“Good enough for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We stayed here for one night with our two kids when we decided to drive in late one night before going to our condo the next day. It was clean and quiet. Only a short walk to the Seawall and beach. Continental breakfast was basic but ok. For $40 we were happy with it. Would stay again for a low cost option. Did see some unsavory-looking characters in the parking lot at night but everyone was friendly and we had no problems.

We just returned from the Beachcomber Inn. We were only going to be in Galveston for one day and after checking other hotels we decided to book a room here. We were not sorry. Chris at the front desk was so helpful and very friendly. We got to the hotel early and he had a room ready for us. The room was very clean and quite. It is not a five star hotel but it also does not have a five star price. For the price we found it clean and had everything that we needed.
We plan to return with our family. The price is reasonable enough that you could rent two adjoining rooms and still be under what most hotels cost.

Room Tip: We stayed on the other side of the hotel from the Waffle House. If possible try for that side of th...

I have never written a review for a hotel before, but my experience here was so terrible, I felt I had to warn others.
Everything seemed fine when we checked in to our room, but the next morning we awoke to a strong smell of urine. I discovered that my side of the bed had clearly been wetted, and the hotel had simply put a clean mattress protector over it (they cars not possibly have failed to notice).
During the night it had soaked through and completely saturated by pyjamas.
I have never had to sleep in someone else's wee before!
When I tod the management the next day, there was no apology, and no hint of any remorse.
Do NOT stay in this horrible hotel.

Stayed during a Mardi Gras weekend, so paid triple the non-peak room rate. Asked for non-smoking room at time of reservation. First room offered to us on second floor smelled of cigarette smoke so luckily, there was another room on lower level that was available when we asked for a room change. Clean but room didn't have a chair or small sofa to sit on, so we ended up sitting on the bed if we needed to watch TV. Close to beach but not beachfront. Entrance door to room had a small gap underneath where it meets the threshold, which allowed the outdoor lights at night to shine through and let us always hear if someone was walking or talking in front of our room. Not good for light sleepers. Two thin pillows, so bring your extra pillow if you need more support. Mini fridge available. Staff at check-in and check-out were friendly. Didn't stay to try the continental breakfast. Would I stay here again? Only if I needed a place to stay overnight, not longer.

Love it..close to the beach and the rooms have everything you need... pet friendly. Better than others..we check others and no body would accept pets they did at not extra charge. Rooms are clean with a mini fridge, safe.

Husband and family in Galveston for surgery at UTMB Sealy Hospital. 10-15 min drive. Plenty of parking. Wi-Fi no problems. None of usual beach hotel problems. No sand, carpets clean. Heat already on at our arrival. Should of noted settings- we turned off then up and down. Should have asked office for best setting. 2 days to find it again. 4 day stay. Good standard cont. breakfast. Got requested adjoining rooms. Only thing not as advertised was no table in one room. Discounts used from hospital list- ask front desk. Best under 45$ hotel stayed at in last 10 years. 4 people -same room price.

Room Tip: Coffee made on request Staff listening to needs of visitors. Call or ask in office.
