FILTHY!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

Filthy! The front desk can do nothing for you as these are private owned "condos" aka 1970's motel rooms that have not been updated since they were built but the worst part is they are filthy...do not take off your shoes...your feet will get as dirty as they would at a corner store restroom. The walls are peeling, the drywall is falling off the wall in chunks, the ac vents are molded, rusted and nasty, the trim is coming of the counters, the carpet is molded & filthy, the curtains are torn and nasty, the beds are worn out, the couch is dilapidated, the front door is peeling and molded, there is major built up dirt over the door frames, the tub need to be resealed as there are cracks, the water pressure is barely there, the room corners have dirt and funk built up in them, the cabinets have holes in them, the ceiling has mold and dirt, the vacuum in the room is broken and missing the handle, the mirror is chipped and cracked, the ac intake and filter was filthy, the door had been jb welded together, the only way to get the fan to work in the bedroom and turn off the light was to unscrew the bulb. I have stayed at the victorian many times since 1994 but this will be my last. The overall rest of the property is in the same shape crappy and not taken care of. A renovation is needed but the.least of their worries! This property is disgusting, filthy and an absolute ripoff for what you pay. THIS IS THE WORST PLACE THAT YOU CAN STAY AT IN GALVESTON! If you have to stay here stay home! Pissed off customer that will NEVER BE BACK!!!!! YOUR ENTIRE FACILITY STAFF AND CONTRACTORS SHOULD BE FIRED! I WILL BE CONTACTING THE GALVESTON HEALTH DISTRICT, FIRE MARSHALL, GALVESTON COUNTY AND CITY OF GALVESTON. YOUR FACILITY IS REDICULOUS!

Old and nasty!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here as a last minute trip to Galveston. It was July 4th weekend so we had little choice. I had read the reviews so I came armed with airfreshner and some cleaning supplies. Upon first site it appears the front to door had been kicked in and fixed in the cheapest way. Inside the decor is old and in poor condition. Large parts of the wall are peeling off, the mini fridge was frosted over. To make matters worse the shower was stuck in the on position, so no bath for small children.

You pay for cheap, you get cheap.

  • 2 of 5

I should have known the rate was too good to be true. Upon arrival, the grounds overall were very nicely kept & attractive. However, once entering in the actual condo itself, we discovered that unit was very run down & outdated & in need of repairs. Plastering on walls were chipping off, master bedroom ceiling fan only worked with the light ON - pull string to turn light portion off was broken so I either had to sleep with the light on or turn fan off completely which caused for a hot room at night.

The kitchen area was very small & the description never stated it only came with a dorm size refrigerator. It would've been nice knowing prior to arrival for people like me who brought food. Paneling around kitchen counter was falling off. The couch extended into a bed but springs were missing & laying under the couch so we had to fix that before it was safe enough to sleep on. Overall cleanliness was acceptable I suppose. I saw a few details that needed attention but nothing that made me feel as if it was left dirty for us.

The shower drain was stopped up. After 4 people took their showers, I was fearful the tub was going to overflow. Unfortunately that issue wasn't discovered until late our first night. The following morning the problem was reported to the front desk & the response I got was "it wasn't their problem, that I would have to call the booking agency & go through them". The other thing I didn't like is when giving the front desk my information, she couldn't find any paperwork showing I was even there or who was in that unit. Not impressive for a guest to see the staff can't keep up with information on who their guests are. I called the booking agency number but was unable to speak to a live person & had to leave a voicemail explaining the problem. I've now returned home, it's been 6 days since leaving the voicemail with HomeAway.com & NO ONE HAS RETURNED MY CALL! Luckily for me, I knew enough about plumbing that I was able to rig a snake of sorts together & unstop the drain myself so we didn't have to stand in dirty water each time we showered.

Again I say, you pay for cheap, you get cheap. If we'd ended up having bad weather & was forced to stay inside a lot during our time there, I would've been even more unhappy with the unit. However it was sunny & beautiful so we stayed gone as much as possible from the unit. I won't be using this booking agency or facility again in the future. Overall, not impressed. The owners need to update!
