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.

We recently stayed at the hotel for a family vacation, and awoke to low and behold, a bed bug infestation in the room. I took one of the adult full grown bed bugs to the manager, where he then came to the room..comped it..and then said well there were no live ones...wrong answer. I have the videos and pictures to...

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
