I'll start with some pros to be fair: 1) this is one of the few places in the area where you can get two queen size beds (as opposed to two doubles) in a room; and 2) you do get a microwave and a fridge, which is pretty good at this price point. It's pretty much downhill from there. There was an absolutely overpowering smell of cleaning chemicals. The rooms, carpet, and furniture were dark, the sheets were damp, the bathroom was dingy, and the back entrance (a heavily traveled area) was constantly wet , slick, and moldy due to dripping condensate. The walls and floors did not provide acceptable sound isolation. While it's not fair to say that this property is run down, it certainly is getting there. My wife insisted that we leave after one night. If you do decide to stay here (or at the neighboring Hampton or Fairfield Inn), it is only 15-20 minutes to Galveston. Note that there isn't terribly much in the area other than the Mall of the Mainland, which is half dead anyway.
