My family and I stayed here one night before going on a cruise. It was great! First time I have ever slept on a hotel bed that didn't hurt my back:) The staff was great! The guy at the desk even hunted down a couple of pencils for us so grandkids could do homework :) Breakfast was very good too.... More

The bedding on very comfortable beds was layered w/sheets and soft quilted comforter and lots of pillows. Check out was noon which was great. Breakfast yummy, just go early. Most importantly, the...

I love a clean room. Our room at Gaido's was quite clean if a little worn. My only complaint with housekeeping is that the freshening powder appeared to have been dusted into the climate control unit. So, overnight when we were actually in the room we were assaulted with airborne particles of it. Fortunately, in a two night stay we... More

I've enjoyed eating at Gaido's Restaurant for years, but I've never stayed at the inn before, The rooms are on the basic side (hence the $89 room rate), but the beach is right there in front of you. And you've got some great food -- other than the fantastic restaurant onsite -- in walking distance. And you can easily drive... More

Okay, to be fair we got in late and tired. This review is about the room. While the pool looks great for all ages with a walk in area for toddlers to a foot deep it's off season and a bit cool. The hotel is across the street from the beach and walking distance to some decent food. The room... More

Gaido's is built on the sea wall on Seawall Blvd so the water's right there. Easy access. The pool looks like an oasis pool and has two waterfalls, one for the adult side and one for the kids, where the pool is entered at 1inch depth and deepens like a beach. They recently added the Redfish Poolside Bar and redfish... More

Eaten at Gaido's many times but never stayed at the Inn. With an $80 a night price for the weekend I couldn't resist! This was the rate for the basic room towards the back of the Inn and this turned out to be quite basic- a little too penitentiary like for my taste. When we inquired about another room we... More

Very enjoyable 2 night stay in room 261. Small quarters but very comfy bed, nice shower. Loved the private balcony area overlooking the pool and gulf. It's an older hotel, but the price and location outweigh other options for me. Also enjoyed Gaidos Restaurant and Nicks. Pecan Pie and bacon wrapped shrimp and crab cakes...heaven!

I have never written a review for anything, but I am making this exception. Because I make a point of reading the negative reviews, I almost decided against this hotel. However, staying here was a very good decision. The staff was friendly and the room though dated was comfortable. Our room was on the courtyard. It seemed that there was... More
