I'll admit. I'm picky. But this place is in need of the "Hotel Impossible" guy. To clarify, it is an inn, not a hotel.
I'll start with the bad:
The lobby is a cluttered hodge-podge of old furniture and loud carpet. The front desk is sometimes manned and other times there's no one to be found.
The room- When I arrived at our room, there was a big spit wad in front of the door. The door itself was beat up. The room was large, and it was okay, but not as clean as I would like. The beds had a sheet on the mattress, but nothing covering the boxspring. The bathroom did not look dirty, but it didn't look clean either. I don't think it would pass a thorough inspection. There was an odd smell in the room. Not terrible, but odd.
The curtains didn't cover the sides of the windows, so outside lights were glaring in at night. The TV stopped working after about thirty minutes, but the maintenance worker came in and fixed it.
The breakfast was juice, coffee, cold cereal, muffins, and a pancake maker.
The grounds were nice and there was a miniature golf course in front. The beds were comfortable enough. The sheets and pillows seemed clean. The price of the room, which is around $70./nite included breakfast, a place to park your car all week for cruise guests, and a free shuttle to and from the pier, which was prompt and reliable.
The location was very good; it is close to Moody Gardens and the Schlitterban, and only about ten minutes drive to the cruise pier or beach. It's family friendly.
Overall, it's an okay place to stay if your not picky. My car was safe there all week. Good value for the money. It's not the Ritz, but it'll do.
