After reading all of the different reviews for this hotel, I had to see for myself. I had booked a room for 5 nights, Sunday thru Thursday, thinking what a wonderful time that we would have at a beachfront hotel for 5 nights at such a very low rate! My wife was cautious to say the least about attempting to... More

I would like to apologize for the pest issue you had. We work closely with our pest management company to battle all of the pests that come with a humid and hot climate and an exterior corridor motel. Insects, birds and small animals are a definite Galveston issue. I hope you will give us another opportunity in the future if... More

Firstly staff are great. The accommodation is terrible, damp, strong chemical smell hiding mouldy smells. The rooms are very humid despite air-com which suggests damp and mould. We checked out after 30 mins, we should have stayed for three nights but our health was more important. As we booked though Hotels.com no refund which is not the hotels fault as... More

Very friendly staff greeted us, but it went downhill from there. The building needs some refreshing, to say the least. The advertised coffee maker was not in the room, there was no chair, & there were only enough bath linens for one guest(booked as a double). The room smelled of long ago smoke & the ice machine on our floor... More

The building is a bit dirty and run down. Our door to the bathroom obviously hadn't had a good scrub down in a while. The handle on the door and on the tub both broke the last day we were there. The owners need to put a bit of money into a deep clean & a bit of remodeling. With... More

For the price it's not bad. The beds are a little small and when you walk in your room it smells funny. But it's not bad the rooms are clean we will stay here again . Love that you can walk across the street and be at the beach. They have a nice pool. Free parking for guest
