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

We booked a room for $125 a night online. We drove 7 hours to get here, and all of the sudden, they want to charge us $350 a night. They would not take responsibility, and said that they would do $250 for the first night, and $350 for the second night. Ended up cancelling everything and going to a Hampton(Amazing... More

Had a great time there but it is not worth the price. One elevator was down so only had one elevator working for a 5 floor building. The staff by the pool were great, and so were the maintenance crew that you ran into in the hall. The front desk not the best. I understand we were right by the... More

We had a blast! Yes it's not modern or a chain so that's why I like it. The view is AWESOME! You are directly across the street from a nice quiet SANDY rock free beach! The price is extremely affordable for the price. I have no complaints about our stay everyone is nice proximity to pleasure pier and dining fantastic!... More
