So disappointed in this hotel. Had to wait 20 minutes to check in; not because it was busy, because there was no one at front desk. Room we got had a lovely view but was damp and smelly. Really badly. Room was small and dark, and everything was very dated and in need of repair. Sheets were off white, too...

We had booked two nights in this hotel, but were only able to stay one night due to the terrible odour of mould throughout the hotel. We would not have stayed the first night but checked in very late and were too tired to move so tried to air out room by keeping the balcony door open. Spoke to another...

The first room (409) we checked into had hair in the sheets, there was a foul odor that smelled like wet, moldy carpet and the room was not clean. The furniture and appointments, like the lamps and tv stand, were flimsy and rickety. We complained to the manager and he moved us to room 412. That room was not AS...

Had a reservation, check in was at 3, we got here at 4 to check in, and our room wasn't ready yet and they wanted us to wait until 5. Spoke with the manager. He was very understanding and accommodating and helped us get into another room so we could get ready and make our dinner reservation on time. When...

Didn't get very good directions to find the hotel on the map quest. It took us to the back side of the hotel, it was an alley. We were please once we got to the place other than we had to catch the shuttle to the ship at the place next door.

I'm sorry about the shuttle service sadly we do not offer any longer. The property next to us is the closest location for shuttle service and car storage. We appreciate that you did business with that property and that you stayed at ours. We hope now that you found us you may come back and visit in the future. Thanks

Very clean new looking hotel. Upgraded to ocean front room with private balcony, great views. Super friendly helpful staff. Best continental breakfast I have ever seen, we are talking eggs,pancakes,sausage,bacon,fruit,yogurt... It is too far to walk to the large amusement park pier, will need to drive. You can walk to Jimmy's pier a block away. Amazing fresh seafood, 100 beers,...

We were contacted by IHG (since we usually stay at HIE close to airports) regarding their new resort packages. We purchased the "look-see" package for Galveston. They did not house us at the resort, but a mediocre, at best, Holiday Inn express. The bath fixtures are rusty, the bath ceiling has been painted at, not even wall to wall, and...

Thanks for the great review, but we do not have a restaurant on property. We do offer free breakfast in the morning but nothing as extensive as a restaurant. ... We do hope you either come back or try us out here on the west end of the island. Thanks
