Very pleasantly charmed by this place. You do feel you are somewhere special when you check in. We stayed in Mauney's suite. The bed was super lush.There was a nice fireplace that kept our room warm and cozy. Our room had an attached bathroom and a screened in porch that was great for a cup of coffee in the morning....

I was introduced to the Victorian Inn and Marcy about three years ago and I keep returning each year. It is hard to add to all the excellent reviews to date and I completely agree with them. Marcy, the hostess, is a friendly, caring and very interesting lady. Be sure to ask about her adventures after Hurricane Ike! Her breakfasts... More

I'm not big on B & B's but this was a wonderful, elegant place for our weekend visit to the Island. The building structure is over 100 years old and in perfect repair with beautiful furniture and period antiques yet it was quiet and comfortable as opposed to other B & B's where I have stayed. Tree carvings and bunny... More

B&Bs are our preferred lodging when we travel so we have a lot of experience with these across the country. We just stayed at the Victorian Inn in Galveston for a medical school reunion in Galveston. The mansion is one block over from where I lived as a medical student in Galveston. This is truly a very special place. The... More

An exquisite place to stay – we spend a lot of time on the big porch when we visit.. Marcy is the perfect hostess – and makes killer breakfasts. All rooms are great – The Inn is within walking distance to the Original Mexican Inn, the Sunflower Bakery, the Strand, and the Seawall (less than a mile away).

My husband and I stayed here for our 6th anniversary on a weekend trip to the island. The Victorian Inn is a gorgeous historic home full of original fireplaces, floors and carved wood work plus added antiques and furnishings yet it is warm and comfortable. We stayed in Laura's room which was full of charm and quite nice. The bed... More

We stayed here prior to a cruise last year and it was just a little piece of heaven. Our check in was quick and painless, the room was so cute! Breakfast was included and it was very tasty with lots of different options to choose from. We were able to leave our car parked for the week while on the... More

Four friends really enjoyed our weekend at this bed and breakfast. It is a beautiful house with a beautiful hostess. We had the third floor suite, 2 bedrooms, private bathroom and living room. This is the only suite on this floor. It is a long climb, but worth it. The house has quite a history surviving two major hurricanes and... More

The place is great; beautiful garden, excellent breakfast and close to most everything in old Galveston making it easy to walk to lunch or dinner. can not wait... More

My wife and I spent the night in the Garden Apartment at the Victorian Inn before sailing out of Galveston on an anniversary cruise and had a wonderfuly time. Marcy is a fantastic host, the property is beautiful, and breakfast was delicious. She even let us leave our car parked on the curb while we were at sea, saving us... More
