Great location. Big room, close to restaurants with varied price points, recently refurbished. Room 134, handicapped room. Bouncy bed that really sank in when we sat down. King+ bed Bad water pressure in the shower, water disappeared when someone else flushed. Microwave, coffee maker and fridge in the room

Nice motel right on Seawall Blvd with access to just about everything. 1 mile walk(15 minutes?) north to Pier with a great view of the Gulf! Pool and hot-tub were nice with direct access to poolside bar. Staff was friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Exactly what you'd expect for a throwback beachside motor inn! I loved it.

I recently stayed at Gaidos Seaside Inn. The beds were not so comfortable and the room had seen better days. It was a seaside suite, "next to a very busy main street and noisy at 3 A.M. but the room did have a beautiful view of the sea and we spent quite a bit of time at the beach and... More

Inn was booked on Booking.com. Did not give me a choice of rooms. I did not know they have more than ocean front. They do. Although some may prefer the other rooms, I came there for ocean front. They let me upgrade to a room. Fine. Staff was great. However, the folks next door had many folks staying in their... More

I had never stayed in a real American motel until my stay in Gaido's seaside Inn. We got a good deal through booking.com and the motel was easy to find, check in smooth and easy. Our room was at the front, there seemed to be some work going on in terms of upgrading the rooms. The room was perfect, 2... More

We went to Galveston on the 7th for a reunion & stayed 1 night at Gaido's Seaside Inn. I was embarrassed for the Gaido name. Our room stunk of mold/mildew the second we opened the door. Torn shower curtain, no working bulbs in lamp, filthy refrigerator, broken stand for the luggage, rusted hangers, A/C under par (very warm all night),... More

Stayed one night here before boarding a cruise ship at the Port of Galveston. The price was right on Hotels.com, but after driving up I was quickly disappointed. It is a very run down motel.

We have stayed at Gaido's Seaside Inn on several trips to Galveston and I think the reason is Ms. Rose and Jo Jo. They are the most enjoyable, friendly staff any hotel could ever wish to have.

We spent three nights at Gaido's Seaside Inn. The accommodations were adequate, but no better than that. There is no closet, only a bar for hanging clothes but no hangars in our room. The maid service was nearly non-existent. The first day she made the bed but did no cleaning. The second day she did nothing at all. We weren't... More
