We booked this hotel because it was close to the cruise ship terminal, but it didn't live up to the good reviews we read. I have stayed at Super 8's that are cleaner and more comfortable than this hotel. The room itself was spacious, but the bathtub was filthy - a little bleach would be a good investment for this hotel! They could also invest in some pillows with substance instead of ones that feel like your using a rolled up pillow case. The walls are paper thin - we could easily hear the entire conversation of the people in the room next to us and they weren't shouting. Plus the breakfast room is located on the same floor as the bedrooms which means lots of noise early in the morning. The "breakfast" was not appealing and there were too many people for the small location, so we went out for breakfast. At least there were some excellent restaurants nearby! If I ever take a cruise from Galveston again, I will book a hotel further away from the terminal so I don't get gouged by the price.
