Since I live in Houston and frequent the island for stays, I have to say The Commodore is by far one of my favorite places to stay. This place has great charm and reminds me of vacations with the fam in the 80's. First thing I love is that every room has a good beach view and a balcony, and we like the first floor rooms specifically because the back door opens up to the pool area which is really convenient. The pool location is great, you can look at the beach view as you swim, which is not possible at most places in galveston. It's a great family friendly place. Next thing I love about the The Commodore is that fact that it is CLEAN. It's not the fanciest, but Its always clean. The cleaning staff looks a it rough but they get the job done, s o they are okay by me. Room 109 is next to the gate and every time that bad boy closed it was loud. Room 101 which we stayed in most recently was right next to the office, and it was actually really quiet. We have already booked our next weekend excursion here.

I have visited Galveston many times with Grandchildren who are now adults and always stayed at the Commodore because its close to the beach and convenient to restaurants and entertainment.This trip was with greatgrandkids ages 3&4. The room was clean and comfortable for 4 of us. We had plenty of towels, clean linens, and excellent service. The front desk personnel was extremely friendly and helpful from check in to check out. The kids loved the cookies and juice after swimming in the evening. The elevator is slow and a little dirty and hot but just a minor inconvenience. The beach being so close is a major plus and the cost is very reasonable. The small breakfast was not important because the restaurant next door is conveniently close by. I do wish there was a small micro for warming leftovers but not a issue.I will only stay at the Commodore when in Galveston as I always have for many years because there has never been a reason to go elsewhere. Enjoyed our visit.
Perfect temp in the room at all times. Staff came every morning and cleaned room, changed sheets on bed, etc. They were very nice and friendly. Had a gorgeous view as we were on the 4th floor. Elevator was not slow at all!!! Had tag you stuck in the key hole that showed "Sleeping...Do not Disturb", turn it over and "Out and About". Free WIFI and it was extremely fast. Perfectly located on the Seawall Blvd and places to see, close to Restaurants, walking distance as well. Ate at The Gumbo Diner next door to Hotel and it was very good food and friendly staff. Little confused from other reviews on here, as we found it quite charming, clean and Staff could not have been nicer. I am sure the Hotel has been thru a few Hurricanes and with the Salt Water spraying on it each day there is no way to keep it as some quoted!!!! I would "absolutely recommend" staying here and we will stay here again when we go back.
