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...

My wife and I went there for a quick weekend getaway, unknowing it was a haven for over aged drinkers with crappy live music, a surly breakfast cook and, what I presume is a disease infested comforter.

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...

This hotel is is a joke. Pool is pubic. That's right, all the locals get in free. With all the clan. No less than 50 kids in the crowded, MURKY BROWN pool. Now for the room....
