This hotel is is a joke. Pool is pubic. That's right, all the locals get in free. With all the clan. No less than 50 kids in the crowded, MURKY BROWN pool. Now for the room.... No microwave, no hair drier, no coffee pot, ice makers out of ice the whole time we stayed, locals using all the parking lot,... More

We stayed 7/31/15-8/4/15. Location: Location could not have been much better. Right near a good part of the beach and walking distance to many fine restaurants. Property was kept clean and we had easy access to parking right in front of our room every day. Room: The room did have new bedspreads and pillows and the bed was comfortable. The... More

Older hotel that has been recently remodeled. We had 3 rooms for a group of 2 adults and 9 teenage girls. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Can't beat the location. We were there mid-week, and rooms were quiet at night even though we were poolside. The girls loved that they could open door and be at the pool, or... More

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.
