The rooms are suites with full kitchens and stocked full of basics needs if you want to cook a meal and prepare something. You have a stove, oven, microwave, toaster and anything else you you may need. The rooms are pretty clean but beware the rooms are not cleaned daily. You have to return your towels to the desk to...

Rooms were clean, comfortable with full kitchen and stocked with essentials for an extended stay. The suite we were in had a separate bedroom from the living area making it quite spacious. The facility was older, but reasonably well maintained. The staff was friendly and unusually helpful. The price was low for the Galveston area and as such, I felt... More

Although the hotel is not on the beach, it is a great location and easily accessible. We had two rooms and the staff put us close together for easy access. Full size fridge, microwave, stovetop and a dishwasher! Target close by for last minute items. The hotel staff were very nice and accommodating.

This is a great place to stay and at a great price. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The gentleman at the front desk was exceptionally friendly, and the girls that worked at night were very helpful also. Clean and comfortable rooms. Pool is very nice and clean. It's very easy to find.
