We stayed here for 1 night as part of our Texas tour. We arrived early but was pleased to hear the room was ready. Be aware there are quite a lot of steps to this property so not good for infirm or elderly. The room was ok but very small and cramped. The bathroom is tiny and the washbasin is in the main room. Also there is nowhere to hang any clothes so I wouldn't want to stay for long. The balcony was very nice although the seating was a small wooden bench but a nice view of the ocean. We didn't go far as we were in need to a bit of relaxation so sat near the restaurant/bar and had a few drinks. The service was fine. I enjoyed the peace and quiet and watching the pelicans fishing in the gulf. We ate there a little later, the food was ok but nothing to write home about, very limited menu, we had the burgers. We then had the invasion of mosquitos so had to retire to our room. We slept well as it is very quiet. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and again it was just ok, maybe should have waited til we got the Galveston. For someone from the UK this was an experience but wouldn't rush back.
