This place (MOTEL) is worth $86/night and it makes sense to me why most people gave a high rated. Unforgettably we were there one night but it was on labor day weekend . We booked it last minutes like two weeks before the cost was $200; this cost we could have a nice hotel and great service. The motel looks... More

The staff is friendly. We visit about four or more times a year. We enjoy it because it's a good value, it's safe, and it's close to everything. No large crowds or elevators. A new pool area and suites are added.

As always our stay at Gaido's was fabulous. We had some reservations about the new pool/bar experience as we travel with small kids. Except for Friday night, which was harrowing, the pool had a normal amount of visitors and no chaos. We didn't go to the pool Saturday night fearing a repeat. On Friday the pool was crowded, there was... More

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

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

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
