    Spring Break Vacation

    WiFi is as spotty for a couple of evenings. Tiles in bathroom needed to be replaced due to cracks. Door locks chirped until you found the “sweet spot” to stop it. Very close to beach, dining and entertainment.

    You owe me a refund.

    We came for Spring Break, stayed for 5 nights. My wife booked through I called Sunday. Already paid in advance of our arrival. I called in advance of our arrival to secure our room, 212. Unfortunately I need the handicapped shower. The guy that I talked to assured me it was all sit up. I told him we would be late, his response was no problem, housekeeping was running behind. We arrived only to find our room was given away. We were given a room without a tub. The shower split water into the bathroom. Our view was a brick wall. We were next to the ice machine, which ran constantly with people filling up ice buckets to fill up cooler after cooler. Also outside our door was your portable trash bin. I went down and complained and was able to switch rooms the next day. But Sunday was a waste of money and time for us. I'd like to see some sort of resolution to this. We stayed about a week during Thanksgiving also. I'm not sure if we will be back or if we will find another hotel.

    Old Hotel near the beach

    The good - The hotel(errr, MOTEL) is located on the beach and walking distance from Kroger's and a few restaurants. The bad - The hotel is old no recent renovations, dirty bathroom, unsecured door, noisy and an overall smell The ugly - Vagrants were roaming around as it is not an inside hotel, it was a motel. Hotwire overcharged us. They charged $325, the hotel gave us the bill and the amount was off by $40.

    Couldn’t get much closer to the beach!!!

    Considering the price I honestly couldn’t fault this place. Not to far from the Galveston pier and there’s loads of shopping and food options including an insane looking Mexican cantina next door (wish I’d got to actually eat there) It’s located across the road from the beach and has plenty of parking. Pretty good breakfast offered also and comfy rooms with plenty of space. Only this we disliked was the room next door had some teens staying who were loud through the night and always seemed to be loitering out the front smoking pot and it’d woft into our room and stink the place out. Obviously the hotel had no control over that. I’d recommend here though.. very good

    Excellent hotel for the price

    Spacious room, comfortable beds. While not facing the beach, we had a great view of the beach from our porch. The floors could be cleaner but the rest of the room was spotless. Will definitely be back!
