Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Galveston West-Seawall

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel looks newly updated. The guest rooms were good size. The breakfast was outstanding. The staff was extremely polite and asked to assist with everything. This was one of the best staffs I have encountered in my travel.

The first room we were assigned had a mold and mildew problem in the bathroom. It smelled terrible. The staff gave us another room and it was great. No problem. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

2 days in a row around 5 am hearing people walking was really annoying

Nice hotel excellent breakfast clean comfortable rooms and nice helpful staff.

Chris at the front desk was great! He moved us to another room right after check in because the air unit was making a loud noise. No hot water in our room on the 4th floor. Ugh!

We had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express. My only complaint is the breakfast room is too small and some mornings we had to wait to get a table but that would not stop us from staying here on future vacations. Overall, we had a great experience.

We spent the week in Galveston and this hotel was perfect for us. It's located on the seawall so we were able to walk across the street to the water. Not a great beach here - mostly rocks. (you need to go east or west to get to a better beach.) The hotel staff is friendly and the amenities are great for the price. The room was comfortable but honestly we spent most of our time on the beach or at Schlitterbahn. When we come back, we will definitely consider staying here again.

We stayed here the night before our cruise and loved it. The location is great and the staff was Awesome. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of choices and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and our room was spotless. We will stay here again.

The staff at the hotel was wonderful. The hotel is nice. It is across from the seawall but there is no beach access there, only rocks.

we really enjoyed ourselves and will come back in the future

The hotel is across West Seawall Boulevard from the Gulf of Mexico. We had a wonderful suite with an accessible patio overlooking the Boulevard to the water. The sounds of the water against the seawall were marred by the sounds of traffic on the roadway with the door open, vehicle sounds were not too loud with the patio door closed. The room was clean, the staff friendly and helpful with suggestions to nearby restaurants.

The room had some smell but it is in the coastal area so it's expected. Very roomy, more than most places. The wifi didn't work the first day. Overall very nice for the price paid.

Good value for the money. Friendly staff. When we were thete it was very quuet.

Rooms are not bad. Clean and hotel was very quiet on the 4th foor. Make sure you get a room away from the elevators, as they beep on every floor real loud. Internet access was a little weak and slow at best. The tv was wonderful as they have dish network with almost every channel!

The main negative was that I could smell the wet mildew damage from flooding. Not sure of the history (possible Ike damage), but I know this smell well...musty damp. Easily remedied by opening the balcony for fresh air. Beds were great. Breakfast was the standard 1985 approach to meals in hotels. I'm not hard to please in general, but I would have loved a California attitude for fresh and healthy food.

very clean, when I needed assistance with anything someone was always there to help. I recommend this hotel

We were very comfortable & will return again and stay at Holiday Inn Express thank you.

Staff was a little suspect, but if this rom was between 60-90 bucks, it would have been a helluva deal
