4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

For the price I would rate my stay as a 9 out of 10. The rooms wete clean, the appliances worked, and the beds were comfortable. I would gladly stay at Howard Johnson in Galveston again. The only bad thing I noticed was cigarette burns on one of the bed spreads.

Outside of the hotel needs a bit of updating, but the staff was friendly and the room was really clean. Not a bad value at all.

I was visiting Galveston with my four kids. This motel was the right price. It is a short drive from the beach. Our check in time was 2 pm. When we arrived at 1:45 pm, I was told our room wasn't ready and that they would need a few hours. I said, that my check in is for 2. He replied, "That I was early." I let him know that I would wait 15 minutes, but not several hours. They gave me a room on time; a smoking room. It was stinky, dark, disappointing. Thankfully I had wonderful sunshine and sand those couple of days.
