The only bad thing that I have to say about this hotel is bring your ear plugs because it is on the railroad tracks and it is a train whistle crossing that blows the whistle at all hours of the night.

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 1, 2015
This was a small Anniversary outing just to be alone.It was not satisfactory at all, the room wasn't too clean and the beds weren't comfortable at.I did like that it wasn't far from the Sewall. I wouldn't recommend this establishment to anyone.

cruise stay

We spent the night there before leaving for a cruise. The hotel was everything we needed for a good nights sleep and was close to the cruise ship terminal.

Adrian, the front desk manager, was the best part of the stay

Would not recommend Wed, Sep 3, 2014
After reading reviews we really weren't expecting much from the Howard Johnson. It was in a pretty industrial neighborhood kind of in the middle of nowhere if you didn't have a car. We only chose this place for a quick overnight stay prior to boarding our cruise ship. Our party had 3 rooms. The rooms were all pretty run down, with old dirty carpets and thin towels. One room was not even cleaned prior to our arrival, with Cheetos crumbs on the floor and a dirty toilet seat. The air conditioner, which was absolutely necessary to be on because of the weather, had only two settings, loud or louder. No one got a sound sleep that night. The only redemption HoJo had was Adrian. He cheerfully checked us in at 11 p.m. He informed us there was a breakfast the next morning (which we did not expect). We saw him bright an early the next day, in a flurry of activity. He was constantly refilling breakfast items, calling cabs or shuttles for departing guests, handling front desk calls, checking guests out, and it seemed also handling maintenance calls. All this was done with a genuine smile. While our party of 10 was waiting for a shuttle and our arranged ride did not show up, he actually went to the gas station next door to negotiate a ride for us while the taxi driver was filling gas in his car. Adrian went way above and beyond his call of duty during our 12 hour stay in Galveston. We were very impressed with his service and friendly way. He definitely made a difference for our stay.

Not what I expected

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 1, 2014
For what the hotel had to offer it was way overpriced. The air con was loud and didn't really cool the place down, the view was of a muddy area right next to the railroad tracks. On the side there is a nice little convenient store, but truckers use the place to park at night so you can just about hear everything. For the price that was paid, I strongly feel I was over charged. I will not stay here again, on a positive not the location is right off the expressway and easy to get to.

Attractions

When going to the beach do the 'pay by phone' and park on the side of the road. It is very inexpensive (I paid $3 for 3hrs) and a lot less hassle then trying to cross the road with family and gear.
