3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is nice and the staff very helpful and pleasant, but the "pure air" room was a disappointment. It smelled musty and moldy, and since you can't open a window, your kind or trapped. Also the restaurant food quality was not good. We had fish and chips and the fish was undercooked and it must have been frozen because... More

This is the oldest hotel in Galveston. There are no real amenities here. The hotel was very clean & quiet. The downside is that it is pricey. They made sure we got a room with a view & it was wonderful.

Aniversary weekend getaway. Was presently surprised with the acomadations. The room was small but very nice and comfortable. The pool was nice, but drinks were a little pricey. Would definitely return again. Overall a good experience.

Hotel is beautiful and staff is very helpful. With the deception of the restaurant. Came for dinner Friday night. It wasn't very busy wen we arrived. Hostess was kind and attentive but by 45 minutes, the only person who had refilled anything was the hostess. We had ordered food but had not reviewed appetizers or bread or refills of a... More

Absolutely gorgeous hotel across the street from the beach. Steeped in history with tales of ghostly hauntings I can not say enough great things about this hotel. The pool area is lushly landscaped and provides great service. I had a spa treatment that provided first class service. I had a " tea spritzer" which included a coconut sugar scrub, coconut... More

Rooms were really small for the price! Pool was beautiful but locked up at 11:00 pm too early by the time we ate and were ready to enjoy the pool it was locked. Food was ok but expensive. Staff was nice. Parking 17.00 a night also! 28.00 for 2 drinks!

Our family of four were treated warmly and allowed to check in to our room as soon as we arrived. While the room was small, we knew that when we booked and wouldn't expect anything else from an historic hotel such as the Galvez. It was very clean and the bedding was lovely. We went right to the pool area... More
