Beachtree Motel
Ranked #47 of 51 Hotels in Galveston
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We stayed here two nights in late March 2014. Not on or across but close to beach, though property is generally unkempt and poorly maintained. Small room was cramped with larger bed. Filthy carpeting. Loose or broken bathroom fixtures. No mirror over sink for shaving or hair care. Noisy AC unit. Dangerously slippery painted step from room to outdoors, especially during rain or in early morning when dew laden. Meager "breakfast" of tiny roll(s) and coffee, which must be picked up in the morning from small shelf in tiny front office area. Bed clean and fairly comfortable. Hot water okay. Property a.k.a. Seaside Motel, though sign in front says Beachtree. Not worth the price paid. Would not recommend to anyone, unless desperate with money to waste. Online photo belies reality of the property.

Beware of the mold in the room. Electric space heaters hanging off the wall, doors the are not shut all the way and broken windows. TV did not work bad was defiantly worth the 236 they charged me for 2 nights I'm calling the bank on this one. They told me I had to park somewheres else because they don't hVe enough parking

Just by looking at the exterior u can imagine how disgusting it is. I never would have chosen this place but my husband made the reservation on line and the way they pictured it was different. The rooms are disgusting. the non smoking smelled like nothing but smoke, the restroom smelled like sewer, the shower and toilet were from the 1960s with mold every where , the beds and sheets were as filthy as could be, I itched all night long. This place should be shut down by an inspector. Or call the hotel impossible on them so they can do a make over to this whole rat hole....please do not stay here if you want a good night sleep. I definitely do NOT ecommend.

I checked in with me and my children and immediately wanted to check out!!!! Upon check-in they gave me a key for my room and a remote control??? Get upstairs to my room and realize the bathroom is from the 1920s and hasn't been updated nor clean realize they put me beside a prostitutes room and the baby that was screaming at three in the morning it's pretty bad when your three-year-old says can we go home upon checking out I Handom the key and they begin to ask me for the remote control and make me go back upstairs to return it to them i'm like really am seven months pregnant can't just got to get your damn self later on that evening come to find out my credit card information I gave them have been compromised thinking it was more than likely them because it was only place I use my credit card at that time would never recommend this place nobody. It's pretty bad when you call Galveston PD and tell them that you think they might be the ones that did it and they said we will tell you that place is no good

This place is a cesspool. I've never stayed in such a filthy, stinking motel. The heater is an electric space heater hanging on the wall, the sheets had cigarette burns, and the carpet was so dirty that I never took my shoes off. I was seriously worried that I would bring bugs back to my home.

This little motel is close to the ocean but inside the room it is filthy I'm not too picky as I've stayed in hostels and rough motels but by far this has to be the most run down. The walls are dirty, the shower drain smelled like sewer. We paid 77 and it felt like I was staying in Ethiopia
