“Ok for one night!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stayed here for one night before leaving for our cruise. We had a 2 bedroom condo and I had stayed here before about 5 years ago. The furniture is a little dated and the bedrooms are the smallest bedrooms I have ever seen. But for one night it was fine. They have a free shuttle to the cruise port if you book the cruise package with your reservation. It was very hard to get the luggage cart in the elevator. It is a very dated property and not a good bargain. $300.00 a night for a 2 bedroom condo is a bit pricey for a old and wore out property.

We used to stay here many years ago regularly when it was a nice respectable place. It is the slums now. These are nothing more then section 8 type apartments rented by the night. Many questionable people loitering the area. Rooms were absolutly fithy and disgusting. We were awaken by food wrappers in the middle of the night. There was a huge rat in the kitchen going through our chips! Not a little mouse, but a huge RAT! It ran inside the fold out matress. We turned it around to find a huge hole in it. Thank god we did not sleep on the fold out. They moved us rooms to another slum room but atleast it was rat free. When we checked out, the manager was SO RUDE. Never in my life had I been treated so badly and disrespected at a hotel. Don't be fooled by the nice appearence on the outside. It's a whole different thing once you get a closer look. Stay at casa del mar if you need a suite like we needed. It's nicer and cheaper.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your stay with us. We are a bit confused, however, about your review. You stated that you stayed with us August of 2012. We don't understand why you are just now commenting--seven months after the fact. We have gone back over all of our computer records, as well as, our written records for that time period, and we were not able to find a reference to any of your stated issues. We also noticed that you negatively rated several other properties months after your stay with them.

Please feel free to e-mail us or call us directly to discuss your concerns. We need to know the number of the condo in which you stayed, the exact dates of stay, and your name.

We stayed here for the weekend of Feb 15th-17th. I had previously booked a room but at the last minute had called to see if i could switch room types. They were 100% booked but they managed to change rooms for me so i could have the pool view and bunkbeds and i was very pleased. The condo was very clean and neat- the heated pool and hot tubs were nice too (i just wish they were closer together) Rooms are stocked with dishes/cookware, stovetop, and microwave but there is no oven :-( The view from my room was spectacular- beautiful facilities/grounds. Would definitely stay here again....

WE visited Galveston for Mardi Gras. We left without a reservation on Sat 2/9/2013. We stayed in room 3330 initially and we liked it so much we decided to stay two more days. They then moved us to room 4201 and what a view we had of the Ocean. I only wish the weather could have been as nice as the Hotel. I definitely would recommend this lovely place to others. The amenities are awesome as well. We enjoyed the large spacious Hot tub while there. Due to the weather we were not able to utilize the lovely pool but it was clean and inviting as well. They also have tennis court on this property. It is gated for safety. Also the room comes equiped with a full kitchen including a stove, microwave, and refridgerator plus a full size pantry. Great for a family get away.

Room Tip: We did not see a spa at this property. However there is a wonderful Hot tub area with two separate...

We stayed there this weekend and it was a great experience. The rooms were nicely equipped, clean and quiet. All of the staff there was very helpful and very nice and made the check in process very easy.

It's hard to find a hotel for 5 women friends to go to for a girls weekend. The Victorian was perfect - room 1302, a 3 bedroom, had everything - 2 bathrooms, a sitting area, a kitchen, a great price and a balcony that overlooked the seawall. We didn't need 2 hotel rooms and could stay together with plenty of room. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the restaurant was good and handy, and a great location made the weekend. Galveston has so much to offer and the Victorian made our holiday stay from 1/19/2013 - 1/21/13 special. We will be back again for another MLK weekend.

Room Tip: A roof over the lobby detracts from the ocean view in one room on the 3rd floor.
