“Excellent property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I've stayed at this property several times over the years and have always enjoyed my stay. The one bedroom is really nice, but the pull out sofa was very uncomfortable. It was better to sleep on it without folding it out. The best option is to get one of the rooms with a daybed in the hallway. It is much more comfortable.

Room Tip: A room facing the seawall has the best view!

Great location on ocean. Room was good size, with nice living room, that includes a very small kitchen. Workable, but European small.

Balcony that includes two chairs and small table between (plastic).

Bedroom includes queen bed with built-in cabinetry.

Bunk beds in hall are very narrow but six foot long. Reasonable for kids.

Front desk was very helpful and friendly. Outstanding service.

On the other side, it is an older property. Not special. Not new. Exterior has some rough spots, but might be due to constant exposure to salt air.

Wal-mart is only 2-3 blocks away, as is Sonic. Numerous restaurants close by.

Walk across street to ocean/beach.

Room Tip: Rooms in front have full ocean view

We stayed for four days at Casa del Mar in July 2013. The staff are attentive and friendly, the maid service is excellent, and the room is superb. You're in the best location imaginable on the seawall, and beach access couldn't be better. Right across from a fishing pier, and a terrific frozen custard/Italian ice place is just on the other side of 61st street. We had a third floor room with a great view of the beach. The little kitchen is just right, and the coffee machine comes with complimentary coffee packets. Bunk beds are fine; my 6' teenage son had no problem fitting into it, and slept well. A very nice room in the perfect location; everything a family needs for a great Galveston vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a third-floor room; the view on the first and second floor is somewhat obscured by the palm...

Our family arrived on Sunday August 4, 2013 and we were promptly checked in . The staff was really friendly and when we arrived at our room we received a phone call to make sure everything was to our liking.! The room was very,very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and we had a great view of the beach. We were very pleased with our stay and we will be going back again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the west side of the hotel, because there is very little noise.

First of all, they say they have bunk beds, but they are oversized crib mattresses (tiny) & paper thin. My kids could not sleep on them. They are in hallway! The housekeeping is awful.. The place has 4 pillows, total.. Pull out couch comes with a sheet & no fitted sheet. Claims to sleep six. The kitchen is OK, but small. The staff is unfriendly. You can do much better in Galveston at the Country Inn & Suites or national brand.

KarenGalveston_Texas, General Manager at Casa Del Mar Beachfront Suites, responded to this review, August 7, 2013
The Management and Staff at Casa del Mar is committed to providing outstanding service, value and hospitality to all of our guests. Unfortunately, we were not made aware of this complaint until this review was posted and have since reached out to the guest to make sure these issues are addressed to his satisfaction. We highly recommend that anytime a guest has an issue that is not immediately resolved by contacting the front desk - no matter where you are staying - please ask to speak to a manager. This will ensure that any issues are addressed and resolved to your satisfaction during your stay rather than afterward. We are looking forward to a positive resolution in this case as well.

Like most families, a luxury resort hotel isn't a reasonable choice for us, and in my opinion, the efficient suite design is a much better value than a standard hotel room. It was clean, has a convenient location, nice grounds and pools. I don't mind a little limited space in exchange for a kitchenette, ocean view balcony, and private master bedroom with an oh-so-comfy bed! The staff is great! From booking and check-in, all during our stay, and through the quick check-out, everyone was friendly and accommodated all our requests and needs. Our family loves Casa Del Mar, and won't stay anywhere else when we visit Galveston! (Thank you, Kendall! ;))

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the front have the best ocean views, rooms facing 61st might be a little noisier.

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...
