The San Luis Resort Spa and Conference Center

The San Luis Resort Spa and Conference Center Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This 16-story, 30-acre resort is located across the street from the beach on Galveston Island. For families, there's a kids' club, and free-form pool with fun waterslide that shoots guests into a smaller heated pool. For adults, there's a swim-up bar, secluded grotto Jacuzzi overlooking the water, and a 21-plus lounge offering poker, darts and billiards. The 10th floor, dubbed Club Ten, is higher end and adults only: Rooms here have rich, sophisticated decor with lots of dark wood and leather, classy artwork, and sleek bathrooms with flat-screen TVs in the mirrors. In regular rooms, the decor is either contemporary or a cheerful country style. Business travelers may also choose to stay here for the 200,000 square feet of on-site meeting space, and the proximity to the convention center.
Hotel Galvez & Spa, A Wyndham Grand Hotel

Hotel Galvez & Spa, A Wyndham Grand Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

One of the most luxurious properties in Galveston, this hotel has more of a romantic vibe than one suited for families. Features include a refined restaurant, a beautiful spa with outdoor whirlpools, and simple, beachy rooms with comfy beds and modern amenities; it lacks a kids' club. The standout here is the pool. Surrounded by vine-covered columns, it has a whirlpool and swim-up bar, or guests can opt for poolside drink service from attendants. Getting to the beach requires crossing a sometimes busy road, but this four-pearl property offers a solid bang for the buck with generally reasonable rates considering the fresh, modern look and plethora of amenities.
The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel

The Tremont House, A Wyndham Grand Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Built in 1839, the upscale 114-room Tremont Hotel, offering sophisticated (if a tad tired) common areas, is centrally located in the Strand Historic District. It includes a casual on-site cafe that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a spacious rooftop bar for cocktails. Rooms are open and bright, with modern amenities and traditional furnishings, and a number of ballrooms and meeting rooms are available for functions and events. The hotel offers a free shuttle around the island as well as to its sister property, the Hotel Galvez, which includes a spa and is close to the beach. While Tremont House has beautiful historic architecture and high ceilings, it can be noisy and appear worn in areas.
Moody Gardens Hotel Spa & Convention Center

Moody Gardens Hotel Spa & Convention Center Rating: 3.5 Pearls

A huge, sprawling property attached to a water park, zoo, aquarium, golf course, and convention center, the busy Moody Gardens Hotel Spa & Convention Center is a resort-style hotel with a wide variety of amenities and activities. It doesn't quite live up to its four-star status, but it's a solid value considering the lovely rooms and features. The property has 418 rooms along with a spa, several on-site restaurants and bars, and an assortment of ballrooms and meeting spaces. Free Wi-Fi and self-parking are nice perks. The hotel includes both indoor and outdoor heated pools along with a large fitness center, and while the beach and historic district are both nearby, the property is so large that guests might find it easier to take the free hotel shuttle or drive rather than trying to walk anywhere.
Holiday Inn Resort Galveston - On the Beach

Holiday Inn Resort Galveston - On the Beach Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This Holiday Inn on the beach of Galveston Island is a comfortable mid-range option across the street from the beach. The rooms are contemporary, with red accent walls, and each of the gulf-view rooms has a private balcony (though seating consists of cheap plastic chairs). Bathrooms have pretty granite sinks, but are otherwise unexceptional, with tile floors and shower/tub combos. Suites are spacious with extra living and dining spaces, and each has a small kitchenette with a mini-fridge, sink, coffeemaker, and microwave. The hotel features a lounge that provides live weekend entertainment, as well as a basic restaurant for meals. The big outdoor pool (with designated kids' area) is located in an outdoor courtyard with palm trees and uncomfortable plastic lounge chairs. It's a bit nicer than the pool at the Four Points by Sheraton, but Four Points has a slightly better fitness center and more central location.
Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort

Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This condo-style Holiday Inn wows with its rooms; it may be a mid-range property, but even standard rooms verge on being upscale with attractive, beachy decor throughout (picture a blue-and-beige color scheme with up-to-date amenities such as flat-screen TVs with DVD players and free Wi-Fi). Bathrooms are a bit small in some rooms, but all units include fully-equipped kitchenettes and separate living areas. Features are less impressive; though it provides direct beach access (some nearby properties require crossing a busy street to reach the same), the fitness center and outdoor pool are both small, and there's no restaurant. Kids will likely enjoy the game room and basketball court. The four-pearl San Luis Resort often has similar rates, but offers a more modern fitness center and pool, as well as several dining options.
Four Points by Sheraton Galveston

Four Points by Sheraton Galveston Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The mid-range Four Points by Sheraton overlooks the Gulf of Mexico -- a major draw for travelers. On-site amenities -- including a modern fitness center and outdoor pool -- are solid for a mid-range hotel, and the beach (bordered by the historic Galveston Sea Wall) is right across the street. The hotel is clean and well kept, with an appealing lobby featuring colorful striped carpets and modern chairs. Photography depicting the Texan landscape done by local artists adds a warm touch. The chain-like rooms have comfortable beds; modern amenities such flat-screen TVs, microwaves, and mini-fridges; and private balconies, though the views vary (and some views aren't great). All-white bathrooms are simple and clean, with shower/tub combos. The hotel features an on-site restaurant and lounge, though guests might consider walking to other nearby bars and restaurants to sample local seafood.
The Galvestonian

The Galvestonian Rating: 3.0 Pearls

With reasonable rates and a location right on the sand (versus being across the street, as many nearby hotels are), The Galvestonian is an extremely popular mid-range option. Most who stay here are families taking advantage of the condo-style units which have full kitchens and balconies with ocean views. Decor and layout varies greatly from room to room as they are individually owned. Although it lacks a kids' club or a long list of activities, the property does have a nice pool area as well as well-kept tennis courts and a small fitness center. Fee for use of fire pits and beach chairs are an annoyance, and there's no restaurant, but most guests seem to be content to make dinner in their rooms or cookout on the communal grills.
