"Just okay."
The front desk was nice and got us checked in without issue. The location of the hotel is really nice. The pool looked nice, lots of people were using it during our stay but we never did. The room was clean(ish) and cool when we got there. There was urine and toilet paper in the toilet and one of our pillows had a weird stain on it. The beds are not comfortable. To wash your hair it is definitely a challenge! The sprayer comes out of the wall at around 5' and then sprays down at you around your stomach... it worked great for our child. The hotel is older so there are cracked tiles and signs of age all a round but nothing too terrible. The elevator is slow and hot to the point where you can hardly breath in the middle of the afternoon. But there are stairs at either end of the hotel. The balcony is small but the view is great. The interior walls of the room are brick so we never heard our neighbors once the entire stay. You can hear the people in the pool and the housekeeping cart early in the morning though. Our room wasn't cleaned NOT ONE TIME during our stay. I'm not really sure why, we never asked them not to clean and I had to ask for clean towels every single day. Parking is slim pickings plus they share a parking lot with diner next door... so get there, park your car and walk or take a cab. This was our last stay at the Commodore... $540 was too much for a 3 night stay. It's not a terrible hotel if you can get it for around $100 or even under.

"Great view of the Gulf on a family friendly budget"
The view and beach access were great. The room was clean and I loved the brick walls between the rooms. The elevator and bathrooms are old and need updated. The breakfast is cereal and mini muffins, could be much better. Overall for a family friendly budget it was worth the stay.

The location is great on the Seawall, but the hotel is very old without updates. Lots of ants on the balcony and pool area, the bed was broken and dirty carpets. Would not stay there again.

"Feels like Trump is running the hotel"
Awful. The only good thing is the ac blows really cold and the pool is nice and the place is by the beach. There's a sheriff there that just sits there and stares you down while he watches tv so he made grabbing snacks and drinks a bit uncomfortable in the lobby. Luckily we didn't have to stay there long and most our time was at the beach.

"Nice hotel- close to the beach...but very noisy"
The facilities were great and the convenience of being across the street from the beach was exactly what we wanted. However, just be prepared and bring earplugs because being on seawall blvd is extremely noisy. I'm in Galveston 3-4 times a year and it's always very busy so this isn't a new thing. Just expect the noise.

"Find another hotel..."
The shower is for short people! I'm only 5'11" and I had to bend way down just to shower. The TV reception was terrible and the room wouldn't cool down enough. If I had it to do over again I would pay the extra money and stay somewhere else.

"Good value for the money"
The Commodore is a no frills motel that's very basic, but clean and conveniently located across the street from the beach. It's a good value for the price and I would stay here again. The pool is large and clean. They offer a continental breakfast and afternoon cookies. It's within walking distance to some good restaurants.

"Good location but did not meet expectations."
I couldn't turn on the shower. I never had that problem any where else. I wish the room had a table for dining and using my computer. The room was clean but did not have a refrigerator or microwave. We have come to expect that in a room at that price. We will probably stay elsewhere next time. There are so many places to stay in Galveston.

About the only thing we liked was that it was close to the beach and other attractions. As far as the room we were only there basically to sleep but when the maids came we were still left with trash and no clean towels and we had ants the whole time we were there. The hotel it's nice but I think they need to lower their rates if there are soany restrictions.

"Older hotel but clean and close to the beach"
Older hotel but it was clean....the beds were comfortable. The brick walls made the room more soundproof so my kids could play. It was located right across from the beach and several nice restaurants. The breakfast was not hot but it was acceptable. My only complaint was that my room was not ready when I checked in.

"Clean, Comfortable, and Great Location"
We have stayed at The Commodore several times over many decades...we love the location and all of the balcony ocean views. We were pleasantly surprised with our visit this time...the management had remodeled/refreshed guest rooms. We had stayed there 4-5 yrs ago and the declining condition of the place made us wonder if we would return. I am so pleased we went back...very clean, comfortable, and great location!

"thanks but no thanks"
The only thing this hotel has going for it is location and friendly staff. We have stayed twice now (Hoping our moldy menu on the first stay was a housekeeping oversight) but sadly were disappointed yet again. Obvious wear and tear on the structure could have been overlooked (after all who needs doors that close completely when there are chains and deadbolt right) beds barely big enough for 2 "normal" size people but the icing on the cake was the bathtub that was litterally 3 foot long and looked better suited to a dog grooming business

The views are excellent. Our room appeared nice until we tried the shower. The water pressure was like 3rd world country. Very slow and the toilet had pipes exposed. Very outdated. No real closet to keep your clothes hung. We were disappointed with the so called continental breakfast. The muffin and coffee were all that was offered. We will not return.

"Last time upgraded, 1950's ?"
The location is awesome ! Parking is a bit suspect, air conditioning is poor, the free breakfast is nothing more than packaged muffins and dry cereal. The elevator has no AC, it was extremely hot and slow. The room was clean and the pool is pretty nice, and good access to the beach. If your looking for an inexpensive stay on Seawall Blvd, this is an ok place. If you prefer more comforts, pay a little more and pick another location.

"Disappointed"
I picked this hotel for its location, and while the staff was friendly and helpful, that's where the positives ended. The door didn't even close to our bathroom. That's a pretty basic expectation when you book a room. The bed was also incredibly uncomfortable, another important factor when booking a hotel room.
