We pulled up to this hotel, which is directly across the street from the water.... and the Walmart. It was quite nice from the outside, with convenient parking under the buildings. The hallways for the rooms are liked with non-latching barred doors, which does put you off a little. We entered the room and thought it was pretty decent. separate... More

Growing up in Houston, my family took frequent trips to Galveston. Twenty years ago, this hotel was called the Victiorian and we loved staying there. The rooms were just the right size for a family of five and it was right across the street from the beach. I returned to this hotel with my kids and found that the rooms... More

We had a two night weekend stay thanks to a gift certificate from a charity golf tournament - so no matter what it was a good deal from that stand point. When we arrived we realized it was the same property we stayed at the only other time we were in Galveston several years ago. The hotel was run down... More

This was listed as a condo from a company called Realty Executives-Advantage as "Victorian 1305".The view was awesome and that was the only good thing about it. First off, this is listed as a CONDO. This is a HOTEL ROOM. It is at a hotel (very misleading). Our bed sheets were handed to us in plastic wrap by the cleaning... More

Our room was fairly clean and had a good view of the gulf. The pools, when supervised, were outstanding. There was a problem with rowdiness in the kids pool a couple of times but security took care of it. The free breakfast was worth the price. It was terrible. The property is in a great location near shopping and tons... More

The website seems great, the advertise wi-fi, clean rooms, spacious rooms...none of it exists. They are out dated and not clean. The cleaning service was nice, but everything was so old it was hard to clean! The service at the front desk was barely cordial. Do not recommend.

Large comfortable condo in a great location. Older property that is well maintained. Rates were great for a condo that accommodated all 6 of us comfortably. The staff was outstanding! I look forward to my next trip there.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was elegant and clean. We loved waking up in the morning, going sit on the balcony with a great view of the gulf. We will stay at this hotel on every visit to Galveston.
