If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay on the beach and don't really care about amenities or anything else, this place will work. Only 1 ice maker working on property.

I was not satisfied, we couldn’t even shower, the water didn’t drain. There was a leak from the ceiling that was failing to our air mattress. Never staying here again.

I stayed two nights, a Friday-Sunday trip. Positives: -Quick access to the beach across the street -Free onsite parking -Close proximity to restaurants/bars/Pleasure Pier Negatives: -Old property -Outdated amenities -Ice machine always broken -Rude staff -Very loud outside of the hotel, everyone in muscle cars and motorcycles really enjoyed revving their engines at all hours of the night (not the hotel's fault, but good luck getting any sleep) -For how outdated it is, I thought $377 for two nights was extremely high. I wouldn't pay more than $200 for another stay here. For a quick trip to Galveston, this hotel was fine, although, I would not choose to stay here again.
