    Very small room. Felt like in a Cage. In the web site, it says room with a view, but only a small window to the Ocean. They advertise pictures from the sister property, like Roof Top Bar but they are far away.

    The staff is great at this hotel but unfortunately the hotel rooms have a horrible musty, mouldy smell to them. Price of coffe at the bar was outrageous! Ordered 2 double espresso for $18 US!!

    This hotel is a dated property but still offers a good nights rest with renovated rooms. Check in process was speedy, room sound barrier was excellent, on property amenities were as expected, and proximity to beach is optimal. The nightly parking rate was reasonable and indoors to ensure security of vehicle. The daily resort fee is the only hidden cost which isn't overall that bad. Worth it if you are looking for a 4 star experience in Galveston.
