“2nd visit, would stay again...”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is a mid level condo property, right at the corner of 61st and Seawall. We used vrbo.com to find an owner and rented directly through them. Condo was clean, and had all the amenities we needed for the long weekend. We especially love that one pool is heated, a big plus during the spring, and that the property offered free wi-fi. We also use the outdoor showers next to each pool, and the ice machines in each hallway (a quarter a bucket)...little things that help make the stay nice.We prefer to set up on West Beach for long days, but like that this property is a short walk across Seawall for a quick stretch of beach. There is also a Mickey D's and gas/convenience store right across 61st.

We saw lots of maintenance keeping things clean and in check and parking monitors to make sure only renters used the spaces. Overall it's basic and comfortable, but would recommend something with more space for more than about a 3 day trip. For what we paid, a good experience and review.

We went to Galveston to celebrate our anniversary and decided on Casa Del Mar, because my boyfriend had stayed there when he was a kid. This hotel has been around for a long time and we weren't sure how well it had been maintained; the recent reviews on tripadvisor persuaded us to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The pictures of the rooms on the website are very accurate. The room was clean and looked recently painted. The kitchen was outfitted with basic dishes, glasses, and flatware, a frying pan, sauce pan, and a larger pot which was large enough for pasta. There was a toaster, can opener, and microwave. There aren't any sharp kitchen knives, so if you plan on cooking bring yours from home. The refrigerator was spotless and had ample space for our food. The freezer had ice trays w ice already in them.

We stayed in a room with a view of the Gulf and it was totally worth the price difference. The hotel staff was also very accommodating. We were able to check in at 3:15 when we arrived from Houston. The first room we were in was on the first floor and didn't have the best view. My boyfriend called the front desk and we were moved to a higher floor. They also have suggestions on places to eat.

It was a great weekend and we will certainly be back.

We booked this hotel because of the "kitchen" and the price. We are a retired couple on a lengthy road trip and wish to have the option of preparing our own meals.

The on line photos are exactly what you are getting. Our unit was on the 3rd floor and we had an ocean view from the balcony. The hotel is across the street from the seawall and a small sandy beach area. We were able to sit on the balcony and see and hear the waves from the gulf.

Check in was smooth, staff very pleasant . The unit is showing its age in it's decor and ammenities. It was clean, bed was comfortable, towels were plentiful, housekeeping staff excellent.

The fully equiped kitchen had a few minuses.......would like to have had a colander/strainer, salad or mixing bowls, veggie peeler, drying rack for doing the dishes, scrubbie for the pots and pans a sharp knife or two !

The unit can sleep 6 but would be very crowded with 6 and not enough seating for 6 .The Master BR with its Queen bed is small and the bed is against a wall , not great if you have to get up at night! Our rate of 80.00 seemed appropriate for what we got. When we inquired about 2 extra nights (Fri/Sat) because it was Spring Break the price more than doubled......I would never spend 160.00 on this unit !

It worked for us, but was not a unit worth close to 200.00, but I guess you pay for the location and the season.

Room Tip: 3rd floor and to the rear of the complex, away from Seawall Blvd.

Me and my husband came down here for our anniversary trip. Which was also our 1st trip to galveston. When we got to hotel we were booked for a partial ocean view room. We upgraded (I asked for the very front room that faced the ocean) and paid about 50.00 extra. We stayed here 6 days. We were on the 3rd floor. We loved our room it was perfect for us. The kitchen was very nice also had plates/bowls/silverware. Slept very good on our bed. The balcony view was beautiful!! Had a nice tv in the other room. Housekeeping did a great job. There's a golden corrall to the right of the hotel. Your on the seawall where everything is which made this location perfect it's right in the middle of everything. There's a nice heated pool we swam in for a couple hours. There's a security man that walks the property at all hours of the day. Overall we would defintely stay again. Loved the hotel, view and the location!!

Room Tip: Ask for the 3rd floor

We stayed in a privately owned condo which was wonderful (no experience with the ones rented through Casa Del Mar directly). I will say the grounds were perfectly manicured. The heated pool was actually heated. While swimming my family was asked by security if it was warm enough (very nice). Security was seen all throughout the day. Can I say location, location, location. Right across from the beach and fishing pier. Take advantage of the surf shop across the street on 61st. They rent surf boards for $25 per day. The ones further down are too pricey. We will stay here again if traveling back to Galveston.

Our first visit with family was great and perfect. Our second visit was just my Husband and myself was not so great. Coffee pot was dirty (actually still had coffee in the filter); the room needed a lot of TLC. Fridge would not close; rust on lights ln bathroom. Staff was still very friendly but I was disappointed that when I told them what I found they did not respond. We also told them we needed a non-smoking room, and what we got was a room people had at one time smoked in and smelled like it, we ended up with headaches from staying there.

Great location; right on the seawall with one of the fishing piers across the street, great restaurants and a grocery store just down the street. Rooms have bunkbeds for the kids, seperate bedroom for mom and dad, kitchenette with oven, stove, microwave, fridge, and all the utensils. The place coud probably use some updating, but it was clean, spacious, and perfectly located. Highly recommended.
