Great location since its located right across the street from the beach. Had a very nice room located on the 6th floor. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Kids loved the pool area and would stay there again.

Stayed: July 2012, travelled with family

My two children and I just stayed here and had a great time. Loved the pool and the swim up bar where I got kids ciegin daiquiris for $4. Pool staff was excellent. One night we ordered room service because I was sick and I ordered the kids dessert. Room service offered to bring up dessert 30 minutes after dinner so it wouldn't melt. There was a free balloon artist one day at the pool. The bed and pillows were nice and comfy. Highly recommend. My only complaint was there were smoking rooms on the same floor but I only smelled that when I was at the end of the hall getting ice. Didn't waft into our room at all. Just a small complaint really but figured I'd bring it up.

My boyfriend & I celebrated our 1yr anniversary @ this resort we had a great time & loved every minute of our time there. Once we left I realized that I had left my very expensive anniversary gift there. I was devastated & cried the whole night. My boyfriend had faith in the quality of the staff there & assured me that everything would be ok. The next day he called the hotel they said they found my watch & would be happy to ship it to me! I was very happy & relieved that the staff was honest & friendly. I thought I would never see my watch again but the resort staffed proved me wrong! Thank you Holiday Inn Resort Galveston staff your honesty ROCKS!!!

What a joke! Like a bad dream! First we get put into a smoking room that we did not ask for, then when they try to put us into a non smoking room they don't have any so they put us into a conference room that is a piece of crap! Our balcony overlooked the roof.. Couldn't even see the ocean! Then when we went to dinner at the restaurant the waiter didnt take our drink order for 15 mins, forgot our children's drinks, forgot our appetizer, forgot my husbands drink order, took an hour to get our food, and never refilled our drinks!

I stayed for a conference that was being held at the Convention Center. The hotel was within walking distance which was very nice. Location of the hotel was very good! I was on the 7th floor and had a small balcony with a beautiful ocean view. I didn't know what to expect with the lobby decor but the room decor was nice. The staff was overly welcoming which was impressive. The negative thing was the elevator. Apparently there was only ONE elevator that worked and there was no air. So it got crowded and sticky. I searches and searched for water bottles but they were out in their little store and also in the vending machines. I went to the hotel Restauant and they were nice to give me ice water. Overall it was a decent experience but I probably wouldn't stay here on a family vacation.

Elevators to you Americans.
Definately overdue for replacement, you will make friends waiting for the lifts: there are only two in the building and these were frequently out-of-order.
Likewise the doors to the rooms require a strong shoulder charge or kick to open.
Good location but expensive (I paid over $300 per night average during June).
Needs demolishing and rebuilding.

Room Tip: Better choose a high floor away from the pool.

We stayed at this hotel off season, so got a great deal. The staff was wonderful and quick to respond to any request. It was clean and located on the beach. The best part was the shuttle brought us to everything we wanted to do while on the island. I was 8 months pregnant at the time, so it was nice not having to stress about driving and parking! I don't know that I would pay full price for this hotel, but I would for sure take another off season deal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a good view.
