TownePlace Suites by Marriott Galveston Island

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 January 2014

We stayed in this hotel because we thought we would have a great view of the ocean. Well, we had a view, but not a great one. If you want a view of the ocean, stay in the Courtyard Marriott which is in front of this hotel. This hotel is very modern and has some great amenities you don't get in the Courtyard Marriott.

There was one thing the staff may want to consider - the room doors close VERY hard and loudly. They may want to consider adjusting doors so they will close more softly for a better customer experience.

Thank you for the great review. Yes some of the doors do tend to be loud. We appreciate your comment and will definitely give the doors some attention.

We stayed here the night before our cruise (5 adults) in a two bedroom suite. 2 queen beds with separate bathrooms and a pull out couch in the living area. The room was great, fairly quiet and comfortable. The only complaint would be the front desk wasn't particularly friendly but we would definitely stay here again.

This was our first stay at this hotel and it was okay. We liked our room and the view, and the property was fine. Service there was so-so. If staying there again I would take the trouble to ask for maid service. Breakfast was ok but not great. Carpet was worn for the (young) age of the hotel, but other things were ok. Staff members were pleasant.

Yes, we have had a lot of comments in regards to the carpet wearing down a lot quicker than it should. Being that we are an "extended stay" designed hotel we typically only do a full refresh on rooms every 7 days, but the next time you stay feel free just to put a request for full service daily at the desk and our staff will be happy to execute your request. You can even request a certain time you would like service done by. Thanks for the review. We sure do appreciate it and look forward to you staying next time you are in town.

I had a great stay here during a 2-week period while working nearby. I found it to be just what I needed. It was quiet, convenient, clean and the staff was very friendly. I had a fridge and microwave so I did not have a need to partake of breakfast, which was the busiest place in the hotel, except to grab the occasional yogurt. I used the laundry and gym and found them adequate.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the (west) other side of the parking lot for a view of something other than your c...

Thank you for the review and we are so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. You are quite right, the breakfast can be rather busy at times. The trick is to get there right after it opens. Most of our guests prefer to sleep in a little so typically rush hour is near the end.

Stayed here at the end of summer when my AC went out, gotta love that Galveston August heat!! I love this place, the staff is so nice and friendly, it is clean and well maintained. Brand new property away from all the hustle and bustle of Galveston. Very quiet even when full. Definitely will be coming back. Thank you guys so much!!

It's quite interesting when you arrive at a place with a full parking lot and much to your surprise its like there is nobody home when you get inside. Thanks for the review and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

We were taking a cruise out of Galveston. This hotel is clean and had a nice, comfortable room. Breakfast was your typical continental with some additions.

We were pleased to find out that the hotel offers a free shuttle to the port for our cruise, and they allow you to leave your car here while you are on the cruise. This is a huge savings and very convenient. We will come here again.

Lovely room, lovely view, lovely pool...gorgeous setting.
Thank you. Looking out over the Gulf of Mexico is pretty special, and to share with my family in such a nice hotel was even better. Lovely walk along the promenade and down to the beach just across the road, plenty of restaurants locally too.
