2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
I’ve been staying at the Commodore since I was a kid. It’s my favorite hotel on the island. It’s not fancy, but it’s always been clean and convenient. The pool has always been very nice. This time, they called me a week before my scheduled arrival to tell me the elevator was out and the pool was closed. I was going to stay there anyway so I kept my reservation. Then, 30 minutes outside of Galveston I get a phone call. Whatever work they were having done, someone cut the chiller line and there was no AC in the hotel. They had to cancel my reservation. I was there on the island five days and in that time they never open back up. I never learned why the pool was closed. From the street there didn’t appear to be anything wrong with the pool area. It seems like they are just letting the property go. It’s very sad and disappointing.

We had reservations. Motel was closed due to no electric. Did not call us even though it was out the day before so they knew people would be arriving. We arrive to check in and 2 ladies sitting there not doing anything, they could have been calling people to let us know!!! Very poor customer service, very inconsiderate. We then scrambled to find another hotel after driving for 4 hours!

Location and ocean views are the only reasons to consider staying here. Everything else is broken and unserviceable, making what appears to be a reasonable price totally unreasonable. We’ve been coming here for years but unfortunately will not return.

Elevator was broken. No hot water. No water pressure in shower. Wi-Fi did not work. Door would not shut. Toilet was not cleaned. Muddy footprints on the bathroom floor. TV would not shut off. Roaches in the bathroom. Continental breakfast? Not at this dump. Oh yeah, almost forgot the pool was green. All of this for $200.00 a night. Absolute bargain. The disease is free.

Elevator out of service. Pool was bionic green with mold growing out of the waterfall. Air vents were nasty. Water dripping from ceiling and back door didn’t close. This place should NOT be operating.
