when we arrived at our room the door was wide open and service panels in the closet were opened. no one ever returned to close them. the door to the room leaked air like crazy and the wind that day made it whistle real loud. Internet access was no where to be found. we were on the 8th floor and... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn @ San Luis Resort in Galveston for three nights. The hotel is easy to find, even if you do not know Galveston, parking is free and close by. During our stay they were remodeling the top two floors. They were gradually working their way through all the rooms. Upon arrival at the hotel, we... More

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn on the Beach over Christmas break. Unfortunately, the weather was not that great (rainy and overcast for two days), but the hotel was a nice surprise. It is an older property, so those who stay at H.I. know what that can mean. However, most things seemed to be well maintained and... More

While my family and I ultimately could not honor our reservation due to an unforeseen event, HI was amazing and worked with us even though they didn't have to. Everyone we spoke to on the phone (and it was many), so incredibly respectful and helpful. I will continue to be an HI guest.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort the night before our cruise and were treated wonderfully. The in room internet was wonderful and the breakfast the next morning was delicious with a view of the ocean. Then we got to leave our car there for the week free saving us $65 in parking fees and a shuttle to and from... More

We traveled to Galveston to go to the Pleasure Pier and chose this Holiday Inn based on location and we are members of the frequent stay program. :-) Fantastic location and we requested a high floor for the view. It was great! The hotel is going through some renovations, and I think our room was recently renovated. The floor and... More

The kind of efficient, clean good quality acommodation you've come to expect. Located on Seawall Blvd, minutes walk to supermarkets and restaurants, the Strand is easily accessible down Rosenburg Avenue also close by. With in-room coffee, microwave, a basic workout room,comfy beds and free wifi (with iffy accessibility). $89 for a ground floor room in December.

The first night not so great. Got there late our first night and the clerk had told us we would have an ocean view and then when arrived he said he could not guarantee it to us. Then we got in the room and the refrigerator made a pinging noise that drove me crazy! We were able to upgrade the... More

We've stayed here many times over several years and have always enjoyed our stay. Right on the Seawall with great views of the beach. The hotel is older, but they do a good job modernizing the rooms. Each room has a small balcony to soak up some great sunrises or sunsets, depending on the season. All rooms face the beach.... More
