Two families headed to Galveston. A beach resort... Relies heavily on the summer tourism. Hotel is older but remodeled and very clean. Staff was nice for the most part but not very competent. Our room was not ready when we got there at 4:15 (checkin is at 4). We waited in our friends room for a promised phone call when... More

We enjoyed our 2 nights stay at this hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The only snag was that we were given a room with one king bed when our reservation had been made for 2 beds. Not sure how the mix-up happened, but they sent up an inflatable mattress for our 3 year old and it was... More

Hotel staff was very polite and helpful and friendly. Holly at the front desk was a pleasure to deal with. Each time we returned from an outing, we were welcomed back like an old friend returning home. Loved sitting on the balcony and watching the boats in the gulf and the traffic on the seawall. Was a great 25th anniversary... More

Destination: I'll post a little about Galveston first for those of you who may have never been there. I have to tell you up front that if you are expecting post card beaches and gorgeous blue water you will be disappointed. The water has a brown hue too it at all times, and the sea weed is out of control.... More

A friend and I stayed here in July 14 for 3 nights. It is ideally located and the walks along the seawall are nice. Breakfast was good (included), the rooms were comfortable, and the only draw back is the uncomfortable pillows. The staff were fantastic and extremely helpful.

My wife, 5 year old granddaughter and myself checked in early on July 8th for two nights. Holly, a front desk employee was quick to check us in and "guaranteed us a pleasant stay." After receiving a room on the first floor, blocking our view from the beach, I went back to the front desk and asked for a room... More

First time to stay here and we enjoyed it very much. The location was great for us - we did end up driving to lunch and dinner. The cafe downstairs is perfect for a quick breakfast. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms clean - two items high on my priority list. The... More

I have never ever had a bad experience at any other Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express hotel so I figured this stay would be no different. I was greeted by a front desk clerk who was thanking me for being a rewards member...that speech was so rehearsed it was almost comical. Check in is at 4pm. We arrived at 3:56pm and... More

Decided to try something different this year, so headed West to Galveston Island. We have never been here before. After we booked the rooms we saw on the National news the mountains of seaweed on Galveston Beach. Too late to book anything else a week before in the Summer,and the fact I got a non refundable booking to save a... More

My daughter, granddaughter, and I have visited this resort on two separate occasions recently and loved it each time. The facility/rooms are awesome and have everything you need if you decide to cook or just sit back and relax. I love that they have washer/dryers right outside the room! Beach access is awesome and the beach is very private! Parking... More
