... in Galveston and Darren captured a dolphin.
So we head to San Antonio only to be caught in what we thought was rush hour traffic... turns out it was the traffic created by the parade for the San Antonio Spurs after winning the NBA. Brad said later he was caught up in the celebration when he arrived in San Antonio earlier in the week ...
On our way to Galveston we got caught in traffic so we opted for an adventure in the form of a detour. What a surprising view. The Gulf roughly lapping the shores; beautiful homes on stilts, pastel colors of beach community homes were easy on the eye. I wish more of them were caught in pictures. Small farms, resturants and shops dotted the main drag and the bay was so still in direct contrast of the gulf. This was an enjoyable ...
... other pool and hot tubs on the back of the ship. These are the ones that are really full all the time. Next we went up to the deck 11 to watch the ship start leaving Galveston. It was really fun to watch how this huge metal boat just kind of slips out to sea effortlessly and everything gets smaller and smaller until it disappears in the distance. I'm prone to motion sickness but on this trip I didn't really feel a whole lot of movement. A little ...
... toothless people. The town also had a very large jail with a road sign which said: Don't stop for Hitchhikers. Mmmm we don't need to be told twice. I instructed Steve to mow down anything or anyone who got in our way. Lucky for them (?) we didn't have to. Found our way, after some instruction from the navigator was mistranslated and we had to chuck a U Turn (four times), to Galveston. Nice spot on the Gulf of Mexico about 1.5 hrs south of Houston. ...
Today it was a nice day temperature-wise (22 degrees), but very foggy. We couldn't even see the gulf from the sidewalk 10 feet away. The forecast was also for thundershowers, so we decided to head to the Rainforest Pyramid.
They just completed $25 million in enhancements to the building, following damage from Hurricane Ike. It's a 10-story arborium, but with birds and exotic animals. What's different is that the birds and monkeys are all loose - ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Galveston
Thank you Quality Inn and Suites!
Myself and my wife were very pleased with this hotel. Nice ammenities, the room had a great view and the service was a real plus. We were very happy to stay here and wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to other travelers to the Galveston area.
Lovely New Hotel...Great Views and Service.
We dropped in to Galveston for a quick weekend and noticed the Quality Inn right off of 61st. Checked the rates and they were extremely reasonable for the hugh double queen room we reserved. Also, hardly hard to use the car for the weekend because of the fact that we were within walking distance to many sights and right across from the beach. Staff was friendly and helpful, too. Very loverly indeed!
Nice Place to Stay
My wife and I decided to stay at the Quality Inn in Galveston based on reviews on this site, and because I had enough Choice Rewards points for a free two-night stay. We had an excellent trip to Galveston, and had no complaints about this hotel.
Check-in and out were easy, the desk staff was friendly and helpful. All rooms at this hotel have a balcony with a view of the gulf-- like most hotels in Galveston, the Quality is across the street from the beach. Our room was clean and spacious, and the hotel in general was clean overall. Of course there were the occasional sand footprints in the hallway carpet, but seemed to be cleaned every day.
The free breakfast was comparable to all others I encounter in my business travels-- Small selection of cereals, fruits, and juices. We opted to pick up breakfast to take to the beach with us each day. The pool area was located under the hotel, and always seemed to be busy with children.
If you are coming to Galveston and want to spend lots of time at the hotel hanging out, this probably isn't the place for you. However, if you are like my wife and I and just need a clean place to lay your head after a long day in the sun at the beach that also has a nice place to sit and look at the gulf in the evenings, give the Quality Inn a try. I know we will likely stay here again, even if next time it's not for free!
This hotel is great, no question about it!
I reviewed this site and discovered that the Quality Inn and Suites was highly recommended and on a trip to Galveston, I can see why. Staff is very nice and personable and the hotel was clean and very well kept. I saw the negative review posted here, but can assure you that it is way off base. This hotel is new and many people were staying there during our time as well. You can't let a few wall scuffs turn you off. Main service was prompt and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. If you come to Galveston, try this place out. They have a new manager, Alexander Baker and we spoke with him upon check in. He and the other folks are pros and will take care of your needs.
Ain't nothing quality about it...
We picked this property after talking with other hotels on the island, and after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Not only did we make reservations for our family for 3 nights in early August, we even talked 12 other members of our family to unfortunately stay at the same hotel. Our review: Very expensive for what you don't get, property is only 3 months old, and is already dirty. Hotel halls were filthy and not cleaned once during our stay. If you can find staff, they were rude or overwoked and when we asked to speak with a manager, no manager on site. When we say bad service, how about staff hanging up on phone, or no maid service at least one of the days we stayed. Guests in our party of 5 rooms had reservations for nonsmoking rms and were given smoking rms or put on smoking floors, and reservations for roll aways beds for children ignored. At check out, we and at least 3 other groups wished to lodge complaints about the hotel, but again no manager available and we were directed to call Choice Hotels 800 # who promptly stated that each hotel is indep owned and there is not much they can or are willing to do. Nice....
There is nothing quality about this hotel, don't make it your choice....
Nice place.. we'll be back!
This hotel and it's staff were exceptional. This was our first trip to Galveston and we enjoyed the fact that we were treated so well by everyone at the Quality Inn and Suites. I travel a lot as part of my sales position and have stayed at other hotels of the same type, but never have I been more impressed with the level of concern and care for me and my family by a hotel. We'll be back for sure!
This is the PLACE!
For travlers looking for a great hotel on a budget without going to the cheapy places, the Quality Inn and Suites is the best bet. Great service, easy check in and the rooms are very nice. This is a new hotel located right off of 61st street and Seawall.. perfect location for families looking for a nice stay close to Moody Gardens. Also, the entire hotel offers excellent views of the Gulf from almost every room. Highly recommended!!
Great New Hotel
My husband and I recently returned from a one night stay at this new hotel on Galveston Island. I was a bit leary, not having stayed at a Choice Hotel before, however due to the hotel being new, we decided to give it a shot.
We stayed in a King Suite on the 4th floor and were pleasantly surprised. The decor in our room was nice, including two television sets, a mini refridgerator and a microwave in the suite. Also, a balcony overlooking the Gulf was a nice amenity.
The lobby and pool area were very clean and nice. We did not use the pool, however it was indoor and there was also a hot tub. The hotel offers a continental breakfast featuring cereal, muffins, danishes, coffee and juice.
Overall great location--on a nice stretch of beach in the center of everything. Great value if you get a great rate of $114.00 as we did. We will def. return soon!
This is an awesome hotel. We got the best deal in town I think because the hotel had just opened and the rate was $99 per night. Beautiful hotel with a great location near the restaurants and the beach.
Coming from London, I could not believe how big the rooms were.
We had a great view of the ocean.
Will stay again if we come back to Houston and Galveston.
Beautiful Brand New Beach Hotel
This hotel was just built and it is in a great spot, right across from the beach and it is central to everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel was beautiful. Our room was large and we had a great view of the beach. We will stay here again.
