I have to say first of all that I LOVE Galveston. This was the second year in a row that my organization met in Galveston for our yearly staff development. Last year we stayed at Moody Gardens and had such a wonderful time that we decided to go back to Galveston again this year but stay somewhere different. We decided to try the San Luis Resort. The majority of our group said they had a better time at the San Luis but in my opinion it was due to the activities and not the hotel. the last time I stayed at the San Luis was about ten years ago and it didn't seem that they had even painted the trim in the rooms since then. I was so disappointed. The door to my room stuck every time I opened it because it scraped the floor. The vent in the bathroom was rusted and the tub didn't drain properly. It is an old hotel that needs to be updated or freshened up at the very least. For the price I expect much better. Those are the cons.
The pros... Great view of the ocean and the food was great. The breakfast is a must!
