“Can't beat it for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I can't recommend this place enough for families! I did a ton of research and for the price, you can't find another place that has all that this offers- a kitchen, seperate bedroom with queen bed, bunkbeds for the kids, a pullout couch, a balcony with a view, 2 pools (one heated), and literally across from the beach (with a crosswalk which is hard to find in this area!). Yes, the hotel and rooms are a bit dated (although ours had new carpet and furniture) and the suite isn't huge, but it really clean, and everyone has their own space.

Room Tip: Request one of the rooms on the "inside" of the resort--that way your view doesn't inc...

This was a perfect place for my family to stay. The view is fabulous. The landscaping around the pools was beautiful. The room was comfotable, a little outdated in appearance but clean. My husband, 4 year old triplet girls and I hope to stay here again soon.

Walking distance to just about everything you would need. Great staff. The pools were nice. Parking was kind of an issue but bearable. The laundry room does not have a change machine so make sure you have plenty of quarters for laundry.

Came with friends for a quick weekend and has 4 adults 2 kids. So it was a little small in the one bedroom suite. But again doable. BRING extra towels for bathroom, which we did so worked out. Also kitchen is functional but look at picture it's really small. Our room has nice view of water, which it looks like every room does which is another plus. Kind of far from the pleasure pier which is where all the action was about 3 miles away but as we didn't really care for that we were good. It's at an intersection so crossing to the beach was easy. FYI, beach is in Galveston so no white sand and lots of seaweed. Pool was nice and clean, got a little crowded at night but its summer. Saw security walking around all the time also plus. FYI, need 25 cents for ice machine which is odd but I guess they don't want you filling your cooler and washing machine is pay also. Overall good for price and location.

When observing pictures of the floor plan on their website, note the size of the kitchen. It looks small and it is. Not a problem, just a little shock when we got here. Be sure you are really friendly with whoever you bring cause there is no place to hide! All furnishing new. Unfinished wood in the halls actually give some character to the place. All in all, we had a really nice time.

I've stayed at this hotel a lot since the early 90's and it gets a lil better every time. Staff is nice and helpful, rooms are really clean, and the view is really good if you get a room on the very front (all rooms have a ocean view though). Only bad thing about this place is it kinda needs a lil paint on the outside around the balconies. And maybe switch from keys to key cards on the doors. If you have a small family this place is ideal. Bunk beds in the hallway and a queen bed in the seperate room. Even a pull out queen size in the couch. Kitchen has everything you need except the food. Will def be staying here for a while to come while on vacation in Galveston.

You can't beat this place for location if you love to walk the beach. It a rental timeshare type of resort, free parking, I was not charged a resort fee, but you should always check,

Front desk service was nice but there system is old. That's the main drawback. The whole place needs a retrofit. It is not a chain so they do not have a mandatory 7 year make over.

Nice layout, every room has a balcony, but don't hang anything white over the railing if you don't want rust stains on them.

Room Tip: Buy shrimp from the bait shop / fresh fish shop. It is amazingly fresh and cheap. Little olive oil g...
