“Fading glory”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Victorian several times in the 90's. Was and still is a great location, great view and good front desk. However, the Victorian needs a little updating and cleaning. Carpet is still the same and I know that the hurricanes have come through here. Definitely a slight smell from them. Floors should be fresh and mopped when you arrive, as well as the dishes provided. Otherwise, still a bargain and we will be back. Will just make sure to have cleaning supplies with us as this is a condo.

Room Tip: Spend the extra $10 to get a pool view. Definitely worth it.

First time staying here. The view from balcony was awesome. Stayed in a one bedroom, small but nice. COLD A/C. Friendly people at front desk. Very convenient location, next to WalMart and Sonic.
We will be back.

My husband and I stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary this past week. We stayed at the Victorian from October 24 throuth October 26, 2012 and stayed in room 3217. We enjoyed the cleanliness of the condo, the friendliness of the staff and the on-property restaurant with room service. We will definitely be making our Galveston stays at this condo in the future.

I, for the 5th time, spent a night last week in Galveston, and again chose the Victorian for my lodging. The folks there are always cordial, and the property is well maintained. I am on their mailing list, so I enjoyed a discount for my stay that made them quite competitive.

The room was once again a one bedroom with daybed in the living area, and it worked out great for us. The only reason that I am not giving them the full 5 stars is due to the fact that we were sent to a unit with a desk rather than the daybed we had requested in our reservation which caused a short delay in getting into our room.

Although I haven't used the kitchens much in these stays, they seem full functioned and working. There is good water pressure in the shower, a nice view of the Gulf from all units, and I've never had any problems with any of the units I've stayed in not being clean or smelling stale. The on-site laundry came in handy as this stay was nearly a week into our 10 day vacation, although I'd recommend having small packages of detergent and conditioner available for sale.

I will definitely stay here again should my travels include Galveston.

Room Tip: I recommend buildings 3 or 4 for great Gulf views.

We stayed at The Victorian for an 8-night getaway in Room 2302 from 9-22-12 through 9-30-12. We try to visit the island twice a year, but this was our first time to spend a week at The Victorian. We loved the size of the two-bedroom condo, the beautiful bay window with its view of the Gulf, the balcony, the spacious closets & other storage areas, and so much room to really settle in for a while. The beds were comfortable and the furnishings were wonderful especially the accents.The staff was great checking in with us via courtesy phone calls. We also found the Seaside Bistro that is on the property to be a wonderful place to eat...and they deliver to your room! We plan to make The Victorian our new getaway place for future visits.

Room Tip: Upper floor two-bedroom condos definitely worth the money.

We enjoyed staying at the Victorian. It is very close to the seashore and my kids were playing by the water and in the sand all day. They even enjoyed the beautiful pool at the Victorian.
Best of all, when the kids went to bed, their dad stayed with them in the room and i was able to walk to the seaside with some friend and enjoy the peaceful sound of the water at night.
