Rally weekend

I stayed here for the Lone Star Rally weekend. The location is convenient walking distance to the beach. Also not to busy in the middle of all the traffic I truly enjoyed my stay.

Great Value

The place is newly renovated inside (from the looks of it). The room was comfortable, and it was surprisingly nice inside. The beach is just a few minutes walk down the street. For the price, you won't do better.

Overpriced!

Extremely disappointed with accommodations for the price paid. Facility is in dire need of repair and renovation. The door to room had a 1/2" gap and didn't close all the way, but it did lock and stay closed. I did not leave valuables in the room for fear the door could be kicked in. While room appeared clean, there was wrapped candy under edge of bed and debris under couch. TV was old, mattress sagged in middle, linens were worn and stained, and entire room had shoddy paint job. Did I say disappointed?

too much for such low grade rooms

I honestly wouldn't stay here again, the door was broken like someone had tried breaking in. Lamp in the room was broken the blankets and bed were uncomfortable, the carpet was dirty. There was loud music and kids playing for hours that the hotel staff did nothing about . Thier value for this hotel is too much paid 100 a night for a 40 room. It was a good location ill give it that but we will NEVER stay here again. I thought that maybe reading the reviews there was some good omes but no I wouldn't stay there. I didn't feel safe and I have a 10month old couldn't sleep too noisy

Good Spot

Good value for my needs. Wasn't there on vacation, so view wasn't a necessity. But was only 5 minute walk to the ocean. Not bad at all. Would stay there again.

Not bad

If you paid for a cheap place, expect what you'll get. Don't expect luxurious service, but it's really worth what you pay for. The staff are extremely nice and helpful. The one bad thing was that the hair dryer was kind of sticky.

Galveston Trip

The room was a nice size, but definitely the place is much more run down than the online pictures reflect. The comforter had a hole from a cigarette burn. One of the pillows had a rank smell. Headboard had a hole in it. AC worked but was so old the displays on the dial had worn to the point you couldn't read it. Proximity to the Beach was not bad. Room was a very nice size for the price. Fridge in room and free breakfast were nice perks. Nice to have free wifi, but the wifi was not fast enough to play streaming video. Staff was nice.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Definitely take a tour of Bishop's Palace. It is an amazing home and worth the visit. Moody Garden's Aquarium, Rainforest, and 3D Movie Theater attractions are all great, but skip the Moody Garden's boat ride, as it takes an hour and is pretty uneventful.
