Upon check in, our room was not ready. When we got into our room, the toilet was broken, the remote to the TV was broken and when we went to the beach on our second day, the cleaning lady stole my prescription medication for my cancer pain. The management would not do a thing and made me feel like I...

The hotel is perfect for a beach getaway. The property is right on the beach so once your parked you never need to drive again until you check out. Beach access is easy using the cross walk or going straight out your door (depending on the building). The restaurant has good food and provides excellent beach views. Two other restaurants...

This place is all in how you look at it. My family had a great stay and really want to go back. They do have a small staff but are willing to help in anyway they can. It is secluded and private, yet homey and a community with private and community decks. There isn't a lot there so go prepared,...

Room wasn't ready by time of checkin. The tiny futon sofa in the room with kitchenette was not like the the picture of the pull-out sofa that was in the picture of the room online. No broom to sweep the room after a day tracking in sand from the beach. No sponges or towels to clean dishes after cooking. Very...

If you want clean towels , clean floor, Unpilled sheets, working laundry facilities, working wifi, trash removed from your room and a quiet room after 10 pm this is not the place to be. The bonus is that they offer no service recovery and you are spending $174 per night and you have the opportunity to talk to both a...

When 'Do not Disturb' signs are on the doors, we do just that..we do not disturb the guest(s). The noise and wi-fi availability on the island during Spring Break week is sometimes difficult to manage. In addition, the demand and usage by a completely full hotel during Spring Break can make speeds slow and/or non-existent. For that, I apologize. A...

Extremely convenient to Houston for a weekend trip. Nice and clean with a very friendly staff, located right on a beautiful beach with great views over the Gulf from many rooms. A great place to plop down for a weekend and get serious about getting your unwind on with friends and family. There is good food at the restaurant on...

After being in Houston for a week after having brain surgery, a retreat to the beach was definitely in order; Galveston seemed a bit too far of a drive, and Surfside Beach was a short and easy hour from the world famous medical center. My girlfriend and I decided to take the well deserved trip, and Ocean Village Hotel and...

I love OVH. I've stayed here many times now and each time has been enjoyable. Best part is, of course, you're right on the beach. The view is great from most all rooms. The rates are still reasonable, which I appreciate. They also get points for having a restaurant and bar onsite—beer, wine and margaritas only. If you prefer a...

I've stayed at the Ocean Village Hotel twice, and both times the rooms were clean and the view very nice. This is an EXCELLENT value. Be sure to get an ocean-view room upstairs. We had a nice balcony overlooking a marshy area. It rained one day, so I spent a good deal of time on the balcony watching barn swallows...

We had a great "room", right on the beach, perfect view! Our "room" had a kitchen/living/dining room separate bedroom and bathroom for a great price! Will definitely stay there again! The view outside the window was great and only a few steps down to the beach!
