Travelodge Galveston
Ranked #45 of 51 Hotels in Galveston

The price was right for a quick vacation but you definitely get what you pay for. When we arrived to check-in there was no one in the lobby to help us. We waited in the lobby for about 10 minutes before seeing anyone. I even tried calling the hotel while we were waiting but the phone just rang and rang and eventually went to a voicemail. The rooms looked nice but they were very noisy. Many of the guests were hanging out outside their doors until late hours and it sounded like people were running, jumping, and moving furniture in the room above us until the early am hours. The location is the only real plus for this hotel.

I had high hopes for this place. It is a good location but what I cannot deal with is a room that is NOT clean. It has the potential to be a nice older motel but it is just a total lack of care for the place. One of the drawers in our room had chip crumbs all in it, found black hairs on the pillow case, my daughter was shocked when she went to use the blow dryer, coffee pot still had water in it from previous guest and the absolute worst part is there was urine all around the base of the toilet. We left the free continental breakfast. Some of the food did not even have tongs to pick up food and breakfast room was incredibly small. The pool area is super small and when we went to swim at night the pool area did not even have lights. We also had the pleasure of having 5 kids running up and down the hallway from about midnight until 2 a.m. When checking out we told guy at front desk about the things we were disappointed with and he just said "oh". He had the personality of a wall, did not care at all that we were unhappy. In fact if we had not spoken to him I don't think he would have spoken to us. Such a shame that a place is this bad just from lack of care about what the place looks like.

My my family and I stayed here recently before going on a cruise out of Galveston. This place is a complete dump. I have been a pilot for 25 years and have stayed in too many hotels/motels to count during that time. This is by far the worst dump I have ever seen in all those years! The rooms are disgusting. Our room looked like it had not been cleaned. dirt on the floor, hair on the sheets, stained bedspreads....... I could go on and on. The staff could care less about any of these problems. There are plenty of nice hotels/ motels in the area, take my advice and steer clear of this one.

Stayed 2 nights. Location is good, barely a block from the beach and restaurants. Front desk was ok. Breakfast is basic. Pool is small. Tons of parking. Room is good size with loveseat, small table with 2 chair, 2 nightstands, 4 lamps, flatscreen tv with cable, microwave, fridge, dresser and luggage table. Bed was clean and comfortable. Good water temp and pressure. All was clean enough, but not spotless. Rate was too high, but that's Galveston.
