Good selection of seafood and steak. We were all happy with our selections. White linen table clothes so dress accordingly. Staff was very friendly and service was great. A little pricey but certainly worth it. Best calamari I've had in a while.

My wife and I spent out anniversary weekend at Gaido's. I'll start with the negatives, end with the positives. As many have pointed out on here, the breakfast staff was very rude. My wife thought that she was going to be hit by one of the ladies. One of the mornings I was down there, I ended up helping translate... More

I stayed the week-end with my family and it was a great experience. It was my daughter's birthday and we were visiting the island, the room was small but clean. I am very picky so the first thing I check was the bathrooms, sinks, and beds and they all passed. At check-in the representative was very courteous and helpful, and... More

Stayed here the night before a cruise, very clean only negative is it is an older hotel. Clerk was very helpful, we had a courtyard room which is on the backside of the hotel. Great location right next to the Gaido's Seafood Restaurant on the sea wall.

Stayed 2 nights before cruise. Clean rooms, nice pool, close to attractions in Galveston. Staff was nice. Hot breakfast of scrambled eggs or breakfast burrito included. The only reason for the 4 is I felt our first night's stay was a little pricey.

We enjoyed our stay here. While it is an older motel, the rooms are clean. The rates are reasonable and there are two restaurants on site--Nick's and Gaido's--both with excellent seafood. The motel is located right by the beach. And the complimentary breakfast is good with freshly made burritos, eggs, waffles, etc.

First the negatives....Yes, the facility is old. But it was clean, and the cleaning staff took very good care of us, coming in to clean several times during our two four-day stays. They were always very polite and asked if we needed anything. We appreciated them. Second, this motel is noisy because it is right on Seawall Boulevard, and the... More

You get what you pay for: an old, rundown and noisy seaside motel that is more suitable for spring break than for a romantic getaway. The walls are paper thin, there is no privacy, everyone can see you come and go. If your room is near the pool, you're also near the very busy boulevard. This means you'll need industrial... More

Room was nice, advertise free breakfeast. Staff got rude if they thought u asked for to much. I had 3 family members, wanted 3 muffins and she said, "you get that's it". Guess free breakfast is for half your people staying. Soured the whole stay, her being so rude.
