“Staff made stay worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I booked a King Suite with balcony in Galveston for Labor Day weekend and was uncharacteristically disappointed by the accomodations. A balcony room in Galveston with western exposure gets a lot of heat. That's a lot for the AC to deal with and was getting the best of this one. Due to the heat and humidity, the room also had a musty smell. The thing that saved my stay was the staff helpfulness. I immediately called the front desk to report the AC problem. A mechanic was in my room in 5 minutes. He spent the next 30 minutes doing everything he could to get the room temperature down, successfully. The front desk would have moved me but there were no other non-smoking suites available. Later, when I spoke to the front desk about the musty smell in the room and the problems that the refrigerator, the manager adjusted my bill in an acceptable way.

This hotel by far has been one of the best hotels that my big family and I have ever stayed at. The staff were very polite, helpful, and very friendly. A great hotel for those who have a big family. My kids loved it. The pool was nice and very cleaned. The room was large and very clean. We really enjoyed the chanels on the tv.Thank you for the wonderful service.

Very nice hotel. It was clean, and well layed out. The outdoor pool was lots of fun. But the staff was some of the worst hotel staff I have ever dealt with. Poorly managed! Hampton inn has a policy where if you are not 100% happy with your stay, your first night is free. I stayed at this location for 4 nights, and they would not give me my first night free when I expressed how unsatisified I was. The ice machine did not work, the balcony had a huge bar across it, so there was no view. There was dead cockroaches in the elevator lobby, that were sitting there the whole stay. The front desk agent was so snippy when I expressed my concerns. Why have a policy if you won't use it?

Room Tip: If you want a room with a balcony, don't bother!

Excellent hotel. Good location and clean facility. Showers heads were inadequate for getting a real good shower. Powered eggs are not good. Actually for the price of this hotel, breakfast could be better.

Great hotel. Easy access to the beach and shopping. Friendly staff. Breakfast area was a little cramped on the weekend. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Would definitely consider staying here again if price was right. Walmart located across the street which made shopping a real connivence. Walked to the beach.

This hotel is an example of a good property with poor staff and lack of management. I am told that it is challenging to find good workers in Texas--especially on Galveston Island. Room was not as clean as I am used to for a Hampton Inn; the light in the bathroom did not work; the ice machine on the 4th floor was "closed"---inoperative; the fish tank in the dining area could use a STRONG cleaning; the oatmeal lid would not stay on....and the list goes on. AND, there was no one at the front desk to hear about these points.....so I left without being heard. Paid $250 for a one night stay--hotel was sold out.

my spouse liz stayed a few months ago with friends, so i,m going on her recommendation,staying with rest of the family. i,ve read some of the reviews, and it seems some people may have been in another hotel, as she says it was very good value, staff were really friendly, and breakfast was great.. I should have let her write the review, but she,s always busy. We are on the cruise from Galveston, and hotel will maybe take us down to the boat,if you do go on cruise, make sure you book hotel in advance, this or another hotel,
as rooms tend to get full, also book your car hire with enterprise, as they have local drop off. I,ve been told all about his from my wife. With regards to rooms smelling, etc, she in fact said they were very pleasant, and I can,t see a hilton brand being as bad as any of the reviews, so I will let you know in 2 weeks time, thx craig

Room Tip: will let you know soon.
