We stayed for three days over spring break. They were full and we waited in line for over an hour for their free breakfast. At $163 per night we could have done much better. Holes in the sheets, AC did not work, and the noise levels were intense. Every unit has a set of iron bars at the front door... More

My husband and I took a short break in Galveston over a weekend. They allowed us to check in at two rather than the 4:00 pm check in which we really appreciated. We normally stay at the Casa del Mar when in Galveston, but they were booked up and having stayed at the Victorian in the past, thought it was... More

This is at least our 5th year at this hotel. Before booking this visit we read the reviews and were somewhat concerned as many seemed to not reflect our previous experience. Once again we were not disappointed - the room was as requested, clean, quiet, and our stay was as good as in previous years. One of our cleaning days... More

My mother, sister, three kids and I stayed here for two nights starting July 25, 2007. I booked the room three days prior to the trip and before I read these reviews. I was nervous to say the least. When I booked the room on-line I asked for bunk beds. I even called the hotel personally and asked them two... More

We stumbled upon the Victorian quite by accident. My wife and I and our kids (ages 23 mos and 5 mos) were staying in Galveston at another hotel which didn't really work out, and we had to move. I literally went down the strip trying to find alternative accomodations, and this worked out well for us. We were in a... More

My mother and sisters take a trip to Galveston each year. We have stayed at the Victorian each time. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!! First of all, we were guaranteed a reservation for a certain condo. When we got there, we were told that it was not available. We had reserved it three months in advance and had a valid confirmation. The one... More

As for the Victorian Condo's website it is more that misleading. The website represents a New, Clean, stated "Newly renovated" resort. Our room was quite dirty, the pullout sofabed was broken. All the furniture was filthy. I had to wash my children's feet before they went into bed as they were quite dirty just from walking around the room. I... More

A hotel rating of less than zero is what this place really deserves! It was absolutely filthy -- I couldn't even stand sitting on the couch. Yes, there was mold and it smelled. The website pictures lead you to believe that it's a nice, clean hotel. What an absolute dump!!!

As with several other reviewers, we were booked to stay here through Escapes. We were so excited to make this trip until we got to our room. The room smelled awful! The musty smell was nothing short of oveerwhelming. My husband and I both got a headache within about 2-3 minutes of being in the room - just chalked it... More

We stayed at the 1-bedroom suites as booked by Escape. The room is cramped for 2 adults and 3 kids. We found a load of dirty dishes in the dishwasher. The hot breakfast was acceptable, not terrible like other reviewers experience. It was ok since we did not have to pay for it. If you have to pay $200 a... More
