Well, we stayed at IBTS, Galveston Memorial Day week. I personally would not characterize it as "cute." However, it is a great value, providing your expectations are appropriate. Best things; great staff, location, cold AC, covered parking, view of beach (across blvd.), roomy. Worst things; low end appliances (large & small), awful bed (cannot even express how awful), general deferred maintanence - blinds missing rods and falling down, worn furniture, slow drain in tub, subpar kitchen utensils (Teflon flaking pans). That said, we stayed 5 nights, one more than planned b/c we relaxed so much our backs started to hurt less than first few nights. Just know what to expect and not expect and you'll have a good time at Inverness. Get seafood at the Pier and boil in your pot brought from home. Bring your own pillows too. Our unit had W/D, but too scary to use. I would go back, but will rent a house next time for something different.
