The staff was very friendly at check in and check out, but upon arriving at the hotel, the first thing you notice is the high security fence. It felt like pulling into a prison parking lot. The lobby was pretty messy and the rooms were not very sound-proofed.

Right next to the beach, which was awesome! It was very clean, and well kept hotel. Staff was super nice, and friendly as well, they offered breakfast which was a plus. Amazing visit, and will for sure be back.

The rooms are suites with full kitchens and stocked full of basics needs if you want to cook a meal and prepare something. You have a stove, oven, microwave, toaster and anything else you you may need. The rooms are pretty clean but beware the rooms are not cleaned daily. You have to return your towels to the desk to...

Rooms were clean, comfortable with full kitchen and stocked with essentials for an extended stay. The suite we were in had a separate bedroom from the living area making it quite spacious. The facility was older, but reasonably well maintained. The staff was friendly and unusually helpful. The price was low for the Galveston area and as such, I felt...

We booked this stay for a wedding in Galveston. We had planned to bring our puppy and were looking for something budget friendly to do so and absorb the pet cost. However, then we all fell ill with strep throat and made other arrangements for the dog. The staff were super friendly and it was nice to have coffee available...

Although the hotel is not on the beach, it is a great location and easily accessible. We had two rooms and the staff put us close together for easy access. Full size fridge, microwave, stovetop and a dishwasher! Target close by for last minute items. The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating.
