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

Dear Joseph, Thank you very much for choosing us as your place to stay on the island.

They are bit more expensive but worth it I assure you. We... More

So we stayed here because we didn't like the commodore which is right across the street and it was the best idea. Walking to the beach takes you like 30 seconds. The beds are a little too soft, which is why there are only 4 stars. However, the breakfast is awesome. You can make your own waffles which are soooo... More

Had another great stay at the Gaidos Inn. Staff is always excellent and have to give a shout out to Big Kevin, manager of Nicks pool bar and restaurant. When I visit Houston I always come down to Galveston and stay at the Gaidos. Thanks for the Hospitality!

We were going on a cruise on 9-13 and picked Gaido's to stay at for a couple of nights pre-cruise, and we couldn't have made a better choice. The hotel is nice, comfortable beds and clean, and the people who work the front desk are super. We even had a maintenance man knock on our door one day after we... More

We are retired so we booked during the week after school started and to get a better rate($79). That't about all it's worth to me. I would have never paid $200 to stay here even if it was on a holiday weekend. There weren't any accomodations in the room, i.e. microwave, coffee pot, iron or small fridge. The cable TV... More

Food was delicious, service was slow but worth the wait. Melody knew the menu and elegantly served us. The food presentation was superb and the food was tremendous ! The cost was fair. But we waited a long time before it was served.
