Was not given the room that was described on Expedia site. No parking at times. Bathroom lights flickered or off most of time. Bed was terrible- mattress had trench in the middle. Commode flushed only if held handle down. Was told by front desk employee that if there was no place to park it was my problem—to just park on street!! Valet parking was not available!! Was not told that we had to ask to have room freshened. I won’t use Expedia again nor this hotel ( Galvez Hotel and Spa Galveston texas)

The last time stayed here Hurricane Alicia tore the place apart. This time we checked in on Sunday, Hurricane Nicholas checked in on Monday. The hotel held up nicely but lost power for 2 days. I asked for a fan but they never sent one, luckily the clouds kept the temp down. Many of the amenities were unavailable, the pool and gym were out of commission. But they have bicycles you can use so we biked the seawall. Dining was great the first couple of times, bad the third (probably the Chef's day off). Waiters were not friendly, just doing their job. Unusual, Texas is full of friendly people. I was upset most with parking, a gate fell on my car because it wasn't secured after the storm blew it down. And they wanted to charge for parking - which was never mentioned while checking in. Staff just said to park there. Parking was never secure - were always open and didn't lock. The lady at checkout was rude. But the hotel is nice. It was undergoing renovations The pool was nice for the 1 day we could use it.

Our stay started off a bit rocky. This was a family trip, so we three people in our party: my wife, our 8yo, and myself. I had booked a PURE room with a king, which is what we normally do; the kid sleeps on the sofa/pullout and we sleep in the bed. Check-in went fine, but when we got to the room, we discovered the sofa in the room was a weird deco piece, nobody could sleep on it. Back down at the front desk, we were told that "sleeps 3" means "in the King bed"! Totally unacceptable answer, of course. But they did "upgrade" us to a room with two double beds after a bit of discussion. Being honest, I did not like the way I was treated, which is best described as "this guy must be poor". I would happily have paid for better rooms, but they didn't bother offering anything, and when I asked about suites they didn't even answer the question. Anyhow, the new room was not a PURE room, and in fact, smelled damp and wet. No amount of running the AC resolved this over the next few days, either. But it was functionally acceptable, otherwise. Honestly, the rest of the stay was pretty good. The restaurant had better than decent food. The pool was very nice. Some of the staff was super friendly, some of it didn't make us feel welcome at all, so that was a mixed bag. Overall, I'm not sure we'll stay there next time. The location is good, but location isn't everything. Oh! I should note that Expedia is the one that says the rooms sleep 3-4. The Galvez site says 2, I believe.
