Galveston Fun & Steve Martin

Checked in after a day at beach, we were hot and sandy, the room was so cool and clean. That was wonderful. In the evening we went to The Grand Opera House and saw Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers. Fabulous show. Then we ate at the Rainforest Cafe. Outstanding weekend.

Excellent Hotel just yards from Seawall

An excellent hotel just yards from the Galveston Seawall. Very nice facility, good service, and nice and quiet. Walk to the beach; just minutes to the Strand and tons of great restaurants. We'll be back!

The owner yelled at us!

The owner screamed at my girlfriend in her room and yelled at me. She told us to "Get out of here!" I never have been treated like this anywhere!
