This hotel is not impressive to look at from the outside, nor is it impressive to look at from the inside; but it is a quality hotel with more good things than bad things. In my opinion, being next door to the San Luis works against it because that hotel looks so majestic. This hotel is right across the street... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn Resort Galveston Beach recently. It was a 4 night stay on points, so when using points, you kind of feel that you are going to be given their bargain basement rooms; not so at this hotel. I had the choice of a twin room, or king bed room. I was... More

I booked my stay through TripAdvisor. This was my first AND LAST time to book through TripAdvisor. First they have a 3 day cancellation policy or forfeit of one night's fee. If you book through a 3rd party you get a room on the first floor with no view or balcony. This hotel is an OPEN CORRIDOR hotel so all... More

My office booked this room for business travel. There is music blaring at the pool until 11 p.m. All of the doors to the rooms are on the backside and outside. Some outlets didn't work. If I was looking for a hotel to come and get drunk with people and party this would be great, but since I had to... More

Did not enjoy stay. Not accommodating at all. Do not recommend this hotel. Can not check in until late. Paid a very high price through second party. Had no view or balcony. Again do not stay at this hotel.

This is our 3rd time using this hotel the night before our cruise and so much has changed since the year we missed; it is sooooo family friendly! The pool has more children things; floaties, the dumping bucket, the staff came around multiple times asking if we needed anything, and interacted with my son. Our room was a family suite... More
