Location disappointing

Although the hotel was nice, you had to travel several miles to get to a sandy beach. We had to drive and then find parking. It was not ideal.

Nice oceanfront rooms

This hotel is located right across from the beach. The included breakfast was quite good including prepared cheese omelets, waffles and other more routine breakfast items. The room was clean and beds comfortable. Heating and cooling system worked well. Smaller balcony with Gulf view. One of the elevators was not working and the key card access from the parking garage was "challenging" to use. Overall a decent place to stay and a very good deal for the price.

This was a good night by the water. Relaxing by the water and sitting on the deck at the hotel was like no other.

Family Getaway

Rooms were clean. Breakfast was nice. The hotel is in a nice location. Didn't care for all of the pets in the hotel from other people. Most were not on a leash. They say they they are 100% non smoking but people were still smoking anyway by the pool. We just left. Great for pets, not so great for families.

It's all about the location

I suppose I would be happier if the water hadn't gone out the second morning of my stay. In fairness to the hotel, this was allegedly a problem throughout the city of Galveston. If so, it's not a negative for the hotel. Otherwise, the location is in the high rent district of the city. So it's near the better restaurants, the beach, the amusement park, etc.

Sleeping and Breakfast Covered

This hotel will cover your basic needs but staff wasn't very helpful and map of area not to scale. Breakfast was adequate but displayed in a disorganized manor, so that all those using it were constantly running into one another. The location allows a view of the Gulf, which is nice, and is about midway of the 32 mile island. Very close to the airport, if flying in.

I would stay there again

The only draw back was there was a musty smell and we discovered several hours after we were in the room that there was wet carpet from the air conditioner that was the cause of the smell.

Could be better

We choose this hotel because it was pet friendly. However one should not have to put up with dirty halls and elevators. In addition, it was under renovation. The hotel needs it, but it shouldn't be a surprise when you check in that there will be hammering and sawing early in the morning when you are on vacation. The operator was also quite abrupt when I needed assistance with tepid showers and a blinking message light on the phone. Not very helpful at all. We finally got warm showers after 3 days and never got the blinking light on the phone turned off. I would only come back because it is the only pet-friendly hotel.
