Price was good considering the location. Just a block from the beach. People that work there are nice. Spent Thanksgiving weekend there 2016. Rooms are smelly. We had two of them. One had syringe caps under (to the side really as there was no "under" the bed. Pretty nasty but at least the actual needles were not there. Room 137... More

Dear James P.; Thank you for your remarks as we take our customer experience very serious. We constantly fight the humidity of Galveston and the musty smells associated with it. We will be looking into the housekeeper and condition of the mattress of room 137 and we are sorry for any inconvenience. Again, thank you for your comments. More

The staff was wonderful, breakfast was adequate. Room 244 was very pleasant, I was very surprised because with a direct weekday book they give you a 10% discount. Our room with tax was around $ 40.00. Fresh linens and plenty of towels. Will stay again.

The usual discounts netted a room rat of around $40. The room was clean and well maintained with friendly staff. Breakfast included cereal, bagels, Oatmeal hard boiled eggs and coffee which was a nice selection.

My husband and I checked into the Beachcomber Inn yesterday after spending two nights in another hotel on the seawall that was, let's say, not worth the money we paid! We brought our two dogs. At the other hotel they were constantly barking at every little noise they heard. We were up all night with the dogs barking constantly. We... More

We were looking for budget accommodation for part of our road trip, but unfortunately there’s nothing budget about Galveston in July. This place seemed the most reasonably priced accommodation with a decent location, although it’s a bit care worn and could do with some TLC. It’s a short walk to the beach, but you need to cross a four lane... More

Hotel is a few blocks from beach.... We were staying overnight on the way home from south padre..... Clean, outdated, good customer service... Small pool... Crappy towels.... Would have happily paid $75 ... $165 because it is July was highway robbery.

I had specifically asked for a non smoking room! It was the first thing I noticed when I walked in and then there was a "non smoking" sign at the table... Ironic. The stink of the place woke me out of my sleep! That's how bad it was!

Bathroom was big. Beds were small (queens). Worked for a last minute stay. Dogs barking in another room. You can hear the people getting up early for fishing and beach going. I would recommend this as a last minute stay, but not if you are looking for a great hotel experience. Less than 1 mile from beach.
