We once again stayed at our favorite hotel in Galveston.. GAIDOS.... Our 3rd stay and will always be our choice. The minute we get there, a relaxed, fun time starts. We love the retro, resort feel to the place. We always get an Oceanfront upstairs room so we can go outside our door and sit in the chairs right outside...

Surprised to find a room for Sunday night at $79.00, 2nd floor water view. Switchboard was a nightmare! Finally just drove in. Room quoted was much more expensive.Took a bottom floor room. Somewhat noisy. Did finally quiet down. Kind of worn around the edges. Roaches in bathroom. Was nice to be right across the street from the water.

We rented a double queen upstairs over pool during the week. The pool is beautiful, probably the best in Galveston. Was nice to have a walk up full liquor bar at your disposal in pool area. Large hot tub right by bar. The hotel is old but our beds were comfortable and the place was quiet. Walk to the beach...

My husband and I went to Galveston for an anniversary weekend and decided to try Gaido's because of the location. The value was not equal to the cost. The room we chose was large but the furniture in it was torn and broken. We made a pile of the broken items and reported it to the housekeeping staff and the...

Gaido's was the only name I remembered from a trip to Galveston years ago. So I wanted to revisit it. The restaurant and hotel is fourth generation owned by the original family and the history is fascinating. It is, in essence, a motel. A remodel is in progress and it will be nicer when all the rooms are redone. We...
