Just got back after spending last 2 days at this property. I needed 2 adjoining rooms and when I called the property, they transferred me to the booking line of IHG and the gentlemen over there had no idea that on this property adjoining rooms were a pair of 1 king and 1 queen. He was offering me 2 queens... More

The Room: 522 - Queen/Queen - Non-Smoking. Stayed over a non-holiday weekend. Hotel seemed to be about 75% full. The Good: The view from the 5th floor was great. The front desk staff were pleasant. Check-in and check-out were quick and easy. The lobby was pleasantly decorated in a brown/orange/burgundy modern scheme. Rooms and common areas were clean - not... More

We visited Galveston on July 13 to July 16. We had booked a wheelchair accessible through Expedia at another hotel. When we arrived, the room they had available for us was NOT wheelchair accessible. It was a big mess as we had already paid for the room. After hours of arguing with Expedia about the situation, they finally set us... More

This is an older hotel with the entrances to the rooms facing the parking lot so that all rooms have a balcony or patio facing the gulf. I've never seen one built like it. If the view is important to you, make sure you book a 'view' room as some rooms overlook the roof of the lobby/restaurant/bar and those on... More

This is an older hotel arranged so that all rooms have a view toward the gulf and each room has a small balcony. Our room was equipped with a large fridge, microwave oven, TV, hair dryer, ironing board, iron, and small safe. The beds were comfortable. Though the air conditioner in our room worked pretty well, it was still humid... More

I will start this by saying that I have stayed here many times. We have always enjoyed or visit and found the employees helpful and friendly. The family management company that runs this resort has high standards and I have always been impressed. I assume something has changed. We arrived about 45 min prior to check in and were told...

The location is great, all rooms face the ocean with a small balcony, you can tell it is a old hotel but they are refurnished and clean, I would definitely stay again. The store next door called Wings is a fun store for everything. My husband enjoyed the Sports Bar down stairs and with live music
