Good-nice, friendly staff. location with beach across the street and light at the nearby corner nice pool refrigerator and miicrowave sink not inside bathroom (a plus for 4 people sharing the room) the kind of room you don't have worry about coming in from the beach and getting dirt on the carpet. Bad-still allows smoking around the pool. (I know... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Rooms are not fancy but comfortable. Only draw back, there was not a coffee pot or hairdryer in room. The pool area is very nice and they had a band playing by the pool the night we stayed. Having a full service restaurant on site was also a plus and the food was very good.

My room was horable. The carpet was so dirty you could grow cotton in it. Ther was graffiti on the wall, no coffee pot , refrigerator, or hair dryer. Front desk management are jerks like you would expect from a flea bit motel.

Last year we had a disappointing trip to Galveston. We stayed in a terrible chain hotel and it was so foggy you could barely make out the sea wall. Out for an evening walk through the mist this little oasis appeared with a beautiful lit hot tub and heated pool. It turned out to be Gaido’s Seaside Inn and right... More

Took an overnight trip to Galveston from Houston to get away for the day and enjoy the beach - it's definitely not fancy or new but you get free breakfast and the pool area is great for kids. Best part was the hot tub and tiki bar! Plus directly across from the ocean - will definitely be coming back!

Stayed 4/3nights and the room was small but very clean very friendly staff.!! Great breakfast tacos. Other than the rooms needing to be updated it was a great stay and will stay again I'm sure.My kids loved the pool and didn't want to get out.!!

great place nice pool as they advertise. Rooms are nothing special. But pool and the outdoor atmosphere help pick up the slack, so to speak. We were told we would have a poolside room, it was but very near the end. not close to the pool not close enough for me to consider it pool side. however it was beach... More

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.
