“Stumbled upon a delightful bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2010

The Country Inn is new, but I am sure it will be a success. We had a lovely room with a balcony and sea view - spotted dolphins from there. Very comfy bed. Microwave, fridge, free wireless Internet, etc. Service was good. Location was excellent - just over the road from the beach, and in walking distance of lots of bars and restaurants. If I had one complaint it would be the use of disposable polystyrene plates and cups, and plastic cutlery, at breakfast. I have since discovered this is quite normal in mid range US hotels, but as well as not being very nice, it's incredibly wasteful and harmful to the environment.
The hotel cost us $70 plus tax - an absolute bargain. Stay here - you won't regret it. Oh, and be sure to go to Gaido's seafood restaurant (on an empty stomach) it's fab.

This was a short but nice stay. The hotel is new and the area is still recovering from Hurricane Ike, but it's a good sea wall location. We visited a bit off season so parking was no problem. It felt quite safe. Which is good because there are no safe's in the rooms and apparently nothing at the front desk. The clubs nearby make noise at night but it wasn't too loud. Nice modest breakfast served, though go early to get a table. Pleasant staff. I recommend visiting the surf shop next door.

We just got married and decided to take my life to Galveston and then to s a 7 day cruise . The hotel is brand new , clean , clean and simply a 5 star hotel. The staff is very nice, helpful , the manager dropped us to the cruise as a courtsey . The sea view was amazing from our hotel , its located right on sea wall , great location , people , and service. I will always come to this one , when I take my next cruise :)
Thanks

I highly reccomend Country Inn in Galveston very nice and helpful desk clerks, beautifully decorated close to the seawall, clean, rates better than the holiday inn and just as nice I will stay there everytime I visit Galveston for a stay. It was the best stay we almost hated to leave, but our puppy missed us.

Wife and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary and boy did we find a good one! Clean, clean, clean. King bed was deliciously comfortable and clean. Great decor. Granite bathroom counter and shower. NICE!
We were looking for a place that would be centrally located on the seawall with restaurants and shops within walking distance. We found it! Right across the beach with lots of sand, jet ski rentals, fishing jetty. We walked and ate, shopped, swam, partied and came back to our clean comfortable room. The service was excellent and super friendly.
We found a place we can vacation at over and over again.
