This place was rundown and the staff lied about services they offer when I made 2 reservations. You are not allowed to leave your vehicle there and there is no shuttle service to and from the cruise ships. The outside of the hotel was in bad shape and dirty. The rooms were okay because they seemed clean. I did not... More

I read the bad reviews but decided to make my own decision. This hotel is fine. We arrived at 3:30 pm. Checked in with No problem. The guy at the front desk was very polite (Even after a coworker gripped at him). Told us what time breakfast was and what was served. Breakfast consists of Cereal, Instant Oatmeal, and Muffins...

The Commodore on the beach is a nice place to stay. The place is Older but for it's age is very well maintained. It's Close to a lot of things...restaurants, the jetty, pleasure pier, the beach. The only thing that would've made this better that is in their control would have been a hot breakfast. They only offer continental. Luckily,... More

I'm not sure where the bad reviews came from. I grew up at this place and I still love it. Granted I think the counter tops and elevator are the original ones everything else has been redone and updated. The place is great with several places to eat at right next door. You can also walk right across the street... More

For a last minute booking this room was pretty good. The view of the ocean was incredible only a 2min walk to the seawall which is a street crossing away. double beds are not queen but can easily accommodate two people, they are on the extra soft side but are overAll ok. Nice friendly employees, the pool is well kept... More

The commodore on the Beach is an older motel but one that we enjoy staying in. The only thing I really don't like about it is that if you didn't make your reservations through them and if you are not there by 6:00 they will cancel your reservations and leave you holding the bag without a place to stay.

This hotel is in quite a good location for restaurants & bars. Our room was on the second floor with lovely views of the ocean. But, it's an older property & in bad need of some renovation & did notice some odd smells? The lift like the hotel was in bad shape & didn't feel confident using it preferring to... More

Arrived in Galveston, but received a call while having lunch. Went to the hotel to personally cancel the reservations, but also to look at the room. It was a nice room for such an old property. We thought the room rate was a bit high, but the location and view are very nice. Except for some strange odors we did... More

My experience with the commodore started with the check in. The staff was very rushed, not paying attention to anyone and trying to process everything without paying attention. Next the parking is very crappy. The parking spaces are VERY narrow and close. When we arrived to our room the TV was not working at all. We asked for someone to... More
