Pretty decent place to stay.
My wife and I stayed here last week and were very satisfied with our room, the staff, and the accomodations. It is not the Ritz, but your not paying those kind of prices. It is a little shabby around the edges but worked for us. For a motel on the seawall, we thought it was just fine. It was a lot quieter than I expected being so near the highway.
Very Nice Hotel
We recently took a cruise and stayed before leaving at the Best westrn.
This was a great find! We had never stayed at a Best Western before but the price was right so we gave it a try - we were very surprised! The rooms were clean - the pool was heated - they had a good breakfast and best of all, they allowed us to park our car there for 11 days for free while we were on the cruise. Keep up the good work guys! We'll be back.
We were disappointed in our room as it was to be a non smoking room.
However the smell was offensive. It was like they made it a non smoking room for that night only. Our clothes stank fro days after, and my allergies acted up .It was also to be a room with a view of the ocean, but only if you want to step out of the door and look around the corner.The complimentary breakfast was frozen bagels and no fruit.I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Godd value for the price
We stayed for 2 nights nights at the Beachfront Inn prior to our cruise the rate of $45 for Friday night & $55 for Saturday was great. We had a large Claen room with a kingsize bed that was very comfortable. The contential breakfast was disappointing. There were too many people , not enough tables and chairs to sit and they were consatntly running out of juice, milk or coffee. I would have like some fruit on the menu.
Also found no one around after 10 PM, Office closed- to get change to finish my was and the conveient laudry located on the premses.
Thankfully there is a large Groceries store across the road to get change, fruit, softdrinks and pahrmacy items.Good accomodations for the price.
Good stay, horrible management
The first stay was uneventful, except for very dirty windows in breakfast area, and the pool being filthy. Guest were allowed to party buy the pool past closing, and was very loud....They did correct that on a timley manner. Second attempt to stay prior to our cruise, the manager played a shell game on the room prices...It seemed the room rate was acceptable and I contacted all of our parties (4 couples) that the Beachfront was on and to make reservations. Within hours the price had jumped into 3 digits because a cheerleading squad was booking. $60 to $75 is a fair price for this motel No more. Get your conformation faxed or e-mailed or you may be in for aa suprise if something better comes along for them..." 4 couples in Arkansas
I Enjoyed My Stay
I spent two wonderful weeks at Bestwestern and had a wonderful time, I was skeptical at first reading some of the reviews but firsthand experience prove to me that Bestwestern is a wonderful place to stay, the staff was nice, room was tidy ontime and everything prepared, you could rest assure that you have clean stuff and a clean room to go back to after you tour the city. Thanks Bestwestern for your hospitality
When we checked in at Best Western the room we were given was in unsanitary condition. There were a lot of mold on the walls, carpets, and in the bathroom. The air in the room was so stuffy and damp that you could fall faint or have a heart attack. It took us three hours to get another room, because the staff was initially reluctant to move us in another room. This was unbeliveable given that the hotel was rated as 3 stars.
Our family has just returned from our vacation in Galveston, Texas. We had the most exciting and wonderful time ever. We truly enjoyed the experience and cannot wait to go back again next year. They have such beautiful beaches, the kids really enjoyed themselves there. We stayed at the Best Western Beachfront Motel, best motel ever. Really enjoyed staying there, they really made us feel welcome. The trip to Moody Gardens was the best experience of all. They had so much for the kids to do. That turned out to be an all day experience we will never forget. We enjoyed the IMAX 3-D movie that evening. Just can't wait to get back there again for the next vacation. We enjoyed it so much that we may go off and on for a couple of weekends just to visit there again.Super time, Rev. Miller
Great deal for the money
We read a review on TripAdvisor for this motel, saying it was clean and close to the beach. Turned out to be true! We stayed over spring break for a ridiculously cheap rate. The pool was clean; the bathroom was clean; the sheets were clean; the free breakfast was okay (no fresh fruit and milk was sporadic after 9:00 a.m.); the desk was friendly; the housekeeping was prompt. This motel is on the seawall and there is some covered parking. They offer free parking to cruise ship passengers who spend the night before boarding at the motel. The rooms were remodeled and although they take hard use, we'd recommend this place to everyone as a good deal for the money that is consistent and clean. We'll go back as often as we can for a budget vacation.

Well, the day arrived and I was off with anticipation. I was going to do a VIP tour of NASA. My hosts and guides Gabe and David were amazing - especially Gabe The tour took 5 hours and I turned up at the Centre, was given my Pass and briefing. The two guys met me there, and we were off. Phase 1 - we looked at the Saturn rocket. This thing is huge and I stood in ore at it- I could not believe that the 3 parts of the rocket are incompatible with one another, and ...
Today I woke at 230 and could not get back to sleep. I fiddled around a bit on my computer and finally nodded off again. At 9 I decided to hit the town - well sort of. There are not too many shops here. Mostly Electronics and NASA, but I did manage to find a housing development that I waked around. That was kind of fun to look at the houses that they think are normal over here - they are massive. ...
... Peninsula. Looked at Gilchrist, that had been wiped out by Hurricane Ike in 2008. Now rebuilt, with all homes built on stilts high above ground. Caught the FREE ferry to Galveston. First ferry since Ireland! Drove to Johnson Space Centre. Did tram tour that took us to the original Mission Control used for Apollo programs, ( like being on the set of "Apollo 13".) and then to the Saturn V rocket shed. Apparently this rocket ...
Received confirmation today (July 11th, 2013) that our good friend Dale has passed through customs and will be boarding his new home this evening! Post was made for July 5th as this is the day we dropped off our dear friend at the port in Galveston.
Next stop for the car: Guayaquil, Ecuador.
... because someone used it online in Canada to buy flowers (she had told them she was going to be away, so they determined it was fraudulent use). Her other card (Mastercard) was declined when she tried to use it, and when she tried to call Mastercard, they said they are doing a system upgrade and couldn't check her information (odd??). Ryan has a card that they are using now, but they are somewhat concerned. :(
