“Nice hotel”
Reviewed May 2, 2011

My honey and I went for a quick getaway for two nights. Found the hotel online, and the price beat most others on the Seawall, which made me skeptical. But I checked the reviews here, and most were good so we went with it. Front desk staff were very friendly, and check in was easy. This Comfort Suites is like most others in the chain. It was very clean--no bugs, stray hairs or mold or other nastiness in the bathroom, and the floors in our room were clean. The bed (king) was very comfortable, and the air worked well (it was very muggy so the a/c was nice). We had a king room facing the gulf on the 3rd floor. Mini-frige, microwave, and a safe. Haven't seen safes in Comfort Suitesw before, so that was a nice touch. We woke early in the mornings and sat out watching the sunrise. I hope they don't build anything in front of the hotel and ruin the view! Like another reviewer said, the hotel is at the far west end of the Seawall, so there's not much as far as restaurants/bars/etc. within walking distance. There is a movie theater next to the hotel and a little burger/ice cream place a block up on the seawall. We always have our car so we just hop in and go. I can't comment on the breakfast--with so many wonderful restaurants on the island, that's what we do for meals. Housekeeping shorted us a few towels one day, but the front desk quickly replaced them. Just a general hint for all travelers--always pack a flashlight and batteries. While we were there the electricity went out and it was pitch black! No emergency lighting in the rooms but emergency lighting in the halls and stairs worked fine. Loss of power wasn't the hotel's fault, just one of those things. Didn't use the pool or hot tube or exercise room, but I heard and saw lots of people using them so they must have been good. Overall, this is a very good Comfort Suites--we will definitely be back. Glad we chose it.

I just returned from a quick trip to Galveston.

After researching accomodations, I decided to stay at Comfort Suites. (Previous stays were at the Hotel Galvez.).

Comfort Suites (TX885) was *IDEAL*. The location is the 89th Street area - a short one block walk to Seawall Blvd. There is a movie theater and mini golf within a 3 minute walk. If you want access to the beach, you would need to travel either east or west for a sandy beach. I really liked the fact that the location is away from all the hustle and bustle / congestion of the east -middle section of Seawall.

The hotel is relatively new and very clean. The rooms were well cleaned and had fresh linens. Bathroom was very clean - no mildew or disgusting remnants. Ample bath/face towels. Facial & body soap; shampoo and lotion provided.

I had a king size bed which was comfortable. The kids used the pull out couch with a very thin mattress which was NOT comfortable. Boys are resilient so it wasn't an issue.
Mini fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board in the room. Television with local channels and some cable/specialty channels. (FOX News!!!)

Air conditioning worked great and kept the room cool. We had a room on the third floor overlooking the airport. It was very quiet but this is the off season - so may be noisy during summer.

Pool area was well maintained and the jacuzzi was nice. Open until 10 pm.

Continental breakfast served from 6 - 9:30 am. Served in a nice spacious, room with abundant natural light. Usual fare. Make your own waffles. Bagels, wheat bread, pastries, cold cereal, juices & coffee. In addition, they had scrambled eggs and sausage. Scrambled eggs were overcooked/dry.

I was surprised to receive a complimentary copy of the Wall Street Journal when I opened my door!

I was extremely pleased with this property. We would stay here again without any second thought.

This is the second visit to this hotel for us. The staff is very efficient and friendly. We reserved the shuttle to transport us to the pier for a cruise. The weather was not very cooperative. There were quite a few people waiting for their turn on the shuttle to take them to the pier. The manager himself drove us in his private suv to the pier so we wouldn't have to wait so long. He is such a nice, helpful person and he unloaded our excessive luggage for us at the pier. When we returned from our cruise, Mr. Chauhan picked us up and returned us to the hotel where our car was parked. He again unloaded our luggage in the pouring down rain. I can't say enough about this hotel. We will definitely stay here again in the future. The beds are so comfortable and we enjoyed a good nights rest before our cruise.

The hotel is overall an average hotel. The owner said it was 3 years old (as of 2010). It looks pretty new. It costed 54 dollars for one night so I was pretty suspicious of the quality but it turned out to be a great stay. The front desk check in speed was fairly fast. Our room (319) was on the 3rd floor, a distance from the one and only (slow) elevator. The room itself was fantastic. It faced the airport (more on that later) and was clean but a little bare in decor but that didn't affect us at all. There was a tv and some other electronics. The WIFI worked for a little while before it became pretty sluggish.

The sleeping quality on the bed was great. BEWARE OF THE SOFA BED!!! The sofa bed's mattress was EXTREMELY thin and you could feel the wires digging into your back. Also, as another review mentioned, you have to go down to the front desk and get your own sofa bed linens. Other than that, the sleep quality was ok. As with the other 99.9% of family friendly hotels, the walls are paper thin.

The location was excellent. It is right next to Moody Gardens (I recommend going there). In fact, you could see the outline of the pyramids in the distance from room 319. It is also located next to Galveston Airport (you can also see the airport from your room). I imagine that the airport would be quite loud but it was the winter and there weren't a lot of flights. Probably in the summer, it would get quite loud.

The breakfast had a wide variety of hot food like a make-your-own-waffle machine, a toaster, sausages, and (real?) eggs. It also had cereal, donuts bread, bagels, coffee, milk, butter, etc. An inference that I made about the hotel was that there were very few people staying in it. Why? During breakfast only about 3-5 families came to the breakfast room (which had a TV). Maybe that's the reason for the low prices.

There were other amenities like a business center (with a BW printer), outdoor pool, laundry facilities, and (the world's smallest) gym. There is a bowl of chocolates on the front desk...

Overall, our stay at the hotel was pretty nice.
