“Very Nice Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Our family visits Galveston often and usually we book a beach house with VRBO or stay at the Galvez. I took a chance on this property because it is directly on the beach. It is a beautiful property that kind of reminded me of the Galvestonian. The rooms are updated and modern make sure to book a suite. The only downside is the check-in/check/out times 4pm and 10am. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone staying on the island.

The room was amazing! We didn't expect it to be that nice and spacious. Our view was great and had a beautiful view of the ocean. The best part was watching the sunrise from our balcony in the morning. I'd def. Return to this hotel next time.

... from your beautiful view from this great hotel / resort. We had a West Wing suite, with king bedroom, sofa layaway, and four-chair balcony overlooking the beach and end of the island. We had everything we needed in and out of the room. Fridge, oven, washer and dryer, deep jetted tub .... boardwalk to the beach, attractive pool, sand dunes, and a comfortable one-hour walk between the posts, with a sense of privacy generated by the bordering houses. Felt more like a neighborhood than a hotel.

Pros:
1. We had a 1 bedroom handicap accessible condo with full kitchen, washer/dryer, king size bed, separate shower, jetted tub, and great views from our balcony. Our balcony had 4 chairs & 2 small tables & it looked out onto the ocean. It was great.
2. The condo is on the beach (so you don't have to cross the road) and there's a nice walk way down to the beach. There are a few steps from the walkway onto the sand, but you can also drive your car right up to the edge of the beach area and walk out with no steps.
3. We picked up a few items from Walmart (breakfast food & coffee) and enjoyed leisurely mornings watching the surf. For dinner we went to Bubba Gumps, and also ordered good food from The Jungle (they deliver!).
Cons:
1. Our condo was located right over the pool, which I didn't love, but as it turned out, it actually made it kind of interesting & fun to watch kids playing, etc.
2. Our smoke alarm went off 2 mornings about 8 am. They said it's common when someone fries bacon or cooks breakfast. They sent someone up to check, and our neighbor was indeed cooking - you could small bacon!
3. You park on ground level, and go up elevators to 1st floor and walk outside to get to the middle of bldg. for check in - a little tricky to figure out where to go to check in!

It's a Holiday Inn Vacation, Timeshare, but open to the public Hotel. Nothing special right? Wrong!!!! Helen at the front desk made it special! She bent over backwards to find us the best room available an said "She ain't happy till we are!" She did just that. We were going to stay one or two nights but decided on three. We have the one bedroom suite for less than we would have paid for just a room downtown. And its right on the beach. Infinity pool and the beach is cleaned daily. Great place and excellent value. The help here is terrific! Thanks Helen!

This was our third visit to the Holiday Inn Club Galveston Beach Resort. Each time has been better than the previous. We are looking forward to coming back next year.
The staff is very helpful, especially the front desk. Sandy who is there during the weekdays has been on duty for all of our visits.
The pool is very inviting, and there is a wonderful view of the Gulf from the pool. Most of the views from the rooms are very good as well.

Our family took a mini vacation at the end of summer. We had forgotten to pack a few items for our beach barbecue and realized that the kitchen comes fully stocked with appliances, plates, cups, etc. The rooms were modern and clean and we had a wonderful view of the ocean. The beach was not crowded and so much nicer than further down the wall where you have to cross the busy main street. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We took advantage of the onsite grills, volleyball net, easy beach access, balcony with ocean view, onsite pool and jacuzzi, deep garden tub in the "master" br, and washer/dryer. It's everything you need for a reasonably priced, quick beach vacation. We will definitely visit again. Once they finish renovations, this will be perfect. Make sure you look at the layout and get a true ocean view room (hotel is U shaped, so technically every room has an ocean view but some views beat others) and come to relax. I've stayed in fancier hotels but this was perfect for what is offered.
