Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RLoustalet Great stay in Galveston
We enjoyed the Candlewood Suites. It is right off the highway as you come onto the island, but we did not hear any traffic noise--our room was on the back side.
Most of the staff that we dealt with were really great. Unless you are a walker, it is tough to get to attractions from here without a car. I did walk down 61st Street to the seawall and it took me 40 minutes. Not a bad walk, just hot. We bought groceries at the Target next door, so that was convenient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark C. S. Good Night Sleep and Courteous Staff
My wife who needed a good night sleep was able to get one due to the Candlewood. Due to the fact it is not so close to where all the noise is on the island, she was able to sleep for a long time.
Ali and the young lady who worked in the evening was very courteous and they went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.
What also made the place convenient, there is a Super Target within walking distance.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cruise 2014 Shabby and rude employee
We stayed one night on June 5, before leaving for our cruise the following day. The shower head in the restroom was broken and taped to the wall. The water was cold, so we couldn't take a shower. We complained to the girl at the front desk (Shelly) about these issues. She was so rude and when we asked to talk to a manager, she said there wasn't one. We told her to at least give us a discount for the inconvenience and she said we had to pay the full price, which was $250. At that price, we could of stayed at a presentable and suitable hotel. Save your money and stay somewhere else.
