After reading terrible reviews, I was afraid of what we would find. We stayed at the Beachcomber Inn for a night before our cruise. Our room was on the bottom floor. The appearance was just fine for a budget hotel. There was a clean bathroom with a good shower. The bed was fine. The breakfast area was spottless I felt... More

Although we never like to hear that anyone has had a bad experience, we do hope to be given the opportunity to make it right. Galveston island has gone through a devastating event with the hurricane and so have most of it's employees. Many of them lost everything they own and have been trying to recover as well. However, rude... More

We were happy that pur stay at this little unlnown went so well. It was a nice, clean place and the manager and staff were very friendly to me and my handicapped son. It's hard to find in that business, but when we got back from the hospital that day the manager even came to check on us and had... More

The rooms were clean and large, and the A/C worked very well, which is important in July in the South. The motel is only one block from the Seawall. The pool is small but clean. The free breakfast wasn't bad. My ice chest was taken from the room, but there was a sign on the door about their not being... More

I booked a reservation for this hotel for July in May. Due to extenuating circumstances, we had to cancel our reservations in June. I called June 13, and the cancelation due date was July 5. On July 8, a charge for one night's stay showed up on my credit card bill. I called to tell them about the mistake, giving... More

The picture on the website must have been photoshopped. When my family and I pulled up to this place we laughed and were so disppointed. It looked like an hourly rated motel. The pool was the size of a childs pool you could purchase from Wal-Mart. We immediately wanted to leave, but the clerk informed us that we would still... More

This is a great hotel close to the beach for the money. It is off of the Seawall about one half of a block. Our room was ready for check in at 3:00. The bed was comfortable, the A/C worked great, the shower was good. There is a coffee maker, a microwave and a refrigerator in the room. The room... More
