Worst hotel i have ever stayed at. Low grade cheap breakfast. Everything was broken down. Not worth $100 a night, worth less than $50.

Everything is on the 2nd and 3rd floor with no elevator. Not great for handicap people. Not much of a breakfast. The good thing was they have a car that takes you to the pier to catch a ship and you can leave your car for a week, but you have to get a cab back to pick up your car.

The front desk man was very friendly and helpful. He may have been the owner. The hotel is probably an older property so it didn't offer contemporary furnishings, but the exterior is neatly presented. The rooms are just ok with a bed and a bathroom. But, I like a clean tidy room and the bathroom floor and baseboards probably had not been swept regularly or possibly in awhile and that's difficult to take when you just want to relax but feel that you must be on guard. I also felt it was a little pricey for what was offered. This hotel does offer cruise parking and a complimentary shuttle with a pleasant and friendly driver. However, you only find out at that point that there is no cruise shuttle pickup and you must take a taxi back to the location. We love Galveston and have gone there for years for vacations and cruises but I won't stay at this hotel again. I will plan to spend more for a different location.

The front desk staff that worked during the day and evening was not very friendly and not very helpful. The staff member that worked in the morning, who was also the shuttle driver to the cruise terminal, was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and accommodating. The breakfast was a typical continental breakfast, varying cereals and pastries with juice. There were breakfast sandwiches available, but you hand to take them out of the freezer and cook them yourselves. Not a deal breaker. The hotel wasn't very close to any restaurants, but that's has nothing to do with the hotel itself. The rooms were nicely air conditioned and clean. They had coffee pots, microwaves and mini-fridges. There were nice flat screen televisions, however the resolution on them was horrible. Beautiful location and very close to the beach.
