2/10 Poor

Dirty in galveston
This hotel was the dirtiest place iv been to. The desk was so dirty you can write your name in the dust..The air vest was a science project, mold was growing.The walls had black scuffs marks all over..The view of the ocean would have been great if you could see through the dirty window. The bathroom sink would not drain, no soap. You could nt adjust the air temp. It was so cold, we had to check out after an hour being there..

Great older hotel!
The rooms were fairly large, simple, the private balcony was my absolute favorite, we sat there and watched the ocean a lot. It’s close to everything you could want to get to. Parking was easy, the bathrooms were older, and the tubs were small but perfect for the little ones to have a bath. Water pressure was excellent, the pool was down while we were there, but who cares when you’re at the beach. They had construction going on when we went, but didn’t start until later in the mornings, so the rooms will have a completely different look when they’re done. (So my experience will be completely different than someone staying later). Overall the hotel was great, exactly what we needed, just a room to lay our heads at night.

Very disappointed in the whole experience. The front desk people were not friendly. The elevator was not working and we were on the 4th floor. The rooms were dark and dinghy…not very clean and we saw a roach. None of us slept well that evening. We will not be returning.

I have been going to this hotel for a number of years. It is somewhat outdated. No microwaves or coffee pot in the rooms but have it in the lobby. The rooms are clean, all rooms have a balcony that face the beach, a nice clean pool and is right across from the beach with a crossover light on the corner. They are currently remodeling and half the rooms are being gutted out on one end (but no prob with noise) and the elevator was out. We were on 3rd floor so was an effort but I will be going back again. The price is reasonable and great location on the Seawall.

8/10 Very Good

A Weekend at the Beach
It was conveniently located near the beach and restaurants. Staff was friendly. The lobby bathroom was out of order as was the elevator. This was inconvenient especially with children needing the restroom while on the beach or using the pool. Walking up 3 floors was not ideal. The key card did not work properly and had to be reprogramed more than once. The rooms are cramped but since we did not stay in the room much, it wasn't that bad. The balcony door was difficult to open and close. There was construction work being done. This would be a welcome remodel.

Just okay
Pool and pool area was good. Great view of the Gulf from the room. Room was clean. Check in and out was smooth. Ample parking. TV did not work. Door to balcony needs repair. Some lighting did not work. Elevator out of service. Smell of urine in parking lot. Messy renovations occurring.

Great staff but updates needed
All staff were wonderful and accommodating. Odd that there is no telephone in the room nor soap for hand washing. Very basic amenities. Tables by pool were a bit beat up as was hotel exterior.
