We booked Gaido's as a spontaneous vacation to Galveston. We would normally book a condo or apartment beachside but could not find one at last minute. The location is great...right across from the beach and within walking distance to the pier and restaurants. Great location! The pool was amazing. Beautiful and has a bar and nice hot tub if you...

Filthy Inn and rude employees! Absolutely the filthiest hotel I've ever seen. Bathroom was disgusting and had obviously not been cleaned before our arrival. Carpet was stained with unidentifiable red stains and had melted candy embedded in it. I wouldn't board my dog here. I really don't understand how they could pass a health departments inspection! You've been warned.

Read many reviews on Gaido, most were "Okay": Family resort, older décor, nice pool, simple breakfast. Seemed like it would work for myself, my daughter and 2 kids (10 & 11). A mere mention of a "band" on week ends. Well let me tell you when I asked at the desk about not wanting a noisy room and is it... More

I can't add anything different than others except to say that this very sturdy hotel walls prevent the party from reaching your room if you're in near the pool. By the way, you will get waffles and breakfast burritos daily. No fresh fruit or yogurt if you intend to eat in any sort of healthful way, you should bring your... More

Been staying at Gaido's for 15 years and always been fairly pleased. Since starting remodel a few years ago, the price has gone way up, but the room we stayed in this last time was still the same old room. Main light didn't work, tub didn't drain, painting missing from wall, 2 of 4 pillows were so flat they were... More

Hotel was okay. Lots of partying. Live bands at the attached Nick's restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of inappropriate things going on children shouldn't see. Rooms are dated and small. Dirty feel in the rooms but the view is amazing. Not worth the 212.00 we spent for 2 nights.

Good hotel! It's worth extra money to have a beach view!The pool was nice and had a waterfall! Good location you can walk right across the street to the beach, you are down the street from the restaurant's, and close to all activities, good hot breakfast!

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.
