I've stayed here multiple times in the past 5 years, both with family and as a "Girl's Weekend". I've never been unhappy with any of our visits. Front desk staff is very helpful & polite ; even when very busy they make guests feel welcome. We've been met with smiles, "welcome back", fresh cookies, pink lemonade, and free popcorn. I've...

I had originally booked this inn for 3 nights, but after listening to the music and partying downstairs until midnight, then being blasted with pool side music at 0900, I decided one night was enough. I asked to speak to the owner of the bar that is literally a step away from the pool, since their music is piped over... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for the review. We Sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

We are hoping that he takes these complaints into serious consideration. In regards to our amenities offered... More

Gaido's Seaside Inn and Restaurants have been a Galveston mainstay for years. The rates used to be some of the least expensive on the island, but since their recent upgrades, be prepared to pay just as much as most of the other chain hotels. Granted the addition of the pool with kiddie area, hot tub and poolside kitchen with bar... More

Hotel is straight from the 50's. No fridge-no hairdryer- no shampoo. not many outlets for phones and computers but wifi worked well. Pool is big but not quiet and loaded with children. the parking is okay in the back but not out front. You must keep up with a metal key and like all of galveston the door is stuck... More

While the beach front view was great, the price is a bit steep for what you get. The rooms are outdated, carpet on the walls, beds old and lumpy, pillows lumpy too, carpets dirty and bathrooms from the 1980s. Lobby is quite a walk for most rooms. When we got to our room, I opened the window and it was... More
