5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I really like this hotel. I booked the standard room w. Two beds and the room was big. We had a lot of space and there was a mini fridge, microwave, desk, wifi, coffe maker, etc... really recommend this place!

The manager went out of her way to take care of us and we really appreciate it. The rooms were huge and had a sofa and a separate area with a table, fridge and microwave. This worked great with our infant. The location was great. We were right next to Moody Gardens and only a couple blocks from the seawall. The only thing I would change is the ugly comforters on the beds. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

The hotel was right next to the Waterpark and it was a nice place to stay. Really enjoyed the breakfast every morning and Putt Putt golf.. Will come back here again!! Will request a room with 2 queen beds instead. The room with 2 full beds were the older section and needed a little updating..

Before we checked in, we read some negative reviews. I hope our experience will alleviate some concerns. This is a very well kept older property. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. Our family stayed in a condo nearby and did not have half the space. Our king- size bed was the most comfortable bed I have slept in for a long time. The pillows were perfect! Our family (in two different condos) complained about their beds and pillows. This is an excellent location with easy access to local activities. We stayed in the older part and the bathrooms, including caulking, were free of mold. It is a smoke- free property, which was a plus for us. The continental breakfast was...HEY...a continental breakfast! Some of the reviewers did not seem to understand that concept, so I thought I would clear that up! What is provided is a variety of bagels, Danish, cereal, fresh fruit, juices and pancakes. The coffee is wonderful. We brought our own coffee and pot. We never had to bring it in. If you are not an early riser...yes...you will find the lounge a bit crowded, but so is IHOP! Oh, yeah...it's free! We also enjoyed wifi and a reasonably sized tv. There is a sofa and a dining area with a small refrigerator and microwave. If you are looking for a room with a view, you will not find that here. The windows allow for sunlight only. The grounds are nicely landscaped and there is a nice outside pool. If you are looking for a comfortable place to relax after enjoying local activities, this is a good choice with reasonable rates.

Room Tip: Our room with a king- size bed was wonderful.

The inn was a little old but updated.The amenities were all there that we needed.There is a restaurant on the premises.The pool was a little small but the kids enjoyed it.It was much better than swimming in all the seaweed at the beach.The towels are very absorbent.The beds were comfortable enough.The continental breakfast was very good.The shuttle was very convenient. We called and ask them to pick us up to take us to Moody Gardens they were promptly there.They took us back to the hotel too.All in all I think it is a good pick for those on a budget and are visiting Moody Gardens or Schlitterbauns.

So we stayed 4 nights. The hotel is about 5 minutes from beach, and all shopping on seawall. There is an out dated miniature golf course, morning breakfast consist of pancakes, cereal, and pastries. Room were kept clean, but don't expect anything new. Hope this helps.

Decent room for the $100 to $150 range.
Who should stay at this place?
- people going to the water park all day and want to be close
- people not spending much time in their room (deep sea fishing all day, site seeing, at the beach)
- people on a budget

The positives:
- The new section had covered parking
- Decent rate on the room
- room was a good size
- small fridge and table and microwave
- Luggage rack in the lobby of the elevators for anyone to use. Very helpful

The negatives:
- zero view (we had a view of a water tower or the other side was looking at a soft ball field) If you want the seawall then pay for it.
- We put the do not disturb sign on our door and then entered our room anyway. Very upset about that.
-The air conditioning in the hall wasn't working well and it was hot in the halls.
- No balcony. I love a place to hang my towels or sit and sip coffee.
- The walls are thin. We were on the 3rd floor and the people on the 4th above us sounded like elephants walking around.
-Several vending machines broken all over the place. Silly to see "out of order" on so many things.

Room Tip: Ask for the new building. You will have a hallway inside the building and not an outer door. You wil...
