I was very Surprised by the personal treatment that I received. I booked online for the nexr day. On the next morning I received a phone call by the front desk. They were calling to confirm my arrival time. I was wondering why, so I asked! They said so we can have your room ready for you. Normal check in...

A week before Christmas flew into Hobby airport, in Houston, then drove 45 minutes south to Galveston Island looking for an escape from the cold and snow of Michigan. As fate would have it the proverbial cold front struck and we experienced weather we had just left in Michigan :( The wind was so strong that freezing cold air rushed...

Took family down on a last minute get away in December and spent a night here. Older hotel but HiEx has done a good job on the remodel and the location is hard to beat for the price. Plenty of parking.

Room and hotel was clean and quiet. Restaurant had good food and great service. Awesome ocean views, very friendly staff and the price was reasonable. Highly recommended, I'd definitely stay here again.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel lobby is beautiful and right on the beach. Larry, our check in guy, was great! Very friendly and helpful; he got us checked in, signed us up with the complimentary shuttle to the cruise dock for the next morning and did it with a smile. We had a few issues...

As I write this review, its just after 1 AM and the band has finally stopped playing. Its freezing cold in our room because the "heater" only blows cold air so i turned it off. I travel a lot, and am pretty low maintenance, but c'mon....no heat when it's 30 outside? Really? Very disapointed, but thank goodness only one night....

Only one person at the front desk which resulted in very slow check in - not his fault, there should be two people on at all times. The room was OK, but found what looked like dried blood drips on the toilet seat and there was a novelty pin on the bathroom counter .... hmmm...sounds like the cleaning person needs...

The room was wonderful with a view of the ocean across the street. The staff was wonderful. Restaurant in the hotel was very good. They had a very nice lounge and even offered free parking and shuttle service for the cruise ships. They charge more for the top two floors ocean views. 6th floor and under had a great view.

If your Idea of value is a balcony overlooking the seawall for around $100 per night...then this place is for you. However, don't expect the view to be perfect (see photos). You'll have to look through the railings, passed an ugly roof and cleaning supplies, to the sea beyond. We were personally very pleased. The staff we talked to was...

I have stayed in NUMEROUS hotels on Seawall Boulevard and never stayed in a hotel without any view at all until I stayed at the Holiday Inn (regardless of how I booked the room, or how much the room cost). I guess it's my fault. I booked the hotel through Priceline (for a fair price - not ridiculously low). I...
