Nice hotel right opposite the beach good size rooms and a decent breakfast. The staff were helpful and friendly and there are great places around Galveston for walking and bird watching. As it was mid November unlikely to go swimming but great walks along the shoreline. The rooms above the third floor are best if you want an ocean view.

Stayed Saturday night (6th floor, over the pool). We had to get up early for a race the following morning. Could not get any sleep with the night club/bar band being so loud. It didn't stop until 1am. The music usually doesn't bother me, but we needed the rest and couldn't get it here. The place has a nice location... More

Whenever we miss being on the beach, an easy driving south about 7 hours was our closest and we always stay at this Holiday Inn Resort. It is centrally located on the busy road (Seawall Blvd). We feel as if it is the center of everything in Galveston Island, i.e., a few minutes to historic downtown Galveston and the harbor,... More

I stayed here while on a business trip in December, so I can't say much about the beach/summer experience, but I know I won't stay here again if I come back to Galveston. It was not very clean, the rooms were a little run-down, I could smell my neighbors smoking all night. The grounds are not well kept, and I... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in August and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean, and we had a wonderful view of the sea. Our room also had a small balcony where we could sit and enjoy the early morning view. The location is excellent - the beach is right across the street, most attractions and restaurants were a...

We stayed for one night in November before our Thanksgiving cruise. The rooms were great, the views were great. Staff wonderful! We love the lounge and enjoyed spending some time there in the evening.

This is a fantastic hotel that provides great services at a reasonable price point. We stayed for one night and used their free shuttle service to our cruise and was able to park the car for free while we were on our cruise. This is a great service and they have a great happy hour to boot.

Our one night stay, unbeknownst to us, coincided with the Lone Star Rally. We arrived late and were fortunate to receive the most exceptional care from Ed. Ed is truly excellent at hotel and customer service. He made us feel like we were his only customers, like we had a personal concierge. Others at this hotel also delivered a level... More

When I called to inquire about the hotel, Holli was very friendly and answered my questions thoroughly. Upon arrival, Deanna greeted me with a smile and was very courteous and accommodating when I requested a different room. We had a nice room on the third floor with a small balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was clean and the beds... More

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
