My husband and I were very happy staying at Howard Johnson Galveston. The room was clean, the water was hot and the staff were so friendly. Its been a while since we have stayed overnight anywhere and it was a great experience!

Me and my wife stayed here for our honeymoon! Great service, soft beds, great continental breakfast, and decent distant from the beach approximately 5 minutes driving. The employee Todd was extremely helpful in letting us know great places to get a late night dinner. I will definitely come back to this hotel. We did hear trains throughout the night but... More
