HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

My son (3 years old) and I went to Galveston to look at schools because we'll be moving shortly. The owners have an adorable little boy that was close to the same age. The 2 quickly became friends and even swapped some toys. My son is also autistic and has sensory processing disorder... and was sick. The owners were so...

It was too expensive. No pool. On top of that the staff was great, but at 9 O clock the morning of check some one tried to come in luckily we had the other lock on the door.

The room smelled really bad. Considering the price we paid and the location, I'll pony up a few extra bucks to stay on or closer to the seawall next time. Positive notes include on site parking for cruisers and two convenience stores next door. Is only a $20 taxi ride to the cruise ships. Staff was fairly friendly.

This location is perfect for cruising out of Galveston. It is cheap and feels safe. It is a very old property and in great need of renovation; however, it was clean and for the price it was just what we needed.

Rooms were still dirty and floor turned the kids feet black. Dead bugs in the dressers drawers. Would only stay here again if I absolutely had to. Got locked out of the room keys no longer worked had to go down to the front office and ask them to reissue keys that would work.
