Travel regularly for work and pleasure, but this was by far the most disgusting hotel experience I can recall. Settled into our room for what we thought would be a nice, relaxing evening after a long day of travel; only to find bodily fluids sprayed across the headboard and nearby chair. Staff (Shanese) responded promptly and was more than helpful... More

Across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. Employees were all pleasant and helpful. Onsite restuarant had good food and service. Room was clean and most rooms have a balcony overlooking the water. We were there the night before a cruise and they supply shuttle to the cruise terminal and allow week long parking at no cost.

Be sure to be very specific on your room. Ask for over the 3rd floor and not overlooking the roof. Ask for overlooking pool. All rooms face the ocean. We were 3rd floor looking at a very ugly roof. Hotel is older Smells like smoke and when I complained I beleive they may have put some spray through the ventilation... More

It is a older hotel but they are updating the property. Room nice and pretty clean. The staff is very friendly and real helpful. Shuttle service was a major plus. We didn't have to move our car. Excellent location for Pleasure Pier and beach.

Every year we come to Galveston and after a bad incident with another hotel, and we walked into holiday Inn and our stay was awesome. Since then every year we stay here. Now the first night we had to ask for a different room. The bed was lumpy and old. They do need to get new beds for some of... More

Housed at this resort for a business convention @ the Galveston Convention Center a short distance away. Shuttle service came in very handy due to responsibilities and tight schedule. Service was above reproach and very appreciated. Lots of guests and a busy time for hotel employees. Holly at the front desk was very accommodating and very cordial when she could... More

Overall, I would say that this property was a decent value for what I paid. Property is located directly off of Seawall Blvd, so only 15 feet of pavement separate you from the beach. You can walk out on your balcony and see and hear the waves crashing along the shoreline, which is a nice background noise to fall asleep... More
