nice hotel, but bad location

Hotel was average and clean, but the location was not what was expected. The beach in front is huge rocks and not accessible. It would be better to stay at the La Quinta on the east beach.

Weekend in Galveston

We picked this LaQuinta over the east beach location because of the price difference, but we did have to drive everywhere--not that it's very far (it is an island), but I would have liked to been able to walk across to the beach. Across from this hotel there is no sand beach, its all rock, so the kids cannot play. But it is the closest ocean-view hotel to the moody gardens and waterpark-which is great, by the way. The king bed was super comfortable with down comforter and pillows. The bathroom had newer granite countertops and bath splash. The room was clean and cool when we got there. The maid service was wonderful, but the front desk doesnt know how to put people on hold bc they hung up on us twice. Every floor has a wash room with soap dispenser and vending machines and ice machines. There is also covered parking-nice to keep off the birds. Breakfast was wonderful. Lots of selection; several kids cereals, texas shaped waffles (kiddo loved), yogurt, juices--more than we have ever gotten from a "free" breakfast. All and all--would stay here again.

Not bad, but not great either...

If I completed this survey after our first day, it would be MUCH worse! Check in was easy, but contradictory to what both the La Quinta and [...] web sites said, NOT every room has a balcony. That was one of the key things that made us choose this hotel. Only a handful of rooms don't have balconies, and we were lucky enough to get one! After spending some time on the phone with [...] and talking with the ladies at the front desk (who initially weren't interested in helping us out), we were finally moved into a room with a balcony.The rest of our stay was fairly uneventful. The location is pretty good. There's very few things within walking distance, but it only took us 5 minutes to drive to just about anything else we wanted to do. "Beach Access" is kind of a joke; nearly everything along Seawall Blvd. is non-beach (not La Quinta's fault). But a quick 3 minute drive down the road led to some pretty nice beachfront! All in all, not bad but not great either.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're looking for a little quieter beach action, don't go east on Seawall to the main beach areas. Go west and you'll see some "Public Beach Access" points, one of which is in the middle of a fairly new neighborhood development. That's where we went every time we went to the beach and it was great! Clean, and mostly families out there.

Bad place, not recommended

Very bad experience. The first room they give to us has no A/C, plus the carpet was soaking wet and the place smell. Then they replace our room with the bathroom exhaust doesn't work. The tile and wall has been rotted and mold. The balcony door got stuck and couldn't open. Some of the light in the room could not turn on. This was suppose a 3 star place. But it look like 1 star.

Mixed feelings!

Not worthy of the price but was clean enough. Seemed to still have damage from hurricane Ike but nothing too major, the floors were warped, kind of weird. The elevators were questionable, take the stairs. The staff was nice and helpful though. The fact that check in time was at 4 pm and check out was 11 am was crazy unacceptable for the amount I paid! I paid extra for a view of the parking lot, that was annoying. Enjoyed my trip regardless but it had nothing to do with the hotel. Apparently what qualifies as a suite is subjective. This in my opinion was not a suite! Probably won't be back to this location in the future.
