Hotel sits on the beach. All rooms face the ocean. The hotel was very clean. The staff was very nice. Great room rates for the view you get. Hotel also has a nice pool area. The picture was taken from our room balcony. I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.

We went to the hotel about 1230 hoping to check in early. We were told in no uncertain terms that check in was at 3. We weren't offered anything to pass the time. We left and checked in about 330. The room was good, the elevator was slow and HOT. The pool was nice and warm and clean. For the... More

A comfortable place to stay with a great view of the ocean. The price was right for the location and the room was clean. Room doesn't have a coffee pot or coffee or fridge in the room. The bathroom and bathtub were very small. I can be comfortable without the fridge and with a small bathroom but for the price... More

Paid almost $250 for a dumpy room that shouldn't have been over $125. The location is good, in that it's close to the beach, but this is also a rough/poor part of Galveston. Very sketchy neighborhood all around it. And some sketchy guests staying here. Not sure how they can afford these prices. Someone apparently OD'd in the room adjacent... More

My husband booked this bc the beach is right across the street. So. . . The facility is SUPER outdated; however, it was clean. Tuesday. Drain was broken, but my husband rigged it a bit. Breakfast was coffee/milk/cereal/muffins. Concierge was friendly. I probably wouldn't recommend this, but it was ok for the sleeping at this price.

No ac continental breakfast is a single serve cup of Frosted Flakes or Raisin Bran. No wifi even though they said it was working... And worst of all locks on doors automatically unlock for anyone to walk in!! A trash hotel that charges way too much for what little money they put into the place!! A TRUE DUMP!! Don't waste...

We stayed at the Commodore for a night away and really enjoyed it.... It was nothing fancy but the view was incredible.... The room was clean and the staff was great... I would stay there again when going to Galveston because the price was already very reasonable....

My son and I stayed here for 2 days. When we checked out he accidentally left his wallet in the nightstand. I called when I realized it. They mailed me the wallet, for which I am grateful. However there were gift cards and money missing. One of the $20 bills was a graduation gift from someone special and had special... More

Beds were clean and very comfortable. Nice view of the gulf. Staff was very helpful and cleaned our windows when we asked. We requested a fridge and extra towels. They delivered both promptly and clean. Breakfast is just cereal and packaged muffins. Afternoon cookies were just packaged cookies. Exterior entrances to all rooms are old and worn and detracts from... More

If you're just looking for a clean place to sleep across from the beach with a nice view of the water and a nice pool this is perfect. If you're looking for modern amenities like coffee pot in the room this is not it. The continental breakfast is cereal and muffins in a bag. The coffee in in the lobby... More
