I enjoyed our stay and the place is a very convenient stay to the harbor, fishing trips and The Strand. The desk did seem a bit weird (slow to respond) and understaffed. The lighting also was off in the rooms. Our night table light came on without reason and there was no overhead lighting. There was something going on with the lighting electrically in the switches and was some design that I was not accustom to for one switch operated several lights. The bath area was small; but, worked fine. The big door entering that area did get "in the way" a lot. There were only 2 of us so we worked around it. As another review pointed out, we could use the other two hotels and the pool at the Galvez was wonderful and they also offer Free bikes!!
Also there was a $10 parking fee nightly; but, I really feel that this reasonable because parking is tight and there can be much traffic in the area especially when all of the cruise ships are on the scene.
Also the breakfast is on the 2nd floor and could use milk and cereal. Fruit would be nice as well. There was yogurt, raisin toast, buns, orange/apple juice. I did not see coffee either but maybe because it is offered in the room!!
It was all a nice mid-week night stay and we really enjoyed Galveston!!
