We stayed a couple of nights during Spring Break. This is my new favorite hotel in Galveston mainly b/c the staff.. Everyone from the Front Desk, Housekeeping, groundskeepers, always had a smile on their face. They always made eye contact and ask "how are you doing". They had a good kids program The Kids Activity Director was a really nice woman. We talked to her a bit while our kids played and made some crafts in the kids room. She seemed to really love her job and seemed passionate about making it a good program.
The rooms were very clean. I checked for bed bugs and none in our room. We ate at the hotel restaurant one night and though the food was reasonably priced and tasted pretty good. The hotel is directly across the seawall. There is no crosswalk directly in front of the hotel, but there is one on the other side of the San Louis hotel (not too far).
We'll definitely be back later in the summer.
