Stayed for one night prior to cruise. I found the hotel to be clean and safe. Great location directly across from the beach. The cruise ship was delayed getting into port due to oil spill in Galveston Bay. The staff at the hotel was more than accomodating. They did their absolute best to provide information about situation and shuttle people... More

I love the fact that this hotel is across from the beach, you can walk out to the balcony and see the ocean and the hotel staff are very helpful and friendly when you check in. I have stayed here before and have been mostly satisfied. The hotel has a restaurant and a bar but they are basic and priced... More

I was surprised at how friendly the entire staff was at this hotel from the front desk to the maintenance staff. Although the room rates are a little high the views are beautiful and worth the expense. The location across the street from the beach and near major points of interest. The exterior of the building looks a little run... More

Everyone on the staff greets you with a smile every time they pass. They took care of things I needed to take care of business( sent faxes, free Wifi, etc - all complementary. The view from the room looks onto the Gulf of Mexico - Gorgeous!

The only thing nice about this hotel is the location. The rooms are run down, worn out. Stayed one night, and the wind whistled through the door the entire night - I felt like I was in a tent. The tv didn't work and had to be reset by maintenance, and the plumbing also failed and had to be fixed... More

The hotel is across the beach and next to the San Louis resort. Hotel rooms are about average for the area, nothing special. Lobby area roomy, ok. I did not see the exercise room, though I thought I saw a reference to it somewhere. I'm sure we got caught paying spring break prices, but would not pay the asking price... More

Myself and a friend just styayed here from March 19th to the 21st and had a great time.
