“Perfect location and great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We stayed there for a few nights during Spring Break. This was a great hotel for the money. Right across from the beach on the seawall, close to everything, loved the balcony and plenty big for a family of 4. The staff was excellent and very friendly. Had one issue with the bathroom and they had it fixed immediately. For those leaving bad reviews, yes, the hotel is a little dated; however, they aren't claiming to be a 5 star hotel or charging for it. It is rated 3 star and every bit as good as the rating. We were very happy with our visit and have stayed in anything from a 1 star to a 5.

Hotel has a great location on the seawall. Rooms are actually condos and ample size for two people. Would be a bit cramped with more adults. Kids would be ok. They have bunk beds to accommodate. Was nice to have the little kitchen. There was a window in the bedroom that opened to the hallway. It had curtains, but was still a bit awkward. It was off season so I never heard noise from other people walking by. Great view of the ocean. Bedroom was in back so no noise from the seawall traffic. Great place to stay!

My husband and I decided to get away for a weekend. We chose the Casa del Mar for the price and availability along with the kitchen in the room. We love to save money by getting a hotel room with a kitchen in it so I can cook breakfast and yummy snacks! We really enjoyed the Casa del Mar. The location was great, which was walking distance to a grocery store, gas station and the Rainforest Cafe. We took our 1 year old son there Friday night and he loved it. The rooms are not 5 star (meaning you can tell it is an older hotel) but they are useful for a family and clean. The staff was great! We had Kendall check us in and he was so sweet and helpful! We would stay here again. The kitchen comes complete with dishes, pots and pans, so you just bring your food! They also have 2 pools available and one of them is heated! We went to the beach for a while but the water was very cold so we went to the warm pool and had a great time!

Room Tip: Most rooms face the ocean but some don't, so be sure to ask if want a view.

All the rooms are lovely at the Casa Del Mar, and my family and I loved our week in this hotel. All the rooms have a wonderful view of the ocean, but the rooms in the front have the best oceanfront view. They have a master bedroom, twin beds for the kids, a kitchenette. They have pans, dishes, and utensils, and a refrigerator, small oven, and microwave. You can go to Kroger which is close by, and enjoy some of your meals in the room or pack a picnic lunch for the beach across the street. They have a sofa bed, and this is one hotel where we gladly return to. The staff is friendly and very helpful! They have a heated pool in case the beach is too cold. We loved this hotel!

Just got back from spring break spent at Casa Del Mar. We rented a private unit from Wilma and Betty Beach Rentals. The condo was really nice and very clean. While these are not large suites, we had our family of five and we were comfortable. We enjoyed being able to walk to restuarants and the beach. Wilma and Betty could not have been any better - took great care of us and it is evident that they take pride in their property. The grounds of Casa Del Mar were well kept and the pools were very clean.

Rented a suite for two nights - one bedroom, two bunkbeds, and a pull-out sofa. It would have been jammed if we had six people in the apartment. Lots of families settling in for the March break. The accommodation was clean, and the kitchen area well equipped, with a coffee maker, a microwave, and a stove. Very close to the beach, it was handy for long walks on the breakwater, and would be great for families heading for the beach. The roads are very busy, so avoid rooms on the east side of the complex, as they directly overlook the road. Two pools were well maintained. Front desk was friendly and helpful. They phoned the day before our last night to offer us a third night for a greatly reduced rate, which would have been very attractive had we been able to stay. Good functional accommodation for a small family or party of three adults.

Came to Galveston 2/2/2013 just to be close to the water. We booked 3 months with Wilma & Betty We will not be staying in this unit #275 is gross and thats me being nice. This unit had no linens only 3 blankets no sheets and no towels at all. The dishes were dirty, the refridgerator had a very foul odor there was the lingering smell of cigarettes, there were bugs cockroaches as well as the little ones. The air vents were covered in lint and had lint trails attached to the wall and ceiling in the flow of air. the mattresses hurt our bodies in the bedroom as well as the pull out nothing has been updated. I caught an upper respiratory infection and both my 3 year old and 6 year old became congested and began to have allergic reactions to the atmosphere inside the unit. Wilma was unwilling to compromise with me on reconciliation she wanted to make my family more uncomfortable and deep clean while we were already moved in. I am a very private person and I dont like people poking around my kids or stuff so i refused i asked for 25% of my money back since I cleaned the unit and because of the falsely advertised condition of the unit and the fact that we had to purchase things that should have been supplied and she refused. My biggest problem though is that she never showed her face, never came to see me, I could never find an address and she sent someone who had nothing to do with her company to bring me a fraudulent lease and take my money!!! All in all Casa Del Mar is a wonderful place. Heated pool, bbq pits, across from the ocean great location I particularly love seeing the older ladies in the pool exercising in the morning :) (reminded me of the movie cocoon) But they are all sweet In our 3 weeks here we have been greeted and gifted by almost all the owners theres even a Winter Texans Program. The atmosphere here is wonderful JUST WATCH OUT WHO YOU RENT FROM!!!!! RYSON IS A GREAT OPTION!!!

Room Tip: Dont Book With Wilma & Betty!

KarenGalveston_Texas, General Manager at Casa Del Mar Beachfront Suites, responded to this review, February 26, 2013
Casa del Mar is made up of 276 individually owned condo suites. The unit referred to in this review is a privately managed unit, not part of the onsite Rental Management Program. The 130 on-site “hotel” program units are professionally managed and follow strict standards and service guidelines including being rated as three diamond by AAA and offering 24/7 on-site service. In this particular case, if there was a web-site (such as VRBO) that you rented through, we encourage you to ask their assistance in resolution as well.

As is the case with many condominium properties, guests should consider issues such as this when deciding whether to rent from a private individual or the on-site management team. We are sorry if you were disappointed with your experience and encourage all potential guests to compare options when making reservations. Please be assured that the rental program management team takes pride in providing our guests with clean, well appointed and comfortable accommodations as well as friendly, professional service. The many Winter Texan you met on the property are a testimony to this as well!
