We had to book a room on fairly short notice so I was OK with having to settle for a double with 2 queen beds instead of a single king. Except that when we arrived, we found that "queen beds" was an overstatement. They were in fact full size beds and the bedding had stains from prior (mis?)use. Otherwise it's... More

So when we got here, we looked for our room, 426, n passed it like 3 times. It turns out it was across all the other rooms so we didn't get a view of the nice pool n the beach right in front, nor a balcony. It's a family room, pretty roomy but it has a window facing a wall... More

We stayed here in mid July. We had a pool view room and were able to walk directly out of our door to the pool. Each room had its own patio with chairs or balcony room with chairs. The view was really nice. They were completely booked but it never felt crowded. Hotel is on corner at red light so... More

This hotel needs a makeover. No lockbox, coffee maker, refrigerator or microwaves in rooms. The elevator needs to be seriously worked on, you can climb the stairs quicker than you can get the elevator up and down. Overall we were not pleased.

This is an older property on the seawall, relatively well maintained, shows its age a little. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Good location, within walking distance of anything on the seawall. The elevator really showing its age, works well but is extremely slow. Breakfast is not the greatest but will suffice. Parking is at a premium, and difficult... More

I read many reviews on this place, so I had my doubts. It is old and somewhat run down. The staff we dealt with was friendly and helpful. We arrived way before check in. They suggested we dress for the beach in the restroom and return in a few hours. When we came back, they suggested a place to get... More

The room is very clean, I and my wife really enjoyed to stay here, the breakfast is good I have no problem with the security problem like other review said. The hotel is near the beach and have a great view. Price is fairly cheap compared with other inn near by.

I loved my stay here! The rooms are older, the beds are really comfy, the elevator is slow but works and many restaurants in walking distance! The ocean view was stellar! I asked for a higher floor and they put me in 415 which is the middle of the rooms and top floor! I wish I could have stayed longer!... More

This hotel is near the Pleasure Pier and a lot of great places to eat or hangout. All rooms face the beach from the balcony . Staff is courteous and very polite, coffee is great and fun is unforgettable.

If this is your dream trip, do not consider The Commodore. Choose a better place. This hotel is in need of repair and renovation. The rooms do face the beach and they have a nice pool, those are both good. The room was clean, also good. The downside is, rooms are small and outdated. They don't come with a fridge.... More
