“Make sure you get what you reaerve”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

We had reserved a deluxe king with balcony room and after initially being told our room wasn't ready and to come back later, we get to our room only to find no balcony. Staff doesn't understand the concept of being friendly and attentive to those directly in front of you instead of making someone on the phone a priority. The bed is comfortable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The hotel was decent, but not great. The rooms were clean enough, but certainly not spotless. The entire hotel smelled, but I attribute that to the location right on the beach, and the incessantly muggy atmosphere in Galveston.

The service was mostly friendly, but wouldn't allow us to check in one minute early (even for a fee). That was particularly irritating after a long drive.

There was free breakfast with a waffle bar, but the seating area is very small. It was hard to find a place to sit during peak breakfast hours. I would stay here again if I got a good deal, but it seems the rates have gone up.

This hotel is a little worse for wear but it is in a high use area right across from the sea. The breakfast isn't what I'm used to at a La Quinta but it is right next to a Denny's.

The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the wifi working. The toilet backed up but maintenance came and fixed it right away. The elevator had a lumpy floor.

The location is excellent and the price decent for off season. I wouldn't pay the high price asked for this room during the busy season. But, I wouldn't pay that kind of price for any hotel room unless I really had no other options.

I'd stay here again in the off season.

Read some reviews before we traveled and felt the hotel would be "OK" for 1 night. The location was better than expected - cross the street and go down about 15 steps and you are walking on sand and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. All of the hotel staff was attentive and friendly. We were quite close to restaurants and bars. Had our dog with us and there were several other dogs at the hotel. It was quiet after 11 PM on a Saturday night and could not hear any traffic from the roadway. We slept in until 8 AM w/o any problem. The breakfast room is quite small so we took our breakfast back to the room. Will stay here again on our next visit to Galveston. Good value for the price.

The location is right on the beach separated only by a road. Directly in front of the hotel entrance is a crosswalk. All staff very friendly. I was cold that evening and thinking they wouldn't deliver an extra blanket and being capable myself I walked over to get one. The grounds are well kept and so peaceful. Went to the front desk and she said she would have one sent over right away and she wasn't kidding. The gentleman was right outside my door ready with a nice warm freshly laundered blanket. Wow! Some reviewers said this place was dirty. This is a beach town and nobody is perfect. We all miss places when cleaning. Our room looked wonderful, clean and smelled good. No sand or dirt. I highly recommend this place for its value and service and most of all location.

Hotel staff is very friendly. The pool is clean and nice. Hotel staff is more than willing to assist the guest. The locals in Galveston are all so friendly. We will be back. Location is good, food excellent.
