This place, while practically on the beach, secluded, and with a very nice ambiance, is run horribly, and I'm being generous when I say "horribly." The manager/property owner is inflexible, rude, and unaccommodating. I spoke with him on the phone several times before booking, first we couldn't bring our dog, and then when I told him my parents were treating...

This great place has gone down rapidly since becoming a corporate-owned property. There is no longer an atmosphere of friendliness. The manager seems to be simply biding time. He is rude and unresponsive. I asked for a blanket to make up the sofa bed, which is advertised as a BED, and was told "do not have extra blankets, people tear...

The cedar Sands represents an excellent place to enjoy the ocean without the crowds and bustle of nearby Galveston. The motel itself is fairly basic, but makes the most of the space and location it has. The rooms are clean, there is a courtyard with BBQs for guests to use and they enforce a 10pm noise ban which makes for...

I highly recommend NOT staying at the cedar sands motel. The rooms were dirty and the manager was extremely inflexible. I really think it's a waste of your time to go here. Run down rude manager who exerted power over us. He made our stay uncomfortable

We were planning a trip to Galveston, but quickly realized that between the price & availability, we were going to need to look elsewhere. I am SO GLAD I found the Cedar sands motel online!! There were a few other motels that were listed in the area- but we took a chance on Cedar Sands. The location is perfect! It's...

My bf and I came here looking to get away for a few days. Galveston is where I've been before, but it's too touristy and people crowd the beaches. So, we came to Freeport. This motel is very standard and has Dish Network in the rooms. Yes, it is not the nicest place, but who spends their whole day in...

This is your BASIC motel. If all you need is a place for shower, bed, walking distance to the beach, and affordable price, this place is for you. DO NOT ask for more! Cons: The bed is not comfortable. The AC makes loud noises at night. There's no place to hang your clothes. There's no room service. No one to...

I stayed Friday night to Tuesday morning (4 nights). The location was nice -- walk across the gravel & sand parking lot, and you are on the beach. Going south toward the jetty is rocky (bring water shoes) but going north on the beach (towards Galveston) there are miles and miles and miles of beach. Saturday & Sunday afternoons are...

Do NOT stay here! Especially if you have bad allergies. The rooms have been renovated by painting them. There is MOLD showing through the paint on the walls, mold in the picture frame above the bed, mold on the bed AND on the pillows. It was absolutely disgusting. Will post photos for proof.

We spent Mother's day weekend at this wonderful motel and even though the weather wasn't the greatest the stay was. We had a down stairs room, because we have pets, and it was very nice. The rooms are a bit small but very clean and well maintained. The manager was very accomodating with all of our needs. The room came...

“Rooms dead center of the balcony offer for a beautiful view, however are also dead center with constant beach air. The AC units can get a little musty. I always recommend bringing a plug strip if you're traveling with a family bc the rooms can be a little short on plugs if you have alot of electronics to plug in.”
