The condo has a view of the ocean - just happens to be across a 4 lane, busy roadway - and on ground level. It was nicely furnished but hardly luxurious. I found it quite dark, both in natural light and bulb wattage. Huge closet was nice. One roll of tp seemed stingy for a 5 nite stay. (Could have contacted owner for more but really?) Metal mesh chairs on patio were covered with mysterious black greasy substance we couldn't wash off. Overall, it was a decent place, just not what we expected based on the glowing reviews we read before booking.
As we all know, hotel prices go up in Galveston significantly in the summer and even more on summer weekends. I visit Galveston every year with my young son, and every year hate that I am always stuck in a small, potentially unsafe, hotel just because I was trying to find the most reasonable price for a small vacation. I came across this condo listing and Nam was so very nice and helpful through the entire process. We communicated through Trip Advisor message, email, phone, and text. She was very quick to respond to whatever questions I had. The booking process was smooth and easy, and she gave fantastic instructions as far as directions to get there, getting into the condo, and checking out.
The condo was great and can't say enough good things about it. My son had room to run around and the view of the water was fantastic. Everything was stocked with the basics and all I had to do was run to the grocery store to pick up 2 days worth of groceries and snacks. The surroundings were quiet and fit for a family setting. The pool was amazing and the convenience of a short walk across the road to the beach made it that much more enticing. I would recommend this place to anyone, and plan to stay again next year!
This condos was really nice. Our basic needs was met. The lighting in the condo was poor. The mattress pad had stains on it. Contractors parked construction junk right in front of the condo for the week to work on the front of building . It was very noisy. Street traffic was really noisy. One of the neighbors was playing a bass stereo really really loud. One worker and his children were using or patio to eat and play games. This condo is not quiet. The pools were wonderful and so was the gym.
