the hotel does seen to be in transition. One elevator worked so very inconvenient and riding w grumpy guests who have been waiting just like you. Kinda stuffy smelling but it is a beach room which I feel always smells. Good location and pool. Decently nice staff nice view from balcony. Not sure I'd stay again but your choices... More
