Wonderful dog friendly place close to pleasure pier and just across from the seawall. They serve a popular breakfast buffet on the weekend. Very popular with wedding receptions as well. Very friendly and helpful staff with a good internship program.

Staying in Galveston during a business/vacation stay. Decided to stay at this historic hotel to experience some of the historic charm of the area. This is a very comfortable hotel situated in a great location for anyone wanting to see both the downtown area of the old town and the seawall. You are in comfortable walking distance of these areas....

I was recently discriminated against at this hotel because of a brain disorder that I have. I won't get into the details but she traumatized me. My disability is protected under the ADA and would hate to file charges against the hotel in the county court. That would be a lawsuit that could cost up to 110,00 dollars. Please contact...

This is an historic hotel, build around 1910. The public spaces in the hotel, at ground level, are very pleasant. The food service was quite good. The ocean is directly in front of the hotel, just across Seawall Boulevard, and the water is easily visible from the hotel. Internet was included in my booking (which was made for me by...

The heated pool and nicely designed and maintained hot tub makes this a top pick for us. Right on the beach gives immediate access and beautiful views from the hotel.
