Another great stay! We stayed in a one bedroom on the eight floor (807), we've stayed in this unit several times! It's a beautiful unit. It's updated and has a very clean, open, beach feel to it. The kitchen has everything you need. It also had coolers and lawn chairs for the beach in a closet they keep open. I really don't have anything negative to say about The Galvestonian or this unit. Although it is next to the elevators, but it's still quiet and never had noise problems. Beautiful place.

We stayed in condo 1014 which was very nice and stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The maid service came in daily with fresh towels, made the beds, and other light housekeeping. The beach and pool towels were very convenient. Loved the pool and private beach! Very relaxing atmosphere overall. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

Our first time to rent a condo and the Galvestonian has set the standard very high! We were in Unit 1002, upgraded from a 1-bedroom to the 2 bedroom, 2 bath. The unit was very clean, pleasantly furnished and very comfortable. Everything was in place, from the kitchen to both bathrooms which were typically small. Employees were friendly, helpful and eager to please. Lisa and Amy were very efficient at the front desk and handled each question or request we had. The entire property is beautifu... Read more

This is a 60-unit condo building with a nice lobby, reception desk, pool, beautiful mature landscape with multiple places for barbecue, a very peaceful and clean beach, and family-oriented people. Sixty percent of condos are used by their owners and only 40% of the condos are rented. I guess the only reason they call it a hotel is that you have a 24-hour reception desk, towels for the pool, chairs and umbrella for the beach ($35 per day must be reseved ahead of time) and daily housekeeping.

I consider myself a bit of a travel guru and have studied Tripadvisor over the years.We live in Houston and have been to Galveston multiple times and not necessarily always impressed. We were however extremely surprised by this place. Great views (we stayed on the 5th floor) of the ocean, quite beach with easy access, amazing pool area, great grill area etc. We loved every part of it and hope to return soon! I would definitely recommend a stay here!

Everyone here is polite and so very friendly (staff and other guests)! This isn't our first stay here and most definitely won't be the last! If you are looking for a Galveston condo vacation this is the place to do it! The pool is decently sized with lots of seating. They also "clean" the beach each morning and have umbrellas and chairs to rent.

Our family have been going to the Galvestonian for almost 30 years and it is still the best place to stay on the island. The beach access, the privacy, and the outdoor cooking area cannot be beat. They are also always making improvements to enhance the experience. Management and there staff have created a warm and professional environment for there guest and I'm sure for there residence. I would like to add that it might be time to work on or replace the Weber grills because the ash can mechanis... Read more

We stayed at The Galvestonian years ago and always wanted to return. Both last year and this year we treated ourselves to a weekend. What a joy! We always take food with us, so we don't have to leave the property. Who would want to!!! There is breeze on the beach when it isn't happening anywhere else; the view is heavenly; the open beaches for walking miles are available directly off the property; and, if you are pool people, the pool is lovely. We so wanted to spend a week, but time woul... Read more

First stay here and compared to other hotels in Galveston its the only one that feels like a "beach hotel", because its the only one directly on the beach. Just a boardwalk away from the sand. No crowds as its on a quiet part with other condo's and beach homes. We were on the 6th floor in a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit on the corner. We had great views south over the ocean and west down the beach. The master bedroom AC was running warm the night we arrived and after alerting front desk, it was fixed b... Read more

I truly enjoyed my experience at the Galvestonian. The room , 805-6, I lucked up on while booking and I loved it. The room was clean and had an amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico.My bed was comfortable and my bathroom was immaculate. Fresh Fluffy Towels daily! The staff was extremely helpful from the booking to the check-in to the check-out. I had a peaceful sleep each night. I didn't here any other guests in their condos. Everyone was friendly and the hotel only added to my visit on the island.... Read more

My family and I traveled to The Galvestonian for a long weekend to celebrate my granddaughter's first birthday. There were 5 adults and 3 children, age 3 and under. Being right on the beach was a godsend for us. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit on the 10th floor and loved the view. We were very pleased with the unit and the staff was always very helpful. I will be recommending The Galvestonian to those who want to be away from all the hustle and bustle of the Seawall but close enough t... Read more

I took my parents on a vacation and stayed at The Galvestonian. The condo was emmaculate and the service was OUTSTANDING. Although it's located in Galveston it actually feel like you are on a bonafide tropical island. The landscape of the property is unbelievable, the upkeep of the property is second to none and the attention to guest is to be commended. I enjoyed the dedicated hours for adults only in the hot tub and the option to have beach chairs waiting for you from 0900-7:30pm. Additionally... Read more

We enjoyed a romantic 3 day weekend for our first trip to the Galvestonian. Quiet, clean and nice 2/2 condo with a lovely view. The staff are friendly and we had everything we needed for a relaxing time. Would highly recommend for couples and families looking for a private beach experience.

This is our second vacation stay. We were so impressed with our first one in 2014 that we had to do it again. We stayed in Unit 612 last week. It was beautifully decorated and clean. Our stay was absolutely perfect!

Our stay here was so peaceful and relaxing. Open the door and all you hear is the surf, no traffic no crowd noise, just the surf. It's location is everything! Placed right on the beach with consideration for the beautiful grassy dunes with a dune walkover, lots of sand and sea. No cars allowed on this beach and it is kept very clean. The water was clear and green during our stay. The property is well maintained, the staff is very helpful, it's only a short distance from The Strand and all... Read more

Right on the beach, no crossing streets on your own manicured beach. And did I mention all rooms have a terrific view? You're only 5 min from the strand and it's really a nice get away! Condo living at its best!

This was our first visit to the area. I used Trip Advisor to research places to stay. The Galvestonian was at the top of the list. It seemed to check all of the boxes from the description and reviews, and we were extremely pleased about the location (on the beach and 10 minutes from the downtown area). As others have described the grounds are lush with gardens, the pool area was well equipped, and there were outdoor tables and grills for family cookouts. Our family of 5 (parents, grandpare...
