“Hilton Galveston Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Staff was very welcoming but did not think that the room as nice as Hampton Inns we have stayed in. Bathroom and entry area floors looked like they needed to be stripped and new was applied. Entire staff was very helpful though. Was disappointed that this was suppose to be a resort. The air conditioning unit was extremely noisy.

Room Tip: We had a Gulf and pool view.

The customer service and professionalism of the staff at this hotel WAY exceeds higher priced hotels on the island. The pool is kind of small and is in the parking lot but the customer service and the rooms more than make up for the pool experience. The location; next door to Landry,s Rainforest Cafe, and IHOP made it easy to walk for meals. We would definitely return!

We are Hilton honors and we are usually happy with the Hilton resorts. We have not been pleased with our most recent stays with Hilton, first the Clearwater resort and now the Galveston resort. I was in charge of taking care of a child while the child's mom was working at a business convention. Of course this involves feeding her so her mom had to tell the hotel management and restaurant management SEVERAL times that we could get food and charge it to the room. When it came time to eat we were told from every restaurant in the hotel that we could not order food without the mom here to order the food even though we explained that she was at a business convention and spoke to management about this. I have NEVER had so much trouble getting food in order to feed a child in my life! They were also very rude to the child when she tried to order some food when I was in the restroom, which was NOT appreciated. Our first night when we took our showers there was no hot water, so of course that was not pleasant. So we called the lobby to complain, and they said they would get it fixed right away...they never did. I am not happy with this hotel and I will not be back.

First trip to Galveston and probably the last. If this is an example of what Hilton has to offer from a Resort prospective I am not very impressed, and would certainly look for other property in the furture. Our room was in need of a complete overhaul. There were holes in the wall, leaking toilet (puddles of water on the floor), missing grout in the shower. Torn and Frayed carpet and missing baseboard trim. Not to mention the stale beer smell in the elevator. The room was in the tower and at a cost of $339. per night. You would probably fine a nice room at a Red Roof inn. Not worth it at all!

Loved this Hotel. Fair price for great services, great location, and great staff. This is where you should stay when visiting Galveston. Rooms are clean. Pool/bar is great, staff is great! Close proximity to all eating establishments if choosing to eat out. Right next to beach. Again, the pool/pool bar is very nice!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and comfortable, the towels huge and soft, but the staff was wonderful. From the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff - everyone was friendly and helpful. When we were leaving, one of the housekeepers asked about our stay, wished us a safe trip, and hoped that we would stay again on our next trip to Galveston.

We incurred several issues during the stay; 1. the desk chair was defective and replaced 2. 2 lamps did not work and needed new bulbs 3. The AC unit was very noisy 4, The hot water valve handle was loose and fell off. 5. The TV /cable system was intermittent and the staff had to work with the cable provider to correct the problem. I WAS IMPRESSED WITH THE MAINTENANCE STAFF'S RESPONSE AND ABILITY TO REMEDY THE PROBLEMS. THEY ARE #1
