I am puzzled by the negative reviews. Other than the lack of towels (and that's not a huge deal) there is nothing to complain about. Nice, clean rooms, great pool, AWESOME coffee (please never change it!) and wonderful staff.
I only have two very, very minor complaints. For one, while I think it's awesome that the hotel allows pets, it might be nice if there was a particular section for guests with animals. I only bring this up because the first night of my most recent stay (August 25-29th) the folks next to our room had a fairly loud dog. Again, not a big deal, but that might be an idea for ya'll to consider. Secondly, it appeared to me that there were no smoking rooms with pool or ocean views. I am not sure if this is deliberate on the part of the hotel, or if I just wasn't looking very well. I do not smoke myself, but my mother does, and I believe that her money is just as good as a non-smokers, and it would be nice if she might potentially stay in a room with a view on future stays.
Again, these are very minor observations, and I can guarantee that I will be back, and that I will recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay on Galveston. The location is perfect, the staff was INCREDIBLY pleasant, the rooms were clean. I do not know why anyone would give this hotel anything less than a 4.5 rating.
(P.S. please, please never change the coffee!)
