Our room was a nice size and we actually had a view of the water from the walkway. The price was quite reasonable and the room was clean. I'd stay again when in the area. I had no problems in our two night stay and the management was friendly.

For the price, this place was OK. Only stayed one night. They allowed early check in which was really nice and the location was great. AC didn't work (didn't realize till next morning) and breakfast was muffins and cereal. Employees were very nice and again for the price is was OK.

Our room was infested with roaches and our shower did not work. They were sold out so we could not switch rooms. There's mold around the shower and tub. We only stayed one night, cruise the next morning. Stay somewhere else. Do not unpack your bags and leave you're suitcases open. You will take roaches home with you.

Not a good experience; room not ready at 3pm check in, outside areas really bad and felt dirty, room door had graffiti on it, room a good size but dirty floors and in desperate need of an update, roaches running about, breakfast awful with stale bagels and other equally unappetizing things! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and...

It was decent enough for what I paid for the rooms. Staff was very nice and helpful with any situations we had. They even warmed up the pool a little more because of the cool front that came in. Pretty view of the beachotdog. Liked the location able to walk around to other places.

Horrible hotel, old, dirty, loud, transient type people living in the hotel. Not so secure. Waited a while for our room to be ready well after check in, had to drive around Galveston an hour or two to wait for a call from the front desk. Room was a "king suite"....a kind dump....air wouldn't cool, had one towel, no coffee...

The room smelled musty and the bathroom smelled like someone smoked in it even though it was a non-smoking room. There was one washcloth and 2 bath towels but no hand towel. The breakfast was nothing special. no butter or spread for the muffins, the cereal choices were mostly sugary, and the area wasn't kept clean. The staff seemed friendly,...

The location was perfect. We don't mind walking a couple miles one way or the other, so in that respect, it was no hardship and very centrally located for everything we wanted on the Seawall.

The only reason I was able to take a week long vacation was finding a deal on this site for a room here averaging $50 a night. I saw some of the other reviews and decided that a little rest and relaxation outweighed the bad. I understand the building is old, and luckily I can take a lot of punishment...
