Gaido's is an excellent place to stay. The manager, Julea H., was not only help, attentive and a pro, she was also a really good lookin' babe. The rooms were spacious and clean. No worries there at all. Great place.

Amazing view of the water. The room is comfortable and AC works very well. Housekeeping service is horrible!! Didn't clean or restock the room. And they left large bags of trash all around the property, right outside of doors.

Been going here for may years and it never disappoints. The staff is friendly, especially in the breakfast room where Ms. JoJo, Ms. Rose and Ms. Juanita provide exceptionally friendly service. The rates are quite reasonable, and many of the rooms were recently pleasantly updated. Convenient location as well.

We drove in late, we were happy to find a room available, very comfortable beds! We enjoy supporting family run businesses. This is a prime location and excellent way to see Galveston's Seaside Wall. Courtney L. at registration was so great and sweet. What a wonderful stay!

We had a gulf view room which cost $20 more per night and was worth it. This is an older resort with attitude and ambiance. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom with toilet and tub meet our needs. The room has a mini fridge and microwave which we used for coffee (French press style) and lunch items. Breakfast is...

Inexpensive, kitschy decor, clean, comfortable. Sort of "old Galveston". Nice seaside view for a reasonable price, friendly and helpful staff. Take advantage of the free breakfast in the little cafeteria next to the office. the pool is great for families, but big enough for exercise swimmers to not be too crowded. Good alternative to the beach, which can be seaweedy...
