Good place to stay for price and beds were very comfortable. Pool area looked awesome. Didn't get to use it but definitely will next time. If you need a shuttle to port Galveston, it's a gold deal they offer...free, but on pick-up time be prepared to wait an hour at least before they get one back to the port.

A mid week one-night stay at the Hilton on Galveston's seawall was a great mini-vacation. Our comfortable room had a balcony with views of the hotel's salt-water pool as well as the gulf. Check in and check out was quick and efficient. The pool with bar and waterfall was particularly lovely.

Wasn't expecting much. Mold on base boards, cracks in walls, dirty linens, incorrect room type, toilet ran, dirty bathroom. The view was good. If you stay here you should bring your own bleach. Just not good.

I always try to stay at Hilton, as I am a Hilton Honors Member. While to pool and swim up bar was what attracted me and was a very nice feature, the room was a big disappointment. We upgraded to a private balcony but it was very small and difficult for two people to move around on. The air conditioning...

Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here. Room was awesome and staff was friendly. Will absolutely stay again and make this our go to Galveston destination place. Only complaint was that the pool bartender was rude so we only stayed at the bar a few minutes were as we would have stayed longer.
