Needs that Special Something.....

The room was nice, however, our room overlooked the electrical/control room/pool functionality equipment. While we could see the gulf, it wasn't a pretty site. Also, there was only sweet and low in the coffee bar in the room. After 7am or so, coffee was put out near the lobby, however, IT REALLY WASN'T COFFEE; BUT COFFEE FLAVORED WATER IF YOU ASK ME. I had to purchase a real cup of coffee from Starbucks. It wasn't close to the hotel at all. We were in Galveston before taking a cruise. I will not stay there again. I'll try the San Luis next time; or go back to Hilton

Great stay!!!

Our stay was perfect. When we arrived they were able to get us an early check in! Our room was clean and spacious. Everyone was friendly. We love the drinks at the pool. We will be back!!! If you want a great stay at a great price...choose Holiday Inn in Galveston.

Was Okay

Our third-floor view of the ocean was over the roof, air conditioners, etc, of the one story lobby in front of us. The room was clean and nice enough but the locks were sticky and hard to manipulate, the TV remote had to be replaced, the soft drink machine was empty and there was minimal water pressure. Nothing major - just minor annoyances.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

We found a wonderful cafe/bakery off the beaten path. Sunflower Cafe and Bakery. Easily affordable and the food was top notch. The bakery was delightful.
