    About this area


    Commodore on the Beach is located on the beach and in a walkable area with good shopping. Port of Galveston (Galveston Wharves) and Port of Galveston Cruise Terminal are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Stewart Beach Park and Moody Gardens. Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier and Galveston Schlitterbahn Waterpark are not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's central location.

    The view is amazing but the room and the entire property needs to be updated. The windows need to be cleaned. You pay the price of a nice hotel but you get motel accommodations. It could be so much better!

    When we arrived, the staff told us that our reservation was cancelled and that we should have called. I set it at 4:30 and we arrived at 3:00. They said that they cancel all reservations after 2:30. The lady told us that she probably didn’t have any left. We were so tired after driving driving for 14 hours. Then she said that she still had one left. The parking lot was not even full. The room had gnats. And bed bugs. The hotel was in very poor condition. The hallways smelled like trash from deteriorating food. There was painting going on so many accesses were blocked off while the painter painted. The breakfast consists of cereal, muffins or toast. There is no protein or fruit. The staff acted very rude through out the stay. This was my honeymoon and it was a great disappointment. I will stay anywhere else next time. On the last day there was smoke coming out of the vents. I had to sleep with the door open to the outside.

    Blow dryer and lights broken. Bathroom needs a deep cleaning. Lots of mold.
