Stayed one night here before boarding a cruise ship at the Port of Galveston. The price was right on Hotels.com, but after driving up I was quickly disappointed. It is a very run down motel. The rooms are tiny, beds are tiny and shower is tiny. Found a roach in the sink of one of the rooms and found an...

We have stayed at Gaido's Seaside Inn on several trips to Galveston and I think the reason is Ms. Rose and Jo Jo. They are the most enjoyable, friendly staff any hotel could ever wish to have. They work the breakfast room single handedly, greeting each and every guest as if they belonged to their own family. The rooms at...

We spent three nights at Gaido's Seaside Inn. The accommodations were adequate, but no better than that. There is no closet, only a bar for hanging clothes but no hangars in our room. The maid service was nearly non-existent. The first day she made the bed but did no cleaning. The second day she did nothing at all. We weren't...

We decided at the last minute to get away to Galveston, TX for a few days. My parents & I had stayed numerous times at Gaido's Motor Inn during the 1970's & 80's. I thought we might give this motor inn a try, because of past positive experiences. I also know that over the years, things do change (& sometimes...

We had upgraded to a deluxe twin room when booking but I have no idea what made it deluxe. It wasn't even facing the gulf although they did change that for us at check-in. The beds were comfortable. No coffee maker in the room. Was not impressed with the breakfast selection. On the positive side all the staff were friendly....

Let me start out with the positive. The view was nice and the pool was very nice and clean. Also, the rooms were cleaned well. The breakfast was better than most hotel breakfasts and the staff was friendly. There were only a few things that bothered me. First, you had to have a hotel key as well as a wrist...

Our room was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and 1 of the most important things for me is the shower, which was perfect.( nothing worse than no water pressure when trying to remove sand and saltwater) The staff were great, I absolutely have nothing negative to say about this hotel.

Hard to beat the location & price makes it attractive to the budget minded traveler. They have a great pool, but I didn't find it as family friendly as others. The pool connects to a bar & on the Sunday night that we stayed it was very loud around our room by the pool & music from the patio blared...

Visited Gaido's for the first time and the food was absolutely wonderful! Cody, our server was so attentive and courteous. Prices are a bit high but well worth it for good quality food. Really enjoyed our experience and will return on our next visit to Galveston.

Has the potential to be awesome but has some flaws. They need to update the showers (dinky water pressure & noisy), have bigger beds (full size to queen) and have hair dryers. Has a cool vintage vibe and you can tell it's a classic throwback motel, just needs some updated amenities. The beds, while smaller than I like, were very...
