My husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. The pool was very nice and easily accessible. The rooms were exceptionally clean and well-kept and our room even had a small kitchenette. Pricing was very reasonable for Galveston Island and the hotel was located within ten minutes of the beach and board walk. Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay.

It's the farthest place to stay in Galveston. Had to drive for everything. All the hotels in Galveston are very pricey, even this one for what it had to offer. It is in bad need of updating the rooms. Clean rooms tho, cool AC. All the rooms over look the pool area with covered parking (liked that the most). The... More

The hotels in Galveston are pricey, and for a one night stay before our cruise I was looking for something clean and cheap to stay. It was clean and cheap, the rooms smelled heavily of air freshener, not a deal breaker though. It was hot/humid when we first went in, but AC worked well. If you need complete darkness when... More

There were roaches crawling all over the place. There is no elevator, so if you are handicapped-- do not stay there, all rooms start on 2nd floor. I could not walk for 3 days after having to climb the stairs. electrical cover came off . turned on shower and handle fell off. Never again

We stayed at the Scottish Inn before our cruise. It was clean and well kept, and the staff was very nice. They dropped us off at the port for our cruise which we was great! Keep in mind that if you don't have a car there aren't many sidewalks and it's very far from most of the amenities of the... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean - but definitely have seen better days. Each room has a closet/wet bar area. This includes a small refrigerator and sink. They do offer a small breakfast area that is pretty limited - cereals, coffee, frozen waffles, etc. The breakfast room and sitting area in the lobby are very... More

It is a little older hotel, and may not have all the fancy amenities that some do, but it was ok. The room was clean, no issues with anything. There is a flat screen TV. The A/C froze me out. it was awesome. The front staff was very friendly. There is a swimming pool. Not very close to the beach.... More
