We stayed here in December. We skipped paying for the room with a seaside view and went with a more economical room in the back. The viewing pier is quite nice and the pool looked like a lot of fun. The breakfast was a real treat...they had a really nice woman who called everyone honey and baby, and she'd make...

This particular property is a bit of a hidden gem - it sits directly across from the gulf and gives a gorgeous view of it depending on what room you're in. There's a lovely swimming pool and hot tub, and the bar is right next to the hot tub(which was very convenient). I enjoyed the charm that came with staying...

For our five-day stay in Galveston during the second week of December, we looked at several hotels on Hotels.com and are very glad we picked Gaidos Seaside Inn. Entering our rooms were immediately noticed the very bright décor that you would expect at a beachfront hotel. Even though the hotel building was probably built decades ago, our room had a...

This is the best place to stay in Galveston for the price! The motel is very basic, but it's clean. There is a great swimming pool both kids and adults will enjoy and the ocean/beach is right across the street. They have a large hot tub located by the bar, so you can sit and relax while you sip on...

WOW! We have not received such poor and inattentive service in many years. I should have known it was going to be bad because when we checked in at the hostess stand, we were told we were early. A man asked the hostess if he should seat us and she snapped at him and said "no, they are early and...

We had a great meal tonight. Santini was really attentive to everything we needed and he went above and beyond. He was so friendly and helpful with our kids. Dinner was tasty and Santini's recommendations were very helpful. We would definitely return to this restaurant.
