Our family had a great stay at the Hilton on Galveston Island for $99 per night. The first time I contacted the hotel I was quoted $400 per night. I called again the next night and asked why the rate was so high and she said becuase you are arriving on a saturday. She gave me a AAA rate of $135. We changed our arrival time again and this time I got a rate of $99. Go figure. Ask questions if you are unsure about the rate.
I had read reviews on trip advisor ahead of time so I knew that the rooms were nice, the restaurant expensive, the pool was very nice and that the internet connections were sketchy. All of that was true. The location was fabulous as its located in a nice safe central section of the island that is well maintained. The hotel is very close to the seawall which is what we were looking for.
We had a room that faced the pool and part of the gulf. I had planned ahead of time that we would most likely not eat at the restaurant but use coupons and go to others nearby. There was a really nice Landry's right next door as well as an IHOP that we used quite often. If you ask at the front desk they have coupons for both Landry's and the Rainforest cafe for free appetizers. Split your party up at different tables and use more coupons and less money. For our family of four, we always split resulting in this result. Go to the restaurant websites and join their eclubs for free coupons as well. There is a Krogers two blocks away.
The internet connection was not good in the room, however you could get it to work in the lobby area of the hotel. We used the San Luis pool as well as the pool at the Hilton which were both very nice. Overall, we had a good experience at this hotel.
