This is an excellent restaurant. The food was amazing, the portions were so generous. The menu had so many choices it was hard to decide. The service was gracious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and were well versed in the sources for the seafood items. We had reservations, and were seated in a reasonable amount of time... More

Gaido's restaurant has always been one of our favorite places, so we may have expected too much from the adjoining hotel, but Gaido's Seaside Inn is a dump. A one star rating is giving them way too much credit. The room smells musty, the mattress sinks almost to the floor and someone is using a jackhammer right outside our door.

Great location. Big room, close to restaurants with varied price points, recently refurbished. Room 134, handicapped room. Bouncy bed that really sank in when we sat down. King+ bed Bad water pressure in the shower, water disappeared when someone else flushed. Microwave, coffee maker and fridge in the room

Nice motel right on Seawall Blvd with access to just about everything. 1 mile walk(15 minutes?) north to Pier with a great view of the Gulf! Pool and hot-tub were nice with direct access to poolside bar. Staff was friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Exactly what you'd expect for a throwback beachside motor inn! I loved it.

I recently stayed at Gaidos Seaside Inn. The beds were not so comfortable and the room had seen better days. It was a seaside suite, "next to a very busy main street and noisy at 3 A.M. but the room did have a beautiful view of the sea and we spent quite a bit of time at the beach and... More

I had never stayed in a real American motel until my stay in Gaido's seaside Inn. We got a good deal through booking.com and the motel was easy to find, check in smooth and easy.

We went to Galveston on the 7th for a reunion & stayed 1 night at Gaido's Seaside Inn. I was embarrassed for the Gaido name. Our room stunk of mold/mildew the second we opened the door. Torn shower curtain, no working bulbs in lamp, filthy refrigerator, broken stand for the luggage, rusted hangers, A/C under par (very warm all night),... More

Stayed one night here before boarding a cruise ship at the Port of Galveston. The price was right on Hotels.com, but after driving up I was quickly disappointed. It is a very run down motel. The rooms are tiny, beds are tiny and shower is tiny. Found a roach in the sink of one of the rooms and found an... More
