Relaxing Getaway and Perfect Location

Watched the sunrise from my balcony while listening to the ocean waves and seagulls. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The only problem I had was the water in the bathroom sink had a bad smell. Luckily I had some bottle water. The shower was fine however. The bed was high up, but very comfy. The room and the rest of the hotel was extremely clean. Also had a safe area to park. I would stay again!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Plenty of beaches to choose from including right across the street. Drive on beaches just a short distance. Plenty of shopping and dining options. Close to available tours. Check out Harbor Cruise, the Elissa tall ship, Moody Gardens, the Strand, historical bldgs, and take a ferry ride over to Bolivar. Ask for maps at the Visitor Ctr on Broadway, including the carved oak trees which had been damaged by the salt water from Hurricane Ike. Awesome sculptures!

Family Spring Vacation

The rooms were very nice and clean. The pool was very nice. All rooms have balconies and a wonderful view of the ocean. The only thing that could be better is the game room. It is in a separate building from the hotel and a little run down.

Nice place on the beach

First time visiting Galveston and wanted something with a nice view. All the SunSpree rooms face the water (just across the street) and have a balcony. Didn't use the pool this visit but looked very nice and had a swim up bar. Good location close to some restaurants (the Saltgrass is a block away) and the hotel has a gated parking lot.

Great Place To Stay

This hotel was great! We really loved the tropical feel. The pool was pretty and had a swim up bar. Unfortunately the weather was not swimming weather. The bar was also very tropical. We could sit and have a few drinks and have a beautiful view of the ocean. We will stay here again.

If you haven't been to Galveston be sure to go to the historic district downtown and check out the shops and the restaurants right on the bay.

Great time in Galveston

We had a very enjoyable stay at Holiday Sunspree Galveston.We went to Schlitterbaun,Rainforest Cafe', and just played on the beach and at the pool.(Great pool).I would also like to say "hats-off" to the people of Galveston on the great recovery from the resent hurricane.I did not expect everything to be so clean and orderly. Great job!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you stay on Seawall Blvd. Walk across the street(be careful-traffic can be bad at times)You can spend hours on the beach.Swimming or just relaxing in the sun.Me and my son spent all evening collecting sea shells for necklaces that we made(make sure you get the shells with the hole at the top.)Time well spent and won't cost you a dime.My son is still wearing his!
