We stayed in condo 1015 for Labor Day weekend and really enjoyed the condo. It had 3 bedrooms and 2 baths (3 baths would have been nice but I wouldn't trade it for the view!). One bedroom had a king with ensuite with tub/shower; and one had twin beds. Both had a tiny balcony overlooking the marsh/port side. The third... More

This was my first trip to Galveston in many many years and I was delighted my group chose this beautiful property for us to stay. There were about 28 of us on the 12th floor and it was perfect. Every room I visited was very well decorated and clean and they all had gorgeous views of a pristine beach that... More

My two sisters and I had a great sisters getaway this past weekend at The Galvestonian. The condo was perfect....beautifully decorated, clean, well-stocked kitchen, balcony looking out over the ybeach.....I could go on and on. After going into town and seeing the crowds, we felt so spoiled coming back to the peace and quiet of our hotel. The pool and... More

Our first stay here was ideal. After Labor Day so very very quiet, the beach was deserted and peaceful. The entire staff was friendly and the maid service excellent. I would have appreciated a door for handicapped at the entrance but that was minor. Everything you might want to do is close by. Will definitely stay here again.

We always have a good time at the Galvestonian and so do all the other people that we see. Everyone from babies to the senior set enjoy it in their own way. The East Beach location is like an oasis from the busier parts of the island, but you are extremely close to all the good restaurants downtown, or UTMB... More

My husband and I have been coming to The Galvestonian for 20 years. It is secluded on the East end of the island which makes the beach private and not congested. The staff is outstanding and friendly. They are on top of everything at all times to ensure an outstanding stay. The beach is raked every morning. The flowers and... More

They had all we needed in the kitchen. Beach was so nice. Activities for the kids everyday. We loved it and definitely will be... More

We have been to Galveston a few times and decided to do a quick weekend away before school started. We picked this location because of the reviews and the prices were inline with the more expensive hotels. I thought is was a bit pricy, but decided to give it a shot. Wow - we were blown away. The location was... More

The first time I stayed we had a wonderful room. Our room we had this time was very dirty. When we checked in they told us dishwasher was out and would be fixed the next day, never heard anything else about it for the 5 days we were there. Front desk seems to be unclear about what the maids do.... More

We spent three lovely nights here this past weekend. Such a lovely place away from the hustle and bustle in Galveston. The condo that we stayed in was very nice and clean. Loved being able to bring groceries and have a small kitchen available to make quick meals. Everyone is very friendly. Not all units are allowed to be rented... More
