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

We have stayed all along seawall drive and keep coming back to this place. Excellent beach cam. Close to everything. GREAT WALKING and good excercise to go for long walks past PLEASURE PIER and great barefoot beach walking. They have upgraded the rooms a bit. We love the people, they always help us enjoy our stay.

This was one of the places where we stayed. We liked the location a lot and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was limited to only a few items and the mattresses needed to be replaced. The rooms could have been a little cleaner and better kept. We did like the fact that you could exist the room...

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
