“Amazing Place to Stay”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This place is really fabulous. Beautiful (inside and out), clean and the staff is amazing. They are friendly, helpful and always have a smile. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The view, with the beach directly across the street, was gorgeous. AND every room has a direct view. Great, great, great place to stay. The bed and pillows are absolutely heaven to sleep on.
The only downside is that their wi fi does NOT work but we weren't there to stay on a computer.

They have a restaurant called the Jetty in the Holiday Inn that was a bit pricey so we did not eat there. There is also a lounge called B Jiggers that we did not go in but did get a drink from. It was pricey and watered down.

Room Tip: We decided next time we went that we wanted a room over the pool area. Noise is not a factor when y...

A very nice room overlooking the beach across the street which is the norm for most of Galveston. Clean room with a standard narrow balcony. The beds were very nice with clean bedding. Everything worked in the room. The Wifi signal was on the weak side. My iPad tended to drop it quite regularly when I was trying to use it in the room. If a hotel is going to advertise Wifi as an amenity to sway my business, then the Wifi needs to be of good quality. The room staff does a very good job on making sure the rooms are clean and inviting. The bathroom needs some work from the long term maintenance crew. It is showing it's age as is much of the hotel. I'm sure it's tough with sand and water being dragged into the hotel on a continuous basis not to mention the salt air on everything. Some of the common areas have definitely seen their use over the years.

The pool got lots of use by hotel customers even though the water was not crystal clear. It had this cloudy appearance to it. Might be a short term issue that the hotel staff is attacking right now.

Cannot speak highly enough about the staff overall. We met numerous folks about the hotel and every one of them was friendly and had a smile. Thank you for that Holiday Inn Resort!

Would I stay at this hotel again while in Galveston. Sure I would. The minor issues do not outweigh the good qualities of the place.

Pros: Nice room, comfy beds, mini frig, safe, good sized balcony with two chairs, pool, great breakfast in restaurant, B Jiggers nightclub in lobby, walk to Landry's or Rainforest Cafe 1 block away. Tshirt shop right next door. Good sized parking lot. Walk across Seawall Blvd. to beach.
Cons: Bathroom is tiny and not well ventilated. There is an additional vanity/mirror area outside of bathroom which helped a great deal. Price is high but all the nice hotels on the Seawall are.

Room Tip: Upper Floors have better views. Our view on 4th Floor was of the roof of the adjoining building whi...

Was pretty worried at first hearing some mixed reviews on here. The hotels here in Galveston fill up quickly so book early. The Holiday Inn Resort was a really nice place to hang in Galveston for a few days. The bed was comfortable,AC was great,room and bath all clean and everything worked. Even the door to the small patio locked and closed unlike other beach view hotels we have been to before. The price is a little higher than what it should be compared to other beach towns. We were in room #822 and it was just what we needed for a pleasant rest. Staff we encountered were all kind and no hitches. Plenty of parking behind the building and a nice size pool. If we do decide to got to Galveston again this place would be in the running for a follow up visit for sure. Over all we were happy with this place and would recommend it to other friends and family members.

Room Tip: The higher floors offer the best views of the ocean.

I stayed here with my daughters to enjoy the ocean, just having moved from Alaska. The room was nice, clean, we were treated well upon check-in, and it was quiet. However, the next morning, we were checking out, and a Sysco 18-wheeler smashed the trunk of my malibu! It was witnessed by the maintenance man who commented to me that he was lucky it didn't get his car parked next to mine! Police came out, report filed, Sysco said his trucker was too busy to come back to the hotel. Anyway, during the claim process, the manager, Mr. House wouldn't return my insurance company's phone calls, so I ended up paying $500 deductible for the claim, Sysco got off scot-free, and Mr. House, you are a small coward!!

The rooms were clean and the beds were soft. Had a wonderful view of the ocean and enjoyed the pool. Front desk personal was friendly. It was close to a lot of attractions so you didn't have to drive to far to get to them. It was in walking distance of entertainment and food places. Really enjoyed staying there.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view of the ocean
