My husband and I have been staying here in and off for the last 8 years. We live a little over an hour away and it's our go-to getaway. We love that we get to bring our dog with us. The pool area is our favorite spot.

rooms are very tight, the pool was VERY crowded with several large families. A few intoxicated people. Poor pool service. Kids running up and down the halls after midnight. Never coming here again. We moved to the San Lois for the rest of our stay. There was a picture of a spiders next in our room that terrified my son.... More

The room was well equipped for my mobility needs. The bathroom stool and balance bars were particularly good. I wish all the rooms had balance bars in the bathtub.

The hotel was well maintained and the best part of our stay. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Food was good, but not spectacular. Pool is first rate.

Beautiful hotel and view with excellent restaurant service. However, disappointed in daily maid service over our three day stay. Beds were not made, glasses not replaced. Noise level between rooms and hallway disturbingly loud. Toiletries were not of the quality expected for price of the room.

We were looking for a great short getaway and we stumbled upon the Hotel Galvez. We had been to Galveston before and had seen the Galvez, but we had never stayed, so we gave it a whirl. When we got there we decided to check out the pool, and the pool was great. It was the highlight of our stay.... More

Rooms aren't very spacious. Room service would not answer the phone, the host answered and then a rude awakening that the menu in the room was not what they actually had. So we had to eat downstairs ! Not very happy about that. Valet spent time on their phone while our car sat with the door open and engine running... More
