3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here YEARS ago every summer before major renovations, still a classic. Have wanted to come back for years but it became too pricey for a one night getaway plus kids and life happened. I live less than 3 hours away so one nighters are popular w/us AND I found a bargain for a b'day celebration. Booked thru tripadvisor and... More

My girlfriend from Maui came to visit and we left the city and headed to Galveston for a brief getaway. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The hotel property is beautiful and the service is amazing. We had the best of both worlds - we stayed in the hotel in a room with a beautiful view... More

Like other reviewers have indicated, I didn't feel the room was that great, at least not for what you're paying. We had a "premium" room with 2 queen beds on the 11th floor, with a great view of the ocean. But the room (and bathroom) was on the small side, and we had a few other issues: bath tub and... More

Stayed here Thanksgiving night before we went on a cruise. They have an outdoor heated pool and several restaurants including a Starbucks. Cruise parking is offered here and they have a shuttle to and from the cruise terminal. Customer service was great.

First impression was the grounds were beautiful. Not impressed with the self parking, but at least there's an option. We had to wait 45 minutes after check in to get a room, the lobby was full of very unhappy people.

San Luis never disappoints for a weekend getaway with the hubby and other couples! Gorgeous rooms, good views, great fun with good music and beverages at the pool, and plenty of restaurant and bar choices at San Luis and on The Strand or Seawall pending your mood. Perfect weekend with friends! 😎
