My review is only based on a single night stay when we passed through Galveston recently to check out the beach and tour the Johnson Spacecenter in Houston. The location of the hotel turned out much better than I expected when I discovered after booking that it was only 1/2 block from Pleasure Pier. And the beach is directly across the street with a few restaurants a short walk away.
The room was very clean, modern and comfortable. The mattress was firm and the pillows were very, very soft. We sleep extremely well and were very satisfied with the room. The fridge and coffee maker were also nice touches. The room had a pool and ocean view, which was a big plus. You should definitely request this type of room if available.
The service attendants were very courteous and I had a much more positive experience than other visitors who also wrote on this site. I'd say service was excellent and non-issue.
Also keep in mind that this hotel does NOT include a complimentary breakfast with the room. Yes, they have a "restaurant" but food does cost extra. The breakfast menu looked fairly comprehensive for a smaller hotel, but with only 1 night's stay, we ate elsewhere so I can't comment on the food quality. The lunch/dinner menu (and again, we ate elsewhere that night), looked just OK, but certainly had enough choices to get you by if needed!
Here are a couple negatives: we stayed on the 3rd floor and despite being several rooms down from the elevator, you could still hear the beeps when it opened, which was distracting at 7am!! Also, I wouldn't recommend staying on the first floor as several room are VERY close to the bar and pool entrances.
Overall, we had a very nice stay for only one night and would definitely consider coming back again.
