The pool and bar was the bestttt

Perfect and clean I recommend to everybody and close to the sea walk

The old style of the hotel adds to the class the staff and rooms offer. There are plenty of activities to do on site as well as around the property. The offseason is great to visit OCT-DEC or when the weather is cooler in Galveston. Hotel prices are more reasonable and the amenities are less crowded. Plenty of room in an around the pool and spa. The only thing that was a little upsetting on our visit was the lighting in our room kept faulting,but with this being an older hotel with rumored hauntings,its an amazing place to take the family

Everything was excellent except for the bed is too high up and you roll into the middle of the bed.

Jacuzzi was not working. The pool was dirty - used straws and plastic wrappers floating. No bar service outside at the pool.

Beautiful hotel. Amazing rooms and people were very friendly. Our stay was very welcoming.❤️

This is a beautiful property with easy access to the beach, souvenir shopping, and the Pleasure Pier. Every member of the staff we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We chose self-parking instead of valet because it was $8/night cheaper and the parking garage was right across the street. The pool was beautiful but it was a heated, saline pool. It was more for adults to hang out and drink. No problem for most but if you have kids, it wasn’t a pool to splish/splash in. The only negatives were: 1) no microwave; we ate out at a nice restaurant on The Strand and had a doggy bag. We planned on putting it in the room fridge and eating it the next day, but was told by the staff there wasn’t a microwave on the premises for us to use (due to covid). 2) the bathtub didn’t drain properly so we had a pretty thick layer of sand covering the tub the entire time. They only clean rooms every 3rd night (due to covid). We tried cleaning it but bc the water drained so slow, we couldn’t get it out. Overall, a great stay and we definitely would come back again!

Very nice hotel! Great view, very clean, parking garage within easy walking distance to hotel. Hotel overlooks the beach and is right across the street from the beach.

Melissa checked us in and asked if we were celebrating anything special, we told her we were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. When we arrived back at the room Melissa had a bottle of Sparkling wine and toasting flutes waiting for us. What a wonderful gesture and surprise! Thank you Hotel Galvez!!

The staff was friendly and everything was great from the time i drove up to check in to checking out. Very clean and over all just a great experince,

Beautiful hotel . Great location. Wonderful employees.

History of the hotel and ambience was nice. Was also nice and quiet

The room was very dirty. I had an open bottle of water with lipstick left for me.

The location is great Beautiful pool Great architecture

Peggy, thank you for your review! You must have stayed on the 6th floor. The 6th floor is our "Clear Air" floor, meaning all of the bedding is hypo-allergenic, in addition to having an air-purifier under the bed that circulates the air four times an hour. Unfortunately, having this luxury under the bed means the mattress is higher. It is well-worth it though!

Taylor, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at the pool. The hot tub and swim-up bar are unavailable as a result of COVID. We have food and drinks available via cocktail service at the pool. We are confident that next year's summer experience will be much better.
