We chose the Lost Bayou mostly for it's location which is centered on the island and away from the seawall with it's partying rep. It is in a residential neighborhood that has a bit of urban decay, but for the most part is well kept. We walked through the streets at night for at least a mile or so to... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lost Bayou the night before we left on a cruise at the end of April. We arrived slightly before 4pm and our room was ready so we were able to check in. Dave let us borrow the bikes and we rode over to The Strand for dinner. We stayed in the Elissa Room,... More

We stayed here for a little one night anniversary getaway, and we could not have been more pleased. The house is a lovely 1890s treat, the breakfast is delicious, but the real treasures here are the hosts. David and Maria are warm and welcoming people.

We booked 2 nights in January for a short getaway, based upon TA reviews. The inn is spotless and well located to both the seawall and the strand. The first night we were there it was cold (in the 50s) and windy. We were in one of the rooms on the top floor and were cold from when we entered... More

Enjoyed a weekend in Galveston and a night stay at Lost Bayou Guesthouse for my birthday. We have stayed at a lot of B&B's and several B&B's in Galveston.
