Avenue O Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 11 Galveston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 June 2014

It's a nice enough place to stay. I do agree with the other reviews that the owner is very friendly and helpful, but not the best housekeeper. If you want super clean, stay somewhere else. It is a short walk to the sea wall.

Room reviews: south pacific
Pros: excellent frittata, kind and welcoming owner that will go out of her way to accomodate your needs, a lovely balcony, chocolate chip cookies were phenomenal, and there is a nice jacuzzi tub.
Cons: French toast was too sweet and doughy, attention to cleanliness is sub par, bed squeeks, fridge is on floor with coffeepot on top in the closet and you have to bend down low to get coffee, dishes are dirty and you dont get a clean cup daily.
Most issues would be addressed by hiring a housekeeper a few hours a day.

My husband and I got married here 3 days ago on 5/15/14. We also stayed overnight in the Rainforest Room. We did a very small 6 person wedding & it was such a beautiful & stress-free experience. Connie was amazing from day one! She emailed the day after we reserved the Rainforest Room to ask our breakfast preferences! The beauty of the grounds, the wedding decorations, fresh flowers, string lights, tie back chair covers, arranged seating under the covered patio area, stained glass waterfall & cake table were all so elegant. Connie was extremely attentive to our group without being intrusive. The size of the cake & the amount of champagne was generous. Connie even took a group photo of all of us. When we returned from having lunch elsewhere, our cake was waiting on the little table in the room and my bouquet was placed in a vase with water. The suite looked exactly like it did in pics from the website plus there was an A/C window unit in each room which made it very comfortable. The whale tub was glorious, the breakfast was delicious and elegant - I'm talking orange juice in champagne flutes and tea light candles on the table. Connie is knowledgable about what to do in Galveston & its rich history. This is a super quiet location, very private feeling. We loved having our own patio & the shower big enough for 2, not to mention those yummy chocolate chip cookies waiting for us in the room when we first arrived. We were, and are still, absolutely blown away.

Three of us stayed for the weekend...we took out the South Pacific and the small room that is across the hall, all in the main house. The decor was great...it even had a little patio to sit on and enjoy the ocean breeze! There was a small refrigerator in the room, which was convenient. The bed was amazingly soft and I slept like a baby! As for breakfast, I cannot eat gluten, so she went out of her way to ensure that I didn't miss out on anything yummy! Even left GF cookies in the room for me! It was a pleasurable stay and I plan to return in a couple of weeks!

We stayed in the safari room & my mom in the South Pacific room. Both were great. The breakfasts were amazing & the location easy to get to a lot of places on the island. The owners were super nice & helpful with recommendations on things to do. She was very prompt with the reservations and accommodating. The beach is only a couple blocks away.
