Super 8 is Super!

Very clean rooms. Maid service is excellent. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location for a hotel! Only 1 block to the beach and within walking distance of everything.

Very nice and close to the beach!

This was a very nice hotel for the price and location. Check in was a breeze, it is located only 5 minutes from the beach and it is about 5 minutes from the freeway. The rooms were very nice and clean, they have free continetal breakfast and laundry facilities if needed. I would stay here again if visiting Galveston.

Great Value

Our time-share time was up, and we wanted to stay longer in Galveston with easy access to beach, to dining, to thedowntown attractions. This fit the bill, was very clean, had pleasant and unobtrusive but accommodating staff--and very attractive price!

Room was better then average

Location is good, just off the seawall, Waffle house is right next door, good food. The room was what I expected, reasonably clean, everything worked, could use a little repair, minor though. I would stay again.

Lots of fine seafood places along the Galveston Seawall...Mario's Pizza on 61st St, about 6 blocks from hotel, is a must.

In galveston for work

Sorry to say we could not stay the entire time we needed to due to other reservations in the area already being booked. I work from a week-to-week basis and needed to stay some extra days and the Super 8 could not accomadate my entire work area. Will have to look for housing somewhere else.
