    Historical Traveler Reviews Commodore on the Beach Galveston

    We stayed here in AUG of 2001 & 2003

    from

    My wife & I got married in Galveston 2 yrs ago...we weren;t exactly well off at the time so we needed an affordable hotel. We stayed here and had a blast. The staff was nice and helpful for getting directions to the sites & restaurants. We are MUCH better off now and could comfortably stay anywhere on the island but we were without question going to this hotel. Its location rocks and the view cant be beat. It has great A/C & the beds are comfortable.

    Perfect Location

    from

    Room w/fridge had a pool outside my door with privacy from the road & beach across the street. Grab a towel and go! Food/drinks/etc.-a few steps away. Other sites a few minutes by car. Forget something? Just a second to go back & get it. WHAT A LOAD OFF! Now that's a vacation destination.

    Terrible management go elsewhere

    from

    after i made reservations 2 days later they inform me that the room was not available but there were other rooms available for a higher price sounds like to me they are price gouging don't waste your time with this place you might be surprised

    Good Place To Stay

    from

    No, this isnt your fanciest hotel on the island but it is a good place to stay. The room is nice and spacious and the bathroom is big and clean. The room was comfortable and the staff were very nice. Its a great place to stay with the family. And it is right by some great places to eat , plus the beach is right across the street.

    Very Pleased-Will Return

    from

    I must say, I was a little nervous about staying in a hotel I wasn't familiar with, but as soon as we arrived at the Commodore, I relaxed right away! The whole staff is VERY nice, and the place is kept very very clean. I never once saw a roach, and the swimming pool was WONDERFUL! The rooms are not fancy, but that isn't why we went to Galveston in the first place. The beds did not sagg, and my kids enjoyed the continental breakfast. If you're looking for posh surroundings, you might want to keep looking. But, if you are on a budget and fancy isn't on your list, I would say this hotel will work just fine! Oh...and when they say across the street from the beach, they aren't kidding! There is a traffic light right outside the hotel, and the view is really beautiful! We had a great time!

    Great Family Place!

    from

    Our family stayed here for 3 nights and the kids just loved it! The location is excellent, just cross the street at the light (no need to dodge the traffic) and you're at the beach. Personnally, we liked having to have tokens for ice; it kept people not registered using their facilities (what's wrong with that?) The people were very friendly and helpful and it's nice to know you can go to the lobby for free coffee, donuts, etc. We were drawn to this hotel on the internet because all their rooms (balconies) face the ocean - great to enjoy at night when the kids are finally asleep!This is our favorite hotel to stay now in Galveston - we'll be back!

    Great place for the money/location

    from

    This was a great place for the family. It was very affordable and in the best location (right next door to Joe's crab shack and Gaido's, the best seafood restaurant on the island. The continental breakfast is good, staff very courteous, a nice, clean place. Our kids loved it because you could walk right out of our 1st floor room and be at the pool! I could watch them from the patio. I've stayed here 3 times and have never seen a roach, and the beds did not sag. (That other rating was not typical of this motel.)

    Take the family somewhere else

    from

    After our kids where asleep, our room was invaded by 30+ roaches. Staff came to spray with Raid, but it didn't help. We slept lightly with lights on and scanned the room throughout the night. If you are going to Galveston just to party, this may be a good place, but if you are taking your family, spend the extra money for someplace newer and cleaner.

    Great Place to Stay on the Seawall

    from

    This hotel was very comfortable. The staff were pleasant, cordial and very giving of their time. There was a wide variety of foods to choose from for the Continitetal breakfast as well as a clean and comfortable area in which to enjoy it.

    I will certainly stay here again. Hopefully soon.

    Thank you for a pleasant stay.

    Awful hotel

    from

    I read everything about this hotel and nothing was ever said that it was a MOTEL - you had to have tokens to get a hand full of ice and you could hear every toilet flush. It would be fine for the drinking, partying crowd but not a family vacation. And for the cookies and milk at night ha ha they're just from a package. Sagging beds!!!

    "Galveston, Oh Galveston"

    "Galveston, Oh Galveston" I find myself thinking of Glen Campbell whenever I think of Galveston. Can't imagine why. Our campground is only 25 miles from Galveston, so we made a day trip out of it. The weather was cool, cloudy and windy. We thought it was supposed to be warm down here. Galveston is a city on the island of Galveston. It has become a major cruise departure port in recent years, as well as the winter home for hundreds, if not thousands of 'snowbirds' ...

    ... We finally got together at about 1:00 pm.

    Not only was there not enough time to visit a museum but by now I was too worn out to do anything more than just sit. We drove around for a while, searching for Texas barbecue! I was using my phone to search and Tammy was using her GPS to navigate, but we weren't finding anything (we wanted something we couldn't get in California!). Tammy ended up texting her boyfriend for a suggestion—she had done ...
