Thank you for your kind words, We have a suite called The Garden Apartment it offers a large screen TV; we have 500 channels on cable and a DVD player in that suite, most guests love getting away from the world, some just have to have their remote controls and the Garden Apartment would be for them.

We enjoyed a quick stay at the Victorian Inn and found it, like its hostess, thoroughly charming. Pictures don't do it justice. The decor reflects masculine and feminine character. Breakfasts are either light or substantial, either excellent. Easy access to all points on the Island, and despite crummy weather, was enjoyable. Guests are well cared for without being hovered over...

One of the greatest compliments an Inn keeper receives is when guests book their next stay when checking out from their current stay...Wowsiers!!!!Most of my guests wish they had more time to enjoy the Inn and Galveston. Folks do not realize how many fun things there is to do on this small island. I try to visit with my guests...

We had a quick night in Galveston after a nearby concert at the Grand. This B&B is within walking distance of the Grand and seemed perfect at the time. Unfortunately, our experience was overall odd and has made us question whether we ever want to stay in another bed and breakfast. The owner is a little odd, but so are...

I first stayed at the Victorian Inn as a 6 yr old child with my mother and have continued to stay over the years. I remember as a little girl, I was so amazed by every story, picture and trinket that Marcy (the owner and caretaker) shared with me. Even then being so young, I felt the passion Marcy had...

I have lived in the Gulf Coast Area all of my life, and I didn't know this place existed. Truly a beautiful place to stay and close to everything on the island to do, But when you return from your day on the island, the peace and quiet is worth twice the price. Speaking of the price it is cheaper...

Located on Galveston Island and run by Ms Hanson. She serves a lovely breakfast and the fig preserves (she makes these herself) are awesome.

Just when I think its time to retire (after 26 yrs) a lovely couple comes along like this one and I realize this is exactly where I should be and what I should be doing! It is just plain sweetness...that we do not see much of in this world today, that's why I love spoiling my guests so much!!!!
