The room was not maintained and dirty. There was some sort of low frequency humming noise that went on all night. They provided ear plugs on the night stand which we thought was odd until about 2am when I actually had to use them. I almost gave up and slept in my car the rest of the night. Parking was an additional $8 and no free breakfast as usually expected with holiday inn. Do yourselves a favor an stay somewhere else. I will never stay there again. Nasty place.

We took an impromptu trip to Galveston last week after the Biker’s Rally departed the island. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach; which I recommend to others, based on value($$), location, and hotel amenities. A restaurant is on the premises as well as a lounge. Every room above the 1st floor has a balcony with a small table and 2 chairs. Rooms on higher level floors provide a great view of the ocean where you can enjoy coffee in the morning, and/or a cocktail or glass of wine in the evening. Each room has a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker (with complimentary coffee or tea). The building is clean and maintained well and the staff is very responsive.

The hotel staff and manager are very friendly, and accommodating. Upon our arrival the check-in process went very well. A room was ready and we were allowed early access. Being an IHG member we appreciated the General Manager, Quinn, providing us with an upgrade to a higher level floor and a complimentary breakfast the next day. Quinn strives to make sure his guests have a positive experience! Overall, the Holiday Inn Resort on the Beach deserves a 5-star rating.

Great view of the sea and the beaches. Luxurious rooms and lounges. Naturally looking swimming pool. 3 days of stay was ideal here for getting rid of the jet lag and exploring Galveston. Food was just as great as the place, but the kitchen closes a bit early though. Breakfast is awesome.

I have stayed at this hotel on 2 diff occasions over the summer and would highly recommend this hotel for families with children. Holiday Inn has definitely focused on making their hotel a kid friendly environment in the summertime with children staying for free, children films by the pool at night, games, snow cones, and so many more fun activities for children at this hotel too. The staff was professional, friendly, and the hotel is very clean too. I would like to personally thank Annalise, Dana, Kristina, and all the rest of the staff for being so kind during both of our stays at this hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Thanks again, Lisa SIsneros.

Great location. That is where the compliments end. Guest service was satisfactory but not exceptional, rooms are sort of outside there is a breezeway instead of a balcony so it feels more closed in than regular outside doors. The sink in the bathroom had a huge crack in it, the shower floor felt gritty, I'm hoping because the housekeepers used comet or ajax and didn't rinse good... however I'm almost afraid to admit it may have been sand. There is a slight odor, maybe musty smelling. It is quite loud coming from the bar on a Tuesday night and I was on the 7th floor. Does not have complimentary breakfast.

This is a business trip so I'm not sure what the cost of the room is but it is too much.

Stay with caution and low expectations.
