"Great hotel, location & warm and Friendly Stafc"

We took 3 of our grandchildren to Sea World and stayed at this friendly, super clean hotel. The room was fresh and very clean upon our arrival which we’d been greeted by a wonderful staff crew. The pool is indoors which is great as the Texas summers are hot! There’s a nice deck with a view if you want to sunbathe. There breakfast is hot and fresh with many options to satisfy all eaters! It’s just far enough away from Sea World that to be away from packed restaurants nearby those hotels. We look forward in returning to this hotel again in the future as we have Sea World season passes.

1. realized I wasn't going to get there before 6 so called to make sure my room was confirmed for late arrival. No way to get through to this hotel. Either no one answered the phone at all or it said press one for the operator, then sent you back to the same message telling you to press one for the operator. No way to get a human. Called the 800# call center in India or wherever and the broken-English speaking call rep couldn't find my reservation and also couldn't get through to the hotel. After 20 minutes I just hung up. 2. Upon arrival I tell the front desk person (who I think was the manager) about my phone experience. She replies that she's heard that from a couple of other guests. No apology, no indication that she gave a S. They did still have my room but I wish they hadn't. 3. While checking in there is a policeman there interviewing a maid who a guest had accused of stealing something. 4. The lobby was full of equipment and in disarray. Clearly a re-model was taking place. We'll call this red--flag number 4 and shame on me for not leaving already. 5. Room on floor 3, get off elevator, turn left--there is my room and immediately past my room is a tarp blocking off the rest of the hallway. I look behind it and see scaffolding and equipment. Clearly no -wake-up call needed tomorrow! 6. I wake up at 8:15 to the sound of jack-hammer in the parking lot outside my room. 7. The hotel is being remodeled so even the parts that aren't under construction are all mucked up with drywall pieces and stuff the workers have tracked in. 9. I go to ask for another room perhaps farther away from all the work being done. While I'm waiting the guy in front of me is complaining that his room is infested with ants and asking for another room. I go back to my room, figuring that noise is preferable to bugs. 8. Even the toiletries they provide are just a hodge podge of stuff. No 2 items are the same packaging or even the same brand. 9. Overheard another guest checking in at 6:15 PM and his room wasn’t ready yet. 10. Heading out the next morning and saw a hooker getting shooed off by Po Po. 11. Buckets in the lobby to catch roof leaks. This hotel is an embarrassment to the HIE brand. I always stay there because the experience is consistent. I'm guessing this one is owned by a super cheapskate who cuts every corner and won't close the hotel during a remodel. Corporate needs to get involved in this one because this hotel is damaging their brand. If you're coming to SA, stay anywhere else but here.

"Nice stay"

Our stay was during Spring break and it was good. Our check in was smooth and quick. They were some repairs being done in the lobby area. The room itself was clean and spacious with all the appropriate necessities. The water pressure in the shower, that is a different story. We were in 3rd floor! If you shower in spray mode, it takes forever to finish. If you use the regular flow, well,you will shower close to the wall but will finish quickly. As far as the breakfast goes, if you can't go down, don't worry you will not miss out. The selection is very limited . The coffee was probably the only good thing. The parking fills up quickly because it's sort of small and the repair crew takes up some of the spots as well. Overall, the stay was fine for the price.

Good personnel at all times for the 24 hour period I was there. Room was clean, bed was ultra comfy. Parking great. Elevators were semi small. Cleanliness = Venetian Vegas , no joke. However, fitness room needs a serious wipe down. Breakfast mini omelets were yummy! Would recommend.

"Breakfast good, room needed work."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed June 27, 2018
When I arrived, the front light in the room wouldn’t work as well as the main floor lamp. So, the room was extra dark. Only the bedside lamps worked. Also, it was difficult to turn the water to where there was hot water. If the water was warm enough, the water pressure was pretty bad (a light sprinkle). I was too tired to call for repairs late in the night and I only stayed one night. My kids liked the look of the pool and both commented on liking the breakfast. The breakfast area and lobby seem to have been updated, but not the rooms or hallway carpeting on the other floors.
