I'm always thrilled when my room is ready before the promised time, and this one was. The room was clean and quiet. I booked the hotel for a one-night stay pre-cruise and discovered after checking in that you can leave your car there and they have a shuttle to take you directly to the pier. I don't recall seeing that on their website, but that is a nice perk.
The front desk personnel were really nice.
The only negative thing about the hotel was the food. For dinner, I had an avocado w/ half of it with chicken salad and the other half with tuna salad and crackers. The crackers were old and the salads were bland. I also can't stand the little fatty part on chicken and my first bite had that, so I just left the rest of it. Service was not good, either.
The location is really good. It's right across from the seawall and it's located on the water. After checking in, I walked up and down the street and really enjoyed the relaxation. At the last minute, I decided to take off my shoes and socks and walk on the beach. Lots of dogs running around (well-behaved).
If I return to Galveston, I will definitely stay at this hotel.
