Coastal Dreams is a beautifully appointed, comfortable, historic home. When considering Galveston, you should not miss this experience. Why stay in a motel/hotel when you can have what Coastal Dreams offers? I traveled with a girlfriend, and on this second stay here, Lana's gift of hospitality and attention to detail shone brightly and exceeded my expectations again. I stayed in... More

Enjoyed this lovely home and our hostess, Lana. She has thought of every detail to make her guests feel welcome and cared for. The quality of bedding and comfort of the king-sized bed was excellent. We had the Pacific room, and enjoyed our balcony with view of the pool. The pool and the tropical surroundings were so relaxing. Our breakfast... More

Had a great stay. Perfectly located. Lana is a considerate and accommodating host and is nicely restoring the home. Home history interesting. Private, roomy suites. Sleep was easy/ comfortable-quiet. Nice touches of creativity, design. Fabulous food/ menu. Although we did not use the pool/ hot tub; it was nice to have that option. Each of the rooms are different; make... More

What a wonderful review - thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Please know that there is no hot tub available, but the pool is a nice feature to have in these hot summer months - we are the only B&B on Galveston Island that has a pool! We look forward to hosting you again soon! More

A very nice stay before, and after, our cruise. The free parking at the Railroad Museum was a nice bonus and very convenient. The Pacific Room private balcony was great for morning coffee and tea as well as evening wine. Thanks Lana.

The Pacific Room is my favorite also - the balcony, overlooking the pool and gardens, is such a great place to just relax. The free cruise parking is a definite added bonus for our cruise passenger guests, and it couldn't be easier to use. I'm glad you were able to take advantage of it. Thank you for taking the time...

We enjoyed our recent stay in the Pacific Room, especially the opportunity to use the balcony that comes with the stay in this room. The hostess was friendly and attentive, and the room was very comfortable. The bathroom was also spacious, clean, and well restored. We stayed on a weekday, which I believe has different menu options than the weekends... More

Lana, the host is very gracious and helpful. The house is very well presented/appointed and clean. This stay exceeded our expectations. As a frequent traveler with many chain rewards- this place puts all those chains to shame. The only thing wrong with our stay was it wasn't long enough. Oh, and the breakfast was to die for. We had zero... More

Lana is a great hostess. The Pacific room is spacious and the bed is luxurious. We stayed during the week and the breakfast that she brought to the room was delicious and was very filling. The wifi was a bit slow and the cable in our room was out, I am not sure if it was out for the whole... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Coastal Dreams. I enjoyed hosting & chatting with you. The wi-fi in that room is a little slow - it is located the furthest from the router, and even with an upgraded booster outside your door, these old lathe & plaster walls just don't allow for a good signal....

Exceeded all expectations. Rooms were quiet, serene, exquisite linens. Breakfast was very decadent. Marked attention to detail, i could not think of anything that could be improved upon. The home is over a century old, survived the 1900 Galveston hurricane and the owner has done a remarkable job equipping the house with modern day comforts while respecting the history

This was our second stay - the first was a gift and the second was our choice. Both stays we received very good attention. Good quiet place for a couple to enjoy a very friendly atmosphere. We now prefer staying there over hotels on the island.Lana is attentive to detail in service.

We had a wonderful time here. My husband and I are vegetarian and Lana accommodated us at breakfast. The room was cozy and beautiful. It was the perfect way to spend a honeymoon. It is situated in a residential area so it is nice and quiet and the room had a mini fridge where we could keep our leftovers.
