Beautiful B&B in Galveston! A must for animal lovers; bunny sanctuary is gorgeous, nice little dove atrium and resident cats are all friendly :-) Marcy was a great person to meet and told the amazing history upon check-in of the B&B. Interior is gorgeous and guest room/suites are absolutely comfortable. Breakfast was great in the morning and Marcy stayed and... More

Based on the favorable reviews and the B&B’s proximity to the Grand 1894 Opera House (where we went for a concert), we selected the Victorian B&B Inn for our weekend in Galveston. As mentioned, the location is excellent – just blocks from the Strand and all its restaurants, shops and attractions. We stayed in the Zacary’s suite, which was very... More

The Victorian Inn is a beautifully restored Victorian home just east of downtown Galveston and one mile from the beach. The common rooms are beautifully appointed and yet invite visitors to relax and enjoy the space. We have stayed in two of the guest rooms, and like the rest of the house, they were gorgeous and immaculate. Marcy Hanson, is... More

My husband and I wanted to have a quick weekend getaway and I searched out B and B's in Galveston. The reviews I had read were all 5 star, so I booked it for two nights. The Victorian Inn is the most relaxing, beautiful, and well run B and B ever ! The owner/ operator, Marcy, tends to your every... More

It has Victorian charm written all over it and is very spacious with two bedrooms, a living room and a nice bathroom. We absolutely loved this gem and we loved Marcy. She made us feel so welcome, assisted us by... More

This was our first B & B and what a treat it was! The location was nice and quiet and Marcy was wonderful and very informative about the Inn and all its beautiful things! She even made our dinner reservations at a nice, local restaurant with really good food! We will definitely stay here again! Thank you, Marcy!! :)

Just stayed here for the second time and totally love it. Marcy is so friendly and helpful and her home is beautiful. She truly makes you feel at home in this grand old Galveston jewel. It is easy walking distance to all the Strand has to offer and plenty of parking at the house. We stayed on the top floor... More

This B & B is one of the most charming places we have ever stayed. Our hostess, Marcy is just wonderful and welcoming. She makes you feel like family! We highly recommend The Victorian Inn to anyone that wants a quiet and restful time. By the way, the bunny retreat is fabulous and Marcy is an awesome cook!

There may be " no place like home" but Victorian Inn comes very close. My husband and I LOVE Galveston and ALWAYS stay at the Victorian Inn because of Marcy and the wonderful treatment she offers. The bunny sanctuary and wonderful atmosphere is relaxing and provides a romantic escape for us. Our latest trip was to hear the Oak Ridge... More

Our stay here was definitely the most memorable hotel/bed & breakfast stays to date. Marcy, the owner has great passion in her mansion and what she does and her southern hospitality shows it. Her home was so comfortable and inviting and we can't wait to visit her again. It is a short walk to the strand and we felt very... More
