A group of friends and I decided to spend New Years Eve in Galveston and we visited the bar attached to this hotel. The bartender, Cody, was amazing! He was very attentive even though it was busy. He knew his drinks and even went out of his way to make us laugh. Great place! Can't wait to visit again!

I had the pleasure of having Cody wait on us at the bar. He really knows his drinks and took great care of us. If you ever visit this hotel make sure to go see Cody at the bar and ask him to make you his special. Excellent service! I will be back.

The manager, Tashawna, helped combine reward points and additional nights when making initial reservation. Easy and quick check-in. Clean and inviting rooms. Free breakfast for first morning. Excellent food in Jetty Restaurant. Immediate response when maintenance was called. Rapid checkout when it was necessary to leave quickly, due to illness of a guest. No questions asks and much support.

i actually thought the hotel would be a little more updated because its called a resort but it was super clean and the staff was extremely friendly and the view was great so it all worked out fine but my impression of a resort was a little different than this.
