“Great Mid Priced Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We stayed here for 3 days last week and enjoyed everything about the stay. This is a new hotel right on Seawall Blvd. Upon check in we knew this would be good. The staff is excellent and so frendly and helpful. We had a room facing the gulf with a balcony ...beautiful view. The pool area is like that at a small resort - heated. There is plenty of parking, some under the hotel. The only negative is that it's on the far end of the blvd but that's also a plus as you are removed from some of the busyness.

Room Tip: Do what you can to get a room with balcony facing the gulf

We traveled here for a school football game in a nearby city, loved the hotel our room # 416 had an amazing view, the only negative was the beach across the street wasn't really a beach it was man made stones and you had to cross over the main drag to even get to the beach but the hotel was great wonderful hospitality and there was even a starbucks in the lobby:))

Hotel was very clean. The bedding sheets and towels smelled so fresh and clean. The best hotel in Galveston for your money. Very clean room and spacious. It is just minutes away from the touristy areas but far enough to relax and calm your mind.

The family and I stayed here a couple of nights during August. We liked the hotel a lot. Its new, clean, and having a larger combined sister property pool is good. There is a nice lobby bistro/bar and a pool bar. The bistro evening service was outstanding.


The Galveston ocean was nasty while we visited. It was one of the times when seaweed is there and the city does not rake the beaches. My daughters refused to go near the beach.

Good thing we had a good resort pool. We did Moody Gardens, which we always like (but is very expensive). I also visited the Blues Brothers Brewpub in downtown Galveston that turned out to not actually make beer because they were under new management and doing some construction.

We became a little bored with Galveston and left a day early. Two nights was plenty.

I definitely recommend this Courtyard.

The property and the room were very nice and all function was well thought-after. The bed was very comfortable. The food at the food bar in the lobby was healthy and flavorful. I liked the location being on the quieter side of the island. The pool was very nice as was the exercise room. Overall, a very good stay!

I usually check in at the Marriott properties and this one is one of the best! Very clean rooms and spacious as well as the bathrooms.Towels and linens are as white as snow and are freshly cleaned and pressed. I would highly recommend this property.

Overall experience at this Marriott location is excellent. Everything was what you could expect from a well-maintained Marriott hotel. Greeted by very friendly hotel staff, room overlooking the sea is also a big plus!
