Wanted to stay at a hotel that was not part of a chain . It is an old hotel but well maintained. The staff was very helpful and the location was great. Would have liked to have a safe in our room. Would consider staying here again.

We have stayed here twice. The location is great for access to restaurants/bars and not have to drive. Free beach across the street also. The hotel and rooms are older but ok. I would not recommend staying here in the really hot summer months as the A/C in the rooms couldn't keep up when we were there in August. No... More

The view is great. The hotel itself is a little run down. The staff was exceptional. But, there was still hair on the bathroom sink (like mustache hair) when we checked in. Uh, so how clean was the rest of the room? Makes you wonder. We did have a balcony with a view of the ocean but the weather did... More

The first night we arrived, (for Valentines weekend), the night staff was great and very informative. The room we stayed in was little old and somewhat smelly, even down to the sheets and towels. The view was awesome. However, the next morning (on Val Day) our room went up in smoke as we were getting ready for our day. The... More

If you're planning on staying the night in Galveston after drinking all day, then this place is just fine. However, if you're staying for longer than a night, you may want to look elsewhere. This place is just as expensive/inexpensive as several other hotels in the area, so it's really not a price bargain. The toilets flushed for ten minutes... More

If you are just looking for a place to stay the night, this is the place to stay. It is a little dated, but you really can't beat the location. The rooms are very clean, and well kept. The price is usually one of the best in Galveston. As I said, this is good for a night or two, but... More

We stayed at Commodore on the Beach January 3, 2017. I booked this hotel online because we were sailing out of Galveston on a cruise the next day and I had asked the cruise line for a pre-boarding hotel and they were all about $200 per person per night (there were 3 of us in the group). We wanted a... More

Our second time at this hotel - this time I got a much better price. Friendly service, great location. Yes, it's an older hotel but it's clean and we enjoyed feeding the birds on the balcony. They do have free cruise parking, but I learned the last time that cabs are hard to get on cruise days, so we drove... More

This is an older property, but renovated, very nicely appointed, and very reasonable for the seasonal and off season. Both the day and evening staff are very hospitable and willing to give sightseeing and any travel tips for your stay. The room appeared fresh and clean. The bathroom was immaculate and had nicer than expected modern fixtures, including shower and... More

Yes it is an older hotel...but for us it was a great place to stay. Within walking distance to where we wanted to go. The desk clerk got us an upper room with a king even though we had a booking for 2 double beds. It was clean and well lit and a great view from the balcony. Friendly staff... More
