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

Although not at all fancy, the rooms are clean and comfortable. They have a small buffet breakfast until 10 a.m. with cereals, fruit, breads and great coffee. The hotel offers free shuttle to the cruise terminals. We'll stay there again next time we sail out of Galveston.

We stayed at the Scottish Inn for a quick overnight stay from 4/2/16-4/3/16 for our cruise. Be aware this is not a 5 star hotel and I knew this when I booked it. The young guy that works overnights is very nice. Sadly he doesn't have much access to information and if there is a problem he has not been... More

We had a lovely stay here. Employees went above and beyond to make our stay here great. We had an issue with a taxi not showing up so they drove us to where we wanted to go. The pool was quite chilly for the kids and the rooms were not in the best shape... I think the $100 for the... More

Room was nice and clean. I have only two remarks: porthole windows do not have curtains and let through a lot of light at night as well as in the morning! You won't be able to lie in very long! I had an accident in the bathroom, slipped in the bathtub while taking a shower and hurt my hip. Bath... More
