Spent a night at Gaido's at end of April and was quite satisfied. Although not the fanciest place on Galveston Island, it was reasonably priced. Conveniently located near numerous restuarants and bars/pubs, as well as the Amusement area. My room was clean, had a comfortable bed, Flatscreen TV with plenty of local and cable channels. Bathroom was clean, plenty of... More

I am looking at the reviews on here and I have a hard time believing we are referring to the same place. This place is ROUGH. that is putting it nicely. The employees I dealt with at the front desk had a general attitude of I don't care and I hate this job- I really hate that. Secondly I booked... More

Food is outstanding but pricey. A very nice restaurant if you have a special occasion. No lunch menu. Most meals will cost around 20.00. Scallops were great and very tasty. Gumbo for starter was very good.

I am a frequent guest of Gaido Seaside Inn. I stay at Gaido at least four times a year. Their rates are good both summer and winter months but I have a feeling they are about to change. They have made many updates and are continuing to update the property. Staying here gives you a feeling as if you were... More

We paid a moderate price for a great beach view. Yes, the rooms are outdated but clean, comfy, and we could walk straight out to the Gulf. The lady that cooked the free breakfast was sweet and an awesome cook. Everyone at the Inn was so nice and helpful. They told me a super quick way to get to Moody... More

Our room was located in the rear of the establishment which allowed for a quieter stay and I parked my car right in front of the room, bonus! The check in process was quick, friendly, and additional information about amenities, pool hours, etc. was provided. The room was very clean as well as the bathroom, many amenities to accommodate like... More

Beachfront room was perfect! Reasonably priced too! The pool is beautiful!! The staff is very friendly. Felt like home! Free breakfast was yummy too! We came super late to the breakfast when they were about to stop serving but instead of turning us away they made more food for my kiddos and my husband and I. We will be back!

This week we (2 teachers) stayed with 16 German exchange students at Gaido's Seaside Inn for two nights and were just delighted! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Although we had booked 6 rooms facing the courtyard we were upgraded to seafront rooms, which was a great experience especially for the kids. After a long day at the Nasa... More

Stayed from Thursday to Monday April 20, 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The Inn is older so don't expect the Hilton but it is clean and comfortable. We faced the ocean - beautiful view! A small refrigerator would be a good addition in the room. Staff was great - Breakfast lady was rocking it with eggs, burritos, cereal and... More
