Recommend the Ghost/dinning stay. Great rooms, outstanding dinner and an Awesome haunting tour, with actual pictures and stories. A must for all ages. Jackie does a wonderful job as guide story teller. Always call ahead for dates.

the property was built a long time ago and it shows. If you like nostalgia then this is the place to stay. the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very small and there are no amenities. You should visit this place once if you stay in Galveston.

We stayed during the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Our room (gulf view) was very nice. We ate in the bar that evening and highly recommend the roast beef sliders and bacon wrapped shrimp. We agreed, that the award winning gumbo was mediocre. But the excellent drinks and service more than compensated for thegumbo. Next day we enjoyed the spa...

Staff were delightful and very accommodating. Booked room to surprise my mother for her 70th birthday. The staff organised a huge piece of cheesecake with happy birthday written on it for my mom, who was over the moon! My only negative comment would be the initial reservation. It was a very bland experience and had I not researched the hotel...
