The location of this hotel probably couldn't be better. The staff was warm and friendly. The room was large and clean. The beds were comfortable and the shower was great. Breakfast was good and better than some breakfasts of Choice Hotels we've stayed in. Keeping in mind that we're from Arizona and don't have a lot of coastline (none), the view was spectacular. Each room has a balcony and the view of the Gulf was incredible. Stay here again? Absolutely.

We stayed in the King Suite. Balcony view was excellent. (All rooms have balconies. A big +) It's an older hotel but was clean enough and staff was friendly. Breakfast wasn't "blow your mind spectacular" but for an included breakfast, it wasn't entirely bad. Decent enough selection. Biscuits, cereal, fruit, yogurt, Sausage gravy, toast, muffins, a waffle station... Your average continental breakfast. Pool was a little small and the hot tub had been filled in with concrete. :(
Overall, a good experience and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, but avoid rooms facing the west side if you want a nice view of the gulf...

We stayed at the Quality Inn for several days as part of a student-musician group and found it to be a good choice. Our room definitely had some budget qualities -- e.g., the air conditioner took some getting used to because it made a loud noise when cycling on or off; our room didn't have a safe; the view from our room (2nd floor, even-numbered) was of parking lots and traffic with a little slice of ocean. However, it was quite clean and comfortable, and aside from the air conditioner I didn't notice any noise issues, even though the hotel was full over the weekend we were there. The breakfast was typical of similar hotels, not gourmet but fine; I ate a lot of waffles and yogurt. The service we received was excellent. We were a fairly large group, and made a fairly large number of requests (storage of instruments, adjoining rooms, extra towels, extra keys, etc.), and the hotel staff consistently responded to our requests very cheerfully and competently. The indoor pool is small and not particularly inviting, but guests are allowed to use the very pleasant outdoor swimming pool at the sister property next door, which our students enjoyed very much. The location is quite urban, along the "strip" of Sea Wall Boulevard, which, while not peaceful or especially scenic, was close to all kinds of restaurants and attractions, as well as a relatively wide stretch of beach just across the street. For an urban, budget beach vacation, this hotel provided solid value.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms have a much less attractive view than odd numbered rooms. Higher rooms have a b...

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel with a beachview and this it it. It's in a great location and our room on the 5th floor had a great view og the beach and the swimming pool at the hotel next door. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast bar was ok but not great. We go to Galveston alot for the price this the best place we have found. Will go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 4th or 5th floor facing the east.

When I go down to the beach for a few days, I don't iike surprises when it comes to staying in a hotel I've never stayed at before. Quality Inn is my "go to" tried and true hotel. Always a perfect stay. I always choose a room on the top floor as close to the front of the hotel as possible, for the best view of the ocean. Top floor is always quiet too. Bed is always comfy. Service at the front desk is always top notch. Never disappointed!

The above photo is deceptive and should be removed. The outdoor pool seen in the photo belongs to the hotel next door, Beachfront Palms. The pool at Quality Inn is indoors, small and not at all inviting looking. The hotel is reasonably priced, basic and fine for the price if all you are looking for is a place to sleep and aesthetics are not important. The view from your balcony of the even numbered rooms is of the parking lots and backs of McDonalds and Popeyes and the noise discourages one from sitting out there. From the balcony of the odd numbered rooms you have a nice view of the pool next door (the one depicted in the photo) and sitting out there is tolerable if you can control your jealousy. The rooms at the front of the hotel may have a partial ocean view but I can't say as we were in the back. Though the hotel did not SEEM full, we were told there was nothing available on the odd numbered side near the front nor any rooms on floors higher than the third floor (there are 5 floors). Air conditioner was noisy when cycling...better when left on "constant fan" setting than having it go on and off. Breakfast was nothing special but okay. Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Wifi is free but for the most part didn't work. We were able to connect to the network from the front lobby/breakfast room but most of the time could not get on from our room...guess you get what you pay for. Overall we had no real complaints and would say it was okay for budget minded travelers.

Room Tip: Best would be odd numbered room on high floor.

The photo of the pool next door is from an outdoor pool that our guests are free to use. We actually have access for our guests to both the indoor heated pool, and the outdoor pool, so the photo is not at all deceptive. I can't think of many hotels that have access to both for their guests. We are happy to put guests in areas where they prefer to be, but thee rooms have to be vacant to do that, and sometimes it just isn't possible. This hotel is very popular and has a great location, and as a result, we run full almost every weekend of the year, and annually we do about 82% for the year as a whole. Sometimes it doesn't look busy because guests are at the beach or one of the other island venues. I am sorry we didn't get you what you wanted, but please feel free to ask for me next time, and I would be happy to do what I can to get you on the side you want. We appreciate your comments. Best Regards, James Marx, GM

Hello:

I appreciate the fact that you gave me a chance to speak to you before you checked out. If more guests gave us that chance, they would find that they will be happily surprised. We hate it when guests leave unhappy, because it means we failed twice...first allowing the issue to have happened in the first time, and then second, not handling it to the guest's satisfaction. We want happy guests that will stay more than once, and we work hard towards that end. The problem you had should have been caught, and I have re-trained the laundry attendants to be more careful. I really enjoyed speaking to you despite the circumstances, and I ma very happy you want to give us another chance.

Best Regards,
James Marx, Manager
