Nice hotel, great seeing the water from our room!

Posted 19-Nov-2014
We enjoyed walking less than a block to the water; seeing Pleasure Pier from our room, it was so colorful at night. The service at the hotel was friendly and helpful, we also enjoyed the good variety of breakfast items. The bed was comfortable and the room supplied with necessary things to make the stay pleasant.

Great stay

Posted 10-Nov-2014
Pros: convenience and access to sea wall and biker attractions.
Cons: ice machine in every floor
Location: Galveston Texas the things I like to do are in walking or a short drive from hotel.
Room was nice next time I might request a room with a view. All I could see was the roof next store.

Needs Some Improvements

Posted 5-Nov-2014
Pros: Location near Pleasure Pier and restaurants.
Cons: Rooms need freshened up and the mechanicals need some attention.
Although outwardly the hotel looked to be in good shape, the interior and features are getting kinda tired. There were stains in the carpet, cracks in the walls and the air conditioner was incredibly loud. Fortunately we really didn't have to run it as the weather was mild. The bathroom was clean and in good shape however. We did not receive maid service during the day and asked the desk to supply more bath towels. When we returned late that night there were no towels. So service was not very good. Bed was comfortable for me, but the pillows were small and pretty flat.

Nice Hotel great location!

Posted 21-Oct-2014
Pros: location and breakfast
Cons: shuttle could be free!
Location: Lots of nearby restaurants bars and places to sit and people watch. Right on the seawall with many cars out cruisin by!
We stayed in Galveston prior to a Cruise. I wanted something fairly close to the port but on the beach with a good view. I got it. Our room balcony looked out toward the Gulf of Mexico with wonderful views of the Galveston Pleasure Pier, which is really nice at night!. The room was clean and comfortable and there was many restaurants and bars near by as well the beach right across the street. We walked a couple of blocks to a bike rental place and rented one to ride around the area. My husband has limited walking ability so this was just perfect. Breakfast had wonderful fresh make yourself waffles , eggs and sausage, cereals and sweet buns. Something for everyone and they had a shuttle to the port for $10.00 pp. There was a convenience store near by for any needs too! I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Stay in Houston before you book here! Horrilbe

Posted 7-Oct-2014
Pros: Room was clean. Nothing else
Cons: Maybe some staff, other than front desk, that speaks English? Tear it down and start over? have Chick-fila train the staff on how to be friendly?
Location: Better walk if you found a parking place the first time. You won't have parking when you get back. Not really close to anything except water
Checked in at 3pm. Long line and 1 person at desk. Restrooms locked. Had to get key that you can't get because there is only one person. Room was clean. Walls paper-thin. Noise from next door all evening/night. Kids running up and down hall. Called front desk for blanket around 5. They said I could come down and get one. They were too busy. Got there and three people standing and talking. They said they had a line to the door. Sure cleared that line quicker than the line I was in earlier. Parking lot SMALL. People double parked blocking others. Not a good neighborhood. Leave car while you cruise at your own risk! Shuttle was 40 min. late taking us. Driver was friendly and picked us up on time. Do NOT think, just because you are near the beach, that you can see it from room. View of old neighborhood and parking lot. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PLACE! I DID. LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE! Shuttle is NOT free. $20 per person roundtrip. Other hotels in area are free. Save your money and go ANYWHERE BUT HERE!!!!

Posted 15-Sep-2014
at first, we thought it was a great hotel because of the view of the beach in pleasure pier.then the hotel staff never told us we were going to get credit card charged abd only explained there is no smoking and no pets. The three pool was closed until my hubby and many others complained, they opened it.the staff was rude except one. If offered a room for free i wouldn't do it.

Pleasant Hotel Needs Better Front Desk Staff

Posted 14-Sep-2014
Pros: The lobby looks warm and inviting. The room and hallways were clean.
Cons: Front desk staff needs to take customer service training--and then use it when on duty.
Location: Hotel is located off Seawall Blvd and is within walking distance of the Pleasure Pier and the beach. There are many restaurants within a few blocks.
Our first encounter at check-in with the front desk clerk, Allen, was very abrupt. He rushed in from the back after a few minutes of our waiting at the counter, pulled out some sheets of instructions to guests, and quickly ran through a list of what we couldn't do, how much we would be charged if we disobeyed the rules, where we should be parked, and told us to sign here, initial here and there, and asked for our ID's. My husband pulled the sheets of paper together and said he was going to read them first before signing and initialing anything. There was no, "Welcome, where are y'all from?" He hardly gave us eye contact and never smiled. The hotel, itself, was neat and smelled clean. However, from our balcony, we overlooked a dilapidated house, its broken down back fence and overgrown weeds, and overflowing trash cans-- not even a partial view of the beach that I expected. We will not stay at this hotel again, if for no other reason than the unpleasant encounter with the front desk clerk, Allen. He was our first impression, and first impressions count!

Close to the beach, but had view of the ugly ally

Posted 6-Sep-2014
We went two days after labor day because the rates were good. This hotel looks great on the outside and in the lobby, however, the rooms are not good. Our tub was clogged and took several minutes to drain, the breakfast was terrible, danishes were stale, coffee was cold (and we came early), eggs were runny, sausage not done. The A/C kept turning off after it reached 70. So we were back and forth turning the air on. This hotel is good for the rate we paid (off season), would not pay more for it. The trip was still great just a little disappointed in the room. Might stay here again, not sure.
