We stay here everytime we go to Galveston. The Hotel is basic, clean, and quiet. We've never had a safety issue, nor felt 'unsafe'. It is next door to Schlitterbahn, but it's about 3 blocks walking distance to the Schlitterbahn the entry gate, so we still get in our car and drive, but teens can walk it just fine. It is about 5 full blocks from Moody Gardens, but if you can't afford the Moody Gardens more than twice the cost, this is the hotel for you. There is also transportation to the cruise ship terminal, and you can leave your car parked in the hotel parking lot if you spend the night before (they do not guarantee safety though). There is also a pool for guests at the hotel. No Pets Allowed.
The views are nothing to write home about, but it's a place to spend the night that's clean and 'safe' feeling. No tub, but shower has a 3" lip that you can put a washcloth in the drain that you can bathe your baby or young child in (stay with). It has two separate buildings, and we've always stayed in the one detached from the main building, but it only allows entry through a keycard, unlike the main building that registers visitors.
Breakfast is good but go before 8 or after 9 because of seating...cereals including Raisin Bran, Fruit Loops, Frosted Flakes, etc. Bagels, fruit pastries, toast, and a pancake machine that causes more problems than good, so don't count on it. They need two waffle machines to replace the non-working pancake machine. Apple, Cranberry and Orange Juice Machines, coffees, hot chocolate, tea, milk (low fat, reg and fat free, no chocolate).
We will stay here again.
