“Nice view & location for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Stayed at the Country Inn for one night. The hotel is as close as you can get to Seawall without actually being on it. My room had a king bed, nice size bathroom and a little balcony (enough for two people to sit comfortably) which had a great unrestricted view of the gulf. The location is excellent as there are a bunch of bars and a convenience store within a couple hundred feet of the hotel. In addition the beach is right across the street and a large pier within a quarter mile. Room was clean and hotel seemed nice.
I'm going to give the couple negatives which are really picky but overall wouldn't stop me from staying or recommending this hotel. The breakfast had a solid selection but at 6:15am, the eggs & potatoes were cold. The indoor pool was too cold to use. The front desk had zero restaurant recommendations and with going at a "non-peak" time - parking was close to full (clearly not a spot for every room)
I paid $65 for the night which was great value. I would stay there again despite the couple negatives.

Room Tip: Ask for room that faces the gulf

Pretty Simple ,but great staff ,very comfortable bed ,quiet ,clean,next to mayor restaurants and most of the seawall attractions, also they offer a complimentary breakfast with a good variety of choices to pick from ,this was a big plus thought , Overall everything together, made our stay very enjoyable, I will pick this place on my future visit to the Island.

Room Tip: 3rd floor ,rooms south side are quieter.

I chose this property based on other reviews. I coordinated a cruise itinerary for two couples arriving IAH, departing with Disney Cruises out of Galveston, then returning Galveston and flying out from IAH a day after the cruise. The front desk helped coordinate the arrival transportation, shuttles to and from and back to IAH in Houston. Anna, at the front desk was terrific! Meal comb who checked us in was terrific! Nick the driver was terrific. The property, the room, the breakfast, guest services and the whole experience was perfect. I've joined Carlson Club as a result. Would hope this to happen again any time!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the park-- either direction is fine, the park very attractive at night!

On the boardwalk, next to all the major restaurants and beach. Best service ever, and super hot jacuzzi. We drove here from San Francisco to catch a cruise, we have lots of hotel experience, and this place is the all round best. Malcolm was our desk person, he was super genuine and nice. He helped us find our way around and even gave us a free room upgrade.

Came here for Lone Star Rally as a contractor working an event, was a great spot with good parking. A bit loud due to all the bikes at night during Lone Star Rally but that's what I get. Staff was nice, but could have been a bit cleaner.

Room Tip: Do not smoke on the patio!

What a find! This obviously is not a 5 star property, but the service is worth 10 stars! Eva checked me in, gave me a great room with the best view in town. She even remembered my name the next morning! The desk clerk in the early am was very accommodating as well. The breakfast was first class on real plates with a great selection. The Hotel was spotless and the price was about 60 bucks with tax. You can't beat that nowdays! The room was just as nice as any 3 or 4 star hotel anywhere even though they are given a 2.5 star rating on Priceline. This place is great for families too and close to everything. Can't go wrong here!

right on seafront but not noisy when we were there. clean comfortable rooms. and, what a surprise, a bar with more than 40 regional beers just seconds from the door. breakfast nice as expected. hotel is walking distance from pier with roller coaster and other attractions recently rebuilt and in tip top condition.

Room Tip: high floor with sea views best
