The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My room had a lovely view of the water and it's easy to get from the hotel to the seawall across the street. The room was clean with a nice sitting area and desk inside. Two chairs were on the balcony, which made for a nice after dinner relaxation spot. Close to nearby... More

Writing this review as I'm sitting in the room, old man at the desk was VERY rude and disrespectful. I asked if he was the manager, he stuttered with a "no" then a "yes". When i asked why he hesitated, he said he's the oldest one there so that makes him a manager. Then i asked to speak with the... More

Staff is really friendly and ready to help. Not really continental breakfast BUT I like that they provide cookies and drinks to late at night. The room has a hippy feel to it and not very clean but we were okay with it. TV worked and beds were comfy. It takes time to walk places but with the view you... More

Came to galveston on a spur of the moment and have always wanted to stay here. Yes hotel is older, but they are taking care of it. Beds were comfortable. View was worth a million bucks but price of hotel did not break the bank. Was very happy with our stay.

The location of this hotel is fantastic, directly across the street from the Gulf. Every room, above the first floor, has a balcony with full view of the water. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast consists of cereal with milk, muffins, juice and coffee. The hotel and rooms are very old and worn out looking Although my room... More

We needed a reasonably priced room that included cruise parking. In the 80's my daughters and I had often stayed at Commodore on the Beach. We decided to return to our old friend. There were pleasant surprises: the rooms had been updated and were very clean. Beds and pillows were comfortable, and the pool was warm enough for swimming in... More

When I checked in, I was greeted by a very friendly fellow and I felt very welcome. Then I got to my room. It smelled as soon as I opened the door. The heating/cooling vents were filthy as was the carpet. In fact, the air in the room was so bad that the only way I could tolerate it was... More

The staff and the location are the reason for not wanting to leave. Dolores, Donnie, Donald, and the tall young guy at the desk are among the nicest and most accommodating people I have ever dealt with at hotels! I completely missed breakfast time and Dolores made sure I did not go hungry! You cannot beat the location being so... More

I checked into hotel on the 14th of November for 1 night. The front desk agent was rude. I advised him I could not find parking close to the hotel and asked him if I could stay parked in the front. He stated no - just park down the street. I explained to him I was leaving on a week... More
