Made last minute plans and was able to get a room at a great rate.
I ended up with a room at the front of the hotel and above the pool. So I had somewhat of a beach view (there is another hotel in front of this one, but you can still see the beach).
Room was clean, pool looked clean but never made it there, common areas clean, friendly staff day and night. Standard free breakfast.
Surrounding areas felt safe, parking lot felt safe (big deal for solo female traveler). I didn't worry when coming back in late at nite.
Located on the west end so it's not near The Strand or bars or restaurants on Seawall, however it's not a huge island, it doesn't take long to get anywhere. It is close to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. Not walking distance but nearby.
I was very pleased and will stay again!
(Most of the hotels have a convenient and cute island map that's cartoonish. It shows places to eat and areas to visit. Pick one up at the front desk for several bucks. It's helpful.)

We took a short 3 night 4 day vacation before school started for the kids to have a little fun and I was very happy with my choice in this hotel. When we arrived we were on the third floor of the newer building so I did ask to change to a bottom floor balcony building and the front desk clerk changed us with no problem at all. They have a nice pool and mini golf for everyone and it was just a really pretty place.
The Young man at the check-in counter was extremely accommodating and did everything to make our stay a great experience. We had a great breakfast and would return again when in the area. We had a view of the ocean and nice large room.
