So the San Luis Management can know I'm a real customer. I stayed in 1620 8/17-8/19, VIP Room, Paid over $700 for 2 nights. What a rip off.... 1. Guaranteed check-in at 4:00, NO. Waited in line 3 times to get my room at 4:45. 2. Room A/C functioning, NO. Room never got below 76. 3. Clean my room on... More

Family of four for a weekend in Galveston. I chose this hotel because of the beautiful pool that from different points you can sea the Gulf. The Gulf is so nasty and smelly right now from the seaweed, so as long as you are not on the beach this is the best hotel. The pool was great, has a massive... More

My experience at this hotel was terrible. Day started off not being able to check in early. Then at 4:30 pm had to get in line for 45 minutes with only two front desk people. The pictures make it look very inviting but the rooms have not be updated and cleaning is less than desirable. The shower curtain rod was... More

We traveled from Houston down to Galveston for a wonderful 2 night stay and time away from the kids. We thought the hotel was pricey at first, but after checking in, we lacked or nothing. We were catered too and assisted in every area of our stay. We will go back and enjoy the service and beautiful view soon. We... More

We stayed on the VIP 15th floor which had a great view of the ocean and a comfortable king sized bed . The balcony was nice if you could get the sliding door open! It took all my might to slide the very heavy glass door opened 12 inches so that we could shimmy out onto the balcony. The VIP... More

This is not my first stay at this hotel. It will be my last. The other 3 times we stayed in the Club Ten rooms. This time we had the kids & grandkids with us so we booked the "regular" rooms. We booked via their website 2 months prior to our arrival. With confirmation letter in hand, went to check... More

We went for the Club-10 (or something like that) supposedly exclusive, special deal which was meant to include (1) glass of Champagne on arrival. Well - it was fizzy but it was definitely not champagne. (2) Bottle of Champagne in the room. Nope - a HALF bottle of either Cava or Prosecco but again - NOT Champagne. Fruit and nibbles... More

The room felt beautiful with the balcony doors open. Great view of the pool area and Gulf! Made use of the 4 man bike rentals onsite. Located about 27 blocks from Pleasure Pier. Onsite Italian and Steak restaurants and swim up pool side bar. Right across the street from the Gulf. Will definitely be going back!

Stayed in the VIP rooms (top two floors of the hotel). Checked in and went up to our room which had a beautiful balcony overlooking the Gulf. Yes, we smoke, so I had a cigarette up on the balcony with the room door closed. 2 minutes later it's the front desk telling me I'm not allowed to smoke on the... More
