“better than expected ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

after much searching and review reading, I decided to book this hotel. when my husband, boys and I arrived our expectations where well met . the beds are very comfortable, the rooms, lobby and pool are very clean. the staff was very helpful and pleasant. the bistros in the lobby is" ok" .. a bit over priced but there are plenty of other eateries close by!

We enjoyed our beach front balcony. The pool is very nice. Perfect for couples and families. The bistro is over priced. The room is overpriced. Our room didn't even get cleaned one day. It was ok. We'll look for a different hotel next time we go.

Breakfast was lacking but the girl who worked the breakfast more than made up for that. She was the sweetest most attentive person. Room was nice and had sofa bed for the kid. Close to the water and pier. Price was right...would for sure stay again.

I mainly chose Courtyard due to its reward program, but it turned out to be an excellent place to stay. It is further out from the main part of the seawall hotels, but that made it quieter. We did have to drive to any activities we wanted to do, but that was ok. Nothing is too far on an island. Room size was good, we reserved a balcony room so we could look out over the ocean. No beach across from the hotel, just rocks in front of the seawall. The Bistro is good, we ate breakfast there one morning. There is a good pool in the back, only down side is the pool is shared with Townsuites so it was very crowded most of the time. Overall I would recommend Courtyard as a good place to lay your head in Galveston.

Just returned from a wonderful stay here. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were extremely clean and fresh. The housekeepers were very nice and did a wonderful job. There was also a wonderful pool that was great for little kids. Everything was wonderful. A beautiful view of the ocean and Seawall. It was worth the money to have such a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: I asked for a room to see the pool area so I could keep track of the family. It was great.

This hotel appears to be somewhat new. Very clean. Room size is good with a king you get a couch good size bathroom, good views, not many balconies, and a small restaurant. We booked it because of the reasonable price and the type of pool they have. Larger than most pools, outside bar and food service, private cabanas that are way overpriced, lots of umbrellas and not so comfortable lounge chairs.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with balconies when you make reservations

This hotel is only about a year old, and it is right on the sea wall. It had a great pool area for kids, free garage parking and Starbucks in the lobby. At checkin, they even carried our bags up to the room..at a Courtyard! My only suggestions are two: housekeeping could do a better job, and the front desk folks could be a little more helpful and friendly. Otherwise great hotel!
