    Location and view

    I got a call on our first night and was asked why my luggage was in another guest room. They signed me in at 731 and gave me keys to 728. They went in my room when I was out to dinner found my business card and called me once they found out who I was. I felt violated that I was asked why I was in the room they gave me keys for and had it written on my envelope with my name on it too! They said it was a clerical error and I could stay in my room. I went right to the front desk after my return and got new keys made just in case. They next day the pool was closed for 2 hours. They asked everyone to get out of the pool and started pouring chlorine into the water with children standing right next to it. One child with asthma was coughing and vomiting right after he smelled it. They were just pouring it in as people were still getting out of the pool. My husband was the LAST to leave because his back turned as he was sitting at the pool bar in the WATER as they were pouring in the chlorine! He made it out safely but he could have got a chemical burn. We always have breakfast at the hotel but some of the newer staff clearly had issues with what to do and how to wait on people, just not a good waitress. The older staff I have seen for years did a great job, the new staff was clueless. On our second day they made our room and we had no towels. I called for towels and they brought them up within minutes, great job, and called to make sure we had them. I understand it is hard to run a hotel at full capacity and I love this hotel and stay in it all the time when in town but this was just one bad staff decision after another. Please fix these staffing issues and I will be back soon.

    Beds, bath, service, location

    Without previous notice they charged my card $100 for incidentals. $9 pina coladas. Expensive food. Room location (parking lot view)

    My room was extremely clean!!! 5th floor ocean view was great. Room service staff , and kitchen staff were top notch, and very fast. Again I can't stress enough how extremely clean every inch of the room was. Best sleep I have had in a long time. I plan to stay again in the future. I have stayed in several hotels in the sea wall. This beats them all. The cost was not over the top either. I am usually a very grumpy person and hard to please. I can't find anything bad to say about my stay.

    Don't change a thing

    The Lobby staff was great, in helping with my new iPad and how to send documents. I was happily surprised to learn of the FREE internet access/computers and printer that is available to guest in the lobby area.

    The Pool water was not crystal clear, and the pool-man didn't brush it down very long in the mornings during our stay. Last year we stayed at Hilton Galveston and the Pool looked great.

    Very good

    The room service experience was excellent. Huge improvement. As always, staff was VERY friendly. Pool service was great too.

    Decor has improved but still very dated. I understand the reason for us to sign for pool towels, but you need a better solution.

    Good

    The price was way to high and wasn't what I was expecting. Pictures make room and pool look bigger. Also, lazy river isn't really a lazy river. It's just a curved pool. It is pretty but very disappointed in price for what I was expecting. The ocean view with balcony is really only a partial view. I asked for high floor but got second floor.

    Superb

    Wonderful rooms! Such a great beds and balconies with a view, some you can sit out on other rooms still have fantastic views. LOVE the pool area, and love the DJ!!

    One of the bartenders there is not very pleasant at all. I have stayed at this hotel twic in the last month and half and both times she seemed very agitated.

    The view was fantastic! Also the bedding was outstanding!!!! Best night sleep I've had in a long time:)

    There was a red stain in the bath tub upon arrival that looked like blood. I rinsed it out and placed the shower floor slip pad over it because it would not rinse off.
