39th wedding anniversary

Was nice enough but saw some bugs in the bathroom. That always creeps me out, makes me wonder if I am taking them home with me. The cleaning person did notalways make it tto our room but not really her fault, I saw the hotel was hiring so my guess is they were understaffed. We have come to this same super 8 several years in a row. I would suggest some different foods for their breakfast, something with more protein and less sugar, I always bring my own, never eat theirs tho hubby does.

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.

What's that smell??

Overpriced for what it was, the room smelled bad. The shower was not near hot enough. The only thing that worked well was the ac. With all the other hotels in the area I will not be staying here next time ;)

last minute romantic getaway

Was disappointed with the facility overall. Was fooled by the reviews / pics into paying extra to stay here. Was not expecting the Hilton but it seemed cheap and tacky. I won't stay here again.
