Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Galveston West-Seawall

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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

when i showed up, not only myself but others had to wait 20-30mins for our rooms to be ready after 4pm check-in time...the hotel feels cheap in some areas....these rooms should be 70-90& for rooms at the most not anything over 100....somebody is getting over

We were very satisfied with this hotel. Its right across the Gulf and within walking distance to one of the many Piers. Very satisfied and will stay again!!

The room and common areas were clean, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. As a single mom traveling with 2 daughters, safety was very important. The underground parking was well lit.

morning staff somewhat friendly, good location, would choose the hotel again.

My son and I like to try random hotels in the area just for fun. I took him to Galveston this time, and he loves Holiday Inns, so we picked this one. It was awesome. The room was clean, the staff was super friendly, and you can't beat the view of the ocean.

Compared to other holiday Inn expresses, this hotel lacked friendliness and cleanliness. These are essential for hotels. Upon check in, the clerk who checked us in was ogling me and my girlfriend was standing right there. When we got to our room the toilet and sink were not previously cleaned . When we called down to the front desk the same clerk said there was nothing she could do about it. So basically, we had to use the dirty bathroom. The toilet looked as if it's previous user sprayed the contents of their bum all around the bowl. It was gross.
