I brought my family to Galveston for a short weekend getaway and found Red Roof's price to be competitive for the area at about 166/night. However, after arriving to the facility, I quickly realized that I had made a mistake. The environment was unsanitary-mold and mildew line the stairs and hallways, cockroaches were everywhere, and upon arriving, there were teenagers...

The only good about this hotel is by the water and front desk Toby other than that... hate the rooms, the hallways/walkways and just the environment was nothing that I would ever stomach again. If you can stay at a Hotel Inn or some higher level hotel... DO IT!

My husband booked this hotel so we could spend a nice weekend in Galveston with our children, when we got there Friday night the first room we stayed in smelled sour.(like a grease trap at a fast food restaurant) We saw a roach crawling around looking like it was about to lay it's egg.(This was not a big tree roach,...

Thank you so much for advising the front desk while you were at the hotel about any pest issue you observed. This information allows us to put the room out of service so that it can be treated by a pest management professional. On the island, everyone battles all of the pests that thrive in the South Texas climate. Your...

Rooms clean but very dated, limited electric plugs and slow elevators. The hotel is right on beach, close to pharmacy and grocery store. Nice self-service breakfast, good coffee. The staff is very friendly and the tall black lady behind the desk needs a raise. I saw her handling the customers at counter, telephone and gave good advice on where to...

I would not recommend this place to anyone due to the BED BUGS and unsanitary conditions of this Inn. The filth began with the lobby front doors & elevator - filthy. The stairwell banisters were covered in something gross. The poolside chairs were all moldy and filthy. The room - Moldy bathroom, loose toilet seat, no tissue (staff not given...

Red Roof Inn takes all pest complaints and especially bed bug compaints seriously. Our pest management company found no pest activity in the room. My apologies, Ms. Ray, for the loose toilet seat and the rust on the handrails. I hope you will consider staying with Red Roof Inn when you are looking for an economy motel on the beach...

I decided at the last minute to drive down to Galveston to enjoy the beautiful weather and wasn't even sure I could find a reasonably priced hotel room for a few nights, especially since it was a weekend. I stopped at Red Roof Inn and the man at the front desk, I believe his name was Mike, was so pleasant...

We stayed here before our cruise. Don't make the same mistake we did. This is one of the worst, dirtiest, nastiest places I have ever stayed. There were only 2 working lights in the room. 2 hand towels, 2 soaps. That's it. Everything was sticky, including the sheets. We slept in our clothes on top of the bed with our...

My apologies for your disappointment in your stay. You rightfully expect all lights to work in your room. The propery is on the beach and the humidity does make everything feel sticky and during normal use the air conditioner usually moderates the effects of the humidity. Sincerely, Kathleen Trindade General Manager

Great location, very friendly staff, beautiful pool and grounds, however rooms are dated, housekeeping needs improvements, room amenities such as tissues, extra towels, non working phone, and less than clean room made us doubt a return. Hallways are dark at night. Overall maintenance needed. Housekeeping did not show up on day two.
