My husband and planned a short 3 night getaway. We were planning to go to the San Louis but there was a big convention on and the Holiday Inn, which is part of the San Luis Resort was recommended. It was simple but clean. Very friendly staff and awesome concierge. The Hotel had the same energy like the larger resort.... More

The hotel was great! We stayed in a Suite with a balcony overlooking the beach in Galveston. It was a great hotel. The beds were very comfortable. And the staff was extremely friendly. I will stay at this hotel every time I am in Galveston from now on.

Stayed for one night in late May-15. Rooms are OK, but nothing more. The door to the balcony were very difficult to open and close. Mattress was on the hard side and at bit uncomfortable. Restaurant connected to the hotel was nothing out of the ordinary. The WiFi did not work, and the front desk did nothing to fix it.

The hotel/restaurant staff is the friendliest ever! To a person, each looked us in the eye and greeted us warmly. Very pleasant place to stay - they make you feel genuinely appreciated! Will return!!!

Such a great hotel we decided to extent our stay! Don't be fooled by other hotels in Galveston- this one is actually right on the beach. Friendly staff, large rooms, pool, kids activity room, my only complaint is the wi-fi was a little spotty. Room E41 preferred.

Some real positives: 1. sincerely friendly and helpful staff; 2. Creditable huevos rancheros in the restaurant; 3. Very comfortable bed. And then.... 1. Wifi worked only when outside on the very noisy porch; 2. VERY noisy porch--road/traffic noise; 3. Carpets should be shampooed every 10 years, whether they need it or not; 4. Spartan but adequate bathroom; 5. Spotty PPV... More

We only stayed one night, but it was great. Every room faces the ocean, so nobody will ever be disappointed with a room overlooking the parking lot. For the prices you pay for rooms, at any level of hotel/motel, there's a certain standard you expect based on that level. Everything about the room exceeded those standards. Two nice touches are...

Save your money and/or reward points! Dont stay here! The lobby is nice, the rooms are dirty, grimy, badly furnished with broken and dirty furniture and the showers do not work properly! The staff does not recognize you as a platinum rewards member--in fact they are rude to you!

Employees I came in contact with were very friendly. The rooms were nice and the rooms are smoke free.. Hotel is close to all the attractions offered on the beach and... More
