Great place to stay, great service, great music and dancing at b.jiggers bar at the hotel. We had a great view of the Gulf of Mexico from our room and balcony. The people visiting the hotel and the staff made the stay enjoyable. Tons of friendly people.

I stayed there during a spring break weekend and did not like the place at all. My early check in for an extra fee did take 2 hours of waiting before getting into a room which still was not cleaned up. While my room was relatively big, well kept but a bit dark, the hotel itself is in need for...

My family stayed here in August and we Loved it. We didn't really ever have to leave the resort. We had a kitchen in our room so we could cook our own food. It was great being right on the beach but we could also use the nice pool. My little girl and I went down and played in the...

Staff members were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and very comfortable. Before leaving on our cruise the next morning we ate the breakfast in their restaurant. Very delicious and a huge variety. We rode the shuttle to the port and back after the cruise. We will return. Great service for the money.

My family and I recently stayed at this hotel. Our room was in a deplorable state. All furniture had multiple scuffs, scratches or was simply not in usable condition. Tv did not work and staff never responded to requests to fix (3 day stay). Outlets did not work either-same lack of responsiveness. The ceilings were popcorn type, painted cinderblock on...

I am taken back on what has been said. We put a lot of time in preplanning for Spring Break and training our staff to attend to all of our guests and to go above and beyond. I sincerely apologize that you did not have a great stay. It is my job for all guests to leave in a great...

We arrived yesterday at the hotel and to our surprise they are working on the beach. Needless to say we booked here for beach access. Front office not accommodating. Because we had a prepaid room they would not refund us. So I called the 1800 number. They were great and talked to the hotel to do something since they were...

I am sorry to hear that you had a poor experience at our hotel this week. The parks board of Galveston started a project (Historical Seawall Nourishment Project) in late January (Start date was to be Dec 2016), . Unfortunately the progress of this put it right in front of our hotels this week. We did have representation explaining the...

While the room was not a suite, it was acceptable. All rooms face the ocean view. Pool was private from the street. Places to sit in both the sun and the shade. No rowdy swimmers. Quiet and relaxing. Conducive to reading a book. First floor rooms don't have an ocean view, but are directly accessible to the pool.

Rooms are dated but clean. We were in an upper level room facing ocean (recommend upper room so you don't hear lounge noise). We could walk to the Ihop (5 minutes), to the Pleasure pier (an hour walk one way) and to the sporting good store (15 minutes) to get a rain jacket. The band in the lounge was awesome,...

Hotel is very accommodating. Staff attentive to your needs (e.g. we needed to replace our room coffee maker). They did it right away. By the way bring your own K-Cups if you would like. They do have live music in the evenings. So parking will be jammed packed. Also just a walk away from ice-cream bar right next door at...
