The staff was kind, very helpful, and overall out standing. What I didn’t like was for the price I paid and for how the overall establishment is portrayed, is not what you get for the money that you spend for a room. The rooms are expensive and you get charged for everything. You want a view you need to spend an extra 50. You even have to pay 8 dollars a day to park. Which if I am spending hundreds of dollars to stay there I don’t believe I need to spend more to park my vehicle. I would say if you are willing to pay their high prices to stay there during their peak season. Then I would look else where. The staff is great the establishment isn’t worth the money

Next time I will call the property directly. It’s not holiday ins fault , but do to reserving through a 3rd party . Our reservation was a room with an ocean view . When we got there , holiday in gave us whatever they had because they said they were overbooked through their 3rd party companies. And since I was already charged for the stay , I took it . Also room 111 showers hot water doesn’t work . It wasn’t the room I told my wife and kid about.

Price was NOT what I was told when I booked. I was told I would not be charged until I arrived but the charges hit my bank before I checked in which sent my account into overdraft. There were additional charges such as $8 per car per night and additional $30 per night for incidentals whatever that is. No amenities offered, no complimentary breakfast offered like most Holiday Inns offer. Hard bbeds, night stand light didn't work, microwave old and wouldn't heat, 3 ft balcony, and room with a view translated to a perfect view of the roof with ac units. Planned on two nights but left after first night. Went down the street to another hotel chain got better room with perfect view free FULL breakfast and free parking. Very disappointing. I thought the word "resort" meant better but in this case I'd been better off at a low budget motel. I wouldn't recommend it and definitely wouldn't book with them again!

The Holiday Inn Resort - Galveston, while a bit old, has an open concept, with the front door opening to a breeze way, and balconies on the rear of the rooms overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The bar is one of the best in Galveston, with great live bands on Saturday night, and has a fairly decent restaurant. For an over-nighter to attend a concert or other event, it's just right and at a reasonable price.
