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.

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.

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.

Okay if you just need a place to sleep

I chose this motel being that it was the cheapest and I just needed a place a stay for one night. The room was fairly clean except for the fact that it had moldy smell to it. Some of the light fixtures didn't work and we could hear everything that was said and done next door. Location is great and a block away from the beach. Minus the noisy neighbor and the moldy smell and it would have been a decent room.
