“Great views”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Resort having booked Cruise for two days prior and enjoyed the condo and the view from our fifth floor east wing balcony.
The Resort sets on the beach with access, beautiful pool and hot tub and is well kept with nice decor throughout.
Look forward to more visits prior to cruising.

Husband and I took our annual fall get away before the winter snow arrived up North! Decided we wanted to go some where we hadn't been but wanted to stick with warm weather travel! First trip to Texas!! We picked Galveston Beach area keeping with warm winds and sandy beaches, other than the beaches in Florida! Very pleasant surprise to find a beautiful hotel Holiday Inn Club just outside the Sea wall strip. A short easy drive from Houston Hobby Airport about 40 minutes. Each room is a mini suite with private bedroom off the sitting area/Kitchen, and available washer and dryer (we shared with room next door, out in hall way that both rooms use to access suites, so pack light no need to carry extra clothing) Kitchens have everything you need to fix full meals if you don't want to eat out every day. Suite was very clean, comfortable, very relaxing, much better then the standard hotel room! Super Walmart and other stores just a short drive away, also many restaurants to chose from along Sea Wall Blvd. Hotel sits right on the beach, so no crossing busy road to use the beach or have to pay for parking along the sea wall. There is no daily cleaning service, or towel pick up, guessing because you have the washer and dryer handy. They do supple towels at the pool area, so no need to use the ones from your room for the beach and pool. Enjoyed our nightly walks along the beach, as we watch the sun set in the west! Hotel staff is very helpful and accommodating, want to know where to eat, shop, sites to see they will direct you on all the best places. Should you have a problem they are right there to correct it. First night we were there TV wasn't working called the front desk and within 15 minutes a gentleman arrived assessed the problem, got what he need and had it fixed in under a half hour! Only other issue we had was the hair dryer in the bathroom stopped working on the third day we were there again called the front desk and in less then 10 minutes gentleman arrive with a brand new hair dryer installed and apologized for the inconvenience it caused us! Hotel is very well maintained and all common area's are inviting and comfortable. Can't say enough nice things about the staff from the front desk, right to the service men who we encountered during our stay. Texas is a great state to visit!! Everyone we had the pleasure of meeting on our trip, store clerks, wait staff at local restaurants, tour guides and just people along the street are so friendly! They will strike up a conversation, wish you well, or just say hello as you venture out in their great state! We are planning a family trip down there this spring with the whole family!! Can't wait to let our children and grandchildren see a different way of life than what they are used to up here in the North! People actually look at you and will greet you it was so refreshing!

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor did have some noise from the room above, scraping chairs etc. nothing overl...

I rented a king suite for my family Christmas week. Spacious rooms, high ceilings, very well appointed. Full kitchen was very useful and Jacuzzi tub in the extra large bath was lovely. Heated pool and very hot tub were appreciated in the chilly winter weather. Staff was very friendly and attentive. An excellent condo for the price. It is a bit down the road from Seawall, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet. I will definitely be back.

What a surprise!!!! Super service by blonde lady at front desk. I knew I was going to like this place when it had my favorite beer in stock!!! It is right on the beach and has a beautiful infinity pool and hot tub spa. The room is very spacious and comfortable. Full kitchen with everything you would need in the kitchen. Just a great place!!!! 'Nuff said!!!

Room Tip: The one bedrooms are very small..... too small for other than 2 people. Get the deluxe one bedroom...

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this resort. Our unit, E52A, was a 1 bedroom with full kitchen, eating area, and living room, as well as master bedroom and very large bathroom with full shower and a jet tub. Unit was very clean, well appointed, well supplied in the kitchen with all the necessities, nice views of the ocean. Staff at front desk was wonderful - suggested eating places and things to do, had a supply of recent DVDs you could borrow for free, daily newspaper, etc. Only problem we had is very poor hot water in shower - the rest of the unit - sinks, jet tub,, all had plenty of hot water. We had mtce check on it, I know they were in room while we were gone, but it never got better, and they never reported back to us if there was a fix or not. That's my only complaint. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Galveston.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit that faces the pool and is on a higher floor, so you have a nicer view.

We were there for two nights during the DICKENS ON STRAND event, although that was not why we were there. The room was clean, attractive and had a splendid view of the ocean. My only concern was that the bedroom did not have a window, and as a claustrophobic, I found that a little anxiety provoking; I wound up sleeping in the living room on the convertible sofa, and expected a horrible nights sleep. To my pleasant surprise, the sofa bed was extremely comfortable (no pressing of the springs into the flesh), and I enjoyed a great nights sleep.
After my return home, I discovered I had left something in the room. Two days later, I called the hotel and spoke with Victoria, who politely and expeditiously obtained info from housekeeping that the item had been found, and arranged to return it to me. Very professional, very courteous.
I will definitely return to this place and recommend it highly to anyone wanting an 'off the beaten path' experience.

Room Tip: choose an East room (35B offers excellent ocean view)!

Hello Dennis M., Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. Our one bedroom queen rooms do not have a window in the bedroom but if that is something you need in your room, all of our one bedroom king rooms do have the window in the bedrooms. I am glad the sofa in the living room was comfortable and you were able to enjoy your stay. We do mail items back if they are found in the rooms after you depart and I am happy that Victoria was able to help you through this process. Hope to see you in the near future.
