“Great hotel but way too pricey!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We were upgraded to a room for allergy relief which was very nice in that we didn't ask.
The room was nice but alittle small and we didn't realize there was a refrigerator until our last night so that would have been nice to have been told. The price of the room was way too much and the bed was very hard. But the view was wonderful and the hotel lobby was beautiful.

all sounds penetrated through the walls and we could hear the TV from the room next door as well as their conversations all night long and early in the morning.

We love the hotel and will definately book there again. Beach access was across the street but not too far to walk. Beach was clean and staff renting chairs and umbrellas were friendly and informative about places to eat. Staff a hotel were very helpfull and friendly also. Pool was beautiful and relaxing. Bed is comfortable but could be better for price of Hotel. We did get a good nights rest on it. Pleasure Pier is located close by and is great for the kids. My freind forgot her purse in one of the rooms and didn't realize it until we were 150 miles away. Staff members verified purse was there and returned it by mail with 2 days and all the contents were still in purse. That says it all for the staff. They were also very friendly to our preteens especially the lady at the door. I wish I could remember her name.

Galvez is great place to stay. Only complaints are that lighting in bathrooms is not sufficient enough for a female to apply makeup and food prices in hotel restaurant were too high.

This is real Texas hospitality. The bellman were true professionals as was the check-in staff.
We love historic hotels, this one's from the 'Progressive Era at over a Hundred years old. The rooms are small but to be expected from the age, unless you get a suite. No balconies available. You will have to cross the street to get to the beach. Only one side table for our King bed room. Great swim up bar with two bartenders of outstanding talent.
Best seafood dinner at historic Gaido's 1.6 mile from Galvez.
