"good value for the money"
I think the hotel is a perfect for the cost of the stay. The staff was nice and the room was fine. Good location for my needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not stay again"
Bedspread had cigarette burns, there is a LOUD TRAIN about 20 yards from the back of the motel, walls are so thin it's like being in the same room as your neighbor. I walked across the parking lot to the gas station and bought a bag of chips and 2 bottles of water and it was $15! I have pretty low expectations, but this place is awful. I don't know […] why anyone would stay here other than it's right off 45 so easy access to the highway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never stay there again."
The hotel was between a truck stop and a railroad track. The A/C fan would not stay on when compressor went off. It went from noisy to nothing. The outside noise the was very apparent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Toilet seat was broken. Shower dirty and dripped.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not bad for what I paid."
Stayed at Howard Johnston during spring break vacation and really can't complain about the hotel except for not having a pool. The breakfast was whay you would expect for a hotel that small but food was good. Hotel staff very nice and accommodating. I would like to say SHAME on parents would travel with unruly kids, running, jumping and screaming while […] my family and I were trying to sleep, my two yr old couldn't rest because of this. Teach your kids some "freaking" manners! Called down to complain and the manager took care of right away. Would definitely stay here again! Rooms were clean with the exception of the phone( had some brown liquid inside cradle?). Air condition unit did not cool room at all but thr weather was kind of chilly at night so not much of a huge deal, would strongly suggest to have that looked at.

"NEVER EVER AGAIN!"
Broken toilets! No housekeeping!! Old, dingy, & stained towels!Filthy, filthy, filthy!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the price"
The hotel was not conveniently located near our weekend activities but to be fair, it would be great for cruise patrons. Our rooms were not ready when we arrived and the staff was not terrible accommodating but for the price I paid, my complaints are few. I read other reviews that complained about the noise from the train station nearby but I slept […] well and heard nothing. The room was clean and stocked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson hotel in Galveston tx."
The hotel was clean, staff very nice. The drive to the beach was under 10 min.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very comfortable Convenient hotel"
Howard Johnson's is the best For the money. very convenient yet far enough away from the crowd. my room was clean and comfortable. continental breakfast was sufficient.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff friendly, property clean, freshly painted, beds hard as concrete, but this is an economy scaled motel, you get your money's worthGenuine Expedia guest review
"Near our cruise port."
The room and bathroom were clean, it had comfortable beds, clean linens, and included a good breakfast. It is not the kind of place to hang out at. It is a great place to provide for your basic needs and was near our cruise port.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We will return"
I was suprised by the excellent Customer Service & clean spacious rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Night from hell"
The walls are paper thin and the clientele were shady. The train tracks run about 100 ft from hotel and trains run every two hours. The a/c sounded like a truck everytime it kicked on. The tv got very few channels and none of them were clear. The foot traffic up and down the outside hallway went on all night. The "breakfast" was cold dry pastry and […] weak thin coffee that even made fresh was undrinkable. My recommendation is go somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"clean and less expensive"
Great hotel for clean room and resonable cost if you don't want to be on beach or your jumping on cruise ship and parking your car.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were hugely disappointed in the Galveston Howard Johnson. It was in disrepair and certainly not worth what was charged for the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Terrible! Terrible! Terrible! Arrive late in the evening,location is terrible truck stop on one side railroad tracks on the other side. Rooms very out dated, electrical plugs didnt work, beds hard and stained sheets and bedspreads only spent about 45 mins in room, left and found another hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a Howard Johnson hotel"
I have stayed at previous Howard Johnson Hotels and this hotel was nothing like any other Howard Johnson. . The hotel is very old and the walls are super thin.. You could hear everything in the rooms next door.. The bathroom shower was not separated from the rest of the bathroom and when you took a shower the entire bathroom floor flooded. The window […] outside the room was completely covered with some type of white mold and the AC unit was ridiculously loud... I only stayed one night, and couldn't imagine staying any longer. .. only plus is that the bed was comfortable. . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice enough room and met our needs."
Room was clean and comfortable. It is an older hotel, but seemed to be well maintained. A/C unit was a little loud but worked correctly. Hotel staff was friendly and worked with us to return a GPS watch that my wife left in the room when we checked out.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clerk very helpful. Rooms were clean. Need to put check out times on keys or doors.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find"
Being able to leave our car parked in their lot was worth staying here. The bed was a little hard but the room was clean. The shuttle people are very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were I'm the middle of a major renovation project. Hated thatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay was very peaceful."
The room was very clean, beds were comfortable and it was very quiet. The parking lot is well lit and didn't have any reservations about going out to our vehicle in the middle of the night. For the price, it was the best place we have stayed in Galveston. We will use this hotel for our future visits to Galveston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to TAMUG and Close to the Cruise terminal"
I stayed here a couple of nights before I went on a cruise. I booked at the last minute and had a day to visit with my child that attends A&M @ Galveston. It was close to everything I was there for. The staff was pleasant, the room was clean and the price was right. I also read and was aware of the complaints of the train track directly in the back […] of the hotel. This Hotel is on the Harbor side of Galveston, so it is industrial. I didn't mind the train whistles, in fact it was just part of my journey (sort of comforting) My Cruise was very relaxing and I would stay here again for a short visit.

Bath tub was in very bad condition, sheets were heavily stained, mattress was hard and very uncomfortable and room smelled. Paid too much for how the room was.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was okay, truly. The staff was nice. The room was decent. The bed was very firm....like a board....but even that was not unbearable. The hard part for me was opening the current and seeing the ugliest view on the island. It was just for one night and they did serve a continental breakfast. The good outweighed the bad....but that view, it was hid […] eous. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"REALLY BAD NEIGHBORHOOD"
WE WERE AFRAID TO GO OUT THE DOORS. HOTEL ITSELF IS NOT BAD, CLEAN AND PRETTY COMFORTABLE BUT AREA IS VERY ROUGH.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the port"
The hotel is just behind a railroad whose sound is annoying but overall it was a good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"really old and run down but at least clean."
Very disappointedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the pier and seaside"
Satisfied. There was a leak on the floor by the window which was probably due to the heavy raining. The telephone did not work satisfactory so I could not request a wake up call. I notified the desk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
If you going on a cruise it's greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The hotel room was very nice, except for the drywall coming apart at the top of the shower and some cigarette burn marks on the comforter.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay here"
The Lady at the front desk was not willing to help us when the room keys did not work. The Wifi was soooo slow. The room smelt very weird.Genuine Expedia guest review
great after my cruiseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will never stay at this hotel again"
Air conditioner was very, very loud. I am a sound sleeper. I rarely wake up at night, even during thunder storms. But at this Howard Johnson, I could not sleep well, due to the noise from the A/C.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
