DONT STAY HERE!!!! Stay anywhere but here. Your better off on the beach. The owner is the rudest person I have ever met. My girls were sitting on our balcony talking and enjoying the night view, when the owner came out and told them it's after 10pm you have to get off the balcony. There was mold all over the...

While I've visited this place often I have NEVER once received rude, demeaning,or unpleasantness from the staff who consists of only one person. While reading the other reviews from people who have visited. I just had to laugh! This hotel is located ON THE BEACH so having sand everywhere is kind logical! It's sand you will never be able to...

There aren't many hotels to choose from in Surfside, and this one is on the cheap side. The room was dirty, there was sand in the bed, the toilet clogged up, and in some parts it felt like you were going to fall through the floor. On the good side, you could walk to the beach, the view was nice...

I think there are two hotels on surfside beach (plenty of houses for rent, though). On an impromptu excursion from Galveston, we drove south to the end of the island and found this charming town and decided to spend the night. The motel needs some aesthetic work, but our room s clean, shower worked well, satellite TV functioned, and there...

My mother and I stayed at Cedar Sands motel a couple of weeks ago and we had a great time. I have read some of the reviews about the room being dirty and the manager being rude. This is all UNTRUE! The rooms were VERY clean and tidy. It was so clean the room smelled like bleach. I have been...

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our recent stay at Cedar Sands Motel! :) We stayed on the top floor and had a beautiful view of the ocean! Contrary to what some people might say, the manager isn't bad at all and he's totally harmless. He does have his rule about being on the balcony after 10, but we didn't...

The rooms on the top floor may be fine. We asked for a smoking accommodation and those rooms are on the bottom floor. Half underground. The only view is of tires in the parking lot. The tile floors were wet with humidity the entire time. There was sand in the bed when we first pulled back the bedspread. There is...

My brother, son and I stayed here for a weekend of fishing. The management was helpful in getting us settled in and keyed us in on some possible fishing spots. The rooms were clean and meet our needs for a place to sleep, get showers, relax between fishing and watch the baseball playoffs on the satellite tv. The suite we...

“Rooms dead center of the balcony offer for a beautiful view, however are also dead center with constant beach air. The AC units can get a little musty. I always recommend bringing a plug strip if you're traveling with a family bc the rooms can be a little short on plugs if you have alot of electronics to plug in.”
