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

We recently returned from vacation in Galveston. We stayed at the Commodore on the Beach hotel. One word to describe the facility, yuck! Upon arrival, we noticed dead flies in our beds and a large ball of hair in the shower. We never had enough towels and had to call every night to get more. Our trash wasn't emptied one... More

After a disappointing overnight stay at Gaido's I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel just next door. the room is very tiny, but the bed was comfortable. At least there was a blanket on the bed, unlike Gaidos which has a threadbare sheet and old pilled quilt. There is no coffee maker. I wish these older hotels would accommodate this... More

My family of 11 just left here and we all loved our rooms. 8 of us stayed in the family room and it was perfect for our needs. It was spacious, clean, and had a fridge in the room. The kids had a blast being able to stay in the same room. Meanwhile, the other 3 adults were able to... More

Have been coming to Galveston for years and am amazed at how high prices have gotten. $200 for a room here, although it did include cruise parking. The location is perfect, view is great, staff helpful, room clean but certainly not a $200 hotel. I priced all the hotels in Galveston and this was the best deal I could get.... More

There were four of us sharing a room (double beds) and surprisingly enough, it was great. We had a good time. The room was clean. The beds were clean (new beddings) and comfortable. We enjoyed the balcony and ocean view. The sunrise was spectactular! The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to nearly every attraction and eatery on the... More
