I booked the room on a Friday night for a weekend retreat.. Larry, one of the front desk personnel was kind enough to change my room with a view and near the elevator since I told him I just had surgery. The room is big enough for 2 people, clean sheets and soft pillows. The room is clean except there...

Had a great night with the wife doing karaoke yes we were the best ones here except for Cody price he was the best bartender I've ever been around and he can sing like a madman. Would definitely come back next time we are on the island and recommend this to all of our friends and family.

We arrived at the hotel around 2:30 in the afternoon. We had requested early check-in and got in line to see if our room was available. We waited almost 30 minutes to check-in- one person at the front desk and a long line of people. Finally another person came to help. We asked about the breakfast- we were told we...

In general I always try to make my travel arrangements ahead, especially when it comes to hotels so that I can get the type of room that works best for any particular trip. This trip was no different. My wife and I were traveling with our almost two year old daughter and for us a king bed room usually works...

Stayed at this hotel for one night. Would have added another, but was not impressed. The king room was large and clean also affordable. Free Parking, staff helpful. The hotel is across a very busy street from the sea wall beach. No cross walks. There was a tiny balcony overlooking the parking lot, street snd beach but there was a...

While our daughter was at UTMB we stayed here. This Holiday Inn Resort is not up to the Holiday Inn Standards. Don't let the lobby fool you. Rooms are small beds are horrible ! As a rewards member I am greatly dissatisfied ! 😒 I would not recommend this property for your stay in Galveston .

Stayed here for few days after returning from cruise. Excellent location but disappointing hotel in urgent need of modernisation. Clean linens, tired furniture. Housekeeping fine. Disappointing breakfast...was expecting buffet but only available on weekends. Went out to dine so unable to comment. Paid for sea view but building work happening outside. Balcony extremely cramped and not clean enough to use.
