Reviewed 4 April 2014

With the name of Howard Johnson, we expected a better room. The room looked nasty. The tile floor in the entry way and bathroom were slippery, probably from cleaning the floor with the wrong kind of cleaner. We were going to take a shower before we went to get aboard our cruise ship, but the bathroom looked dirty. Like it could use a real good scrubbing. So, we waited until we got on the cruise ship to take a shower. We drove 10 1/2 hours to get there, so we could get a good nights rest and get cleaned up before going on the cruise. And we could not get cleaned up or rest.

Room was clean and bed comfortable. This is not a Hampton Inn or Fairfield Inn, but was a good value at the Hotwire Price of $65 including tax and fee and for a Friday night was less than half the price of a Hampton or Fairfield.. Rooms are not that sound proof so would not recommend for a light sleeper. Included a microwave and small refrigerator. Location was about 10 minutes from the seawall. Coffee was good and reception person was VERY pleasant and helpful.

Promised/paid for roll-away bed, but they didn't deliver. My adult son had to sleep on the floor in a sleeping bag. Maintenance needs work. The phone in the room didn't work. The bed linens were stained, burned, and torn. We had a view of marsh/train tracks. The AC was very loud. The beds were very hard. It was pretty much what I expected from one of the cheapest hotels in Galveston. That said, we didn't want to spend a lot on the hotel room so that we had more money for our vacation. They are one of the few Galveston hotels that allow five people in a room, just be prepared to make sacrifices for it.
