“Business stop on the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

As usual, Hampton Inns are consistent in delivering quality rooms and breakfast. This one was a room with king bed and balcony. Bed was comfortable. Room very spacious with desk and couch. Didn't have much time in the morning to enjoy as I had early conference to attend on the island the next morning. The refrigerator and microwave are a great addition when you have extended stay and need food in the room.

Huge aquarium in the lobby is something you won't see at other Hamptons.

To quote another TripAdvisor member, my room also faced the oh-so-scenic Walmart. But it was quiet, and that is what is very important to me.

So once again, given a choice, I will choose Hampton over other hotel chains.

-We stayed here 1 night while on a longer trip to Houston. (FYI-about an hour trip to Galveston from Houston)
-The hotel was beautiful & the rooms were very clean, spacious & updated. The bed was very comfortable, & it was nice to have a refrigerator & microwave.
-We enjoyed the outdoor pool, but found it odd they had no towels at the pool.
-The hotel is a short walk to the beach. (And while this has nothing to do with the hotel, we were very unimpressed with the beaches in Galveston.... dirty sand, dirty water...by far the worst beach we've visited.)
-Our room had a nice, spacious balcony that we enjoyed but didn't enjoy looking at a Walmart, so if you're expecting beautiful ocean views you're going to be disappointed.
-Enjoyable continental breakfast.
-The front desk staff were wonderful!! They were all very friendly, helpful & personable!
My husband & I travel a lot -for both business & pleasure, & this was a wonderful hotel unfortunately in a city we did not enjoy so we will probably not be back.

You can't say that there is anything particularly special about this hotel, but it does deliver on what I have found to be fairly consistent, decent quality of Hampton Inn's. We had a very spacious suite, with a large balcony for our stay. It was quiet, even though our room faced the oh-so-scenic Walmart. It is out of the way from the main parts of Galveston, but most everything is only a bike ride away. It is also across the street from the beach (although not technically on Seawall Blvd, might as well be). We had a good experience and would stay there again if we head back. Given that we could have stayed closer to other side of the island, but the prices would have been much higher or the locations would have been ones that did not get good online reviews, it was a decent value. Not overwhelming, but good for the market of other options.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 404 and the faucet on the shower is a little funny in selecting hot vs cold. I am...

I have been to Galveston many times, but this is my first at the Hampton Inn. This is a little more expensive that my norm, but the rooms are a lot nicer and there was a breakfast included. The rooms were very comfortable and the bed was great. I loved the location as it is so close to the seawall.

I tarvel the world and it seems the hotel prices in Galveston are way too high. Not sure why, but way over priced for Galveston. We never eat the breaksfast because it is the same all the time. Hotels should look into giving coupons to different eateries in town.

So being die hard tripadvisors we looked at the reviews before booking a room. The original hotel we booked turned out to be terrible, our room smelled bad, etc. So we called Hampton and they had 1 room left. What a difference it made to have a nice, well kept hotel. People were nice, free breakfast and clean rooms.

We had a small group in town to see a show at the 1894 Grand. The rooms were spacious and clean. The rooms were quiet and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is across the street from Wal-Mart, which is super convenient. The beach is less than a block away.
