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...

Went down for the day and decided to stay. Booked using a free reward from another company. It is not luxury or on the beach. Family of 4 (2 kids under 6) traveling on a whim. Front desk attendant was nice, check in easy. Room was average size, had a refrigerator that was clean. The light in the bathroom was...

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 Clean, outdated, good customer service...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.

Excellent breakfast compared to Gaidos INN. The room is not smelly unlike Gaidos never been shampooed, nasty smelly carpet. Good front desk people unlike Gaidos seaside InN, too old school & rude.The people here will welcome you warmly.😃stayed here for a night July 12.

Like something out of a Steinbeck novel. Previous occupants leftovers were still in the fridge. Toilet works periodically. Place smells like an armpit. This joint is a bulldoze and rebuild job. The soap was nice.

The map shows the Inn located on a horseshoe drive, it's not. It's off a busy 4 lane road with no sidewalks to get down to the beach area. The room was nice enough for the price, the bed was ok if you like them hard as a rock. There is also a policy of charging your card the same...

Very nice front desk personnel. Rooms are nice. Appear to be updated. I was impressed for the price. Very comfy mattress. And fluffy pillows. Flat screen tv. Lots of hot water. Great water pressure. And they have pet rooms. You can bring your furry friends. For $35. You get $20 back if no damage to room. We brought out crate...
