“2nd time a charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

This was our 2nd stay at the Victorian and it was again nice, clean and a fun place to stay.

We did not get a beach view this time but still could sit on balcony and see the ocean from our balcony.


Pool and hot tub was so nice


We checked out and left important items and called and they found them and held them at front desk.

Cant wait to go back again

We visited this hotel last year during high summer season. We reserved 2 suites on the phone and when we got there our reservation was not in the system. We ended up with 2 smaller rooms than what we had wanted. When we complained with the manager she just told us since it was high season, we could take it or leave, there would surely be more customers taking the rooms. The rooms were in good condition, but dirty, the mades were made, but the floors seemed dirty, and a couple of hairs in the bath tub.

The water on the pool was soo cloudy you couldn't see your feet.

it was disgusting. I would never ever return to this hotel. the only reason we stayed was because we already paid our deposit and there were no available rooms in other hotels we looked.

I volunteered to chaperone my son and some boys in his class on a trip to Galveston.
We checked in that afternoon and there was not enough towels in the room to accommodate the kids for which they were coming months prior to our arrival. The front desk clerk said that she did not have access to the linen closet and no one else could get in there. Who says that....?
After changing rooms 3 times within the same night, we gave up...
There were roaches in the bed, blood on the pullout sofa mattress, the towels had hair in them, the air conditioner did not work, and blood on the bedspread.
I only wish there was an option to upload pictures to show you what I saw.

I booked this hotel for 56 students who worked hard to earn an end of the year trip. When we pulled up to the property we were so excited because it looked so nice. We loved that we were right across from the beach. When we checked in and began to walk to our rooms we couldn't believe that this was the same place. We were walking down the hall and it literally looked like a prison ward. All of the students commented about this. We then got in our rooms and were extremely disappointed. All of the rooms except one were so outdated and the rooms smelled. After further inspection we noticed so many things wrong. Two rooms had dried blood on the pull out mattress (different rooms). Roaches found in one of the bunk beds. Two broken AC's and it was very muggy that night. Musty smell in pretty much all of the rooms. Also, the people who stayed there were not the most law abiding looking citizens. One of my students took out the sheets from the closet to make their bed and they noticed that on the blanket there were a lot of hairs trapped on the blanket (obviously not washed). Also, we noticed that one of the rooms had a pull out bed that was broken. I will say that the manager was very gracious and refunded us 6 of the 13 rooms we rented and refunded us for the 2nd night for all the rooms. We refused to stay another day!! We tried to not stay that first night but not able to talk to manager until the next morning. This hotel is so horrible, I can't believe that there are so many good reviews. This hotel is absolutely horrible and disgusting!!! Don't waste your money!!!

My wife and decided to get away from it all for an early anniversary weekend in Galveston and chose to spend a couple nights at The Victorian on the Galveston Seawall. We had a great time and really enjoyed the hotel. We had a great view of the ocean as well as the pool and the size of the room for the price was really great! It's nice to stay in a place that has more to offer than four walls and a bathroom. We had a kitchen area and living room as well as the bedroom and bath. It was like staying in an apartment right on the beach! Also, compared to other hotels in the same area, the rates were much more affordable. We would definitely return to Galveston and The Victorian would be the first choice of hotels for us.

Room Tip: Request ocean or pool view.

We stayed at the Victorian for our Spring Break. The girls loved the pool and hot tubs...they said it was the best ever. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained with many flowers in bloom.
The Seaside Bistro is conveniently located on the premises and we all enjoyed a wonderful breakfast on our final day. Our Condo was gorgeous and had a lot of personal touches. This property is a great place to stay if you have a family. The staff is very friendly and if you need any help, they are very responsive to your requests. All in all, we would recommend the Victorian for your next stay in Galveston !!!

Room Tip: If you want more room with a large balcony, request a first floor unit. If you want a large, 46 &qu...
