The Hotel itself is outdated and alittle run down , but the View , and location make up for that .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... More

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... More

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.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend and we have had a blast. Never made it downstairs for their breakfast but went next door to Gumbos Diner and it was fantastic. The beach was right across the street and the pool was great. We didn't care for the parking but all in all we would stay here again.... More

Great location! The mini frig worked awesome; kept everything really cold! The view from the balcony was nice (view was kind of obstructed by a big palm). Our balcony was broke and cut my leg, car was broke in to the second night there, slow elevator, the tv did not work very well, very small shower area & the majority... More

We stayed for 1 night and paid $139, last minute. You are definitely paying for the location. The facility is kind of retro and a bit outdated, but if you plan on spending most of your time at the beach, it is ok. We had a room on the bottom floor. The back doors open directly to the pool..

The front desk lady was nice and the gentleman made sure we had somewhere to park, he even offered free parking for our cruise duration! We had already paid for our parking at EZ-Cruise so we didn't utilize the parking lot here. Location is directly across from the seawall and within walking distance to lots of places! We walked to...

Fantastic pool, walking distance from a number of restaurants and bars and in spitting distance of the beach. This hotel may not be new, but it is a good value stay. We had plenty of space and were right in the mix of what was going on.
