birthday road trip

The room was clean and comfortable. Having a microwave and fridge in the room was very nice. We went to the grocery store and got something for breakfast so we could eat when we wanted and not have to go out for breakfast. The beach is right across the street which was great for a morning walk.

Honeymoon

Hotel employees were vey nice. A complimentary fruit tray and water was sent to the room because it was our honeymoon. The ocean view we paid extra for wasn't that great, simply because the view was mainly a view of the top of the restauarant air conditioning units with some ocean. Overall staff was great, good dining kids ate free, average hotel.

great place!

This is a great hotel for family as it really caters toward families and children with lots of children activities and since it right across a the street from the beach it was easy for us to go to the beach for a little bit and then head back to the pool. We differently will be back!

Nice rooms

We spent one night prior to a cruise out of Galveston. The room was nice, beds were great. Breakfast was nice. Pool was dirty from the day's use and no one tended to it. On the morning of our departure, the pool was clean. Probably would stay there again if need be.

Nice Rooms, Great Location. but...

Hotel staff was the only negative. There was some confussion at check in [...] It took 3 people to figure out what ever issue they thought they had. Some one else's credit card was attached to my account. I had to get them to change that. They were friendlly, but not real knowledgeable.

Galveston Hotel on the beach

The hotel is nice in front of the beach, a great location. We have got some noise the last night (friday to saturday) coming from the swimming pool, no big deal.
