My husband and I went with our friend from Iowa and was very pleased with my choice. I looked at almost all the properties for a location that would meet my two requisites. Having been to Galveston before I knew most properties are across the major road from the beach. You have to be willing to risk your life to get across to take a walk and explore the beach. So I wanted a property on the beach. My second need was for a 2nd bedroom for our friend. All rooms have a view, but we had the end room, 4th floor so no other rooms were seen, just ocean and sand... perfect. Ocean sounds to lull us to sleep, full patio covering both bedrooms and living space made our 2 nights complete.
Only 1 warning, this is a bit out of town and currently no food delivery and there is no close restaurant. But, there is a full kitchen and Kroger grocery to stop at for essentials. They do have items in the lobby for purchase that were more reasonably priced than I would have expected.
The staff was very helpful, I remembered coffee but forgot filters. They handed me a stack when I asked. All the staff that we encountered was more than helpful.
