All staff members were friendly, helpful and made me feel welcome. I never passed a staff member that didn't say "Hello" or ask me if I needed anything. The rooms were clean and maid staff were very thorough. I would highly recommend this hotel!

We like to stay here when we cruise out of Galveston and they offer free long term parking. On weekends the lounge has live music and the drinks are very good. Nice pool with view of the beach and rooms have view of the ocean. Clean and comfortable.
