“bed bugs. Terrible stay.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2009

I will NEVER stay here again. There were bed bugs in my bed. The t.v.'s were old and the place was outdated and old. I suspect that some of the units have been updated, but not the one we stayed in, number 395. Small and claustrophobic- one bed room, very small and two bunk beds. Avoid this place at all costs. The only explanation for the varying reviews is that some of the units are individually owned and in a rental pool so the owners do not spend any money on the interiors of the condos. Galveston is a great place and I would go back to the island but I will find nicer accomodations.

The property itself is mediocre. There are individual units that are nice, but not all. Stay away from unit 393. Stains on walls. No spare trash bags. No dishwashing soap. Curtains torn. Burns in carpet. Neighbors noisy. Dvd player and remote control for the TV non-working. Disappointed.

We stayed here three nights. This is an older hotel and needs updating, and even though I was not impressed, my wife liked it – so there you go. PROS: (1) We had a beachfront window view (non angled view) and enjoyed sitting on balcony during early mornings and late evenings. (2) Full kitchenette is a good thing considering most other hotels charge you an extra $10.00 for a mini fridge, microwave and internet - that’s an extra $30.00 plus tax a day. (3) Separate private bedroom w/TV and living room area w/TV. CONS: (1) Laptop users – make sure your laptop is wireless “G” or you will not be able to get online from your room - most older laptops are wireless "B". (2) A/C unit is a little loud and when it came on, it made everything vibrate. (3) If you have more than two adults in your party - you will be cramped for space – felt fine for just the two of us. (4) Older hotel and could stand a fresh coat of paint and minor updating. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again, but for my next weekend getaway, I will splurge a little more on $$ and get a nicer hotel.

We booked a condo here sort of at the last minute to go to a beach wedding. The condo was fine for the four of us since we weren't spending much time in the room. A family might get a bit clausterphobic if it ran into too many rainy days since the place is small. But every condo has a view of the gulf from a balcony; the bathroom was clean and stocked with enough towels( and the office was happy to provide more on request), and the air-conditioner worked great for this woman with hot flashes. They had laundry facilities, pools and the place is just across the street from the beach.

This was our first family vacation and we were a little scared to go to Galveston since the Hurricane. Casa Del Mar was beautiful....we had a great room, the staff was very nice. We walked across to the beach every day and had a great time. We were close to everything...Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn....we will go back and stay here again.

Nice hotel-very clean. Furnishings were nice. Had a fully equipped kitchen--except no dishcloths. People at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. We like to sit on the balcony at night. We had a good view--but...someone in a balcony near us, was smoking--and it didn't smell like anything you could legally smoke. Had to smell this 2 nights in a row. So I really don't know if we'll come back.

The reviews of this place typify one of the occasional big mysteries of Tripadvisor--the hotel gets a high rating, but when you actually experience it, you're left scratching your head, asking yourself"HUH???"

The web site makes it look lovely. Ocean view from all rooms. Yeah...right!! Our "ocean view" balcony had a faraway view of the ocean, was right on 61st street, wtih a view primarily of the shut down McDonald's. The traffic was noisy. Don't envision a peaceful sea scene. Perhaps the buildings facing the other way had a more attractive view.

our condo itself was small and kind of cute, though i cant imagine more than two people fitting itn it comfortabley, even with the bunk beds. The bedroom was ok but depressing-- the window faced a dark interior corridor.
Photos on the website show an opend courtyard, which is actually the empty parking lot, which was full when we visited.
T front desk staff were fantastic very helpful an peasant.
The pools looked nice, though we did not used them.

If you are going to Galveston, which I'm glad to report is up and running, do yourelf a favor and go to Shrimp and Stuff--GREAT food and atmosphere. LOVED this place. A bit off the beatedn path, but sooo worth it!
DO NOT go to --i think it is called a Fish's Tale, on the main drag opposite the Flagship Hotel. Ugh. What a tourist trip, with some the rudest help I've encountered everywhere--so different from the usual Texan hospitality and sincerity. One waitress loudly berated a kind and helpful waiter in front of guests. The "hostess" who placed us on the upstaris deck obviusy hated her job and people. The crabcakes can best be described as clumps of buttered bread crumbs.

The location of hotel--across street from beach. The area reminded me of Nice on the French Riviera, with the seawall and colorful flags. But i think i'd pick a locatin farther down the road next time--(toward the lower numbered streets) to be closer to the Strand area--at the galvez hotel end.
