Rented a room here for a girls weekend for a friend's birthday. Clean room, great view and location. Close to dining, shopping, etc. No frills, but great value for the price. Staff were attentive and friendly.

Location is beautiful and the room adorable. No coffee in the room however there is 24/7 coffee service in the lobby. The room was also very clean. Continental breakfast isn't worth stopping for however Gumbo's restaurant is right next door. Would definitely stay here again.

We took our granddaughter for a long weekend of play and Pokémon hunting and this was a perfect location. The room was clean and just fine for a budget-friendly trip. The breakfast was cereal and packaged sweet rolls, so we ate out. Good restaurants are within easy walking and the Pleasure Pier is a little longer walk. We even had...

The Service and Ocean View makes up for the Outdated yet Clean Hotel. Main two reasons we selected to stay at this particular hotel was the location which is excellent and it does not allow pets so says.... pet owner of two precious cats. Although bathtub had slow drainage maintenance quickly responded, but attempts to repair was futile and we...

This might be for you if you want to spend more time away instead of in this hotel. The swimming pool looks good and the children enjoyed night swimming. Breakfast food is mediocre with high fat muffins, cereal, and oatmeal but provides plenty of coffee. I would not stay in suite 426 as the air conditioner did not work well...

The Hotel itself is outdated and alittle run down , but the View , and location make up for that . We go down to Galveston 3 or 4 times a year from Dallas and it's where we always end up staying . It's a little pricy for what you get during peek Holiday times but every Hotel raises thier...

The Commodore is a great place to stay. Every room has a view of the beach and the pool. Clean, quiet and staff is friendly and very accommodating. Continental breakfast every morning and cookies in the lobby every evening. Already have a reservation to stay there again in February.

We wanted a couple nights on the beach before driving back to Vegas, so we chose the Commodore on the Beach. The design of the building guaranteed us an ocean front view from our room, we asked for and were given a room on the top floor. We were hoping to sleep listening to the ocean with the balcony door...

Very nice place on the beach. Within walking distance to local restaurants and bars. Beautiful views! Close to Galveston Historic Pier. An older building but lots of character. Definitely would stay here again if in the area.
