My husband and I went to The Mermaid & Dolphin Inn for our Valentines Getaway. The home is beautifully decorated throughout and the landscape was beautiful. Minutes away from the beach and boardwalk. When we arrived the gentleman told us that the room we had reserved didn't have cable, they were working on it so he upgraded us for free... More

B&B is old, and shows a lot of wear. Toilet seat looked as if it had been picked up from the garbage dump — discolored, chipped and very old. Faucet handles in the bathroom were broken and not repaired; water temperature in the shower could not be regulated — either too hot or ice cold. Photos on the internet are... More

Our first visit to this charming B&B was for our wedding in 2012. The night before the wedding, I stayed by myself, and had to check-in late because wedding preparations kept me late on the north side of town. My fiance called the innkeeper, let him know I was going to be late and about what time I would arrive,... More

My partner and I stayed here on Valentine's Day. It was incredibly romantic, from the private jacuzzi on our balcony to the surprisingly beautiful gardens in the back to the Victorian decor in the rooms. The owner and host was gracious and accommodating! We've decided this is where we want to spend every Valentine's Day.

We will stay at this establishment again in the future. John was ready to help with anything that was needed. The hot tub for our room was... More

We have been long time visitors of the Mermaid and Dolphin, this is by far the BEST and most charming place in Galveston. I feel comfortable, at ease and like I am at home when we visit. We visit probably once every 6 months... it is so worth it. The owner Jeff is amazing and the property rooms and atmosphere... More
