I recently stayed here in Oct 2018 during a business trip. The room was nice and clean. I did not use the pool, but it looked very nice. The staff was very friendly. I have stayed here in the past and always had a good experience here.

Many knock Galveston as a dirty, unsavory coastal town. In part this may have been true at one point or another in its history. My history with Galveston has always been a good one beginning in the late 70s and including a 12-year hiatus from the island, and eventual return to

This hotel was beautifully updated and clean. The style and space in the oceanview room was unusually nice as was the bathroom. The limited menu restaurant served very good food. The staff was very friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

We won't have a car-is it possible to walk to the beach? or take trolley?
The beach is across the street. Seawall Blvd can be tricky to cross on foot at times, but the beach is right in front of the hotel on the other side of Seawall Blvd. There is a pier to the east of the hotel as well. There is a small amusement park and of course there is the famous Strand further away. If you wish to see them, I would suggest a Lyft or an Uber.

Is breakfast included?
You can buy breakfast in the lobby but it is quite expensive. You have to drive to the Ihop etc.

Although we have not stayed there during an official spring break, our experience is that because of the location, it attracts a less roudy crowd, you will have a great stay

"First floor room was quiet."
"There are rooms facing the ocean, get one of those!"
