We had a large group going on a cruise (including some elderly relatives) so we needed a reasonably priced hotel to stay at before our cruise. We didn't need a place close to the beach nor did we want to pay the higher prices. This was a good choice. This hotel was right off the highway as we drove in from Houston- very easy to find.
We went to the beach for dinner and it took us less than 10 minutes to get to the strand. Moody Gardens was even closer.
Within walking distance of the hotel there were loads of shops (like Target) and fast food places. So anyone that wanted to go shopping for last minute supplies or even grab a snack could easily walk.
This is considered an "extended stay" hotel so there is no breakfast provided but there was free coffee both in the room and down stairs in the lobby area. Plus there was a full kitchen in each room so you could bring supplies for meals- or walk across the street to buy supplies.
It was clean and the staff was quite helpful.
