    « Ocean Perfection-Look no further!!! »

    This is without a doubt our favorite hotel on the island!!! Always extremely affordable(except of course on spring break). The rooms are spotless!!! The views are picture perfect from every room. No sand in the car because the beach is literally steps away! The pool is clean and inviting. Wonderful breakfast that is included and parking is included as well. The staff, especially Jake and Canyon are rockstars and will do anything to help improve your stay! Thank you!

    We loved our room and the stay was very nice. The front desk staff were very helpful in giving us suggestion's as to what to do during our stay. I was disappointed that we had to lug our bags next door and pay a fee to be transported to the cruise terminal witch wasn't very far at all for them to drive us to.They should have offered this to us free of charge as well as offer door to door service as other known Hotel's do. This was a very cheapy thing to do to their guests.

    Hotel was clean, rooms are large with an ocean view, check in was easy and friendly, location is great and somewhat out of all the congestion, easy to park. Overall a good experience and a place I would stay again with my family.

    « Usually a great place - not this time! »

    We have stayed at another hotel in Galveston for years. After a stay at this Best Western Plus last month, we thought we had found a new place. However, this time left much to be desired. We had made our reservation for May 12 on February 16, and we are rewards club members. When we arrived (around 5 p.m.), we were assigned a room on the first floor, which has no view. We asked for a room on a higher floor but were told they were sold out. We went to our first-floor room, and the a/c did not work. Plus, the

    We were in Galveston for a couple days on the tail end to our trip to Houston. Being our first time to Galveston we didn't know hotels so we booked what we thought would be good, it was inexpensive but the name familiar...NOT GOOD! We checkes out and came to Best Western Suites and WE WERE NOT disappointed!!! The beds were so comfortable, the staff amazing, hotel super clean and every room is Ocean front! Thank you it was an amazing stay!

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    My family loved our 1 night stay at this hotel. The staff was so friendly and you could tell they went above and beyond. My kids were given little gift bags with chips inside them and that completely made their night, it was so sweet! The room was HUGE!! We couldn't believe how big it was and even the balcony seemed bigger than we imagined. Hotel was spotless. We loved our view from the balcony, we actually watched a pack of dolphins swim around in the morning and it was the highlight of our trip. We went on a cruise and parked/rode the shuttle next door at the other Best Western for $50, what a great deal! I wish beach access was easier than crossing lanes of traffic but no matter where you stay in Galveston that is just how it is. I am definitely going to stay here again and refer all my friends and family to do the same!

    « Great getaway SUPERB STAFF »

    I went down with my son for the Tall Ship festival and decided to try this hotel. I typically stay at Hiltons, but felt like a change. What a surprise! From the moment we arrived until we departed two days later, the service was impeccable and more importantly, so kind to my son, who has autism. Everybody was so friendly, even if they has to hear him say "Hi!" a hundred times, they said hi back, The room was immaculate and the balcony opened up to look over the water. I don't understand the negative comments I have read. The breakfast was bountiful and fresh. If you didn't care for the coffee you made in the room, you could scoot downstairs and get a fresh good cup 24/7. Location was good, although you can't really swim directly across the street as there are only rocks there. But no matter, it is a great place.

    « A welcomed sight »

    After a nice drive down from Dallas to Galveston. We were ready to eat then relax before leaving the next day on a seven day cruise. No complaints at all the rooms were nice and clean. The property looked to be in great shape. We had a very good nights sleep. And in the morning a good breakfast. This hotel does offer cruise ship parking. Also if you are lucky to get a southern facing room you will be looking at the gulf from your Balcony.

    We have no complaints! Very pleased with our stay here. The facility was spotless,the rooms are very spacious and have an ocean front balcony. Free breakfast. Coffee and Tea in the lobby around the clock. The staff was wonderful. Thank you,to the greatest desk clerk ever,Canyon went above and beyond with customer service. She guided us to the best locations to visit,sites to see and some of the best food we have ever eaten! My husband and I actually made it a point to stop and chat with her every chance we got,she was a pleasure to see each day. Thanks Canyon for making our first visit to Galveston Island a great memory!

    « Great ocean view »

    Chose this location for the ocean view from balconies and we we're not disappointed. Bed location in room was positioned where you can not see the water from the bed which is a disappointment. Pool larger than some and a nice hot tub. Break ok nothing great. Scrambled eggs heat and serve sausage. Biscuits but pretty sad thick gravy. Fruit was oranges and apples. But make you own waffles a plus and juice so not bad. A good value for area but no beach on this part of seawall.

    « The Plus is not just in a name. »

    Let me share the plusses. Every room is a view of the gulf. The higher the floor the better. Rooms ending in 01, 02, 22, or 23 are at the end of the halls and quieter. Comfortable beds. Soft, absorbent bath linens. Hardwood floors. Hot breakfast. Bathroom stayed fog free during a shower, good ventilation. Balcony. Friendly desk staff.

    I booked a room on our return from our cruise at the Best Western down from Best Western Plus because I was told we cold do early check in - not true, I was told our room would not be available til 400om and it was only noon, the front desk clerk (female with blue hair) was very rude and did not help out at all. I went down to the Best Western Plus and was assisted by the front desk clerk name Canyon, she was so very helpful and was able to get us into a room immediately without incident while apologizing for the actions of the desk clerk, sad. Her kindness and ability to go above and beyond did not go unnoticed. Our room was very nice, clean and we were able to relax after a week at sea. Thank you Canyon for being a fantastic desk clerk, more places need people like you..... Sherry Goldstein

    « Super clean and friendly »

    Everything was super! The staff was so friendly. This is one of the cleanest hotels I've ever been to. They were constantly cleaning all areas including the parking lot. This place is on the ball. This hotel is 2 years old and I'm sure it's seen quite a few customers but it looks like it was just recently opened. I believe every room has a straight on view from their balcony of the ocean.

    « Great svce and Decent Breakfast - Do not stay here during Spring Break or Noisy Times »

    The property is very good, from comfortable clean sheets to good quality breakfast to room cleanliness. The rate was a little high ($199 for Spring Break Saturday Night) and the ppl above us were stomping on the floor and moving furniture around all night! When we pay $200 for a room and "getaway" we would like to SLEEP as well and cannot do that with out-of-control guests! The Hotel was very helpful though and called them to tell them to quiet down and also sent security up to make them quiet down. They would just start back up again at all hours of the night. Awesome Hotel, however, COME UP WITH A STRICT POLICY ABOUT AFTER-HOURS NOISE AND DISRUPTIONS! Kids or not, rules need to be in place to accommodate all the other guests. Beautiful view of the ocean from balcony.

    « WHAT A DUMP!!! NEVER AGAIN! »

    Several Issues with this one: 1) Dirty towel & trash left in hallways that were never vacuumed in the 4 days I stayed. 2) Room floor dirty, not swept or mopped 3) Breakfast at 8am, only 1 waffle machine working and people waiting. Day 2 @ 6:30am - no eggs 4) Staff not around for questions, kept in back rooms didn't want to hear complaints 5) Coffee not fresh brewed, liquid concentrate...awful tasting 6) No internet connection unless you are on their computers. Not sure why wifi couldn't be accessed. Employee shrugged shoulders and pointed to their computers 7) Staff inter-mingling with boyfriends rather than attending guest needs or working 8) Hot water was not hot, just warm in shower then after 10mins went to scalding. Not consistent 9) Main excuse for all the issues...its "spring break" and we're overwhelmed. 10) Wakeup call requested for 7:30, never met and was late for appointment Worst excuse, own and accept your faults and try to better the situation rather than ignore it I came out for a tour to possible invest in timeshare. With all the troubles I'm having at this particular hotel I really don't this EVER happening. Maybe Holiday Inn Express should NOT use this hotel when they are trying to sell their properties.

    « A very Welcome Stay »

    My wife & I recently had the opportunity to stay at this Best Western Plus, for a business & Leisure trip rolled into one. We were welcomed so well by the staff & during our stay we found them to be knowledgeable of the area, streets, dinning places, & attractions available. We were treated very well & were always greeted warmly & friendly. The staff are great! They were more than helpful & very accommodating to our every need. We couldn't be more happier & will stay here again on our next venture to Galveston. The Hotel is right on the Seawall Blvd & close to everything. It was a very restful & enjoyable stay thanks to the entire staff.

    Nice and clean hotel. We were impress with the room smelling fresh and clean when we walked into our room. Very nice ocean view from our private balcony. We were not happy about the low water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was okay. Nice spacious breakfast room. Staff was nice. within walking distance from hotel to a variety of restaurants. slight street noise early in the morning. Rooms are facing the street. The workout facility was nice. Overall nice stay. We would return.

    From the moment I walked in the door, very long. All of the rooms to go. Good location, good breakfast, good service and people. Very nice room very updated. Unfortunately the pool was not working of the time we were there. But it looks like it would've been very nice for the hot tub also. They have snacks and drinks available at the front desk and free coffee tea it's up to all day long. Highly recommend staying there.

    « Love this place »

    We stayed in this hotel twice on our trip around Texas. It is situated right across the road from the Gulf of Mexico on the eastern end of the Seawall. Each room has a balcony and we spent quite a bit of time just watching the view. The rooms was spotlessly clean with a large bed, sofa, work desk and big TV. It had a great bathroom with a large shower. During our first stay, Hurricane Harvey hit, but we were well looked after and felt perfectly safe. We returned approx 1.5 weeks later for another 5 days after they'd cleaned up after the Hurricane and it was good as new. It was a lovely pool and hot tub. Breakfast is the usual and was fine. The staff are very friendly and gave us lots of info about the local area and places to visit. The price increased considerably during the weekend, but this is true for the whole of Galveston. We will be back on our next trip to Texas.

    « Love this place! »

    Beautiful new hotel! When we entered the hotel, we were so happy to see a beverage table right by the door to welcome guests. Hot breakfast is available in the morning in a big room. Coffee and tea are good. We love that all the rooms face the ocean and the view was stunning. We were on the third floor and the hallways have windows which made the hotel naturally bright. Beds were really comfortable. No carpet is in room. This hotel is brightly lit at night outside the building which we love for safety reasons.. We did hear traffic noise at night & perhaps sound of ocean waves. Not close to shops & food so you do need to drive a few minutes to get to places.

    « Loved the Hotel and Customer Service was wonderful »

    Anna is the best!!! She help me to get in last minute due to a hotel mess up. I booked 4 rooms and they were all suites with a gulf water view. The rooms were roomy, clean and updated with laminate flooring. Each room had a balcony with chair that overlooked the Gulf. It was fabaulous. I was also able to get shuttle service to and from the port from their sister hotel almost 1 hotel down. I'm a travel agent and will certainly book my clients here in the furture.

    This was a great stay for us other than the weather. Beautiful hotel, well maintained, great location and great staff. We will stay here again when in this area. The only problem was extremely cold weather and could not enjoy the balcony and amazing view of the beach. The King Suite was great room and a comfortable bed.

    « Very nice hotel! »

    We stayed one night at this hotel over the holidays. We booked a King Suite. The room was large, clean and had a great view of the gulf.We liked that the floors were hard surface and not nasty carpet you usually find in hotels. The bathroom was also spacious, clean and we liked the updated decor. The only thing we did not like about the room was that the lights in front of the hotel were so bright we had to move the chairs on the balcony off to the side and behind a partial wall in order to see any of the gulf. In the daytime the view is great! We slept in and missed the breakfast, but I went down to find a cup of coffee and the breakfast area was quite large and inviting. The hotel was quiet when we were there, but it was also a Friday night in the winter (12/29) so I do not know what it would be like on weekends or in the summer. We would recommend this hotel to others and will definitely be the first place I look into next time we stay in Galveston.

    I chose this hotel for its price and location. The weather was cold, wet, and windy so we did not end up walking on the beach, but you could get there very easily. The Best Western Plus a little further away on the sea wall has a better view, but it also has a higher price tag.

    I would recommend this BW Plus at the Seawall in Galveston. The view of the gulf from the bedroom was more than I expected. The hotel looks modern and the rooms were very good for the price paid. One small problem was the quality of the beds/mattress, I think an upgrade is needed but overall my wife and I enjoyed our stay.

    « OK Hotel »

    Some positives and negatives about this hotel. We traveled and arrived here on Christmas Day. Weather was a bit of rain, windy and cold. We were happy with a fast and easy check in (I think his name was Nicholas at the front desk. Very nice,) I told him I was going to take my kids to Rainforest Cafe he said the hotel had coupon for a free appetizer or free kids meal unfortunately he never gave me the coupon. When we arrived to our room it was COLD! We closed the vents and cranked up the heat. After 20 minutes we realized our room had NO HEAT!! We were freezing the whole night and I traveled with a 4 year old and an 8 month old. HIGHLY disappointed my kids were freezing and I had to sleep fully clothed with my jacket on. I bet their A/C doesn't even fully work in the summer. IDK but breakfast was lackluster but its free so I guess you cant complain. The rooms are SPACIOUS, CLEAN and NICE! The balcony view is great as well.

    overall the property is pretty nice, situated on the water front, they do however, need to test the new rooms to ensure things are in working order, the first room had no heat and when they swapped the room out, the phone in the second room didn't work

    The Best Western Plus chain of hotels is a midscale luxury chain and the Galveston Suites is in line with the chain. Nice big rooms, all on the waterfront, with private balconies overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and Seawall Blvd. Nice pool area, breakfast area, and lobby area. Beach area right across the street. Although on the less traveled West end of Galveston Island, it is only minutes away from most tourist areas of the island.

    The hotel was across the street from the gulf. The view perfect. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. They say they are new since 2016, but even now age is beginning to show. Some maintenance on everyday items that get wear and tear would help keep up with the overall appearance. Breakfast was just "okay." Hard to get to the waffle irons! Better upkeep of the breakfast area during the allotted times would help. No fresh fruit was to be had. Sausage was bland as were the eggs. The staff were friendly and very helpful. No complaints there. Would stay at this hotel again!

    Great location for a pre cruise stay, close to a few restaurants, movie theater, gift shop and miniature golf. A new very clean hotel with very large rooms, though the bathroom could be larger and another chair would be nice. Great pool area and breakfast room. Nice free breakfast and coffee 24/7. The staff at this hotel is fantastic - they go over and beyond to make sure your stay is the best. Canyon and Anna are the best and friendliest front desk people I've run across in a long time. This must be a very well managed hotel because the staff really want to please and care about their jobs!! Highly recommend this hotel.

    « Great hotel but need a little work »

    This is a great hotel with every room, except those on the ground floor, have a balcony that looks over the Gulf. The balconies have enough room to actually sit and enjoy the view. Two down sides are; 1. Fake "wood" floors, though beautiful, causes the noise from the guest above to radiate into my room like a drum. 2. The water pressure was minimal. Water barely flows out of the shower head to rinse off your body.

    « Best Value on the Seawall! »

    Galveston is my happy place and I've stayed at nearly every property along the Seawall. This hotel is the absolute best value hands down! It is literally on the Seawall, not pushed back like the major chains. Your room is literally next to the ocean! Great staff, spacious rooms, free breakfast, the price can not be beat and the views are absolutely perfect and unobstructed! The sunrise and sunset from your private balcony are out of a post card!

The person above us dropped his remote and it sounded like it was right in our room and I almost jumped out of my bed, also the first time we stayed in this hotel we could hear the people above us every single time they walked. The Hotel is great, it's clean, the staff is great the beds are super comfortable and I will stay here again but I will request that I be on the top floor so I don't have to hear anyone above me walking.

    « New and excellent, great views, but slightly away from the main tourist areas. »

    The hotel is across the street from the beach, however this area of the beach isn't usable because the water comes all the way to the seawall, there's no sand. The nearest usable beach is almost a mile east, too far to walk. The hotel isn't really located near anything of tourist interest. There's 3 very casual cafes about 1/3 mile west, but most restaurants begin several miles east. The hotel itself is very nice. Very recently opened so everything's fresh and clean and functions well. Hasn't yet attained that ?well-used? effect that beach hotels typically acquire. Staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel has 5 floors of rooms, but there are two speedy elevators. All rooms face the beach and are suites, with balconies. Every room above the first floor has a great view. Being directly on Seawall Boulevard and all rooms facing Seawall Blvd, the lower floors do get some vehicle road noise at night., but it's not bad. The rooms are very large and nicely furnished. The mattresses were a little firmer than we like, but most hotels are. The room floors aren't carpeted, but were simulated wood. Really liked that, as beach hotel carpets usually stay nasty from the constant wet and sandy beach goers. The bathrooms are very modern and attractive, but there are no tubs, only large glassed showers. Actually preferred it. Ice machines are located only on the 2nd and 4th floors. The breakfast dining room is quite large with a lot of seating. The breakfast provided was very extensive, including protein.

    Great desk staff and location. Bring your own coffee pot or go to Starbucks. Breakfast was ok for complimentary, but went out to restaurants when we wanted good breakfast. Rooms were very good size with a great balcony view of ocean. Beds were comfortable and fenced parking around the back was a real plus.

    « Could have been better »

    After searching for a beachfront hotel we decided to go with this place. We booked this room with Expedia for the location and the view. There was also a bonus 2 hour late checkout which was perfect. The location of the hotel is a little further away from all the action. We were just looking to relax so this was fine for us. This property could have easily been rated 5 stars but there were too many hiccups so I give it a 3. Customer Service: I tried calling to hotel 4 times before my arrival but no one picked up( that should have been a red flag). Upon checking in I approached the desk and gave the young man my name for my reservation. After checking he said." I don't have a reservation for you here. It must be at the other Best Western down the street". I know for a fact that I booked this one because I researched this one and they have the balcony with the view of the beach that I was looking for. I informed him that I did indeed have a reservation. He finally found it after a young lady came over to assist him. She then informed us that the only king room they had was one with an obstructed view(keep in mind I booked this hotel for the view). She said there was a double queen room available with a view. Frustrated because this was not what I booked I accepted. We got our room key and headed to the room. When we reserved the room we got an extended 2 hour late checkout, but due to the mess up with our room I decided to call and make sure the front desk was aware of our late checkout. The front desk attendant assured me that it would be honored. I guess housekeeping didn't get the memo because they came knocking on the door at 10:45 a.m. while I was getting dressed (disregarding the do not disturb sign). I told her we had a late checkout. She looked confused and said okay. After that I felt like I had to rush to get dressed before she came back again. Room: The best part of my stay. I absolutely loved the layout of the room and the amount of space there was. The room was very nice a clean with a fresh smell. There was a shower only the the bathroom. The room had a microwave/fridge with a coffee maker in the room. The beds were nice and comfortable. The seating area was nice and spacious, equipped with a sofa bed. The balcony was small with an awesome beach view with chairs to sit in and enjoy the view. Amenities: There is coffee in the room which was convenient. The ice machines are located only on the 1st, 2nd and 4th floors. If you don't want to do a lot of walking to look for ice, you might want to get a room on those floors. There are also drink vending machines in the room with the ice machines. My husband and I went to look for a vending machine to get water for me to take my medication (that turned out to be a scavenger hunt). The vending machines were out of order on every floor except the 2nd floor. We finally found one that works it would not accept any bills or change. I had to use a card only to find out the water was sold out (I was furious at this point.) We just got a soda instead. The hotel has a laundry room on the first floor. There was a pool but we did't use it. Breakfast is served in the morning which consist of a basic continental breakfast. There is also a coffee machine in the lobby. This hotel is a very nice property and it could really be great. Customer service needs work. If there are vending machines it does guest no good unless they actually work. House keeping should be in communication with the front desk. I would stay at this property again for the view and location once the hiccups are fixed. Tip: Bring your own beverages.

    Hubby and I were able to make a quick trip down to fish. We did not have a reservation and typically use a hotel booking app. The girl at the first desk was friendly and quick and they were able to match the price so I didn't have to hassle with the 3rd party app. The hotel is clean and inviting! The room was large with a beach front view. Single room with King bed and a sitting area was great for us to stretch out and relax. Breakfast was hot and ready at 6:30 am. Great variety and friendly staff. Glad we stayed here for this quick trip.

    We have stayed at this location two times within six months. First reservation was approximately 1 1/2 week in advance. Got to hotel and was told our reservation had just come though. Only had 2 rooms left. Mind you we are Diamond Members. Got put up on top floor almost at end of floor. Just got back and once again was put on 3rd floor next to end, could not sit on balcony when parking lot lights came on because it would blind you. The rooms were ok, just wish there had been bath tubs in room.

    « 5 day vacation to Galveston Island »

    We are here for 5 days. This hotel has been great. All rooms have balconies that overlook the Seawall. Hotel appears to be fairly new and was very clean. They serve a full hot breakfast buffet that is included with room. We can sit out and watch surfers and hear the ocean. We walked the seawall tonight and went into one of the souvenir stores, Jimmy's, that services one of the long fishing piers. They usually charge for you to go out on the pier, but since we did not take money when we went out walking, they graciously let us walk out on the pier to see what the fishermen were catching for free. It was about 7:30 and they were catching HUGE redfish. We saw two fishermen catch fish that were over 2 feet long head to tail! So if you come to fish, bring tackle for really big fish if you want to catch them. if you have not been to Galveston lately, consider it. The island has been really cleaned up since Ike. There are new restaurants everywhere and great stores on the Strand. There is an entertainment pier with carnival type rides, the ferry to Bolivar penninsula (free by the way) and you are only 45 from NASA!

Her face looked as if to say, doesn't everyone do this! NO! We loved the room and the view right way and booked with Ms. Anna! This was Oct. 5, 2017, on my birthday.

    « Not fancy, but new and clean and good value »

    This is a mid-range hotel, but was a very good value for a hotel in it's price range. Everything was new and clean, but obviously not a luxurious, top end hotel. We liked that it was not at the busiest part of the "strip", since it was easier to get in and out of the parking area and onto the street. And we loved that all the rooms faced the ocean and each with a balcony. The breakfast room was spacious and pleasant. The breakfast food was ok, with several hot foods to pick from. For us, having breakfast there one day was nice, but we chose to eat most of our breakfast meals at restaurants, with more variety and taste. On the other side, a complimentary hot breakfast is always appreciated!

    My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in mid August. We had a king room on the 3rd floor and had a very nice view of the gulf. Check-in was easy and the room was clean. We're not big fans of the wood flooring because of the way the sand tracks around the room. Location is good, building is new, and the staff was nice.

    « Hotel is great, Guests - not so much. »

    The staff was fantastic. We were checked in super fast and got a room on the 1st floor. We were only going to be there for 1 night before we took a family cruise. The rooms were clean but a little worn. We had a balcony but someone had dropped caramel candy on the floor and in the heat and humidity, it was really yucky so we avoided going out on that particular balcony. The bathroom was spacious but baseboard tiles were falling off the wall. Other than these two issues, the beds were great and the carpet was clean. We were a party of 4 and met up with a party of 5. We had 4 children and 5 adults. We had driven in from AR, VA, and TX. We were tired and wanted to enjoy the pool. There was a group of 4 adults with about 8 children (hard to figure out the exact number) and they monopolized the tables in the shade from 1:30 PM until 8:15 PM. One table had the kids cups and toys and they adults sat at the other table. We tried the old "stare at them" routine but evidently we were no competition for the shade and a bucket of beer. That said, our kids loved the pool and the adults just stood around (all chairs were taken except the 4 chairs around the kids toy table). Good manners are hard to find anymore, For dinner, we asked the staff if we could eat pizza in the breakfast room. They said fine if we would clean up. That was not a problem for us so we had a pizza party and it was a great ending to the swim party. Breakfast the next morning was great. They had scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits, bread, english muffins, and bagels for toasting. Juice, milk and coffee. There was even a pancake machine. Kids had a great time and thought that all the fruit loops they could eat was a great deal. All in all, the hotel was great.

My only negative is that they do not close the pool and at midnight there were still kids down there screeching so I had to be the bad guy and call down to front desk. It was remedied quickly. Just a note to future travelers, I do not care if you let your kids stay up all night in the pool, but please keep it down.

    « Nice Hotel but not near any attractions or restaurants »

    New hotel with nice, clean, quiet rooms. There was a bachelor party three doors down from my room but I never heard a sound. Unfortunately, the hotel is not close to any attractions. The closest restaurant is at least a mile up Seawall Blvd. The "beach" is across the street but directly in front of the hotel the beach consists of large granite rocks and sand. You have to walk 1/4 mile to the left to reach just sand and there is a pier 1/4 mile to the right. Traffic in front is horrible especially on weekends but there are intermittent gaps that allow you to cross on foot or merge into traffic with your vehicle. The free breakfast was clean and presentable but not very tasty. Scrambled eggs, sausage, cold cereal, pastries, waffles and even pancakes that you make yourself. My room was directly over the pool which was no issue except the pool didn't look very clean. Maybe it is seawater. Staff was very friendly.

    This Best Western Plus is an excellent choice for Galveston. The hotel is very clean and every room has a view of the ocean. We loved having two queen beds along with a sofa bed. The rooms also included a refrig and microwave. The hotel must be fairly new, is very up to date, and very clean. I loved the showers in the restroom. However, families with small children may prefer a bathtub. The beach directly across the street is all rock, so you will need to use another public beach. That is not a problem in Galveston, there are many areas with beach access. The free breakfast was okay, but not the best. We will stay here again for sure on future trips.

    « Worst Experience Ever »

    This hotel stay was truly the worst I've ever experienced. First, the hotel couldn't find my reservation, though I could clearly show them an email confirmation of it. Then they claimed the only room they could offer after that was a King suite, which was not the correct bedding for what I needed, but since I was desperate for a room, I took it anyway. The phone in the room did not work. The staff was extremely unprofessional (swearing in front of me and my kids) and unhelpful with terrible attitudes. Then when I woke up at 5 the next morning, there was no power. We were told the power had been out since 1am, but they knew nothing about when it would be on again and did not help with anything. There was no hot water for the shower. We had to drag all of our suitcases down 3 flights of stairs in the dark and got no breakfast. I honestly don't even feel like I should have to pay for this room given that it was such a horrible experience, and we did not even have power for half of our stay. I will never recommend this particular hotel to anyone, and I certainly won't be staying at a Best Western again.

    We stayed for a weekend for a wedding and we absolutely loved it here! All the rooms have a water view and a nice little balcony. Everything was very clean and well appointed. The breakfast in the morning was great; tons of options. (And adorable Texas shaped waffles!) The staff was very friendly. The beds were SO comfortable! I loved that the floors weren't carpet; as a sceptical hotel customer I always wonder how clean carpet actually is, so hard flooring was definitely a plus in my book. Parking was plentiful, and it is in a quiet area which we loved. Overall, if we ever visit Galveston again this is where we would stay, hands down.

    We spent Memorial Day weekend at this hotel. The front staff told us the hotel was booked solid, and it showed. I was so grateful that the breakfast dining room was much larger than average or breakfast would have been a miserable experience. The ladies that worked the front desk and breakfast room on Saturday and Sunday were amazing. They handled the crowds with patience and a smile and stayed on top of everything. In comparison, the employee that handled breakfast on Monday was a complete disappointment. I never once saw her walk around and replenish supplies or empty the overflowing trash cans. Good - free hot breakfast (excellent scrambled eggs and coffee!), nice size rooms, nicely decorated bathrooms, all rooms face water, soundproof rooms (both for outside traffic and hallway noise), mini-fridge and microwave in room, pretty good pool and hot tub. OK - pull-out couch was not terrible. MEH - I could never shake the feeling that the hotel had once been a cheap motel. The inside was nicely decorated but landscaping was non-existent and if you sat in your balcony you basically faced the front parking lot. I would hope that if it had been built recently all parking would have been in the back to give all rooms a nicer view. Overall, it was a relaxing weekend. I'm glad we were not that close to East side of the Seawall because Memorial Day crowds were crazy!

Balcony view of the ocean, very comfortable beds, large walk in shower plus a lounge area in our room with a sofa and chair - a relaxing stay for our 26th anniversary. Breakfast provided a plentiful selection of choices - plus the breakfast staff was very friendly and even gave us some fishing tips! Impressed with how sound proof the rooms were.

    We'd checked into a nearby Howard Johnson hotel in Galveston, and the room was disgusting. I was getting the heebies the more I looked around (not just dust, but a large very dead bug had been left behind on the desk by housekeeping). We left there, and got hold of the Best Western. We were put in in a fantastic room, that was admittedly more expensive but orders of magnitude better than the Howard Johnson in looks, set up, and cleanliness. It was absolutely worth it.

    « comfortable with great staff »

    My mom, sisters and I stayed here in two rooms for one night before a cruise. We used Super Shuttle (which was great) to get from the Houston airport to the hotel so we didn't have a car. The hotel is across the street from the beach and every room has an ocean view. We walked about 3 blocks down to Jimmy's on the Pier for dinner (separate review). Each room was very large with two queen beds and a fold-out double couch. We had three people in each room and had plenty of room. The couch wasn't very comfortable but it was ok. The room was clean and had a balcony with a view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was good. For transportation to the port, we took a shuttle from a hotel that is two doors down the street (being renovated, soon to be another Best Western). We had to reserve and pay for it in person the morning of the cruise and it was $15 per person round-trip. (There is no Uber or Lyft in Galveston and the taxi service is unreliable.) The stay went well and having the shuttle two doors down was very convenient. The airline lost one of my sister's suitcases and the hotel gave her all the items she needed (comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.) for the night and took delivery of her suitcase from the airline in the middle of the night.

    « Awesome Place »

    My wife and I stayed at the Galveston Best Western Plus Suites on Galveston Island for 5 nights in early November 2016. I can say in all honesty that when we visit Galveston, which will be frequently during the next several months (we're building a house there) we will stay exclusively at the Best Western Plus. Everything was top notch, but most importantly the staff was the best we've experienced in a long time. That says a lot because my wife and I both are aircrew for a major airline and we stay in many hotels, probably 12-15 nights per month between the 2 of us. The property is just a few months old, and everything is new, clean and works great. Our room had a very nice balcony overlooking the Gulf. The beach is just across the street, and although the hotel is close to the road, the room was very quite. There was a counter height refrigerator and microwave in room. The a/c was very cold and the bed comfortable. Bath was good size with big shower and plenty of water pressure. The Internet was actually "high-speed"and plenty of channels on the tv too. The fitness center is small but well equipped with a few good cardio machines and a muti-station weight machine that works well. If you need a real gym there is one a few miles away that charges an $8 day pass. The pool was clean and they keep the hot-tub hot. I used both twice every day. The included breakfast is an awesome deal, with REAL eggs and plenty of other healthy and otherwise options. You can have a great meal every morning. The staff was truly friendly, more than pleasant, and helpful. We showed up on very short notice By calling about 15 minutes away without a reservation. BRYCE was working the desk and quickly made us a reservation. When we showed up literally 15 minutes later Bryce announced that he had actually secured a better rate than initially quoted. This motivated guy also said that he got us his favorite room which has a great pool/ gulf view and that he ran up and turned the a/c on to get the room cooled down for us. All this in less than 15 minutes from a cold call. That's fantastic customer service. At check in he also got me enrolled in the Best Western Rewards program. He's a serious go-getter. Also, we had a few minor requests during our stay that Bryce quickly accommodated. We had a flat tire one morning and while I was out messing with the spare, WARD the chef wandered out, introduced himself and said he saw out the kitchen windows that we might need some help. What is this, a Four Seasons?? Someone runs up to our room to turn the a/c on to cool the room down prior to out arrival, and the chef comes out of the kitchen to help us with a flat tire. This is friendly service you would only expect at a high end hotel that costs $$$$. We also had a nice talk with the manager one day after breakfast, and he offered plenty of advice on the local area. So our advice when traveling to Galveston is: stay at the Best Western Plus Suites, the one down the seawall a few miles at 8503 Seawall. Bryce and the Best Western crew will take very good care of you.

    « FILTHY!!!! »

    I don't even know where to start.....My family and I just had an absolutely horrible experience at Best Western Plus in Galveston, Texas. This is a brand new hotel and both of our rooms were absolutely filthy. There was hair (head & pubic), bugs and black something in the showers. There was sand from one end of the room to the other. Sand covering the floors and couch. I pulled back the sheets and there were orange stains all over the sheets. I initially called down to the front desk when we checked in at 4 and was told someone would be up immediately. We returned to the room at 7 and no one had cleaned. I called back down to the front desk and was told again someone would be up. As we were leaving the room, a housekeeping women met us at the door. We explained the issues and she said....well I would have to sweep and mop..do you want me to do that? Then she leaves saying she needs to get the mop. I walk down stairs about 5 minutes later and she is sitting in a chair talking to two other employees. We return to the room at 10 to the bathroom soap replaced and NOTHING ELSE CLEANED. I called a third time and was advised by the manager that she said she cleaned the room and he apologized and said it would be taken off my bill. I had to use my husbands shirt as a blanket due to the cleanliness of the hotel, my husband showered in flip flops and I refused to enter the shower all together. In the other room (also disgusting) the manager entered their room while they were sleeping at 4am saying he didn't realize the room was taken. The shower was also so disgusting he had to put a towel down in the shower. I've honestly never experienced the level of filth and bad customer service at any other hotel. Due to it being the Lonestar Rally, the two rooms were not cheap. When we checked out, nothing taken off my bill, he admitted entering my parents room, that the bills note all of the issues and that front desk staff is cleaning the rooms due to lack of housekeeping. I would also suggest being careful because the balcony was loose. After our return the manger states he will refund $54 per room due to issues. No refund. I just get an email from he saying we wouldn't get the refund from the hotel bc we booked through Expedia. We didn't book through Expedia. This place is a nightmare. I would suggest sleeping in a tent in a vacant parking lot before staying in this hotel.

    « Will never stay at another Best Western because of this one! »

    The property was new, but not as clean as you would expect. I was locked out of my room and was told I would have to pay for my room again because the booking agents card was declined. Stayed for two nights and no room service. I stay on the road an average of 4 nights a week for work. I have never had someone lock me out of my room and demand I pay again because of a problem with a major online booking company. If this property does not want to deal with online booking agencies, they picked the wrong business!

    The hotel just recently opened and the staff was nice upon our arrival. We chose this location because of it's closeness to the 91st Street Pier. We had all of our fishing equipment and coolers stolen from the back of our truck. It had to have been several people because our tailgate locks with our doors. They had to lift the heavy coolers in order to steal them. There was another family that lost their fishing gear as well. There is a privacy fence out back but parking up against it did not deter the thieves.

    When i stayed the hotel had only been open for 9 days. I checked in and was given a room directly in front of the elevators. I went back down to the check in and asked for another room due to me being a lite sleeper. The entire staff at the hotel was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very good and everything fresh. They had scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, yogurt, cold cereal, oatmeal, fruit, coffee, tea and juices. Tim Arthur in the dining area was so kind and friendly and kept the area very clean. He made sure the guests had what they needed and asked how things were. Marissa at the front desk was also very kind and helpful. This being a new hotel had some finishing touches that needed to be done. The bathroom and tiles were dirty and grout was missing in some spots. Touch ups in paint needed. Overall good price for this new hotel that is non-smoking.

    There were hairs all over our sheets like they had never been cleaned. I called the front desk and they were quick to come up and bring us new sheets. The toilet and bathtub were not very clean either. The hotel itself was clean and new but I felt like the rooms needed to be cleaner. For it being a brand new hotel I was disappointed. There were people smoking right next to us on their balconies which was rude. Its a non smoking facility I thought? The noise level was loud into the night but I think that was because we were by the elevators. The front desk was very friendly and the breakfast was decent for free. Since it is so far down on the sea wall you can't see any beach just the waves.

    « Major growing pains for a brand new hotel »

    Inexperienced staff (cleaning crew in particular) for a brand-new hotel meant an excessively long check-in process, a broken a/c unit in the room, and failed promise of extended breakfast hours to make up for the check-in debacle. That being said, great location, very nice room, loved the balcony facing the gulf. Hopefully, once they work out the kinks of being new, it will be a great place to stay.
