Residence Inn at Fossil Creek – Fort Worth, TX

My thoughts on the Residence Inn at Fossil Creek…

Good points:
Your rate includes a free breakfast.
They have a nice, clean pool and hot tub.
There are a lot of good restaurants within one mile.
Suites have a kitchen with dishwasher if you want to cook.
There is a gas grill available for use.

Bad points:
My room was not so clean.
There was mildew in the bath tub and on the shower curtain.
They didn’t vacuum behind furniture
The General Manager didn’t return my phone calls very promptly.

I wouldn’t stay there again.


Harbor House – Galveston, TX

If you are a beach bum, The Harbor House is not for you. This is a charming little 42 room inn located on the Port of Galveston in the Strand District, quite a distance from the waterfront.

This lovely hotel features nautical inspired guest rooms, and every room has a wonderful view of Galveston Bay. The staff was friendly, entertaining and made us feel at home. The room was very comfortable, with beautiful wooden ceiling,  nice colors and artwork on the walls. Our bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and the view of Galveston Harbor was really cool.

A complementary continental breakfast is served daily. The shops and restaurants of the Strand are within walking distance, as are the ports for cruise-boarding. We would stay here again if we were returning to Galveston.
