We decided at the last minute to get away to Galveston, TX for a few days. My parents & I had stayed numerous times at Gaido's Motor Inn during the 1970's & 80's. I thought we might give this motor inn a try, because of past positive experiences. I also know that over the years, things do change (& sometimes... More

We had upgraded to a deluxe twin room when booking but I have no idea what made it deluxe. It wasn't even facing the gulf although they did change that for us at check-in. The beds were comfortable. No coffee maker in the room. Was not impressed with the breakfast selection. On the positive side all the staff were friendly.... More

Let me start out with the positive. The view was nice and the pool was very nice and clean. Also, the rooms were cleaned well. The breakfast was better than most hotel breakfasts and the staff was friendly. There were only a few things that bothered me. First, you had to have a hotel key as well as a wrist... More

Our room was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and 1 of the most important things for me is the shower, which was perfect.( nothing worse than no water pressure when trying to remove sand and saltwater) The staff were great, I absolutely have nothing negative to say about this hotel.

Hard to beat the location & price makes it attractive to the budget minded traveler. They have a great pool, but I didn't find it as family friendly as others. The pool connects to a bar & on the Sunday night that we stayed it was very loud around our room by the pool & music from the patio blared... More

Visited Gaido's for the first time and the food was absolutely wonderful! Cody, our server was so attentive and courteous. Prices are a bit high but well worth it for good quality food. Really enjoyed our experience and will return on our next visit to Galveston.

Has the potential to be awesome but has some flaws. They need to update the showers (dinky water pressure & noisy), have bigger beds (full size to queen) and have hair dryers. Has a cool vintage vibe and you can tell it's a classic throwback motel, just needs some updated amenities. The beds, while smaller than I like, were very... More

2nd year to visit during 4th of July. Fireworks show was EPIC and literally right above you. They tightened up parking so wasn't an issue like the previous years. Maid service consistent. No complaints of the room due to convenience of location and decent rates. Booked in Feb for July visit, reservation wasn't screwed up at all. Nice bar/pool area... More

My wife and I stayed at Gaidos Seaside Inn on July 11th and had a great time. We had a king room on the back side of the building. Our room was quiet, clean, large, and the bed was really comfortable. The room had a nice TV, a full sized fridge, and the AC was ice cold. The pool area... More

I was disappointed in the room I stayed in. It needed updating and the room was not as clean as it should be. I was also locked out of my room for 30 minutes, the key card would not let me in. Otherwise, the staff at Gaido's were super nice and helpful.
