“Take your money elsewhere”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

Do Not recommend this motel......the concrete on the exterior of the building is crumbling. The rooms are dorm rooms. Roaches in the bathroom!!
No coffee pots or microwaves in the room. Towels are handtowels. Staff was the only good part.
Will spend more money and go to a nicer Hotel.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else that is roach free.

Stayed here night before cruise because it was less expensive than similar motels on Galveston. Remodeled, basic rooms have nice colors with dorm like furniture, vinyl flooring due to beaches. Very small, plastic molded ,corner shower had stained/dirty looking floor and has shower head behind you by the curtain? strange. A/C and TV worked fine. Basic bathroom was functional; towels are scratchy/thin. Beds are tolerable but basically stiff slabs on a platform (no box springs); basic pillows were ok. Works for a cheap, one night stay but not much more. There's no place to eat or get gas close by. Rooms cost less but I'd rather stay elsewhere in Galveston next time. I agree with many of the other reviews...you get what you pay for.
Pros: Less expensive, no smelly carpet, short drive to Cruise Terminal, pool looks decent, good A/C and TV (I think it was flat screen (dont recall)). Pets allowed.

Cons: No mini fridge, coffee pot, or hair dryer. Hard beds, unusual tiny shower stall, some outside maintenance needed; Ice machines all the way in front next to office. WiFi not free.

Room Tip: There's nothing nearby/within walking distance to eat; you'll have to drive 1 exit south, tu...

Quick weekend trip - we were looking for a cheap stay. This property outdid themselves. We even got a "is everything ok - is there anything you need" call about an hour after we got there. Pet friendly too!! Clean. The staff - front desk to cleaning crew - were all awesome, friendly, and helpful. The rooms are small and there are no "extras" but Great Stay for the money. Would definetly recommend this hotel.

The room doesn't look like the image online at all. The rooms have been remodeled. I love the laminate floors. The IKEA furniture made it feel like a dormitory. The shower was like the one on our cruise ship and there were gnats and mosquitoes.
We had no fridge or microwave! They have a microwave in the lobby...eww!
Never again!
It's next door to a warehouse supply.

After dragging all of our luggage up the stairs, we opened our first room to find the bed unmade. We went back down and got another room because ..gross. The rooms are pretty small. No fridge, no microwave, no coffee pot, and very tiny towels. The shower cleanliness was less than desirable as well. The wi-fi is advertised, but it says nowhere it costs $2.99 per day. The only good part of this hotel was the fairly polite staff at the front when we arrived. We'll definitely pay the extra $100 to stay at Super 8 next time.

We tried to check in here in June 2012 but finally gave up after more than 30 minutes. The poor desk clerk was doing her best, but the credit card machine was not working, and it was impossible to hear her throught the bullet-proof glass in the night check-in area due to the very loud ice machines in the room. The price was okay but not great, and that combined with the disfunctional check-in process made us eventually give up and go elsewhere. This is the type of place you wind up rather than plan to stay.
