Chilly

The staff was very nice. The room seemed to be re-configured and heating was not enough for room size. (Had to wonder about air-conditioning in summer). Also a leak in mini fridge put puddle on floor. We brought our pets and they were welcomed, however the place to walk them was a long walk from room and very small.

Unfortunate getaway weekend

Oh my word!!!, the double beds sanitized. Bed sheets are molded & stained. Carpet floor is damp & smelly. There is no ice bucket nor coffee jar for coffee. This hotel looks nothing like in the picture, it's ghetto & very filthy. It's not worth the money at all. My family hated it and they never want to go there again.

Walking distance to the beach!

Had a wonderful experience. Staff is amazing! Arrived to Galveston a couple hours before the designated check-in time and the staff was able to accommodate me. The room was clean and chic! Most importantly they are pet friendly!!! :)

Good value but a few issues

This hotel was about average as far as hotels go. PROS: 1. My room faced the ocean. 2. Free breakfast with waffles, juice, fruits, cereals, and breads. 3. Within walking distance to the beach. 4. Cable. 5. Staff was very nice. CONS: 1. Parking is TERRIBLE. I was blocked into my parking space by another resident TWICE during my two night stay. 2. The shower needed some bleach (pink stuff!). 3. Room smelled of smoke. Good value compared to some of the other hotels.

Nice, value hotel along the beach strip

The hotel is a typical La Quinta. If not for the location, I would rate it much lower. The beds are tiny - they are doubles and you practically have to sleep on your side as adults or huddle together on the bed. The rooms are decent - they are older and is a little dingy. Its location is fabulous which is the reason we booked it and at the price for $125 after taxes, it's one of the better values to give you direct access to the beach. Be warned that if you drive, they only allocate one car per room. The elevator is slow and small, typical of an older room. It's next to a Denny's which isn't anything to write home about but in a pinch and you're hungry enough to stomach it. They have a continental breakfast that is included with the room and comes with cold stuff as well as hard boiled eggs and a waffle maker. It's enough to fill up on but again, nothing that's remarkable. We were there before our cruise and there is no shuttle so you have to call for a cab which while we were there, about 30 other people were also waiting for cabs so make sure you call early and get your name on their list otherwise you could we waiting for several hours. The total cost of our ride to the cruise ship from hotel was under $10; not bad considering! It's about a 20 minute walk to the Pleasure Pier that has the carnival stuff that you can see from the hotel.
