      Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Galveston

      No problems at all. A little pricy but nice stay

      from

      Conveniently right across from the beach and all the rooms have views (except maybe the ones down on the first floor next to the Western Sizzler). You have a nice little balcony with a couple of chairs sit on in the evening and look out on a sort of sideways view of the water. Nice high ceilings in our room and no bugs or smells.

      Bad service, needs improvement

      from

      When my wife and I arrived at our room, we discovered that we had to pay an extra $5/night for just a very small refridgerator. We were on the 4th floor, having to use the elevator (there are 2), which sounded like it was going to fall every time we used it, along with being slow to open. Both the elevators were like this. Our second day there we asked an employee for some toilet tissue because the maid didn't leave any (we were totally out) only to get the response "I will bring it right away." We went out sightseeing and returned 7pm and there was nothing sent to us. Then we had to go to the front desk at night to get some, since nobody would do anything. The continental breakfast was a joke, at 7am there was nothing but a scrap of cereal left. We had to go to another floor to get ice, since the one on our floor was broke. This place was very generic and the service was poor. For all the employees this place had, they did nothing for the rooms or the customers. If the service was improved, I would like to stay again. I did like the view of the beach, and the location.

      Nothing Special, but Just Fine

      from

      We had a nice stay here. It's old, but clean & comfortable. The staff was friendly & helpful. They are remodeling, so if you're looking to hang out at the pool or in your room you might want to check if they are finished. The beach is across the street & there are a lot of fun things to do within walking distance. We did not have a good view from our room, but we didn't go to Galveston to stay in our room. We would stay here again.

      PU

      from

      the veiw was nice but nothing else,the halls smelt of mildew and the carpet was stained.

      The old comfort inn was great!

      from

      We stayed at the old Comfort Inn at 23rd and seawalls the weekend of Oct 3rd.

      The view from our private blacony was fantastic and the service was very good and staff was friendly. The room itself was huge and well furnished with a microwave and little fridge too. The location is very good. We brought our 2 daughters and they loved it also. In short, i feel we got a $200 room for $85 and we will definately stay there again. Im sorry some of the other posters before me didnt find it ideal, but for the price we really loved it. Maybe going in the off season is better?

      New Comfort Inn

      from

      We stayed at the Comfort Inn. There are two but we stayed at the new one. Everything was great. Very clean and courteous staff. Will stay again.

      Convenient and Affordable

      from

      Being from hot and dry North Texas, a great one night place to stay is Comfort Inn on Seawald Blvd. This Comfort Inn is one of two Comfort Inns on Seawall. This hotel is the oldest one of the two but a guest has amenities like hair dryers, iron and ironing board, in -room coffee machine, free newspaper, good ice machines, lighted parking, and friendly, helpful desk ckerks. The air conditioning was wonderful and the linens and bath were very clean.A 6-9 a.m. breakfast consists of cereal and milk, juices, coffee, and delicious muffins. This Comfort Inn is so close to good restaurants, Interstate 45, and the Galveston historic district. The ocean can be seen from every room which has a balcony with chairs. A guest can just walk across Seawall Blvd. to get to the beach.Granted, this Comfort Inn is not a Hilton but then..we didn't feel like we were making a mortgage payment for just a night.

      Had troubles too

      from

      My husband & I stayed two nights in Jan. 2003. When I called (both the

      800 number & the hotel directly) I was assured our credit card would be

      processed, & our suite ready for us, when we arrived at 10am. The young

      man at the hotel spoke english, but not alot, and I don't speak

      spanish. Needless to say the mgr never got the message to run the

      credit card in advance. So when we had not arrived by 7am they

      cancelled our reservations. When the woman behind the counter said she

      could get us into a room with no problem, she also added, "but not at

      the rate you had, only the mgr can approve that." We came dragging in

      from our first cruise, ready to call home, and then get some rest, I

      was not in the mood for this. Luckily my husband handled it by asking

      for the Mgr. We ended up with a mini suit on the top floor w/a balcony

      (covered in broken glass) & ocean view, only to discover the phone

      didn't work. After 3 failed attempts to get the phone replaced & the

      glass swept up, my husband, again, got it done for me. (He's a business

      man & has a way with people...like he said, it's not like it was the

      busy time of the year, can't they take care of the few customers they

      have?)

      The 'Free Breakfast' consists of one gallon of milk for the whole place, one gal of OJ, & dry muffins. (which the birds loved to eat on the balcony, but we couldn't handle them, even with coffee.)

      We couldn't recall one time ever hearing, "Thank you", or any apologies either. We did hear a lot of excuses though.

      We are returning to Galveston in Aug., but we will NOT be staying here.

      Rude/Nasty

      from

      When I made my reservations I asked for a room with ocean view. Which the person taking my reservations assured me every room has a view. Well when we checked in our children ran to the curtain to open it up and see the beach and there was a brick wall. That was our view. I went down and they gave me another key. We got to our 2nd room and it smelt of pee. The air was broke, the room was musty and smelled of pee. The view was good...but you couldn't stand the smell. So we change rooms AGAIN...get in our 3rd room and the TV doesn't work. So we change rooms again. Out of all this trouble and changing rooms this many times I didn't get not one apology or anything. I emailed this hotel when we returned and wrote them a letter. Still Nothing!! I would not suggest anyone stay in this hotel. It is not worth the price they charge.

      Avoid Like The Plague

      from

      I stayed here with my family of five. Admittedly, I didn't do much research. I thought I was getting a good price, but I later learned that I could have gotten more for my money. We had to move rooms 3 times. The air condition didn't work well in either of the rooms we were in. The rooms stank severly. There were stains on the carpet & comforter. Only stay here if you are on a tight budget or plan on just partying and don't want to feel guilty about vomiting on the floor.

We stopped by and saw a couple of bison (fenced in) a a couple hawks (also caged). Today at one point as we were crossing on a boardwalk when I actually saw a snake right beside Karen. I said "SNAKE!" and Karen said "WHERE?" but it sounded more like "WAH-HARE?" as she was high-stepping around in a circle. It was quite funny. ...

      CHAPTER 03

      GALVESTON OH GALVESTON



      We had a lovely Chinese meal with Henry and Gloria last night, had a long talk and learned a lot about the history of Texas. I found out that Texas was actually an independent country in its own right. The Republic of Texas existed from March 1836 until February 1846. It formed as a nation after gaining independence from Mexico. It became a State of the USA ...

After the film we were then granted access to another exhibit. Highlights in here was a Mercury and Apollo space capsule, and an exhibit featuring the Skylab exercise, crew area. After that we went through to an area where you could actually touch a piece of moon rock. Apparently moon rock ...

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. ...

      Feb 15 - Rainforest Pyramid; Pelican Island

      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 - ...
