It was a wonderful visit again? Love this place, the pool, the service.

Second Stay and Can't Wait for More

5 on June 21, 2016

We went for our second stay at Coastal Dreams for our 26th anniversary. Our last stay was so great, but during the week and we wanted to see the wonderful breakfast the weekend would bring. Lana didn't disappoint. It was nice having breakfast with all the other guests and sharing what we did. It gives you great ideas for what you might want to do. We are already trying to decide when to come back.

5 stars all the way

My wife and I stayed at this B&B a few weeks ago. The hostess, Lana, couldn't have been any friendlier. We arrived early, and since the room was ready we were able to drop our luggage and head out to see the island. Lana recommended a restaurant and the food was superb. We sat outside by the pool and read, including a fabulous history of the house. We told others about this bed-and-breakfast and now they want to go there too. I can't think of one thing that needs to be improved.

Wonderful at any season

We've stayed three times at Coastal Dreams, once in the spring and twice in December. Lana has been a wonderful hostess who accommodated our every request (and there were a few) and provided extras we didn't expect. The house is accessible to every part of the city and easy to find. Breakfasts are superb and filling. Because this is an older house, it has an interesting history, having survived the Great Storm of 1900. This also means that storage space is limited, but the rooms are spacious enough that this is a minor issue. In the spring, the Pacific room on the back side of the lodge is our favorite. A private balcony is perfect for relaxing in the gulf breeze. In the winter, we like the Atlantic room for it's roominess and well-appointed kitchenette. I cannot recommend the Coastal Dreams highly enough.

Weekend stay in Galveston at Coastal Dreams B&B

Lana is the best

I've only been to a handful of BnBs. Lana is on top of her biz, and out of your way. I felt like I was seeing an old friend when I first met her - we could talk openly, or be quiet, comfortably. It's an old house with plenty of history, that you can glean from a scrapbook. She reveals herself in family photos and other decor. Fantastic ambience.

.new years weekend

We had a great new years weekend stay. The room was perfect and the hospitality warm and inviting. The breakfast was great and served with a smile. The old home showed well and was relaxing. See you there soon.

My weekend getaway

This was a much needed long weekend get away; the room was perfect and cozy and the house was beautiful. Lana was very accomodating on my arrival, during my stay and on departure. It was a wonderful B&B experience. I will definitely be back next year. I had a great weekend. I recommend this to anyone who does not want the hotel/motel experience. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. ~Margie~

One of the Best B&B's!!!

My husband and I stayed at Coastal Dreams for our 11 year anniversary weekend, and we were highly impressed with the house and our room! We felt so comfortable and cozy. The breakfast was absolutely superb and Lana baked fresh cranberry bread for us too! We didn't want to leave, and we'll definately be going back there!

Perfect Stay in Galveston!

Lana was the perfect hostess with an amazing breakfast every morning. The B&B is within walking distance of the Sea Wall and the pool and hot tub area was quiet and peaceful. It is the relaxing vacation my husband and I had wished for!

Signature Dish

Stuffed French Toast
Always a Sunday morning favorite, this dish is a cream cheese stuffed cinnamon bread, baked and topped with an apple brandy sauce. To die for!
