“Extremely Pleased with Interval Exchange”
Reviewed 8 June 2010

I traded the guest side of my timeshare and was upgraded to an Elite one bedroom, gulf front balcony. The unit is very nicely decorated and clean. Had issues with the toilet not flushing, but maintenance fixed the problem within 10 minutes! Didn't really use pool area because I went for the beach, but everyone seemed to enjoy. Workout room was okay. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. I accidently left a load of clothes in the dryer when I checked out and they helfd them for (live in Houston). For the people that like to complain (and I witnessed an old crank woman complaining at check-out), get a life. This place is a reallly good find on a beach in Galveston that is groomed everyday! Only recommendations are - provide some gas grills and change the mattress (it's springy).

We exchanged some points to stay at this resort for a week. Overall, we liked it. The accomodations were nice and the staff was very helpful and responsive. I would stay again. Galveston is a cute island - nice for a relaxing vacation.

We liked: The ocean view, heated pool, friendly/helpful staff, size and layout of unit, nice location
We didn't like: the Galveston beach is gross (not the hotel's fault), uncloggable bathroom sink, similar to another review - we had to have them change the shower curtain, very slow dryer

It is a good idea to run the dishes in the dishwasher first.

We stayed in unit E34B. A little cramped for 4 people, but for as little time as we spent in the condo it was fine. Staff was extremely pleasant. Pool area and beach were clean and nice for the kids. We were only 3-4 miles from the main attractions on the island. We went off season and did not have to deal with any crowds. The water park was only open on the weekends which was unfortunate. We did Moody Gardens and spent $150 on tickets and found that it was not worth the money at all. Overall, we would definitely go back to Escapes in Galveston!

This is a great place to stay for a regional getaway. It's only real limitation is the fact that it's in Galveston and not a higher quality beach location. But, since Galveston has limited beach-front accommodations, this is one of the best the area has to offer. Everything was clean and tastefully decorated and it looks like all rooms offer a beach view. The pool is heated which was nice since a few days of our stay were cooler. We will definitely plan on staying here again.

I would highly recommend staying here. The room had everything we needed, it's like your own little apartment. We were going to stay at the San Luis but it much more expensive and didn't have all the amenities that this place had. I loved the way the rooms were nicely decorated and clean. If we ever go back to galveston, we will stay here again.

We stayed for a week in February (20 thru 25) and had a great time. Room was comfortable, clean, had plenty of appliances, utensils, and was on south side of building looking directly toward gulf. Staff was very helpful in providing info on dining, attractions, and was quick to respond to minor maintenance issue. Bed was comfortable, furnishings were in excellent condition, and balcony was large and positioned for great views but was protected from the wind. Location was great in that it was far enough from main drag to minimize traffic but close enough for quick drive to main city. We loved the facility and will use it in the future when we return.

Reviewed 21 February 2010

We stayed here in Feb 2010 for two nights and were quite dissappointed. First, I paid on average $150/night (including tax) for a one-bedroom standard suite off-season. The primary reason I booked here was its proximity to the beach, and its gulf-view balconies. Well, the balcony door was broken so we counldn't use it until mid-way through our second day. The place is more like an apartment than a hotel. You have to clean up after yourself before you check out (i.e. take off the linens and put them next to the beds; run the dishwasher, etc.) or else you could be charged an "excessive cleaning fee". The check-in office is extremely hard to find after hours and if you check-in after 5pm you have to get your room key from this safety-deposit box, which is really hard to find in the dark. We were fortunate to find the security guard, who helped us find it. The other negative is that the hotel is away from all the restaurants and attractions. We had to drive 15 minutes to get to Mosquito Cafe for a coffee in the morning. The "hotel" does not have a restaurant or any restaurants within a walking distance. Overall, this place was really expensive for what you get, and I will never stay here again.
