My family and I stayed at the Hilton Galveston as our precruise hotel. The hotel was decent. Average sized double room. They provided an inflated air mattress for additional bedding. We had a balcony that faced the back parking lot but we still had a view of the beach. The balcony was very hot with the afternoon sun. The hotel...

Overall our stay in Galveston was nice and the Hilton is one of the nicer hotels on the island. The pool and swim up bar were very nice, but would say the drink prices felt like I was at a baseball game ($9 for a midshelf mixed drink). The location is right on the Seawall and next to the San...

Great location! Many rooms have a good ocean view. The elevators were too few and didn't always seem to be working right (wrong numbers lighting up on display), but the wait for elevators was not excessive. Staff was super friendly.

It was great beach weather, however the sun was blistering. The cabana allowed us to get relief without leaving poolside. We spent the day with friends playing board games & snacking, taking a dip in the pool whenever we wanted to cool off. Attendants Barbara and Morgan were great!

Short family trip. Balcony room. The rooms and balconies were much smaller than I expected--but were enjoyable. Room service was nice and had a decent menu. A couple trips to the bar, very friendly and well stocked. Enjoyed the location. Quite close to many attractions.

This hotel was not what I expected for a Hilton. It seemed more like a nice Holiday Inn. Booked a room with 2 queen beds and they were only doubles. Satellite for TV and Internet kept on going out so nothing would work. I probably will try another hotel next time. This place was just average. Not the best but...

Hotel was clean - great location on the seawall and next door to Landry's Seafood House. Pool was very nice with a swim up bar - pool large enough to accommodate a large crowd. Only one hot tub.

Nice, clean hotel, but very crowded with families. Great place to bring them. It's right across the street from the beach, but the road is fairly busy. Nice pool area with swim up bar and friendly bartenders. Great room on the top floor with view of the ocean. Not sure why they don't have balconies on all their rooms, just...

Thank you for your kind words about the hotel and staff. I am sorry that we did not meet expectations on your stay and encourage that you return during the offseason when traffic is less as the hotel is in their busy season. We value all business and thank you once again.

Reviewed 28 July 2016

Overall, hotel stay was fine. Only thing I had a problem with was that I was promised an adjoining room because we had two young teenagers with us. When we arrived, they were unable to give us that. They told us that whoever promised us that on the phone when making the reservation should not have done that.
