"What a Joke"
This hotel has absoulutly no amenities!!. with the exception of an Ice machine and a cold muffuin for breakfast. NO pool . No Cold Drink machine and no elevetator!!!!!!!! It is right beside a train Track that runs all through the night. and a truck stop. . This should be a $39 per night MOTEL!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was friendly and professional. Room was adequate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"overall good stay"
The beds are a little hard for me...but suffice. I miss the 4 cup coffee brewers they used to have, not they have a single cup and its NOT a Keurig. the coffee is horrible. Other than that it, it is one of our go to hotels in Galveston.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"it is what it is"
Served Its Purpose,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean and comphy"
a little far away from the tourist area but it was clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been better"
Once we got to the hotel there was a group of people outside on the second floor smoking and drinking right above where our room happened to be. Also we booked a room for four people two beds and there wasnt even enough towels for all of us. When we went to the office to ask for more towels they said that they didnt have any more???...What can of hotel […] doesnt have anymore towels...its a hotel....Also the room was dirty.

"Hotel was nice but too far away from the fun."
Check in and out were easy, but the hotel was very hard to find. The room was clean and comfortable. The view was not good as the hotel was located between a truck stop and a railroad track.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't do it"
Luxuriously uncomfortable room overlooking the train tracks. Question remains as to whether or not the sheets were clean. Hair was on the tile in the shower. Very dirty.Genuine Expedia guest review
"HoJo/Galveston--Fine place to rest before cruise."
We checked in the night before a cruise simply to avoid a 4 hour drive the night before. Pretty basic room but nice shampoos, etc. We brought earplugs and had no problem with the outside noise. Front desk was extremely helpful. We left our car there for the days and took the shuttle to the port, $10 round trip plus tip. No problems at all. Shuttle picked […] us up at the front desk and brought us back at the end of the cruise. The driver was friendly and made it all easy. Will definitely go there again prior to our next cruise.

"To many other options to choose this one!"
I don't really know where to start....not enough towels and when I got some they had rude remarks about it, large hole in the shower, which pinched you every time you stepped near it, sinks would not drain, "free wifi" doesn't work, telephone doesn't work, cigarette burn holes all over the bedding, ice machine worked only when it wanted to. If you are […] willing to let all of this slide it is on the island (opposite side as the beach), which will save you a little time in that since. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for the price"
room was clean, comfortable and plenty of fresh pillows. We enjoyed our stay. We woke up twice during the night to the sound of the train whistle, but was tired and didn't have any trouble going back to sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked for 2 nights they said 1 but we had 5 reservations? Then when we finally got the room for the second night we were not charged 59$ but more and we had to change rooms! Not satisfied at all:(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not the best hotel."
Very Dirty. Location was not good. View out the room was very bad! Looked at a swamp. Lots of garbage outside by dumpster.Genuine Expedia guest review
"old, not a good location"
the staff was very nice. I liked that there was a fridge and microwave. but I'm glad I only had to stay one night because it did not feel like a safe location. the price was way too high for the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel near railroad tracks"
If you have followed the reality show, "Honey Booboo", picture the location of the facility directly near railroad tracks and view from your window are power line towers. Imagine being awaken by the sound of a train just outside your window. Horrible!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too expensive for the room we had"
This hotel is ok if you are just staying 1 night. The hotel staff could have been nicer and available at check out. But it was the cheapest hotel to stay at before we left for our cruise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice hotel for the price"
very nice for the price, good breakfast, plenty of stuff. quite, non busy area.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was ok. It was my second stay here and both times we had to call the front desk to have the air conditioner looked at by the maintenance man. They need to be upgraded! The rooms were hot! Also the television was old. Other than that it was alright for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A true dump"
The room itself is mediocre at best. The hotel lobby smelled like straight up weed. The picture has to be at least 10 years old because the hotel really looks dull and faded. I had to check out early and they would not refund for the two days I didn't stay. I had prepaid.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price"
It is a good option for the price, especially if you will be using the parking lot in front of the hotel the next day to take a cruise. It is besides a gas station with a convenience store. It is not fancy, but the service is excellent. It includes breakfast in the small lobby and has only a few options, but it can work if you have only a light breakfast […] before taking the cruise.

"Grannie's trip to Galveston"
Pleasant, spent little time at hotel as was entertaining grandchildren. Nice hotel for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Even though the rooms were pretty small they were very clean. Beds weren't very comfortable. Good location right off interstate only a few miles from seawall, ferry, and schlitterbahn. Only have 1 roll away bed which we weren't able to use and when we asked for extra blankets and pillows, we were told they didn't have extra.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was nice enough for the price. Everything in Galveston is a bit more than I normally pay elsewhere. The room was clean and appeared well maintained. The only noise was a nearby train and seagulls. Breakfast was perhaps a bit skimpy for my liking, however I am diabetic and need high protein and low carb meals. Most of their offerings were […] high carb and low fiber but did include fruit. Go early for the best selection. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Location has a train that blows the horn at random times, even at nite. Also located beside a truck stop. Service was excellent and house keeping is good with what they have to work with. The hotel is very dated. The rooms are old and musty. The stay was a dissapointment but not due to the staff. We only stayed because we made reservations prior and […] would be charged anyway.

"Convenient, cheap hotel."
The hotel staff was very friendly. The room was very clean. They have a fridge, microwave and safe which surprised me for such a cheap room. Yes it's right next to two train tracks on the harbor but we didn't mind it. My 3 year old loved watching the trains. Also, the air conditioner drowns out the noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
Did not have roll away bed as promise I was get. Other than that it was okay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too bad"
Not too bad, really didnt know what to expect after reading comments online, the hotel was clean and team was accommodating. Good place to stay if you are doing some deep sea fishing, as it is located near the Pier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were okay old appliances dated decorations, and right next to a 24 hour truck stop in front and a busy train track behind. If it was not located a few miles from the beach it would be out of business. forget about the continental breakfast it barely exists and they did not refill the coffee in our room after the first night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A stay for a Day"
Over all my family an I stay was satisfactory we stayed for a week. You get what you pay for. The staff was friendly in a family sense. The hotel facilities and conditions were just what it was convenient. Our toilet backed up on us and my children and I had to use the restroom else where. The bath tub leaked the whole stay, not drip drip but more of […] a light pour. I hope you like cold to luck warm showers there is no warm or hot water nor good water pressure. The cleanliness of the room was good they even do your laundry if you ask. The comfort of the room was on the level of one night stay that's it. Over all if I was traveling alone then yes I would stay here but with my family no. You get what you paid for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Advertise Train Track"
It should be advertised that there is a train track that runs behind the hotel and runs all night longGenuine Expedia guest review
"overall it was bad"
I think it was the worst place we have ever stayed in .. would not recommend to anyone ,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cruise shuttle was more than worth it!"
We stayed here one night before leaving on a cruise for our honeymoon. We arrived late and there were still three people in the reception area waiting to help us. We were surprised to learn that they had a shuttle service that would take us to the port for a small fee and we could leave our car at the hotel for free! When we returned they were waiting […] at the port to pick us up and our car was perfectly safe! This service saved us $50. We will definitely book here again.

"Last choice for Hotel"
That was a pretty Bad hotel, Towels were dingy, carpet was dingy, room smelled like smoke, no swimming pool, bath tub was dingy, beds was not comfortable. Old time TV, for almost 400 dollars for 3 nights I expected more.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not what expected"
need better breakfast, i did ask the owner for hot coffe and he told me to put it on the microwave i will never stay in this hotel again . for the price i did paid i prefer to go to a different hotel with atleast better treat it for hot coffee.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Howard Johnson Express Inn Disappointing Hotel"
We traveled from Dallas for a family trip; a group of 18 ppl. It was not what we expected; we have stayed in Howard Johnson hotels before. This was nothing like it; it was more like a Motel 6. No pool for the children; it wasn't noted on Expedia.com (we didnt even ask asuming there was one). The shower walls in 106 were not clean. Room 109 smelled like […] sewage. There were no laundry rooms. It included breakfast; but the area had limited sitting. Everytime we tried to get food there were 3 or 4 people and it was just too crowded. One person was able to go around 9am and get 3 pieces of bread left; everything else was gone. We were all disappointed and had to go buy breakfast and spend extra money for something that was already included in our package. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not great in Galveston"
Moldy shower curtin, small bath towels, hard crunch towels, thin pillows ( my ears were sore) hard beds, very small soaps & shampooGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheapest stay on Galveston"
If you don't mind the truck stop on the right and industrial park on the left the price was much cheaper than down the road where the tourist stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Free Parking for Cruise"
Only reason for staying was price and free parking for cruise. Otherwise I would not stay here again. The room was very dated and stained. The pipes made loud noises whenever someone staying in our area of the hotel ran water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Ok stay. Needed a room for the night and a place to leave the car for the week while on a cruise and this place to do this.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like the price, not the rooms"
The price was great for Galveston island but the rooms were not so great. My bathtub was dirty and stained. The carpet was very old and musty. The bed was terribly hard and in need of replacing. The breakfast was merely cereal and a muffin. The staff was ok and the manager did accommodate my mother to a 1st floor room because she can't climb stairs. […] The location was much farther from the beach and eating places than anticipated. We paid $75 per night per room when the quality was only $35 per night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would not stay there nor would I recommend it to others. The hotel is located with 200 ft from a R/R crossing and whenever a train passing by, it would make a very loud warning sound all night long. The window view is terrible : It faces a rail road and a couple of greenish ponds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy place to find, easy parking"
Friendly staff, quiet place, away from heavy trafficGenuine Expedia guest review
It was out from the beach but nice and allowed us to go back and relax when we wanted.Genuine Expedia guest review
"lets do it again"
every one was very polite and helpful.didnt want to leave the shower.we will go back every time we go to Galveston.good price.thx for everything.see you next time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the price, other than the nearby train!"
The hotel is nowhere near the seawall, but it is way less expensive, so it's an ok trade. The outside is sort of run down, but the room itself was really nice and it's clear they've been working to make them nice. There's a free continental breakfast, a refrigerator in the room, and a coffee maker. The main downfall of this hotel is that it is located […] directly next to a railroad track and there is a crossing very near. So at 5 AM, I was awakened by a train blowing its horn at the crossing. It happened again at 6:30 AM too. If you're a light sleeper, that will probably be annoying. Heavy sleepers, no problem. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel of last resort!!!"
This hotel is only good for a one night stay....let's say before you leave on a cruise. Do not look for an upgraded motel with quality sheets and towels. Do not look for an updated tv...flat screen..and majority tv stations that work. This hotel is on the train line and next to a truck stop. Be prepared to hear trains and 18 wheelers all night. And […] the worst part of it all....it started to rain and water started to flow into my room from around the a/c unit. I just threw towels over there, considering its 2am. I told the guy at the front desk that morning...and he says "oh yeah we know." I took pictures of the room. As I look back at the pictures, you see the water stains where that room had previously flooded. Please people....pay the extra $20 or $50 and go to another place. Don't subject yourself to this....unless you need a quick 24 hour stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place for quick over night stop - no frills"
Sometimes you have to settle and that is when you stay here. Prices in Galveston can sore when there are events going on and we all can't afford a $300 a night hotel price. That is why I picked this hotel and it was OK, clean but an older hotel from the 70's. Typical two level open to your car hotel. Next to train tracks but they were not used. Safe […] place but definitely not very comfortable. The entire place needs a update. The staff was very nice but it is apparent that they don't put much into the place. Good location for getting to beach and piers which is why we were here, for a early morning fishing trip. Pier 19 is only 10 minutes away. No bugs, but no thrills either.

"Worst lodging ever!!!!"
This place was terrible. We took a shower, walked to the bedroom and looked at our feet. They were solid BLACK on the bottom! It's a good location for the cruise, but not close enough to stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was old but otherwise good if your there to rest your head.. Didn't realize train tracks right behind Hotel..it only passed 3 x on a two day night stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
