Perfect for 6 couples or large groups. Close to Broadway and near the beach. 6 bedrooms/suites with individual baths, large living and eating areas. Host/chef Richard Conner presents an amazing breakfast buffet and can arrange a great dinner meal. Our group thoroughly enjoyed this 1870's home.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at The Lasker Inn with six other couples to bring in the new year. The home is beautiful. Our bedrooms and baths were so comfortable. They were furnished so nicely. In each room, we had bottles of water, candy, fancy soaps and lotions. The living areas were great--spacious. Our... More

Although I've spent countless hours researching accommodations, restaurants, attractions etc., I've never felt compelled to write a review before today. The Lasker Inn and it's owner, Richard, exceeded all of our expectations. The home is beautifully decorated and immaculately kept. Upon entering and meeting Richard, we truly felt like we were friends visiting for the weekend not just overnight guests.... More

To write a “positive”, “good” or “great” review for The Lasker Inn Bed and Breakfast, Galveston, Texas would be insulting to our experience. Only an EXTRAORDINARY review would do it some sort of justice. To name the reasons in their entirety would be a novel, but this is a review of why you should always go out of your way... More

I located The Lasker Inn on the internet. I'd called other B&Bs on the Island trying to book for Dickens Weekend only to find that they double their regular rates for that weekend. One B&B offered to cancel SOMEONE ELSE'S reservation if I were willing to pay them $600 per night for a suite. Called Lasker Inn and found that... More

Mandi, Thank you so very much for the beautiful review. It was my pleasure to host you and the girls for "Dickens On The Strand" weekend. I am so glad you had such a wonderful weekend.

We have 5 children and our 2 youngest daughters are now 15 and 12. We have been to many B&B's but never with any of our kids. We stayed this summer in July with our 2 daughters and had a fabulous time. Never been to the Lasker Inn before. Richard's hospitality and friendliness was over the top. Such a warm... More

We recently spent the weekend at The Lasker Inn for my sister's wedding. Come Sunday, no one wanted to leave! That weekend was the most amazing experience one could hope for. From the moment you arrive, Richard and Linda make you feel right at home and not at all like a guest. The home is warm, inviting and well appointed... More

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay at The Lasker Inn in Galveston, Tx. It was a last minute trip with very little planning in advance. Richard greeted us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the absolutely beautiful restored home. He was very attentive, interesting, and made us feel very welcomed. Our suite... More

We stayed here with our family for my stepbrother's wedding. The Inn is beautiful and each room unique and cozy. But Richard, the Inn's host, made the weekend special. He was so attentive, friendly, and such a great host. Can't wait to stay again.
