The hotel is old - so old that it has outdoor entrances, and I don't think that is made clear. The rooms are painted dark colors - not beachy at all. There are small windows and a fire door leading out to a tiny balcony - really weird. The carpet and furniture is old. They are charging a premium for... More

We stayed here August 20. Pre cruise. A very nice and clean place to stay nice room on floor 6 great view of the beaches. Neat pool area where movies are shown by the poolside in the evenings. Will be ready to stay again next time we are here. Good location close to beaches and cruise terminal.

Front desk is pleasant. Location is good. View is nice, as you have view of the beach. Now, the rooms need work. Bathroom looks old. I took a picture of the bathroom door frame so you could understand what I mean. The beds are decent. However, when I payed down and looked up, I noticed water damage on the ceiling... More

My family stayed at Holiday Inn Resort in Galveston close to the beach for one night. It was over priced. I paid over $300 for one night without breakfast being included. The layout of the hotel is terrible. It is a lot of walking. I was glad I had my electric mobility. We dropped off our luggage and went to... More

Nothing about the experience was bad. The front desk personnel were pleasant there was a decent wireless signal and all employees encountered were friendly. If you have children and are looking for a moderately priced hotel this may be the place for you. The pool is geared toward children (they show family movies at the pool at night) The room... More

Before we arrived at the hotel, I specifically requested a higher room so we could get a view and some quiet. Upon arriving, the check in system was down and there were people milling about the property. We were exhausted from a ten hour drive in a small car with two toddlers so the wait for us was not pleasant.... More

Reasonably priced hotel for Galveston. Hotel staff was courteous and friendly and the room and grounds were clean. Only negative is that because room was booked through 3rd party vendor the room assigned was on a lower floor and the "view" was the air conditioning equipment on the room directly in front of it. To get a room on a... More

We stayed at 3 different hotels on the sea wall. This holiday inn was clean. Nice location. Nice sized pool. Got it for a decent price. THe negatives... All holiday inns we have stayed at include breakfast. The first night we stayed, breakfast was included. We decided to stay a 2nd night and then it wasn't included. Kind of weird.... More
