“Location to Seawall and Moody Gardens is great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The location is good! If you cross at the light to the front right of the property there are stairs right down to the water. It was an easy drive to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. The rooms are a little worn but efficient. Our patio door stuck easily and the pull out couch bed needs to be refreshed. The bunk bed were a great addition and one of the reasons we selected this property. The pools were also top notch! Security was visible and polite. Parking under the building was easy enough, as well. Don't stay here if you are looking for a 4 or 5 star. If you are desiring a family atmosphere where you don't mind a few hiccups, this is your place. Bring your own paper towels, liquid soaps, and extra pillows.

Room Tip: We were in 9224. You can see the gulf on the horizon. You see a lot of Wal-Mart parking lot. Buil...

We spent the weekend 06/14 - 06/16 at the Victorian in room 6101. This was our first time to stay there and we will be staying again. Our balcony view was of the seawall and the water. The staff was awesome from check in to check out. Most things were within walking distance of the hotel. The pools were very clean and well kept. We also used the hot tub which was very relaxing. We spent more time at the pool then we did anything else. They also have security at night checking all the cars coming into the complex, which makes you feel safe. We are already planning our next trip. Loved it!!!!

We spent a week in a TAN one bedroom condo the beginning of May. Pools were delightful, you looked off your balcony and saw the Gulf, cleaning staff did a nice job, beds were comfy but the decor was outdated and the fold out couch was all broken down both open and closed. We will be back again. Seaside Grill is onsite and serves well portioned good tasting food with excellent service.

Room Tip: try to get near an elevator. If driving park your car under your building for best convenience.

As a birthday present my fiancé planned a trip to Galveston and chose the Victorian Condos as the place to stay. I was a little sketchy at first after reading some of the negative reviews; however, we soon realized it was actually a really great place. It has some of the aspects of an older place but is kept up nicely. The staff is great and very helpful! We stayed in room 5105 which had a nice view of one of the pools and the gulf but was also far enough away from the busy highway so the traffic didn't keep us up.

I stayed at the Victorian from May 13-May 17 in Condo 7206. I don't know what to praise first - so I'll start with the ease of check-in. I showed up right after noon and a room was not yet available. I returned around 2pm and was checked in, with an upgrade, by a kind and courteous desk clerk. Condo 7206 is beautifully decorated and was immaculately clean, supplied with everything I needed for my visit. It has a wonderful view over the heated pool to the Gulf and a balcony that is shaded both morning and afternoon. It was the perfect spot for me to recover after having cared for an ill husband for over three months. Housekeeping respected my request for privacy, but were ready and willing to provide anything I needed. Security and grounds people were visible at all times. I felt absolutely safe both day and night. I enjoyed the heated pool, the easy access to both the Gulf and to Walmart for necessities. I first stayed at the Victorian in the 80's, shortly after it was built, and loved it then, but had not been back for a number of years. It is better than ever. I especially loved the tile floor in the unit - I didn't have to worry when I dripped on my way from the water to the balcony. Condo 7205 has a queen bed in the bedroom, a day bed in the hall alcove, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room, so it would easily accomodate a family of 5. The kitchen has a coffee maker, two burner range, microwave, undercounter fridge, and dishwasher, and plenty of dishes, flatware, and pots and pans. By the end of my five day stay, I was rested and ready to return to my real life.

Room Tip: Buildings 5 and 7 are located toward the back of the property, facing the gulf. The balconies are s...
