This is a extremely clean hotel with a great view. We were not disappointed in the "next to the gulf" views of the rooms nor in the gathering areas at the end of the complex of rooms. The staff was friendly and nice and pointed out several places to eat. We opted for the eatery next door. The food that... More

We stayed in the newest addition, the room was nice other than a couple of cockroaches on the walls an the water from the faucet was Brown, foamy, and smelled bad.

I flew to Houston to meet a friend and attend a weekend gathering. Since I was coming from Indiana, I decided to take a few extra days and just "get away". I originally planned to stay on Galveston but decided to look for someplace a little more secluded. I stumbled on Ocean Village while looking on Google Earth and decided... More

I'm glad that you stumbled upon our little hidden treasure! The staff is definitely a Hoot! They add to the overall awesome atmosphere and experience.

When planning this trip we called local chamber's of commerce, tourism bureau, etc and was told by all not to stay in Surfside to stay in Clute. Ocean Village was not the Ritz by any means but a nice find. Problems: when making the reservation the hostess added our stay to someone else's CC. We requested a room with a... More

My first impression of the hotel staff was not good. It was difficult to get someone on the phone to make a reservation. When we arrived to check in, the front desk staff was very unfriendly. We stayed in room 301 (honeymoon suite). The bathroom was small and the shower was even smaller. The tub was average size. The water... More

We now have new staff and are currently hiring more friendly smiling front desk. The older rooms are smaller than the new rooms. The new addition has larger bathrooms and more space in the rooms.
