We were absolutely thrilled with this hotel. The staff was very friendly. Every room has an unobstructed beach view balcony. I just can't say enough good things about our experience. We stayed in 513 which is the 3rd from the rear of the hotel on the 5th floor. We could see and hear the ocean on our private balcony. When they say "partial ocean view", it's a bit of a fib, because all you see is the ocean. No joke. The balconoies are also constructed so that you don't see or hear any of your neighbors.
Kroger is walking distance, as are McDonald's, Popeye's, and a convenience store. We never heard any of our neighbors the entire time. Parking was ample and convenient. The a/c worked very well, and the room had its own fridge which worked well also. We had the king bed with the pull out sofa bed, and our family of 4 was very comfortable. We didn't feel cramped at all. The entire hotel was freshly painted and not in need of updating. We stayed at the Best Western next door 2 years previously, and liked the Quality Inn much better.
If you like Galveston, you'll absolutely love this hotel. We will definitely stay here again.
It's difficult for me to think of any negatives, but just to "keep it real" so this doesn't sound like a staff member writing this:
The flat screen HD tv's are using low def cable, so the picture is not very good. But to be honest, who goes to Galveston to watch tv in a hotel, right?
There are a lot of seagulls, as I'm sure there are at every hotel.
There was only one high chair in the breakfast area. We have a toddler and an infant. The 2nd morning that we were there, the high chair was already taken. No biggie, because our daughter just sat in my lap.
We did our homework with hotels before we took this trip. We read the reviews, and we found that this hotel had the most positive reviews and the least "deal breaker" negative reviews. We stayed here in March 2012 the week after spring break, and our rate was only $59/nt.
