Good value for the price

The only improvement would have been better instructions on getting more coffee, towels, etc... Other than that, it was clean, quiet and the staff was fantastic.

good value

easy to locate, but a bit of a travel into the town - you need a car. Great Target supermarket nearby which provided all our food and extras needs, just a few minutes walk away. great to be able to have a swim, and to be able to do a clothes washing on the premises.

Great Location and service

We were going on a cruise the next day and came early to do a little shoping, good diner and sharries of one of our favorite places. Found Galveston had change since Rita and Ike had visited, but still found a cleaner place. The hotel was located conviently to Broadway and close to local shopping. The room nad a great HD TV and included a dvd player. (found a good selecton of dvd's at front desk (free) The AC froze us out (a good thing after temps near 100) Great service. Left our car there when we left fot the cruise. Highly recommened, Price was good too

Smoking Room Only

The hotel was new and convenient but I requested a non-smoking room. When I arrived they only had a smoking room available and blamed the erron on Orbitz.

Clean Hotel

Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Staff was polite at check-in. Only complaint was walls were thin so we heard people all night(happens when your near a beach). Price was OK for a weekend, but because hotel is a few blocks from the seawall had to drive to the sights, all that said I've stayed on seawall at worse hotels and paid MUCH more!
