A call from the hotel at 8 PM while enroute from Dallas took me by complete surprise. The welcome call advised of inclement driving conditions...assured me my room would be available when I arrived at 2 AM and the gentleman could not have been more generous of his time and actual concern. Quickly established a late 2 PM checkout...registered me...

The hotel is fantastically situated and the views are fantastic of the sea. We had a great room but we noticed there was a pair of earplugs left for us( only one set for two) which unnerved us slightly. However it became apparent why. There are massive air conditioning unit in front of the rooms on the roof of the...

We stayed Wednesday-thru-Friday of Thanksgiving 2016. Unfortunately, we were forced to leave a day early, but since we had prepaid by booking early, no consideration was given. Nevertheless, it was a good stay, though we will choose a different hotel next time.

I wasn't sure about staying here but we wanted to take advantage of the free parking while on a cruise. Very pleasantly surprised. Checkin was smooth and the staff was very helpful with arrangements.

We went on a small get away to Galveston on the day we got married. The employees at the hotel made our room special. There were rose petals, a cute towel heart on the bed, chocolate covered strawberries, and a bottle of champagne on ice. Everyone was polite and the place was clean.
