Call this hotel a "gem in the rough". Call it a gem because is a great hotel that is very reasonably priced for the area, clean, comfortable, and has a very pleasant staff. Call it in the rough because the area around the refineries is not pleasing to they eye! But... once you get in the doors and you realize that you are paying half the price or less of what you would be paying at one of the properties closer to the cruise terminals... and you have a great hotel that you can get rested up in for the embarkation process the next day... you are going to be very happy!
We stayed three nights. The room was very comfortable. All three mornings there was no orange juice. The last morning there were no hot cups for coffee. When we wanted to do laundry they had no quarters. The staff made a reservation for me at another Best Western motel but when I arrived that motel they had no record of it.
Everyone was very friendly and our rooms were very nice. We even got our rooms for an extra night with no problems whatsoever. I would definitely tell my friends about this hotel and will stay here again if in the area.
Texas City’s tallest structures illuminate the night sky along Galveston Bay, but they’re not glittering condos or office towers. The Texas City Industrial Complex is one of the nation’s largest oil refining centers. The refineries are a source of pride and petrodollars for the community and region at large. Texas City is among the last mainland stops on the route to Galveston Island. Nearby, the 5-mile Texas City Dike is a haven for fishers.
