2nd year to visit during 4th of July. Fireworks show was EPIC and literally right above you. They tightened up parking so wasn't an issue like the previous years. Maid service consistent. No complaints of the room due to convenience of location and decent rates. Booked in Feb for July visit, reservation wasn't screwed up at all. Nice bar/pool area...

My wife and I stayed at Gaidos Seaside Inn on July 11th and had a great time. We had a king room on the back side of the building. Our room was quiet, clean, large, and the bed was really comfortable. The room had a nice TV, a full sized fridge, and the AC was ice cold. The pool area...

I was disappointed in the room I stayed in. It needed updating and the room was not as clean as it should be. I was also locked out of my room for 30 minutes, the key card would not let me in. Otherwise, the staff at Gaido's were super nice and helpful.

Went for wife's birthday with the inlaws. Crystal B was our server and was top notch- great service excellent food.

It was not a huge issue but when market price is high most restaurants will warn...

The room is incredibly small with two double beds, a table, two chairs, small fridge, and a microwave. One bed was too soft and hurt my back but the other one was comfy. Both had 4 pillows each which was good. The ac worked well and the room maintained a very comfortable temperature. It was on the first floor with...

Art was one of the most professional and easy-going waiters we have ever experienced. His recommendations for appetizer, main course and desert were spot on. Food was just as awesome! Gaidos has returned excellence in fine dining to Seawall Boulevard!

This was a great experience with 6 couples. Chrystal was our waitress and was very good in all she did for us. Entertaining and a great waitress. The food was excellent as we had a variety of orders. If we ever get back to the area we will definitely dine here again.
