“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

It all depends on what you pay, we stayed in January 2013 & paid just $37 for night plus taxes, in our trip around the states this was by the cheapest accommodation we came across. We slept well, ate well the next day, the room was clean enough & hey for the $$ paid, a bargain.

We stayed here pre cruise in Sep 2013, it was hundreds less than what we were going to spend at the Harbor House. For the price you pay you get your moneys worth. It was close to the ocean, clean, and the staff was friendly. We will stay here again when we leave for our next cruise.

This place was not a seedy hotel but it wasn't anything special either. I would not go here again. Positives were, waffle house right next door and beach within walking distance, about a block and a half. The young ladies that were there when we checked in were really nice and helpful, trying to get our three rooms together. But the people we encountered afterward throughout the 2 days we stayed were not the friendliest.

The prices were supposed to be a bargain at 70 per night friday and 130 per night weekend. So it averaged about 100.00 per night. Which really was no bargain considering the location, service, and condition of hotel.

For 100 dollars a night, the location was awesome. As for cleanliness they could spend a little more effort on this part. Our room had mold on the bathroom ceiling, there was mold on the lampshades beside the bed and when we walked in a musty smell smacked us in the face not to mention the rips in the comforters on the bed and they were so kind as to give us dirty towels. I would not recommend this hotel unless you absolutely have to.

After researching several properties for our recent family trip to Galveston, I booked the Beachcomber Inn. Several factors led me to this decision. First of all, the property has an excellent location: a block away from a major grocery store and two blocks away from the beach. Second, they advertised refrigerators, microwaves and coffee makers in every room. When I made our reservation, I requested a handicap room on the first floor. Upon our arrival to the property, we were greeted and told that our room was ready. The first thing that we noticed was that the AC was on full-blast and the room felt cold. This is a good thing, because it was nearly 100 degrees outside and not having a good AC in the room would have been uncomfortable. In addition, the room was clean and ready for our stay. Actually, I was impressed with the cleanliness of the refrigerator and microwave. As you can tell from my other Galveston post, we only used the room to sleep and shower. We stayed two nights, and even left the property before the seven o’clock breakfast on the first morning. (We were on the beach by 6:30.) However, we ate breakfast before checkout on our last day. It was appropriate. There were three or four different offerings for cold cereal, three selections of juice, instant oatmeal and a selection of breads with cream cheese and jelly packets. The breakfast area was well-maintained. And finally, there was a pool. It was small, but well-kept. I went for a swim on in the afternoon of our second day. The pool is big enough to cool off or for small children to play around for a little while. In general, I recommend this property. If you do decide to stay there, it is a good idea to make reservations, because they seemed to be at capacity every night we were there.

Room Tip: We stayed in the first floor handicap double room: room number 106.
