we have been cruising out of Galveston since 2006. we always stay at gaido's because they have a very good cruise special price and you can leave your car there. we ride a taxi to the ship ( usually about 15 bucks for the ride ). much cheaper than parking at the pier. we have never had anything happen to...

It's about a mile from the Pleasure Pier which makes it easy walking. Right on the seawall. Price was a tad higher than it should be but being across the street from the ocean is pretty good. The room was nothing to write home about. 2 double beds. No microwave or fridge. Room was not super clean but kind of... More

I stayed here for one night, the night before a cruise. The price couldn't be beat, and they let you park your car there for the duration of your cruise if you stay at least one night before your cruise. You get an extra few bucks off when you check in if you show your boarding pass. Good boarding pass.... More

From the street, Gaido's appeared to be one of those motels that I'd never consider staying. The front desk is at the back of the inn and parking to check-in is somewhat awkward. But, once we were inside, the ladies who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were in the newly renovated part and were very... More

the only thing I can say nice, is that it is in a good location, right across the street from the ocean. We arrived late, like 1-2 am, we had trouble locating the office for check in, when we found it, we had to check in through a slot like a bank. We were getting our belongings out of the... More

I loved the beautiful ocean view from our motel room on the 2nd floor. We came in the night before we were to board our cruise ship and had time to take the kids down to the ocean to find seashells and enjoy the beauty. This motel in Galveston was a great beginning to our AWESOME 2014 Family Bahamas Cruise... More

Twice a year I come to Galveston Island for a Photo Shoot / Girls Get Away trip. Our trip also happens to be the same time the birds are migrating which is another reason we come this time of year. We always stay at Gaido's Seaside Inn. This trip/stay was especially nice since our room was just re finished with... More

On a last minute whim, I decided to book a hotel in Galveston, for a quick getaway. I ended up choosing Gaido's for the price, and the expansive pool. We stayed in late September, and paid less for our room at Gaido's than we would have at Motel 6. It was cool and rainy, but the hot tub was nice... More

My family and I stayed here one night before going on a cruise. It was great! First time I have ever slept on a hotel bed that didn't hurt my back:) The staff was great! The guy at the desk even hunted down a couple of pencils for us so grandkids could do homework :) Breakfast was very good too.... More
