Never having been to Galveston, we made a reservation and were a bit scared with the appearance of the exterior. However, our room appeared to be newly furnished, very clean, and to be able to lie in bed and look at the ocean made it very worthwhile. Would come again.

Nice, clean room. Bathroom an odd shape. Had a 2 double bed poolside room. Stayed a Friday night, was a little loud being poolside, but not bad. Front desk staff was friendly and informative. Lots of plugs for electronics. Less than a minute to walk to beach.

I booked the Commodore hotel a number of weeks ago and wondered whether I had made a wise choice or not with conflicting good and bad reviews. The bottom line: If you're looking for a modest, budget priced place, the Commodore is great. If you're looking a luxury hotel, look elsewhere. You don't get a posh hotel at these prices.... More

Just an FYI if you are considering this Hotel - DON'T. We booked the room and got a very short to the point email confirming out reservation with our reservation number....BUT here is what happened when calling to let them know we would be late they said they do not hold you room after 8 pm - NO EXCEPTIONS. They... More

We rented a room to be front & center during the Mardi Gras parade. This seems to be what most of the locals do because the whole place was party central. We did not sleep in the room we rented because we were staying with family on the island. There are great views of the beach & the pool is... More

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
