My family and I were in Galveston for the 4th of July and were lucky to get rooms at this nice facility. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Because of the kitchen, we were able to cook breakfast each day and keep our drinks and food cold. The pool was clean and well maintained. The owner was very nice and very helpful! We enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: A room away from the outside door would be the best.

My husband and I stayed here three nights. We had all of the comforts of home. A very nice kitchenette with a full sized refrigerator, a closet in the entry, nice sized living room area that included a sofa bed and recliner, a very comfortable bedroom that included a second closet. All of the staff was very accommodating. They were friendly, efficient, and knowledgable of the City. We've stayed at other hotels in the area, i.e..The San Luis but this was much nicer. we will definitely stay here again!!!!

My husband and I stay in hotels more than we are home and we have found that management is the key to the experience at each place. We highly recommend this hotel in the Galveston area. Management and staff care about their guests and will go to great lengths to provide what is necessary to make your stay what it needs to be. If we are ever back in this area, we won't hesitate to book a room at 808 61st

Room Tip: Top floor is always best we think

We had a large group going on a cruise (including some elderly relatives) so we needed a reasonably priced hotel to stay at before our cruise. We didn't need a place close to the beach nor did we want to pay the higher prices. This was a good choice. This hotel was right off the highway as we drove in from Houston- very easy to find.

We went to the beach for dinner and it took us less than 10 minutes to get to the strand. Moody Gardens was even closer.

Within walking distance of the hotel there were loads of shops (like Target) and fast food places. So anyone that wanted to go shopping for last minute supplies or even grab a snack could easily walk.

This is considered an "extended stay" hotel so there is no breakfast provided but there was free coffee both in the room and down stairs in the lobby area. Plus there was a full kitchen in each room so you could bring supplies for meals- or walk across the street to buy supplies.

It was clean and the staff was quite helpful.

Room Tip: I did hear motorcycles revving out by the traffic light- so if you're a light sleeper ask for a...

Decided to stay here for a couple of nights whilst in Galveston, but unfortunately due to the Oil Spill in the Bay the previous week the hotel was busy and was unable as a Platinum member to get an upgrade, the young lady informed me that the Big Corporations had rented all the rooms.
That aside the Hotel was not the cleanest in the public areas I have been in and the Candlewood Shop had very little in it. The fitness room was adequate, but the laundry room was quite small.
I am a regular Candlewood suite user and love them, but guess I got this one at a bad time. Loved Galveston as a Town and enjoyed visiting the attractions and riding down by the beach front. The hotel is in a nice quiet area so nice and peaceful for sleeping.
