The staff is nice but the there is only one elevator working which is horrible in a busy hotel. I was charged over $400 a night and still had to pay for parking each day. That’s ridiculous. Hotel restaurant is understaffed so service is not good.

The main elevator was broken so everyone had to use a service elevator. This caused people to have to wait for very long times to get to their floor. The employee I asked said that the elevator has been broken since he had started working there - over as months ago. The restaurant and bar on the property was understaffed. There was one person working there Servín food and making drinks the day we left. He told me he was planning on quitting because he was so frustrated by having no help. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable but I would not recommend this hotel.

I was prepared to leave a wonderful review until I checked my bank account today. My 8 year old son and I spent 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The room was clean, the housekeeping staff were very pleasant, and my son loves being able to order food right from the pool. We ordered food 3 times, but when I checked my bank account today there were 4 charges, with the last one being over $200. I called the hotel and a woman argued with me that it was a breakfast charge - which we didn’t even eat breakfast - then told me it was a combination of all of my bar charges. I explained that we charged food to our room 3 times and those where accounted for. This is an additional charge that I did not authorize. She then told me it was for incentives, which I was already charged $75 at check in. She told me I must not understand and to hold on. After the phone rang for more than 5 minutes to some extension that never picked up, I hung up and called back. I called 3 more times and no one ever answered the phone, but once I was disconnected. I understand that mistakes happen, but this was not handled well. This is our favorite hotel in Galveston, but if they continue to blow me off, we will not return.

Room was okish clean..nothing super but ok. Has beach view and its own room conditioner(window). Pool looked nice enough however when staff was asked to proved umbrellas in 100 degrees he said there isnt any, while behind the door were plenty. At check in was asked to pay 16$ parking and instand 40$ hold ahead. It is an old hotel with great potential. Some staff were unfriendly but most were helpful. I would maybe come back here one more time as second try, but on my end wasnt too great.

The place is mostly all ocean view. Somehow we got a first floor, handicapped room with No balcony. Not what we thot we were getting. We wanted ocean view and that’s why we chose this hotel. Not worth the money for what we thot we were getting. A bit upset.
